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? unsure.gif 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... rolleyes.gif
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!!

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  unsure.gif

Massive congrats!!!!

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 original.gif  FIngers crossed for ya!

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!!!

Update! Just heard from the doctor with a second blood test result....
I was so nervous and just hands.gif  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 eexcite.gif

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 blush.gif

keep fingers crossed for me
