I'm still shaking!

I thought I'd share my experience:

I don't chart, however I have learned to check my CM. I'm not sure when I ovulated either. I used the calculators as guides, but just think this way pure luck myself?

Last Menses: 07/21/2012
Fertile: Tues July 31st, 2012 - August 5th, 2012
Ovulation: August 5th, 2012

This cycle I did not notice any CM at all. Usually I have some sort of slippery mucus but not this time around? Weird.

My first indication was I have been VERY emotional the past few days (since sunday the 12th of August to be exact) I was crying for no reason! I never cry!

2nd symptom: Very tiny pains in my left side: I just thought my period was coming.

3rd symptom: Today, I had a slight headache.

Other than the above, I had no other symptoms. I'm still in shock! OMG!

First BFP for First Child!!

Posted by ourlovingfamily
At first, we weren't really trying, but also not trying either. We think we had a chemical during our May cycle, as we were 8 days late on an average 30 day cycle. Since then we put more effort into actually TTC at first just by trying to make sure we BD'd around possible ovulation time. This particular cycle, I was more diligent about tracking symptoms leading to ovulation. For some reason, since last cycle, I thought we were close although I don't know that I expected it to happen this soon.

Anyway....so the important stuff that most want to read (well I did anyway):

Vitamins/Supplements taking: B Complex every night, prenatal vitamins every day, Flax Seed-Primrose Oil every day (new addition this cycle). I am allergic to fish so in order to make sure I was getting more Omega's I opted for the Flax Seed-Primrose option :)

BD'd on cycle days: 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 20, 24, 26 (first HPT CD 27)

Ovulated on/around CD 16-18. I tracked it on CTP for 17.

I also checked my CP and CF almost every night to help with determining ovulation.

Symptoms by DPO: (I missed a few days for various reasons, but here they go)

O Day: Crankiness/Irritability, Dry Mouth/Increased Thirst, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Increased Cervical Fluid
1DPO: Crankiness/Irritability, Dry Mouth/Increased Thirst, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Nausea
2DPO: (out of town, didn't pay much attention to track) Sore/Sensitive Nipples
3DPO: (still out of town) Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts
4DPO: Increased Breast Size, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Dry Mouth/Increased Thirst, Headache, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Diarrhea, Empty Feeling
5DPO: Bloating, Increased Breast Size, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Sore Throat, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Increased Cervical Fluid
6DPO: Bloating, Backache, Increased Breast Size, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Crankiness/Irritability, Headache, Sore Throat, Fatigue/Exhaustion
7DPO: Bloating, Backache, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Crankiness/Irritability, Bleeding Gums/Nose, Headache, Sore Throat, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Nausea
8DPO: Bloating, Backache, Darkening Areola, Increased Breast Size, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Crankiness/Irritability, Bleeding Gums/Nose, Headache, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Diarrhea, Increased Cervical Fluid, Nausea
9DPO: Bloating, Backache, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Darkening Areola, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Crankiness/Irritability, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Diarrhea, Nausea
10DPO: Bloating, Backache, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Sore/Sensitive Nipples, Tender Breasts, Crankiness/Irritability, Fatigue/Exhaustion, Diarrhea, Frequent Urination, Increased Cervical Fluid

What really clued me in initially was the sore/sensitive nipples. I don't recall every having sensitive nipples for days on end even when I'm expecting AF. The tiredness and crankiness/irritability were definitely clues, then came the infrequent nausea. When DH said he thought there were parts of my areolas that were getting darker, I figured something might really be up, coupled with the fact that my cervix remained high and soft to medium-soft the whole time after O day. When I looked at my TWW charting, I saw that the symptom list kept getting longer and some of the symptoms were matching pretty closely to the most common charts on CTP with percentages going up.

I fully expected that when I test on 10DPO it would be negative since it was still about 5 days away from expected AF. I tested again later that evening because I just couldn't believe it and when that one was also positive, I basically knew it wasn't a fluke and yes, we are Pregnant with our First! :D

Good luck to you!!!!!

9 DPO BFP!!!!

Posted by mkfrees
I'm still in shock, it feels so early. I'm going to test again tomorrow morning just to make sure the tests weren't malfunctioning. I had a missed miscarriage in April 2012 at 10 weeks and experienced a suspected GTD (commonly known at a Molar Pregnancy) in March of 2011 at 7 weeks which resulted in a D&C but they didn't find anything. I still don't think the first pregnancy was a molar.

We have been trying to get pregnant since the m/c in April. This month is the first month we used a OPK and it appears to have worked!!!! I just hope this one will stick. I pray we will be holding a baby in our arms in 259 days.

1-9 DPO No symptom other then fatigue and exhaustion, I just thought it was because we've had family and friends staying with us for a weeks.

9 DPO 1 very faint BFP when I woke up and 1 standard positive after I went for a run (which was way more difficult then normal).

This is great news!!! I am trying to stay hopeful for the future. Thanks

After 6 years, finally my miracle baby!

Posted by babylove+
I can"t believe I finally get to put my story on here, for inspiration and hope I have read others stories and now heres mine!
My husband and I have struggled with infertility for almost 6 years now. We have been through tests, surgeries, pills and medication, countless appointments and numerous treatments. We did IVF w/ICSI almost two years ago which resulted in our first pregnany and sadly ended in a miscarriage. A year later we did a frozen embryo transfer that also resulted in a pregnancy that turned out to be ectopic. Now a year later I went to the doctor for a rash and through bloodwork found out for the first time ever we are pregnant NATURALLY!!!! I still can not believe this miracle that I have prayed for for so long is real. I was beginning to think it would never happen and now I am over joyed and so incredibly thankful for this miracle. Don't ever give up, there is always hope and even though it is not easy(the hardest thing I have ever been through) in time your dreams can come true. I just pray that i have a happy and healthy pregnancy and in 9 months I am holding my miracle baby in my arms!!! BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!

Boot Camp Baby

Posted by spiritmoonstone
My husband recently joined the US Navy. We were told that we couldn't start trying until after basic training (boot camp) was finished. He graduated on July 20th, and then had to wait a few days until he could report to his new station before he could come home to move me, and we could start trying. I had my IUD removed a month before he went into basic, and casually tracked my ovulation throughout (I'm one of those lucky ones that can feel it, yay?). The entire time I was having a 27 day cycle, ovulating on the 12th day. Through our letters back and forth, we both couldn't wait for him to return home so we could start trying. After 4 years of marriage, he was finally ready.
I kept tracking and calculating, and was a little dissapointed to see that he wouldn't be returning until day 16 of my cycle...4 days too late...But as the day got closer, I kept telling my body 'don't ovulate until 10pm the day he gets home'. Turns out it worked, about 3 hours after our reunion, I felt the familiar pinch - on my left side this month - and after waiting 5 days after my expected period, took a test on Aug 8th....came up with "Pregnant" in just over a minute!
We are both Elated, and cannot wait to tell our family once I hit the end of the first trimester...seems so far away right now. And we LOVE that we will have our little one to always remind us of that wonderful night spent together when he returned from boot camp. The odds were against us, but God had His own timing in mind!
