Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
God's Promise, My Rainbow
I am so excited to be able to finally post my BFP story! This is my first time posting but I had a natural miscarriage at 10 weeks in August of last year, followed by chemical pregnancies in December and January. We are very hopeful about this one and pray this will be a happy & healthy 9 months!
I actually didn't have any symptoms with my first pregnancy/miscarriage except for sore breasts. This time, I had just about all the early symptoms and am embracing them all.
Day 11: Ovulated very early due to delayed AF from chemical pregnancy, dream I was holding a giant, beautiful fish
1-3dpo: Light cramping
4-5dpo: Light cramping, milky discharge
6-8dpo: Light cramping, discharge, back pain
9-10dpo: Light cramping, back pain, major acne (the only time I get pimples is when I am on my period, and I usually only get one), light fever (people kept telling me my face was red), major headache, BFN both days
11dpo: Light cramping, back pain, headache, fever, more acne (on my chin, under my nose, side of forehead), BFP!!! Tired all day
13dpo: Today- feeling nauseous
Things I did to help:
- Ate pineapple core after ovulation
- Took vitamin b6 everyday with my prenatal vitamins (Whole Food brand, 50mg) I called my doctor's office when I had my chemical pregnancy in January because I had so much pain. They told me I was probably getting pregnant too late in my cycle and since I have a short luteal phase (12 days), I kept having chemical pregnancies. I looked up short luteal phases online and read that b6 would help. I am going to keep taking it since I heard stopping can cause spotting and I heard it also helps with morning sickness.
Thanks to God! Wishing you all healthy & happy pregnancies!
