My DH and I have been trying to conceive since January and just assumed it would happen right away. That's what they tell you in middle school haha. Well to our surprise it wasn't happening. I tried OPK for 3 months, we tried Pre-Seed and Softcup for another month and all BFN!
This month we took our all the stops, OPK, Pre-Seed, Softcups, and my husband took FertilAid. We also BD'd during the day twice when all the previous times it had been at night, not sure if that had anything to do with it.
My main concern during this 2ww was that my bbs or nipples weren't hurting at all and it was freaking me out. Overall I barely had any symptoms that were noticeable. I feel like I had the same symptoms all the other months when I got my BFNs.
Here are the things I do remember though-
4-5 dpo- vivid dreams (nothing with baby thought)
8-12 dpo- cramps like I was going to start my period. After reading everyone else’s stories I finally got to experience it. I kept having to run to the bathroom because I thought I got my period. However I do agree they were not as bad as when I actually did get my period. I also had creamy cm, but not a lot, I saw it maybe once every other day.
I was too scared to take a pregnancy test on 13 dpo so I took a OPK instead, and it was positive. Then I took 2 more OPKs because I was crazy and wanted to wait until 14 dpo to take a HPT. The other two OPKs were positive as well, so this gave me hope. I woke up this morning at 14dpo and took my HPT and it was a BFP BFP BFP!! Sooo excited.
I guess it really does take time. If it didn't work this time, my DH was going to get a SA done and I was going to try looking into infertility options. But it did happen and we are still shocked!
