Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP! TTC For 1 Year And A Half, Pcos, And On A Break.
Holy Smokes! I can’t believe I am posting on here, I've stalked it for about a year and a half. My story is pretty crazy. I have PCOS, so I don’t ovulate very often. I spent all last year on Clomid and letrezole, and had to drive an hour to my fertility specialist twice a month. I ovulated on both Clomid and letrezole but never could get pregnant. The stress was really starting to get to DH and I, so we decided to take a break. About two weeks ago I noticed some slight nipple tenderness and I thought maybe I’m ovulating. I decided not to tell DH because I didn’t want to put too much pressure on him. Well the next day I found an ovulation test under my sink and thought I just go ahead and see. Well it was positive! My niece is staying with me so we didn’t get another chance to BD so I thought for sure we missed our chance. I still had the nipple tenderness so I Just figured my AF was coming. Two weeks and 3 HPTs later.. BFP! Here are my symptoms:
0DPO: Nipple Tenderness (BD)
1DPO-6DPO : Nipple Tenderness, Positive OPK
2DPO-6DPO: Nipples less tender, VERY gassy (sorry if TMI)
6DPO-13DPO: Nipples are tender off and on, still gassy, Breast begin to swell (that has never happened before AF).
14DPO: Breasts still swollen and its very noticeable. They are tender on the bottom when poked, almost like a sore muscle. CRAMPS! I started cramping in the morning and all day I was sure AF was coming at any minute. I went to the bathroom constantly to check.
15DPO: Breasts still swollen, Cramping off and on all day. Still checking for aunt flow constantly. Sensitive to smells. My niece was eating something with hot sauce on it and it was like all I could smell was vinegar. It didn’t make my stomach turn but it was ALL I could smell. That’s when I decided to go to the dollar store for some HPT’s. I got a VERY faint positive on the first one. DH convinced me to take another one about 10 minutes later, so I did. Another faint positive. So we went and bought the digital test that says the word “pregnant” and a few hours later, SURE Enough BFP!!!!!!!!!
We are so excited! We have wanted this for SO long! We are praying for a sticky, healthy baby! This just goes to show when you relax and stop stressing it does miracles. Everyone kept saying “take a break, relax and it will happen” I should have listened a long time ago.
