Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
After 1 Year of TTC, BFP This Morning!!!!!!!!
Recently, since it's been 1 year we've been TTC number 1, I was a really discouraged... (crying -
secretly- every time I heard one of my friend got pg)...
Here are my symptoms:
Oday: Strong pinching on left side (every time, I fell my O) for 5 hours, erotic dream (I have them
3 days prior to O and every night until O...every month:)
1-3 dpo: nothing
4 dpo: Gum pain and swelling (I did not want to associate it with pgcy...) oin one precise area of
5dpo: strange long dream... Really realistic...
6dpo: brown spotting after BM (I usually spot from day 6ish to AF, so I was sure AF was coming),
1 episode of dizziness
7dpo: brown spotting after BM, really bloated!
8dpo: brown spotting after BM, yellow CM, really bloated (a lot of gas...TMI I know)
9dpo:brown spotting after BM, yellow CM, one nausea episode, still really bloated, even in the
morning I was bloated, BFN (I know... too early)
10dpo: yellow CM, really bloated (telling my DH: I don't know what's going on, I'm having so
11dpo: My first BFP EVER!!!!! On early first response test. I couldn't believe it...I still can't..
What I did different this month was: cutting caffeine (only one scoop in the percolator, the rest
was 4 scoops of decaf), I had 2 glasses of wine during the wk end, twice (instead of none...maybe
I was more relax after O because of that), I took Aspirin starting at 3dpo, prenatal vitamins (not
only folic acid), and we did it: 3 days pre O, 2 days pre O and the day of O (and I was in Europe for
work 2 wks before that, so 3day pre O was your first time in 2 wks and we were sooo excited to see
each other: it was not about conceiving at all)
I hope the baby sticks....
Good luck girls!!! Even if you are a spotter (I always was sure something was wrong with me since I
spot so much before AF) and if it's been over 1 yr of TTC (for us: 13 months), IT’S POSSIBLE!!
Don't give up... :)
