This is particularly for all the lovely ladies out there who have been trying for SO long! I want to
give you all HOPE! I know that I lost all hope after so long! Finally after 14 heartbreaking months of
BFNs, my darling hubby & I got our BFP last night at around 9:30pm! (Funnily, I wasn't going to test
til Friday but I had a spare OPK and so quickly peed on that & it came up positive instantly – I KNEW
something was up, so sent hubby down to the chemist LOL).
A little about us – I'm 29, Hubby is 38 & it's our first. We haven't gone for any tests as we wanted to
give ourselves a little longer, but I did get tested and knew I ovulated and I have regular periods of
between 28-31 days each month.
Anyway here is how the month played out.
CD 1 – Feeling a little lost & desperate. Decided to go to this shop in town where they sell pendants
that represent something. On one of the jars it said 'fertility'. It was actually one of those Egyptian
"Anah " symbols that represent infinity & life. I wore it around my neck every single day & even
while sleeping. It had this really strong & positive energy.
CD 14 – started getting a little ewcm, so BD in morning.
CD 15 – BD in morning. Afterwards I laid with a pillow under my back and kept my legs up in the air
for a full twenty minutes. I made myself orgasm again to ensure those swimmers went right up
there ha ha
CD 16 – didn't BD as far too tired. BUT had mega ovulation pains in the evening. To the point where
I got a hot water bottle.
CD 17 - Continued O pains & the tiniest of EWCM (but can I just say that I never experienced the
EWCM that people talk about everywhere. Mine was just a tiny amount on my undies, and it didn't
stretch anything over a cm like people say it does). BD in the evening and kept my legs up for 20
minutes at least, made myself orgasm.
(*Side story, I saw a kenisiologist today for the first time in five years. I was desperately hoping
natural therapy could help. She did a full two hour treatment on me! And what can I say, I'm
pregnant now after 14 months of not being able to get pregnant! I want to send her flowers haha
she explained to me that there was a mental block & she removed those blocks!)
CD 18 – BD in the evening again (thinking O was coming to and end here so thought I'd give it one
last try!) Kept legs up for 20 minutes after & orgasmed.
Skip forward a week now as nothing happened…
DPO 7 – strong AF type cramps in the evening. It was the first "sign" for me as why would I be
getting AF cramps so early?
DPO 8 – Sore BBS. Only on either side, and only when I sort of prodded them!
DPO 9 – 12 I noticed in this time different things like flushed cheeks, quite gassy (and that's really
not me), lots of CM (WOO HOO now I knew that had to be a sign!), and milk AF style cramping
DPO 13 – Well in the evening I really thought I was out of the game because I had quite strong AF
cramps, and pains. I was so wet down there that I thought it was on its way any second. Whilst I
was sleeping I had radiating through my whole body type AF pains.
DPO 14 – Fully expected to wake up to AF but nothing (how strange!). All morning though I
cramped, and then suddenly they kind of stopped, and still no arrival of AF. I knew something was
up. I had so much watery discharge it was amazing! Then at around 7pm I tested with the OPK
and positive, and then HPT and BFP!!!!!!!!
The things we did different this month:
ONLY BD on the four days of ovulation (two before, two after)
Went to see a kenisiologist
Bought my lucky charm
Laid with my legs up for 20 minutes after & made myself orgasm
I wish you all the very very best of luck!!!!!!! You ladies who have been waiting for a long time,
don't lose hope! Your BFP is just around the corner! xx
