Wow, a BFP :)
Thu, 06-02-2011 - 6:25pm

So I'm definitely in a little bit of shock that I'm down here in this BFP section. I woke up this morning (13 DPO) at 6 needing to pee very badly, so I took the test right then and there and, althought it wasn't as dark as the control line, it was very clearly positive. I used a FRER a few hours later just to double check, and obviously it confirmed the earlier test. For the past week, I've had a very strong feeling that I was pregnant, but I just didn't want to let my mind get ahead of itself so I tried to not think about all those intense symptoms I was having - awful breast tenderness, abdominal soreness and cramping, unusually abundant CM, and mostly lots of peeing! See, I had some toned down versions of some of these symptoms last cycle, thought I could be pregnant, and ended up with a BFN, so I didn't want to get my hopes too high again this cycle.

I'm feeling so elated, grateful and anxious all in one. Although I'm a little bit guarded because of my recent miscarriage, I'm much more hopeful and optimistic than I thought I would be. I suppose I just want to enjoy what hopefully is the start of a healthy pregnancy. Thank you for all the support and encouragement you've shared with me thus far. I hope that I can continue to offer the same to all of you until your BFPs and beyond :)

- Lucia

Thank you so much for your kind words, Kate and Lydia. Torie, I will pop in to PAL eventually. I think I'm a little nervous about joining any expecting just doesn't feel quite so real yet and I'm also afraid of jinxing it :( I know, silly, right? Thank you!!
