Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 16 months TTC, 37 years old

Wanted to share my story as I used to check this site out for hope on my TTC journey and I know how frustrating it is when you are trying so hard with no results. I finally got my BFP after 16 months of trying and feeling like it would never happen! I am very early on, so pray that he/she stays put! I knew I was pregnant before taking the FRER test because I spotted light brown blood about five days before my period was due. The spotting was minimal and happened twice over two days. Here are the things that I took away from my journey: It can take over a year and that's ok and that's normal. Get your physical exam before trying to conceive. Take your prenatals before you start trying. Make sure you BD once to clear out dead sperm prior to the fertile window. Make sure you BD two days prior to predicted ovulation. The ovulation strips you can buy on Amazon work just fine, but test later in the day rather than first thing in the morning. Try to remind yourself of the positives when you don't get pregnant, such as being free to do what you want, when you want! Hang in there and remember you are never alone!!!

Sadly, I had a miscarriage a few days after posting this.

Sorry for your loss. I hope he/she stays put next time for you x
