16 Months, One Surgery, and 3 Rounds of Clomid = BFP

Ah! I can't believe I get to finally do this and say "hey, I'm pregnant!". This was our 16th month TTC. Last June I had laparoscopic surgery to check for endometriosis. I did not have that but what they did find was 3 small fibroids on my uterus and a partially blocked left fallopian tube. 2 of the fibroids were removed and dr. was unable to take the third one out. I felt so much better knowing what the issues were. Part of my stress was thinking that something was seriously wrong with me. I have a perfect 29 day cycle. I am so exact down to the hour! My Dr. reassured me that everything was great but want to try clomid anyways. 3 rounds of that, took pills on cycle days 3-7. This month I also tried acupuncture. I highly recommend it! It gives you a chance to relax! Which is what I did three times a week. While I sat there with needles in me I got to pray. I am a Christian and knew I just had to wait for Gods timing. I put all of this in His hands and let Him worry about it instead of me putting all the pressure on myself.

My symptoms are pretty small. I wouldn't even be able to tell if I didn't have a positive test. I have also been taking a prenatal, calcium, folic acid, and B6 vitamin every day.

Cycle day 3-7 - clomid
Did the deed every other day till I got a positive ovulation and then did IT twice a day. Also one day after for good measure. (with Pre-Seed every time)
Cycle Day 14 - ovulated on right side (my good side)
DPO 6 - woke up with a very sharp shooting pain through my right tube. Lasted a couple of second, I rolled over and pain went away. (implantation?)
DPO 8 - extra bloody gums. I have sensitive teeth anyways but this was extra sensitive! (my dentist has told me that hormones do affect gums)
DPO 11 - finally got my Internet cheapies in the mail and I had to test. IS THAT A LINE OR A SHADOW?!?!
DPO12 - test again, LINE IS STILL THERE. Very faint! Still not sure if I can trust these things. I'm only used to seeing negatives that I didn't think a positive stick was possible. I got a little test crazy and started testing all day. Finally went out and bought First Response and Clear Blue Digital. Tested with both PREGNANT!!! I can believe it. A lot of crying and relief that this process is over. Then my mind went quickly to stressing about having a healthy baby. ;) I just keep testing and line keeps getting darker.

My husband and I have shared the news with are parents and are waiting to share the news with close friends and family until first ultrasound at 5 weeks. I have to have this done to make sure it's not a tubal because of my blockage. I'm due July 17th!

Even with everything I went through I do realize I had it easy compared to some. Those "some" will always have a piece of my heart!

BFP... the Best Day of Our Life!

Hey all,
We got married in June 2012 and been trying ever since. Got BFP this morning and couldn't wait to tell you all! I am having very bad cold and runny nose but want to share my story :)
OD- I think it was 11th Oct, didn't feel anything. No BD as we had been doing since 6th Oct, we used KY jelly to make things smooth. We had decided that if it doesn't happen this month then we will use Pre-Seed next month.
2DPO- I had lunch at a restaurant and threw up after having heartburn and headache for almost 4 hours. I never had food poisoning before and this was very unusual for me, was feeling very weak and slept rest of the day
3DPO- BD and had my legs up for at least 20 minutes, well this was the trend after every BD
7-13DPO- had mild cramps, sometimes tugging feeling on the left lower side
14-15 DPO- very bad cramps, thought AF is planning to come, as my period was expected on 26th
No sign of AF for two days 27-28th Oct and then we decided to take the pregnancy test and YAY with Wal-Mart early pregnancy test kit we got both lines in first 30 seconds
So be happy and don't stress and it will happen, well keep exercising and eating healthy, BABY DUST to all :)

Ten Long Months of Trying... Finally Two Pink Lines!

I was beginning to think I would never have the chance to post on this website, but my day has finally come. After ten long months of trying and a whole lot of tears, I finally got my BFP! I waited until I was three days late to test because I couldn't handle anymore disappointment. I cannot even put the feeling into words of seeing those two little pink lines appear. It was a mixture of amazement, bliss, fear, and craziness. I screamed from the bathroom so loud that DH came running! The lines literally showed up in 5 seconds… no three minutes needed. Gotta love First Response!

In these past ten months, I really was starting to worry that something was wrong. I even made an appointment with a fertility specialist that I am very happy to cancel. I had a bunch of blood work done and a sonogram and my husband had a sperm analysis. All the results came back fine, so we just couldn’t understand why it wasn’t happening! But it finally did! As my husband says, we really “got it in” this month. But I prayed every day and I know God answered my prayer.

I really had barely any symptoms… but here’s what I did notice…
CD 11 - BD
CD12 - BD
CD 13 - BD (I think this was ovulation day)
CD 14 – BD
CD 15 – BD
CD 18 – boobs started getting sore, but they always do around this time of the month. Thought for sure I was out.
CD 19 – 27 - creamy cm
CD 28 - I went to buy tampons.
CD 29 – late period? Eggwhite cm shows up… very weird… getting suspicious. No cramps? Very constipated.
CD 30 – still late… no cramps… too scared to test. Can’t bear the sight of another BFN. Very constipated.
CD 31 – still late! Finally get the nerve to test! BFP immediately!

I am still in shock! I really had no clue that I even had a shot this month until I missed my period. Here are the things I tried to get pregnant…
Drank grapefruit juice
Read 50 Shades of Gray lol
Used Pre-Seed
Made sure my butt was in the air
Tried to sleep for a few hours before getting up
And the most embarrassing of all…. this month was the only time I actually used a vibrator when DH was done. I swear the orgasms did it! Sorry for the TMI… but I would definitely invest in one!

Have faith… all is possible. Sticky baby dust to everyone and I pray that you all get your BFPs soon. :)

BFP After One Year

Took Clomid for 4 rounds after being told I do not ovulate. The 4th round worked! My 21 day progesterone was only 11 and my doc said I ovulated but with a number so low I thought there was no shot. I also prayed this month more than I ever have. The pain of not getting pregnant was becoming unbearable and God answered when I really needed him to.

I tested the day after missed period and had a faint line and have been testing for the last 6 days with positive getting darker each day.

Symptoms: sore bbs 3 days after missed af, nausea everyday, tired.

Don't give up ladies.

BFP on 4th Cycle Off BC, 3rd Cycle Trying

I am so excited to share my BFP story. I have been on this site reading others stories for several months now. Every month I was determined that I was pregnant only to be let down with AF showing up right on time.
Every month I have had so many symptoms, everything you can imagine.
This month was so different. Honestly I did not think I would get a BFP because it was so different. I have not felt anything at all. Usually my boobs are very sore, bad cramping, acne, and sore abd.
This month I have had only acne all the time with a few off the wall things here and there.
We BD the day before ovulation, twice on O day and the day after.
4 DPO I had 2 strong cramps in the evening.
8 DPO I noticed that I had a small amount of EWCM (that was very odd).
13 DPO I had a really sharp pain on the side of my right boob.
After that I really felt like I was out. I was not feeling anything at all.
15 DPO my period was due and nothing
16 DPO I got my BFP!!!
I wanted to post this to let everyone know that the only thing my DH and I did was pray that God would bless us with a baby if it were his will. I have read so many stories of couples trying for months and even years and it really had me worried that it might be that way for us. I pray everyday that those of you that are TTC will get your blessing from God soon.
Also remember that you don't always have symptoms. That is what put me through the loop was not having any of the symptoms like I did in the previous months.
Good luck and God bless with lots of baby dust to all!!

BFP After 12 Months TTC, 1 MMC & 1 CP

Sooo happy to be posting here!!! My husband and I have been TTC since Nov 11. During that first cycle I actually got pregnant with twins, but unfortunately we couldn't find a heartbeat at 8 weeks. In February I had a chemical pregnancy. I was heartbroken/depressed and have been trying to get pregnant ever since then...failing month after month. Last week I was finally able to schedule a meeting with a fertility specialist (I had to wait one year until they would schedule me) which was suppose to happen next week. There were a few things that I did differently this cycle:
- CD 3- 12: Detox Tea, Red raspberry leaf tea, Pregnancy prep vitamin x2, prenatal vitamin & I worked out a couple times a week
- CD 13- Present: I stopped taking everything except my prenatal on CD13, just in case this was my month
- TMI alert!!: My DH & I had sex CD 7, 8, 10, 12-14; We did positions that are "suppose" to put the sperm closer to the cervix (missionary/doggie style)..maybe this helped, maybe it didn't... and we used Pre-Seed

Here are my DPO results:
DPO 1: Nothing
DPO 2-3: Very sore nips, typical for me after AF; usually only lasts a couple days
DPO 4: less sore nips, gas
DPO 5: Nothing
DPO 6-7: AF cramps; I was SURE AF was on the way, I always start to get little cramps 1 week out
DPO 8: Nothing
DPO 9: constant AF cramps / heaviness in stomach (usual for me)
DPO 10-11: nips slightly sore again...this made me wonder a little if I was preggo, but I dismissed the idea because I had been wrong so many times. With my other pregnancies sore nips was always a sign towards the end of my cycle
DPO 12: sore nips /AF cramps
DPO 13: sore nips, AF cramps, sore throat, AM: took Wondofo HPT just on a whim (first time I've ever made it to DPO 13 w/o testing) positive!!! OMG!!!
PM: Took clearblue digital & early response HPT Positive!!! Told my hubby who was shocked!!!

I honestly had resigned myself to not getting pregnant. I didn't think it was going to happen this month. The "just relax" thing wasn't what worked for me. I still felt just as sad/weepy/anxious as I had in previous months, but I did not feel/act as frantic as I had before (constantly using my OPKs, HPTs, charting, checking pregnancy sites) This is probably because I was moving to a new state during this time and didn't have access to the internet and wanted to "try" to take a break from thinking about baby making for a month... But I'll admit it was still on my mind 24/7.

We've prayed for this baby for so long. I just can't believe it & I am hoping and praying that this is our take home baby!
Remember every month is a new month & try not to get discouraged.
Good luck ladies!

BFP - 13 DPO!

I have been reading the BFP stories on this site for the last 2 months. My husband and I have been TTC for 7 months. This month we used PreSeed for the first time, I laid down with hips up for about 30 mins afterwards, we did the SMEP, and I used ClearBlue Ovulation kit. We also prayed that God would bless us with a baby! I did not ovulated until CD25 which is really late into my cycle. I usually have 30-34 day cycles. This morning, at 13 DPO, I got my BFP! We feel so blessed! I am going to list the few symptoms that I had up until my BFP... but there were very few!

1-4 DPO: I didn't notice anything out of the normal for me, I had a few cramps but I always get those around ovulation time.

5-6 DPO: My eyes were watering and itching so badly, I felt like I was getting a cold because I had stuffy nose and scratchy throat.

7-10 DPO: A few more cramps, my vagina felt like I was getting a yeast infection (itchy but no discharge besides the normal)

11-12 DPO: Tired and cramps... I thought for sure my period was about to start.

13 DPO: Slept until 10:45 ... I NEVER do that!!! Woke up and POAS to see a BFP!!!!

I pray that those of you who are TTC will get to soon experience the joy we experienced this morning! God Bless! Baby dust to all!


Hello all you lovely ladies! So excited to share my BFP news with you all, since this site was so helpful during my antsy two-week wait! I kept careful track of all my symptoms, and got my BFP at 5:30 this morning at 13 DPO! My husband and I feel very, very blessed.
My cycles are pretty regular, usually about 25 days long. I have very noticeable eggwhite CM when I ovulate, so we BD on that day and the day after. From there, here is how my symptoms played out:

Terrible headache and food aversion, 2dpo
Right side ovulation pain, 3 dpo
Small flutters/twinges/electrical charges in lower belly, 4-6 dpo
Scratchy throat, slightly stuffy nose, felt like cold was coming but never really did 4-6 dpo
Terrible dry eye feeling, 6 dpo
Trouble staying asleep in early am, (could just be my racing mind!) 5 and 6 dpo
Small amount of thick discharge, 6 dpo
More noticeable cramps all day, more in evening, 7dpo
Tender, sore breasts, few slightly bloody nose blowing results, 7dpo
Breast less sore, but mild cramping throughout the day, overall fullness in lower belly, 2 sharp pains in vagina today, 8dpo
Very vivid dream overnight, slight right side cramping throughout morning, evening cramps on left side, terrible mood, clear-to-cloudy/yellow cm, 9 dpo
Woke up feeling like AF was coming, generally icky pre-period belly all day, clear cm, (I am usually very dry just before my period), 10 dpo
Woke up really expecting period due to overall icky belly; feels like day 1 of my period all day long, dry eyes in afternoon, full, bloated feeling, feels like period is about to flow, 11 dpo
AF due today; Feels like first day of period, crampy and a bit icky; terrible diarrhea; bought pregnancy tests!
BFP!!!!!, 13 dpo

Hope this helps someone out there, I sure loved reading all of your posts these past two weeks. Praying for a sticky baby!
Babydust to you all! XO

I am so HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been over a year of TTC and I will be 40 in one week. I have had one miscarriage 5 months ago and have PCOS. Starting seeing an RE and I just got my BFP. This site helped me so much in giving me hope so I wanted to share that hope with those of you out there waiting. Things I did differently: I prayed more, used Pre-Seed, 2nd round of clomid (this time I was monitored and used a trigger), lost over 14lbs, took more folic acid, we BD the night of the trigger and the next night....and that was it:) We were told to BD the night after the trigger and the next morning didn't work out exactly like that..... I had an US at 10CD and it showed 4 follicles..... maybe we will have twins. I have to say I thought I had many more symptoms last month.

1-6 dpo- Lots of cream CM (this was present my whole last cycle up to AF)
7dpo- CM changed to more watery and continues to be that way
9dpo- Lots of nausea around 10am and couldn't stand the thought of eggs would make me gag. Took first response (I knew it was way toooo early) got a BFN.
10dpo- Cramping... and burning sensation below the belly button.
11 dpo- Took a first response with FMU and BFN (was very disappointed)
12-13 dpo- Very sensitive to smell, continued burning and cramping feeling but different than AF... also I have the sense of calm that came over me... just felt very very calm....constipation (which is unusual for me before AF)
14dpo- Around 4pm had nausea and feeling a bit more tired.... 9:27pm took a first response and BFP!!!!!!!! Sooooooo Happy. Now I just need to go get the beta's done, will be calling the RE office first thing.
Praying for this little one or ones to stick and stay for a healthy 9 months..... well really 8 months now :)

Just also wanted to say my RE said to count the first day after the trigger as 1 dpo.
