The 2ww are over. I waited to test till Friday morning.
And I waited till today to tell you, b/c I was really busy.
are you reading?
I took only one test.
I can't believe it myself. We have tried for a year and a 5 months. And I had so many BFNs. I haven't told anybody. Not even DH. I want to tell DH on Valentines Day if I can hold out that long. He keeps looking at me funny but hasn't said anything.
My little secret.
Ok ladies, now that I got the ball rolling, let's get you all on board with those BFPs. Sending you lots of POSITIVE vibes. GL.
I was thinking of wrapping the test up and giving it to DH as the Valentines present and maybe making a card with something that rhymes with expecting #2. But Valentines Day is another 10 days away. I don't know if I can hold out that long.
I used to read the threads with great details on how somebody got pregnant and would always be so grateful for a lot of detail. Not sure If you want to know but I thought I share about this cycle what I did different:
-Definitely the lemon juice and the pineapple core was different. I had never done that before.
- I had looked at my charts and thought my Luteal Phase was too short and started taking 25 mg of Vitamin B6 (cut the 100mg pills in quarters with a knife). That was new as well. But it turns out that I didn't ovulate CD17 in my cycle but rather CD11. And my LP was right on the money. The way I found out was due to CM and cervix position which I never check. This cycle I checked just because everybody else seem to be doing it. I was just going by temp change but turns out I have a couple of temp rises. I felt really stupid I have to say when I figured it out.
- I followed my bodys urges. I actually wanted to DTD when it was O time. I usually am too tired, but this cycle I woke DH up and convinced him it was time to get busy. The other times (many cycles) I thought it's too early for O and I don't want to waste energy. But you girls inspired me by saying that you would DTD at least once a day every day. So I tried.
- We never really talked about the time after DTD here on the board. I did the pillow prop under the bum for half an hour. It's a pretty high pillow. No sneezing/coughing/moving around. I timed with my watch.
- We only DTD 2x this cycle just before O. CD8 and CD9 and I O on CD12. But that was the time I felt more like doing it. The other days I wasn't interested. Does that make sense?
Personally, I think that following my bodys urges worked but I also think that the lemon juice and the pineapple core did something.
If I can give any advice don't just look at your temps and listen to your body for those natural urges. I totally ignored them. And I feel pretty stupid for trying to get pregos by following my temp chart alone.
I hope this helps and that you get your BFPs soon.
