Trying for a year

Hi all, I've been meaning to share my story and really want to do it before i pop which could be anytime now. I'm 39+weeks pregnant. My husband and I were trying for a baby for a year and were on the verge of going to a fertility specialist when I fell pregnant naturally after 12 months. I am a Christian and I have been crying out to the Lord Jesus Christ for this child. A Christian prophet actually prophesied last Aug 2015 that I would give birth a year from then. His timing has been spot on. I would like to strongly encourage all TTC-ers to turn your eyes upon Jesus and seek Him for your joy. I can honestly say the Lord has blessed us with this baby. We did nothing else differently. There are numerous stories in the Bible of how God has blessed barren women. He knows and understands exactly what we are going through - He sees our pain more than anyone else. Please turn to Him.

Pregnant Following a Chemical Pregnancy Last Month

Hello, I am in shock and disbelief still. July 24 was actually my bleed after getting a very, very, very faint positive bfp a couple days earlier. This faint test appeared at 13 dpo and was negative the next day. My doctor confirmed that my hcg was back to zero and this bleeding ended. So my husband and I decided to try again after careful thought. We did not BD often in August as our work schedules conflicted. We BD on CD 10, CD12, CD14, and CD15. My opk was positive on CD15 and Fertility Friend confirmed my ovulation for CD17. Symptoms: 2DPO: anxiety, fatigue, emotional, increased sex drive 3DPO: creamy cm, hot, fatigue, sore boobs 4DPO: scant cm, boobs achy in the center, faint burning on sides of boobs, increased sex drive 5DPO: sore boobs, fatigue, increased sex drive 6DPO: increased sex drive, creamy cm 7DPO: no cm at all (very dry), cp high, increased sex drive 8DPO: no cm, CP way high (I can't reach it), fatigue, dizzy, increased sex drive, faint positive Wondfo test today 9DPO: no cm, all symptoms GONE, Clear Blue Digital Weeks Estimator "Pregnant 1-2", sharp twinges in pelvic area lower left, sex drive WAY UP!!! Sharp cramp at night and heavy uterus feeling, Beta HCG at 35 10DPO: little creamy cm, heavy uterus like AF is on heavy but it is not on, faint nausea, burning cramps on lower left pelvic area, increased sex drive, no appetite, Wondfo test way darker and Pregnent result on digital CB. 11DPO: faint brown spotting at night when I wipe, CBWE jumped to "Pregnant 2-3", incredibly horny, fatigue, no appetite 12DPO: no cm, heavy uterus, light brown spotting not on underwear, increased sex drive, no appetite 13DPO: HCG beta at 240, light brown spotting, heavy uterus feeling gone, cramps on lower right pelvic region strong, lost 4 pounds since 8DPO:(, increased sex drive 14DPO: backache and anxiety, but appetite is back somewhat 15DPO: no symptoms but winded easily So I have continued to POAS because of my chemical last month. Last month, I only had one faint BFP. This cycle, I have had BFP's everyday 8DPO. I have never been more horny in my life and I never had such a dry luteal phase before. I am usually creamy cm from ovulation through to AF.

Pregnant!

Hi Ladies, Yesterday I got my BFP. Things seemed to align this month. I ov'd right before I had a big holiday, I have been surrounded by babies and preg friends and finally decided to be happy for them and not envious... I had a miscarriage in January. After the m/c I went into panic mode decided to buy every vitamin and fertility aid in the book. Prior to the MC I had regular cycles. I couldn't understand why they were so irregular after the miscarriage. I was ovulating 2x in a month, my cycles were up to 40 days! It was so frustrating. I spoke to a friend who works in the medical field and she mentioned that vitamins can shock your system and cause irregularities! One month after I stopped taking prenatals and a B50complex my cycle was completely normal. OV'd on day 15 and got my BFP. 1-6 DPO- Nothing 7 DPO - Slight breakout 8 DPO - Breast tenderness (1 breast only?) Exhaustion 9 DPO - Weepy, breast tenderness increasing, creamy CM, hot flashes, cramps, no energy at the gym 10 DPO -At the cottage, had a party weekend, breasts seemed huge, mid-back pain, exhaustion, creamy mixed with ewcm cm 11 DPO - 12 DPO - Hot flashes, back pain, breast tenderness/fullness, cramps, frequent urination, blood when I brushed my teeth 13 DPO - AF like cramps, hot flashes, exhaustion, slight brownish spotting only when checking cevx (thought it was for sure AF), got a pregnancy test, thinking once it was negative I'd buy a big bottle of wine and husband and I would plan for next month. I brought the test into work, snuck it into the bathroom and holy it was positive, like really positive. In total shock! My biggest lesson after having a miscarriage is... don't think you can get preg right away. My new doctor says he advises patients to allow at least three months for their hormones to regulate. My initial doctor told me I could get preg right away and it caused me lot of stress. Also, maybe hold off on the vitamins, especially if you never used them before. I think If I was still ODing on vits that I wouldn't be where I am now. I hope it all works out. It is very exciting. Good luck ladies and just know it will happen :)

2.5 Years - Unexplained Infertility. Finally BFP

All, this is so soon I was hesitant to share but I remember all the hard times I've hard times I've had the past 2.5 years so figured whatever I could do to help others as this board has helped me, was important. I got my first BFP in almost 30 months just TWO DAYS AGO. I am literally 4 weeks 5 days right now...I never thought it would happen. Brief history then what I did that might help you: I'm 32 and my husband is 31 (32 next month). TTC for about 2.5 years. Let me preface this with telling you everything I tried before seeing an RE or doing prelim blood work: Vitex Fertilaid Fertilitea At any given point I was on multiple supplements (including but not limited to: Royal Jelly, D3, Milk Thistle, Selenium, Baby Aspirin, Dandelion Root, Zinc and Magnesium, OvaBoost, Melatonin). I charted the whole time (even this cycle) and did ovulation tests the first year or year and a half. After a year, I got prelim blood work from my OB-GYN and then went to see an RE after doing blood work that suggested everything was fine. RE did blood work (all was normal) and sono-histogram (all clear) Month one we did just progesterone support. BFN Month 2 we did Clomid + HCG Trigger + IUI (great follie reading before for all three) Month 3 we did Clomid again + HCG Trigger + IUI Month 4 we did Clomid one more time + HCG Trigger + IUI All BFNs obv. Progesterone made me super depressed. Clomid made me crazy so I decided that until someone had a diagnosis, I refused to keep putting hormones in my body and be told nothing was wrong. Costs thousands and doesn't help state of mind. I finished all of this about 7 months ago and decided to take a break. My break to me meant that I wanted to do whatever I could in my power to figure out what was wrong (I love medical diagnosis and I decided to see this as a challenge to get to the bottom of what was wrong with me). The first thing I did was read "Making Babies" - I highly recommend it to anyone TTC. Mostly because it gets you in touch with your body and makes you more conscientious about what you are eating and how you are treating yourself. The only supplements I stayed on since were: Selenium, Milk Thistle, Royal Jelly and D3. Fast forward to this month. Several years ago I had a Naturopath tell me I seemed to have adrenal fatigue. I looked into it a little over 30 days ago and it sounds like me (I'd bet it sounds like most of you too). I ordered a natural supplement and started taking it - I believe it's called Adrenal Support. I then wondered about the vitamins I took and if my body was absorbing them. I looked into ways to ensure my body was getting the most out of my vitamins and I stumbled across a little know thing called Dr. Willard's water. Before I continue let me say that I have no affiliation with this company at all. I literally found it on a website that lists things that help you absorb nutrients better from food and vitamins. I ordered a bottle of Willard's water (clear version) from Amazon after reading some reviews. It only had about 30 or so reviews but I spoke with a few people in the more rural part of the country through a Facebook great about pet wellness (haha) that swear by it. Not only does it help you absorb nutrients, it also balances your body's PH. As a coffee drinker (and wine drinker) I thought it might be a good idea to try to balance my PH a bit (figuring it might be acidic). I added a little bit of Willard's water to my water (and my dogs' water, haha) for the last 30 days or so. Bam. The only thing I really changed in my diet was I added avocado about 5 of 7 days a week for breakfast (avocado toast). This month I took the adrenal support supplement (my blood pressure was the lowest its been in at least 15 days at 108/68 so I do think it helped), Willard's water (I believe this is the big difference maker) and avocado. I think a lot of fertility medicine focuses on treatment and not enough on diagnosis. Who knows if this baby will stick but I think we often need to look at our own lifestyle and go back to basics (30-40 years ago PH balance was a big thing with conception - hence the advent of baking soda douches prior to OV day). I am just like one of you who spent 29 months getting frustrated because nothing was physically wrong with me but I wasn't having any success. Though it's still super early, I am much more confident that I can get a BFP - something I truly thought would never happen. Before you think you're at a dead end. Think of my situation and know that you need to be your biggest advocate. You know your body and your behaviors and you have to be willing to think critically to find a solution. Unfortunately a doctor will only do so much since they have a lot of people like you who visit. PS I had an appt to see a new RE next week - great timing :)

Symptoms before bfp on 13dpo

Hi there! I'm so excited to share my BFP story and hope it will help some of you in your tww. I'm 33 yrs old and I got my first ever bfp yesterday at 13 dpo on just our second cycle of ttc. It hasn't really sunk in yet particularly for my DP as he was willing to ttc thinking it would take a bit longer I think! For the last few years my once very regular 28 day cycle has been anywhere between 25-33 days. This month we BD on CD 13, 15 and 17. I think I O'd on CD 15 based on cycle averages, so my dpo are estimated. Only real obvious symptom was sore breasts. Normally they get sore anywhere from a week up to a few days before AF but this started earlier and was far more painful. (And for me a lot of bb pain is pretty normal until AF but this was definitely even more so) Nothing more for the first week, until I had a very vivid dream around 9 dpo. Also by 9 dpo I realized that my sex drive was elevated to a noticeable degree. This normally happens around O then goes away but this month it stayed that way. 10 dpo tiredness begins, as does a feeling of muscle fatigue. Legs are muscles feel sore in particular. 11-13 dpo still tired in the afternoons but insomnia in wee hours each night. 12 dpo AF like cramping 13 dpo Instant bfp with fmu, instant bfp with evening diluted urine. All of my symptoms were mild enough to allow me to think they were pms or in my head until yesterday when obvious nausea kicked in. Glad I knew why! I did notice that my usual PMS acne did not show, but I had no obvious change in cm or sense of smell or anything. I hope this helps some of you during your tww!

BFP next month after Chem Preg

Hi lovelies, I shared my bfp story prematurely last month in June at 12dpo right before I experienced a chemical pregnancy. Prior to that I never really knew what one was. Since it was a natural early miscarriage that started the day my period was due like a normal cycle we decided to try again the next month, this month, for our rainbow baby. So you know I had to come and share my symptoms and story to this lovely community that has helped me along each of my twwaits. *Caution this post is long. I may have been symptom spotting but these lead up to my now pregnancy. July dpo leading up to bfp: 7/5/16 5dpo ⦁ sore nipples ⦁ gassy ⦁ tired ⦁ dizzy ⦁ lotiony cm ⦁ hungry ⦁ thirsty ⦁ nausea ⦁ warmer ⦁ irritable ⦁ peeing more often 7/6/16 6dpo ⦁ Sore nipples fading away ⦁ Boobs feeling full ⦁ A little crampy ⦁ Gassy ⦁ Light amount of lotiony cm only when I check ⦁ Moody ⦁ Nausea ⦁ Very hungry ⦁ Sleepy ⦁ Lower back ache ⦁ Thirsty ⦁ Peeing more 7/7/16 7dpo ⦁ Dizzy ⦁ Nausea ⦁ Vivid dreams 7/8/16 8dpo ⦁ MOODY EMOTIONAL ⦁ Wanting to cry ⦁ Light cramps on left side last night ⦁ Sensitive nipples ⦁ Heavy bo0bs ⦁ Low libido ⦁ Hot last night (unusual) ⦁ Chest pain (gas?) ⦁ Crazy dreams ⦁ Headache ⦁ Light cramps right side 7/9/16 9dpo ⦁ Nausea ⦁ Tired ⦁ Light cramping 7/10/16 10dpo BFP!!! ⦁ Backache ⦁ Leg soreness ⦁ Hungry ⦁ Horny ⦁ Crampy ⦁ Tired ⦁ Sore nipps 7/12/16 12dpo ⦁ nausea ⦁ backache ⦁ moody ⦁ full bo0bs ⦁ sore bo0bs ⦁ crampy ⦁ tired!!! ⦁ crazy dreams ⦁ waking up mid night ⦁ metallic taste ⦁ peeing more Now I am currently 4 weeks and 6 days along. I have already missed my period which was due the 16th of this month. Today is the 20th. I am still experiencing many of these symptoms. Especially the full and sore boobs, moodiness, and being tired. I took a digital test after I got the faint positive before my missed period that said pregnant 1-2 weeks. Last week I took another digital test that came up pregnant 2-3 weeks. I am happy that my hcg levels are rising this time unlike last month. I plan to take another test tomorrow at 5 weeks to assure they are rising further, it should say 3+weeks. I will be seeing the doctor soon and scheduling an appointment at 8 weeks or so, whenever they can get me in. I am happy but still have a hard time taking in the fact that I am actually pregnant. I have only told my fiance of course, two friends, and my mom. I do not plan on telling others until things are looking safe and secure. Although we never broke the news of the chemical pregnancy to our extended family who lives out of the state. Soo to avoid explaining a loss I plan on telling them my due date changed.

1 year off the pill. 5 months trying BFP!!!

Well since me and my DP decided to start trying 5 months ago I had taken to the Internet googling every symptom (as ridiculous as some where) during my tww. And then I found this site a few months ago and hearing everyone's BFP stories made me so happy and hopeful. So I vowed to give mine too when it happened for me. So some months I hardly had any symptoms and others I had loads, even more than I did this month getting my BFP! But roughly here goes, I used clear blue ovulation. Had static smiley and bedd that night. 1-3 days past ovulation just slight cramps and lower back pain. 4-10 I had bad hay fever/cold that just woudntshift despite taking anti-histamines etc. 11-14 boobs slightly tender and a little heavy but iv had way worse before AF arrived in past. My skin broke out in spots here too. Such a pain. 15dpo period 1 day late. Lower Back pain. Peed on Ovulation stick and was positive. I'd read this can be a BFP so bought a pregnancy test and pretty clear line! So happy. Hope this little bean sticks and wish all of you the best of baby dust Lindsey 29 baby no1

5+ years ttc with PCOS BFP+++Conceived naturally with diet change!

This will be long so if you just want symptoms DPO then scroll down to the bottom. I wrote this for my PCOS lady's because i want us all to cure are PCOS, and I have found out how. Cleared my skin, lessen excess hair, regulated periods, induced ovulation, and weight loss all without medication, or supplements. I have PCOS, and I was not ovulating on my own. I did not want to take metformin and clomid. After a lot of research I found that pcos is caused by insulin resistance, which is in turn is caused by too much sugar, and carbohydrates in the diet. Which is why metformin helps women conceive by increasing insulin sensitivity, which allows your hormones to normalize. On 12/05/15 I started the Ketogenic Diet. It is Low carb, high fat, moderate protein. Basically all you eat is Veggies, meat, and small amounts of dairy, and nuts. No sugar, no grains, no starchy, veggies, no fruit! At the same time i tracked my calories on an app so as to not go over 2000 cals a day. So far i have lost 40lbs, but this was not my goal pregnacy was. with in 2 weeks of starting this diet, i got my period for the first time in 6 months. I then had 3 consecutive 28 day cycles, but i do not believe i was ovulating because i had no fertile cm, negative opks, and light bleeding for my period. In MAY 2016 i got my first positive OPKS, EWCM, ovulation pains, followed by heavy, crampy 6 day period. Yay!!! I'm ovulatating! bfn cycles, but progress :) My cycles where i actually ovulated became longer 39 dayish cycles. I feel if I ate too many carbs, my ovulation would delay. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well this cycle, was a long one. I ovulated on the fourth of July Cycle day 26. positive opks, 8 days of ewcm, lots of right sided cramps the 3rd, and 4th. 1DPO: Sore Nipples, and fronts of breast, no side breast pain. Had this the whole TTW 2DPO: Sore breasts 3DPO: right ovary cramping, sore breasts 4DPO:sore breasts 5DPO: Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 7DPO: gas bubbles in tummy, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 8DPO: more gas bubbles, but no gas, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 1 hour, sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 9DPO: diarrhea in morning,Tired, occasional light cramps, almost like I'm imagining them. like uterine contractions after an orgasm. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 10DPO:diarrhea in morning, light cramps only when i standup. I would stand up, walk a few feet and would be hit with cramps in the center of my uterus, would last 5 seconds or so, and i would not cramp again until i sat, and then stood up again. Sore Breasts -BFN WONDFO 11DPO:diarrhea in morning, Same cramps but getting stronger and more uncomfortable. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO almost think i see something, but toss it. 12DPO: Same intense cramps. consitpation, tested with FMU saw a line so light, i thought it was an evap, i couldn't capture it in a picture. but it made my wonder. Tested on another WONDFO in afternoon on 4 hour hold very Faint BFP, but i see color! dip Frer in same urine Sample and a faint pink line there as well!!! 13DPO: same cramps, but random, not just when i stand. Boobs are not as sore. slight nausea. Positive Clear blue digital!!! 3 weeks 6 days pregnant! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I account my pregnancy 100% to the ketogenic diet, if i do not count my carbs, and my calories i do not ovulate. It took me 7 months from starting this diet to convenience after 5 years of nothing. If you have PCOS try it, you will see vast improvements. I pray this bean is a sticky one! Baby dust to all!!!

BFP after 3 years of trying with OvaBoost and FertilAid

I am so excited to finally be able to say I got my BFP! After three years of trying, we were considering fertility treatments, but I am happily 6+4 weeks right now. Last month I started taking OvaBoost and FertilAid, and this month - boom! I didn't even consider this month as an option. My SO has been prepping to go out of town for 3 months for work, I traveled several times for my job, we had been busy planning and packing and, in general, stressing out. Our opportunities to dtd were limited, and I wasn't even keeping track of my temps and o strips. I was mentally gearing up for another 4 months of no BFP. I was due to start the day after he left, which made my pouting and (ridiculous) emotional fits before he left totally typical of my PMS. However, the day after he left, I left for my run at 5am, like always, and there was a huge rainbow across the trail I run. It occurred to me that I hadn't started, I POS, and sure enough! BFP! This one really is our little rainbow baby! My symptoms: Absolutely none. Had I been paying attention, that would've been my biggest symptom. I didn't have ANY of my typical PMS symptoms. No bloating, no insane fits of over eating, no exhaustion. Even my CM was dry (and still is!). I NEVER have breast tenderness with my period, and I did notice a bit of nipple sensitivity when we dtd three nights before he left, which would have been about 10dpo. Otherwise, not a single thing. All of those years spent convincing myself I felt every possible symptom at every possible dpo, and nothing when it really happened. To all you stressed out, emotionally exhausted symptom spotters - it really CAN happen with absolutely no warning! Hoping this little bun stays nice a sticky in the oven. We are both over the moon! ~*love and baby dust to all!*~
