Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with NO symptoms
I don't know how many times I have read through the stories on this board, looking for hope or reassurance. There is just no way that I wasn't going to come back and post my own, so here goes:
We have been trying since January and almost every month that has gone by, I've been "sure" that I have one or more symptoms, only for AF to arrive, right on time.
Much to my amazement, I received my BFP on Friday morning. The line was faint, but definitely there - no squinting required - and came up within the first 2 minutes. I have subsequently pee'd on a stick every morning since to watch the line get darker (which it has), and to remind myself that I really AM pregnant and not making it all up ;)
This is because I HAVE NO SYMPTOMS! None. Zip. Zero. I feel as normal as any other day. The only reason I tested when I did was because I had a very vivid dream about being pregnant. Now, I know that some may call that a symptom, but I don't think it counts. This lack of symptoms is so complete that I have POAS at least twice every day since Friday and have had 2 blood tests. My beta numbers have come back with a doubling time of 31 hours, so the levels are really racing up, and yet, I HAVE NO SYMPTOMS!
No sore breasts; no nausea; no fatigue; no funny taste or super sense of smell; no headaches; no backache; no cramp... NADA.
I am very grateful that I have had such an easy ride so far - long may it last... although I suspect that I might get blindsided in a few days or weeks, lol! But if it's part of having a healthy bub, I say bring it on. If nothing else, some symptoms would reassure me that I am not just imagining it all!
Anyway, I wanted to post this as a ray of hope to all of you desperately wanting your BFP and not experiencing any symptoms. It can and does happen!
Much love and baby dust to all
