Yay!! Excited about BFP

Postby abbycam » Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:26 am

I'm in awe, can't believe it still!! Yesterday I was 15dpo and AF hadn't shown yet, and my temp hadn't dropped, so I told myself if I temp in the morning and it still hadn't gone down I will test. Well my temp this morning was still way up so I nervously got out of bed to pee in a cup and dip my various HPTs in....all super BFPs (wondfo, FRER, clear blue) went back in the room to DH to tell him. We are so excited. Hoping this is a sticky one; it is very early still....keeping prayers going :)

Things I did differently this month: EPO from day one until I ovulated; guaifenissin on the 3 days around ovulation; acupuncture, clear blue OPK (I used the wondfo OPK before but never got a dark enough line), and honestly...not trying as hard as we have in the past 5 cycles TTC. I didn't temp every single day, I tried to relax more and sleep well and be more healthy, I avoided this website (almost) completely haha!!

Symptoms: 1st dpo I couldn't sleep at all, I was wide awake, peeing like it was going out of style, and crazy dizzy whenever I got up to use the bathroom. Then....nothing. For two weeks, nothing!! Then i had this crazy dream that my cousin was pregnant and i was super jealous, and another dream where i took a hpt and got a bfp, but was really sad when i woke up since it wasnt real. Then I got cramps and sore boobs like I usually do when AF comes, but I figured I was out. Only...my cramps didn't continue with intensity like the usually do: come and go, and mostly to the left side. Boobs were sore, maybe a little more than usual. No nausea (yet).

I'm 25, DH is 33, been TTC 6 months for our 1st. Good luck ladies!! Just try to relax and not stress over every little symptom :) it WILL happen!!

Hi Abby! I also just got my bfp! I was 17dpo yesterday, 18dpo. I am still in utter shock - I can't believe we did it! We had a swimmer that won lol! So excited and can't believe it's true. I even bought clear blue digi tests today that said the word "pregnant" just to confirm it! YAY for our bfps!!!!! :bfp:

I researched like crazy and did a lot of things different this time. For the past few years, we haven't been preventing. We were just leaving things up to chance. Saw a RE in June and he said statistically we should have gotten pregnant by now. Scary thought. So I went ahead and bought a clear blue easy fertility monitor. Have been really tracking my cycles with it for 3 cycles. Used pre-seed. Bd all 5 days and 1 day after I ovulated. Ate pineapple core 1-5dpo. Drank green tea/fertilitea when I could. Ate CLEAN, took out anything with preservatives, sweets, caffiene, etc. Drank a super healthy smoothie every morning for the last 3 months. Taking really good quality GNC prenatals for about 8 months now. I guess the combination of everything made it happen. To be honest, I think it was the pre-seed.

Yeah, I think for us it was the Preseed too! This time I actually used the applicator though, which must have made a difference. I also used clear blue for the first time! I had been using cheap ones I got on the Internet (Wondfos) but never saw a dark enough line. Then one morning this cycle and noticed my temp took a little dip, so (not wanting to waste a precious, costly clear blue) I tried a wondfo and got the darkest line I'd ever seen!! Then I tried the clearblue and got a smiley.
