My update: I’m at CD20, can’t tell you if/when I o’d as I hadn’t gotten a positive OPK before I ran out and didn’t buy more. I purchased a CBFM for my next cycle – so used to disappointment and failed cycles that I’m planning the next already! Still doing AP, herbs and bee pollen. Heading into cycle 13, if we aren’t KU after 13, its off to the docs

Hope all you ladies are staying positive and doing well!

Girls…I’m pregnant.

I tested at 12DPO using FMU and saw two lines!!! DH and I hugged and cried so many happy tears! I’m still in shock! We were heading into the much dreaded cycle 12.

Our TTC struggles have been both male and female factors. DH has 0% morphology and mine are elevated FSH (which have gone down recently) and a possible septate uterus. With my septate uterus, I know we’re not out of the woods yet. People with septate uterus have a higher chance of m/c.

But, you girls have taught me so much. I am going to take things one day at a time, and embrace every day. I am pregnant today! And I feel so absolutely blessed. Thank you my dears for all your support.

…and yes, the PP did it!

@babybunny:  THANK YOU SO MUCH LADIES!!!

I’m trying to pinpoint what we did differently this month, and really, it’s the PP! I’ve been going to AP regularly (does wonders for my stress levels) and we used preseed (as a lube, not with applicator).

No real symptoms other than tender breasts which started at 2DPO! That’s the earliest ever. I don’t feel particularly tired, crampy or bloated. I think that’s why I’m still in disbelief this is all happening.

It’s been such a surreal few days mixed with fear, joy, fear, disbelief and oh yea, fear. I am rooting for you all and hoping this thread will have even more graduates!

@MrsLantern:  I can’t even imagine the emotions you must be going through!

I had a bit of a bummer Sunday.  An older lady at church asked me if I was pregnant and I shook my head no.  She pulled me aside and said, “Well there were some girls on the church steps talking about it.” I asked her who it was (gosh I hate gossiping–a reminder to be more aware about this myself in the future) and then the real kicker:  “You know you really should stop wearing heels.  It can tip your womb and cause troubles.  Maybe you should try that.”  I was starting to tear up at that point so I ran off to the bathroom in the church basement dried my eyes.  When I came out of the bathroom, she was waiting for me and actually apologized and told me she wasn’t trying to be a nosy old lady.  Cue more tears.  She started crying too and gave me a big hug.  I fled from the church, but not before frenemy (the girl who is having #3 in 3 years and kept asking me about being pregnant) saw me and was like, “MrsFarmer, are you ok?”  I was fleeing so I quickly said, “I’m fine” and left before anyone else could accost me.

I feel so embarassed that I just lost it.  Especially in front of the frenemy and a bunch of other people at the church who saw me before I could escape.  DH says I need to learn how to handle these situations without breaking down or being standoffish, my two common reactions (and coincidentally, these incidents ALWAYS occur when he isn’t around), but I just can’t tell people, “F, off.”  I’m don’t have quick reactions or comebacks, so then I just flounder around the issue.

I’m not always this emotional, but it’s a sure PMS sign.  DH swears that I’m always emotional 5 days before AF and I’ve generally found that to be true, but never noticed the pattern until he pointed it out, so that’s probably the reason.  :S

@MrsFarmer:  what a no good rotten day.  I am so sorry that happened to you.  Some people are so insensitive with their “helpfull” advice. Im sorry it happened in front of a frenemy too. (HUGS)

@MrsFarmer:  I am so sorry. I feel like there are people that must be missing the “common sense” gene. When did it become ok to ask people if they are pregnant and then give advice as to why you may not be. I thought everyone knew that you just don’t ask people if they are pregnant…obviously not. I’m sorry you have to deal with this and I’m sorry there isn’t a great response. I’ve said “we’re working on it” or “it’s not as easy as everyone thinks” that usually shuts people up.

@MrsFarmer:  I am so sorry that you had to deal with that… unsolicited TTC advice is just the worst. I would have reacted the exact same way. ((big hugs))
