I am still in shock!! A little background info: I am 29 and DH is 32. I had been on the pill since I was 17. I went off of it right before we got married 2010 and then had extremely painful and heavy periods. I made a big deal about it with my OBGYN and she sent me for testing. It turned out I had an abnormal cyst on my left ovary which she wanted to remove. So, after surgery and successful removal of the cyst I was diagnosed with endometreosis. During the surgery the doc said he "cleaned it up" as best he could.
After this the doctor advised me to either try to get pregnant or go back on the pill. Since we had just gotten married, we wanted to wait so I went back on the pill for another year. Then, I stopped taking the pill in June of 2012. I waited and waited and my period never came. Two months later I called the OBGYN. She sent me to a fertility specialist because of my history and they did the whole work up. All the tests came back good and hubby has "super sperm". So, they induced my period (had to do this 2x) and we started clomid in December. The doc monitored my cycles with blood work 2x a month and ultra sound. And finally, after the second round of clomid I have a BFP!!! We are so excited!!
So since I was obsessed with reading everyone else's day by day symptoms, here are mine:
I believe I ovulated on cycle day 19 (doc and fertility friend agree). Positive OPK on CD 18, 19, and 20. BD on cycle day 18, 19, 20. I have had creamy/watery cm since ovulation.
1-2 DPO - Sore nips and cramps (normal for me)
3-4 DPO - Slightly sore nipples (usually don't last this long) and I noted I had tons of energy and just felt really good.
5-7 DPO - nothing to speak of.
8-9 DPO - CRAMPS and bloated! I thought AF was on her way. DPO 9 I woke up at about 4 am with cramps.
10 DPO - Outer breasts became sore and felt briefly nauseous in the evening. Also, I didn't keep track of the specific day (but around day 10) because I didn't think it was related but now I do, I started waking up in the middle of the night with dry mouth. I drink water and I am still thristy. This is still going on! Also, my hair is so dry! I use all the good stuff in my hair and lately it is cracking and splitting and nothing I do seems to help - this is not normal! It is driving me crazy and I am hoping this ends soon. I have read that other people have also experienced this. Oh, and my skin is extremely dry also. I am drinking a lot more water.
11 DPO - Cramps, sore boobs (not usual for me before AF) My luteal phase was 10 days last month so I was convinced AF was going to show up any minute.
12-13 DPO - Nothing, all symptoms gone, boobs a bit sore but I thought it was in my head.
14 DPO - Cramps, bloated, and emotional! Convinced my period was coming, I flipped out during a tv show when one the characters had her baby. Started crying and went to bed at 7:30. DH thought I was losing it!
15 DPO - Slight cramps, but more like pressure.
16 DPO - Couldn't wait anymore and tested. Very clear BFP! I go to the doctor Monday morning to confirm. I didn't want to test early because I was so sick of being let down and wasting money on pregnancy tests.
I have to say that I prayed every morning for God to help me except his timing and for him to help me cope and stay strong! He works miracles and I am very blessed! I will pray for all of you waiting for your BFP. Thanks for reading my book and baby dust to you :-)
