BFP After Miscarriage

I have one child who is almost 3. We were pregnant and lost the baby at 7 weeks in September. We have been trying every since. It has been stressful and we almost lost hope. This month was a little different. I was focused more on other things that were happening in my life then getting pregnant. We did try though.

I took my doctors advice and bd'd every other day starting day 11 of my cycle. We used pre seed but only a very tiny amount. Another thing I did that may or may not of helped was I ate pineapple during and after ovulation. I also stopped using my makeup with sialic acid. I read somewhere that it was bad for the baby but I think it helped a lot in getting me pregnant day 11,13,15, 16
lh surge day 13, and 14
ovulated on day 15
dpo 3 that evening I had really horrible cramps.
dpo 5 boobs started feeling heavy
dpo 7 very very faint line with fondo
dpo 8 faint line again a bit darker with fondo (tried not to get my hopes up because this has happened MANY times before.
dpo 9 Tested in the morning. Faint but a bit darker. Decided to buy frer. There was a definite line! Told my dh that evening and tested a gain. A bit darker this time
dpo 10 tested with fondo and line is darker
dpo 11 fondo test shows bright pink line!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so happy. A bit scared because of our previous miscarriage. Wishing the pregnancy sticks! Good luck to all and thanks to everyone for sharing their stories.

My Big Fat Positive!!!!!

I cannot believe it - TTC since I got married in May, had a missed miscarriage in sep and medical management for this. I have PCOS and my cycle length varies - ovulating on day 28 one month, then day 20, then day 36. Never thought I would get another BPF! finally! today - 13DPO!!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY - CANT STOP CRYING -

Here are my symptoms - not been fully charting/documenting all symptoms

Main symptoms: flu like symptoms 3-7 DPO.
Feeling of being 'wet' doing below despite having ovulated.
tired +++
feel slightly nauseous. cooking + for my hubby but not wanting to eat it my self - that is COMPLETELY UNLIKE ME!!!!

8dpo bfn
9dpo bfn
10dpo bfn
11 dpo bfn
12 dpo bfn

Today 13DPO - did cheap preg test but very very very faint line appeared straight away - thought it was an evap line. did another and it looked more faint.

Went out and bought digital clear blue - PREGNANT 1-2 WEEK!!!!!!!!! STILL IN SHOCK!!!

Hope baby sticks around!! worried as I have PCOS and don't want my progesterone levels being too low causing a miscarriage - I'm going to see OBGYN next week to discuss

BABY DUST TO ALL - I am a serial worrier - everyone told me I wouldn't get pregnant worrying - for all those who worry as well - keep praying - your dreams will all come true!!!

BFP Finally After 2 MC!

Finally got my BFP, actually got it last week but only just felt brave enough to post.

had 2 mc before dd. Been TTC for just over 2 years now. In that time, after ttc 10 months, had mc at 13w. Then after another 6 mth had BFP but it only lasted 5 days. Since August 11, been having tests for recurrent mc and generally going insane. no problems have shown up and dr told us to go away, enjoy xmas and stop being so stressed about it. easier said than done.

So, this time, I was not hopeful at all, drank lots of wine before and during 2 ww, did intensive exercise and had bad fall, was not particularly careful as was convinced it would not work and would end up starting IVF in a few month time.

2 dpo - sore left boob started (but I get that most months before AF).
8 dpo - felt bloated and mildly constipated (which I never get but had in previous pregnancy). really thought nothing of it though. not like the implantation pain I think I have felt before.
9 dpo - BFN- think about now both boobs a little bit sore but thought nothing.
10 dpo - BFN
11 dpo - BFN (or so I thought) vague dull ache. convinced AF coming. boobs feeling a bit sore. glum.
12 dpo - BFN (tested last thing at night), told hubby it was definitely not happening and both upset. mild dull ache again. boobs bit sore but totally convinced just pre-menstrual symptom. glum.
13 DPO - in the morning, for some weird reason, dug out my BFN from 11dpo, had not thrown it out and there were 2 lines, frantically researched evap lines but this one was def pink not like an evap line! I think I was so upset the line had not appeared right away with the control line and was annoyed I had wasted yet another test, I had not waited long enough. so, quickly did CB digital test and got another BFP! still dull ache. convinced it won't last the day. that was one week ago.

Since then, had mild ache in lower ab on and off, faint pulling feeling and sore boobs on and off but I know I am actively looking for any slight feeling now.

what did we do differently?
didn't hold back on the drinking! had a good xmas, drank without going OTT, relaxed and had fun.
started up my exercise class again.
stopped using pre-seed. seemed to irritate me and affect cm.
genuinely did not get my hopes up, focused on our plan B.
dr has now put me on low dose aspirin and progesterone supplements (since BFP).

That's it, just hoping this one is a healthy bean!

MY BIG BFP!!!

Here is my story. I just wanted to let you guys know that I never lost hope and after a couple months of trying, getting BFNs and crying my eyes out I got my BFP today. I am so happy!!!! I can't believe it!

So I stopped my birth control back in April 2011. Little did I know ( DH and I was not really trying) I got pregnant! But unfortunately that end in miscarriage. I had a D&C Procedure back in August and have been trying since then. It was really rough because everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant. In October I tried the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and this will be my third month using and I am pregnant! I would recommend this monitor because it really narrow down your most fertile days and ovulation before it happens.

Here are my symptoms dpo:
1-7 dpo: a lot of CM and mild cramps, dizzy
8-10 dpo: cm, mild cramps and very thirsty
11-14 dpo: very thirsty, sore breast and dizzy

BFP at 10 DPO After 2 Miscarriages

Some quick background... I'm 36, DH 43. We've been TTC for 13 months. After the first four months we had tests done and found out I was hypothyroid with
Hashimoto's disease (everything else looked great). We got my TSH down and got pregnant in September but miscarried at 6 weeks. Pregnant again in December and miscarried again at 5 weeks even though I was on clexane and progesterone. (on Christmas Eve!!!). I haven't even had a regular cycle in between and today I got a faint BFP (frer) at what I'm estimating is 10 DPO because we weren't trying this month.

My symptoms in retrospect were:
DPO 1-10 creamy CM... I usually dry up about a week after O
DPO5-8 very gassy... not normal for me
DPO 7-10 difficulty sleeping (I usually sleep like a rock) and crappy dreams
DPO 9-10 Mild af like cramps and increased saliva

I'm back on clexane and progesterone and but I'm super scared I'm going to miscarry again.

Happily accepting all wishes for a healthy sticky bean.

BPF After 3 Miscarriages

I am excited to be writing here as I have used this site for guidance and reassurance over the past 13 months TTC.

We have one healthy nearly 2 year old daughter, who we conceived by accident (!) and have since had 2 miscarriages and 1 chemical pregnancy in the past 12 months. This will be the fourth time I have received a positive test in 12 months and therefore I pray with all my heart that this bean sticks and grows.

My symptoms this month were not many: sore/ full breasts from about 14dpo and cramping at 12dpo and 13dpo. I also felt bloated around this time and still do.  I did a test at 11dpo with FRER and got a negative, I thought I was out for certain as I always get positives by this time. The difference this month was just a “gut feeling” from the start. I got a very clear BFP at 14 dpo.

I am now 5 ½ weeks. This time I have been prescribed Clexane and seeing a naturopath in the hope to achieve a healthy baby.

Good luck with all your journeys in TTC. It is a very difficult and emotional time, which I really think only the women who go though it truly understand!

BFP After MC, First Child

Every month when AF arrived I was getting so discouraged. I would go crazy “symptom hunting” during the 2WW only to be let down. Last month was the first time my cycle was a normal length (28 days) since I had an MC at 7 weeks in July. Before that, it ranged from 29 to 37 days, making it very difficult to estimate ovulation and to know when to POAS!

This month I KNEW I ovulated on CD 16, because I felt ovulation cramps on CD 14-15 and had EWCM on day 15. We BD on CD 14 and 16, and used Preseed (without injecting it inside like in the instructions, just rubbing it on (TMI – sorry) :S The only thing that I did differently this month was worry less about TTCing. I drank coffee and alcohol and really just enjoyed the holidays.

My symptoms:
- 1-7 DPO: nothing, just getting over a really bad cold, so trying to eat healthy, lots of veggies, legumes, fruits, full-fat yogurt, green tea, folate and vitamin C.
- 8 DPO: hungry and tired, went to bed early
- 9 DPO: same, felt faint at one point, headache in the afternoon and evening
- 10 DPO: Saturday, got a little tipsy at night, was sure I wasn’t pregnant, chest was sore but I thought it was because I did chin-ups.
- 11 DPO: woke up with such a sore chest that I decided to sneak out of bed and POAS (Clearblue)…immediate plus sign!!!!!! We’re pregnant!!! Brought
the test into bed and showed DH… It’s been 7 months since the MC and he wants this so bad (it’s our first), I could tell he was trying not to get too excited!
- 12 DPO: SO tired, a bit crampy, (on and off) and very sore boobs (feels like I did a million chest-presses, hurts near armpits) headache, constipated
- 13 DPO: same as yesterday! Hope this one sticks!! Good luck to all you TTCers… xox

BFP With Lots of Prayer After MC

I found this site and loved it because it is so much more positive then all the other sites out there. I was looking forward to posting my own BFP story, and here it goes!

DH and I decided to try for #1 in July and got pregnant right away. We were so excited and elated, but miscarried at 8 weeks. I have never felt so devastated before. I was diagnosed with MTHFR. We were a little scared to try again but were encouraged by my OB. We began trying again in November.

CD 10 started BD every day until O.
CD 15 O.
dpo 1 started searching twoweekwait.com for symptoms :) BD every other day just in case.
dpo 2 noticed one nipple was larger then the other. Knew it was to early but tested and got a BFN.
dpo 3 legs hurting (usually happens right before AF), insomnia
dpo 4 insomnia, dry lips
dpo 6 insomnia and dry lips
dpo 7 cramps and fatigue (could be because of all the insomnia!)
dpo 8 faint BFP!!
dpo 10 darker BFP! Insomnia and cramping, went to the Dr for a blood test and it confirmed!
dpo 11 spotting (OMG OMG! Please let me keep this baby!) called the Dr, for another blood test tomorrow for another blood test
dpo 12 another blood test, HCG more then doubled (Thank God!)
DPO 14 Our 1 year wedding anniversary! I cooked a "baby" dinner for DH (baby back ribs, baby carrots, petite potatoes) and made a "bun in the oven" cake to tell him he was going to be a daddy!

We are very excited to be blessed with another baby and we are praying for a sticky bean and healthy baby. Our worst fear is another MC but we are putting our faith in God.

Things that were different this month; I was anointed with oil at church, I started using OPK's, downloaded fertility friend app to keep track of AF, O, and symptoms, and I started drinking hormone free milk.

Good luck to you and baby dust!!!

BFP 8 Months After MC and 2nd Month Using Preseed!

Finally I get to post on here! Just hoping for a successful, healthy pregnancy this time around.

This month I didn't track too many symptoms and I even think I had less symptoms this month than months in the past. I tried to relax this month and not change my daily life during the TWW. Here what I did and the few symptoms I noticed.

Second month using Pre-seed! It's wonderful and I feel that it helped in our trying to conceive. Worked on the second month. I would recommend this to boost conception :)

My bbs didn't get as sore as normal so that didn't stick out too much. About a week before AF was due, I noticed a metal taste in my mouth. I thought maybe I had bit my tongue or something, but knew I hadn't. That struck me as odd.

Another thing was extreme lack of patience. For about 3 days in a row, I had zero patience and was a grouch!! I felt bad taking it out on DH, but now at least he can appreciate that it was all for a good cause :)

My last noticeable symptom was fatigue. I was sleeping 9 hours a night and would still get tired midday like I needed a nap.

I'm thankful to all my friends on this website and the support you've given me throughout this process! I'm praying for a heartbeat in a few weeks and an overall successful pregnancy. EDD Sept 23!
