I thought I'd share my BFP story.
My husband and I had been NTNP for 2 months, and actively trying for 5 months when we got our BFP. Though I know that really isn't long in the scheme of things, it certainly felt like forever. We are both in our 30s and were considering getting testing done next cycle as we still hadn't conceived.
At 9 DPO, I got my first very faint line on an internet cheapie, but didn't trust it as the last month I had been using a different internet cheapie brand that was giving false faint positives as it ended up being recalled.
At 10 DPO, still had faint line on ICs, but tested in the evening and it looked SLIGHTLY darker.
At 11 DPO, tested with another IC and a line began to appear within in 30 seconds, albeit faint. Took a Clear blue digital, and got: pregnant, 1-2 weeks.
Still in shock!
This cycle, here is what we did differently:
Made smoothies almost everyday which included spinach, kale, blueberries, banana, chia and flax.
I lead a fairly sedentary life due to a desk job and I'm a commuter, so this cycle, I got an exercise bike and cycled almost every morning for 30 minutes.
Stopped taking evening primrose oil and stopped using pressed (not a fan of either!).
Tried to get extra sleep.
My symptoms by DPO:
O day had ovulation pain on my left side which was unusual because I usually only have it on my right
1 - 5 DPO nothing different from any other month
6 DPO started feeling twinges, but didn't think much of it, no other symptoms
7 - 9 DPO I believe I felt the beginnings of implantation on my left side- felt like a stitch in the side and hip bones periodically ached mildly
9 DPO super emotional, my husband came home late from work and I cried because I was sure he was in an accident (very unlike me!) Also took an IC that night but it was so faint I didn't believe it
10 DPO more twinges, took and IC and still very faint line, thinking these tests are also defective like last months that were recalled
11 DPO (Today) took an IC with FMU, came out a little darker and within 30 seconds could see a line, so took a $ store one, and got a faint line, so took a clear blue digital which came back 'pregnant 1-2 weeks'! Had slight cramping/twinges left side again, felt very mild headache and BBT temp skyrocketed.
Still can't believe it's happened! We are so excited! Baby dust to all of you and you will get your BFPs, don't give up!
