well ladies, i've officially seen my very own BFP!

just last night i was telling DH that my body was being cruel because i knew i wasn't pregnant (a few days ago i had a glaring white HPT) and it seemed like my body was dragging out my cycle (yesterday was CD 30 and my longest cycle to date had been 29 days ). i was CONVINCED that AF was on her way... i even wore a pad to bed last night and the night before because i felt that slightly crampy, impending AF feeling, but each morning there was no AF in sight. this morning i decided to POAS thinking that at least then i would give up that teeny tiny shred of hope i was still holding on to and move on. well, i POAS and to my disbelief a pink line came up! and it was an obvious line! no squinting required! i started bawling hysterically and rang my closest friend here (who knows all about our TTC troubles). i was hysterical. seriously. i could hardly breathe! she got me to calm down and try another test. sure enough, it came up with a pink line, too! just to be safe that it wasn't two bad tests i took a 3rd test> i was flabergasted. our next appt at the fertility clinic was scheduled for march 10th... i will be SO happy when i'm able to cancel that appt (i'm not quite ready to do it yet but hopefully i will be feeling confident enough to do it soon!). i now know, for the very first time, that we can make a baby! as we were unexplained infertility i have no reason as to why it took us so long for us to finally get that BFP.

at the moment i'm feeling a mixture of emotions: ecstatic, hopeful, shocked, cautious & a teeny bit scared. i just hope this bean stays put and burrows in for a long ride!

in case any one is interested in what we did this cycle/symptoms here goes:

this cycle i decided to take a little break from JM, only because i was trying to keep my mind a little less occupied with TTC. do i think this was the trick that got us our BFP? nope. but maybe it helped a teeny bit?

i didn't chart, use OPKs, my fertility monitor or any other "technological" help. when i noticed EWCM we BDed for two days in a row. that's it.

i did drink quite a bit of spearmint tea this cycle, though i drank it during other cycles as well (i just like it).

as for symptoms...

i noticed really early on really sore bbs, like the day before AF arrives sore. i had thought it was strange because it was something like a week before AF was supposed to show.

three or four days ago i had a little emotional breakdown. it was about my SIL and her pregnancy (DH came home and showed me her latest ultrasound and he was so excited and happy about it that it felt like an arrow through my heart). i was really weepy about it and i had a really hard time shaking that feeling (even the next day). i HOPE this isn't indicative of how i'll be for the next nine months!

a few days ago i noticed a few little zits in odd places (like my chest and shoulder). i hardly ever get those so it was a bit odd.

for the last two or three nights i haven't been digesting my dinner very well (which is odd since usually i could digest even a brick! ).

of course, once i got my stark white BFN i was sure that i had "imagined" all of those symptoms... the very last think i expected today was a BFP!

i want to say thank you to all of the wonderful ladies on this board who have been so supportive and helpful. i don't know what i would have done without you. i hope that you won't mind if i stick around and post from time to time.

I am so so so sooooooo happy for you Amy! If there is anyone on this board that deserves to see those two pink lines... it's you. (Okay I'm sure there are many others, but of all the ones I've seen on here.. I'd say you're it!)
I'll be honest- I rarely come on JM anymore because it can be such a downer and sometimes it brings my hopes down... but this is wonderful news and definitely makes me feel more hopefully!
Congrats to you and your DH-- H&H9M!!

awwww thanks samantha. and courtney!!! i've missed you! i know, this TTC is just SO hard. these past six months or so have been especially hard on me since just about everyone i know (including DH's sister) is pregnant. it was really, really hard for me to accept SIL's pregnancy, especially because i was faced with it every.single.day by the ILs and DH's family. my friend likened it to having salt rubbed in my wounds on daily basis. i thought that analogy couldn't have been more perfect. only now that we have our own BFP do i think that i can shrug it off. sending you the biggest hug you can imagine and hope that you get that BFP soon... you deserve it so much!
