Well, I did test as planned this morning and… POSITIVE!
I got up at the shocking hour of 4.30am (about an hour ago) to do the test with T before he left for work ‘just in case’ it was good news.
At first, on the test window of the stick it looked like a line straight away, but when I compared it to the box i realised the line was across the window, not down like it should have been so I thought that was it.
But then, as I stared at it, willing a line to appear, the faintest hint of a vertical line started to appear like magic… ohmygoodness!
I left it a minute or so until I could be sure I wasn’t imagining things… then took it through to T, who was still in the shower, with a big smile on my face. He said “that’s a definite line!” and then gave me a very wet hug and kiss! We went downstairs and had a celebratory cuppa before he went off to work, now I’m sitting in bed with my laptop taking it all in.
According to the wonderful www.fertilityfriend.com my due date (going from ovulation) is 17 June 2010, a few week’s after T’s 30th birthday and just before our 6th wedding anniversary.
I’ve got no symptoms to report really, just the ones that lead me to think we might have been lucky earlier on in my cycle. Somehow, the day after ovulation, I just felt pregnant. I was bloated and a bit crampy and I just had a feeling. I also had a vision of a baby boy – so we’ll have to wait and see whether that comes true or not!
Aside from that, i’ve had days when i’ve been particularly hungry, and I had a really lightheaded and dizzy spell on CD20, which was 4dpo. Last time with Lilly, I remember having really sore boobs by this stage, but that hasn’t happened this time… at best there is sometimes a dull ache which is almost inperceptible… I haven’t been able to decide whether I was largely imagining things at times.
I suppose the pink tinged cm on CD 27 – 11 dpo – must have been implantation. I had hoped that might be the case, but by yesterday I was just so nervous about doing the test!
So there we are, doing it all again. Wow.
Right, better get up and have my shower before my darling little Lil wakes up. She is going to make a lovely big sister!
