TTC Twins Diary: 10DPO FRER test results, am I pregnant?

results are in frer 10dpo

Cycle and testing update for the first month TTC. Join me as I symptom spot during my days past ovulation, and finally get an answer with a First Response Early Response (FRER) pregnancy test.

I took the following supplements this cycle to TTC twins naturally:

My diet remains low carb/keto. I continue to focus on weight-loss.

Cycle day 8

I had egg white cervical fluid today, which means I am coming into my fertile period. This throws me off my regular track. I usually ovulate a bit later in my cycle (around cycle day 17) . This means I may ovulate early again this month.

Cycle days 9-11

Negative OPKs and one day of sticky cervical fluid. On CD 11 I took an OPK late at night and it started to look a bit darker. I am panicking I am ovulating any day now. This is very early for me.

Cycle day 12

Egg white cervical fluid today and a positive OPK. The OPK is as dark as the control line. I also had a dip in my basal body temperature.

I have had ovulation cramps on my right side, and maybe a bit on my left. BD today, thank goodness my husband came home from work early, otherwise I would have missed the window this month!

Cycle day 13 ( Ovulation day)

Basal body temperature is still low today. And the OPK is darker than the control line. Today I hit my peak LH surge. I have ovulation pains again on the right side. Today is the day I ovulated.

I was also able to BD once in the morning and once in the evening.

1-6 days past ovulation

Negative OPK on cycle day 14. Days of creamy cervical fluid. One day of bloating. But other than that, no other symptoms.

7 days past ovulation (Implantation day)

Today I had a dip in the basal body temperature chart. As well as irritability, constipation and a sharp ovulation type cramp on my right side. Is this implantation day?

I took an Easy@home pregnancy test at 7dpo and it was stark white

8 days past ovulation

First thing this morning, I took an First Response Early Response (FRER) pregnancy test at 8 dpo and it was stark white negative. Super depressed. I think I am out. I should have had a positive by now, especially with an FRER. My only symptom today is constipation. Well isn’t that great :/

9 days past ovulation

Basal body temperature is back up to an elevated level. No signs an no symptoms today. I figure I am out for this month. Very depressed. I went out and purchased a two pack of FRER, and ordered two more off of amazon for next month.

I took another FRER at 9dpo in the evening and it was a stark white. A blaring BFN. Darn it. I cried a bit, and figured Ill just try again next month. No other symptoms to report.

10 days past ovulation

I woke up today and used one of my Easy@home pregnancy tests with first morning urine. As it dried I swear I see a vvvvvvvvvfl or dark shadow. I have the epitome of line eye. I had one FRER test left so during my second morning urine I caved and used it.

And right away I see an unmistakable very faint line. I am excited but cautiously optimistic as I had an early pregnancy loss (chemical pregnancy) before. I tell my husband the good news. And will get my betas done tomorrow.

Of course immediately after I tested positive I had nausea. Maybe it was just a queezy stomach due to excitement. I hope this line progresses… and maybe I will even get a pleasant surprise in the ultrasound!

Stay tuned for an update in my next blog post and follow my TTC Twins journey.
