this is me right now
long back story, TTC #1 for 2 years, and 5 pregnancies in that time, none stuck.
this month I didnt much like my chances. I posted a vent 2 weeks ago about being tired and sick and grumpy and not wanting to DTD. Only managed it twice all month.
started testing last week at about 23 days into cycle. dont know exactly when I O'd but thought about day 14 which is usual for me. My cycles are regular 28/29 days. All my other pregnancies I've had definite symptoms and positive tests really early - I think my earliest was day 23. Tested a couple of times a day from day 23 to 26 then gave up. decided definitely negative then and promptly went out to celebrate/commiserate and had a fair bit to drink. tested again day 28, still neg. ran out of tests and gave up anyway. cant tell you how 'non pregnant' I feel., and on top of all the neg tests, lack of symptoms and lack of DTD this month...well....Anyway get to day 31 today and think hmm thats weird. Buy a test on the way home from work....and get a BFP !
cant get excited, just think there must be some mistake. also really worried as since I 'knew' I wasnt pregnant this month I've been drinking wine, eating soft cheese, and eating ham and salami like crazy!! Normally I avoid all that stuff for all of the 2ww....I've even been drinking de-caff coffee for the last 2 weeks...except for the last few days when I've been back to strong coffee and loving it!
I feel terrible...could this be the long awaited BFP?
No point getting excited but am also really worried about how bad Ive been after being so careful for so long :-(
should I be excited? Could the BFP be a mistake? Line was faint but definitely there. DH spotted it from a few metres away!
help am going crazy...
thanks for reading this turned into a bit of a rant!

FX this is a sticky for you
As for eating/drinking the 'wrong' things, it largely doesn't matter this early.
Relax (as best you can). I really hope this is it for you!!

Fingers crossed for you!

from conception to before I found out I was pregnant I ate cheese, drank wine, had taken cold and flu tablets and nurofen and did heaps and heaps of physical lifting and throwing. dd has turned out ok!

Congratulations OP. I remember your previous posts. I really hope it works out for you
Posted 23 January 2013 - 09:24 PM
Everytime I eat all the wrong foods and drink I'm always pregnant without knowing
Posted 24 January 2013 - 06:00 AM
thanks so much everyone. I'm going to get some more tests today (why oh why did I only buy one last night?! Oh thats right because I was sure it was going to be negtive and didnt see the point wasting money on extra tests!) and hopefully go for a blood test as well to see how my HCG levels are.
fingers crossed, I guess

Congratulations and good luck , I hope it's a sticky one for you
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:07 AM
Good luck OP!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 02:43 PM
Fingers crossed its a sticky one for you! I wouldnt worry about eating / drinking at this point, its still such early days.
Hoping this is a big congratulations for you!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 02:48 PM
Congrats to you.
Don't worry about the food stuff. I would eat drink be merry until pregnant.
Posted 24 January 2013 - 02:54 PM
Nah, don't worry about it, I did that too with my first pg. I had a number of big drinking days before I realised I was pg. Congratulations!!!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 03:02 PM
Congratulations OP!!!! hope this one sticks
Posted 24 January 2013 - 03:07 PM
I have heard many stories like this - people do the "right" things in the tww and then nothing.
But as soon as you think you aren't pregnant and start drinking the coffee and wine and cheeses etc... boom it happens!
Starting to think I should try that, might bring me some baby luck!
Awesome news, don't worry about what you have eaten/drunk. This early on I wouldn't think it would matter too much - imagine all the people who aren't trying to get pregnant and do anyway, and they have no idea either.
Be happy , this is all good news
FIngers crossed for ya!

isnt that always the way! congrats op all the best and hope to hear a happy update soon!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 04:34 PM
Well done op, wish you all the best
Posted 24 January 2013 - 04:45 PM
Fingers crossed the "bad stuff" has done the job for you.
I remember doing my FET and then having to do a photography course in the absolute freezing cold sitting on wet concrete for hours.....
I reckon it must of snuggled in deeper to keep warm as I got my ID twins from it!!
GL and hope all goes well. Keep us posted!!!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 06:36 PM
Thanks so much everyone! I feel really touched by your responses and all your kind wishes
Im very pleased to be able to give you an update....another bfp this morning and a confirmed positive blood test at Dr today! It's still sinking in. I know I've got a long way to go but I am at least pregnant right now, so that's worth celebrating!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 07:52 PM
hooray!! thats fantastic op! all the best for a snugglier stickier egg than the world has ever seen!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 08:11 PM
maryanneK huge Congrats!! FX for a sticky bubba
Posted 24 January 2013 - 10:12 PM
That is just fantastic news. Good for you.
Posted 25 January 2013 - 06:27 AM
thanks so much everyone! I have to have another blood test in 2 days so here's hoping i get a lovely big HCG rise!
I'll let you know
Posted 26 January 2013 - 10:02 AM
Big congrats OP xox
Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:43 PM
Update! Just heard from the doctor with a second blood test result....
I was so nervous and just
that I'd get a good rise, hoping for HCG doubling in the 48 hours between tests
Imagine how excited I was to hear that it hadnt just doubled...it had tripled
Its a good level for this early. Trying so hard not get excited but I've had 4 pregnancies that have never even made it this far so its a good sign..maybe this is going to be my baby
keep fingers crossed for me
Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:49 PM
