BFP after injectable Cycle/Miscarriage

My husband and I have been TTC for nearly 2 years. Last Nov 2013, we unfortunately had a miscarriage which left us devastated but determined to try right away. I did approximately 6 cycles on clomid ( the 5th we got prego but that was the miscarriage). The 6th cycle on Clomid I was put on 100mg but NOTHING happened.
This past cycle we decided to try injectable using Puregon/ Ovidrel along with Prometrium support.
I wasn't very optimistic but during this past 2 week wait, I just continued to trust God in his perfect timing. This morning I decided to do a HPT and I got my BFP! I tested again this afternoon just to be sure (haha) and it still was a BFP! Tomorrow I will go have bloodwork done just to confirm the pregnancy. To God be the glory as we continue to trust that this pregnancy will be a healthy one! Good luck to you all as well:)

The Wicked Witch Coming For You? Maybe not. It could be BFP

First off, I am OVER THE MOON about this BFP!!! Holy guacamole!!! I had such WEIRD symptoms, and felt like even if just a few people see this, and feel better. Then I have paid it forward. I have read countless BFP stories, and I really hope this one makes your TWW a little less excruciating.

I didn't know when I ovulated this month. I wasn't using OPKs. I had just had my Mirena IUD out maybe 3 weeks previously! Either way, I used an ovulation calculator. As luck would have it when the day came around I felt like I wasn't ovulating AT ALL!!! I still BD anyway. About a week later I had every single sign of ovulation. So, just in case.... we BD away for a few days.

SYMPTOM PATROL:
The weirdest thing happened. After that ovulation day... I just knew. It was as if I was doubting myself, but really. I knew!! My first symptom was that I had this tingling sensation where my right ovary would be! It was like I could feel the blood moving. That went on for a few days. Then I was SOOOOO hungry right when I woke up, which never happens. Right after that my sense of smell started getting better. Then a turn for the worse.... I broke out. I really felt uneasy about this, except it was a HORRIBLE break out. Which I also never get. By the next day I started having cramps, and I was SURE af was coming!!! I wrote an entire post about how I knew I was out. I kept going to the bathroom. I just was waiting and waiting for it! After a few more days I got these pains in my back, and I went to the bathroom thinking "this is it! AF is here". When I got there. It was a glob of creamy white lotion type of CM. This was when I started to get excited!! Then I was one day late for my period. Got a BFN. Thought I was out AGAIN. 2 days late, and started to realize if I ovulated late then my period would be late. That night I took two blue dye tests, and they were faintttt. Sense they were blue I figured I was tricking myself. I went to get some $tree tests. Took one, and a big BFN. I threw it on the table and called it good. The next morning with FMU I took another $tree after about 30 secs it looked as if it was a BFN. I was discouraged, and heartbroken. I left the test, and pee out. After awhile I remembered I left my pee out. I went back in, and there was a BLAZING positive!!! I started screaming and jumping. I got another test, and with the same FMU did it. Right away another BLAZING BFP. I ran to get a frer and another BLAZING bfp! That day it was confirmed by a blood test, and has only been getting darker!! Later I realized that BFN $tree test was actually positive! I just didn't see it! I wouldn't say check them after the time limit, but let the test sit for a bit! Don't be impatient like me!

You're not out until that witch shows up!!! Sometimes pregnancy symptoms are just like AF but worse!! Keep positive. Try to remember this will come right when it's meant to, and try to focus on the things you DO have! I hope this helps ladies!!

One other thing.... I only have ONE FALLOPIAN TUBE!!!! Have hope!!!

BFP!!! With hypothyroid

I'll give you my details and then if you'd like, you can read my story :) If you've been waiting a long time to get pregnant I'd encourage you to stick it out through the long post because I think it might help you :)

So here it is, and heads up, it's pregnancy symptoms so I'm not going to apologize or say TMI. You wouldn't be here if you didn't want to know :) PS I started on .5g of Synthroid on day 2 of this cycle. These are my notes:

1dpo: nothing really, just some leftover ovulatory cramps

2dpo: cramps, little bit of nausea-maybe from being hungry, still some twinges in ovaries, weird itchy twinge a few times on right lower abdomen, emotional in afternoon, found out a friend of mine is already pregnant again

3dpo: feel wet down there but nothing really in my underwear, just some creamy cm when I wipe, still cramping a bit, don't really feel pregnant, sad because my temp went down again

4dpo: constipation (I don't usually have this issue but it happened the first time we ttc so I didn't read too much into it), cramping in abdomen, some lower back pain, and pain in hips like when AF is here

5dpo: increased sex drive, cramping low down in middle of pelvis, AF-like cramps after 5pm, back, hips, and legs hurt

6dpo: nothing much, constipation, lots of creamy cm

7dpo: constipation, a few cramps today, still not sure if constipation or my uterus/ovaries

8dpo: gassy, constipation, slightly tender breasts (on inner part near the nipple)

9dpo: gassy, constipation, tender breasts, really beginning to think what I thought was cramps has been constipation cramps the whole time :( wondering if it's the synthroid causing constipation

10dpo: increased appetite, increased sex drive, gassy, bloated, constipated, breasts still tender starting to be tender on outer sides and around nipple, felt really wet down there today, sad cause when I feel increased sex drive that usually means my periods coming :(

11dpo: increased appetite, gassy, constipated (what is wrong with me??), fatigue (really tired, keep having to take naps in the afternoon lately), breasts still tender, itchy nipples, low sex drive...unusual, smelling EVERYTHING

12dpo: increased appetite, gassy, bloated, constipated (still??), fatigue, breasts tender, cramps-prob AF about to come :(

13dpo: increased appetite, gassy, constipated (seriously?), drank lemon juice and water on an empty stomach and went to the bathroom this morning, by lunch felt constipated again :( after my husband and I went on a date we were going to watch a movie and I got all ridiculous about not feeling pretty or wearing the right outfit for our date, was sure I must be about to start my period with the moodiness, have achy teeth, breasts very sore, fatigue, didn't feel like having sex...unusual this close to AF possibly coming, which I was sure she was :(

14dpo: woke up at 5:45am like usual to take my temp, had told myself I would only do a test if my temp was still up (I am not a POAS addict, I hate seeing the negative line and would rather just know by my temp going down and AF showing up), my temp was 98.34(!), I talked myself out of getting up for about 20 min, then took a test. BFP!!!!!!!! Holy moly me oh my, I'm pregnant!!!!! Definite line!!! Test line darker than control line!!! Teeth ache, very hungry!! Couldn't sleep anymore after I told my husband (he was excited for being in a groggy sleepy state :)) so I got up. A lot of watery/creamy cm in underwear and down there. Can't believe I'm pregnant!! Cramps and twinges every now and then.

Okay so here's my story:

Bfp on 3 round

Hey ladies!! I got my bpf on 100 mg of clomid just 2 days ago. I have did 3 rounds totally. First 2 rounds was 20mg which I did not ovulated the last round was 100mgs and that's what help me with my bfp. I'm not that far along since I tested at 11 dpo and got a faint line on 6 test so far. My first appointment is tomorrow. I think I'm 3weeks and 5 days. My main symptom were stomach and ovary pain on both sides. I've also had sore bbs but they are not bad. Today I'm having back pains. I hoping for only one but will be happy with what God bless me with.

Cycle 8, 1st Clomid Cycle, POSITIVE at 10dpo

So many times I was told to wait on God's timing. As much as I knew they were right, I HATED that phrase. Well, now that I've got my positive test (which I started doubting I'd ever see), I truly believe that His timing is better. Below is a blog post from the day before I ovulated. Turns out, God worked it out to be the best timing ever.

"This month is my first round of Clomid. And boy, have I been a….well you can fill that blank in with whatever word you’d like…and it will probably fit! I’ve been ALL OVER THE PLACE with my mood.

In order to share something AMAZING that just came to my mind, I have to back up a little. I’m a Christ-follower. Because of that, I believe that God created my body and my soul to be intimate with one person on this earth: my husband. That was the best case scenario for my life. However, I messed it up a little. On March 21, 2008 I decided I knew better and that I was in love with someone at 17 years old. On that day, I gave that piece of myself to someone who was not at all the right person. It certainly wasn’t the right time. I was devastated and through a series of events I won’t get into, I broke up with him and went off to college.

For a long time I was anxious about ever finding someone who shared my faith that wouldn’t care about that part of my past. I met someone who shared her story with me and allowed me to release that baggage by explaining how God had redeemed her and made her new. Thankfully, I wholeheartedly believed her and told God to help me find that person and never waste my heart with anyone else until then. In December of 2009 I met P and we instantly knew we’d never date anyone else again. Oh, and he didn’t care about anything I had ever been. He just wanted to love me like Jesus.

Fast forward to March 21, 2011. On that day, three years after the day I had always hated and regretted, P proposed to me on a beautiful beach with no one else around. It was PERFECT. And, as you can imagine, I became completely overwhelmed by how God had so strategically put us in that place on that very day. I knew His redemption was perfect and that he was certainly using my future husband to show it to me so clearly. I can’t count how many times I’ve been able to share that with friends and complete strangers the past few years. God has asked me to use my story to bring Him glory….and I’m doing my best to follow through with that as many times as he’ll give me the opportunity.

Now I can get back to Clomid and this month. I’ve been waiting all week to get a positive ovulation strip (it predicts you’ll ovulate in about 24 hours on average). I was starting to worry that the month I should have the best ovulation because of this medicine, I wasn’t even going to ovulate at all! But, lo and behold, today I got a very clear positive. Phew! That was a good lunch break surprise!

I got back to work and when I sat down at my desk it dawned on me. Tomorrow is when I’ll likely ovulate. Tomorrow is March 21st and is exactly 3 years since Philip proposed. WHAT!!!!! I just know that this is going to be another chapter in my testimony. We have been praying and praying and praying. ”God, when is it going to be your timing?” Well, call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure this is it. You see, God wants to move in our lives so we can share our testimony with others. The day our child is conceived could very well be 3 (powerful number in the Bible, by the way) years since He first showed me so clearly how He was healing and redeeming me."

Isn't that amazing? Here I am at 10dpo and I've finally seen a second line. It seemed so elusive and I know people go through so much more than 8 cycles, but I'm hoping this little sprout sticks around and stays healthy because now I have so much more to share with the world about my testimony. I haven't had a lot of symptoms. Acne in places I don't normally get it on my face, a little nausea but nothing too serious and a dull ache in my uterus since Saturday. That's truly it. Going to get a qualitative test this afternoon. Praise God! There's hope for you yet!

BFP after 2 MC

8 months ago I had my first miscarriage , and 2 months after that I had my second. Both were very early. Since then my periods have ranged from 28 to 40 days. ( prior to miscarriages they were 45!).. I got my first VERY faint positive this month at day 37 ( no real clue when i ovulated).. And each day they have gotten SLIGHTLY darker. I will be calling the doctor when they open as they told me next time I am pref they will get me in to check levels right away. I dont have symptoms to share, because this month I decided to ignore symptoms because they were faking me out every month.

One helpful thing I will mention is that when checking my cervix things down there have felt kind of swollen.

So hard to see sometimes but God has a plan!

BFp!!!! (With hypothyroid)

I can't believe I can finally post here.

22 months of TTC, Hashimoto's, MFI

My husband had a vasectomy after our son was born as we were very young and had 2 babies under 13 months old. He had a reversal in April 2012. We tried for a year and no luck. Started getting hardcore after the year and got a semen analysis: 48 million total, 50% motility, 4% morphology. And then we tried everything, clomid, one IUI, meds for me, vitamins, Fertilaid, Countboost for hubby, I ate pineapple and took B6 for my spotting issues, etc. My RE suggested I might need a lap/hysteroscopy so I did one last July where he found one tube bent and the other full of debris. He said he wouldnt call it endo, but leftover scarring from a D&C I had to have after my son was born for retained placenta. I finally said God I give it all to you, there is nothing we can do on our own and tried to move on.

I stopped the clomid, prenatals, & deleted my fertility friend app. I won't say I didn't think about it or didn't hold out hope, and I still stalked the tww. I have hashimoto's disease (thyroid) also & take synthroid. This month I just knew something was going on because I spotted only once on 7ish dpo (implantation) and my boobs got sore as usual, then stopped. I always spot, like every time I wipe spot, at least 2-4 days before AF, all the way until she comes. I was dry as a bone down there and my boobs got sore again. After I gagged and almost threw up at the smell of hot dogs at my best friend's son's first birthday, I ran and got some dollar tree tests. I prayed and told God I trusted his master plan, and opened my eyes to a big fat BFP a day before I was supposed to start, at 7 pm at night! All that to say, GOD WORKS MIRACLES! Also, this cycle was super stressful as my husband's sweet Mamaw died on my birthday, and several friends & family had just found out they were expecting, which so many of you know, is so heartbreaking.

I think the symptom spotting can be a fun/obsessive way to pass the time, but what really gave me hope was stories like mine that beat the odds, so I pray it blesses someone and gives you something to hold onto on those hard TTC days.
