Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with No EWCM

This month has been so crazy for us that I was sure it was a bust. I never had EWCM or anything indicating that I had O'd. It was only my 2nd month off BC, so I thought my body hadn't adjusted yet. Boy was I wrong!

This is my first pregnancy, so I have read and reread everyone's symptoms on every TTC forum I could find, and I hate to say it but I had hardly any symptoms AT ALL! I am only 5 1/2 weeks along, so I'm sure a lot of them are still on their way. Anyways, here is my story.

Like I said, I had no indications that I O'd. My temps raised slightly, but no EWCM or anything.
My bb's starting hurting 2 weeks earlier than normal (right around the time I should have O'd) so I thought I was going to start my AF early. They hurt the same amount as they normally would around AF. I broke out on my face, neck, and back, but I thought it was due to the fact that I just stopped taking BC. My legs would cramp up during the day, but not at night.
As the weeks wore on, my bb's became more and more tender.

I finally tested with a dollar store test in the evening on 10 DPO and got a BFN. I threw it away and went to bed. That night I had the most vivid dream over and over again. I kept dreaming that I would get out of bed, go into the bathroom, pull the test out of the garbage, and it would be positive! It was so realistic that when I woke up in the morning I immediatly pulled the test out of the garbage. It was a BFP!!! I just stared at it in disbelief and then took a FR test, which turned positive right away. Both test were EXTREMELY faint positives, but that was to be expected as I hadn't even missed my period yet.

Now I am 5 1/2 weeks along. My bb's are WAY more tender than when I got the BFP. I pee all the time, and I am sooo tired all the time-but I wake up at 6 am every morning just starving. It is so intense that I can't go back to sleep.

Oh, and I have had cramps this whole time. Sometimes they wake me up in the night.
It still doesn't seem real that I having a little baby growing inside me. Good luck to all those who are trying! Lots of baby dust to you!
