BFP- DPO symptoms and what I did to conceive
Im 32 years old, and have never been pregnant (I've been off BC for over 5 years). My DH and I decided to start trying in April 2018. What we did was: I have been taking prenatal pills for about a year, and tracking my cycles. I found that my cycles are VERY irregular. One month Id have a 32 day cycle and another could be 60 days. I had no idea when or even if I was ovulating. GLOW predicted my average cycle of 40days. Based on that, I started using Clearblue Digital OPK 11CD after last menstrual cycle. To my surprise I got a (+)OPK on CD26. Other than OPK and prenatal, my DH took a zinc pill everyday in April, and we used Pre-Seed.

We are so happy that we are blessed enough to go through this process as "easily" as we did. We were really thinking that I would have a hard time conceiving. I know how stressful the process is and can be so I hope that my journey can help someone out there.
BABY DUST to you all :)
