How I finally got my BFP- Vitex 💊 (10dpo) plus all my symptoms!
So after a chemical pregnancy in December and a year of TTC #2 I finally got my BFP! I am still being cautious but I feel really good about this. My line is darker at 10dpo than it was after my missed period when I had my chemical.
After my chemical I looked into Vitex and it sounded like it would really help me. It’s supposed to lengthen the luteal phase (mine was usually 11-12 days), and help your body boost progesterone on its own. This is the Vitex I take- it’s on amazon for about $12. A steal in my opinion.
I take one in the morning & one at night. No negative side effects for me except a mild headache when I first started it. I will continue to take it until I’m 12 weeks and then slowly taper off. I’ve read if you suddenly stop, it will bottom out your progesterone too quickly and could result in a miscarriage.
These are the signs/symptoms I noticed:
After ovulation my EWCM stuck around for a few extra days. (It’s turned more creamy now)
Excessive mucus (CM and in my nose)
My right nipple (not breast) was extremely sore and tender around 5-6 dpo.
Heightened sense of smell
Peeing more often
Extremely cold (seems to be worse at night)
I’M SO HAPPY! Here’s to a healthy 9 months. 🙏🏼💕🤞🏼
