I don’t know why I did a pregnancy test today… I just had to check… and if my eyes are not mistaken there is a line that just changed our lives!!!
My last cycle started on the 15th February with a normal period of four days with medium to heavy flow and all the grumpy works!
I’ve been averaging anywhere between 22-31 day cycles. Quite a wide fertility period but hubby was amenable to plenty of sex! Days 9, 11, 12, 14 and 17 were happy days!
Then followed the dreaded “two week wait” and I felt totally different to last month. It was more of a resigned feeling of oh well there is always next month! Sore boobs kicked in at day 19. The kind of sore where you squeal if hubby hugs you!
I tested on day 26 and got a negative result which for some reason I felt was right! Next day my period arrived and I had somewhat of a sad meltdown! I cried so much at anything! Over the next two days (days 27-29) I had very light flow with barely anything overnight and not soaked tampons. I put it all out of my mind as crazy thoughts (but it was totally there) – what if it’s implantation bleeding? Yes I googled!
The boobs had stopped being sore and I carried on with life. But just at the back of my mind was that niggling thought. I had to work away for a few days so put off retesting until today (day 33). The boobs had been sensitive and kind of heavy but not like before.
Early this morning I was laying in bed busting for a wee and feeling odd twinges across midriff. I did work hard yesterday so just convinced myself it was muscles (do I have any?) complaining!
It was no use trying to put it off… so off I went leaving hubby snoozing in bed. I used one of Tesco’s normal tests which gives 1 minute results… so as I was walking back upstairs with fuzzy eyes I wondered if I could see something? Could it be a line?
I gently woke up hubby and asked him for a second opinion! Yeah. He could see something too!
With much hugging and snuggling we started checking the dates and whether it could be possible and what a faint line meant. Yes we really could be pregnant!
Fingers crossed that this tiny life-changer likes its home, stays put for long enough, and joins us in late November as a healthy baby.
I am totally terrified right now but also very excited and happy. Think we need a new word for this feeling!
For those of you also trying to conceive I wish all the best. The symptom checking does drive you crazy. I think I felt a bit nauseous yesterday (day 32), I have an odd metallic taste in my mouth which I think has been there on and off for a few days, there are weird twinges in my belly, my sense of smell is greater than normal, and I’ve eaten lots of chocolate (but that could just be comfort eating!). Of course all of these things could be just down to my dairy intolerance! I’m terrible at waiting and I know it’s hard but really only time will tell. Good luck.
Update – 35days… still there but still very faint. Wonder why?
