I decided to post my ttc story since it is not one you hear too often. Last year in June, me and DH found out we were expecting our second child. We were beyond excited to welcome our new bundle of joy to our family of 3 (5 year old son). After each visit with our OB GYN, something new was revealed at each appt. It turned out that our baby girl had anencephaly. On Oct. 1, 2014, we delivered her at 12:37 a.m. at just 18 weeks. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to deal with, and still is. After months of waiting to try again we decided last cycle that we would start trying to have another baby. Since my menstrual period in March which began on the 23rd and lasted 3 days, I started looking for signs and symptoms, anything to hold onto to convince me that we conceived this time around.
Starting on April 11th, I began charting symptoms, and cm even though it was later in my cycle and I should have started from the beginning.

CD 9: Today 5/1/15 Huge increase in CM, Creamy/sticky temp this morning was high at 97.5 so I thought forsure that I was Ovulating soon. Took another OPK and it came out positive. Got a dollar store test and just for the fun I thought i'd take it. Within the time frame a faint line showed up almost instantly. I thought forsure it was a false positive. My DH swore that I was PG. I thought impossible because I just had a period. I took a shower and tried to forget about it. obviously, the anticipation was too much so I took out my FRER digital and sure enough it came out with +YES. I'm shocked, excited, nervous, confused all in one. I was sooo tired today, my stomach felt weird like indigestion and Im having a lot of dizzy spells.
I will keep everyone updated.
