The 'only' changes I made this month were starting acupuncture and chinese herbs. I also gave up coffee and alcohol altogether and ate a healthy diet:
Check these symptoms out - got my BFP 12 DPO! BFN 10 DPO
1-3DPO: Creamy cm (thought I mis-timed O!) have been charting cycles last 6 months. I'm def a regular/avg 28 day cycle so hoping conceiving straight forward, but have ttc 3 months with no luck. The only change this cycle is that I had acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Flatulence
4DPO creamy cm, weird ache in upper chest above breasts in am while driving, wave of nausea while making kids banana bread, no sore breasts etc, def tired... had nap during day (very unusual for me I usually don't stop), hungry! Bloated! Flatulence
5DPO creamy cm continuing, tingly feeling in fingers/hands going to sleep, (maybe its iphone over-use from reading too many ttc forum ha!) def more tired, hungry! Bloated!
6DPO slightly nauseous after breakfast, sensitive gums (zapping), creamy cm, bfn... I know too early, prob haven't even implanted yet! I really should no better! On the early preg forums some women getting faint line bfp at 6dpo so I thought... what the heck!? Ev pg different. Hunger has subsided somewhat, no symptoms today thinking nothing happening & preparing for AF, but have a 'feeling' this month ttc is different from others!!
However, was convinced pg before & had 'many' symptoms - stumped me... so now just going with the flow 2ww... not charting temps etc as yet. Will test when pg due in 7 days... slight cramping right side might be implantation! Larger appetite, still bloated! Flatulence
7DPO sharp shooting pain left boob, cramping right side ovary, creamy cm, no sore nipples etc or any other symptoms. Hips/legs/back achey while walking. Joints feel soft. No major flatulence thank goodness has lessened
8DPO creamy cm, cramping gone, slight lower back pain/twinge while walking, tired, sore pain/twinge deep top right breast (right chest), strong smelling urine, woke temp up - feel hot, pain behind belly button
9DPO creamy cm, no other symptoms, bfn tested morning & night, vivid dreams, hot
10DPO creamy cm, constipation, cramping back right ovary, twinge pain deep left breast at bottom, bloated, strong smelling urine, hungry, insomnia
11DPO all symptoms completely gone, no pms either ? Feel great! Insomnia :( doc said level 7 HcG on blood test. Too low to be certain. But "hopeful".
12DPO BFP! Clear blue digital reads 'pregnant 1-2' yaaaaaaay!!!
I'm 34 years old and ttc #3 baby - second marriage. 1 x miscarriage last year and now trying again. My children first marriage now aged 11 and 7. I have a daughter and son.
I conceived in my 20s and was 'easy'. 30s a different ball game! Chinese herbalist said ttc is easy during 30s if you get the environment right/corrected in the uterus and follicles working well to release egg from ovaries, and uterine wall strong. My friend put me onto acupuncture and herbs after she had 2 x miscarriages & lost a baby boy at 23 weeks! Was devastating. Had funeral etc for him. Now she has a healthy gorgeous baby boy after carrying him full term and is continuing the Chinese herbs for breast feeding. Happy ending!! She also has two older children and said this pregnancy & breast feeding a 'breeze' compared to other two and credits it to acupuncture & herbs. Her gorgeous blue eyed blonde haired baby boy is so healthy, settled and has slept through the night from early on. No digestive upsets etc for him or her & she has a great milk supply. He is thriving.
Got my BFP 12DPO! BFN 10DPO yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!
(PS… I'm, due 18 May 2013. NOTE: The 'only' changes I made this month were starting acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I also gave up coffee and alcohol altogether and ate a healthy diet).
