Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP - No Symptoms During TWW!

After becoming slightly obsessive with this site in previous months, I wanted to share my BFP story!
Can't actually believe I got two this morning after what feels like endless BFNs!

After being on BC for 11 years I came off last summer & have been "officially" TTC for 4 months
(me-27, DH-33) & in Jan started taking my temp & becoming a little too obsessed with trying...well
this month I decided to stop temping & just to relax & not over-think everything. We did use a
digital OPK this month but that was it. I totally thought there is no way we are going to conceive as
we only BD'd once (day before O) due to work & so I felt pretty relaxed the whole month - it really
made all the difference!

So here are the stats & my advice, although I know how hard this is, is to try & relax as it will
happen!

Cycle - 31-35 days
O - CD 19
BD - CD 18

The only symptoms I had this month were 14DPO onwards I've felt tired & nauseous & had some
cramping - basically I thought AF was on her way! Plucked up the courage to test 16DPO & two
BFPs on Clearblue digital with "2-3" weeks pregnant on the conception indicator. So excited but
also wary as know we have a long way to go...

Baby dust & sticky vibes to all x

I understand! I got my bfp on Saturday, but I am so wary of things. I have no symptoms except sore boobs and tiny little cramps, but I don't feel any different. Best of luck to you!

Congrtaulations! Out of curiousity, did it take you awhile for your cycles to regulate post birth control pills? 

Hi Stephanie, When I first came off BC I had loads of symptoms (& tons of EWCM which from the next month onwards was never as abundant!) my cycles were a bit irregular for a while & then settled down a bit after 4/5 months & I tended to O on the same cycle day each month. Good luck with TTC if you are - I think a lot of people get pregnant straight away after coming off BC because of all the increase in hormones... Xxx

Hi Lauren, I know exactly how you feel - I keep counting down each week until the 8 then 12 week mark as I'm so scared something might happen! I have had sore bbs & quite a lot of cramping which a lot of my pregnant friends have had - why does nobody tell you about that symptom? I got really worried at first then my friend (& her best friend who is preggers & a midwife!) said it's happened to them & completely normal - phew! Fingers crossed for us both xxx

Thanks, Katie. I've been off the pill for almost 5 months now and am having super irregular periods, first cycle was 35 day, then 40, and now going on day 39 of this cycle with no period. I just want things to regulate so that we can really give ttc a go! It's a bit frustrating but a good lesson in patience! It's hard to find research on how extended birth control pill use effects your cycle and fertility but I guess it's just a waiting game from here on out. I really want to get pregnant! I very much appreciate your response. :) All the best to you and your growing family!!
