Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Cool, Calm, Uncollected!
For the past 4 months I have only imagined adding my BFP by DPO story to this wonderful board. And for the past 4 months I have bored my poor DH by making him follow me around and record my symptoms like I was on my very on reality show! But it has now paid off as we have finally received or BFP! This was the first month that we didn't "try as hard" We decided to BD on OV day, skip a day, and BD three days straight. I don't think we actually stuck with that plan as it was around Thanksgiving! But whatever we did, worked! So without further ado let's jump into it!
1DPO-4DPO: No symptoms
5DPO: Felt like hot pain shooting through my lower back. I had this backache all day and night!
6DPO: Diarrhea! I woke up and hour before my alarm went off and dashed to the bathroom! I couldn't even stay at work all day because I was so sick from it!
7-8 DPO: No symptoms. I was so tempted to POAS but I was able to resist the urge!
9DPO: All urge resisting FAILED! I caved in and POAS...Ok, ok SEVERAL sticks!! BFN!
10DPO: Woke up in the middle of the night wheezing! Why was I wheezing? I don't have asthma and I didn't have a cold! By morning, I had could hear cold in my chest and my cough sounded horrible. It was weird because I didn't feel sick!!
11DPO: All hope of a BFP was lost, I just dismissed the idea and blamed myself for not sticking to the BD schedule I had planned. Later in the day, I stood up out of my seat and got dizzy. I had to stand still for a few seconds to gather myself.. Weird!
12DPO: Had a headache all day and decided to go home early. I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few items for dinner. While on the Elevator heading home, I had a sudden strong urge to pee. So I hurried inside and placed the groceries on the counter. I saw the bag of Wondfo Pregnancy Test on the nightstand and figured, why not! After POAS, I didn't bother waiting for the results, I just washed my hands and went back to the kitchen. Honestly, I had forgotten all about the Pregnancy Test. I simply went on about the rest of my evening. An hour of so later, I went into the bathroom and there was the most faint line ever! I had been eyeballing those Wondfo test for 4 months now and I new that it was definitely something there! Since the test was over and hour old, I picked my self up off the floor (lol) and went to the pharmacy to get a digital test. Only problem was.. I didn't have to pee anymore!!! OMG!! So...I had to wait...But long story short, I received my BFP on 12DPO and I have been picking myself up off the floor every since!
To the ladies before me, THANK YOU! Your stories have kept me sane these last 4 months! I never knew I would care so much about another woman's pee and vomit! lol And to the ladies that will come after me.. Keep trying, Don't give up and when that glorious day of BFP's come, pick yourself up off the floor and tell us about it!
