Finally after 9 Months TTC I have gotten my BFP!!!!
Hubby and I are 27 & 26 respectively. We have been actively trying since we were married last year.
Here's what we did differently this month:
- I got a new job and was quite stressed.
- We went on vacation the week before my new job starts (I was supposed to ovulate on vacation and I DID NOT! I ovulated late)
- I kept drinking coffee/wine whenever I wanted (obviously up until BFP)
- NOTHING ELSE!
My husband and I have tried every trick in the book: Pre-Seed, the StorkOTC, Mucinex, special diets, fertility tea, no caffeine, no wine, ovulation kits, legs in the air after sex... everything. You name it, we have done it.
This month, we assumed I would ovulate right at the end of our vacation so we made sure to BD lots right near then. I didn't bring my thermometer on vacation so I had no clue whether or not I truly ovulated as this was the only tracking I was doing. When we got back, I started temping again. Then, a week AFTER I was suppose to ovulate I had a major temp dip into the mid 96s which is classic ovulation temp dip for me. Hubby and I BD that morning before work (I don't lie in bed after, but rather, get up and work out for an hour!) Now, here we are 10 days later with a BFP!!!
1-4: Nothing out of the ordinary
5: A rather significant temp dip (thinking this was implantation dip)
6: Bad Headache all Day.. took Advil in the am and pm
7: Wake up to a nose bleed and high temps. Typical PMS symptoms of sore boobs and back ache set in. Also Dizzy, Exhausted, Cramps on and off all day and night, and the weirdest one: FREEEEEEZING cold feet (literally wore wool socks all day AND slippers and my feet were still Freezing cold).
8: Nose bleed again in the morning. Backache, bloating, sore boobs. Went to a wedding and had to leave early because I felt nauseous.
9: Nose bleed again, backache, bloating, sore nipples only now, cramps, severe fatigue, thirsty more than normal and EXTREMELY grumpy/moody
10: BFP with FMU then held until 1pm and ANOTHER BFP. Temps keep spiking up vs prior mornings. Also stuffy/runny nose and sneezing has now started and it is CONSTANT.
Hubby came home for lunch today and I surprised him with the Positive Test through a scavenger hunt around the house :) We are both over the moon excited and hope this little one sticks!
Good luck to everyone trying and don't give up hope it will happen when it is meant to happen!
