This was our 5th month trying. I had no obvious symptoms--I was even convinced that we were
out this month. Then this morning I got a BFP on a clear blue digital and couldn't believe my eyes.
Other months I have had more "symptoms" and have been disappointed, so this month I focused
on not tracking every little symptom and just hoped for the best. So there's hope for those of you
in the 2WW who are having little to no symptoms.
Things we did different this month:
As a heavy coffee drinker, I switched to decaf and limited to one-two cups per day.
Husband took Zinc supplements daily.
Cut alcohol intake back for the past 2 months.
First cycle using an OPK - Since my cycles vary by a few days each month (27-31) I think this really
made sure we timed things right.
Prayer with husband at night.
We BD'd within 2 hours of the first LH surge. We BD'd 2x that night, and once each day for two
1-9 DPO - Nothing out of the ordinary. Was tired at night, but attributed that to heavy work loads
at my job. Took a test at 9DPO in the a.m., and got a BFN. Definitely was sure I was out this month.
10 DPO - went out with some old girlfriends. Certain I wasn't preggers, I ordered 2 drinks. Normally
I can knock 'em back (haha) but my first sip of the second drink make me gag, so I didn't finish it.
11 DPO - girlfriends left town. Was EXHAUSTED. Attributed this to the fact that I was out late two
nights in a row and hosting girlfriends for the weekend. (I'm sure that still had something to do with
it). Also felt like I had a low-grad fever, but don't have a thermometer to check.
12 DPO - tested with a.m. urine and got a BFP with a Clear Blue Digital. Went to work with my mind
spinning and had to focus on my job all day even though I was going crazy! After work, I picked up a
dollar tree test and took it with late afternoon urine. Got a faint line- but a BFP nonetheless. Now let's
just hope this baby sticks!
So good luck to all you ladies who have gone through the 2WW many times. Your time will come -
perhaps sooner than you think!
