BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Second baby bfp - 9 months trying!

So, after looking at every single one of these stories over the last few months -I’m not exaggerating - I literally just got my bfp tonight. Obviously it’s still very early days but I feel I owe it to all the other obsessive mothers to be to write how I felt the last few weeks. Firstly I just want to say I just got back from a 10 holiday with my husband and little girl who’s 2.5 years and it’s the first time I have felt relaxed in months. I am sure this had something to do with it. So book a holiday like tomorrow (a great excuse if ever I heard one). I wasn’t as symptom spotty this month (as we were holidaying) but I noticed a few obvious things over the last week in particular. [1-7 dpo] my boobs hurt, this is very unusual for me as they only usually get sore about 8-9dpo lasting until my period. But this was the only symptom I had during this time. [8-10dpo] I had bouts of intense painful cramps, like worse than any period cramps I have ever had. They kept me awake when they came at night but weren’t consistent all the time as period ones usually are. I also began to sleep really badly in general. I’d fall asleep quick and wake up for hours on end in the middle of the night. [11dpo] the cramps died down to my usual pre af type ones and became really bloated and a bit nauseous here and there. I also had lower back ache (I still have that now). [12dpo] I just felt out of sorts, I’m usually really up for going in cold sea/swimming pools slides etc but I wouldn’t go down and my partner asked what was up. I had no answer I just didn’t feel like myself. [13dpo] (today) I had nausea when I woke up and on the flight back home I had a pretty severe bout of dizziness as we took off. I’m also mega thirsty and definitely peeing a bit more (but that could be to pee on sticks). Tonight’s is the first test I have taken and it’s clear as day but I know a lot can happen. I’m just so grateful and so happy. I told my husband our lives are about to become a lot more stressful. Massive good luck to all of you still trying or in the hell of the tww. I’ve almost gone mad the past 9 months and I already have a gorgeous little girl so I know I’m super lucky already.
