Finally BFP at 39, no supps!

So at last I am not out this month! I got my BFP early this morning and it's surreal bc I wasn't even getting my hopes up, as I don't really feel PG. I believe the only weird thing I noticed was irritation down there. I have been around this site for over a year, and we ladies always symptom spot inside the 2ww, but I must say that this cycle was where I experienced the least symptoms and I am PG! And believe me bc this is the 5th time in my life I've been PG with one live birth, DD 17. I had a non-viable at 7 weeks in 2015 and took a break so this was my 7th cycle actually tracking my O dates and with much prayer to the Almighty, and one baby aspirin each night, here I am!

I mentioned not much symptoms, but I am still going to give you what I was feeling. Now my cycle is like clock work every 26 days with a 11-12 day Luteal:

2DPO – Nothing much, slept in til 11am. (Daylight saving day) took a long walk with SO and starting to feel irritation in groin and vaginal area and itchy butt. Very hungry. IBS with bloody stool. (not unusual for me prob eating too much sh**) Didn’t sleep well.
3DPO – Super tired in the morning, didn’t want to get up. More IBS. Hungry. Otherwise, all seems absolutely quiet.
Extra tummy churning and loud rumbles.
5DPO – Vaginal and rectum area extremely irritated. Piles?
6DPO – Nothing much, slight discomfort in lower pelvic area.
March 17th/7DPO - 8DPO – Early AF spotting? Not yet.
9DPO – AF due. Not yet. Felt super tired and slept a lot this day, was bloated in the early part of the day then it went. Some discomfort in lower pelvis but not out of the ordinary. If I was still spot checking I would think this is ligament stretching pain.
10DPO – AF here? No AF yet! But strangely no longer thinking I could be PG either. Woke up with slight headache. But no symptoms, no sore or throbbing BBs so I know I’m not PG just waiting on AF to arrive sometime this week.
11DPO – AF? Not Yet. AF is always early never later, but I don’t feel pg so I don’t want to POAS. Late afternoon still no sign of AF. Lower pulling in pelvic. Feeling as though I did a bunch squats and crunches.
12DPO – AF? Nope.
13DPO – Now AF is officially late and I still feel pulling in my the middle of pelvis, especially when I stand up. I went to buy a HPT. Breasts started getting sore that evening, loosing concentration and I sliced my finger while cooking!
14DPO – 4:20am I got up to pee and took the HPT and BFP! BumP! Wow within seconds too! I’ve been super forgetful and sleepy all day.

I sum it up to my only symptoms in the 2ww to be headache and piles. I will keep my prayers going for my sticky bean, I wanted to wait until a see a HB but I have faith this is the one, I just know it.

Good luck to you ladies, your time is coming! ***Baby dust to all!!

BFP at 9dpo! Rainbow baby!

My husband and I have had a tough 2 years. In May 2015 our international adoption of 18 months fell through. In November 2015- I miscarried our first child. We spent the next 18 months exhausting sources with donors. (My husband is transgender- female to male- so we need to use a sperm donor.) Some donors were unreliable. Other sources (from sperm banks like our last pregnancy) too expensive since we had exhausted all of our financial resources between the last pregnancy and adoption. We finally found a donor who was an amazing fit (a family friend actually) and got our BFP the first month with him!

I’m only a few days out of the whole 2 year nightmare- but I am praying this baby sticks- because for the first time in years I feel true joy and hope again. I don’t think I realized how much of my joy was stolen through this whole journey until I got my most recent BFP.

Here’s my symptoms- with a bit of humor because I truly feel you have to have some levity to survive TTC and the TWW!

1dpo-5dpo:

These days were relatively uneventful. I would alternate every other day. One day I would say to my husband, “I just know it. This is our month. Do you think it is?? Am I being crazy or do you think it could be?” The next day I would adamantly say, “I just know it’s not our month. Why does this keep happening to us? I just don’t get it.”

He really loved these conversations.

My symptoms were my usual post-OV symptoms- which are all probably just from progesterone. This includes: cramping, slightly sore nipples, being able to smell things more (for good and for bad), and an usual one for me- cramps in my thighs. My temps jumped a little higher than usual- which is odd for me.

6dpo:

This is when things got a little weird. Around 3pm I felt myself get very warm and noticed that from about 3pm to about 5pm that day- I had a fever of about 99.6 or so. It went away around 5pm though and I felt fine.

I have done some googling and have found casual info about fevers sometimes associated with fertilized eggs- and that causing a fever (like the body thinks it’s an intruder or something)- but who really knows how scientific that is.

My dog sniffs my crotch super weird on this day and I am super tempted to google, “Dog sniffed crotch 6dpo” on google. Kid. You. Not. I admittedly held back.

7po:

This is the day I started to think I was pregnant. Some of the symptoms reminded me of last pregnancy- and then also I just had that “I think I’m pregnant” feeling.

The cramps were super specific on this day. More intense than usual and like a sharp shooting feeling. I was also getting zaps in the sides of my breasts. Super bloated and boobs feel huge. I kept feeling very hungry but NOTHING sounded good to me. That is kind of a common “my period is coming” symptom for me though.

On this day I cried to both my mom and husband something along these lines: “I really really think I am pregnant this time. I honestly think I am just getting my hopes up though. There is no way we could have been successful our first month with a new donor. No way. We are not that lucky. Good things don’t happen to us. *Crying.* I really do think I am pregnant though! But what if I am not!? What if I am just going to be devastated!?”

I did this my last pregnancy too. I get weepy and crazy before a BFP- so it had me pretty curious.

I took my first test on this day (sadly this is late for me- I usually start at some ridiculous day like 5dpo despite fully knowing the science behind everything). It was negative on an internet cheapie- although I was convinced I saw a second line and my husband and I spent a good 45 minutes photographing the test at various different angles and using all sorts of instagram filters on it- trying to see if we could see a second line in photos. I ended up crying before bed assuming I was probably not pregnant (but secretly thinking I really might be- but not wanting to let myself think that too much).

8dpo:

The bloating stayed and I was still getting pretty insane cramping. I just knew this time I had to be pregnant. The cramping felt too different. I was super frustrated though because I had no way to prove this- and I was fighting with my husband at this point- and paranoid that if I was not pregnant I would have to totally just own my own exaggerated emotions vs. being able to blame hormones. Please be pregnant to save face, I was praying.

I took a FRER this day and when I thought I saw a line again, of course proceeded to pry it apart and hold it up to various light sources (which for the record- I am pretty sure will guarantee you to see a line every single time if you do that).

I could barely sleep this night because I was reading stories on this website and so excited to wake up and take my temperature.

9dpo:

BFP two months after miscarriage

I always told myself I would post my story since there are so many different stories and there could be someone going through what I did,end up reading this, and having hope. That is what this website did for me. I never thought reading stories about a bfp (an unhealthy amount of stories a day might I add lol) would have such an impact on my negative or positive mood.
I'll start with a little background story. I'm 26 years old, and from the age of 18 had an addiction that I would try to beat for 8 years. I decided to make a life change and leave it behind however I always felt inadequate, I felt like I could never be a good mom after some of things I had went through. I felt like I had ruined my body and chances of even carrying a child but God saw something different for me. I never thought I would get my life together, meet a genuine guy who loved me and treated me right, and that I would live a life of normalcy. By the grace of God I was able to overcome those things.

In December I found out I was pregnant. I wasn't trying,but like I said I thought I could never get pregnant so I thought it may be stress. I took a test at a week late and it was negative. When I still hadn't started two weeks later I took a second one and it was positive. I was in shock, I panicked, I thought everything I had worked for all of the goals I had in place were at a hault. I honestly didn't know how to feel. Someone close to me talked me through it and explained how God had given me a new purpose in life and those words changed everything. When I really thought about it financially we would be fine,I was in a healthy place emotionally, and I finally got a little confidence that I could do this. I was good enough to be a mom. But after a week of constant cramps and spotting red blood I knew something wasn't right. I went to the ER because I had no idea what else to do,and found out I had miscarried. The heartbreak was worse than anything I had ever experienced (which has been a lot with my past). I once again felt even more inadequate, I thought it was my fault,that my body just couldn't handle it. I never thought this would have such an impact on my life. I had fell in love with the idea of being a mom, of the new life I had ahead of me. The sleepless nights, the stress, but all for an amazing purpose. I went through a depression, the first month I couldn't stop obsessing about it. I had came up with all of these insane reasons of why I had a miscarriage until I realized how it's actually almost normal. I finally had gotten to a better place and we decided maybe we could try and start a family. So we did. After my first period after the miscarriage.
I wanted to try but I didn't want to try so hard as to stress my boyfriend or me out during the process. So I did simple things like checked my discharge daily, downloaded an ovulation app, had sex every other day give or take a few days. I actually started eating healthier, making sure I had my greens every day etc. Which I'll be honest these things still stressed me out. I never realized how stressful getting pregnant could be! I just pictured it like a movie.
I was up and down the entire month.

BFP age 38

Hi Ladies

Ive just got my BFP after 5 months of trying after losing a baby late on last year (the baby was fine, i had an infection). It took us a while to conceive the baby we lost so I was worried about now being a year older. I did a lot of research into supplements that improve egg quality and fertility and I thought I would post here incase it helps others. I had my AMH tested recently and it came back low - 4.3 p/mol. This worried me a lot. After that i had my antral follicles counted and this was fine (17). I'm really not convinced on the value of AMH personally after doing a lot of reading about it. I wish i had never bothered having the test. I also have a retroverted uterus which probably makes things a bit harder for us but i've conceived 5 times in total (2 children).

Supplements I took:

For egg quality:
DHEA (do you own research on this). Its supposed to take 3-4 months to work and i conceived after 3 months. I played around the with dose, starting on 25mg for 10 days, then 50 for 10 more days then 75mg. After 8 weeks i dropped back to 25mg as i had my DHEA levels tested (saliva test - £40) and they were the upper end of normal. I didn't want them higher than this. DHEA i supposed to increase antral follicle count, AMH and egg quality. I would definitely consider it if you are over 35 and have trouble conceiving. There is also evidence that DHEA reduces miscarriage by 50-80% which the impact being most dramatic in older ladies. The side effects i had was slightly greasy hair at first but nothing major, little spots but again nothing major, it made my hair go a bit limp but it didn't get thinner or fall out.

Ubiquinol - 300mg per day
Alpha lipoid acid - 600mg
PQQ - 100mg
N-Acetyl-Cystenine - 600mg
DHA

For general fertility:
Pregnacare multi vit
Vitamin D
B6
Vitamin E

I read the book "it starts with the egg" - i would highly recommend this. After reading it i stopped taking L-Argnine and Royal Jelly. Theres no evidence either way on Royal Jelly but there is evidence L Arginine can be harmful to egg quality and implantation.

After 3 months of taking the above i conceived, although i had only just started vitamin E, not sure if that made a difference.

I've had 2 chemical pregnancies (in the past, not recently) so I have waited to write this until i'm sure this is not a chemical. My tests are getting darker and darker and i'm currently 17dpo. I know there are no guarantees but so far its going ok.

Other things i did:
Gave up caffeine and only drank alcohol if i was out - maybe twice a month
drank wheatgrass powder
Started acupuncture in November - this helped me greatly with stress and anxiety after my loss. I would highly recommend trying acupuncture.
drank lemon water all day - helps make the body alkaline and detoxes the liver
soft cups
Ovulation tests
lay on tummy afterwards (supposed to be good for retroverted uterus)
pre-seed

Symptoms

I ovulated a little late CD 17 or 18.

4dpo - mild sore boobs, tired, a little thirsty
6dpo - night sweats - this is normal for me and i thought i was definitely out - its usually a sign AF is coming, mild headache on and off
7dpo mild cramps like period pain
8dpo - much stronger cramps in the evening, just like period pain
9dpo - night sweats again - expect to start AF very soon as i have a short luteal phase since taking DHEA (9 or 10 days)
10 dpo -mild hot flashes - usually a bad sign for me so was sure my period was coming. Some mild heart palpitations
11dpo - convinced my period is coming although its a little late now. I had period paid exactly like when AF comes. I went out and got drunk that night i was so sure i was out.
12 dpo - Couldn't sleep last. Nothing all day then hot flashes in the evening, gassy, a little reflux at the back of throat.
13 dpo - took a test and got a BFP pretty quickly. Then had some brown discharge and thought it was another chemical. Lower back ache, still feel like period is coming
14dpo - pink discharge when wiping - sure this is not going to last. Cramps, backache, slightly queasy in the morning. woke early again
15dpo - darker HGC test. woke early again, still got lower backache, slight queasiness. No discharge/spotting
16dpo - Struggled to sleep last night, aching legs and couldn't drop off. darker HGC test, mild night sweats, sore boobs, mild back ache. tired in the afternoon.

Currently 17dpo and praying this pregnancy is ok.

Hope this helps someone out there. Best of luck to you all.

BFP after MC and chemical

In Summer 2016 I was TTC for baby #2 and got pregnant the first month trying. Found out it was twins at 7 weeks and saw heartbeats. At a follow up ultrasound at 10 weeks it was discovered I had miscarried between 7-8 weeks (a missed miscarriage). I had a DNC and my body seemed to go back to semi normal cycles right away, and I was cleared to TTC again after my first period. My 2nd cycle TTC after the DNC, I got an early BFP at 11DPO but started spotting by 13DPO and tests were not getting darker, and a BFN on a digital. I got my period the next day and confirmed I had a chemical pregnancy. My 3rd cycle TTC after the chemical, I got another BFP! I'm currently 5.5 weeks. After the roller coaster 6 months we've had, it's hard to get excited or feel confident this one will stick around, but I figured I would share my BFP story nonetheless. I had loved reading them on here over these many months of TTC.

I typically have 29-30 day cycles and O around CD16. Even though I'd been successful in the past with conceiving without temping or using OPKs, time was wearing on me after 2 losses so this most recent cycle I started temping and used OPKs to confirm my O day.

CD16-17 - ovulation (fertility tracker and temps place O on CD17 but I think it happened late on CD16 from O pain)
CD21 - heartburn in the PM
CD22 - brown spotting when wiping, mild cramping (implantation??)
CD23 - diarrhea twice, mild menstrual-like cramping
CD26 - BFP on a wondfo

I've now had 4 BFPs in my life: 1 child, 2 losses and this current pregnancy. With 3/4 I had implantation spotting/cramping, heartburn and diarrhea as early symptoms before BFP.

BFP success story with IUI and PCOS (some advice on what REALLY works included)

I am currently in my 9th week and have been on various forums for years waiting to write my own story. This journey taught me a lot about myself and taught me not compare myself to others because we all have individual needs and challenges.

I am 31 and have had PCOS since the age of 13. I am not overweight but have always been careful about what I eat as can easily put on weight while my friends could stuff their face with no consequences. I also hardly had periods on my own - had to take birth control hormones to bring my cycle for years. Wish I never did as once you are ready to conceive your body has been messed up by pills and depleted you of certain vitamins. Takes a while to get back to normal.

I have been trying to conceive since the age of 28.
I had two failed pregnancies :
at the age of 29 - miscarried at 5 weeks (conceived naturally)
at the age of 30 - ectopic pregnancy after IUI (no tubes were lost due to methotrexate working for me)
In total I had 3 IUIs and the last one worked! YAY!
12/26/16 1st day period
12/28/16-1/1/17 femara
01/06 hcg shot 250
01/07 and 01/08: two days of IUU (42 mln sperm) and 01/08 (23 mln sperm)
01/17 BFP!! faint positive
01/19 BFP!! bright positive
01/20 BFP!! confirmed positive blood test HCG 126
01/24 HCg 965
01/26 HCg 2299

ADVICE FOR WOMEN WITH PCOS:

I finally got pregnant and attribute it to really CLEANING what I eat and what my husbands eats. I have cut out ALL processed foods, ALL processed Sugar, started juicing every day (mainly 80% veggies, 20% fruit) juices, mostly GREEN (incl kale, spinach, ginger, cucumber, celery, green apple etc). Started eating a clean diet: vegetables, fruit, nuts, fish, meat, chicken, high protein grains like quinoa, buckwheat. We both started taking high quality supplements such as Coast Science PCOS and Coast Science Male Fertility supplement, and some others like Vitamin D, COQ10. Also I went to a well known fertility clinic from the beginning and followed the recommendations of the doctor who was very precise and methodical.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THERE IS NO EASY FIX WHEN YOU HAVE PCOS BUT YOU NEED TO COMMIT YOURSELF TO LIFESTYLES AND DIET CHANGES. NO EXCEPTIONS. IT TOOK ME MONTHS TO REALLY TO DETOX AND FOR MY BODY TO FINALLY CONCEIVE.
Also Green Juicing Brought my period back after about a month of juicing! If you regulate your cycles, and clean your diet your body will be in a much better position to conceive and most importantly KEEP the baby.

Wishing everyone success in this important pursuit!

BFP at 12 DPO

Like most of you I have read through these stories for hope and strength during the TTC process. On Mother's Day 2016 I found out that I was expecting our first baby. Sadly at 10 weeks 4 days the baby quit growing and the heart stopped beating but this was undiscovered until our 12 week ultrasound. The bones that make up the baby's skull did not develop properly and there would have been no viability no matter what. I took the miscarriage hard. It was so difficult to celebrate and be happy for other friends when they announced that they were expecting. I had days of anger, resentment, etc. Why would this happen to us? My husband and I have a loving home and I felt robbed of something.

I had a D&C in July and five weeks later I got my first period. The part they don't tell you is that your body continues to think it's pregnant so you've got a lot of hormones running through your body those first few weeks after the D&C. I really tried SO hard to get pregnant every month after that and was devastated each time it didn't happen.
Thankfully I was able to work through the depression and pain and really got to a place of peace about our loss. I encourage anyone who is grieving to give yourself time, focus on other hobbies and interests, and take time every day to breathe and relax. Also don't make the BD time so "clinical", it should be fun. I used my FitBit relax feature once or twice a day last month. Now in to the exciting news... :)

January 1: got my period, happy frikkin New Year

BD on January 9, 10, 11, 12, 14

I had EWCM on January 11 and 12. Confirmed ovulation on January 12 with Clearblue OPK.

1-2 DPO: nothing
3 DPO: EWCM, very strange because I never get it after
4 DPO: feeling like I'm getting a cold
5 DPO: diagnosed with the flu! 101.5 degree temp, chills, aches etc
6-11 DPO: resting heart rate goes up 10 BPM on FitBit. Flu had me resting and sleeping a lot
12 DPO: on a whim I decided to test but I didn't want to waste a FRER test so I used a wondfo OVULATION test! It was immediately two dark lines. I still wasn't convinced so I used a clear blue ovulation test and got a smiley face... i knew then that I should use a FRER. I dipped it in and it was a dark positive very quickly. And, being the Type A person I am, I used a digital clearblue to confirm right after. I was in total shock. My husband and I both cried.

I have already been to the doctor and had everything confirmed with a blood test.
I am excited to share our story of loss and hope, and I hope that it helps bring encouragement to anyone else who has gone through miscarriage.
Praying that this is a sticky bean :)

Severe Endometriosis

This board kept me going when I was struggling so I want to share my story to give others hope that they might yet get there happy ending.

I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis in January 2013 after years of bladder, bowel and period issues. Turns out my i had large endometriomas in my left ovary, which in turn was stuck to my bowel and there were lesions of endometriosis just about everywhere else. The doctor told me if I wanted children I needed to start trying immediately. I was booked in at a specialist centre to have the endometriosis removed but before I got called up to have the operation, and after only four months of actively trying, I was pregnant. I had my first little boy in April 2014. At Christmas 2014 we started trying again, four months later we conceived again. Sadly we lost that baby at 10 weeks. I was desperate to become pregnant again and with every month that passed I get more despondent - particularly when I passed the usual four month mark and it hasn't happened. I was worried my son would never have a sibling. After the miscarriage my endometriosis pain was far worse and spread to my right side. I was on the endo diet, temping, using OPKs and in desperation started acupuncture after Christmas. I was booked in for the operation to separate my adhesions and remove the endometriosis for April 2016. By March after 9 months of trying I had given up hope and, for the first time, did not really "try" - I was stopped temping and using OPKs. Perhaps all the stress of trying to conceive had taken its toll, perhaps the acupuncture worked I don't know but one week before I was due to go in for my operation I got my BFP. This time it all worked out and I had my second little boy at the end of November. I hope my story gives someone hope as after my miscarriage I spent a lot of time looking for success stories, looking for hope.

I thought, "Now I can upload my BFP story on twoweekwait!"

My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive since July. I have two beautiful children ages 6 and 9 from a previous marriage, and am in a beautiful place in my life to bring a beautiful life into this world. I am with the love of my life, my babies are at a perfect age, and I am doing well in my career, but it doesn't take over my life too much that I wouldn't be able to have a baby. So long story short, I took my Mirena out on June 9th, and months later, no baby! With my first two it was so easy, actually I didn't even know I was pregnant with them until I was about 7 weeks along both pregnancies, so I guess I didn't even try haha.. I thought it would be a piece of cake!

after 5 cycles, my boyfriend and I decided to make a huge life change.
No alcohol
Lots of exercise
No caffeine
Clean meals with no preservatives
Vitamins (I took conceive easy, and he took fertilaid along with my prenatals)
Pressed
Raspberry leaf tea

The cycle after trying all this for a month I became pregnant, but lost the baby two days after I got a confirmed pregnancy test. They recommended two months to try again, and so we did, and I am pregnant! And this time was so different than the pregnancy where I miscarried. So many symptoms.

I ovulated on January first (how cool is that that I conceived on New Years eve!)
1 DPO: Nothing out of the ordinary obviously except a small feeling that I felt we made a baby!
2 DPO: Nothing
3 DPO: Feels like something is going on down there, not sure how to explain it. Sore nipples, which is different because normally before AF my entire breasts would be sore
4 DPO: Sore nipples continue, pressure in lower abdomen, tired had to take a nap
5 DPO: Weird dreams start. I am not one to ever dream, let alone remember my dreams, but I had three or 4 dreams, and I remember every detail about them all. One dream I had a baby! Sore nipples, pressure lower abdomen
6 DPO: Lower back pain, sore nipples nothing too noteworthy, although I did take two naps that day but I stayed up late the night before
7 DPO: Weird metallic taste in my mouth, like I put my tongue on a battery. when I tasted this, I actually got excited because I remembered reading about it being a pregnancy symptom! At the same time I was hoping I wasn't making these symptoms up in my head. Watery mouth, sore nipples, lower back pain. That night I had more vivid dreams, one where I was so thirsty I drank two sodas (one pepsi, and one dr. pepper) in a row! When I awoke I was actually thirsty, and drank three glasses of water in a row, that's never happened to me before.
8 DPO: My lower body, from my back down to my ankles were sore and crampy as if I had climbed a hill or something! Metallic taste continues, and is getting worse. I kept having to eat something to make that taste go away, it was bothering that bad. I felt nauseous at night, my mouth was watering so bad and actually walked fast to the toilet thinking i was going to throw up, fortunately I didn't. When I went to lie down for bed, I had this weird electrical zap feeling all over my body, it would zap my shoulders, my legs, my neck, my arms, like electrical static or something it was weird! Had a dream I was with my friend who had a baby, she was breastfeeding hers, and I had a baby in my arms and I was bottle feeding mine and thinking "this is so much easier" (random) But remembered in my dream I saw a birth mark on the babies right leg on the side. When I awoke I told myself if I am pregnant, and I have a baby look out for a birth mark!
9: DPO I decide to take a test, because my symptoms were so strong. I took a wondfo, and my boyfriend who was brushing his teeth in the bathroom at the time, picked up the test and said he saw a line. I am a pee on a stick freak and always saw lines that weren't there, and he never saw them. I looked at it, and this time I couldn't see it! He kept going "What are you talking about, it's right there!" so I decided to take a FRER out from under the sink, and dipped it into my urine and waited the allotted time and put a box over it so I couldn't peak. when the time was up and before I looked at the test I just knew.. I knew I was pregnant, I flipped the box off of it, picked it up and there it was! A beautiful faint pink line! My BFP!!! I didn't have to squint to see it, or hold it to the light or, hold it this way or that way, it was there, and I cried so hard.

My first reaction was to become worried because of my previous miscarriage, but I decided no.. I am going to celebrate this baby, I am going to love this baby so much, regardless of any outcome, and I am going to choose to be happy every day!

Prayers and baby dust to all you TTCers out there! It can happen! I can't believe it happened to me! <3
