BFP after 16 months!!!

I'm in teers of joy right now! I really want to share this story for the women losing hope. The women who were in my shoes yesterday crying and wondering if you will really ever get a bfp and beat yourself up over reasons you may feel undeserving of a baby! This is for you! I know their are women who have tried years and a year and a half may be nothing but this journey almost broke me down to where I lost all hope. Month after month having to look at my husband and say my period came today then watch him teer up. So please, please have faith your bfp will come!!! When it finally does it is a happy sigh of relief and balls of emotions! Stay positive and stay on positive forums such as this one. Now on to the good stuff!

Ok weird lol also had frequent urination all day! In bed last night i asked my husband to go pick up test bc of the frequent urination and all I had was a digital.
11dpo- woke up this morning ready to pee on my dollar store test and set my self up for the usual disappointment but oh the slightest bit of what if?? I looked and oh my sweet heavens a faint line!! With color!! Shaking I opened that digi faster than you could say go and after about 30 seconds got a YES!
Good luck to everyone and I pray you all will be blessed with your hearts desire and don't give up!
Also did a castor oil pack on and off the week leading up to ovulation!

BFP after years of TTC

Let me just start out by saying... miracles are possible. My husband and I have been TTC for so so long. About 2 1/2 years. I have a blocked Fallopian tube (on my right side) and my husband has very low sperm motility and morphology. Meaning a large percentage aren't shaped right and they are very slow and sluggish. And in the last year we have found out through fertility treatments and multiple specialists ... that my right ovary (blocked side) is the side that produces the most and has the best eggs. My left side struggled. We did 5 months of Femara and 2 cycles of IUI. Which had to be done ONLY when I was ovulating on my left side, otherwise... it wouldn't work obviously. So many months had to be canceled due to the wrong side. We have been to 3 fertility specialists. All of which told us that because of my husband's low motility/ morphology of his sperm.. even when I was ovulating on my left side... his sperm had a 1% chance of getting where they needed to go without medical intervention- meaning IVF or IUI. So we prepared for our first round of IVF. I was due to start medications this month and then the egg retrieval/ egg transfer the following month. But.... by some miracle.. we got pregnant. On our own.... That 1% chance. MIRACLES HAPPEN .. do NOT give up.
Here was my 2WW symptoms. (Keep in mind I didn't think it was possible that we could get pregnant.. but I'm always paying close attention to my body and especially getting so close to our IVF)
3 days before I ovulated.. I did a fertility acupuncture session. I think this had a lot to do in helping us conceive.
Around day 13 in my cycle I felt pains in my LEFT side..
2DPO More small pains in left side.
3DPO-6DPO Really Hungry. Tired. Went to bed early.
10DPO boobs sore, swollen, heavy. (I thought.. dang.. here comes AF)
12DPO Took a test (because I do every month) 1 line and then another very faded line appeared after 10 minutes so I counted it as a BFN and evap took another test that night because I couldn't stop thinking about it.. same thing. Line after 10 min.
Cramped all night. Thought for sure I would wake up to AF
13DPO No AF in morning. POAS with FMU. Faint line again.. but not instant. Thinking I'm pregnant maybe. Felt slightly nauseas throughout day Like carsick almost. AF type cramps that night. Felt SO disapointed and angry at myself for getting my hopes up again.
14DPO Woke up- no AF. (I was due for AF at 13DPO) so I took another test with FMU and bam. BFP. Not crazy solid but it was there within 2 minutes. Took another digital test just because and there it was- the beautiful words PREGNANT.
In complete shock.
There was supposed to be no way this could happen without IUI or IVF. Haven't even told my doctor yet but DO NOT GIVE UP LADIES!!!

Miscarriage, D&C, TTC 1 year, HSG = BFP

You ladies may not know me but I have followed this site everyday since I found it 8 months ago. I wanted to give some hope to the ladies who may have tried to get pregnant but haven't been able to. I realize everyone is unique in their issues so here is my background first.

I have regular 29 day cycles. I do have 2 children and I have had 1 miscarriage which was August 2015. I take Q10 with vit E, folate, magenesium, calcium, D3, and multi. I have tried previously every trick in the book from preseed, soft cups (terrible experience btw), and even having my partner help me stand on my head after the deed lol. I have read 8 ttc books in the past year. What I really think did it was the HSG and law of attraction.

Like I stated I had a miscarriage in the beginning of my second trimester August 2015. After a couple of months we decided to try again starting in November. Well by the time February came you could imagine I was starting to get concerned that I didn't get pregnant being I already have children. I then proceeded to do every trick I read on the internet as I explained above. Needless to say this was very depressing for me. So we made an appointment with an RE for October this year. We just finished the testing with my HSG and husband’s sperm count with an appointment this Monday to discuss our options such as clomid, IUI, IVF, etc.

Well no need because we found out we got our BFP! I want to add I also started reading books on positive mental attitude and The Secret. This month after my HSG I cleaned out the spare bedroom expecting our new baby. I made an ovulation test look like a pregnancy test for positive visualization, and I bought some baby mittens that have a lion on them. Well guess what? The baby will be due August the 1st which means it will be a leo! Amazing coincidence…

My biggest advice have fun with life while waiting. Have a glass of wine when you want to, take an epsom salt bath, or whatever makes you happy while ttc. On the same note see a dr asap if you have fertility issues. I truly believe the HSG cleared my tubes even though nothing was blocked. I believe I had debris from my D&C. A lot of people may not understand this but a loss is a loss. I realize how fortunate I am to already have children, but once that 3rd baby was put in my heart I couldn't let it go. Secondary infertility was very hard for me and I praise God we beat it. Baby dust to all you ladies and much love! Don't give up.

36yo African 300-lb w/ vaginismus TTC #2 (first try)

Typical Cycle: 28-29 days
O Day: CD 16-17 (12 day LP)

BFP 13 DPO

**i tried a whole year with my first boyfriend. Nothing worked...turned out to be the fibrods blocking my right tube. But i broke up with him. Took a break, the found the love of my life. My King, my meant-to-be, my dear Husband. Allahu akbar!**

28 with 0 children. DH is 34 with children
I have PCOS and am 6 1/2 months healed from open myomectomy to remove 2 large and 1 small tumor on April 21, 2016. Any baby delivery is mandatory c section.

We are in our 2nd cycle TTC. The first month i symptom spotted so much and started to drive myself crazy. This time around....not really. I let it be while still trying to take notice of things like cm and breast tenderness.

O Day- from the left-pain came and went
1 DPO had sex
2 DPO can tell ovulated on left side. minor stings on pain. lots of peeing. so far this is normal.
Tender breasts. feels like the firsy day of menses type of breast pain. ugh. vagina hurts lol
3DPO cteamy cm cervix . Feeling feverish. Body aches. Glob of off white creamy cm on tissue. Like a snot glob.
4DPO fever. Body aches. Low sex drive.
5DPO fever (going dpwn) hmmm i wonder if it was immplantation day. But other that much of the same
6DPO nothing standout but odd taste in mouth. Familiar odd taste.
7DPO -8DPO nothibg to report. Work is intense.
9DPO dreams. saw a baby girl who had my full lips. woke up hella angry. Very real dream.
10DPO -11DPO no recording. Didn't want to drove myself crazy.

13 DPO 1 day late. Crampy-ish
14DPI 2 Days late. Decides to test. Bought a Clear Blue. Peed on the stick. Positive. Im in the walmart bathroom laughing hysterically because i was expecting a no ... i think? Just...wow! Husband was finishing the purchase and getting food. I'm still laughing hysterically. I don't understand that reaction. Symptoms: back and breast aches. Breast tenderness.very fatigued,. Low sex drive. Watery cm. Cp closed and high.took another clear blue and the line is darker than first...
15DPO currently I'm taking prenatal vitamins. I have very tender breasts, hunger is increasing. Low sex drive. ..i think it's due to fatigue.

I am still shocked. My husband is excited. I want a boy and he wants a girl. We are praying for twins as they run on both sides of the family.

I will keep you all posted. I fear miscarriage so im taking drastic measures to self care. Chamomile tea for starters. Praying this little one growing inside me sticks and allows me to feed them good things.

Happy baby making to you all.

BFP on 3rd Cycle

I got my BFP yesterday and it still seems so surreal. All the BFP by DPO helped me a ton when I was trying to figure out if my symptoms were all in my head or not.

CD 12: DTD
CD 13: Ovulation test is positive, DTD, felt dizzy this day and felt ovulation pain
DPO 1: Ovulation pain, Backache, Bloating, headache in PM
DPO 2: Ovulation pain, Backache, Bloating, Salty cravings, a couple zingers in R breast
DPO 3: Backache, Bloating, a couple zingers in R breast
DPO 4: Backache, heavy bloasting, indigestion, nausea
DPO 5-6: In-laws in town so didn't track but stomach issues continued (bloasting, etc)
DPO 7: Felt ovulation pain (implantation pain?) BFN
DPO 8: Continued pains, very bad backache BFN
DPO 9: Backache, Bloating, Breast felt heavy and zingers all day long (not tender to the touch), nausea in the PM. On my way home from work I stopped at a store and felt dizzy a couple times while in the store. BFN in morning and very very very faint BFP in the PM, so I took a First Response Digital with the same urine and got my BFP "Yes+"!!
DPO 10: Nausea and backache continues!

BFP w/ Femara- No major symptoms

I said if I were to get a positive HPT I would post because there may be someone with similar symptoms / or lack of.

My husband and I have been trying off and on for 6 months. I was seeing a doctor who tried me on 3 rounds of clomid (nothing negative to say because my son was conceived on clomid) but it did not work for me, did not ovulate. That doctor wanted me to automatically go to a fertility specialist but I knew there were other options (our insurance in Texas does not cover fertility specialist). I switched doctors who then stated that Femara is another option when clomid fails. I was tested for PCOS and although I have cyst I tested negative for PCOS. I started with 2.5mg of Femara and I did not ovulate. I then tried 7.5 and FINALLY ovulated on CD 19 but BFN :( I then asked about metformin and she agreed to let me try it with this cycle. So I was on 500MG metformin and 7.5 Femara and ovulated on CD 16.

This was the first month that I really relaxed. I stopped goggling everything because I was doing it every chance I got. I stopped symptom spotting. There were so many other months when I could have sworn I was pregnant. Plus I was incredibly busy with work, had a Halloween party, so my mind was very occupied during my 2WW. Also I did not test sooner than 11 DPO. In the past I was testing at like 7DPO lol (crazy I know)

CD11- BD
CD12-
CD13- BD
CD 14- went for ultrasound and 2 large follicles (22mm and 23mm). Doctor said I would probably ovulate within the next 2 days.
CD- 15 Positive OPK BD twice AM & PM
CD 16- Strong ovulation cramps that lasted most of the day. BD
1 DPO - opk still positive. BD
2 DPO- opk looks like its going negative in the AM, but positive in the PM (dark as control line)
3 DPO- Opk positive
4 DPO- finally opk getting lighter, no symptoms.
5 DPO
6 DPO- started to get mild cramps late in the day. Very mind but enough to notice.
7 DPO- cramp got a little stronger but nothing like AF cramps. I sit at a desk at work so I really noticed them today.
8 DPO-
9 DPO- had a Halloween party and usually I can drink ALOT but had no desire. This is so bad but I can drink like 8 beers and a few shots and be okay ( I have a high tolerance) but after 2 margaritas and 1 beer I felt drunk! I had to go lay down. BD. Cervix is extremely high, so high its like its blended into the walls and closed. This was a MAJOR difference than any other months.
10 DPO- Tired, I associated it with the party. Nipples a little tender. Cervix is still high out of reach, I think this is what made me want to test.
11 DPO- Halloween Day, work up in the AM, had so many cheapies hpt, decided to take one. Took it, went up stairs to get clothes for work and came back down with a faint BFP. I was so happy, I could not believe it. I read so many stories about women getting faint positives but never thought it would be me especially at 11DPO. I do not want coffee which is HUGE because I will drink like 5 cups through the day. I have no desire to drink coffee. Tested with a FRER digital and YES+
12 DPO- Tested with digitial and PREGNANT 1-2 week appeared

1st doctors appointment is at 6 weeks, so on November 14th, SO I AM PRAYING ALL GOES WELL!!!!!!

So the cramping at 6/7 DPO was implantation. I had no spotting, no real symptoms except being extremely tired. Even now at 15 DPO my breast are not sore, just a little on top. Nausea a little this morning. HPTs are getting a little darker each day :) :)

Hope this gives someone hope!!!

BFP 9dpo

This was our 4th cycle trying. My hubby has been working out of town Sunday through Thursday and somehow we managed to make it happen this month.

Immediately my boobs were heavy and hurting. I'm thinking as soon as the sperm met the egg. LoL. I was also having bad headaches for about 4 days straight. My whole body is sore. Basically I'm a hot mess.

I took a frer last night that had a faint +. So... I took 3 more with the same result. This morning I ran out and got a digital ept.. Couldn't be happier.

My boobs still hurt.

BFP @ 12DP0- Every pregnancy and fertility chart is different

Hi Guys,

I got my BFP at 12dpo 1st cycle of trying, wanted to share my experience in case it helps someone, one of the main things i would like to share is the fact that i was comparing my last successful pregnancy bbt chart to this one (for temping girls out there), this was a bad idea because my last pregnancy chart was very different because i had no implantation dip, my temp never dropped and remained high, in this chart i had a small drop at 7dpo and major drop (below coverline) at 10dpo, during this time i tried searching online to see if a woman's pregnancy charts were similar in different successful cycles but could not get any proper answers, here's my break down:

1-2dpo- Nothing, dry cm, temp high
3-dpo- noticed some white stretchy CM, not a lot, temp high
4-7dpo- period type cramps, very slight though, thought i may be creating symptoms in my head, dry cm, temp drop at 7po
8dpo- Temp drop again, evening time had really tight pulling cramps that hurt, lasted an hour or so, dry cm
9dpo- Temp shot back up, got excited that i may have implanted yesterday so took a test, BFN, thought i was out, waiting for AF, dry cm
10dpo- Temp drop below coverline, never happened before, thought i was for sure out and AF coming early, dry cm
11dpo- Temp shot right back up again, was very confused at this point so didn't test, was going to wait till tomorrow if temp still up will test
12dpo- This is a day before AF is due, temp still high, took a test and BFP, didnt expect it as was going crazy by my charts, my last pregnancy was a solid high temp through out, got some creamy cm too.
13dpo- tummy feels heavy and contant urge to wee, temp still high so will stop temping now.

My first pregnancy happened 1st cycle, i had no idea about temping, ovulation and CM then, it just happened, my 2nd pregnancy happened after the 9th cycle this is when i started temping etc, also i also started taking folic acid and Mum Omega and preseed the cycle i got my BFP, with this pregnancy it has happened the 1st cycle, i was well equipped with the success of my last pregnancy so i had folic acid, mumomega and used preseed at well, put leg up for 20 mins.

I feel very fourtunate and grateful to God, i hope my story will inform/ help someone.

This feels right this time!

I had a missed miscarriage In August and here we ate 3 cycles later. This pregnancy just feels different. Like its going good to be okay. Last time I knew and I was right! These stories kept me going threw these two and I felt I had to share mine to give others hope! Now I have to apologize as I'm not sure on my dates because see it was a not trying but not protecting kinda month. My period 4th-11th.
CD12: sticky white cm. SHOW.
CD13: slight egg white cm. The day I think I ovulated. Very wet during BD.
CD14: 1dpo? My birthday!! Sticky white cm. Ate 2 slices of pineapple.
2dpo: watery/creamy cm. Soft but low CP?. Acne.cramps on right side.
3dpo: medium CP. Right sided cramps. BD. Scant but watery creamy cm again. .
4dpo: bright yellow urine. Weird smell to it! Thick cm. Freezing.!!! Weird uterus feeling.
5dpo: same.. bleeding gums (big give away) starving. Bitchy. Breathless. Dizzy. Nose runny.
6dpo: cravings.
7dpo: holy sneezy! Increase smell. Cm smells unique. Urine smells unique. Sticky but still creamy white cm. It felt smooth down there... my books were full and only one book was sore. I felt sweaty.
8dpo: my dog kept humping things (big give away). Increase urination.
9dpo: cramps to where I felt a pinch in my leg. Sharp uterus stab.
10dpo: white creamy watery booger cm. High soft cp. EXTREME DIZZINESS.
11dpo: B(faint)P
