Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
After 1.5 years!!!
Hi everyone! I am very grateful to all women posting their stories during my struggles ttc. Every month was such a disappointment. So here’s my story and hopefully it will be of some help! Some background: I’m 29 and husband is 32. I had long cycles and after a year of ttc without success, went to the gynecologist and got clomid (sometimes I would ovulate and sometimes I wouldn’t. No PCOS). 50mg round 4 of Clomid finally got me the bfp!! Ovulated CD 14 (measured with temps, ovulation tests didn’t work for me). BD with the sperm meets egg plan (every other day around ovulation time). The symptoms: 1-7 nothing 7-14 more frequent urination (at night). Husband joked that maybe I’m pregnant (as we’d been ttc for almost 1.5 years I didn’t believe him). Gassy. Boobs are sore but they were sore before due to ovulation/clomid. Difference is that before, my boobs stopped hurting one or two days before my period started. This time the sore (actually, just sensitive) boobs stayed. CD 32: Missed period!! Start feeling excited but scared to test. CD 34: BFP!!! Things done differently: the last two months, besides prenatal vitamins and clomid, I used preseed, drank pomegranate juice almost every day and ate pineapple core once on CD 17 (after ovulation to help implantation). Also, a MAJOR one: I started eating LESS SUGAR. I believe this helped a lot. Good luck to all of you. Ttc can be such a struggle. Stay strong and positive and it WILL happen to you!!!
