Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Finally got my BFP on 20th Feb one day before AF was due.
After 26 months of trying, I am finally pregnant!! We are so excited!! I finally got my BFP two days ago (one day before AF was due)! I did four tests (two the day before AF was due and two on the Day AF was due.) I was so convinced I was seeing things. This month was weird because I didn't notice any symptoms expect slight nausea and my mood was uncontrollably terrible, (DH and I are currently not speaking and he is in the front room deflated..my mood is rotten atm). I woke up the day before AF was due with a very pessimistic attitude, I was cramping slightly exactly as if AF was going to arrive at any moment. Already in a terrible mood, I decided that putting myself out of my misery would be better than knicker watching for AF to arrive. So I went straight to the bathroom determined on seeing my negative and putting this month behind me. I got the test out and tried to wee on it, my luck being my luck after 12 hours of sleep only a dribble of fluid managed to make it on to the stick, go figure. I put the test on the side of my sink thinking wow not only did I waste this test because I am obviously not pregnant but now I've not even managed to curb my anxiety because the test is not going to give me a definitive result. I left the room for a moment, then went back in ready to throw the test away even though my mind was still trying to superimpose another line on the test as per usual. I peered down and I saw a strong test line, with a feeblish but very distinctive second line. I immediately burst into tears. NO WAY! I genuinely thought we wouldn't be able to do it, after 24 months and being diagnosed with 'unexplained fertility' I was certain we would have to start saving our money for IVF. I'm 30 and my partner is 29, we are not old but not young either when it comes to my fertility and I just saw this never happening for us. Every Pregnant bump I would walk past, every new pregnancy announcement hurt like hell. Now it's our turn!!! I have such a supportive partner, he has been my complete rock through all of this, and I cant wait till he has our baby in his arms. Please don't give up ladies.. Baby dust to you all. I changed a lot of my lifestyle, added a few good herbs and had a Hi-cosy a month before my BFP, I do believe all these things helped. Please message me if you would like some tips/advice or just to find out more about what worked for me. Only 35.3 weeks to go now :D ... bring on the baby bump!
