Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Finally a BFP 13 DPO!
We've been trying since December and we're thrilled to finally get a BFP! I'm 35 and my husband is 36 so we were getting a bit anxious when month after month we were unsuccessful. In previous months, we've done the SMEP schedule pretty religiously. I also took Fertile CM supplement 3x per day and this cycle I added Mucinex 2x per day starting the day my OPK came up positive through CD 16 when we stopped BDing.
OPK was positive on CD 11, so likely O'd on CD 12.
BD on CD 10, 11, 12, 14, and 16. Legs up for about 20-30 mins each time afterwards.
Started 2 slices of pineapple 3 DPO and had 2 slices each day (with core) for the next 4 days.
10 DPO I started having spotting after using the toilet. Bright pink and never enough to seep into a pantyliner. Smells started to get really intense. Slight nausea in the morning, but nothing too bad. Some on and off headaches.
Concerned about the spotting I took a test and got our BFP 13 DPO. The spotting continued for a full week from when it started and then stopped.
Tested again on 17 DPO one day after my missed period just to be sure!
Praying this is a healthy babe. Will see the doctor in another month or so to confirm all is well.
Best of luck to you all!! It felt a little nuts doing all of the above, but it the most worth it kind of nuts looking back. :)
