Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP Symptoms to help others
I wanted to post my symptoms because I know how much they helped me when searching for symptoms. I am 38 yr old and DH is 45. We have 4 kids, 20, 18, 16 and 3. I wanted to have one more so my little one wouldn't grow up alone. I was worried because of my age that I would have a hard time conceiving. This is my second month ttc. My Cycle started on April 24th Pretty sure I O'd on May 8th or 9th (do not temp or use opk's) We BD on CD 12, 14 & 15 1DPO - felt spasm on lower left side, lasted for like 10 seconds, felt like when you get a twitch in your eye. 2DPO - Very tender in pelvis and tender during sex, corpus luteum cyst forming?? CP: mid, soft, closed CM: Creamy mixed with some ewcm 3DPO - Still tender in pelvic region but not as bad. CP: same CM: Same with more ewcm?? 4DPO - tenderness went away, felt normal as I do every other cycle. CP: same. CM: Some tacky white with moments of ewcm, the super clear stretchy kind. 5DPO-7DPO - felt same as every cycle CP stayed the same, Only different symptom was the ewcm that I kept getting was the same as during O. Very abnormal. 8DPO - Same 9DPO - ewcm stopped and have creamy CM. Had pain shoot through uterus but was more concentrated on right which was weird cause O'd on my left, implantation?? Had bad diarreah, sorry for the tmi ;) CP: mid, felt like tip of nose and very closed. 10DPO-11DPO - Started feeling like AF coming, same cramps and heavy feeling. Was so strong I had a dream I started and woke up crying and ran to bathroom to check but nothing. Had super vivid dreams every night. CP: mid, felt like tip of nose still and closed. CM: went from watery and milky colored to creamy and back again, was strange. Also, had a couple moments of pale yellow thick ewcm type when I would wipe, mucus plug forming?? Felt like I had to pee but would go and would not be that much come out, over and over. 12DPO AF Cramps not as bad, in fact hardly at all. Felt slightly achy down there. CP: same but feels tightly closed. CM: Still watery and a little creamy mixed together. Still more pale yellow ewcm mixed in. Starting to suspect I am pregnant. Plus I always start my period 2 to 3 days early every month. 14DPO: took test with FMU amd faint positive. CP is very, very high and can't even reach it, feel very soft and CM is very creamy and white snd lots of it. Getting the pulling pains I remeber from my last ones. Breasts are slightly tingly and sore. Have to pee a lot. Heart palpitations, burping a lot. I know they say u get constipated but not me, I have to go twice as much ;) Today I am 2 days late, have headache from the fluctuating hormones, breasts getting heavier but not really sore, hungry, tired, pubic bone pain, slight nausea when waking, lots of Creamy white CM, tender pelvic area with off and on mild cramping and pulling. Sorry for the long winded list. I just know when i was looking, I liked descriptive symptom lists. I can say that when they say it feels like AF is coming, that is exactly what it felt like. I just knew I was out. To all you lovely ladies searching for your signs I pray that God blesses you with a happy, healthy sticky bean!
