Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with one Fallopian Tube After Ectopic!
I figured since I couldn't stop reading these during my TWW I would share with you all my success after ONE month of trying with an Ovulation Predictor Kit! Plus, I didn't come across too many posts for women TTC with one Fallopian Tube.
After reading reviews on Amazon I ordered the Easy@Home OPK kit that came with 50 LH strips and 20 HCG (for only $20!, like, really?!). So, I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2013, and they removed my right Fallopian tube. For ladies with only one tube, YOU MOST CERTAINLY CAN STILL CONCEIVE!
So, my first positive ovulation test was on CD 15. Though I think I ovulated on CD 16. AND I felt the O pain from my RIGHT side/ovary. So those stories about Fallopian Tubes being able to pick up an egg that ovulated from the opposite ovary are TRUE! (Plus I asked my OB/GYN and she said yes it is true.)
Had sex CD15, 16,17 & 18.
1DPO- No symptoms
2-5 DPO- Yeast Infection accompanied by weird smelling urine that ended up going away on it's own.
6-8 DPO- No symptoms.
9 DPO- Cramping in uterus (implantation?) and sore breasts/ armpit area.
10 DPO- FAINTEST of faint lines on HCG strips. Thought I was seeing things. Boyfriend saw something too though. Tried another one that night, negative. Sore breasts/ armpits.
11 DPO- Tested again with FMU, negative. Used same urine and dipped another test, this time another VERY FAINT line appeared. Okay... now I'm confused. Couldn't wait, ran out and got a FRER, tested with mid-day/ afternoon urine and BFP! Faint, but MUCH more noticeable than on the cheaper test strips. Sore breasts/ armpits.
12 DPO- Tested with FMU on both FRER and cheaper tests. Cheap tests still VERY faint line. But the FRER came back quick! and a tad darker than 11DPO!
Symptoms I did NOT have:
Metal taste in mouth
Wishing you all the best of luck and sprinkling baby dust to you all!!
I highly recommend an OPK kit, simply because timing is everything.
