Hello ladies. Thank you guys so much for your wonderful and encouraging stories that have kept me sane and hopeful for the many months I spent yearning for my own success story.This pregnancy was the most surprising event that has ever happened to me in my life because although my dear husband and I had been trying for over two years for #2 after 2 miscarriages and 6 devastating cycles since the last miscarriage, I was totally and completely surprised when I got my two beautiful pink lines.
I last miscarried on March 4 2012, at 13 weeks and was just desperate to get pregnant again before my 45th birthday in October. Can't help but feel my time is short although I really believe that we women have the right to be pregnant as old as we wish, sadly the health community does not agree and tend to be indifferent to older moms-trying-to-be moms again. in any case I desperately want to give my 4 year old son a sibling and to relieve some of the sorrow from my loss in March.
Over the last few months I tried every fertility supplement on the market and BDed like crazy and was devastated time and time again when AF kept showing up. Last month I was absolutely sure I was preggers and even had the implantation spotting at 9 DPO which I only ever get when I'm pregnant and was ecstatic that it finally happened, But when HPTs kept coming up blank I lost all hope and then AF arrived. I completely lost it. Cried like a baby.
So this cycle I did nothing out of the ordinary. I stopped all supplements, no vitex or EPO or extra vitamin B6 or maca and did not even replace my pre-natals when they ran out. I almost did not even try this month but my kind amazing DH was my rock and encouraged me to go for it. We just relaxed about BDing and tried to get it in at the right time but not stress or push to make it happen at a certain time. And It worked! Although I did not really hold out hope that we would succeed. And this is where the surprise part happened. I had less Symptoms than any other cycle. Just heavy BBs after ovulation which is normal for me, but absolutely nothing else. At 9 DPO after spending the whole day reading your amazing stories on this site I decided to test just on a whim quite prepared to squint at the white blank space until my eyes popped and end up throwing it in the trash. I mean what were the chances of a miracle and then again those things just didn't happen to me. But amazingly as I stared right before my very eyes within 10 seconds of saturation a tiny pink line started to appear and I didn't even have to squint to see it! well I almost lost my dinner and yes it was evening urine too. My legs gave out, I had to sit, then I wept from pure joy and thanked God for this miracle. Most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I swear. Well DH is happy but cautiously optimistic. Me, I'm just over the moon overjoyed! Praying, praying, praying for a sticky bean.
Don't ever give up hope ladies. I almost did.
