Hello ladies! I am 25 and my DH is 32. We both have high stress jobs, him being a police officer and myself working for the government, so our schedules were a pain to overcome when trying to conceive. I have severe endometriosis and was put on 50mg of Clomid just to increase my chances of conceiving. After six months, it finally worked!
I am six days late, and I believe the only reason it was a success was because we stopped trying this month. I know that is easier said than done, and I would always roll my eyes when someone said, “just relax” or “it will happen when it is supposed to”. Well joke is officially on me lol! I have 28 day cycles and have never been late so when each day went by and AF did not show, I became hopeful. This cycle was a bit off than my previous ones and I think I ovulated two days or so later than I normally do. My OBGYN also said once you conceive it can take anywhere from 6 days to 12 days for implantation to occur, and I ended up being the end of that timeline (12 days). That day ended up being the day I was supposed to start my AF, so here are my symptoms since the day of my missed period/Implantation day since my cycle was a bit off than most.
Day of missed period/Implantation: For about 3 to 4 hours I have pinkish CM when I wiped and then it has been gone ever since. Acne was intense, I normally have small pimples before my period but these were a whole new level. Severe cramping around the same time as having the pink CM. Sex drive increase. Sore boobs and nipples
Day 2 of missed period: Acne. Sore nipples, not so much full boob anymore. Cramps on and off. Insomnia. Sex drive increase.
Day 3 of missed period: Acne. Sore nipples again. Frequent urination and increased Creamy CM. Insomnia with crazy dreams. Sex drive increase.
Day 4 of missed period: Acne went away. CM is insane. Insomnia with scary dreams. Sore nipples. Slight cramps. Craving salty foods and made a crazy pizza with feta, cherries, and prosciutto. Faint BFP
Day 5 of missed period: Fatigue all day long but the second I get a chance to sleep, insomnia kicks into high gear. Sore nipples. Bloating. Holy CM batman! I thought pregnant women dried up immediately down there but noooo. Also was emotional/kind of a b word so I feel bad for my husband. Craving salty foods.
Day 6 of missed period/today: Bloating. Fatigue. Emotional. Sore nipples. Creamy CM still hanging around. Couldn’t sleep last night and had scary dreams the entire time. Afraid to take another HPT until Sunday so that way the baby will have been implanted for a week and one day so I can get a darker HPT. Hungry.
I hope this story helps women on here as it shows you are never truly out of the fight until AF decides to show up. My cycle was way off during the one cycle I did not care about as much, and here I am pregnant with my first mini me. I pray it is a sticky one and I pray for every lady on here. I have read almost every success story during the months that I was trying and I was always comforted by the personal experiences and hope.
