Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 12 DPO with Pre-Seed and OPK Thank You!!

I am a nursing Mom of a one year old, my period returned when she was 8 mo old and finally got regular last month so I thought let's TTC... I always wanted 2 under 2 :) I used clear blue easy OPK and Pre Seed rec by my sister in law who used it and got preg first try with it along with 3 of her girlfriends, esp when nursing your more dry so I knew I need the Pre Seed!! My husband is one of those who CANNOT perform under pressure so that was an obstacle too!! I had to keep this a secret!! BD'd 5 days and 3 days before ovulation BD'd day of smiley face on my OPK and then 2 days after positive on OPK so basically every other day maybe missed one day. Always used the Pre Seed!! Oh and always laid flat for MINIMUM of 30 minutes I prob did an hour! Also had morning sex a couple of times which I think helps for some reason!! I'm not sure if you count the day of your positive OPK as day 1 DPO or start from the day after so my days may be off by depending on how you count I started counting the day after as 1 dpo. 1-5 DPO Didn't feel much maybe some gas and little bit of increased hunger and maybe around 4-5 dpo at night felt like I had to pee but really didn't almost like feeling of a bladder infection with minor chills, this was my first indicator as I kinda got this with my first pregnancy. 6 DPO I ate meatballs for breakfast!! Very abnormal for me as I just lost 4lbs and don't eat junk, feeling more hungry maybe feelings some pulling in lower abd but could be gas from my daughter's first B-day party food and meatballs! My husband yelled at me that day and I almost started crying which I NEVER DO!!! feeling emotional and kinda short patience also getting some pimples could this all be AF on its way? 7 DPO I have to take a test I can't stand it even though I know it will be BFN got CVS brand for FREP took all 3 of course b/c I saw a faint line on one then it dissapeared but came back, same with the next one, but the 3rd one was blank, evap lines?? I was freaking out sent pics to everyone they thought for sure I was pg..My husband came home and said yes I see a line, but that was after 10 hrs and your not supposed to trust it then..ugh this is torture!! Also took clear blue easy tests they were blank BFN's 8 DPO Run to dollar store and walmart as these are supposed to be most sensitive tests!!!! BFN's completely blank!! giving up hope but still early. Having implantation cramping pinching in right side and flutters/pulling in lower abd feeling hungry in back of my mind I know I'm pg but is my mind playing tricks on me?? I call my OB to ask about nursing they say I need to wean my one year old as soon as I get a BFP!! Ugh now I'm worried what if I miscarried b/c I'm nursing... This is torture.. 9 DPO BFN's On dollar store and First Response Early Predictor (FREP) but feeling MAJOR implantation cramping, hungry and my urine has been concentrated as well, my boobs are not a good indicator as I am still nursing my one year old, now trying to wean her ughh! 10 DPO BFNs So weird why did I get 2 faint lines on those CVS brands I tried them again the same day and day after from a diff box and they were all blank too, maybe it was just that box maybe it was defective?? Definitely having painful implantation cramping I know this b/c had same EXACT pains with my first pg in exact same spot!! 11 DPO Using Walmart brand my sis in law got an early faint line on this so using it today!! Definite faint line. 12 DPO First Response Early P digital says YES+ Walmart brand has definite faint line and dollar store has faint line after 4 minutes!! I'm def pg!!! So obviously I've used every test out there, I think the equate walmart brand is the best and I guess the CVS generic for FREP was good too.. But I trusted the digital FREP the most and the walmart one actually bc my sis in law had the same thing too!! Now I need to wean my baby off the breast before I can relax I don't want to harm my baby by nursing, this is going to be tough!! But I'm sooooo excited thank you OPK and Pre Seed highly recommended

Congrats. Just wanted to say that it's not harmful to breastfeed while pregnant. Look it up and see. I nursed my children till the age of 2 and I got pregnant with my 2nd a few months before my first turned 2. I finished nursing my oldest (2-3 months) while pregnant and nothing happened to baby 2 thank God.

It sounds like you've been given some major misinformation and I just wanted to send you some resources to consider. I became pregnant with my second while my first was 18 months old (and still nursing), she continued to nurse 4 months into my pregnancy until she self weaned. I have many friends who have continued throughout their pregnancies and even went on to tandem nurse a toddler and infant. I just couldn't help but offer some other information so you can make an informed decision before feeling like you are forced to wean your babe! Personally, I found it comforting to be able to continue nursing my toddler while my body was going through all those changes. Babies sense that things are changing and those extra cuddles were definitely worth keeping it up.
