Number of months you were TTC: 3
Describe BD frequency during that month: we bd-ed only twice that month. I kinda payed attention to estimated o date, but we were being less...intentional, I guess is a good word.
What BD position did you use: missionary
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): nope
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O? yes

Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): went to sleep
Did you feel implantation (describe): no
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): no
How many dpo till you first tested: 2 days after AF was due to arrive (she'd been late before and I got a BFN so I was afraid of another disappointment)
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: not sure how many days it was. More than 14
What test gave you the first BFP: Clear Blue Easy
What was your first symptom: I was emotional during the day at work when I was mistreated by a client and cried all day.
What has been your strangest symptom: none in the beginning. Hemorrhoids now (3 1/2 months)
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: not sure- I guess the crying around 14 dpo
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: no
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): yeah, I had cramps- like AF cramps. Really made me anxious.
How did you tell DH: He's the one that suggested I test! So we found out together.
What was DH's reaction: He cried.
How did you tell family/friends: We gave them baby picture frames for Christmas with a written message inside saying things like: "place picture of your first grandchild here" and signed, "me, DH and baby- expected August 20th, 2006"
What were their reactions: They all cried.
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: Either one healthy and happy please, but I know it's more fun if I pick so I'll say DD.


P.S Here's something fun but weird: Since it was our 3rd try and weren't sure what would work I chose not to tell my husband about when would be the right time and when wouldn't be, etc.. Instead I told him we should just try and relax some, which we both tried to do- hence bd-ing only twice. Of the two nights we bd-ed there was one night when afterwards he said sleepily: you know babe, I think that was the one.
I just rolled over and let him hold me in the dark with a huge smile on my face. A week or so later he said: shouldn't we be trying now or what? He was shocked when I said the time had passed. A few days after that we got our BFP and I told him what he had said. I like to think that night was the one too. :wink:

Number of months you were TTC: 1 year

Describe BD frequency during that month: We did an IUI, so we had to be sure to BD the same day I was inseminated.

What BD position did you use: missonary

Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): no

If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: yes

Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): I laid down for about 15 minutes or so with a pillow underneath.

Did you feel implantation (describe): I think I may have; there was a distinct pain I felt. That day I went to the bathroom and notice a "glob" (sorry if tmi) it looked kind like yellow snot with some brown spot in it.

Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): No, I never noticed anything on my panties or when I wiped.

How many dpo till you first tested: They had me go in for a bloodtest on 11 dpiui. I tested around 8 and 9 dpiui to see if the trigger shot was out of my system and it was starck(sp) white. They say you can get a falst positive if you test too early if you've had a trigger shot; I just wanted to see it leave my system, that way when I did test later I would know if it wa a true positive or not.

How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: I tested before I went to get my bloodtest and got my first ever BFP! I went out and bought a digital test after I was done getting my blood drawn and was so excited to see the words "Pregnant!"

What test gave you the first BFP: I think it was Equate from WalMart

What was your first symptom: Bloated and gassy; had the start of AF type cramps earlier than normal, also had a decrease in appetite. My CM was lotiony and wet and still is.

What has been your strangest symptom: Loss of breath going up and down stairs

On what dpo did you get your first symptom: 5 or 6 dpiui

Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: no not really, except that my decrease in appetite never went away.

Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): cramping

How did you tell DH: Since he knew I was going to be finding out it was hard to "surprise" him like I wanted. He had just gotten a new job, so I wanted to try and "mask" the gift to be something to congratulate him on the new job. A while back I bought a baby blanket, so I used that and wrapped a couple fatherhood books up and put them in a gift back with balloons on it. It was a wonderful moment, we just cried and hugged.

What was DH's reaction: Very happy and excited!

How did you tell family/friends: We were at DH's parents house so he brought one of the books out and held it in front of his mom and said, "Look at what Erica got me for my new job." You could see the wheels turning trying to figure out what it had to do with his job and then she just let out a squel and I started crying and we were all hugging, it was neat. I shared it with my sister over the phone and with my best friend. I had just found out so all I could do was cry my happy tears.

What were their reactions: Everyone was very happy for us.

Are you hoping for a DS or DD: No preference, just healthy. Though I did have a dream the night we found out that we had a girl and we named her Fletcher, poor thing!

Best of luck to everyone on your ttc journey!
