BFP! After 2 Months of Trying

My husband and I are both 28, we decided last month we wanted to start trying.
I was shocked this month to receive my BFP!
I was a little confused as to when I ovulated, my "P Tracker" app said it would be around the 19th this month, but I had sore breasts and mild side cramping on the 14th, so I made sure that we BD'ed around that time, in case I had ovulated. I really had no symptoms; I tried not to obsess this month like I did last month. I tried not to go too crazy over every little pang and twang. Really the only symptom I had was sore, larger breasts and my nipples poked out all the time, instead of just when I was cold. I also had hiccups every morning this week, which I didn’t attribute to anything until today. I was also bloated, but just figured it was AF coming. The only thing I did different this month was to make sure to BD at least 3 times a week (every week this month) and made sure to stay lying down for at least 30 mins after. I had been taking a prenatal vitamin, but added a DHA vitamin as well this month. I also stepped up exercising; I started taking a Zumba class and played soccer a few times.
I am still in shock! I can't believe it "worked"!
Oh, I also genuinely prayed a lot this month, I thanked the Lord for all He has blessed me with every night and prayed for a baby. Good luck to everyone else!

TTC Success Male Factor, IUI CLomid

Hi,
I used this site every day for almost two years. It took my husband and I almost two years to conceive our first child. When we started I was 27, husband was 29. After many tests (all "normal" for me, low motility for hubby (think from 0 to 5 on a movement scale sperm was rated a 1), 6 rounds of Clomid, and three IUIs we finally have our baby on the way! I am now 19 weeks pregnant. I did not have any symptoms during the two-week wait. On the day my period was scheduled to arrive, I actually felt like I was going to get my period – same cramps and bloated feeling. I experienced all the same signs and signals leading up to aunt flow- and believe me I was looking for signs. I also charted for a year and a half and this chart was no different than my normal charts. No triphastic graph or anything. I got to know my body pretty well over the two years of trying. There were no signs. We were shocked and thrilled when we took the pregnancy test and it finally said positive. I told myself I need to post that, to give hope to all you ladies out there like me that do not have any signs during the two week wait. Don't count yourself out! :)

Also, for those who do chart… do yourself a favor and stop taking your temperature the second you get your positive on that stick!! My temps went up and down for a few weeks… with no rhyme or reason. All the information did was stress me out about impending miscarriage with every low dip. I stopped taking my temperature on the advice of another charting friend. :)

***I also want to mention that I prayed every day that God would give us a child. Two of my favorite prayers: Prayer to Saint Anne and Prayer to Saint Gerard. God blessed us with this pregnancy and I continue to pray for our baby's health every day. My husband and I are so grateful for this blessing. He is listening to all of us. ****

Pregnant!

I promised myself I would post on this board if I ever got my BFP. I am 36 years old and had an early miscarriage in January. My husband and I were trying for our 3rd. I found out I was pregnant 18 DPO. I really didn't have any symptoms leading up to my BFP. Now I'm sick as a dog. The one thing I did differently this month is pray. I prayed the rosary every single day (prayed to Mary constantly). I would make frequent stops by church asking God to bless us with a child. I also prayed to St. Gerard (the patron saint of pregnant women). I haven't stopped praying and don't plan on it either. God is so good!

Finally My BFP!!! With the Power of PRAYER!! :)

Hello ladies!! So I finally got my BFP 2 days ago at 10dpo and I had to come on here and share my story and symptoms since this website has helped me sooo much during my many tww's!!

I did this EVERY time we bd and BAM..BFP!! :)) I also want to say that this would not have ever happened without Jesus! I prayed every night and asked the lord to please bless me with another baby and I put it in his hands..

BFP After 9 Months!

Wow, I cannot believe I get to finally post on here!

I have been trying to conceive since October 2011. Every month I was getting negatives made me more frustrate, scared, and sad. But I never gave up!

I really thought I was out this month, I did not have many symptoms and I was very loose with my TTC methods.

Some of the few symptoms I did have were:
6-8 DPO: Cold symptoms, thought I was sick but went away in just a few days.
5-12 DPO: EXTREMELY sore breasts. I normally get sore breasts before my period, but this was waaaay harsher, plus it has not gone away.

Got my BFP on 11 DPO! I really know how frustrating it can be when TTC and I know people say if you relax, it will happen. But that is soooo hard to do!

What I did differently this month was:
LOTS OF PRAYER!
Used Soft Cups
Took Fertile CM
Took Vitamin B6, Prenatals, Pomegranate, Zinc, & drank Red Rasberry Leaf tea. Some of these I was doing for months, but I think the soft cups really worked this month because I only BD'ed twice in my fertile period.

Don't give up hope ladies! It will happen!

My Story in a Poem

My story is set to poetry.

I was so excited when on that perfect day, we decided to create you

I was nervous for me.

The day came that I thought all perfection had come, only to be disappointed

I was nervous for you.

I came to realize that miracles take time, so I resolved to be patient in my heart

But I yearned for you.

Years go by, constant disappointment fills my heart with sorrow so very much

And I weep for you.

So many try to comfort me to make me feel normal, although I feel not quite a woman

And I weep for me.

One day I wake up to find a miraculous astonishing surprise of a hope now long forgotten

So I rejoice for you.

Now the nervousness sets in again hoping so much that my dream does not end this day

So I pray for you.

The time comes, after countless life defining years, that my miracle will meet me today

So I yearn for you.

Those special cries and beautiful eyes, ten fingers and ten toes, and the most perfect nose

The amazing miracle is you.

The pain was long and harsh, but I find myself never bitter on these accounts

Because my reward is you.

BFP after 11 Months! First Round of Clomid

DH and I have been trying to conceive for about a year - 8 months in I changed doctors. After blood work I found out I ovulate but it was weak :( First round of Clomid and I got my BFP this morning! This site has been very helpful to me so I wanted to share.

cd 5-9 Clomid (FYI - Clomid made me very weepy and sad this is not my personality at all - felt like I was in a fog - horrible feeling).
BD - cd 5,6,7, 12, 14, 15
OV - cd 16 1-4 DPO - nothing
5 DPO (went for CD 21 blood work) - levels are great! Really weird pains in legs all night - didn't sleep well.
6 DPO - extremely fatigue felt horrible slept a lot
7 DPO - more fatigue
8 DPO - tons of cramps during the day - feels like period, cramps gone by night
9 DPO - stabbing feeling in right side throughout the night. Temp was higher today than any other day (98.21)
10 DPO - crying a lot, weepy and sad, blurred vision, bm, light poking right side at night HPT - negative
11 DPO - crying a lot, weepy and sad, a little cramps and nausea
12 DPO - temp dropped to 97.52 - my lp is usually right around 10 days. I thought I was out and AF was on her way but I didn't have any cramps etc. I remembered reading some people have a dip around this time and it goes right back up so I didn't give up all hope. HPT negative
13 DPO - temp went back up to 98.09 took at regular HPT very very faint +, ran to the store and bought FRER and the BFP showed up! We've been at it non-stop for almost a year. We were getting discouraged but kept praying and kept at it. Now we are praying that it sticks! Calling my doctor on Monday for a blood test.

Over the last 11 months I thought I was pregnant at least 6 times. I had all sorts of "symptoms" that I now believe were connected to my low progesterone. My symptoms were much less this month. The stabbing in my right side and the crying and being sad gave me hope this month. I am not an "overly emotional person" but this month I was getting on my own nerves with all the crying and sadness.

Secondary Infertility; 38 and Overweight

I have deliberated whether to write, as things are so fragile and new, but decided to share my story with the intent to bring hope to others. I am 38; DH is 41 - we conceived our first child 5 years ago without effort. Assuming #2 would be as easy, we decided to wait and well, when we were ready to try or bodies weren't :(

I spent 1 year "on my own" trying, then sought the help of a specialist who turned me a way as I was overweight (I am size 18); so I cried, tried to lose weight, and well, nothing. Found a new Dr, who welcome with open arms.

There was no official reason for our issues. DH was fine, I was fine. We did 5 rounds of Clomid - nothing. Then Clomid with IUI - Nothing. My insurance didn't cover IVF and truthfully I was very nervous to go there. We had one last attempt at IUI - and we started looking into adoption.

This time, we did the Gonal pen and trigger shot. The day of IUI, was a Sunday, and we used the "on call" Dr, who said DH counts were low and not to count on this working. Needless to say, I was devastated.

We DB for the next few days; all the time feeling very sad and hopeless. On about 11 DPO, I was convinced AF was coming. Horrible cramps. I called my Dr to advise we were out.

The only thing different this month as in past, we my boobs - HURT so bad (but I thought was from all the meds)

Sure enough, on 13 DPO we got a faint BFP. We were in shock - denial almost. We are now 7wks (saw heart beat yesterday) and graduated to OBGYN.

The strangest things were the cramps - how horrible and the soreness above.

We have a very strong faith in God and prayed every day. We believe this is a gift from God and hope our little bean sticks with us.

Don't lose faith - there is hope!! God Bless & baby dust to all. 

BFP

I can't believe I'm finally writing instead of reading this site. I had barely any symptoms this month a little moodiness here and there but nothing a normal female doesn't experience. All I did was kept taking my prenatals drank raspberry leaf tea and boom here I am pregnant.

I didn't have any real symptoms this month we just let go and prayed. I woke up this morning with no period and I have a regular 26 to 28 day cycle today was day 28 I didn't even track ovulation so I tested 5 hours later on. $ store test and two bright pink lines popped up within 60 seconds. I took another 2 hours later and got the same results.

YAY me & hubby couldn't be more happy we've been TTC for a year & I'm upset I can't make a doctor's appointment until Tuesday because its memorial weekend uugghh. I can't wait and finally God has blessed me. Keep your head up ladies.

Baby Dust to all. 

TWW Symptoms

Wow!!! So excited to be posting on here. I really wanted to share my story because I used this site loads when I was (not so) patiently TTC. My dh and I tried for 5 months with no luck and then this month I got my first BFP!

In terms of symptoms I didn't note them by day the main things I noticed were very sore boobs and being massively tired. I thought it was because I had worked extra hard at work but now think otherwise! I tested the day before my AF was due as we had a weekend away where it would have been tricky and I got a faint line, testing again a few days later I got a really clear BFP!!! Super excited.

Things we did differently this month include using app to work out my fertile days, period tracker it's called. Also my DH started taking well man conception vitamins and I forwarded a low gi 7 day diet plan from my last period to now, cutting out chocolate, cakes, biscuits etc. I also prayed. I know how hard and frustrating it is when you want so badly to be pregnant and the disappoint AF can bring.

The stories on here really touched me and kept me going when I started to lose faith, hope mine does the story.

Wishing everyone huge amounts of baby dust xxxxxx
