I'm 29, DH - 32, this is our first cycle TTC our first child.
We BD CD 11 and 13, with O expected on CD 14. I didn't temp or use OPK, but my cycles are very predictable - 28 days, so I just calculated O day, and watched my CM.
The main symptom I had since O was what i thought was a UTI - it wasn't even an urge to pee, but a constant discomfort and tension in my lower stomach. I thought I had achy BBs a couple of times, but it never lasted. Another time (4DPO) I thought I smelled something that my husband didn't... Anyway, I guess my point is that I kept telling myself that I'm just imagining things, and it's VERY unlikely to happen in the first month of TTC. Plus, we are not the most active BDers.
So yesterday, 10DPO I tested, and neg. This morning (11DPO), I tested again with the internet HCG strip. Laid it down on the counter and brushed my teeth. I sort of forgot that I had it there, because I was sure it'd be neg again. So when I was done brushing, I looked back down, and what I saw startled me! There was a faint BFP! I was sure it wasn't evaporation line, because I only brushed for about 3 mins. I picked it up and examined it at all different angles, in alll kinds of lighting! LOL. Then I decided I better run out and get a digital.
Came back home with a Clearblue digital test and another hcg strip kind, and within about 2 minutes "Pregnant" popped up on the screen, and a second line appeared on the strip...
I woke up my husband, all in tears, and told him I needed to tell him something. Then I handed him a digital test. It took a couple of seconds for the news to register in his sleepy head, but then he said "That's good news! Why are you crying?" Turns out he thought something horrible must have happened when he first saw my face! LOL. What can I say? I was very emotional! Then I said "Happy Father's Day, I guess!".
We never thought it would happen this fast, but we are both very happy!
Good luck to everyone!
