Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Almost No Symptoms

DH and I have been trying for 5 cycles and we finally got our BFP! I've had more symptoms in other months and the few I had this time around, matched up with ones I had in the past. Here are the symptoms that I marked in my app: 1dpo Nothing 2dpo Creamy CM? 3dpo Nothing 4dpo Faint cramping 5dpo Mild Cramping 6dpo Nothing 7dpo Nothing 8dpo Nothing 9dpo Nothing 10dpo Nothing 11dpo Light Pink Blood 12dpo Nothing 13dpo Nothing 14dpo Feeling in the evening that I might be pregnant 15dpo BFP on FRER I was thinking that I would at least have CM because I get quite a bit at ovulation, but I had absolutely no CM. Usually I'll have a little bit of CM that can appear creamy at the beginning but then it dries up, and I would get my period. The exact same thing happened this time. I still am quite dry. I didn't track my temps, but if I had been tracking, I think I would have noticed that my temps stayed high because I felt that my skin was hot to the touch and my breath had the feeling I usually only get when I have a fever. I can also say that in the evening on 14dpo I thought that my cervix felt soft but that it was low, so I figured that my period was probably imminent. So basically I had implantation bleeding as my only real symptom, but since I sometimes spot early (and its sometimes pink), I didn't think we had been successful this month. I sometimes don't get my period until 16dpo and didn't want to waste tests and wanted to wait instead. But the feeling I had at 14dpo made me test in the morning on 15dpo, and I am glad I did!

Comments

Sometimes, a woman may have symptoms and not be sure whether she is pregnant or not. Many symptoms of early pregnancy, including breast tenderness, fatigue, bloating and mild cramping, can also signal an approaching menstrual period or may be related to premenstrual syndrome (PMS). If you have not had a menstrual period and these symptoms are present, the only way to determine if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. A delayed or missed period is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed. Is it possible to be pregnant and still have a period? Some women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically this bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period. A missed period can be a symptom of pregnancy caused by something else. Nausea or morning sickness is the second most commonly reported first sign of pregnancy. Experienced to some degree by most expecting women, nausea typically shows up between 2 to 8 weeks after conception.
