Word Of Advice From Someone With A BFP

I want to help you guys so I am writting to let you know about my experience. I just got my BFP on July 21st. I used the OPK, but they didn't work the way I thought they would. I have a 40 day cycle and my period lasts for 7 days. I never get the ewcm. In fact I was taking the OPK kit and the test line never got darker than the control line. DH and I baby danced from 7/4-7/10. Yes every day. I had some lotion like cm (which I attributed to my ovulation) and we did it on those days. Bang- a BFP. My advice is baby dance as much as possible the week of ovualation because everyone's different. I got a BFP when the OPK didn't surge darker than the control line (it was dark, but not as dark as the control line) and I didn't get the ewcm. Ladies don't read into the ewcm and the OPK as much and just Do it (like Nike says). I hope I was of some help. Much luck and baby dust to all of you. I love coming on this board to read the BFP's. It makes me so happy to see something worked for someone.

First of all congrates! I am still in waiting to see if I am expecting my first... I had my af on July 13-14 and we finally decided to have a baby and for the first time July 25 he didn't pull out... we have been having s_x like crazy up until yesterday... I really hope that I get as lucky as you... even though this is our first month....

Sos- How long are your cycles?

 

SOS - August 1

are you talking about af cycles...they are usually 4 to 5 days....

I might not understand your question... you have a 40 day cycle.... how do you find out

 

Jada - August 1

Sos- Counting from the first day of your period to your next period. I get mine every 40 days.

My af is always on schedule by a few days like June I had my af on th 12 and this month I had it 13-14... its pretty much always those 3 days... does that help? I would love to know if I am doing it right.... I did a free chart online and I am guessing I did it right and I started to ovulate the 24/25 so.... what do you think... I hope I am not bugging you Jada I just really want a baby

Sos- No your not bugging me. I don't mind helping you out. You figure then your cycle is anywhere from 31-32 days. You said you guys had s_x like crazy....................which means you probably hit it somewhere btwn 25- 29th. Let me know your progress. Don't be surprised if your preganant on your first try. If the math is right and you had s_x btwn those days there is a good chance. Keep me posted.

Thank you so much... what about you the MOMMY TO BE* I am just like you I love to read the BFP's it gives me hope... I would love to know your symptoms... is this your first child? I know its only been seven days since the first time he didn't pull out... but like 2 to 3 days after the first time I had more discharge and slight cramps... the past couple of days I have just been more lazy and taking long naps.... the discharge is not some much the past couple of days but we have been having s_x like 3 times a day since the 25th and I hope I am not opened to much but I was really wet when we had bd so I don't know if I am just dry now... I have been going to the restroom a lot both 1 & 2 I hope I am not to nasty but it has been very soft bm's and lately have had quick sharp pains in the lower stomach.... then again I tell myself it could all just be in your head and your not pregnant... some women get pregnant so fast and others it takes forever... see we have been together for 3 1/2 years and have never used protection he just always pulled out... so I know I am not that easy to get pregnant on pre c_m like one of my friends... sorry I talk to much... I just have so many.... well you know... please tell me about what your experiencing!

Your story sounds familiar. DH and I have been together for 13 years (married for 3). We always pulled out too and I never got pg. I was pg with our first in Feb. After our first time trying. I figured he always pulled out and I never got pg so maybe I would have a problem getting pg. That wasn't the case. Unfortunaltly that pg ended in a mc in March. The weird thing is that this baby is due on the day I mc'd the other baby. Maybe a sign that everything is going to be ok this time or maybe me just grasping at straws. I think we conceived around the 8th of July. I had the creamy discharge like you and by the 16th when DH and I had s_x it was very wet making it for an easy entry. I got my BFP on the 21st after having painful sore b___sts and one morning I looked at my b___sts and they looked different. Not big, but different. I had pain on the side of them. It was about a week after ovualtion give or take a few days. You'll know the pain. It is different than PMS pain. It starts off like PMS pain and get worse. The thought of DH touching my bb's sends me through the roof. As of last week (the week af was due (july 24th), I started feeling like I was going to get my period, but nothing. I went to the doctor last Tuesday and she says that is normal. I have my first scan August 10th. Can't wait. I have grown attached to this little person. I can't wait till next spring. I had some real bad headaches too.....which is a good sign also. Lazy feeling I know all to well. You sometimes feel like you can sleep all day. Sometimes I have so much energy and then I crash. This will be our first baby and it will be the first grandchild on both sides. Talk about spoiled little kid. Any questions I can help you out with I will. Ask away.

Thanx Jada for giving me so much hope... by reading on here I have heard of a lot of women mc and it is so sad how often it happens... I hope it doesn't happen to me... I don't see how you guys do it... I am so happy for you... are you one to want to find out what the s_x of the child is... Since I had s_x on the 25 of July I am going to try not to test to early... I am in another forum and some ladies that are on the same track as me and we are going to test on the 8th of Aug. do you think that is to early? I just really don't want a BFN.... my b___bs aren't hurting but I am still having those slight cramps.... I am not having a lot of discharge anymore.... I have been thinking that if I do conceive my this first time I will have my baby around my birthday.... There is not such thing as spoiling a baby/child to much...hehee

Sos--I would test everyday from the 8th to the 12th. Some people don't get a bfp till 16 days after ovulation so don't be discourged if nothing happens. As long as you don't get your period your good to go. Good luck and please keep me posted.
