BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Well THAT caught us off guard! :)

Hello,

A short little background on me and DH. DH is 34, I'm 31 and we were TTC for 8 months. We have no kids yet so this is our first and we are so excited!! :) We weren't trying for a couple cycles due to me needing surgery and we didn't want to push it back. My cycle started December 9th and that was supposed to be our buffer month - the one to get us back into a routine to actively try this month.

Now, onto our BFP and I hope I can give you ladies some excitement and hope. We decided to use Preseed but wait on using the full amount in December. All we did was use some on myself and a little on him. Maybe the size of a dimes worth on me. It wasn't much. I decided not to temp or use OPK's. We just had some fun and enjoyed each other. We did manage to have fun the week I was supposed to be fertile but I couldn't tell you what day I O'ed. I believe it was 3 times. That's it. And then I didn't think about anything after that.

I didn't feel a thing for a while - no PMS symptoms but I wasn't ruling that in my favour. I had been let down so many times before that I couldn't handle any more disappointment. A few days before I tested, I did notice symptoms but I assumed they were PMS. All they were was cramps that felt like af, headches, tiredness and feeling nauseous. The one thing I didn't notice at the time was I didn't have my usual chocolate craving but that wasn't until the night before I tested. I tested the day before af was to arrive to prepare myself for her arrival and the next thing I knew I was seeing a second line. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but nope, DH looked and he saw it too!! It was pretty dark for testing early. We went and got some FRER's and a digital one. Over the night and the next morning, I got BFP's! I even took another digital one on Sunday and it said I was 2-3 weeks, which translates to 4-5 full weeks. So everything's right on schedule. Just waiting for my blood work to essentially comfirm my BFP!

Ladies, I know we only tried for 8 months but the emotional roller coaster is real. Every time a BFN is staring you in the face, it's easy to just give up and want to forget the whole thing. It's NORMAL to feel that way. It's NORMAL to feel upset about hearing someone else get a BFP. (I fully expect that when you read this message.) But do one thing for me: Don't ever give up! Keep trying and keep pushing until you get your BFP OR you get some answers. Please - this is such an incredible thing that I want you ALL to experience this one way or another.

Babydust to you all. I'm going to continue to come back to the TTC boards to see how everyone is doing! <3
