Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP @ 14DPO

Hi, guys! I'm 33 and my husband is 40 and I have a 25 day cycle. We've been trying to conceive our first child for about 4 months now and last week, I got my BFP, thank the Lord! :-) I was an avid reader of TWW the entire time we were TTC and wanted to share my story to encourage other women. I used OPK kits the previous months but I think they were stressing me out. It made sex feel like a mission to my husband lol instead of a joy. So this month, I decided to just follow my apps' ovulation predictions (I used Ovia and Fertility Friend). I ovulated either on 3/13 or 3/14 so we had sex on 3/10, 3/11, 3/12, 3/15, and 3/16. I really thought this wouldn't be our month since we missed O day but let this be an example of Jesus making things happen in His own time:-) I didn't feel any telltale symptoms. In fact, it felt JUST like I was going to get my period. Every month, I get intermittent tingling breasts and I got them this month too. And at 8 DPO like clock work, I got my normal af cramps gearing up. Nothing felt unusual to me until about 12 DPO, which was 2 days before my period. I usually get slight spotting, some pink when I wipe a few days before my period. But this time, I got nothing. Nothing at 13 DPO or 14 DPO. The evening my period was due, I took a test, thinking it would be negative and my period was just tardy. But I got a line! I was in such disbelief that I bought two more tests and they both were positive! As far as methods I used: -I used Preseed every time we had sex during my fertile window. I used to use it as a lubricant but the last two months, I inserted some inside and used some outside on my hubby -I cut way back on my caffeine. I used to drink a cup a day. But for the last two months, I had coffee maybe 3 days out of the month and switched to herbal teas. - I also started exercising slightly more, walking about 30 mins or so a day. I don't know if it helped but it certainly can't hurt. -I relaxed and began to really lean back and trust God. God gives good gifts and a child is one of His greatest gifts. His will and way is always better than ours so whenever I'd begin to freak out, I would be reminded that Jesus has me. I'm so grateful to God for this answered prayer and I pray for all of you trying to conceive. Keep seeking Him and trust that He indeed will answer! :-)

Congratulations for the pregnancy. I also thought I could share tips for those who are interested in getting pregnant. The desire to have healthy children can encourage some women to make healthier lifestyle choices when they want to get pregnant. Women may become more conscious of the food. Beverages and drugs they are putting into their bodies and set aside time to exercise. To optimize women's fertility. Taking better care of their bodies is a good first step. What else can women do to improve their odds of having a baby? Knowing when you're fertile is important when trying to avoid pregnancy too. If you don't want children. However, if you're not meticulous. Natural family planning can lead to a surprise pregnancy. All the best in your pregnancy. Do take great care of the two of you.
