After over a year of trying to conceive, not ovulating, false symptoms, being overweight and big fat negatives, today I can proudly say I am 2 weeks pregnant!!!!!!!!!!
This time around, I definitely knew for sure i was pregnant before taking the test from the changes in my body and my ind (i just felt more protective and vulnerable this past week).
Oddly enough this month I hadn't been tracking my ovulation because I was at a point where I slightly gave up trying to make it happen and left it in God's hands and said if it happens it happens and if it doesn't i doesn't.
So yesterday (which was a day before my period) I decided to check if I am ovulating- I honestly don't know why i decided to check because I knew my period was due the day after! but something just told me to check. I think its because I was feeling abit tired but to my surprise it came out positive with a smiley face. (I used the clear blue OPK digital prediction kits).
I was so confused to the point that i changed my ovulation date on my countdown to pregnancy account!! and then I thought to myself, how majorly odd it was to get a positive ovulation a day before your period!. Is it scientifically possible to ovulate the day before your period? Probably not LOL
So after that, I decided to open up the positive ovulation kit to look at the lines and the test line was so much darker than the control line! Which again i found odd because all the other times i used the kit, the test line was always fainter in colour. I did some research immediately after that and came across numerous forums and articles that explained that OPKs can sometimes pick up the pregnancy hormone because it very similar to the hormone released during ovulation.
So yesterday evening, I went to bed with crazy butterflies in my tummy and unattainable excitement and hope. I don't know how I resisted the urge to test that evening, I think its because I was so tired I literally dozed off to bed at 9pm! So somehow i managed to hold off testing that evening and instead tested in the morning with the Clear blue digital test. My "pregnant " result appeared almost instantly!!!!! (by that time i nearly had tears of joy) and after that, a few moment later it told me i was 2-3 weeks.
All I want to say is that I never thought I would get pregnant again because i had an abortion when I was younger because I was stupid, afraid, selfish and have I already mentioned stupid???, I regret tit every single day because so many people have gone to extreme length to have child, and there i was stupid, not acknowledging to great blessing that was given to me for free!
But now i feel like I have a second chance at a miracle which I blew the first time around, but this time nothing is going to take away this joy and miracle from my life.
My focus now is on being health, happy and relaxed so i can have a smooth pregnancy. I will also need to watch my weight because i am slightly overweight.
I am ready to begin this new chapter in my life.
No words can explain the joy I am feeling knowing I have life growing inside of me!
Happy trying everyone!
miracles do happen!
