I'm still numb and can't quite believe it! Is this normal? When will it sink in?

Clargo55 Mon 09-Dec-13 20:44:11

Did you get a BFP?

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 20:47:53

Yes, sorry it is on another of my threads from last night but I should have been clearer!

j200 Mon 09-Dec-13 20:49:11

Fabulous!! Exciting times ahead whoop whoop xx

Congratulations.
My first bfp I did about 10 tests, came home early from holiday and missed my favourite festival because I just could not process the fact that I was pregnant.
It took ages to become reality for me, so I know just how you feel OP.
Go and look at baby clothes to feel even wierder!

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 20:59:21

Ha! Thanks,glad I'm not the only one. It just feels like a dream.

StellaLuna82 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:09:46

Congratulations!! Did you feel any different during your 2WW at all? smile

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:12:32

Yes, very calm. I just kind of knew I was pregnant, didn't stress over it and am actually more anxious now that I got my bfp! Ha ha! I keep thinking af is gonna turn up anyway.

StellaLuna82 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:15:49

It must be such a surreal experience. Do you mind me asking how long were you trying for and did you DTD every other day?

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:18:42

Five months and no, we didn't. Not sure when I ov'd exactly but say it was cd16 - we did it cd13, 14, 15 and 18. A few times either side of that fertile window too. Tje massive difference for me this month is that I totally relaxed. I stopped charting, obsessing and worrying completely.

StellaLuna82 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:23:39

Oh well fantastic news and congratulations again. Keep MN up to date with your progress!! smile

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:29:29

Thank you :-) Good luck to you.

mssleepyhead Mon 09-Dec-13 21:31:42

Rally happy to hear how well things are going! At least you have 9 months to get used to it : ) enjoy it!

sazzlehopes Mon 09-Dec-13 21:35:58

VJ!!!!!!!! Just randomly popped into this thread because i was intrigued by the title and it's you and OMG congrats! So so so pleased for you that is just excellent news! x

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:40:39

Thanks :-) Have tested three times in 24 hours and the line got darker each time. Think I'm about 11 dpo today and am bound to keep testing for a few days yet!

Lynsey14 Mon 09-Dec-13 21:43:28

Yay!!!! Congratulations!!!

Procrastinating Mon 09-Dec-13 21:57:31

Stella if you are ttc it was egg white that did it for me every time (4 pregnancies).

VJONES I remember being hit by a huge wave of nausea about 14dpo. Quick, eat things while you can!

Feelingfatty Mon 09-Dec-13 21:58:15

I have got my bfp today... Have done a 3 cheapies, 1 tesco, a clearblue and a superdrug and all faint bfps! Done a superdrug digital and there in clear words PREGNANT!!! Ekk hope it sticks! Congrats op! I think we met in other threads when I was bambi27??

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 22:01:27

Yes, I'm sure we did! Wow, did you do all those today? How many dpo are you?

Feelingfatty Mon 09-Dec-13 22:07:29

Yes I did so them all today grin haha! Basically i started with internet cheapies and got carried away as I didn't have any with fmu so were pretty faint so had to save up my wee through the day ha ha! Last one was quite dark smile and obviously digital was digital but all clear bfps so no idea why I've done so many just couldn't believe it after trying for over a year!! Yah! Hoping for a nice dark test in the morning! I'm cd 26 of around a 28 day cycle, u?

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 22:12:10

Cd27 of a 27 day cycle. Got a vvv faint bfp last might, then much clearer ones today. Will test again in the morning!

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 22:12:56

Sorry, that was meant to say 29 day cycle

Feelingfatty Mon 09-Dec-13 22:29:09

Pretty much the same then!! I had messed up my dates and didn't think I was due af until sat and then realised it was thurs so by that point had already had fmu so looking forward to testing in the morning to!! grin Is this your first? Sorry i can't remember! This is my second!

VJONES1985 Mon 09-Dec-13 22:30:52

Yes, my first!

Feelingfatty Mon 09-Dec-13 22:32:48

Thought you said that! How exciting!!! Have you told anyone other than dh of course?!

VJONES1985 Tue 10-Dec-13 08:19:26

Is it normal to still have a IC line this morning that is very feint? It's fainter than yesterday's frer but think it's slightly darker than yesterday's IC. Oh god, need to calm down!

Congratulations Jones & Fatty!

Don't worry Jones - the lines vary in darkness, particularly if you're using different batches or brands.

Brilliant news! thanks

Feelingfatty Tue 10-Dec-13 08:34:54

Yes I've heard they can from batch to batch I wouldn't worry to much! (Says me peeing on another test to compare!!)

Feelingfatty Tue 10-Dec-13 08:35:06

And thanks last one

Felyne Tue 10-Dec-13 08:42:21

Congratulations!
It can take a while to sink in!
I sometimes caught myself wondering whether I should believe the pregnancy test or not ("was it really positive?") and then I realised that I had a newborn baby so yes it was...wink

DearDinah Tue 10-Dec-13 11:49:44

Congrats both thanks

VJONES1985 Tue 10-Dec-13 18:55:05

Am I ever gonna stop taking pg tests?? Lol. I'm just so anxious!!

Feelingfatty Tue 10-Dec-13 19:24:28

V jones I would do another tomorrow(I'm going to!!) then stop and do another at the end of next week just to make sure it's still positive but it will be smile

Writerwannabe83 Tue 10-Dec-13 19:34:08

I was still taking pregnancy tests about a month after my initial BFP grin

There was just something so reassuring about seeing that second line!!

I'd take one now if I had one, lol grin

Feelingfatty Wed 11-Dec-13 08:27:36

How did it go today v jones? Nice dark lines?? Mine have got much darker today so no more tests for me (although going to buy some conception indicators to see it going up over next few weeks!!grin) good luck xx

SoMuchFruit Wed 11-Dec-13 09:56:20

Just saw this on another thread and had to come straight over to congratulate you!

Yaaaay! Thrilled for you thanks fgrin

VJONES1985 Wed 11-Dec-13 12:35:54

Thanks :-)

Fatty - haven't done one today as yet. Am trying not to. What are conception indicators?

Yay, Congratulations!!!! grin

Feelingfatty Wed 11-Dec-13 14:39:07

Isn't that what those ones are called that tell you how far along you are? That's my last test now as I have (sort of) accepted its real!

mama31 Wed 11-Dec-13 15:16:58

Major congrats Vjones!!! There's a msg for you on the party thread! So pleased for you! Just a question did your cycles or LP get longer?? Or did they sort themselves out? Just I'm spotting still, LP 10 days and hoping this isn't the issue for me!

mama31 Wed 11-Dec-13 16:01:12

Just hoping I get the same happy ending VJ! Brill news for you! X

VJONES1985 Wed 11-Dec-13 16:38:06

Mama - well,for the first three months my LP was seven days, then in month four it was 11 days. This month I tested around 10 dpo and it was positive. Am now 13 dpo (I think).

mama31 Wed 11-Dec-13 16:42:38

That's great to hear! I've stopped all the b6 etc so just letting it all settle itself and I think I have 10 or 11 day LP so will just assume it's not a problem now and let nature take its course!!! I'm impatient though so easier said than done!

H&H 9 months to you lovely! X

VJONES1985 Wed 11-Dec-13 16:47:40

Mama - I was on b6 for month and it made no difference at all. My LP seemed to sort itself out and, judging from pains, implantation was 9dpo.

mama31 Wed 11-Dec-13 17:25:17

Thanks VJ good to know!!! smile

VJONES1985 Wed 11-Dec-13 17:28:05

Do you know how long it takes for hcg to appear in urine? Am trying to work out when implantation actually happened...

mama31 Wed 11-Dec-13 23:23:10

No clue VJ! I'm pretty useless with the real technical bits....dtd at the right time, opks and taking vits is as far as I know! I "think" it takes about 2 days to show on a test from implantation so if showed up on dpo 11 you may have ovulated on 8dpo, but I'm not expert just what I've learned from reading the bus threads!

VJONES1985 Thu 12-Dec-13 17:56:17

Well, I last tested on Tues and got a faint line so I left it until now and have just got a very dark line :-) So feel much better now and am guessing that means I either ov'd on cd14 or 15. We dtd on cd12, 13, 14 and 17.
