BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Unsure of Symptoms By DPO

Hi Ladies!
I wanted to come on here and share my story for those of you who are impatient, frustrated, and fed-up!

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since June 2017. Not an incredibly long time, I know, but feels like eons for someone like me! Each month was one BFN after another and I couldn't take the constant disappointment.
I started monitoring at a fertility clinic, which was the best decision I ever made! Why? Because they took all the guess work out of this already calculating process.
For 2 months, I went in day after day for blood work and ultrasound until they told me i was ovulation and should dtd. Once you do, they prescribed me Prometrium vaginal supplements to assist with my luteal phase. I was on Prometrium beginning 1 DPO for 2 cycles which can cause pregnancy-like symptoms. Also, keep in mind, I am the worst symptom spotter! I get lost in message boards. Anyway were my symptoms prior to getting BFP while on Prometrium:

Nov 27th 1 DPO: No symptoms. Started Prometrium morning and night
2 DPO: no symptoms
3 DPO: mild pressure in lower stomach and upper vag towards end of day. Thinking it may be a tummy ache and too early for symptoms
4 DPO: Increase in CM by end of day. Probably the Prometrium
5 DPO: Chunky cottage-cheese-like CM. Probably the Prometrium
6 DPO: No symptoms. CM returned to normal
7 DPO: cramps and bloating but chalked it up to eating bad food
8 DPO: left boob a little sore near armpit, but not to the touch. Might be in my head
9 DPO: boobs slightly sore on and off
10 DPO: boobs slightly sore and weird sharp pain to the right of my belly button on and off
11 DPO: boobs slightly sore. mild cramps by end of day
12 DPO: boobs slightly sore
13 DPO: slightly sore boobs, dull headache. Boobs look a little bigger but probably in my head
14 DPO: tired but i just made a big brunch for my family. Boobs slightly sore
December 11th 15 DPO: Upper and middle back hurting, boobs slightly sore, dry CM, cervix low, hard, and closed. Went in to the clinic this morning for my blood test and they called to tell me i'm 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant! I'm in shock I got my BFP!!! It's so unreal to me but I wanted this message board to be the first place, the first people I tell about my pregnancy (I will surprise my husband tonight). Boards and sites like these were so incredibly helpful and insightful and not only got me through the dreaded 2ww, but the 9 months we tried to conceive.

Ladies, I urge you to share your stories and symptoms because it truly helps those going through the process!

If anyone has questions, please let me know!
