So I am still in total shock about this. Just got a pretty solid bfp like an hour ago! I have been stalking this site for a few weeks, and was a tad discouraged because I didn't have really any symptoms. So don't give up hope!
My last period was 41 days ago (I know). I have fairly regular cycles which last about 32 days, and, being incredibly new at this (1st cycle ttc) naturally assumed I ovulated on cd 18. Clearly wrong. For our first cycle we used preseed, and opks. However. We never got a positive opk. We both take daily vitamins (b-complex, c, multi,omega), and try to work out regularly. I also kept hips elevated after bd for 15 minutes.
Cd15-22: BD every day, but negative opk. Never got ewcm. Still getting over a bout of food poisoning, so not eating very much. Stopped working out.
Cd23-25: Nothing, but cm became more slippery
Cd24 & cd26: BD for fun, but negative opk (just figured it was an anovulatory cycle).
*due to how late I got a bfp, I can only presume I ovulated on cd26/27?
1-5dpo: (cd28-32) Nothing. I was really tired, but that's about it. Bfn.
6dpo: Noticed my boobs were getting fuller, but not painful. In hindsight this was probably an indicator, as I usually have a solid week of horribly painful boobs. That night I got what felt like AF cramps. Pretty strong AF cramps. Finally! I can get started in cycle 2!
7dpo: Aching ovaries. The dull ache kept switching back and forth. No AF. Weird. Bfn. Ordered an ovulation kit from EPT for next month.
9dpo: Nothing during the day. That night after a pee, I got one streak of pink! Didn't want to get my hopes up since I was already on cd36.
10dpo: Decided to start temping (again, I know), and noted it was 36.9 in the morning. Bfn.
11dpo: Bfn. Boobs getting fuller. No pain.
12dpo: Woke up with sore throat and stuffy nose. Should I be excited about this? No. Just getting sick. Bfn.
13dpo: Still sick and stuffed up. Made a doctors appt for this Saturday because I was positive I must have an ovarian cyst again, which was extending my cycle. Decided not to test, and had given up.
14dpo: Boobs really big and start feeling uncomfortable in a bra. Scratchy almost. While at work I feel like my uterus is really warm and kind of crampy. Very different. Go home and take off my bra immediately. One look at them (huge and veiny!) and I ran out and bought a first response. Bfp immediately!!!
Most random cycle. I didn't start taking temps until well into my cycle. Noticed that they are between 36.8-37. Nothing to compare to though. My cervix seemed low and closed the entire time, so this wasn't much help. Although today, right before bfp, it was quite far to the right, which was the only time it moved this cycle! I have not had any nausea or much acid reflux, or anything else.
Don't give up - you're not out until you're out! Xx
