I wanted to quickly write an update. This cycle I only took OPK's to predict ovulation. I had my surge on cycle days 13-15. I am always unsure about my cycle since they are frequently changing due to my weight and thyroid. But as of this morning, I wont be having my cycle for the next year or so...
I got my BFP!!!! I am shaking in disbelief!! I am so scared to really believe it, incase it gets taken away from me some how.
Here's how it went down:
6:30am got up to pee, dipped an early pregnancy test strip...waited, left the bathroom, laid back in bed for 5-10mins. Scott got up, started getting ready for work. I got up, he said "you preggers yet?" (being that i had already seen the beginning of the test, i assumed no, but i usually go back and check after a few mins.) I said, "I dont know, lets go see!" I looked at the test and it looked strange. Lots of dark pink all over, like it was a faulty test. But there was definitely a second line! I showed Scott, said "maybe". And gave him a kiss goodbye. I could hardly wait to take another, and did so right away. Luckily I had enough pee. lol. I dipped two more tests, one early pregnancy test strip and one first response. I waited a few mins, frantically walking around the house. Looked back and had two lines on the first response. And an extremely light (like my eyes were playing tricks on me) second line on the early pregnancy test strip!!! Of course I immediately dipped another first response and sure enough, 2 lines!!!
So as far as early symptoms go:
*Slight breast tenderness (since monday night) I normally don't get tenderness at all, so this was a symptom for me. Also, my breasts felt very swollen last night (tue).
*waves of nausea, again very slight, and I frequently get this so I didn't think too much of it.
*Tired. Not extreme in the least. But I did take a nap the other day, and that's not liked me.
*Implantation cramps? I had pretty bad back cramps last week thr/fri, 5 DPO-ish.
As of today, and according to the first day of my last period, I am 3 weeks and 1 day today!
So I guess that's it for now. Hopefully I will fill you all in on my blood test, and my newest symptoms. :)
Baby dust to you all!!
