Hello ladies. It was so helpful to me to read these stories so today, here is mine! I'm 39 and got off birth control pills in February of this year. Right away, I though I was pregnant, had all the pregnancy symptoms from no AF, cramps, hot flashes, tired, and emotions all over the place. Well, that was just the pill. But, it made me realize how badly I wanted to get pregnant again. I have a 10 yr DD. So, I tried for a few months, nothing happened, by June, I was getting paranoid. 10 years ago, I wanted a baby, I got off pill and was pregnant straight away. So, I just assumed it'd be almost that easy. lol, I'm embarrassed at that thought now. Anyway, I got serious and started trying to track ovulation with a calendar and really pay attention to my body, I'd never noticed ovulation before. So in July, went on a romantic trip with my partner and had sex around ovulation time. I just knew I was pregnant, had all the symptoms, 7 days late, but it was all in my head. This happened again in August, September, and November. Then my my best friend said, maybe my partner couldn't have kids since he is 37 and has never had any children. She didn't know it, but it hurt me to the core, then I just sort of gave up, thought about how much I loved him and how great our life would be with my 10 yr old that he loves too. Then BAM!!!!! Was relaxed in October, not thinking about it, BD'd only 3 times (other months it was every other day the entire month - we love it!) and only once around ovulation. I remember thinking the next morning, hmmmmm, I've got a painful throbbing in my lower right ovary area, I wonder if I'm ovulating. Then, I just forgot about it. But, that was it!!!! I work out 6 days a week and for the last two weeks, my workouts just seemed so hard, I was out of breath, and afterward I'd feel so tired instead of energized. Then my partner says "hey when's AF coming?" I realized I was 10 days late!!!! Took a test and the line appeared, I kid you not, about 1 second after the control line and was just as dark. Couldn't believe it!!! Bought another test, a dollar store cheepie, dropped 4 drops of urine per instructions, BAM!!!! Line came up before I could throw away the dropper, it was so dark and so fast. I just quietly sat on the floor and cried. I am so happy and for all you ladies in late thirties and forties or any lady having some issues, I hope my story is an inspiration. I know it's hard to relax, but hopefully I can help someone else focus on all the other great things in their life. Then maybe, like me, the BFP will come when you least expect it!!! I found out 3 weeks before my 40th birthday. Please pray for my little bean to stick.
Unfortunately, I don't remember any symptoms except being tired, that's it. This week (7 weeks from 1st day of LMP) I am getting some nausea, a non-stop disgusting taste in my mouth, and a really defined sense of smell. But, I feel great and God is good!
Baby dust to all!!!!!!
