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
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.
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
Timing: O-2, O-1, O
Symptoms: nothing really, just some light cramping and my boobs hurt a little bit.
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!" :)
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.
