Finally Get My BFP Today!!

Hi All,

I am shocked, excited, happy, nervous and a lot more emotions going through me right now! Yes, I am 4 days late and got my BFP this evening. Now for my symptoms..... Honestly, this month I felt nothing. This is my 3rd Clomid cycle (100mg). My doc asked me to take it from day 3-7, but I missed day 3 and started day 4-8, did not check ovulation days, missed the day 10 & 11 of possible ovulation days, did not keep my legs up in the air for half n hr, I DID NOTHING!!
I have been reading and going crazy with all the information, but I feel it will happen when the time is right. In fact I felt I was pregnant last month for sure, I had all the symptoms - breast tenderness, cramping, bitter taste, headaches, bloated and gassy, hunger, etc. But af showed her face, I figured I had all those symptoms due to high progesterone levels.
This month had none, last week my breasts started getting tender, nauseous since 2-3 days, cramping like af cramps, I definitely thought I’m out this month! I didn’t even get any implantation bleeding. Today on my way back, I just stopped and got a test to just make sure and I cannot believe my eyes!! BFP!!
What I did different this month? I prayed! I’m sure he will answer ur prayers! Good luck to everyone and baby dust to all of u!

BFP Cycle 4 of TTC #2

So thankful for this site and to all the women who have shared their tww symptoms. It's a long road, but all the hard work and time waiting is worth it. God had a plan for me and this was our month.

Age 27, DF 29
TTC #2 since 4/12
Lmp 6/22-6/26
Cycle length: irregular 26-28 mostly, occasional 33 days
Fertile window: 7/2-7/9 (cd 11-18)
Bd on cd 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15 then stopped

No opk used, just went with instinct so O day may not be accurate, but I did feel sharp pain 2wks after af leading me to believe this was the day I ovulated 7/5 (cd14)

cd13: bd

cd14: sharp pain, made me jump (I think this was when I ovulated!)

cd15/1dpo: bd

2-4dpo: nothing

5-6dpo: backache and exhausted

7dpo: blurred vision (felt like I was going to blackout), breast sensitivity, cramps, increased appetite

8-9dpo: nothing

10dpo: sore bbs, sleepy

11dpo: sensitive/sore bbs, shortness of breath in the morning just from daily routine, tough time working out (threw up after only ½ hr light cardio, usually I can do an hr. of intense cardio)

12dpo: tired, blurred vision when getting up, backache while washing dishes that evening, sore bbs

13dpo: heartburn, acid reflex, sore bbs

14dpo: Heartburn, coworkers said I look like I’m glowing and asked if I was pregnant, sore/achy bbs

15po: No af this morning. During lunch break went to dollar tree to buy test. Shaking with nerves finally my BFP!!

Backache, heartburn and acid reflex were the symptoms I had this month that I didn't have in previous months.

Things I did different this month:
• Prayed to God, with him anything is possible
• Gave up my daily glass of wine
• Started taking prenatal vitamins
• Less coffee
• Didn’t visit relatives or talk to friends much this month. I think this brought my stress level way down.
• Figured out this month that bd can be simple and I didn’t have to “make love” a few quickies got the job done.

BFP After Six Months!!!

Hey all, I have been stalking this site for so long. I never thought I would post here. Six months is not a long time, but my DH and I was so tensed!!! I had a very regular cycle (31 days) and I ovulate on cd17 every month. So I was really confused when I did not get pregnant and now it seems like God has heard our prayers.

Major symptoms included increased thick light yellowish cervical mucus during 1-4 dpo. There were no noticeable symptoms for me during 5-10 dpo. I had stopped obsessing with symptom spotting :) I checked on 8 dpo and it was a bfn. I lost hope and I was out of sticks. On the afternoon of 12 dpo, I just thought I would check with a clearblue digital ovulation stick as I had many left. In some blogs, I have read an OPK could detect hcg and to my surprise it was a smiley face :) I was in deep confusion because I cannot confirm w/o a preg test. In the evening we bought a frer and tested and I saw two lines. I am still in shock!!! cried a lot!
thanked God.

**Things that we did differently
We had tried the 'Sperm meets Egg plan' this month accurately. I guess it worked.
I had less cervical mucus, so I made it a point to drink 8 glasses of water everyday and I could really see the difference. I thought it was crucial. I didn't use Pre-Seed. Lots of prayers and kept a positive attitude throughout the month. So don't lose hope friends!!!

BFP After Miscarriage and With Prayer!

In February my husband and I lost our first child due to a missed miscarriage. This was a totally heart breaking experience for us both and I'd be lying if I said apart of me isn't still fearful that this wonderful BFP could have the same tragic outcome. However I decided to trust in God, which is a massive step for me as until yesterday I was not a believer. We had been trying ttc for around 4months, my husband is a Christian and suggested I pray. I wanted to be pregnant again and this time to have a baby to keep, sooo I started praying most days. It can't hurt? I thought. Well :) this month was our BFP and I'm starting to feel that it’s thanks to me letting go of all my anguish with God for our previous miscarriage and instead asking for his love and help.
1-2 DPO. Tugging and slight cramping sensation in right ovary.
3-5 DPO. Nothing.
6-8. DPO. Increasing stomach pains in right side and cramping, with right side lower back pain - like AF. Some breast soreness and tingling but not consistent. Diarrhea (sorry tmi) and waves of nausea. Went to the doctors thinking I had a kidney infection and she suggested I may be pregnant, however to early to tell. Took a home test with first morning urine (as always) BFN.
9-10 DPO. Soreness in breasts still, really thirsty and really hungry. Smells are starting to bother me more and I nearly threw up at work when I picked up a residence used tissue (not like me at all, its my job to do personal care). Took a test and BFN.
11 DPO. Nothing, starting to think I'm out and that it was all just wishful thinking.
12 DPO. Breasts and nipples tingling, eating more and thirsty. I'm 7 stone and 5'4, never been a big eater but suddenly I could not stop lol. Took a test BFN.
13 DPO. Having some light pulling sensations in right ovary, still have diarrhea and occasional breast pain. Decide to test again, BFN. That day I decided that I needed to prove to myself whether or not these symptoms where in my head so I splashed out and bought a first response early detection.
14 DPO. Took a test at 6am in the morning using first response and BFP !! Faint line but still a line. Also a very very very faint line appeared on cheapy £1 store one. Continued symptoms all day, sore boobs, hungry and some cramps on right side. Also feeling very tired.
15 DPO. Woke up to two spots on my face! Eeek! And swollen breasts, decided that the hormones may have increased so retested using both pound store and first response.....**drum roll please** Two much much clearer BFP :) :) :) :) :D :D :D :D

So so happy and I will be praying each day for God to keep this little bean safe and sticky.

After Four Years of Trying :) God is Good

I love this site !!!!!!! I have done the same thing whoever is reading this now.. OBESSING lol ... My background is as follows : DF and I have never used any form of BC first two years didn't really think about having a baby.. I already have an eleven year old.. Her father passed when she was six.. So we were content with her. Two years ago it hit us HARD WE WANT ANOTHER CHILD.. EVERY SINGLE MONTH WAS TORTURE ... It was heartbreaking every time AF showed up. After the first year passed with no success we went to three different doctors.. All three gave a wonderful healthy bill of health to both of us ... A few times I found myself screaming at DF WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME I FEEL CRAZY IS GOD PUNISHING US.. and it seemed like everyone I knew was PREGO without hardly even trying... So I kept praying and planning our wedding ... Two cycles ago I broke down and bought Pre-Seed, even thought I didn't think I needed it... We were refused Clomid bc we were in perfect health.. So I needed something lol First cycle was a bust that stupid AF second cycle with Pre- Seed I noticed my AF ended with brown discharge but I knew I was getting close something changed in my body ... Third cycle with Pre-Seed goes as follows
June 7th Cycle day 1
June 11th end of AF again brown discharge last two days

O day was 21
BD 19,20,21,22 AS ALWAYS FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS I have always made sure we get it in lol We were pros lol
1dpo. Nothing
2dpo. Nothing
3dpo. Slight cramps
4-10dpo NOTHING except in a very good mood and no zits I questioned but blew it off REMEBER I'M CRAZY LOL
11 dpo. Craving potato twists from AppleBees .. still didn't think much I love salty foods during PMS
12 dpo woke up with huge breasts.. My cycle was running 29 to 31 so I thought oh crap another 30+ CYCLE
13 dpo. Very hot sweating not the usual cold sweats I was burning up
14 dpo. Still no AF at this point I'm in shock and denial hungry every two hours heartburn and super sleepy craving potato twists AGAIN
15 dpo. Woke up burning up. Bbs super. super. sore. DF told me to test while at work

I got BFP. I'm still in shock it’s been a hard two years and I give God the glory ... Thanks to Pre-Seed for the confidence boost haha

2 Years of Infertility

Clomid and IUI

Decided this month to completely stay off the Internet. Went on vacation day after IUI and felt completely relaxed. Prayed as often as I thought about it.

Always looked waaaay too much into symptoms. These past 14 days I felt a little tired (but it was really hot out), my boobs felt a little sore (but was wearing a new bra). I defiantly did notice some mild cramping 13 to 14 dpo. Couldn't be happier. God is good. Giving all those couples out there the hope that I tried to hold on to month after month.

BFP Thank U Lord

I can’t believe I’m finally writing here!!

1-4dpo nothing
5-9dpo af like cramps and back pain like those I get during af.. also some were located on one side only.. it was very new to me!! Also vivid weird dreams started!
10dpo cramps continued with the back pain.. high sense of smell, eating a lot, getting tired easily I told myself I was making it up.. was in denial.. vivid dreams continued, they would wake me up
11dpo smelt a wet carpet and almost threw up .. it was disgusting. Frequent urination .. I mean aloooot even if I hadn’t had anything to drink. Cramps and back pain again on and off every 20 mins.. and after urination..
12dpo forced myself to take a pregnancy test thinking it was way too early but.. there it was the faintest line ever!! I was soo happy I cried..
13-15dpo still faint lines but slightly getting darker...hope it sticks..

What I think helped..: First, if ur a believer like me.. I prayed and prayed and prayed for god to give me a child.. Second, I was through my second pack of pregnacare conception.. I think it helped regulate my ovulation! Green tea everyday. Cut out caffeine for 3 months now.. laid down with my feet in the air with a timer of 30 mins.. I realized I never laid that much.. I thought I did but I didn’t have a timer.. so it wasn’t exact..

Baby dust to all

BFP at 42 Yrs Old and 1 Tube!

I had and ectopic DUAL pregnancy about 4 years ago there was an egg in each tube the doctor said she has never seen anything like that in her entire career and she tried to show me pics!! I was mortified over her excitement but the end result was me losing my right tube and have some kind off shots in both leggs to flush the other tube out... I was told the tube I have left had to much scar tissue and pregnancy was not possible my husband and I tried for a couple years then I gave up when I turned 40 it was to hard and to depressing made me feel like I was not women enough to get pregnant... well today I got my BFP!!!! My husband and I had s** 1 X this month!!!! guess that is all it really takes!! I knew 2 days later here are my dpo....
0 dpo lots of leaking guess I didn't lay down long enough but it was 3 in the afternoon and I wasn't trying had no reason to lay there I jumped right up after...
1 dpo felt weird butterflies and nervous
2 dpo cramps, more butterflies and nerves, grouchy
3 dpo cramps, very dry usual have cm but dry as a desert..lol.. sharp pains on left side
4 dpo cramps in the middle I never get that, still dry, butterflies, NAUSEA, dizzy spells thought it was from the heat, woke up to pee in the middle of night never ever happens. I never eat before noon but I woke up hungry and stayed hungry!
5 dpo shooting pains here and there just ripping there last a second but leave an impression like what the H... was that! Nausea on and off all day, woke up to pee at 3 am, boobs start to feel sore but that always happens right after ov till af this month started later...Hungry the hunger actually wakes me up now!
6 dpo boobs feel heavy right in the middle sore, woke up at 5 am in the middle of an "O" sorry tmi but it actually hurt I now know how my husband feels!! LOL and my stomach was growling!! Nausea is now full vomiting comes fast! then its gone! weird! stomach has weird butterfly's still like in high school first crush..? got a pimple NEVER BREAK OUT! blue veins showing up on boobs running through nipples , comes and goes I check every hour haha...
7 dpo symptoms are full on have everything peeing, nausea, dizzy , metal taste, hungry but nothing appeals to me, veins, hips hurting... BFN on an expensive clearblue test sad but think heck it's wrong I know it!
8 dpo same symptoms but butterflies are worse feel so nervous!!! not sure why nothing is different another test and another BFN....
9 dpo same symptoms just 2x increase in all of them peeing , hungry, cramps, veins they come and go as they please I check even at DD bathrooms :) that is the main symptom I am holding on to cause all the others I can find a different explanation but not the veins! so I check them several times and hour!!
10 dpo nausea has subsided starting to doubt myself just woke up feeling so NOT pg, but then the veins reassure me, boobs feel bigger and heavier I have fair skin nips are getting a little darker but think it’s my imagination maybe, horny like an aching horny starting to feel like a man in the morning when he gets a stiffy! lol sorry it's weird though and a little painful!
11 dpo decided to test everything is the same but symptoms are not as extreme so ran home from work bought a cvs brand 2 sticks peed on it nothing happened oops didn't pee enough guzzle a bottle of water pee on it again ... 30 sec BFN throw it in trash, go to bed at 5pm depressed.....
12 dpo wake up have to pee so bad 7 am get new stick 30 sec BFN throw it in trash, walk around the house feeling confused and sad 3 minutes I decide to get them outta trash to wrap them up so no one finds them when emptying trash and notice something.. BOTH are positive big + on both!! start to cry hysterically!!! can't stop 2 hours I cried!! then went and got a different kind that states the word pregnant or not pregnant.... 1 minute big PREGNANT!!! called doctor they sent me to lab for blood won't get that till Monday but who cares I know it's positive and feel so relieved that wait is over! pure torture 2ww is!!! I have a 30 day cycle and my af isn't due for about 3 days still ..
so to all those women that have more to overcome than just timing it can be done I am proof I am the most unfertile person I know have only 1 tube over 40 and it happened but all that trying is ruining it sometimes you gotta just hope and pray I prayed and God finale answered! Good luck to everyone may all your prayers be answered!

BFP After 8 months!!

I've always longed to post my symptoms on here, but I never thought it would happen. I'm 21 and my husband is 25. We started NTNP in November and in January we started hardcore TTC. I had been charting and knew my BBT was low (96.3-96.9 in follicular phase & 97.0-97.7 in luteal phase). Finally I decided to go to the obgyn/fertility doctor because I had quite a few hypothyroid symptoms. I had my blood test on June 27. On June 28 I found out I had a borderline underactive thyroid, TSH was 4.87 and apparently that can still make it super hard to conceive. Everyone including my doctor said it would be a few months at least, until my TSH got down to around 1-2. He was glad that I came in. My prolactin was also a bit elevated, which can cause infertility. June 29 I started synthroid. I was so relaxed this month because I knew we were figuring things out...and July 2 for fun (I had no reason to test) I took a test and there were 2 lines that I've been praying for so long. I broke down into tears and bawled my eyes out, praying to God that this was really it and my sticky baby.

I didn't chart this month, I took temperatures at random days and know I ovulated around cd22-cd23 which was June 22/June 23. The second test I took, 2 hours later, was an FRER and I held my pee for 2 hours while drinking 20 oz of water and still - 2 dark, dark lines popped up.

Things I did differently this month: I took soy isoflavones cd3-7. Apparently they have an 85% bfp rate. After I took them I knew I had a thyroid issue so I figured it wouldn't work for me. I also used Pre-Seed (3rd month using it but this time I used the 3ml it recommends). I also babydanced every other day and RELAXED, only because I knew things were being done to help. I had no expectations of a BFP this month, and every other month, I did. But I will 100% say this is a miracle, God gave me this child. I have not been very patient, but this month I was and God granted me this little baby.

The only symptom I had before my bfp was around 7dpo, when I was laying in bed that night and felt really light period-like cramps for about a minute or so. Then it felt a bit sore until I fell asleep, when I would roll over. Honestly, nothing else!!! Good luck to everyone. It *will* happen!!!

BFP!!

I am 25, my DH is 26. We have been married 3.5 years and conceived on our 2nd TTC cycle. I had my Mirena removed in April 2012 and waited until my first real period to "go for it" to give my body time to adjust. My lovely Mirena had been in place for 3 years and she was amazing because she kept AF from ever visiting.

I stalked this website the first month for my two week wait and compared each and every symptom. The next month of TTC, I kept myself busy and went back to enjoying my life. I prayed and asked God to bless my husband and I whenever we were ready. We also used Pre-Seed (which I love by the way-- just don't use too much). I read on a website that CM before the BFP or BFN is not a reliable pregnancy sign so I stopped concerning myself with that.

Here is my TWW:
1-5 dpo: nothing
6 dpo: irritability and nausea
7 dpo: cramps (implantation?)
8-11 dpo: nothing
12 dpo: period cramps and nausea (almost threw up my vitamins...very odd for me as I have only thrown up once in my life)
13 dpo: period cramps, nausea, bloating, fatigue, headache, pimples on face. On the road to an all-day meeting I took a sip of V8 juice that did not settle well in my stomach... I had to force it down... again very odd for me. I crashed on the couch when I got home and was slammed with a huge headache and fatigue. I rarely cramp during AF and my face only breaks out when I ovulate so I knew something was different as my face was really broken out. I usually feel completely energized before my period, attractive, clear skin, great mood... this time I knew something was different, but I didn't want to believe it.
14 dpo: cramps, day of missed period.. doubted I was pregnant, but definitely felt different. I also felt a little tired. Bought a pregnancy test.
15 dpo FMU BFP!!! My husband told me to test, but I was too scared to see a negative. I poas and made him check the results. Cramped all day..

I hope this helps give you patience. Give your troubles and concerns to Him because He will make it happen. Relax and enjoy the ride!!
