Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Symptoms before BFP - I say it's possible!

I've been reading about having symptoms before implantation lately and there are a great deal of people who say it's all in the head.

I want to share my story to say it's not.

My first pregnancy happened a couple of years ago. DH and I haven't been TTC nor did we think about having a baby in general at that time. We usually used protection but there's been that one time we didn't.

I was totally oblivious to ovulation, symptoms and the possibility of getting pregnant didn't cross my mind (how are the odds with one slip?).

So we DTD and in the very early morning hours after I woke up terribly nauseated. Could've been many reasons but what struck me as odd was, that as soon as I threw up it completely vanished. I felt absolutely normal after - that never happened to me before.

The following days I felt strange (it's been 3 or 4 years so I don't recall everything that stood out to me). I googled all the stuff that felt odd to me (like suddenly getting numb fingertips) and nearly everything came up with "early pregnancy symptom".

So I bought a test, which came up negative.

Another couple of days go by and I still feel strange. The thought of being possibly pregnant despite a negative test (again, I had no clue whatsoever about implantation, test sensitivity etc etc). So I went to the ob/gyn.
Nothing despite the uterine lining thickening- just what it is supposed to do.

Another 2 or 3 days pass and against better knowledge (come on, how can you pregnant if the doc says you aren't?) with some more odd stuff happening to my body I buy another test after work.

I remember I tripped and fell what hadn't happened to me since I was a kid!

The next day the test came up positive - just very light.

I went to another ob/gyn and they wrote 4+5 (not sure about the second number, couldve been 3) on the certificate.

So this unfolded between BD and a positive test to someone who never thought about and or considered pregnancy.
To me it means you very well can know/ have symptoms before you're scientifically are supposed to be.

Unfortunately I lost this one after 9 weeks but I am proud mom to my 2yo DS.
