Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Unexpected Miracle - battling through Endometriosis & Crohn's

Let me just start by saying this TOTALLY caught us by surprise! We had been trying off and on for about 6 months to get pregnant. Since it had not happened yet, and since we are both still fairly young, we decided to just give it a break for a while. After all, I figured it would be hard for me to get pregnant anyways with my health history (endometriosis & Crohns Disease). After we stopped trying to get pregnant, that's when we conceived :)

I have a fairly regular 27-28 day cycle with ovulation falling around CD 13-14.

DPO 1-8: literally no symptoms at all. {I recognized more "symptoms" in the months I didn't conceive than I did this month!}

DPO 9: feeling very nauseated this morning and afternoon until around 2:00. {didn't think anything of it since a coworker of mine had just gotten over the stomach bug}.

DPO 10: nausea in the morning and afternoon until around 1:30 or 2:00; fatigued (normal PMS symptom for me, though)

DPO 11: {morning} no nausea; {evening} light pink, "gooey" spotting (thought I was starting my period 5 days early)

DPO 12: no spotting, very dry; no symptoms except fatigued.

DPO 13: thinking for sure it would be a negative pregnancy test, I took an Internet cheapie anyways. BFP!!!! (Test line appeared before control line). In disbelief, I took another one. Another BFP!! {cue total shock!} My best friend suggested that I go to the store immediately and get a digital test. So I did. Results: PREGNANT 2-3 WEEKS! Crazy shocked.

DPO 14-15: fatigued & moody (crying, laughing, and mad -- at crazy things -- all within 30 minutes).

DPO 16: blood test confirmed pregnancy at doctor's office; confirmed 4 weeks along at this point

DPO 16-20: nauseous from around 10-1:30 every day; very tired all of the time; extremely hungry but can't seem to eat a lot at a time (I get full very easily); VERY sensitive to smells; very emotional.

I hope this story gives hope to someone battling endometriosis and/or Crohn's disease! God has a plan & will fulfill His plan at just the right time! Hang in there, and God bless :)
