Number of months you were TTC: 10

Describe BD frequency during that month: Evening of first positive OPK, following evening, & the morning after that. My temp went up the next morning.

What BD position did you use: Missionary & doggy style.

Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): Daily prenatal & one baby aspirin. That's it.

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? I fell asleep after each time, even if just for like fifteen minutes, on my right side. No propping up or shoulder stands or anything.

Did you feel implantation (describe): I don't think so.

Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): Tiny tiny amounts of pink & brown spotting at around 9, 10, & 11DPO. Almost negligible.

How many dpo till you first tested: 2DPO, but just to make sure my tests didn't evap. I didn't intend to start testing seriously until 9DPO, but I tested at 6DPO & got a (VERY faint) positive. They just got darker from there.

How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: First time, not counting evap checks.

What test gave you the first BFP: Wondfo pink handle.

What was your first symptom: I pretty much didn't have any symptoms until long after I was getting clear BFPs. My symptoms are still no big deal. Slightly tender breasts, occasional fleeting nausea (no vomiting), some fatigue. I'm only 15DPO though. Still early.

What has been your strangest symptom: Nothing too weird yet.

On what dpo did you get your first symptom: Maybe I had some very minor nausea at around 10DPO. No big deal at all.

Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: Fo me, it was more like an absence of AF symptoms. Usually my skin breaks out a little right before AF. No breaking out this time. Sometimes I get migraines. I haven't had any migraines this time. AF usually makes me feel emotional & tired, & I have indeed been emotional & tired. The main difference is that I feel a stretching/growing sensation in my uterus that is totally different from anything I feel when not pregnant.

Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): Very minor spotting. That's it.

How did you tell DH: Just showed him the tests when he was around. I may have had a chemical pregnancy last cycle, so he refused to get remotely excited about the faint lines. Even after I was getting positive digis, he wouldn't really accept it or get excited.

What was DH's reaction: Bafflingly obnoxious. We've known for over a week, I've already told my family & all my closest friends, but he refuses to tell his parents. & he keeps making remarks about how we need to save money, telling me that we "can't afford" for me to delivery in a hospital birthing suite (suites are the only maternity rooms my local hospital offers--they just re-did their maternity ward) & trying to convince me that it would be okay to buy a second-hand car seat. I think he's having feelings about suddenly being a family provider, but he is seriously working my very last nerve here.

How did you tell family/friends: Called some of 'em, texted others, dropped FB messages to others. Depends on how close we are/how we usually communicate. Skyped with one. Told another at a baseball game.

What were their reactions: A mixed bag. Most people have expressed excitement, but I know some people are disappointed. Yes, I am friends with a few baby haters who spent the last ten months trying to convince me that I don't really want to be a mom. We'll see if they come around or not.

Are you hoping for a DS or DD: I would really prefer a daughter, but as long as the baby is healthy & happy, I don't really care.

Number of months you were TTC: 2
Describe BD frequency during that month: Two days on, one day off for most of my fertile period. We stopped earlier than we should have because I had a migraine right at O time.
What BD position did you use: Ummm...I didn't know there would be a quiz! Mostly we did missionary and doggy.
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): I drink green tea every day normally, but did not use it specifically to conceive.
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: Not sure.
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): No. Sometimes I would fall asleep for a few minutes but not on purpose.
Did you feel implantation (describe): I had mild cramping (felt like diarrhea brewing) starting at 7dpo.
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): No
How many dpo till you first tested: 8 (BFN)
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: 10
What test gave you the first BFP: Wondfo One Step (but Clearblue Plus and Clearblue Digital both gave me positives as well from the same pee, while FRER gave me an evap-looking line).
What was your first symptom: Cramping but it was really mild and easy to dismiss. An abundance of creamy CM starting day 9 is what made me test though.
What has been your strangest symptom: Metallic taste in my house on the morning of 12 dpo.
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: 7
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: Only very slightly
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): Cramping yes, from 7-10dpo. No bleeding so far, but AF is technically due tomorrow so it's still early yet.
How did you tell DH: I knew the line tests were too light for him to believe them, but after the digi came up positive I wrote "Kiss the baby" on my belly (read it on another site) and went back to the bedroom. When he woke up and looked at me I opened the robe so he could read it, then gave him the digi test to read.
What was DH's reaction: Before he saw my belly he asked me if I had told him I started my period last night (apparently he was dreaming about this, haha). After he read my belly and saw the test he got super excited. He is still spending most of the day just grinning at me, two days later!
How did you tell family/friends: I've only told one friend. I asked her our for coffee and while we were walking there I showed her the positive digital test. We are planning to tell my mom and stepmom tomorrow (Mother's Day in the US) over the phone, and the rest of my family in June when we go visit (we live across the country from our families and want to take the chance to tell them in person, even though it will still be pretty early in the pregnancy). We'll probably tell his one sister he's close to when we tell most of my family, but the rest of his family we are waiting on because they drive us crazy under normal circumstances.
What were their reactions: My friend squealed and gave me a big hug. Not sure what the other reactions will be yet. Both sets of my parents know we are trying, so I don't think they will be too surprised, but the rest of the family is pretty much in the dark.
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: I would prefer a DD, but my husband has no preference. I'll be thrilled either way.

Nope. Just prenatals

If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?:
I believe so

Sometimes I would just roll over and go to sleep and other times I would get up and clean up right away :oops:

Not at all

Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?):
To my surprise, yes! At about 11 dpo I had light pink spotting (scary for me who never spotted with either previous pregnancies)

How many dpo till you first tested:
I tested every day since about 4 dpo lol! I had bought a bunch of cheapies and thought what the heck...

I believe I was about 9 dpo when I got a very faint line on a wondfo.

What test gave you the first BFP:
10dpo on a digi!

Fatigue

Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms:
I had no normal pms symptoms, I knew something was up!

How did you tell DH:
Showed him the digi after work! We were both shocked and not expecting it since it took two long years to get ds :)

What was DH's reaction:
At first he didn't believe it was my test! Then when I finally convinced him he became very quiet but wouldn't stop smiling. He later said he was a little shocked but very excited!

How did you tell family/friends:
We waited until we heard the heartbeat and then bought ds a "Big Brother" shirt and waited for them to catch on.

What were their reactions:
They were surprised since no one knew we were ttcing

Are you hoping for a DS or DD:
Honestly, I couldn't choose if I could! I secretly wish I was carrying twins, a boy and a girl :) [/b]

Number of months you were TTC: 5, but this was our first month of being in the same place for the whole fertile window!
Describe BD frequency during that month: Every other day from days 8-11, then every day once I detected a LH surge until day 14.
What BD position did you use: Spooning
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): No, but I was planning to pick up some PreSeed if it didn't work that month.
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: Yup! Before and after DH.
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): I stayed in bed for about 20 minutes with my hips propped with a pillow.
Did you feel implantation (describe): Yes, a little twingy cramping on my left side only.
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): I did. Just a bit of brownish pink spotting 6 dpo. Very unusual, and really made me wonder!
How many dpo till you first tested: 7 DPO...I am impatient!
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: At 9 DPO I got faint lines on three tests.
What test gave you the first BFP: Wondfo, baby! I swear by those. I had lines on the Wondfo at least two days before any other test.
What was your first symptom: Sore breasts and nipples.
What has been your strangest symptom: Restlessness (like restless legs, almost) when I'm not feeling super tired!
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: 6 DPO if you count implantation bleeding and cramping, 12 DPO for noticeably sore breasts and nipples.
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: My breast soreness almost always decreases about a week prior to AF, and this time it didn't go away (and then increased a few days after I got a positive test). And then I did start to get mild AF-type cramps. But honestly, for the first week or so I had no real symptoms.
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): Mild cramping and twinges over my left ovary, both of which tapered off after about 8 weeks. Also, two very slight (but terrifying!!!) episodes of spotting which, in retrospect, I know were related to an irritated cervix.
How did you tell DH: I just told him as soon as I thought I saw a line! And had him look at the line, too.
What was DH's reaction: He was a little skeptical at first. Like, "that line is so faint, are you sure?" Then it sunk in!
How did you tell family/friends: I am the worst secret-keeper. I just told my parents and his mom over the phone!
What were their reactions: So thrilled.
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: I just want a healthy, take home baby! No preferences, really. But I've been feeling boy.

Number of months you were TTC: 5
Describe BD frequency during that month: not as much as before...previously we BD'd every other day the whole month, then dailys around ovulation time. Exhausting!! This time we did it when we wanted to, and also made sure around the 3 most fertile days.
What BD position did you use: Haha honestly I don't remember :)
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): we had always been using Preseed, but this time I actually used the applicators to inject some in, instead of just using it as lube >=P I always drink green tea anyway. I also did acupuncture, took Chinese herbs and EPO and took guaifenissin around ovulation time. Used clearblue OPKs and temping to predict O.
