I can't believe it's my turn to write a BFP story! Myself and DH suffered a miscarriage last year and have since being TTC.
This month however we decided to have a break from TTC as the stress of it had become quite overwhelming and we're also moving into a larger house at the end of the month!
I've only ever used an ovulation calculator on my phone and since the miscarriage my periods have regulated at religious 26 day cycles. (I checked my ovulation this month even though we weren't actively TTC!).
The calculator said that I ovulated 1/03/13.
This had been a very busy week at work for DH, so we only BD'd on 03/03/13, which left me thinking I'd missed the cut this month!
Due to having a break this month I've not listed symptoms as strictly as I normally would so heres an estimate of times/symptoms!
0-4dpo Crampy, extremely gassy.
4-7dpo Crampy, gassy, sore BBs.
7-10dpo Still crampy, still gassy! Headache at the back of my head and starting to feel extremely tired, sore BBs.
10-13dpo Exhausted, backache, crampy, hips ache? Started napping!
13-16dpo The sight of generally disgusting things making me feel instantly like I was going to throw up! (one of DHs fish had died and was floating round the tank, I caught a glance whilst eating lunch and imagined it sat on my plate and almost threw up!! Also as a woman walked past me in the street she spat on the floor and I instantly imagined her spit in my mouth gross! tmi haha) I usually have a strong stomach for these things! Weird!
AF was due on 15th.. No sign? I test late evening and get an inconclusive, so I decided to test with first urine of day tomorrow. Wake up 5.30am desperate for a wee. Test then.. BFN! Wake up 9.30am and see faint faint positive! Evap? Test again approx 3.00pm A FAINT BFP!! Test again later FAINT BFP! Use clearblue digital, BFP!!! We're still in shock!!
The only things different for us this month was we took time for our selfs instead of fixating on baby making!! We took the weight of our shoulders and got our BFP.
Got a scary 8 weeks ahead of us after miscarriage but got a good feeling about this pregnancy! Baby dust to everyone!! X
