TTC Update and 2 DPO

I want to document the entire TTC process for all you amazing readers, well maybe not the entire process, I'll skip the conception part. Haha. And if you know me IRL (in real life) and have never TTC  before, you may want to step out of the room for this.

Anywho, for any of you that are unfamiliar with TTC (trying to conceive), there is actually only a very small window every month when you are fertile and can get pregnant. This part was really surprising to me when I started this journey. All those years that you were told that you can get pregnant at anytime were all scare tactics. Big fat LIARS!

You ovulate once per month, and you are fertile a few days prior to O and about one day after. We all ovulate at different times and many of us do not know exactly when we do, so yes, it is all a big game of roulette and chance. I've never accidentally become pregnant, I've always planned it. I don't get how anyone gets pregnant accidentally with all the math and timing that goes into it - really? You accidentally had sex around the time you were ovulating and your birth control failed you? No judging really, there is nothing wrong with a surprise baby for a happy loving couple. But the whole process is so miraculous in the first place and everything needs to do its job at the exact time that it's just so crazy how it still happens when people are not planning it. But it of coarse does..

So today would be 2 DPO (days past ovulation). I have had a positive pregnancy test as early as 10 dpo with both of my previous pregnancies (ok as early as 8 dpo but only because I am completely psycho and can see the fainest of faint lines, but I have never had it confirmed until 10 dpo).

I thought it would be fun to post my symptoms each day as I go along regardless of whether this cycle ends in a BFN or BFP. And maybe someday when I get that BFP (I hope), I can compare and look back, and hopefully help others like me who want to obsess and compare. I know when I'm actively trying I love reading other peoples symptoms at my exact DPO and then completely over-analyze them.

Some say you don't have any real symptoms until at least 10 DPO, but I beg to differ. I've done this twice now and both times I had very real symptoms that were not in my head. We tried last month and I thought I would totally convince myself I was pregnant, but I didn't. I had zero symptoms and I pretty much knew I was out. Although I still took 24 pregnancy tests. Yes, 24. No judgement please. I get them here on Amazon.com, 25 tests for $4.97 with free shipping, so I feel less guilty about it. Even though I knew I was out, it was still a possibility and I wanted to be sure. Ok?

So here goes:

2 DPO Symptoms

Fatigue: None at all, I'm feeling an average amount of fatigue today that one would feel with a toddler at home who has very wacky sleep patterns.

Cramping: A few very, very slight cramps. And my whole abdomen has been tender for a few days. Weird.

Headaches: None!

Boobs: A little bit sore.

Nausea: None.

Vivid Dreams: None (*vivid dreams have always been a symptom of mine with both pregnancies including BFP dreams BOTH times!).

Test:  Too early

Notes: It's too early still to give my opinion. I o have higher hopes this month than last month!

There you go. I hope blogging each day about this might help the next 8 days pass as fast as possible. Either way is ok with me, although it would REALLY help me get through my previous due date which is right around the corner. I would have been 30 weeks pregnant this week. WOW. I check back in with my old expecting club from time to time and all the ladies have these large, beautiful bellies with adorable nurseries all finished and I still can't believe that would have been me right now.

And for fun, here is a post I did in the TTC board ay 9 dpo on iVillage back in November when I *thought* I was pregnant with my 2nd and listed my symptoms - I was! It's fun to look back because it's so true when they tell you that you'll forget everything. You do.

I promise not to make my posts this long on my future DPO posts. Sorry! But if you enjoyed reading it, you're welcome!

My Name is Vanessa From USA I wish to share my testimonies with the general public about what this great man has just done for me , this great man has just brought back my lost Ex husband to me with his great spell within 48 hours and has also used his great spell to help me get pregnant. I was married to my husband Alans Evans, we were together for a long time and we loved ourselves but when I was unable to give him a child after 2 years he left me and told me he can’t continue anymore then I started looking for ways to get him back until a friend of mine told me about this great man and gave me his contact email (ogbidisolutionhome@hotmail.com). You won’t believe this, when I contacted this man on my problems he prepared and casted a very strong spell for me and brOught my lost husband back within 24hrs, and after a month I miss my monthly period and went for a test and the result showed that i was pregnant. i am happy today am a mother of a baby boy and my family is back again..

at first i was skeptical that it was a scam but i just had to give it a try and i never new that it was my moment of break through , i did get the email from one Mrs. Margaret who was help by this same Prophet Odudu spell to get pregnant , i copied the email and i sent Prophet Odudu an email and it was replied and i requested for the pregnancy spells after some questions and answer , the items to be used was gotten and the pregnancy spell was cast , the first month passed nothing happened and i was thinking maybe it was just like the others and it was a fair trial until the second month i noticed i missed my period for 11days when i check i found out i was pregnant and i can proudly say to all that am a proud mother of a baby boy now , for all those that think such things are scam just like i use to think is that give Prophet Odudu a fair trial and i say you will never regret it, just like how Mrs. Margaret gave out Odudu EMAIL THAT I COPIED so am also giving it out , you can contact this great spell caster Odudu on email: order100.100@aim.com I hope this information gives some one out there hope and faith

I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him.
I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. Hassan mohammed via (supernaturalspellshire@gmail.com) by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after a 4 days my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends.
It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr. Hassan mohammed He works and if you have any kind of relationship problem, he is the solution via supernaturalspellshire@gmail.com
