Sept 2014, would have marked two years that DH and I have ttc. I am happy to report that we were successful in 23! What a JOURNEY! I know more about my body, and it's cyclical processes than I have ever cared to, but hey whatever it took! I am 30, my sweetpie is 36, and our DS just turned 9. 23 months ago it was time to try again, and that was the first time that I have ever tracked anything in regards to my cycles. I quickly found out they were 36 days, 28 days, 48 days, just all over the place with an average of 34 days. every month, I tested a day or two before af, and it was a BFN. I used the opk 2 months because it was a tedious process, I became bored with temping, and charting as well, the bd wasn't fun anymore it was a chore. So I happily gave those up too! I focus on being happy, I dropped from a size 14 and am now an 11, my DH dropped 50lbs, and we're just eating healthier and working out. We focused on being in love, and friends, we were going happily along until last month on cd 19 I noticed GLOBS of Ewcm, more than I remember seeing an a long time and I was "heated. I quickly remembered that we had bd on cd 14, but I advised DH that we had plans that night as well. He was just happy to see me so "happy". I am 99% sure that O'd cd 20 but app says cd 21. we bd cd 22. So going off of my gut this is how it goes..
1 and 2dpo=nothing
3dpo=sneezing, no other sinus issues just sneezing from that day to this
5dpo=nausea after every meal, from then on briefly
6dpo=sore bb's twingy pain in left ovary, green bm? hmmm
7dpo=full bb's? I shake it off because I am a double d already, sore veiny bb's, that for sure was different from other months, green bm again, odd, crampy in low back
8dpo=flushed, green bm , ok there may be something to this? ovary pain, sore full bb's for sure this time
9dpo=flushed, sore bb's
10dpo=less sore bb's, soreness goes away near start of af, starting to be less hopeful
11dpo=restless legs? new and noticeable, might be something, pulling sensation behind bellybutton, definitely new
12dpo=very sore nips, what the? not much else, guess I'm out
13dpo=nothing to note, waiting on af
14dpo=warm, severe cotton mouth drank alot of water and couldn't quench it,sneezing-if my o date was right, I would have started here, but didn't test and waited since app is right on the money with af start dates.
15dpo= dawned on me that there had been, no spotting, usually 2-4days prior to af, gassy, dry mouth again, crampy all night, guess I'll start tomorrow like app projected
16dpo=app says I should start this day, refrained from testing, honestly too tired of the let down. I get sad and DH promised that if it didn't happen this time, we'd go for fertility testing. sore nips and bb's, not bloated even a little, pain behind belly button again, my whole body aches, like after a hard work out, warm, lightest pink spot around 6pm. cried. although it wasn't dark brown an red as usual I thought I was out. I texted DH at work and told him. but then nothing else happened that evening or over night...
17dpo, waited alllllll day, no major symptoms, no more spotting, but bb's are sore, then after lunch severe nausea, sneezing, cramping, acid reflux, and lots of saliva, major fullness and soreness, sore skin, at 1 day late, I had had to get it the disappoint over with. around 6 I went the store bought two tests, even though it was th evening, I tested as soon as I got home. I turned to put the stick down and there were two brigh red lines!! I was shocked, then cried, then nauseous, so I laughed. our wedding anniversary is tomorrow, and I think I have the PERFECT gift!
I extend the same fertility prayer that we prayed to your family, be blessed!
