Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Tubal Reversal BFP!!! 2nd Cycle after MMC!!
WOW!!! What an end to the year, huh?? Little background: I'm 25, DH 25 as well. We have 2 living children. Tubal Ligation after the birth of our DD in 2011, TR 6/2014. Since then I have been pregnant 3 times: First time with my micro preemie Tinsley (she passed away at 5 weeks old after I had a terrible bout of Pre Eclampsia that had me in labor and delivery at only 26 weeks gestation *May She Rest In Peace*), next BFP in August of this year that unfortunately ended in a MMC (I kind of knew something was going to go wrong with that pregnancy because I got my BFP AFTER a normal AF...ya that wasn't going to be pretty), and lastly right now!!! Praying this is a sticky baby, and a TAKE HOME BABY as well. Here's what DH and I did:
-AF End 12/7/15
-DTD CD: 5,7,9,11
-Pos. OPK on CD 12, Strong pos. OPK on CD 13
-DTD CD: 12, 13,14,16 (SPERM MEETS EGG PLAN basically) O'd on CD 14
-1 DPO (CD 15)-- 7 DPO: Nothing I can recall honestly. I was trying not to spot symptoms and there were few to be honest. Maybe some cramping around 7 DP0 but nothing I can remember, and to be honest if I DID have any feelings here and there 9/10 they weren't pregnancy related because baby wouldn't have even implanted yet.
8/9 DPO- CRAMPS!!! A TON OF CRAMPS!!!! I MEAN SERIOUSLY CRAMPS!! I remember feeling tired too. Squinter on a FRER. Is this my BFP??
9/10 DPO: More cramping and feeling very sleepy. I take a nap today (I NEVER nap) and when I awoke I felt a wave of nausea that I continued to feel for the next few days, to be honest, especially after laying down. BFP!!! Faint line.
10DPO-13DPO (today): I probably tested with 10 FRERS. My lines were all over the place and had me thinking Chemical Pregnancy. I mean some days they looked like they weren't even changing darkness. I literally sat over the last few days thinking AF was going to come when she was due or shortly there after because my lines were not getting any darker. I think ONE test out of all my FRER's was darker. But even that was light. I was SOO emotional all these days and cried a ton thinking "why can't I STAY pregnant?". DH was optimistic, though. Said maybe it was just too early still. I also had, and still have, a slight cold (coughing a lot) and have a nice amount of creamy CM that I have noticed over the last 4 or 5 days (maybe since implantation??) Eating more, peeing more. For SURE!
13 DPO (today): I decided to test just one more time with a new FRER since my Walmart (88c cheapies) seemed to be progressing over the last day or so. Odd, I thought. I kept thinking "how in the hell are they getting darker after almost 5 days of FAINT BFPS??". So I bought another pack of FRER and said screw it! Took another test this afternoon (like 5th day urine) and it was the darkest BFP I have received thus far!!! YAY!!!!!! Looked perfect for 13dpo. I guess my test needed for me to pass the day of AF to really get dark. And the BITCH didn't show today!!! So don't fear if your test aren't dark when testing EARLY. It may get darker by day of missed AF or shortly after.
DH and I seriously stuck to the SMEP, we used Preseed EACH and EVERY time, I laid down after every BD and went to sleep. I take a prenatal every day and try to walk at least 3 days out of a week. I took Mucinex a few days leading up to O, but I ran out and didn't buy anymore after that. I don't make a lot of fertile CM so I think that in conjunction with Preseed is a winner!! Ladies if you are on the fence about Preseed, DON'T BE!! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!! I swear I get pregnant much faster with it, 1st or 2nd cycle each time. I am praying this one sticks because the last MMC had me so shaken up. I also prayed so, so HEAVILY this cycle and over the last few days. I told myself this new year is a year for GREAT THINGS and asked God to make it so. So far, God is in agreement with this pregnancy. One thing I can say that is different from the other 2 pregnancies post TR (THANK GOD) is I have NO spotting or bleeding. With my late DD I had spotting for WEEKS before and after bfp, but that pregnancy progressed fine until I succumbed to the PRE Eclampsia and had to deliver her early. With the MMC I had a WHOLE AF!! Tested a day after she left and DARK BFP! So I can at least be happy in that so far, no bleeding. Just a LOT of creamy CM!!! And I mean A LOT!!! Good luck ladies!!!!!! Hope that was thorough enough. I always try to be as detailed as possible with these posts. Stay positive!!!
