I stalked this website and many others for several months trying to get a BFP. Trying everything possible naturally to get pregnant as quickly as possible. I had been trying for a year with my fi. He is 44 and I am 22. I initially thought he was the problem. I got checked and was totally healthy. I have regular cycles and ovulate monthly, while he on the other hand refused to get his SA checked until recently. His ego obviously. We compromised and said if we didn't get pregnant this cycle he is getting checked.
I had been taking herbal supplements like vitex, soy isoflavone, royal jelly, conceive easy, maca, ect on and off for the last nine months. This month I stopped all the supplements and just ate healthy. I'm an on/off vegan too by the way, but I occasionally eat seafood when I want.
I also used preseed and instead cups religiously from cd 11 to cd 21 in case I missed the Lh surge. I did a handstand against the wall in the morning and at night from cd 11 to cd 22 (I know silly, but desperate at this point). I have a 29 day cycle. I ovulated late this cycle on cd 19 instead of the usual cd14/15. I also ate sunflower seeds and pineapple core from 1dpo to 6dpo to help implantation.
This morning with fmu, I got my BFP at 10dpo on an ic. My fi and I are overjoyed. His swimmers just needed a little push from gravity, preseed, and instead cups. Thanks ladies for all of your insight and funny comments that kept me sane during ttc this past year.
Here are my symptoms ladies:
O day: woke up very hot, sinus pressure, stuffy nose, ears popping, bad nightmares, and just generally felt really wet down below, ovulation pain
1dpo: increased sex drive, irritable, increased appetite after recently not being in the mood to eat, high energy
2dpo: symptoms from day before continue but moodier. Feel really out of it. Sad, don't want to interact with fi or anyone. Took a walk and I guess my sadness was so obvious a random Korean man hugged and kissed me on the cheek to cheer me up lol...fi didn't like that.
3dpo: gassy and sense of sense sharpened
4dpo: nauseous and strong sense of smell. I went off on my fi. Gave him a verbal tongue lashing via text. I usually give him the benefit of the doubt, especially since he's stressed out from work, but I gave him a new pair...it was really bad.
5dpo: more weird dreams
6dpo: wake up really hot. And I'm still super hungry and gassy. Fi noted weight gain from last week :/.
7dpo: serious libido...like cavemen lol or rabbit like. I had a drop in temp today looked like an implantation dip. Fingers crossed
8dpo: irritable and in a bad mood again. Totally want to unleash on my poor fi, but I keep it to myself.
9dpo: more detailed weird dreams still really hot like 99.4. I have the chills too now. Trying not to test even though my temps are elevated still.
10dpo (today): tested with fmu and I got my First BFP... Faint but visible. Af due tomorrow. My FI is all proud of himself lol. I'm very happy to finally be able to include my own tww story :D. Baby dust to all of u ladies still ttc and or in their own tww.
