    Congrats to all the BFPs!!!

    What a wonderful way to start off the new year. AFM, I don’t want to get my hopes up, but I’ve been symtpom spotting for the past few days. I’m going to hold out on the POAS though since I don’t really want to see a BFN yet… I figure I’ll wait until the weekend at the earliest. I’m not sure how many DPO I am, so I’m taking a stab in the dark based on when AF is due.

    commenting to follow … Nothing new to report here, temp jumped this morning at CD 18 so fingers crossed it stays up now. I’ve had 2 months now with a late O – usually I’m super early, like CD11 early so this has been strange. We have managed EOD since AF disappeared thou so at least I know we managed to hit the window. I already told Darling Husband we’re continuing at least EOD until AF arrives just to make sure we don’t miss it this month hehe. πŸ™‚

    @BellaDee:  yeah but we are 12 cycles in, I am not sure if we could’ve maintained this level for the whole time but I have fingers crossed we might get lucky this time πŸ™‚ usually we are more like 2-3 times a week and some months I think even with temping we might’ve missed the “perfect” timing. hopefully won’t need to but if we aren’t successful this month, we will try again to be more active next month too.

    First off, THANK YOU so much for all the positive vibes today!! I still cant believe we got a BFP! Today was just such a great day. I went to bed upset last night asking Darling Husband “why am I defective” LOL. He kept saying “It’s still early”, and he was right! I took my FRER this morning, expecting a BFN, and I looked down & was shocked. I yelled for Darling Husband to come upstairs (he works from home), and we both just hugged & kissed. It was fantastic. I kept saying “HOLY CRAP” all day long, so now that is our big inside joke. Darling Husband keeps walking around the house saying “HOLY CRAP” and laughing at me. 

    I called my bestie & told her the news. She was my Maid/Matron of Honor in June, and I was her Maid/Matron of Honor in September. Her & her hubby are going to ttc this month, so its really great going through all of this with her. Luckily, shes a neonatal nurse and I am a pediatric/neonatal respiratory therapist, so we both fully understand what can still go wrong. We are both being tight lipped & staying cautiously optimistic. My bestie named our baby “Baby Z” – for Baby Zygote because I found out so early, we both laughed that its just a ball of cells right now. So, Baby Z it is until we find out the sex lol. 

    I also wanted to give an idea of what my 2ww looked like. I know that having other bees describe their symptoms really helped me a lot.

    FYI: This month we used the Clearblue Digital Advanced Ovulation Tests & Pre-Seed.

    CD 13 – Smiley face OPK. I did not have any days of flashing smileys. BD
    CD 14 – BD
    CD 15 – BD. I believe I O’d that day due to right sided cramps.
    CD 16 (1 dpo) – no symptoms 
    2dpo – no symptoms
    3dpo – no symptoms
    4dpo – mild cramping in morning & evening. Creamy “lotion like” cm in evening.
    5dpo – mild cramping in morning & evening. Creamy “lotion like” cm in evening.
    6dpo – mild cramping. Lots of creamy/watery cm, to the point I had to change my undies.  
    7dpo – Very thirsty.  Small amount of creamy cm in evening. Mild cramps. Low back pain that woke me up at 5am – biggest reason that I thought something was up this month. 
    8dpo – Low backache, breasts on fire but not tender, slight dizziness, small amount of creamy cm.
    9dpo – Small amount of backpain. Small amount of creamy cm. Very tired.
    10dpo – mild cramping.
    11dpo – BFP with FRER. (Wondfo BFN). Cramping all day, absolutely exhausted, mild nausea. 

    Hope this helps someone πŸ™‚

    Okay…. I PROMISE, once I get through one cycle and get it all figured out, I will ask less questions πŸ™‚

    So I think I finally ovulated. After 5 days of blinking at 2 days of Peak. This morning I had a “wet” feeling all day and then I had these weird cramps for about three hours today. My pelvis was contracting like a muscle does after you work out really hard. I dont think I was making it up. But I cant believe I have never noticed it before.

    With that being said…. do we BD tonight…. we have been going for 8 days! Or can I finally take a break πŸ™‚
