Natural miracle after 7 years TTC & IVF

I am still in shock if I am honest and had virtually no idea that I was pregnant at all. As I am a weirdo I still keep track of all of my cycles just in the hope of a natural miracle. If this hadn't happened to me I almost wouldnt believe it.

2dpo - dizzy when wake up
7dpo - started to have slightly tender breasts (thought it was just from the gym and weight training)
9dpo - slight cramping
10dpo - dizzy when wake up
11dpo - brown spotting - usual for me so thought nothing of it
12dpo - brown spotting - super emotional thought for sure my period was coming
13dpo - brown spotting - was thinking that I never usually spot for three days but my body always surprises me with these things
14dpo - spotting had stopped. went for a 12km run and felt a little off, kept pushing as I am training for a half marathon. Got back and felt extrmely light headed and expected my period to come. Thought I would do a test for a laugh and hopped into the shower. I am used to seeing negative tests and have never gotten pregnant naturally. I kept putting off testing as usually my period just comes after the spotting.

Got out and was like OMG WTF is this? Called hubby in and he said "oh I think you are pregnant". I was shocked and we were laughing. Stunned and unsure what to do next I called the medical centre and went for a blood test as it was Sunday so my GP was closed.

After all of this time, 7 years, multiple IVF's and two chemical pregnancies could this really be it?

14dpo HCG 48, progesterone 60
16dpo HCG 116, progesterone 61

Looking good! When asked what I did differently I initially said nothing, just carried on with life and started to enjoy not having kids LOL. I hadn't been taking my pre pegnancy vitamins and have been exercising pretty hard.

When I think about it I have been doing Chinese herbs and I did take DHEA (for egg quality) for a month in Dec - although they say you need to take it for 3 months to see effect.

BFP with Unexplained Secondary Infertility for 2.5 years

Hi ladies,
I promised myself I would share our journey to BFP #2 if or when it actually ever happened.
Whether it’s primary infertility, secondary, etc., I know how incredibly difficult, painful, frustrating, and lonely this infertility process can be at times. I’m hoping my story will provide even one person some glimmer of hope.
I am turning 36 in May; wonderful, caring, supportive spouse turned 40 in October. We have a wonderful little boy who is turning 5 in July and starting kindergarten this year! When we started trying to conceive him, we were incredibly blessed it only took 4 months. I had a very easy, uneventful pregnancy and gave birth to him at 31.
I always envisioned having 2 children, 3 years apart. We started TTC #2 in July of 2014 thinking it wouldn’t take long. Had I known, we would have started WAY earlier.
Fast forward 8 months, I went to the OB that delivered my son concerned that we’ve been TTC for 8 months. She ran some initial bloodwork and all looked good. She said to come back after one year of trying if no luck.
One year later, I was back in her office. My husband had an SA with no issues (of course, he’s extremely proud of). I had a more in depth US which was unremarkable. MY AMH, LH, FSH, E2, PG – all labs were perfect. I had an HSG which was perfect. I was given the horrible diagnosis of “Secondary Unexplained Infertility.”
Though I have regular periods, always got a positive OPK on days 14-17 each month, she prescribed my Clomid to “boost my ovulation”. I was on Clomid for SIX months, unmonitored. The only monitoring I had was an ultrasound on day 12/13 each month to confirm there was a ripe follicle so I could trigger. No discussion of my lining or E2 levels. Looking back at my records – my lining was incredibly thin, a side effect from repeated use of Clomid. It also gave me terrible hot flashes and agitation. We switched to Femara for 2 more months (huge fan of vs Clomid) both with IUI but no success. In April 2016 (month 20), we decided to take a break.
In June (month 22), my sister in law convinced me to get a 2nd opinion with an infertility specialist, someone other than my OB. I felt like I was betraying all the work my OB had done but agreed – BEST DECISION EVER. I highly recommend working with a specialist – OB’s are wonderful, but not trained in all that can be involved with infertility. I had all the same labs repeated and was given the same diagnosis of “Secondary Unexplained Infertility.” She did order a different type of Ultrasound I hadn’t had yet -- an SIS (saline infused ultrasound) -- which showed I had a small polyp in my uterus which she didn’t think was the cause but wanted to remove it via hysteroscopy anyways. She also suggested I let her perform a laparoscopy at the same time to look for endometriosis. I was skeptical because I had NO symptoms of endo.
In July (month 23), I had the surgery and bam! Stage 1 endo. Though I was saddened it was only Stage 1 (never in my life did I think I would actually want endometriosis but anything was better than the “unexplained”), she was confident this was the issue. She cleaned me out and we were able to start trying again in August. We did 2 rounds of Femara, beautiful follies each time, no success.
Then 3 rounds of Follistem + IUI, responded well each time with multiple mature follies, still no success.
In January 2017, I decided we needed a break. The 30 months of trying was killing me. It changed me as a person. I was always agitated, depressed, starting to pull away from family/friends – TTC was consuming me. My whole life had revolved around giving our son a sibling and I had completely lost myself in the meantime. I started to think -- maybe our son was our miracle?
The next month in February, my husband and I went on a quick trip to Cancun for 4 nights. AF decided to show on the way to our departure gate. Seriously!!?? On a positive note, I was able to enjoy many fruity cocktails! Pina Colada con Mas Barcadi, por favor? Our second night there though I broke down in tears while having dinner. My husband and I decided I would talk to my primary doctor and get put on an anti-depressant when we got back.
5 days after getting back, I started Wellbutrin. Instantly felt better, had a TON of energy, but struggled with a little insomnia. Still better than the depression caused by the months of infertility.
Here we are now in March of 2017, week 3 of Wellbutrin, one month after getting back from our trip. I noticed my energy was gone and I was crazy tired. Tested 9 or 10dpo, very very very faint line. Labs drawn today, 11 or 12dpo, PREGNANT! And naturally. Beta 42 and progesterone 18.4. My husband and I had just discussed booking an IVF consult for June or July.

BFP two months after miscarriage

I always told myself I would post my story since there are so many different stories and there could be someone going through what I did,end up reading this, and having hope. That is what this website did for me. I never thought reading stories about a bfp (an unhealthy amount of stories a day might I add lol) would have such an impact on my negative or positive mood.
I'll start with a little background story. I'm 26 years old, and from the age of 18 had an addiction that I would try to beat for 8 years. I decided to make a life change and leave it behind however I always felt inadequate, I felt like I could never be a good mom after some of things I had went through. I felt like I had ruined my body and chances of even carrying a child but God saw something different for me. I never thought I would get my life together, meet a genuine guy who loved me and treated me right, and that I would live a life of normalcy. By the grace of God I was able to overcome those things.

In December I found out I was pregnant. I wasn't trying,but like I said I thought I could never get pregnant so I thought it may be stress. I took a test at a week late and it was negative. When I still hadn't started two weeks later I took a second one and it was positive. I was in shock, I panicked, I thought everything I had worked for all of the goals I had in place were at a hault. I honestly didn't know how to feel. Someone close to me talked me through it and explained how God had given me a new purpose in life and those words changed everything. When I really thought about it financially we would be fine,I was in a healthy place emotionally, and I finally got a little confidence that I could do this. I was good enough to be a mom. But after a week of constant cramps and spotting red blood I knew something wasn't right. I went to the ER because I had no idea what else to do,and found out I had miscarried. The heartbreak was worse than anything I had ever experienced (which has been a lot with my past). I once again felt even more inadequate, I thought it was my fault,that my body just couldn't handle it. I never thought this would have such an impact on my life. I had fell in love with the idea of being a mom, of the new life I had ahead of me. The sleepless nights, the stress, but all for an amazing purpose. I went through a depression, the first month I couldn't stop obsessing about it. I had came up with all of these insane reasons of why I had a miscarriage until I realized how it's actually almost normal. I finally had gotten to a better place and we decided maybe we could try and start a family. So we did. After my first period after the miscarriage.
I wanted to try but I didn't want to try so hard as to stress my boyfriend or me out during the process. So I did simple things like checked my discharge daily, downloaded an ovulation app, had sex every other day give or take a few days. I actually started eating healthier, making sure I had my greens every day etc. Which I'll be honest these things still stressed me out. I never realized how stressful getting pregnant could be! I just pictured it like a movie.
I was up and down the entire month.

9 DPO...and 4 months later I got my BFP!!!

I got my BFP a little after midnight, I took my boyfriend dinner to work (we both work nights, different schedules) and came back home after stopping at Walgreen's to get a pack of two FRER tests (the new and "improved" curved handle type).

A little back story: I assume I ovulated on the 7th based on my cycle tracking app (Flo)...but I didn't confirm with OPKs or BBT (for the first time since trying, funny how that works!) I have been very gassy, constipated, fatigued, and my breasts have been a little sore...but nothing that SCREAMS "pregnant!" I did have a LOT of cervical fluid earlier today and it wasn't like my pre-menstrual discharge...and that is honestly what made me want to test tonight. I also have had weird cravings and certain things making me gag, but I thought that could just be in my head because I wanted this so bad.

I was so excited, I went back up to my boyfriend's work with pink and blue snacks/drinks and the test...he was so excited and I'm just over the moon.

Note: I took a FRER first and got a positive...and CB second a few hours later and got a positive as well, much darker too!

BFP age 38

Hi Ladies

Ive just got my BFP after 5 months of trying after losing a baby late on last year (the baby was fine, i had an infection). It took us a while to conceive the baby we lost so I was worried about now being a year older. I did a lot of research into supplements that improve egg quality and fertility and I thought I would post here incase it helps others. I had my AMH tested recently and it came back low - 4.3 p/mol. This worried me a lot. After that i had my antral follicles counted and this was fine (17). I'm really not convinced on the value of AMH personally after doing a lot of reading about it. I wish i had never bothered having the test. I also have a retroverted uterus which probably makes things a bit harder for us but i've conceived 5 times in total (2 children).

Supplements I took:

For egg quality:
DHEA (do you own research on this). Its supposed to take 3-4 months to work and i conceived after 3 months. I played around the with dose, starting on 25mg for 10 days, then 50 for 10 more days then 75mg. After 8 weeks i dropped back to 25mg as i had my DHEA levels tested (saliva test - £40) and they were the upper end of normal. I didn't want them higher than this. DHEA i supposed to increase antral follicle count, AMH and egg quality. I would definitely consider it if you are over 35 and have trouble conceiving. There is also evidence that DHEA reduces miscarriage by 50-80% which the impact being most dramatic in older ladies. The side effects i had was slightly greasy hair at first but nothing major, little spots but again nothing major, it made my hair go a bit limp but it didn't get thinner or fall out.

Ubiquinol - 300mg per day
Alpha lipoid acid - 600mg
PQQ - 100mg
N-Acetyl-Cystenine - 600mg
DHA

For general fertility:
Pregnacare multi vit
Vitamin D
B6
Vitamin E

I read the book "it starts with the egg" - i would highly recommend this. After reading it i stopped taking L-Argnine and Royal Jelly. Theres no evidence either way on Royal Jelly but there is evidence L Arginine can be harmful to egg quality and implantation.

After 3 months of taking the above i conceived, although i had only just started vitamin E, not sure if that made a difference.

I've had 2 chemical pregnancies (in the past, not recently) so I have waited to write this until i'm sure this is not a chemical. My tests are getting darker and darker and i'm currently 17dpo. I know there are no guarantees but so far its going ok.

Other things i did:
Gave up caffeine and only drank alcohol if i was out - maybe twice a month
drank wheatgrass powder
Started acupuncture in November - this helped me greatly with stress and anxiety after my loss. I would highly recommend trying acupuncture.
drank lemon water all day - helps make the body alkaline and detoxes the liver
soft cups
Ovulation tests
lay on tummy afterwards (supposed to be good for retroverted uterus)
pre-seed

Symptoms

I ovulated a little late CD 17 or 18.

4dpo - mild sore boobs, tired, a little thirsty
6dpo - night sweats - this is normal for me and i thought i was definitely out - its usually a sign AF is coming, mild headache on and off
7dpo mild cramps like period pain
8dpo - much stronger cramps in the evening, just like period pain
9dpo - night sweats again - expect to start AF very soon as i have a short luteal phase since taking DHEA (9 or 10 days)
10 dpo -mild hot flashes - usually a bad sign for me so was sure my period was coming. Some mild heart palpitations
11dpo - convinced my period is coming although its a little late now. I had period paid exactly like when AF comes. I went out and got drunk that night i was so sure i was out.
12 dpo - Couldn't sleep last. Nothing all day then hot flashes in the evening, gassy, a little reflux at the back of throat.
13 dpo - took a test and got a BFP pretty quickly. Then had some brown discharge and thought it was another chemical. Lower back ache, still feel like period is coming
14dpo - pink discharge when wiping - sure this is not going to last. Cramps, backache, slightly queasy in the morning. woke early again
15dpo - darker HGC test. woke early again, still got lower backache, slight queasiness. No discharge/spotting
16dpo - Struggled to sleep last night, aching legs and couldn't drop off. darker HGC test, mild night sweats, sore boobs, mild back ache. tired in the afternoon.

Currently 17dpo and praying this pregnancy is ok.

Hope this helps someone out there. Best of luck to you all.

15 Long Months. Finally pregnant with our first at 9 dpo

After 15 long months, we are finally pregnant! I wanted to submit my story because I really benefited from reading these stories throughout my time TTC. A quick back story is that my husband and I were trying to conceive for our first as soon as we were married. Me (31) and my husband (30) want 4 children and we figured we'd better get on it. I had heard from my co-workers and friends how challenging TTC can be, so we thought we try. We found out the hard way that trying to have a baby isn't so easy.

I tried everything under the sun during these 15 months including tracking basal body temperature, opks-both cheap and expensive, preseed, coq10, cod liver oil, fertiliaid, vitex, prenatals, Femara, progesterone, municex, eating pineapple, consuming high fat dairy products during ovulation, waiting 15 minutes after sex with legs up on the headboard, softcups, sperm-meets-egg-plan, daily sex during fertile window, sex every other day, cutting caffeine and alcohol, detoxing, yoga to stimulate fertility, exercise, decreasing exercise, and husband taking supplements including fish oil, coq10, and men's daily vitamin. I tried everything I read within reason.

After about 6 months of TTC I went for a preconception appointment. Within a couple months of that I was having inconsistent results on OPKs and I was prescribed Femara to promote ovulation and progesterone to encourage implantation. My husband had a semen analysis that came back all good as well. I stopped using digital OPKs because I didn't feel as though I was getting an accurate reading.

12 months into TTC I got an HSG test done that came back normal. I also have had bloodwork done on my thyroid, FSH levels, AMH levels, progesterone levels, and probably others that all came back normal and healthy. There appeared to be no reason why I wasn't getting pregnant, but I wasn't. My husband and I are healthy adults who exercise regularly and eats healthy (to a degree- I love sweets :) and my husband loves beer).

15 months TTC I met with the RE who said I would likely be diagnosed with unexplained infertility. She explained there was a couple more tests she could do, but that IUI with Clomid would likely be our best option, but we only had a 10% chance of that working. We could later consider IVF which has a 70% chance of working.

2 weeks later, I got a faint positive at 9 dpo. I am in shocked and cried tears of joy! I just fall to my knees and praise the Lord for this blessing! I had a feeling this might be our month!

Here's my breakdown:
Month 15

What I did differently:
Much more apathetic about trying as I knew we were meeting with the RE.
Stopped using Femara (I had been using for past 5 cycles or more)
Didn't obsess as much over timing, OPK testing, and HPTs
First month using Fertiliaid. I do not think this is the only reason I got pregnant, but I may have helped

What I used:
Preseed- great lube regardless of TTC
Tracking BBT to confirm Ovulation
OPK- cheap online strips with afternoon urine
Prenatal, CodLiver Oil, Vitex, Fertiliaid

We BD: CD 5, 10,12, 15, and 17. I think I ovulated CD 14 per OPK and BBT.

DPO: 1-5 No Symptoms. I noticed absolutely nothing which was different in other cycles. I perhaps had some fatigue, but that's also normal for me.
6-7 DPO: Spotting. I am a chronic spotter, but not this early. It was a watery brown on my underwear and when I wiped. It seemed to stop 8 dpo, but I noticed more the morning of 9 DPO.
9 DPO- brownish spotting when I wiped, but I noticed a faint line on the Wondfo brand. After 15 months- I've learned if that if you really want to see a line, you'll see a line, but I took a first response 6 days soon and saw a faint, but clear line. My first ever BFP!!! I cried and cried and praised God.

I was told I needed IUI or IVF to have a baby, but we did it all naturale! I was prepared to do whatever it took to have a baby, but God had a plan for us already.

In my 15 months TTC, 30+ women I knew personally announced their pregnancy. Please know that through this journey TTC you are not alone. Don't give up hope! Allow yourself to feel whatever you feel! For me it was sadness, anger, jealousy, resentment, hopelessness, fear, but I tried to hold on to hope, love, joy, passion, and appreciation for my marriage and life without children yet.

Don't give up hope! Continue to pray and seek support from women in your life who understand the difficulties of TTC. Good luck to all!

45 and naturally pregnant

Hi all, I wanted to share my story to give hope to other ladies in similar situations. I am 45 years old with history of hypothyroidism. My first child was conceived after 6 years of trying; I needed ovulation drugs and had a miscarriage (and D&C) before she was conceived via IUI. Since then, we left it at the hand of "higher powers" (I was sick of the whole rigmarole of taking drugs, dozens of visits to doctors and having to put my life on hold) but nothing happened for 6 years, although I would have dearly loved a sibling for my girl. I was aware of the "only 1% of ladies in mid-40s" get pregnant stats.; so was actually expecting perimenopause to set in any time now...... but.... Here I am now 5.5 weeks pregnant naturally with own egg! I am shocked! I have an ObGyn visit next week and will discuss Progesterone shots. So ladies, it is possible!

45 BFP naturally!

I know the odds. I have seen the raised eyebrows. I've heard every negative that a woman my age can hear and yet just a week ago I was 7 weeks pregnant naturally. Unfortunately I lost my baby to miscarriage but my husband and I are trying again! I did want to give you symptoms and tips though... If nothing else to provide hope and baby dust.

I know when I ovulate. I mean I literally know the minute I ovulate. TMI *reader beware* but you know the CM that makes it feel like if you move ever so slightly you're going to have an orgasm all on your own? That's my fertile CM. I text my husband and said "I'm ovulating and I want to test a theory" ... The theory was literally if a woman my age could still get pregnant and 2 weeks later the answer was a big fat YES!

Exactly 12 days from my own prediction of ovulating I had light brown discharge that lasted for two days. Immediately following my boobs became unbearably sore two days after that I had a dream of a positive pregnancy test. I was skeptical so I continued to believe that I was maybe menopausal. The symptoms kept stacking up on me. I started craving maruchen ramen with sciracha hot coconut oil on it and peanut butter toast... Both things I've never eaten in my life and both tasted so wonderful I had to have them. About 5 weeks pregnant my hair stopped falling out. Every time I'm pregnant a very sure sign is that I have no hair in my brush. Weird symptom but because of the increase in blood supply your hair is less likely to fall out. I was more sleepy than usual but I have to say the reason I tested was because my boobs were so tender my husband could not fully hug me.

I tested and it was instantly bright blue positive sign. My husband made a good point that maybe the test was wrong. I was uncertain so I tested again ... This time with a clear blue easy test "pregnant" ... We tested again a week after that "pregnant" ... We were both so excited. What an amazing feeling. We just got married in July 2016. He doesn't have any biological children and we became hopeful.

Knowing my thyroid would be an issue I contacted the obgyn immediately. They seemed unconcerned since I was already pregnant and wanted to wait two weeks. I insisted that I was high risk because I have hypothyroidism. They insisted that I was already pregnant and didn't need to see me for two weeks. They called me back and meet me in the middle for 5 days later. I knew when my boobs stopped hurting that I was out. I knew I was out when I went for my ultra sound. They could only see a gestational sac measuring 5 weeks 3 days. I was devastated but everyone else was hopeful and told me I must have my ovulation date mixed up. No one would listen to me. They blood tested me and I was told my HCG looked good for how far along they thought I was and the sac was attached, no bleeding and in perfect shape. The nurse told me my thyroid was elevated and upped my dose of thyroid medication. Now I was hopeful. Two days later I had what felt like labor pains at work. I ended up in the ER that day and was notified after a blood test that I was having a miscarriage.. :( at the time I miscarried my thyroid was 7.3 when in the first trimester they like it to stay around 2.5 ... I'm convinced my thyroid put an end to my pregnancy progression.

The good news is we are trying again and seeking the advice of a fertility specialist.. the good news is I got pregnant naturally twice in my 40's. One at 43 (miscarriage :( ) and again at 45. So it's possible. I also exercise (walk) and take prenatal vitamins and quit caffeine to make sure my next baby has the very best chance of survival.

I read this in my quest to find answers:

"50% of miscarriages are chromosomal and 50% are an imbalance in the mother"

Ladies, your thyroid or a hormonal imbalance may be impairing your ability to maintain a pregnancy to term... Get checked often.

Also... This next time we are trying preseed :)

Baby dust and sticky beans to all!!!

BFP with one Fallopian Tube After Ectopic!

Hello everyone!
I figured since I couldn't stop reading these during my TWW I would share with you all my success after ONE month of trying with an Ovulation Predictor Kit! Plus, I didn't come across too many posts for women TTC with one Fallopian Tube.
After reading reviews on Amazon I ordered the Easy@Home OPK kit that came with 50 LH strips and 20 HCG (for only $20!, like, really?!). So, I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2013, and they removed my right Fallopian tube. For ladies with only one tube, YOU MOST CERTAINLY CAN STILL CONCEIVE!
So, my first positive ovulation test was on CD 15. Though I think I ovulated on CD 16. AND I felt the O pain from my RIGHT side/ovary. So those stories about Fallopian Tubes being able to pick up an egg that ovulated from the opposite ovary are TRUE! (Plus I asked my OB/GYN and she said yes it is true.)

Had sex CD15, 16,17 & 18.

1DPO- No symptoms
2-5 DPO- Yeast Infection accompanied by weird smelling urine that ended up going away on it's own.
6-8 DPO- No symptoms.
9 DPO- Cramping in uterus (implantation?) and sore breasts/ armpit area.
10 DPO- FAINTEST of faint lines on HCG strips. Thought I was seeing things. Boyfriend saw something too though. Tried another one that night, negative. Sore breasts/ armpits.
11 DPO- Tested again with FMU, negative. Used same urine and dipped another test, this time another VERY FAINT line appeared. Okay... now I'm confused. Couldn't wait, ran out and got a FRER, tested with mid-day/ afternoon urine and BFP! Faint, but MUCH more noticeable than on the cheaper test strips. Sore breasts/ armpits.
12 DPO- Tested with FMU on both FRER and cheaper tests. Cheap tests still VERY faint line. But the FRER came back quick! and a tad darker than 11DPO!

Symptoms I did NOT have:
Spotting
Dizziness
Metal taste in mouth

Wishing you all the best of luck and sprinkling baby dust to you all!!
I highly recommend an OPK kit, simply because timing is everything.

*~BFP on 11dpo with Wondfo, symptoms match up with AF exactly ~*

Hello everyone~

I've been TTC for 11 months. Next month we would have been going in for fertility tests if we didn't conceive this month.

Surprisingly, although I've tracked symptoms this last month more than any month before, this was the most normal and symptom-free month. I was pretty confident that I was out this month and I was fine with that. The *only* differences were that I got headrush several times after Ovulation. Also, I did feel more exhausted 5dpo - 9dpo than usual, but I was away from home for a week with coworkers, and I blamed the exhaustion on working for long amounts of time and being around so many people for so long.

Other months I've sworn 50 times I was pregnant when I wasn't, had the most pregnant symptoms ever and even convinced myself I was pregnant even after getting AF. It was all worse because my cycles are wildly irregular, and I felt like every month I was getting a new "pregnancy" symptom that I hadn't had before.

The only change this month in TTC was that I was using Wondfo OPKs to pinpoint Ovulation. I've previously tracked my CM, which also has helped. I also had a bunch of cheap Wondfo HPTs that I got with the OPKs. If it weren't for those cheap Wondfos, I probably would have still not known that I was pregnant (bc I don't like to spend money on expensive drug store HPTs especially if I think I'm out).

Here are symptoms by day:
CD17: creamy CM, dry rubbery CM at night, <1 min of aching on the r. side of my chest, Wondfo OPK: negative
CD 18: OPK positive, ewcm, BD!
CD19 (Ovulation Day): OPK still positive, ewcm, acid reflux, headrush, really high sex drive (this is why I think it was O day), BD!
1DPO: OPK still positive, woke up often at night, ewcm, BD!
2DPO: OPK negative, not much cm
3DPO: not much creamy cm
4DPO: not much cm throughout the day, but had one moment of a LOT of cm at once
5DPO: started off with high energy, end of day EXHAUSTED! small amount of creamy cm and headrush
6DPO: high energy, little bit of creamy cm
7DPO: dry cm except for a LOT of creamy cm at one moment, headrush, extremely exhausted (I blamed this on being on a work retreat for the last week--I'm usually not around so many people 24/7 for an entire week), did not want to be intimate bc tired
8DPO: dry cm except for a LOT of creamy cm at one moment, EXHAUSTED, cried (with happiness) when S-I-L told me she's preggo. Lol, I had no idea that I was too :P
9DPO: small amount of creamy cm, exhausted, took my first hpt and had BFN. wasn't expecting anything this cycle bc I felt very normal.
10DPO: feeling PMS-y, warned my DH that AF is coming, tender breasts (this is all normal for AF), bfn
11DPO: that morning, I had a dream that I got two very dark BFPs. I tested in the morning with Wondfo and had two faint positives, but I started distrusting Wondfo's, but was obsessing and researching it all day. no cm at all, totally normal to dry up before AF. high energy, breasts were aching. The only difference with breast achiness is that sometimes they were getting this poky feeling from the inside in an for a couple seconds, maybe 1-2 times a day. The areas of the pokiness changed every time. Nipples totally didn't hurt and still don't.
12DPO: Got BFP on Clearblue and FRER, and on two Wondfos!!! I would have never believed it if I didn't have the cheap tests to begin with, because I still feel so normal. Started getting AF like cramps. Told my DH and both in disbelief.
13DPO (today): AF like cramps. They are on and off throughout the day, just like before AF. It sometimes comes on when stretching awkwardly, just like with AF. So there's no difference. Still getting the occasional breast pokiness in certain areas.

Besides that, no other symptoms at all. No food aversions, no smell sensitivities, no nipple darkening, no itchiness, no burpiness/gassiness, no irritability... it's hard to believe that I have someone in there!
