Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

after one year of ttc we got our BFP

oh my gosh. we have been ttc for over a year. it took such a toll on our relationship and there was so much disappointment. I am 30 and he is 27. we have had four children, plus we have two angels. we had so many times we thought this is it!!! but although the "symptoms" were there no bfp. this time around we made sure to try for the week prior to ov and he took a day off before the fertile day. I kept having an increase in smell and dismissed it from ov. also I started craving marshmallows and toasted them on my electric stove in desperation. but I always get hungry before af this time we didn't think about it too much. and every time I felt symptoms I wouldn't let them convince me due to all the bfn we had. but I started testing with dollar tests around 9 dpo. after the ten minute mark I kept getting what I thought were evaps I had those in the past and got my hopes up. so as I kept testing every day I would keep getting them even on the dreaded blue dye from rite aid. so I decided to take a break from obsessing and tested again the day before af was due. it was a quick thick pink positive! still slightly light. today I took another one and it is a huge blaring BFP. I am so.excited. we can't believe it. I have period like cramps, my favorite energy drinks taste like soap, I can't stand coffee anymore. I have obviously quit the caffeine completely now. I'm tired, my breasts are bigger and tender. I get hungry but then nothing seems appetizing. my advice is cliche but very true, one you relax and enjoy your partner and don't stress about it, it happens. this is the longest it has ever taken to get a bfp for me all of my other pregnancies I planned seemed to happen right away which added to the disappointment. good luck to all you ladies ttc and baby dust to all!
