Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
I can’t believe it! TTC 11 cycles for number #2
Hi everyone I just wanted to say I stalked this site since last year. I really helped me to keep my sanity and I promised I would come and share my story. So I am nearly 40 so as my DH with one child. It was so quick to get pregnant with her so I never ever thought it would take this long to conceive again. Believe it or not I gave up of trying the day before my BFP. I told my mum that’s it my period is coming and I am not going to try anymore and than the next day I got my positive. Seriously!!! It’s the craziest thing ever. I have mild endo which was removed last year.
My pre BFP Symptoms were exactly same as pre af with only little difference. I think what helped us was conceive plus this month. I used clearblue fertility monitor for the last 5 cycles and I always get highs and peaks. So from monitoring my body I found out that I ovulate very quickly after the first peak. So it was really hard to know when will be the last high before peak. This month I started to pay more attention to my cm. we had sex when I had the most cm which ended up being the night before peak so I think that’s when I got pregnant.
Here goes my symptoms and diary
Ovulation day: this is strange as I always have ovulation pain on left this time on right. I noted this on my diary but didn’t think anything of it
1dpo: crazy I know but nauseous and threw up my dinner. I never throw up but again too early for anything.
2dpo: period pain same as every month. Strange metallic taste in mouth I thought that was strange. I cried cried for not being pregnant and moody
3dpo: my cm felt so wet at one point. My cm always dry this time but again dried up
4dpo: again metallic taste weird! Same af and endo pains so again not pregnant I thought. Soooo moody
5dpo: crazy hungry today and lots of af pains
6dpo: soooo sleepy today but I am sometimes really tired and sooooo hungry
Tested and bfn of course
7dpo: af pains same as every month
8dpo: af pains and moody
9dpo: soooo moody and bfn again. But today I am like an energised bunny even though I didn’t sleep the night before. It’s like I took an energy pill. Sooo productive at work. I am normally tired and slow lol
10dpo: Sharp boob pains. Bfn and lots of af pains. This is the day I said that’s it I am not pregnant and I give up
11dpo: Bad bad pains bloated but sooo much more pain like deep crazy. And nothing taste good to eat. I was talking to my mum and said that’s no more trying I give up. Because I gave up and I had this pregnancy test to get rid of I thought I am a pee addict so I just get rid of it. OMG there is a line!!!! I had noooo clue nothing whatsoever. Digital confirmed also.
I have been cramping since and nauseous. Cramps are so much worse than my previous pregnancy.
When I think about it the the different symptoms were strange taste, moodiness to a point where I hate everyone and want to scream inside soooo angry. Also some cm at different point but I am not completely dry no extra cm so far.
