Because of his travel schedule, DH and I decided to officially try for the first time in May, but we got an early surprise this Mother's Day! Hubbie got back from a boy's trip on 4/29, just after 1am, the day I O'd. Luckily (?) I was so sick from an Oyster & Craft Beer (my last of both for awhile!) Festival that I ended up working from home. We BD'd twice.
Ovulation was CD12-13, and we BD'd on Day 12.
1-6 DPO I was queasy- I thought it was the residual effects of the Oysters and Craft beer at first, but it kept going.
During this time I also experienced no appetite off and on.
7-14 DPO I started feeling extremely gassy. I also experienced off and on dry mouth and twinges on my lower right side.
Days 10 & 11 I lost it- had two emotional break downs. One because DH planned a business trip during the time we were suposed to "try for the first time" and the other because of something silly. I was so irrationally upset (vs. a normal annoyance).
Days 11-13 Vivid Dreams.
Mother's Day, 13 dpo-- Fatigue, tender bb's, frequent urination, random acne and a BFP! It was really faint on my FRER on Sunday AM so I bought a digi Test. I couldn't hold my bladder long enough so I tested this AM. A BFP in black & white!!
Right after my O I started tracking temps just to have a baseline and get an idea what to expect when I did it for the full cycle. Temps Post O were up and down. A steady 97.5 for three days then up and down between 97.7's and 97.9's. Today I hit 98.11!
We couldn't ask for a better time to receive some good news and can't wait till July (on DH's birthday) to share with our families!!!
Me: 28, BC since 21 (stopped January, cycle normalized pretty quickly)
