Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Breastfeeding, TTC #2, BFP 15DPO
I wanted to post because I feel like I saw very few posts by breastfeeding women. Today is 15 DPO and I took my first test. My DS is 14 months old. My cycle returned around 7 months pp, and became regular around 11 months pp. DS nurses 1-2 times per day (morning and night).
BD'd CD9, CD10 and CD12. O was likely CD13. I don't temp - just track CM.
O - CM was lesser than previous days. Feeling pretty normal.
1DPO to 6DPO: no real symptoms. DS had hand-foot-and-mouth and a cold. I caught his cold.
7DPO-9DPO: shedding uterine lining? Or particles in urine? Not sure what's going on here
9DPO-10DPO: feeling more aroused
10DPO - present: feeling pregnant - uterus feels like something is there - just a general awareness; nursing makes me feel sleepier than normal
11DPO - present: smelly urine (but less pungent than beginning of 1st pregnancy), slight increase in CM (dry throughout entire 1st pregnancy), very slight breast tingles. May not have even noticed them if I weren't TTC and hyper-focused on symptoms
13DPO - present: slightly more tired, but only very slightly; peeing lots (and I already pee a ton)
15DPO: strong BFP on FRER at 8pm. I don't test until I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant - I fear BFNs!
Nothing especially telling or exciting, except for my smelly urine. But strong positive, and just had a feeling that I was pregnant. Many nursing moms seem to report fewer symptoms while breastfeeding in very early pregnancy than they experienced in early pregnancy with their first.
Best of luck to all of you out there TTC while nursing! Hoping my bean sticks!
