BFP with FET (Male Factor/after Miscarriage)

Here's mine too -

Started IVF 2002 due to MF (at the time) very low sperm count. Had been trying other ways for 2 years.

Started IVF Sept 02
down reg included 225mls of purgon
At EPU collected 23 eggs - 10 fertilised via ICSI and we lost 1 during defrosting. I also had mild hypo-stim.

1st transfer PFP but lost preg at 8 weeks
2nd Transfer FET PFP but again No's didnt rise wait
to mc at 6 weeks.

DH & I are sent away to have blood test for M/C genetic problems etc - Nothing found. However as there seemed to be a problem with implantation it was recommended that I try baby asprin and my naturapath recommended vitex.

3rd Trans FET Start taking Vitex and Cardaprin (Baby
asprin). BFP and DS born 2/1/04

4th Tran FET BFN new nurse who doesnt believe me
that I only "o" within a period of 3
hours and Seraket doesnt work. No
asprin or Vitex.

5th Tran FET BFP again I took baby asprin but I
stopped taking it around 8 weeks as I
kept forgetting and at my 2nd U/S the
baby's H/B had stopped two days
before the U/S at 10 1/2 weeks. I dont
know if its related.

Currently stimming again with the same protocol but we are doing PGD for the m/c.

I feel in my heart that the Vitex and baby asprin helped me to achieve a PFP with DS transfer.

Never rule out FETs as you can see they do work.

BFP with Baby #3 (after 3 miscarriages)

DH and I have been ttc#3 for several months now. We m/c back in May, then again on August 31 and after so, dh made the ultimate decision. He did NOT want to TTC anymore for a while. I was heartbroken. We screamed and fought LITERALLY for the first time in our marraige. I did want to give up... not yet. We agreed (while I was still miscarrying) that we would hold off til Christmas.

Each of my pregnancies (all 6) had been products of charting, temping and my best friend and worst enemy- CLOMID. Of 6 pregnancies, I had 2 daughters- Brianna, and Gracie. So this month, I did not chart, temp, take clomid, nor test with opks.

AF usually shows up 26-28 days like clockwork, even after miscarraiges. So days before CD 26 I started testing with FMU *just in case* I wasn't really expecting much. On CD 25 (which was September 25th) I got a BFP. I was in SHOCK. I had NEVER EVER gotton pregnant without Clomid's help. I scanned my hpt and asked all of my online friends to PLEASE tell me if it was an evap line or a Bfp. Most agreed, it was a BFP. I ran out to walgreens and got a digital test. Bingo- Pregnant :-)

So early on cd26- the day AF was due I called my OB who sent me straight to the lab. I got my results back just before 6pm at night. My quant. beta was at 128 :-) I am not sure how many dpo I was, but from previous charts my Ob was thinking 12 or so. So 128 was a great number! As I write this to you, it is CD27... my first U/S will be around 7 weeks on October 11th. I will be due June 7, 2006 :-) Talk about a wonderful cycle.

BFP Naturally after Miscarriage

Hi! My name is Amanda and I can't tell you how happy I am to be writing this. I got my BFP last week after 9 months of TTC. We were starting to think it wasn't going to happen. In March of 2005 dh and I lost a baby girl to miscarriage at 14 weeks of pregnancy and it just devistated us beyond words. We decided to start TTC again ASAP and when it didn't happen within the first few months I started trying everything I could think of; OPK's, temping & charting, pre-seed....etc. Every month I was so dissapointed, sometimes to tears.

Last Friday I was having some bad anxiety and didn't know why. Dh and I went to dinner and in the car on the way there I was feeling slightly nausiated and asked dh on a whim if we could stop off and buy a cheap HPT. I wanted to have wine with dinner, and assuming that this month would be another let down, I just figured I'd take the HPT to clear my conscience about drinking. I actually took the test in the bathroom before drinking the wine I had already ordered and to my astonishment I got a light, but very-there, BFP!!!!

I came out of the bathroom shaking like a leaf and without saying a word slid my wine glass over to dh. His eyes perked up and I said, "If this test is right, I'm pregnant!" We were both in total shock. We've taken more tests since the and they were all positive....one I took this Wednesday was VERY dark positive. I am so excited and am hoping and praying that this pregnancy goes well.

What I did differently this month was not chart, temp, OPK or even pay attention to what cycle day it was. Dh and I bd alot, but I honestly didn't have TTC in my head when we did. I was even discussing with one of my friends that I should get put on birth control so getting pg wouldn't even be a possibility so I could get it out of my head all together. Basically I didn't "try" at all for the first time in 9 months and we got pg. Go figure.

I had no out of the ordinary syptoms when I first got my BFP, other than the very slight (almost like car-sickness) nausia. I have it all now...sore BBS, headaches, CP is high and soft, crampiness, and frequent nausia. I never thought I could be so happy to have all that going on :).

To all of you TTC....GOOD LUCK!!! It'll probably happen when you least expect it, so don't give up!

BFP after Miscarriage/D&C at 10 weeks

I m/c in Aug 05. We were not trying to get preg because my daughter was only 11 months old when we conceived in June. I was on b/c and still nursing my daughter until July when we found out we were preg. We were so very excited until I started spotting in Aug. Four days after the spotting I had a D&C. I was at 10 weeks and our baby did not have a heartbeat. We decided to start trying again right away with the permission and suggestion of our doctor. At my follow up appointment, he said eh expected to see us before Christmas. I had my first period on Sept 18. I was a little disappointed, but didn't really figure I would conceive right away. Well I expected my next period on Oct 16. I tested on Oct 13 and again on Oct 15. 11 dpo and 13 dpo. I got a neg on 11 dpo and a bfp on 13 dpo. at 14 dpo I had some spotting when I wiped. Dr said it was probably because it was the day I was due to start my period but he had me come in for blood tests. 15 dpo my hCG levels were at 291. 2 1/2 days later at about 18 dpo, they were at 862! The doctor was very pleased. I am praying everyday that we get to keep this little baby. I miss the other one so bad. It is funny how you love something so much before you ever even meet them....

BFP after Miscarriage

YIPPIE!!! DH and I are pregnant - We NEVER thought it would happen this month!
I tested with EPT in Cracker Barrel's bathroom because I got a faint line with First Response...

I had wrapped Christmas presents with little gifts to let our family know that we were pregnant... we were going to take them to Charlotte in Jan this year to celebrate... we lost the baby. And I haven't seen my family since, until this weekend when we tested - I gave them the presents. We were at the beach for 3 days before they opened the gifts - finally they did after we knew I was pg. They got the 'New Uncle & New Aunt' buttons from our last little angel who is in heaven now!!! I FORGOT those were in the presents!! It was WILD!! Also there was a great grandmother pin in her gift - and that was also from the last baby - I wrapped this in late Dec and was so emotional about the mc/ I completely forgot!! So we have a pretty good feeling about this one! What are the odds they would open the gifts the same day I tested and it be TRUE!!! that we are pg again!! We are so thankful that we were with family and got to share this news... but will take it very slow until we get to 12 weeks to be really happy!!

Baby dust to us all!

BFP with Clomid/IUI, after Miscarriage

After conceiving easily this past summer, but then sadly miscarrying at 10 weeks in October, my husband and I struggled to get pregnant a second time. After a few months of trying I went an RE who put me on Clomid. It worked the first time!

I was on my frist round of Clomid (100 mg day 3 & 4 and 50 Mg days 5- 7) and had an IUI on 15 DPO (because my cm was too thick), the day I Ovulated.

I am delighted to finally be able to share my symptoms with you after spending many months reading everybody else's!

4 DPO/DPIUI - sharp, stabbing pain in left side, sizeable amount of CM
5 DPO/IUI - sharp stabbing pains in left and right side, sizeable amount of CM
6 DPO/IUI - stabbing pains continued alternately on both sides, they were like sharp cramps, still a lot of CM
7 DPO/IUI - temp shot from about 97.8 - 98.6, still sharp pains, especially when I moved a lot for example: bending over to put my shoes on, still more CM than usual, temp staying around 98.6
8 DPO/IUI - still had the pains, but now they were dull and crampy and not as often, still a decent amount of CM, it was kind of thick and chunky with a yellowish tint, temp still lingering around 98.6
9 DPO/IUI - still had the pains, but fewer of them, still had decent amount of CM, temp still around 98.6
10 DPO/IUI Lingering pains, fewer and farther between, temp still at 98.6, less CM, but still obviously there... broke down and took a test - BFN, could not have been more negative
11 DPO/IUI Woke up with terrible headache behind my right eye. It lasted all day, I never get headaches, so I thought maybe perhaps this is a sign, still had the cramps but now they were dull, temp still at 98.6
12 DPO/IUI tested again, again BFN, temp still right around 98.6, not as much cm, felt like I was getting my period, crampy and crying all day
13 DPO/IUI Woke up and temped 98.6... BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't super dark but it was a shade darker than faint. It was definitely there, not as much cm today, very tired, not very crampy, so happy that no matter how much pain I had I wouldn't have been able to feel it
14 DPO/IUI Super bright BFP this morning, temp still at 98.6, went to dr who confirmed it - HCG 160, Progesterone: 26. The nurse said those numbers are wonderful!!!

I say a prayer everynight that this pregnancy ends on a happier note than the last and I spread baby dust and best wishes to you all!

BFP with 50mg Clomid, cd 5-9

I heard you were looking for BFP stories while taking clomid so here's mine TTC#2, 1st month 50 mg cd 5-9!!

We were TTC#2. It took us five years to conceive the first time, and sadly I miscarried at 10 weeks. I had been on and off clomid that whole time. Well, five months after the miscarriage we concieved DD!!!
Since it took us soo long to get DD here, we decided not to use BCP. Well, after she turned 14 months and I had only had one period, I thought I would try the clomid route again. I just had a feeling that I would get pregnant right away, but did want to jinx anything.

Now, I know it is technically impossible to have any symptoms before implantation occurs, I swear I started having symptoms earlier then that. Maybe it was just my body being prepped or perhaps s/e from clomid, who knows?? Here they are:

1DPO Migraine (VERY unusual for me)
2-8DPO VERY hungry, empty pit in my stomach, slight nausea
2-8DPO Slight headaches all the time
3-5DPO Sore throat, runny nose (thought it was allergies)
5-8 DPO AF like cramping sometimes general sometimes specific to one area
6-7DPO Yellow (snot-like sorry TMI), CM
6-8 DPO SLIGHTLY tender bbs, mostly on the sides and nipples
9 DPO cramping increases, then goes away
10PO I decided to test...I thought I saw a faint line
11DPO tested again....a little bit darker
12 DPO DEFINITE BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13-15 DPO cramping returns, I think AF is coming. It still hasn't completely gone away(21DPO)

I am 21 DPO still hungry all the time and pretty tired. My bbs aren't very sore....still mainly just the nipples and under my armpits???!! I'm still having a lot of creamy CM and sometimes the yellow cm. I am being cautiously optimistic that this one will stick!!!
