Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Father's day bfp, on edd of Nov loss
Hello ladies! While this is my first post, I have been stalking this site for nearly a year, each month searching out and comparing my symptoms, praying for my own bfp. A little backstory, and then I'll get right to my symptoms by dpo.. I'm 37, DH is 31. I have one dd from previous relationship who will be turning 19 at the end of this month. Last August, DH and I decided ttc, and by October we had our bfp. At 9.5wks, we discovered the hb had stopped at @ 7.3wks, and we were obviously both shocked and devastated. 2 wks later, I miscarried naturally. We decided to begin ttc again immediately, given my age, and each month I would symptom spot and be certain I was pg, but either af would begin right on time or that ugly bfn would stare back at me and I would know she was on her way. I also knew that 6/15/14 would be a very difficult day for us, as it was the edd for our angel baby, as well as dh's brother and fiance's due date.. (yes, we were due on the same day, which made the last 7 months heartbreaking). Well, yesterday, on 6/15, I gave hubby the best first father's day gift ever when I showed him a very clear bfp at 13 dpo! Hoping and praying this is our miracle baby xoxo 6/1 (cd 16) positive opk bd 6/2 positive opk bd cd 17 confirmed ovulation with bbt 1-7dpo no symptoms 7dpo temp dip .04 8 dpo temp spike, feeling famished, oddly exhausted and some strange pulling/pinching lower abdomen 8dpo-current bbs progressively tender, ultra sensative nipples, dull af type cramps/pressure. temps still high, however at 10 dpo a major dip, which I firmly believed was a sure indicator of the witch and that I was out again this month. Also at 10dpo, side cramps on right, as though I drank a gallon of water and then ran a mile. So painful that I had to sit down at work. However, an hour later I was fine 10dpo until now, peeing a lot more than usual, cp hsc, bbs sore, cramping/pressure continues. Yesterday, at 13dpo, I decided to take an hpt, and only because I was winded after coming up one flight of stairs. That was the first time I thought poas may not end in tears, and being the edd of our angel, I didn't really think I could handle the bad news, but something inside told me I wouldn't be upset. VERY CLEAR BFP! Hoping this baby sticks. Calling dr today to schedule beta and have progesterone checked. We are overwhelmed and I guess I just want to thank all of the ladies who contributed their own bfp stories because reading them gave me the hope that we needed to continue.
