We've been trying to conceive our first baby for 3 months and got a BFP at 15 DPO after I had given up all hope for this month!!
We BD'd the day before O and 2 days before that. I was working away on O day so no chance of doing it then. This month I was taking EPO up until O and I also lay down flat after BD for about 10 minutes, after hearing it helped IVF users. I was also doing a lot of yoga breathing techniques every day, but mostly because my job has been stressful. It could have helped though...!
I had way less symptoms this month than other months!
Days 1-4: I felt like I was getting a cold, a bit of nausea but I chalked it up to usual progesterone reaction.
Days 5-7 I began having some faint pains in the left side of my pelvis.
Day 8 I was really irritable, like I was getting PMS and I began to think I was out. Wet CM, which was a little odd. Still a few cramps on my left side, but I had had them last month as well with no joy.
Day 9. BFN. Had a few drinks that night. Really hungry. No other symptoms.
Day 10 Felt like I had a hangover (but I had not drunk that much!). Really weird dreams as well. BFN again, beginning to lose hope.
Day 11 Cramping on left side again. Creamy CM. A few waves of nausea. Feeling calm and happy rather than PMS though.
Day 12. BFN (with my last test in the house for this month) Temp has dipped as well, but still above cover line. Wet CM. Given up for the month, certain that AF is arriving tomorrow and have a few drinks and buy OPKs for next month.
Day 13 did not test. Expecting AF today/tomorrow. A few hot flashes and dizzy spells. A few sharp cramps, made me think AF had arrived early. Temp not risen from yesterday. CM has dried up. Cervix feels low and V almost feels swollen, very tight.
Day 14. No AF but did not test. Temp still lower than it had been but above cover line. A bit of nausea and tiredness and dizziness. Cervix still feels swollen. Bbs tender than I remember before AF. Bloated. A bit emotional. Really hungry for carbs; went out for dinner and stole food off my husbands plate! Had 2 small glasses of wine, took me ages to drink them as I just didn't really want them (very weird!).
Day 15. Huge hangover, despite only 2 drinks in a 4 hour period. Temp up again, put it down to the drinks. Really tired, Bbs really achy. Felt really calm and chilled. Cervix still swollen. Belly very bloated. Tested at lunchtime and BFP!! Could not believe it!!
Day 16 tested BFP again! Bbs aching, cramps, nausea, weird dreams and really tired.
I really felt like my symptoms were stronger in other months and I really thought I was out after 3 BFNs, as I was using First Response / Clearblue digital to test and my LP is normally only 12 days. Just goes to show that you never know....! Good luck and stay calm!!
