I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Negative Yesterday, positive today 10/11 dpo!

Hi all, I'm a longtime 2 ww reader, I can't believe it's finally my turn to write my bfp story! We've been trying for 2 years... I can't believe it's positive!

This month we did 2.5 mg Letrozole IUI w/Ovidrel trigger. IUI Sunday/Monday 11/8 and 11/9. I thought I would ovulate that monday or tuesday but on Wednesday morning I woke up with really bad pains in my lower abdomen. It felt kind of like when your bladder is way too full. I think that's the day I actually ovulated.

I took a few pregnancy tests this week to make sure the Ovidrel trigger was out of my system, and they came back negative. Yesterday (Friday) I took a cheapie wondfo with FMU and it was absolutely negative. I was feeling really bummed out and a bit bitchy yesterday (probably because I thought I was out yet again). I'm a Fertility Nurse and my coworkers knew I was ttc. I voiced how frustrated I was by not having any control over what happens to my body. I was so sick of seeing negatives, I didn't think it would ever happen!

I ran out of cheapie pregnancy tests, so this morning (realizing that it would probably be negative), I took an LH test. It came back positive, so out of curiosity I decided to use my golden pregnancy test, the FRER. Within seconds, this is the line that I saw! I called my office and they squeezed me in for a beta. I find out the beta number within a few hours! Fingers crossed!

My symptoms:
Absolutely none. Breasts tiny bit tender (wayless than my previous cycles with negative results). Little twinges past couple days (probably implantation). Vivid dream last night, (but I had vivid dreams with negative cycles as well). Basal Body Temperature 98.9 for past few days. Good luck all!

BFP 21 dpo after 3 years ttc with PCOS & low motility. 1 cycle of clomid.


I have been stalking for about two years now and I never thought I would be sitting here and actually sharing my story. This might be a bit long for some but I hope this can help someone.

Hubby and I are in our middle 20's, how could we possibly tell our friends and family we suffer from infertility? That's not something you can tell everyone even though it would help to have more support. I quit smoking, and by the 2 year mark of ttc I was really sucked into a void of anger, sadness, despair and the feeling of utter uselessness. Booked an appointment with my gynie in September of 2014 for December of 2014. And she started me on Metformin and Pregnitude I'd take 500mg of Metformin in the morning and 1 sachet of Pregnitude in the late afternoon, and this helped tremendously with my symptoms and helped to regulate my cycle, I felt great! But still did not get pregnant after 6 months of being on it, but at least I had a pretty regular cycle.

So I went back to my gynie June of 2015 after a stressful work trip on the opposite side of the country where I hardly had sleep, got the flu twice in a period of 5 weeks! Had an ultrasound done and at least my ovaries were looking a lot better since December 2014. She asked if I'd be willing to try Clomid next, and at this point it was definitely a yes. Carried on with Metformin and Pregnitude as per normal, and lo behold I couldn't use the Clomid yet because my period decided to go haywire after that trip, So AF disappeared from end May to early October! October was another few weeks work trip but thankfully not a stressful one hubby and I went together this time. It was pretty much like a holiday, we got to go to the beach in our free time and were surrounded by the most wonderful people. My cycle came 3 days after arriving, thankfully I packed my Clomid in and I thought to myself it's now or never. Took it everyday at 11 am from CD 5-9 unsupervised (haha), had some side effects though such as lower abdominal cramping, mood swings and headaches. Dtd not digitally monitoring, wasn't completely focusing on ttc much but still keeping an eye out instead of obsessing as I'd always do and rather enjoying ourselves away from the city.

I remember getting a sharp pain in my right ovary on cd 12, for about 2 minutes. I knew this had to have been ovulation cramps! And pretty early might I add, I also noticed a lot of ewcm. The cramps never returned after that night. I started tracking from there.

1- 10 dpo: Felt nothing but a minor side effect still from the Clomid which was mood swings, other than that just my normal self.

11 dpo: Lower abdominal cramps, (felt kind of like period cramps).

12 dpo: Shooting pains pulsating up in the morning, and this very odd tickling sensation below my navel in the evening, felt like someone was stroking a feather inside my uterus.

13 dpo: Had a very intense dream this evening, lower abdominal cramps. Started shivering with goosebumps at night even though it's very hot.

14 dpo: Another intense crazy dream, lower abdominal cramps, and shivers with goosebumps at night.

15 dpo: Another totally messed up dream, lower abdominal cramps and shivers with goosebumps at night.

16dpo: Lower abdominal cramps uuugh, shivers with goosebumps ended.

17 dpo: Period like cramps, highly irritable.

18 dpo: Had a dream of pregnancy, and a baby. Period like cramps.

19 dpo: Period like cramps, irritable to no end.

20 dpo: Still cramping, very annoying, feeling hungry.

21 dpo: Lower abdominal cramps, boobs starting to hurt and BFP in under 10 seconds!

It took me 3 days to finally come post because I just couldn't believe it! I'm still struggling to believe it happened to me. Thank you for reading my story, and wishing all you ttc'ers good luck and baby dust to you all, don't give up yet. I was going to ttc till December and look into other options because I couldn't handle it anymore. And I got lucky, I just wish I could give you all a big box filled with hope, hugs and compassion. I needed a lot of that with our journey. I also switched to a better multivitamin (Viridian) 2 months ago, and have also been taking an extra high 5 B-Complex with Magnesium Ascorbate (Viridian) for 2 months where as I used to only take a regular B-Complex, I don't know if that helped, but felt worth mentioning.

Positive after having twins via IVF

My twin daughters are 2 years old, we have not been on BC since and finally got a positive. We weren't tryinv until the girls were one so it took us over a year. Some months we missed our window and some months we really tried hard. I was starting to think we were not going to conceive again and that I still had infertility. So happy we are going to have baby number three!! I tracked my symptoms just incase I wasn't pregnant so I could compare next month and avoid getting my hopes up.

I am also a regular spotter before my period and I still spotted this month.

CD 7 bedded
CD 10 bedded
CD 13 bedded, i was extremely nauseous during this ovulation, like never before. So strange, maybe I was dropping a big ole egg. Headaches, bloated, just had a carsick feeling.
CD14 post OPK still nauseous didn't want to have sex that night.
cD15 bedded that morning to hit the window for sure.
5dPO start feeling pms bloating, headaches, acne, boobs sore
6dPO irritable, headaches

7DPO started spotting I felt like I was maybe out, but I had read on herethat some people spot and are still
pregnant. Left ovary pain, moody, irritable( typical)
8DPO-10PO sore boobs and spotting. Neg test, irritable, depressed.
11dPO no more spotting neg test. Here is where things changed up on me. I was seriously fatigued this day, and emotional. I'm a bitch and cranky during pms but I dont get weapy. I got emotional from a picture. I also temeber thinking omg this pms is so bad, let it end already!!!!
12DPO boobs feel very swollen no spotting, odd so I tested and got a line! So happy!! Also my mother died suddenly in May, I prayed so hard to her and God this month, I wanted to create life after death.

Miracle BFP...!

I have been a bit of a lurker for a while, reading many of the stories on here and have been touched by them. Since I just got my BFP this morning, which was really surprising, I thought I would share my story, in hopes that those who have been TTC will not lose their hope!

DH and I had been NTNP/TTC for a little over a year. My cycles are generally about 32 days, but they are a bit irregular. About 6 months ago, I went through a cycle where I seriously "felt pregnant" and was late for about a week, but DH was not quite convinced and ended up proving me wrong when I got a BFN and AF came.

This cycle, I tried not to obsess about my symptoms and was beginning to think AF would come. But red flags went up when I began spotting on CD37 which then continued on CD39 and into the middle of the night before stopping. Even the cm pretty much dried up. I was starting to believe that I ovulated REALLY late. AF was supposed to come around 10/22 or so. I had read somewhere it's best to test two weeks after the missed period here in Korea, so I waited until then. It was a bit hard at times, but I tried to keep my mind distracted. We dtd on CD20 and CD28.

Didn't track closely, so here's a list of what I felt at times:

indigestion, tiredness, mild cramping, breast tenderness and soreness, nip sensitivity, some random pain and discomfort around the pelvic bone, into the upper right leg, some pulling behind my belly button just a couple times.

Most of the time it was incredibly similar to what I have normally felt before my period.

I had decided to take a test last Monday, but DH told me I should wait until Friday, which is tomorrow. However, yesterday he told me to try testing this morning, so I used my FMU. I used the PIAC method and I was barely taking the tester out when the test line had a strong streak within the first 5 to 10 seconds.

I have since felt more pregnant than ever and my symptoms have become stronger. Even cm picked up a bit again. Could it be due to the fact I know I'm pregnant for sure? At least I wasn't imagining it this time.

Anyway, the reason I call this a miracle BFP is because we were told by a couple doctors that it would be incredibly difficult to conceive naturally or with insemination and were strongly recommended to use IVF. Yet even then the possibility was still not too high. I had wanted to get pregnant naturally and chose to just leave it to God/Jesus to do the impossible, since nothing is impossible for Him. We were shocked this morning and are still in a small state of disbelief, but are very grateful for this blessing. Especially since we haven't been TTC very long, compared to some women on here.

Long story short, even if the doctors tell you there's not much of a chance to get pregnant, don't stop believing and praying! Miracles DO happen!! For those who have been waiting longer, don't give up hope and just pray, and wait for His timing! The grace and power of God is truly amazing. All glory to Him. He is in control!

Here's to hoping this sticks!

Note: Ignore the strand of hair in the pic, haha.

BFP with ZERO symptoms!!! There is hope!

Very, very thankful to be posting here. We have been ttc #3 since May and I recently got my BFP on 10dpo. I felt exactly the same as I have the previous 6months! I literally had no cramps, no implantation bleeding, and no extra cm (in fact I was quite dry and thought for sure I was out...until 12dpo and on)!

I guess I was a tired, but I have an 18mo old and my alarm goes off at 0430 every morning for that was NOT a pregnancy symptom for me. We have been on fertility meds since May, but this month was the first time I did injectibles (Menopur 75IU for 5 days). I ovulated really early, cd 10 with two large follicles (23 and 24mm). I used Ovidrel to trigger.

10dpo beta=45
12dpo beta=123
16dpo beta= 788

Ultrasound scheduled for 12 November. I am praying and praying everything looks beautiful! Thanks be to God for this blessing. I know His timing is WAY better than ours. What really helped and gave me peace was just surrendering this journey to Him. No matter what, we have a beautiful son here on Earth (our first son was stillborn during birth in 2013) and if we never get pregnant again, I am satisfied. BUT I had/have a very strong desire in my heart to have more children, and I am SO thankful for this life growing inside me! EDD= 2 July 2016. 1 day before our anniversary :)

Last month we did an IUI, my DHs sperm motility was low at 30%. I was crushed! The IUI didn't work so I thought we'd be doomed for IVF. Well, we didn't do another IUI this month because we still owe for last months and didn't want bills piling up. We had TI, used Softcups after each time, Preseed, and I also had him taking Fertilaid and Motility Boost since last months failed IUI.

Hang in there ladies, and don't give up hope. I know, easier said than done, but have faith and try your darndest to relax while ttc and the tww. Stress is very powerful.

Miracles Come True (Beware: Implantation Bleeding Pics TMI)

Hello Ladies,

Where do I start. Its been a very long two year wait has finally come to an end. Here is m story!! I hope this gives those out there like me some hope!!

Me and my husband have been trying for two very long years. I was stuck in in denial hoping that each month would be my lucky month and that month came only after getting some much needed help. I saw my Infertility Specialist July 2015, where I was diagnosed with moderate to severe PCOS. I had an HSG where I was given a preliminary diagnosis of on blocked ovary on top of my PCOS :(. My hopes went down the drain but I never stopped believing in a miracle. After all tests were completed I was to schedule a follow up visit after three months from my first visit for my proper diagnosis and future treatment plan. I was however given Metformin and I was started at 1500, which helped me stay optimistic after researching success stories. So now I am one week away from my follow up visit, however with a wonderful surprise BFP. To make things extra special is that my last BFP which ended a chemical was from September 2014. I now how my official BFP from conception September 2015 which means I would be Due June 15, 2016. I already have a daughter born June 17, and one from June 28. This is going to make a great debate with choosing the birthday because I will end up having a c-section. Well I hope I did not overwhelm anyone.

My symptoms:
09/29/2015 -1 DPO: BD just so I would not miss this month (Just in case ;) 09/29/2015
09/30/2015 Ovulation Day- BD again just so I would not miss this month (Just in case ;)
10/01/2015 1 DPO: Prepare for our family trip to Vegas
10/02/2015 2 DPO: Left for Vegas. Super Busy, long drive and getting everyone organized.
10/03/2015 3 DPO: Relaxed, had some drinks, took some naps, ate lots of snacks.
10/04/2015 4 DPO: Relaxed some more and time to come back.
10/05/2015 5 DPO: Super Tired, stayed in bed.
10/06/2015 6 DPO: Woke up with a really bad lower back ache. Called in sick to work.
10/07/2015 7 DPO: Woke up again with a really bad lower back ache. Called in sick to work.
10/08/2015 8 DPO: Went back to work. No symptoms. Super busy and tired.
10/09/2015 9 DPO: Spotted, and thought it was strange (Possibly Implantation Bleeding - See Picture) so I took a Wondfo OPK and HPT, and a very faint line appeared on the HPT.
10/10/2015 10 DPO: Spotted very lightly, and made the DH buy me FRERs. Took after noon and light BFP!!! DH and thought I was a chemical so I had a drink :(
10/11/2015 11 DPO: No Spotting Bought some DIGI's and also Positive.
10/12/2015 12 DPO: More positive pregnancy tests. No symptoms what so ever.
10/13/2015 13 DPO: Itty bitty, hardly visible spotting so I emailed my Endo, who advised me it is normal and ordered HCG Count, and a follow up in two days HCG count. Went in at lunch, and got an email with my lab results and HCG was 279
10/14/2015 14 DPO: No more spotting. Still worried, and tired. Still no symptoms.
10/15/2015 15 DPO: No spotting, went for follow up HCG count and thank GOD it doubled to 611.
TODAY!!!! I am doing great. I get nausea very seldom, boobs are mildly soar, no cramps, just very mild, and by mild I mean super mild to almost non existent abdominal pressure. I am still a little worried, but I keep testing every day from my Wondfo HPT Pile so I am not spending more money.

My three month follow up with my Endo is coming up so I will have an ultrasound and crossing my fingers I will get to see the baby and its heart beat. I will be 6 weeks 3 days on that day. Good luck to everyone and please don’t loose hope because I almost did but my prayers were answers. I wish you all luck. Also please not that I did research that PCOS increases your chances of not feeling any symptoms. I did not get into detail, but I felt some reassurance for my non-existent symptoms.

How I got my BFP:
BD -1 Ovulation
BD Ovulation Day
Used Pre-Seed and Conceive Plus
Took Metformin for 2 months and a half at 1500 mg a day.

Good Luck Ladies!!

BFP today after a squinter yesterday!! Symptom recap!

Hi Everyone!
Just got my BFP today. I posted other stories on "Do you think I'm Pregnant" and everyone voted no!! So doubters, here ya go:

Only had sex ONCE this month!!! Conceived on our first try, just like with my DD 5 years ago! 28 day cycle, no health issues. I'm 35, DH is 40

BD: Friday Oct 9 at midnight. Laid straight for 30 min, then got up to clean up.
Satuday: nothing
Ov day: sharp pain on left side, Sunday at 1:00 pm
2DPO: nothing
3 DPO: headache
4 and 5 DPO: headache and lotion CM. Exhaustion and tender BB's
6 and 7 DPO: above symptoms with itchy skin all over body and runny nose
8 DPO: above symptoms plush a gush of watery CM. Literally thought I peed. Still scratching skin and blowing nose. Did a two year expired Equate test in the am, FMU. BFN!! had some nausea throughout the day and burping
9 DPO: test in the morning FMU- very faint line on a dollar store test. So faint I had to tweak it to convince myself. Waves on nausea and more lotion CM. Burping!
10 DPO : repeated the dollar store test with FMU. BFN???!!! In a panic, tear open a Sobey's (Our Compliments) brand test and pour the well of pee I collected over it! I didn't think I would have enough. Stared at it.... BFN???!! Threw it under the sink and Went back to bed praying I'm just testing to early, or my urine was too dilute. Lay there looking up values for BHCG at 10 dpo. Decided to get up and toss test in trash before husband saw it.

I reach under the sink, dump out my bag of pee sticks and WHAT DO I SEE????


I didn't give the damn thing a chance to develop! Strong beautiful pink line!! Crying and praying on bathroom floor. So happy!
Now, I have an elaborate plan to surprise my hubby!!! I think he suspects though, since he has been asking why I am craving meat and sleeping so much.... LOL!
Looking forward to more testing in the coming days.

Sending positive vibes, prayers and baby dust for all you deserving Mommies to be!

hey, 4 ppl that voted I wasn't pregnant, this BFP is for you

3DPO cramping in my lower pelvis, actually told hubby it was painful
5DPO vivid dream I had a baby girl!
6DPO - one of my nails started peeling back, I immediately thought "I'm pregnant". My nails were strong, now they are brittle just like during pregnancy.
7DPO mood swing - no patience, same as previous pregnancies - I go from 0 to 100 in 3 seconds, versus normally a more patient self
8DPO I know it's too early, but at night I get a BFN.
9DPO I wake up with that familiar feeling of nausea that is telling me to get something to eat in my stomach.... also at times dizzy, and several times throughout the day EXTREME thirst, out of the norm. test in the evening, BFN.
9DPO - starting to get a sore throat like a cold. Lower immune system??
10DPO, feel queasy/hungry, such a familiar feeling after having 3 babies in the last 4 years. I'm more sure than ever that I'm pregnant! Spells of being lightheaded.

BFN this morning.

AF should have appeared yesterday, no sign of it.

10DPO - morning: more sore throat. evening - heartburn!!!!
also... this is a random thing...... for the last week I've been seeing things incorrectly. Like if something says "Man dies in fire" I'll think it said "Man lies interest" something just totally random.
My husband had gas and it caused me to dry heave.. Also couldn't stand the smell of his beer breath

11DPO cried while watching a video of a teacher saving a student from choking..
slightly swollen labia, smelly urine

12DPO big morning sickness this morning. Aversion to different types of food. Daughter peed in her potty, as I was emptying it the smell made me dry heave. Very sick now with a head cold and phlegm.

evening - very light pink spotting.

13DPO more morning sickness, coming in waves over me throughout the day. Ran out of pregnancy tests, can't test. Finally run out to the store and buy more, test in the evening... BFN. This is driving me nuts!!! This is now day 32 of my cycle with no period... normally I'm a 28 day girl... but my BD was on day 19 of my cycle, so technically we are only 13 days past that... it is so hard waiting!!! WDYT???? It's like, I KNOW I'm pregnant, and I'm pissed off that the tests are saying no still!!!!!

14DPO tested in the morning with another dollar store test, BFN. Crazy emotional - yelling at my hubby all morning.

I finally realized that the dollar store brand I was buying was one I hadn't used before, and I realized I might have better luck with a more expensive test.

So I drove to Shoppers and bought a first response test that shows pregnancy up to 5 days early.....
and... ***DRUMROLL*****


I'm just upset that it took the tests so long. I've known since 6 days past BD.

IUI Miracle

I remember reading month after month about how others were surprised and excited, never thinking it would happen to them... Ditto. I could not be happier to finally say that I received my BFP. Here's my story...

Several years ago I went to the hospital for treatment for an infection. During a routine xray it was discovered that I had a large ovarian mass (think, size of a football and it got bigger) No wonder I kept gaining weight! Since that time, I've had surgery twice and I was also diagnosed with PCOS (with strong insulin resistance). Fast forward several years of fighting my own body and I continue to face infertility.

Finally, letrozole was working and I was ovulating. Check one. Sperm analysis complete with no problems. Check two. Why am I not getting pregnant? I don't know. I will say this... against add odds it just happened. I got my BFP on my first (!!) IUI. I did not use a trigger and OPKs never really worked with me so I was guessing based on months of tracking BBT. Also, I ovulated at least 24 hours after my IUI. I combed over every single bit of info (after the fact) about timing IUI and ovulation. I am here to tell you, it can work in all kinds of situations! Reading obsessively can drive you crazy. My BBT was off this month, plus the timing of the IUI, and I got a cold. I just knew I was out... Not so much. My first BFP came on 12dpo. I'm currently 5 weeks pregnant.

'don't get obsessed with reading into signs and online sites' haha, never!
'stop trying so hard and it'll just happen' - uh, no.
Have faith and keep trying.
