I'm a little late on posting, I actually got my BFP on Sunday! Its been a bit of a whirlwind, but I thought I'd savour this moment that I finally get to post here!!
I tested on 11dpo with FMU and got the biggest you've ever seen, so I just figured I was out, I had no real symptoms and just plain didn't feel like it was going to happen quickly for us.
DH had a work trip for a week and he was leaving Sunday (13dpo) He suggested I test before he left and i thought sure why not, it'll only confirm what I know already.
So not even FMU, didn't even need to pee really, went to the bathroom and skipped straight back to him with it. I even teased him and didn't show the result right away. He was like so so SO!! what is it? and I handed it to him and said sorry
I was just about to throw it in the bin when I thought i'd have another look in better light, then I realized I could see a line coming up!! I thought I was going crazy so I called back DH to have a look! I started getting cold sweats, was just in shock and thought that can't be real!? (moral of the story if the test says wait 3 mins before reading...wait at least 3 bloody mins!!)
The line is faint, but pink and def there. I took another test 2 days later with FMU and it was a lot darker, but still took at least 5 minutes to get clear enough that could could see it without screwing up your face
So the only true symptoms I would say I had was:
1) Cramping after ovulation (this isn't abnormal for me)
2) nothing!!!! totally normal, couldn't even pretend!
3) I did notice from 10dpo onwards that I was much much more tired than normal in the afternoons, not just sleepy but bordering on narcolepsy!
4) Since AF was due I've had a lot of AF-like cramping (dpo14 onwards)
5) I also noticed that CM disappeared pretty much, I normally get an increase in lotionly type stuff as AF gets closer. Which is weird because I think a lot of people say CM increases when preggo too, so not sure if its a symptom, but if its happening to you don't panic, it ain't over yet!
Pic attached (hopefully) is the faint line I got at 13 dpo
Thanks for reading sending sticky glue for those with beans and lots of babydust for those still in the queue
