2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9 at 9dpo

2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9, BFP at 9 dpo.

This is my 2nd time being able to post my bfp on this site. The first time around we had been ttc for 4 years, and this was 2 years ago. I ended up pg on first round of clomid, but sadly ended up miscarrying at 11 weeks. That time around I didn't have any symptoms or signs that I was pregnant at all! This time around is VERY different!

I got a positive opk on cd 14 and know I ovulated on cd 15 due to the fun ovulation cramping that clomid induces. We used preseed each time we bd and are able to bd 13,14,15 and 16.

1dpo-5dpo: Nothing.
6dpo: Cramping, just like af! Tender bbs and had that 'let down' feeling in them.
7dpo: Right sided tight pinching feeling, near ovaries. Very tender bbs.
8dpo: Zingy feeling in bbs that radiated to my armpits. Very sharp stab feeling through to my vajayjay..very odd feeling! Constipated.
9dpo: Having to pee ALOT, like every 15 minutes. Tender bbs. Tight cramping right side. Let down feeling again. Faint positive at 530 pm
10dpo: Very positive on Frer! Still sore bbs. Crampy like af is going to show any moment! Very very hungry!!

I am praying this little one sticks!! It's been 6 years now that we have been trying for our last baby and this is the final try, I can't go through another loss. So, any prayers our way would be appreciated. Good luck ladies and I pray you all get your bfp soon! Xoxo

BFP after two chemical pregnancies

Hello :)

I did wait until 12 weeks to announce it on this website (by fear of something happening in the meantime!).
Anyways On October and December 2015 i had chemical pregnancies. I did not know why this happened since i have a healthy 15 months old son that was a complete surprise! I really thought at some points i had a real problem and would have lots of problems to conceive baby 2.
Well on Jan 2016 i had my 3rd BFP and i had ZERO SYMPTOMS. Seriously i was completely listening to my body and looking for signs of CM or boobs getting painful etc... NOTHING. The only thing that happened is around 12 dpo i had a very sharp pain in my uterus and thought ( maybe implentation?) but again, no IB and i had all these "symptoms" with my chemicals in the previous months.

The only thing i did different in January i to track my ovulation. once i saw EWCM (for the first time actually) i jumped into bed with dh !! i had a bit of a sharp pain two days after positive opk on my left ovary that lasted for 30 minutes but again i had this in the previous months so i did not think of it.

No doctors wanted to prescribe progesterone to me because its no custom to do in my country ( i live in the Netherlands) so i ate one or two banana a day with a lot of seeds and nuts along with proteines since i had the second chemical pregnancy. we were in the middle of christmas holidays and NYE so i did not cut on the drinks and did not think otherwise. (we did not try for this long for me to change my diet drastically but anyways im not a heavy drinker)

So my advise to all mamas that are suffering from multiple miscarriages / chemicals please try not to only blame yourself. I am now 12 weeks pregnant and just saw the baby this morning :) I have to say i had a hard time believing this one would stick as i did not even have MS (until 8 weeks where it was quite brutal!) i still barely feel pregnant and feel more or less good. The only difference is this time i look already 20 weeks pregnant and everyone is congratulating me since 8 weeks!!

Good luck to all mamas, don't give up and baby dust to all of you :)

Surprise BFP Already 3 1/2 Months Pregnant with Rainbow Baby!!

This is going to be a long post! We are still in shock that God has answered our prayers to be parents as we decided to stop TTC and trust in his plan for us. As soon as we surrendered to him and trusted in him He gave us our biggest blessing! God is faithful, trust in HIS timing!

Our story begins like most women. We began TTC in September 2014 with the hopes of getting pregnant ASAP. When it didn't happen immediately I tried not to stress too bad. My cycles were very short and by March 2015 I was beginning to think something wasn't right with my body. My dr took some blood work and I was diagnosed with PCOS with high testosterone levels and I was most likely not ovulating on my own. The diagnosis really stung but I had a lot of hope in the 50 mg Clomid she prescribed for us. March 13th I got my period and went in 21 days later for a progesterone check. My progesterone was 37 and we found out April 10th that I was indeed 4 weeks pregnant. We were amazed the Clomid worked the first round. My DH and I were so excited and we told close friends and family. We began to start thinking of what it would be like to have a baby and be parents. The planning had already began!! However, the day of April 24th will forever be etched in my mind as it was the day I began to miscarry our baby at 6 weeks 1 day. It was devastating, and at the time I spent most days being angry and bitter at God for taking away our child. After that I determined I could get pregnant immediately again without God, and after my period returned in June we started the second round of Clomid. BFN. Third round BFN. Fourth round BFN. By October I could feel God was screaming at me to just listen to him but I ignored him once again. I was still trying to work through the grief of loosing my baby and TTC was my outlet to ignore the pain. I wanted to try Femara in October as I was just convinced my body was used to Clomid by now. By this point I wasn't even getting a natural period and had to be induced on Provera. I felt so broken as a woman. And to top it off my DH got a sperm analysis and had only 11 million sperm count. I got my progesterone checked after the first round of Femara and I didn't ovulate. This was rock bottom for me. Why God? Why didn't you want us to be parents? Why us? The pregnancy Facebook announcements seemed so cruel.

Then something hit me like a ton of bricks. I finally let God in and began listening to him. I started to surrender everything to him. All of my own plans for motherhood, my worries, fears, etc. It was not easy at first. He was telling me this entire time to TRUST him and his plan in our lives. He started by canceling our next doctor's appointment scheduled for November 23rd. The receptionist called and told me that I was scheduled on accident for that week and since it was thanksgiving that week they were only seeing OB patients. I could have rescheduled but I knew this was Gods first sign for us. I amazingly got a natural period on November 21st. However, December 9th I started "spotting" for 9 days straight. I was convinced my hormones were messed up from the drugs. I continued to pray for strength and grieved our baby's due date in December. In January we began visiting a church. Every week the preacher would talk about the power of prayer and how important it is to hold on to your faith even when you don't feel like God is listening. We held on tight. This was so hard for me, as I felt like I failed him daily. I STILL wanted to be pregnant! January came and went with no period. The first week of February I took 5 days of Provera I had left and then realized I had momentarily stopped listening to God. I didn't continue with the Provera after I felt God telling me this was not his plan. Usually when I would take Provera I would get my period on day 3 of the pill but when nothing happened I thought it was really odd.

February came and I continued to pray for strength daily and trusted more and more in Gods plan for us. I would tell him daily that even though I would give anything to be pregnant, he's plan is far greater than anything I could understand. Most people are probably wondering why didn't you take a pregnancy test if you weren't getting a period? Some woman can relate to the absolute devastation of seeing a negative pregnant test over and over again, and since I knew what it was like to be pregnant already, I hadn't had any symptoms and therefore no need to test! Lol The Sunday before we found out we were expecting, the preacher at church preached about how he felt God was speaking to someone there. He said God was telling someone that it was going to be the end of their night season and their morning would be coming soon. This gives me chills thinking about this.

BFP after a chemical pregnancy and TTC for about a year.

Hi everyone!! I promised myself that I will share my story if I ever get pregnant. I have been reading the stories here while on my TTC journey :)

After trying for about a year, with a chemical, I finally got my BFP :)
Here's the breakdown -
1DPO - Nothing
2DPO - Nothing
3DPO - Nothing
4DPO - very mild cramps on the left side of ovary
5DPO - very mild cramps on the left side of ovary
6DPO - Mild cramps on left side of ovary and below belly button area
7DPO - Intense cramps on left side of ovary, I was lying down when the sharp pain came which make me jolted up. DH and my mum saw that I was in pain and asked if I'm ok but I told them I am fine. I guess that was implantation :)
8DPO - The pain decreased but still there, also difficult for me to lift up my left leg. I had to lie down on my bed when wearing my pants :(
9DPO - Pain is still there but mild
10DPO - mild pain at the same area plus sore nipples
11DPO - no more pain but sore nipples remains
12DPO - Sore nipples (Tested but BFN)
13DPO - Sore nipples (Tested but BFN)
14DPO - Sore nipples, I really felt like AF is coming so I Tested and came up with a very, very faint line - not satisfied though coz that may be evap lines.
15DPO - AF didnt came, I'm very regular. Sore Nipples (Tested with BFP!!!)
16DPO - Sore Nipples (Tested with BFP!!!)

Let me share with you what we did just in case this may be helpful to you guys. (SORRY IF TMI)
3 days before Ovulation we BD. (Dont need to lift your legs high up, just place a pillow on your bum for about 30mins or sleep through it)
2 day before Ovulation we BD. (The same steps as above)
1 day before Ovulation we BD. (The same steps as above)
O day we BD. (The same steps as above)
1DPO we BD. (The same steps as above)

I thought I was out at 12DPO bcoz sore nipples were the signs that my AF is coming but this time, the sore nipples are more painful as compared to AF signs.

I pray for everyone who is TTCing and reading this story that you will all get BFP!
Baby Dusts to all!!

BFP after 2 miscarriages and 17 months TTC

This is for all of the momma's and momma's to be out there who have suffered losses and feel like it's taking forever to conceive again. I faithfully read the bfp stories that other ladies had shared every day for the 17 months I was TTC. This site gave me hope when I lost all hope, it was here for me and understood what I was going through when no one IRL could. Now it's my turn to give back bc I'm finally pregnant with a perfectly healthy and active baby that's kicking me right now. I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and I wanted to wait until after my 20 week anomaly scan to share my BFP story so everyone reading knows this bfp resulted in a baby. That was something I always wondered while reading the bfp stories.

I'm 26 and DH is 29 and we began TTC when I was 24 and him 27. I charted my bbt using fertility friend and I read TCOYF other then that we didn't do anything special.

I stopped the nuva ring may 2014 (my hormones were a mess for a year after I stopped BC. I also suffered many side effects from all forms of BC and I personally believe that my miscarriages were caused from being on BC from the age of 14.)

We conceived on our third month trying and sadly miscarried at 6 weeks. After my miscarriage I didn't ovulate for 5 months.

On the 6th month after mc I finally ovulated and I conceived that cycle Jan 2015. Sadly I miscarried again at 6 weeks.

I know a lot ppl say that the line on the test doesn't mean anything but for me it did. With both of my MC I had very faint lines on FRER that barely got darker. I also never got more then 1-2 weeks pregnant on clearblue digi weeks indicator. My first MC I had zero symptoms except bleeding after sex before bfp. My second MC the only symptom I had was sore nipples that abrubtly stopped hurting before I miscarried. I'm not sharing any of this to scare anyone I'm just sharing what happened to me.

After my second MC I only had 2 anovulatory cycles. My cycles at first were irregular and as they started to regulate my period went from being 7 days to a wonderful 4 days. Just before I conceived my rainbow my cycles averaged 26 days with a 4 day period and my leutal phase varied from 12 to 14 days.

We were TTC 9 months after the second MC and a total of 17 months since our TTC journey began. By that point my dh and I started discussing fertility testing, we weren't purposefully trying anymore, and we decided to focus on other things. We were planning our move across Canada to be close to our family again, and focused on our future together. I decided to take a break from charting because it had become stressful. I still watched my cm though. I had a very bad poas addiction and I continued to test every cycle with 3 or more FRER. I tried using cheapies but I would just talk myself into believing they were wrong and buy FRER anyways.

I truly believe in God's timing. We conceived our rainbow Oct 2015 9 months after our second MC. On Oct 25 my dh proposed and based off of my cm that's when I suspect I ovulated. My dating ultrasound lined up with that date as well.

My BFP cycle I 100% believed I was NOT pregnant. Nothing made me think I was pregnant in fact I thought I was in for a terrible period. I'm sorry I wasn't tracking symptoms by dpo but here is what I experienced.
-terrible cramps that were no different then my usual premenstrual cramps. I kept thinking any day my period is going to start.
- my boobs hurt so bad and felt very heavy
- I had my usual creamy premenstrual cm
- I was more emotional then usual
- I did experience a couple mild headaches
- I was more tired then usual

But again these were all symptoms I would get before my period. Looking back I tested on 10dpo. On the day I tested I thought for sure it would be a stark white negative. I didn't feel pregnant and I only tested bc I tested every month. I bought frer before going into work and I poas in my work bathroom. I put the test on the sink while I went about my business and washed my hands. My goodness was I shocked when I finally looked down and seen that beautiful pink line. I seriously could not believe it. It wasn't a solid line but it wasn't a squinter either, that line was definitely there. From that point on I poas 10 more times every other day and my line got progressively darker. My line beat the test line on 18 dro. CB digi said 2-3 on 18 dpo and on 21 dpo it said 3+. When I seen that 3+ pop up on the screen I fell to my knees crying and I thanked God for blessing me with this baby. My baby is due July 12th 2016 and I can't wait to meet him or her.

I pray that each and everyone of you will get your your much longed for bfp and have your beautiful & healthy babies in your arms!

BFP Still Can't Believe it!

Hi girls!!
This is my first post, You have all helped me so much through many TTW so now that I have my BFP i want to share with you and help you guys figure it all out! I thought there was no way this was my month we only got to BD one day this whole month which was 4 days before ovulation! I still can't believe BFP is here, so any of you that are disheartened and worried about missing out on the right time, don't worry, anything can happen!!! I'm 29, have 1 DD and have had 1 chemical pregnancy and 2 m/c at 12 weeks and 6 weeks. I'm praying this is a sticky bean! So here goes with my dpo..

1-3dpo no symptoms although I'm wondering why my bbs havent got sore yet.. they are always so painful right after Oday until a few days before af.

4dpo- Lovely relaxing day but I am exhausted! Fell asleep by 8pm in front of the TV.

5dpo- STARVING can not eat enough food. Very emotional and extremely bloated, I'm never bloated like this... mmm.

6dpo- still Starving, Runny Nose.. maybe it's my allergies and my sisters dog over the weekend. Bloat still here.

7dpo- THIRSTY like 4 liters of water later, I still want more, super hungry, runny nose, nipps very sore. Bloat still here.

8dpo- hungry, thirsty and my nose is still running. Sore bbs, some very mild cramping. What's this?! Lotion like cm? I'm normally dry until af..

9dpo- more lotion cm, weird tight cramping, not as hungry or thirsty or bloated.. I'm sleeping like baby these days 10pm every night right through! Usually I suffer from regular bouts of insomnia. Sleeping is awesome.

10dpo- Peeing alot today at work. Do I 'feel' pregnant?! No don't be stupid.. Should I test?! NO! It's too early, concentrate on your work. Steady Thin cm all day, little nausea. Bloat is back.

11dpo- Peeing lots, lotion cm, thirsty, tired. Out for cocktails (because I'm being normal until af haha) I can't even better bothered, ready to go home after 2 drinks, all I can think about is how HUNGRY I am and what I'll make to eat when I'm home!

12dpo- bbs very sore today. Lotion like cm. Sharp feelings inutero ouch! What is that??

13dpo- AF due! Right side cramping. Lots of lower back pain and bloating in the evening *cry* possibly dehydrated from spin class this morning? Took paracetamol! I think af is gonna come tomorrow, now dry cm, very sharp pain at top of uterus maybe is a chemical pregnancy and it's pulling away? That was really sore.. (maybe I'm just letting my previous m/c get to my head.) I have 2 know what's happening. Will test tomorrow with ic if no af.

14dpo- No af despite all that horrible cramping. Woke up feeling sick and loose bm (sorry TMI) maybe that's what all the cramping was about. Very mild cramping so far trying to drink lots of water.

Very faint BFP!!!!!!! on ic.. Need to get FRER to confirm! Will retest with FRER 16dpo hopefully I'll get a darker line and no bleeding..

Still Can't believe it!!!
Big give aways for me were my bbs not getting sore after O, more cm than usual, extreme hunger and lots of cramping with no spotting or af the next day.

BFP three months after MMC...praying third time's the charm!

Please say a little prayer for me to have a sticky bean this time! In November I had a blighted ovum as seen on my 7 week US and had a D&E one week later. This was my second failed pregnancy (first one ended in June after Trisomy 18 diagnosis). So this is my third pregnancy in 11 months. All bloodwork and genetic testing for me and DH are negative so it's apparently just "bad luck". My OB thought it wouldn't hurt to try baby aspirin and progesterone, which I tried last cycle but my body couldn't tolerate them (diarrhea with aspirin, huge headache and fatigue with progesterone). So this cycle I didn't use any of those, just my regular regimen of prenatal, EPO (for fertile CM), vitamin D, B6 and fish oil tabs daily.

CD12 : +OPK in am, BD that night (Watery CM). OPK negative later that evening
CD13/ ovulation day: BD in am (EWCM)***
POD1-2: nothing
POD3: sore throat and earache. I always feel like I'm coming down with something when pregnant. Also, my uterus felt tight like something was going on down there.
POD4: headache, "fuzzy" feeling that felt exactly the same as when I was taking progesterone pill last month. Mild uterine cramping, more sharp-feeling than AF pains.
POD5: heartburn. Woke up to 30 second sharp cramping
POD6: heartburn, mild lower back pain
POD7: tossing and turning during sleep, which I still am doing nightly ,copious creamy white discharge, BFN on Wondfo (no idea why I POAS so early)
POD8: light brown creamy discharge (I believe now implantation bleed) , BFN
POD9: mild intermittent cramping (which I still have to this day)
POD10: extremely light second line on Wondfo, my husband claimed he couldn't see anything. Later that night very clear BFP on FRER.
POD12: very clear BFP on Wondfo now.

***My tip for conceiving is make sure you have fertile CM! In my previous pregnancies I've only gotten pregnant on the months I had EWCM and I had to work really hard to achieve that with EPO and lots of water!!

Please pray for me, Thanks ladies and baby dust :)

For all of us TTC who have been told "just relax!"

This post is dedicated to all of us who have wanted to punch someone in the face when they told us to "just relax" and we would get pregnant.

I literally had everything go wrong, had a super stressful month, and got my BFP.

My hubby and I have been trying since 2011. That's five long years if you are counting at home. Two years of trying (my hubby travels a lot for work, we gave it extra time), an unexplained infertility diagnosis, two more years of "not trying" and "just relaxing" and three medicated IUI's. Our first IUI resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I was so traumatized that I waited a year before trying one again. Our second IUI I got massages, took things easy, went to see a Chiropractor, and did yoga daily. BFN.

This last month on the day I was supposed to go into my RE's for my day three ultrasound I felt like I had been runover by a truck. Was this allergies or a cold? MY RE told me to come in anyway. I live in Central Texas and have been braving a bout of Cedar Fever (think a Cold that lasts for several weeks until Cedar Pollen levels go down). I lost my voice, had fatigue, coughing, phlegm, you name it. To make things better, in 11 years of being a real estate agent, I had my busiest January EVER. I was working 7 days a week, handling lots of clients, and FLIPPING STRESSED. Between the work, fertility drugs, and cedar fever alone I became very unpleasant for my hubby to be around.

THEN, my husband gets a call about an entire work project being shutdown. This results in him leaving his job and starting a new business just about a year ahead of schedule and one week before our IUI. I'm covering as much as I can with my job, I feel like crap, and now the breadwinner of our family has just started a brand new business. Awesome. We were so busy and I was just trying to SURVIVE. I didn't even have much time to worry about our fertility treatment this month. I was the girl in her RE's office working on my laptop before my appointment. After our IUI, I ate lunch and was back to work with meeting clients immediately. I didn't really have a choice.

I was on Clomid, Gonal-F, and had a trigger shot. This was the first time we used a fresh sample for hubby and his counts were lower than they had been in the past. I don't remember motility, but his counts were about 13 million. I had two follicles mature and a small one that was a maybe.

I had no symptoms that were different from my normal cycle until last week. With our chemical pregnancy I noticed a few days before our BFP, I would wake up every night between 1-3 AM. I started doing this again. However, when I get stressed and busy with my job I tend not to sleep very well. I wasn't sure if I wasn't sleeping due to stress or hormones. I also noticed no spotting. I typically can spot anywhere from 3-7 days before my period starts. Even when I had my chemical. To this day (15DPIUI) I have had no spotting whatsoever, except for right after our IUI. I did have some cramping on and off during the 2WW which isn't abnormal for me. Part of the problem with being on fertility drugs is that you don't know what is the drugs and what are early pregnancy symptoms. I finally broke down and tested 12DPIUI because my boobs were hurting more than normal (but they normally are full and achy at this point in my cycle). To my surprise, it was a BFP. I had my betas today and it came back at 156. We go back for more blood tests on Wednesday to see if numbers are rising. I'm cautiously optimistic. We've never gotten this far before!!

So yeah, you can be stressed as hell and still get a BFP.

BFP on clomid

I got my BFP on 12th of January. I have stalked this site for my tww , and thought of writing my story when I do get my BFP but only when I cross the 12 weeks mark, as I had an m/c(BO) at 6 weeks last July. Unfortunately, I had second m/c , this time @8 weeks and this too turned out to be BO. But still I know how we try to make out the meaning of every little twitch and pain while in TWW so here are my symptoms. I wish every women out there a successful and healthy pregnancy and no one should go through what I had to:

1-6DPO: nothing, slightly heavy abdomen just like any other cycle.
7dpo: slight fatigue and nothing else
8dpo: some pinching pain on the left side, fatigue
9dpo: sleepless at night, drinking lots of water and several trips to bathroom.
10dpo: b**bs look bigger and tighter (sorry TMI), still sleepless at night
11dpo: sleepy all day and very thirsty, very little sleep at night.
12dpo: couldn't wait . tested at night, very faint positive after 3-4 mintues.
14:dpo : BFP !! bold and beautiful

My main symptoms both the times were change size and feel of breasts, change in sleeping pattern, thirsty and getting up to pee in the middle of the nite. Breast tenderness started around 16-17dpo.
