Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after Mirena Removal

Cold symptoms

For months I have had nausea really bad towards my period. This month I had headaches all month. Yesterday, being two days before af, I woke up stuffy nosed and sore throat and a backache. I haven't had a cold in about 7 years since my last pregnancy. Today I got my bfp!!!! Even though my boyfriend had never been able to get anyone pregnant and assumed he was sterile.

BFP at 5 weeks!

So after spending so much time on TTC boards and reading about so many women who get their BFPs at 7dpo, 10dpo, etc., I started losing hope for this month because I couldn't even get a faint BFP.....until I was 25dpo. I was supposed to start AF a over a week ago and she was a no show, so not only was I not getting AF and I was not getting a BFP either...VERY FRUSTRATING. Finally yesterday at 25dpo I got faint (but clear) positive on 5 different test. I could not believe it. On to my symptoms by DPO....I happened to note everyday in my Ovia app, so here we go.

1DPO-Pink spotting mixed with CM after BDing..Prob ovulation spotting.
2DPO-Nothing noticed
3DPO-Mild(Not quite as bad as AF) Cramps, creamy CM and indigestion, spotting again but only when I wiped once after working out.
4DPO- Creamy CM, and a headache...notably tired today.
5DPO-Mild Cramps, pink spotting only once when I wiped after BM, mixed with creamy CM. Tired
6DPO-Mild cramps in the morning, pink spotting when wiped after BM in morning and red spotting when wiped once at night time. Tired
7DPO-So weird..EWCM mixed with red spotting once when I wiped. Creamy CM. Very moody. Almost felt sick like. This evening I noticed a "ripping" sensation in my uterus area that lasted a split second then kind left a mild soreness for maybe 10 min after. I have no idea if it was implantation or not but it was VERY noticeable and literally made me cringe when it happened, very notable.
8DPO- Spotted after BDing, mild cramps all day. Vivid dreams the last couple nights.
9DPO-This night I had a dream that I went to the dr and she told me I was pregnant but that it was to early to detect by HPT or by ultrasound...woke up just knowing this had to be the month! Mild cramps.
10DPO-BFN, noticed I hadnt had a BM in a couple of days, began feeling bloated because of that. Creamy CM.
11DPO- Creamy CM
12DPO- Creamy CM
13DPO- Definitely constipated, creamy CM. Mild cramps.
14DPO- Watery CM, Cramps, sore boobs, bloating, no BM still.
15DPO-Left boob is sore, cramps, no BM.
16DPO-Left boob still sore, no cramps today, creamy cm
17DPO-Mild cramps
18DPO-Sore boobs, mild cramping on right side, finally had a BM.
19DPO-21DPO- stronger cramps like AF is coming any min.
22DPO-My dog became weirdly clingy and still is. Boobs very sore
23DPO-Current- Sore boobs, creamy CM

The main things that I believe had me convinced this month was different is that I consistently had creamy CM, boobs were sore a lot this cycle, and the CRAMPS....I feel like I had cramps from ovulation forward. Also the EWCM a week after ovulation was weird for me. People say that's probably when implantation occurred.

BFP @ 10 DPO!!!

I am so happy to be here! I read all of these, all the time obsessing over symptoms! I realized something though, when you are pregnant, you will know, there's no questions. So here's my DPO journal!! BTW, i used OVIA to track my ovulation and symptoms, i have gotten pregnant three times in one cycle just using this app!

Ovulated on Day 15

1 DPO - Nothing
2 DPO - Nothing
3 DPO - Headache, twinges, bloating, indigestion, metallic taste in mouth.
4 DPO - Tired tired tired
5 DPO - BFN test {i know i know, if i have it i pee on it} uterus twinges, Snot white/green CM looked like straight mucus.
6 DPO - Bloating, gas, pelvic pain, side of breasts were tender
7 DPO - BFN Test, Right and left twinges with ovaries and uterus, felt like bubbles in uterus, sticky CM with little chunks of white
8 DPO - Nausea, Tender breast, bloating, gas, indigestion, diarreha, cramps, sticky CM
9 DPO - Same as day before - Fustrated at this point, thinking i'm not pregnant, just going to get my period.
10 DPO - Woke up feeling like i was going to get my period, put a tampon in. Tender breast, gas, cramps, Snot green/white Mucus on tampon with spots of brown. No period or bleeding. Later in the evening, SUPER Nauseated. Hot Flashes.
11 DPO - BFP!!!!!!!! Felt like my period was coming, put a tampon in again, took it out later and there was nothing. Was so nauseated i couldn't sleep the night before.
12 DPO - Blood test confirmed pregnancy! I've just been having mild cramping since, feels like things are stretching, pressure in my uterus, officially missed my period. Breast are stinging, nipples feel fine. Feeling really tired. I'm hungry but having waves of nausea.

I also, just had my Mirena removed 2 months ago, and i have PCOS.

Good luck everyone!!

7 Months TTC after Abortion + IUD Mirena

I'm newly 24 and was surprised how long it took me to fall pregnant again being young. I’m a health conscious yoga teacher and TTC made me realise age, health and body has nothing to do with conceiving … its Divine Will. This site helped me through the TWW.

*31 day cycle
*I never used OPK or charted temps

1-5dpo: nothing
6-9dpo: tender boobs (never, ever, ever happens so knew instantly)
10dpo: tender boobs, gassy and sleepy (on a personal note, I started to love the scent of lavender and everywhere I went there was lavender – the same thing that happened when I fell pregnant 18 months prior)
11dpo: boobs very sore, very hungry (especially at night) and tired
12dpo: boobs sore, had this weird cramp (I describe it as a 30 second intense period cramp and I was light headed and weak, then it stopped)
13dpo: boobs sore
14dpo (AF due): boobs sore + veiny, implantation spotting was literally very light brown tinge when wiping ONCE, nothing else
15dpo: Tested … BFP <3

Things I did different this cycle:
*listened to the free podcast of circleandbloom every night
*went on a holiday away during ovulation and BD every day for 9 days
*didn’t practice yoga and laid low
*ate whatever I wanted!
*didn’t test until I was late

Best advice I ever read: “IF’S ITS DIFFERENT AND UNUSUAL THIS CYCLE – YOU’RE PREGNANT”

MY BFP STORY!

3rd month TTC 1st-26 years old
O day-Noticed EWCM big time, told SO we had to do it right then and there lol
1DPO-Nothing
2DPO-Slight breast tenderness
3-7DPO-Dull cramping (I have never had af style cramping like this just a few days after period ended. I thought it was gas for a minute, but it was a persistent pain low low down in my abdomen.) also, my breasts were getting more and more sore every day. not my nipples, just breasts.
8DPO-started feeling like someone was poking me one inch below and one inch left of my belly button. pretty strange feeling, woke up multiple times with the same pain. also something I've never ever felt before. Also got pretty upset at absolutely nothing. Incredibly thirsty, usually don't drink enough fluids. now I can't get enough!
9DPO-12DPO-tested with FMU, BFN :( REALLY sore breasts, some large veins but not too visible. cramps have backed off a little. Eating as soon as I wake up. EVERYTHING sounds delicious. Especially spicy ground beef and jalapenos lol....and popsicles! Still very thirsty! Developed a sinus infection throughout the night.
13DPO-Tested BFN with FMU on FRER. Now I have a serious sinus infection, sore throat etc. Breasts are still super sore. AF due in three days.
14DPO-woke up at 6 a.m. needing to wee. Got a faint pink line on FRER after 3 minutes. Also used Cheap strip and got a negative...woah.super exciting. Began googling false positives and such, but feeling pretty confident.
15DPO-woke up again at 6 a.m. having to pee again, and tested with an even darker line on FRER almost as soon as I dipped it. not a lot darker, but I saw a difference. Also dipped my cheap-o strip and got a faint line!! Being the lunatic I am, I also went and bought a digital just to see...it was negative lol. They are nowhere near as sensitive as FRER.
I did not use OPK's or BBT. I just waited until my cm was egg-whitey and we did it once on the day I noticed it, and once two days later. So at 15DPO I have slightly less sore breasts and cramps (pulling/tugging). I am also extremely irritable! And eating everything in the world. My sinus infection is clearing up. Will be calling the doctor on Monday to get a blood test!*****If you are just starting of your TTC journey, I recommend not just jumping to OPK's and BBT charting. It can be incredibly stressful and often times unnecessary. You were made for this :)

BFP using clearblue digital opk the first month!!!

This is our 2nd baby and the third month of trying after having merina removed our first baby we tried for 6 months and I decided to try the clearblue digital with the smiley opks our first baby and we got pregnant the first month we used them!! This pregnancy I decided to try them again and got pregnant the first month we tried them again!! I highly recommend using these!!! I got a faint squinter + on 5-20-16 my husband wasn't a believer because he couldn't see it so then I thought I was just seeing things so to solve the problem I got a digital test and sure enough it said pregnant 1-2 weeks!!!! The only unusual symptoms was I had minor cramping after ovulation which isn't normal for me good luck and baby dust to all!!!!

7DPO BFP

Hi All!
So during my 2WW, I have been reading all of these great stories about BFP! I never ever thought i would be one of them.
A little background about me. I'm 33 and never had kids before. Having kids is very important to me because I am adopted and never had/knew any of my blood relatives.
I was so shocked to see a BFP at 7DPO. I thought it was wrong so I literally took 5 more. (This wasn't even morning urine.) The only reason why I took the test was because I was bored and i had so many Wondfo pregnancy test strips so I said, what the hell. Obviously wondfo tests are very sensitive!
There was no reason to take the tests because I had no symptoms and it was over a week until my period.
So the next morning, I took 2 more pregnancy tests. Both were a faint positive. I went to work and bought 2 more from the drug store. A more legit source than an internet cheapie. Positives!
That day I got in to see my doctor and she confirmed with another urine test and a blood test!
It is still very early (only 4 weeks, 13DPO, CD29) so I am not getting my hopes up just yet but the symptoms are slowly showing up. Tender Breasts, bloated, gassy and I feel a little more tired throughout the day. That is pretty much it!
Now that I think of it, on 4,5, and 6DPO, I was so incredibly emotional that I would cry... That is not like me what so ever. I would cry just thinking about random, stupid things, or cry because i heard a song or watch a show! Also, i noticed that I had more headaches than usual. Those were the only 2 things that were a bit strange but I didn't think much of it at the time.
Anyways, that is my story.
Good luck to all you! It will happen!

fan-bloody-tactic news! ;)

Hi lovelies, I actually can't believe I'm writing this after try for 8 months! I've read all of your lovely stories, laughed and cried too! Now it's my turn to spread some hope xxx
I'm 34, PCOS, Endometriosis too! Had 2 operations to remove pre cancerous cells down below (so lots of barriers) but it seems that my body has give in and let my husbands little swimmers through! Got my BFP this evening! (CD28) It's faint( will post pic tomorrow) but so pleased! We were TTC like rabbits but in jan I just said lets stop trying as it was stressing my out.... Then on drunken night 9/02/16, we got drunk and whoops!
I've had so many symptoms.... Nausea, tiredness, crazy emotional highs and lows, backache, dizziness, hot flushes, adversion to smells (especially the dog) and a toothache! My CM has been clear and in abundance with a bit of irritation 'down there' . Must start back on my prenatals now and get healthy xxxx
Baby dust, love and whoops to you all and thank you for such wonderful inspirational stories on my journey TTC xxxxx

Suspicions were correct

I've been trawling this website for the last 2 weeks. Convinced I had conceived on our 2nd cycle post Mirena coil removal but worried after seeing how long it took some following removal of this coil.
Mirena removal 19th Feb. Had one period on 9th March for 3 days and fairly light. No Mirena crash as expected after reading the horror stories.
We decided to download Ovia immediately and entered my last 3 periods (had the coil 5 years and the last 6 months my periods had restarted). My tracking showed 26 to 28 day cycles and average 25.
My story is:
Cd1 to 3 light bleeding
Cd8 and 9 spotting. Possibly ovulation bleed but was far too early according to the app as these were the first two fertile days according to charts.
Ovia suggested I was due to ovulate on cd13 so I didn't track until then.
DPO1 constipation fatigue cramps insomnia and v CRANKY
DPO2 99.86 temp nausea hot flushes increased appetite diarrhea increased sex drive headache neck ache backache (major back ache which has been a constant to today) right pelvic pain and fullness fatigue bloating gas cramps dizzy spells frequent urination insomnia. Thick creamy cervical fluid. Very wet feeling down there all day. Frustrated impatient and angry
3DPO 98.6 temp. Cold flu symptoms and stuffy nose mainly. All as DPO2 but really cranky and angry then suddenly happy and confident before being cranky and angry again. Constipated
4DPO 98.78 temp. All above but also tender BBs and diarrhea. Felt stressed cranky angry then confident focused and motivated. And back to bad moods.
5DPO 98.06 temp. School glue fluid started. No change to other symptoms. Still insomnia back ache daily and pelvic pain.
6DPO brown spotting on tissue paper. 3 tiny drops and nothing since. Assumed this was implantation bleeding. Felt like someone shoved a sharp pencil into my lower back and made me wince a little. 98.96 temp. Itchy down stairs. Indigestion -which I never get! Backache so bad I made hubby rub my tailbone area for over an hour with no relief.
7DPO neg test. Of course! Was far too early but was convinced. Temp 99.14. Nausea headache (still) bloating gassy indigestion cravings +sex drive +appetite backache (like murder) moody and angry. Poor hubby got an earful for no reason. Just v short tempered. Discharge stopped so assumed I wasn't pregnant as I'm normally dry at this stage.
8DPO neg test again. Temp 98.78. School glue is back. Same symptoms as day before.
9DPO neg test again. Naturally! Still too early. School glue and temp 98.96. Return of hot flushes and dizzy spells. No other changes to daily symptoms.
10 DPO another negative test. Starting to think it's in my head now. Temp 98.6. All same symptoms but then added to them with v serious cramping like AF was going to come early and was going to be the nastiest bitch ever this month. Convinced myself was coming on early and felt wet. Kept going to check in case I came on. No bleeding though. Plenty of school glue today.
Took kids to cinema and cried at the happy ending. Not normal for me at all....
11DPO. Was due smear test at 10.30 am so thought I'd do another test to be on the safe side. Digi one that says can confirm up to 4 days early. I'm 3 days off AF yet but thought what the hell. This test wasn't with FMU however so expected another negative. Digi response said not pregnant but when I ejected strip I could see a second line. Ran out and bought 2 more tests. One Digi from clear blue and one with the lines so I could see lines instead. Both BFP. With 3rd wee of the day. And it was a forced wee too. Digi clear blue says 1 to 2 weeks which was spot on as I'm effectively 3 weeks and 2 days from first day of LMP.
This was totally different for me. Last 2 kids I didn't get a result (but knew for ages) until I was 6 weeks gone as my HCG is apparently low rising. Also I didn't have my usual tell tale signs of really sore (unbareably) breasts. I also never get backache which I've had daily this time. So my symptoms are totally different to my last 2 children and finding out early is new for me. Just praying it's not twins now.
Your posts on this site have kept me reading for hours so I wanted to share my symptoms here for others to read too.
Good luck to all trying x

BFP after IUD

Let's start this story when I got the Mirena three years ago and got it removed on July 2015. DH 29, me 24. DH and I began baby dancing and trying to conceive our first child--We did it religiously and after 5 months of no bfp, we decided to stop trying so hard following the sperm meets egg plan. We made the transition to not trying, but not preventing. I was tired of stressing and obsessing over every ingle detail of my menses while Ttc. Each month I would get teased thinking I would get a BFP because my boobs were getting swollen and tender about three days before the witch and I would get really tired. Mind you, I never had Boob growth or boob tenderness before my menses prior to getting the Mirena so these were new symptoms to me. I learned that I cannot trust my new Menses symptoms because they always lead to the witch and not pregnancy. I also cannot rely on congestion or similar symptoms because I suffer from chronic allergies. I stopped using ovulation strips because of my lost hope and my ovulation hasn't been easy to predict after getting the IUD removed without the strips but it typically occurs day 12. It is truly a blessing that I got a BFP this cycle. My cycles average 24 days

3/3- lnmp
3/12- BD
3/14- BD
3/15- suspected o based on luteal phase, no ewcm
3/16- BD, cervix low, wet
3/21- implantation bleed?? I had the tiniest streak of pale pink discharge on the toilet paper
3/22- random bought of tachycardia at work for no reason around 11am where my HR was in the 120s. Very atypical for me
3/24- breast tenderness happens. The witch must be coming!
3/25- my boobs are so squishy. They feel like water balloons instead of my typical instant firm temporary boob job.
3/26- bad GERD at night-- never happens for me
3/27- anticipated witch, doesn't show. GERD again that night
3/28- didn't POAS with FMU because afraid witch was going to show. Woke up at 7:30a, had to urinate by 10- atypical for me. Decided to hold it a little longer and POAS at 11:30 with a BFP!!! In a lot of ways I think deep down I knew because all of these symptoms above were atypical from my norm-- the gerd, elevated HR, squishy boobs. We are absolutely ecstatic over here. Fingers crossed for a sticky bean and baby dust to you all!!
