Mommy To Be.?

I've been married for 2 years (I'm 20 years old.)  4 months ago me & my husband were toying with the idea of having a baby. & At first it was just a thought, I was still on birth control. A month ago "baby fever" REALLY hit me hard & I got excited over the idea of me being a mommy. So I stop taking my pill & we started trying for a baby.  REALLY TRYING.! & nothing......!
Last week is when weird stuff started happening,
I was in bed by 11pm
Tired by 4pm
I craved sweets (still do).
I was getting cramps
BLOATED (still am)
(I work in a restaurant) my co-worker gave me leftover rice & I almost burst into tears.
some what sore boobs
Last night (this morning rather) I decided at 5:45am to take a pregnancy test.
& a little less than a minute later I got the faintest positive EVER.! I had to take the test apart to make sure I what I was seeing was correct. A positive.!
Here's the kicker, I have weird irregular cycles so I don't always ovulate the day I think I do.
according to my last period I ovulated on July 8th, but that wasn't the only day I had stretchy cervical mucus.
Long story short I have NO idea when I got pregnant.  July 8th was the only day I was really "trying to get pregnant" & there's no way in hell I would have a positive test in a week. Once I get a stronger positive (hopefully) I will go to my doctor & find out when I conceived.
I guess the best way to get pregnant is to stop trying.! :P

if you have irregular cycles you can ovulate at any time! My cycles have alwaya been irregular was on the pill a couple of months and stopped taking them because we went out of town for a month and forgotnto pick them up. Although I had my cycle at the end of the last month I finished taking then I didnt ovulate till like 3 or 4 weeks later which is later than i should have and bam! I was pregnant.  If you got a faint line your more and likely preggy. My obgyn said that if you have irregular cycles sometimes you ovulate irregular as well.  Congrats mommy!!

Why wait make an appointment now lol. Me and my husband were trying for a year.   My period was like 3 days late which never was that late. We were shopping in Walmart nwe passed thru the pregnancy test saw the 89cent pregnancy test the cheapest one lol seriously I thought it would come out negative like the other test. After I bought it I waited 2 days later and still no period. Next morning I took it whille my bf was taking a shower. & there it was a positive. Lol I felt so blessed.  I guess I just needed to stop thinking about and stop stressing about it.  P s I lol when you said you  you took the test apart lol
