1 year after a loss, pregnant with our Rainbow

Like most who come back here, I’ve been stalking this site for a while! Checking my symptoms with all the others and hoping this would be the month! We suffered a second trimester loss a year ago and have been trying ever since. We’ve had two chemicals where the BFPs disappeared and AF came. But not this time! Finally, this is it! Here’s my story/symptoms I took clomid CD 5-9. Got a positive OPK (advanced) on CD 14 and CD 15. I O’ed somewhere in the night between the two. O day- intense cramping. I’ve had two IUIs (different cycles) and one of them had intense cramping. It was just like that. 1DPO intense cramps continued. I felt like it was on both sides, like I could feel my Fallopian tubes contracting. 2-3DPO nothing 4 DPO creamy CM 5 DPO and 6 DPO more cramping. More like AF coming, but I knew that was too soon. 5-9 DPO CM was wet Breast tenderness began to intensify by 7dpo At 8dpo I got a vvvfp on an OSOM SMU. I was hopeful. 9DPO a faint positive on OSOM and First Response and Internet cheapie. Tests have only gotten darker. 10 and 11 dpo. Trouble sleeping. Sick at my stomach. I’m so excited I don’t know what to do. Hoping this little One grows big in there and stays strong for 9 months!

Bfp after over a year

My husband and i tried to conceive for what felt like forever! We actually took a two cycle break and this cycle was the return of trying and WE GOT A BFP!!! im only 10 dpo right now and just,took the test tonight but it is a strong line. So on to what you came here for, symptoms of course! Before 8 dpo I didn't notice anything truly unusual. 8 dpo: really frequent urination... Like every 45 mins to an hour Nose was really dry with bloody boogers. Gross i know Wasnt getting any good sleep yet i was pretty tired 9dpo: nose thing again & urination same Felt a general but strong awareness behind my pubic bone almost like an ache at times Oh and two nights in a row (8&9 dpo) woke up from my sleep in the middle of the night with,aching boobs on the bottom and sides but only lasted,briefly,and just,those two times 10dpo: in the am when i peed i wiped and saw a thick & time sized amount of creamy cm which was odd.. I dont usually get that much of it at once Took a test at 10pm and a strong line appeared within 30 seconds Things that were a little different thise cycle were my boobs. Normally my boobs will be fuller and firmer after o but this cycle they just got fuller,and not firm at all like way more sqishy than usual. & i didnt o until CD 24 I still am in shock but i could not be more thankful and excited! GOD IS GOOD Peace & love and good luck to all!

BPF 8 DPO - 41 Years Young - Natural Pregnancy

Hi ladies, Thank you for posting your stories on this website - you have helped us all to get through this awful two-week wait!! I am very surprised to be writing this. I have a son that was born 11 years ago (at 30 years old), and we never restarted using birth control after I had him. I figured that I would have another one at some point - so I was in no rush for it to happen. Little did I know that 11 years would go by! When I was 39, I naturally got pregnant, and I was in total shock because I figured that if it had not happened yet- it wasn't going to. After I had accepted that my husband and I were going to be 60 and 65 respectively when this one is 20 - I got excited - but I miscarried at 9 weeks. I think that I took that pregnancy for granted - drinking coffee, weight lifting, stressed about work, etc. I think that I thought that it would work the same way as when I was 30. Boy was I wrong! I ended up seeing a reproductive endocrinologist about 5 months ago, and I had low ovarian reserve and was diagnosed with "unexplained fertility." My husband and I became serious about trying about 3 months ago during my first femara/ovidrel cycle. That cycle failed, and I really heated being on those drugs. My basal temp was all over the place during that month. After that, I started reading everything on the subject, and started with prenatal vitamins, vitamin E, vitex, fish oil, coq10 as well as a handful of other supplements. I also used progesterone crème and magnesium lotion. This month, I started acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and fertility smoothies. Here are my symptoms: 3 DPO - current: excess white creamy mucous, very tired (had to take a nap in the afternoon 2x this week - luckily I work from home), very quick bouts of boob and back soreness, felt strange heavy feeling in my uterus when I tried to lift something heavy 5 DPO - mild cramping/tingling for 2 hours 8 DPO - lots of tingling/heart beat between my left ovary and belly button (but lower) I am hoping that this one sticks - I know that the chance of miscarriage is high at my age (41). Good luck everyone!!

Finally a bfp after 3 miscarriages in 5 Years

Hi my name is Kay and I’m 34 Years with pcos. I promised myself I will write here once I get my bfp. 3years back Had a ruptured ectopic and lost my left tube. Got pregnant again 6 months later but had a DnC for blighted ovum. Luckily got pregnant 6 months later sadly DnC again for another blighted ovum. Made a conscious decision to lower carbs and sugar, do fertility yoga, drink red raspberry tea, ABC juice ( doc recommended) , Chinese herbs with accpunture and homeopathy, clomid, preseed and lots and lots of prayers. Was basically willing to try anything in the last 3 months we had given ourselves to “try”. In the 2ww I had pineapple core 1-5 dpo, 4 Brazil nuts, chicken essence and red date tea. 2 weeks after my birthday felt like I had a glow on my face that I’ve only seen each time I was pregnant. Took the test and it’s a bfp! Was in shock and a bit scared of another BO. Doc put me on progesterone suppositories, baby aspirin , 5 mg folic acid ( which I was already taking) high dose fish oil and hcg injections twice a week. Had gone in for a scan and just saw a beautiful baby at 6 weeks 3 days with a beating heart. Hope this gives someone else hope the same way I had hope reading all these bfp stories full on happiness and faith. Hope all get their bfp soon and baby dust to all. Ps the symptoms I have sore breast, slight nausea randomly, tmi watery cm , no appitite , bitter taste in mouth, dizzy spells and moving between fatigue and insomnia.

BFP at 14DPO after 9 cycles- First time mom

I always said that once I got my BFP I would upload my symptoms to this website since I stared at it month after month trying to see if I would get my BFP that month. This month, the only thing I did differently was not stress over BDing since my fertile week began on Christmas. I didn't use OPKs and we didn't BD everyday like we normally do, but but more followed SMEP according to when I "think" I would have gotten my first positive OPK (which would have been CD13 for me). I also think skipping a day helped. Anywhoooo, I didn't test until the day my AF was due in the afternoon on a dollar tree test and got a faint but very visible positive. The next day, the dr also got a positive urine test. I took one more test yesterday and got a very dark positive line so it is official to me. Here are my symptoms: Shortly after I conceived (idk if it was before implantation or not) but I started coming down with a horrible cold/flu that later turned into what felt like a sinus infection. I never get those Breasts started hurting very early in cycle around 3DPO, but they didn't hurt terribly until around 13DPO (it hurt to lay on them) Creamy CM-- one day it had an interesting smell, I thought I had BV but it went away UTI symptoms- literally peed myself trying to make it to the bathroom at work Heavy low AF like cramping very early in cycle, around 10DPO. It first started during sex, then it happened everyday after but I didn't have any bleeding or spotting, just CM Sore nipples around 12DPO but I sometimes get it before AF All around felt kinda run down but I chalked it up to getting over the cold Diarrhea that didnt wanna come out, like I was constipated Hot and cold all the time Felt exactly like AF was coming only there was no blood at all. On Friday 1/12 when AF was due I took the test and got a positive. The next day, I had lots and lots of creamy mixed with EWCM coming out of me and it had streaks of blood. Lasted off and on throughout Sat and Sun but didn't touch panties or liner. Overall, I just feel kinda tired and crampy every day, but I'm thankful my little bean is getting nice and snug inside of me. Baby dust to you all!

BFP after 4yrs TTC, PCOS & 3 cycles Clomid!

I'm in total shock! It's still early days but I'm celebrating each day as it is. I've had one chemical pregnancy before in 2010, and I wouldn't have known if I didn't test early. I've tested early again because I had a feeling. I'm crossing my fingers for a sticky little one! I haven't ovulated for over four years. We've been trying to conceive for four years with no luck whatsoever. I started seeing a fertility specialist at the start of the year. I've had two cycles of 50mg Clomid, and no ovulation. I'm on my third cycle of Clomid, first cycle of 100mg. I ovulated! I had a blood test two days ago. It showed a progesterone level of 26, which my doctor says is fine. I was excited about ovulating, so despite being only 8dpo yesterday.. I tested with cheapies and got a super faint line. I wasn't sure it was real cause it had no colour and was barely there. This morning I took a First Response test and got a faint pink line!?!?! Here is my info that I gathered using the Glow app: CD16 - I got my first ever Peak symbol on the Clear Blue Dual Hormone Fertlity monitor. CD17 - OVULATION DAY! Mild headache, indigestion, nausea and pelvic pain. Moderate cramps and backache. Severe constipation. CD18/1dpo - Mild backache, headache, sore boobs and pelvic pain. Moderate cramps. CD19/2dpo - Mild backache. Moderate sore boobs and cramps. CD20/3dpo - Mild insomnia. Moderate sore boobs, bloating, fatigue, and pelvic pain. Severe hot flashes, backache, appetite and cramps. CD21/4dpo - Mild insomnia. Moderate sore boobs, constipation, bloating and pelvic pain. Severe hot flashes, headache, backache and cramps. I went to hospital on this day because I was in so much backache and cramping pain that I thought I had developed OHSS! I hadn't. An ultrasound showed a corpus luteum! (The leftovers from the ovulated egg, which supplies progesterone to the embryo until the placenta takes over. So, good sign!) CD22/5dpo - Mild nausea and insomnia. Moderate feeling sick (I had lots of mouth ulcers due to lowered immune system which happens at ovulation and/or early pregnancy), indigestion, fatigue and sore boobs. Severe cramps, constipation, backache, bloating, headache, hot flashes and pelvic pain. CD23/6dpo - Mild cramps and hot flashes. Moderate headache, bloating and backache. Severe sore boobs and constipation. CD24/7dpo - Mild pelvic pain, hot flashes, backache, appetite and constipation. Moderate headache. Severe cramps. CD25/8dpo - Mild pelvic pain, insomnia, headache and constipation. Moderate cramps, appetite and hot flashes. Severe sore boobs. CD26/9dpo - Mild cramps, bloating, fatigue, headache and pelvic pain. Moderate backache. Severe sore boobs. I'm hoping for a very sticky baby and a healthy and happy nine months of pregnancy. Please God, give us this blessing. Notes: I used Preseed every time we babydanced. I took Metformin 500mg three times a day, Clomid 100mg from cycle days 2-6, CoQ10, Pre-conception Vitamins, Probiotic, double folic acid dose (800mg), vitamin C and Zinc, and 400mg Myoinositol twice a day. I kept my feet warm all the time. (Apparently keeps uterus warm) I did femoral artery massage, which is what I think helped a lot! Youtube it! I drank Pomegranate juice around ovulation and for a few days after. I tried to eat and drink mostly warm food stuffs. Never anything freezing cold. (Apparently keeps uterus warm) I inserted my menstrual cup/Moon Cup after sex with hubby, to keep sperm in. Similar to soft cups, but cheaper and reusable. I lay with my legs up the wall and a pillow under my butt.

Felt basically the same as all the BFN months!

Hello! I am so overjoyed to be posting my BFP story! I hope everyone reading this gets one soon as I know it can be very stressful! These stories gave me some hope so I hope it does the same for you :) Background: I went on BC pills at age 14 after only having maybe 5 periods and when I started BC my periods stopped. Flash forward 15 years and I am 29 marrying the love of my life and we are both super excited to be parents. I went off birth control and two months later my period returned but it was super light. I was very worried. 1st month we had a chemical pregnancy. Then nothing for month two, three and four. My periods were still very light and we were not getting a BFP despite the fact I was trying everything I could think of. Things I tried: I was taking Vitamin B, Vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil first two weeks then Flax Oil, and Prenatal vitamins. I also cut back substantially on exercise (I'm a distance runner). I drank lots of red raspberry tea and I didn't drink or eat anything that was cold. I used a hot water bottle on abdomen and was always heating my feet (I have Reynaud's disorder). I started weekly acupuncture after three months of trying. I cut out spicy food (as recommended by my accupunturest). I also used softcups (month two and three), used preseed (month three, four and five) and also started temping (month 5). My DH and I also cut out alcohol and coffee when we started ttc in January. After three month's of ttc I started to get really depressed. I made a huge mistake telling my friends and family that we were ttc. Then everyone was always asking me are you pregnant yet? Which was a dagger to my hart because I wanted it so badly and was trying so hard. Then when I would say no, they would often launch into all the stories of people they know who got pregnant right away. This made me feel so down I totally stopped seeing all my friends and family. Then my cousin told me to just tell everyone we are taking time off ttc right now, so I did and bam BFP. Symptoms: Ovulation day: No fertile CM (normal for me) 1-6dpo: A fair amount less CM then usual. 7dpo: Lots of watery CM, light cramping and soar back (normal pre-period symptoms for me). Gums bled when brushing teeth (never happens). 8 dpo: Major dip in my bbt but I have never done this before, so I thought I just did it wrong. 9-10 dpo: Soar boobs, light cramping and a bit moody (all pre-period symptoms) I told my DH that we are out this month and that we should start drinking again during week 1 and 2 of each cycle. He agreed! 11 dpo: Decided I wanted to drink this weekend so I took a FRER and OMG!!!!!! Is that a second line??? My poor DH was in the other bathroom and I was banging on the door crying saying I think it's positive!!! Come look! It was positive and the line has been getting darker everyday :) Things I did that I think helped: - I removed a lot of stress this month but saying I wasn't ttc anymore to friends and family. - I continued with accupuncure and listened to her health recommendations. -DH and I started having Kale and coconut shakes every morning. -DH and I started drinking two tbs of apple cider vinegar mixed with hot water, honey and cinnamon each night. -Consistently used Preseed. -This was the first month we tried Sperm Meets Egg Plan. - Using digital ovulation tests. Sorry this is so long! I hope it helps someone :) Lots of baby dust to everyone! Wish me luck that this little one sticks around :)

BFP After 2 MC and 21 Months TTC!

I have been a lurker on this site for quite awhile and I always found people's BFP stories very helpful! Background info: I had a chemical pregnancy in April 2016 and a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks in October 2016. My cycles range from 32 days - 35 days with ovulation usually around cycle day 21 or day 22. I track BBT and use ovulation tests. This cycle I had my husband take Ubiquinol, B6, B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Calcium. This was to improve his sperm and his sperm's DNA. We don't know the quality of his sperm, but I knew we had lost two babies and I'm only 1/2 the equation. I was taking prenatals, FertileCM, Ubiquinol, Calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and used preseed. The previous cycle I took extra folic acid, vitamin b6 and vitamin b12, but I felt like it delayed my ovulation. So I stopped taking them. TWW Symptoms: I had slight spotting (VERY SLIGHT) 5 days before ovulation (very normal for me and is due to estrogen surge) and very slight spotting one day before ovulation (first time for this). 1-5 dpo - I was working on the deck outside and had company staying with us, so I didn't have time to think about symptoms. 6 dpo - I was exhausted, threw up in my mouth and struggled with nausea. At this point I had been working outside for a full week doing hard labor, so I didn't think anything of it. Noticed my breasts were a little sore on the sides. I was preparing dinner and got really dizzy. I had to hold onto the counter to keep from falling over/passing out. Told husband I might be sick and to keep an eye on me (in case I DO pass out). 7 dpo - Nausea continues with some slight vaginal cramping. Again, working outside, so I attributed it to not drinking enough water. Breasts still slightly sore on sides (normal for me). Runny nose and no cm. I noticed my hair was more oily than usual (this was my 1st pregnancy sign with baby #1). 8 dpo - Exhausted, slight nausea, breasts now sore on sides and underneath. Watery cm, but mostly dry. Noticed a little heart burn. Painful lower back (worked outside all day, so I figured I just had poor form). 1 bout of diarrhea. 9 dpo - Tired, lower back was killing me. Very nauseated in the morning. Hungry all the time, but after eating I almost threw up. The skin on my cheeks/nose were so dry, they started peeling. Boobs were very sore. I found myself talking about baby names with my husband and how to announce when we do get pregnant again (we NEVER talk about names unless we are pregnant, so this was weird for us). Moderate amount of watery cm. I had loose stools and insane, painful gas. I was having strong stabbing pains on the upper left side of my abdomen and a few sharp pains under my belly button. My right armpit (lymph nodes) were having aching pains. I also had some vaginal cramps (I associated all of this with horrible gas and possibly being sick). That night as we were going to sleep, I had this overwhelming sense of peace come over me. My heart started racing and I couldn't help but praise God for another chance to have a baby. 10 dpo - I got a faint positive test! I had mild nausea, one more stab of pain on my left side and very slight lower back aches. I also started having terrible heartburn. My facial skin was very dry and peeling. 11 dpo - Face is still peeling, breasts are very sore, but overall I feel pretty good. What I am doing to prevent another mc: I am now taking Prenatals, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 (read a study that showed women who had diets high in B12 tended to have quieter babies because they could produce melatonin more easily), extra folic acid, Vitamin D, Calcium, Vitamin C and have been eating pineapple since ovulation. When I got my BFP I got a prescription from my doctor for progesterone suppositories and started taking 1 baby aspirin a day. I have a good feeling about this baby! Please pray we get to keep him/her! I hope this brings you hope!
