BFP - clear blue digital - first time momma!

So excited to be posting a bfp story - these stories really kept me going through the last 6 months of TTC!

I am 27 and partner 44 - this will be our first baby together! I work away a lot so BD'ing at the right time has been tricky!

This is the first cycle that I relaxed, stopped using Ovia and taking supplements - I did this after reading so many bfp stories where the couple had both just relaxed and let it happen - which thankfully worked for me too :) I actually assumed we had BD at the wrong time so thought i was out this month!

Cycle length - 29 days
Last period start date - 27 June 2017

CD 10 - EWCM
CD 11 - EWCM - BD
CD 12 - BD ( i think I ovulated this day because EWCM had disappeared by lunchtime)
1dpo - BD
2-4dpo - nothing. I had lotiony white CM which seemed a little stickier than usual but not totally out of the ordinary for me
5dpo - woke up with a cold sore and a really bad mouth ulcer. I haven't had a cold sore in over a year and usually get them when run down. Odd because I don't feel unwell or especially tired. This was my first suspicion.
6dpo - woke up with another cold sore!! Two back to back!
7dpo - bloated. Lotiony white cm
8dpo - I was bloated and a bit gassy but this is not unusual for me before period. cm remained lotiony white - cramps lower right lasting only 30seconds or so (implantation?)
9dpo - Sore boobs - I always get sore boobs before period but oddly they were only sore down the sides?! Felt faint during gym class at lunchtime
10dpo - v sore boobs and they felt fuller in my bra. Felt a little faint on train into work
11dpo - Woke up at 5am wide awake and remembered I had a digi left from last cycle annnnd BFP - Pregnant 1-2weeks! waaaa so incredible to see those words!!!!!

Still in shock and not sure what to do with myself! Good luck to all TTC and hang in there!!!

WE DID IT

A little about me I'm 30 & my BF Is 28 I have 3 kiddos and he has none. I don't remember trying with the others ones. My guy has always wanted a kid and I thought I was done but here I am. I've read mostly all of your stories so I figured I would put what I've experienced this cycle

I have a 29 day cycle. I feel like I ovulated around cycle day 13 or 14 but not sure because I wasn't charting I just felt cramps.
Cd14 1dpo I bd with my guy
Cd15 bd 2dpo bd with my guy a lot that day. I was having cramps and bad mood swings
3dpo I was having cramps, some sore bbs off and on. Mostly around my nips
4dpo tender bb and some nausea
5 dpo watery discharge, cramps, nausea
6dpo cramps no discharge. I feel twinges in my lower abdomen on the right side.I started getting soft bowels.
7 dpo nothing at all
8 dpo nothing I took a test I thought it said negative but looked at it hours later it said positive. I thought it was a Evap line. DT test said bfn
9 dpo fatigue and dizziness almost passed out at walmart. Took another test faint positive
10dpo woke up with heartburn. I had a vivid dream about space like a shuttle falling right in front of my house. Took test with fmu faint positive. I took equate test 5 mins ago bfp no more faint lines. Still heartburn and I'm tired.
Baby dust to all you ladies it's not over yet

Symptoms before BFP - I say it's possible!

I've been reading about having symptoms before implantation lately and there are a great deal of people who say it's all in the head.

I want to share my story to say it's not.

My first pregnancy happened a couple of years ago. DH and I haven't been TTC nor did we think about having a baby in general at that time. We usually used protection but there's been that one time we didn't.

I was totally oblivious to ovulation, symptoms and the possibility of getting pregnant didn't cross my mind (how are the odds with one slip?).

So we DTD and in the very early morning hours after I woke up terribly nauseated. Could've been many reasons but what struck me as odd was, that as soon as I threw up it completely vanished. I felt absolutely normal after - that never happened to me before.

The following days I felt strange (it's been 3 or 4 years so I don't recall everything that stood out to me). I googled all the stuff that felt odd to me (like suddenly getting numb fingertips) and nearly everything came up with "early pregnancy symptom".

So I bought a test, which came up negative.

Another couple of days go by and I still feel strange. The thought of being possibly pregnant despite a negative test (again, I had no clue whatsoever about implantation, test sensitivity etc etc). So I went to the ob/gyn.
Nothing despite the uterine lining thickening- just what it is supposed to do.

Another 2 or 3 days pass and against better knowledge (come on, how can you pregnant if the doc says you aren't?) with some more odd stuff happening to my body I buy another test after work.

I remember I tripped and fell what hadn't happened to me since I was a kid!

The next day the test came up positive - just very light.

I went to another ob/gyn and they wrote 4+5 (not sure about the second number, couldve been 3) on the certificate.

So this unfolded between BD and a positive test to someone who never thought about and or considered pregnancy.
To me it means you very well can know/ have symptoms before you're scientifically are supposed to be.

Unfortunately I lost this one after 9 weeks but I am proud mom to my 2yo DS.

BFP after 13 LONG YEARS & PCOS and RA

Well, to say that God has a sense of humor doesn't quite explain it. My husband and I TTC for 10 long years. We gave up, we adopted and then we became foster parents and adopted again. We were done. We got old. Life was good. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 32. I am not overweight and do not have the normal symptoms of it. I have a period regularly but I stopped tracking ovulation a long time ago. I was also diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 25 but have been in remission for the past 5 years or so. Like I said, we weren't trying. I just turned 36 for crying out loud!! And then, it happened. I missed my period. I then started to have mild cramping that would come and go. Then, I started crying at stupid stuff. And then, I forgot the code to get into my kid's daycare and I locked myself out of my own office. But nothing made me think for sure I was pregnant. But after being two weeks late, I decided I would rather have peace of mind than not know so I bought a stick. Those sticks were a hard part of my past and something that I didn't want to look at and at the most, surely didn't want to pee on ever again. But in my head, I was eliminating the possibility of pregnancy to figure out what the REAL problem was. And then came the PREGNANT sign. Within 2 long minutes, there it was. Something I waited for for 13 YEARS! God sure is funny but He never fails to have HIS perfect timing. So here I am, 6 weeks along. Pray for a sticky bean. I realize my chances of a miscarriage are high but I have an indescribable peace. But I waited so long to post here and I finally get to say, for those of you waiting and wishing, keep trying. Don't give up. Have sex in the morning b/c that's about all I can remember that we did differently. And I will be praying for you ladies out there in the dreaded 2 week wait. Love to everyone!

5 years - 1st BFP ever naturally!!! Was told only way was through IVF!!!

Me: 36, SO: 39

Tried everything under the sun.... temping, opks, tracking through app, all vitamins, maca root, castor oil packs, acupuncture, preseed, fertilaid, ovaboost, soft cups, serrapeptase, royal jelly, eating organic, giving up caffeine, no dairy, no soy, no gluten, worked out... NOTHING!!! I am very regular and can usually feel ovulation and AF comes 15 days to the T after ovulation. And every month for 5 years AF showed it's ugly face! Got an HSG 3yrs ago and was told my right tube was blocked but left wide open. Nothing. Finally went to fertility specialist Nov of 2016. Was told my only option was IVF. Still.... I tried clomid and trigger shots for 3 months. Nothing. Decided we didn't want to go the IVF route but my insirance covers 6 rounds of iui. Dr was not very convinced it would work and that did not work for me. Decided to take a break but before I stopped I asked for another HSG. Got the HSG on CD 7 (Jun 10)... right tube still blocked and now left tube is slightly enlarged. Dr says only option is IVF. This made me very sad. Birthday a week later so we DTD. 2 weeks later... all the symptoms of AF coming... cramps, sore boobs, craving sweets... but no AF. Went away for the weekend and drank. Come home and still no AF! Wth!! Take a test that I had from my many stark white BFNs... and immediately 2 lines!!! Go to buy digitals.... "PREGNANT"!!! My first BFP in 5yrs of trying!!!!! God is so good. Screw these doctors that just try to push you into spending unneccesary money!!! Ladies.... I was/am just like you!!!! When it is your time, it is YOUR time!!!! Still need to go to doctor to get blood work! But the positive thing is.... I am able to get pregnant!!! Please pray for us and our little bean!! Baby dust to all!!!

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!

Bfp at 10dpo

1-4dpo nothing out of the ordinary. Boobs hurt immediately but this is normal.
5dpo-chills and hot flashes
6dpo-very very chilly even though it's 90+ outside. Holy constipation!! I am very regular and by this day my bowels seemed to have stopped up. CM is watery and creamy mixture but not very much
7dpo-still constipated and very painful gas like cramps. Feel dry cm. Sciatic pain on my whole left side.
8dpo-boobs hurt a lot but come in waves. Still constipated. Finally poop and it's so painful! Feel dry cm. Light light cramps but still feel like gas cramps.
9dpo-boob pain subsides by the evening. Feel SO hot and SO cold and every hour it changes. ANXIOUS! I have an anxiety disorder. Sciatic pain comes back but my whole left side is tingly. Burping and heartburn starts.
Very light light cramps which had be wonder... it felt like they radiated like a UTI al the way up to my stomach, but ever so slight like I was imagining things
10dpo-boob pain has almost gone away.. what!? Burping and heartburn is awful, and I haven't eaten anything spicy. Heartburn induced nausea(or so I thought at the time). Bloated as heck!!! Burping non stop.
Couldn't test with FMU, too nervous.
SMU-took a FR Digital, a +YES with a clock showed up, I was shattered after reading that it meant a defective test.
3pm urine with 2 hour hold- BFP!!!! On a FRER I've never ever seen a 2nd line(only Evans and imaginary) so this was a clear clear pink second line.
10dpo night- had weird cramps that radiated from my groin to my back. Nothing like af cramps. Still concerning but trying not to worry!

Do to OH's surgery schedule(he's a resident) we only Bd'd ONCE!!! can you believe how lucky we got after 4+ years of trying and this time totally unassisted?

Natural BFP at 43

I was lurking and promising myself like others that if successful I would share what I did to get here.

I conceived my DS at 39 with no issue and was 40 when he was born. I knew though that trying for a second would be a very uncertain road at my age. Looking back we were really lucky to conceive after only about 16 months of concerted effort. During that time I had two failed IVF cycles and travelled long haul for work away from my husband for seven 3 week trips and missed quite a few opportunities making the outcome even luckier, statistically speaking.

I also trawled the internet, consulted a snake oil naturopath, charted, and took a buttload of supplements to help regulate my cycle. These included vitamins B (group) C, D, E (tocotrienols as well as tocopherols), magnesium myo-inositol, alpha lipoic acid, vitex, ubiquinol and red maca. I also ate two eggs for breakfast every day (gross!). I also cut out all alcohol and caffeine and soy and cold drinks and gee life was dull. As I added more and more to the daily mix it was interesting to see the effects. My BBT became much more stable and predictable and easier to map to my ovulation symptoms. My luteal phase lengthened slightly from 7or 8 days to 9 or 10. The follicular phase actually lengthened, annoyingly. The long weeks of jet lag from the 10 hour time differences made it harder too but I doubt they had much impact in the end. In the end I would put my money on the ubiquinol (500mg daily before tapering down to 200mg per day) and the red maca. Gross but I think that's what did it. A small disclaimer that I had a high AMH and low FSH at 42, and am in good physical shape.

BFP Symptoms were same as all the BFN cycles (headaches, cramps, bloating) except for tender nipples from 6DPO, same as other pregnancy. Squinter BFP on IC at 11DPO when temps stayed up. Lines gradually got stronger then two strong lines 13DPO on FRER.

Am now at 35 weeks and 4 days after a complication-free pregnancy. Tired and looking forward to welcoming LO to the outside not long before I turn 44.

Wishing all of you the best of luck.

BFP at 5 weeks and 6 days PCOS

Wow! Where do I start lol!!

This BFP wasn't planned and I'm still in shock!

I have pcos so you can imagine what a relief it is but at the same time I know when I ovulate because I control my diet and take nutritional stuff which has helped me lose weight and regulate my periods.. and I was off by a couple days last month.. I've only got back with my ex We was together 7 years ago and we've only been together for a couple of months but everything is mixed emotions atm.

I used to stalk this page when me and my last partner was trying, didn't get pregnant once in that relationship lol, so you can imagine how excited I am to be posting my own BFP story.

Let's get to the symptoms :)

For starters I didn't even know I was pregnant I thought I was just having a funny month but it got to it being 2 weeks late.

I had my usual Pms symptoms except by night sweats I get 3/4 nights before my period starts which never happened and this always happened.

I do normally get metal mouth before O and just before my period but this time the metal mouth was constant.

I stared getting twinges and cramps on my left near ovary and then it made its way to the middle and now it's all over but I only get them about 4 times a day and lasts 1 min.

So today I am 6 weeks and found out yesterday.
2 weeks ago I started to get hungry literally after eating my dinner is was ridiculous but it's calmed a bit now ha!

My emotions have been everywhere my partner is getting the brunt of it poor man.

My boobs have only started to become super sore over this week and my nipples!!

When me and my partner was having sexy time he said to me why is the stuff inside you like glue lol.

Insomnia has become apparent over the PST few nights now.

I can smell a McDonald's from miles away lmao!

I've started to get hot and sweaty over the past few days too.

Sorry everything's not in order, I haven't wrote anything down and I'm literally going off the top of my head..

I'll add more symptoms when I get more haha

Good luck for all of you twoweekwaiters x

Ps.. get a clear blue, those strip cheap tests have hardly any dye in them sometimes... the strip one was taken today xx
