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.

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

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!*~

BFP 9 DPO clearblue digital

I had my Nexplanon implant removed Dec 31st 2015. We've been ttc since. 7 months now. My cycles were 50 days until my June cycle came which was 31 days. I also stopped breastfeeding June 16 during my last period. I follow two apps but Fertility Friend was the accurate one. I started taking ovulation test at 12 days past my last cycle and on July 1st it was positive. I even had ovulation cramps and the ideal discharge. Here are my daily DPO symptoms:

1DPO-5DPO none
6DPO- extreme fatigue and cramps in the evening. BFN wondfo
7DPO-extreme fatigue, cramps still, zero appetite
8DPO- still fatigued but cramps stopped mid morning and BFN wondfo. All night I had terrible dreams and super dizzy
9DPO-same symptoms so I took 2 wondfos and they both were super faint so I thought what the heck. Why not take a digital. It comes with 3 test so if it's negative I'll take more later on. Well I got a BFP. Best feeling ever. I used afternoon urine too. Like I had just peed and then had to push hard to pee enough for the clearblue digital lol.

All I can say is if you have an implant removed it def takes 6 months to become regular. I also think not breastfeeding helped a lot. I'm 25 and this is my second. Hoping it sticks!!! This site helped me stay positive this whole time. Thank you to everyone.

1st Cycle, Not Trying, *Immediately* Post IUD

Let me start out by apologizing to all trying and working so hard at TTC. I was not. This will be #3 for me...all unexpected joys.

LMP - 6/12/16
6/24 - IUD Removal. Had Paragard for 3.5 years, no real issues, but cramping with saucy time, so decided to do more natural methods. I'm also assuming this was OV day. I figured if its going to happen from 5 days ish prior, ONCE, it would..oh boy..
1 DPO - 6 DPO: Not much. EWCM that tapered away.
7 DPO - Major, raging headache. Took nap.
8 DPO - 13 DPO: Terrible yellow green snotty discharge. Not tons, but enough for sure. Mild cramping. Boobs feel...strange. Fuller.
14 DPO: No AF, due today. BFP @ 8:30pm on Walmart 88 cent; BFP confirmation @ 10:00pm on Clearblue Digital.

Good luck to all you guys!

First ever BFP 11dpo!!! Here's my symptoms

This is our 4th month TTC and the first month we used preseed. My symptoms this month that made me suspect pregnancy was that I actually felt fine. Normally a few days before aunt flow I get cramps and mood swings. The only thing I found odd was that all through the TWW I found myself getting a bit carsick when I was behind the wheel. I also got a heat rash between my BB's 2 days before a positive pregnancy test after going for a 2 mile walk. I have never had a heat rash before so that made me a bit suspicious. Today was my first BFP so i took 3 tests and all had clear positives. Period isn't late until Wednesday, so I am going to test each morning to make sure the line still shows up.

BFP 11 DPO- NO sore boobs and NO cm!

Hello ladies!

During my TWW I was constantly on this board! I loved reading all of your stories, they really helped me pass the time and feel connected to other women who were feeling all of the same things I am. DH is 27 and I’m 25, we were just married in November of 2015. We were using protection up until April 2016 when we decided to NTNP. I was SO naïve to think, “oh we just won’t use protection and I’ll get pregnant, that’s how it works right?” HA! When I got my period in April I was SHOCKED! Anyway, I’ve been tracking my period since I was 16 years old, I have CLOCKWORK regular cycles. In May I explained to DH how tracking your cycle works, and we BD’d everyday around the day I THOUGHT I ovulated…but during the TWW I just knew I wasn’t pregnant. I just felt NOTHING and I knew it didn’t happen. I was shocked! I thought FOR SURE we had done it that month. So, now comes June…I ALWAYS have very noticeable CM throughout my cycle. And I noticed that the days I had EWCM weren’t matching up with the days my Period Diary app told me I was ovulating…so I decided to bite the bullet and buy some Clearblue digital OPK’s. WELL my app told me I was ovulating on the 11th…turns out I didn’t even get a positive OPK till the 14th. I’m counting ovulation day as June 15th. Which makes total sense as to why I didn’t get a BFP in May, I had the days all wrong…lesson learned BUY THE OPK’S EVEN IF YOU HAVE CLOCKWORK CYCLES!! Now for the fun part…

May 31st-June 4th – Period

June 5th – BD

June 8th – BD

June 12th-14th – BD everyday, Headaches & tons of EWCM—all normal O symptoms for me.

** June 14th Positive OPK (solid smiley face) at 8:00 in the morning and it was negative by that evening so I’m counting June 15th as O day…did not BD that night (6/15) because DH wasn’t feeling well.

O day- Infertile, chunky gross looking CM. (Ew, I know TMI but I wanted to know all of these things during the TWW!)

1 DPO- Okay this is weird and SO GROSS…but I had A LOT of white YI looking discharge ALL DAY and this has never ever happened to me…I wasn’t itchy, irritated or red down there so I was very confused…I thought maybe a YI is coming on?...WEIRD! I used Vagisil wipes throughout the day and it really helped clear it up. Light AF cramping for maybe 2 minutes. By that night the YI looking discharge was gone and I had cloudy EWCM.

2 DPO- Woke up in AM with random itching down there, nothing TOO horrible but definitely enough for me to notice it…but most of the YI looking discharge is GONE and I have more of stretchy, clear looking EWCM. I had a pounding headache all day. Urine smelled REALLY weird today!! My sister babysat her boyfriends little brother today and he was OBSESSED with me. Did not leave my side and kept hugging my belly really tight. Also, my sisters dog (sister lives in the basement apartment of mine & DH house) ran upstairs in the middle of the night and kept trying to jump on my side of the bed!! SO WEIRD!

3 DPO- Lotiony/chunky CM. Got a canker sore. Sore arms. Pinched feeling in one nipple for like 10 seconds. Also, this morning I had a severe cramp in my lower abdomen. DH buys me an iced mocha latte (my fave!) from Starbucks and I threw more than half of it in the garbage because I was just NOT enjoying it one bit. Random rib cage pain…Also, I notice that I’m scratching my scalp a lot. Face feels warm all evening.

4 DPO- Woke up with middle back pain that goes away when I get up and walk around. Underboob pain for a few seconds, but enough to make me notice it. Tingly right nipple again. SNEEZING! Omg the sneezing. Stuffy nose at night. Ate A TON at dinner time without even noticing. Light cramping on and off. No CM.

5 DPO- Woke up with the same back pain that once again goes away once I get up and move. Thick lotiony CM only at night. Itchy scalp and skin AGAIN. Standing in line at the post office today I was SO irritable and annoyed at everyone around me. No boob pain at all!

6 DPO- One sharp pain on left ovary when I stood up quickly. VERY hot at night.
Itchy scalp. Dry/no CM.

7 DPO- Woke up with the same middle back pain that goes away when I walk around. Dry/no CM. Very thirsty. Bloated in the afternoon. Cramps. Weird pinching pain down there. Tingly hands/fingers.

8 DPO- Thighs are sore- like I ran a marathon; I start to feel out because I get this thigh pain during AF sometimes. Back pain in the morning still. No/small amounts of CM. Tingly hands/fingers. Didn’t want to finish breakfast. BFN on Wondfo with FMU (shouldn’t have tested lol). I peed at like 12:00 in the afternoon and had EWCM with two specks of pink blood!...Implantation?
