What number are you TTC (First,second etc.)?
Third

How many cycles of active TTC before you got this BFP?
Too many to count, but 6 months obsessively trying.

Did you temp, use OPKs, check CM, chart?
OPKs initially, but have only been checking CM for months now.

Did you ovulate regularly?
Yes

What was your strategy? OR What did you do differently this cycle?OR what is the one thing or combination of things that you think directly contributed to this BFP?
I still don't know how this happened. DH and I hardly DTD during my peak fertility time...One thing I would like to mention is that I had been under a tremendous amount of stress in recent months, so towards the end of last year I went away for a month, and came back with a new attitude - kind of was like pushing a reset button on my life. Coincidence or not, I was a lot less frazzled this month.


Did you take a suplements, herbals? Special diet?
Prenatals, as I have been for months. Lemon water every morning, Mucinex for the 5 days leading up to O, whole fresh pineapple 1-6DPO.

What did your DH do to 'help'?
He agreed to keep his sensitive parts out of hot water for a change. Other than that, he DTD when I asked him to, for the most part anyway.

Any other words of wisdom for those who are TTC?
Don't give up - it will happen when you least expect it.
I agree with the above - don't assume an evap is an evap. I posted a pic of what I thought was an evap, and after testing with a FRER got a BFP.
