I am currently 6 weeks, 5 days pregnant and still very nervous, but I wanted to share my success story. I have been on and off of this site for years and it's been a huge source of information and comfort.
First started ttc 13 years ago with hubby #1. After no success and endless tests and then being on clomid for a year, I finally gave up when the doctors' only answer was I had "unexplained infertility". The stress of it all took a huge toll on my marriage and we ended up divorcing 8 years ago.
I met a wonderful man 6.5 years ago and I was very upfront about my fertility issues, but he was always positive and hopeful and we "accidentally" got pregnant 3.5 years ago for a minute. I miscarried at 5 weeks. We were heartbroken. Since then we tried, but with no success.
We got married this past July and decided to make a more serious effort. I remembered I had been on a gluten-free diet and was eating more alkalizing foods the last time I got pregnant. So after the wedding I started this diet again. Bingo! Pregnant 6 weeks later.
Gluten-free + Alkalizing foods + sex with coconut oil as a lubricant everyday for a week leading up to suspected ovulation = BFP
P.S. I will be 42 years old next month!
Hoping and praying this one sticks. First Dr. appointment in two days, but I have lots of symptoms and feeling positive.
So to all of you TTC, I hope my story gives you some encouragement, if only a little. I know all too well what you are going through. Good Luck!
