BFP with very few symptoms

Hi!

If you're anything like me, you've just spent the last week stalking Google and YouTube which led you to here looking for even more tww symptoms or BFP success stories.

If so I hope this post can help if you're in your tww.

I just confirmed that I am two weeks pregnant! DH and I are elated, but a bit shocked since I had very few symptoms during the tww.

Here are my list of symptoms:
1-16 Dpo: Cramps, bloating, and gas (especially early in the morning)
8 dpo: 1 vivid dream

Yup that's it.

After reading through so many posts here I realized that there are other women out there with minimal tww symptoms as well. I thought maybe couldn't be pregnant because I didn't have nausea, sore boobs, fatigue, increased appetite, mood swings, etc. Just hoping to reassure someone out there that if you think you're pregnant, don't test too early, but don't be discouraged if you don't have a long list of symptoms.

Thank you to all the women who have posted. I was truly blessed to have read each and every one of your personal journeys.

Blessings and Baby Dust!

Pcos 34 TTC 18 months.. Praise the Lord!

I had been stalking this board so I wanted to share a success story! I was diagnosed with PCOS and had done a few months of femera with metformin without success. My husband and I decided to take a break from the fertility specialist. I continue taking the metformin. This past Friday I was a week late from getting my period. My cycles are around 35 days so I decided to take a test. It was just a dollar store cheap test but it came back with a light light second line. I decided not to tell my husband until I knew for sure. That day I called my doctor to get a blood test. They called me at 4 p.m. and my HCG came back at 78! She said you were pregnant! I am beyond thrilled! And so thankful. Lord's timing is so much better than mine! Praising Him for this beautiful gift he has put inside of me. I called the fertility office I hadn't been to in a few months and told them what was going on they were thrilled and said sometimes it just happens this way! Praying for all you ladies still going through this journey I know it is hard but there are all things He is teaching us along the way! This article encouraged me http://www.crosswalk.com/faith/women/biblical-encouragement-for-couples-waiting-to-conceive-11608040.html lots of truth in it!

Miracle BFP

I am so excited to be submitting my BFP story. My hope is that it will encourage someone else that may be going through what I and my DH have gone through. I am 35 and DH is 42. We have been trying to concieve for years with no success. This year, we decided to see a new RE and start over, since our past attempts did not work. I have PCOS, and do not ovulate without assistance, and DH has no issues. After having my cycles regulated by Meformin, I was able to move forward with Letrozole on days 3-7. Clomid did not work for me in the past, so my new dct prescribed Letrozole.
For months we tried TI, but decided after the last BFN cycle we would move on to the IUI. I am so thrilled to report that after only 1 IUI, we recieved our BFP today!!
Before testing, I had no sypmtoms. In fact, I had already began planning for IUI #2. I decided to POAS on a whim, because I wanted to see if the trigger was out of my system. Because I was soooo shocked about the + test, I went to the RE also for a BETA test today. The blood test confirmed that I am indeed pregnant! I am so excited and grateful that our dream is a reality. It truly is a miracle. It has been very challenging going through fertility treatments, but very well worth it. I want to encourage other women faced with PCOS or any other concerns to stay positive and know that IT CAN HAPPEN! Trust, believe, and keep the faith. Trust that your prayers will be answered. Its still early for me, and I'm still praying, but to know that after 4 years of BFN to get a BFP is a victory! Baby Dust to all of you and GL :-)!

BFP 15dpiui (first time) and i have PCOS

Just got confirmation from my dr now that my beta count is 103.

I have had little to no symptoms.

I'm not super religious but i did have everyone pray for us this time and kept telling myself i WAS pregnant.

Below is the story i posted a few days ago...

Hi ladies, I'm driving myself insane reading on the net and not finding what I'm looking for, perhaps someone here might be able to advise me...

I have PCOS but everything on my fiancés side is fine.
We recently moved and have been so busy unpacking boxes that we haven't really had time or energy for any intimacy (bad i know but it's the last thing on your mind when you get to bed at midnight and have to be up 5 hours later)

We have been ttc for over 2 years (long story - changed specialists as a result). Our new specialist said we need to try iui and possibly ivf at a later stage if no luck with iui. We went for our first iui treatment recently, on d3 - d7 of cycle i started laradex for 5 days, when i collected my script the receptionist told me i must come in for a scan on friday 6May, on Sunday 1May i lay awake in bed wondering what scan it was, in the past i was used to a 12d scan but perhaps the new specialist did things differently. Monday 2 May was a public holiday here in SA so first thing Tue morning i called the specialists offices to enquire about the scan, it turns out the receptionist had miscalculated and i was meant to go in the previous Friday, they quickly squeezed me in on Tue for a scan.

I had one follicle on each ovary measuring 23mm, he booked me in immediately for our iui.
My fiancé went and made his deposit and i waited while they washed it.
My concern is this:
1) we didn't do any trigger shots and
2)it had been approximately 2 weeks since we were last intimate (i know ideally it should be 2 - 3 days prior to iui so we were planning it on the day of the scan which is generally 2 - 3 days prior to the actual iui)
We didn't get told the stats of his swimmers either before the procedure.

They had a problem getting the catheter in and had to use a tenaculum (i bled for 2 days after). it is now 6dpuiu and i have had a uncomfortable feeling like AF is on her way since the procedure, besides that nothing except for a nose bleed this morning (i never get them)

I'm not expecting this to be a successful iui, what do you ladies think?

Never Give Up. This is for you.

I told myself if I ever get my BFP, I'll help someone just like this site has helped me.
1-3 dpo. Sleepy...but that's normal for me.
4 dpo. School glue present. Took nap after work.
5 dpo. Argument with DH. Still some school glue. Still tired. Thirsty after drinking at least a half gallon of water. I ate a foot long sub in the am. Then Ruby Tuesday's that evening.... I don't normally eat that much...but I figured it's bc AF is on the way.
6 dpo. Heavy feeling in pelvic area. Mild pain in left pelvic area. Hungry.
7 dpo. OMG. All day...lower left abdomen dull cramps continue that even made my left leg ache with each pinch. Smh. It stopped around 9pm. I'm praying this was implantation.
8 dpo. Woke up around 1am refreshed....thought it was 7am...lol. O, and had to pee...I never wake up around that time. Weird. No cramps so far. I don't notice much school glue but my breast are now fuller (but that's normal around this time). Still have this heavy feeling in lower left pelvic area. As if af is on...I'm now feeling slight aches in lower left back and left butt cheek. Lol. So weird. One glob of yellow CM later that day. Gassy.
9 dpo. Woke up hungry. No cramps until after 5p...then it returns. Feels like af is near. Lower left back dull aches. Increased watery CM. Bloated. Still got this heavy feeling in uterus. Went to the gym for less than 12 mins and I normally do at least an hour...lol. Sneezing. Burping. Flatulence. Qeefing. Dry eyes. Took a test around 3p......BFN w/FRER !! I shouldve known better but read some ppl get a + early...
10 dpo. Woke up around 4am. Took a test...BFN w/FRER using FMU. Ugh! It's mothers day too....thought I'd have a pleasant surprise. Thought about my miscarriage yrs ago and I started crying....Start to cramp again around 8 am while laying down and it continues through out the day. Rough day for me.
11 dpo. Today...Woke up around 2am to pee. Burping as if i just ate but I didn't. Breast now starting to feel weird. Heightened sense of smell. Went to work.....ate a huge plate of Chinese food like it wasn't nothing....all while being hot at the same time. Felt real juicy down there too. Went home...decided to torture myself again....took a test around 3p....BFP using FRER!! Dropped to my knees and started praising the Lord! Won't he do it! I'm still in shock.
*The only thing I did different was stay on top* Lol. May God bless each of you! Praying for a healthy baby. *******************Baby dust**********************

41 Ready to Give UP! Miracles do Happen!

After TTC for close to 3 years, meeting with the fertility Dr. at 1.5 years- having 2 failed IUI's, multiple rounds of Femera, Clomid and Maca. We felt like every door was slamming on us and where it appeared that only IVF could be our chance, but with no more savings (IVF costs approx $15K in Canada) this dream of having a child of our own was slowly fading and we decided to stop all fertility treatments in Sept of 2015. To be honest I was just done, and wanted to get off the emotional roller-coaster ride called infertility. .

All that said, I hadn't given up hope (its hard to when your period still comes every month)- but I knew my only chance of success meant I needed to focus on my physical, mental and spiritual health and wellness in order to go through every months let down. I am extremely overweight, but in good fertile health where apparently I didn't have any recognizable reason for my infertility and my husband is in extremely good health and shape as are his sperm. We are both lead by a higher power and our Heavenly Father has been our constant strength and guide through this process even when I was mad, hurt and confused by His will not to give us this opportunity to be parents. I have come to the conclusion through this process that, timing and God's will is a very important piece in the infertility puzzle, even though we think we can control the outcomes- we truly need to be willing to be patient. Additionally, it is so important for us as women to get to know our bodies, recognizing ovulation signs and what our body needs to build healthy eggs and for men healthy sperm.

So here is what happened....finally....

I received a call from a friend who had also been struggling to conceive her second child on December 13th, 2015. She had visited a natropath who told her that in order to build healthy eggs both the mother and father must ensure that they are not experiencing sugar highs and lows, they refrain from dairy products, because they interfere with their hormones, moderate their gluten/wheat intake, start taking digestive enzymes and eat lots of raspberries! So December 14th both my husband and I went off all processed sugar, we still had fruit and didn't worry to much about a little sugar in cooking when we ate out, but we refrained from desserts and anything that would spike our sugar. I eliminated dairy from my diet- and I love cheese so this was almost harder than the sugar, for 10 days went off all wheat and then started taking digestive enzymes and enjoying fresh Costco raspberries. If you are interested in a book that helped me with this process it is Dr. Mark Hyman's book The Blood Sugar Solution 10- day Detox Diet.

The results: Besides feeling so much better and having the weight falling off, literally my next period was Jan 2, 2016 and I conceived January 21-23, we found out Feb 14th (Best Valentine's day ever) and we are now 16 weeks pregnant with our little miracle baby growing within me.

What made me finally test....Note I have long period cycles generally 41 days. You'll see aside from very sore breasts- every thing made me think I was getting my period, the symptoms as very similar.

CD40- Major Diarrhea- had to leave the restaurant early- I thought I was getting my period.
CD 41- Sharp pains in my right breast more than left. Still had unhappy bowels- must be getting my period.
CD-42- Now I am constipated- what is going on I should have got my period.
CD-43- Breasts hurt after they are touched like a residual hurt. Still no period- how could these symptoms be the same.
CD-43- I finally tested and after testing so many times and never seeing a positive, I told my husband I was going to test the next morning and he begged me not too, he just didn't want to see me cry again. I tested at 5 am with my FMU and it was POSITIVE++++ in fact the pregnancy line was darker than the test line. I sat in the bathroom starring at the stick and seriously couldn't hold back the tears. So of course when I went in to the bedroom to share the news with my sleeping husband and I was crying his first response was to give me a hug and tell me everything was going to be OK, and I was trying to get out "No- I am- no I am....pregnant". He was over the moon, we both were. Because I was still on the blood registrar for being able to order HCG tests, I went in the next day for my HCG blood work and sure enough it came back at 5111! That's when we got really excited! I tested again 2 days later and it was 12,798- then 19,879- so we were advancing normally. We visited our fertility Dr. the following week and he gave me an internal ultrasound and were able to see a little seed- with a heart beating.

BFP After one cycle of Clomid.

Hi, I think I owe everyone on this website my BFP story... I have been lurking at zillion BFP stories here for almost a year now.

Hubby and I started trying to have a baby in March'15. After two monts of trying with no success ( we thought getting pregnant was so easy sigh! ), I went to OBYGN to make sure everything was Ok. Doc told us that I have a retro cervix meaning in order to get pregnant, we have to doggy style when baby dancing for hubby's sperms to reach faster directly to my cervix. We did that every month until August cycle when we found We were pregnant!! But unfortunately the pregnancy ended the following month at 9 weeks. Doc confirmed it was a spontanous abortion. I had some spotting one day and it continued to heavy bleeding just like period. I had a D&C in Sept 25th, 2015. I finally had my period 37 days later on Oct 29th. And another period in December 5th - 37 days later. I went to OBGYN who confirmed that I had not ovulated post DC considered the 37 day cycle. So he prescribed clomid to help me ovulate, which I did. While Hubby was sent to the lab to get his sperms checked. He confirmed I had 2 almost mature eggs ( one was bigger than the other one ), so we BD'ed 3 times that month - every other day.

Meanwhile we also found out that hubby sperms result did not come out good. He only has 2 % morphology though normal counts. So at this point we were only betting at the 2 percent. looking at the result, our OBGYN recommended us IUI to speed up the pregnancy, but we told him we would think about it. Basically he confirmed with the sperm result, we needed to have IVF or IUI. So we were planning to do IVF in May 16 while fixing our lifestyle.

Since November we also tried to alter our lifestyle. We work out a lot, cut down on carbs, eat more protein, fruits and drank lots of juice. Our mindset was just trying to do our best and let God do the rest.

And surprisingly : BFP! It was really shocking. We kept staring at the stick and thought we were both being delusional. It still seems surreal even now.

So below is the detail of my TWW symptoms:

DPO 1: pulling sensation in my abdomen, ovulation like pain. Thought it could be the clomid's side effect.
DPO 2: the pain continued and spreaded to my back, so I thought we didn't want to miss the opportunity so we BD'ed again. This was Christmas day.
DPO 3:I woke up sneezing and I thought I caught a cold. My body felt warm.
DPO 4: Same as DPO 3
DPO 5: back hurt, weird twinges in my lower abdomen ( esp. In the middle part). I had this kind of pain last month when I didnt ovulate so I thought this was just my body gearing up for period
DPO 6: Back pain, slight cramps on the right side of abdomen ( AF style pain ) and white creamy CM. They said clomid do all kinds of crazy stuff. So sigh...
DPO 7 : I felt fine!!! Boobs hurt but only a little - they were heavy but aside of that, nothing. White creamy cm continued but less.
DPO 8 : same as DPO 7
DPO 9 : I had more CM, white sticky and watery CM ( I never had CM between OV and period/pregnancy, so this was new )
DPO 10: cramps on the left and rightside of abdomen and CM continued.
DPO 11: cramps more intense, I swam on this day and I could feel it more in the water. Back pain and sticky CM, craving for something sour and spicy. I felt so tired during the night and went into a deep sleep.
DPO 12: I ran for a little bit, thought the back pain was more intense and needed to fixed with a little exercise. After I ran, felt so tired and took two naps. Boobs hurt much and sticky CM
DPO 13 : Woke up at 4:30 AM, had a sudden thought to POAS. Used a cheapie stick and came out really faint. I went back to bed and woke up to check it again at 8 AM - it was darker. I was not convinced. The whole day cramps were more intense mostly on the left sife of abdomen and spread to my back. At this time, I didnt tell hubby abt the whole POAS thing.
DPO 14 : POAS in the morning, BFP - faint line but more apparant. Called hubby to go into the bathroom and he confirmed it was BFP!!!
DPO 15: Blaring BFP at 8:45 PM.

We are cautiously very happy... hoping this one sticks!! We don't know what the future holds for us... We are just hoping for a healthy and full-term pregnancy this time around.

41 years old and bfp!!

I've loved this website! Over the last 6 months I have spent the second half of my cycle symptom checking and comparing. About me...I'm a married and mother of 5 already... Was hoping for one last baby but knowing my age 41 and high bmi were working against me. I began 6 months ago tracking cm. Here's my symptoms..
1-6 dpo normal... Felt like I was symptomless
7dpo lower back ache/cramping...it was annoying and way too early for period cramps..took ibuprofen, increased creamy cvm
8dpo morning back ache/cramping took ibuprofen, sore boobs, ewcm....this was very weird and hasn't happened outside of ovulation
9dpo VERY sore boobs, stomach feeling off, emotional, tired all day
10dpo VERY sore boobs, no appetite and feeling full quickly after I do eat, just feeling blah, very tired...couldn't resist took equate 5 day early blue dye test very very faint blue line bfp
11dpo sore boobs, tired, full feeling in lower pelvic area, took another equate test with fmu..another faint blue line bfp, went to the store and bought frer 6 day early test....took it about 7 hours after the fmu test...a faint but clear pink line!!!! I'm thinking it's early still and that's why the results are faint...but 2 different brands, 3 tests taken so far and all with faint lines I'm embracing the bfps! I'll continue to test again in a couple days.

BFP after my very first IUI

I didn’t think IUI would work wonders for us, let alone the first try. I have PCOS and hubby has low count. I took letrozole, gonal f and ovidrel. I started POAS 7-12 dpiui and got evaporation-like lines on day 15-16. Lo and behold, I got my BFP on 17 dpiui and was confirmed by a bloodtest. I couldn’t believe it. The line was faint but it was there. I am now 5 weeks 5 days pregnant and have seen the gestational sac on my scan yesterday. Hoping for a healthy and full-term pregnancy. Baby dust to all. :)

Surprise BFP after certain AF would arrive

WOW. I cannot believe I am posting my own BFP story. It doesn't seem real, I am full of emotions.

I promised myself I would share my dpo story for everyone, as everyone's stories really helped me get through the hard days!

A little back story. My DH and I have been TTC since April 2015. We never had many opportunities to "try" as my cycles are VERY long and irregular. Once going 85+ days! I really, really felt a deep pit in my stomach that I would never see a BFP. Although very early I am thankful for this BFP-one my heart has been desiring for so long!

OV-CD 37! Confirmed with + OPK and pinching pains in ovaries, following rise in BBT.

3-4dpo - Totally exhausted! Also noticing breast tenderness. Easily could be from ovulation, but have never had tenderness directly after ovulation before. Creamy CM.

5dpo- Pressure in abdomen (felt like a big gas bubble!) also onset of cold symptoms (sore throat, stuffy nose) attributed to the sudden cold front that came through that weekend. Creamy CM.

6dpo- Light cramps and bloat. Had sharp pain in lower abdomen that went away after a minute. Remember having hot flashes in the bookstore. Breast still tender, gassy, tired, moody!! Creamy CM.

8dpo-Buzzy feeling in head while at work, restless sleep all night! Stuffy nose still dragging on, sore throat gone. Irritableness and fatigue continues. Breast are still tender since 3 dpo, hmm this is strange. Creamy CM. Vivid Dreams.

9dpo- Slight nausea in the morning hour. I felt like I had a heightened sense of smell! My car air freshener was bothering me! Slight pinchy feeling. (Early HPT cheapie, negative....pulled out of the trashcan a little later...is that a line or evap line?) Vivid Dreams.

10dpo- Creamy CM is mostly gone! Skin is starting to break out...just like it does before AF...negative HPT...another vivid dream.

11dpo-Woke up a little achy. TENDER breast! Seemed to be more tender than ever before! Assumed it was AF as I started getting light cramps later evening.

12dpo-More AF like cramps and tender breast, convinced AF should be here any day. Wet feeling in underwear, checking every few minutes for flow! I literally had an emotional breakdown thinking we missed this cycle. I cried for about 2 hours. Husband even makes an appointment to get his sperm tested!

13dpo- *No sign of AF* Creamy CM in the AM..hm that's strange. Painful AF like cramps continue. Decide if I don't start AF by lunch I would test, certain of a BFN...to my biggest surprise BFP!! I'm still in shock and cannot believe it!!

Main things this cycle was using OPKs and temping! Had we not we would of certainly missed our window!

Praying for all your beautiful ladies out there. Never give up hope. We prayed hard and heavily for this day to come, I cannot praise Him enough.
