Hello Ladies! I haven’t been on these boards this month, but I was active in previous months. I wanted to do two things, first announce my BFP!!! EEEK, I’m still in shock and disbelief.
I also wanted to go day by day with my symptoms to try to help out those who are worried and symptom spotting:
DPO 1-3: slight breast tenderness, bloating, creamy CM
DPO 4-5: sticky SM, bloating, breast tenderness
DPO 6-8: creamy CM, bloating (breast tenderness going away)
DPO 9: Dry, bloating going away, no breast tenderness, AF like cramps, light spotting (red) once when I wiped, weepy (I fell asleep crying thinking I was getting AF)
DPO 10:  Temp increase, Dry CM, breast slightly full feeling, AF like cramps and BFP in the early evening (first test I took this cycle)!
DPO 11 (today): dry, breast a little bigger but feel normal, too excited to sleep, cervix still firm and closed, still BFP (tested again)
Some things to highlight, I’m not fatigued, I still have AF like cramps (just not as painful) that are not specific to one side, my boobs look and feel the same as they do prior to AF, there are no changes in my nipples. Basically, I want to stress that I feel like I normally prior to AF, in fact, I felt more pregnant in months 2 and 3 (when I wasn’t) than I do now. Symptom spotting is EVIL!!!

So, some pictures of the BFP and my dog wearing her “my life is about to change forever” t-shirt. I truly hope to see each of you on the pregnancy boards very soon! Baby dust to everyone!

Thank you! The lines shocked me, I was not expecting to be pregnant and I was not expecting the lines to be that clear, I thought at 10 DPO, I would be squinting.

I’m a latecomer to the thread–mostly because I’ve only just gotten back on WB post-wedding–but here goes…

 

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD20/2DPO

Ovulation Date: 5/15

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: May 29/30 days

Cycles Trying: Technically our second; we tried in January, but nada, and we’ve been NTNP since.

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals all through cycle.  EPO, green tea, and grapefruit juice from CD1-O.  Mucinex from CD13-CD18 (fertile window).  B6 and ground flaxseed from CD19 on.  Timing BD by fertile CM, used Preseed on O day because CM was *too* thin–just watery, not EWCM.  Stayed lying down for 2-4 hours after BDing with my hips elevated.  (Can you tell that I have serious baby fever here? Tongue Out) Hubby and I use NFP, so we have almost 6 months’ worth of paper charts, but I just started using FF this month.

Link to Chart, if any: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/44ab11

Any fun summer plans?: Going east to meet some extended family for the first time in late summer…should be fun!

@esqbee:  Thanks, I got the t-shirt on cafe press. She doesn’t photograph very well, but at least in this picture her eyes aren’t glowing (they are so big, flash photography make them glow)

I was out for May, sorry! I will probably be more like the tail end of May for POAS timing (esp if I can’t wait til AF is late) because of May having 31 days.
