Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
obese, bfp after 1 year ttc
i have been a silent reader for more than a year and finally i got to share my bfp story. i am 28 and dh is 27. i am obese with bmi more than 40. i was diagnosed with high bp but normal blood sugar level.
dh and i were married in november 2013 and i got pregnant right away (i was about 20kg lighter). sadly, i had a miscarriage in january 2014 and started to gain weight. i waited for about 2 months after my d&c and start ttc (charting, opk, etc) . fyi, i usually have 35 days cycle and i got my period every month. after months and months of ttc, i thought i am infertile due to my weight.
i started to take daily supplements of 3000mg of fish oil, 1 tablet of similac pramilet and black seed oil (in october 2014). and still nothing happen. the only difference was i started to get shorter days cycle around 33-34. oh and less painful menstrual cramps too. i gave up hope and we decided to stop ttc in february 2015.
i got my usual period on 20th march 2015 and 3 days later i decided to go for wet cupping (hijama) cos i heard that it gives lots of benefits to our body such as improving blood flow. but it was for the muscle pains that i suffer from. and on 5th april 2015, we bd twice and that was it. i didnt even know when did i ovulate and such.
since last weekend, i noticed that i crave for unusual things and i want it like immediately. and my husband dreamt of having a son, the first time ever, earlier this month. and my bestfriend told me last week that she had a dream about me getting pregnant. and the thing that really made me think i was pregnant is that i started to have really really sore boobs since monday (but i was still debating with my thoughts saying that its pms cos im so tired of being frustrated with lots of bfn few months back). i also noticed that i got really hard nipple over the weekend.
so, today i went to pharmacy to get a hpt and poas and immediately i saw the long awaited second line of bfp like in 2 seconds. i didnt have to squint like i used to do in past cycles. it just appear straight away!! i hope that this one sticks to full term and i dont get any complications. alhamdulillah for this miracle that i thought would never happen again. so ladies, never lose hope. when the time comes, youll get your bfp. baby dust to all.
