So wow, this it what it feels like! Here's some info on me:
Married since April 2012
TTC for 5 mos
BFP May 14th, 2013 at 3am
This will be our first pregnancy!
So I'm still in shock! I loved reading these posts while trying so hopefully I help some of you ttc-ers. This is actually my first month since ttc that I didn't temp and believe it or not, I had given up.
I thought something was wrong with me and actually broke down a couple of days ago because I thougt AF was raring her ugly head, but it turns out that was IB! I kind of had a feeling that I was preggers for a few days but want to wait until after a missed period to test because I couldn't stomach another BFN (you know just in case). I even went out and bought tampons - just in case! Well I didn't need them! Here are my symptoms:
So I o'd around the end of April (which funnily is my anniversary!)
1-6 dpo Nothing. Just typical symptoms of ovulation - increased cm, fatigue, slightly sore Bb's like barely even noticeable.
7-10 dpo - Felt kind of fluish, tired, sneezing, coughing, needed medicine and lots of it. Couldn't sleep and had really weird vivid dreams about my cousin's daughter who is four months talking to me, weird right? At 10 dpo I checked with and expired HPT and got a BFN
11dpo - Cramps started in am. Pretty strong throughout the day. Thought Af soon here. But now I don't feel bad about the two beers I'm having right now ;) had a stressful day and almost passed out how tired I was!
12-13 dpo - No cramps or other symptoms.. Very very bloated. Nausea, all day. Very Annoying.
14 dpo - Wet feeling with slight nausea and mild headache. Could be from the strong air freshener scent at my office I thought. A little crampy and constipated. Hoping hard af stays away. Start getting the feeling that maybe I could be, but wait, I'm not sure. I'll wait a while before testing, couldn't bare another BFN. Massive headache at night.I was miserable.
15 dpo - AF is supposed to arrive. Light cramps and two pink spots when i wiped in the bathroom. Put a wad of tissue down there, got just a tiny bit of brown discharge and went out to buy tampons. Wore one all day, so when I went to change it later I was surprised that there was no blood. Nothing! Cramps got worse at night. I'm officially one day late.
Called DH (I'm visiting my mom for mothers day) and told him I'm late and he says "oh you've been late before, let's wait a while before testing" I say ok!
16dpo - No AF yet, will test tonight. Told DH he's excited but wants me to wait until tomorrow to test. Guess he just wants to be sure.
Cramps, sleepy, nauseous and Bb's feel tight. Took temp and it was high, like it normally is pre O.
Aaaaannnnnddddd later that night!
BFP!!! Holy sh!t I can't believe I'm gonna be a mom! Tested 3am two pink lines immediately! Ahhhhhh! Am I happy or scared?!?! Both!
Called DH ten times (he was deep in sleep). He finally answers after 8 crazy minutes and I tell him to check his phone. I sent a pic of the BFP HPT. He didn't even know that two lines meant pregnant! Lol! He's so happy and will book our first appointment with the doctor in the am! I'm so excited, hoping for a happy and healthy 9 months :)
Good luck to all of you ttc. It only took five months for us, but during that time I was very frustrated. So mad props to all of you soon to be moms who keep pushing. GL!
