I’m going to be open and honest about this whole situation – I live vicariously through this thread! hehe. Can’t wait for the day when I can post my own, but for now…not even TTC yet! Thanks for all the smiles you lucky pregnant bees bring me! xx

How / When did you find out: Yesterday morning. I intended to test with my husband but the waiting was killing me so I cracked! The line showed up immediately, actually before the control line showed up.  Oops, guess I didn’t need to wait so long to test!

How did you / will you tell SO: told him as soon as he walked in the door from work. He was sweaty from his bike commute home and tried to shrug me off because he didn’t know why I was all over him, haha!

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD, etc.): original intent was O-1/O/O+1, but I ovulated later than I thought, so once I figured that out we only had time to squeeze in O and O+1, along with what turned out to be O-3, 4, and 5 from what I thought was ovulation. Funny because last cycle our timing was perfect, but no dice!

Cycles Trying: this was #2

Anything new this cycle: baby aspirin and bromelain

Symptoms: nasty head cold right after ovulation, a few waves of dizziness and nausea, and finally sore boobs, which is NOT a pms symptom of mine so it seemed suspicious.

Link to your pregnant chart (if you have one): Not linkable, I use an app called Selene.

Quick TTC background: DH and I started TTC in August, 2012.  We started fertility testing around February, 2013.  After so many failed cycles, we finally went to a RE and started IUI treatment in July, 2013.  We had two failed IUIs and started talks with our RE that IVF would be the next step.  We went for our third and final IUI in August.  We didnt think it would work and since we had already talked and agreed to proceed with IVF, we just didnt have hopes for this cycle.  We were wrong. 

How / When did you find out: On September 3rd we got out first BFP and the lines got darker and darker the days that followed.  We couldnt believe it.  We had blood work done on the 7th and it was confirmed that were oficially pregnant.

How did you / will you tell SO: On the 4th after my secod stick got darker, I waited for him after work and showed him the sticks and explained what they meant.  He didnt think it was for real and neither did I.  We couldnt get happy or celebrate right away, but once blood work confirmed it. We cried and hugged!

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD,  etc.): IUI

Cycles Trying: 13

Anything new this cycle: I just didnt care much about it, because I was getting mentally getting ready for IVF.

Symptoms: No symptoms.  Only some spasms down south that came and went.  My DH however, is having all the symptoms, I think lol
