Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Success on the First Try!

I hope that no one here thinks I'm trying to rub in that I got pregnant right away, and that it doesn't make you feel more discouraged. I'm just hoping to remind everyone that there's hope, and lots of preganancies happening!

I'm 22, and my husband is 28. We got married in December. We didn't want to get pregnant at first for financial reasons, but recently decided that we could handle a baby after all. We both want to have a large family, so we didn't want to wait too long to get started!

I've been charting since June, and was using NFP to avoid pregnancy at first, so I knew when to expect ovulation. We didn't worry too much about timing our intimacy, but we made sure to try to make a baby the night I thought I ovulated (I was pretty sure from the fertile mucus and cycle day) and the next day.

I didn't really have any symptoms at all until about 11 days past ovulation, and even those were minor and non-indicative. My breasts hurt more than usual, but not a lot. I was sleepy, but I was up late. The only reason we had to suspect I was pregnant was my temperature, which went up a little instead of dipping way down the day before I expected my period. The day it was due, it went up even more, and we knew I was pregnant that minute. I took a pregnancy test that afternoon (yesterday) just to confirm, and it was a strong positive right away!

We couldn't be more excited to experience pregnancy and welcome our new little baby into the world this November! I will continue to pray for all of you wonderful ladies desperately wanting a baby. I prayed to Mary, St. Perpetua, and St. Gerard to conceive, if you want to try them. :)
