Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Never thought this would EVER happen

My husband and I started trying in Feb 2012 and I got pregnant six months later. I was sick non stop for the next 8 weeks but then at my 12 week scan I was told there was no heartbeat which we were absolutely heartbroken about. After my ERPC we started trying again in Nov 2012 and after six months went to get checked out. The docs told me I was completely clear, there was nothing wrong with me and to 'relax' (yeah right). I tried everything - acupuncture, reading books, going on holiday, counselling - everything. I was getting irregular bleeding but again the docs told me it was just 'hormonal'. Then in January this year I went for a second opinion and this doctor said immediately that I had polycystic ovaries and possible endometriosis which I was shocked about. No wonder I wasn't getting pregnant! I had a laporoscopy and hysteroscopy in Feb this year and three months later, here I am with my BFP. What's important to note is that I had all the usual period symptoms - sore boobs, brown spotting and mood swings - so even if you think you are out this month, you may not be! It's not over until you see red - that's what I always say! but here are a few things I noticed that I don't normally get around my period. These all started the day I was due (CD27):

Dry mouth/dry throat
General 'hungover' feeling
Extreme tiredness
Light headedness
Period-like cramps

I am so pleased that we have finally got a positive result but am still being cautious. Anything could happen I know, but there's always that thought in the back of my head that this one might be 'the one'. We will see. Keeping everything crossed for all of you out there - I've been following this website for a few years now and can't believe that I finally get to share my BFP story. Even if it gives hope to just one person then I'm happy I could help. Good luck everyone! it's the hardest thing you will go through but it WILL happen in the end. I never thought it would for me and yet here I am feeling super tired but super happy xx
