Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Natural BFP at 41
Of course, I've been a lurker for months but since I know how much I looked for "over 40" stuff, I wanted to post
Me 41 DH 41 DD 2
what I did this month: Evening Primrose cd1-O Wild yam extact o-present Pre-seed (1st month!) softcups, prenatals, B-6. extra folic, baby aspirin (my other usual stuff: Vit D, cal/mag/zinc) Started committed exercising!
1-3dpo noticed a change in my usual post-o cp. CP usually comes way down really quickly after o, this time it only came half way down 7 went back up for several days. CM dried up & was fairly scant until the BFP
4 & 5 dpo just some weird dreams
6dpo More weird dreams (all of these dreams were AF, baby, maternal type dreams) woke up w/ a stabbing pain in left pelvic area (2am) stayed up for about 2 hours better after a snack but the stabbing continued mildly throughout the day.
8 dpo constipation..& tmi, I had bean for both lunch & dinner, no dice. Some cramping, thought it was AF cause my cycle has been fluctuating a bit. tested $ store: BFN
9 dpo more constipation, dried nose bleed???? curious!! tested $ store: BFN
10 dpo constipation in the am then (tmi, sorry) everything broke free!! 4 trips to the border!! Weird backache, but I have been working out. Very slightly tender underarms. Caved by 8:30pm Faint BFP w/ a FRER
11 dpo (today) Absolutely NO sleep, DD up at 5:30a Waited until I was absolutely busting to test w/ my 1 Digi so it wouldn't shut off before DH wakes up. POSITIVE!!! Oh heck, I'm waking him up!!!!! Good luck ladies, it does happen!!
