Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on CD 75!!
Hey guys, like most of you I frequented this site almost everyday while TTC and wanted to share my story with you all. There is hope for ridiculously long, irregular cycles! I'm 24 got off BCP in late August. We were doing the whole "not trying not preventing" thing but I was tracking so I tried to steer our BD'ing toward when I thought i was most fertile ;). Well my cycles being so crazy and unpredictable it was all pretty much a best guess thing. My first period after coming off BCP was 42 days the next was 54. I did not temp or use OPK's, all I did was pay attention to CM and track my CD on a calendar. I thought that I was ovulating at around CD 40, so we BD'd, but when I tested I got a BFN. Well then about 2 weeks after that around New Years' I had a lot of clearish watery CM (not even EWCM like I have had, just super water and a lot of it) and I also was feeling a little more horny then usual (tmi). DH and I BD'd that day (1/1) and 1/3. Took a test 1/14--BFN. I figured that if I had ovulated when I suspected I should be getting my period no later than 1/5, so I took another test 1/17 and got a BFP!! I couldn't believe it so I took another and same thing!! Went to the doc, their test came back negative so I got my blood drawn and just got the call this morning that my HCG level is 54! I go back on Fri to make sure the levels are rising.
Sorry this was kind of long, but I really wanted to share my story. As far as symptoms, really if I wasn't hunting for them I would not have noticed anything. Had a few cramps leading up to BFP, and still have some esp. in the evenings. They are much more mild than AF and feel more "sharp" than achy. My CM is a small amt of yellowish, thin. Oh and the other different thing was I noticed waking up feeling warm...I wasn't drenched in sweat, but I felt a little on my back in the mornings.
Anyway good luck to each of you, don't lose hope...even you ladies with nutty cycles can get a BFP!
