Guys… GUYS… it happened. I finally got my BFP!!! What!?!?! Never have I ever been blessed to see a second line. Not once in my life, and certainly not once in our 5 years actively TTC (trying to conceive). Shocking and exciting and nerve wracking and so many other things!
Check out our reactions and us sharing the long awaited news with family and friends below:
I had definitely been losing hope, and I think part of me simply couldn’t believe we’d ever get our happy ending after being disappointed time and time again. But on the flip side, perhaps that was just my way of guarding my heart. We protect ourselves the best we can I suppose.
Anyways, our lines have been getting progressively darker which is encouraging and I’ve been feeling increasingly unwell which is also welcomed as it gives me hope that all is progressing well.
It is obviously VERY early and there is always a risk for a chemical or miscarriage, so we really are trying to take it day by day, but we’ve never once made it this far so that in itself is something to celebrate.
Here’s a rundown of my 2ww symptoms:
Pre-Transfer: constipated but overall good
Post-Transfer: very very gassy, bloated, very mild cramping
Lightheaded before eating
Very mild stretching feeling
Still a little lightheaded/dizzy, now after eating (in spells)
Chocolate spotting (medium heavy) after bm
Super gassy and bloated
Very dull pinch lower right side
boobs mildly tender
light brown spotting
sharp pain in right boob for a minute
sharp pain below right boob after for a minute
Nauseous dizzy and hot upon waking (very short spell)
Dizzy and nauseous while packing
Frequent urination (but also increased fluids intake)
cervix had been low, now high
some cramping on/off
4dp5dt (flight from NY to TX)
Hip pain, pinching in uterus
Snapping, electric shock down front of uterus
short wave of nausea
mild increased urination
insomnia/wake to pee
So there you have it! That’s all for now. Need to go have a nap. Literally. I’ll be back with more thoughts and reflections on all of this shortly! xo
