Yay! So happy to be here!

Hi ladies. My name is Kimberly and my husband and I have been ttc for about a year and ntnp before then for 2 years. I started clomid in July 2015 because I had a lot of annovulatory cycles. The first round of clomid was successful but ended in a heartbreaking miscarriage at 8 weeks.

I have continued taking clomid with increasing dosage since then and while I was ovulating, it did not result in another pregnancy. After my sixth round of clomid my husband and I decided to take a month off of the clomid. I did temp sporadically, took an opk around my usual O day and it was positive so we used a softcup.

CD36 and no period. I also started noticing slight breast tenderness and had been having bad acid reflux for about a week. Decided to test with a Rite Aid brand hpt and much to my surprise, it came up positive right away.

I would be 5w1d today, going by the first day of my last cycle. I have scheduled beta hcg and progesterone for later today and then again on Thursday. In the past, I have been 6+ weeks before I could get a positive so very happy about the earlier result!

Southern, how are you doing honey? Not much longer to go now lol!

I was completely shocked! I didn't really think the test would be positive. I thought maybe my bb's must be sore from me checking to see if they were sore so much! I just about fell over when that second line started filling in. And no special surprise for a reveal to hubby, I walked out of the bathroom with stick in hand and said babe, we're pregnant! He had the biggest smile on his face. I think it is adorable when you tell your man you're pregnant, they become peacock like, so proud, lol!
