BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

So incredibly grateful for my BFP!

Okay ladies,

So I have been obsessing over this site for over a year, and I promised myself that I would post my synptoms once I got my BFP because all of your stories helped me SO much throughout this process!

Little side note before we begin: I am 24, DH is 25. We have been trying since January and I got my BFP in June. Hubby and I agreed to "casually" TTC (HA!) for the first 6 months which meant I didn't chart, temp, or use OPKs so my story is a little different but I will give you all the info I can. I have a 34-35 day cycle, so I knew I ovulated later (thanks Glow and Google) but that's really all I know. We did do a couple of things different this month so here we go:
-I started taking a prenatal
-Attempted to BD every other day throughout cycle, and every day during projected fertile period
-I was seriously so RELAXED during the cycle I got my BFP. I was starting to get a little discouraged, but I promised DH that I would just chill the month it happened and...it did :)

Now for symptoms... I'm not exactly sure when I ovulated but I'm guessing somewhere around June 11-13? My period was due on June 26th, and I tested on June 29th...got an instant "pregnant 2-3" on CB digi. Surprisingly, my biggest symptom this month was lack of symptoms...y'all, I did NOT feel pregnant. Now, after the pregnancy test, I was kind of able to look back and say "Ohhh maybe THAT was why I felt this or that" so I will share those with you now, but honestly the only reason I took a test was because I was late. I didn't expect a pregnant!

- very tired (normal for me but just felt more intense than usual; like a lethargy I just could not overcome, honestly thought I was getting sick)
-breast tenderness, especially on the sides (this appeared shortly after my BFP and has intensified since; nips are also VERY sore and hqve changed shape/size/color)
-shortness of breath (looking back, this was the thing that should have made me test early! Walking from my car to the office, and I felt like I had just climbed Mt Everest, haha)
- dizzy spells (especially when hungry and if I got up too quickly)
-night nausea (WEIRD! I had this 3 nights in a row right before my BFP and kind of thought it was odd but didn't pay it too much attention)
-extreme agitation (DH and I thought we were in for a BAD AF!)
-pre-AF cramps that never progressed to full blown AF cramps (looking back, this and the shortness of breath should have given it away. These cramps (which I still have on and off at 7 weeks) were different from my AF cramps in that they were/are much lighter, a little further down, come and go, and are never "painful" like my usual AF pains)

And there you have it! Like I said, before my BFP, these "symptoms" were SO minute that I didn't even pick up on them. It wasnt until after I tested that I connected the dots. Today I am 6 weeks, 6 days and the nausea has picked up (early mornings and evenings when laying down), I have this constant gag-like pressure in the back of my throat, and I am simply exhausted...but baby is great so that is all that matters!!

I wish each and every one of you all the baby dust in the world, and am so happy to be able to share my story.

God bless!!!

One last note: NEVER give up and try to stay as relaxed as possible..things happen when you least expect them and God has His hand in it all. Easier said than done, but I just had to say it.

Baby dust, beautiful ladies!!! :)
