Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After 14 Months (Just After Infertility Referral)
I got my Bfp on Saturday after 14 months ttc. I am just 29 and dh is 33. We were just about to go for our first fertility appointment with a specialist and had pretty much resigned ourselves to needing IVF or ICSI
CD1 Period arrived for 13th time while I was at work and my male colleague chose that day to be evangelical about how lives are worth nothing without children- went home and cried! :-( Later found out that a friend had lost her baby at 22 weeks, which put everything in perspective. Decide to develop a life vision without pregnancy (travel, PhD, it helped to cheer me up)
CD2-6 on period and busy with family party and exhausted by work conference
CD7-14 went on holiday with my sister (without dh) and was so exhausted I was sick in a cafe. Had given up on ttc (though wasn't planning to prevent), but knew enough about my cycle to know I was in my fertile stage as kept thinking about Bding
CD15 arrived home and had welcome home BD ;-)
CD16 went out drinking with friends and stayed at their house (no BDing- it felt rude!!)
CD17 BD'd as still felt very fertile, really relaxed about it though and had some fun!
CD18-37 Didn't track BD or symptoms during this time as was not expecting a BFP, but remember feeling tired and had sore bbs from day 27. Got quite tearful a couple of times too- thought it was pms though
Once CD 35 passed, I got suspicious as that made it my longest ever cycle (the last time I had one that long I was in a car accident!) and previous cycle was 29 days. We were too scared to test after so many BFNs so went for a night out with some friends to take our mind off things.
CD37 went to hairdressers and she said my hair was thicker and looked at me weirdly, she had previously told me my hair would be crazy if I got pregnant! Decided to buy a test in town, but got some more pre seed too so as not to tempt fate.
When I got home, I decided I fancied a glass of wine so took a test to decide and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw two lines. Took a 2nd to be sure and kept re-checking that I'd read the instructions properly!
Hubbie got home and checked too, so I finally started to believe it (we went to Tesco at midnight to get him some wine and me some fizzy grape juice to celebrate!
I've checked this site so many times over the last few months and have no idea what made the difference this time. I just think its luck or law of averages.... If you roll the dice enough times it will eventually happen.
Am praying for a healthy pregnancy now :-)
P.S. we'd had primary tests at dr at month 6 and 9 and I was normal but hubbie was borderline for count, motility and morphology in different tests.
