Well it's not fading any more! I got a very clear second line on a FRER this morning and dipped a digi and got a 'Pregnant'! I'm still totally in shock because I spent all day yesterday trying not to get excited.
This is month/cycle 10 for us, so I wanted to post this to prove that it does happen between those 9-12 months.
Timing: O-3, O-2, O-1, O
What we did: temping, OPK's, CBEFM, B6 and enough sex to make me feel like my vag walls were black and blue.
How I told DH: I crawled back in bed after peeing on the sticks and whispered, "Are you awake?" He mumbled something and I said, "...because I'm pregnant." His eyes flew open and he said, "For Real?!". It's funny because those were his exact words when I told him about DD.
Mushy Gooshy Stuff: I think very few women know the true process of TTC like the ladies of this board. I really mean that, and I'm really grateful for it. There are so many intelligent, articulate and hilarious ladies here - when you have all of those qualities, the snark comes along too, and I'm grateful for that as well. The humor really helped get through some of the days that were harder. I'm anxiously awaiting to read about all of your BFPs! Thanks!
