Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 7DPO!
Hey everyone! Like anyone reading this I've been religiously reading through these posts trying desperately to see if my symptoms matched anyone else's symptoms, because let's be honest, waiting two weeks and not knowing if you're just symptom spotting and crazy and praying for that beautiful BFP is THE WORST. A little background. This will be my second child. My DD I had when I was 22 years old and it was a surprise. I ended up going through pregnancy alone and raising on my own until I met my husband three years after! So this was technically my "first" time actually TTC with someone. My favorite board to read from my the Symptoms by DPO, because we all love a good DPO story to hold us strong while waiting. It was so helpful to me that I wanted to do one for anyone who is struggling through the two week wait. I do have endometriosis. I've had two surgeries to remove what could be removed. It was suppose to get better after I had my DD, my doctor's words, but it came back stronger than before. I was assuming this would be hard to TTC as I've read a lot of articles of woman like me with endometriosis who could not conceive. I got off my birth control about four months ago (the pill) and I was on Nexplanon for two years and got off of that like a year ago. I was charting with the pregmate ovulation kit from Amazon.com. We DTD two days before I assumed I would O (normal 28 day cycle) then I got a super dark line almost darker than the control line and we DTD that day. 1 DPO - nothing. 2 DPO - Creamy CM which is abnormal. 3 DPO - a little bit of abnormal exhaustion. Bloated. Light cramps on and off. Creamy CM. 4 DPO - 100% bloating. A bit more exhausted than normal. Headache. Light cramps on and off. Creamy CM. 5 DPO - Extreme exhaustion, to the point where I had to nap. So bloated. Light cramping. Creamy CM. 6 DPO - SO EXHAUSTED. Still bloated. Cramping. When I went to the bathroom I saw I had a few light pink and light brown spotting on my underwear. Like three little spots. This is when I assume I implanted. Creamy CM. 7 DPO - Very faint BFP with FMU. Faint but totally there and appeared before the three minute mark with FRER. WOO! Exhausted. Bloating seems to not be as extreme. Slight wave of nausea. Light cramping on and off. Creamy CM. 8 DPO - Total BFP! I know the line is going to get darker as the days go on which makes me super excited. I hope you all get your BFP's too! Baby dust to you all.
