34 Years Old. TTC #3 for 11 months. BFP

Hey everyone.... I am on here sharing again for the 2nd time. My first time sharing was after struggling with secondary infertility in 2015. I have a pretty amazing background testimony preceding this pregnancy and if you have time feel free to look it up. Was entered Oct / 2015 and I believe it was titled "our testimony". It is way more action packed than this entry! So hubby and I have been trying for about 11 months after having our 2nd child. Nothing was happening. We sold our home and moved into my parents while waiting for our house to be built and I had noticed I didnt really have a period since April. Not really anything new for me, my cycles are always irregular. I had some spotting at the end of June for 3 days but again, not out of the norm so I didn't think too much about it. Thought it was just another wonky cycle with no ovulation. Anyways so then July 16th I have some light pink spotting when I wipe and it only lasts that night. The next morning I wake up and realize I threw my shoulder out along with my neck and it's so painful! I tell myself I will buy some muscle relaxants on the way home. So I stopped by wal mart and thought what if I am pregnant? Maybe I should rule it out before taking these. So I go home and POS and its blazing a positive line before the control line shows up. I was so happy but I am also confused. How long have I been pregnant? I spotted late June as well so it's hard to tell. I also have had very little symptoms... I have had no nausea, no breast pain just some mild heaviness, but one thing that did strike me as odd was a few weeks ago I felt like there was a lot of pulling and stretching behind my belly button. Something I usually get after 4 months... I attributed it to lifting my toddler and maybe tweaking something and to this day by abdominal muscles are slightly achy and behind my belly button and also since i found out i have had lower aching in my back. Might be because I know I am pregnant now but I swear I noticed more symptoms after finding out. I have a doctor's appointment booked for Monday and hopefully I will be able to find out how far along I am around then:) Anyhow I just feel so thankful after our struggle to be able to be pregnant again. I'm thankful to God and the plans he has for each one of us. I hold the women on this site very dear to my heart and I know how torturous the wait can be. Praying you all see your BFP soon!

BFP after 4 years

Well after 4 years of trying, 2 laparoscopic surgery's and 4 rounds of IVF we finally got our BFP. I used to refer back to this site every single month and therefore want to share my story to give others hope and encourage those that are going through something similar not to give up not to give up. It's a long one i'm afraid. We started trying for a baby a few months after my 29th birthday at the encouragement of my practice nurse. I'd had a long history of painful periods and a specialist had once mentioned i may have endometriosis but at that time the only treatment she would suggest was to go on the pill, which i did although things never really improved. So after 4 months off the pill (and actively trying to conceive) i visited my GP as my period pain was unmanageable. I also had a long list of symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and general abdo pain throughout the month. She referred me to the local hospital were they arranged to do a investigative laparoscopy. This found stage II endometriosis throughout my abdomen. By the time we went back to see the specialist to discuss the results we have been trying for a baby for 7 months however she wasn't particularly concerned however i pushed for my husband to be sent for tests at this point. Two months later we were back at the hospital to discuss my husbands results which showed very poor motility. The consultant felt it was likely this that was stopping us from becoming pregnant and was happy to refer us to the fertility specialist to discuss treatment. In the mean time he wanted me to commence on hormone therapy for 6 months, this would put me in the menopause and would likely have an effect on my system for a year. After doing some research of my own i discovered that although this helps the symptoms of endometriosis it doesn't improve fertility. We have been trying for a baby for 16 months when we had our first appointment in the fertility center. They felt IVF with ICSE would be the best way forward and we started our first cycle in the September and then had a further cycle in the January. Both resulted in a high number of eggs retrieved but nearly all of them didn't make it passed day 3, and the ones that did were of poor quality. It was then decided that i would have a further laparoscopy but this time with ablation to remove the endometriosis deposits. This showed my endometriosis had progressed to stage III/IV however they removed as much as they could. We then tried naturally for 4 months before moving on to our 3rd IVF cycle. This again had similar results to the first 2 rounds however i did have a BFP for a week before beginning to bleed. For our 4th round things started to get a little more serious, they admitted that they shouldn't have pushed on using the same drugs for 3 cycles and decided to put me on a short protocol for this go. The consultant also wanted me to take 3 months of Omega 3 and Co-enzyme. I also read the book 'It starts with the egg' by Rebecca Flett and made some changes to my diet and lifestyle. We did our 4th cycle in November 2016 and retrieved over 30 eggs, because of this the decision was made to freeze all. At the time i was heartbroken, given my history of the eggs deteriorating in quality after day 3 i thought we had wasted all this time and money for nothing. Unfortunately the same thing happened during this cycle with all but 2 eggs surviving to day 5 however the 2 remaining eggs were of a much better quality and were able to be frozen. We planned to return one embryo in February of this year however the embryologist felt that due to my history the chances of twins were slim and encouraged us to thaw and transfer both, which we agreed to. Straight away this cycle felt different, i didn't have any drugs in my system as i'd opted for a natural cycle and felt strong and well. Around 4dp5dt i had a little cramping, on 5dp5dt i felt really tired and a little run down, more cramping but different to period pains and i just didn't *FEEL* premenstrual. On 6dp5dt i had some pink spotting and very naughtily did a test which showed a very faint BFP. Although it was early days i felt positive as i felt well in myself and my cramps were not like my usual pre period ones. I'd say my real symptoms didn't kick in until i was a good week over my missed period date. Fast forward to 7 weeks pregnant and my scan at the fertility clinic confirmed i was pregnant with TWINS!! I was in complete shock but over the moon. I'm now 18 weeks pregnant and both are doing well. I've had a really smooth pregnancy so far with very little symptoms at all. I know it's cliche but honestly do not give up, unless you have gone through the pain of infertility you cannot begin to understand the daily heartache it brings. Wishing each and everyone of you all the best of luck x

BFP 8 DPO!

"Cycle day 22! 8DPO faint line on cheapie! The amount of tests I've done in the last 3 years is ridiculous, and I have never gotten a faint line before so I'm hoping it's not an evap? It came up within a minute or two! I came off BC 3 years ago to try for a baby but found out my partner couldn't have kids after TTC for a year and a half. Me and him ended up breaking up (not for those reasons) I never went back on BC because I liked my body without it! All natural! Me and my current partner decided we wanted a baby and this was the first month actually trying so it's perfect! Although I completely understand the torture of AF turning up each month and crying about it, so my heart is with all you ladies out there who are going through that. Since O I've had tender nipples, heavy and swollen BBs with prominent blue veins, ever so slight nausea but only a few times (last pregnancy sickness/nausea kicked in at 6 weeks) weak legs - I felt so unbalanced. Urinating at least 6-8 times a day which is not normal for me! But the weirdest symptoms that made me feel as if I was, was the stiff and sore neck since 1DPO and the agonising headache today at 8DPO which made me run to the shop to get a test! 4th wee of the day testing with and a faint line comes up!!" I am now 11DPO and my lines on FR are getting darker and yesterday at 10DPO I got a pregnant on a Clearblue Digital! Frequent urination, heavy and full BBs, headaches, dizzy spells/unsteadiness, sneezing, runny nose, queasiness, hunger pangs/nausea, twinges and pinching are my common symptoms at the moment. I'm now questioning whether I'm pregnant with twins!? - I look about 3-4 months pregnant (OH questioning it too, twins on both sides) First Doc appointment on April 26th and my own EDD is Christmas Day!!!

BFP 10DPO!

***BABY DUST TO ALL *** I hope this helps. We’re all different, so the more stories the better, right?! BACKGROUND Baby #1 CLOMID I had gotten married at age 22. By age 26 I was having trouble conceiving- Doc’s diagnosed me with PCOS. January 2008, I was prescribed Clomid. Took it January, February and by March we had kinda “given up” stopped trying so hard. And Bam! BFP, just shy of my 27th birthday. Healthy baby boy . C-section 41 weeks. 9 pounds 5 oz. 12/18/08 Babies #2 & 3. TWINS INJECTABLES IUI (DPO listed at bottom) Started trying again in 2011 on Clomid via OB. Few months nothing. Referred to fertility clinic... 2 rounds of Clomid at clinic/ being monitored/ 2 IUI's. No dice. March 2012, the 3rd and last try, we did injectable hormones in place of Clomid. I also did acupuncture before and after the procedure (it was upstairs of the Clinic), and at night I would listen to pregnancy mediation. It worked, just shy of my 31st birthday! Two Healthy baby boys! C-section 38 weeks. 6 lb 4 oz and 7 lb 4 oz. 12/11/12 My husband passed away when my twins were 6 months old. Last year I got remarried to a wonderful man, God -sent. PRESENT DAY For the last year I used OPK’s and realized that I DO OVULATE! I have erratic cycles.... I’ve been clocking all my physical symptoms for a year. I know my body pretty well at this point. I used progesterone cream to do an ovulation “shut down” and after that I ovulated every cycle! (not monthly. because it was sometimes 60 days. but every CYCLE). I have been taking Ovaboost and Fertile Aid. Womans multi, Viatmin D3, Glucomannan, Cod liver oil, Adrenal Health, Evening primrose cd1-O, PMS pill O-end. Stopped taking them last month just because it was getting to be too much... I hate taking pills and I never remember and i’m inconsistent. It also makes me feel like i’m trying too hard, and it’s too “in my face”. Twice in the last 8 months I got stuck in an annovulatory cycle, at which point I would take the natural progesterone cream and by the 8th day I would have a break through bleed, allowing me to start a new cycle. I was psyched I had this all down to a cycle! It may not be a traditional one but i was bleeding, i was ovulating, and i wasn’t in hormonal agony!! We used this as a method of birth control, seeing as though we weren’t trying for our own baby just yet. April 2016, we unknowingly DTD during my fertile cycle, as It wasn’t until 4 days later I got a +OPK. So we decided to just try that night too. What the heck, we thought.... it won’t happen that fast... I coincidently had a new patient visit with my OB during this week, to talk about my options, and just talk about my history. I was afraid she was going to be quick to tell me I need clomid. But she was super supportive of what I was doing, and she told me that as long as my luteal phase is 14 days --THEY DONT USE THE TERMINOLOGY LATE OVULATION--. She assured me that egg quality isn’t an issue, its if there’s a short luteal phase that’s concerning for viability. She did say because I am going to be 35 next month that if I do decide to use medical help, she would refer me to a clinic for safe measures. But I didn’t need that!!! Baby #4 ALL NATURAL BFP just shy of my 35th birthday!

Clomid BFP 10dpo!! God is Good.

It has been a long time waiting to write this story. It's a crazy one, but bear with me and I'll get to the good stuff :) DH is 36 I'm 32. We've been together for 9 years and married for 5. We've always NTNP. After getting married, we decided to begin "trying". After a year of "trying" I went to my OB/GYN and asked him for help. My cycles are very regular, so we had DH SA (great) and then there was me. HSG test = all clear. On to Clomid. Now, around this time, someone prayed over me and told me I'd have not one but TWO children. I dreamed of being very early in my pregnancy, almost to the point that noone believed me. A doctor was hooking me up to machines and then I woke up. First round of Clomid=BFP. Around 7.5 weeks, I started spotting. I went to get an ultrasound at 8 weeks, no heartbeat. It was my dream. I was heartbroken. I was upset and angry with God for taking this away. I needed some time to recooperate, so I took a long year off and did some soul searching. I prayed more than I've ever prayed and seeked God with my whole heart. During that year, my sister who is very prophetic, told me I would be pregnant at the age of 32. That was two years away!! I continued to have faith anyway. In October of 2014, I had another dream. I dreamed that I was early pregnant again, and that a blonde lady told me " I know how to fix this." Fast forward to 33 weeks pregnant and I woke up. I knew it was time for us to try again. So, I took my last prescription of Clomid in December. NOTHING. In May, I went back to my OB/GYN and he started me back on Clomid 50 mg for three cycles. NOTHING. I didn't understand. Why was this not working? I prayed for healing. In September at my three month checkup, my OB/GYN decided not to move me up to 100 mg (for the fear of multiples because I technically ovulate on my own) and had me do three more cycles of 50 mg. And then he would move me up to 100mg if that didn't work. I was furious and so upset!! That night, I prayed and I cried out to God, "When?? When will this happen Father, I can't wait anymore!" He replied, "February". After lots of prayer, I decided to call a Fertility Clinic and seek more help. On the day of my first appointment, my insurance had issues and I had to cancel. So, I decided to continue the Clomid. Now, I have some co-workers that were seeing this Homeopathic/Spiritual Healing Doctor. I was curious. After lots of prayer, I felt I had to go. Here's where my story REALLY gets interesting. As I sat down with Barry, he asked me what was on my mind. I replied "well, infertility". He asked me how old DH and I were, our names, and if I'd ever been pregnant and what had happened. I told him of my loss at 8 weeks. He stared off for what seemed like an eternity before he finally said "Ok, your husband has stomach parasites. We can fix that easily and really clean up his sperm." Then to me he says "Now, I'm going to tell you something that is very scary, but I don't want you to be scared because we can fix this, ok?" I said "Ok....?" He says "You have two bloodclots that are very close to your heart, probably had them for 10 plus years, like 17 or 18 years old. Did you have dental work or braces at that age?" My heart sunk...."Yes" I replied. "I had a root canal at 17". He says "That's when they formed. They're causing your body to work too hard, thus preventing pregnancy from sticking. You're also highly anemic." I was so stunned at this point. Not only had DH NOT even been there at all, but he had told me that something was wrong with his stomach? DH had a colonoscopy two years ago and they couldn't find anything wrong!! Anemia? I give blood and my iron is always borderline. The Red Cross also had just recently called to ask if I would donate platelets because my count was so HIGH! I was just blown away. He then says " Now get this done, I see twins". I'm like "Excuse Me??????" So, I had two months of vitamins/herbs and iron (blackstrap molasses ewww) to get started on. After two weeks, I felt like a new person! I had energy, I could breathe better! It gets better....... My OB/GYN is a guy, and while I'm sitting at Barry's store, I get a text that said he would be on extended medical leave until mid January! So, I wait until December (knowing that I'm supposed to get bumped up to 100 mg Clomid in January) and I ask what I'm supposed to do. The nurse calls me back and says "We're sticking you with Dr. so and so and they want you monitored, so day 21 progesterone test, day 28 ultrasound and then we will bump you to 100 mg." No lie, I hung up the phone, googled this new Dr. and my jaw hit the floor. SHE was BLONDE. What are the odds? My dream is coming to pass!!!!!

BFP after 20yrs of ttc and am 45.

It has been a very long and torturous journey but I thank God that I am finally writing on this blog. I have been immensely blessed reading other people's stories. Having been waiting for the past 20yrs I can tell you it has been terrible but God has made a name for Himself in my life. I used donor eggs in all my cycles. This is the third ivf and I had said will be the last and thank God it is the last. I had FET on 8th of December 2015. The only thing I did differently in this cycle is Pray, Pray and pray. I had the right people praying with me and tried not to talk about it with family or friends unlike the last times. I entrusted the whole process in God's hands and did my part. After transfer I took things easy but not necessarily bed rest. I went about my business but cautiously. Took pineapple core for the first 5 days of 2ww. I was on the following medication progynova, Prednisone, baby Asprin, Pregnacare, cyclogest and Gestone injection. I had headaches every now and then but nothing major. Cramping for the first 3days after transfer and some tugs and pulls but I was careful not to assume anything because I know that the progesterone I am on can cause some of those symptoms. I was so tempted to test 4 days before my blood test but I asked my husband and he said I should wait till yesterday 22nd of December 2015 when I went for my blood test. I was a wreck yesterday at the hospital. M'y case was very special to the hospital because of my age and how long I have been on this journey. It was the hospital victory yesterday and all glory to God. A lot of dancing and crying yesterday. I am waiting for the HCG result later today. Hopefully the numbers will be as high as expected. I transferred 2 beautiful blastocyst but I am expecting that one will split into two identical boys while the other will be our little girl. This is our desire and God can do all things. I will update us on the progress of my pregnancy. I live in Germany but came to Nigeria to do this ivf. It has been a roller coaster but am happy it ended in praise. If you have been waiting for a long time please do not give up. God comes late when He wants to come big. Baby dust to all. Jules

BFP with timed intercourse and thin uterine lining after miscarriages and Asherman's Syndrome diagnosis

I've waited almost 5 months to share my BFP story because I wanted to make sure I didn't miscarry again (that happened to me on this site). I am now 6 months pregnant. My goal in sharing this story is to give hope to other people who have had similar experiences with ovulation issues (possible PCOS diagnosis), miscarriage, Asherman's syndrome and multiples. It's too complicated to give all of the details (yes, I used pre-seed, ovulation predictor kits, every kind of pregnancy test, charted my temperature, etc.), but here's a summary: November 2013 - started trying to conceive naturally with my husband, but noticed I wasn't getting my period or ovulating February 2014 - took clomid prescribed by OB March 2014 - first BFP on first round of clomid April 2014 - found out that it was a blighted ovum at a 7 week ultrasound and had an uncomplicated D&C at 8 weeks June 2014 through January 2015 - took clomid 6 more times total, noticed that my periods were extremely light and almost non-existent, complained multiple times to OB about my lack of period, but was told it was not an issue November 2014 - second BFP which turned out to be a chemical pregnancy (got my non-existent period about a week late) January 2015 - started seeing an REI for infertility work up, everything looked normal except for my uterine lining; on a sonohysterogram, the REI thought I had a polyp and scheduled a hysteroscopy to remove it February 2015 - diagnosed with moderate Asherman's Syndrome (aka intrauterine scarring) during the hysteroscopy; cause of Asherman's Syndrome was the D&C from the previous year (this is a rare complication from an early pregnancy D&C) March 2015 - second hysteroscopy to treat the scarring April 2015 - third hysteroscopy to check whether more scarring should be removed, was given the green light to try to conceive again after taking estrogen to build up my lining for another month May 2015 - induced period with progesterone, then used femara (aka letrozole) and follistim and an ovidrel trigger shot to try to conceive through timed intercourse; at the doctor's visit before taking the trigger shot I was told that there was very little chance of getting pregnant that cycle even though I had lots of mature follicles because my uterine lining was only measuring 3.1mm (and 5mm the following day - they made me check again) and that I would likely need another hysteroscopy; we did the trigger shot anyway and had timed intercourse 36 hours later... June 2015 - third BFP Details of third BFP: DPO 7 - breast tenderness DPO 10 - partial ovarian torsion (very painful), generally did not feel well DPO 11 (aka DPT 13) - BFP on my 35th birthday, pregnancy line was quite dark DPO 12 - extremely sore breasts, hurt to shower, this lasted on and off for several weeks DPO 13 - lots of spotting and cramping (this also lasted on and off for several weeks), serious paranoia about having another chemical pregnancy DPO 14 - HCG level (from blood test at doctor's office) was 576; upon reflection, this was probably the first indication that there were multiples DPO 16 - HCG level had more than doubled to 1,317 7 weeks - at the first ultrasound, I discovered there were 3 heartbeats; 2 of them were identical twins that would share a placenta but had separate sacs; I had a pretty significant bleed on and off for about 3 days right after the ultrasound and was again paranoid about miscarriage, but all 3 heartbeats were still there at subsequent doctor's visits 11 weeks - CVS testing of both placentas for genetic issues 13 weeks - multifetal pregnancy reduction of the identical twins based on decision that it would be too risky to carry all of them, I still think about them everyday Can't wait to meet my baby. Don't give up.

BFP!! 8dp5dt

This is my second attempt to post my BFP, the first time I tried was on the day after I got my first very faint positive on 8dp5dt when I started spotting.. I didnt do it then because I got terrified that I was actually having a CP as I already had one about 18 months ago... so i decided to wait a bit longer before I shared the news. Background... Me (39 going on 40 next month) DH (41) I have a wonderful daughter (11yrs) from previous marriage, got pregnant by accident and thought it was extremely easy to get pregnant... life has a way of showing you the truth! After remarrying started ttc right away as I had just turned 36 and wanted to have my kids not that far apart... again life showing me the reality of how thing work!!! We tried for 1.5 years and nothing, OBY-GYN send us to fertility specialist... how dare he??? I'm so healthy and fertile!! punch in face number one, You have your uterus covered in polyps, cannot hold a pregnancy with uterus like that you need to get a hysteroscopy. :-S Afterwards doctor recommended at list to try IUI, but he recommends IVF because of my age... again I was in disbelief! I'm healthy, I exercise, eat properly, age with grandma!!@#$$@! so we tried non assisted IUI... BFN of course! I was an idiot and doing IVF made me feel sick and wasn't! so we only did the one IUI and since it didnt work I thought that's fine, because they couldn't find anything wrong with us, except the polyps and they removed them... Sure enough 2 months later I was late :-D I always have been a swiss clock when it comes to AF... so I tested the they after I missed my period and got a faint BFP!!! In your face fertility doctors!!! I'm pregnant as I knew I would be! made my appointment with my regular OBY-GYN for the following week... and just 5 days after my " good news" I started bleeding... of course panic and called the doctor to go in early... when I arrived the spotting was not as light as early in the morning and the nurse made sure she pointed that out, as if I couldn't see the freaking pee cup all tinted with blood and my heart falling into pieces....:-( The doctor said we dont even get a positive on the urine test are you sure you got a positive... i was really frustrated with that doctor's office because of their lack of empathy!!!! basically the next days was full blown period that lasted 7 days! so i'm pretty sure there was something in there that just didnt stick. I decided ( my DH had no choice) that we would continue trying naturally and if by 39 we didnt get pregnant, we would visit the fertility doctors again They received us with the same positive attitude as usual, now I said I want IVF right away! doctor was on board but warned me about the insurance, and not to get frustrated... of course that didnt happened I got frustrated when my insurance had a maximum life expense and requires that you do at least 3 IUIs before you move to IVF, now 2 years after the first time I saw them my AMH was lower than expected for my age... so basically chances getting smaller and silly insurance have the same requirements regardless of your values. the only good nes is that they counted the IUI we had 2 years ago as the first one. Ready for IUI #2, pop me with drugs and get me ready to be pregnant!!! :) oops we can't, you now have cysts in your ovaries, that are producing hormones, and we cannot give more because we risk making them bigger... you need to be on bcp :-( :-( 2 cycles came and go until finally those things started to go away. Now ready and on Clomid, only one follicle with the right measurments... good sperm count... now 2ww... my boobs were so sore that anything touch them and I felt like they were going to break... hopes getting high I'm having symptoms! result: BFN. Ok, now IUI#3, same drill, BFN... but finally we are ready to go for IVF, right? well no, because after the IUI one of follicles still there and is now cyst almost 35mm big... so you have to take bcp again! One week on bcp, cyst still there and getting stronger!! I hate you cyst!!! doctor put me on double bcp per day, i was definitevely feeling the hormone crazyness... but finally after full cycle on double dosis the cyst stopped producing hormones, but was still there same size, but my doctor, says it's ok we can go ahead and start you on your IVF meds. My cycle was a little aggressive, I had to take 3 vials of Menopur + 325 units of Follistim and Omnitrope 5ml per day, after a few days values still low for the amount of drugs so I was bumped to 4 vials of menopur and 375 of follistim, kept Omnitrope the same. Stims lasted 15 days!!! after breaking the bank to pay for all this drugs, my insurance called t say that I have exhausted my limit and now everything is out pf pocket. You know relaxing times... Finally we start seeing progress and i produced about 11 follicles, however about 4-5 were below 15mm... a couple were already 25mm so by day 15 we were done and now get ready for retrieval.

BFP after AF (Heavy bleeding and severe cramps) *******UPDATE*****

******WE'RE HAVING TWINS!!!!!!!!********* Measuring 6w 5d we saw the 2 lil beans (It was actually 2 holes in my uterus lol). Sonogrammer said the cramping and bleeding made sense as some mothers who carry twins experience this early on! Back for another scan in 2 weeks (this i so exciting). we're absolutely shocked (but i had a sneaky feeling i was carrying 2 cus my symptoms made no sense lol) Just to let u know my fatigue is the same, my hair has stopped falling out (feels lush and thick), my boobs have quadrupled, i have to pee every 1 hour and eat every 2 hours and i look HUGE! Also have waves nausea. Thanks everyone for reading and following. I pray you all get that much wanted BFP :-) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just want to thank this forum, as I'm a regular stalker and symptom spotter hehe. This is for all the GES's (Google Every Symptom-ers) and those who've had a bleed and thought it was their period. Bleeding accompanied with severe cramps that had me running to A&E thinking I was dying. When I went, the doctors couldn't find the cause and sent me home. Next day I had a scan and nothing was found in my uterus, just blood clots. This was the day my AF was due which was 16th June. FINALLY after 2 weeks of insanity (i convinced myself that either I had fibroids, tumors or an unknown illness but i deffo wasnt preggo) I got my BFP on FRER. FAINT line but still pretty much there! Ive had 3 miscarriages and 1 successful pregnancy. The weird thing is im pregnant around the same time, I was 3 years ago! So I tracked ovulation according to Ovia Fertility and Period Tracker. But Ovia Fertility was wrong based on CM so according to Period Tracker I ovulated on 2nd June. Here goes ladies. I DTD on 27, 28, 30, 4 & 5th June. Honestly guys I didn't think i was in for a chance Cus we didn't DTD on ovulation day.
