Thanks for the Congrats Ladies!! xx

So i am going to let you all in on what i did differently then tell you my symptoms!

What i did differently this cycle

1. I made myself a new year resolution to eat more healthy and sign up to Michelle Bridges.
    So i started doing this, i cut out all takeaway, softdrink, etc. i lost 2.8kg in 3 weeks

2. In my healthy eating i read in Mish's book that green tea is good for the body, so i was drinking about 2-3 cups green tea per day upto ovulation ( and i didnt know it increases CM)
(i Think this tea is something special!!) I had never had so much CM as i had this month!!

3. I O'ed CD16, which is the earliest for me ever! I didnt use OPKs this month or temp, but when i noticed so much CM i got curious and was stunned to see a Positive.
I have also been taking Premular (Vitex) from a Naturopath since September.

My cocktail tablet mix from naturopath includes
Vitex (This was to help bring ovulation forward)
Pregnancy Multi
Fish Oil
Zinc

4. I decided as i wasnt going to be taking note on Ovulation this cycle, I bought Preseed over net and used this 3 times whilst BD over Ovulation ( when i found out)

5. DH and i went away over new years and a couple weekends this month so i was much more relaxed than usual. Staying at home i was always thinking about TTC.

So that is practically it!

My Symptoms:

2DPO: Sneezing for no reason (thought i had a headcold)
3DPO: sneezing gone
4DPO:Cramping in lower abdomin, comes and goes, like flutters, DH commented "So are you Pregnant"
he never comments!
5DPO: cramping
6DPO: cramping, slight nausious,
7DPO: back ache, cramping, creamy CM, cervix very low, hungry, Tired at 3pm, nap on couch
8DPO:cramping,backache, waterery CM, went to bed with sore throat, tired in arvo
9DPO: cramps, backache, watery CM, sore throat gone upon waking, Tested faint BFP on FR, feel like i need a new bra!
10DPO: slight sore (.)(.), cramping, backache, been to toilet 4 times already. BFP!!

And I have Cravings since 2DPO: cherry tomatoes (Roma only) and Pine Nuts and warm milo!
Basically when 3 pm comes around im exhaused and need a nap.

So ive had some symptoms. dont feel like being sick though.

And now apparently i have a BFP!!! Still faintish but FX it gets darker!!

Baby Dust to you all!!

Thank you! original.gif

Ah, are you doing 40 weeks since your last period?
It's more accurate to do 38 weeks from ovulation given you know the date. wink.gif
I will just be telling the GP that my last period was on 31st Dec so they calculate the 40 weeks from there. This is not true, but saves explaining the whole IVF thing. I don't want it on my referral anyway as the birth centre may decline me (though they have no reason to, it was male factor!).

Oh wow, the 16th, so you're just 8dpo then?
Pretty good to get a positive then! I thought you were 10dpo?

I didn't get any implantation bleeding. I think most people don't though. wink.gif

Just reread your posts with 10dpo. Are you sure your notes are right for the 16th being O day? I think it must be the 14th?

hey girls hows it hanging?

mini i have a question for you - so after your cps, how logn did it take for your cycle to go back to normal? cause after being sick and taking steroids in august, i went from a regular 28 day cycle to 47, then 39, and just when my ovulation was almost back to normal at cd22, then i had the cp to stuff it all up again. o day was 26, then the one just gon was cd31....so i guess my question is what do you reckon my chancs are of ovulation around cd 14 this month?
feels like too much to ask to me but i am being super healthy/have quit smoking and drinking, have not had any junk whatsoever, lots of tea etc etc....god please let me ovulate in good time!!

I brought some maca root powder for dh to take today (have i already said this?) and i ended up caving and brought some opks! I wasnt gonna test but i really wanna know when i have ovulated for sure! so much for my relaxed approach lol..
p.s applied for a house this arvo through my real estate friend, and we are the only ones going for it! fingers crossed!!
