Number of months you were TTC: To my great surprise it happened our first month ttc!

Describe BD frequency during that month: O, 1DPO, 2DPO, 3 DPO

What BD position did you use: Missionary

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?: I'm not sure when we conceived because we made every day count but I definitely had the other big O every time :wink:

Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): LOL yeah for 20 minutes. I felt so silly. :oops:

Did you feel implantation (describe): Definitely. I had pinching cramps that were actually pretty intense.
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): I did at 10,11,and 12DPO. It was a very light pink/brown color. It wasn't much at all.

How many dpo till you first tested: 10DPO and then every morning after. Got a BFN the first two days and then a very faint line at 13 dpo.


How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: At 14DPO I used a FRER because I thought the $ store cheapie was an evap line, but it was BFP!


What test gave you the first BFP: technically the $ store cheapie but it wasn't clear. The FRER was without a doubt BFP.

What was your first symptom: I just felt pregnant within about 3DPO. DH thought I was imagining things and I think even I did to a point, but I really did feel different. Besides feeling pregnant, the first symptoms were sensitivity to smells, nausea and feeling gassy/bloated. A few time I was really overwhelmed by smells which had never happened in my life.

What has been your strangest symptom: Probably feeling pregnant so early. I didn't expect that.

On what dpo did you get your first symptom: 3DPO

Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: Yes. I had cramping much earlier than usual and the cramps were more pinching. Also I was emotional in a different way. I was really weepy.

Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): Yes, just cramping so far, but not as bad as they were around implantation.

How did you tell DH: I told him as soon as I saw the faint line. I couldn't stand waiting lol

What was DH's reaction: At first he didn't believe it was positive. He thought a faint line was a negative. He said if it was darker the next day then he'd believe it. It was darker so he was beaming and said "I can't believe it happened so fast!"

How did you tell family/friends: We're going to wait until 12 weeks so we are past the largest risk of mc

Are you hoping for a DS or DD: I've always wanted a DS but I will be thrilled to have a happy healthy baby regardless of gender!!

Number of months you were TTC: 3 years +
Describe BD frequency during that month: I'm not sure about 5 times during the month. It was Ramadan which means fasting from food and sex during the day so we weren't trying really hard.
What BD position did you use: Him on top mostly.
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): I started drinking plain raspberry leaf tea about a month and a half ago because my sister in law said it might help with my spotting... So yeah I guess it did :)
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: Yes even though I'm not sure what night it was :)
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): I just relax in bed for at least 15 min after.
Did you feel implantation (describe): No
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): Yes, one week before AF was due I have one tiny bit of spotting but I thought it was just the beginning of my normal week of spotting, but then I didn't have any more.
How many dpo till you first tested: 4 days after AF was due, I have tested 2 days late about 7 times over the last 3 years and it was always "made" my period come that day, so I became parnoid.
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: 4 days after AF was due, lines came up dark within a min
What test gave you the first BFP: Answer
What was your first symptom: I have been crazy tired the last week and a half but during my whole TTW I was flying places for work so I just thought it was a time zone thing.
What has been your strangest symptom: Nothing too odd yet.
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: If you count the one day of spotting (which I didn't till I got my BFP) it would have been about dpo 7
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: Nope, just came later and the sore boobs normally go away a two of two before AF and I still have them :)
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): Just got my BFP so I don't know yet
How did you tell DH: woke him up at 8am after he got home from work at 4am.
What was DH's reaction:"Are you serious?" followed by sleepy snuggling
How did you tell family/friends:
What were their reactions: Have yet to tell anyone.
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: We always joked that I wanted a boy and DH wanted a girl, now I really don't give a damn, I'm just hope this sticks.
