Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
TTC For a Whole Year, No Known Fertility Issues, Clomid (First Try) BAM! BFP!
The DH and I having been trying for a year with a 6 year old, and 3 year old boys. We we're pushing for that 3 year difference between our babes, and were getting desperate after it didn't come as easily with our first two. We decided to try Clomid, and took it on CD 3-7. A lot of my symptoms we're definitely from the Clomid, but i'll list everything I noticed! Good luck, sticky beans, and baby dust!
CD3-7 (Clomid cycle) - Hot flashes, Dizziness, Bloating.
CD8 - Neg.OPK (Of course, just checking!) Dry CM (Heard that happens on Clomid). Had a bad bad cold, which I figured would help moisten things up!
CD9 - A huge sense of calmness? Nausea, nipples were sore feeling, dizziness, cold/fluish junk, tired.
CD10 - Nothing other then my calm feeling, and my cold.
CD11 - Strange fluttering cramps on left side, cold/flu stuffiness.
CD12 - Bad bloating, like I'm 4 months preggo. Tired, and a HUGE appetite. Hubbs and I BDD.
CD13 - Terrible cramps! All over! Had to sit down, because it radiated down my legs. Pretty sure I ovulated today! Still a huge sense of calmness.
DPO1 - CD14 - Little nausea, calm feeling. Hubbs and I BDD.
DPO2 - CD15 - Calm, left sided stabbing cramps, nausea, bloating still, and a huge sex drive, haha.. BDD of course. :)
DPO3 - CD16 - Calm, nausea, nip soreness, dizziness, fatigue, and a huge sex drive still! BDD again.
DPO4 - CD17 - CM creamy and wet all of a sudden? Calm, nausea, tender BB's very swollen in fact! DH is happy happy, lol. Can't find anything to eat that sounds good, very unsatisfied. And pretty gassy..
DPO5 - CD18 - Still calm, very gassy, no appetite, bad bloating, backaches, and fatigue.
DPO6 - CD19 - Lots of eggwhite CM, pretty unusual. BB are still swollen, insomnia, nausea.
DPO7 - CD20 - More gas, constipation, backaches, I'm tired but I can't sleep? Still calm though! Took a HPT, BFN. Too early, I know!!
DPO8 - CD21 - Gas, gas, gas. BB's are hugemongeous. Bloated, and tired.
DPO9 - CD22 - Gas, BB's swollen/hurt. Nausea, but super hungry. Crampy. Hubbs and I BDD.
DPO10 - CD23 - Still have creamy eggwhite CM. Gas, BB's hurt, nips are sore, more bloat, and insomnia. BFN.
DPO11 - CD24 - Creamy CM, fatigue, gas, BB's still hurt, nausea, my neck and back were killing me! Tossing and turning all night. BFN.
DPO12 - CD25 - Headache, BB's sore, gas, slept almost the entire day, small period like cramps. BDD again. Pee'd on a store bought cheapie, and it had the faintest positive! Even DH saw it, but we didn't get our hopes up.
DPO13 - CD26 - AF is due! Nauseous bad! Lots of cramping. Very tired even though I slept all day yesterday. I work in a lab at a health clinic, so I called my doc and had her put the urine work in. All came back BFP!! I have a follow up appointment tomorrow at 9am!
*Update! Had my appointment this morning and was told i'm 3 weeks, 4 days. Which the doc says is odd that I get a BFP so early, but that I'm also having morning sickness already... Twins?!! We'll see in a month!
I've literally trolled this site for an entire year, hoped and prayed every month that I would be writing all this out. And to be completely honest, I balled my eyes out in the break room when my coworker confirmed my positive result! I didn't believe it! It's been a long year, with a lot of BFN's. Thank you to all the ladies that helped me through it! Sticky beans and baby dust for everyone!
