Okay so here's my attempt at an online TTC journal. Here's some info about me. I am 23 years old, married for 1 1/2 months to Colin 24. I am currently in school working on my EC-4th grade degree to be a teacher!!! I love children and have always known that more than anything in the world I want to be a mommy!!!
Colin and I were going to wait about 2 years to have children, but the baby bug has bit us badly and we decided to make the bigtime decision to go off of BC. I read the stats and was pretty convinced that we wouldn't get pregnant right away and I was perfectly content with that. Time to do the things I want to do. Time to lose weight, time to save some money, time to switch jobs, time to prepare!! (I am a big time preparer!!)
So here's my first cycle off of BC and my "symptoms" are insane. I am thouroughly convinced I am pregnant even with 5 BFN's in the past 5 days :evil: . I am on DPO 12 right now and I feel, well...pregnant. I know that many will say that it's side effects of coming off of birth control, but I haven't read about any side effects like these. I had to put ice packs on my breasts they hurt so badly today and I NEVER have breast tenderness even before my period. So right now I am completly at a loss. A loss for sanity, a loss for reason, a loss for why my body is behaving the way it is right now if all the HPT tests are true. I am going to post my giant list of symptoms here in the next post I make. I started keeping track of them when I first started cramping on DPO 3. I thought it would be a good way to be able to gauge how I would feel b/t ovulation and my period. So i didn't "make up" symptoms....UM, I guess that didn't work.
I know that so many of these symptoms are up to interpretation (except for the erect nipples, noone can take that away from me!!! I KNOW that that is wierd!!! LOL).
So here's my TTC journey. I pray it is short and sweet. But if it is not, than I will take this opportunity to learn about my body and reflect on life. I know that God has a plan for me and He will give us a child when it's the right time. I have Faith that He truly knows what is best and I put my life in His hands
Okay next post will be my symptoms. Now don't laugh, I am very thorough, LOL.
