BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

I can't believe it!!!!

Like many other women on here, I promised myself that I would post my story once I got my BFP. I just can't believe that it's actually time for me to post!! My husband and I have been TTC since September 2014. I was starting to get nervous in December after 4 unsuccessful cycles. I also have endometriosis which has always worried me in regards to infertility.
Before I jump into my symptoms by DPO, let me tell you that I was always a terrible symptom spotter and always thought each cycle would end in pregnancy (high hopes!). Not until this month did I realize the difference between AF symptoms and pregnancy symptoms.. and let me tell you, it was definitely different in my case! I temped almost every single day, and had a coverline temp of 97.5. Usually after O my temps are in 97.7-97.9 range. This month they have definitely been higher!
1 dpo: 97.98 no symptoms
2 dpo: no symptoms
3 dpo: no symptoms
4 dpo: extremely achey and stuffy. Thought for sure I was getting a cold or a flu. My muscles were sore and exhausted. Sharp pain in low R side.
5dpo: 98.26 low back ache, headache
6 dpo: 97.89 sore nipple, low back ache, frequent peeing at night (like 5 times!), insomnia
7 dpo: 97.71 nausea, shooting breasts pains, stuffy, frequent peeing at night again, insomnia, dull aches in low L side.
8 dpo: 98.15 BFN abundant creamy/watery CF lots of dully aches/cramps in L&R side. Predominantly L side. Hot flashes, bloating, gassy, nauseaus, tired, frequent peeing at night again, insomnia. Let me tell you again, BLOATING, GASSY, NAUSEAUS, INSOMNIA!! I was so uncomfortable that I only got 3 hours of sleep into 9 dpo.
9 dpo: Woke up for the 2nd time at 3 AM with the urge to pee (again). Decided to POAS. Faint BFP!!!! Took another test after a 4 hour hold and got an even darker BFP! Still lots of bloating, gas, cramping and nausea. Definite heavy pressure and "stretching". Almost like someone is trying to blow a balloon up in me.

I hope this helps those of you that were a crazy symptom spotter like I was! There was definitely a difference for me!

Congrats, thanks for sharing your story

Congrats! I'm also with endometriosis with similar symptoms. I was wondering if you did further tests and if you are pregnant! Thanks!
