I am 28, DH is 25, we have been TTC for 11 months. Last week my only sister in law announced she was pregnant with her second baby. Two days ago my little sister and her husband came over to announce they were pregnant with a honeymoon baby. I cried for 24 hours, then decided to get over it and just be happy for them.
Hubby and I prayed everyday together last month that God would grant us a child soon, even that month. So when this month began and the two other family pregnancies were announced I felt a little rejected by God and prayed a little less often. I know... great plan right? I did cry out to him several times to remember me and not leave me alone in pain. I read a book called Supernatural Childbirth that taught me to pray the promises of God from scripture and claim his blessings and promises to his people of fruitfulness on my life.
We were at my aunts lake house when I ovulated, and I got 2 positive ovulation tests on cd 16 and 17. I think I ovulated CD 17 or 18. I didn't have my thermometer that week, so I will assume it was CD 17 but I could be off a day. We BD CD 16 and 18.
I used Preseed as an external lube only this month and didn't use the applicator. I was swimming a lot and very relaxed during O week. I never did get EWCM, just watery for a few days before and after O.
1-5DPO Nothing of interest. Around 3 DPO I started using progesterone cream at night in case I was pregnant to sustain pregnancy.
6-13DPO Sore nipples. Same as last month. (Progesterone cream?)
Somewhere around 6-9DPO I started getting in the mood for eating pickles. I ate THREE on 7DPO. Wasn't HUGE craving, just sounded yummy. We've had the big jar in the fridge for a month and I hadn't eaten any. I must've eaten 7 or 8 that week.
11DPO BFN No symptoms except sensitive nipples, drank a glass of wine after dinner because most people have BFP by 11DPO on here. Took Metformin that night after the wine and felt nauseated till I fell asleep. Assumed it was the wine and metformin disagreeing.
12DPO Two of the faintest Wondfo pregnancy tests I've ever seen. Thought I had a bad batch that was giving me evap lines. Wouldn't even show up on a photo. Negative Digital Clear Blue.
Boobs started aching this night and I noticed when I leaned on the washing machine they felt almost like they were bloated and achy. Not bad at all though, nothing like ladies on here describe it.
13DPO This morning, took a digital with first morning urine, fully expecting a BFN again. When Lo and Behold... BFP! PREGNANT sat there proudly on the screen.
I cried and cried. God is so merciful and good to me to not leave me barren while my sister and sister in law are pregnant. My sister and I have dreamed of this our entire lives.
May God be so gracious to each one of you and thank you for your stories, you have kept me hopeful and in good company while I struggled to hope and wait. I would recommend the book Supernatural Childbirth if you are a Christian woman. It really gave me a new perspective of the power we hold before the throne of God because he loves us and hears us when we cry.
