- Wedding: September 2012
Quick TTC background: We decided to start trying in June, although we weren’t really giving it 100%. Every time it was my FW, something came up…or he was exhausted…or I was exhausted. I was SO sad last cycle that we only BD’d once during my window. We had a big talk about what we would do differently next cycle, because we were positive we would not be successful! Boy did we get that wrong too!
How / When did you find out: Just today…I stopped and bought a test on my way home from work. I tried to hold my pee for 4hrs, but only made it to three….I didn’t even tell my husband I was testing!
How did you / will you tell SO: He’s in a very bad mood, and was sitting quietly in the basement (aka mancave) when I tested. I saw the positive test come up, and kind of freaked out a little bit!! I thought I should wait to tell him until tomorrow. Yes. That’s what I’ll do. I made up my mind. But before I knew it I was running down the stairs full speed, flipping on all the lights in the basement declaring, “I think we’ve got the motivation we need to eat healthier!!!!” waving the test in the air! It’s like I was possessed!
TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD, etc.): I’ve been charting, taking my prenatal vitamins. and this cycle I tried grapefruit juice. I’m not sure if I owe it to the grapefruit juice, but it sure is coincidental!
Cycles Trying: 3
Anything new this cycle: This cycle I tried grapefruit juice. I’m not sure if I owe it to the grapefruit juice, but it sure is coincidental!
Symptoms: My boobs are HUGE, and very tender. Also, I’ve been constipated which is very rare for me. I’m regular like clockwork. My lower tummy feels so full, like I’ve gotta go, but nothing is happening. Yawning like crazy and going to bed early (I just thought I was fighting something), and last night during So You Think You Can Dance Finale, I was a blubbering fool.
Link to your pregnant chart (if you have one): Not sure how to put a link in….but here’s a picture of my chart 🙂
Picture of the two beautiful lines: I still can’t believe it!! My husband doesn’t 100% believe it yet, so I’m going to test again in the morning with a FMU to prove it to him! This is after a 3hr hold 🙂
