A little backgroundâ?¦my DH and I conceived our DD in 2003 while I was on the mini pill and had used Plan B (morning after pill) because I had forgotten to take my pill at the right time the night before. He was still in college and I was just graduated and looking for a job. Needless to say our surprise was a miracle meant to be and we have been a happy little family since she arrived in 2004. :) Now, 9 years later, we are expecting #2! I just got my BFP last night on a digital at about 13 DPO! A little bit unplanned, but also a little bit planned... certainly hoped forâ?¦ certainly obsessed over for the two week wait! I wanted it so bad, but never thought that a first â??tryâ?? would be successful. For the past 9 years, we've been using natural family planning methods, but no birth control. We havenâ??t gotten pregnant since the first time with DD. I have baby fever and knew I was in my fertile time frame when we BD'd this month. Thatâ??s why I say it was a little bit planned; I knew that it would be a possibility if we BDâ??d that day, and I was hoping deep down that it would work out. I hope this baby sticks. I donâ??t know how to best break the news to my 8 yr old DD though. She has said offhandedly that she hopes we donâ??t have another baby because she likes being an only child. Any suggestions? Itâ??s been so long, I feel like weâ??re starting totally from scratch. So exciting though!
Specifics for those like me who need to read every detail during the TWW. I usually have regular 28 day cycles, I donâ??t chart my BBT or know exactly when I ovulate, but I think my guess is pretty close based on CM and the ovulation pain I can feel.
Estimated day of ovulation 1/25/13
BDâ??d 1/26/13- ONE TIME!!! Crazy.
2 DPO- hungry (unrelated?)
3 DPO- hungry, faint crampy feeling in uterus
4 DPO- hungry, pretty strong crampy feeling (kindof like pre-cramps you get during PMS), so strong I had a hard time falling asleep, thought it was odd since AF wasnâ??t due for 10 more days.
5 DPO- constipated, crampy, pressure in uterus, minor pain in breasts, lower back pain (I get that all the time though), frequent urination, OMG two weeks is too long to wait!
6 DPO- donâ??t think Iâ??m preggo, but Iâ??m writing everything down anyway, constipated, freq. urination, lower back pain, super crampy, AF must be coming early.
7 DPO- no noticeable symptoms today (sad)- drank 2 glasses of wine and a beer with friends, woke up with insomnia
8 DPO- tired (see insomnia night before), hungry hungry hippo, cramps, tender breasts, started taking vitamins with folic acid decide to cut back on coffee and avoid alcohol until I know
9 DPO- headache, super creamy wet CM (implantation? Progesterone surge?), hungry, tired, not as crampy, donâ??t want to get hopes up, have a tiny bit of wine at an event
10 DPO- little nausea, little crampy
11 DPO- little nausea, no other symptoms (busy day, no time to obsess over every detail), prayed earnestly to God with my hopes (not common for me) and fears
12 DPO- tested with FMU with First Response Early Result. Faint Pink within 3 mins. I tell myself itâ??s probably a false positive. AF is due in two days. I will wait. Meanwhile, posted the image on this forum and everyone voted positive. Hubby doesnâ??t believe me. Ha.
13 DPO- AF due tomorrow, little crampy feelings, frequent urination, breasts sensitive, obsessing over this site and everyoneâ??s test photos. Tell myself I will wait to test till I miss AF. I donâ??t wait. I go to pharmacy as soon as I get off work, go home and test with new digital test. HOLY MOLY. BFP!!!!! Yay! Switch to decaf! DH is now recovered from his initial shock and Iâ??m over the moon happy. OVER. THE. MOON!
Wish me luck!
