Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Naturally after 10 months of ttc at 41 years old.
We've been ttc for 10 months. Finally on the 10th month I was about to give up because he is 41 and I am 40 but it was our month! I started taking prenatal vitamins 6 months ago and 50mg of B6 3 months ago. We also ordered the proven OPK strips 3 months ago. We were doing the deed every day and this month we did every other day at night so I could go to sleep and not get up to pee. I feel this was the trick! I also lowered carbs and lost 7lbs. 1-4 DPO Nothing! 5 DPO nipples tingle (normal). Huge glob of creamy white discharge. I am usually dry. 6 DPO had a dizzy spell in the evening before bed. I almost fell over and even grabbed onto the wall. 7 DPO flutters in stomach, like butterflies when you feel excited. 8 DPO cramps like AF is coming. Even felt wet and checked. Nothing. Took test and negative but I thought I seen a line. No one else could see it. Had a meltdown first thing in the morning. Felt moody and cried a lot. Went for walk and felt heaviness in lower pelvic. 9 DPO woke and had breast pain on the sides and major nipple tingling. At this point in cycle I never have the tingles. I always spot on this day too and NO spotting. Took test because I just felt pregnant and had a faint positive! Will check again in morning. Lots of bloating and gas. Sharp pains on right side. 10 DPO BFP! Woke with nipples tingling, heavy boobs, and morning sickness! I never have morning sickness this early in the game. Lots of gas. 11 DPO morning sickness again. Heaviness in lower pelvic and low back pain. Some acne. OCD I think I'm already nesting. Mood swings and crying easy. Feel like AF is going to start but we know I'm pregnant. Just shows how much it resembles PMS!!!! Mild indigestion. Bloated and gas. 12 DPO bloated and gas! Irritable and weepy. Pelvic feels flexed. Fatigue! Mild indigestion. Breasts feel heavy and big. Took another test just to be sure....BFP. First appointment tomorrow. 13 DPO Insomnia last night. Headache, light headed, and gas! Went to doctor and said uterus is enlarged. Maybe this is part of the bloating. Feeling less sick today. 14 DPO Fatigue! Still bloated. Heaviness down low. Lots of lower backache and twinges. Hungry! I can smell everything! I usually spot and I had no spotting this month at all!
