After a total of 15 months in 2 years of TTC, and 5 months ago we stopped trying, and even avoided getting pregnant, we shockingly got a BFP!! I tested Sunday with the faintest of a faint, Monday morning the line got darker. I went to get blood drawn, they said I will get a phone call at the end of the day. I was impatient and got digitals, and even after peeing already 4 times that day, the digital showed "PREGNANT" in the window!!
I got a phone call from the doctor last night and the blood results are positive and according to my LMP my due date is July 4th, 2013, and today I am 3 weeks 5 days pregnant! My weeks turn over on Thursday!
I am in SHOCK and SO happy!
Good luck and truck loads of baby dust to you all!!!!!View Thread
I haven't been on here for MONTHS! I can't remember my last update. Well, we are holding off on baby #3 until further notice. We have been for a couple months. I keep going back and forth from trying again when I graduate (May 2013) or wait until after our Vegas trip (Jan 2014) or in a couple months.
Well, hubby & I ended up BD-ing on a fertile day(we didn't plan for that. It just happened. Lol) and now I'm in the 2WW. I'm 10 or 11 DPO and thought I'd take a test this morning. I took an internet cheapie and there is the faintest of faint discoloration in the test line. I know people say a faint line is still positive, but I'm not going to say that right now. It's a cheapie and a brand I've never used before and I don't know if it's just the way the test is.
I have no symptoms other than the usual sore boobs I get a week leading up to AF and I'm getting off and on cramps like AF is about to bust through the door any minute.
I'll be taking cheapies every day until this weekend, or until AF shows up. If she doesn't by Friday, I'll get a digital and take that Saturday morning.
I'm not getting my hopes up, but I'd be shocked if it's positive. We've tried for a LONG time for baby #3, and if I'm pregnant...we got pregnant while we weren't trying. Haha!
I know what ya mean! I want to get pregnant right now, but financial it scares the heck outta me! We've been pregnant with less $$ before, but it scares me more financially this time around than before. But, if it happens, we have a great support system and we always figure out how to handle it.
Hi ladies! I am now on CD16! This cycle and last cycle were 30 days apart, when before it was an average of 26-27 days. So, according to my fertility friend app & period app, O-day is the 24th. I started temping on CD 10 (I know it was late, but I was sick & had fevers off an on for over a week there & just didn't chart) and it was high, then had a dip on CD 13, and it's been rising ever since. I've had EWCM for like 5 days now-which is a really long time for me. I don't know if it's normal to have it for 5 days, but for me, it's a really long time. AND I had what I thought was a positive OPK on CD12. I say that because it was progressively getting darker a few days before CD 12, then on CD12 it was dark, but not as dark as the test line. Maybe a shade or 2 lighter, then the next 3 days it was stark white. Now, yesterday I was getting color on my OPKs again. (I decided to keep taking them after the stark white ones because I just wanted to be sure that was it). It was a really light color yesterday then today it looks as dark as it was on CD 12 where I thought it was a positive. I have a feeling tomorrow it will be probably as dark or darker than the control line. My chart on fertility friend hasn't detected an ovulation day yet, so I'm assuming that the 1st "positive" was not really a positive? But I'm just wondering why I'm having 2 "rounds" of progressively darker results? Anyone experience this before?? And no I'm not pregnant, because I did take an HPT after seeing this second round of OPKs. I'm just at a loss for this cycle because I lost all of my information on my cycles that were on my apps on my phone. I had to get a new phone, and I thought all that information would be transferred but it wasn't, so now I feel lost with this cycle because I have nothing to look back on. Plus it was so off from my last one.View Thread
I tested on the 4th. BFN. AF started on the 7th. I have been doing a lot of thinking and talked with DH. I do have a known hormonal issue that the doctor told me about. That is why it's not easy for us this time around. Also, I recently just got accepted into my MA program and I will be graduating in like 9-10 months! I thought I had another 2 years left! And a week after I graduate, I will do 4 weeks of internship. We're thinking of holding off for a couple months again. Just in case that miracle happened and would put me in labor as I got my diploma or in the middle of my internship. There is no putting off my internship. As much as it frustrates me to put off for another couple months after trying again from another put-off, I don't want to push back graduating after learning it'll be in less than a year when I thought I had 2 left! Though I'm in that state of mind where I honestly will do anything to get pregnant right now and am actually willing to put off school for awhile just for it, but...then again, that will pro-long graduation. It's logical and irritating. But DH thinks that maybe if we give it a little longer, my body will readjust itself hormonally like it's supposed to. I've been off BCP long enough to where it should be out of my system, but it royally screwed me up. So, we figure to try again in December-January. I just can't believe I'll be done with college WAY before I thought I would be! It's good, but I'm frustrated that it put another halt on baby #3. Pooh... View Thread
Thanks. I'm in the 2ww now, with no idea when I ovulated. Haha! I could either be 10DPO or 6DPO. I'll test the morning of the 4th, just to see what it comes up as. If it's a BFP, that'd be awesome for the 4th! If it's a BFN, then I'll wait until the 8th to test again unless AF shows up by then.View Thread
Yes, some test are different and every body and every pregnancy is different. I found out I was pregnant a week before AF was due with my 1st, and I tested from 5 days before AF was due with my 2nd, but nothing showed up on the tests until 2 days after AF was supposed to show up. I would test anyways. And if it is a BFN, just wait another couple of days and test again if still no AF. I'm the same exact way with the pee stick/AF ordeal. I swear, every time I pee on a stick, that very same evening AF comes. It never fails! Good luck!!!View Thread
Ok, yes, I'm pimping myself out. I have a facebook profile that I hope some of you click on & add me. This is not my personal FB, it is a TTC/mommy FB profile, but I do share my personal life on it. I just don't have friends/family on it. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003551321936
And a YouTube channel, but I will not share that on here at this time. Lol. I don't have much on it yet.
I'm just reaching out in this community & making friends. I remember 1st coming on here in October & there's a handful of you (most who have gotten BFPs since) that I wouldn't mind keeping in touch with. I really do feel like I made some sort of friendship on here with some of you.
That is all! Good luck & baby dust to everyone!! View Thread
