I finally get to post a bfp story, WAY sooner than expected! This is not an ideal situation in the least, it's going to be hard and DH and I will be extremely tested along the way, but as I've been waiting to ttc again for close to 2 years, I feel blessed(: I was preparing a hardcore boy sway (which ended up being very weak bc I only got 1 cycle into it) while waiting for DH to be ready to ttc our 2nd, and I got a surprise bfp at 12dpo! We had sex on o day and DH used po method, he said he did NOT have an accident in the least. What I did for my boy sway: changed my diet from acidic to alkaline, 1 full cycle of fertilitea, 1-3 servings of Bolthouse Farms "Green Goodness" or "Daily Greens" juices daily, and 1-3 teaspoons of cinnamon daily (on toast with honey, in a spoonful of honey, on mashed banana with honey), & I ate plenty of bananas for potassium. I hope this all helped me sway blue, but I won't know for about 5 months lol I definitely think te fertilitea & cinnamon aided in my conception, considering we were not trying atm, and I had not known cinnamon could help reduce insulin resistance and aid conception I was simply taking it for its alkalizing properties! I think fertilitea and/or cinnamon are both worth a try if you've been ttc for awhile and are trying to stick to the natural approach!! I'm pretty sure I have endometriosis but have not been diagnosed, I get severe pain(keeled over for 10+ min from DTD close to af and sometimes even close to o, and I suffer a very short light af and agonizing cramps that persist even after af has left. I think the fertilitea helped correct this, I started taking it 1.5 weeks before af last cycle and drank 1 serving (about 12floz) of triple strength(3tsp) tea a day leading to o, and 1 serving (10floz) of double strength(2tsp) tea every other day post o.
Symptoms by dpo(:
1-6dpo - a LOT of chunky,white, & wet cm, but only when checking for cm.
6dpo - backache, af type cramps (EARLY in cycle compared to "normal"), gas!
7dpo - .7 spike in bbt. Af cramps, Backache, irritable, tender bbs, watery cm (this time it is slightly leaking onto panties, this is the ONLY time in tww I had more cm than normal!) gas!! Very irritating sore throat
8dpo - bloated. Horrible headache in pm (not an af sign for me, I rarely get them) Irritable!, af cramps, still sore throat
9dpo - backache, heartburn (later in tww than "normal"), watery cm(only when checking), napped (never happens), throat no longer sore even though no meds not even cough drops taken..odd. Also, no more bloating. Usually when af bloating starts, it stays until af.
6-9dpo - woke each morning feeling like my tummy turned into a bottomless pit, sooo hungry. Constant painful stretching stitches from ribcage down to lower abdomen. light af gurgles. alternating sharp cramps in lower left and right abdomen. Quick burning waves over lower left abdomen. Wave of nausea in evening. Constant Backache and af cramps afternoon temps 99.1-99.5
10dpo - sporadic shooting sensations through right bb. Bbs less sore but still a tad. Feels like pressure on rectum, feels like I need to have a bm but there's nothing in there(sry lol). Temp 99.3 by 9am. While laying down, suddenly entire body had a warm buzzing feeling, like a ghost was pulling a really cozy blanket over my whole body lol, weird. SLEEP! DH off work today, napped during the day from 2-6pm, then in bed by 11pmand slept til 7am(waking once at 3am of course!)! I NEVER do this anymore! Not since I was pregnant with dd!
11dpo - still af cramps but wayyy less intense than previous days. Bbs don't seem sore at all. Flatline temps. Temp 99.5 at 11am. Nauseas, hot flashes. Bloated but in a weird way, not uncomfortably but very tight/round feeling? Bbs ACHE horribly at night. Not really tender, but my Whole chest, soo achey! & Never thought frequent pee breaks was a real tww symptom until today!
12dpo - 5th flatline temp. Noticed it felt like a lack of symptoms which is unusual with af approaching, esp when it has felt like af was working up a store on me in previous dpos. Bbs not tender but random aches. Feeling good this am surprisingly, normally by now af cramps would be getting intense! Pit in stomach, cramps, like muscles won't stop stretching. Slightest Nausea. Backache. No af gurgles (usually am gurgling almost constantly by now). Random stabs in nips. Also note, no increased cm from 9-12dpo. It is exactly like af cm! No ib either, which I DID have my last pregnancy. Very quick sharp pains, very annoying dull af cramps. Abdomen is taught & tight. Headache. BFP NO HOLD!! WHAT?!
13dpo - so far this morning, nothing. Aside from again waking at 3am, then 7am(I have woken up at these two times consecutively since about 8dpo) and being up for the morning.. I feel nothing. Bbs don't hurt this morning, no nausea. I feel great!
