I woke up on Thursday - 10dpo and my temp was still up (which is really unusual for me), so on a whim I decided to test with a internet cheapie. I saw a faint line right away. I started crying when I first saw the second line, woke up Mike and said, "you don't have to get your sperm tested!" He was confused, and then realized what I meant. Definitely not the most romantic or creative way to tell him, it was just the first thing that popped into my head.
I followed it up with a FRER that evening, again, a faint line. Another cheapie yesterday, darker line. I went to the doctor after work and peed again. They called a couple hours later, pregnant! They set up an appointment for me with the OB Coordinator on May 25th. The OB Coordinator will get all of my appointments set up. I'll be almost 8 weeks then...I'm super excited!
I saved the digital for today, 12dpo. "Pregnant" came up in less than a minute. I am still in complete shock. Mike is over the moon.
I am due January 10th. I'm already feeling it, I've been exhausted the last couple days, I feel like a gas factory, and I've had all sorts of twinges, pressure, etc. It just feels 'full' down there. I don't think there's a better way to describe how it feels.
On Monday (at 4 weeks) I'm going to start recording everything on here, but in the mean time I figured I'd take a baseline picture to compare my future belly against. Here it is:
3 weeks, 4 days (day after first BFP)
Thank you for your support ladies! Having this blog (and having you read it, of course) has been so therapeutic for me, and I hope you'll continue to share this journey with me.
I still can't believe we conceived the day after our anniversary...it's likely that sex on the day of our anniversary did the trick!
