So ive also been reading here, almost daily and not getting much work done! here's the story...
last year Oct at 39yrs old i unexpectedly fell pregnant. Shocked since my daughter is 15yrs old and even though i always wanted another deep down, wasnt planning on it and thought my time was up anyway. After finally accepting the pregnancy and seeing the very strong heartbeat at 6weeks, my world was shattered when i started bleeding at 9 and a half weeks. the baby's heart had stopped at 9wks. On the 4th December i had the d&c. I never realised how devastating it would be. Started trying again in Feb this year, but just seemed like it was never going to happen. My cycle changed and did some strange things. I knew my eggs were "old" and i havent lived a very healthy lifestyle at all. Also a smoker. My DP had a SA and the results were terrible. i then turned 40 in March!! All odds were against us. i Started taking fertilpil, superfood shakes every morning (which contain maca as well) Coq10 and stayed on the prenatal. i also dicovered fertivor which i took the last month only. Only BD the morning of day 9 and the evening of day 10 when i got the positive OPK. Thought we were out since i ovulated on day 12.
6 dpo started getting bad period pains and thought i was having another dudd cycle, the previous month i had a 19 day cycle which i knew was VERY wrong.
7 dpo stayed off work. the pains had been so bad i was awake all night and was still quite saw the morning. Worst period pains i'd ever gotten!
8dpo pains had gone. thought i had a luteal phase defect the previous month and almost took progesterone supplement prescribed by gynae. When i woke up to no period i presumed my progesterone had finally kicked it!! yay! Realised i had been constipated for the last 3 days and was tired. put it down to progesterone kicking in strong!
10dpo had a skin breakout which i havent had since a teenager!! and felt as if my blood sugar dropped making me very woozy and dizzy, had to lie down for half an hour.
12 dpo bad period pains came back, this is it, period coming any minute, but at least i knew my cycle was almost back on
track. almost fell a sleep at my desk at work.
13dpo period pains still here and started putting the puzzle together. Also realised that i had been weeing more, felt dehydrated and the famous tell tale sign...feeling "wet"down there..... didnt think it was possible and i never test, i usually wait for AF to show, but had some free samples that came with the fertilpil so did 2 tests at the same time. Faint line on each after a minute!!!!! 2 days BEFORE AF was due to arrive as per my new cycle since d&c.
went for a blood test straight from work to confirm 1 to 2 weeks pregnant!! So scared to get excited, cannot go through that again, but have decided to think positive with this one!! even going to buy booties or something!!! My daughter screamed and is over the moon!! DP says barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen again! :)
i have prayed so much that this is the one. it will definately be my last chance at trying and the man above knows i cant go through that again!
so, what i did differently this month? Fertivor was new, the rest i mentioned above. Also only bd day 9 and 10, oh and one more funny thing... i spoke to God, my tummy and my body. Told them this is it now, i dont care about anything else, i only want healthy sperm and you get in there and fertilise a healthy egg and go stick! come on, go implant nicely and Lord,only healthy egg and sperm!!! :)
asking for prayers for a healthy 9 months!! :) :) :)
