So excited to finally get to do my own story!
Me - 31 yrs old. Hubby - 34 yrs old
Came off the pill in January 2017. We wanted to have a baby in 2018 so the first 3 months were getting thinhs normal. The first cycle was 32 days, then the next cycle was 28 days. That's where it then went haywire. Third was 37 days. This was stem i decided to start temping. The 4th cycle was 38 days. This was our first month of actively trying. After temping it turns out i only have a 10 day luteal phase so had i not been temping i would have been trying at the wrong time. This brings me to our succesful cycle.
My ovulation was delayed a couple of days i think due to a little cold i had. This resulted in a longer cycle of what would have been 41 days. This meant we DTD fpr 7 days straight just waiting for that temp to go up! I tried OPKs but never got a positive. Only a faint line. So i didnt find them useful.
-6 to 0 - DTD. Only difference this cycle i put a pillow under my butt for 30 mins in the last 3 days. I also didn't go to the loo or stand up til the morning. Difference this cycle i also had tender breasts 4 days before O which was not normal. Also had EWCM 4 days before O. Temp -1DPO 36.3
0 - EWCM. DTD. Sick with a cold/mild flu from -1DPO to 4DPO. I thunk this may have helped. Apparently your immune system is lowered and less likely to attack his swimmers. Temp 36.4
1DPO - EWCM. Sick with cold. Temp 36.8.
2DPO - creamy cm. Pimple break out. Still have cold. Temp 36.8. Also my 31st birthday!!!
3DPO - creamy cm. Gassy. Cramps. Still have cold. Temp 36.8
4DPO - creamy cm. Still have cold. Temp 36.7
5DPO - creamy cm. Cold finally over. Temp 36.9. Sore boobs start (and have still not let up now at 11DPO)
6DPO - sore boobs. More pimples which is definitely not liked me. Starting to get suss. Temp 36.8
7DPO - sore boobs. Gassy. And this is when i got super sick. Diarrhoea that got me by surprise i didnt make it to the toilet (sorry TMI). Temp still 36.8. Had the worst sleep. Body aches started, like the flu. One more diarrhoea episode that night.
8DPO - sore boobs. No appetite whatsoever. No appetite means no food which means no diarrhoea at least. Terribly body aches. Slept all day. Temp 38 degrees...fever! Temp discarded. Boobs normally stop hurting at 8 DPO if AF coming.
9DPO - more pimples. What's going on! Temp back to 36.8. Body aches gone but still fatigued. Appetite slightly back. Headache. First very faint BFP on internet cheapie in AM. Little sussed. Did another internet cheapie at PM and slightly more darker. Horrible sleep. Maybe cos my brain was racing and my boobs were killing.
10DPO - sore boobs. Gassy. Slight cramps. More pimples OMG. Dizzy. Very fatigued. Got home from work and decided to bring out the big guns - FRER. Very clear dark BFP and a YES on the digital!!!!!! Wooooooo!!!!!
Now on 11DPO. Blood test tomoro. Much darker BFP on internet cheapie after work today. So tired by the arvo. And hungry! Boobs still hurting :(
We did not expect this to hapoen so quick. I had PCOS as a teen as into my early 20s. My long cycles were also freaking me out. I definitely swear by temping! Can't wait to meet our healthy little bub! Bub also looks to be due on our 3rd wedding anniversary :)
