BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with cramping!

I wanted to share my TTC symptoms. Here is my story:

I am so happy to be able to post on this site. It has been extremely informative and educational for me.

DH and I are both 29 and healthy people. We started TTC 4 months ago. This month, what we did different was: go on vacation, not use any lubricant or preseed (instead actually used foreplay), relax as much as possible. I also used OPK for the first time and we BD every other day.

1 DPO: big + on OPK (BD that day)
2 DPO: big + on OPK (BD that day)
3-7 DPO: nothing noticeable
8 DPO: cramping. Sharp pains in my right side, very low, near ovaries. Sore BBs (normal for me at this time)
9 DPO: cramping, same pain on same side. BBs sore.
10-12 DPO: cramping, same pain but moved towards middle. BBs sore.
13 DPO: bad AF cramping. Thought AF was on her way.
14 DPO: bad AF cramping mixed with the other sharp-pain type of cramping.
15 DPO: spotting. Thought AF was here and it was all over. It was bright red when I wiped (tmi I know!) and then small discharge of brown stuff during the day (very little). BBs sore (this was weird, usually go away when AF arrives)
16 DPO: spotting stopped but very pink when wipe. BBs still sore. Took a HPT in the morning on FR and got a very fast BFP!!!!! Took a HPT in the afternoon (this one EPT) and got fast BFP!!!!
17 DPO: woke up with DH at 4 am to do a clear blue digital HPT and within a minute, it said "Pregnant"!!!!!

We are thrilled. Called the doctor who told me not to come in until I'm 6 weeks; scheduled for August 15 appt. I'm sooo excited! I'm going to keep praying and be as good as I can be to ensure it all works out.

Keep up the hard work ladies. It will pay off, I'm sure of it!

Baby dust to all!
