10 DPO BFP!! Hello, Rainbow Baby!

I'm going to try to keep this short, but... we'll see how that goes. Scroll to the bottom for symptoms by DPO.

I took Clomiphene (50mg) days 5-9 this cycle. This was my 6th time taking Clomiphene and have had a chemical pregnancy, a "missed miscarriage" at 7w5d and a loss after seeing a heartbeat at around 11w. Our most recent loss was a baby girl with Trisomy 8.
I also use Preseed lubricant internally, but I ran out on O day this cycle. We had sex every other day up until O and had sex the day before, day of, and the day after my positive OPK. I use Wondfo OPKS and they always stay positive for at least 2 days.

O day- CD 16, hardly any CM at all (worried)
DPO 1- crampy, crazy vivid dreams
2- more vivid dreams, EWCM?
3- vivid dreams
4-
5- mild cramping starts
6-mild cramping, backache, was pretty sure I was pregnant because of the backache, very tired
7- mildly crampy, backache, diarrhea in AM (big clue), very tired
8- weird green CM, tired
9-BFN, thought I was out, BAD gas
10- very faint positive in am on Wondfo, showed my husband and he saw it too, took 3 more tests including 2 Wondfos and a FRER around noon-- all positive! Never have gotten a positive this early.
11-13 more positives
14- Confirmed pregnancy at OBs office

The dead giveaways this cycle were the mild cramping and backache, although my cramping was much more severe last time I got pregnant. Also, I was exhausted! Luckily I was on vacation that whole week and I took naps or went to bed early during the last part of my TWW.

Good luck to everyone TTC and my heart goes out to everyone seeking their rainbow. I am terrified of another miscarriage, but I'm trying to take it day by day and just be thankful for another chance. We are praying for a healthy baby in early March.

Pregnant with our RAINBOW!

I have three healthy children. I miscarried my fourth baby April 2016 at around 5 weeks. I had spotting of light brown a few days before the actual miscarriage. I knew something was wrong from the beginning of finding out we were pregnant - I felt off and different and I am very intuitive with my body. I had a vivid dream that night I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in a water birth and she had the name we picked out for her so I knew then that we will have our baby girl soon. I also dreamt my boys were all boys as well. I waited till I had my first period post miscarriage which was May 7th for us to try to conceive again.

I continued to take my prenatal vitamins and started taking baby aspirin as well on calendar day 8 of the new cycle. I started using the Clearblue Ovulation tests on Sunday, May 15th. May 16th and May 17th I had a TON of watery discharge but tested negative that morning. I knew ovulation was approaching. Around 5:40 PM on May 17th I decided to take another ovulation test because of being achy all of a sudden on the left side near ovary when I walked and what do you know - BIG SMILEY FACE. We had sex the 15th and 16th already so we had sex the night of the 17th as well and called it good. I had a good feeling this was it. The evening on the 18th around 6 PM I felt the big pinch on left side of the egg being released so I ovulated that day. Ovulation test was negative (blank circle) at 8 PM that night. Here are my symptoms:

May 19th - 1 DPO - Diarrhea when I got to work and bad stomach cramps out of no where. Felt ill the entire day. Didn't even eat breakfast so I know it wasn't something I ate.
May 20th - 2 DPO - Gas and heartburn after eating BBQ ribs for dinner. That never happens. My left breast was tender under armpit like I did a ton of heavy lifting when I didn't. We were on family vacation. Left nipple also started getting a bit sore.
May 21st - 3 DPO - Nothing. Just a little sleepy from our vacation activities.
May 22nd - 4 DPO - light headache, stomach feels off and upset, little moodiness
May 23rd - 5 DPO - Lower back pain in the morning and cramps that lasted half the day. Felt like my period was coming but WAY too early so I was but was pretty sure it was IMPLANTATION!!!
May 24th - 6 DPO - little runny nose in the morning, little breast pain before bed and light cramping. My partner told me that he dreamt of a baby girl learning how to walk and how beautiful and happy she was playing in our living room.
May 25th - 7 DPO- Creamy mucus, tender breasts a little bit but not much and FAINT line on the WONFO Pregnancy test in the evening!!!! SHOCKED!! Took two and both had faint lines!
May 26th - 8 DPO - Light headache, creamy mucus
May 27th - 9 DPO - Tired and HOT! Another positive on Dollar Tree test, First Response, and Wondfo!!!
May 28th - 10 DPO - Lightheaded, little queasy, tired, Darker positive on First Response and ClearBlue Digi says Pregnant 1-2!!!!

I am really excited and feeling good this go around that all will go great!! Can't wait for our upcoming ultrasound! Due February 2017! Also planning a water birth at our birthing center here! It will be a beautiful, amazing experience!

BFP iUI #3

So I've stalked this forum for 2.5years now. Both my husband and I are 34. I have a 13 year old from a previous marriage. After 2 years we decided to start trying but had no luck. We decided to try iui. The doc did say my husband's sperm quality was low when we did the SA. We decided to proceEd and just pray there would be an improvement. My cycles are regular and I do ovulate. I feel it and chart my temp. Doctor put me on 50mg of clomid. I had really bad gas followEd by 3 strong cramps at 9dpo iui and what I think was implantation bleeding the next day. We went in for our scan at 7 weeks but the pregnancy failed to progress and I had a 6cm cyst. We waited and within a week I miscarried and the cyst dissolved. We waited a year before trying again, iui without meds. Because i did nlt want to get ankther cyst and i do ovulate. We did the iui on day 12 but i ovulated on day 13. That cycle was bust. We rested the next cycle and tried this month. I went in for a scan on day 11, follicle and lining looked good so I decided to just do a trigger. I ovulated in the morning on day 13 and procedure was done in the afternoon. The 2 week wait was uneventful. I had no obvious symptom. My stomach was a little queasy but I dismissed that. Then my boobs startEd to hurt a little. I took a test and saw a very faint line at 9dpo. Thought it was the trigger. Woke up at 10dpo iui and my nipples were sore to the touch. Took a test with fmu and got a stronger line. Took a digital at 11 dpo and it was positive too at 1 to 2 weeks. We got our positive the same time I was miscarryin last year. So this is definitely a blessing and we're so thankful. Praying that this little one will stay with us. It's now a 3 week wait before we get our first scan.

So ladies hang in there and don't worry too much if you don't have very many symptoms. You can still get a BFP.

BFP After D&C

Hi ladies,

I really hope this helps someone as much as all the other posts have helped me...I'll try to keep it brief for all the anxious readers like myself lol

I had my third miscarriage in February 2016, and had to have a D&C. (First two miscarriages happened naturally)...I was devastated, but determined to keep trying.

March and April, my cycles had returned but we're really off...so hubby and I baby danced every two days to cover our bases...March BFN...April BFN...

After my period in April, I decided to take my prenatals more consistently, and began exercising again (I had stopped after the miscarriage...due to lack of motivation and overall sadness)

*Period April 22 (8 days early than it should have been) period was weird...spotted for two days before my full blown period kicked in...lasted about five days

*Went immediately into doing the deed every two days using PreSeed as a lubricant

*Took prenatals every morning...light exercise in the afternoons

*Hubby was out of town the day I was scheduled to ovulate so I assumed I'd be out again this month...but we did the deed before he left and immediately when he returned

*Using an app, I noticed that my period should be coming soon, but I had none of my usual symptoms

*8-9DPO Tested using a cheapie because I'm a POAS addict lol...didn't see anything, but left it on the counter while I ran errands...came back to what I assumed was a strong evap line

*10-11DPO tested the following morning with an FRER...BFP...tested again using same urine...BFP on Clear Blue, Equate, and two more cheapies

The lines were faint but definitely there.

Praying for a sticky bean, and a healthy 9 months

BFP dpo 10 after first cycle of Letrozole + CoQ10!

So excited to have my BFP! My husband and I have been TTC for 6 months now with a miscarriage in week 6 of our second month of trying. I have high levels of estrogen naturally, and my cycles are typically 36-42 days long. My doctor prescribed me Letrozole (femara) to take on CD 3-7. I took a Letrozole pill each night, 2.5mg daily dosage. Felt fine overall with no side effects except drowsiness which wasn’t too bad since I took it before bed anyway. Also, a friend of mine undergoing fertility treatment says her doctor swears by 1200 mg CoQ10 vitamins, so I’ve been taking that each day, too, beginning at CD 1. I ovulated at CD 15.

1 DPO: no real symptoms, BBT still low/normal
2 DPO: BBT rose, confirming ovulation as I expected about +0.5 degrees F. Had some cramping and bloating.
3 DPO: Had some sinus soreness, felt tired.
4 DPO: bloating, minor tugging feeling in my lower abdomen; I’m assuming this was the beginning of implantation.
5 DPO: bloated again, and very minor tugging feeling in my lower abdomen again. No implantation bleeding like I had 4 months ago when I was pregnant but miscarried.
6 DPO: more bloating, no cramping but minor indigestion/constipation.
7 DPO: bloating. Had my blood drawn to test my progesterone levels. Very thirsty.
8 DPO: bloating, thirsty. Progesterone levels came back great at 21 ng/ml (doctor said anything from 15 to 25 is great for supporting pregnancy in the uterine lining. Felt good about these results!
9 DPO: Some breast soreness in the evening, thirsty most of the day even though drinking plenty of water. I shrugged it off thinking that if my breasts were sore again tomorrow then I’ll take a pregnancy test.
10 DPO: Woke up feeling okay in the morning and decided to delay taking the HPT. Went to a friend’s bbq, and had extremely sore breasts by the late afternoon. Went home and took a HPT and got my BFP!!! I used the Clear Blue Easy with Weeks Estimator and it said I was 1-2 weeks since ovulation, which is right on.

It’s still very early at this stage, as of today I’m CD 33, DPO 18. I’m trying to contain my excitement since I miscarried at CD 37-40 last time. It feels better this time with my symptoms getting stronger each day (ie more breast soreness, more food cravings, and I’m even welcoming the mood swings!). Also, I started spotting around CD 35 last time and had implantation bleeding, but haven't had any of that this time. Fingers crossed that it all goes well!

BFP

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share my BFP story in hopes of giving someone hope abd motivation like this website has given me.

I had an MC at 15 weeks in march, my DH and I were heartbroken but wanted to keep working on our now rainbow baby! First cycle didn't happen for us so I got some OPKs downloaded an app and was determined to succeed. And today my BFP!!

So here's how my cycle went:

Cd1-cd6 period (I usually have heavy ones this ond was no exception)
CD 8 : positive opk, BD
CD 9- CD 12: negative opk, BD just in case
CD13- CD 20: BD every other day just for fun
CD 21: positive opk ( what the what?!!) No BD didn't have the opportunity.
CD 22- CD 23: positive opk again!!! BD on CD 23
CD 24- 30: negative opk, felt like we missed out since we only had the chance to get at it once sp bd every other day without giving it a lot of thought.
CD 31-cd 34: HPT negative BD again for a good measure.
CD 35 or more like cd 1 since af arrived.

BUT wait, there's more...

CD 1- CD 6: period completely normal for me heavy period nothing out of the ordinary.

CD8: decided to take opk since last month waa so strange and guess what: blazing positive so, BD again and throughout until CD 11

Now comes the fun part

I found it strange that I kept getting blazing positives non stop and I've read a lot about the fact that if opk stays posituve for longer it could indicate pregnancy so decided to take HPT without any hopes and guess what faint positive, not a squinter.

Next day (today) took more hpt's including the digital all show BFP and significantly stronger then yesterday! How could this be? I mean I've as well have been having spotting since cd 9. Tomorrow going to doc to confirm but this is the strangest thing ever. Means I had implantation a day or so after my period which is practically impossible. But I am optimistic since lines have gotten a lot stronger, hoping for a sticky bean!

Don't lose hope ladies, baby dust to u all!!!

BFP with PCOS, clomid, glucophage and after miscarriage

I am writing here as I have prayed very hard to God to give me a BFP after my miscarriage about 6 month ago. God has really listened to my prayer and gave me a BFP yesterday!! Thanks to God. Hope this story will also give more hopes to people around me!

I will give a brief background of myself. I am a mum of a 2.5 year old and had conceived the first one when I prayed in different churches in Paris, England and Barcelona. Doctor say it is very difficult for me to conceive due to my PCOS as my hubby sperms also had low count and poor structure..

I am on clomid 150mg and also glucophage for 3 cycles 2 month after my miscarriage which allows my cycle to become between 42-45 days. Used to be longer without these 2 medications. Btw, I am underweight too.

I used OPK to try and detect my ovulation period and also BD as much as I can (once every 1-2 days) during the possible period to conceive.

This month, my OPK was first positive on 30 Apr and hence ovulation could be 1 or 2 May. Assuming it as 1 May,

4dpo - a bit of sore boobs

6dpo - Left abdomen burrowing feeling in morning, Cramp throughout abdomen in afternoon

7dpo - Middle left abdomen slight pain for a few minutes

8dpo - Middle left slight pain in the AM for a few min; Start to have menses like cramp in the afternoon: tested BFN (with 15mIU sensitivity strip) was sad

9dpo - no more cramp, tested BFN but it became faint positive after 30 min (test time should be 5 min and not exceeding 15 min)

10dpo - test again and very faint line after 10 min so decided to do blood test at lunch time. Report came back as hCG level 98.7mIU! Was very happy and went to see Gynae in the evening. Gynae mentioned that it is still considered as chemical pregnancy and the sac can only be seen next week so will go back and do a scan next week!

Will keep everyone posted on the updates!

Thank you God for giving me a miracle!!!

Never Give Up. This is for you.

I told myself if I ever get my BFP, I'll help someone just like this site has helped me.
1-3 dpo. Sleepy...but that's normal for me.
4 dpo. School glue present. Took nap after work.
5 dpo. Argument with DH. Still some school glue. Still tired. Thirsty after drinking at least a half gallon of water. I ate a foot long sub in the am. Then Ruby Tuesday's that evening.... I don't normally eat that much...but I figured it's bc AF is on the way.
6 dpo. Heavy feeling in pelvic area. Mild pain in left pelvic area. Hungry.
7 dpo. OMG. All day...lower left abdomen dull cramps continue that even made my left leg ache with each pinch. Smh. It stopped around 9pm. I'm praying this was implantation.
8 dpo. Woke up around 1am refreshed....thought it was 7am...lol. O, and had to pee...I never wake up around that time. Weird. No cramps so far. I don't notice much school glue but my breast are now fuller (but that's normal around this time). Still have this heavy feeling in lower left pelvic area. As if af is on...I'm now feeling slight aches in lower left back and left butt cheek. Lol. So weird. One glob of yellow CM later that day. Gassy.
9 dpo. Woke up hungry. No cramps until after 5p...then it returns. Feels like af is near. Lower left back dull aches. Increased watery CM. Bloated. Still got this heavy feeling in uterus. Went to the gym for less than 12 mins and I normally do at least an hour...lol. Sneezing. Burping. Flatulence. Qeefing. Dry eyes. Took a test around 3p......BFN w/FRER !! I shouldve known better but read some ppl get a + early...
10 dpo. Woke up around 4am. Took a test...BFN w/FRER using FMU. Ugh! It's mothers day too....thought I'd have a pleasant surprise. Thought about my miscarriage yrs ago and I started crying....Start to cramp again around 8 am while laying down and it continues through out the day. Rough day for me.
11 dpo. Today...Woke up around 2am to pee. Burping as if i just ate but I didn't. Breast now starting to feel weird. Heightened sense of smell. Went to work.....ate a huge plate of Chinese food like it wasn't nothing....all while being hot at the same time. Felt real juicy down there too. Went home...decided to torture myself again....took a test around 3p....BFP using FRER!! Dropped to my knees and started praising the Lord! Won't he do it! I'm still in shock.
*The only thing I did different was stay on top* Lol. May God bless each of you! Praying for a healthy baby. *******************Baby dust**********************

Pregnant At 44!

Hi Ladies! Congratulations on all of your pregnancies! Wow! I'm pregnant! I already have a 24 and 20 year old,and thought I was done. My partner and I have been discussing,and planning,but not really trying yet. I was concerned about the age thing,since I hear so much about that,and few years ago,I had a miscarriage in the first trimester.I had no pregnancy symptoms and found out about the pregnancy shortly before the miscarriage happened.

Well, I'm totally surprised! I have been super tired and had sore breasts for about 2 weeks...over the weekend I noticed spotting...looked like implantation bleeding,and low backache. I was intrigued,but in disbelief. So, I waited a few days,until today to take a home pregnancy test which took no time at all to come up positive! So here I am 44, and if the little one can hang in there, will be 45 when I give birth. Everything that I see on the net about this is negative and puts worrisome thoughts into my head. Thank You all for sharing your stories. I'm happy to hear that there are more of us,and that this really is normal!

BFP After one cycle of Clomid.

Hi, I think I owe everyone on this website my BFP story... I have been lurking at zillion BFP stories here for almost a year now.

Hubby and I started trying to have a baby in March'15. After two monts of trying with no success ( we thought getting pregnant was so easy sigh! ), I went to OBYGN to make sure everything was Ok. Doc told us that I have a retro cervix meaning in order to get pregnant, we have to doggy style when baby dancing for hubby's sperms to reach faster directly to my cervix. We did that every month until August cycle when we found We were pregnant!! But unfortunately the pregnancy ended the following month at 9 weeks. Doc confirmed it was a spontanous abortion. I had some spotting one day and it continued to heavy bleeding just like period. I had a D&C in Sept 25th, 2015. I finally had my period 37 days later on Oct 29th. And another period in December 5th - 37 days later. I went to OBGYN who confirmed that I had not ovulated post DC considered the 37 day cycle. So he prescribed clomid to help me ovulate, which I did. While Hubby was sent to the lab to get his sperms checked. He confirmed I had 2 almost mature eggs ( one was bigger than the other one ), so we BD'ed 3 times that month - every other day.

Meanwhile we also found out that hubby sperms result did not come out good. He only has 2 % morphology though normal counts. So at this point we were only betting at the 2 percent. looking at the result, our OBGYN recommended us IUI to speed up the pregnancy, but we told him we would think about it. Basically he confirmed with the sperm result, we needed to have IVF or IUI. So we were planning to do IVF in May 16 while fixing our lifestyle.

Since November we also tried to alter our lifestyle. We work out a lot, cut down on carbs, eat more protein, fruits and drank lots of juice. Our mindset was just trying to do our best and let God do the rest.

And surprisingly : BFP! It was really shocking. We kept staring at the stick and thought we were both being delusional. It still seems surreal even now.

So below is the detail of my TWW symptoms:

DPO 1: pulling sensation in my abdomen, ovulation like pain. Thought it could be the clomid's side effect.
DPO 2: the pain continued and spreaded to my back, so I thought we didn't want to miss the opportunity so we BD'ed again. This was Christmas day.
DPO 3:I woke up sneezing and I thought I caught a cold. My body felt warm.
DPO 4: Same as DPO 3
DPO 5: back hurt, weird twinges in my lower abdomen ( esp. In the middle part). I had this kind of pain last month when I didnt ovulate so I thought this was just my body gearing up for period
DPO 6: Back pain, slight cramps on the right side of abdomen ( AF style pain ) and white creamy CM. They said clomid do all kinds of crazy stuff. So sigh...
DPO 7 : I felt fine!!! Boobs hurt but only a little - they were heavy but aside of that, nothing. White creamy cm continued but less.
DPO 8 : same as DPO 7
DPO 9 : I had more CM, white sticky and watery CM ( I never had CM between OV and period/pregnancy, so this was new )
DPO 10: cramps on the left and rightside of abdomen and CM continued.
DPO 11: cramps more intense, I swam on this day and I could feel it more in the water. Back pain and sticky CM, craving for something sour and spicy. I felt so tired during the night and went into a deep sleep.
DPO 12: I ran for a little bit, thought the back pain was more intense and needed to fixed with a little exercise. After I ran, felt so tired and took two naps. Boobs hurt much and sticky CM
DPO 13 : Woke up at 4:30 AM, had a sudden thought to POAS. Used a cheapie stick and came out really faint. I went back to bed and woke up to check it again at 8 AM - it was darker. I was not convinced. The whole day cramps were more intense mostly on the left sife of abdomen and spread to my back. At this time, I didnt tell hubby abt the whole POAS thing.
DPO 14 : POAS in the morning, BFP - faint line but more apparant. Called hubby to go into the bathroom and he confirmed it was BFP!!!
DPO 15: Blaring BFP at 8:45 PM.

We are cautiously very happy... hoping this one sticks!! We don't know what the future holds for us... We are just hoping for a healthy and full-term pregnancy this time around.
