So, uh, I’d roll call, but this happened today:
That’s a FRER at 13 DPO, mid-afternoon, barely a 2 hour hold. Yes, I know I said I’d hold out until 15 DPO, but something today just made me feel like things were different and that I needed to test.
I can hardly believe it. I was home sick today and waved it in DH’s face right when he walked in the door after work, lol — we are not really “big reveal” types anyway, but he picked me up and spun me around the living room and then we proceeded to have a collective OMG moment on the couch. He is over the moon 🙂

Random question: What’s your biggest non-charting/baby-related goal in the next month? Starting weight training again. Tonight at the gym I did some light weights for arms/shoulders and it’s been such a long time since I’ve used those muscles! I’ve been trying to get back to the gym in general over the past few weeks but have been focusing on cardio when I go.
Poll question: Wine all the way! My fave is malbec, followed closely by cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir. Mmmm!

- Wedding: August 2013 - backyard in the woods
Cycles TTC/Charting: 15 TTC, 12 Charting, 7 month pause for medical reasons mixed in.
Age: Me:32, DH:39
POAS/AF Date: February 23rd
BFP Plan and/or Known Issues:
Issues: Severe Endometriosis removed via multiple surgeries and some medically induced menopuase.
BFP Plan: I take prenatals, calcium, vitamen D, baby asprin, CoQ10 and drink green tea before O for increased CM. I used PreSeed for the first time this cycle and plan to continue. I’m thinking of switching to a prenatal with folate as I read that a genetic mutation that makes your body not able to use folic acid properly is actually autoimmune related, and I’ve got autoimmune disease, as does every memmber of my immediate family, in spades. Silly teaching genetics this semster making me second guess my plan lol. It won’t hurt and could possibly help, so I’m considering. I hate swallowing pills though, especially big vitamen sized pills (I dont want to give up my gummy prenatal for horse pills lol). Do any of you know of a prenatal with folate (or a separate supplement) that is small and easy to swallow?

Random question: What’s your biggest non-charting/baby-related goal in the next month?I need to start preparing my summer class that I’m designing.

Yay congrats! Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months! And holding out until 13DPO is quite a feat in itself. A lot of us lack the self restraint to hold out even that long!
I’m silently stalking this thread and everyone’s chart and rooting for all those TTC! We’ve had lots of charter success this month so I’m hoping for lots of baby dust from all of the BFPs to trickle down. Looks like there was lots of successful timing of BD, IUIs and HIs! FX for everyone!!!
