In short, I’m Pregnant!
For 3+ years, I’ve been trolling blogs and infertility forums. Wishing and dreaming that the “BFP” (Big Fat Positive) post would be something I could share one day.
I never planned how I would announce this special moment – and now I am just speechless.
I’m pregnant. ***Let me just let that sink in*** I have a little one (maybe two) growing inside me.
Still in shock.
On Wednesday, I had a hunch. I was still very crampy, I felt like my cycle was coming on any minute now… but it was different. So I drove to CVS and bought a test. I couldn’t believe how quickly the “+” showed up. I couldn’t wait to tell hubby in person, so I emailed him this picture:
He was speechless. Next thing I knew, he was at the door – he came home from work to give me a hug. We both didn’t know what to say!
That evening I spotted just a little, so I took another test – still positive. I called the doctor the next morning and they took a blood test – still positive.
Last night I took another test – still positive. I am in awe. And I’m grateful to God, so grateful.
I have another beta (blood) test tomorrow morning so I am praying all is well!
Here were/are my symptoms:
d2p5dt: Cramps, feel like my period is about to start, irritated
d3p5dt: Cramps – front to lower back, irritated, sleepy, breasts sore
d6p5dt: same, and gassy (Clearblue Plus: BFP)
d7p5dt: Cramping subsided a bit but keep feeling a twinge in my lower abdomen, gassy, breasts still sore (Clearblue Plus: BFP, Beta positive: 60-something-something… I was in such shock, I forgot the numbers)
d8p5dt: Less cramping, twinge still in my lower abdomen (hard to explain), nauseous… (First Signal: BFP)
