I have been off of my birth control since March of 2010. At that time, my husband and I weren't actively TTC, but we weren't avoiding it either. Now, almost two years later, we would really like to get pregnant.
In June, we had the basic fertility testing completed and neither one of us had any problems. We attributed our inability to get pregnant to not seeing each other often enough and at the right times (we both work shift work and can be opposite of each other for a few days depending on how our schedules fall). I haven't been tracking BBT's yet (that will start this month if AF arrives), but I do track my cycles, know by calendar date when I should ovulate, and occasionally use OPK.
I had a positive OPK early in my cycle (at least four to five days before I expected it). I was actually supposed to ovulate on January 2nd and I did have EWCM around that time. If I actually ovulated early, then I am definitely late, but if I count on my normal 36 day cycle with ovulation on January 2nd, then AF was due yesterday.
The last few months I was always excited before AF came because I experienced all the "symptoms", breast tenderness, cramping, skin breakouts, etc only to be greeted by AF. I now think that those were actually all my normal PMS symptoms. What is weird this time around is that, I don't have any of the PMS symptoms! My breasts don't hurt, no cramps to speak of, and I broke out a little bit early last week, but now it is all clearing up. Also, I seem to have a decent amount of cervical mucus - not stringy like egg white, but not completely milky either. I am so confused.... Could I finally be pregnant? I'm actually afraid to test because I don't want the disappointment of a negative test! How long should I wait, and do you think we finally got blessed with a baby? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
