DH & I are both 30, no prior children or specifically known fertility issues. Had reached the point where I was sure something was wrong with me and had started the pre infertility appt. blood work. I'd been using the Ovia Fertility app to track everything.
Like everyone else, I stalked this site every month so I'll mirror the posts that I found to be most helpful.
Things we did differently this month: used Preseed!!! I'm convinced it's what finally got us our positive. I took notes bc I'd read so many stories of people getting pregnant after their first try with Preseed.
I've never charted and this is our 2nd month using OPK. My normal cycle is 30 days, but recently it's been acting up because I have functional cysts (discovered 3 months ago).
BD'd on CDs 12, 14, 16, 17. Main things I noticed were fatigue. oily skin, stuffiness, super sore nipples (sheets brushing against them hurt), and it always felt like water(?) was draining from vaginal area. There was no spotting and I didn't feel any nausea (even now at 5 weeks).
CD 1-5 period
CD 6 spotting
CD 8 right pelvic pain (this is the side my last cyst was found on)
CD 9 school glue type CM
CD 10 gas/bloating (normal for me)
CD 11 gas/bloating, felt left pelvic pain, negative OPK
CD 12 bloating, right pelvic pain, tingling nipples
CD 13 cramps, negative OPK
CD 14 constipation, bloating, negative OPK
CD 15 EWCM, cramps, gas, negative OPK
CD 16 EWCM, bloating, gas, right pelvic pain, positive OPK. *From notes: Convinced today is the day I ovulated bc I felt the Mittelschmerz on the right side. This is going to be the month, I can feel it!
DPO 1 watery CM, right pelvic pain, positive OPK
DPO 2 watery CM, backaches, cramps bloating, positive OPK. *From notes: I seem to be having a very long LH surge, but today's line is darker than the others. The internet says this could be a sign of infertility :( or just having high LH levels. I could also be catching the surge on its way down. Idk what to think. I'm almost 100% sure I ovulated the day before yesterday when I felt the pain on my right side. In the evening, felt sharp, fleeting pain on right side. When using the restroom, feels like EWCM when wiping but nothing visible in panties. Had blood draw for Progesterone today.
DPO 3 EWCM, possibly positive OPK. *Itchiness and drainage in back of throat. Sensitive/swollen clitoris. Line on OPK not as dark as the one day before yesterday, but is as dark as the reference line, just not as thick. This LH surge is really long and it's making me nervous.
DPO 4 gas, acne, lower pelvic pain, fatigue, School glue type CM. *Still have itchiness in the back of my throat and am now coughing and have a stuffy nose, too.
DPO 5 acne, fatigue, cramps
DPO 6 watery CM, fatigue, pelvic pain, stuffy nose
DPO 7 watery CM, acne, nipple soreness
DPO 8-9 school glue CM, nipple soreness
DPO 10 school glue CM, cramps, headache, fatigue, nipple soreness, nausea, gas, acne, bloating. *Still stuffy, weird green poop.
DPO 11 watery CM, tender breasts, bloating, fatigue, nipple soreness
DPO 12 school glue CM, tender breasts, nipple soreness, gas
DPO 13 same, plus pain radiated on right side
DPO 14 same
DPO 15 same, got BFP! I refused to test until my period was due bc I didn't want to pick up any false/chemical pregnancies. Went to doc for blood test confirmation. EDD 3/13/15
We're super excited and can't wait for our first appointment. Praying for a sticky bean. Baby dust to
everyone else TTC!
