Like I'm sure many of you, I feel a ton of impatience when ttc, so I wanted to know the moment my body could tell me I was pregnant with baby #2. I used this board over the last few days, and I also consulted it before my first pregnancy, so I really wanted to contribute in case it helps any other 2wwers out there. This was our first month of 'not preventing', so I really didn't pay close attention to much until NYE, when I started to feel symptoms; hence, the dpo might be slightly off (but only by a day). I usually have a 28 day cycle, but last month's was randomly 30 days (first time ever since my daughter was born), so I assume that this month's was also 28 days. My period is due tonight/tomorrow a.m., but I got a bfp this afternoon.
1dpo- not paying attention, so nothing?

8dpo-some af-type cramps. Really? This early? No spotting so far....seems unlikely. Could it be something else? :)
9dpo- NYE. Woke up with mild cramps again. Took temp for 'fun' immediately after waking. 97.8. Check old records from 1st pregnancy. I only charted for 1 week back then, but my temp was the exact same back during the week of implantation in 2012. Interesting. Watery cm. EWCM after bm - 2 tiny streaks of blood in it. No more after that for rest of day. Want to drink tonight, so pick up a test at the store. If it comes back -ve, I should be good to go (I know it sounds bad, but we didn't really bd a ton around O - only a few times, and I got up right away almost every time. def. not like last pregnancy!) BFN, so party is on! Feel great all night until just before bed. Hungry, so I eat all kinds of stuff, but nothing is very appealing. Feeling a little queasy, but nothing really notable unless you're paying attention.
10dpo-NYD. Woke up at 3 a.m. bed at 2:30 a.m. feeling nauseous. Had some drinks, but definitely didn't feel drunk going to bed. Can't be a hangover already! Back to bed. Restless and ran to washroom several times until 7:30, when I was violently ill with vomiting and diarrhea. I remembered a family friend who was violently ill after drinking when she was newly preggers but didn't know about it. Dh knows the story too, and we bought thought 'hmmmm'. Took a FRER - bfn. Still don't believe it. Just seems like it's happening. Dh notices veins on boobs are a little noticeable - same as last time! They are also sore (normal before af). Call me stupidly optimistic. watery cm.
11dpo-watery cm most of day. Became pinkish in colour after bd with dh. Kind of freaked out. AF on way?! I refuse to believe it.
12dpo-couldn't shake the feeling that I was pregnant. Dry most of the day, but some ewcm at night. Pink was completely gone when I woke up. Temp still high (97.8 this am). Some food aversions (like chocolate cake - seriously!? Who refuses chocolate cake?), so I went out to buy a dollar-store test. Sold out. Went to another Dollar Store. Sold out. Caved and bought a 2 pack of tests (oops- bought blue dye) from drug store on way home. Hope dh isn't mad. Instant VERY faint line, but looks like it could be an evap. line. DH thinks it could be the real deal. Darkens as time goes on, so I really think it's evap.
13dpo- Woke up with need to pee at 5:30 a.m. Don't want to get up, because I don't want to test till later. If I test now, I'll never fall back to sleep. In and out of sleep till 7:30am. Dream about +ve pregnancy test a couple of times. Have to pee soooo badly! Very faint bfp with fmu, but was with the 2nd blue dye test, so held urine for 4.5 hrs, had dh buy a FRER, and got a bfp.
A couple of years ago, we weren't even sure if we could have a baby (dh had a vasectomy). Try to stay stupidly optimistic, and be sure to have a healthy outlet for stress (and maybe the occasional unhealthy one - wine is great for this ;). Good luck.
PS. If you see something - no matter how faint - on a blue dye test within the allotted time (before 10 mins is up), go with it. It could be your bfp! I spent the last day looking a evap lines online, and became discouraged for nothing!
