Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on break cycle
I am 35 plus, and have been ttc for over a year now. Six months into trying we started visiting fertility doctors who put me on clomid, and a pregnyl shot for better timing. We did this for 5 cycles with no luck. It was all getting mechanical, coupled with my general hysteria every month when getting AF, there was a bit of a strain on both of us. So we decided to take a break for 3 months, continue to try but in a more relaxed way, and after three months go in for a laproscopy. This was the third month, and the miracle happened! Here are my pregnancy symptoms;
0-2 dpo : nothing different at all
3-4 dpo : cramping on and off for two days, which was strange because usually I cramp around day 6 - 8
Usually by 7dpo my breasts get very heavy and start to hurt. This month there was absolutely nothing. No enlarging and no pain. They actually felt like they do when AF arrives. This was one of the first signs that something was different this time..
10dpo : cramping on my right side, but not exactly near my ovary. Convinced that this cycle is also a goner.
12dpo : feeling very very warm all day, and sever so slight sickish feeling in the morning. Hot flushes in the night and cramping. Had weird dreams about things going on in the womb and eggs speaking to each other, and saying this time it worked. Figured I had finally come to the point where I need therapy...
14dpo :dull ache continues on the right side. BBT is still not going down, which is also unusual because by now its on its way down or AF is here. And feeling.So took a test and saw a very very very faint line, not totally convinced that my eyes were not playing tricks on me so kept it to myself. At 3 pm I took the test again and this time there was no doubt - BFP!!!!
Honestly I think I had more early pregnancy symptoms during other cycles!!
