could i be pregnant??

here's a little background on me. after over 2 years of TTC, we finally conceived DS1 with clomid. we've been ttc #2 for over a year now. i did 3 months of clomid jan-march, but no bfp, so we decided to "take a break." i wasn't counting cycle days or anything. a couple weeks ago (15-20 days ago, i really don't remember) i noticed i had what looked like a lot of fertile CM, which NEVER happens for me. i supposedly don't ovulate on my own, and clomid dries me out completely (we use preseed during clomid cycles). DH and i DTD that night, not because i thought i might be fertile, but just because he returned from being out of town for a week. and i haven't given it another thought. we've been crazy with moving into a new house. i've been doing everything you shouldn't do when ttc or possibly pregnant...drinking wine, lifting lots of heavy boxes and furniture, being around paint fumes, new carpet fumes, refinished hardwood floor fumes, not taking any folic acid (but i do eat a lot of spinach salad...hope that counts!), etc. etc. today a wave a nausea hit me, and for some reason, that made me think about that possible ovulation and the fact that it's been over 30 days since my last period. no preg. tests in the house, so i used a FR ovulation test, and it was clearly positive (test line way darker than reference line). does that mean i might be pregnant? i've heard that you can use ovulation tests as preg. tests, but i've never done it, and i'm just really having a hard time believing we might have conceived naturally after years and years of ttc. any information on this would be SO helpful! do i need to go buy preg. tests tomorrow???

if i am preggo, my due date would be jan. 23rd or somewhere around there...i'm not even sure when my last period was, but i know it was over before easter.

Amanda, that's how my bfp came about too. Years of ttc, no luck, fertility treatments and the surprise - pg on my own when least expecting it. I used opks as pg tests too and yep, that's how mine were. Definitely positive when I wasn't even ovulating.

Sounds really good for you....kup and go buy a hpt!

Ummm, yes, you could be preggo. Go get a test, girl!!!!!

My OPKs went positive on 12dpo, a day after my BFP! They are now so dark, they are almost black.

Get a test!!!! And please share pics!! Can't wait for your update!

Edit to correct CD12 to 12dpo, der! Ahhh, pregnancy brain!

oh my. i am dying to pee on a preg. test now, but DH is working til midnight, so i can't leave the house! (waking up DS for a late-night trip to the drugstore seems wrong...haha.) i don't want to tell DH about the possibility, so i'll just have to sneak out sometime tomorrow and pick some up. i will definitely let you all know the outcome tomorrow!!

sorry to bring bad news, ladies, but the hpt was BFN. Sad for several practical reasons, this would have been bad timing for us, but with all the ttc struggles we've had, i would be excited about a pregnancy at any time! and it's always a bummer to get my hopes up and then see a BFN. we'll try 3 more months of clomid again starting in august, and then if that doesn't work, we'll probably just choose to be content with one child.

i peed on another opk today, too, thinking maybe i was just hallucinating last night. but i got a positive result again, so i guess i have a pretty decent level of LH in my system right now for some reason? but no HCG? from what i've read opk's pick up LH and HCG, but hpt's only pick up HCG. anyway, my body is wacky hormonally most of the time, which is why we have fertility issues, so who knows. but i guess i won't be joining you ladies here on the jan. '12 board. i wish you all the best with your pregnancies!!!
