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!

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!

Clomid BFP 10dpo!! God is Good.

It has been a long time waiting to write this story. It's a crazy one, but bear with me and I'll get to the good stuff :)
DH is 36 I'm 32. We've been together for 9 years and married for 5. We've always NTNP. After getting married, we decided to begin "trying". After a year of "trying" I went to my OB/GYN and asked him for help. My cycles are very regular, so we had DH SA (great) and then there was me. HSG test = all clear. On to Clomid. Now, around this time, someone prayed over me and told me I'd have not one but TWO children. I dreamed of being very early in my pregnancy, almost to the point that noone believed me. A doctor was hooking me up to machines and then I woke up. First round of Clomid=BFP. Around 7.5 weeks, I started spotting. I went to get an ultrasound at 8 weeks, no heartbeat. It was my dream. I was heartbroken. I was upset and angry with God for taking this away. I needed some time to recooperate, so I took a long year off and did some soul searching. I prayed more than I've ever prayed and seeked God with my whole heart. During that year, my sister who is very prophetic, told me I would be pregnant at the age of 32. That was two years away!! I continued to have faith anyway. In October of 2014, I had another dream. I dreamed that I was early pregnant again, and that a blonde lady told me " I know how to fix this." Fast forward to 33 weeks pregnant and I woke up. I knew it was time for us to try again. So, I took my last prescription of Clomid in December. NOTHING. In May, I went back to my OB/GYN and he started me back on Clomid 50 mg for three cycles. NOTHING. I didn't understand. Why was this not working? I prayed for healing.
In September at my three month checkup, my OB/GYN decided not to move me up to 100 mg (for the fear of multiples because I technically ovulate on my own) and had me do three more cycles of 50 mg. And then he would move me up to 100mg if that didn't work. I was furious and so upset!!
That night, I prayed and I cried out to God, "When?? When will this happen Father, I can't wait anymore!" He replied, "February".
After lots of prayer, I decided to call a Fertility Clinic and seek more help. On the day of my first appointment, my insurance had issues and I had to cancel. So, I decided to continue the Clomid.
Now, I have some co-workers that were seeing this Homeopathic/Spiritual Healing Doctor. I was curious. After lots of prayer, I felt I had to go. Here's where my story REALLY gets interesting. As I sat down with Barry, he asked me what was on my mind. I replied "well, infertility". He asked me how old DH and I were, our names, and if I'd ever been pregnant and what had happened. I told him of my loss at 8 weeks. He stared off for what seemed like an eternity before he finally said "Ok, your husband has stomach parasites. We can fix that easily and really clean up his sperm." Then to me he says "Now, I'm going to tell you something that is very scary, but I don't want you to be scared because we can fix this, ok?" I said "Ok....?" He says "You have two bloodclots that are very close to your heart, probably had them for 10 plus years, like 17 or 18 years old. Did you have dental work or braces at that age?" My heart sunk...."Yes" I replied. "I had a root canal at 17". He says "That's when they formed. They're causing your body to work too hard, thus preventing pregnancy from sticking. You're also highly anemic." I was so stunned at this point. Not only had DH NOT even been there at all, but he had told me that something was wrong with his stomach? DH had a colonoscopy two years ago and they couldn't find anything wrong!! Anemia? I give blood and my iron is always borderline. The Red Cross also had just recently called to ask if I would donate platelets because my count was so HIGH! I was just blown away. He then says " Now get this done, I see twins". I'm like "Excuse Me??????"
So, I had two months of vitamins/herbs and iron (blackstrap molasses ewww) to get started on. After two weeks, I felt like a new person! I had energy, I could breathe better!
It gets better.......
My OB/GYN is a guy, and while I'm sitting at Barry's store, I get a text that said he would be on extended medical leave until mid January!
So, I wait until December (knowing that I'm supposed to get bumped up to 100 mg Clomid in January) and I ask what I'm supposed to do. The nurse calls me back and says "We're sticking you with Dr. so and so and they want you monitored, so day 21 progesterone test, day 28 ultrasound and then we will bump you to 100 mg."
No lie, I hung up the phone, googled this new Dr. and my jaw hit the floor. SHE was BLONDE. What are the odds? My dream is coming to pass!!!!!

BFP @ 13dpo w/lupus, endometrosis, and unexplained 2ndary infertility-cycle 28

Hello Everyone. I Have been reading these posts since 2005 and they have helped me get through so many dark days. This story may be long. It was 2 years in the making.

In Nov 2014 I married my high school sweetheart. We have 5 children together. I stopped using the rhythm method immediately afterwards and thought if God wants me to have another baby, I will fall preg on my own. In July of 2015 I had a 5 week miscarriage. It broke my heart. I began to want another baby that summer and began ttcing. Fast forward to Jan 2016. I got another bfp that turned out to be a chemical because AF showed right at 13dpo.

Cd1 was Jan 9th. After 4 cycles of unprescribed clomid (oops) I began trying something more natural to conceive. I took black cohosh, evening primrose oil, vitex 500mg, prenatals, b6, and baby aspirin. The vitex made me O early. I usually O after cd 16. This month I O'd on cd11! After O I stopped taking evening primrose oil and black cohosh. I started noticing weird symptoms right away.

Jan 9-cd 1 AF
Jan 19-cd 10 Pos OPK-cp high wet and open-cm watery no ewcm-used preseed BD
Jan 20-cd 11 serious O cramps from the left side, cp still high soft open BD
jan 21-cd 12-1dpo noticed continued o pain
jan 22-cd 13-2dpo same as yest
Jan 23-cd 14-3dpo same
jan 24-cd 15-4dpo same
jan 25-cd 16-5dpo breast hurting, hi cp, thicker cm and more than usual
jan 26-cd 17-6dpo same
jan 27-cd 18-7dpo noticed darker veins on breasts and white glue like cm
jan 28-cd 19-8dpo bfn had a huge fight with DH, very emotional. Dont think this is my month
jan 29-cd 20-9dpo no test today, vivid dreams, very wet during bd?, slept 12 hours, emotional, bloated more clumpy cm
jan 30-cd 21-10dpo bfn same as yesterday but me and dh noticed a weird smell to my cm. Like I smell the hormones in it.
Jan 31-cd 22-11dpo bfn feeling very sad about prev losses. Gave up hope. Had a spiritual experience. After dreaming I was preg and died from the crossfire in a drive by shooting, I woke up and went to check on my children. While checking to make sure the front door was locked, I felt a hand grab mines. A long skinny adult hand that was cool to the touch. I ran to turn on the light and nobody was in the room with me. I was the only person awake in my home...
Feb 1-cd 23-12dpo-bfn (possibly a squinter) on frer. began to get AF cramps, temp dropped, backache, headache,cried myself to sleep.
Feb 2-cd 24-13dpo-woke to tons of drool on my pillow(did when I was preg). Im bloated, tired, crampy, back aching, and tearful. My breast are swollen and so is my belly. I can barely button my jeans. I was convinced that AF will be here today. After scouring the internet for bfp stories after 12dpo, I got the courage to take the last frer in the box. BFP!!!!!! Glory to my Heavenly Father who answered my prayers! I am due 10/12/2016 and I'm praying for a full term pregnancy and healthy baby! Baby #6! Bring it on!
