Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

TTC 4 months with retroverted uterus

My husband and I have been trying for 4 months and finally got our BFP!! I've followed this forum from the start of our TTC journey and am happy to be able to post:) I just turned 30. I got off the pill in September right before our wedding didn't try for that month, just enjoyed each other and let the hormones from the pill wear off. Started trying the next cycle and went 3 cycles unsuccessful. I have a retroverted uterus, so I figured that could be slowing us down. So after BDing, I made sure I didn't lay down for the 20-30 minutes just on my back but also on my stomach. Also this cycle I used my finger to massage my cervix after BDing in order to get his stuff all around the opening (just a little tid bit... something worked). Now, here we are starting the year out with a new home and pregnant:) I pray this one is sticky! Good luck ladies!!

1 DPO: Nothing, felt great
2 DPO: Nothing
3 DPO: Nothing
4 DPO: Cramps
5 DPO: Backache, fatigue, school glue CM
6 DPO: Emotional and sad (typical for this time in my cycle), fatigue, heartburn, body aches (we are moving, could be that. Just bought a house!)
7 DPO: Heartburn, increased appetite, tender beasts (I normally have tender breasts at this point). Mood swings and emotional, got in a fight with hubby and screamed at him... I never do that
8 DPO: Tender breasts (normal), bbt dip (implantation?)
9 DPO: Headache, tender breasts (more than normal), increased appetite. FMU with cheapie BFN
10 DPO: Headache, more tender breast, high temp, school glue CM, peeing more at work. Took 3 internet cheapies with very very faint lines all 3 times.... ahhhhh! Snuck out to target to buy FRER regular and digital. Clear line on regular FRER and digital YES+!! BFP!!!
11 DPO: Tender breaths, stronger BFP on FRER, fatigued at work, didn't sleep well, too excited. Getting a head cold:(
12 DPO: Tender Breasts and full on head cold! Still happy as ever to finally be stage in my life:) Perfect way to start my 30: marriage, house, and pregnant... time to do some real adulting!

Note: The early result Wondfos barely picked up my pregnancy at 10 DPO, while the FRER was clear as day and digital said Yes+. Not bad for how cheap they are, but if you think you might see a very faint line on a cheapie, do yourself a favor and run out and grab a more expensive early result test:)
