BFP

I have to tell someone because I’m super excited tomorrow is our 2nd anniversary and I’ll be able to give him the best gift ever! He doesn’t think his swimmers swim lol and this morning I took a $1 pregnancy test at 3am now I can’t even go back to sleep. I’m 11 dpo maybe 10 not sure of the exact number. This is my first hpt this cycle.. the previous months I start testing at 7 lol. This is our 3rd cycle trying and my first month not really caring if it happens because we are in the process of building a home. Gods timing is so perfect. His first child, my 2nd. Anywho let me get to the good part and tell you what worked for us this month. We tried the FertilitySmart Conceive for women the first time this cycle and miraculously it worked. The previous 2 months I tried fertility blend and he just took his regular vitamins while both of us take a fish oil daily. I also take Evening Primrose oil up to ovulation to help with cramps because since I been off birth control in January I’ve experience heavy cramping during ovulation. One thing that helped with cramping was acupuncture but I didn’t do that this month because it’s expensive. Last month I went on day 2 of my cycle right then and there she got rid of my cramping, mood swings, and heavy bleeding. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. Also, instead of dtd everyday, we dtd every other day leading up to ovulation. I think that worked better for us. As far as symptoms, I didn’t check for them this cycle because the last 2 cycles trying I just knew I was pregnant from cramping and mood swings haha.
