Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Suspicions were correct
I've been trawling this website for the last 2 weeks. Convinced I had conceived on our 2nd cycle post Mirena coil removal but worried after seeing how long it took some following removal of this coil.
Mirena removal 19th Feb. Had one period on 9th March for 3 days and fairly light. No Mirena crash as expected after reading the horror stories.
We decided to download Ovia immediately and entered my last 3 periods (had the coil 5 years and the last 6 months my periods had restarted). My tracking showed 26 to 28 day cycles and average 25.
My story is:
Cd1 to 3 light bleeding
Cd8 and 9 spotting. Possibly ovulation bleed but was far too early according to the app as these were the first two fertile days according to charts.
Ovia suggested I was due to ovulate on cd13 so I didn't track until then.
DPO1 constipation fatigue cramps insomnia and v CRANKY
DPO2 99.86 temp nausea hot flushes increased appetite diarrhea increased sex drive headache neck ache backache (major back ache which has been a constant to today) right pelvic pain and fullness fatigue bloating gas cramps dizzy spells frequent urination insomnia. Thick creamy cervical fluid. Very wet feeling down there all day. Frustrated impatient and angry
3DPO 98.6 temp. Cold flu symptoms and stuffy nose mainly. All as DPO2 but really cranky and angry then suddenly happy and confident before being cranky and angry again. Constipated
4DPO 98.78 temp. All above but also tender BBs and diarrhea. Felt stressed cranky angry then confident focused and motivated. And back to bad moods.
5DPO 98.06 temp. School glue fluid started. No change to other symptoms. Still insomnia back ache daily and pelvic pain.
6DPO brown spotting on tissue paper. 3 tiny drops and nothing since. Assumed this was implantation bleeding. Felt like someone shoved a sharp pencil into my lower back and made me wince a little. 98.96 temp. Itchy down stairs. Indigestion -which I never get! Backache so bad I made hubby rub my tailbone area for over an hour with no relief.
7DPO neg test. Of course! Was far too early but was convinced. Temp 99.14. Nausea headache (still) bloating gassy indigestion cravings +sex drive +appetite backache (like murder) moody and angry. Poor hubby got an earful for no reason. Just v short tempered. Discharge stopped so assumed I wasn't pregnant as I'm normally dry at this stage.
8DPO neg test again. Temp 98.78. School glue is back. Same symptoms as day before.
9DPO neg test again. Naturally! Still too early. School glue and temp 98.96. Return of hot flushes and dizzy spells. No other changes to daily symptoms.
10 DPO another negative test. Starting to think it's in my head now. Temp 98.6. All same symptoms but then added to them with v serious cramping like AF was going to come early and was going to be the nastiest bitch ever this month. Convinced myself was coming on early and felt wet. Kept going to check in case I came on. No bleeding though. Plenty of school glue today.
Took kids to cinema and cried at the happy ending. Not normal for me at all....
11DPO. Was due smear test at 10.30 am so thought I'd do another test to be on the safe side. Digi one that says can confirm up to 4 days early. I'm 3 days off AF yet but thought what the hell. This test wasn't with FMU however so expected another negative. Digi response said not pregnant but when I ejected strip I could see a second line. Ran out and bought 2 more tests. One Digi from clear blue and one with the lines so I could see lines instead. Both BFP. With 3rd wee of the day. And it was a forced wee too. Digi clear blue says 1 to 2 weeks which was spot on as I'm effectively 3 weeks and 2 days from first day of LMP.
This was totally different for me. Last 2 kids I didn't get a result (but knew for ages) until I was 6 weeks gone as my HCG is apparently low rising. Also I didn't have my usual tell tale signs of really sore (unbareably) breasts. I also never get backache which I've had daily this time. So my symptoms are totally different to my last 2 children and finding out early is new for me. Just praying it's not twins now.
Your posts on this site have kept me reading for hours so I wanted to share my symptoms here for others to read too.
Good luck to all trying x
