Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

My BFP!! Unexpected

So beyond happy to finally get to post here!! My husband and I have been TTC five months (which ended up being four cycles, three of which I was charting - I wasn't ovulating until about CD30). This month I really didn't think it would happen, but here I am. Anyway, here it goes. Day one through 5, nothing out of the ordinary (and other months I was always symptom spotting like crazy and had a million by day 3 haha). Just breast tenderness the first few days, which is always very typical post ovulation. On 6 dpo I had a little cramping which I attributed to having to go to the bathroom. My temperature was fairly slow to rise this month and then I got a huge spike at 7dpo. That temp was 0.6 higher than I've ever had during a LP. Still didn't think too much of it - I just thought I must have a good progesterone response this month. From 7 dpo to 11dpo I started noticing a few things. One, I was drinking twice the amount of water I usually do, and I already drink a ton. I was just constantly thirsty. That being said, my urine is usually completely clear but those days it wasn't, which I thought was weird with all the extra water I was drinking. Aside from the water, I also had loose stools, and I'm always constipated before AF. My breasts were also still tender at 10 dpo, which was odd because they are always tender until 6-7 days and then nothing. The morning of 10 dpo I was putting everything together and thought it was possible that I was pregnant. My LP was getting longer every month I charted after coming off BC (first month charting 7 days, then 9 days) so I wasn't even exactly sure when AF was expected. At 11 dpo my breast tenderness almost entirely subsided and I had AF like cramps on and off - I was just sure AF was coming! I bawled to my husband about how "we'd never get pregnant". I thought, once again, I invented symptoms (thirst, looser stools) that was just a coincidence which made me overly hopeful. I went to bed that night wearing a pad because I was so sure I'd wake up with AF. The next morning, I woke up with no AF. I was also surprised when my temperature was still elevated and my boobs were extremely tender again. Then I was just laying and bed and thinking some more about my odd symptoms that never happen before AF. Then I thought of something else. Every month 1-2 days before AF, I get extremely horny. Even if I'm tired, I want sex. This month, that didn't happen. With all of that, I decided to take a pregnancy test. I was trying not to be too hopeful, but sure enough, there was a (very faint) line. I was pregnant!! I ended up taking another 2 days later because I wanted to make sure it was darkening and my levels were rising. Sure enough, the line was even darker!! Good luck to everyone reading this story who is praying and hoping for that BFP!!! Baby dust :)
