Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Positive Test - Dr Confirmed!
Hello! I am thrilled to add my tww symptoms! Here's my story last two months:
Been TTC two months. Last month – I had weird cramps, lots of random breast pain, and felt exhausted for no reason at all! Even though I didn't think we'd timed it right, I thought I must be pregnant since the "symptoms" were so strong. Absolutely no lines. I POAS about 10 times (I couldn't help it!) and absolutely nothing, no lines at all, not even a shadow of a line. Here are my "symptoms" for my BFP now:
4 Days Prior to Ovulation – BD
3 Days Prior to Ovulation – BD
Ovulation day – felt O pain, had EWCM for about an hour at work, (10am) then it went away. I felt so horrible all day because I thought we wouldn't have a chance now since we wouldn't be able to BD till next day (DH was working nights that week).
1 DPO – BD early in day – and later in day
2 DPO – BD
3 DPO – BD
1 DPO through 8 DPO – Nothing weird at all, no cramps, no extra discharge (CM was same as last month, not a lot, but creamy, like lotion, I only check externally). I didn't feel any different, so I assumed I wasn't pregnant, felt bad because we'd have to wait another month.
9 DPO – Had major bout of intestinal cramping, like stomach flu – NOT like AF cramping. Lasted about 5 hours, coming in waves.
10 DPO – took Pregnancy test out of curiosity, wondering about stomach flu, wondering if it was safe to have a drink that night. It was 10pm, I'd held pee for a while, but I saw the faintest of faint marks. It was a blue dye test, and It was more like a shadow than a line, but I could see it without squinting. I dismissed it as negative after reading about how the blue dye tests are notorious for readings like that, even though I'd never seen any line like it before.
11 DPO – nothing
12 DPO – took another test, curiosity, at 10am at work – very faint line, but definitely there! I went straight to store at lunchtime, bought a three pack digital tests, and tried again an hour later, Pregnant!
13 DPO – another test, just to be sure. Called DR. Managed to get an appointment for next day
14 DPO – saw Dr., line barely registered on their test (looked cheap, weird looking, they only put a couple of drops of pee on it) the line was just enough that the nurse told me she could see it. I think she passed it around to the other nurses outside the door while I was waiting for the Dr., to see if they saw it too. My Dr. told me she could see the line, and believed I was pregnant, but she had a blood test drawn to make sure. They called me at 5:15 tonight to tell me I am indeed pregnant! I did ask my Dr. about the intestinal cramping and stuff, she told me not to worry about it, probably gastroenteritis (or something like that, I don't remember exactly what she said!) I saw light brown spotting with a small brown clump about two hours later, felt very scared at first, but I know that spotting is normal, I'm guessing implantation bleed, late since it's brown, I'm a little nervous, but praying everything is OK! Hang in there ladies, I know the wait is hard.
