Cue overwhelming shock and awe, as I'm sure this comes as such a surprise!
As many of you know, I got pneumonia last October and haven't been
quite right since. Over the last week or so my cough has gotten bad
again, so I tested at an embarrasing 8 DPO just so I could feel
comfortable taking medicine. BFN. Tested again at 9 DPO, 'cause, well, I
was on a roll and I have tests to waste. BFN.
night, I barely slept because of my coughing. When I did sleep, I had an
intense dream that I woke up and got a very faint line. Then I woke up
and maybe sorta got a very faint line. I take this as hard proof that I
have developed magic powers.

What We Did
This was our 10th month/cycle
trying, but 7th with decent timing. I temped, used OPKs, and drank green
tea when I remembered. This was the first cycle that I temped
vaginally, so I attributed my pretty chart to that.
On O-2, O-1, and O+1 we used preseed and did a little of this:
Then DH argued that we'd only had sex three times and that couldn't possibly be good enough. I rolled my eyes and complained a bunch.
have a million symptoms, but I'm not convinced any of them are
pregnancy-related. The only relevant difference was my lack of spotting.
Usually I have a 10-day LP with spotting for 1-3 days before my period.
I didn't think too much of it, since I have had cycles in the past when
I didn't spot. Curly, however, thought this was a big deal -- and
dammit, the bish was right!
How I Told DH
was away on a business trip all week, and he was expected to get home
last night around midnight. If I'd tested positive earlier in the week I
probably would have just told him on the phone; but since I got my BFP
the day he was coming home, I waited.
I was going to make a
little sign that said "big brother" and tie it around hoverpup's neck
before I went to bed, knowing he would run and jump up on DH as soon as
he came in the door. However, I was way too excited to go to sleep
before he got home, so I just stayed up and told him as soon as he came
in the door. Hugging ensued.
cannot possibly express in words how much this community has meant to
me. You guys are amazing and I am so glad to have gotten to know many of
you! I will leave you with this card, which I feel appropriately sums
Congrats! Have fun with J today!
I love you Secret Bumpie. This totally just made my day/night/weekend! There are not enough GIFs to explain how excited I am for you.
I <3 you!
