Heart Trina's Super Sparkly Pregnancy!

I want to keep track of my milestones, cravings, emotions, etc in one place, so it's journal time!!!

------------------------------------------------------

After 14.5 months of trying, and multiple super long cycles, I finally had a picture perfect cycle! CD1 was August 14th, 2013. Super sparkly Femara led to ovulation on CD19 (earliest in years) September 1st, BD timing was perfect, started secretly testing at 7dpo September 8th, because I was too ashamed to admit that I was obsessing () but I felt good about my cycle so I went for it! You can see my chart here, FF marked it Triphasic! YAY! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ChartGallery/160529.html

Got a weird shadow at 7dpo, a test that played tricks on me at 8dpo, the lightest line ever at 9dpo that I could only see in certain light... After seeing so many faulty Wondfos I considered those negatives or undecideds. I had three false positives the cycle before, and that cycle ended up being anovulatory and lasted 66 days, so I knew better than to trust ANY kind of faint, shadowy, or less than obvious line.

Then at 10dpo, September 11th, this happened (my cycle thread, with my 10dpo tests at the top):

I was on a serious adrenaline rush for the first two weeks after we got our obvious undeniable BFP. I couldn't believe it finally happened! I was JUST about to give up hope when my awesome friend Maddy pep talked me into trying again and I am so beyond grateful she did. I will say, TTC is a special kind of torture. Even after losing my parents, I have to say TTC is the hardest thing I have ever been through, both times I endured it. I have never felt more broken and hopeless in my life. Getting a BFP was like the weight of a million bricks lifted off of me, like watching an actual dream come true before my eyes. The only downside was feeling guilty leaving behind the other women in LTTTC that haven't gotten theirs yet.

I kept testing because I am addicted to seeing the lines pop up. They were getting so dark so fast, I couldn't stop myself from peeing on more and more tests! You can see testing threads here:

http://www.themommyplaybook.com/foru...d.php?t=427895
http://www.themommyplaybook.com/foru...d.php?t=429710

So far symptoms include:
3 weeks pregnant - slight cramping
4 weeks pregnant - peeing a lot, cramping subsided but had a little stretching and RLP type pains, wanted to eat the whole world.
5 weeks pregnant - fatigue setting in, cravings starting, mood swings starting, peeing a lot is gone and not so hungry all the time anymore.

Overall this pregnancy hasn't been very different from my last two, which were both obviously girls, but with both of my girls I felt girl. All girl stuff was adorable to me, I loved girl names, I pictured myself with a daughter, I loved it when someone said they thought it was a girl and got annoyed when they said boy... it was all girl all the time. This time it's completely opposite. Boy clothes are adorable, I am drawn to boy names, I could see myself with a little boy, and while I don't mind if anyone else says girl or boy, I do want to experience a son and I never cared about that before. I don't know if it's intuition or just a desire to have a boy, but I feel boy more this time. I can honestly say I would be ecstatic either way, though. My last two pregnancies I definitely would have been happier with a girl, but this time either way I am over the moon!

My due date is May 25, 2014 and we are team green, so we will find out in about 7.5 months!

----------------------------------------------------------

That's all for now, I will update more as I go!

Oh I love this thread!! I cant wait to stalk every post and hear every update!!

I love that you are team green!!!! I realllllllllllllly want to attempt it when we get a bfp! That would be the best surprise you could ever get! I remember when my sister was pregnant with my nephew she said that she could feel it was a boy. She liked different foods, she liked listening to aggressive music, watching violent action movies, etc. With her daughter she wanted every peaceful and happy lol. So you never know, it could be a boy! I cant wait for 7.5 months to get here!!!

I miss you so much in LTTTC, but I am so incredibly happy that you are now pregnant and moved on from TTC. You are such a great mama, and you make the happiest babies! The universe surely smiles down on you my friend!
