Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

TTC#1 Took 12 tests before I thought it was real!

OD: CD 15 using OPK to confirm. BD: CD 11, 13, 14 (with preseed inserted), and 15. I have been taking prenatal vitamins for 6 months and this month I tried to wait at least 10 minutes after sex before getting up. I am 34 years old, a healthy weight, and I did not stop drinking until BFP. This was the first month that I didn't chart my temp. I was getting discouraged. We have been trying for 6 months, but a few of those were missed opportunities because my husband is a FF and not home much in the summer. No major symptoms. I did feel like a strange urge to clean the last couple of days, which isn't like me...I also was asleep by 8:30pm each night, but I didn't think too much of it since I had been getting up early all week. Also, did have some blood in my nose a few days. I thought it could just be from dry weather. //DPO 4 / CD19// Weird brownish CM. I felt like I have had this before during my TWW, so I didn't think too much of it. Also, this would have been way to early for implantation. //DPO 9 / CD24// Couldn't fight the urge to POAS. Used an internet cheapie. BFN. //DP0 10 / CD25// Decided to keep the POAS train going. Used an internet cheapie. I saw a shadow. That's the only way to describe it, because it wasn't a line. It made me understand all the women on those boards that are posting pics asking for help in looking at a test because I felt crazy. I tried to ignore it, but I couldn't. I fished out of the trash the test from DPO 9 to compare. Definitely a shadow. I somehow had a little pee left so I peed in a cup again. Did another internet cheapie...shadow. I am not crazy! I searched in the bathroom drawer for that one clear blue (not digital) that I had been saving for CD29...I dipped it in the same cup. Definite faint line! I couldn't help myself and tested a good around mid day. I held my bladder for a little over 3.5 hours and tried a Clear Blue Digital and BFN. //DPO 11 / CD26// Today my internet cheapie is a faint line. Slight morning sickness today. //DPO 12 / CD27// Today I got a "Pregnant" on a Clear Blue Digital. I also did my internet cheapie and it was about the same strength of line as yesterday. //DPO 13 / CD 29// Tested on my last Clear Blue Digital in the AM...Still pregnant. I did an internet cheapie in the PM and it was darker than the AM test yesterday. //DPO 14 / CD 30// Today my internet cheapie was finally almost as dark as the control line. ::Sigh of relief:: I am done POAS...for now! I decided to keep in my DPOs 11-14 because I began to freak out that this was a chemical pregnancy. The pregnancy boards can be a scary place when you are feeling unsure. I hope this will help someone else to not worry and know that a faint line is not a bad thing!! I guess the worry will continue now for a million other reasons, but I am definitely pregnant!!
