Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
First BFP after 2yrs ttc, no symptoms and was sure AF was coming!
Hi ladies, I can't believe I am finally able to tell this story! DH (34) and I (32) have been ttc for 2 years and I just got my first BFP!! I really think it was all due to soft cups and Geritol which were the only things we tried differently the last cycle. I temped everyday and about 4 days before AF was due I had a major drop in temp so I started to count us out this cycle. I stopped temping that day and just went about the rest of the week like AF was coming. I had a little bit of brown spotting 2 days before AF was due which was normal for me. Fast forward to 18DPO and still no AF, but I've had 2 previous cycles ( a year apart) where she was over a week late, so I was still counting us out. I had none of the "normal" pregnancy symptoms, no sore boobs, sense of smell was the same, no weird dreams, no extra creamy cm. The spotting stopped but I still didn't think about testing. I already had a pre-conception/fertility appt scheduled with my dr the next day so I figured she would tell me it was just one of those cycles again. Typical appt, pee in a cup, but this time when they did a PT it came back positive!!! Did a HCG test as well and it was positive!! I was in shock!! The next morning, (bc I peed on so many sticks I wanted to finally see that BFP myself) I took a HPT and there it was! PREGNANT! I hope my story gives someone ttc a little bit of hope to not count yourself out! There were so many times I symptom watched or came on here and tried to compare symptoms and when I finally got my BFP there wasn't one symptom there for me to notice! Everyone is different! Baby dust to all!!
