Very excited to be back on the boards! Tonight my Darling Husband asked if we could start trying again and I had just been feeling ready myself (CP in May really affected us emotionally) so I’m back in the game!

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD9

Ovulation Date: could be anywhere between August 5th to August 13th (I have super wonky cycles)

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:not sure yet, could be from August 23rd to the 27th

Cycles Trying: #3, had a CP in May and was ntnp for a few cycles, but we are ready to try again.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): relax, bd lots in fertile time, try not to worry 🙂

and for fun – Do you have any fun plans to end your summer (or winter)? 

I am getting ready to start my first year as a middle school teacher so I am very busy prepping! A May baby would be perfect for me so I can get through most of my first year. Plus I am a May baby myself!

My body is so confused. Last month, it geared up for O twice. The first time, my OPKs got progressively darker then lighter but no + around my normal O time (CD 13). I figured I just missed my surge since I was working 12 hr shifts. Then I continued to have lots of EWCM so I tested again and got an obvious + for CD 16. AF was late, but only because O was late. Still had my normal super short 7 day luteal phase. I continued to have lots of creamy CM right up to AF. AF was a little different this month. Normally I have an even 3 days. No spotting. Starts heavy and just stops. This time the 3 days were normal but I continued to spot for 2 more days. I’ve had lots of creamy CM since and started OPKs today just to watch the progression and the first one was an obvious +. How in the world did my body go from CD 16 to CD 6?! I was temping but I dropped my thermometer in the toilet the other day and haven’t replaced it. I guess this OPK could just be hormonal and not an actual O? But it’s definitely positive!

OOOMMMGGG. Well after my last post, I did some googling just out of curiosity (and hope!) Apparently you can still have AF and be pregnant and OPKs can show + when pregnant. I took that OPK right before a bath and did my googling in the bath (one day I’m going to drop my phone in the water!) So I got out after about 15 min and decided I have some pregnancy tests to use, so why not? Well this is about 15-20 min of holding my urine:

 

I’m going to hold my urine for 3-4 hrs and retest but I’m pretty sure I see something!!!

Well I waited 2 1/2 hours and went and got 2 other kinds of tests just to be sure. 

I still can’t believe AF came and 2 days later I get a BFP!! No complaints, though. Good luck and baby dust to everyone!! 🙂

Oh, and one thing I forgot to mention I used this cycle was the Instead Soft Cups after BD. I would put them in right after and leave them in for 12 hours. Also used B6 and a B-Complex.

Ellie85: that is an amazing story! Congratulations! I’m so very excited that you got your bfp after all the confusing signs your body was throwing out. I’m wondering what your chart would look like and if the cheapies plus charting would’ve given you a much better indication of what was going on. Can you post your chart with whatever you have so we can see? Again, all the very best for a healthy 9 months!

Gypsygal6:  I’m not sure how to link it like normal but here are screenshots from my phone:

My temps were ALL over the place. I work night shift and work 6 days on, 8 off. So my sleep schedule is ridiculous and I figure that was the cause of the crazy temps. And then I forgot a lot of days until after I was already good and awake and didn’t want to temp and it be inaccurate. But I had a significant drop right before AF, so I just knew she was coming! I also had REALLY sore nipples from 2 DPO until that temp drop. And then the pain just went away. But they were more sore than they’d been before any other AFs and lasted way longer than usual.  I’m just shocked that I now have a BFP. I’ve never had a + OPK (or even close to it) this early and I’ve never had one as dark as that one was which is what lead me to test. But seriously, I thought I would test and it would just be negative.
