BFP after 3-4 months!!! What I Did...TTC#1

Hi all, I always said to myself that when I get my first BFP, I would make sure to post my story on TWW. I had been a long time lurker during the past year and reading everyone's posts made me feel less stressed(well, maybe at times I made myself more stressed because I kept comparing myself to others and drove myself crazy)! Anyhow, I got my first BFP yesterday morning. I used the easy@home test strips from Amazon that come in a 50 pack of OPKs and 20 HPTs. My cycles were irregular(I would skip 2 months or they would range between 30day-40day cycles) when I was younger, but now my cycles would be 40-45 days. I have never been on BC either, no IUD or meds or anything at all. My husband and I were praying to get pregnant last year, but our timing was off and I was not precise on catching my ovulation day. Up until January 2018, I really made it a point to try everything I could to increase our chances. January, Feb and March came and went by and still no BFP. My luteal phase is 14-15 days. DH and I are 29. Here is what I did differently this time around: 1) Really make it a point to be precise and take BBT at the same time every morning and in the same location (right pocket under my tongue)/position. (My previous cycles I would wake up earlier or later than my target time and it screwed everything up) 2) I started WORKING OUT. Ladies, I really think this helped me tremendously. Previous to this cycle, I had not gone to the gym for like a year!!! For 4 weeks once my period was over, I went to the gym 3-4x/week. I did cardio for 30mins on the treadmill or elliptical and then did free weights and lifted. 3) EAT RIGHT or EAT SMARTER. Again, before this cycle I ate like crap. I ate anything and everything I wanted, you name it. After my workouts I would make a protein smoothie. This really helped me and motivated me, it was a good routine. 4) CHIA SEED AND MACA POWDER. I ate chia almost every other day and added this to my salads, eggs, and smoothies. I added the maca powder to my smoothies as well, even gave some to my hubby--couldn't even taste it! I used the Navitas brand of Maca Powder--just a teaspoon of it and you're set. It it said to help with fertility and balance hormones. My go to smoothies recipe: Choc almond milk, frozen berries like blackberries/strawberries/blueberries, banana, cup of spinach leaves, the chia and maca. 5) DITCHED THE PRESEED. I know for some, Preseed is what helped them conceive, but for my hubby and I we decided not to use it this time around. We used it in January/Feb/March and we do not think it worked for us. So this time we did not use anything. 6) BD every other day to every 3 days. This worked for us. For example, this cycle we BD'd CD24, 26, 28, 30, 34 and 35. My peak LH surge/positive OPK was on CD33. 7) Doggystyle! (TMI!!!) Previous months he would finish with me on my back, this time with me on all fours lol. Nuff said. And yes, I had my legs straight up afterwards, and a folded pillow under my pelvis for 10-15 mins. Forgot to mention we went on a vacation a week after my period ended; after our vacation that was when I started working out and eating right! I am sure vacation took my mind off the stress of TTC! I even had sangria!!! 8) PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. If you have faith in God and believe in Him, He will bless you richly. Pray without ceasing. I always thought that it would take more than a year to conceive and I always cried everytime a BFN showed and thought something was wrong. This time around I just Let Go and Let God. Trust in Him. Phew!!! Here were my symptoms: 1DPO- Nips hurt terribly (this was normal and expected for me every cycle the day after ovulation) 2DPO- Nips still hurt. Food craving for salty food like Shake Shack (normal PMS symptom that I usually get) 3DPO- Nothing unusual 4DPO- Food craving for chocolate pretzels from TJs, craved pizza and Panera (OMG I'm disgusting LOL) 5DPO- Felt a sharp pain in my lower right area at night when I stretched OUCH!! 6DPO- ABSOLUTELY NO NIP SORENESS (this completely caught my attention, because my nips usually feel sore for the duration of 1 week or more before my period comes) Dry CM like a desert lol. Craved salty junk food AGAIN -_- 7DPO- HAD ZERO symptoms. Again, no nip soreness, NO SORE OR SWOLLEN BBS at all(usually my bbs get swollen before my period for 1-2 weeks) 8DPO- Felt absolutely NORMAL in terms of bbs. CM was a tiny bit creamy/sticky. Took a 2-hour long nap on my couch- I get out of work at 3pm, fell asleep around 5pm and woke up at 7:40pm! 9DPO- Took a nap AGAIN for 1.5-2 hours. Took a huge, long pee after my nap WTF. After that, I noticed immediate bloating in my tummy, the area around my belly button felt so soft and squishy and bloaty! Literally felt like I gained 10lbs after my nap. 10DPO- Nothing unusual. 11DPO- Craved salty food like my usual PMS symptoms. I ate samosas from Whole Foods and an everything bagel with cream cheese and chives! WHAT?! I also had 2 BMs, odd.

BFP with IVF at 38

Hi ladies! I've read so many of these stories over the years so wanted to drop in and give hope to those who may be feeling hopeless. I had my first round of IVF when I was 36 - after trying everything else for years. I was a poor responder and ended up with just one blastocyst... and she stuck! My only symptoms with her were sharp cramps and light spotting 3 days after a 5 day transfer. And she is my now one year old daughter! I've just undergone my second round of IVF (age 38), transferred one blastocyst and got my BFP! It feels like a miracle because I didn't have the same symptoms as my first round. In fact I had no real symptoms other than a low level 'period type' feeling 3-4 days after my 5-day transfer. I had a stuffy nose and really bad diarrhoea on days 3,4,5,6 after transfer and just felt incredibly sad. My beta is on Friday and I'm hoping for great results! We prayed very hard all through our journey and feel extremely blessed that God has answered our prayers in this way. For info, we had severe male factor infertility and high FSH, lowish AMH for me.

Finally!!!! Bfp 2nd round of clomid 50 mg!!!

Hey, I'm 25 (as of two days ago) ....This is my first pregnancy. We actively tried for 8 months Before clomid. I had low hopes bc my period is extremely irregular! So I got blood work done , the culprit was high testosterone which had been preventing me from ovulating ! My doctor scheduled a D&C to clean out all the linings of cycles past bc she wanted me to have "a spring cleaning " before clomid.!! The first round was difficult for me & ovulation was EXTREMELY painful afterwards I had every symptom I could find on the internet and just "knew" I was pregnant! I was crushed when af came . Second round was much easier and laid back and I honestly assumed I had not ovulated bc besides some swelling in my ovaries I never felt the pain i felt the cycle before. My first cycle day 21 prog test was 22.6 the second round it was only 5 & I cried when I got the news bc I knew that meant i didn't ovulate and this month was a bust!!! Few days later I started getting all the usual symptoms of pms except the cramps and bloating would come and go rather than straight into full gear per usual and instead of just my nipples being sore like normal my breast were extremely sore on the sides too . I slept for an entire day as well but I had completely ruled pregnancy out and assumed the weird pms was due to the clomid or either anovulation .My doctor upped my dose to 100 mg and I was going to start my next round without af bc I thought she wasnt going to show due to me allegedly not ovulating that month! When my period was four days late I decided I would take one last test b4 I started the pills bc i got bfn the day of and day after my missed period .......i got a bfp !!!! Then another one the next day bc I couldn't believe it !! God is so good bc i was extremely discouraged and on the brink of just giving up ttc all together for awhile. The only thing I did different this month was use 2g of preseed instead of 1g even though he didn't like it! And i also took mucinex extra strength pill during my fertile window and prayed extremely hard bc at the end of the day regardless of how hard we try and what all we do to get a bfp God has the final say.i genuinely believe he heard my sincere, humble cry and blessed me thanks for reading.......!!!! read psalm 113 when you build a genuine relationship with God he will grant you the desires of your heart !

Failed IVFs, DOR, High Prolactin, Microadenoma, Uterine Septum, Failing Ovary, told I needed an egg donor, natural pregnancy

Hi everyone! I never thought I would be posting here! I used to read these stories for inspiration. I hope that this can also serve to help someone else on their TTC journey. I was TTC for over 4 years and I just got my first ever BFP this week! My story: After 2 years of TTC we decided to see a specialist. It turned out I had high prolactin levels caused by a benign pituitary tumor (microadenoma). After I had an MRI, they gave me Dostinex which worked effectively and lowered my prolactin levels. I figured once they levels were low I would get pregnant. I was wrong. Another year went by and nothing. We decided to see a gynecologist who did tier 1 infertility treatments and I took Clomid (that made me crazy!). Clomid also did not work for me. It was at that point we decided to see a Reproductive Endocrynologist (we had to fly to another city since there is none where I live). The RE diagnosed me with Diminished Ovarian Reserce (DOR), and said my left ovary was not functioning properly (possibly POR). Basically, my left ovary was asleep. After I did my first IVF cycle and two transfers, they both failed. After that, they did a hysterpscopy and discovered I had a small, yet significant uterine septum that they surgically cut out. They also gave me an endometrial scratch. I was pretty positive my next IVF attempt would be successful. On my 2nd cycle of IVF (3rd transfer) they did assisted hatching as well. I had 3 high-quality day 5 embryo's (which is a LOT for someone with DOR), however that cycle also failed. I was very sad following all these years of failures when the doctor told me that I needed a donor egg due to poor egg quality. I was obviously heartbroken with this news, but I eventually accepted the idea, and became excited about it. I actually decided I would try this. Before getting into the egg donation process, I read the book "It Starts with an Egg" and followed some of the book's advice by taking 600 mg coq10/day, vitamin e, folic acid, prenatals, and exercising regularly. I also ate a lot of eggs, meat, veggies, and cheese. I figured I could test my luck naturally before using an egg donor. To my surprise, this worked! Two months after my final failed IVF cycle, I got a NATURAL bfp with my OWN eggs!! I am still in shock! The week before my BFP, I had signed up for the egg donor process, too! I literally had given up on my own eggs. I also had light brown spotting for WEEKS before getting my BFP. I thought my period was just taking forever to arrive. I know that everyone is different and that infertility is a huge struggle. I hope that this story can bring some people hope :) Best of luck! <3

BFP @ 14DPO

Hi, guys! I'm 33 and my husband is 40 and I have a 25 day cycle. We've been trying to conceive our first child for about 4 months now and last week, I got my BFP, thank the Lord! :-) I was an avid reader of TWW the entire time we were TTC and wanted to share my story to encourage other women. I used OPK kits the previous months but I think they were stressing me out. It made sex feel like a mission to my husband lol instead of a joy. So this month, I decided to just follow my apps' ovulation predictions (I used Ovia and Fertility Friend). I ovulated either on 3/13 or 3/14 so we had sex on 3/10, 3/11, 3/12, 3/15, and 3/16. I really thought this wouldn't be our month since we missed O day but let this be an example of Jesus making things happen in His own time:-) I didn't feel any telltale symptoms. In fact, it felt JUST like I was going to get my period. Every month, I get intermittent tingling breasts and I got them this month too. And at 8 DPO like clock work, I got my normal af cramps gearing up. Nothing felt unusual to me until about 12 DPO, which was 2 days before my period. I usually get slight spotting, some pink when I wipe a few days before my period. But this time, I got nothing. Nothing at 13 DPO or 14 DPO. The evening my period was due, I took a test, thinking it would be negative and my period was just tardy. But I got a line! I was in such disbelief that I bought two more tests and they both were positive! As far as methods I used: -I used Preseed every time we had sex during my fertile window. I used to use it as a lubricant but the last two months, I inserted some inside and used some outside on my hubby -I cut way back on my caffeine. I used to drink a cup a day. But for the last two months, I had coffee maybe 3 days out of the month and switched to herbal teas. - I also started exercising slightly more, walking about 30 mins or so a day. I don't know if it helped but it certainly can't hurt. -I relaxed and began to really lean back and trust God. God gives good gifts and a child is one of His greatest gifts. His will and way is always better than ours so whenever I'd begin to freak out, I would be reminded that Jesus has me. I'm so grateful to God for this answered prayer and I pray for all of you trying to conceive. Keep seeking Him and trust that He indeed will answer! :-)

AFTER 3 YEARS, 3 MISCARRIAGES, 3 ROUNDS OF CLOMID... I GOT MY BFP!!

WARNING: LONG POST> I promised that I would post details of my BFP (when that day came) and now I can! I hope this post will encourage others. We tried off and on for 3 years. I charted EVERYTHING!!! So many tears and so much frustration, but I felt in my heart that it was going to happen... on God's timing, not mine (which is hard to accept sometimes). *I HATED hearing people say, "When you stop trying it will happen." How do you stop trying when it is something that you want so bad... and you kinda have to try.lol After the 2nd chemical I had the doctor run a RPL blood panel. Although they assumed everything was fine and it was "just a fluke", I knew something was off. The results came back great... but I did have a double copy of a gene mutation MTHFR! I have 3 perfect boys and NEVER knew of the problem, but my youngest is 10. I figured that maybe the gene gets worse with age and that is why it was causing issues. We waited a few months and I started taking appropriate vitamins to help with this gene mutation, extra Lmeytholfolate, and baby aspirin. Well, after 5 months we got pregnant for the 3rd time! This time the BFP was darker and I didn't bleed right after my period was due. This one seemed to be a keeper! However, at my first doctors appointment I felt like something was wrong and voiced my opinion to the doctor. She tried to reassure me that all was fine because I wasn't bleeding, or cramping, But i knew something was wrong because I had no major symptoms at all. I requested an ultrasound due to my previous losses and she agreed to ease my mind with an ultrasound (I was 8 weeks). *I know it's normal for some women to not experience major symptoms, but I know my body and it wasn't like me. We had the ultrasound the same day and there was no baby. The sac measured 6 weeks, and was diagnosed as a blighted ovum. I told the doctor that I wanted to try and let my body get rid of it on it's own because I read that it was better for future conception/ less invasive. I had to wait until I was 13 weeks for it to start on its own!! However, it did all come out on its own within a 24 hour period. (horrible experience) We were both kinda freaked by that whole experience and decided to stop trying for a while... maybe even for good. After all, we had 3 perfect boys and would just focus on them and our family. However, that ache in my heart never went away... I just felt in my heart that we were supposed to have another baby. I had to pray a lot the next few months because I felt like God placed the desire on my heart, but I was forcing it on my schedule and my timing. We took a break, but I continued to chart EVERYTHING... just incase. Why do we (women) have to be in control of everything?! lol Anyways, the miscarriage happened in March 2017. We decided to try again in July 2017. I noticed that my cycles went back to normal 29 days and that was a relief. However, WE COULD NOT GET PREGNANT AGAIN. I didn't understand because we had 3 losses within the two and a half year period and now nothing. *WE TRIED EVERY CRAZY THING: Pineapple core, socks to maintain temps, standing on my head, staying in bed after sex, no peeing after, Preseed, soft cups, food changes, Clomid, Progesterone, and sex on specific days, and so much more.... it was crazy! The doctor suggested Clomid (although I was ovulating) in order to increase our chances each month. I took it for 3 cycles with NO LUCK! My cycles did change from 29 to 31 and 33 days due to the medicine. Also, I suffered severe anxiety and depression after my last dose... IT WAS TERRIFYING!! I PROMISED TO NEVER TAKE IT AGAIN. It didn't start until the last dose was finished and almost out of my system. I had ENOUGH of EVERYTHING! I decided to completely stop in November of 2017. My husband and I couldn't take it anymore. We realized that it obviously wasn't a part of God's plan or will for us and we had to TRUST him despite our desires. After all, He blessed us with children to begin with and that was enough. The only thing left was the Ovia app on my phone and that I decided to keep just to track my periods in hopes they would return to a normal 29 day cycle. I can't tell how FREE I felt to just LET GO and STOP forcing it. We took our family vacation in February 2018 and I did happen to notice that it was scheduled during my "fertile week", but I hadn't been using OPKs anymore, so i didn't know for sure if the chart was accurate. I just shrugged it off and focused on the trip, my kids, and the memories we would make. Plus, I needed to get away after the major anxiety attack! WE HAD COMPLETELY LET GO AND THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED! I was 5 days late when we came back and I didn't want to test because... we ALL KNOW how nerve wrecking that can be. I was afraid to have my hopes up a little just to see a stark white test. I broke down and tested on March 1st (6 days late) and the test was positive before I could even set it on the counter!!

BFP after 2 1/2 years

Background story for anyone who is in a similar position: Husband and are 29, had two children twelve months apart at age 25 and 26! Each time were conceived with no problems and in less than three months. After I had my second child, I did not prevent, but was breastfeeding, even though my cycles returned at 8 weeks postpartum. Had normal cycles for a year but didn't get pregnant. Went for my yearly exam (2nd baby now 1 year old) and my dr. thought something might be wrong given the fact that we do not use birth control. Took blood work and found that I had low progesterone, and my dr. hoped I would be pregnant again within 3 months with progesterone supplementation. didn't happen. started charting and observing my cycles and realized I did indeed have low progesterone as evidence by a 10 day luteal phase. then cut out gluten and dairy, as suggested by my dr. and continued progesterone supplements. Improved to 12 day luteal cycles. after another 3 months, and continued charting, my dr. suggested possible lean PCOS and wanted to confirm ovulation. Did a follicular study, observed successful ovulation, but noted that one ovary was one cm bigger than the other. After 3 more months, my dr. suggested continued avoidance of gluten and dairy, but also now low carb diet, basically paleo. Still NOTHING! In November 2017 I opted to have a lap to check things out. Before the surgery we tried 2 rounds of clomid, but to no avail! During the surgery, my dr. found that my ovaries were 4 times the size they should be, indicating PCOS, I had a small amount of endo, and clear tubes. My dr. performed a bilateral ovarian wedge resection and used excision to remove the endometriosis and stressed for me to continue to eat paleo/low carb, and continue exercising. At this point I ate no more than 75 carbs a day and ran 4-5 days a week. three months after the surgery, I was still not pregnant! But saw an improvement of symptoms from the surgery (hair growth, low anxiety, better ovulation). We checked my progesterone and it indicated that I was ovulating, but it was not strong enough for implantation. (above a 5, lower than 10). We tried 2.5 mg femara in the fourth month after surgery, in addition to progesterone supplements at 3 DPO and no monitoring or injections. AND IT WORKED!!!! As difficult as it was to battle infertility, I am so grateful to have found that my body was not functioning properly and I can fix it with diet and exercise. Lean PCOS comes with its own hardship... you cannot just lose weight to improve symptoms. The mechanism of hormonal communication is broken. I attribute everything to the wise surgery my dr. did for me, and to God who truly does everything in His own time.

IUI to AF to BFP

I cannot believe I finally get to submit my BFP story!! EEEK History on DH and I: I am 26 and he is 27. I have minor history of PCOS (one cyst once and told PCOS) and elevated Prolactin (highest recorded: 61). DH has low numbers (<10 million pre wash) and low motility (<20% pre wash). We have been trying to conceive for 3 years. We were put on 3 rounds of clomid (May, June, and August 2017) with no pregnancy success but had positive ovulation tests every time. OBGYN sent us to South Florida IVFMD for further help. Reproductive Endocrinologist suggested IUI since both hubby and I were below average but not so low to where she suggested IVF. She placed me on synthroid (hypothyroidism runs in my family and my numbers were a little too off for their liking) and I started Femera 12/26/2017. IUI was on 01/05/2018 and 01/06/2018 where DH had a 2.4 million/ 65% post wash sample and 600,000/95% post wash sample. I was instructed to either have a beta done or do a HPT 01/18/2018. However, I started spotting 01/16/2018 and thought for sure I was out. I took a FRER HPT 01/18/2018 and saw the faintest line but only if I held it up to the bathroom light. I thought I was making myself crazy and threw it out. 01/20/2018, I starting bleeding very heavily, bled a medium flow the next day, and had two spots of blood 01/22/2018. I went to the doctor to start our second round of IUI where she did a beta pregnancy test only as a formality. Shockingly, she said I was pregnant (Beta: 26) but was probably losing the baby to miscarriage with all the bleeding I experienced that weekend. She placed me on Progesterone suppositories to stop the bleeding and I took another Beta two days after (Beta: 44). Now that they confirmed that I was still pregnant, they were worried about ectopic pregnancy with the beta not doubling. They ordered another Beta Friday (Beta: 96). NUMBERS MORE THAN DOUBLED!! They are not so worried about ectopic now :) Hopefully our little Peanut will continue to grow happily and healthily. I wanted to share because I want all the women out there to know that weird things can happen and you can be pregnant with all of the situations above and more I'm sure. What I did in the month of the IUI that may have helped me get pregnant: Took Prenatal and Vitamin E everyday The day of the IUIs, DH and I BD and I laid down for the rest of the day. After the IUI, ate 1/5 pineapple with core for five days. Also, placed a heating pad either on my back or belly throughout the work day. Lastly, I followed chinese medicine and only drank warm fluids, drank lots of water and tea, and had full fat dairy. I also exercised with walking or jogging every day (not a common thing for me). I also visualized the sperm joining with the egg. I know it sounds weird but some women swear by it and it worked for me :) Other than normal period symptoms, I did not have any pregnancy symptoms the weeks after IUI.

Finally me!

So I have to say thank Jesus! I know it’s because of him my 10 month infertility has come to an end. I know that may not seem like a long time but after the doctor told me I didn’t really have a chance a getting pregnant I knew I had to talk to a higher power i.e. God! Details: Cd 21: Dreamed I was at the doctor 38 weeks pregnant. Cd:23 Me and DH did the BD OD: I ovulated 1DPO: I felt hot! I guess this was a temp rise due to ovulation. 2DPO: nausea and watery CM 3DPO: Indegestion/ Heartburn, watery CM 4DPO: very hungry 5DPO: BFN (I originally thought I ovulated the week before. 6DPO: started Vitex so period should start.

BFP after months of trying to get aligned with DH, very detailed.

I write this full of hope and with an encouraging testimony of God's Perfect Timing. DH (40) and me (36) have been married almost 12 years. We have DS age 8 and DD age 5. About 2 years ago, I started feeling like there was one more little soul out there for us. It took me 6 mos of praying about it and talking with moms with kids similar ages to convince myself that this was the best thing for my family and not the result of me growing older. The idea of starting all over when my kids are just getting independent had me very undecided. Sept 2016 I tried to broach the subject with DH and he was adamantly against it. Fast forward to January 2017, I decide that i want to remove my IUD because it will expire this year. Hubby understands, but starts talking about vasectomy which sends me into a tailspin. For months (felt like years) we went around and around the subject every date night, every long night talking in bed, and not getting any closer to being aligned with direction and goals. Sex has become a battleground where he either pulls out or insists on wearing a condom, and about 1x a month, he either forgets or "slips up". Fast forward again to May 2017. I start feeling those feelings that only mothers know... tingly nips, cramping way too far in advance of AF, June 1st 2017, BFP! Picture this, I'm elated while DH is pouting. Fast forward again, July 2017, first ultrasound, empty sac, cue utter devastation and depression. Deep sadness, loneliness, body betrayal, heart is shattered. DH and I are still not aligned. Still having challenging conversations, but I am convicted that this 3rd pregnancy and baby is meant for us and critical to my overall happiness. Fast forward to November 2017, my period is 5 days late, i take countless tests, and symptom spot everything... devastated again when my AF arrives 7 days late. December, something has changed in my husband, he sees how sad I am. He starts to recite some of the things that i've been saying to him over the past 1.5 years. He says that he finally understands and agrees that 2018, in June specifically, we'll start baby making, enough time for him to mentally prepare for another pregnancy and child. **Alignment** Cue the happy tears and enormous weight lifted! NOW picture NYE 1/1/18 , great date night, we have a wonderful dinner, we go out dancing like we're 20 yo again. Madly in love. BD 2-3x (honestly can't recall) between 2am- 5am!! No condoms, no inhibitions= WHOA! The following week 1/5/18, similar BD activity, another date night, booze flowing and wild passionate night, no condoms, no pulling out, and lingerie involved! Now for all the juicy details: 32 average AF cycle, O on CD 18-20 CD 18 1/5/18: EWCM, BD 2x despite having a head cold, sinus pressure, runny nose, napped mid day. BBT 98.0 CD 19 Suspected Ovulation date: 1/6/18- nothing remarkable, CM dried up. BBT 97.6 (Big dip) DPO 1: BD, CM dry other than while DTD, Napped again midday, trapped gas BBT 98.0 DPO 2: 3 BM's very loose, car sickness after having sushi with friends for lunch. Cold symptoms again BBT 97.9 DPO 3: nothing remarkable, 2 BM's loose stool again (TMI) BBT 98.4 DPO 4: Cramps with FMU, nips tingly? I can't tell. High stress at work BBT 98.5 DPO 5: Tried Zumba class mid day at work with coworkers- I'm so sore, rib cage hurts? Cramps again, Vivid dreams. Shitty memory, couldn't think of the word parasail while playing a game with my family. BBT 98.6 DPO 6: Up during the night to pee. Chiropractic- adjustment. Late evening feels like i'm getting sick again, spot in my throat feels sore when I swallow. By morning symptoms vanish. BBT 98.5 DPO 7: Head up to VT for a weekend with adults. Slept in the car. Nips definitely tingly. Embarrassingly forgetful in front of friends. ST memory is total crap. Can't remember actors names and literally stop talking mid sentence because i'm so aware of my forgetfulness. BD that night but it was BONE DRY. Like uncomfortable :( Zero CM. BBT 98.9 DPO 8: Still at the log cabin in VT. ST memory fails left and right. Hot apple cider gave me raging heartburn. BD= completely dry again, uncomfy... burning sensation in abdomen. BBT 98.6 DPO 9: Nips definitely tingly. Finally satisfied my craving for an eggroll!! Whiteheads on my forehead, more heartburn. Burning in abdomen and cramping before bed. BBT 98.3 (Implantation dip?!) DPO 10: BBT 98.6 temp goes back up.... OMG am I really pregnant?! Low back aches, more heartburn when eating. Don't want coffee- very unusual for me. DPO 11: BBT 98.6 (temp stays up!!) BD 2x, not so dry down there anymore. Boobs hurt during BD. Gassy and heartburn after eating. DPO 12: BBT 98.8 (That's it, i'm testing today, I can't wait another 3 days!) Still don't want coffee. BFP with FMU!! Going to take a digital test on Monday (when AF is officially late) and show that one to hubby in a special way.
