Trying to Get Pregnant

I love papa burgers. (BFP!)

This was cycle 10, month 11 for us (4th cycle TTCAL). August would have made a full year of trying. This cycle I decided to put down the bbt after I got crosshairs. I found I over analyzed every temp in the 2ww and it made me crazy, and I wanted a break from that. I took my temp on 9 DPO and my temp hadn't seemed to go up at all, so I figured AF would be coming soon. Around 9-11 DPO I started having light cramps which was different for me as cramps usually only start the day AF does. So on 11 DPO I tested and got a faint second line after a minute and a half. I have been testing every day and the lines are getting darker. I am still pretty nervous because our only other pregnancy resulted in a loss, so hopefully this baby sticks.

What we did: I temped, and once I got a +OPK we had sex ED. I used pineapple core on 1-4 DPO. DH insists this cycle worked because he chose what time of day we HIO (sure, guy).

Timing: O-2, O-1, O

Symptoms: nothing really, just some light cramping and my boobs hurt a little bit.

How I told DH: I tested right after he left for work. He had told me once before he only wanted to be told if I was KU in person, so I grappled all day with how I was going to tell him when I got home that night. I was pretty much going to shove the picture I took of the stick in his face, but then when I texted to ask him what he wanted at A&W for supper on my way home, he said "surprise me". I got him a Papa burger and gave it to him and said "ok, here's your burger. Can you see on the receipt which one it is?" And he said "oh, a papa burger, thanks babe!" And sat down to eat it. I said "yeah, I figure you might as well get used to the role now!" And he said, "are you pregnant?" When I said yes, his eyes filled with tears and he hugged and kissed me. He was so excited and said "this is going to be the best burger ever!"  :)

Mushy stuff: I cannot tell you how much I am going to miss this board. I really do feel like I know some of you and I am going to miss the sense of humour here.  I know everyone always says they're rooting for you all, and I really do mean it when I say I hope you all get BFPs soon. I will be dirty lurking this board every day.
