This collection of stories has been such a source of hope and so fun to read! I made it through about page 80, then we got our BFP and I knew I had to post our story.
We have been TTC since April, but not really hard. The first couple months I was figuring out my cycle and OPKs and then DH was out of town during the "prime time" for two months, then two cycles later we conceived.
We used PreSeed, I really think it was a humongous help. I would put it in privately using the applicator right at my cervix roughly 15 minutes before BD. I don't know if DH even knows I used it :)
I had a positive OPK on Wednesday and BD the Sunday prior, Weds. and Thurs. All details count, so here goes: DH finished from behind twice and missionary once. I laid on my back and front after for roughly 10 minutes each side. I do get UTI if I don't pee after intercourse so I used the restroom shortly thereafter.
I was convinced my short LP of 10-11 days was going to be a problem with conceiving, or that I lost all sperm when peeing, and a million other negative thoughts. Not true obviously! The internet can be awesome but also terrible for giving you things to stew on, leading to fear.
A week after O (the following Thurs) I was unusually dizzy at my workout. Same for the following two days when I got a little hungry. Sunday tested with a very slight, barely noticeable line. Took an OPK for S&G's and it came back boldly positive. This was what really piqued my interest.
Went to work Monday, day AF was due at 11 DPO, got FRER and Clear blue digitalis at lunch and both we're positive. Told husband as our 2nd year anniversary present (we've been together almost nine :)) only real symptoms have been sore boobs under armpits and small cramps and occasional dizzyness. And I want lots of ice cream.
I was really hoping for this BFP on/for our anniversary and wrote a note to myself with my "ideal cycle" where I put 9/9 as the BFP day. I kept it in my purse all week. I don't know if it helped but maybe! The only heartbreaking part about this all is not being able to tell my mom, my best friend, cry and share joy with her as she passed away 9 months ago. I just have to hope she helped and knows, and is my guardian angel.
Best of luck to everyone!
