- Wedding: April 2014
Whoa there are already a TON of pages on this thread! I am suuuper nervous to join you ladies, but I am more hopeful this time. So, here goes nothing…
Due date: Should be August 25
How many DPO were you when you got your BFP (if you were tracking?): 11 DPO. Totally was not going to test. I’d used all of my wondfos up last cycle and refused to buy more. I had one FRER and two digitals that I didn’t want to waste, so I was not going to test until I was late at 14 dpo. But I tested and it didn’t go to waste!
How long did you try before your BFP? 7 cycles total of trying (plus 1 of avoiding…regret that cycle.) We got pregnant in cycle 3 and it was a chemical. Then we avoided in cycle 4. I tried 3 cycles of Femara after that. And then I quit femara this cycle because I hated the side effects and that did the trick!
If trying for awhile, what was different this month? Didn’t try as hard. We didn’t do every other day. By this point, I knew I ovulated on CD 14 so I just told DH we had to hit CD 12 and besides that, just whenever. Quit the Femara. Quit all the extra vitamins besides prenatals. Pretty much just temped.
Is this your first child? Yes. Can’t wait!!!
Any symptoms yet? Not really. I’ve been gassy and hungry. Oh and I am having lots of dull cramps. I will get a little nausous if I get too hungry, but I get that way normally anyway. I am ready for symptoms so this feels more real.
What are you most excited about? Everything! Telling our parents, having a bump, finding out the gender (still unsure if we will find out before birth or not!), decorating the nursery, and most importantly, having a son or daughter!
What are you most nervous about? Another miscarriage.
What will you miss most while pregnant? HOT baths!!! Oh, and cheese dip from Mexican restaurants.
Who have you told so far? DH and my two best friends. We are going to tell our parents at Christmas. And I’m going to have to tell my coworkers because I’m an ICU nurse and we don’t have techs in our dept so we do all of the pulling patients and such. Plus, we get a lot of combative people so I don’t need to take them.
Include a picture of your BFP if you want! These were both yesterday at 11 DPO!
