14DPO and I took my first test at 3am this morning with Clearblue Digital and it was a clear Pregnant 2-3 weeks conceived .. wow! I'm super excited, we are lucky as it was our first real go at trying to get pregnant at our age (35++ age range). Though we did know when I was ovulating and did time having sex every couple of days during my fertile week. As we had been tracking for a while my cycle. I had most of the symptoms but wasn't 100% sure as they where very close to the ones I normally get before I get my periods, with one or two slight differences that I noticed. My first real sign was that i was always exhausted 24/7 no matter how much sleep i had, being constipated which was not normal for me as I'm very regular. The other was a change was with my nipples and areola. My nipples doubled in size and my areola got a lot darker. My breasts where sensitive but not abnormally sensitive and neither are my nipples. I did not have any spotting or implantation bleeding and no aversion as yet to any foods or smells. So I wasn't 100% convinced that I was pregnant and I pretty much prepared myself for a negative. I must say that two week wait is agony! But know I now I can not wait to surprise my husband tonight. I didn't tell him this morning as he has a big day at work which I wanted him to concentrate on, but let the celebrations begin tonight. Good luck to everyone else trying hang in there and to those who found out they are Pregnant CONGRATULATIONS!

Becoming a Mommy

Posted by thinkPOSITIVE
We tried for over a year an half before those two lines finally showed up on that early morning test! Now I know that is no where near how long some of you have been trying, but I also feel that when it comes to wanting a baby, month after month of bfns can seem like an eternity no matter how long. But I don't mean to take away anything from those who have waited way longer then that...
I had tried everything from Geritol to Pineapple Core. The month we conceived, I did a castor oil and cayenne pepper mixture that I rubbed over my uterus after ovulation, to help with blood circulation. Was this the trick? Maybe, maybe not, but thought I would include this for those of you who are willing to try anything to finally have the bfp like I was. (TMI) also, we made sure to bd doggy style...which I believe helped as it was the first time doing this during ovulation. And I had also been taking ovulation tests. Hope one of these things brings a bfp for someone, because I know how hard is to go month after month with no bfp.
On top of all, I am so thankful to the Lord, for blessing us with this baby we are so close to meeting! 37 weeks! Hugs to all of you trying for your little blessing!

Finally!!! :) With lots of AF cramps and nothing else!

Posted by MrsAxe7
Hello all! I have stalked this site and sites like this for months, so I promised myself I would post my story when the day came. And the day has come!! You guys have all been such a huge blessing in this process and although I only know any of you through posts, your wisdom and advice has been priceless! So here goes the story:

My husband and I have been trying for 6 months, and although I know that's not an immense amount of time, it sure felt like it at times. This month and last I decided to stop putting ALL of my symptoms into my smartphone. I felt like I was obsessing too much and it couldn't be healthy for me. I did my best not to symptom spot and tried to enjoy the process rather than make it feel scheduled. This month we only BD-ed twice before O day which was 11/30. I thought we missed it because we were only able to get in in on the 27th and 28th! Now for the fun stuff...these were the REAL symptoms. Not the strange things that I thought I felt that probably didn't exist.

1 - 6 DPO - Nada. Zip.
7 DPO - Cramps started at night EXACTLY like AF, but a few days sooner than normal
8 DPO - More cramps, this time very intense that lasted all day. Had to leave Xmas shopping early because they hurt so bad. Metallic Taste in mouth that was impossible to miss.
9 DPO - Woke up with sore boobs. Not the nipples, the sides. More lovely cramps, Pink tinged CM only once when I wiped. Still thought I was out because of the cramps, but tested anyway BFN.
10 DPO - More cramps and major IBS issues that have been happening most of the week. Tested anyway, BFN
11 DPO (today) - Mild crampiness and low back pain. Hubby asks me if I am pregnant and I say no and tell him I will start going to the gym with him this weekend (he's my fitness freak ;) ). Midway through the day I realize that, thanks to you ladies, cramps don't always mean I am out. So I tested on $ tree and it was the faintest bfp. After three of them, I was convinced enough to go and buy two FRER and it came up immediately! Another BFP even darker tonight with FRER! None of the tests were taken with FMU!

I have had less symptoms this month than any month before! And truly, the only thing that really made me think I was out (the cramping) was the one clue it happened! Haha. Funny how that goes!

Best wishes to all of you and have faith! It just might happen when you least expect it. XOXO

Be patient and Trust!

Posted by Alliebug6
My husband and I had our first baby (Benjamin) on December 7, 2012 and in June 2013 we decided "unofficially" to start trying again. At that point I don't think we were ready to say it out loud, because we did just have a baby not that long ago, lol. But we want 4-5 children and all preferably close in age so we stopped using protection and just hoped for the best. For me, it was a bigger devastation each month AF showed, my dear husband had no idea how eager I was to become pregnant again. In September we "officially" started trying again! At this point I felt comfortable with telling him, "hey, I ovulate tomorrow, so we need to get to it!" lol But two more cycles passed and still no BFP.

In October 2013 I started going into a slight panic mode. I felt like if I didn't obsess over getting pregnant it just wasn't going to happen again...we I didn't get pregnant. In fact it was my worst cycle ever. I thought I was feeling all sorts of "symptoms" and I was taking pregnancy tests everyday with hopes of seeing double pink lines and to top things off my period was even four days late. (something that had NEVER happened except for when I had been pregnant with my first) Well AF showed and it was another moth of being devastated.

I decided that I was not going to even think about pregnancy the next month. No cycle charting and symptom spotting, no early pregnancy testing or ovulation tests either. My anxiety went completely away. I knew when my fertile week was an when my expected ovulation day was and my hubby and I simply loved each other over the course of that week. =P The 2 week wait was not horrible, in fact I didn't even keep track of Days Past ovulation (DPO)

On December 6, 2013 at 2am I woke up because I had to pee! =P But something in me told me to just go ahead and take the pregnancy test. SO at 12 dpo I got that beautiful BFP. It may have been faint, but it was positive. I realized that by stressing and worrying about getting pregnant it put too much stress and pressure on my body, but when I relaxed, it happened!

SO to any ladies out there who have been worrying and stressing, try to be patient and just trust that your body will become pregnant at the right time. I know I have never struggled with complications of getting pregnant like PCOS, so I may not have the best success story for you if that is what you are struggling with. BUT I think the principle is the same. =)

Good luck to every one of you TTC right now. Best of luck and baby dust! And if you get that BFP soon, come look me up on Countdown My Pregnancy! =)
