BFP after chemical pregnancy

So happy to have got my BFP! We tried for 4 cycles, with a chemical pregnancy on the 2nd cycle and then took a cycle off after that. So 5 months in all. I had a really good feeling about this month from the beginning. The previous one was the first since the chemical, and I was totally frantic and desperate and stressed. This cycle I was absolutely determined to just chill the eff out. I had loads of fun stuff planned, and I allowed myself to have a few drinks even during the TWW (which I have not done the previous cycles). I was the calmest and happiest I've been since starting TTC. I'm sure it helped somehow. We inseminated 3 times during my fertile week on CD 12, 14 and 16. I ovulated on CD 16 (maybe late on CD 15). Anyway, here are my symptoms.

1-6 DPO: nothing except some cramping and spotting on 3 DPO. Obviously way too early for implantation, but I noted it anyway because I have never had either at this stage of my cycle so it was very odd. I felt very happy during this time and had a deep certainty that I was going to be pregnant. My cm was kind of yellowish creamy all this time, but not plentiful. I started using a natural progesterone cream morning and evening on 3 DPO because a test after my chemical showed luteal phase progesterone was on the low side.
7 DPO: woke up feeling slightly nauseous, and then had about 2 hours of gentle but persistent cramping. I felt strongly that this was implantation. Cm was wet and milky, some white stretchy stuff in the evening. I had shooting pains in my boobs and joints, and achy legs and lower back. My cervix was too high to feel (never happened before).
8 DPO: Woke up with swollen hands. Felt lightheaded and had a headache. Felt as if I was getting a cold. Creamy and white stretchy cm all day, cervix very high.
9 DPO: Woke up feeling nauseous. Dull ache in my lower abdomen. Cm milky and cervix very high. I noticed really bad spots on my shoulders - I normally get a few on my face as I approach my period, but this was like nothing I've seen before, there were at least a dozen on each shoulder and they were big and horrible. My brain felt foggy and I felt turned in on myself, like I was hyper aware of my own body but everything outside me was hazy. I felt oddly serene. Later in the day I started feeling really rough: weak, exhausted, headache, nauseous, shaking so much my teeth were chattering, aching limbs and joints, skin felt really sensitive to the touch, eating hurt my throat. It felt like I was getting flu. I had a long flight that evening and I had strong cramps for about 4 hours during the flight. I also cried because I found the safety demonstration so moving, by that point I knew for sure because I'm not normally emotional.
10 DPO: BFP in the morning! Line was clear after a couple of minutes. Milky cm, v high cervix. Aching arms, shoulders and neck. Skin still v sensitive. Spots on back worse, spread to collar bones and lower back. Very tired.
11 DPO: Line is darker. Milky cm with a glob of yellowish creamy. Weepy and tired. Mild nausea. Back ache. Stuffy nose. Random twinges in tummy and hips.
12 DPO: Period would have been due today. Felt nauseous in the morning. Cramps low behind my pubic bone on and off all day. Unbelievably tired.
I'm now 20 DPO and have been incredibly tired, slightly nauseous and crampy and headachy on and off since BFP - some days I don't really feel anything, others I feel pretty bad. My boobs started being slightly tender at 15 DPO, but they're still not v painful. The flu feelings, sensitive skin and spots have gone thankfully. Still applying the progesterone cream morning and evening and will do until at least 2nd trimester.

BFP after miscarriage

So, just like many here, I have used this website to get me through those long two week waits (especially when TTC my DD who is now almost 20 months). It took us 18 months to conceive her, so when we started trying for baby #2 we weren't sure what the journey would be like. I got pregnant after about 3 months of trying (Feb '18) but suffered a miscarriage at just 7 1/2 weeks. While this was difficult to come to terms with, I also knew the reality that this was for the best because something just wasn't going well with the baby. I was very determined to try right away after doing some reading about how high my chances were within the first three months of a MC, but after AF came back both my husband and I came down with the flu at the exact time we needed to be BDing. I was very disappointed, but believe that timing is everything. So, as you can imagine I was anxiously awaiting this cycle to finally get down to business! While I don't know the exact date I ovulated, I kept track of my full cycle. The only thing I made sure to do this month was orgasm after each BD session and not go to the bathroom for at least an hour. Somehow I just knew that things were going to work this month - I'm sure that mindset helped!! So here are my cycle days:
CD 1-5: AF
CD 10: BD
CD 12: BD and EWCM
CD 13: BD and EWCM
CD 15: BD - had some cramping on this day that seemed a bit weird. It wasn't located on one particular side, just felt like AF cramps mid-cycle. O Day? EWCM
CD 16: BD - exhausted tonight. Literally couldn't keep my eyes open and fell asleep in my clothes until 1am! I was out cold!
CD 17: I noted weird belly twitches twice today - once while I was at work and once in the evening. I was also peeing a lot more than normal today. I started to wonder if the cramps I had felt yesterday and the frequent peeing might be a UTI.
CD 18: Really weird cramping in the night last night and still lingering this morning. My whole pelvic area and even back are just kind of aching...not sure what's up. Cramping continued into the afternoon - quite uncomfortable. Then all of a sudden it went away (didn't take any pain meds to make it go away).
CD 19: Still have this uncomfortable full feeling (somewhat painful) in the morning when I woke up. Also, I'm smelling everything today! In particular, I smelled stale alcohol all morning and afternoon. This is really weird to me because I remember this specific smell when I was pregnant before (during the TWW). Hard to explain the smell, but I couldn't escape it!
CD 20: Felt a bit nauseous today in the car - not something that ever really happens to me. Also bloated today.
CD 21: Felt totally normal this morning, but have a full feeling in my pelvic area this afternoon. Some slight cramping/bloating, but mostly just full. Craving anything tart/sour. Wanted lemon yogurt but it wasn't tart enough - can't figure out what will satisfy me.
CD 22: CF was creamy today. Also had some diarrhea twice - very strange. The cramping/bloating is still around - noted that if no BFP this month I am genuinely concerned about what would be causing it. I also had very vivid dreams last night - felt very unrested because of it.
CD 23: Woke up with very sharp pains in my pelvic area. Hard to even stand up straight, but I got in the shower and it was eventually alleviated by passing some gas. There was no indication initially that it was gas pain so I was definitely concerned, but it went away right away afterwards luckily. Feeling super bloated today (adjusting pants constantly) - had a big lunch so many that's it? Definitely have an increased appetite today!!
CD 24: Breasts feel tender today, but I've told myself not to consider this a symptom because I'm still nursing my DD and I was tricked last month by my breast tenderness! Had very vivid dreams again last night - woke up feeling very tired. Had a few weird tummy flutters today too.
CD 25: So bloated and full feeling today!! I couldn't suck my stomach in at all!
CD 26: BFN this morning on a dollar store cheapie. If I did O on day 15 this would put me at 9 DPO - still early! By this point I genuinely do think I'm pregnant so I even went and bought a couple FRER's as a way of saying "I'll show you!!" Went out to dinner with my mom and ordered myself a glass of red wine and honestly drank it thinking this would likely be my last glass of wine in a long time so I better enjoy it!! Went to the theater after supper and could feel my boobs tingling the whole time (still not trusting it though), and was fighting to stay awake the whole time.

BFP & Unsolicited Rant

Hi Ladies

If you’ve read my blog on this site then you already know I miscarried 3 cycles ago at 7 weeks and was then diagnosed in short order with mild PCOS, ureaplasma and male factor issues of 78% “irregular” sperm by World Health Organization’s standards. Throw into the mix that my father was battling late stage pancreatic cancer since last year and you’ll understand how (un)well I was faring.

My dad passed away earlier this week before I got to tell him that I’m pregnant again, but I’d like to tell you all, because I know how much reading these stories has meant to me over the last year, in times of both hope and despair.

The number one thing I want to put out there is that I was extremely stressed out and unhappy this month, had given up on this cycle and even had a perscription filled for Femara to start the cycle after I’d take antibiotics for the ureaplasma.

I was still devastated following my blighted ovum miscarriage in early March. In fact, I was experiencing a new degree of emotional rock bottom during the days that sperm likely met egg. All this to say: when people chide women for being stressed during TTC and order them to relax in that weirdly condescending tone I know you’ve all heard, tell them, silently or otherwise, to go fuck themselves.

Empirical experience has shown me that conception is the product of timing, hormonal balance, whatever fertility assists you’re using (be they Western medicine, TCM, Santeria or whatever you ascribe to) and sheer dumb luck.

Don’t let the that patriarchal line of thinking about stress being a “conception hinderance” guilt you or convince you that you’re sabotaging your own BFP. I don’t buy that nonsense anymore. Women get pregnant during wartime and in captivity and under unthinkable conditions. So as if the factor being a woman doesn’t offer enough challenges to begin with, we are then scolded for not somehow being serene enough while we toil towards our fertility goals. It’s normal feel frustrated and scared and isolated in this process. It *is* depressing. We’re gonna feel what we’re gonna feel. Time to shift our notion of psychological accountability while TTC, methinks.

Onto the dirty details. The what-when-how-where of products and practices.

Without further ado:

Stuff That Probably Helped This Time

All month:

•Bayer prenatal supplements
•folic acid (in addition to the prenatals’ folic content)
•4 capsules of fish oil
•C0Q10 supplement
•selenium supplement
•saint John’s wort supplements
•2 drops daily of Woodstock brand “Women’s Repro Formula” (contains vitex, maca and all the usual suspects, $21)
•probiotics twice daily with meals

CD1 through ovulation:

• red clover supplement
• evening primrose oil supplement
• expensive-ass deer antler tea 2-3 times daily (basically you soak it in a clay pot, strain that water and drink it and then add new water, simmer it for an hour, drink THAT and then if you’re feeling like a champ add more water for a final hour long simmer and drink that, too) actually I stuck to this regimen from CD1 til about 5DPO when I ran out and was too broke to buy more... but we’ll never know if it was this potion that tipped the scale

“Mechanical” aid:

• Wandflo OPK’s ordered online from Amazon
• a small amount of preseed injected as close as possible to cervix right before intercourse followed by
• softcup smeared with preseed directly after sex, that be left in for 12 hours
• sorry for TMI but I tried to give myself an orgasm right after inserting the softcup each time (no, my partner didn’t do it lol) because they claim that the contractions cause “upsuck” (ew this word)
• weekly acupuncture
• not in the shower = wearing socks no matter what

Stuff I avoided:

• caffeine (so coffee, tea and chocolate)
• alcohol
• hot baths

Other things I think helped:

• I had an HSG test late autumn 2017 and I had never been pregnant. In the days following it some “debris” and mucus unlike anything I’d seen in that, uh, zone, seemed to be dislodged. I think the HSG might’ve cleared the pipes to an extent that they weren’t before. I’ve conceived for the first time in my whole life since then, which may tell us something about that procedure

• my partner and I timed intercourse every other day from the first day my bleeding stopped until a few days after the OPK’s started to darken. By the way, he was also under instruction from the doctor not to masturbate because it’s thought to compromise sperm count

• my partner started consistently taking a men’s multivitamin, selenium, folic acid, C0Q10, fish oil, selenium and fenugreek supplements every day starting about 3 months ago (they say it takes about 3 months to “build” fresh sperm that reach maturity and are ready to do their job

BFP after m/c with PCOS - IUI, trigger & femara

This was my second iui/trigger/femara cycle, I did iui 24 hours after trigger (honestly I thought this was too early go figure). I’ve done previous cycles without iui and clomid and none were successful. This go round I delayed taking a test b/c I just knew I was out. Low and behold we got our bfp 17 days post iui!!!! I even waited a bit to share my bfp story because it’s still surreal. I am currently sitting at over 7 weeks and got a good strong heartbeat at our 6 weeks ultrasound. Needless to say I cried like a baby when I heard the heartbeat (our first cycle we had a bfp but nothing at our first US not even a sac). I honestly didn’t have many symptoms other than a missed period and slightly sore boobs. We are apprehensive about telling even close family until we at least get to our week 11 US but excited nonetheless and can’t wait to scream it from the rooftops. I just want to take the time to say to my fellow pcos’ers or anyone who needs to hear, if it happened for me it can happy for you. Lots of baby dust and healthy full term pregnancy wishes to all. ☺️

Finally a bfp after 3 miscarriages in 5 Years

Hi my name is Kay and I’m 34 Years with pcos. I promised myself I will write here once I get my bfp. 3years back Had a ruptured ectopic and lost my left tube. Got pregnant again 6 months later but had a DnC for blighted ovum. Luckily got pregnant 6 months later sadly DnC again for another blighted ovum. Made a conscious decision to lower carbs and sugar, do fertility yoga, drink red raspberry tea, ABC juice ( doc recommended) , Chinese herbs with accpunture and homeopathy, clomid, preseed and lots and lots of prayers. Was basically willing to try anything in the last 3 months we had given ourselves to “try”. In the 2ww I had pineapple core 1-5 dpo, 4 Brazil nuts, chicken essence and red date tea. 2 weeks after my birthday felt like I had a glow on my face that I’ve only seen each time I was pregnant. Took the test and it’s a bfp! Was in shock and a bit scared of another BO. Doc put me on progesterone suppositories, baby aspirin , 5 mg folic acid ( which I was already taking) high dose fish oil and hcg injections twice a week. Had gone in for a scan and just saw a beautiful baby at 6 weeks 3 days with a beating heart. Hope this gives someone else hope the same way I had hope reading all these bfp stories full on happiness and faith. Hope all get their bfp soon and baby dust to all.
Ps the symptoms I have sore breast, slight nausea randomly, tmi watery cm , no appitite , bitter taste in mouth, dizzy spells and moving between fatigue and insomnia.

AFTER 3 YEARS, 3 MISCARRIAGES, 3 ROUNDS OF CLOMID... I GOT MY BFP!!

WARNING: LONG POST> I promised that I would post details of my BFP (when that day came) and now I can! I hope this post will encourage others.

We tried off and on for 3 years. I charted EVERYTHING!!! So many tears and so much frustration, but I felt in my heart that it was going to happen... on God's timing, not mine (which is hard to accept sometimes).

*I HATED hearing people say, "When you stop trying it will happen." How do you stop trying when it is something that you want so bad... and you kinda have to try.lol

After the 2nd chemical I had the doctor run a RPL blood panel. Although they assumed everything was fine and it was "just a fluke", I knew something was off. The results came back great... but I did have a double copy of a gene mutation MTHFR! I have 3 perfect boys and NEVER knew of the problem, but my youngest is 10. I figured that maybe the gene gets worse with age and that is why it was causing issues.

We waited a few months and I started taking appropriate vitamins to help with this gene mutation, extra Lmeytholfolate, and baby aspirin. Well, after 5 months we got pregnant for the 3rd time! This time the BFP was darker and I didn't bleed right after my period was due. This one seemed to be a keeper! However, at my first doctors appointment I felt like something was wrong and voiced my opinion to the doctor. She tried to reassure me that all was fine because I wasn't bleeding, or cramping, But i knew something was wrong because I had no major symptoms at all. I requested an ultrasound due to my previous losses and she agreed to ease my mind with an ultrasound (I was 8 weeks).

*I know it's normal for some women to not experience major symptoms, but I know my body and it wasn't like me.

We had the ultrasound the same day and there was no baby. The sac measured 6 weeks, and was diagnosed as a blighted ovum. I told the doctor that I wanted to try and let my body get rid of it on it's own because I read that it was better for future conception/ less invasive. I had to wait until I was 13 weeks for it to start on its own!! However, it did all come out on its own within a 24 hour period. (horrible experience)

We were both kinda freaked by that whole experience and decided to stop trying for a while... maybe even for good. After all, we had 3 perfect boys and would just focus on them and our family. However, that ache in my heart never went away... I just felt in my heart that we were supposed to have another baby. I had to pray a lot the next few months because I felt like God placed the desire on my heart, but I was forcing it on my schedule and my timing.

We took a break, but I continued to chart EVERYTHING... just incase. Why do we (women) have to be in control of everything?! lol Anyways, the miscarriage happened in March 2017. We decided to try again in July 2017. I noticed that my cycles went back to normal 29 days and that was a relief. However, WE COULD NOT GET PREGNANT AGAIN. I didn't understand because we had 3 losses within the two and a half year period and now nothing.

*WE TRIED EVERY CRAZY THING: Pineapple core, socks to maintain temps, standing on my head, staying in bed after sex, no peeing after, Preseed, soft cups, food changes, Clomid, Progesterone, and sex on specific days, and so much more.... it was crazy!

The doctor suggested Clomid (although I was ovulating) in order to increase our chances each month. I took it for 3 cycles with NO LUCK! My cycles did change from 29 to 31 and 33 days due to the medicine. Also, I suffered severe anxiety and depression after my last dose... IT WAS TERRIFYING!! I PROMISED TO NEVER TAKE IT AGAIN. It didn't start until the last dose was finished and almost out of my system.

I had ENOUGH of EVERYTHING! I decided to completely stop in November of 2017. My husband and I couldn't take it anymore. We realized that it obviously wasn't a part of God's plan or will for us and we had to TRUST him despite our desires. After all, He blessed us with children to begin with and that was enough.

The only thing left was the Ovia app on my phone and that I decided to keep just to track my periods in hopes they would return to a normal 29 day cycle. I can't tell how FREE I felt to just LET GO and STOP forcing it. We took our family vacation in February 2018 and I did happen to notice that it was scheduled during my "fertile week", but I hadn't been using OPKs anymore, so i didn't know for sure if the chart was accurate. I just shrugged it off and focused on the trip, my kids, and the memories we would make. Plus, I needed to get away after the major anxiety attack!

Shocking BFP at 10DPO

I'm still in shock and it doesn't even feel real.
I'm 37, going to be 38 this year. DH is 37, too.
We were loosely trying for #2 after a loss last year at 23 weeks, for 2 months. But our timing was always off as we weren't sure we really were ready. In Feb we decided we were ready to seriously try in the March cycle.
We used OPK's, Preseed, Femara 5mg (I ov naturally, but my FS recommended it to help with AMA), CoQ10, Zinc, Vitex (1dpo to BFP), EPO, baby aspirin, and the kitchen sink.

O day- Mar 10
1DPO-8 DPO no real symptoms, some pulling/pinching in my uterus but I sometimes get that before AF. Slightly sore boobs, but also a symptom of impending AF after I had my daughter last year. Convinced I'm out and I'm already planning the next cycle.
9DPO-bloating in a major way. I normally have bloating, but something felt different. With my first the bloating so bad I cant suck my stomach in, was one of the earliest signs I was pregnant along with the sore boobs. This day was when I started to think a BFP was possible.
10 DPO (9pm)-My boobs feel like they're on fire. Very tingly and painful under my armpits. I realize I felt the arm pit pain a bit on 9DPO as well From 9pm its getting increasingly more painful. I decide to POAS at 1030, realizing its very early and I'm not likely to see anything. i say a little prayer: 'Thy Will Be Done'. 3 min later I see the faintest BFP squinter.
11 DPO (730am)-I take a CB DIGI weeks predictor and indeed PREGNANT 1-2.

With my last pregnancy I took a blood test at 12 dpo and my betas were so low, under 20, so had I taken an HPT, it would have been negative. So I never thought it would be a possibility at 10 dpo. My lutetal length has gone from 14 before baby, to 12, so that could explain the early BFP.

We are thrilled to be having our rainbow baby! And shocked that we were successful with one month of actively trying. OH! Forgot to mention we last had sex 2 DAYS BEFORE O day!!

we will never forget our little flower that never got the chance to bloom. I firmly believe she has something to do with this. And I thank my Almighty God for always reminding me He is in control and to trust in Him, and only Him.

Good luck to those waiting for their BFP's!

BFP after miscarriage- lots of symptoms I've never had!

I had a mc on January 2nd at 8 weeks and got a BFP after late ovulation on the first cycle trying. I had 5 days of ewcm, painful ovaries, and cramping but only barely positive OPKS around normal ovulation time. Once they stopped, I had horribly painful right ovary, especially during sex. I thought it was a cyst or a sign the egg released because I've read after a miscarriage, normally non painful things could become more painful and noticeable. 2 days later, all the ovulation signs came back but were 10x worse, including the "cyst" pain. This time I got a blazing positive OPK! 5 more days passed of symptoms, then my cervix dropped and hardened. I felt bummed because if it stayed up, I'd feel more hopeful that I'd get a BFP. But 2 days later it rose! I still felt a little like we missed it because I was tricked by the first round of ovulation symptoms and we stopped BD for a couple days. BUT, like with my other pregnancies, all of a sudden it was like a wave came over me and made me feel entirely different. I knew I was pregnant and took an HPT 8dpo, March 1, and a faint positive showed. I've taken one every day since and the line is still there! Here are my symptoms:

"fake" ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, right ovary twinges, high and open cervix, -OPKs
real ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, lots of right ovary pain, what I thought was cyst pain, high and open (but not as much as the week before) cervix. 2 days of +OPKs
1dpo: the "cyst" pain FINALLY went away. This is how I know I finally ovulated. -OPK
2dpo: ewcm drying up, high and soft cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
3dpo: ewcm drying up, low and hard cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
4dpo: totally dry cm, low and hard cervix, lots of ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
5dpo: cervix rose and softened, totally dry cm, TONS of ovary pain and cramps (implantation?)
6dpo: high and soft cervix, totally dry cm, ovary pain fading
7dpo: high and soft cervix, cm becoming watery and more abundant, no more ovary pain
8dpo: high and soft cervix, more watery cm but not too much, hit with an "I'm pregnant" flash while shopping. FIVE +HPTs! I needed to make sure :)
9dpo: high and soft cervix, lots of watery cm, +HPT, exhausted
10pdo: cervix lowered, hardened, and it feels opened (what?!) nervous it will end.. tons of cm, sore boobs start, exhausted
11dpo: cervix rose again and softened, tons of cm, sore boobs, so tired i feel like I've been hit by a train
12dpo: stopped checking cervix because it was driving me crazy, increasingly sore and slightly swollen boobs, TIRED, and tons of slippery cm! I am feeling moody and snapping at people when I normally wouldn't, trouble sleeping
13dpo: sore and swollen boobs. hurts to wear a bra. lots of cm, tired! have the "just woke up" feeling all morning

Good luck to everyone!
