Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Surprise! Postpartum BFP

At only 5 months PP we were not really trying so much as vaguely assuming (silly us) that we didn't have to think much about it because my cycles had only just come back and were really long and hadn't regulated yet (it took nearly a year PP with the first to get my cycles back) and I was still breastfeeding part-time. I figured I probably wasn't even ovulating yet and wasn't worried either way.

I track my periods so I can fill in approximate dpo by that.

- 6-7 dpo my usual breakfast of two cups of coffee now soured my stomach
- 8 dpo i noticed my nipples are super sensitive when they rub the edges of my bra and even through my shirt at times. (Since I'm bfing this was a very sudden change)
- 9 dpo (only day 25 of my cycle!) I thought I'd be clever and test my symptom spotting away. Surely I am just noticing things. Nope. Definitely not. Positive within a minute on ClinicalGuard (Amazon dip strip test).
- 10-11dpo lots of bloaty gassy feeling in my lower belly
-12dpo Strong Positive on ClinicalGuard (pictured)

Must have ovulated straight out of the gate.
We weren't yet "ready" to start trying but a gift is a gift. We're over the moon.
