Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with painful twinges in uterus

In September '05, after having been together for five years, DB and I got pregnant. Sadly, we lost the baby in December. In March of this year, we got married and decided to TTC the following month. We used OPKs but no luck for at first. This month I got a perfect OPK reading and we did BD on day 11 and 13 of my cycle. Around the time of ovulation, I did notice stringy CM while in the shower and did experience slight ovulation cramps. Here are my symptoms post ovulation.

1,2 dpo - nothing
3 dpo - sharp searing pain in uterus lasted only a second or two
4,5 dpo - twinges of pain in uterus periodically
6 dpo - twinges continue, felt like I was catching a cold in the pm-stuffy nose
7,8 dpo - painful twinges continue, abdomen feels full, like slight AF cramps
9 dpo - BBs start to feel heavy, right BB hurts on outer part; I feel extra warm, like I have a temperature
10 dpo - decide to try a HPT and got a BFN
11 dpo - now left BB hurts too
12 dpo - BBs are tender. I tried a HPT again and almost threw it out at 3 minutes but started to see a faint BFP!
13 dpo - same w/ BBs, some cramps, feel like AF is coming, BFP is a little darker though
14 dpo - decided not to test. Had a bit of bleeding in the morning. I was so sad thinking it was v. early m/c
15 dpo - No more spotting, so took one last HPT and got a very convincing BFP!

I think the twinges of pain really tipped me off because I normally don't have that during my cycle! It definitely felt like something was happening down in my uterus. : ) I'm really pleased and am praying for a healthy, happy pregnancy. Best wishes to everyone!
