Got my BFP for Christmas

Haven't been here in weeks, and came over this morning to read Krista's birth story, and thought I should update on myself.

This cycle I increased Clomid to 100mg, and focused on my lining. I added a daily baby aspirin, and alternated daily on drinking raspberry leaf tea, green tea, or pomegranate juice. Drank a glass of red with around implant time for a few days (days 5-7dpo). Used Preseed for the first time.

Got a very faint BFP on an Answer test the afternoon of Dec 22. I've been testing almost daily to watch the progression of it getting darker. I'll be due Sept 3rd based on my o-date. My first appointment isn't until I reach 8 weeks in January (I'll be 5 weeks tomorrow).

I am excited but of course very nervous.

And I turned 40 earlier this month : P

Thanks, everyone. I am sorry to say that this ended up being a chemical. I began miscarrying on Monday evening via light spotting, and knew by late Tuesday afternoon I had passed the baby. Ah well.
