I can't believe I'm typing this!
We've been trying for 6 months, but it was taking over all my thoughts (and I spent far too much time on this site...). So we decided to give it a break, go on holiday this summer, have fun and start trying again later in the year. My cycles were looooooooooong, anywhere between 40-55 days. Before we made the decision to have a break, I bought some FertilAid and OPKs from the internet. I took the FertilAid anyway thinking it could sort my cycle out for when we start trying again. Anyway, we did the deed a few weeks ago, not thinking for a minute it could lead to pregnancy, since it was about 2 weeks before I could possibly ovulate based on my cycles from the last 2 years. You can guess where this story is going. The next day I had EWCM, and the following day I used one of the OPKs.... which came out positive. Whoops!
Anyway, I have to agree with the ladies who say they had fewer symptoms this time round than when they got their BFNs. I have had sore BBs, but I get them every month and they have been no more sore than usual. Spending hours on sites like this, I assumed they'd be on fire, I'd have implantation bleeding, feeling nauseous, have metallic taste, the works! But nothing out of the ordinary really. Other than sore BBs, my symptoms were:
7-8DPO: Minor craming/pullng/twinges
9DPO: Creamy discharge, which is normal this time of the month anyway
12DPO: Husband out. Bored. May as well take another test, just so I can see BFN number 100000..... holy cr*p!!!! BFP!
So today is only 12dpo. Still very early days. I hope it sticks! I feel like I'm dreaming. After months of BFNs, seeing everyone around me pregnant or with babies, assuming there must be something wrong with me. I think the FertilAid did it, if your cycles are long, get on this stuff. We literally fell pregnant without trying!
I just looked on a due date calculator on the net, and our little one is due on our 10th anniversary! How special is that!
Now to decide how to tell my husband!
Please believe that it will happen for you one day- I thought I'd never get a BFP. And here I am. Babydust to you all xxxx
