Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Spotting 5 days before bfp
This website was my saving grace for 8 months.. Even though 8 months doesn't sound like a long time, in the waiting game of trying to get pregnant, it feelt like an eternity. I promised myself I would post on here after I received my bfp for other users to stay hopeful. Here's how my story goes... My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 2 months without any planning or use of anything other than dtd when we wanted to. After that I used OPK's religiously for the remaining 6 months. I found clear blue advanced to be the most helpful, because it allowed me to know before I received a peak, which I believe helped with our success this month. At the 6 month mark, after trying dietary changes, opks, pre-seed, fertility tea, temping, and monitoring my cm and cp, I contacted a local acupuncturist whom I had known to be successful. I booked the appointment with my husband and began going to weekly appointments. After two rounds of acupuncture, I got my bfp. The only thing that we did differently this cycle than others, was change up the timing of dtd around my opks. Using clear blue advanced OPK's we dtd the day before the high reading, the second day of a high reading/flashing smile, and the second day of the peak reading/static smile. We did use pre-seed this month, and I did not use the restroom for at least a few hours after. 5 days before my bfp, I started to have a brown discharge, but only when I checked my cp. The next day was my acupuncture appointment to promote implantation, and after the appointment I had a watery bright red discharge, but only once when I wiped. The next two days I continued to have the brown discharge, but again, only when I checked my cp. I took a pregancy test two days before my bfp, and both were bfn. The day before my bfp I had no spotting at all, and my cm went very wet. The next day I took a fref and a clear blue +/- and both showed a bfp. Other than the spotting, I had no signs of a bfp.
