Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP at 9 DPO With 99 Cent Store Pregnancy Test!

Before I got off the pill, I had the misconception that as soon as you get off the pill BAM, I would be pregnant! Oh, how naive I was. I couldn't have been any more wrong.

Here's my story so I can give hope to those females that are actively trying and not seeing the two pink lines or the word PREGNANT and dread every month for AF to arrive.

It has been 5 months that I've been off birth control. (since October) We weren't actively trying, but just going along with the flow however, I started to worry at month 3 when I wasn't pregnant. I started thinking I had all these different types of reproductive system disorders. I've been told that I'm somewhat of a hypochondriac. I don't disagree.

What I did different this month was MUCINEX & Preseed.
I was on Mucinex for 2 weeks because I had a cold and was quite congested plus, I heard that it thins out your cm so it wouldn't hurt since I have thick creamy cm however, this month the texture was watery and I didn't see any ewcm when I ovulated, I never do when I ovulate. Also, gave Preseed a try only used it once and half the recommend dosage amount.

I swear, I had more symptoms when I wasn't pregnant than when I am.

I went to the 99 cent store and picked up 4 boxes of their pregnancy test and decided to take it around 5:00 in the evening. At first only the control line had a line. I was kind of disappointed. Maybe 15 minutes later I see that there are 2 lines! However, the line was so faint and I thought that it could be also a evaporation line so I decide to test again. Again, one very faint line appears after 2 minutes!
DH and I are ecstatic about our first BFP!

10 dpo:
Just woke up right now and tested again and it is a BFP! (faint positive line)

I hope my story can inspire and help someone that is starting to lose hope. I really think Mucinex was what helped me conceive this month. Good luck ladies! :D
