I'm 11 dpo today and I really feel my BFP is going to come along tomorrow. I tested today and bfn am and pm, but then I checked the pm stick a couple of hours later and the FAINTEST of faint lines was there (like not an evap line, a pink line but one that hurts your eyes you have to squint so much to see it). I have had my share of evap lines so know what im looking for. this is the same thickness and everything.
So I am breastfeeding my 14 month old and haven't seen AF for a couple of years and this is the first eggy that I've been waiting for, and my body has been screaming pregnancy symptoms at me since 1 dpo: severe heartburn, taste in mouth, sore boobs, full boobs even after feeding alot, tugging sensations, cramping, I even felt my ovulation happen for the first time ever.
I am just praying that my luteal phase is long enough to maintain a pregnancy as I know so many people who havent had long enough luteal phases for the first few cycles while breastfeeding. I understand a luteal phase needs to be at least 12 days to maintain a pregnancy so just 1 more day without my first postpartum AF and I'm in with a chance!
I know I shouldn't be so excited but I can't help it and am keeping it all secret from dh to save as an Easter surprise. (he will be )
I took vitamin B complex for a month and ONE vitex capsule plus one week of temporary nightweaning to get my ovulation going if any other non-cycling, ttc breastfeeders are interested (I searched all over the internet for info on getting cycles going).
Just had to say all that to stop my mind exploding with nervous excitement.
Did you get a BFP? I was so excited to find your thread. I'm in the same boat - breastfeeding, ttc, playing the waiting game... Don't want to wean dd so I'm hoping it'll work one of these cycles. Like you I was over the moon when the ovulation pains came back (never thought I'd ever say this)
