Clomid BFP 10dpo!! God is Good.

It has been a long time waiting to write this story. It's a crazy one, but bear with me and I'll get to the good stuff :)
DH is 36 I'm 32. We've been together for 9 years and married for 5. We've always NTNP. After getting married, we decided to begin "trying". After a year of "trying" I went to my OB/GYN and asked him for help. My cycles are very regular, so we had DH SA (great) and then there was me. HSG test = all clear. On to Clomid. Now, around this time, someone prayed over me and told me I'd have not one but TWO children. I dreamed of being very early in my pregnancy, almost to the point that noone believed me. A doctor was hooking me up to machines and then I woke up. First round of Clomid=BFP. Around 7.5 weeks, I started spotting. I went to get an ultrasound at 8 weeks, no heartbeat. It was my dream. I was heartbroken. I was upset and angry with God for taking this away. I needed some time to recooperate, so I took a long year off and did some soul searching. I prayed more than I've ever prayed and seeked God with my whole heart. During that year, my sister who is very prophetic, told me I would be pregnant at the age of 32. That was two years away!! I continued to have faith anyway. In October of 2014, I had another dream. I dreamed that I was early pregnant again, and that a blonde lady told me " I know how to fix this." Fast forward to 33 weeks pregnant and I woke up. I knew it was time for us to try again. So, I took my last prescription of Clomid in December. NOTHING. In May, I went back to my OB/GYN and he started me back on Clomid 50 mg for three cycles. NOTHING. I didn't understand. Why was this not working? I prayed for healing.
In September at my three month checkup, my OB/GYN decided not to move me up to 100 mg (for the fear of multiples because I technically ovulate on my own) and had me do three more cycles of 50 mg. And then he would move me up to 100mg if that didn't work. I was furious and so upset!!
That night, I prayed and I cried out to God, "When?? When will this happen Father, I can't wait anymore!" He replied, "February".
After lots of prayer, I decided to call a Fertility Clinic and seek more help. On the day of my first appointment, my insurance had issues and I had to cancel. So, I decided to continue the Clomid.
Now, I have some co-workers that were seeing this Homeopathic/Spiritual Healing Doctor. I was curious. After lots of prayer, I felt I had to go. Here's where my story REALLY gets interesting. As I sat down with Barry, he asked me what was on my mind. I replied "well, infertility". He asked me how old DH and I were, our names, and if I'd ever been pregnant and what had happened. I told him of my loss at 8 weeks. He stared off for what seemed like an eternity before he finally said "Ok, your husband has stomach parasites. We can fix that easily and really clean up his sperm." Then to me he says "Now, I'm going to tell you something that is very scary, but I don't want you to be scared because we can fix this, ok?" I said "Ok....?" He says "You have two bloodclots that are very close to your heart, probably had them for 10 plus years, like 17 or 18 years old. Did you have dental work or braces at that age?" My heart sunk...."Yes" I replied. "I had a root canal at 17". He says "That's when they formed. They're causing your body to work too hard, thus preventing pregnancy from sticking. You're also highly anemic." I was so stunned at this point. Not only had DH NOT even been there at all, but he had told me that something was wrong with his stomach? DH had a colonoscopy two years ago and they couldn't find anything wrong!! Anemia? I give blood and my iron is always borderline. The Red Cross also had just recently called to ask if I would donate platelets because my count was so HIGH! I was just blown away. He then says " Now get this done, I see twins". I'm like "Excuse Me??????"
So, I had two months of vitamins/herbs and iron (blackstrap molasses ewww) to get started on. After two weeks, I felt like a new person! I had energy, I could breathe better!
It gets better.......
My OB/GYN is a guy, and while I'm sitting at Barry's store, I get a text that said he would be on extended medical leave until mid January!
So, I wait until December (knowing that I'm supposed to get bumped up to 100 mg Clomid in January) and I ask what I'm supposed to do. The nurse calls me back and says "We're sticking you with Dr. so and so and they want you monitored, so day 21 progesterone test, day 28 ultrasound and then we will bump you to 100 mg."
No lie, I hung up the phone, googled this new Dr. and my jaw hit the floor. SHE was BLONDE. What are the odds? My dream is coming to pass!!!!!

BFP @ 13dpo w/lupus, endometrosis, and unexplained 2ndary infertility-cycle 28

Hello Everyone. I Have been reading these posts since 2005 and they have helped me get through so many dark days. This story may be long. It was 2 years in the making.

In Nov 2014 I married my high school sweetheart. We have 5 children together. I stopped using the rhythm method immediately afterwards and thought if God wants me to have another baby, I will fall preg on my own. In July of 2015 I had a 5 week miscarriage. It broke my heart. I began to want another baby that summer and began ttcing. Fast forward to Jan 2016. I got another bfp that turned out to be a chemical because AF showed right at 13dpo.

Cd1 was Jan 9th. After 4 cycles of unprescribed clomid (oops) I began trying something more natural to conceive. I took black cohosh, evening primrose oil, vitex 500mg, prenatals, b6, and baby aspirin. The vitex made me O early. I usually O after cd 16. This month I O'd on cd11! After O I stopped taking evening primrose oil and black cohosh. I started noticing weird symptoms right away.

Jan 9-cd 1 AF
Jan 19-cd 10 Pos OPK-cp high wet and open-cm watery no ewcm-used preseed BD
Jan 20-cd 11 serious O cramps from the left side, cp still high soft open BD
jan 21-cd 12-1dpo noticed continued o pain
jan 22-cd 13-2dpo same as yest
Jan 23-cd 14-3dpo same
jan 24-cd 15-4dpo same
jan 25-cd 16-5dpo breast hurting, hi cp, thicker cm and more than usual
jan 26-cd 17-6dpo same
jan 27-cd 18-7dpo noticed darker veins on breasts and white glue like cm
jan 28-cd 19-8dpo bfn had a huge fight with DH, very emotional. Dont think this is my month
jan 29-cd 20-9dpo no test today, vivid dreams, very wet during bd?, slept 12 hours, emotional, bloated more clumpy cm
jan 30-cd 21-10dpo bfn same as yesterday but me and dh noticed a weird smell to my cm. Like I smell the hormones in it.
Jan 31-cd 22-11dpo bfn feeling very sad about prev losses. Gave up hope. Had a spiritual experience. After dreaming I was preg and died from the crossfire in a drive by shooting, I woke up and went to check on my children. While checking to make sure the front door was locked, I felt a hand grab mines. A long skinny adult hand that was cool to the touch. I ran to turn on the light and nobody was in the room with me. I was the only person awake in my home...
Feb 1-cd 23-12dpo-bfn (possibly a squinter) on frer. began to get AF cramps, temp dropped, backache, headache,cried myself to sleep.
Feb 2-cd 24-13dpo-woke to tons of drool on my pillow(did when I was preg). Im bloated, tired, crampy, back aching, and tearful. My breast are swollen and so is my belly. I can barely button my jeans. I was convinced that AF will be here today. After scouring the internet for bfp stories after 12dpo, I got the courage to take the last frer in the box. BFP!!!!!! Glory to my Heavenly Father who answered my prayers! I am due 10/12/2016 and I'm praying for a full term pregnancy and healthy baby! Baby #6! Bring it on!

Humbled and Excited

This will be my 3rd pregnancy at age 34. We got pregnant on 4th try with a healthy daughter in 2014. When I got pregnant with what I thought was my second it was on the "second" try. It took until 14dpo until I received a faint pregnancy line, which I thought was strange because I have a 24 day cycle. I was complaining about how I hated being pregnant and already was making myself miserable. I went in for my first ultra sound around 9 weeks, but I knew something was not right. I had no pregnancy symptoms. Boobs weren't sore, no cramping, no nausea, no "if I don't eat right now I will freak out on someone." My suspicions were confirmed at the ultra sound with a blight ovum. There was no baby:( Husband and I were very sad, but we had a small toddler to chase around so we just put one foot in front of the other. Dr recommended waiting 2 full cycles, but I read a ton of these blogs and researched and we decided to try right away but with no luck. I had 1 super heavy period after the D&C and then a light barely there period for the 2nd cycle. I guess Drs do know what they are talking about because cycle 3 was the winner! I wanted to share my back story to give hope to others who might have had a similar experience. Below are my symptoms leading up to my BFP, cycle 3 after a D&C.

Day of ovulation, used OPK- ECWM BD
1dpo - BD - cramps all in front, almost like bad gas pains for a few hours in the middle of the day.
2dpo - nothing to report
3dpo - sore boobs, dried up (in the last two cycles I had wetness after ovulation until period started)
4dpo - super tired, cramping - like period cramps
5dpo - bloody nose, cramps, constipation, boobs are crazy tingly, still dry
6dpo - bad cramps, boobs hurt, super hungry and by the end of the night can't really suck in my stomach
7dpo - feel cold all day, some wetness, super bloated and hungry
8dpo - bad cramps, bloated, look skinny in morning and then super bloated by the end of the day
9dpo - cramps, boobs tingle diarrhea, bloated and super gasey, feel dry
10dpo - cramps, diarrhea, blood in nose, boobs still hurt, dry
11dpo - painful gas, getting bad cramps like going to start my period, boobs itchy
12dpo - hot flashes all morning, felt wetness and kept checking for my period. Got out the EPT because I am never late and BFP!!!

I feel super humbled by my miscarriage experience. God willing this is my take home baby, I am approaching this pregnancy with nothing but joy and gratefulness. I am going to try and enjoy everyday and stay in the moment and celebrate the life that I am able to grow in my body.
This pregnancy already feels different because I am sick, super hungry, bloated, gasey, tired, boobs hurt. All the normal symptoms. The big difference in this cycle was the gas - I never get bad gas like that or cramps before I start my period. I also don't get implementation bleeding so all I had were the symptom tracker app and the! Good luck and baby dust to all!

BFP after 3rd round of IVF - No symptoms

We just got our second hCG results back. On 15 dpo (1/15/16) it was 176. Today is 17 dpo (1/17/16) and it came back at 407!

This is our third BFP in 8 months after 13 years of BPNs. The last two sadly ended in chemical pregnancies. This one feels a little different -in a very good way. I crossing everything I can to keep this baby healthy and growing.

Symptoms - I didn't have any symptoms that couldn't be attributed to progesterone.

9 dpo - I decided to start testing on because I had a ton of tests. I was amazed when my husband said that even he could see a line.
11 dpo (2:00 am) - We went up to the ER for UTI related pain in my kidney. We mentioned that we had just done a transfer so the doctor also did a pregnancy test which was positive. For some reason it felt more official coming from a doctor.
15 dpo - hCG 176
16 dpo - cramping every time I stand up or roll over in my sleep (normal stuff)
17 dpo - hCG 407!

BFP after 3months TTC!

So to start off I've had two early m/c both when I was younger. My DH and I have been ttc for 3months now. I quit smoking, drinking, drinking caffeine, and started taking a prenatal vitamin about 1mo before ttc. I got my BFP 2days ago, and am praying for a sticky bean!!! I used ClearBlue OPKs to monitor my fertile peaks, and PreSeed lubricant while trying. I know it might sound weird, but I think what did it this month was doing the "bicycle" with my legs in the air after BD for at LEAST 30min. Here are my symptoms I tracked with Ovia Period/Fertility tracker (an app on my smartphone that's free!)
1dpo-3dpo: Sore throat and gassy.
4dpo-BFP: cramps that ranged from twinges of pain, to pulling sensations, to downright breathtakingly painful.
6dpo-BFP: Sore BBs &EXTREMELY sensitive/in pain nips. Also, suddenly exhausted all the time. Napping, very odd for me.
12dpo-BFP: Bloating very badly. (Wearing my wedding ring became impossible) Woke up with acid reflux every morning, and suffered from it after every meal.
13dpo-BFP: Very sore lower back and hip joints, could barely walk at some times.
I got my BFP at 17dpo, which was the day before my period. My cycles are usually 35days long. I POAS the night before my period was scheduled to begin, and got a very solid BFP!!! Needless to say, I am terrified and ecstatic all at once! Pray for a sticky bean, and baby dust to everyone!!!

Stop Stressing, relax, and just let it happen.

I had three kids at a young age 16, 17, 19. At 21 I got my tubes tied because it was clear that things were not going to work out between my kids father and I. I vowed that if I ever had kids again that my husband would love me enough to understand why I tied my tubes and we would untie them if he truly wanted kids. (It seemed so simple) Flash forward 6 years later I meet the man of my dreams and he has no kids. We get married, untie tubes and after a year of trying NOTHING! Super depressed we tried and finally we stop trying and BOOM I was pregnant. One week later we miscarried. So with the hope and assurance that the surgery worked we tried again and nothing for another year and half. In October 2015 I started clomid. The first cycle failed. I was so livid on the next cycle I was like "F THIS! I don't want to try, I don't care anymore." I stopped researching every symptom. Wishing every pregnant women was me. Hoping that I was next. Jealous of my friends for being pregnant with ease. While I was stuck here trying for yet another year paying for infertility meds. I completely rejected the idea that I would even be pregnant. I would say 'NO SORE BOOBS NO PREGNANCY" So much so I didn't even test before it was time to see my doctor. I didn't realize how addicted I was to researching every symptom in every forum. It was actually depressing me. Not caring if I was or not was much less stressful. When I suppose to go get my meds for the third cycle of Clomid they made me take a test. She told me it was negative. While waiting for the my paper work the nurse calls the Dr. and she says "IT'S POSITIVE!!!" (I told them Dr.'s aren't suppose to lie to their patients. It's rude." lol) Blood test confirmed! I used Preeseed, Mucinex, Clomid and Estradol. On the last cycle and while BDing DH would tell me to just relax. I guessed it worked.


Don't be discourage if you don't have any symptoms. I would swear I had every symptom there was and every time it was Negative. I was a POASA. I would squint at every PT thinking there was a line. There never was.

I'm 5 weeks and 3 days now and I have sore boobs and I'm so incredibly hungry all the time.

Good Luck! Prayer works! Gory be to God he knew when the right time was.

Positive 5 days before period.

No symptoms at all. DH and I didn't even BD day of ovulation so I was sure I missed our chance. I bought more cheap test online for next cycle thinking I didn't have a chance. 10dpo came by though and a squinter came up on the test. I was so iffy though because it was THAT light. Next morning came and I took another test and I saw that pink line!!!! 5 days before my period was even due! So I got my bfp at 11dpo.
I seriously had NO symptoms besides sharp shooting pain down there at 8dpo. Im assuming that was implantation. Other than that I felt completely normal. Goes to show you, you can get a positive without having symptoms!
We had a miscarriage a few months ago so Im praying for a sticky bean! FX!

Taken by surprise..

I was taken by surprise when I got my BFP as I recently gave birth to a stillborn 10 weeks ago at 20 weeks and 3 days. I knew I wanted to get started right away as I know another baby will never replace my daughter but rather to give all my kids a new sibling.

After the lochia stopped, we waited until my menstraul came back to try again. This time around, I convinced myself to use OPKs and try to time this correctly.

So starting to test on cycle date 14 and thereafter, twice a day l I might add, I never received a smiley face so naturally was distraught and gave up and did the old fashioned way, everyday.

It wasn't until a couple days ago that I started feeling very naseous, and felt some breast tenderness but didn't think I could be as I they weren't the same symptoms as my pregnancy of my daughter.

I summed up enough courage to go buy a box to test. Walmart brand. After 2 minutes positive. I couldn't believe the results so I went back to the store and bought the clear blue. Positive.

I called up my GP right away and politely requested if I could get a blood serum test to confirm. He definitely obliged my request. Positive.

Now I'm sitting here with mixed feelings. I'm happy and deathly afraid at the same time. It's still early on. And to be honest, I'm deathly afraid to be attached to this pregnancy; however I am definitely estatic that were expecting again.

Tubal Reversal BFP!!! 2nd Cycle after MMC!!

WOW!!! What an end to the year, huh?? Little background: I'm 25, DH 25 as well. We have 2 living children. Tubal Ligation after the birth of our DD in 2011, TR 6/2014. Since then I have been pregnant 3 times: First time with my micro preemie Tinsley (she passed away at 5 weeks old after I had a terrible bout of Pre Eclampsia that had me in labor and delivery at only 26 weeks gestation *May She Rest In Peace*), next BFP in August of this year that unfortunately ended in a MMC (I kind of knew something was going to go wrong with that pregnancy because I got my BFP AFTER a normal AF...ya that wasn't going to be pretty), and lastly right now!!! Praying this is a sticky baby, and a TAKE HOME BABY as well. Here's what DH and I did:

-AF 12/3/15
-AF End 12/7/15
-DTD CD: 5,7,9,11
-Pos. OPK on CD 12, Strong pos. OPK on CD 13
-DTD CD: 12, 13,14,16 (SPERM MEETS EGG PLAN basically) O'd on CD 14
-1 DPO (CD 15)-- 7 DPO: Nothing I can recall honestly. I was trying not to spot symptoms and there were few to be honest. Maybe some cramping around 7 DP0 but nothing I can remember, and to be honest if I DID have any feelings here and there 9/10 they weren't pregnancy related because baby wouldn't have even implanted yet.
8/9 DPO- CRAMPS!!! A TON OF CRAMPS!!!! I MEAN SERIOUSLY CRAMPS!! I remember feeling tired too. Squinter on a FRER. Is this my BFP??
9/10 DPO: More cramping and feeling very sleepy. I take a nap today (I NEVER nap) and when I awoke I felt a wave of nausea that I continued to feel for the next few days, to be honest, especially after laying down. BFP!!! Faint line.
10DPO-13DPO (today): I probably tested with 10 FRERS. My lines were all over the place and had me thinking Chemical Pregnancy. I mean some days they looked like they weren't even changing darkness. I literally sat over the last few days thinking AF was going to come when she was due or shortly there after because my lines were not getting any darker. I think ONE test out of all my FRER's was darker. But even that was light. I was SOO emotional all these days and cried a ton thinking "why can't I STAY pregnant?". DH was optimistic, though. Said maybe it was just too early still. I also had, and still have, a slight cold (coughing a lot) and have a nice amount of creamy CM that I have noticed over the last 4 or 5 days (maybe since implantation??) Eating more, peeing more. For SURE!
13 DPO (today): I decided to test just one more time with a new FRER since my Walmart (88c cheapies) seemed to be progressing over the last day or so. Odd, I thought. I kept thinking "how in the hell are they getting darker after almost 5 days of FAINT BFPS??". So I bought another pack of FRER and said screw it! Took another test this afternoon (like 5th day urine) and it was the darkest BFP I have received thus far!!! YAY!!!!!! Looked perfect for 13dpo. I guess my test needed for me to pass the day of AF to really get dark. And the BITCH didn't show today!!! So don't fear if your test aren't dark when testing EARLY. It may get darker by day of missed AF or shortly after.

DH and I seriously stuck to the SMEP, we used Preseed EACH and EVERY time, I laid down after every BD and went to sleep. I take a prenatal every day and try to walk at least 3 days out of a week. I took Mucinex a few days leading up to O, but I ran out and didn't buy anymore after that. I don't make a lot of fertile CM so I think that in conjunction with Preseed is a winner!! Ladies if you are on the fence about Preseed, DON'T BE!! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!! I swear I get pregnant much faster with it, 1st or 2nd cycle each time. I am praying this one sticks because the last MMC had me so shaken up. I also prayed so, so HEAVILY this cycle and over the last few days. I told myself this new year is a year for GREAT THINGS and asked God to make it so. So far, God is in agreement with this pregnancy. One thing I can say that is different from the other 2 pregnancies post TR (THANK GOD) is I have NO spotting or bleeding. With my late DD I had spotting for WEEKS before and after bfp, but that pregnancy progressed fine until I succumbed to the PRE Eclampsia and had to deliver her early. With the MMC I had a WHOLE AF!! Tested a day after she left and DARK BFP! So I can at least be happy in that so far, no bleeding. Just a LOT of creamy CM!!! And I mean A LOT!!! Good luck ladies!!!!!! Hope that was thorough enough. I always try to be as detailed as possible with these posts. Stay positive!!!
