Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with irregular periods (3 years TTC)

I cannot believe I am actually posting my own BFP story. My husband and I tried for so long and spent so much money trying, that we got to a point where we decided to accept that we would not be having another baby. We stopped "TTC", no more pregnancy tests, no more ovulation tests, no more Vitex to stimulate periods. It was a very dark subject. I started to get very jealous of strangers who had new babies, or were pregnant. A few weeks ago, I had a strong desire to be with my husband, which was getting more and more unusual. We did the baby dance (with no intention of actually conceiving). I decided to take an ovulation test the next day to see if that was the cause of my extra feelings. It was very positive. We did not bother having sex again that day. We were done getting our hopes up. I had no symptoms, but had just been prescribed birth control from my doctor. I was going to take it and try to regulate my period. Before I could start the BC, I wanted to take an hpt just in case (on the extremely rare case it could be). Dollar store had run out of dollar tests, so I bought and blue dye off-brand. I took the test and a faint-thick line appeared right away. I started shaking. I could not fully be convinced because it was blue dye. I waited a few hours and chose not to drink anything. I bought a FRER and walmart 88cent test and after about 60 seconds a line appeared on the FRER. Nothing appeared on the Walmart test, but that didn't matter. For the first time, I had a real line on a FRER. Pink and there. I didn't need to take a picture to ask opinions. It was BFP. Since I have had sore breasts, nausea, and fatigue, but none of this appeared before I would have my BFP. It was all about a week or more after testing positive. My advice for everyone is that unless you know it's a positive test, do not consider it a positive test. I had so much false hope throughout TTC, that it drove me crazy. When I finally became pregnant, there was no question. I tested positive at about 9dpo, but it could take longer for some women. Wait until at least 12dpo, if nothing wait until a period is actually missed. Blue dye tests do work, but it has to be a real positive. Don't consider it to be positive if the line appears after 2 minutes only, is thin, or is not appearing on a First Response. The blue dye test ended up detecting the hcG just as well as the FRER, but the walmart test did not. The next day it appeared on that brand.
