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! WE HAD COMPLETELY LET GO AND THAT'S WHEN IT HAPPENED! I was 5 days late when we came back and I didn't want to test because... we ALL KNOW how nerve wrecking that can be. I was afraid to have my hopes up a little just to see a stark white test. I broke down and tested on March 1st (6 days late) and the test was positive before I could even set it on the counter!!

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!

I was wiping down a table, when suddenly I felt this sharp pain in my finger - like I had glass in it or something, but there was nothing. I stuck it in ice and it suddenly stopped. I thought it was a little swollen, then I forgot about it. Later in the day I suddenly noticed that my finger was turning purple, but just between my last two knuckles (on my ring finger).

Pregnant naturally after failed IVF at 39 yrs old

Hello everyone. Finally got my BFP!! Diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We have been trying 2.5 years which included 7 cycles of Femara (one miscarriage), 3 failed IUIs, 2 failed IVFs all costing well over $25,000 total...and we got pregnant naturally this cycle! I am 39 years old, baby will be due after I turn 40. What I did different: 1. Quit my stressful job. 2. Added maca root everyday and evening primrose oil from CD 1 to ovulation. This really increased my fertile cervical mucous. 3. Did yoga everyday and tried to remain stress-free and positive. My diet stayed the same, but wanted to mention no sugar and relatively healthy with a lot of vegetables, healthy fats and lean meats. Water only to drink besides a cup of coffee in the morning. Ovulated CD 14 (positive opk on CD 13). We BD'd CD 12, 13, 14, 15 Everything felt different, like I had a very strong ovulation with high progesterone. 1 dpo - 8 dpo: SOOOOO hungry! I ate way more than normal. Constipated, tired, greasy hair, some acid reflux, slight bloody nose a few days, bloated 9 dpo - diarrhea, temporarily nauseous in the p.m., no more appetite (which is still the case), slight insomnia 10 dpo - tested - BFN. Tired, severe hot flash that lasted 10 minutes. Also, my boobs don't hurt at all (which on normal cycles they do since I have fibro-cystic breasts), slight insomnia. 11 dpo - tested - BFP - faint line on a FRER (6 days sooner kind)! Still tired, slight insomnia, no appetite, boobs do not hurt, slight cramping (felt more like pressure), bloating 12 dpo - line is darker, definitely a BFP, same symptoms as 11 dpo, took a 1.5 hour nap which I never do, my resting heart rate on fitbit is slowly increasing, 5 minute hot flash in the afternoon. Hope this bean sticks!! Goodluck ladies!

BFP after MC last year!

Hi everyone, I had an early miscarriage last year where I started bleeding and cramping right in the middle of a friend's wedding we'd travelled to in Malaysia - traumatic was an understatement. I'm feeling really positive this time and hoping this one sticks. I'm just shy of 5 weeks now and it feels very different - way more symptoms and no bleeding at all so far. I know the 2ww can play havoc with your brain! So I hope this helps some of you ladies. We BD (baby dance (sex)) on CD (cycle day) 4,6,8,10, 11, 13, 15. Positive opk evening of CD (cycle day) 14. 1dpo - creamy cm, nothing much 2dpo - feel good, high sex drive, appetite up but want healthy food, v v tired, cold. 3dpo- tired, hungry. 4dpo - sharp little stabbing pains in uterus in morning. 5dpo - need to go to the loo way more, jelly like cm, runny nose, bumpy skin on face,hungry, cried at tv show. 6 dpo- v v tired when waking up, vivid dreams, slight pinching in lower right abdomen, creamy cm, cramps, gassy, need to go to the loo lots, v bloated, emotional, cried at tv show, cold and shivery. 7dpo (implantation?) - v sharp twinges overnight, v gassy, hot, couldn't sleep, woke up starving, burping (weird for me), almost sick this morn, napped for 3 hours (v unlike me), cold and shivery, need to wee lots, generally felt quite ill. 8dpo - nipples a bit sore, gassy, bloated, need to wee lots, vivid dreams, couldn't stomach wine (also unlike me...), hated the smell of cigarettes when I walked past someone smoking it made me gag, boiling at night. 9dpo - stomach rumbling at 6am and had to have some toast and then go back to bed, burpy, v creamy cm, need to wee lots, vivid deeams and very hot last night, dreamt of bfp, cervix has now gone high soft and closed, bloated, sore boobs, twinge of deep pain around lunchtime, tired, v hot at night. 10dpo - tired, sore boobs. Was very busy all day so didn't note many symptoms. 11dpo - tired and sore boobs. Very faint BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) on ic!!!!! 12dpo - felt a bit sick, tired in morning, having to wee lots in night and day, sore boobs, darker nipples, another positive ic and CB digital (1-2 weeks) in morn, positive on FRER in pm 13dpo - woke up feeling sick, darker on FRER darker on ic, cramps. 14dpo - cramps, tired, sore boobs 15dpi - severe cramps, tired 16dpo - severe cramps 16 - bad cramps, tired 17 dpo - such a bad cold feel like death, lots creamy cm since bfp (increased a lot after 14dpo), cramps. 18dpo - FRER and ic tests gradually getting darker, v bad cramps in morning. 19dpo - very nauseous this morning, hungry, ic tests finally getting quite dark. CB digital still says 'pregnant', lots of white creamy cm. For me the major symptoms this time were - the cramping (it felt like quick, sharp pinching before bfp and now it's like growing pains in my uterus - mainly in the evenings), lots of creamy cm, gassy, needing the loo more, cervix didn't drop and open as it usually does before AF (Aunt Flo - menstruation/period) - it went hardish and closed around 14dpo and now at 19dpo is high soft and closed. I never had any implantation bleeding. With my chemical, I also had a bfp at 11dpo but it was very faint and gradually faded away by 14dpo. With this one, the lines are strong and getting darker. Never as dark as control line but def increasing. Also, with my chemical my only symptom was burning nibbles for 2 days and literally nothing else. This time I haven't had that at all. They do say every pregnancy is different! I hope this helps someone and baby dust to you all! Keep your fingers crossed for a sticky bean for me xxx

Third time's the charm?

I'm sharing my story because I'm a nervous wreck inside. I've had two previous miscarriages. One at 8 1/2 weeks and one at 4 weeks. My husband and I believe that it's best to share with friends and family (outside of my parents of course, they're my rocks) once we know everything is okay. Today I got my BFP X's four after several months of painful TWWs and "Is that a line? I think it's a line!". So here we go! CD 16- EWCM - Did the deed - believe CD 17- Did the deed again for fun- Counting as O day. DPO 1-2- Nothing DPO 3. - Light cramping DPO 4- Mirgraine with vomiting ( threw up a very delicious and expensive lunch) DPO 5- Residual headache DPO 6- Nothing DPO 7-8 - Very moody. Lost it when my 2 yr old was acting up. I'm usually very very patient. DPO 9 - Gassy, moody ,boobs hurt, tired. Got very very hungry around 9pm. Had eaten just 4 hrs ago. Not normal for me. DPO 10 - Another migraine with nausea. Strong cramp on L. Side about 6:30am. Gassy. - hpt DPO 11 - Swollen gums on L. Side of mouth. DPO 12 - Very moody again but only at my husband. The site of him made me so angry not to mention his voice. He even asked me if my "eggo was preggo" because that's how I feel everytime I get pregnant. -hpt DPO 13 - Mild cramping. Feel like period is going to start. DPO 14 - Cramping. Checked cervix because I check regularly. Cervix med and med but OS opening very closed but tinge of pinkish blood. Thinking period is going to start but strange because I can usually get finger in OS when period is about to start ( I don't dare though). DPO 15 - No blood, light headache. Husband wanted to have some drinks for super bowl but said I better check. Expected period next day. + Hpts. Two on FR pink dye and 2 on FR blue dye. Those looking for info on cervix checking and pregnancy - What I've noticed from several months of checking my cervix is that the position and texture changes hour by hour, day by day, and even month by month. The thing that tipped me off was knowing if my OS is open or closed. Right now it is tightly closed for me. *** I always keep my nails trimmed and my hands washed very well before touching my cervix.

BFP 3 months after miscarriage

It's been a longer than wanted wait....and I'm still leary about another miscarrage of course (but hopeful too!) but here is my story. I found these stories to be very helpful to pass the time in my 2WW so I thought I would share too :) My DH and I concevied our first baby in Sept 2017 and I miscarried in Oct 2017. It was devasting on many accounts (I think too because so surprising! For some reason, I didn't even consider miscarriage as a possibility. My mom and sister never had any trouble so this added to my thinking of course. Our Dr. advised us to wait another full cycle with a period to flush out my system before trying again. In Dec 2017 I then ovulated and we did BD almost every day but AF came...I honestly think I was too stressed to conceive in Dec. as I was still depressed from the misscarriage and to top it off heard 3 close family/friends just announced they were pregnant and were due around the time I was suppose to be. In Jan 2018, I tried to de-stress and avoided any situation that would trigger stress in me. I also fully gave up caffeine and refined sugars (white bread, candy, chips, etc.) and ate a lot of pineapple smoothies (I heard it helps lower inflammaton and increases chance of successful implantation so I gave it a shot - what the heck!). In Jan. 2018 I ovulated earlier than expected CD 15 as opposed to CD 18 the month before with a very regular 30 day cycle each month. Here is my 2WW symtpoms leading to a BFP.... CD 14 - peak fertility on clear blue monitor. EWCM. Some insomnia and L pelvic pain. BD with DH. CD 15 - day of ovulation. BD with DH x2. Appetite increase (could be from BD? haha) 1DPO- sl cramps. BD. Really vivid dreams. I could remember every crazy detail when I woke up. 2DPO- Appetite increase. BD. Vivid dreams again. 3DPO - Frequent urination, creamy cervical mucous, sl tender breasts. Vivid dreams 4DPO - Cream cervical mucous again. Hot flahses 5DPO - Tender breasts (this was the key symptom for me as usually this does not occur until 1-2 days before AF) 6DPO- Tender breasts. Congested in am (think I am getting a cold - gone by lunch). Vivid dreams. 7DPO - Creamy CM again (eugh!) I usually get this before AF so I'm getting annoyed. Cold symptoms continued (could actually have a cold at this point?). Tender breasts still. 8DPO - Tired! Tender breasts. No CM today. Was at a party at our neighbours this night and I was so exhuasted that I went home before DH. We had chilli for dinner at the party but when I went home I was still hungry so made some sweet potatoes/broccoli as second dinner! Around 11pm had terrible cramps with (tmi alert!) dirrahea for at least an hour. DH convinced I am pregnant as last time I was pregnant has this same kind of diarrhea. 9 DPO - Tender breats, headache, cold symptoms in am. Frusterated about news at work. Cranky with DH 10 DPO - Didn't take a preg test in am because saw creamy CM - but not a ton of it. Cold symptoms in am. Sl cramping throught day. Tired. Tender breasts. Middle of the night woke up at 1:15am - I was sweating and sheets were all wet. Could be due to cold? I went to bathroom and thought what the heck I'll do a FRER. To my surprise, I got to wake my DH with the BFP! For me the definite signs were the tender breasts and the diarrhea. I am now 13 DPO and constipation has started now, breasts are still sore to touch/feel full, and I'm tired throughout the day and insomnia at night. I have a Dr. Appnt next week so I hope all goes well! Hope this was helpful! Try to de-stress..I think that is what helped with this cycl. GL! ox

In Shock! BFP @ 10DPO

I apologize in advance, this is going to be a long post. All of these BFP stories have gotten me through many TWWs so I had to pay it back! DH and I have one DS (11y/o) and have been TTC #2 for 15 months. We got a BFP in June 2017 which ended in miscarriage at 7w5d. We took a couple months off to recoup and started TTC again in October. My cycles are pretty regular 30-32 days with ovulation on CD 16/17. I use the Ovia App and CM to track ovulation, and this is the second month that I have also been tracking my BBT. I have been taking prenatal vitamins throughout the whole TTC journey, and started a regular workout schedule about 3 months ago (I am average weight but I wasn't very healthy/active). DH and I did the BD every other day from CD 10 - CD 20 to make sure we covered every possible fertile day. Also, I ate pineapple core everyday from O Day to today (10DPO). Iv'e read online that eating pineapple core helps with implantation and I figured it couldn't hurt to try, maybe it helped! This TWW has not been much different from all the others but here are my symptoms by DPO: CD 17- O Day - BD - EWCM - Tingling sensation in bbs 1DPO - NYE - No symptoms 2DPO - BD - White/creamy/stretchy CM - Gassy 3DPO - Watery CM - Tired at work - Sore bbs at the gym during workout 4DPO - Watery CM - Twinges in abdominal area when standing up too fast - Strange warm feeling in my stomach (IDK how else to explain it, it just felt warm) 5DPO - Creamy/wet CM, constant wet feeling - Random twinges of pain in bbs throughout the day - Pain on right side of lower abdomen - Weird warm feeling in stomach again - Dizzy/lightheaded in PM, lasted a few minutes 6DPO - White/creamy/thicker CM - Stuffy nose/Cold symptoms when waking but gone before I got to work - Dull ache in lower abdomen - Dizzy/lightheaded in PM again 7DPO - BD - Creamy/white CM - nipple soreness 8DPO - CM disappeared - Nipple soreness - Gassy 9DPO - Still no CM, started feeling out this month - Dizzy/lightheaded during PM workout 10DPO - Creamy/stretchy/yellowish/snot-like CM (gross sorry!) - Woke up and felt dizzy/lightheaded when trying to get out of bed. (Being dizzy/lightheaded is not normal for me) - Remembered I had a 2 pack of FRER tests that I was saving for a time when AF was finally late! I normally don't test early because I HATE seeing BFN's, but the dizzy spells were really making me wonder so I took the test even though I knew it was too early. I was brushing my teeth and barely glanced at the test because I just knew it was going to be a BFN, but it was positive! It was a faint positive, but definitely positive, not even a squinter! Two Lines!! BFP @ 10DPO w/FMU on a FRER! I am still in total shock, it just doesn't feel real yet. I am going to tell DH when he gets home from work today. It is still very early but I am so happy! Fingers crossed for a sticky bean!! Good luck and baby dust to you all!
