Finally after a Year and a half!!!!!

Posted by DanielleK2014
So my big day was yesterday! I was 20 DPO and was 3 days late. I had woken up at 4 in the morning for work and decided to test. Not even within a minute I already a positive. Within the 10 minute mark it was a very strong positive. I called my doctor as soon as they opened yesterday and got right in for blood work. They called my yesterday afternoon to confirm I was pregnant!!! I am still in shock. My fiancee and I have been TTC since March of last year, and we finally got our BFP!!

I don't have many symptoms to post as I took a different approach this cycle, and it definitely worked. The only thing I tracked was CM and BD. I was focusing way to much on the symptoms, and getting let down every cycle. The only symptoms I noticed before testing was very sore boobs, pinkish tone to my face, oily skin, cramping, and feeling very tired.

So the only thing I can say is try not to focus to much and take a more laid back approach at it. I know it's hard because I just went through it, but it definitely helps. So I want to wish you Good Luck and lots of Baby Dust!!!! Thank you for all your support and kind words!!

Surrogacy, Home insems, first try success.

Posted by melanieshepley
I am a traditional surrogate and we conceived via home insems the very first time we tried!! Here is what we did in preperation. Hope it helps someone out there!!!

First of all, I used the CB Digital Fertility Monitor to help monitor my cycles. I know they are expensive, but totally worth it because the test strips you can get at any local drugstore never even registered my ovulation. Also, make sure you pay attention to your body. I know that checking CM and cervix position is kinda...well...gross, but it is needed to make sure you are ovulating. My CM told me it was time a day before the monitor did. The more things you have confirming ovulation the better.

Secondly, lots of water and a healthy diet. This is super important. We had the IF (intended father) obstain for 3 days prior to insems that way he knew he had a good build up of sperm that were aged accordingly. We also made sure not to insem less than 24 hours apart.

When it got down to the actual business I made sure to collect the specimen in a syringe. I put the syringe as close to my cervix as possible then SLOWLY released the semen. I then sat still with pelvic elevated for 10 minutes. I put in a instead cup to hold it all in place and removed it 3 hours later.

We did this 3 times in 3 days to ensure it worked. Then 10DPO I got a positive HPT.

Good luck ladies!

thank you God!!

Is this day really here?? Am I finally posting MY success story?! I cannot believe it. I hope my story gives hope and encouragement to someone, and above all, FAITH in the Lord's timing.

This was our 4th cycle TTC. This month we made the decision to not try as hard, and to relax. We also went on vacation right after my fertile week so I was not symptom spotting at all. Well, I was convinced to the point of near tears that it had not happened. I had given up before AF was even due just because I did not want to get my hopes up in the slightest. Sure, I was falling asleep earlier and feeling nauseated often but I was not about to let myself run with those thoughts. Well, low and hehold AF was late. I waited until I was 2 days late to test, and as I was at the register paying for it, the cashier said "this is it!" I started to grow a little suspicious. So , I took the test when I got hom about 6:15pm, and could not believe my eyes when I saw 2 pink lines. Ive never had a positive test, it was surreal. This morning I confirmed with a digital test: Pregnant! I am beyond excited. I go for blood work in a few days, and my first ultrasound is in 3 weeks! Im about 5 weeks pregnant and feeling great!!! Dont give up hope, keep trying, KEEP PRAYING, and it will happen. Wish my very best to all! I'm praying for you!
