Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Keeping Some Faith
I am so excited to share this with ya'll, as this site was an obsession of mine the last several months. Unfortunately, I had more symptoms the prior months when I was indeed not pregnant.
The last two months I started using OPKs, and who knew, I ovulated later than the "model" cycle states. Well, that information was helpful to know, so we could BD on the correct days!
1-7DPO (as indicated by opk+, but could be within a day or two, if you're as specific as I like to be!).. creamy cm (normal), a little warm (again, could be normal), waves of nausea (but LESS than normal), not as moody as I usually am (weird, I know)
8-12DOP bbs a little fuller, expecting AF, but no cramps, tested 12dP BFN
13DPO, slight line on HPT, tested again a few hours later, definitely BFP!
The only things I did differently were 1) OPKs (this definitely helped understand my cycle), 2) stayed still after BD (thought it couldn't hurt to help the little guys swim and 3) prayed (I'm not a big prayer, but I really tried praying for strength no matter the outcome). Will continue to pray this lil bean is healthy and sticky!
