What's an IC Test? I took these all last month and I never got a line.

Ok here's SMU alongside the dried FMU test. These are WONDFO pink dye not IC (although I don't know what that means exactly). Help!

Simone - how did you get on at the weigh in?

Becca - great to have you back so glad your giving it another go!

I can see something on both tests but they look like evaps as there doesn't seem to be any colour in them?

Hope everyone else is doing well?

AFM - I'm CD2 and ordered some Preseed to try this month as I never have EWCM and thought it can't hurt to try as I've read good things about it. It comes with some pregnancy tests and OPKs so they should arrive by the weekend.
If the last few months are anything to go by I should be due to ovulate the weekend after this one so I shall be temping, Preseeding and OPKing lol.

Hi lovelies, I'M BACK!! I was gone for a while there to give myself some time. For anyone who is new, I'm Kiera and I'm 20 years old!
But here is a quick update with what happened with me! (This is going to be long)
So I was taken out of work due to severe depression, anxiety & stress. I was given 4 weeks off of work due to terrible suicidal thoughts and unfortunately tried taking my own life on June 1st. It all got too much for me with the whole TTC as well so we stopped trying. In May I spotted/bled three times that month and had no idea what was going on with my body. Some of you may remember that my doctor was certain I wasn't ovulating. But on June 3rd I finally got a proper period and it lasted like a normal period. My husband and I decided after June 1st and it's events that we would NTNP and see what happens. (Best thing ever). I stopped temping, stopped taking Maca root, stopped drinking Pom juice and let my body go everything by itself.
I was on medical leave from work from May 16th - June 13th and was supposed to be going back on June 14th and I did! But as soon as I walked through my office door, I was laid off. It was unfortunate but I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. Everyone that was close to me knew how much I hated that job so I was happy tbh. Excited for new opportunities!
In my time properly TTC, I have never once gotten a positive OPK, like ever. But on CD 16 this cycle I started feeling a lot of movement in my ovaries while walking and decided that night after BD to take an OPK and low and behold, it was positive. The next morning, I decided to take another one and it was a BLARING positive. I literally cried, not even joking haha! I knew I wasn't ovulating due to stress of everything that went on in my whole life last year and with my job. I had a positive until the morning CD 18 and in the afternoon that day, it was negative so I know I would hopefully be ovulating in the next couple of days. In my previous months, my OPK'S would start getting darker at CD23 maybe and I would have 38+ day cycles. So I kept trying to stay positive.
Right from the gecko, I kinda had a feeling I was pregnant but didn't want to get my hopes up. As soon as I ovulated, my boobs and nipples were burning. Like seriously so sore. I was bloated and very gassy from 6DPO and onwards. 10DPO came and I decided to test with an FRER just to see if anything would show up. I honestly was talking to myself and wondering why I was doing this because nothing was going to show up. But low and behold, after 3 minutes a LINE SHOWED UP. I thought I was dreaming, literally. I cried and I just couldn't believe it! I sent it to my hubby and for the first time ever, he admitted he definitely saw something!
I tested quite a bit to see progression and got my first 'Pregnant 1-2 weeks' on a digital on 11DPO! (I'll post a picture of the progression) Which is super early tbh and I was so happy.

So for anyone who feels like giving up, PLEASE DON'T. I honestly felt like it too but NTNP was honestly the best thing for me. I couldn't believe how much stress could really affect your body. I kept getting angry and people who kept telling me to relax and let things happen. But honestly, it was the reason I felt pregnant 100%.

I am going to start coming on here more often and helping all of you ladies as I couldn't have gotten through all of these hard months with you all. Please feel free to add me on Facebook so we can connect! Just message me on here and I'll give you my full name :)

IC means Internet Cheapie, eg: Wondfos, Easy @ Home, etc.
I hope this turns into a real BFP for you!

Kiera: You attempted suicide, got fired from your job and found out you were pregnant all within the same month? That is ALOT! I hope everything works out for you and you have a healthy pregnancy.

Kiera, I'm so sorry to hear all you have gone through! Congrats though on the BFP!!

Mine are definitely not evaps. Those photos were within 2-3 minutes. I didnt get a single evap with the same batch last month and I tested probably 12 times. Here they are dried though. Definitely pink.

Kristina, those look like my early bfp's on the wondfos. I bet if you try a frer you will see a solid pink line!

I couldn't find an FRER, I don't know why they are impossible to find anymore! I did get a first response rapid result which I guess is lower sensitivity. But I grabbed it anyway. Woo! Now we just gotta hope this baby is sticky (and a girl would be kinda nice!). After all this infertility hell I've been through it's just crazy that we got pregnant twice not even trying! I am still in disbelief.

Kristina and Keira - YAY! Congrats.

Keira - I just want to give you a massive :hugs: regarding your previous situation. Are you having some counselling/therapy? I am so glad you are still here and giving life another go. xx

Fiona - Thanks for asking and yes, managed to squeeze off a pound this week. :D Have stopped taking the maca, even though it is brilliant for fertility, the great oracle of Google tells me that skinny men and women take it for WEIGHT GAIN. Apparently, for some people, a lot of people, it can work like a steroid. GULP! I am expecting a better loss next Tues morning because hopefully it will all be out of my system then and I'm upping my exercise. Jillian Michaels watch out lol! :mrgreen:

Also meant to say Fiona, that you might want to take some Guaifenesin as this will help your CM inside you body to make things all slippery and nice for the sperm to migrate to egg. Preseed is good and a little bit will enter through the open cervix, but the Guaifenesin will help internally....

Hey eoe,

AFM, I got positive opk on cd13 but as of today cd15 no temp rise so far.....meh. I'll see what tomorrow mornings temp is like.... :|

Welcome back Becca! Good luck on continuing your journey no matter which way you continue it.

Congrats Keira and Kristina. You can join us on the pregnancy board as well if you'd like.

Keira I hope you're getting some counseling for your depression. But I'm glad something positive came out of a few negative events.

Yahy, my Dr office just called and let me know that my 7 DPO progesterone level was 18. So that means that I ovulated at least. Now we'll just have to see if anything took! :wink:

Is anyone else close to testing this next week?

Congrats to the newly pregnant ladies I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

Well done Simone on losing a pound I've just been for my weigh in and I've lost 1.5lbs! I just need to lose 2lbs next week and I'll have lost 3 stone (42lbs).
Great to hear you've had a temp jump fingers crossed this is your month!

I hope everyone else is doing well?

My Preseed, OPKs and PT's arrived today but I won't need to start using the Preseed and OPKs til late next week.

Not much else to report really, speak soon!
