Oh and about the cervix, I know it is not supposed to matter in determining early pregnancy, but in my case, my cervix was VERY HIGH 11DPO and remained high until today, 14DPO, one day after I got BFP. It's still up there. Here were my symptoms:
I am 26. My cycle is usually 28-29 days. I have been off birth control for 1 and a half years (after being on it for 9 years) No know fertility issues. I do not chart. Baby Dancing 8 days prior to and 2 days after ovulation (Man, how am I able to walk?)
1 DPO: AF cramps, like ones that I have when I am on my period. Never have I experienced cramps at O...never! EWCM
2-3 DPO: AF cramps like day 1. EWCM
4 DPO: Boobs start to feel achy at night, like my bra is too tight! No other feelings except occasional twinge. CM is scarce, but what little there is is cloudy white. Cervix feels soft and low
5 DPO: Boobs sore on the sides and underneath. They just feel heavy. CM is scarce, but what little there is is cloudy white.Cervix feels soft and low
6 DPO: Boobs feel fine now. Sharp, pulsing twinge on left side all day. CM is cloudy white and flaky.but i just have that ‘wet’ feeling. Cervix feels FIRM and low.
7 DPO: Feeling nothing all day until 3pm. Start to feel pre-AF cramps, like AF will show up any day. CM is abundant, thick, and yellow tinged. This is the most I’ve had since O. Cervix low and FIRM....1 hour later, cervical exam showed BROWN SPOTTING IN CM!!! Feeling pretty confident that this is implantation spotting!!!!! AHHH!!! Not going to get too crazy though; I am still planning on waiting until 12DPO to test!
8 DPO: No symptoms
9 DPO: EXTREMELY dizzy and nauseated. Feel like passing out when shopping in the late morning.
10 DPO: No symptoms.
11 DPO: Cervix VERY HIGH and flaky CM but no symptoms. Decided to take HPT mid afternoon. Only held urine for 2 hours. BFN.
12 DPO: Cervix still very high with flaky CM, wet feeling. I am SUPER crampy, like AF is coming. Decided to take another HPT, this time using FMU. Well, another BFN. I am starting to wonder if I just tested to early. Feeling very sad and discouraged today. Decided to wait until I have missed AF before testing again. The BFN’s just KILL my mood. Still VERY crampy. Had 2 beers at dinner because I had given up hope!
13DPO: Well, I caved and did a FMU very early in the morning. Seemed to be a BFN. Very depressed. Crampy all day. Cervix high and medium firm. Wet feeling ALL DAY, creamy, bright white CM. Boobs are HUGE, and sides are beginning to get sore. I am convinced my period is coming anytime. At 6:30pm, I decide to use my last HPT for the hell of it, fully thinking it will be negative.....I use a cup to catch my urine. I smell it. It smells, uh, burnt. Very strange. Not sure what compelled me to do that! I dip the test and wait for the results.....what is that? Is that a pink line? Why, yes it is! Faint, but THERE! I decide to compare it to my morning test. Lo and behold, there IS a VERY VERY faint line on the FMU test! In my sleepy daze, I did not see it!! So, clear BFP the evening of 13DPO!!
14DPO: Still on cloud 9. Tested in the morning....still pregnant! Boobs huge, and VERY sore on the sides. Cramping still there, but milder. No other symptoms!
