My bf and I decided to begin "trying" last month. I'm 38 so we figured it may take a awhile for me to conceive. We tried for a few days straight just prior to my ovulation. We stopped two days prior to my getting my positive ovulation test, as ive read this gives the girl sperm an advantage. So those little guys were hanging out a few days before I ovulated. For this reason, I actually figured it was unlikely I'd get pregnant this cycle. But then a couple weeks later...
11dpo: On the day I was due for my period, I had mild cramping and just a smudge of blood. I realize now it must've been implantation bleeding, but at the time I thought it was the beginning of my period. So much so that I put in a tampon! (Sorry if it's TMI).
13dpo: By this time, I was a bit suspicious as I was 2 days late and I'm always very regular. That morning I took a cheap pregnancy test and got a very faint line in the test window. I actually thought it was negative. As the day went on however, I became more convinced I was pregnant. As the day went on, I noticed an extreme heightened sense if smell. I swear I could smell someone from a mile away. Not usually a good thing! ð??· on my way home from work, I picked up a digital pregnancy test and took it that evening. Five minutes later, BOOM! Clear as day, "Pregnant"
