This was our fourth cycle TTC and one month after a chemical pregnancy...
I got my positive OPK on Sept. 17th which was CD 20 for me. We had been on a weekend getaway the 3 days before that and I ovulated on the day we went home (I get O cramps, so I'm pretty certain of when I ovulate).
We BDd every day we were gone and the day we got home and maybe twice the rest of that week.
I should have gotten AF on Sept. 26th (for a 28 day cycle) but I had been taking vit. B6 since the day I ovulated (to lengthen my LP), so I assumed that my cycle was going to be a bit longer this month. I had a huge exam for grad school on Friday (Sept. 28th, CD 31, 11 DPO) so I sorta forgot about being 3 days late... After I was done with my exam I went to run errands and remembered I was out of AF supplies... So I went to Dollar General and picked up some pads and their version of an early response test. Talk about a bipolar purchase! I then ran over to the grocery store and POAS, the positive line came up right away (faint but there!) so I ran out of the bathroom and showed the first female employee I could find to see if she was seeing what I was seeing! Sure enough, it was a positive!!! I called my doctor and scheduled a blood test for Monday (Oct. 1st, 14 DPO). I took the test home and looked at it and well, the line sorta faded.... I was a bit disappointed but hubby and I had plans for the evening so I didn't tell him yet and was waiting to use a digital (men respond well to actual WORDS) with my FMU on Saturday (12 DPO).
I have noticed that the past week I have been waking up at 4 or 5 to pee (never happened before) so at 6 I finally got up and used the last digital test I had. Within a minute there it was.... PREGNANT!!!
I quickly ran downstairs and made a card for my hubby and put it on his nightstand. We love charlie brown and the Peanuts gang, so this was the first thing I thought of to tell him the big news! The front of the card had a picture of charlie brown and said,
Roses are Red, Violets are blue,
(the inside of the card said...)
There is a PEANUT in my belly,
that will look just like you!
coming June 2013!
We are so happy and my hubby immediately got online to look up college savings plans for our little peanut. I will still go on Monday to get a blood test, but so far no signs of bleeding or cramping!
My TWW symptoms really were not different than what I would expect from AF symptoms, except waking up early morning to pee.
We are so over the moon already for this little baby!
