BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP by DPO

The BFP by DPO is hands down my favorite kind of BFP story. It unfolds slowly, like a tulip in the spring - a new symptom appearing with each passing day… constipation on Tuesday, tingling boobs on Wednesday…. Ah, the poetry of it all!

We’d love for you to send – nay, we simply MUST HAVE – your BFP by DPO story, assuming you were detail-oriented (nice euphemism, huh?) enough to record your symptoms on a daily basis.  

So all you BFP by DPO’ers – we want to hear from you! Send us your story, blow by blow, through this contact form.

Can't believe I'm a Walking Cliché

It truly, actually happened the one month I decided to stop trying... The advice I've always rolled my eyes at!

My spirits have been kept up by reading these stories throughout the year and a half I've been TTC, so I promised myself I'd submit mine when/if the time came. Well.... it came today! I got a BFP... on the one month when I hardly recorded anything to contribute! If this were any other cycle, you would have known how I was feeling down to the minute during my 2ww, but this month I tracked NOTHING. I didn't temp. I didn't pee on any sticks. I didn't even mark down when we did the deed...

I had also decided that this month and next wouldn't be ideal for pregnancy since we're going on a vacation that could potentially involve a lot of hot tubs and hot springs and good beer this Summer... so I wasn't tracking symptoms during the 2ww. I have an idea of when I ovulated because it's the FIRST TIME in this long journey that I've had anything even resembling EWCM and I got super frisky. So, please keep in mind that these DPO's are rough estimates, since I cannot say for absolutely certain the day I ovulated.

I should also mention that I had an HSG last month, so this was my second cycle of the so-called "heightened fertility" that can be a side-effect of that test. I also started taking baby aspirin a few weeks ago, because why not?

1-3 DPO — frisky, sensitive nipples (normal for me post-O), SUPER firm SUPER low cervix. I had never felt it anything remotely like that before. It felt like a bony nose and kind of grossed me out

4 DPO — Cervix soft and high again, nothing otherwise to report

5-9 DPO — Sensitive breasts, outer area especially (NOT normal for me), with some mood swings & cravings setting in, which I assumed were PMS

10 DPO — Tiny dizzy spell while seated and doing my nails, BB's still sensitive

11 DPO — BB's still sensitive. I can smell people's pee in the restroom and it's almost too much for me to stay in there. I'm supposed to have drinks with girlfriends tonight, so I decided to take a FRER as I'm running out the door to work so I could get the go ahead to have a glass (or three) of wine and clear my conscience... Low and behold... a faint line!!! I couldn't and can't believe it. So much for wine and hot tubs!

Now that I'm paying a bit more attention, I feel some tugging and pinching just beneath my belly button, and my cravings make much more sense. I have always been the first person to scoff when someone tells me it will happen when I stop trying. I had no idea it would be quite that literal. So, congratulations, old wives with your tales... I guess you were right. I'm elated, and hoping it sticks. <3

BFP After D&C

Hi ladies,

I really hope this helps someone as much as all the other posts have helped me...I'll try to keep it brief for all the anxious readers like myself lol

I had my third miscarriage in February 2016, and had to have a D&C. (First two miscarriages happened naturally)...I was devastated, but determined to keep trying.

March and April, my cycles had returned but we're really off...so hubby and I baby danced every two days to cover our bases...March BFN...April BFN...

After my period in April, I decided to take my prenatals more consistently, and began exercising again (I had stopped after the miscarriage...due to lack of motivation and overall sadness)

*Period April 22 (8 days early than it should have been) period was weird...spotted for two days before my full blown period kicked in...lasted about five days

*Went immediately into doing the deed every two days using PreSeed as a lubricant

*Took prenatals every morning...light exercise in the afternoons

*Hubby was out of town the day I was scheduled to ovulate so I assumed I'd be out again this month...but we did the deed before he left and immediately when he returned

*Using an app, I noticed that my period should be coming soon, but I had none of my usual symptoms

*8-9DPO Tested using a cheapie because I'm a POAS addict lol...didn't see anything, but left it on the counter while I ran errands...came back to what I assumed was a strong evap line

*10-11DPO tested the following morning with an FRER...BFP...tested again using same urine...BFP on Clear Blue, Equate, and two more cheapies

The lines were faint but definitely there.

Praying for a sticky bean, and a healthy 9 months

BFP dpo 10 after first cycle of Letrozole + CoQ10!

So excited to have my BFP! My husband and I have been TTC for 6 months now with a miscarriage in week 6 of our second month of trying. I have high levels of estrogen naturally, and my cycles are typically 36-42 days long. My doctor prescribed me Letrozole (femara) to take on CD 3-7. I took a Letrozole pill each night, 2.5mg daily dosage. Felt fine overall with no side effects except drowsiness which wasn’t too bad since I took it before bed anyway. Also, a friend of mine undergoing fertility treatment says her doctor swears by 1200 mg CoQ10 vitamins, so I’ve been taking that each day, too, beginning at CD 1. I ovulated at CD 15.

1 DPO: no real symptoms, BBT still low/normal
2 DPO: BBT rose, confirming ovulation as I expected about +0.5 degrees F. Had some cramping and bloating.
3 DPO: Had some sinus soreness, felt tired.
4 DPO: bloating, minor tugging feeling in my lower abdomen; I’m assuming this was the beginning of implantation.
5 DPO: bloated again, and very minor tugging feeling in my lower abdomen again. No implantation bleeding like I had 4 months ago when I was pregnant but miscarried.
6 DPO: more bloating, no cramping but minor indigestion/constipation.
7 DPO: bloating. Had my blood drawn to test my progesterone levels. Very thirsty.
8 DPO: bloating, thirsty. Progesterone levels came back great at 21 ng/ml (doctor said anything from 15 to 25 is great for supporting pregnancy in the uterine lining. Felt good about these results!
9 DPO: Some breast soreness in the evening, thirsty most of the day even though drinking plenty of water. I shrugged it off thinking that if my breasts were sore again tomorrow then I’ll take a pregnancy test.
10 DPO: Woke up feeling okay in the morning and decided to delay taking the HPT. Went to a friend’s bbq, and had extremely sore breasts by the late afternoon. Went home and took a HPT and got my BFP!!! I used the Clear Blue Easy with Weeks Estimator and it said I was 1-2 weeks since ovulation, which is right on.

It’s still very early at this stage, as of today I’m CD 33, DPO 18. I’m trying to contain my excitement since I miscarried at CD 37-40 last time. It feels better this time with my symptoms getting stronger each day (ie more breast soreness, more food cravings, and I’m even welcoming the mood swings!). Also, I started spotting around CD 35 last time and had implantation bleeding, but haven't had any of that this time. Fingers crossed that it all goes well!

BFP

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share my BFP story in hopes of giving someone hope abd motivation like this website has given me.

I had an MC at 15 weeks in march, my DH and I were heartbroken but wanted to keep working on our now rainbow baby! First cycle didn't happen for us so I got some OPKs downloaded an app and was determined to succeed. And today my BFP!!

So here's how my cycle went:

Cd1-cd6 period (I usually have heavy ones this ond was no exception)
CD 8 : positive opk, BD
CD 9- CD 12: negative opk, BD just in case
CD13- CD 20: BD every other day just for fun
CD 21: positive opk ( what the what?!!) No BD didn't have the opportunity.
CD 22- CD 23: positive opk again!!! BD on CD 23
CD 24- 30: negative opk, felt like we missed out since we only had the chance to get at it once sp bd every other day without giving it a lot of thought.
CD 31-cd 34: HPT negative BD again for a good measure.
CD 35 or more like cd 1 since af arrived.

BUT wait, there's more...

CD 1- CD 6: period completely normal for me heavy period nothing out of the ordinary.

CD8: decided to take opk since last month waa so strange and guess what: blazing positive so, BD again and throughout until CD 11

Now comes the fun part

I found it strange that I kept getting blazing positives non stop and I've read a lot about the fact that if opk stays posituve for longer it could indicate pregnancy so decided to take HPT without any hopes and guess what faint positive, not a squinter.

Next day (today) took more hpt's including the digital all show BFP and significantly stronger then yesterday! How could this be? I mean I've as well have been having spotting since cd 9. Tomorrow going to doc to confirm but this is the strangest thing ever. Means I had implantation a day or so after my period which is practically impossible. But I am optimistic since lines have gotten a lot stronger, hoping for a sticky bean!

Don't lose hope ladies, baby dust to u all!!!

Rainbow/Clomid baby on his way!

I have PCOS and insulin resistance.
My husband an I ttcd for 16months and of the last 4 months of that I was taking 1500mg metformin and finally fell pregnant with our beautiful daughter Matilda. At 40+1 she was stillborn due to an umbilical cord accident.. Thus beginning our journey to getting our rainbow baby.
I was taking 1500mg slow release metformin and began my first round of Clomid 50mg when I was 5months post partum.
In total I did 4 rounds of Clomid with my last being at 200mg.
Ovulated on CD 22
6dpo - sore nipples
8dpo- large amount of cm, crampy
9dpo - BFN, crampy, bloating, irritable uterus, nipples sore still
10dpo - BFN, uterus VERY achey/irritable, some stringy yellow tinged cm, boobs feel heavy and nipples still sensitive
11dpo - BFN, uterus VERY achey/irritable, felt like AF was about to arrive, increase cm from yesterday
12dpo - BFN, although a faint line an hour after I took the test. Temp dip. Positive opk?
13dpo - BFP, lower back pain and cramps

I am now 23 weeks and having a little boy.
Feeling incredibly blessed.

Goodluck to all your ladies on this roller coaster of a journey! Xxx

7DPO BFP

Hi All!
So during my 2WW, I have been reading all of these great stories about BFP! I never ever thought i would be one of them.
A little background about me. I'm 33 and never had kids before. Having kids is very important to me because I am adopted and never had/knew any of my blood relatives.
I was so shocked to see a BFP at 7DPO. I thought it was wrong so I literally took 5 more. (This wasn't even morning urine.) The only reason why I took the test was because I was bored and i had so many Wondfo pregnancy test strips so I said, what the hell. Obviously wondfo tests are very sensitive!
There was no reason to take the tests because I had no symptoms and it was over a week until my period.
So the next morning, I took 2 more pregnancy tests. Both were a faint positive. I went to work and bought 2 more from the drug store. A more legit source than an internet cheapie. Positives!
That day I got in to see my doctor and she confirmed with another urine test and a blood test!
It is still very early (only 4 weeks, 13DPO, CD29) so I am not getting my hopes up just yet but the symptoms are slowly showing up. Tender Breasts, bloated, gassy and I feel a little more tired throughout the day. That is pretty much it!
Now that I think of it, on 4,5, and 6DPO, I was so incredibly emotional that I would cry... That is not like me what so ever. I would cry just thinking about random, stupid things, or cry because i heard a song or watch a show! Also, i noticed that I had more headaches than usual. Those were the only 2 things that were a bit strange but I didn't think much of it at the time.
Anyways, that is my story.
Good luck to all you! It will happen!

BFP at 17 dpo. 2-3 weeks

Hi all.

So I took my first pregnancy test at 13 dpo. I got disappointed when there was no result within 30seconds (I know impatient). Threw it in the bin and forgot about it. A few hours later I got this nagging feeling that I should check the test again. Sure enough a faint line, but as it was outside of the max of 5 minutes I ignored it. However I thought what if the line appeared within 3 minutes after all. Tested again the next morning and lo and behold a bolder line. But still in disbelief as we had only been trying for 2 months (this is our 2nd month) really thought it would take longer as this is our first. So I decided to wait until AF was officially atleast 3 days late and tested again this morning and the test said 2-3 weeks. So now I can go and do the blood work to confirm. Let's hope our little poppy seed wants to hang around and be our 5th wedding anniversary present :-)

BFP SO EXCITED and terrified

Took a pregnancy test yesterday, and it was the faintest of lines. So faint, I didn't believe it. I'm 13dpo and took another test this morning, BFP! But I still didn't believe it so I took an EPT at 2 this afternoon and the positive showed up in about 30 seconds. I'm so happy and excited. But I'm also terrified. 4 weeks pregnant and I'm sooooooo afraid of MC. I know I need to relax, but it happens!

BFP with PCOS, clomid, glucophage and after miscarriage

I am writing here as I have prayed very hard to God to give me a BFP after my miscarriage about 6 month ago. God has really listened to my prayer and gave me a BFP yesterday!! Thanks to God. Hope this story will also give more hopes to people around me!

I will give a brief background of myself. I am a mum of a 2.5 year old and had conceived the first one when I prayed in different churches in Paris, England and Barcelona. Doctor say it is very difficult for me to conceive due to my PCOS as my hubby sperms also had low count and poor structure..

I am on clomid 150mg and also glucophage for 3 cycles 2 month after my miscarriage which allows my cycle to become between 42-45 days. Used to be longer without these 2 medications. Btw, I am underweight too.

I used OPK to try and detect my ovulation period and also BD as much as I can (once every 1-2 days) during the possible period to conceive.

This month, my OPK was first positive on 30 Apr and hence ovulation could be 1 or 2 May. Assuming it as 1 May,

4dpo - a bit of sore boobs

6dpo - Left abdomen burrowing feeling in morning, Cramp throughout abdomen in afternoon

7dpo - Middle left abdomen slight pain for a few minutes

8dpo - Middle left slight pain in the AM for a few min; Start to have menses like cramp in the afternoon: tested BFN (with 15mIU sensitivity strip) was sad

9dpo - no more cramp, tested BFN but it became faint positive after 30 min (test time should be 5 min and not exceeding 15 min)

10dpo - test again and very faint line after 10 min so decided to do blood test at lunch time. Report came back as hCG level 98.7mIU! Was very happy and went to see Gynae in the evening. Gynae mentioned that it is still considered as chemical pregnancy and the sac can only be seen next week so will go back and do a scan next week!

Will keep everyone posted on the updates!

Thank you God for giving me a miracle!!!
