BFP at 29dpo!! Cd44 no early symptoms

Hi everyone. . So I got my bfp At 29dpo cd44 on a 28-30day cycle. Had lap in sept for ruptured ov cyst.
I poas twice in the week after missed af at the beginning and end of the week all bfn and took it as that as i had NO symptoms .. other than what I usually have before af comes.
Cp was vey low so I was waiting for af.. cm was normal. .
Last week.. around 20dpo I did get a nasty bout of nausea but put it down to something i ate and being pregnant never crossed my mind lol.
So ive gone the last few weeks waiting for af as I was convinced shed show.
Walking around wearing a liner for the day it decided to make a show. .
Well my breast started getting fuller around 25dpo and this is a usual sign of af.. but.. then they whent beyond the point of what they usually go and were a bit bigger.. I had been having dizzy spells for around a few days and then decided to poas using online cheapie ..and looked at the stick thinking ah yes . Of course ..one line... but wait .. there was two thick pink lines..after a double take I was thinking what the hell? yep 29dpo /cd44.. BFP!!
We only bd twice this cycle two days in a row so I know its not a late conception. . Just no show of symptoms till around 20dpo which were obviously not enough for me to think I was pregnant. .I think I was convinced with the bfn after missed af ...
Other symptoms I got.. that are obvious now but didn't think anything of before. ..
*very argumentative
*certain tastes I usually liked I now didn't .. I thought maybe they changed the product? Lol
*very arrousing dreams. . Well this is out of the ordinary but thought maybe I wasn't getting enough bd as we hadn't since lol
*diarrhea. . Yes I had it ..around 17dpo and it lasted around 3 days ..it came on very unusual but put I down to I had a bug but I felt fine lol
*heightened sense of smell. . Every thing has just plain stunk to me.
Well there it is.. now that I know the nausea seems to come worse haha
Good luck to all. . Especially those of you who don't have symptoms and are looking for hope. ..! :)

Birthday Baby Bfp

Hi there My Birthday is on Friday! I couldn't have picked a better present! I wanted to share my story with all soon to be mommies, so hopefully you can recognize symptoms to get that early BFP! After 4 mc, and one ectopic that caused a salpingectomy to left tube and salpingostomy (repair) to the other... I can tell you first hand there is hope :-).
1-2 dpo: Nada thing other than the strange dream of a pregnant woman.
3dpo: Ouchie my back hurts like AF has started.
4dpo: Back still hurts, sleeping like crazy, not an ounce of ambition, gush of watery cm (eeeewww)!
5dpo: Pain in the back, woke up stuffy (flu?), notice watery cm. Yep not doing anything today, sharp little pricks off and on in belly??
6dpo: Back pain still, ouchie got a toothache, thinking that the possible flu is a sinus headache whole face hurts! Still no ambition! Instantly angry with DH for no reason.
7dpo: Back ache pretty much gone (whew!), I turn into a carnivore I literally told DH "I tried to feed the dragon, and only red meat will do"... okay so now I'm pretty sure I'm crazy... must be this sinus infection.
8 dpo: Woke up feeling fantastic ( lasted 20 minutes) Back to feeling terrible, have to move no ambition, dog comes in the house and the smell of cold dog sends me wheeling, gagging to the bathroom, whine the whole time moving.
9 dpo: Feeling pretty good. Fluttery tummy that started 7dpo, feeling rather frisky, talked to Ex husband got a little crazy. Decided I'd better take a test cause I am not myself and at 4:30 pm got a medium light BFP!

Hopefully this one goes on without a hitch! Good Luck Ladies! A Bucket Of Baby Dust, from me to you! ♥

Here we gooooooo!!!

This is kind of a different story. Not your typical 2ww. I'm 38 years old with only 1 fillopian tube. I had an ectopic pregnancy about 4 years ago. I never thought this was possible!!!
1dpo-cranky bad cramps
2dpo-noticed my bobs never stopped hurting after ovulation. Cramps are gone. No cm
3dpo-no cm. headache. Irritated at the whole world.
4dpo-bbs still hurt to the touch. Started getting suspicious when the pain was localized to the outsides of my breasts and not all over. No cm
5dpo-bbs still hurt. Thought of intimacy made my stomach turn. Cm is back
6dpo-ok, had enough of the bb pain. No bloating which would start about now for PMS
7dpo-leg cramps, bbs are killing me. Little cm. way irritated
8dpo-where is my PMS???? No bloating, no headache, sore bbs
9dpo-bought a test without delay simply because I had no PMS sympyoms!! Very faint bfp
10dpo-dizzy. Smells make me gag. Bbs still sore and only getting worse. No cramps, little cm.
11dpo-bbs are driving me nuts. Driving makes me dizzy. And if I see chicken again I may vomit. BFP!!!!
12dpo-restless sleep, sore bbs, still not a lot of cm. darker BFP!!!
Before I got pregnant, the dr told me I had a vitamin D deficiency. 2 weeks after taking 50,000 iu/week, here I am!!!!! It was the vitamin d that did it!!! Never got the "abundance of cm", no cramping, no "implantation spotting". Nothing but sore bbs from ovulation on!!!!

BFP after 3 years and ovarian tumour

After 3 years of trying and having gone through the tests for IVF we were told we just needed one final repeat check then would have IVF the next month or so. In an internal scan they spotted a mass on my ovary, looked like a cyst, after an MRI and CT scan it was confirmed as a 4.5cm ovarian tumor. To be brief, I had surgery in march 2014 to remove my right ovary and the tumor (confirmed as cancerous but all traces removed in surgery) then we were told we could go straight to IVF, but before we had chance we fell pregnant au naturel in June, just 3 months after surgery, amazing! 19 weeks now and still cant take it in. Here are my symptoms, had more symptoms other months (and im a pro symptom spotting after 3 yrs!) so had no clue.

1dpo onwards - sore side of breasts (normal)
8dpo some mild cramps at night, thought I brought them on by thinking about it
11dpo slight sore throat and slight stuffy nose, felt a bit achy but hard week so didn't think anything of it
12-14dpo v mild cramps, thought AF would come, woke up at 4.30am for no reason
16dpo took 3 tests, all positive, 2-3 wks

My advice is DON'T GIVE UP HOPE no matter how tough it gets, a huge sprinkling of baby dust to all xxxxx
Also if you have LOTs of spotting starting 8-10 days before ur period get it checked, this was my main symptom of the tumour but I didn't know it till after the surgery.

Bfp!!!

So excited to make this entry. Reading these blogs has definitely helped me get through the 2ww! I did have to do injectables/ovidrel/iui and I am so excited I finally have my bfp!
Dpo symptoms I noticed:
5 dpo: gassy! Especially after eating, and it didn't matter what!
10 dpo: starting getting slight stomach aches after eating again didn't matter what
10 dpo: thought for sure I was getting af had cramps exactly like I do before af starts mild-mod but I could feel them in my upper thighs which is kind of a tell for me. ( so sad thinking af would be here soon )
11dpo and on going to the bathroom more often (nervous every time!!)
12 dpo a few mild cramps but they feel different, stomach aches again. Kind of feels like burning stomach

13 dpo took a home test.. Positive!!
Didn't want to get to excited because of the meds

14 dpo blood hcg test, came back in the 400s which they told me is really good for my first pregnancy!

Hope this helps good luck!! Baby dust to you all

TTC for 2 years, blocked tube, adhesions, IUI, chronic spotting before period and finally SUCCESS!

Hello :) I have spent literally the last entire year of my life Googling every possible infertility issue and every phantom early pregnancy symptom. It was really consuming my life. I was living in this constant 14 day limbo and month after month getting my hopes up during the two week wait only to be sadly disappointed when my period would come without fail.
About two years ago I started experiencing extreme pelvic pain not related to uterine cramps during my Period. Sometime after sex I would have trouble even standing due to the pain for any length of time lasting up to 3 days after. I am 26 years old, my husband is 36 with an off the charts sperm count and motility. At this point I expressed my concern to my OBGYN during a routine exam. She scheduled me with a RE to do a sonohistogram. He could tell something wasn't normal with at least one of my tubes so I was scheduled to have laproscopic surgery in December 2013. During the surgery, the doctors found tons of heavy abdominal adhesions and that my right tube was proximally blocked (at the uterus). The doctor said we were likely to be pregnant in 6 months with timed intercourse. Well 10 cycles passed and we decided to move forward with IUI. Two weeks later I was devastated with a negative pregnancy test. We really were facing the fact that the doctors wanted to move us to IVF and I really couldn't find much info online about successful IUIs with tubal infertility, even one blocked side and one open side. We decided we would finish our last IUI cycle before IVF and take time to decide if we really wanted to spend the $13000 it would have cost us for what felt like a huge gamble. Well yesterday at 10DPIUI I was not experiencing the usual spotting I have every month like clockwork on 9DPO, I was at work and just felt some heaviness in my breasts and decided to come home and test midday without holding urine for more than and hour... Just for the hell of it I guess. Well you can imagine my complete shock when a light pink second line showed up. I threw up I was so blown away! That was my instant reaction!! I took another test 24hrs later and it was still light, but darker than the day before! I mostly felt compelled to share my story for anyone feeling helpless from long term TTC and dealing with tubal factor infertility. As long as one tube is patent, IUI can work!! I am the living proof of this now. I never thought we would conceive without IVF! Good luck to anyone out there dealing with something similar. I wish you luck and happiness. Thanks for reading my journey :)

BFP 1 yr TTC Absolutely no symptoms!

Just got my BFP after 1 year ttc over the moon! I came off the pill in Aug 2013 and my periods did not return until May 2014. During this time I had a lap and dye which came back clear and I also started acupuncture in March 2014 which I am convinced returned and regularised my periods. I was a week overdue for my period had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever and I'm very in tune with my body so was shocked to see the second line. I'm still only 6 weeks and feel great (sore boobs only nothing else) so here's hoping for a healthy sticky bean!!! Best of luck to all the ladies out there never give up xxx

Rainbow baby!!!

What a happy surprise! We lost a baby at 11weeks, this Summer, and had a subsequent D&C. It was 3 months ago and this is my 2nd full cycle afterward. We used OPK's and made love every other night for a week during the fertile window.
A few symptoms, in case it helps anyone :)
- heavy ovulation cramping on both sides
-low back ache starting around 6dpo
-subtle lie abdomen pulling around 10dpo
-I also took one baby Asprin per day during this month as a recommendation from my Doc.

Miracles happen ya'll! Have hope :)

got a BFP at 45 with 2 nd IUI please don't loose your hopes

Hi Everybody,

I have been seeing fertility specialists and heard similar stories that for my age it is not possible to get pregnant with my eggs but donor eggs (Which was very stressful to hear because I did not have any babies ) and my chances are 1%.
I was hopeful and determined so I did not give up my hopes- infact I told the Doctor and Nurse that "I feel I am going to get pregnant"
for more than my belief I was just hoping that they would stop any discouraging words when I say so :)
I believe in self confidence, nothing works for me without it.

If you ladies would like to know anything about tww and other little tips I followed I am glad to share 'cos its too much to mention here.
I was diagnosed with a uterus polyp and the doctor recommended me to do a laporascopy to remove the polyp and me and my DH was very nervous but that was the best decision I ever made in this journey. Right after the lap I did the 1 st IUI and the next cycle which is the 2 nd IUI in which I got pregnant.I prayed everyday and cried asking for a one baby regardless of all negative comments from fertility specialists and nurses.

Positive Thoughts-BFP Amen (Clomid & Progesterone)

Hi Everyone,

This has been a long journey but I will keep it simple. I am 33, DH 34; our first. Avg <26 day cycle, 11-13 Luteal Phase.

2012-Laproscopic Surgery to remove 7 Fibroids & Text Book Endometriosis. Dr. said start trying!
2013-Took things lightly trying. No pressure, no real rush but started to feel anxiety
2014-TTC 3 (March, April, August): Went to one doctor she said Clomid would not work, referred me to Fert Specialist and he told me IVF was my only option; I cried and was devastated. Decided to go the semi-natural route. He said it was possibly my tubes, I had chlamydia in the past and it could have never been treated, he never checked to see if I was ovulating or checked my hormone levels.

August 2014-
I didn't give up hope so I started taking pre-natal vitamins
1. I did the fertility cleanse (70% disciplined on that)-Natural Fertility Shop (uterus cleansing)
2. Went to see a massage therapist - 2 times (1 x per month-it's expensive), started enzymes to help my body break down food.
3. Went to a nurse practitioner who worked for several fert specialist in the city; she gave me clomid and progesterone prescription.
4. I took clomid day 3-7, progresteron 5 days after color change on opk. Small amounts of EWCM, and later after ovulation I had Creamy CM.
5. I am 17DPO and I tested 09/15/14 (2x's) , last period was 08/16/14 and I am preggers. I was petrified to test but I did. I will get a blood test tomorrow.

Symptoms: Very little-thirsty, boobs, lil cramping (very mild), metal taste for a few minutes, gaging when brushing my teeth. I use fertility friend and that help pinpoint ovulation and my cycle.

God is good. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby dust to you all who are trying. I know how you feel. Things I did differently-I didn't overly temp after I ovulated to lower my stress level. I also kept thinking positive thoughts; trying to envision being pregnant.
