Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP : Ask and You Shall Receive
I cannot believe that it is my turn to post a testimony as I have been on this website for months reading many success stories. I always wanted to have children at a very young age but God's plans were otherwise. DH (34) and I (27) got married in the summer of 2011. I made sure I did not get pregnant in order to fit in my dress. Once the wedding was over, I was ready to start trying to make babies. Weird enough, my cycle was suddenly super unbalanced. I have a 34-35-36 day cycle but for some reason it went coocoo on me. No periods in September, a period in October, no periods until February and then no period for April, May and then again I got one in June. During this process, I went to see my doctor. She put me on Metformin. My mistake was to stop the Metformin whenever I would see a period. I had to stay on it as long as I was not pregnant yet. I did every test in the book to make sure everything was okay with me. At some point, I even thought I might be pregnant because I had a bunch of weird symptoms, people saying I’m glowing, a bunch of people dreaming that I was pregnant etc... Got two ultrasounds done just to make sure. But nothing. I bought a CBFM and this thing helped me a wholeeeeeeee bunch! Ladies get one, I bought it off second hand from someone. I discovered that I would ovulate between days 22 and day 26. Can you imagine?! All this time, I was way off. It was major pressure on the both of us (DH and I). Suggesting he go get checked would start arguments. On day 21 at night, I took an internet cheapie and both lines were dark. So the next morning I did the CBFM test and it was my peak. We did the deed with DH and I was convinced that he didn't release inside because he was still going even though he reassured me he did. I still didn't believe him lol. This week, I started testing with my internet cheapie HPTs. Monday a very light line appeared after a few minutes, Tuesday same thing. Wednesday night it was a bit darker so I went to Walmart and bought a CB Digital and FRER test. Started with the FRER, a faint line appeared and decided to try the CB Digital. Within minutes it showed: Pregnant 1-2. I am overjoyed!!! I cannot believe this!!! I have spent LOTS of money on these tests to always be negative. My anniversary had just passed a few weeks ago and decided to surprise my husband. I put the test in a jewelry gift box and tied it with a bow. When I came out of the washroom, he was already sleeping, I fixed the bed and laid a extra thick cover on my side of the bed (I always do that whenever I have my periods, just to not stain the bed, sorry TMI!). He woke up to go to the washroom and when he came back, he saw the cover and "knew" I had gotten my period. So I take out the gift bag and say this is a gift for you. He put it aside and wanted to go back to sleep. I said: Aren't you going to check what it is? So he opened the box, saw a test and didn’t understand until he read the: PREGNANT 1-2. He jumped on his back like a little boy, gave a huge hug and started crying. He was sooooooooooo happy. This cycle, it was different. I was less stressed, I prayed God that he take over of my situation, my household as he said that there shall be no sterility, I made sure to work out, told my mom that was my birthday wish, my husband's best friend came to our house for a week with his wife and child, before they left, he prayed in the house and said we left a child here. My best friend came over on the week of my ovulation, she said I am leaving the baby car seat here. God knew how he was planning things and I praise his name. Our time is not His time and when we understand that, we will be able to just give him trust.
My only symptoms was a bit of sore breast, very little. And I have been a bit more tired than usual, that is it. Surprising enough due to the "symptoms" I have had for months! Keep faith in God, do not get discouraged. I was there, I know how painful that can be when you see a period.
Baby Dust to All. Prayer works!!! xoxoxo
