Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Pregnancy Symptoms Same as PMS Symptoms!

My husband and I started trying 4 months ago, but due to timing issues, we were only able to try two times...and we got pregnant on the second try!

I typically have a lot of PMS symptoms (sore boobs, cramping, nausea, sometimes night sweats) between ovulation and AF. So this month, when I had all of the same physical symptoms as previous months, I assumed I wasn't pregnant. But only difference was that the symptoms continued past the day I was supposed to get AF.

Here are my symptoms:

BD one day before and after O
O day: sharp ovulation pains
1dpo: light nausea, light cramps
2dpo: light headache, light nausea, light sore boobs, light cramps
3dpo: light nausea, light sore boobs
4dpo: light nausea, light sore boobs
5dpo: nothing really
6dpo: light headaches, light sore boobs, light cramps
7dpo: moderate headache, moderate sore boobs
8dpo: light headache, light nausea, moderate sore boobs
9dpo: light nausea, moderate sore boobs
10dpo: light headache, heavy sore boobs
11dpo: light nausea, moderate sore boobs, light cramps, light night sweats
12dpo: moderate nausea, moderate sore boobs, light night sweats, tested with EPT (25mIU) in the morning and got a faint positive
13dpo: moderate nausea, moderate sore boobs, light cramps, light bloating, light body aches, light night sweats, tested with FR Rapid Results which is a lot less sensitive (100mIU) in the evening, and got a negative
14dpo: light nausea, moderate sore boobs, light cramps, moderate bloating, moderate night sweats
15dpo: light nausea, heavy sore boobs, light headache, moderate cramps, moderate bloating, moderate night sweats, tested with FRER (25mIU) in the morning and got a faint positive
16dpo: light nausea, heavy sore boobs, moderate cramps, light backaches, light headache, moderate night sweats In addition to these symptoms, I was also fatigued, irritable, confused and forgetful (my husband said I had "mush brain"), and extremely hungry all the time. And my cramps were a combination of sharp cramps similar to ovulation cramps, as well as the achy period cramps. On 15 and 16dpo, however, the cramps were more painful...felt like really deep cramps.

The cramping and the fact that the line hasn't gotten darker concerns me a bit. I really hope I don't MC. For now, I'm gonna celebrate!
