New to this group (yay!) with a few questions...
I can't believe I can finally join this group :)
Firstly, congratulations to everyone else in here who's had their eagerly awaited BFP! May we all have sticky little beans and healthy pregnancies!
My name's Nadine and I live in England - I got married to my lovely hubby in June and we started ttc just before then.
I hesitated before making this post, as I'm still just 16dpo and very aware that this could be a chemical pregnancy and it's still very early days. However, I also know about the power of positive thinking so I've decided to let myself get excited... :)
I have POAS for the past 3 days and got BFP's every time - this morning significantly darker. In fact I did three sticks this morning (which DH thought was hilarious) but hey, I got a bit carried away lol
A couple of things, I'd love your thoughts on:
I've been getting mild AF-like cramps. I understand this is quite normal though? I've also been getting (TMI alert) some grim yellowy/brown CM... :-/ Similar to the end/beginning of AF... Anyone else have this?
Another thing which may be TMI is that, whereas most women complain of difficulty going to the loo at this stage, I've been going more regularly than normal! I have a very lazy bowel which means I usually have trouble, but I seem to be getting the opposite effect since my BFP?! Again, sorry for the detail... ain't this pregnancy lark glamorous, eh!
On the plus side, I've been feeling a bit 'hung-over'... Not quite nauseous but just a bit, well, hung-over! Seems I am constantly tired but keep waking up throughout the night for no reason. I usually sleep like the dead but not the last few nights. Sounds wierd but this is the only symptom that's making me believe it's actually happening so I'm quite glad of it!
Sorry for the long essay! And thanks if you've managed to read this far :)
