Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Thought I Was Out This Month For Sure...

Last month leading up to my period I was so certain that I was going to get a positive. I was feeling nauseated, tired, headaches, backaches, sensitive smells... the whole 9 years. I even went late and so I felt pretty confident. Then, nothing. Never got even a hint of a positive even though my cycle went 10 days longer than it ever had.

This month I felt so good that I thought there was no way we had gotten lucky. I felt none of the expected symptoms except for some nipple tenderness. Around 7/8 DPO I suddenly developed some really annoying vaginal irritation, like my outer lady bits had been scratched up. It was definitely not a yeast infection or BV so I felt completely mystified. I was googling possible reasons for it and one thing that kept popping up was hormonal changes like menstruation or pregnancy. That was my one and only clue. (I bought some vagisil wash for balancing pH and it cleared right up)

So, to sum up:
1-8 DPO - sensitive nipples
9-12 DPO - vaginal irritation due to pH imbalance
13-14 DPO - some nausea
14 DPO- BFP!!! the line popped up on the FRER right away and was just as dark at the test line. I was completely shocked. Where were all the symptoms? :)

I still feel really shocked and like it's not real. I can't wait to call the doctor and hear someone else say the words, "you're pregnant."

Things we did this month- SMEP! I think this really worked for us. I used a combo of Wondfo and Clearblue digital OPKs. I used the wondfo to test 2x/day (SMU and in the evening) and the digital to confirm a positive since it can be confusing with the lines.
I drank green tea, but that's pretty normal for me, and took my pre-natal vitamins faithfully. This month I tried really hard not to stress or worry and refused to let myself test until 14 DPO (16 DP positive OPK).

So thankful for our miracle and hope and pray for all the best for all of you ladies! Thanks for sharing your stories on here, I've loved reading them.
