This was our third cycle trying and I decided to give it my best shot as I was going to have a break from TTC after this month as we are travelling a lot over the summer and I didn't want to be in my first trimester. I used pre-seed (3g inserted about 15 mins before BDing) for the first time and we did BD nearly every day over my fertile period and a bit before and after too, just in case. I used cheapie OPKs but I actually never got a real positive (where the test line was as dark as the control), though I did test 2-3 times/day. But I obviously ovulated despite so don't worry too much about OPKs. I got a strong fade in/fade out pattern so I counted the darkest line as my surge.
DPO 1-3 no symptoms
DPO 4 started having light almost PMS type cramps , tired
DPO 5-6 stronger cramps with lots of cramping on day 6, assuming implantation, extremely fatigued and can't stay up past 9pm
DPO 7 feeling better though still tired, slightly out of breath, gone off coffee
DPO 8 tiniest possible squinter/shadow line on IC, funny heavy feeling in pelvis, lots of white ewcm, light nausea
DPO 9 BFP on FRER with SMU!!! Used an IC with FMU and got a BFN and was very depressed. Used the FRER later in morning and there was an unmistakeable pink line.
DPO 10 confirmed with digital 4 days before AF due!
Feeling nauseous already and having some tummy troubles. Tired and spacey! Wake up with gnawing hunger, light cramps.
So excited to meet this little one! Baby dust to all.
