Finally got my BFP

I haven't told anyone yet because I wanted to share my story with you all first. I got off birth control
in January of 2011 hoping to conceive about 6 months later. After I got off the pill my cycles were
CRAZY. I will never get back on the pill again because of how my body responded to it. Finally one
year later my cycles got under 40 days. I had one cycle that was 33 days in February. After a great
deal of stress and frustration I finally got my BFP today, April 2012.

My secret: I quit using opk's and became completely in tune with my body. I check CM every day
and that did the trick. I knew exactly when to BD without having it line up with my 20 OPK's I had to
use (because my cycle was so long).

Here were my symptoms:

Day 1-6: Not much at all. A twinge here and there, but nothing I hadn't felt before.
Day 7: I had a huge dizzy spell that was completely weird. Right at noon, maybe the time of
Day 8: Headache and neck ache
Day 9: Implantation spotting! Only when I wiped, only 1 time, and a very light pink color.
Day 10-12: Dizziness off and on
Day 13: BFP This site helped me with so many things and I wanted to share my story with you all!

Happy baby making! 

BF(aint)P 15 DPO!

I meant to send this in as soon as we found out (Valentine's Day), but kept putting it off. I
remember the 2WW, though, so I just wanted to add my story in case anyone needed some
encouragement! :)

The main symptom that was unique in my TWW before I got a BFP was cramping in my lower
abdomen starting from 1dpo until about 11dpo. Very abnormal for me so early before AF, so I
knew something was up! Also, I had a dream 2 weeks before O day that a man prayed over me,
touched my womb, and commanded it to be opened. I knew it was the Lord, so it was so amazing
to have the confirmation of a BFP a few weeks later! By the way, I never wrote down all my
symptoms in the 2WW before this cycle. This time, I just knew I was pregnant, so I did in order to
be helpful to those on their 2WW!

Oday - thin, stretchy CM (I'd never seen this before, so it must have just been God's timing for
us!), BD
1dpo - Slight cramping (lower left side), dull thigh pain, dry CM, uterus felt heavy, slight backache
2dpo - Short mild cramps (center and left side down low), pain in belly button, not hungry at all
3dpo - Woke up in morning with sharp/crampy/needle-like pain under my tongue (crazy, never
had that before), not hungry at all, cramps, headache
4dpo - Twinges in uterus
5dpo - Woke up in night time with cramps in my lower back, green loose stool, twinges in uterus
6dpo - BD, splitting headache in AM, twinges in uterus, uterus felt achy like when on my period
7dpo - Heavy uterus, backache, sharp/short headaches
8dpo - BFN, crampy/achy uterus, lower back ache, short/sharp headaches
9dpo - BFN, Heavy uterus, short cramps, tender BB when pressing on them
10dpo - BFN, Tender BBs, cramps, headache, backache
11dpo - BFN, stuffy nose, cramps
12dpo - BFN, no symptoms
13dpo - BFN, Hungry!!
14dpo - BFN, Tired, tender BBs, feel under the weather, creamy white CM
15dpo - FAINT BFP that I have to look hard in the sun to see it (but I'm a pro at negatives at this
point! lol), so I buy a digital and it says PREGNANT! :) 

BFP @ 14 DPO After 7 Months TTC!!!

4dpo- creamy cm
5dpo- creamy cm
6dpo- creamy cm, tired
7dpo- creamy cm, so tired I can barely keep my eyes open
8dpo- same as above
9dpo- slight backache and achy in hip joints and legs. These are normal pms symptoms for me.
10dpo- mild cramps, backaches, and leg cramps in the am. Definite af cramping at night.
11dpo- bbs are sore, tired
12dpo- back aches, tired
13dpo- slightly achy all over, tired
14dpo- backache, headache, mild af type cramps, tired. Tested in AM, negative. Tested at 10pm,
Faint BFP!!!!
15dpo- 3 more BFPs!! All faint but definitely there!! The cramps and leg pains are unreal!! Worst
headache ever!
16dpo- Stronger, but still faint, BFP!!!

The only real difference in symptoms this month is the tiredness. I literally could not keep my
eyes open no matter how much I slept the night before! Other than that, everything else just feels
like pms symptoms! I am even having pms cramps right now @ 16 dpo.

not every stop thinking about it and wanting it or had a relax attitude although I did try,
be encouraged!

4dpo- tender and sore bbs and some nausea
5dpo- same
6dpo-nausea went away but still a little sore

8dp- 2more hpt and got faint line sore breast and nausea
9dpo- 2 more hpt test and def. positive went to a women's center and got a walk in preg. test and
another BFP...

First appt..May 21st and due January 5th!

I didn't think it was possible for it to happen that early and this site def. help me realize it could! 


I had a semi normal period starting on March 25th and it lasted about 5 days and then on Friday
April 20 I started getting such bad heartburn that lasted for 12 hours!! I was slightly nauseous the
week prior and VERY EMOTIONAL I cried because my fiancé wouldn't go to Wal-Mart with me and
because I scored a lower grade than expected in one of my medical courses!!

I decided to take a test on Friday the 20th and I had a slight bfp AF was due today and I was
shocked I waited and took another an hour later and it was another slight line so I took 2 more
First Responses the next day and again POSITIVE and then 3 Clear Blue Digitals and they all said

BABY DUST TO ALL:* *Please say prayers that this baby makes it, and I don't have any issues :) <3 


I still can't believe it!!! DH and I have been "not trying, not preventing" since he came home from
deployment in January. We agreed to start trying next cycle so I was literally waiting for AF to show
so we could get the ball rolling.

My LMP was 3/26/12 I got a positive OPK on 4/12/12. We BD'd on 4/10/12-4/12/12. I personally
think BDing on the days BEFORE ovulation is what did the trick.

The only symptoms I had before getting a BFP were: 6dpo to present- extremely tender breasts
(mainly on the sides) 7-8dpo- dull cramps on the left side. Tested, BFN 9dpo- a few waves of
nausea 10dpo- BFP FRER DH and I are ecstatic. We can't wait to tell our 4yr old (whose been asking
to be a Big Sister for months) that it's REALLY happening. My due date is 12/31/12.


BFP at 10DPO

Can't believe my eyes! We have been trying to conceive baby #2 since January (I stopped
breastfeeding in January as our son was turning 1 in February) so I was unsure how my cycle would
regulate out. This month it worked! Got a positive OPK on Tuesday, April 17th, in the evening so I
assumed would ovulate in the next 24-36 hours. We BD on 4/17 and 4/18.

Here are my symptoms:

1DPO - major creamy white cervical mucus & cramping
2DPO - mild cramping & headache
3-4DPO - nothing
5DPO - mild cramping, super hungry!
6DPO - cramps similar to AF, super hungry!
7DPO - woke up with headache
8DPO - woke up with headache
9DPO - lower back ache, cramping, light spotting
10DPO - took a test (Answer brand which was missing the cap??) and I see a very faint BFP!!!! Took
another test that evening (FIrst Response Rapid Response - meant to buy the First Response Early
Result!! - oops!) BFN!!!
11DPO- BFP with First Response Early Result!!!!!!!

First sono is May 23rd...due date is January 1, 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't believe we will have 2 little
ones a little less than 2 years apart. I couldn't be happier and feel like our family will be complete.
Keep the faith for those of you that haven't seen a BFP yet, I have been posting in "Am I Pregnant"
for what feels like forever! Patience! It will happen! :) :)

Baby dust to all!!!! 

BFP with Odd Symptom

I just got my BFP on 13DPO. So excited to be able to share here! This was our first month really
trying (haven't been preventing for about 6 months) and we only BD once during my fertile period
(1 day before O). I used OPK and preseed.

My main symptom was mild diarrhea, which I've read everywhere isn't really a "symptom." Well it
was for me! I have an iron stomach, so I knew something was up! I experienced it on 9DPO and
10DPO and again today on 13DPO. I also had some mild AF cramps and nausea today and thought
for SURE AF was coming (felt just like before AF). I figured I'd test and get the disappointment over
with before AF showed up (due in two days). And it was a faint BFP! Feeling so blessed. I really hope
it sticks!

Good luck to all you amazing ladies. You don't know how much support I got on here during
my wait. 


Ok so I stalked this site while I waited and I promised myself I would share when I got my BFP, so
here it goes :)

O day- mild breast tenderness (totally normal for me)
1dpo-mild breast tenderness
2dpo- mild bloating, mod breast tenderness, a little moody
3dpo- mild cramps, mod breast tenderness and more moody
4dpo-mild bloating, mod breast tenderness and mod fatigue
5dpo-mild cramps and mod breast tenderness
6dpo-nothing really
7dpo-more breast tenderness
8dpo- more of the same
9dpo- took a test, tiny faint, ghost line...I'm not even sure it's there. I feel some pulling/stretching
in my abdomen but this is #2 so it's more common earlier, called round ligament pain
10dpo- Test, still very faint but has some color now. Tell my DH :). Stronger pulling sensation,
more breast tenderness, very tired
11dpo- BFP!!!!! I'm sure of it this time :) DH gets me flowers :). more pulling, more tenderness,
more fatigue

Now I'm 14dpo and breasts are very tender-near untouchable and I've gone to sleeping in a jogging
bra. In the afternoons I'm exhausted, peeing every hour or so, getting up once a night to pee and
occasional waves of nausea.

Good luck ladies, sticky sticky baby dust!!!
