It's so weird to actually say this, but I got a positive pregnancy test today after 15 months of TTC. It was my third clomid cycle.
As for what I did differently, there was nothing. I drank green tea and used pre-seed, like several cycles before. I took Mucinex once or twice. We BD'd every-other day from CD 14 to CD 18 (I O'd CD 19).
I was so sure that I wasn't pregnant this cycle. I had no symptoms at all. Plus, I had some bright red spotting and cramps on 12 DPO and greyish-brown CM since then so I figured it was pre-menstrual spotting. The only PMS symptom I didn't have was acne. I had had some bloating and cramping during the first week of the 2WW but it went away around 7 DPO. Our intercourse timing was OK, but not great, and I hadn't had much CM, fertile or otherwise, around the time of ovulation.
This cycle wasn't different enough from all the other ones to think I would be pregnant this time. I know, though, that fertility and conception is in God's hands, not mine. Nothing I can do will make me pregnant as the last year+ has shown. All I can do is try to get my body healthy, BD, and pray.
Mostly, though, my gut feeling is that I wasn't pregnant. I was preparing myself to move on and day-dreaming about how we were going to have fun as a childless couple this year. My best friend got pregnant this cycle and I was both happy for her and sad for me. Now we get to go through this together like we wanted. How great God is!!! This would have been bittersweet for both of us if only one of us got pregnant. We were prepared for it but this is so exciting.
I'm shaking so bad! It, of course, doesn't seem real. I almost threw the test away since it didn't show positive right away and I just knew it was negative anyway. I'm glad I didn't! Of course, based on all the months before, I would have snuck a peek at it later anyway. Heck, I probably still will just to make sure it's still there
How did I tell my husband? I woke him up early and told him I urgently needed to show him something in the bathroom. I was shaking so bad and I must have looked scared. He thought it was a plumbing problem, LOL! I wanted to make sure I wasn't imagining the line. I told him I wanted him to give me a present to celebrate and he said of course he would He's such a sweetie. He's going to be a great dad!
