Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
M/C Last September... Hoping this one sticks!!
Ok, so here is a little backstory... I had paraguard placed after the birth of my second daughter in January 2012... The side effects were outrageous and I was pretty miserable, but my cycles were always the same 28 days no less no more, and I always had EWCM when ovulating. June 2016 I decided I had enough, and I've been researching and learning about Natural Family Planning, and talked to my SO and told him I'm confident that this will be perfect for us. Well... after the removal of IUD, my cycle started being weird and doing things out of the norm for me. My cycles would be 29 days to 35 days long.. Well... that's not as easy to track as my consistent 28 days. Plus I wasn't creating much if any visible EWCM and that is what I relied on plus how I felt to confirm I was in my fertile window. Anyways moving on, we ended up getting pregnant in September, I was excited, but scared because I didn't know if I wanted a 3rd child but we'll take it. I ended up losing it that same weekend we found out, if I didn't test I probably would have just thought it was my period. After that I knew I wanted a baby, but I thought something was wrong w/ me to cause the m/c so we just went with the notion, of not really trying to have a baby, but not really trying to not have a baby. Now here I am 7 months later, pregnant again, and this one feels more real than the last one, and I just knew I was pregnant after I ovulated.
O - I'm sure it was April 18th. We had sex on the 16th and 17th
1dpo-4dpo Still very crampy from O boobs also pretty sore
5dpo-6dpo - crampy also producing so much saliva and getting slightly nauseous after eating. boobs aren't very sore.
7dpo-8dpo - crampy still producing excess saliva - heavy feeling in uterus not really cramping... boobs really sore especially on sides. headache off and on both days.
8dpo - I ordered a box of First Response Tests through Prime Monday, so I figured I'd wait until Thursday (9dpo to test) But when I got it on Wednesday about 1 pm... I couldn't wait even though I should have.... I took one and wow it was positive, and that line was so dark and it appeared so quick. SO got home about 2 and he wanted me to test again before he believed it. Tested later that evening ... another BFP. He still wasn't convinced ((LOL)) So I tested Thursday morning... also another BFP.
Have to wait until the end of May to see my Dr. but I have a good feeling that this will be my Rainbow Baby! Sorry if this is too long! Sending good thoughts to all of you!!
