I've been stalking this site since we started trying again in September. I miscarried in August after a 12 week pregnancy, it was horrible =( We've been trying since and I've used EVERYTHING to increase our chances, temping, OPK's, Clomid, Preseed, checking cervix, you name it! I know everyone says "you'll get pregnant when you stop trying" (which I HATE, because you can't not try, especially after a loss!), but I'm proof that the statement is NOT TRUE!
1DPO: Temp 97.75, watery CM. AF-like cramps, pain on left side (were I O'd from), gas, bloated.
2DPO: Temp 97.9, sticky CM. Right side cramping now?? Craving SALT, soooo hungry!
3DPO: Temp 98.24, lots of super creamy CM. Really bad AF cramps, gas, tired.
4DPO: Temp 98.28, lots of super creamy CM. Light AF cramps, bloated.
5DPO: Temp 97.86 (light temp drop), creamy CM with tiny bit of pink spotting
6DPO: Temp 98.23, creamy CM. gas, bloody nose, pulls & pinching on right side low back pain, aching (IMPLANTATION?)
7DPO: Temp 98.43, dry CM with a tiny bit of brown spotting. Still craving salt like crazy, light AF cramping, going #2 a lot, normally constipated during TWW (TMI, sorry!)
8DPO: Temp 98.79 (woah temp spike!), creamy CM, wait is that a bit of EWCM too? Weird. Drank last night at 10 year reunion (feel guilty now), really bad AF cramps, thinking the witch is coming early, so bad I had to leave work! Maybe this was actually implantation? BFN with mid-day urine =(
9DPO: Temp 98.5, dry CM. Came down with a sore throat & cough (this happened with my last pregnancy too!). Left armpit sore, no other symptoms...Another BFN with FMU, really feel like I'm out now =(
10DPO: Temp 98.56, creamy CM with a bit of EWCM again?! Sore throat is bad now, both ovaries feel like they are burning!?? After burning stops, left side starts aching. Wondering what kind of circus is going on in there?! Achy AF cramps in bed at night, told hubby we were out. Too scared to test today, decided to wait for the witch to show.
11DPO: Temp 98.48 (weird bc it usually drops by now for AF), dry CM. Woke up and AF cramps are gone, weird. Checked cervix (it had been high the whole luteal phase), it actually dropped today like it does before AF so I KNEW I was out. I stomped around the bath room and decided to POAS (Wondof) just to prove to myself that I was out...looked quick and it was negative, came back, WAIT a light line is there?!?? Took another test, low and behold two beautiful (but light) lines! Danced around the house, kissed the floor and THANKED GOD for this beautiful blessing after our terrible loss.
*Went for HCG blood test two hours after testing, levels were 24, praying they increase and this baby sticks!
What we did different this month:
I was already charting temps, using OPK's, Preseed, and checking cervix, but this month I focused on really ENJOYING BD with hubby. This was also my first month trying Clomid! Last few months I was so worried about getting pregnant that I forgot about enjoying the process =) Oh, I also at pineapple core from 1DPO-5DPO, not sure if this helped?
Pink & brown tinted CM between 5-7DPO, weird "implantation pain" at 6DPO, strong AF cramping, EWCM in luteal phase.
Also, proof that GOD is good, 2 hours after I got my BFP, an old co-worker (who I haven't spoke to in 2 years) texted me and said she had a dream last night that I had a little boy with lots of blonde hair and blue eyes (CRAZY!), also my sister told my mother the morning of my BFP (before I even knew) that she wanted to buy me a "congrats" card because she just KNEW I was pregnant...I told her the news 2 hours later....those can't just be coincidences!
Baby dust & prayers for everyone!
