Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
REALLY REALLY LATE BFP
I promised myself I would post this time, as with my first pregnancy (2 yr old DD via c-section) I was too excited to sit down and pull my thoughts together to post :)
Me and DH are both 29, my average cycle length is 32 +/- days. The first day of my last cycle was Nov 27th and I just got a BFP today, Jan 9th. I know what you're thinking... "how the heck? that's a long time"... I know...... Praying for a healthy pregnancy! I've heard scary things about late ovulation or implantation etc.
We BD CD 9 thru CD 18 and I had predicted ovulation at CD 17 (based on timing, hadn't tried OPK's yet).
CD 21 I was surprised when I found spotting which was a bright sometimes orange looking color, VERY watery.... NOT normal for me. I was shocked and had so many thoughts, ovulation bleeding or implantation bleeding?
CD 22 Very brown and dry, then was gone.
--- I've had pressure on and off throughout, minor minor crampy.
CD 29 BFN (First Response 6 Days Early)
CD 32 BFN, sad AF is probably around the corner
CD 33 Some pinches and pulls
CD 37 BFN... but realizing late period is for certain now, called OBGYN - they pretty much said pregnancy is highly unlikely if I'm still getting negatives and that I probably am just skipping a period due to stress or diet. grrrrr
CD 40 BFN... feeling crazy, this is just not normal for me... (I had BFP with DD only a few days after ovulation)
-going into January with no BFP or AF since end of Nov!
CD 43 BFP with FMU at 6am!!!!!!!! (clear blue digital) I was speechless. It was very unexpected to be a positive so late in the game. In complete shock and slightly concerned about why it wasn't detected until so late. I'm assuming late ovulation and late implantation but what are the odds, seriously, to be at the farthest on the timeline and lowest on HCG charts to not be detected until now. Thankful I'm not crazy though and I knew my body well enough to know it wasn't normal to "skip" a period like the dr's office said it might be. I normally spot a few days before full on AF, and just didn't have any of that so I didn't know what the heck was going on.
Other things this cycle:
-Cervix was all over the board... some days was so unbelievably high (almost gone) and other days was medium to high position. It also kind of turned and was sideways. Difficult to explain but never noticed anything like it before. Noticed very tight insides.
-Also had some gum bleeding when brushing teeth, headaches on and off
-And the strangest of all.... a few days after ovulation bleeding and also recently I felt like there was a heat pad on my insides. Insides just felt HOT and FIREY, not crampy, just hot- enough to make me feel my skin to see if it was also hot on the outside.
All of these things and I still got BFN's until today - just thought I was reading too far into it all.
I don't think it's normal AT ALL to get such a late BFP. But I guess it's true to follow the, "its not over til the AF shows up" rule.
Again, prayingggggg for a healthy, viable pregnancy. Dr appt scheduled in 2 days.
