I have been reading this site like a crazy person the last 6 months, and it's now finally my turn to
post my story! I am still in shock! I have 7 pregnant friends so it's exciting to be the 8th pregnant
A little history, DH and I have a 14 month old son, conceiving him, was easy, no issues, happened
the first month we TTC, I did not realize how LUCKY I was until our recent struggles!! TTC #2 has
been gut wrenchingly hard to say the least. To month after month see the "not pregnant" took its
toll until TODAY! 10-11 DPO I got my BFP!
We did a lot of things differently this month. I started temping, took mucinex, DH and I both took
Fertility Blend, we used Conceive Plus Lube and I used OPK's. Prior months we just used the OPK's.
I am not sure if one specific thing was the trick or a combo of them all together but we are ecstatic!
Here are my symptoms which were completely different from my first pregnancy!
ODay, had extreme bloating, which I haven't had in months so it makes me wonder if all those
months I didn't ovulate?
1-2 DPO - Nothing really, temp went up to about 98.2 then to 98.4
3 DPO - Bloating again and super moody already, way too early for it to be AF but I chalked it up to
that anyway. Temp still at 98.4
4-5 DPO nothing really, temp 98.4 both days, beginning to think it didn't work this month. temps
were very flat
6DPO is when the back pain started. Again I convinced myself it was AF on the way, I usually get
back pain a week or so before. Also had some mild cramps. Temps still flat at 98.4
7-8DPO still have the back pain and cramping, gassy and still slighting moody. Had a hotflash
type episode and felt extremely nauseous and went to bed at 8PM on 8DPO
9 DPO - super bloated again, gassy, super super super MOODY. Had a minor bout of diartoos that
night and temp still flat at 98.4
10DPO, TODAY, woke up, took my temp and BAM 98.8, at that moment, I got a glimpse of HOPE.
Jumped out of bed and POAS, the only one I had in the house! Left the room and came back to the
words PREGNANT! I couldn't believe it! Still am in shock! I still feel like AF is on her way. Bit crampy
and bloated and slight back pain still. AF was due on Thursday!! X-Mas baby, not exactly great
timing but I don't care!!! :-)
I hope this helps and Baby dust to everyone!!!!!!
