I just wanted to share my story with you guys. This site has gotten me through a lot of TWW's, & I promised myself that WHEN I got my VERY FIRST BFP, that I would share it with you guys. Welp, here it goes:
Me and my DP have been ttc for 10 months, we began to lose hope around the 5th month, & just stopped trying after the 8th. So as you may have guessed, I don't have many symptoms to share with you, BUT I do have a couple symptoms that were strange to me and that I had never heard of as being pregnancy symptoms. Okay, so my last AF was on the 24th of December. I ovulated on the 10th of this month, and the only way that I knew was because when me and DH began to BD that day, I felt that my cervix had changed positions (key sign for me that I'm ovulating).
DPO 1-5: None (either I can't remember, or there weren't many symptoms)
DPO 6-12: Very cotton mouth (not thirsty, just a dry mouth feeling), always EXHAUSTED, woke up around 4oclock every morning to get something to drink, body went from hot to cold in what seemed like every 10 mins, sore BB, lower abdominal nausea, I also noticed that my areolas (the ring around the BB area) were darkening and also getting bigger at the same time. Now here's the weird symptom to me, I had to research it to confirm it, well my bowel movements were green on some days, mucousy on other days, and sometimes both! ( I know gross & TMI, sorry ladies)
DPO 13-16: So up until this point, I pretty much new I was preggers, didn't want to take a hpt to soon, because after seeing so many BFN's, it just makes you don't want to test anymore. Roughly the same symptoms though. Cramps, Kept having the feeling that AF was coming, but she never showed.
DPO 17: (AF 3 days late) I finally mustered up enough hope to take a hpt and low and behold a BFP.!!!!! I used a cheapie with my fmu and the results were almost instantaneous! Its crazy how fast those lines popped up in that window.
I scheduled a doctor's appt for Monday, and I took another hpt this afternoon ANOTHER BFP.!!!!!
>>Here's what I did differently this cycle:
RELAX- Relax ladies, try to find something to keep your mind occupied (easier said that done right ladies?)
PRESEED- Preseed definitely helped! Me and DP used it every time we BD
KNOW YOUR BODY- Know your body, but don't stress too much about it. The charting, and the tracking, and the bbt, UGH it was just too much for me! o_O
PRAY- Prayer is always the answer. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13.
With that being said, I would like to wish everyone the best of luck! **Baby dust and sticky beans loves!**
