No known issues
We've been TTC since Jan so this was our third cycle. I was really in complete shock that it worked this time as I really had very little symptoms, as opposed to the last month when I swear I had every symptom under the sun (nausea, constipation, extreme hunger, pulling sensation down there). But nope, wasn't preggers. I do think something was trying to happen due to the pulling/pressure feeling about a week after ovulation (a feeling I've never experienced before). This month I actually said to DH multiple times that I didn't that this was our month. Boy was I wrong!
Anyway, back to this cycle that worked. We used OPK and timed BD every month but this was the first month we tried Pre-Seed. I never had any CM issue but thought it couldn't hurt! I also have been seeing an acupuncturist for the past year due to migraines and the last few months she's been adding in some fertility treatments as well as giving me herbs to take.
My cycle is between 25 and 32 days and my luteal phase is between 12 and 14 days.
CD12 - negative OPK, EWCM, tightness in uterus - BD w/ Preseed
CD13 - positive OPK, lots of EWCM, dull pain right side on/off - BD w/ Preseed
CD14 / O day - another positive OPK in AM, cramps - BD w/ Preseed
O day / 1 DPO - EWCM, slight cramps, tightness on/off
1-2 DPO - tightness, EWCM, went on vacation
2-3 DPO - mild cramps, tightness at night
3-4 DPO - nothing noticeable, vivid dream
4-5 DPO - slight tightness/cramps, another vivid dream, very emotional (burst into tears when fighting with family member, very rare for me)
5-6 DPO - very light cramps
6-7 DPO - vivid dream again
7-8 DPO - cramps light in morning then again at night with tightness, vivid dream yet again!
8-9 DPO - light cramps at night, test with IC at night when returned from vacation and thought that MAYBE I saw quite possibly the faintest line on the planet. Thought I was probably just being crazy and ignored.
9-10 DPO - gas, test with IC again in AM and again MAYBE saw the most ridiculous faintest line ever - ignored again, weird slight pain on left side of uterus in afternoon for about 15 seconds, tightness at night again, tested again at night and was sure I saw a faint line this time on IC pulled out a CB and it said PREGNANT!!!!! very thirsty in middle of night with cramps, barely slept!
10-11 DPO - BFP again in morning on both CB and IC (line still faint but slightly darker)
11/12 - 13/14 DPO - AF like cramps all that weekend, test again each day and kept getting BFPs! wohoo!
13/14 - 17/18 DPO - cramps slow down but are replaced by very light brown spotting, get worried and call doctor, go in for beta testing, went very well and more than doubled in 48 hours! they said it's just old blood making it's way out and not to worry.
last couple of days / today (4w4d) - spotting now gone and only symptoms are extreme thirst, light cramps, more hungry, and sleepiness yet insomnia
Praying for a sticking bean! GOOD LUCK to everyone!!!
