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.

BFP with little to no symptoms

So I just wanted to share with you the big news! I got my BFP !!! TTC #6 months So what felt different this month is that I didn't get sore boobs, no moody spells or any cramping that I would usually get before AF. The only thing that was different this month was alot of CM 2dpo for about 5 days or so. So I'm 12dpo now and I've been getting pains the last 2 days and I'm like hmm.. dam AF is about to arrive anytime. But the pains weren't consistent with PMS pains, but still had the overall feeling there! So stopped by the shop, picked up a PG test. I had tested about 4 days earlier due to sheer excitement, but came back negative. I wasn't too bummed about it because I knew it was too early to test, but I couldn't help myself. BFP came late afternoon today! So over the moon. So now it's just the wait till the 12 week mark that I can tell my family! I'm hoping everything will go well. BTW, I love reading everyone's stories on here. It's what got me through the TWW, and gave me so much hope!! Thankyou all, much love xx

BFP after 5 BFN and recent miscarriage

I wanted to share my story to give hope to those who may need it, I myself read this blog often and found it helpful. I recently had a DNC in March due to a miscarriage. My husband and i decided to wait a little while before trying again so we finally decided to kinda of try in August. I did not buy ovulation test i only went off the glow app. I didn't really have any symptoms and tested with a BFN so I was certain I was out. I tested 5 times with the lastest at 13 DPO and still BFN, I decided to test again two days later and I got my first BFP and at this point I was about 2 days late for my period. I didn't get many symptoms till it was time for my period so I really felt they were not due to pregnancy. The only thing I felt was a sore throat about 4 days before my BFP, i now have sore breast. I'm so excited and nervous and just pray this pregnancy goes well and it's my rainbow baby.

BFP baby#2!

I love this website and reading about people's journeys to get their BFPs. I was very lucky to fall pregnant on the second cycle we tried, using OPKs. I'm now six weeks pregnant. Here's my BFP by DPO story.... BD'd on cd15 & 17. O day (cd18) - bad skin! Some stringy cm a bit like ewcm. O pains on left side. Sex drive went right down (from v high!) 1 dpo - nothing really. Tired but I am a full-time mother to a toddler so that could be why! Cm has completely dried up. Bloated, have to undo my flies! 2 dpo - headache. Exhaustion. Wet feeling in underwear. Boobs feel heavy. Small amount of ewcm in my underwear - kinda weird? And again before bed but realised it’s more like snot (sorry!) which I’m sure I’ve read somewhere! 3 dpo - grumpy & feel really angry! 4 dpo - DS is unwell and I'm sleep-deprived so not a great day! Breakout of spots (not like me). Feel generally run down! Creamy cm. 5 dpo - nothing really. V tired but, again, could be from looking after sick DS? 6 dpo - Ok this is certainly the first day I’ve felt proper symptoms...... Head rush when I got up a couple of times. Shooting pains in vagina for a few seconds! Really startling. Increased sex drive - warm feeling down there ;) Feel a little nauseous and bloated. Cervix feels v soft & low (whatever that means!) and I had some light cramping - especially on the left side and lower back. Really tired and was exhausted last night. I have a stuffy nose which I definitely had when pregnant with DS! Woke in the night and found it hard to get back to sleep, head felt busy. 7dpo - More spots :( Went out for breakfast and couldn’t finish (rare for me), eggs & smoked salmon made me feel sick. 8dpo - Morning coffee made my heart race. Normally I can't get by without it! Got bad car sickness (nausea). Ok so I don’t know if it’s the humidity, my general tiredness or what but I feel quite nauseous and tired and earlier had a bit of an achey feeling on the side of my boobs. My appetite has gone down and I've weirdly gone off eggs. Leg are a bit achey. Nasty taste in my mouth. 9dpo - BFN first thing in the morning. I feel like AF is coming! Dull ache down there. Feels like if I wipe there will be blood. Thought I felt it flow down when I was in the kitchen, but it was a false alarm... Again don’t want my daily coffee which is unusual... yesterday it made me feel wired and didn’t taste so good. Keep thinking AF has come but it hasn’t... feel wet! Light cramping on/off all day. I don't usually cramp this much before AF. 10dpo - Another night not getting enough sleep so I feel tired. Also feel kind of 'tingly' down there... Boobs feel totally normal. Later that day - Fast HR, almost like palpitations. Very strange. I read that this can be a early pregnancy symptom. Took a test.... FAINT BFP!!!!!!! Didn’t see it at first - had to compare with yesterday’s BFN and then saw it!!! So happy!!! Feel hot and clammy. Tired and almost hungover (even though I've not drunk). Bad taste in my mouth all day. Bit metallic I guess. 11dpo - Feel really hot waking up, almost sick. Had vivid dreams. Need to take it easy. My morning tea made my heart race. No more caffeine for me!!! Listen to your body. Feel calm and happy :) Cheapy test used with second urine (didn’t have any tests for first...) - faint BFP again! Really tired today and have lower back ache. Had to have my flies undone all day as my jeans feel tight! Boobs are a little sore. Feel dizzy if I rush around too much... 12dpo - faint BFP again! Slightly darker... I’ll get a digital test today!! Felt a little flow of something which felt like my period! But it was creamy cm.... Did a clearblue digital test and it came up 'PREGNANT, 2-3 weeks' :) :) :) So happy! Looking back, the main symptoms I had that made me think i was pregnant were the increased heart rate, bad skin and feeling very hot and a bit dizzy when I did something too quickly. Also I had terrible mouth ulcers which I get when I'm run down, even though I was getting lots of sleep. At 6 weeks now I've basically got no symptoms except a bit of a dodgy stomach and I get tired when walking for too long... GL everyone on your TTC journeys and babydust to you all xxxxx

3 Years of TTC, Hard struggle, earned BFP after soooo long! xxx

Its such a long journey of TTC that sharing my BFP story here still feels like dream but its only fair to share because u guys here gave me so much hopes and help. Anyway so I am 29 (my cycle is short 26 days with short luteal phase) and been ttc for 3 years having history of less range of DH morphology (4%) so he has been taking supplements and last report we took it was increased upto 13%. This cycle started normal, while I tracked my ovulation date on 10th Aug. 1-5 DPO Literally nothing unusual even though i was all ears to my every single body movement. 6 DPO I woke up with slight sore boobs and on&off cramps which was usual because it cant be PMS that early. 7 DPO Sore boobs getting intense, cramps on going, sore throat, I had a tough day at work. 8-11 DPO Worst sore boobs, sore throat worst, and cramps moving just between legs and back (nothing like abdominal/PMS cramps). I had a strong feeling that something is different & at the same time dint want to get my hopes too high. I couldnt wait to test but decided to test on 12 DPO. BY 11DPO night, all my symptoms disappeared and I thought it was all me imagining. So I thought I would just take the test in morning and even its BFN I have one superb holiday coming in so nevermind. so I woke up at 6:00 am on my 12 DPO (22nd Aug) and sneaked into washroom so my DH wont find out. I tested with Clearblue digital (dint want to stress myself finding faintest pink line) & whoaaaa it was BFP (Pregnant 1-2 weeks). I was literally in shock and couldnt hold it ran to bed woke him up and showed him xx The day I missed my period which is 14DPO I had white cm and lots of it that it scared me. Today I am 19 DPO and all symptoms are still there inc sore boobs, occasional cramping, white cm. Cant wait for appointment with doctor on 8th Sep! Just want to say, it will happen for you too when the time comes!!! Lots of love & baby dust to all of you xxxxx

BFP TWW CYCLE#3 Not Many Symptoms!!!

Hi there all!!! Had to post on this site bc like many of us read this site and feel it is only fair to return and add our story as well once we have our own to tell!!! Well long story short we started trying 3 months ago and already have two beautiful daughters age 11 and 4. I am about to be 31 soon and want more kids and finally talked my DH into giving me another. (I told him I wanted to be pregnant before I turn 31) crazy how life works! Anywho here goes my pretty uneventful two week wait! EWCM-hurried up and hopped in bed to “tuck Dh in” lol (he did not know I was tracking anything) Positive OPK next two days! (BD ABOUT 3X during these 2 days) 1-5DPO NOT MUCH just watery cm that turned to creamy 5-8DPO FULL BREAST (no soreness or pain or tenderness) and on 8dpo I had a temp drop 9-10dpo temp rose back up and stayed steady and on 9dpo I had lots of creamy thin milky cm that went away next day... nipples looked PUFFY and they looked like they had a darker hue around the outsides of the areaolas (room test both days and NEG!!!) but at evening time I did take one more Wal-Mart first signal test and it looked like a huge dye run so I put it away and didn’t look at it again until about midnight and rinsed it off with a q-tip “just to see” and lo and behold all that was left was a dark second line same thickness! (Went to bed excited and confused lol) 11DPO woke up and took a FRER AND IT WAS BFP (faint but def there!!!) I am still in shock bc I had NO CRAMPS AND NO PAINS AND NO SPOTTING! I actually had no symptoms except for the puffy nipples lol and I thought I was out bc I wasn’t feeling anything like so many women say they do and all of these sites! Remember we are all different and all will feel different! So don’t worry or give up just yet bc you don’t feel like this or that person!

BFP after 1 year and 6 months of TTC

It's been a long journey till this moment. I'm 31 and Finally a BFP after one year and a half trying and never once getting pregnant and having nothing wrong with me or husband. Somehow I always found the strength to continue and never gave up. We women are strong beings. Through this experience of frustrations, sadness and feeling worthless I discovered a lot of my self. I started doing yoga and meditate, eating well (no sugar, salt or processed food, a lot of orange, yellow and green fruits and veggies) and in the end, pray a lot. I used the Kindara app to track my cycles. Here are my symptoms 1-6 DPO nothing 7 DPO a lot of yellow dense CM, light cramps 8 DPO dry CM, light cramps 9 DPO little yellow CM, heavy cramps, dry rest of the day 10 DPO cramps, headache, little yellow CM, dry rest of the day 11 DPO cramps and little spotting. AF should have come. Dry all day 12 DPO cramps and little spotting, dry all day 13 DPO high temp in the morning. Severe cramps, took test and BFP. Little spotting in the afternoon but a lot of yellow CM Good wishes to everyone!!!

After 5 years...

I have been stalking this site for as long as I can remember and could not wait until I posted my own one day. Things I did differently this month: I saw a naturopath and she provided me with 50 billion probiotics, better prenatals, high dose dhea and fish oil. I also cut out gluten, refined sugar and dairy. I had done 2 medicated IUIs and this month decided to “take a month off”. My symptoms were not what I was expecting at all. Less than any other month I was “convinced” I was pregnant: DPO 1-5: Nothing at all DPO 6: more tired than usual, not regular tired, but like couldn’t fight through it tired, mood was low DPO 7-14: only more tiredness, I slept a lot longer than usual, irritable and was picking fights with DH. Took frer on DPO 8 due to the tiredness - hard negative. Bought ovulation tests, pregnancy tests, bbt thermometer and book on conceiving from amazon - that is how convinced I was that I was not pregnant. DPO 12: Had a dream about a positive pregnancy test, but didn’t think much of it because I’ve been consumed by this whole process the past few months. DPO 14: received my order from amazon, thought I’d take a hpt for the hell of it - hard BFP!!! Took 2 more tests to confirm and made DH run to pharmacy to get a ClearBlue. I hope this lets everyone know that there is hope when you feel like you’ve been trying forever and it’s never going to happen! It still hasn’t sunk in and I’m hoping for a very sticky baby, as I had a miscarriage about 5 years ago and no BFPs before today.

For me, this is nothing short of a miracle...

Well I’ll be damned. I’m practically speechless. I truly didn’t believe several aspects of our situation were true. But turns out, all of those stories I’ve heard are possible. We tried for over a year with our first, DS and ended up having to get fertility testing done. The conclusion the endocrinologist came to was “unexplained infertility”. We proceeded straight to IVF, considering IUI is not very affective at all with our diagnosis. We conceived DS our first attempt. Amazing. We were over the moon. I had an incredible pregnancy and my little guy is incredible. We are just so thrilled. BUT... we wanted more! So, we decided we were ready to start trying again. We decided to attempt on our own for two months, and proceed with IVF yet again, if we were unsuccessful. Well! lol and behold! Our very first month trying. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that “yes+”. Let me give you the low down... firstly I want to say, that I NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING WERE “SYMPTOMS”. I FELT NO DIFFERENT!!!!! At ALL!!!! Felt more symptoms on months that I wasn’t pregnant. CD 10, 11 and 12- EWCM, bd on CD 12 ONLY!!!! Didn’t even know if I was ovulating for sure. When in doubt, BD with all EWCM!!!! CD 13, 1dpo, 2dpo, 3dpo- O cramps (which iv never had before) 4dpo, 5dpo, 6dpo- constipated, but so was DH... something we ate?? Didn’t eat? 7dpo- smallish glob of white creamy/sticky cm. Didn’t recall ever having this (this was really the only sign that MAY have tipped me off a little) 8, 9dpo- tiny bit of ewcm when wiping. Tested BFN (I thought this was 9dpo but it was actually 8dpo when I tested) Today I saw someone having a grilled cheese and tomato and NEEDED one! But I never pulled the idea out of my head. I never considered this a “craving” with my first pregnancy, but in retrospect, these were my cravings. Only when I SAW someone eating something. 10dpo- tested fmu BFN. Thought for sure I was out. Headache (but didn’t sleep well and had a glass of wine) 11,12dpo- nothing 13dpo- tiny pinhead red dot when I checked my cervix (I always thought this was people exaggerating!) had cramping after this check from irritating it but it dissipated in a few minutes. Ovia app says to test. I’m too scared. So used to BFNs... 14dpo- small amount of buggery pink tinged cm. I get this EVERY time I’m about to get AF. Thought for sure I was out. 15dpo- nothing at all... hmmm... tested at 1pm with FRER digital, after peeing all day and BAAM! BFP!!!!!! Unreal. I was in utter shock! Waited like 5min for the damn thing to show up! But it was real!!! I always thought that any spotting at all the day before and the day AF was due (especially with no other symptoms to speak of) meant AF for sure. It’s happened to me a million times where I thought that I could still be pregnant after spotting 13,14dpo... and I’d always get AF. But this time!!!! AND, I’ve heard so many stories of women getting pregnant naturally after infertility, but me??? And the FIRST try!!?!!??? Nothing short of a miracle. Can’t wait to tell my husband. I wish the very best of luck to all of you. And PLEASE, ignore family and friends, and if you want it bad enough, do WHATEVER it takes to get YOUR baby! ❤️❤️❤️ Feel free to email me!

My two week wait

Hey everyone, I have been following this board for some time now and could not wait until I could post my BFP story. Me and DH have only been TTC for four months. We were getting absolutely no where, so I decided the day my period ended this last time I would start taking prenatal vitamins, tracking ovulation and using preseed during my fertile week, I did just that. 1 DPO- nothing 2 DPO- still nothing 3 DPO- Tired, very tired. 4 - 6 DPO - still gassy and tired 7 DPO- light cramps, couldn't sleep through the night which is not normal for me and when I would wake up at night, I'd wake up so hot. Still extremely tired. 8 DPO - Still not sleeping through the night, very vivid dreams, sharp shooting pain in armpits (first time ever). DH said that his grandma had a dream about fish and asked if I was pregnant.. of course I said no because I thought I wasn't just thought my body was preparing for AF. 9 DPO - same symptoms from previous day, tested and BFN. 10 DPO - had a dream I tested and got a faint positive, woke up and decided to test and sure enough I got a faint positive. 11 - 13 DPO - line got increasingly darker with each test!! 13 DPO boobs got extremely big and have been hurting since. Scheduled my first appointment for next Thursday. I completely switched it up this go around, and lucky enough I got my BFP!!! Also, I had tons of creamy CM since 1 DPO
