Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP today with almost no symptoms!
I just wanted to write this as an encouragement to other women who have nearly no symptoms. I've been married before and tried to conceive for a short time with my ex-husband. Plus, when I wasn't trying to conceive, I would imagine myself pregnant nearly every month I was sexually active. I've experienced almost every pregnancy symptom during my non-pregnant cycles.
I turned 38 in March and my fiance and I agreed to start trying this past month. Last month, we weren't "not trying". We BD'd around my time of ovulation (in hind sight, I think I ovulated earlier than I thought I did). I had every symptom from after ovulation. My nipples were sensitive, tingling, always erect and in pain. I even spotted 4 days before my period and had some pretty bad period cramps. Turns out I wasn't pregnant.
This month, I didn't really record every little symptom because I didn't want to drive myself crazy (like I always do). Here's a timeline of what happened.
CD 9-10: BD. Yellow tinged ewcm on CD 9. Lots of ewcm both days.
CD 11: I think this is when I ovulated. I have a 30 day cycle and I should be ovulating around CD 14 or 15. But I've noticed from keeping symptoms on my calendar that I usually have ewcm around day 11-12. This month I had creamy cm by CD 12.
1 DPO- 21 DPO: No sore nipples or breasts, no extra CM. Slight nausea when I haven't eaten in a long time and light headed. Frequent visits to the bathrooms.
4, 17 & 19 DPO: BD. Some nights we actually tried but I was dry and we didn't have any lube. My fiance was worried to use his spit (sorry, TMI) because I told him that it was bad for the sperm. Funny, when we did conceive, my fiance did use spit because he didn't know about it being bad for sperm yet.
19 - 20 DPO - Yellow CM, snotlike. Burst of creamy white CM once.
19 DPO - sharp pain in my left ovaries.
20 DPO - light pinching around my belly button
21 DPO - BFP. 2 days late CD 32.
That's it really. I've experienced light cramping here and there but nothing I haven't experienced before. I'm still in shock!!! I had ordered some preseed and ovulation kit because I thought I was out for the month. Go figure!
Supplements I used, red raspberry leaf tea, evening primrose oil, coQ10, maca. I also eat a plant based vegan diet.
