This is for all of the ladies who have been ttc for 12+ months. My husband and I have been ttc for 16 months with absolutely no end in sight! My RE felt confident I have endometriosis and with every passing month or became more and more apparent I needed surgery. BUT I got my BFP yesterday, entirely natural, and with no medical intervention whatsoever! Here were my symptoms leading up that those two beautiful pink lines...
1-7 dpo - totally normal. Noting happening at all and wasn't even expecting it bc we only BD'd once during my fertile
8-9 dpo - AF cramping hard core. Waayyy too early for these so what is going on?
9-10 dpo - feeling normal, nothing unusual going on at all
11-13 dpo - AF has to be on its way. Sore bbs, watery cm, cramps, sleepy, diarrhea. Oh, yeah, she's acoming.
13 dpo - woke up with a VERY sore throat out of absolutely nowhere and a legitimate cold underway. Slight fever of 99.8 and an overall weird feeling. This is when AF was due.
14 dpo - AF still not here when I wake up. Gushing CM I kept thinking was AT but still nothing. I'm a day late so I have no reason to fight the urge to POAS today. BFP! Darkest line ever! Take another one! Darkest line ever! We're having a baby! Woo!
I just want to add that every month I failed to conceive broke my heart. I not only had started doubting the process, but genuinely thought it couldn't happen this month bc we only BD'd once. And then, surprise. My life has officially changed. :)
