BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP- our rainbow baby after a MC in December :)

I'm so excited to finally be able to share our story. This site helped me stay sane & I loved reading others' stories while on my own TTC journey, I hope mine encourages some of you too! So i ovulated on 3/26 according to OPKs, my hubby & I BD'd the day before & day after ovulation. Here are my symptoms: 1-6 DPO: some cramps occasionally, noticed my temps were higher than normal (hovering somewhere between 98.6 & 100, normally I have a low body temp around 97.6) 7 DPO: very crampy, temp went down to about 98. was out eating dinner & suddenly felt sharp stabbing pain behind/slightly below my belly button. Pain lasted about 30 seconds & then went away. I'm thinking this was implantation. 8 DPO: felt very under the weather, tired, temp shot way up to 100! 9 DPO: tired, irritable, temp around 99. BFN on hpt (I knew it was too early but couldn't resist) 10 DPO: temp still up (99.5), AF cramps so thought maybe I wasn't pregnant after all. Tested again, BFN. 11 DPO: still very crampy, still high temps. Take clearblue hpt, see VERY faint line (so faint I'm squinting to see it) so think it must be an evap & throw it out 12 DPO: really awful AF-like cramps but lots of energy, take frer test & get another squinter. Still don't want to get my hopes up & vow not to test for another 2 days 13 DPO: lots of energy, happy, feel better than I have in days! Snot-looking CM when I wipe. Caved & took an equate hpt in afternoon, faint BFP!! 14 DPO: test w/ clearblue hpt using FMU, another faint bfp (not a squinter anymore though!) 15 DPO: test with clearblue advanced digital in afternoon, BFP 1-2 weeks! Got my blood drawn today at doc for confirmation, will results tomorrow! My EDD is 12/17/16, which is the same date I had my MC last December. I take it as a good sign, God works in mysterious ways sometimes :) Some things I did to help me conceive: took nature-made prenatals w/DHA daily, took 2-3 GNC fertility blend pills daily, ate raw pineapple from 1 DPO to 8 DPO (supposed to help w/implantation), and prayed a lot!! Good luck to all you ladies & thank you for your support!!
