OMG – My Very Own BFP!
First – my apologies for not writing on here sooner. I always told myself (through a journey to my very own BFP) that I would write to all those trying as soon as I figured out the “magical” formula to getting pregnant. Through my own experience, I understand how grueling and emotionally draining it can be to spend countless hours poring through websites trying to find out what worked for others.
So as you may have guessed, I did get my VERY OWN BFP! It was on our third month trying (much respect to those I know who had a longer road than that). Today officially marks 8 weeks pregnant and we will have our first official doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. Obviously, I am OVER THE MOON … but have to stay cautiously optimistic while hoping for our sticky bean. (Which may be why I have taken a little while to write … I don’t want to speak too soon!).
As I wrote before, I had taken advice from many websites and bloggers in order to give it the best try possible. I REALLY think that pre-seed was a key to our “MAGICAL” month, as it was the first time we had used it. I also had figured out I was ovulating late after using OPKs and tracking my BBT, and therefore was obviously able to better time intercourse that way. I also was taking Evening Primrose Oil until ovulation and drinking grapefruit juice. Every little bit helps, right?
I really do give BABY DUST to all … and do understand what an emotional time TTC can be. Hang in there – once it happens, it’s totally worth it. :)
