I just got my test results back from the doctor, so barring any unforeseen issues between now and Monday when I get another beta taken, I am officially preggers! I wanted to share my story with you because this site has helped me through so many ups and downs, and I want to pay it forward. After a year of being off birth control, "trying but not trying" then "trying" then having some issues with my cycles, I've realized anything can happen. Whether you're taking a break, actively checking every single possible symptom, or just letting it happen naturally, anything is possible.
This month was our first month using Pre-Seed, my third month temping. We bd'd 3 days leading up to O. DH and I had both been under a ton of stress at our jobs, so I really wasn't thinking this would be the month. My most noticeable symptom that was not normal for me was fatigue. I was so.tired.
1-3 DPO - sore bbs (this happens slightly before and after ovulation regularly)
4-9 DPO - creamy CM, sore bbs
9 DPO - negative HPT; didn't think it would be positive, was just curious
10 DPO - streak of blood on panties, creamy CM, sore bbs
11 DPO - brown spotting mixed with creamy CM, sore bbs, fatigue
12 DPO - brown spotting mixed with creamy CM continues, sore bbs, fatigue, think I'm out
13 DPO - brown spotting continues (less than previous and only in AM), creamy CM continues, cramps, fatigue, waiting for AF
14 DPO - brown spotting lightens up a LOT - only noticed it in the AM, cramping, creamy CM, fatigue. Get incredibly tipsy off of one, small drink, this is when I thought something was definitely up.
15 DPO - same as previous, hubs notices my fatigue, decide to test in AM
16 DPO - BFP FMU
20 DPO - BFP confirmed with blood test
Hang in there, ladies!
