BFP after 3 miscarriages in a row

It is with caution that I share my story. I suffered 3 chemical pregnancies since Oct 2016. Oct, Dec, and most recently May of this year. I have one 2.5 y.o. daughter. I acquired a gluten intolerance after giving birth to my daughter. Long story short, I was very sick for nearly 2 years after her birth; colds, flus, illnesses left and right, ER visits, Gyno visits, you name it! I couldn't have sex due to pain and infections. It hurt. I felt terrible almost every day. We decided to try for another baby anyway. We started trying Sept 2016 and I got pregnant in Oct! It ended... Tried again almost right away and boom, got pregnant in Dec! It ended...After the 2nd m/c I decided I needed to see a specialist. That's when gluten came up in one of the talks with the doctor. I gave it up and BAMMMM, I instantly felt amazing. Lost weight. Looked awesome AND I could have pain free sex!!! Started trying again in March 2017 and fell pregnant in May! I felt great! I felt symptoms! I thought this is it! But, the lines on my hpts began to fade....a day at a time....just like both times before. I went for bloodwork and sure enough, the numbers weren't doubling. I m/c within a few days...I. was. crushed. My marriage was suffering, my hormones were raging, I thought I can't do this anymore. But, we kept pushing. We couldn't give up. I got a new Gyno (LOVE her). She did more testing...everything NORMAL, as usual. So why is this happening???? We started trying again in June, and I got pregnant in July! 7/25/17 to be exact. The exact week we conceived my daughter 3 years ago, my husbands birthday week...haha. I decided NO bloodwork - don't need the stress. I started taking progesterone that my new doc prescribed me - just in case. Here's my info: Day of Ovulation: strong positive OPK, did the deed! 1 DPO: negative OPK, did the deed anyway! 2: Nothing 3: Left pelvic pain, woke to pee at night (never do that!), so tired, thick white cm 4: Nipples sore 5: Super hungover, felt like barfing, celebrated husband's birthday, had friends over 6: Boobs feel strange today, waves of nausea, husband thinks I'm preggo! 7: Had dream I was pregnant! Had to pee so bad in morning. Headache, cranky, acne 8: Nothing logged 9: Faint BFP on FRER! Sense of smell is crazzzzy. Sharp uterus pains (implantation?), headaches, bloated, acne 10: Clear positive on FRER! Sore throat. Exhausted! Almost cried listening to a song on the radio, and it wasn't even a sad song... 11: Sore throat, sore nipples, cleaned my whole house! 12: BM was very strange, almost, but not really diarrhea (tmi), joint pain (so weird), nausea, EXHAUSTED and asleep by 8pm, again! 13: BFP is getting darker!!! Feeling reassured. Cramps, nausea, SORE nipples. Do. Not. Touch! 14: Took ClearBlue Digital and "pregnant" appeared almost immediately! 15: Darker BFP, nausea, SORE and hard nipples, EXHAUSTED. Fast forward...I am now 25 DPO and the test line on hpts is now SO, SO, SO dark. I'm scheduled to see my doc on 9/9/17. I'll be past 8 weeks. I'll continue to feel cautiously optimistic about this news until I hear my little baby's heartbeat! I hope my story gives any and all women who have had multiple miscarriages, chemical pregnancies, etc, HOPE to not give up! Never give up! No matter what happens, at least you can say you tried your best. Baby dust to all! xoxo

BFP with unexpected symptoms

Another BFP story from an older mom with TTC/loss/rainbow baby experience… I have a short LP (10-12 days), so by the time it makes sense to POAS, I already get my period or indications of it. And this cycle was the same. Here are my symptoms by dpo: 1-7 dpo: nothing in particular 7-8 dpo: stabbing pain in breasts (typical AF symptom for me) 9 dpo: I went and bought a big box of sweets for hubby and me. I was emotional and irritable. (Both, also AF symptoms for me). 10 dpo: My BBT fell, close to, but not below coverline. I also had a lower backache and felt moody/irritable. (All AF symptoms). I felt like testing late in the evening (10dpo), just to be sure. I fully expected AF to come soon, but I guess I didn’t want it to. I used a Wondfo dip strip. It says you should read it after 5 minutes (no upper limit given). I forgot and looked after 10 minutes. There was a faint but visible second line. Even hubby, who doesn’t know anything about POAS or faint lines) could see it. I thought it must be an evaporation line. I went and took care of some business. Two hours later, I wanted to test again, because I felt some slight soreness on my breasts and irritated/sensitive nipples (not AF symptoms). I used a SurePredict and a Wondfo. Read both at 5 minutes, but both were negative. After another 5 minutes or so, I looked with a flashlight and both had a second line. I couldn’t leave this hanging in the air. So, I went ahead and used a FRER and got a clear positive at midnight! I already got confirmed with a blood test and put on progesterone. Now in the waiting game and hoping and praying that it sticks!

Rainbow BFP 12-13dpo

This was our 6th cycle TTC. We had an early miscarriage/CP at 4+3 on our 4th cycle. Our 5th cycle TTC was the hardest mentally and most painful physically. I could not stop checking this site and symptom spotting like crazy leading up to really bad menstrual cramps in my back that sent me to the ER. Now here we are with our rainbow BFP after deciding we would only BD when we felt like it(which we never go more than a day off anyway) and trying to not keep track or symptom spot. I would still lay down for a while after BD'ing or even just go to sleep, but other than that we didn't do anything extra. I didn't have many symptoms and didn't keep track, but here is what I did take note of: Normal Cycles 28-30 days LMP 6/29 I usually ovulate around CD14, so that would've been 7/12 7dpo- 7/19 I flew across the country overnight and noted in my calendar a constant dull ache and a little pinching in my uterus (Implantation maybe,) and the tiniest wave of nausea the last hour of my flight (thought I was just hungry.) 7-12dpo- While on vacation the only thing I noted was vivid dreams every night including dreaming of a BFP when I napped for a few hours after landing the morning of 8dpo. I wanted to sleep the whole trip, but thought it was just jet lag. Had a tiny bit of heartburn once or twice, but I was not eating healthy or drinking water like I usually do and I was drinking more alcohol than usual (ooops!) Half way through the trip I told DH I thought I was pregnant because I felt nothing on the inside like I usually do before AF and my uterus just felt a little hard. The night before we flew home I started to cry talking to husband about how I'm not fit anymore and then got boiling mad when our flight got delayed making us miss our connection. Chalked up these emotions to normal PMS. 12-13dpo- Flew back home, had a tiny bit of heartburn and soreness on the sides of my bbs (especially left one,) took a test at 9:15 PM with diluted urine and got very clear, but faint BFP on walmart cheapie. Held urine for just 1.5 hours with no fluids and got a darker BFP on walmart cheapie!!! Then this morning took FRER and got another clear BFP!!! We are so excited and a little nervous!!!

33 yr 1st time mom after 1 miscarriage & abortion & 2 serious surgeries, No symptoms at all!

Hello All , I don't know where to start. I have been crazily reading all sorts of blogs during my 2 week wait. so, I know how much it helps during "this" time. For starters, I'm 33 year old and so is my husband. We conceived 5 years back but were not ready for a baby and so we carried out an abortion. Unfortunately the pill did not work properly and I had to undergo a surgery and it was very traumatic for both of us. Feb 2016, I had a false positive using HPT (Home pregnany test), and after blood test , which came as negative, my periods also started. We weren't trying but not avoiding always. We have been trying since Jan '17 and somehow we thought that it would be immediately pregnant considering how easy it was the 1st time. I started taking Vit D and Folic acid tablets. When after 3 months nothing seemed to work I started going out of my mind and feeling extremely guilty for having an abortion done. I cried myself to sleep many nights and it preyed on my mind most days. To top it off my gynaec (on visiting her in April) diagnosed secondary sterility and referred me to IVF doctors (part of the same clinic)!! After googling like crazy I decided to change the doctor and not go ahead with her suggestion simply because it was nonsense! We had tried only 3 months not 1 yr! Anyways, my usually 28-29 day cycle started getting erratic from Feb onward, 30days, 33days, 27 days, 30 days and my period length shortened considerably to just 2 days with some spotting on 3rd day. I decided to consult another gynecologist due to my shortening period length, I was scared of menopause starting realllly early for me. Trust me I thought the worst for all things possible. I was stressed all the time , weepy, unhappy. Nyhoo in May '17 ,the doctor conducted an ultrasound and as always she said all was OK, uterus & Fallopian tubes look good n clear, follicles developing well and plenty of eggs for many years. She conducted blood tests n pap smear also and then suggested me and my husband to take an antibiotic Doxycycline for 14 days as ureaplasm was found in my pap smear. I read later that ureaplasm may cause infertility in women and has no outward symptoms at all! And now 2nd month I got pregnant! I can't still believe, I guess I won't till I meet my doctor 10 days later. :) cd 6 , 10, 12, 14, 15, 17 : BD (babydance) :) cd 20 : drank 2 glass wine & scared cd 21 : light cm (cervical mucus) cd 22 : slightly gassy, bloated, tender breasts (or was it in my head) cd 23 : tingle near bellybutton on right, sleepy in aft., gassy n bloated cd 24 : insomnia (really odd coz i can sleep anytime anywhere), slight constipation (very unlike me) , light cm cd 25 : light cramps, cm. Hungry, anxious, craving salty food cd 26 : little yellow cm cd 27 : no cm, slight pain in overall tummy cd 28 : metallic taste , very little white cm, headache cd 29 : little white cm, backache, headache, tired to bones, irritable & moody cd 30 : insomnia (slept for 3 hours), heartburn, bloated tummy, light cramps in overall tummy, unbalanced, tired, slight constipation cd 31 : hot at night insomnia again but slept well in afternoon, heightened sense of smell, light body-ache, slight constipation. BUt just felt calm somehow, like I knew. cd 32 : Took HPT , came +ve just as I dreamed tonight. My blood test came +ve too. :) So you know there is hope for all of us. Things work in funny manner up in the heaven. What did I do differently : 1. Got blood tests and pap smear done to find any lurking hidden issues. 2. Prayed to God silently every night (my husband is atheist and I am nonpracticing ) 3. Drank little alcohol but did not abstain completely 4. Dissipated stress, did breathing exercises incessantly All the best to all of you. Keep trying , au naturale works. Just try very hard to give yourself hope every time there is a setback.

BFP after loss at 20 weeks

I lost my Marin at 20 weeks a few months ago. She was a rare baby to begin with, having been conceived on the Mirena IUD. But the moment I heard that little heart beating I knew I wanted her more than anything in the world. The loss was unimaginably difficult, I thought I was in the clear so far into it but she was sent to us only to teach us a lesson. My SO and I waited a bit then decided, when I started to be able to smile again without feeling guilty, to try once more. I looked up everything I could find on success stories, how people were getting pregnant, I downloaded the Ovia Fertility app and started tracking everything from my basal, to my cervix, to my CM. We snagged some Preseed (pricey though it is) and gave it a shot in mid to late June. The TWW was agonizing. I spent a better part of my free time reading forums of women that got BFPs and what symptoms they experienced during that time. I typed in the new DPO every day. So I wanted to share my experiences with you guys in case my story gives anyone hope during those long 14 days. 1-5 DPO: Nothing. 6 DPO: I felt some intense gas pains and bloating. Lasted all day. 7 DPO: I had an odd pinching sensation in my lower right abdomen near my belly button. Lasted most of that day. No spotting. Basal increased by .5. No other symptoms. 8 DPO: Woke to the tiniest hint of red and pink streaks. No pinching. Increase in CM that was clear and stretchy like my ovulation CM. Increased need to urinate. Basal increased by .5. No other symptoms. 9 DPO: Clear CM remained, spotting gone, Basal increased by .7. Increased need to urinate. Got BFN. 10 DPO: Clear CM remained, gas and bloating returned, Basal still heightened by .7, had mild headache threatening to get worse but never did. Incressed need to urinate remained. Almost feinted with low blood sugar symptoms, ate carrots, felt better (my blood sugar has always been perfect). 11 DPO: Clear CM remained, gas and bloating as well, constipation kicked in full swing, traffic was at a standstill in there. Except my urine...of course. Mild headache upon waking until sleeping again. 12 DPO: Same as 11 DPO, checked cervix, it was fairly high (I have short little sausage fingers but it took two knuckles to feel it) and it was soft and puffy like a little water balloon. It was closed. Basal still up .7. Fatigue settled in and what I call, the super sniffer, happened. I started smelling days old bleach in stores and cigarette smoke from blocks away. 13 DPO: Same as 12 DPO. Tried to keep mind off the last bit of wait. Super sniffer allowed me to, somehow, smell spicy queso Pringles the MOMENT he opened the can from 3 rooms away. 14 DPO: Same symptoms as the last few days but I noticed some mild breast tenderness and nipple sensitivity. Super sniffer continued, aversions set in (bacon has betrayed me), craving for tomatoes (I hate tomatoes) settled, and I experienced a coppery blood-like taste in my mouth. Got second BFN. I decided to wait a few days into my missed AF. I ended up with the same symptoms 3 days into my missed period and woke that morning with intense, dizzying nausea, and as I pulled my blankets up over my chest I cried out at the pain the weight of the dinky things put on my breasts. My eyes SHOT open. Time to take another test. 3 Days past AF: BFP on FRER test at 10am. BFP on First Signal at 3pm. 7 Days past AF: BFP on Clear Blue plus/minus and Clear Blue Digital. Doctor confirmed pregnancy 7/23/17 at 5 weeks, 5 days, due date March 20th, 2018. Ladies, do NOT lose hope, I got that second BFN on a FRER at 14 DPO. Every woman is different and every pregnancy is different. Your HcG levels have to be high enough to be detected by any of those tests. Good luck!

BFP After Early Stillbirth

Hi everyone! First of all, this was our fifth cycle trying. I had taken two tests - on CD 27, 31, and 34 - all BFNs. I was convinced I wasn't pregnant, I thought it was stress from moving. I barely charted any symptoms, unlike all the other previous cycles. Even so, I'll try to remember something for you guys. My stomache would feel weird sometimes from eating. Sometimes it felt like nausea, sometimes like the food just felt weird in my stomache. I was a tiny bit bloated, but mainly, I smelled things that no one else smelled. I would also randomely take naps throughout the day and wake up 2 hours later, to my surprise. These were my cues that made me start testing so early, but nothing was positive. Until.... CD 39. I was giving myself no chance, my husband wasn't either, we were just like, "Let's get this out of the way." To our utter surprise, the test turned positive. (I must have ovulated late.) We are absolutely overjoyed. I want to also share with you an encouragement, even though there are sad parts to it. I became pregnant in August 2016 with everything going well until our ultrasound at 10 weeks. Our baby had an enlarged NT (nuchal translucency). That NT kept growing and growing. I don't want to scare anyone on here, but at 12 weeks, my doctors said there was no chance this baby was making it and that she would die soon. She was diagnosed with Turner's syndrome at 15 weeks. In the middle of the pain, the shock, and the total disbelief that God could let this happened, I eventually came to find absolute peace in Him, and to realize that He did not intend my daughter to have this genetic disorder, someone else did. My daughter Ella died at 21 weeks sometime at the end of December and was born on January 8th. Even though I still mourn her, I know she's with her Father in Heaven, and that's such a victory. My husband and I have grown so much in our relationship with God as well. So, fast-forward to us trying for almost 7 pretty long months to this absolute miracle. I think it's still not sinking in, but I'm hopeful and pray that I place my trust in Him every day. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Faint BPF at 10 dpo after miscarriage in April

Okay so I used to read every BPF story and I wanted to post my BFP story. My fertile days were when we were camping so it was interestig trying to baby dance. haha. The day of ovulation I actually woke up with a UTI and had to call my doctor for a prescription so I thought we were out this month. O dpo - UTI and strangely I was short of breath. 1 dpo - my resting heartrate when up on my fitbit to 65 I'm usually at 59 so that was a jump but it only stayed up for one day and then dropped to 63 which is still higher than my prior to ovulation heart rate. Days 2 - 5 dpo - nothing too report not even a cramp. 6 dpo - I was nauseas and had sharp stabbing pains in my uterus. I was also super tired. I also had tons of creamy CM and needed to pee a lot but i figured that was because I was drinking lots of water because of my UTI. Getting really short of breath for some reason. 7 dpo - I had the faintest of faint lines on a 10 MIU test but negative on other tests so figured it was a faulty test. I was nauseas and for some reason the taste of diet soda made me ill. (never had this before) Lots of creamy CM. Fatigued again 8 dpo - negative FRER I was so sad because I was so sure I had a line on the senstive test. My boobs are super sore and I had sharp pains on my right side. My cervix is super high soft and open and still lots of cm. I also noticed my sense of smell had increased. 9 dpo - still super sore breasts my husband said they look and feel fuller. Tired & nauseaus and things taste wierd. I swear I see the lightest line on a clearblue but FRER is negative. Later that night there was a line on the clear blue but i figured it was an evap line. Cervix high soft and open. Resting heart rate jumps to 64 it never goes this high. Super emotional. 10 dpo - take a test and watch the lightest of lines come up on the clearblue plus sign. The weird thing is it kind of faded after 10 minutes. I took a Walmart brand test and there is a faint pink line. However the digital said not pregnant. I know it's early so I'll have to keep testing to see if my lines get darker. I am a POAS addict so I know when there is a line and when there isn't haha. Keeping my fingers crossed that this one sticks. It's nice to know I'm not crazy. I told my husband lastnight I feel like my body is telling me one thing and the tests are telling me another. Hoping the digi will show postive by Wednesday. Anyway I hope this helps all of you in your TWW it was so nice to read other peoples stories. I'm 39 and this is baby number 5. We are so excited but not celebrating until I actually miss

2nd BFP at 44 ending in miscarriage

Hi All, I just wanted to let all the forty something's out there know that conception was possible for me, even at my age, but was not able to get a sticky bean yet. I've had two miscarriages in a row after conceiving two months back to back. First miscarriage was at 4 w 6 d and second one happened yesterday literally an hour after seeing me heartbeat at 6 1/2 weeks). I started bleeding very heavily, clots and all, followed by an intact gestational sac. Follow-up ultrasound today showed complete miscarriage. My husband and I are moving on to infertility treatment next, as the last two times we conceived have been completely natural but it looks like we may need some outside assistance. This is a second marriage for me. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. We tried for 19 months and I conceived on the 20th month and 21st month trying. I believe multi-vitamins, B complex and coq10 helped us conceive. Good luck to all!
