Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

It always happens when you least expect it! Trusting God's timing

I always told myself that once I got my positive I would post it on here with all my symptoms for all the mommys out there trying like I was. Although I wasn't technically trying anymore i'm very in tune with my body so I started jotting down symptoms pretty much right away. A little history of mine, I was trying really hard for a baby from about mid 2013 till mid 2015 with no luck and a breakup I decided to give it a rest and just focus on being a mommy to my 9 year old and focus on work. I recently started seeing my ex again and we hooked up a few times this past month and BAM i'm pregnant. Talk about crazy timing huh? December was a really rough month for me because I was getting really depressed about being so underweight. I'm very petite only about 5'1 and my healthy weight is usually about 105. Well these last months I went down to 90lbs and had no appetite so I decided to start taking vitamins and drinking ensure drinks to gain some weight. I had also recently read into low progesterone and kinda self diagnosed myself into thinking my hormones were off (another reason why I started on vitamins) for the last two years I've had spotting right after ovulation and before my period plus in the last 3 months my spotting got worse and I started spotting from about 5-7dpo all the way up to my period. So I started taking a multivitamin and drinking my shakes right around the time I conceived a few weeks ago. I have no idea if they helped in conception for me but it's pretty crazy that I got pregnant so soon. Sorry for babbling here's my symptoms everyone :)

LMP: Dec 14th
Ovulation date: Dec 28th (uterus achy in am, back pain, boobs heavy, sleepy, lightly positive ovulation test, started vitamins)
BD: Dec 26th, 27th
1DPO: very light ovary aches in am, headache, sleepy early, nausea at night, low back achy in bed
2DPO: am headache, very hungry, right ovary pinch, napped before bedtime, very tiny pink spotting (normal ovulation spotting) constipated, low pelvic achy at night
3DPO: emo in am, lightly sore uterus in am and when cough/sneeze, headache at night, zero cm, gassy

5DPO: woke up with dry mouth, red old blood spotting, napped in am, minor crampy/ache, sinuses still bothering me, cravings, very hungry, very little dark brown spot at night, achy right side ovary when laying on side, craving ice
6DPO: brown spotting, achy lower tummy, sinuses bothering me and sore throat earache started at night, brown spotting minimal at night, ate wings on the bone for the first time ever (I hate anything on bone this was very weird)
7DPO: woke up at 530 to pee, woke up with the worst cold ever even stood home from work which I never do, headache, flegm, congested, low back pain when sitting or laying in bed, sex dream that woke me up out of my sleep, gassy, random period like deep aches/cramps across lower belly midday, weird hot flashes, achy across lower abdomen, pink spotting almost nothing (thinking this was implantation)
8DPO: spotting gone, heavy head" feeling headache, thirsty and dry mouth, hot flashes, dry feeling down there, craving ice, slightly bloated driving home, achy right side ovary at night
9DPO: headache in am, achy low back, nose feels kinda like when water goes up your nose-sinus pressure, boobs feel like they're filling up (I felt this with my oldest son) sinus pressure worsens in afternoon very irritating, super bloated at night with bubbly tummy, pushed up against kitchen counter and felt odd, sensitive to light
10DPO: woke up at 545 to pee, constipated in am, right ovary ache, back pain that's more right sided, sense of smell increases, boobs feel heavy but not bigger, light pink/brown spot when wiped, shoulders achy, tuna sandwich for lunch tasted very bland, bloated at night, headache, right ovary pain worse at night once in bed
11DPO: woke up before alarm to pee, dry mouth in am, scalp feels dry?, breathing more heavily, out of breath, hot flashes, lunch tasted bland again, low back pain, spotting gone today, gassy at night, lightly achy uterus
12DPO: woke up to lightning crotch pain and a lot of pressure in low belly that might have been gas, goes away after bowel movement, very mild cramping in evening
13DPO: BD in am tmi felt very swollen/tight inside (very odd) right side ovary twinges, very sharp shooting pain on left side when I got up too quickly, boobs feel more round/full but don't hurt, painful pimple on cheek (opposite side I usually break out on)
14DPO: yawny in am, ovary twinges on right side, very light af type cramps in am that settled after midday, constipated, low back pain around tailbone, thirsty all day drank 3 water bottles, I can smell everything!
15DPO: very hungry in am, headache midday, burpy, bloated after eating, body feels hot to touch at bedtime
16DPO: bloated in am, headache, thirsty, starving, painful tiny pimple right on my forehead/hairline, lips feel very pouty and are very dry, boobs look perkier like I got a nice little boob job only sore on sides, finally had time to pick up a test after work BFP right away, literally turned positive 2 seconds later.

I think this months biggest giveaway for me was the ovary twinges lasting so long and the constant headache that never went away. Besides recently feeling much more pregnant those were the 2WW giveaways for me. Good luck to all you ladies!
