- Wedding: August 2013
My husband and I had been TTC since January, but then stopped because I had a weird pap (which turned out to be nothing, thankfully) and had to get a biopsy and I just wanted to chill out a bit and get my health in order. I’m very active, eat healthy, but have a really terrible family history of cancer – parent, grandparents, aunts and uncles and I ended up with a few more scares this year than necessary! My nerves were pretty much shot and that doesn’t really help when you’re trying to make another human 🙂
We took about 2 months off from actively trying. We started again in April with nothing really even being close to “could this be it?”.
This month, however, is a little weird:
I’m 9 DPO and have felt more exhausted than I have ever felt in my life. I thought I had the flu all week last week, I ended up going home mid-day because I was so tired and achy I thought I was gong to pass out on my desk. On Friday morning I felt like a bus hit me and stayed home and worked remotely.
Now, my boobs aren’t sore, I’ve had no implantation bleeding, but I’ve felt off. My stomach feels like I’ve done a million crunches, I have these strange twinges on my sides every now and then….I caved in and took a few HPTs, starting at 6 DPO which I realize is likely ridiculous
lines popped up on the Wondfos I used! I tested about 7, no joke, because I can’t control myself. I did a few on Friday, a few on Saturday, a few on Sunday. Each day the lines got darker. I tested my husband to make sure these weren’t evap lines and to ensure the batch wasn’t bad. His test was stark white.
I’ve been using Wondfos but I also have FRER tests at home that I am saving until I am closer to the time AF gets here. Does this all sound like I could very well be pregnant? It’s all I can think about right now and I don’t want to get my hopes too high.
Here’s a pic of my test from this morning:
What do you all think? Adive? Suggestions? I know I need to relax, but I just really want to be a mom!
