Well I've been addicted to this site for a while now and promised I would contribute if my time ever came! I'm 27 and DH is 33. We have had 2 MCs about a year ago but I just got several BFPs yesterday and today (didn't believe the 1st one so went out and bought other brands - all positive! Lol I'm neurotic) so maybe this time he or she will stick!!!!
Charting, temping and such stressed me out so I just took $ tree OPKs a few days in the middle of my cycle this month. Truthfully I didn't even think it could've happened because we only BD without protection ONE TIME in my "fertile window" (then used protection other 4 days) but I guess it only takes once! Ack!!! The day that did it was two full days before I got a positive OPK.
Okkk here goes - it's long!! Hope this can entertain you girls while in the TWW!!! Baby dust and prayers for you all!!
Sorry for TMI in advance!!
1dpo - noticed some red spotting on underwear in am. Had very bad O days cramps the day before.
2dpo - a bit of creamy watery cm
3dpo - a bit of creamy watery cm, much more notably tired
3dpo - 6dpo - had the worst yeast infection (sorry TMI gross I know!) which I haven't had in years!! Ate tons of yogurt (ugh) and it eventually went away
4dpo - headache in am. cm lessens, still a bit tired, this was the day the crazy dreams started! I always have intense dreams but from 4dpo until now the dreams are so vivid and clear and I can't even shake the feelings the next day. MUST HAVE vegetarian sub! I'm not the biggest eater but this TWW I knew EXACTLY what I wanted and would drop everything to get it!
4dpo-7dpo - driest lips ever! Cracking and scratchy!
5dpo - headache in am. woke up starving with. No cm at all. Almost unnoticeable cramps, like AF is about to start but much less uncomfortable. Heavy feeling in uterus. Area from my hips to knees, - inner and outer thighs - felt sore and tired, like after a workout which was odd. Lethargic all day but in great spirits!!
6dpo - headache in am. no cm. This was the day symptoms really kicked in. Thirsty! Brown spotting in am, brown spotting mixed with red in afternoon and a decent amount of brown spotting at night. Thought it was AF showing up early but when i looked at the calendar it seemed much too soon - could it be from implantation? My skin looked flawless! Nipples started to burn and itch, specifically the right one. Breasts weren't tender even though I kept poking them to check lol. My lower back started to hurt today. TMI -but had frequent and loose bms all day when usually this time of my cycle I barely go at all. Had very mild waves of nausea. Moment of stupidity, tested with FRER = BFN (duh)
7dpo - No cm. thirsty today. nipples are on FIRE! Breasts definitely are not sore but nipples just feel hot! With my MCs I remember my nipples feeling prickly and painful but this time around they just feel like they have been burnt in the tanning bed lol idk how else to describe it! Skin is clear and glowy! Nauseous especially in evening. DH had tortilla chips and offered me one and I literally gagged from the smell (I'm not usually that dramatic lol). Started getting a weird anxious feeling all throughout the day. Kept checking my todo lists: bills paid, dogs fed, friends and family phoned, work completed--everything was normal and great but just felt as if something was off... Moment of weakness - tested with FRER = bfn
8dpo - no cm. nipples still crazy irritated and breasts are slightly sore. Skin still good! Woke up with that anxious feeling again and it stuck around all day. picked up some dollar tree tests and while there (lol I'm going to sound like a nut!!) I was wandering the candy aisle and saw this green "jumbo gummy worm" that was sooo realistic looking and gross I felt myself becoming sick in my throat. Nausea from looking at a piece of children's candy???? I knew something was up for sure! took a $ tree test and after an hour the slightest shadow of a line came up. Figured it was evap. Thirsty and really wanted a beer which is odd because I don't really like it... Tasted amazing! (oh well!) Couldn't stomach the thought of my favorite wine though!
9 dpo - tiniest bit of clumpy cm. thirsty! No nausea in am. Anxious feeling again! Low back sore, thighs tender again, nips still bothering me, breasts slightly painful. Skin is great. Very dark urine. take a $tree and again with the long awaited shadow line. Head to target and pick up some FRER in afternoon (6 day sooner ones) and bam! BFP in a minute!! It's faint but oh it is there!!! Took a few more of different brands - all ++++!!!
10dpo -headache. Brownish cm. wake up feeling hungover. MUST HAVE cereal!! On the 2nd bowl as I sit here typing :-) two BFPs this am! Hope this bean sticks!!!
