Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP- Unexpected symptoms list- Must read!! 2018

Hey Ladies, This is my first time posting here, I want to share my experience with you, hopefully it could help another sister somewhere :) My cycles are from 24 days to 27 days. I usually ovulate around day 12, I had sex once on day 11 and day 15. I didn't track my ovulation. I used lubricant (we were rushing to get busy, no time for full on fore play lol) I was not trying for a baby, I wasn't preventing one either, although I did use preseed, I have always used this because it is generally better for our insides! They should market this for TTC as well as trying to stay healthy. I got a positive pregnancy test on the day before my expected period 12DPO, boxing day. It was very faint. I will list my symptoms and comment on the stereotypical symptoms that are generally looked for. Implantation bleed: I didn't have this at all. I had a lower back ache, on the right hand side for about 3 days from 8DPO.I believe this may have been my implantation. During this painful time -_- I had a tiny spot of pink cm, so tiny I could've missed it. I always look at a tissue after wiping (bad habit). I have recently started getting lower back aches as a period sign, so I just ignored it. --Increased CM: I didn't have this either. The day of my exp period, I did have ewcm which was very unusual for me. It wasn't a lot either. --Sore chest: This I did have from about 9DPO. It wasn't extreme pain, I've had worse with a normal period. My bbs have increased a bit in size too. Again, I believed it could be my period. --Increased appetite: I haven't eaten properly in three days!! No appetite. --Frequent urination: My bladder was pretty normal lol! --Mood swings: I wasn't as emotional as I am before a period. But from the day of my exp period, I felt different. Basically, the only major symptom that made me think I may be pregnant was: CONTRACTIONS after intercourse 13DPO. They lasted for like 5-10 minutes and my lower abdomen was cramping like crazy. It had never happened before. I had more symptoms with my period than I do pregnancy. I was planning to start trying for a baby in 2019. I wasn't over the moon when I found out, but I am warming to the idea of becoming a mum. I'm in my late twenties, but I don't think I have lived enough yet. There's no perfect time, i'm going to go for it and stay positive. God bless and good luck ladies!!!!DISCLAIMER: I hate the term 'baby dust' but how about my honest advice, do not stress, do not bother with all these crazy trackers and checking CM. Do not balance on your head after intercourse lol, I did NONE of that. My attitude was that God will bless me, I shouldn't have to work so hard for something so natural. I prayed to God for a baby and successful pregnancy earlier this year. I just wasn't trying for it now or expecting it so soon, I was forward thinking. It may not work for everyone, but keep the right attitude and avoid looking for stereotypical symptoms, you may be different, like me! Lovely A xoxox
