Hi everyone! I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to have a baby and got pregnant in April of this year. Sadly, we lost that baby at 7 weeks in May. The first few months my boyfriend was hesitant to really try again and just wanted to do the "if it happens it happens" method. Well this month I got him to agree to trying things my way and it has seemed to work. I haven't gone to the doctor yet as I have switched jobs and I don’t have insurance until Nov. 1st but I am approx. 4 weeks. This month I used Walgreens Brand OPKs starting on CD 10 testing in the afternoon (I have a 28 day cycle) and I have been taking prenatal vitamins since April. We also planned our BD using the calendar at: www.babymed.com/fertility-ovulation-calendar-calculator. It seemed to work, cause I am approx. 4 weeks pregnant right now but still a little nervous. I will feel much better once I get to the doctor and see the baby on the screen.
Below are my symptoms by CD/DPO:
OPK (+) 9/24
BD 9/20, 9/22, 9/23, 9/24, 9/25
CD 10 - BD, Neg OPK, Sticky CM, CP Medium
CD 11 - Neg OPK, Creamy CM, CP Medium
CD 12 - BD, Neg OPK, Watery CM, CP Med-High
CD 13 - BD, Neg OPK, EWCM, CP High
CD 14 - BD, Positive OPK!!!, EWCM, CP High
CD 15 - BD, Neg OPK, EWCM, CP Very High
CD 16 - 1 DPO, Creamy CM, CP Med-High, Felt small twinges on the right side
of my uterus and dull backache.
CD 17-22 - 2-7 DPO, Not really feeling any symptoms, Creamy CM, CP Medium.
CD 23 - 8 DPO, Starting to feel slight cramps in my lower abdomen, dull backache, BBs starting to get tender, Creamy CM, CP Medium.
CD 24 - 9 DPO, Feeling the same as 8 DPO but nauseous off and on, Creamy CM, CP Medium. Took Dollar Store HPT BFN!
CD 25 - 10 DPO, same symptoms as 8-9 DPO, Creamy CM, CP Medium, Took another Dollar Store Test is has a very, very faint BFP! Not sure I really see it so show it to boyfriend who says he can see it but not convenienced and best friend who can also see it.
CD 26 - 11 DPO, same symptoms as before but increasing, Creamy CM with slight brown twinge, CP Med-High, Took FRER HPT with FMU and get faint BFP but it's darker then the pervious one.
I must admit that the brown CM makes me a little nervous since I miscarried back in May, but I hope that everything is okay and this one sticks!
Wishing sticky baby dust to everyone! :)
