After 8 long years...

Postby Desperate » Sat Jun 08, 2013 6:14 pm

We've been TTC on and off for the past 8 years and this year my BFF got pregnant and I decided that I was done trying and accepted my fate to never be able to have children, thus I would just live vicariously through my friend and be there for her and when her little one comes around I would spoil them rotten.

To top it all, hubby got a new job with crazy hours(2am to 2pm) and only has 1-2 days off a week, so between our jobs(I work full-time, 10-hour shifts), we hardly ever see each other and when we do one of us is usually asleep. So, BD-ing has been at an all-time low...only twice this month. :(

However, I guess that God had a good laugh when he gave me the surprise of my life today!

My period was a day late and I wasn't crampy. Figured there was no way in hell I was preggo, but might as well pee on a stick since I love to punish myself with negative results. :roll: I took a cheapo Equate test last night and it looked negative, but I coulda swore there was a faint second line. So I went and did a stupid thing and spend $20 on a First Response Gold Digital...BFN(and BF waste of money!). My friend said to try a standard FR, so I got one of those this morning...Lo and behold, there's a bun in the oven! :shock:

Still in shock, lol.

I'm crampy, like AF is going to show up any second now, and my boobs don't hurt AT ALL, which is weird since they usually hurt before AF shows. Other than wanting to eat everything in sight and being crampy, I have no other symptoms.

wow! Congratulations, your story brought tears to my eyes. I really hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months. Don't worry about the cramping, I had lots of it with both pregnancies well into my first trimester.

So happy for you and your DH :)

Thank you all! :)

Yes, hubby knew the moment I found out, lol.

I am a bit concerned though(typical paranoid pregginess, I'm sure) because I'm still getting very faint BFP's. They haven't gotten any darker. In fact, the last 2 seemed even lighter than the first one. :(

Also, as weird as it sounds, every once in a while I feel a lump sticking out a bit right under my belly button, about an inch to the right. Feels about 1 1/2". Very weird... I also had some dark CM this morning(spotting???). I'm feeling fine though, only occassional, light cramping every once in a while.

My coworker just had an ectopic pregnancy and so did 2 other people I know, so I'm extremely worried about that. The lump, plus light test have me concerned. :( I'll post about it on the preggo board and see if anyone can help calm my crazy nerves, lol.
