After trying for 3 months, I decided this month I'd be more relaxed and just have sex whenever but I still had my plans. DH on the other hand, he decided he'd "try harder" and so we had sex a lot! I used Fertility Friend and this month, just like a previous month, it gave me a High for sex. I have 1 five year old and no history of m/c.
Things I tried differently this month:
Soy Isoflavones (SI) cd2-6 (80/80/120/120/160mg my attempt to produce a strong quality egg)
Preseed (During every bd, mostly as lube, not in the tube)
Instead Softcups (I used this during every bd, even when I wasnt fertile, just in case, most times I used a little bit of preseed in them)
Selenium (100mg mostly a benefit for sperm, but heard it helps with implantation)
Prenatal Gummies (previous months I just used multi-vitamins)
Baby Aspirin (81mg every other day starting on 1DPO only until a few days after my bfp b/c I was spotting)
Vitamin D3 (5000mg pill every other day)
Things I always used:
Calcium Magnesium Zinc (1 tablet every night)
OPKs (Wondfos and CB digi because I like to see the smiley face)
I normally O between CD 13 and cd16, but around cd 11, I had no indication that O was coming, I was dry and was a little nervous thinking that the SI delayed my O. We'd already been going at it like rabbits and I wasnt sure we'd be able to take any more so I brought some Vit-D3 as I read that it can help with O. I started taking it that day, every other day and by CD 13 I had more CM and that night I had an almost positive OPK, on CD14 I had a very positive OPK
CD 12 - BD, Dry CM
CD 13 - BD, Wet CM, almost positive opk at night
CD 14 - BD, EWCM, positive OPK all day. Initially FF designated this as my O day but later changed it to CD 15 at 4DPO
CD 15 - O DAY... well Night (it always happen at night). No BD because we were a bit tired. Wet CM/EWCM, positive OPK during the day, negative at night (I always have a 36 hour surge). My cervix hasnt gotten soft for O since month 1. Temp increased slightly
CD 16/1 DPO - Dry CM, Cramps, backache, Sore boobs, Temp increase above coverline
2-3DPO - Creamy CM. Cramps, backache, sore & bigger boobs, temp increased. Crosshairs on 3DPO
4DPO - Normal temp drop (not below coverline)
5DPO - Temp rise, Creamy CM, Cervix MMC, Sore Boobs, little cramps on right side
6DPO - HUGE temp drop, Creamy CM, Cervix LFC, almost at coverline
7DPO - Another HUGE temp increase, Creamy CM, Cramps mostly on right side, more sore boobs (mainly tingly, zinging on upper and sides of boobs)
8DPO - Sticky CM, Cramps on right side, tingly/zings on upper/sides of boobs
9DPO - Same as 8DPO. BUUUT couldnt resist the urge to POAS... Thought I had an evap in the morning. But was definitely a BFP at night on Wondfo.
10DPO - Creamy CM, cramps, sore boobs, another BFP on wondfo and FRER. BFN on $tree brands (VeriQuick & Assure)
11DPO - Told DH. He was excited. Creamy CM, cramps, boobs arent as sore and feel like they went back down in size like before AF, but definitely BFP!!! on Wondfo and FRER. BFN on $tree brands. I went to get a betas drawn. Noticed brown spotting when I wiped.
12DPO - Same as before but super light BFP on $tree brands. Got results with a BHCG level of THREE! WTH! I'm confused and the doc. Must be a chemical, I'm so devastated. More brown spotting when I wiped. Late at night had a small amount of dark red blood come out. I put on a pad because I'm fully expecting AF to come tonight.
13DPO - AF would typically arrive today but pad was dry. Confused b/c BFPs are getting darker on all brands. Get another beta done. Still brown spotting only when I wipe occasionally. Boobs are starting to get tingly on sides and top (so confused!)
14DPO - All tests are +++, even the CB Digi said Pregnant. Betas came back at a 13 (doc considers anything over 5 Pregnant! Doc wasnt concerned because my levels more than doubled and said that I'm just very early pregnant. I honestly think either something is off with whatever they use to test betas, I had a vanishing twin or something went fairly wrong during initial implantation. My boobs got suddenly got bigger again and are tingly on sides and top. NO SPOTTING TODAY!
15 - 17DPO - I'm hungry, tired, crampy and my tests have definitely gotten darker. NO MORE SPOTTING!
It was a roller coaster and due to these ever progressing HPTs, we are not as concerned anymore.
