Bfp at 12dpo!

First of all, I am SO excited to finally be able to post on this site. I gave up writing down symptoms with my first child and wasn't able to so I promised myself I wouldn't do that so I could contribute this go round. A little bit of my backstory: I have a 19 month old son. When he was about 8 months old I started praying that when it was the perfect time for our family to expand God would tell me by telling my husband. This is a feat in and of itself because he is not an emotional guy and I wasn't convinced he wanted more kids. I just kept praying and praying and eventually by the grace of God on Christmas day 2015 he said he was ready. I could not believe it! Well, along with that prayer I also prayed that when the time came we would get pregnant easily (as my first round took quite a while) So, we began trying in January and it was not successful but I stayed strong in my faith knowing God put it on my husbands heart which meant it was time. February rolls around and it worked! God is so good and when you let him guide your steps you can't go wrong! I got an Extremely faint could've been my imagination faint bfp at 7 dpo and then a bfn at 10 dpo and a bfp at 12dpo!!! Below is my symptoms by dpo.. 1dpo- Lots of ewcm, crying over nothing, extreme peck muscle pain like I did a million push ups 2dpo- very sore nips, gassy, snotty cm, starving, acne 3dpo-Snotty cm, itchy everywhere, dreamt last night got bfp, breast tenderness 4dpo-Emotional, Starving, breast tenderness, bubbly feeling in pelvis 5dpo- Nips and chest muscles very sore again, bloated, sharp vaginal pains, hungry, itchy, another bfp dream 6dpo- Very crampy, milky cm, slight breast tenderness, crampy 7dpo- Crampy, sore throat, extreme back and leg pain, restless sleep, vvv faint bfp?! 8dpo-Low back pain, crampy, mood swings, slight breast tenderness 9dpo-Exhausted, rectal pressure, constipated, not as hungry, dizzy spells 10dpo- Gassy, crampy, right ovary pain, constipated, rectal pressure, exhausted, happy, slightly nauseated bfn. 11dpo- Jittery hands shaking, little dizzy, waves of nausea, happy, crampy upon sudden movement, burning in pelvis 12dpo- Bfp!!!!!!!!! The main things that were different for me this month were: sore nips, and dizzy spells. And when I got jittery I recalled having that my last pregnancy which is what made me test the next day! I'm so excited to welcome baby number two God is so so so good!!! Best wishes and baby dust to you all!

BFP after 2 miscarriages and 17 months TTC

This is for all of the momma's and momma's to be out there who have suffered losses and feel like it's taking forever to conceive again. I faithfully read the bfp stories that other ladies had shared every day for the 17 months I was TTC. This site gave me hope when I lost all hope, it was here for me and understood what I was going through when no one IRL could. Now it's my turn to give back bc I'm finally pregnant with a perfectly healthy and active baby that's kicking me right now. I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and I wanted to wait until after my 20 week anomaly scan to share my BFP story so everyone reading knows this bfp resulted in a baby. That was something I always wondered while reading the bfp stories. I'm 26 and DH is 29 and we began TTC when I was 24 and him 27. I charted my bbt using fertility friend and I read TCOYF other then that we didn't do anything special. I stopped the nuva ring may 2014 (my hormones were a mess for a year after I stopped BC. I also suffered many side effects from all forms of BC and I personally believe that my miscarriages were caused from being on BC from the age of 14.) We conceived on our third month trying and sadly miscarried at 6 weeks. After my miscarriage I didn't ovulate for 5 months. On the 6th month after mc I finally ovulated and I conceived that cycle Jan 2015. Sadly I miscarried again at 6 weeks. I know a lot ppl say that the line on the test doesn't mean anything but for me it did. With both of my MC I had very faint lines on FRER that barely got darker. I also never got more then 1-2 weeks pregnant on clearblue digi weeks indicator. My first MC I had zero symptoms except bleeding after sex before bfp. My second MC the only symptom I had was sore nipples that abrubtly stopped hurting before I miscarried. I'm not sharing any of this to scare anyone I'm just sharing what happened to me. After my second MC I only had 2 anovulatory cycles. My cycles at first were irregular and as they started to regulate my period went from being 7 days to a wonderful 4 days. Just before I conceived my rainbow my cycles averaged 26 days with a 4 day period and my leutal phase varied from 12 to 14 days. We were TTC 9 months after the second MC and a total of 17 months since our TTC journey began. By that point my dh and I started discussing fertility testing, we weren't purposefully trying anymore, and we decided to focus on other things. We were planning our move across Canada to be close to our family again, and focused on our future together. I decided to take a break from charting because it had become stressful. I still watched my cm though. I had a very bad poas addiction and I continued to test every cycle with 3 or more FRER. I tried using cheapies but I would just talk myself into believing they were wrong and buy FRER anyways. I truly believe in God's timing. We conceived our rainbow Oct 2015 9 months after our second MC. On Oct 25 my dh proposed and based off of my cm that's when I suspect I ovulated. My dating ultrasound lined up with that date as well. My BFP cycle I 100% believed I was NOT pregnant. Nothing made me think I was pregnant in fact I thought I was in for a terrible period. I'm sorry I wasn't tracking symptoms by dpo but here is what I experienced. -terrible cramps that were no different then my usual premenstrual cramps. I kept thinking any day my period is going to start. - my boobs hurt so bad and felt very heavy - I had my usual creamy premenstrual cm - I was more emotional then usual - I did experience a couple mild headaches - I was more tired then usual But again these were all symptoms I would get before my period. Looking back I tested on 10dpo. On the day I tested I thought for sure it would be a stark white negative. I didn't feel pregnant and I only tested bc I tested every month. I bought frer before going into work and I poas in my work bathroom. I put the test on the sink while I went about my business and washed my hands. My goodness was I shocked when I finally looked down and seen that beautiful pink line. I seriously could not believe it. It wasn't a solid line but it wasn't a squinter either, that line was definitely there. From that point on I poas 10 more times every other day and my line got progressively darker. My line beat the test line on 18 dro. CB digi said 2-3 on 18 dpo and on 21 dpo it said 3+. When I seen that 3+ pop up on the screen I fell to my knees crying and I thanked God for blessing me with this baby. My baby is due July 12th 2016 and I can't wait to meet him or her. I pray that each and everyone of you will get your your much longed for bfp and have your beautiful & healthy babies in your arms!

bfp with PCOS thanks to GOD and femara/letrozole

I am in total shock I'm here, honestly .. 12 tests later and I'm still in denial, it doesn't seem real! Just two days ago ,I was getting bfns!!!! Okay anyway, Took femara 5-9 5mgs , I had 4 failed rounds prior to this round , but those were 2.5 mgs, I don't think I was responding the low dose. This bfp was such a shock , I wasn't expecting faint lines at 9dpo!!!! We BD my whole fertile week! Only BD once daily. I never worried this month , and we had been trying for 2.5 years due to my Pcos , I had a healthy DD in 2010 so I had forgotten how pregnancy felt ...but honestly I kept feeling hopeful , I had tons of faith , I felt good about this month and prayed the whole month through , not one time this month did I feel out... Which eventually I had always felt out at some point in my cycles...but not this one.. Cd14 negative opks , BD CD15 negative opks, BD Cd16 negative opk BD Cd17 positive opk BD Cd18 negative opks, (Ovulation day) BD 1dpo no symptoms. Didn't think I ovulated because I had no pains or cramps ,just mild stomach digging (felt like AF was coming) 2dpo no symptoms , was still hopeful. Not worried. 3dpo Lotiony cm, right ovary twinges , even though I'm positive I ovulated from left ovary.... I that that was weird.. I remember describing them as ovary electric shocks or pulses. Didn't hurt... 4dpo watery cm , insomnia started ... All of a sudden I was up until 4-9 am , no sleep! And wasn't tired ...I thought it was from drinking Pepsi before bedtime.... But the insomnia continued for days after!!! (Weird for me) I usually get a night of insomnia the day before AF.. 5dpo watery cm, insomnia again ...didn't fall asleep until 8am, warm legs.. Still hopeful 6dpo insomnia , didn't fall asleep until other symptoms (I didn't realize insomnia was a symptom until I got my bfp and thought about what was different..) 7dpo insomnia , didn't sleep until 11am!!!! Stuffy nostril for a a hour ? (Still didn't assume pregnancy ) 8dpo bfn !! No symptoms 9dpo atleast 6 reallyyy faint almost non existent lines , didn't believe them at all!! No symptoms... 10dpo lines are MUCH darker and no doubt about it , immediately thanked god a thousand times!!! Femara worked , god heard my prayers!!

12 months TTC and FINALLY a BFP!

Hi everyone! I have been a member of this website for 12 months. I signed up the day my husband and I decided we were TTC. I never expected it would take 12 cycles, and with a CP last July, we were heartbroken. We took 2 months to NTNP, and then started up again TTC in October. Today I am 13dpo and I got my BFP! I can’t stop thanking Jesus! Every month I've read posts like this and thought that it would not be me, but I am truly hoping it's finally the time for all my friends here as well. We used the sperm meets egg plan and a LOT of prayer! I never believed in symptoms in the TWW, but I did feel a few things different this cycle. Starting on 10dpo my temperature shot up above my ovulatory spike. After 11dpo and 12dpo were still very high, my FertilityFriend app said I had a triphasic chart (usually results in pregnancy). Also, all day yesterday (12dpo) my stomach felt unsettled. It was very fluttery, and made me feel weird. I told myself that if my temperature was still up, I would test today. And it was, so I tested and --wouldn’t you know it-- BFP! Praying for a sticky bean and baby dust to you! (Picture: top is HPT and bottom is OPK)

Finally BFP!!!!!

Omg!! I cannot believe I finally made it! I know 7 months doesn't seem like a long time but for me it was an eternity! I felt like I was broken somehow, (even though yes, I know infertile women are not necessarily "broken") I even made a fertility appointments for the month of March! I wasn't keeping track because I had somewhat given up hope, and thought whenever it happens it will happen:) I believe I got my BFP at 9dpo??? Here are my symptoms!: Ovulation day I was nauseas and spotting. I knew to baby dance. We had been like crazy but I made extra sure to the day of and day after for 3 days. Through the two week wait I felt: Stuffy nose Watery eyes Sneezing constantly- like 60 times in a day! I couldn't make it stop for the life of me lol Slight cramping-not like period cramps,beat lighter. Very tired!! I cannot stress enough! And I knew exactly when because usually bedtime is 9:30 to 10:00 and I was so sleepy at 7:30 0.O Agitated and easily annoyed/moody Not a symptom: And last but not least very family oriented....looking up how to make cloth diapers, watching family videos on YouTube etc etc... Cervical mucus: Regular medium amount until about 5 days after I thought was ovulation and then increased. I had a huge amount. It was egg white still and stretchy. Then when I got my BFP, it was like water, constantly felt wet and it was milky white. So that's it!! That is my BFP:):):):

GOD did it:-)

Hi Ladies,im very happy and excited to share my testimony. Ive been seriously ttc for 3 months and faithfully praying to God as this is my 1st pregnancy. There is so many things that when i look back it was just God ordined. I remember how annoyed i was from getting bfn from opks and the last day when i was about to give up something said i should test 1 last time and i did and turned out positive. As late and tired as i was, we bd on cd 18. I used a normal thermometer and at times i didnt even know if im going about the right way but on 9dpo i saw a dip and that was the day i was going to my aunt's funeral. A bitter sweet moment indeed but God is good. Our little baby implanted on 9dpo and throughout i was praying to God guys and He has blessed us. Im 5 weeks 5 days now and still praying for my baby. Ladies faith it until you make it. I remember from the day my period stopped, my DH and i literally prayed over my womb and blessed our child as if he/she has been conceived already. Now faith is speaking things that you havent seen and believing that God will come through for you. Trust Him, He is good and faithful. What i did different this month was: -Faithing it until i made it -prayer -opk -preseed -prenatals AND TRUSTING GOD!! Yes its not going to be easy but when a thought of discouragement creeps in-go to the word of God and convince yourself otherwise!!! I pray for all of you who are still ttc and those that got there BFPs. May God bless all of you. Godly Baby dust to all of you!!!

Hey girls I don't think I posted my bfp last ivf so this time I made it a point too. 6day blast transferred 2. That night of transfer the "ivf cold" hit ( I got this last time but I was like 12dpo ) 1dpo questioning if it's a real head cold or "ivf cold" since it started so soon sneezing, coughing. 2dpo ivf cold continues , sneezing like crazy and occasionally when I sneeze it feels like my uterus is gonna rip open on right side for like 20 seconds 3dpo same as day before, ripping feeling when I have big sneeze or cough ( it seriously hurts as bad as it sounds) heart palpitations . 4 same as before, taking road trip DH peanut butter crackers smell horrible ( I normally like them) headache and nausea going around curves , tired . Start testing wondfo bc I'm Poas addict seen evap line. 5dpo headache, ivf cold continues but getting better, major sneezing fits, the tired is real! Got what I thought was. Another evap line wondfo -friend told me to use frer low and behold line! 6dpo head cold gone, heart palpations, tired frer darker, wondfo line still there but not much color realized I'm a idiot they were expired . So that's what happens with expired internet cheepies the color doesn't show, but you still get a line! 7-14 dpo lines getting darker , tired, heart palpitations continue. 15 dpo same as above but add nausea if I didn't eat constantly 16 dpo tired, heart palpitations beta 342! Extremely different from my fresh transfer all I had with it was ivf cold, chest acne, and I was super energetic that whole pregnancy & I didn't get nausea till 8 weeks . It's all the power of prayer these babies wouldn't happen with out him^^^^

Wow, BFP... Unexpected

DPO 0 - tricky one. It is possible that I actually ovulated 3 days later. However, I can't confirm because I don't track ovulation. There wasn't activity every day, so I'll just skip a bit. DPO 3 - Very intense one-sided ovulation cramps. Was it ovulation? I am unsure. DPO 5 - Excruciating headache. Possibly one of the worst headaches I've ever had. All I could do was sleep. DPO 6 - Headache gone. When brushing my teeth that evening, noticed gums were slightly bleeding. Never happened again. DPO 7 to present (DPO 19) cramping every day. Cramps while not painful were certainly uncomfortable. Would last for 1-2 minutes. Notable adds: Several EXTREMELY vivid dreams. I was constipated (tmi) almost the entire time and would sometimes get winded walking up stairs, strange. Developed a stuffy nose around DPO 14 that does not want to go away. Hpt DPO 13, bfn Felt like menstrual cycle was going to begin, but no. Hpt DPO 17, the faintest BFP you've EVER seen. It required squinting. Hpt DPO 18, faint but decisive. Hpt later on DPO 18 darker. . . . . . . . God is very good!

finally preg after 7months

Ok so i finally just got mt BFP!!! And im so excited after an ectopic pregnancy which i lost my right tube. Ok so after ectopic pregnacy in june i was so eager to get pregnant. I tried fertility apps,cm charting and the having sex everyday during my fertile days. Still nothing. So i made my annual checkup. At the check i explained to her my goal for trying to conceive. At the visit i discovered i had a tilted uterus and i was ovulating at the time. She told me doggy style would be the best position and that dnt worry about only having one tube. So i went home and bd!!. So jan 18th my period came on so at this time frustrated as i was, I erased every app and decided i wasnt going to track nothing, i was mentally drained. So my period was due feb 15th. It came and passed so did the 16,17. So today i decided to take a test which was a bfp!!! I had no symptoms except for wetness and light cramps around expected period day. Oh and i did lots of praying and i left everything in God's hands. So ladies dont get discouraged your bfp maybe right around the corner. Baby dust to all of you!!!!

BFP after 3 miscarriages, 1 BFN & Soy Isoflavones

I can't really tell you per DPO. I took soy isoflavones cycle days 2-6, Jan 8th-12th. Here are the doses, 120, 120, 160, 160, 200. I really thought we missed the mark. I took a pregnancy test Feb 4th because I was hoping for a bday surprise for DH but it was a BFN. Shortly after I started having AF cramps & back pain (which I still have). Well yesterday just the thought of things were making me sick! Then all of a sudden my nipples were sore. I was sure AF was on it's way until I woke up this morning feeling off. Also I get heart palpitations before AF but they tend to taper off as AF gets closer. Well not lately they were getting worse! So to my surprise I got my BFP. God is good and I know that he is in control so whatever happens I'm grateful for the experience!
