Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with home insemination
13 DPO today, and I just got a positive! Conception was a little unorthodox. My husband has trouble with the pressure of ejaculating during intercourse when we’re trying to conceive (it’s a thing). For 4 cycles we tried ‘manual relief’ and then inserting the sperm with a softcup. No dice. Doctor gave me a syringe to suck the sperm into, with a long pipette attachment to try instead. I could insert it so the end of the pipette was right against my cervix - it worked! This was the first month trying this method! We inseminated both the day before ovulation and the day of. Here are the symptoms I noted: 3&4 DPO - extreme fatigue! ‘Spacy’ feeling. Funny taste in mouth. 5 DPO - tired, light headache 6 DPO - tired, light headache. 7 DPO - increase in white CM. Very slight nausea after eating. 8 DPO - still lots of CM. Slight nausea after eating. 9&10 DPO - still lots of white CM. Also, noticed no new acne. Typically I can set a clock to some acne before my period. 11 DPO - a bit of cramping, still CM. 12 DPO - quite a lot of light cramping through the day. Usually I don’t have any cramping prior to my period - just after it’s started. I also usually get headaches in the days leading up to my period - this month, nada. 13 DPO - expected period! I let myself test, finally - very clear, standard positive!! Note: I never felt any breast tenderness/tingling!
