Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Detailed Daily Update before BFP
My husband and I have been NTNP for about a year and nothing ever happened. I always thought, "Oh I'll just never get pregnant..."
Buuuut, I carefully tracked all my symptoms, CM and moods for the past year and got really in tune with my body.
It's funny, but this month, I just knew I was pregnant...
Here is my detailed blog:
Bd'd 11/24 twice and ovulation around 11/26
UPDATE 11/30 (4DPO):
I am all over the map..
*CM has become creamy and a super pale yellow color, zero odor...
*Strong cramping in abdomen today
*No breast pain, which usually starts pretty quickly after ovulation, but that has fluctuations.
*Very weepy, moody, tired.
*Headache, swollen throat, runny nose
*Terrible lower backache about 3 days ago
*Soft/High cervix yesterday and today
UPDATE 12/1 (5DPO):
*Yellowish snotty discharge at wake
*Stuffed up nose
*Still no breast soreness..
Starting to think i'm out this month.
UPDATE 12/2 (6DPO):
*Still no breast soreness, which is very unusual for me. My breasts usually hurt a lot after ovulation.
*Cervix feels a lot firmer and CM (cervical mucus) is still lotiony and a very pale yellow when wiped onto tissue
UPDATE 12/3 (7DPO):
*Creamy light yellow CM
*No breast tenderness at all
*Shooting pain next to left pelvic bone for just a moment
*Sinus cold really bad
UPDATE 12/4 (8DPO):
*Sinus headache and nasal drainage really bad yesterday and today
*BD'd with hubby, so no CM (cervical mucus) check
*Minor lighting bolt like cramping on left side again this morning for about 5sec, just like previous this week..no constipation (typical before period)
*Grumpy, weepy, tired
*Still no breast soreness...still a shred of hope...
*9pm-10:30pm weird cramping on left side of lower abdomen.
*Burst into tears watching a T.V. show about a couple agreeing to TTC (trying to conceive) lol
*I feel kind of light headed and almost 'tipsy' but clearly not drinking lol
UPDATE 12/6 (10DPO):
*Still no breast soreness, always get sore boobs after ovulation.
*CM lotiony, but a little thinner and less of it
*Had a wonderful dinner with hubby and then got really cranky with some family stuff and it took me like 10min to calm down (what was that??)
*Very subtle abdominal cramping
*Sinus' going nuts..coughing, stuffed up, sore throat. Thinking I may have just skipped ovulation this month due to cold. Looking to test in 2 days at 12DPO and if neg, I'll try at 14DPO.
UPDATE 12/7 (11DPO):
* I couldn't help, but take a test this morning...stupid, AF (Aunt Flo - menstruation/period) not due till Saturday lol clearly Neg
*Thin lotiony CM, but not much. Still slightly yellow when wiped onto tissue
*No breast soreness STILL!!
*Super stuffed up, cold WILL NOT GO AWAY
UPDATE 12/8 (12DPO):
No sore boobs yet, but period cramps started around 7pm. Started on right side and spread across my abdomen lol exactly 1 week before MyDays app predicts my next period :) hoping thats a good sign!
*Cold just WONT GO AWAY
*Thin, lotiony CM with very very light yellow when wiped on tissue, otherwise it looks white
UPDATE 12/9 (13DPO):
*Thought I had a positive, but fairly certain its an evaporation line. I waited over 20min to check bc I was taking a bath. I think AF (Aunt Flo - menstruation/period) is on her way..
*Feeling tired, sickish, just crummy all day at work..period cramps coming and going all day and just slightly nauseous/feverish all afternoon.
*Blowing nose all night, all stuffed up
UPDATE 12/10 (14DPO):
*Woke up with light period cramps, no period
*Boobs still not sore...
*Blew nose with 2 Klennex and so much came out I needed 3 more tissues. Nose is just draining like crazy and its clear, so IDK whats going on..
*Took two First Response Tests and both clearly positive.
UPDATE 12/11 (15DPO):
*Very light period cramps
*Another cheapie test and a darker BFP
My biggest symptoms were LACK of breast soreness (in months where we didn't conceive, the egg would dissolve and release progesterone and I would get sore boobs) and constant runny nose; many women get the excess of CM, but I got a super stuffy nose as my body lowered its immune system to let the little "invader" implant :)
Hope someone finds this useful!! I read soooo many of these over the last year wondering when it was going to be my turn! Best wishes to you ladies!!!
