First BFP, 30 yo, 4 months TTC

Had to share my story because I loved to read other people's stories. This month, I was pretty sure I didn't have a chance. My husband left on the 30th of April for a trip and I didn't ovulate until the 2nd of May at the earliest. I missed some of my temps right around ovulation so I can't be sure which of 3 days I O'd. And to boot, DH and I only BD once or twice, at most prior to his departure.

This month, I prayed a lot that if it was God's will, it would happen, regardless of the nearly impossible number of days that the spermies would have to live in me waiting for me to O. Also I tried Preseed the one confirmed time we BD and I took EPO like a fiend for 5 days before O.

I was not sitting in the TWW this month, because I knew the odds were against me. I was out living life (maybe a little too hard--Cinco de Mayo) and I was exercised pretty well a couple of the days.

After one day in which I ran about 3 miles or so, I was sitting on the couch and my hips were aching, sort of just discomfort in sitting. As I had never heard this to be a pregnancy symptom, I assumed I was sore from running (even though it was a weird spot). It happened the next day as well. Still didn't think anything of it.

Also there were two days during the TWW time frame that I slept like a crazy. I'm a stay-at-home wife right now and I feel like I slept away 2 entire days which is not like me. I completely blamed it on PMS and thought nothing of it.

Lastly, I consumed a ton of water. I always do so at the time I thought little of it, but in retrospect, I can recall getting up constantly to fill my water cup during the TWW timeframe.

I took a test on Mother's Day after 2 hours of sleep and only because I was leaving for a trip and I just wanted to confirm that BFN. I peed, saw nothing, and hopped in the shower for a quick shower. When I opened the curtain, that second line on the stick caught my attention! "WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?!" It was 11DPO if I approximate my using the earliest potential O date.

That day is the day that bbs soreness started setting in, I had had a very subtle ache in them, but it was a slow onset to soreness. Also after testing, I had a couple of days in which I had an intense sudden urge to urinate. That has calmed down, but it was surprising. I really didn't expect that to happen until the baby was large and physically pushing on my bladder.

Good luck to all on your BFPs! I'm praying for you! 

BFP After MC

I am super excited to finally be writing this, I came across this site for the first time in December during my long wait for AF to arrive, ever since I have been a fan of this site and check it out frequently because it would help me keep my sanity. I thought I would write my story to help keep other ladies like me sane!

Well a little about myself. I came off of bc in May 2011, since we had come off we were not really trying just not preventing. My cycles were still irregular so we were giving my body time to get used to being off of bc. I started a cycle on August 31, 2011 and on October 5 or 6 I tested and got a BFP right away. I wasn't really tracking anything so I don't remember a whole lot of symptoms and all that good stuff. I just remember having headaches and feeling tired. Unfortunately, on November 11 when I went in to the doctor for a ten week check up they couldn't find a heartbeat. They did an ultrasound and discovered that the baby had stopped growing at about seven weeks. I had not had ANY miscarriage symptoms, yet my baby hadn't had a heartbeat for three weeks and was still in my uterus. The doctor gave me three options wait for my body to eventually miscarry on its own (who knew how long this would take considering three weeks had passed and I had no symptoms), or he could give me some medicine that would induce the miscarriage, or he could do a D&C. He recommended doing the D&C. After my DH and I discussed this in our home we decided to do the D&C. The procedure was done on November 16, everything went great and the waiting game began. The doctor advised me that my period would come in four to six weeks and we could TTC after my first cycle. Well that was NOT the case for me. It took thirteen weeks for my period to come after my D&C. This seemed like an ETERNITY!!! AF showed up on Valentines Day for the first time! So let the BDing begin!!

I've had three cycles since, and I guess the third one is the Charm! I got my BFP this morning.

This is how this cycle played out:

April 17 AF arrived.
I started using opks this month for the first time on CD10. I Oed on May 4, we BDed two days before O day, O day, and the day after O day.
1-2DPO- nothing really
3DPO-really hungry all day
4-5DPO-nothing
6DPO-few light headaches throughout the day, and I got a "feeling" that I could be preggo (didn't really want to listen to it because I didn't want disappointment)
7DPO-few light headaches throughout the day, fatigue, irritable, couldn't sleep, weird vivid dream, DH is getting acne on his face (he NEVER has acne on his face)
8DPO-few light headaches, fatigue, couldn't sleep, light nausea, I think I dreamed I got a bfp during my nap
9DPO-hungry, light nausea, fatigue, lethargic, bb's starting to hurt and look bigger
10DPO-dizzy spells, bb's hurt/sore and are bigger, fatigue, bfn in afternoon with dollar store test, and just have a really strong feeling that I am preggo
11DPO-bb's still hurting, fatigue/sleepy, took a dollar test with fmu and I THINK I see a SUPER faint line (but I could be seeing things), took another test in the afternoon and I think the line is darker
12DPO-Tested FMU with FRER and there is definitely a line there BFP!!!! I couldn't believe it! I am super EXCITED! I am pregnant with my rainbow baby! Today I have been really tired just want to sleep, had a kind of scary dizzy spell right after lunch,very light headache, and super crampy (like AF cramps)

Also from 6DPO to today I have had a lot of creamy/white CM, and occasional backache.

Things we did different:

we PRAYED A LOT! I prayed every night and asked God to give me a miracle! I feel so blessed! I really hope that this little bean/miracle sticks and I have my precious baby in my arms in January.

Sending loads of baby dust to each and every single lady out there on that rough TTC journey. I hope that God sends you all your little miracle soon. Don't give up ladies, have faith it will come to you! 

BFP First Month!

This morning I got my First ever BFP on day 28 of my cycle! DH is 38 and I'm 32 and we have been married for a year. We are catholic and always wanted to let things happen naturally when God wanted, but due to work commitments over the past year we have never once been together during my fertile time. Things have changed over the last few months and this month we were finally together at the appropriate time. My cycles are not very regular- ranging from 25 to 40 days so I observe CM to determine my fertile period. I always thought I would have great trouble conceiving because of this (and also DH smokes).

So, I noticed EWCM from about days 10- 18 and we BD on days 11 and 15. That was all. Should also mention that we have both been on conception vitamins for a while (boots own brand and wellman conception).

I decided to carry on as normal during the ttw since I truly did not expect anything. I attended 3 weddings, drank champagne, danced and had late nights. And I continued with my gym workouts, although did get a stitch during one of my runs.

On day 19 I noticed a very slight amount of brown CM. I have had brown spotting at ovulation before but I suppose it could have been implantation. Also from day 19 my BBs got quite sore- normally this only happens 5 days before AF. (just thought AF would be early this month). This continued and they still hurt a lot!

I noticed a bit if creamy CM between days 20-28 and also started feeling a bit more tired than usual, but put this down to the stress and late nights from the weddings.

Big clue was that I noticed some blue veins on my left breast on day 26. I didn't want to get my hopes up at this point but that is certainly not usual for me!

Also started being sensitive to smells- I walked in to a room filled with people and immediately was hit by an overwhelming smell of leather. It was my DH's shoes but no one else in the room could smell it at all! I developed a bit more hunger - mentioned to my sister that I was craving a bacon roll (night after wedding/late night/alcohol so that's not an unusual craving!) She immediately asked if I was pregnant as she craved carbs through her pregnancies!

Decided to take a clear blue digital test this morning (mostly to put my husband out of his misery) During the wait I was completely expecting it to say 'not pregnant' and was shocked when it came up with 'pregnant 1-2 weeks)!!!

We are very lucky and are hoping that everything will be fine- I am off to the shops now to stock up on healthy food and more PTs!

I should also mention that we both did pray a lot. Just before my fertile time I prayed a 9 day novena to St Gerard. And after ovulation I prayed a 9 day novena to St Anne. I believe that helped us conceive and I will definitely be popping in to church later to say thank you! 

BFP with No. 2

Firstly I would like to give God all the praise and thanks He deserves because nothing is even slightly possible without Him. After miscarrying in November, I thought it might not happen again. And my DD who is 3 has been calling other people her "brother" or "sister" and I really wanted to give her one too.

My LMP was on 04/15 and we BD on 03/27. That was it! Ok so I did some bycicle peddals in the air afterwards for about 5 mins and then that was really it! DH was tired and didnt want to stress about it anymore so I knew we were out. i still havent told him yet because we've been arguing a bit and both quite emotional right now. But I give thanks to God who works all things out for good for them that love Him.

Symptoms: Nothing. I was not expecting anything so I didnt pay attention till a few days before AF was to show i.e 05/12. A few light cramps, vivid dreams that my DH was cheating (I actually came face to face with her in the dream!), and then no AF but i am a few days late sometimes so thought nothing of it.

Didnt do anything different except cut back on sweet things, a bit of green tea, but most of all lots and lots of PRAYER! Oh, and OPK's as well. Realised I was ovulating earlier than i thought.

Thank you all for your stories which sustain many of us and give us hope, and babydust to everyone! Please dont lose hope!

PRAY, have FAITH and WAIT on the Lord!

Mother's Day BFP with #2! Prayer Works! So Do Insead Cups lol. Thank GOD Above!

Hi, I cannot express what this site has meant to me during my trials and tribulations. I'm so excited to share my story as I hope it resonates with some of you out there looking for hope.

DH and I conceived DD in November 2009 without trying (using VCF only). We were shocked and of course excited but in total disbelief since we had used that method for 4 years without fail. We didn't really have baby plans since we're the type of people to just let what happens happen. And it was truly the perfect pregnancy.

Well, fast forward to July 2011. I was hospitalized with a 5cm mass on my thyroid that required removal of 1/2 my thyroid and then a long wait-and-see for medication. In that time my cycles jumped from 21 to 28 days with spotting in between. My Endo kept checking my levels until they finally dropped to an "extreme" hypothyroid state (November 2011) and then gave me Synthroid. Around Christmas I began talks with DH about trying for #2 but he was very scared considering all my health issues and suggested we just do the same ol' NTNRP method. This was very difficult because I knew this wasn't going to work this time around. So I went to see my GYN and she suggested I use OPK's and BBT to make sure the female hormones were still in check while I waited on the thyroid meds to kick in. I just used OPK's because I have a 2-1/2 year old ... no way could I possibly do that every morning. I noticed shortly after that my LP was anywhere between 9 to 11 days. So, I scheduled another GYN appointment and she told me not to worry because you can actually ovulate before you get a +OPK (depending on the time of day you test). Whew!

I did however start taking EPO and trying to time our NTNRP to those special days. But cycle after cycle kept going by without anything.

In February my Endo said my levels were at a 2 but upped the medicine so that I would be closer to 1. And with that, my cycles changed all over again (from 24-26-24 again).

Finally this cycle I decided to do something I thought would be a real gamble: prayer. I prayed every day for my body and my husband's body. I prayed for everyone else too (everyone deserves to be prayed for). I made sure to pray multiple times a day for a miracle, often opening my bible for support and reassurance. I know that babies are not science but miracles: no matter the outcome. I have to say it's my belief that this is what worked this time.

Here's the breakdown:

CD11: BD use instead cup
CD14: +OPK, BD, ewcm (the only day I really notice it), use instead cup
CD15: +OPK, BD, use instead cup (believe this is really the O day)
CD16: +OPK, BD, no cup
CD17: BD early morning, use instead cup, later got a -OPK
1DPO-3DPO: usual pressure and cramps, nothing new
4DPO: headache (usually get them day of AF)
5DPO-6DPO: mild pressure on and off, usual PMS
7DPO: starving!!! I had to have a hamburger (was like this with DD)
8DPO: starving again!!! ate another hamburger, peeing a lot and exhausted
9DPO: typical 9DPO spotting (ulgh!! definitely thought AF was coming), -HPT with FMU on FRER (stored it for later review lol); have lots of pressure near cervix *got home from work and there was a faint-faint-faint pink second line but discount it because it was like 8 hours after the fact
10DPO: spotting again (really thinking AF is coming) ... there was a big glob of chocolate-brown CM; starving, ate another hamburger, get -HPT on dollar tree brand but starting to wonder
11DPO (CD26): get -HPT on dollar tree brand; "forget about it I'm out" (thinking AF is coming because I got milk-chocolate brown CM glob when I wiped) but AF is sort of late; go out to eat for Mother's Day with DB and DM and DB asks if I'm pregnant because I'm using the lav a lot; race home to take another FRER and guess what??? BFP YA'LL. On Mother's Day. SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!

Like I said, the only thing truly different this round was obsessively praying and using instead cups after BD. I also drank two 1,000 mg packets of EmergenC a day, a 50mg of b6, and I tried to O after every BD.

You have to believe that everyone's road is different. Don't compare yourself with other's (I did and I never came out winning). It's near impossible I now but take time to bring peace to your life and it will happen to you the moment you realize that you can't do it on your own. It really isn't science!

I have a long road with my hypothyroidism and I'm hoping that this pregnancy is as smooth as the first. If not, I just pray for a healthy baby at the end of it. God bless all you wonderful ladies out there! 

BFP 15dpo, 4 Months TTC. Thank You God!

I would like to share my story with all of you lovely ladies as this site has made the TWW's bearable. I got my beautiful BFP at 15dpo and I have God to thank, because He made this possible.

I'm 29 and my wonderful DH is 31, we've been married for 5 years. We've been trying to conceive for 4 months, which is not really a long wait I know, but it felt like forever! So my heart and prayers go out to those of you who have been trying for so much longer and still waiting for a BFP!

I was diagnosed with PCOS 6 years ago and was told that I did not ovulate; I was put on Yasmine and Glucophage. The PCOS cleared up, but every time I went off BC the cysts came back. So I had to go back on BC, delaying TTC every time. I went off the Pill last year and we decided to TTC this January, but then 3 cycles of BFN's made me think that maybe the PCOS is back or that we'll have to go for fertility treatments if it doesn't happen this year.

But this cycle I've decided to put my trust in God completely, my DH and I prayed, asking/begging God for a baby, as in His Word He says: Ask and you will receive. But that goes hand in hand with trusting Him. Every time this month when I had a negative thought that it's not going to be my month again, I would change my mindset and just thank God that He is going to answer our prayers and HE DID!

Despite the PCOS, I always had a very regular cycle of 28-30 days. This month we BD every other day from CD 10-20. I had EWM and ovulation pain on CD 17, but this time the ovulation pain was very painful, so that was weird, I thought that maybe it was a cyst and not ovulation but I tried not to think about PCOS and cysts and concentrate on positive thoughts and trusting God.

What we did different this month:

- We BD past the suspected ovulation day, as before we would stop the day before ovulation due to work schedules
- I continued taking my Calcium and Magnesium supplement, my Folic Acid Forte supplement with B-complex and I also started taking Vitamin C as it helps with the absorption of Iron from your food and Iron helps with fertility (check out this link: http://pregnancy-wonder.blogspot.com/2010/08/can-iron-help-increase-your-fertility.html)
- Both my DH and I started drinking green tea, although we both hate the taste! - I also replaced coffee with Rooibos tea (many health benefits and tastes great. Check out these links:

My TWW symptoms:

- Cramping: started at 6dpo, got worse at 8dpo, stopped at 12dpo
- Breakouts: I had no breakouts this month which was a definite sign as I usually break out just before AF
- CM: Increase in CM (creamy) 7&8dpo
- Sensitive and swollen BB's: Started at 7dpo and continued getting more sore and swollen
- Sore nips: Started at 13dpo
- Spotting: I had a few specks of blood on TP when I wiped at 8dpo (implantation?)

This month I decided not to test until I miss my period by at least 1 day, as I used to be a POAS addict and the BFN's just got me down. So I tested 2 days ago and BFP!!! We are so excited and so thankful for our little miracle! Today I'm 17dpo and I get terrible nausea and headaches, especially in the evenings. BB's and nips continue being sore and I have insomnia, which I never get! But all the symptoms are worth it! Sorry for the loooong story, but I just wanted to share it with all of you as so many of you helped me during my TWW. Those of you who are still waiting for your BFP's, just have faith and believe that it will happen, because it will.

Lots and lots of baby dust!!! xxx 

BFP @ 12DPO, NO SYMPTOMS!!!!

I cannot believe I am writing this!! My hands are still shaking. We've been TTC#1 since January 2012, and I really thought this month was out because I was having no symptoms..... It was my first month charting my temperatures, too, but I knew something was up this morning when my temperature was a full degree higher!

Here's the rundown:
BD on CD 7,9,10,11,14
Ovulation Day: CD 14 (per FF; I did not use OPKs)
1-4DPO immediately a stuffy nose
4DPO: insane doubling-over gas pains/bloating...it was horrible...this was new for me, I have never had this.
5DPO-11DPO: really stuffy nose, gassy/bloated but not too bad, INSANE bad mood (completely worse than any bad mood I've ever had....I am now a crazy person!) This was also new for me.
12DPO: a little cramping, figured af was here; CP was so high I couldn't touch it though....temp was up a full degree from yesterday...decided to test w/FMU: BFP!!! OH MY LORD!

Things I did different this month that I really think made the difference:

Lots of raspberry leaf tea, taking EPO, BComplex w/ my prenatals, NO COFFEE AT ALL, we used instead cups after BDing each time, Maca Root Powder, and LOTS OF HEALTHY FOOD (check out naturallyknockedup.com....I followed a pretty strict "diet" of super foods)....and TONS of praying. :) :)

Good luck to everyone else...... It will happen!!!!

5 Months TTC - 27 Yrs Old

A little background knowledge…

DH 29 and I'm 27. We went off BC on our holiday in December 2011. I got a FAINT BFP with FMU at
13DPO followed by blood when I wiped at lunch time. The blood was only on the toilet paper once
that day. I thought I was going to be one of those girls that bled at the beginning of her pregnancy.
The bleeding continued very lightly for 5 days and then I got a BFN. So this ended up being a
Chemical Pregnancy. I was devastated!! I put it down to flying during early pregnancy. During my
2WW we flew on at least 5 planes, 3 of which were international flights. I have now done research
and found out that flying during early pregnancy (especially OS flights) is not good.

I was told that the first cycle after a CP is really easy to get pregnant….but I didn't and my next 2
cycles were 42 days.

After these 2 long cycles, I was over it, so I got serious!! I did lots of research to find out how to
shorten my cycles and get EWCM, so I would know when I'm ovulating. I started taking Evening
Primrose Oil (EPO) and Vitex. I also bought Clearblue digital OPK's. I decided to get these because I
didn't know when I was ovulating and it was very very hard to BD at the right time because my DH
was working 12hr shifts, 6 days a week and he was tired all the time.

I like to plan everything and have everything all worked out….but this month I decided that it might
take at least 3 months to get my cycles regular and for my DH's work hours (he is a wine maker and
it's vintage) to slow down so he is home more and isn't as tired anymore. I decided I wasn't going to
force us to BD even if I ovulated….I found forcing us to BD was adding unnecessary strain on us.
So I changed how I was thinking about ttc and therefore changed my expectation to be…. it's was
going to take a while and it will be ok because I don't really want a Christmas baby anyway….so I
was quiet relaxed about the whole thing. (More relaxed than before anyway....but I really think it
helped changing my expectations)

I started using my OPK's on CD 12 at around 1:30/2pm every day. I got a smiley face on CD 21, but
DH was working/tired. I got another smiley face the next day….and we just happen to BD cos we
both felt like it. We had an appointment to go to straight after, so I couldn't lay with my legs in the
air. Also this was the only time we BD'd for the week before and after O.….but I wasn't going to
stress about it because my expectation was that it was going to take a while anyway.

The whole TWW I had creamy CM, tiny cramps/bloated feeling and my BB's were slightly sore on
and off. All of which I usually have. What was unusual for me was…

1-3 DPO-
~I felt hot all day.
4 DPO –
~Nearly cried watching a reality tv show, which wasn't even sad.
5-8 DPO –
~Start to feel tired at around 5-6pm every night. Just think its cos I'm back at work after 2 week off.
~Stretchy CM. Now I started to suspect something because that is really unusual for me pre-af.
~Indigestion pain starts and comes & goes after I eat…I had to Google it to find out what it was
because I've never had that.
9-DPO –
~Have a dream that I have a baby girl (she is a toddler in the dream). NEVER had a baby dream ever.
10-DPO -
~Still tired
~Nipples hurt and boobs hurt and its different pain to how they hurt before AF comes.
~Test with OPK (heard they can detect pregnancy) but it came back Negative. ☹
11-DPO -
~Test with FResponse ….BFP. It is faint….but not as faint as it was with my Chemical Pregnancy…
I can't believe it. I decide not to tell DH yet until it is stronger because he didn't really believe it
last time when I ended up having the CP.
12-DPO -
~Getting tired earlier now…at around 4pm
~BB's hurt more, especially on each side which I call 'side boob'.
13-DPO –
~Test with FResponse….BFP!!!! (not faint anymore) and Clearblue digi PREGNANT 1-2 weeks

AF is due in 2 days….and I'm going to the doctor tomorrow for blood work.

I haven't had nausea or frequent urination yet!! But I don't care what symptoms I get…I'm just going
to love every moment of this precious gift I have been given!!

5 Months TTC, Finally A BFP! Praise God!

Hi everyone! So like a lot of others, I've been spending a lot of time on this site, and wanted to share a bit of my story with all you who are still waiting for your positive!

I am 26 years old, dh is 27, married 3.5, and never been pregnant. I came off bcp at the end of September, when we were ready to start ttc, and have had cycles since that ranged from 27-40 days. I tried temping, but I never got into the habit, so finding out the date I ovulated was tricky. I used opt’s in January and got a positive on day 14. Next cycle, I never got a positive, but I think I stopped too early because this cycle I got a positive on cd 21.

I’ve kept careful track of my body symptoms the last few months, hoping to find a pattern for my own information, so I have a pretty good record of the symptoms that led to a bfp on a clearblue digital this morning. So looking back, to be honest, there weren’t a lot of signs. I always thought it’d be pretty obvious, but I wasn’t even sure when I got a faint line on an internet cheapie yesterday.

I’ll summarize it so as not to fill this whole page! We bd’d 3 times the 2 days before I ovulated. I started having af-like cramps about 2 dpo. No marked increase or decrease in cm the whole tww. It did the normal dry-up, get thicker thing. However it got quite bright yellow on 7-8 dpo, then went back to normal. About that time I also had a bright yellow discharge from my nipples, which is usually clear. Weird!

My bbs never got, and still aren’t sore. I usually get sore nipples after ovulation until af, and that didn’t happen either, but I did notice on 7 dpo that my (very small) bbs looked a bit...rounder. That kept up for a few days, and then they seemed to deflate, so I was sort of taking that as a sign af might be around the corner. Luckily for me, I think they’ve puffed up again!

The only other things I think might be symptoms are some pretty strong emotions (I’m not and wasn’t an irritable person, just had a tough time keeping tears in at some weird times), an extreme craving for salty things (I am a salt lover, but this was out of the ordinary), and a touch of forgetfulness that is unusual for me!

I did have cramping pretty much everyday. An odd mix of ovulation type pains, and the deeper, achy af kind. That’s really my only symptom now as well. I am also a cervical position checker, and it’s absolutely true that it gave me no indication whatsoever. Even now, it feels like it’s all over the map: soft, hard, closed, open, low, high. But I will likely stop checking now.

Anyways, like most of you know, it is a long, very frustrating, emotional journey to get to this point, and I am no stranger to it! I’m very thankful to be here, and give God all the glory! I think it finally happened for me when I really did just trust, and that’s all I can do now for the next 36 weeks! My love to all of you, and grace and peace be with you!

BFP with Femara, Injectibles, Trigger Shot and Lots of Prayer!!!

Praise God!! I finally get to submit my story after 9 months of TTC! Today is 12dpo and my doctor just called to confirmed I AM PREGNANT!!! It's still super early, but it's positive. I give all the glory and honor to God. Without Him, I would not be typing this right now. So now to the good part:

My regimen this month was: 5mg Femara (Letrozole) on CD 3-7, the 50 units of Follistim (injectible) CD 8-13. HCG Trigger Shot on CD 15. Ovulated CD 16.

2dpo - Immediately noticed increased creamy CM. Temp up very high for me.
3dpo - Still lots of creamy CM. Low backache begins.
4dpo - Lots of Creamy CM, continued Low back pain. Can't seem to stay asleep at night.
5dpo - Blood when I blew my nose. still tons of creamy CM, this really got me thinking...still bad sleep. Still low backache.
6dpo - irrationally hungry, want to eat lots of carbs and bacon!! still tons of creamy cm. backache getting better
7dpo - DH took me to the circus :) the smoke was really bothering my nose and throat. Felt light headed and kind of faint. still more creamy cm. Temp still super high. Blood when I blew my nose again. By now, I'm thinking I MUST be pregnant.
8dpo - Lots of creamy CM, very difficult to have BM.
10dpo - finally see the Trigger shot is not giving me a positive on my hpt anymore...now the wait begins to see it turn back to positive to know it's real! Felt super tired this day and somewhat cranky.
11dpo - huge temp drop, like almost a full degree! Was totally convinced this was implantation! thought I saw a faint line on my ic...DH says he thinks he might see something. Neither of us are convinced...but I'm secretly thanking the Lord since I just know I'm pregnant!
12dpo - BFP! See a second line on Equate brand hpt. Go to the doctor to confirm with blood test. Still super early, but totally positive!!

I am to go back in 3 days to confirm my levels are rising. I'll probably continue to take hpt's just to watch the lines get darker! DH and I are out of our MINDS with excitement. This is our first baby. I have never ever had a positive before.

What I did during this cycle:
Started going to church
Told some girlfriends who are moms to agree with me through prayer that this would be our successful month
Prayed WITH DH every night
Used Pre-Seed
Elevated booty with pillow
Made sure I had the big O after DH
stopped smoking and drinking
cut out caffeine during TWW
Ate Sunflowers seeds, eggs, noodles, anything high in Folic Acid during the TWW
Believed through faith that this was it. Thanks God every day for the miracle growing inside me.

I'm praying for all of you as well. Stay faithful and diligent and God will reward you with the desire of your heart! xoxo
