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!

Didn't even think I was pregnant!! No symptoms at all!!!

Hi everyone, (sorry for the long post) I decided to write this, bcuz like so many other women I would search and search and read for any little clue any little chance of hope. I got my BFP on 12/30/2017 but I would have bet ANYTHING that I wasn't! A little back story: I'm 28 DH is 30 we have been married for 5 years but have been dating since I was 12 yrs old (6th grade). We don't have any children and didn't start trying until 2 years ago. Imagine my shock when it wasn't happening right away. I used opks and temping but nothing! I cried and stressed every cycle. I would think of the worst possible thing that could be wrong with me. After a year of trying I decided to buy some preseed and the first month BAM, BFP in Feb 2017!! I was over the moon! I had so many symptoms from the moment of ovulation, super sore boobies, lots of extra cm, dizzy, nauseous, heightened sense of smell and I wanted to jump DH bones all the time lol.. I did notice that my lines were faint at 1st but got darker within a few days, I didn't think anything of it. Well I went for a scan in March when I should have been 8 weeks according to my LMP but I told my Dr I ovulate late and that according to my calculations I should be about 7 weeks, but the baby was only measuring at 6 weeks. So she sent me off to get a TVUS one week later. My heart felt crushed but I still kept positive. I went to my appointment and I should have now been 8/9 weeks, my baby was still at 6weeks 1day with no heartbeat. I cried and cried. I decided to let my baby pass naturally and on my birthday when I should have been 11 weeks it finally did. It was a tough and mental/physical rollercoaster to say the least. My DH supported me through everything. So a month after that, I started trying again. I did not use preseed and month after month was depresses when af would show up. I went to the Dr again in Oct and she said there was nothing wrong with me and that if by March 2018 I still wasn't pregnant we would look more into it. But I always wanted to have a baby before 30! And March is my bday month. I was annoyed and upset. Well I moved into a new house in Nov and I thought I was pregnant bcuz my boobies were super sore and I had extra cm. But a week later af showed up.. December 2018 Ok my cycles are 35 days I know I ovulate between CD 19-22 and decided this month to use preseed again and used it on my highly fertile days up until ovulation. 1DPO - 14DPO NOTHING no sore boobies, no extra cm. Actually dry! Usually even when AF shows I have a little bit of cm. But nothing! No dizziness or heightened sense of smell. Nothing!!! I was so sure I wasn't pregnant. 9DPO - took a wondfo test cuz I have a bunch Neg. 13DPO - took another wondfo bcuz I was a little crampy and back ached, but that's totally normal for me b4 af shows, and nothing STARK WHITE!! I cried and felt deflated I just don't think it will ever happen for me. My wonderful DH wanted me to get my mind off of it, since I cried all night telling him I wasn't pregnant and I never would be able to give us a child. (He is so supportive always telling me it's ok and if we don't have a child that we have each other and our dog Arcric). So he planned a beautiful trip the next day, We went horse back riding, drank a piña colada and went swimming. (The horse I rode was pregnant and was so lovely and we'll behaved, there was also a pitbull on the property and the owners said she was very aggressive, but she came right up to me and wanted me to pet her and she followed me everywhere, the owners were very surprised, I think animals have that sense and know before we even do). I had a great time and went to bed happy and sore from the horse that night lol. 15DPO - ok af is a day late didn't think to much about it bcuz sometimes she is a day or 2 late or early. Buuut I have a FRER test in my drawer that I had been saving. I decided screw it and used it. I didn't want to look, I had my eyes shut and peeked through my fingers, I almost fell down! There it was the line I've been waiting to see! It wasn't super dark, but clearly there! My BFP I was so so excited!!! I went out and bought a CB digital and it said pregnant 2-3weeks! The wondfo tests still came up really light, almost invisible. And I did another FRER 6 days later from my 1st positive test and the line was so much darker that it took up most the dye and the control line was lighter lol I baked some cookies and put pink and blue frosting on them, I put the test in a little box with a note that said "pink or blue can't wait to see, you're going to have a baby with me" on 12/31 New Year's eve me and DH went to the beach to have dinner and watch the fireworks. We ate some cookies (oblivious of the pink and blue colors lol) and I gave him the box at midnight. He was so happy and kept telling me "I told you it would happen".

Faint BFP at 12 DPO!!

At the age of 37 I am TTC #2 with DH. We currently have a 19 month old son. This board has helped me get through the TWW many many times so i hope my story can help someone else. I am a plus size woman who for years struggled with amenorrhea with no underlying cause. I would go months without a period. On top of that DH struggles with ED. To achieve pregnancy with DS we used the at home insemination process, i tracked my cycle using Fertility Friend and OPK’s. We got pregnant the second cycle. The second time we TTC (Baby #2) we again got pregnant right away using the same method and i suffered a MC one week after getting my BFP. During this time i was nursing DS. My aunt and GYN advised me to stop nursing and they guaranteed that my cycles would regulate itself and I’d get pregnant. I weaned my son by August and my cycle became a regular 35-day cycle. Again, using the same method (OPK’s, at-home insemination, and tracking BBT on Fertility Friend. I got BFN’s for Sept, Oct, and Nov. I got a false BFP with a Walmart cheapie in October. So, here’s what you’ve been waiting for: (+ OPK at Cycle Day 21 (Temp 97.7)....Ovulation Cycle Day 22 Temp again is 97.5) 1 DPO - Nothing (temp 97.5) 2 DPO - Nothing (Inseminated one more time for good measure. We inseminated every other day 5 days leading up to expected ovulation) (Temp 97.7) 3 DPO - Temp spike to 98.2 (I’m usually around 97.5), headache and nausea 4 DPO - Nothing (temp still at 98.2) 5 DPO - Backache, tender breast, nausea and mild cramps (Temp 98.1 Ovulation confirmed two days after +OPK which was a bit off) 6 DPO - Nausea, I got a pimple which i rarely get and I didn’t sleep well that night (Temp dipped to 97.7 possible implantation dip or temp off due to poor sleep) 7 DPO - Cramps, diarrhea, tender breast and I felt a throbbing pain in my vagina in the afternoon (Temp spike to 98.3) 8 DPO - Nausea (Temp 98.0) 9DPO - Nothing (Temp dips to 97.9 and FF no longer have the data to support Ovulation based on my temps. I changed the setting to go by my +OPK instead of my temps because I’m confident that I ovulated. If I don’t get my period or get BFN i know that my cycle is changing....we’ll see) 10 DPO - I woke up with a terrible headache, heartburn and nausea (Temp 97.8) 11 DPO - Heartburn, tender breasts and nausea continues and I also have this terrible pain on both sides and my back. I’m not sure what’s causing this. It feels like I’ve been working out which i did not (Temp 97.9) 12 DPO - My period is expected today (i have a short leutal phase) and I’m praying that my temp doesn’t drop because of it does i know for sure AF is on her way (Temp stays at 97.9. I feel fatigue, pain in my thighs, tender breast, cramps, vagingal throbbing and nausea. I want to test but i cannot take another month of a BFN. Before coming home after work i break down and by a 2pk FRER. I take it as soon as i get home and just like that i get a faint BFP very quickly. I didn’t even have to squint to see it. I’m calling my OBGYN in the am to schedule my scan and I’ll take the second test in the am to see if the line gets darker. I’m excited and so scared at the same time. This is the best Christmas gift EVER! I hope this helps one of you ladies. I’m praying that my little bean stays put for the next 36.5 weeks. Good luck and God bless.

Getting our rainbow

Of course I have been stalking this page for almost 2 years. I finally get to post mine and I am SO excited!!!! We got pregnant back in May of this year (2017) but we lost that baby in July, on my husband's birthday. Since then, I have had 2 IUI's....the 2nd worked. I did not trigger an I did not take any progesterone before or after the IUI. I was on clomid 100mg on CD3-7. We BD'd on CD10, 14, 15, 16. I o'd on CD 15 and did the IUI on the same day *O day- Got the positive OPK in the morning and had the IUI at 4 that afternoon (11.22 (the day before Thanksgiving) cramping after the IUI *3-5DPIUI-My nipples feel like they are going to fall off. THEY HURT!!!! Not the entire breast, just the nipple. I am wondering what's going on because I KNOW it's way too early for pregnancy symptoms. Still cramping but now they are dull and in the background. If I had to guess, I would say they were in my uterus. *6DPIUI-still cramping and my nipples are still sore. Like, I couldn't hug my kids without tremendous in pain. Still crampy. Constipated. *7DPIUI- took my first test...BFN with FRER, walmart first signal and internet cheapie. I'm thinking it's still really early so I didn't really get upset about the negative. My appetite has increased, but that happens as it gets close to my period so i don't think anything of. I am gassier than usual. Nipples still hurt. Still crampy *8-9DPIUI- took a test (internet cheapie)...BFN nipples are still sore but not as bad as it before. This has me worried. I am thinking "If I were pregnant, my symptoms would be increasing, not decreasing." very emotional. Secretly loosing hope but still telling myself that it's still early *10DPIUI- tested with an internet cheapie. BFN. nipples have gone from sore to tender. EXTREMELY emotional. Cried over small stuff, things that i would not normally cry over (example: the dishwasher had not been unloaded). Appetite is still increased. My dog started following me around and being clingy. She would not let me out of her sight *11DPIUI- tender nipples still have those dull cramps in my lower abdomen area. It feels like my uterus. BFN on FRER and internet cheapie. I cried today. Still feeling out this month because I feel like "I should have more symptoms by now" and "the last time, by this time, i had a BFP already" and "it seems like everybody else has gotten their BFP days ago" *12DPIUI- decided not to test. I didn't think that I I could handle seeing another negative. I had a complete breakdown wondering when my time was coming. short tempered and very emotional. My beta was scheduled for today but I cancelled because I didn't want to pay ($40 copay) for my doctor to tell me that I am not pregnant. Just an emotional day *13DPIUI- Decided at the last moment to test...faint positive on the first signal test. Tried FRER using the same sample (FMU)...faint positive. Tested again using SMU on a first signal, darker line. Went to the store and bought 2 boxes of clearblue digitals, 1 box (3 count) FRER, 5 first signal tests. Clearblue gave me those words that I have been waiting SO long to see....PREGNANT. Went in for a blood test to confirm. HCG was at 29. Progesterone as at 24. By my calculations, I am 3 weeks and 5 days today. The doctor says I don't need to be on any progesterone supplement as of now. I go back in on Thursday to make sure my HCG has doubled as it should.

No symtoms at all! BFP after 3 miscarriages

I've been on this site so many times over the last few years and am so happy to post today but thought it would be particularly encouraging for those in the 2ww who have no symptoms. We've been trying for our third child for the last 3 years and have had 3 miscarriages and many many months of BFN's in between. The 2ww is so hard and I've been writing down how I feel every day. Last month I was so certain I was pregnant (I had what I thought was implantation pain, awful nausea, a strange taste in my mouth) that I went and had an ultrasound 2 days before AF was due as I thought it might show something and I couldn't wait any longer! Of course I wasn't but here I am 1 month later and I am! I have to stress I had absolutely no symptoms..no nausea, no abdo pain, no fatigue, no bloating etc. In my last pregnancies I think I had very slight fullness in my boobs even at this stage but I don't even have that. Oh dear as I write tis I'm worrying already that it's not going to last! Oh well, will deal with that if and when.. Anyway am going to try to enjoy it for now! Good luck everyone , wish you all lots of love and courage, x

BFP CD23 - 11DPO only DTD once

Hi All! I’ve been on this site for over a year now and I’m happy to finally post my BFP journey by DPO. Bit of background info - I’m 29, I have 2 beautiful children (DS12&DD9), I had a cp August 2016 and I was diagnosed with Chronic Migraines, June of this year. I have had constant headaches during the 2WW but haven’t documented them as I wouldn’t know better. This was a surprise and we weren’t proactively trying but if it happens it happens. CD10 - DTD pm, cm - creamy CD11 - EWCM, I can feel my boobs Pm gassy - fuller/bloated feeling, pain when I cough Ovulation Day CD12 - Light cramping, EWCM, ovulation pain left side. BBT 35.7 1DPO - Mid left cramps, bad gas- lower tummy very tight making it hurt when I did a wee wee. backaches. Creamy cm. BBT 36.1 2DPO - ovulation pain left side?! Bad gas with pain. tingly nipples, shooting pain in left breast more than once in afternoon which continued to midnight. pain in left midsection maybe gas related. I need to pee every 1 hour since waking up to lunchtime. body aching. small amount of ewcm not very stretchy, dry cm after 8pm. Hot flushes in the afternoon and noticing I’m thirsty. Craved watermelon? I don’t really like this! Fatigue and nausea. BBT 36.1 3DPO - Left side twinges /pains. Tired. Gassy and bloated with aches. Creamy cm. Heightened sense of smell. My partner can’t seem to do anything right today and into the coming week! So grumpy lol BTW this isn’t me. BBT 36.2 4DPO - light cramps and extreme gas pain. I’m thinking WTH is going on with me?! I have never been like this in my life. My partner offered to swap butts so he could get rid of my gas for me lol so sweet. BBT 36.2 5DPO - Gas aches and pains. Thirsty. BBT 36.5 6DPO - Boobs slightly tender on and off. Very gassy. One sharp cramp this morning and Back aches after breakfast.. I never eat breakfast but I was sick hungry. BBT 36.5 My guess now is this was the day of implantation. 7DPO - Gas pain and food cravings. I wanted a chocolate cake and nothing else haha BBT 36.1 8DPO - very tired.

So I’m sitting on the couch while my partner is burping and carrying on and I thought to myself, im not the gassy one in the relationship it’s him and maybe it’s a pregnancy symptom? Having multiple pregnancies I haven’t had any of my usual 2WW symptoms. I took a confirm HPT and got a very very faint line. BBT 36.2 12DPO - I find this funny that the moment I take FMU HPT, and get a second faint line that I then get every symptom I normally would.

Pulling sensations in uterus? Boobs are really sore. Nauseous / light headed Tired/exhausted Emotional at a wedding ring? (lady taking bloods) it was pretty! Lol Hot flushes Burning / period sensation Gas HPT confirm faint pink positive. FRER BFP Drs appointment also had Blood test today. I’ll post my Beta HCG results for you ladies on Monday. I also recommend not using the Confirm HPT as they not very sensitive. FRER for the win 14DPO - Clear Blue digital not FMU pregnant 1-2weeks, but I already know that only DTD once! Pulling sensations in stomach Sharp shooting sensations left side of abdomin Very sore boobs and sick hungry. Still early days for me but fingers crossed this one sticks. I hope this helps someone :) Baby dust to all

BFP after 3 years of trying

After 3 years of ttc, including 3 IUIs, 3 IVF cycles, 1 miscarriage and 1 chemical pregnancy, I am in a place where I feel like my miracle is real. After transferring 1 5AA PGS normal embryo, I finally have a healthy pregnancy. There were definitely some things I did differently this cycle that I believe led me to success. For 3 months before my stimulation I followed the CCRMs acai study - I took 2 NOW brand acai tablets 3 times daily (purchased from amazon), along with other vitamins recommended by my naturopath such as CoQ10, vitamins d and e, fish oil, and folic acid. I saw dramatic improvement in egg quality from the acai. My first ivf my spindle view (a marker of egg quality) was 67. For my second it was 75 (after starting my vitamin regimen). After adding the acai before my 3rd IVF cycle, it rose to 89, which absolutely shocked me. My cycle with the acai was the only one in which we made a PGS normal embryo, and top grade at that. After FET with this beautiful embryo, I felt absolutely nothing during 1-4dp5dt. No implantation bleeding, no cramping. My boobs were already sore and swollen from the progesterone, they stayed that way. Around 5-6dp5dt I had some AF like cramps, as well as a very sore lower and middle back, which I never get. Around 8dp5dt onward I had lot of very watery cm, and the sore back continued on and off. I also had acupuncture done right before and right after the transfer. I managed to remain very positive throughout the 2ww - of course there were moments where I stressed and felt like it didn't work, but there were also times where I felt like I just knew I was pregnant. I am so grateful to be where I am today, and wish the same for everyone who reads this. Don't give up!
