I promised I’d post my TWW symptoms by DPO to try and help everyone out. Please note that all my symptoms were very mild and barely noticeable. I recorded everything though. Here’s what happened during my TWW that lead to my BFP on Halloween night. Warning: Some info is TMI! Sorry, it's also very lengthy. Some back story: I had an ectopic in February and my left tube was removed. If it wasn't for my husbands quick thinking, I would have died. Since then my body has been so unpredictable. Spotting mid-cycle, pregnancy symptoms when I'm not pregnant, etc. I came on here when we were ready to start trying again and I symptom spotted EVERY cycle. I thought I was out this cycle because of my LACK of symptoms! Anyways, here's the good stuff:
AF: Oct. 6th to Oct. 12th
+OPK on CD15 and 16
BD on CD 8, 11, 13, 15, 16, and 17
O day was CD18.
Now for the symptoms:
O Day: BBT 97.9. Felt a bit emotional today, but it has been a very emotional week for us Canadians. My body is eerily quiet. Dull right ovary pinch while walking. Gassy, but that's nothing new.
1DPO: Creamy EWCM, BBT spike (98.1) confirming O day yesterday, calm, happy, feeling positive. Noticed a lot of ladybugs around the house lately… Heard they were an omen of good luck.
2DPO: BBT 98.6, holy cow temp spike! Creamy EWCM, very very mild ‘empty’ feeling in stomach in the afternoon, and a mild lower backache (great, the witch is coming *shakes fist*), stepped outside and a ladybug landed on my leg immediately. Hmm. That was odd. Very dry throat today (think I slept with my mouth open all night and probably swallowed a spider or two, lol).
3DPO: Creamy EWCM, BBT 98.5, Mount Everest is on my forehead (acne) and it’s painful! Crazy allergy attack in the morning that made me have to lay down (looking back now, this may have been the start of implantation). Gurgles.
4DPO: Creamy EWCM, BBT 98.1 (temp dip! Woot!), slight sore/scratchy throat, mild empty feeling in stomach, left side chest pain in the morning, mild twinge in center uterus while walking (hmm… Last time I felt this I was pregnant with my son… GAH! Stop over-analyzing!). Ignore it but record it anyways. Uterus feels slightly achy after going to bed.
5DPO: BBT 98.2, Slight allergies in the morning, clear sticky CM all day, mild twinges in center uterus all day, slight achy uterus all day, yellow CM? Nah. Ignore it. Ew, what is that god-awful mildew stench in our bedroom and bathroom!?
6DPO: BBT 98.3, mild right ovary ache in the morning, on/off uterus ache all day (barely there though), mild lower back pain (really? Or is my brain playing tricks on me again?!), mild center uterus twinge in the afternoon. Feeling out this month.
7DPO: BBT 98.3, BD this evening (light pink spotting immediately after, but gone by the morning), sticky/creamy EWCM (undies are a mess at 8am already and I’m stuck at work!), slight nausea on/off all day (am I really feeling this though? Probably all in my head). Holy chapped lips! I feel like I’ve licked my lips in a wind storm!! Oh they burn. They burn BAD. One poke on my right side ovary at 12:30pm. Feeling out this month. So upset and disappointed because my body has changed so much since my ectopic in February. Cried a bit at my desk.
8DPO: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! BBT 98.2, HPT is BFN. Ugh. So disappointed. Temps going down and I know AF will be riding in on her broomstick soon. My hands or my muffin taste soapy? Hmm. I just washed my hands though. Slight empty feeling again (ok seriously brain, stop screwing with me!). Getting pretty angry now. Left work early to get some Halloween stuff ready for the evening and thought I’d test again for sh!ts and giggles. Wait. Hold up- Is that what I think it is?? A faint BFP?!? Nah…. But if I hold the test in THIS light I can see something. Quick, post it to Baby and Bump forum… I take a Clear Blue digital and the test doesn’t work GAH! WTF!? Toss that one in the trash. Try the Walmart Digital brand: BFN. Hmm. Thought so. *sigh* I hate getting my hopes up! (get teary eyed). Still not convinced with the BFN’s, so I break out my FRER (even though I HATE these ones). Within 10 seconds a faint line. Could it?? Really?? OMG. The line gets darker. Holy poo balls, I’m pregnant! Try to tell hubby through my sobbing and snotty nose. He's very happy! Erotic dream about hubby and BDing in front of people.
9DPO: BBT 98.2, dry CM, HPT BFP on Clearblue digital, reads ‘Pregnant, 1-2wks’. I’m pooing. I’m POOING my pants. Other than the extreme happiness, I am feeling 100% normal. If it wasn’t for that BFP, I wouldn’t think I was pregnant. I’m not tired, crampy, no sore BBs, no diarrhea. Another erotic dream tonight about hubby.
