Long story, with cole’s notes to follow 🙂
Long story: DH and I have been TTC for four cycles now. This was the first one using OPKs (I work out of town and don’r generally bring them with me) we were able to hit o-3, 0-2, 0-1, o and 0+1 (It’s does not hurt that I came home from a six day stint on o-3) at first I was positive that this was *our* cycle. Then I startedto get really depressed, like severly. I have battled depression for a while so I thought it was just normal and I would get over it. All I could think is ‘I’m NOT pregnant”. I had symptoms mainly an odd piching in my left ovary, that I was doing my best to ignore. The smell of feta was disgusting to me (I love feta) and I was having bouts of nausea. All of which are faily normal for me.
I woke up early on Saturday, the day that AF was due, took my temperature and there was a rise, higher than normal. I laid there toying with the idea of testing, because I had packed a FRER, but did not want to have to get up and go to work feeling sad and depressed if it was negative. I gave into the urge, peed in a cup and dipped away. I put the test flat on the sink and didn’t even look at it because I was scared to be dissapointed. Of course I grabbed it after 30 seconds.
There it was and unmistakeable second line, and what a line it was! Damn thing was DARK! I sat on my bed laughing and then I started crying. I did not know what to do. I took a photo of it (lol) and was in utter disbelief. …. and had NO cell phone reception I couldn’t even call anyone!
Fast forward: I told my husband that I would be late getting home and to please wait until I called for him to pick me up, that was a little lie. I called my mom and asked her to pleas pick me up instead, and of course she started asking why…. she knew. When she picked me up she brought my dad with her (danggit!!) so I had to tell them and asked them to take me to A&W so that I could get a Papa burger and a Baby burger for DH.
I was dropped off at home, and stuffed the burgers in my purse, told him I had bought him a present and gave him the bag, he knew right away what was going on (and I got the whole thing on tape) he kept saying ‘really? really? are you sure?” YES I”M SURE!!! He then asked me if I had another test, he needed another test to be sure. I tried explaining the whole FMU thing to him, but I did have another FRER, I peed on it, and the pregnant line came up before the control line. I handed it to him and he jsut stared at it.
I went to the doctor this morning, who was amazing and patient with me, and he confirmed yes yes I am pregnant!!! And due on my parent’s 34th wedding anniversary !!!
I’m so excited.
