Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Pregnant with our RAINBOW!
I have three healthy children. I miscarried my fourth baby April 2016 at around 5 weeks. I had spotting of light brown a few days before the actual miscarriage. I knew something was wrong from the beginning of finding out we were pregnant - I felt off and different and I am very intuitive with my body. I had a vivid dream that night I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in a water birth and she had the name we picked out for her so I knew then that we will have our baby girl soon. I also dreamt my boys were all boys as well. I waited till I had my first period post miscarriage which was May 7th for us to try to conceive again.
I continued to take my prenatal vitamins and started taking baby aspirin as well on calendar day 8 of the new cycle. I started using the Clearblue Ovulation tests on Sunday, May 15th. May 16th and May 17th I had a TON of watery discharge but tested negative that morning. I knew ovulation was approaching. Around 5:40 PM on May 17th I decided to take another ovulation test because of being achy all of a sudden on the left side near ovary when I walked and what do you know - BIG SMILEY FACE. We had sex the 15th and 16th already so we had sex the night of the 17th as well and called it good. I had a good feeling this was it. The evening on the 18th around 6 PM I felt the big pinch on left side of the egg being released so I ovulated that day. Ovulation test was negative (blank circle) at 8 PM that night. Here are my symptoms:
May 19th - 1 DPO - Diarrhea when I got to work and bad stomach cramps out of no where. Felt ill the entire day. Didn't even eat breakfast so I know it wasn't something I ate.
May 20th - 2 DPO - Gas and heartburn after eating BBQ ribs for dinner. That never happens. My left breast was tender under armpit like I did a ton of heavy lifting when I didn't. We were on family vacation. Left nipple also started getting a bit sore.
May 21st - 3 DPO - Nothing. Just a little sleepy from our vacation activities.
May 22nd - 4 DPO - light headache, stomach feels off and upset, little moodiness
May 23rd - 5 DPO - Lower back pain in the morning and cramps that lasted half the day. Felt like my period was coming but WAY too early so I was but was pretty sure it was IMPLANTATION!!!
May 24th - 6 DPO - little runny nose in the morning, little breast pain before bed and light cramping. My partner told me that he dreamt of a baby girl learning how to walk and how beautiful and happy she was playing in our living room.
May 25th - 7 DPO- Creamy mucus, tender breasts a little bit but not much and FAINT line on the WONFO Pregnancy test in the evening!!!! SHOCKED!! Took two and both had faint lines!
May 26th - 8 DPO - Light headache, creamy mucus
May 27th - 9 DPO - Tired and HOT! Another positive on Dollar Tree test, First Response, and Wondfo!!!
