Finally, after 5 cycles. I'm still in shock. I am the happiest woman alive right now!
Things done differently this cycle:
This was my first month of Pre Seed! I completely stand by it. If you have ever thought about making that purchase, DO IT! My order from BabyHopes.com included Pre-Seed and 25 opks. Needless to say I was thrilled to have so many OPKS! :D I only used half this cycle. They were internet cheapies, but (obviously) incredibly good at predicting ovulation!
Each time DH and I BD'd I used about a gram and a half or two grams of product. It felt very natural! But, I can see that it could be overused, I would stick to less than two grams each time. We BD'd at least once every day during my fertility cycle, I used this chart (http://www.babymed.com/fertility-ovulation-calendar-calculator) to predict my window, and as predicted my ovulation was on the 20th of this month. I had a positive opk for 3 days (20,21,22) 22 looking negative, but my negatives are usually lacking a line all together. We did not BD on the 22, but did on the 21st.
My symptoms started right away. Ovulation pain from O-3dpo also heavy cm. Twinges like MAD starting about 4-5DPO. My breasts started throbbing BAD about 7dpo, (still hurt TREMENDOUSLY). About 9 dpo everything tapered off and I was sure I was looking at another cycle. I had NO implant bleeding, I checked nearly every time I could x)
Vomiting and pissy moods were also pretty tell tail. As I speak my stomach is gurgling and my burps are stinky! This is telltale, in a few hours I will have another bout of sickness. Vomiting has been present since about 7-8 dpo.
My breast were a telltale sign. At 10 DPO I noticed a brownish ring around my aureola and heavy blue veins forming at the top.
This month I did not chart temp, I did not post many symptoms. I tried to steer clear of the sites and stay relaxed. It worked!!
The test is a strong pink at 11 dpo! No questioning here! I am so happy! My baby is sticking! Twins run in my family, heres hoping we've got two little ones in there! :D Its 4:15 in the morning where I am. (I used my FMU, good timing, eh?) ;) DH and I are so excited! But are soon back to bed. :) I would like to assist any friends in advice or 'symptom spotting' as I was such a symptom spotter and always wanted someone to dish with me! hah.
Stick baby, stick!
