I promised myself, like many of you have, that I would share my bfp story here to help others who are symptom spotting.
I'm 26, DH is 29, we've been ttc for 2 years on our own, went in to see a fertility specialist this month and it worked!
First of all, I actually ovulated on my own this cycle which is really unusual for me.. so that was pure coincidence.
Second, we got to see when I was going to ovulate through u/s.
Main symptoms are: bloating, gas, sore hips and legs, dizziness when I stand, and insomnia.
I can't sleep worth a crap. I'm not very tired, not like I thought I'd be, but then again, I'm used to running on very little. The things that stood out to me the most were the dizziness. I got dizzy riding my bike to school the other day and I get out of breath really easy when I exercise which is really unusual for me... I have been forgetting IMPORTANT things.. and idk.. I just knew.
0 dpo: gassy, heartburn like crazy (didn't even know that's what it was..had never had it before, dh filled me in on the nitty gritty), backaches that started in my pelvis and fanned out into my back, less hungry, INSOMNIA
1 dpo: right pelvic pain (o on right side) bloating, pee a LOT, INSOMNIA
2 dpo: gas, gas, gas (wtf?! not usual for me), dizziness when I stand up, bloating, dull crampyness, INSOMNIA
3 dpo: better appetite, pee a LOT, bloating, gas, dizziness, INSOMNIA
4 dpo: VERY tired, dizziness, mild cramps, bloating, gas, pee a LOT, INSOMNIA
5 dpo: sleepy but not worn out... like i'm getting sick, pee a LOT, headaches, dizziness, bloating,
mild cramps, INSOMNIA
6 dpo: bloating, gas, pee a LOT, dizziness, INSOMNIA
POS- BFN (I have a problem, ok?)
7 dpo: first sign of morning sickness- woke up and felt fine then ate and felt very sick, sore legs and hips (this one has continued HARD), bloating, gas, pee a LOT, dizziness, less appetite, INSOMNIA
pregnancy brain. I let my dog out to go pee and forgot about him until he whined ten minutes later at the door. I FORGOT MY DOG OUTSIDE!
8 dpo: nausea, bloating, pee a LOT, joint pain, tight muscles like I ran a marathon, INSOMNIA I felt very pregnant. I had no inclination by this point that I could be out this cycle.
I POS- BFN
9 dpo: Sore legs and hips...like SERIOUSLY, bloating, dizziness, gas, INSOMNIA
pregnancy brain- I left my backpack at home...walking a mile to school. o.m.g.
10 dpo: nausea, fatigue, dizziness, bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA
11 dpo: dizziness, bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA
12 dpo: bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA POS- BFP!!!!!!!
Honestly, the test came up positive right away... but you know those minutes of waiting can seem like a rollercoaster. At first the pink color started to hover over the test line (never seen it do that before) as it washed over and that was really strange to me, so I keep watching and I see the control get darker, then I think... "no way this is negative. I have to take out another test.. this one is bunk.. there's no way it's negative." I was getting ready to straight up pick up another test when I look back and it's positive. Faint, but not VERY faint!! (pic is in gallery)
BABY DUST TO ALL OF YOU!!! GL AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!! <3*<3*<3
