Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
I thought I was kidding myself!
Hey Two Week Waiters! First BFP at 11 DPO. Another BFP today at 12 DPO. Those double pink lines are faint, but definitely present! POAS at DPO 10, but that was a BFN. What a difference 36 hours can make! According to the Ovia App, I ovulated on CD 15 and did the baby dance with my DH on the same day. I started to experience symptoms shortly after, but chalked it up to the mind games I usually play with myself during the TWW! The sides of my boobs were very tender in the days that followed ovulation - I've read this is quite normal whether you're TTC or not, though it was particularly intense for me this month. Around 5 DPO I started to experience some uterine cramping and sporadic, shooting pains that travelled upward from my vagina to my cervix. They only lasted for a few seconds. Around 6 DPO I began to feel some mild queasiness. The cramping continued. No unusual post-ovulation CM or spotting until DPO 8 when I noticed some odorless discharge with a hint of highlighter yellow in my undies (aka leukorrhea). Got the BFN on DPO 10. Not even a hint of a pink line! And I stared long and hard. I thought, oh well, and went about my day. That evening, the queasiness returned in full force. For a while, I thought I was going to throw up. Turns out I had a massive case of the runs instead. At 11 DPO there was no denying that my boobs (36DD at baseline) felt fuller and very heavy. Ouch! I also had some morning cramps that felt particularly like the ones I tend to get a few hours before AF arrives. I thought my chances of a BFP were shot, even though AF wasn't due to appear for another four days. But that afternoon I began to feel the pulling/pinching sensation I've read about from others on this site. Why not POAS for old time's sake? Got my first BFP then and there! I ran to share the results with my DH. He seems a bit terrified, but delighted all the same. If it all works out, this will be our first baby. Sending good thoughts to all you baby makers out there!
