Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Pregnancy after Stillbirth at 24 Weeks
My husband and I had a stillborn baby girl at 24 weeks. For the first time I was actively trying not to get pregnant. But God's timing is perfect. I consider this baby to be hand-picked in heaven by my baby girl and sent down to me.
Since I was taking birth control pills, I wasn't tracking ovulation, but I think I ovulated around CD 5-9. I have a long luteal phase anyway but it might have been messed up because I gave birth a month before.
CD 1-4: Normal period. Started BC
CD 9: Red spotting
CD 13: Bad diarrhea. The last time I was pregnant, I got the same symptom a week before my period was due and a + three days later.
CD 16: Insomnia. I could not fall asleep all night. I also had a "feeling" I was pregnant which I dismissed.
CD 18: More insomnia. Laid awake all night again. Sore breasts began...in my opinion, the number one tell-tale sign of pregnancy!
CD 21-23: Brown spotting for three days, not enough to use a pad.
CD 24: Took a pregnancy test because there was no sign of AF coming (bad cramps, spotting, wanting to kill my husband). Positive!
CD 28: 28 days is my longest cycle length and still no period. 2nd tell-tale sign of pregnancy for those women with enough patience to wait that long (not me.) Good luck, ladies!
