Oh wow it feels weird to type 'pregnancy'! Well, hello my name is Candace (25) and DH is David (24) and we have been married for just over 3 years (August 21st) and together for almost 5 years. We always wanted kids, but when my SIL got pregnant last March, that just set the baby fever into out of control mode! With time, it subsided, but I was still antsy.
I was on bcp for 5 years, almost, got off in June 2009. We tried for 2 cycles and DH knocked me up! I always thought his super-sperm theory (the men in his family are known to get their wives pregnant easily) was a bunch of crap, but I guess he was right!
I got my BFP officiall yesterday on CD33, 11DPO. I was kind of late, last cycle I only had a 9 day LP. I took some B6 to help extend it, as well as prenatals and folic acid (been on those for several months already).
Here were my symptoms....if you even want to call them that:
1 DPO: nothing
2 DPO: nothing
3 DPO:nothing
4 DPO: bbs felt weird when I ran, more sensative; pretty uncomfortable sharp pain shooting up my left side, from mid-stomach to my rib cage (my Oing side I *think* was my left side). There were two moments of them, but only lasted a few seconds; moody/mood swings. SUPER gassy!
5 DPO: woke up earlier than my alarm clock by 20 minutes and couldnt really fall back asleep (very odd for me);twinges on my left ovary area; burning/sharp pain on the left 'side' of my who-ha; moody; VERY gassy; tired; heartburn (which I rarely get!); hot flash mid-afternoon
6 DPO: Had painful gas cramps in the middle of the night; frequent urination; woke up earlier than my alarm clock by 20 minutes again and couldnt really fall back asleep (very odd for me); mid-backache; weird twinges in my mid-left stomach area; VERY bloated after dinner (like, I looked preggo! ); EWCM?
7 DPO: I slept like crap! I went to bed freezing (abnormally cold) and then woke up at 2:30 hotter than hades and thirsty (probably from the dinner), tossed and turned for a bit (maybe 15 minutes), then woke up at 4:40 but went right to sleep. I have some creamy CM and I keep leaking something on my panties, its just clear; random heartburn in the morning; fatigue; gassy; weird stomach pain
8DPO: fatigue; creamy CM; slight cramping/twinges around left ovary area
9DPO: creamy, yellowish CM; lots of creamy CM and wetness during the evening; AF cramps on both sides that travel to my back
10DPO: Faint BFP line on $tree test, but probably an evap; lots of AF like crampiness, mainly on my left side (O side); had BFP dreams; lots of creamy CM and I feel very moist; fatigue
11DPO: BFP confirmed with a digi! My back is achy; fatigue; other than that I feel normal; crampiness
12DPO: first food adversions...generally to everything, nothing sounds good (it could be from excitement and nervousness); crampiness off and on; fatigue; sleeplessness; achy back
13DPO: Pretty much the same as above

Finding out I was preggo was bittersweet, DH lost his job again Friday. But I guess God had different plans. He will provide for us and help us through our journey. This is such a blessing and we are so excited!!! DH just found out, yesterday, that he was approved unemployment, so that's a HUGE blessing!!!
Our families are excited. I didn't tell them in a special way like I wanted, due to the circumstances of DH losing his job (which they knew). I just needed to call them so they could tell me it was going to be OK...which I was caught slightly off guard, and they did!!
My first appointment is October 15th for an ultrasound and midwife appointment. We are very blessed and excited!!!
DUE MAY 26TH!!!!

BFP at 10DPO, I was 4W5D

I wasn't a real small girl to begin with, a size 10 (170 lbs).













First U/S October 15th

Only 10 more days until my appointment!!! I am sooo excited!! On the flip side (well, depending on how you look at it), my m/s has hit me!!! I am happy because that should mean things are progressing well, but it still sucks! I forced some crackers down and that allowed me to get some of my breakfast in, but not my banana. I couldn't bring myself to eat that or any fruit I brought to work. It was so bad I couldnt even listen to the Kroger commercial on the radio, the sound of food was just disgusting and I thought I was going to throw up. Oh the joys!
I have had twinges in my lower left tummy area (maybe around my ovary) since yesterday during my run. Its just off and on and sometimes goes to the other side, but for some reason it just concerns me. Not spotting or heavy cramping, by any means, but I think I am just being paranoid. Speaking of my run, my bbs hurt pretty bad. I just kept thinking how I should have worn 2 sports bras.
I ate pretty poorly this weekend, just because of my food aversions. I just cant bring myself to eat a lot of the healthy foods I did eat. I think I have gained around 3-5 lbs so far, not good!!! I am hoping since I am running again it will help (I stopped for 2 weeks after my BFP because I was nervous).
Anyway, that's about it. Thanks for reading!!

Hey Candace, welcome to the wonderful world of morning sickness! It's great huh? I have felt the same way about not being able to eat healthy foods. I feel that I have been eating so much carbs and fattening food. I just can't seem to stomach the veggies too well. I can eat fruit every now and then. Well, I hope it doesn't last long for you. I'm in my third week of it now :-( The joys of growing a bean! At least we can chalk it up to that! Hope you have a better rest of the day.

I think it's good that you are having some m/s - it means your bean is growing! I am actually worried about the b-6 hiding the m/s from me because I have heard that b-6 is what women take to combat the nausea! Only because I want to know that my bean is growing you know!

I am still taking my B6 and I am still getting sick. I actually threw up this morning. Granted, I only take 50mg a day, but still....

I am 6 weeks today AND 7 more days until my appt!!!! M/S is kicking my butt in the morning, if not on and off alllllll day. Yesterday, I felt fine after I dry heaved until late last night. Today, that didn't do the trick. It took me dry heaving again, eating some more crackers and juice before it went away. Ohhhh goodness, I am trying to be strong, but this is definitly testing me! I have lots of food aversions now, more aversions than likes...which sucks! LOL I will crave something earlier in the day, around lunchtime, and I cant go eat it because I dont want to go out for lunch and then by the time its dinner, I dont want it anymore. Annoying! I seem to have lost some weight, not sure how, but I was up about 5 and now I think I am down a pound or so. Which, this early in the game, is a good thing.
I ran 2 miles the other day and I plan to run again today. I did some strength training and toning last night and will walk at lunch today. I am trying to stay as active as possible for as long as possible. I enjoy working out and running, so I want to keep at it until I cant.
I have a furlough day tomorrow, so I am off!!! YAH!!! Plan to have a nice, long weekend with DH. I hope you all have a great day and thanks for reading!!

P.S. I will post a new pic this evening.

Kathryn-men are so silly with their egos sometimes! And Yah for having the same anniversary date!!!!

Well, I am 7 weeks today and I have my u/s and appt....I am so nervous and excited all at the same time. I really wish I would have made an early appt, because waiting all day is going to drive me bonkers! I will update later this evening or tomorrow with details.
DH and I went to eat Golden Corral last night because I could actual handle the thought of food. I didnt go over board at all. Basically, I would say I ate no more than I usually do, maybe even less. The popcorn shrimp did get the best of me a little, but that's OK. I feel HUGE today, I dont know why....probably retaining water (as I always do) from eating out. My m/s is getting better, as in I am learning how to control it. So YAH for that!! I couldnt take another day like Monday!!! No way!
I am still exercising, as I did 30 minutes of strength training last night and I will walk at lunch today and maybe get some more weights in later. I would run, but its rainy.
Ok, that's about it. I will update later.

I had my u/s and appt today and it couldnt have gone better. I am measuring 7W5D but they are keeping my dd based on my last AF, not my O. My new DD is May 26th and my birthday is May 23rd, so that is our estimation! She is 13 mm and the heartbeat was 155. (My DH thinks he is a boy and 'yelling' at me as I am writing SHE ) Everything looked fine and normal. They did a pap smear and I did have slight bleeding but the midwife assured us it was OK and I may have some spotting. I am just glad she warned me or else I would have freaked out!!! We didnt get to hear the heartbeat and I totally forgot to ask, I was just mesmirized and it felt like an out of body experience, so I wasnt even thinking about all that! Anyway, that's it...so YAH for May DDC!!! I will probably still stay on here because I am on here more anyway.

Woo hoo!! I'm so happy that everything is well with your bean! I agree that I would have freaked out if I were spotting and they hadn't said anything before hand about it. And yay for sharing u/s pictures!!! (Tell DH that is DEFINITELY a girl bean in there!)
