Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Surprise BFP after certain AF would arrive
WOW. I cannot believe I am posting my own BFP story. It doesn't seem real, I am full of emotions. I promised myself I would share my dpo story for everyone, as everyone's stories really helped me get through the hard days! A little back story. My DH and I have been TTC since April 2015. We never had many opportunities to "try" as my cycles are VERY long and irregular. Once going 85+ days! I really, really felt a deep pit in my stomach that I would never see a BFP. Although very early I am thankful for this BFP-one my heart has been desiring for so long! OV-CD 37! Confirmed with + OPK and pinching pains in ovaries, following rise in BBT. 3-4dpo - Totally exhausted! Also noticing breast tenderness. Easily could be from ovulation, but have never had tenderness directly after ovulation before. Creamy CM. 5dpo- Pressure in abdomen (felt like a big gas bubble!) also onset of cold symptoms (sore throat, stuffy nose) attributed to the sudden cold front that came through that weekend. Creamy CM. 6dpo- Light cramps and bloat. Had sharp pain in lower abdomen that went away after a minute. Remember having hot flashes in the bookstore. Breast still tender, gassy, tired, moody!! Creamy CM. 8dpo-Buzzy feeling in head while at work, restless sleep all night! Stuffy nose still dragging on, sore throat gone. Irritableness and fatigue continues. Breast are still tender since 3 dpo, hmm this is strange. Creamy CM. Vivid Dreams. 9dpo- Slight nausea in the morning hour. I felt like I had a heightened sense of smell! My car air freshener was bothering me! Slight pinchy feeling. (Early HPT cheapie, negative....pulled out of the trashcan a little later...is that a line or evap line?) Vivid Dreams. 10dpo- Creamy CM is mostly gone! Skin is starting to break out...just like it does before AF...negative HPT...another vivid dream. 11dpo-Woke up a little achy. TENDER breast! Seemed to be more tender than ever before! Assumed it was AF as I started getting light cramps later evening. 12dpo-More AF like cramps and tender breast, convinced AF should be here any day. Wet feeling in underwear, checking every few minutes for flow! I literally had an emotional breakdown thinking we missed this cycle. I cried for about 2 hours. Husband even makes an appointment to get his sperm tested! 13dpo- *No sign of AF* Creamy CM in the AM..hm that's strange. Painful AF like cramps continue. Decide if I don't start AF by lunch I would test, certain of a BFN...to my biggest surprise BFP!! I'm still in shock and cannot believe it!! Main things this cycle was using OPKs and temping! Had we not we would of certainly missed our window! Praying for all your beautiful ladies out there. Never give up hope. We prayed hard and heavily for this day to come, I cannot praise Him enough.
