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.

Hope for positives past 14dpo!!

BFP! 4 months after miscarriage

hi everyone It's been a horrible year for me. I managed to get pregnant after 11 cycles, but lost it at around 5 weeks, I had to have an operations as they thought it's ectopic. Anyway 4 months forward I gave up of trying so I told my husband that one child is more than enough and thats it, I am fed up. The next day, I felt very strange , my period cramps turned into more like pulling/pinching, and guess what I got my faint BFP , that makes me 11dpo. I never suspected it as I did a digital before and it was negative. I am soooo scared to have another miscarriage again though so I am already panicking over small things like, uterus pain, loss of symptoms, all of it. I don't think I full let myself get happy till 12 week scan. It feels unreal. Also we are 40 years old with a 5 year old, so I thought I never get pregnant again, but lets see if it continues... even though in the end I thought I am not pregnant, in the beginning I was convinced I was, even entered it into my notes. Here it goes , bear in mind I usually have lots of symptoms every month, but maybe some of these below were little different, I will try to add more notes :) 1dpo:water retention, dry mouth, felt a little nauseous in the evening, left boob ache, and feels like I have a yeast infection, used some external canesten 2dpo: yeast infection disappeared (this is odd, as usually I suffer badly for days), AF pains, argument with DH, I want him to cut down on his drinking as we will never conceive like this, insomnia 3dpo: Bloated otherwise very quiet in my body, I feel rage , want to tell everyone to go away, AF pains and craving sweets 4dpo: some low down pains, maybe some cm, little nauseous, constipated, again argument with DH 5dpo: feel sick again, AF pains, cried in the gym for not getting pregnant, fed up, ok so this is when it starts, I feel car sick, some weird taste in my mouth. my boobs usually zap around this time, but this month its more like a deep muscle ache 6dpo:Bloated, constipated, some boob ache but only near armpit, car sick again!!! (I never get it) 7dpo: OMG, soooo horny! my coffee tasted weird, boobs ache deep outside only, lots of AF cramps, sooo hungry, no cm, tried, hungry 8dpo: woke up with boob ache, called in sick as felt soooo tired but all of a sudden I want to clean and clean, lots of energy this is when I thought something is up- BFN with FRER, insomnia 9dpo: some breast pain, AF pain, BFN again arghhhh, I left work early asI feel depressed, cried on the way back, bad mood, feel sick in the evening 10dpo: temp drop so I thought AF is coming, very vert vert bad af pains!!! , BFN with digi, and feel sick again, insomnia 11dpo: temp up, OMG I can see a line!!!! lots and lots of pulling and streching pain I am 14dpo now and my line is little bit more darker so I am worried about another MC, overall my symptoms were different more insomnia, and boob pain was deep, and car sick with strange taste. I hope this one stick x

BFP at 9DPO after a MC at age 39!!

Hi Guys, I've been stalking this site for a few weeks now and it has helped a lot & its helped me keep up hope & So i've decided to share my story & maybe help someone else. My Name is Ruth and I am 39years young. My husband and I decided to try for our second child together, he is also 39 will be 40 next month. Our son is 10 will be 11 in November. Not sure why we waited so long but time does go by so quick!! Anyways we decided to start trying in June 2018 and got pregnant that same cycle. We were stoked but that happiness was short lived, when I went for my 1st U/S and they couldn't find anything, a Wk later I had the MC. I started thinking maybe it was my age, maybe I didn't take extra precautions, but none of that helped so I did what I always do and compartmentalize and try again. We decided to try immediately the following cycle and nothing happened. In Aug 2018 when AF showed I'm not going to lie I did shed some tears because I was so sure I was pregnant. A had all the symptoms, but nope I wasn't. So this month we tried again I used the app Flo to try and track my OV days and left it up to chance. It started having a few symptoms, past 2 wks but kept thinking I might be imagining them. Then this week I had such an insatiable hunger I swear if I don't eat every 2-3 hrs I feel so nauseas. I thought some symptoms can be imagined but nausea, I'm not so sure. I took a HPT at 7DPO (a cheapie from Dollar Tree) and it was negative. I decided to give it 2 more days and try again. I took the FRER on 9DPO yesterday at around 5pm and I got my BFP!!! It was so bright I was shocked...!! I'm and so excited & praying this is a sticky bean. Good Luck everyone & Lots of baby dust to everyone!!!

1 year after a loss, pregnant with our Rainbow

Like most who come back here, I’ve been stalking this site for a while! Checking my symptoms with all the others and hoping this would be the month! We suffered a second trimester loss a year ago and have been trying ever since. We’ve had two chemicals where the BFPs disappeared and AF came. But not this time! Finally, this is it! Here’s my story/symptoms I took clomid CD 5-9. Got a positive OPK (advanced) on CD 14 and CD 15. I O’ed somewhere in the night between the two. O day- intense cramping. I’ve had two IUIs (different cycles) and one of them had intense cramping. It was just like that. 1DPO intense cramps continued. I felt like it was on both sides, like I could feel my Fallopian tubes contracting. 2-3DPO nothing 4 DPO creamy CM 5 DPO and 6 DPO more cramping. More like AF coming, but I knew that was too soon. 5-9 DPO CM was wet Breast tenderness began to intensify by 7dpo At 8dpo I got a vvvfp on an OSOM SMU. I was hopeful. 9DPO a faint positive on OSOM and First Response and Internet cheapie. Tests have only gotten darker. 10 and 11 dpo. Trouble sleeping. Sick at my stomach. I’m so excited I don’t know what to do. Hoping this little One grows big in there and stays strong for 9 months!

Thought AF was coming for sure!

I've been stalking the ttc boards for 5 months, reading everyone's bfp stories was one of my favorite things! And now I can add mine! I can hands down say I thought I was out this month, all my AF signs were there and I've symptom spotted so hard in the past I talked my self out of anything that might have been a sign of a coming bfp! I track ovulation with opk only no temps. I always have faint lh line from last day of AF leading up to the surge and then blank sticks until the next cycle Positive opk on CD14 stayed dark + thru CD16 I counted O from CD14 got positive at 9am 1dpo-6dpo nothing 7dpo- cramps 8dpo- skin breaking out along chin, usually clear but hot out and sweaty 9dpo- dark positive opk -weird- had creamy pink cm 10dpo- test BFN nausea holding on, only want cold foods hot foods make me feel dewy opk positive 11dpo- BFN starting AF cramps like normal opk positive 12dpo BFN, had a tantrum and threw out all opk and preg test, bought tampons. Cramping all day 13dpo- cramps and nausea. Notice boobs arent growing normally jump a cup size for AF 14dpo- dug out old clearblue. Have a line! Read how crappy clearblue is and cry all night. 15dpo BFP on FRER and digi I really thought af was coming. No doubt in my mind, I even kept running to the bathroom to check, but a panty liner on and had a beer.

BFP at 7DPO!

Hey everyone! Like anyone reading this I've been religiously reading through these posts trying desperately to see if my symptoms matched anyone else's symptoms, because let's be honest, waiting two weeks and not knowing if you're just symptom spotting and crazy and praying for that beautiful BFP is THE WORST. A little background. This will be my second child. My DD I had when I was 22 years old and it was a surprise. I ended up going through pregnancy alone and raising on my own until I met my husband three years after! So this was technically my "first" time actually TTC with someone. My favorite board to read from my the Symptoms by DPO, because we all love a good DPO story to hold us strong while waiting. It was so helpful to me that I wanted to do one for anyone who is struggling through the two week wait. I do have endometriosis. I've had two surgeries to remove what could be removed. It was suppose to get better after I had my DD, my doctor's words, but it came back stronger than before. I was assuming this would be hard to TTC as I've read a lot of articles of woman like me with endometriosis who could not conceive. I got off my birth control about four months ago (the pill) and I was on Nexplanon for two years and got off of that like a year ago. I was charting with the pregmate ovulation kit from Amazon.com. We DTD two days before I assumed I would O (normal 28 day cycle) then I got a super dark line almost darker than the control line and we DTD that day. 1 DPO - nothing. 2 DPO - Creamy CM which is abnormal. 3 DPO - a little bit of abnormal exhaustion. Bloated. Light cramps on and off. Creamy CM. 4 DPO - 100% bloating. A bit more exhausted than normal. Headache. Light cramps on and off. Creamy CM. 5 DPO - Extreme exhaustion, to the point where I had to nap. So bloated. Light cramping. Creamy CM. 6 DPO - SO EXHAUSTED. Still bloated. Cramping. When I went to the bathroom I saw I had a few light pink and light brown spotting on my underwear. Like three little spots. This is when I assume I implanted. Creamy CM. 7 DPO - Very faint BFP with FMU. Faint but totally there and appeared before the three minute mark with FRER. WOO! Exhausted. Bloating seems to not be as extreme. Slight wave of nausea. Light cramping on and off. Creamy CM. 8 DPO - Total BFP! I know the line is going to get darker as the days go on which makes me super excited. I hope you all get your BFP's too! Baby dust to you all.

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
