Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

My TTC and BFP story

Hi!

I'm a lurker coming out from hiding... But I just wanted to share my TTC story. These posts have helped me so much in my journey and maybe my story will help someone too :) My husband and I have been TTC for 3 months and finally got our BFP last week! Here are some of the things I did the last month that I think helped us conceive:

1. Gave up caffeine
2. Gave up alcohol
3. OPKs
4. Pre-seed
5. Legs up in the air for at least 15 mins post BD
6. BD every other day until positive opk, then all 3 days after
7. Ate the middle of pineapple for a couple days post ovulation
8. Fertility tea
9. Cassava root pills
10. Husband took zinc supplements during my fertile period

I had a very nerve-racking TWW. I did not have any symptoms at all and I thought for sure I was out for the month and on to the next. Finally tested on the day AF was due and we got a BFP! I don't even know if any of these specifically necessarily made us conceive, but I think everything put together helped :)

Baby dust to all!

It can be alarming to become ‘just another’ pregnant woman, lumped in with everyone else. The well-intended pregnancy chat boards can sometimes make you feel even more alone in your experience. On the other hand, you may feel ‘survivor’s guilt’ announcing your news to fellow infertility sufferers who travelled with you on this journey. Finding your new place as a pregnant woman takes both time and a supportive environment. If you expected to feel relieved in pregnancy but instead are more anxious… you are not alone. If you experience any of the following, consider attending our Pregnancy After Infertility Support Group. Feeling a sense of isolation or feeling different from other pregnant women. Worrying about each new stage of pregnancy and fear of miscarriage, genetic evaluation, or early labor. Concerns you’ll do something wrong to cause a miscarriage. Concerns you won’t do enough to promote a healthy pregnancy. Frustration living with challenging pregnancy symptoms after enduring lengthy infertility treatment; guilt in complaining. Nervousness leaving your Reproductive Endocrinologist and embracing an Obstetrician or Midwife. Fear of ‘jinxing’ your pregnancy by buying baby items, or having a baby shower. Uncertainty in rekindling lost friendships with those who already have babies. Uncertainty dealing with friends who have not yet resolved their infertility
