Just last night I was crying over spotting I thought was my period coming in at 8dpo!! I typically start my period on 10-11 dpo.....leaving me a 9-10 day luteal phase!! I just got my BFP this morning on 9dpo after 4 months of TTC and using digital ovulation tests. This month I did not even get a pos opk until cd21 and cd22!! Today is cd 31 and I received strong positives on both first responses and clearblue digital. Total shock!!
Conception with a short luteal phase IS possible ladies!!!
What we did differently this cycle was...
LOTS of BD!!! Like to the point where we were completely worn out! 5 times during days of positive opk.
Elevated my legs after sex and not get out of bed whatsoever after.
I had very uncomfortable AF style cramping from 1 dpo until 7 dpo. I also felt terrible cramping last night at 8dpo but only when that little bugger implanted! I also had pink blood when wiping immediately after the sharp cramp at 8dpo I literally felt implantation! Crazy!!!
Woke up today (9 dpo) completely sick and threw up...followed by a freaking positive preg test! So in shock still.
The constant cramping this cycle reallllllly made me feel like something was actually GOING ON IN THERE!
That has been my only sign or symptom until the vomit episode this morning! Haha! Sorry TMI.
Also, for those cervix checkers out there....mine has stayed in the same exact place since ovulation (very high) and is just totally firm/hard instead of the softer it was at O time. Usually right before AF it drops significantly lower and gets super soft and open.
Oh...I've also had terrible headaches and VERY intense dreams. Haven't been sleepy ONE BIT like everyone else seems to be after O and before their BFP!
Hope this helps!
