Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Two week wait symptoms!

Yaaay I'm so excited to be able to be posting  my BFP on here! After 6 years of fertility treatments in 2009 we had our beautiful twin daughters, then had a heartbreaking m/c earlier this year, and a failed attempt with our last frozen embies in April.  I knew it was a long shot but figured I'd go back to the beginning and try clomid again for 3 mos to see if it could at least get me to ovulate, as I don't on my own.  And now, on my second cycle of clomid I got my BFP!!
3 DPO only thing going on was sore nips, typical for me after I O.  I got SO SICK, brutal cold, cough, thought there's no way I'm getting pregnant this cycle!
4 DPO still sore nips, barely got out of bed and was coughing constantly. Body aches, chills, all of it!
5 DPO sore nips, creamy cm, still sick, but was able to function.
6 DPO BBT temp dropped a bit, cramps, nips sore and creamy cm, ovary cramps and twinges same as last cycle that I got a BFN; feeling pretty sick again today.
7 DPO, saw a temp drop even more, still have ov pain, cramps; nips not sore anymore, starting to feel this is not a good cycle.  STILL sick!
8 DPO Ov pain, cramps, nips perhaps a bit sensitive still?  Or my imagination perhaps. Still feeling rough.
9 DPO Hey hey, feeling better today; I was sick for almost a full WEEK!  Skin breakout, gotta love that!  And NOTHING else.  Not a thing.
10 DPO A wee few niggles and twinges in my ovaries, but last cycle it seemed to be worse at this stage....?
11 DPO Wow can't believe I held out this long! Cramps again, ov pain, backache big time this morning, and tender nips again make me think AF is on her way.
12 DPO have myself convinced that this cycle is a bust, ready to move on so took an HPT.  Is that a phantom line? Took another one.  NO IDEA but I think there's a line there...??  Went out to buy another test, an early response one, and WHAM within a minute there was the most beautiful 2nd pink line staring at me!  BFP!!! Went for my bloodwork and confirmed pregnant! Though she said it was low, unless it was less than 14 dpo, which it was, just waiting for her to call back to tell me what the # was!
So here's a few words to perhaps ease your mind, as things like this eased mine when I was obsessing over stories during my 2ww's:
I was SICK AS A DOG for a week, starting 3 days after ovulation, so YES you can get pregnant if you are sick, and even coughing constantly for days! You DON'T need really sore boobs, or blue veins popping out, or nausea or stinky pee or sensitive smell, or ANYTHING out of the ordinary to tell you you are pregnant, so if you don't have anything going on, you could still be pregnant :)
Baby dust to everyone ttc and praying for sticky babies for those of us who have, and will in the future!
