Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
I can't believe this is happening!!
Early fall last year, me and my husband were ready to start trying for a baby. We were so excited! However I kept feeling worse and worse, so I went to my doctor who did my blood work and I found out I was hypothyroid. She let me know that due to the elevated TSH level I would have a hard time conceiving and even if I did get pregnant it would not be good for the baby. This obviously made both me and my husband sad. My doctor wanted me to come back in 8 weeks and test the TSH again. To make a long story short I found another doctor who prescribed natural desiccated thyroid and got on the medication earlier this month on the 13th of March. I also received a vitamin B12 shot. On Sunday the 15th I had ovulated. We only managed to babydance twice before my ovulation 3 days before and the day before. Fast forward to Tuesday the 24th of this month at 9 dpo I tested in the morning and got a faint positive. Praise God!! Finally! After months, and months of failed cycles, once I got on my thyroid medication it happened right away. I can't tell you how happy I'm to post here, I have been waiting for this opportunity and it's finally here. I hope my symptoms will help you out on your journey to the BFP! Cycle day 12 - Ovulation 1 DPO - Thinking I'm out this month only had a chance to baby dance twice. Feeling warm and bloated. 2 DPO - Bloated, feeling warmer. 3 DPO - Starting to notice creamy CM. This happens usually during my luteal phase, but not this MUCH! 4 DPO - Oh wow, abundant creamy CM, breasts start to get tender on the sides. 5 DPO - Creamy CM, bloated, noticed cloudy urine, tired, mildly tender breasts on the sides. 6 DPO - I couldn't stay awake! Super tired, warm, weak, still creamy CM, the odd twinge. 7 DPO - Got nauseous before breakfast, woke up very hungry, this is not typical for me. The nausea was definitely a big sign for me, I'm never nauseous. Plus gas sorry TMI, later on that night had explosive diarrhea that woke me out of sleep (another sign). 8 DPO - Nauseous again before breakfast, and now I'm really starting to wonder if this could be my month, CM turned to sticky and white + heartburn and gas in the evening. This led me to test at night 8 DPO, and of course it was NEGATIVE. After the negative test I was thinking all of these symptoms must be in my head and that I was out this month. 9 DPO - Well I woke up and instantly felt nauseous and as this is something very unusual for me I decided to test with FMU. OH WOOOOOOW!! NO WAAAAAAY!! There is a faint line on the First Response early results. + I was overjoyed, but could not believe it. 10 DPO - I tested again with FRER and the line was a little darker :). There was a little sticky CM, bloating, slightly tender breasts, periodic nausea especially when hungry. Headache and heartburn. 11 DP0 - Tested again this time with three different tests, 1 FRER, 1 ClearBlue digital, and 1 First Response digital, they all came back positive. But I loved seeing the 1-2 weeks pregnant on the ClearBlue. 12 DP0 - Today! Tested again, and lines are darker than ever, my period is due tomorrow, but my temp is nicely elevated. I definitely feel pregnant, but I'm terrified of a loss. Please God let me keep this little love baby. Stick baby, stick!! In the beginning of the next week I will go to get my BETA HCG drawn. I hope this post is helpful to you, and I hope and pray you will all be blessed with a BFP soon!
