Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Gave up hope, planned trip, bought puppy then... BFP!
To all those who have lost hope, I've had three laporoscopies for Endo with the last (one year ago) finding multiple cysts on my ovaries.
We have been carefree for four years and actively trying for two and a half and were on the public wait list for IVF after giving up any chance of falling naturally.
In hindsight I guess there were a few symptoms early on. I had one day where I was EXTREMELY gassy - like to the point that I no longer wanted to be around myself! Luckily I was working alone!
Then I had what I now know to be implantation bleeding which at the time looked more like pre-menstrual spotting, like a light brown discharge, only it didn't continue past that day. I was and have been since about 4 weeks feeling dizzy every time I stand up and need to pee ALL the time. With that I'm mega thirsty all the time too which is new for me.
People commented that I was moodier than usual at 4 weeks and I had a day of teenage-like acne.
I didn't find out till 5 weeks though. I only tested to confirm my period was on it's way as my pre-menstrual breast cyst had flared up and I had a pregnancy test leftover from my ttc days.
Such a shock! Now 5w 4d. No symptoms other than slightly PMS feeling boobs now and then, frequent peeing and dizziness. Not a hint of nausea though but it's early days.
Anyway - good luck ladies - we are just in disbelief after all the pain of trying. Our first BFP after all these years!
