I promised myself that after getting my first ever bfp I would post my symptoms from my TWW here.
My DH and I had been TTC #1 since June of 2011. In January 2012 at my yearly physical I
mentioned we were ttc and had blood work done - everything came back perfect and my doctor
ordered a semen analysis for DH.
In March we received devastating news that with less than 2 million sperm (and really more like less
than 200,000) would probably never conceive on our own. I frantically researched IVF while still
charting and tracking cycle #9.
I got my positive OPK on CD16 and also got a peak reading on my clear blue easy fertility monitor
that day. I Oed on Cycle day 17!!! Which is actually early for me as I don't ovulate consistently,
its usually anywhere from day 15-24 with an average of CD19 according to Fertility Friend.
Our BD schedule was O day, two days prior and three days prior - nothing out of the ordinary..
1dpo - Sore nips, a good consistent sign that I ovulated, dry cm
2dpo - Sore nips, pretty bad headache, dry cm
3dpo - Sore nips, start of a three day migraine, dry cm
4dpo - Sore nips, day two of three day migraine, dry cm, frequent need to pee!!
5dpo - Weird dreams all night, dry cm
6dpo - First day of creamy cm
7dpo - Breasts tender when pressed (NEVER HAD THIS BEFORE!!), dry cm
8dpo - Tender breasts, weird dreams, frequent need to pee, hot flashes, head is killing me
9dpo - Due to odd symptoms, test with wondfo and FRER and get two BFP!!! - dry cm, cramps,
tender breasts, feeling hot, headache on/off
10dpo - Darker lines! First day of creamy cm that has continued since.. cramps, tender breasts,
hot flashes, nausea
11dpo - Same as 10dpo
12dpo - Same as 11dpo and super emotional. A commercial makes me cry.
13dpo - TODAY!! 4/8/12.. AF is due tomorrow and I am PRAYING like crazy that she doesn't show!!
I don't know why this month worked when all the others before failed. I have to thank God first of
all for giving us this miracle. With DH's SA numbers, there’s no way we could be here without a
blessing. Would also like to thank everyone else here for giving me symptoms to analyze like crazy.
Seeing that I wasn't the only one with or without a certain symptom gave me hope! And I would also
like to thank the lovely ladies at The Mommy Playbook for being there for me the past nine months.
The December Due Date Club is going to be a blast.
BABIES FOR CHRISTMAS!! Does it get any better than that?? :)
