Excited and optimistic... BFP — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Excited and optimistic... BFP

After my previous miscarriages, I was afraid I'd be too nervous to enjoy a BFP, but I was totally wrong. I am so happy, and I'm making a conscientious decision to be optimistic about this pregnancy.

Cycle/Month - 8 cycles/13 months (including 2 m/c during that time period)

CD/DPO - CD 37/13 DPO

EDD - July 15, 2015

What we did - sex on O, O-1, O-2, O-3, and O-4

Symptoms - just some normal PMS cramps

How I told H - I was planning on testing this morning because H works from home on Tuesdays. Yesterday I had a good feeling about this cycle because my luteal phase is normally 12 days, and yesterday my temp was still high at 13 DPO. I was too excited to wait, so I took a test while H was getting our son ready for bed. I went in and told him I couldn't wait until morning and showed him the test. He grinned, and my 2 year old (who says everything is his) pointed to the pee stick and said it was his. I asked what it was, and he said it was his thermometer (we bed share so he sees me take my temp with the BBT every morning, and that's what he thought I was holding). I said that's not what it was, and I added that I'm not using the thermometer anymore!

Mushy stuff - You're a wonderful group of smart women who have provided me with lots of great perspective, support when I've needed it, and distractions when I've needed them. I am so grateful for that. I wish you all the absolute best!
