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 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!!!


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!!

I'm Finally Pregnant and I knew It!!!!!

Hello ladies.... like most of you I have stalked this website. I have been TTC since Jan with no luck. I started to feel like what is wrong with me? Well after research I decided to try evening primrose oil, opk and Pre-Seed and BAM BFP!!!! So here are my symptoms that I can remember.
-2 dpo positive OPK.....BD with preseed using applicator O day- cramps like crazy and relaxed (was on vacation with the family).....BD with Pre-Seed using applicator
1-6 dpo constipation and crampy feeling
7-9 dpo headaches and smell food like crazy and think its strange, crampy
10 dpo- starting to feel changes to bbs and first start to think hmmm maybe I'm pregnant but it may be all in my head as I have had many "symptoms" for several months. I also never have sore bbs so it was odd for me. Also very hungry my partner told me I was eating like a piggy lol
11 dpo- extreme nausea and tired not sleepy but extremely tired.
12 dpo- my mom told me I'm preggo and I should take a test! I was cranky and had increased heart rate. Also all the same symptoms crampy, headache, tired and hungry
13 dpo- take a clearblue digital with FMU and in 2 mins "pregnant" I absolutely couldn't believe it!!!
I really thought it was all in my head like all the other months but I honestly felt different. I had symptoms that I really couldn't "imagine" like prior months. People say you can't know before you miss AF but my AF is due in 4 days...listen to your body ladies! I attribute my BFP to Pre-Seed and prayer. I have no ewcm during ovulation but knew I did bc of positive OPK and cramps. I think Pre-Seed helped the spermies get to where they needed to go! Ladies listen if you wanna get a BFP pray first and use Pre-Seed second. I don't chart etc bc I felt that it's too much for me but first month with Pre-Seed and BFP so it was worth every penny! Plenty of baby dust to you all and your BFP is coming believe it!

A Miracle BFP

Hello ladies as you are reading my story I would like to tell you I've been reading the stories in this website for a year thinking: Would it ever be my turn? Would I ever become a mommy? Although I really wanted to convince me it would happen one day all the bfn that I saw month after month it was really discouraging me. Ok so every month I ovulate between cd 14 and 16. So this month was totally different. My husband was going to a trip on my "suppose" fertile days and I was sooo sad cause I was sure this month was already a failure! So the week that my husband was away I was having a lot of ewcm and a few days after I was dry. So on cycle day 25 my husband comes back we have the best sex in a longgg time. I was not thinking of a baby at all cause in my head ovulation day was way pass right?? Wrong!! After everything my husband ask me if I’m ovulating. I say of course not. He ask me to take an ovulation test cause he told me went he was on his trip (which was a trip from our church to preach the gospel) he prayed to God that my ovulation day would happen the day he comes back and guess what??? When I did the test I couldn’t believe my eyes. The test line on the ovulation test was so so soooo much darker than the control line that I just couldn’t stop jumping up and down and I told him this is our month!!!!! If I’m ovulating at day 25 of my cycle which never happens God will give me this baby this month too. I even took a puc of the ovulation test cause I just was having so much faith. Just to make it clear I was trying for more than a year to get pregnant and every month I was ovulation, I was charting and using opk's. But that was a special month when I saw that my husband's prayer had been answered about the ovulation day! So here I am ladies Pregnant!!! I got a positive at 10 dpo with a faint but very visible line but at 18 dpo the line was dark as the control!! We're so happy!! As for symptoms the only thing I’m feeling is cramps and sore boobs. That's it! God bless all of you ladies and my advise is: Never loose the faith. God has wonderful plans for you and your family!!

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

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. ****
