Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP With Late Ovulation!
Ladies, First word of advice, find out when you ovulate!!! I had been trying for months, and every month ended with me in tears and frustration. I was fully assuming I ovulated in the middle of the month. When I finally got my arms around my actual timing, using CBFM, I got pregnant the first month! I ovulate closer to day 22 or 23, I had NO idea and I had always stopped BD'ing by then! DPO 1-6: nothing really, but I will say I just had a hunch. DPO 7: I felt like I was getting a cold, but it never seems to progress. Just congested and itchy throat. DPO 8: Feel felt like I was getting a cold, but it wasn't getting any worse. I was driving in the car and felt a sharp pinch in my lower abdomen. I actually jumped and told my husband it felt like something bit me for about 5 seconds! Then it went away and I felt fine the rest of the day. DPO 9: I felt pretty normal, still dealing with the cold but nothing else really. DPO 10: LOTS of lotiony CM, which was strange for that time of the month, still had a cold. Went for a run and felt exhausted, more than normal so I decided to take it easy. DPO 11: Slightly tinted CM in the morning, thought it was strange but assumed AF was coming. DPO 12: Just for fun took a cheapie internet test, saw a faint line and lost my mind!!! Back hurt a LOT throughout the day and I had loads of CM. DPO 13: Took another test in the morning, saw the line again! Took a FRER in the afternoon and saw a definite line. BFP!!! I kept taking tests for the next few days just to watch the line get darker, and just because I was SO tired of seeing negative tests, I was SO happy to see a BFP! First week I noticed sore breasts, and acne which I NEVER ever have. I was VERY teary and emotional, but in a good way. Lots of back pain which my doctor said I shouldn't have that early but I did. Also had problems eating, I got full really quickly and just felt sick after eating. I am 8 weeks now, couldn't be happier. We saw the little one's heartbeat last week and I bawled my eyes out! Good luck to all! Have fun, have faith, and most importantly, find out exactly when you ovulate! It may not be when you think! Baby dust to all!!!!
