Hello to all of you wonderful, and inspirational, women on that long and, sometimes, painful journey we call Trying to Conceive. I am 26 years old, and DH is 29 and we have been married for 3 years now. We have been ttc for 9 very long months, and suffered a loss in May. I always visit this site to read the very inspirational bfp stories to help me keep my faith that my day was coming, so I knew I was going to share mine to help as many women out as I could. So... Here goes!
I have very irregular cycles ranging from 35 to 60 days, and as you can imagine that makes ttc and pinpointing ovulation VERY difficult. I have been taking prenatal vitamins since we started ttc in November and tried using the opk kits a few times in the beginning with no luck. I would run out of them before I could actually get a positive one then I was buying more and I just decided that was a waste of money and time. Then I tried using the cm method of figuring out ovulation, that was horrible! Apparently I tend to have ew cm for a full WEEK! We we doing the bd every time we turned around! And let's be honest ladies... After a few months of ttc, bding becomes very mechanical and feels more of a must than a get to lol. Anyways, in early May we suffered a loss. I was probably between 6-7 weeks when I miscarried. It hurt a lot so we took a month off and let my body and soul recover before trying again in June. This was the first time I ever had used a chart for symptoms and bbt. It was my first time using the bbt method too and it worked REALLY well to figure out when I ovulated.

This time I felt different, I FELT pregnant. I knew there would be 2 lines, and I had faith that it would happen when it was meant to happen.
I wish all of you ladies much baby dust and hope for a BFP in your futures!!!
