Postby hopefulmama29 » Wed Mar 27, 2013 5:59 pm

Hi everyone! After trying for 15months, we finally got a BFP! I am over the moon excited! Estimated due date December 4th! First prenatal visit (w nurse in my ob/gyn's office) April 5th.

The coolest thing is i that a few weeks ago, i finally made an appt with a RE on April 1st. I got to cancel that appt today! Im very thankful for this blessing. Cant wait to get to "know" everyone here :-)

Hey there my hubby and I have been ttc for about 15 months as well...my last period was march 7 And I ovulated on the 22...and it's been a little over a week with symptoms of extreme exhaustion...and been extra sensitive ...my next period is scheduled for april 9 and I've been let down so many times that I think I should wait for my period to be late in order to test...I hope this is it for me too! We would prob have the same due date! Xo! So happy for you and your hubby! Hope I can experience the same happiness this month! What were your symptoms, if any? When did u test? Hope all is well! Congrats! And good luck!

Hi wishing! Thank you so much for your kind words! I told my sisters today and one of their b-days is Dec 1st! So of course, thats when shes rooting for :)

hi Cjc! Thank you for your well wishes! Even after trying so long, i still tested every month. So i think i started testing 8 dpo. . .Then on 10 dpo, 11 dpo, 12 dpo, and got a glimmer of a line on 13dpo!!! I couldnt believe it and thought my eyes, heart and mind were tricking me. I actually threw the test away, but something in my gut told me to dig it out and check it that evening, and there was a line! 8O So tested again and confirmed the next day @ 14dpo and told my hubby that evening! :D No symptoms really. I honestly thought AF was coming bc i had a little spotting. I think i've been more tired, my boobs werent super tender but seem a little bigger, and ive felt a little off a couple of days around lunch. Im impressed youve held off on testing. I hope you get your BFP too!

Thanks hopefulmama29! I've been strong and not tested bc I've been let down so many times but I just have this feeling deep down that this time will be it...I'm praying for it! For the past week I've been so exhausted to the bone!! Worn out...but it's gotten less and less over the weekend...hmmm not sure what's goin on but I will let u know if this time is it! It's so nice to have someone to chat with about it! My period is due April 9 so I will test then...if I can make it! Lol we shall see...did u test day of your expected period or before???

I tested before, but got a very very faint positive (on a $store test) the day my period was "due" and a better positive the next day! I was SO surprised! I am just full of joy, but also know its really early. So trying to be excited, and cautious at the same time. I was supposed to see a RE for the first time tomorrow, so im so glad i got to cancel that appointment! My first prenatal appt is friday, april 5th. Cant wait for someone "official" to tell me its true!

Hi everyone! I'm due on Dec 2. This will be baby #2 for us. DD will be 4 years old next month. We conceived on cycle #2. I started charting this cycle and discovered I didn't ovulate until day 18 (normal cycle lengths of 28-30 days), so I was pretty bummed about having such a short luteal phase and of course started thinking it might never happen for us, but luckily we got a BFP on March 24!

Anyone having any symptoms yet? My boobs have been extremely sore for over a week now, and I am always SO hungry...all I want to do is eat! I've had some mild AF-like cramps off and on which makes me nervous, but apparently that's pretty normal? And I've been really tired for a couple weeks now as well. But I'm definitely not complaining, I can't wait for the next 9 mo and of course the joy that will follow!

Hi Jag!

Congrats on your BFP so quickly! I took us 15 months! I actually had an appt with a RE for April 1st that I was able to cancel because I got my BFP :D

No extreme symptoms for me yet. Boobs somewhat tender, tired at times, didn't sleep well all last week, sometimes really hungry, sometimes a little nauseous, and some mild cramps here and there. Also, I seem to have lots of creamy CM. Idk if that's normal or not? This is baby #1 and my first BFP EVER!

My first appt is this Friday, April 5th! Can't wait for someone to "officially" tell me it's true!
