Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Worked with some planning!!
I've stalked this site the last few months and had promised to upload my story when the time came. I'm 37 and we've been trying since the last 5 months. My doctor had scared me saying I have low serve of eggs and some cysts on my right ovary which may make the odds unfavourable. What was different this time? Honestly, this was the first cycle where I tracked my O day with OPKs and noted my O pain and did the BD every other day starting 1 week before the expected O day until 3 days after. I used an Ovulation calculator which took into account my cycle length (32 days). I also stayed in bed for 20 mins after with a pillow under my hips. Ok.. here goes.. the symptoms per dpo!! 1 dpo - 5 dpo : gassy. Cm - white bits on wiping. Sniffles start at 4 dpo. 6 dpo : gassy all day. Runny nose. Intense lower back pain and strange cramps in lower belly. Shooting pain through bb for about 5 minutes.... never felt that before (I suspected implantation that day) Cm still not ewcm which is what I normally have at 6 dpo before AF! Relieved. 7 dpo: Very very hungry. All the time. Which is just not me. Cm yellowish globs on wiping. Nose very stuffy at night. Nipples hurt. 8 dpo: tested with FMU ... BFN. stuffy nose, gassy, very hungry. Cm creamy glob but only when I wipe. 9 dpo: no symptoms at all other than stuffy nose. Cm still yellow glob on wiping. EXTREMELY emotional ... felt I was on an emotional roller coaster ride. (This is what my biggest clue was! ) however I was majorly upset that I had no symptoms. 10 dpo: woke up thinking my crazy emotions weren't usual.. tested with FMU ....... Very faint line... but BFP !!! Emotions still running haywire all day. Bad headache in the evening (I almost never get a headache) 11 -13 dpo: nausea through the day. Hungry as well. Headache which eades wuth rest. Emotions still crazy. Tested each morning... line doesn't darken.. but it's there. Very dark line on 12 dpo with an OPK strip!! ALL with FMU 14 dpo: Boobs sore... hurting. Tested at night.... BFP!! it's still not too dark but my friend who's an OBGYN says it's a BFP!! :-) Thanks so much to all those who've posted here and made my two weeks wait bearable. Tons of good wishes and baby dust to all the ttc-ers. Enjoy the BD... and fx!!
