I cannot believe this! I am still in shock! I got my bfp a few days ago and today I finally got a positive on a digi. I have spent a lot of time reading through the stories and symptoms and finally I get to submit mine. My dh had a vasectomy reversal on February 10th, 2012 and 360 days later I got my second line. What a wonderful "AnniVRsary" gift and our wedding anniversary is on Valentines. This is a wonderful gift!
Here's the kicker: we stopped trying 2 cycles ago, so cycle 12 and 13 I did not go back to look at my chart and never initiated dtd. This cycle we only dtd once and when I thought back it was 4ish days before O time. Who would have thought?!
Also dh quit drinking cold turkey in December and started taking his fertility blend, vitamin c, and mens vitamins on a daily basis. I also quit smoking cold turkey last month. I really believe this is why we got pregnant.
Here are my symptoms based on DPO:
DTD on cd 9 (I always O on cd 13)
O day- first time I never had O pains in over 6 years. I was beginning to think I didn't ovulate.
2 dpo: I noted in my chart "extreme lower back and leg pain at night". Then I went googling it. It was hurting so bad I was up and down all night.
3-5 dpo: nothing. No ewcm. Nothing. I was for sure I didn't ovulate
6 dpo: I noted in my chart "my nipples hurt! and stuff smells funny". That evening I walked into my house from work and I blurted out "it smells like sh*t and vomit in here, what is going on?" It was really bothering me. I was thinking maybe one of my kids was severely sick or something but they were off playing in their room. It was awful, I wont forget that smell lol
7 dpo: I noted in my chart "Right leg and back cramps. Faint faint faint bfp on dollar store cheapie. Could be a POS evap" Now that I think about it, it had to be a piece of crap test. That was way too early.
8 dpo: nothing
9 dpo: I noted in my chart "very very tired, nipples hurt, lower right side back hurts. bfn on frer. af type tummy cramps at 10:30 pm"
10 dpo: I noted in my chart "boobs hurt bad on the outside" Took 3 dollar store tests at 3 different times of day and got incredibly faint lines. Posted to tweaker boards, some call bfp, some call evaps or indents. Later that evening took a frer and a very light squinter popped up.
11 dpo: more outter boob pains. second frer lines darker and dollar store tests are finally looking legit. Made the announcement on my ttc after vr group and to my fellow vr gals.
12 dpo: definite bfp on frer, digi says no, horrible burning headache in the back of my neck, bra feels like its digging into my sides. charlie horse type cramps in my uterus.
13 dpo: even brighter line on frer. No denying that one! Made the announcement to my family, then my friends. All day yesterday I was sick as a dog. Nothing is working to help it. I feel like I'm stuck on a boat lol. one tiny tiny spot of orange on my tp last night.
14 dpo: very dark line on my last frer today, dollar store test still barely visible, but obvious. Not so much nausea, but incredible boob pain and a burning headache in the back of my neck. no more weird belly cramping. Digi finally says pregnant!
EDD October 21st, shortly after my 28th birthday
Good luck to all of you! Everything happens when the timing is just right :)
