BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP! SHOCKED, TOLD I DIDNT EVEN OVULATE THIS MONTH!

I told myself that if I ever get a bfp I would post my story so that it could help those going through their TWW and TCC journey. I never knew how frustrating and disappointing this process could be until I started. Trust me, if your anything like me you research things online 120123898 times a day and drive yourself crazy. But one thing to remember, is have faith, it will happen in due time. I have been TTC for 7 mnths now, and I honestly am so used to seeing BFNs that i was completely shocked when this BFP showed up. For months, I would search the internet on every single possible early pregnancy symptom and somehow convince myself that I had each and every one of them every month. I think my mind literally played tricks on me constantly! The funny thing is... this month I actually did the day 3 and day 21 blood tests that check for ovulation and the doctor called me last week saying that my progesterone was at a 5 when it should have been at a 10 (very low)!!!!! It was so low that she said I most likely didn't even ovulate. I told her my cycles were normally 30-35 days so isn't it possible i ovulated later? She hesitated and said well its possible but not likely. LOL guess it was a strong one! Since she told me my progesterone was low, i started looking into VITEX which is supposed to help with low progesterone, ovulation etc. I went to the store last night, bought it and decided to take a pregnancy test before taking it since I had read that it could cause miscarriages. I took a pregnancy test from a couple months ago, and was SHOCKED when it showed up right away with a bfp!!!!! (at 1030pm). I went and bought a ton more tests and all came back positive. I will be calling my dr today and getting a blood test. Now to the good stuff... Things i did differently this month: 1.Held my legs up for a few mins after BD and slept one night without washing down there or standing up (prob only BD twice around ovulation week, not a whole lot this month in general) 2. Been taking one a day womens multivitamin for past 4 months 3. Drank a lot of water, barely any caffeine Since I didnt use an OPK and i dont chart, here are my symptoms that now looking back could have been pregnancy symptoms. They are not by DPO since I have no idea exactly when I even ovulated. 1. Had mild AF like cramping middle of cycle for 2 minutes, then nothing. 2. Went to bed one night, woke up a few times and felt like i was drugged, hot flashes.(week after ovulation) 3. This one REALLY stood out to me because it was weird. For two days, whole body felt itchy!! no rash, and didnt change detergents or anything. 4. One nipple had a burning sensation for like 5 seconds. 5. A little more emotional than usual, teared up at a lot of things on tv that most people probably wouldnt LOL I had read so many things where women said they just "knew" or "felt pregnant". This was not me at all, no sore boobs, no implantation spotting, not really any cramping either except the past couple days which is when AF is suppose to be due so i thought it was just that. All my regular pre-af symptoms were here. I have learned so much from reading everyones posts that I hope this helps someone out there. Do not give up faith or hope, and try not to drive yourself crazy symptom spotting because in my case, i thought i was pregnant every single other month EXCEPT this one! The one month your relaxed and not thinking about it as much, it will happen :-)
