Hi Everyone,

My name is Alanna and my boyfriend of 5+ years are TTC our first child. We just started trying this month - I ovulated on October 18th so I'm 9 DPO & am thinking of testing tomorrow! I'm 36 years old & figured that it might take awhile but I have a pretty strong feeling that we got it done on the first round!

I've experienced a host of symptoms including implantation cramping, sore nipples & nausea already believe it or not. I keep questioning if this is really happening or if I'm imagining my symptoms. Hopefully I'll find out soon as I can't really think about anything else right now. I'm wondering if anyone else is playing the waiting game & what they're feeling. I need to talk to the ladies that can relate as I'm driving my BF crazy with the am I/ am I not game.

Looking forward to hearing some stories.

Good luck to all!

Alanna

How exciting, Alanna! Welcome to the board, though I hope beginner's luck was on your side and you'll get to move on soon! The waiting game is enough to drive anyone a bit crazy, especially since normal luteal phase symptoms (caused by the progesterone surge during that phase) and PMS symptoms can be so close to early pregnancy symptoms! I'm crossing my fingers that this is it for you! Did you test this morning?

Welcome to the board! Sorry about your BFN :( It's still early though. Will you test again in a few days? When is AF due?

I have great news! I broke down & tested this morning & got a BFP!!! I can't believe it's happened after just one cycle. It's a bit overwhelming but I feel so blessed. Sadly, I'm at school all day & can't even tell " daddy" till tonight. I'm all weepy about it (I can blame the hormones now), and I'm exhausted it's gonna be a long day.

Congrats on getting pregnant so quickly! I think sometimes as women we confuse our symptoms as PMS, but we know our bodies and when they are out of sorts. That's awesome that you were able to recognize your symptoms so early. So sorry that you had to wait all day to even tell the the father. You must have been bursting with excitment to tell people.

GL and best wishes for a happy and healthy nine months!
