Hi guys! I just wanted to share my story with you in hopes it'll help some TTCers or early moms. Some background on me: I've been off the sprintec pill for 7 months, TTC for 6 months, and during those months I experienced a chemical pregnancy two cycles ago. I noticed that the first 3 months TTC my cycles were very short, 19-20 days so I researched online and started taking 100mg of B6 every day since then. My cycles are now 25-28 days! So id say it helped with that! I also have been taking the one a day prenatal + Dha for 6months as well and have had no complaints about that. What I did differently this cycle that I got my BFP was honestly not much, I just relaxed, ate some pineapple and drank a ton of water. I got so caught up in everything TTC before and realized stress could have played a huge factor in not conceiving so I didn't stress about what I was eating too much, in fact I enjoyed some mint chocolAte chip ice cream, went to the coast, and tried to de stress as much as possible. I also started using WONDFO OPKS and hpts (which are super cheap on Amazon!) here is a list of my dpo symtoms,I used OPKS and tracked cm.
Cd 8: spotting, negative opk, watery cm
Cd 9: cramping, watery cm, positive opk!!!, baby dance
Cd 10: terrible cramps (positive I ovulated this day), positive opk, ewcm, baby dance
Cd 11: cramps a little better, negative opk, ewcm, baby dance
2 dpo: creamy cm, baby dance
3 dpo: creamy cm, baby dance
4 dpo: tender nipples (kinda perky?), creamy cm
5 dpo: creamy cm, tender nipples, cramps
6-7dpo: same as 5 dpo
8 dpo: used WONDFO hpt thought I saw a line but threw away, creamy cm, tender nipples, tired
9-10 dpo: tender nipples creamy cm, did another WONDFO 9 and 10 dpo and got a super faint line
11 dpo: brown cm, cramps, got another positive on WONDFO, tender nipples and boobs
12 dpo: same as 11 dpo
13 dpo: checked with a clear blue digital and came up pregnant!! Still have a little brown/pink cm when wipe but none on underwear, boobs and nipples are sore, tired
Made an appointment for Monday for a blood test so I'm hoping everything works out! Brown cm makes me a little worried but from what I read it sounds normal as long as it doesn't get heavy and red. I'm so excited for the future and hope everyone else gets what they prayed for! Sorry the post is so long but I thought it'd be nice for everyone to know it's possible even after 6 months of TTC! Good luck everyone!
Possible due date: 1/21/17
