I've loved reading the BFP stories on this forum since we started TTC in July 2013, and wanted to share my own. I'm 30 and DH is 34. We are both healthy (I'm a bit overweight but athletic and work out regularly), and I've always been regular. I was on BC for 1.5 years before getting married, but my cycle never really fluxuated by more than a few days after I went off.
We've always used OPKs to gauge timing, and tried to BD every other day in my fertile window (it didn't happen some months, but we tried). I thought I was pregnant EVERY month, and was so disappointed when AF showed up. We started using Pre-Seed in December, but still nothing.
My doctor wanted us to try naturally for a year before considering other options, so this month, we decided to go all out and try a little bit of everything to maximize our chances. I started taking FertiliTea and DH took FertilAid for men (both bought off Amazon). We only took these for the 7-8 days leading up to ovulation, then stopped. I loved the tea and DH had no complaints about taking two FertilAid pills a day (neither of us had any side effects).
Here's how everything went daily:
CD8-9 Negative OPKs
CD10-11 Negative OPKs, BD Daily (this was new for us...)
CD12 Positive OPK and light CM, BD
CD13 Negative OPK, BD
CD14-20 No sympoms at all
CD21-23 Light cramping and soreness in my back, and some tugging/pulling sensations in my lower abdominal area. Other than that, nothing. It was honestly no different than in months when I wasn't pregnant. I usually symptom spot but was determined not to get ahead of myself.
CD24 Took a Wondfo test around 7pm and it looked negative. But something kept catching my eye so I left it on the sink for a few hours. I came back a few hours later to brush my teeth before bed, and the line was now faint but there. I posted to the POAS forum and got lots of others that thought it may be a BFP so I was tentatively excited!
CD25 Took a FRER and CB Digital in the PM. Had a faint second line on the FRER after a couple of minutes, and a "Pregnant 1-2 Weeks" on the CB Digital after 3 minutes. Happy dance all around the bathroom!!! Text DH and told him to hurry home :)
I have no idea if the daily BD had anything to do with it, or if the FertiliTea/FertilAID helped (we also continued to use PreSeed), but we are thrilled! I've posted our progression photos below. I'm still waiting for the second line to get darker, but am praying for a sticky bean!
Best of luck to everyone TTC. I know it is an emotional rollercoaster. I tried to start a new book or plan extra activities with my DH and friends during the two week wait so I didn't go completely batty... :)
