Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

First Time Around...BFP

I am so excited. I had to log on and tell my story because I read all of yours when I was in my tww. So here goes... My husband and I decided on January 1st that we would start trying. I had my Mirena removed on December 5th so, we were expecting that it would take 6 months to a year to conceive. I actually started taking a cocktail of VITEX, Maca, and Tribulus once a day on January 1st because my cycle in December was anovulatory. I watched a fertility specialist on youtube discuss the herbs that she recommends and I was sold. Low and behold, we conceived on the first try. I don't even know how that is possible. But, here is how it all happened: CD 1- 4 Bleeding CD 9,11, and 15 BD (each BD I inserted my Diva Cup before I got up to go to the bathroom and we used pre-seed) CD 15 - positive OPK CD 16 - Suspected ovulation day (fertility friend) 1DPO - Tender breasts everyday until positive pregnancy test and EXTRA EXTRA creamy CM 4DPO - Sharp pain in lower abdomen, dull backaches, tingling in my nostrils, itchy nipples 5DPO-7DPO- Constant cramping. We were snowed-in, so I laid around over the weekend, trying to figure out if my period was starting a week early because of the herbs I started taking. 8DPO- lower back aches, dizziness, and constipation 9DPO - FRER faint BFP, Wandfo BFN, ClearBlue Digital Pregnant 1-2 weeks past ovulation and lots of heartburn 10DPO- FRER DARK BFP 12DPO- FRER DARK BFP 12DPO- Blood test shows 120 hcG levels and I still haven't technically missed my period yet Today, I am 15 DPO I am beyond excited this is so unexpected. My husband was so shocked and so was my mom. I cannot wait to tell the rest of my friends and family after the first trimester. I hope this helps someone else out. I tested at 9DPO and swore it would be negative. But, the dizziness the night before is what gave it away. Don't be afraid to go buy a FRER if you are having symptoms. The Wandfos are still barely showing a line, even though my blood test is confirmed positive. Baby dust to you all...
