We'd been trying about 15 months with no success. I've always had lots of LP spotting and I was sure something was wrong and that i'd have trouble ttc. Anyway, I'd been seeing a gyno about it for the last 12 months and I was due to see her a fortnight later to have an ectropian cautarised which would have meant no ttc for 2-3months. I was pretty down about the whole thing and due AF when my LP spotting started to get lighter. I had millions of IC (I was a poas addict) so I thought I'd check one last time......low andbehold a faint line started to appear!!! Now I had spend many occassions trying to squint and tilt tests so that I'd see faint lines so I didn't quite believe it but I thought 'well I'll check with my digi seeing as I'm not gonna have a chance to use it in the next few months' (us LTTCers always have a large range of pregnancy tests at hand). It can up as pregnant 1-2 weeks!!!! I was so shocked and excited!!! I sort of ran around the bathroom and kept squeeking and staring at it in disbelief.
MY OH was at the pub so I got out a card with lots of cute little ducks on the front and wrote a little message inside ' Dear Daddy, you are invited to my 'birth' day on the 18th June and XXX hospital. Can't wait to meet you. lots of love, your little bean'
Anyway, when my OH came home (he was later than normal so I was going stir crazy!) I was trying to play it cool and said a card had come through the letterbox for him earlier this evening. He was half watching TV half opening it and then he started reading it and looked really confused. He looked at me with a veyr confused look on his face and I pulled out the pregancy test and screamed 'IM PREGNANT!!!!!!!'
I think he went into shock as he couldn't speak for about 5 minutes......
I thought it would be a nice way to find out but maybe it was a little cruel!!!!
OH text me in Feb 11 and asked me if we could start trying for a baby. We decided there was never going to be a right time so I got the implant out. My periods had been quite regualr prior to the implant but seemed to be all over the place. We started TTC straight away though.
In July we thought I was so tested but was negative. OH was devastated that we weren't. We decide to just see what happened. End of August we went on holiday to Scotland and had a really nice relaxed time away.
Period never arrived even after 40 days - longest cycle I had had and so OH pestered me to test. I said I would wait another week to test. He had a garden job to do on the Saturday and not long after he left I thought I would do a test. Got a massive shock when it was postive.
I sent him a text asking if he was alone still as he was going to get his dad to help him. He immediately rang me and asked what was up. I was lost for words and just said your going to be a dad. He didn't know whether to laugh or cry. He spent all day itching to tell someone. That night we were out for his BIL bday but he took me for a meal before that. His BIL kept asking when we were going to have kids etc and we just kept smiling at each other.
Next day we told our immediate families we were expecting
Me and OH had been together coming up 13 years, i was pretty young when we got together and having children earlier never really appealed to me much. Fast forward 12 years and i started desperately yearning to be pregnant and have a baby. We agreed to start trying around May last year and as i had been on the pill for so many years it had completely messed my cycles up. I started tracking my cycles which were never 28 days long, they varied between 21 and 29 days, mainly around 25 days long. I also found out i ovulated early in my cycle on cd10 every single month. Anyways due to stress/work and whatever else we only had sex once in July on the day i got a positive opk and felt for sure i was out for that month. As we'd dtd to cover previous positive opk days and i hadnt fallen pregnant then so why would this be any different. Fast forward 10 days later and for some reason something in my head said to take a pregnancy test (was a superdrug one i think). So i take it and at the same time i'm telling myself theres no point really as i wont be pregnant. Anyways i go over and look at it and there is a faint pink line there. I think omg could this be it? I shout OH and say i know i say this every month lol but i really see a faint line on this, do you see it? OH barely looks at it thinking im just imagining it as usual. I get impatiant with him and say look look there is a faint line and then try to justify it by saying well i am only 10dpo so its not gonna be a bfp. OH says look go and buy some CB digis tomorrow and see what they say. So i agree to the longest wait ever till the next day. I get home and pee on a CB digi and wait staring at the egg timer saying i bet i'm not pregnant over and over. Then it flashed up 'pregnant' and i just went omg omg omg over and over again. Then it flashed up 1-2 weeks and i almost started hyperventalating. Then i started crying and walking round my bathroom saying out loud i'm pregnant, i'm pregnant like some kind of nutter. lol
I somehow waited for OH to come home and showed him the test when he came in. He looked at me and smiled and we both cried and cuddled each other. We were both so excited and happy. I was walking around with this massive smile on my face and me and OH kept giggling to each other everytime we looked at each other.
Over the moon!! I suspected I couldve been. My temps were high they just kept going up. Never down. BUT it was my first month temping so I wasnt sure what mine were supposed to look like. I took a test b4 SIL wedding cause i didnt want to drink if pregnant. it was negative. I told OH about my suspicions and he pretty much said he doesnt believe it (the temps meaning anything) so i did drink that night. That was saturday. On monday I dipped a 10 MIU in my pee and it was a negative but I thought what the hell and dipped a FRER in the same pee and there it was.
scared or excited?
Both. I wanted it so badly and I was scared that the test was wrong.
did you cry?
how did you break the news to DH/OH/FOB?
I called him. and he just said "ok" he was at work near people and OH is a very private person. then he asked if he could call me back. I wanted to kill him. lol. But one thing I loved was he never asked me how I knew or if I took a test. he knew when i said it, it was the real deal.
how did he react?
Not much right away. But when he got home lots of huge and kisses. i may have shed a few tears out of excitement.
Aw can I play?
It's been almost 2 years since my BFP.
But I am getting broody again...still got 2 yrs to wait until we TTC for #2
I was 10 dpo (BARELY) because it was 1 AM and thunderstorms outside.
I said I'd start testing at 10 dpo after 6 months of trying i was getting a little neurotic.
I tested and then sat in the room and tried to focus on something else for 5 minutes.
I went in and there was the faintest ever!
Of course, I was happy but I was also shaking and scared.
Got a blood test about 4 days later and didn't tell my husband until I was 5 weeks because I wanted to "make sure" I was pregnant.
I told him at dinner at our favorite restaurant.
I can't wait to do it again
It's crazy my big toddler was once a little speck in my stomach.
The cycle prior had ended in a chemical pregnancy so I wasn't entirely sure when my period would be arriving or if I'd even ovulated after the chemical. I used a website to figure out an estimate of when my period should have arrived and realized I was a week late. My boobs were ridiculously sore so I figured I'd test just because.
I sat there expecting it to be negative like the cycle before but to my surprise it came up positive. So I took a first response digital and it said "pregnant" almost immediately. I ran to the bedroom and jumped on the bed, waking OH up and told him I took a test and it was positive. I was ridiculously excited seeing as the month prior went rather terribly.
I was still breast feeding when we ttc #2. We were planning a crOSS country move so there was a window for getting pregnant where I would be back to work long enough to get maternity leave and the baby would not be too small to travel. I also didn't want to be pregnant for the trip. We were getting really stressed because we only had 3 months left to try and that was pushing it. I had been doing temps and opk for a few months. I had a very short Lp, 3 days and then 4 then 5 the next month. We were so stressed that I told my husband we wouldn't try for a cycle to lower the stress. I still did opk and temps just to track everything so I could see if my cycle was improving. I decided to try b50 vitamins because I heard they can help lengthen lp. Turned out that we dtd twice the day before ovulation and we weren't doing it much because my i laws were staying with us so that's a bit of a fluke. I had a bunch of ic pregnancy tests that look just like my ic opks except they're blue instead of green. I waited for period to come and had a temp dip right when I expected my period to come with the short lp, but no bleeding. I took a test at 7dpo and after staring at it for ages, imagined that I saw a line, but I'd thought that before. Threw it away. Tested again the next morning and there was a very faint but visible line. I was so happy I could hardly breathe. I ran to the kitchen to show my husband and he just said that's nice and didn't seem to care. I went away for a while, puzzled and sad that he didn't seem happy about it. After a few minute I went back and said you don't seem very happy about the test, why? He said that he was tired and doesn't the line mean we have to have sex again now? He thought it was an opk. I said no, this is a pregnancy test. Now we don't have to have sex unless we feel like it. He was like, Oohh!! And then got super excited.
We had been trying for about 4 months. Id started getting fat, eating anything I could get my hands on lol, moody but didnt think anything of it. It was my oh who said I should do a pregnancy test. So I did and it was positive. I phoned him up at work- he works away all week and told him. From then I was terrified!! Kept thinking what the hell have I done, why did I want to get pregnant, my son is my baby how can I love anyone else as much!! So strange considering I planned to get pregnant!!! Its not fair what hormones do to you Im ok about i all now though
I found out I was pregnant on 1/09/11. I wasn't planning to get pregnant. I has forgotten to take the pill a few times. I didn't have many symptoms. I did a test then when to the doctors who confirmed I was pregnant. I was terrified and didn't know what to do. I told my oh when he got home from work and we discussed it at lenth and decided to go ahead with the pregnancy as we have our own house and we could cope financially ( might be a bit tight) we have also been together for seven years and I'm 27 and he's 32 so I felt we were probably at the right age.
We gave up trying. We had two losses in 6 months of each other, and then nothing for 18 months. My cycles were always off, and after seeing the DR and trying Clomid, still nothing. It was the farthest thing from our minds. October 5th, DH rushed me to the ER because I was having chest pains and was getting dizzy and passing out. They wanted to send me for a CT of my chest, and asked if I was possibly pregnant. I responded no. I didn't think that I could even get pregnant, so I didn't think of saying yes. DH had a smirk on his face (he still laughs because he secretly suspected it for two weeks prior) and said that we weren't exactly preventing either. They did a urine test. A tech came in to get me to wheel me to CT and one of the nurses came sprinting towards my room. DH looked at me and said "you're pregnant." I said no way! The nurse ran in and pulled the tech out.. DH was sitting with the biggest smile on his face. About 2 minutes later the ER doc came in and said well, I know you didn't think you could get pregnant, but it appears that you are cooking a little nugget. I looked at him and asked if he was shitting me and said are you serious about thirty times. He came back in with the urine dip just to show me it was positive. Once I saw that, I burst into tears. I was so happy but so scared because of the losses and the fact that at the moment I was not feeling so hot. The still urged me to have the CT because I have a clotting disorder (turned out I had pluerisy). When I got back from CT, DH had already called his ENTIRE family and told them the news. We are over the moon excited!
