Happy Easter, Bees!


==========

Quick TTC background: Went off BCP in April 2012 to try for #2. Had long anovulatory cycles. Diagnosed with “subtle PCOS” and was put on Metformin in November. Still had an extremely long cycle (91 days) and was put on Provera to bring on AF. Actually had a +OPK (first one I’ve ever documented) and at 12DPO, voila! BFP! Just right before the 1 year mark.

How / When did you find out: A friend of mine at work bumped into me by accident and I made a comment about how it hurt coz my breasts have been so tender. She made the comment that I might be pregnant. I took a test the next day and she was right! 

How did you / will you tell SO: He was at work so I asked him on chat “If we weren’t on a budget today, where would you like to eat for lunch?”, he told me and that’s where we went. I told him to sit across from me (so I could see his reaction when I told him). I was gonna wait ’til we at least got our appetizer but he got suspicious and said “Steph… why are you smiling? Did you test today?” I tried to play innocent and said “No..” and he asked again and this time, and I just smiled, with tears in my eyes and nodded. Then I asked him to sit next to me like he usually does πŸ™‚

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD, etc.): OPKs, metformin, FertileCM, Femaprin, and BD at least every other day since we didn’t know when we were ovulating. I would stay in bed at least 30mins after BD.

Cycles Trying: 6 cycles over 11 months.

Anything new this cycle: FertileCM, Femaprin

Symptoms: Tender breasts, twinges, and vivid dreams were the major ones since they don’t normally happen to me even before AF.

Quick TTC background: We started thinking about trying (or not not trying) for a family around 6 months ago. I was going 3-4 months at a time without AF so we did some tests and found out I’ve got PCOD. We were referred to an Ob/Gyn about fertility treatments who I was supposed to have my first appointment with next week!

How / When did you find out: Today! I hadn’t thought much about it, only that I didn’t want AF to come the day before my appointment so for some reason I thought it would make sense to check. I’d actually blamed all of my symptoms on this cold I have!

How did you / will you tell SO: I called him straight away after the first BFP! It was probably still wet lol. I was too excited to wait.

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD, etc.): At first it was NTNP, then Clomid for 2 cycles and charting for 3. Finally what did it for us was NOT EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT because we had the appointment coming up! 

Cycles Trying: about 6

Anything new this cycle: We stopped thinking about it! 

Symptoms: Boobs grew and have been very tender (I attributed this to the Clomid), Nausea (which I attributed to my cold), and reduced immune system (which would explain this blasted cold!)

@mysticgrace:  I just assumed I caught it from one of the girls at work. I did think it was a little odd that they’d just had a croaky voice and were fine the next day whhen I was sick enough to take a day off work. Mine is clearing up a bit now (back to work). Maybe it’s because my mind is on something much better than a cold! Congrats to you too, and hope your symptoms clear up soon πŸ™‚

Quick TTC background:  first cycle off BC never thought it would happen so quickly!

How / When did you find out: i tested using a FRER with FMU on the morning of 9dpo i was trying to hold out until at least 10dpo but couldnt do it and got a BFP! I spent about 5 minutes freaking out by myself in the bathroom! DH had already left for work.

How did you / will you tell SO: I wasn’t going to see him until 2 days later so i sent him a pic of the pee stick and under it wrote CALL ME!!!!!! He didnt understand at first but was so excited and in shock when i said the words “im pregnant!” I bought him a bulls onesie too but found out before i gave it to him.

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD, etc.): BD everyday in fertile window and a day after, once or twice i put my legs up aftwerwards but got tired of it after a few minutes and gave up.

Cycles Trying: 1

Anything new this cycle: lots of BD but thats not new

Symptoms: before i got my BFP none. After i have been feeling queasy and pretty crampy. Noticed the veins in my chest are extra dark, i have to pee A LOT.

@swissbride:  aww you are so sweet!! I hope you guys have it just as easy as well! FX for your BFP!! I was honestly so surprised it happened so quickly! I was very regular before going on BC so I think thats why my body got back into the swing of things so quickly. I was not charting. I did track my CM to a certain extent basically just to confirm O. I did sign up for FF and was literally so out of my element I decided if this month didn’t work then I would attempt to figure out charting for next month. I have been POAS since I got my first BFP and the lines keep getting darker, yay! I still can’t believe it’s happening! My first appt is May 8th.

Loving all of the bee-yoo-tiful lines!

I got my BFP today!!

 

How / When did you find out:  Peed on a stick this morning!

How did you / will you tell SO: I told SO after work today.  I put my pug in a t-shirt that said “I’m gonna be a big sister…January 2014”.   He was super happy, but the bugger rummaged through the garbage can looking for pee sticks this morning, so he already had an idea.  Can you believe it?

TTC strategy (charting, OPKs, supplements, lying down after BD,  etc.): OPK’s (tried the expensive Clearblue ones for the first time this month), started prenatal vitamins this month (just took regular ones before), every other day BD’ing, every day BD’ing after positive OPK, legs up in the air after BD, drank green tea

Cycles Trying: 9

Anything new this cycle:  see strategy above

Symptoms: Bloated/crampy feeling.  Not like sharp cramps, like one big unhappy belly feeling.  Extreme mood swing the other night (like crying for no reason whatsoever).
