Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
So we had pretty much stopped trying. I was continuing to take my bbt, figured I’m almost 44, figured it would help me keep a grasp of what was going on with my body. My cycles were always 28 days like clockwork. Last July started having really goofy cycles, went to Doc, everything checked out fine. But my cycles changed to 27-31 days. I didn’t use opk’s so not exactly sure when I ovulated this month so I’m going to go by cycle day.
Normally after ovulation I have sore breast’s and that was absent this month until about cycle day 27. Around cycle day 20 I got bleeding hemorrhoids, no pain, no constipation just hemorrhoids. That got the bell ringing in my head. On cycle day 26 I had pinching on my lower left side, that moved into my back. Cycle day 27 bfn. Cycle day 28 was when period was predicted to start. My bbt was not dropping like it normally does, but was not a huge jump up. Cycle day 30 another bfn in the evening, the next morning it had changed to a positive, but couldn’t rely on that. Figured if I woke up on cycle day 32 and temp was up then I would test again. On cycle day 31 got a shooting pain down the left side of my butt while at the gym, that night I had a terrible stitch in my left side (like a runners stitch). Cycle day 32, temp still climbing. 2 bfp’s!!
Only other thing was every once awhile I would get nauseous for a minute and sleepiness would just hit out of nowhere. Also we only had sex 1 time during my fertile period, we weren’t really trying anymore, figured it wasn’t in the books with our age.
