This site and the many stories and experiences helped me to get through this period of TTC. It took nine months and I was about to give up when out of nowhere I was blessed with my first BFP yesterday. I cannot believe it. Here were my symptoms before and after the BFP. I'm only praying that this is a happy and healthy nine months from here on. All the best to all you mothers and mothers to be!
CD7 - BD
CD 9 - BD
CD 10 - Positive OPK but did not BD.
CD 11 - I felt ovulation pain and knew I was ovulating. BD.
1DPO - BD.
2 DPO - BD.
3 DPO - Sore breasts. But this was not out of the ordinary as I have sore breasts right after ovulation occurs.
4 - 11 DPO - Other than sore breasts, I did not feel any symptoms of either PMS or pregnancy. My breasts were very sore but not unusually sore.
12 DPO - spotting began with very very very slight AF cramps. I thought AF had arrived but noticed the cramping was next to nothing. My breasts were still sore, which I though was weird because the soreness usually eases shortly before my period arrives.
13 DPO - spotting stopped but I began to have more PMS like cramping- but a little less than what I usually feel at the beginning of my period. I thought AF would continue anytime.
14 DPO - Still no more spotting, no cum, and no period but I was still having very slight PMS cramping and sore breasts. I was sure my AF would arrive any minute. I told my sister about the weird spotting and she suggested I get a test. I bought an equate pregnancy test; and an almost immediate plus sign appeared! I couldn't believe it. I asked my husband if he was seeing what I was seeing. He couldn't believe his eyes either, he insisted I test again. I ran out of the house and got a clear blue digital test. The test showed "Pregnant." It is funny that the symptoms started to get more intense after I got the positive. My breasts became very sore, more than usual and I was having more intense cramping, but the cramping was not constant.
15 DPO - Intermittent cramps and unusually sore breasts. Still BFP!
All the best to all of you and be patient, relax, it will happen!
