Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP by Sperm Meets Egg Plan

The Sperm Meets Egg Plan is a very specific protocol designed to help couples achieve pregnancy. Here you’ll find the stories of ladies who’ve followed the program and come out the other side with a BFP in lieu of a diploma. Not too shabby…!

Enjoy the stories. And if you should get your BFP courtesy of the Sperm Meets Egg Plan, be sure to send it our way!

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 :)

I hope this helps! Good luck to you all!!!

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!

Cycle info: 29 days cycle

BFP after years of waiting

Hi everyone,

If I must be honest, I've been obsessed with this site for years.

I am 29 DH is 30, we've been together for 8 years married one year. We waited years until we both were ready to have a child (waiting for the "right time"). We decided to start trying this year as everything seemed to line up perfectly for us personally, financially, emotionally.

This was our first month trying, we were not on birth control, we were just using my clue app for timing to avoid pregnancy. I used First Response OPKs around the time my clue app told me I would begin ovulating for about three days. Happy reading this detailed account.

O- Day was Nov 4 or 6 I had lines from the opk test on both days.

Ovulation pains since Nov. 1 but the strongest was Nov. 4th, we b'd Nov. 3rd and 4th and 6th. Very creamy the 1st-6th I also ate pineapples.

CD 17- high urine smell
CD-18 high urine smell, headache, creamy cm, cramp zinging
CD-19 high urine smell
CD-20 tons of cm (thick, sticky) napped
CD-21yellowish cm, dull backache pressure, lower abdomen pressure (AF?)
CD-22 irritation, took FRER BFN, creamy cm
CD-23 indigestion, under arm side boob pain on one side
CD-24 pimples (I never get pimples, my face is always clear) cramps creamy thick cm(so much)
CD-25 light pink spotting when I wiped, wouldn't have noticed if I didn't look at the toilet paper, thought it was my period coming (so sad) thunderous cramps so upset, sore nipples.
CD-26-28 heartburn, sore nipples, lower back ache cream cm
CD-29 dollar tree pregnancy test BFP

Good luck to all, and congrats!

And baaammm after 12days i got my bfp!! I put photo of my chart also . So here is my symthomps:

BFP 9dpo

This was our 4th cycle trying. My hubby has been working out of town Sunday through Thursday and somehow we managed to make it happen this month.

Immediately my boobs were heavy and hurting. I'm thinking as soon as the sperm met the egg. LoL. I was also having bad headaches for about 4 days straight. My whole body is sore. Basically I'm a hot mess.

I took a frer last night that had a faint +. So... I took 3 more with the same result. This morning I ran out and got a digital ept.. Couldn't be happier.

My boobs still hurt.

4th Month TTC with BFP on 14DPO using SMEP

I feel it would be rude not to add my BFP story given the many, many hours i have spent reading through other people's stories recently!

Both my husband and i are age 30, and we have gotten a BFP on our 4th cycle TTC with our first baby. The 3rd cycle (last cycle) we had an early chemical pregnancy and if i hadn't taken the test and gotten an extremely faint line on 13DPO (and an even fainter line on 14DPO.. to non-existent) i would just just thought it was AF right on time.

LET ME JUST SAY ... We did not abide by "relax/forget about it and it will happen"... That is the most annoying thing anyone can say to someone TTC. I understand stress can affect fertility and it affects some people more than others, but there's nothing wrong with knowing your body and trying any way possible to increase your chances if you can!

This successful cycle we tried SMEP (Sperm Meets Egg Plan) for the first time with ClearBlue Digital Ovulation Tests - highly recommend if you haven't tried! We feel very lucky it worked for us straight away! We used ClearBlue Digital tests last cycle with the chemical pregnancy but we didn't use SMEP in conjunction.

I had lots of EWCM in the days leading up to ovulation, mostly when i wiped after a BM (also had EWCM in previous cycles too). We used Preseed only as a topical lubricant this time, rather than inserting with the applicator (we used the applicator last cycle with the chemical pregnancy).

As far as symptoms go, the stand outs are:

6DPO - Felt very stressed about work while doing my makeup in the morning. On the drive to work i started balling my eyes out from stress. Had to turn around and work from home that day.

10DPO to NOW - Sore BBs (all over) PLUS sensitive nipples. I never get sensitive nipples during non-successful cycles. I also was VERY snappy at my husband.

13DPO - Moderate (pretty painful) cramping after orgasm.

14DPO - Very strong BFP with FMU using FRER at 1.30AM. Woke hubby up and we were both so excited we didn't sleep a wink after that. Mild period-like cramps on and off throughout the day. Very hungry and thirsty. Extremely gassy at work in the late afternoon; I had to take 2x Mylanta and go home from work due to discomfort, not to mention embarrassing gurgly noises coming from my tummy!

Others throughout TWW: Elevated temperature above the cover line from ovulation to now. Mild to moderate constipation in the TWW.

The symptoms i looked for but did NOT experience, i repeat, DID NOT EXPERIENCE:

X Metallic taste in mouth
X Bleeding gums / bleeding nose
X Diarrhea
X Implantation cramping or bleeding
X Implantation dip (BBT)
X Dizziness (usually experience dizziness in non-successful cycles)
X Darkening of nipples
X Blue veins on chest (no more than usual anyway)
X Unusually high temps (BBT)
X Morning sickness (i'm sure she's on her way if i'm lucky and this pregnancy sticks)
X Insomnia
X Fatigue

I hope you enjoyed reading this and i wish you all the best in achieving your pregnancy when the time is right xx

BFP after missed miscarriage

8 weeks after a heartbreaking D&C we got our BFP. It's such a blessing and God really answered our prayers. Like my first pregnancy I didn't have any symptoms before my BFP, I tested everyday from 7 dpo, only to get -... until 10dpo showed a faint line that was almost not there. I asked my husband not to call me crazy when I showed it to him for validation and he saw it too!!! I've tested everyday since and the line is getting darker and darker. we are over the moon excited and hope this is our take home baby. A few weird things to note this cycle : 4-5 day straight +OPK from day 14-18, then super dry right away after ovulation, had one day of creamy/sticky cm which resembled what I had a month or two into my first pregnancy. But now i'm about 5 weeks, have no real symptoms except for lower back pain. A bit worried about the lack of symptoms, but not going to worry, will pray for a healthy and happy 9 months! Good luck girls, dreams do come true ;)

BFP using soft cups, SMEP, and Mucinex after 3 months TTC!

We've only been trying for 3 months, but I have to say I was feeing pretty discouraged that we weren't instantly pregnant. This will be baby #3 for us (I'm 30 years old), and my first two babies we got pregnant the first go round, so I just assumed it would be that easy this time! After obsessing over every symptom the last two cycles, and being so disappointed with a BFNs, I tried to take it easy this time and not read to much into every little thing. But here are my symptoms, by DPO:

CD 16: O Day! Actually had gotten a positive ovulation strip on CD 14 and 15, and by CD 16 it was negative, but this is the day that FF chose as my O day. Also, CD 15 and CD 16 I had what felt like bad menstrual cramps (o pain?) but I was also gassy and constipated so cramping could have been related to that.

DPO 1: Nothing, slow rise in temperature.
DPO 2: Nothing, temp still going up.
DPO 3:Nothing, record high temp at 98.84
DPO 4: Feeling warm and flushed, but it was warm out so I wrote it off as nothing. A bit bloated. Temp slightly lower.
DPO 5: Temp dropping still. Bloated and gassy. Very emotional, cried watching TV (again, not that unusual for me).
DPO 6: Temp dropping further (still well above cover line though). Feeling grumpy and irritable that my temp as gone down three days in a row, I feel like I for sure cannot be pregnant. Very snappy and irritable mood, I figure that it is PMS. Boobs achy on and off, which is normal PMS symptom for me.
DPO 7: Temp is back up at 98.75. Feel in a much better mood. Weird stabbing pain in left nipple, which is not normal for me. Pain continues on and off throughout the day.
DPO 8: Gassy, temp is still high. I don't feel pregnant so I have coffee and feel weird and jittery (possibly because I've been abstaining from caffeine for so long).
DPO 9: Boobs achy (only a little). Gassy and a little bloated, face is breaking out a bit more than usual before AF. A few twinges and pains in my uterus. Menstrual like back cramps. Feeling very tired, take a nap in the afternoon, and still fall asleep at 9:30 at night.
DPO 10: Temp is still high (usually by now it starts to go down). Decide to take a cheap pregnancy test (Easy at Home Brand), and I am amazed that there is a very definite faint line!! Continued cramps and weird tingling in armpits and occasional stabbing pains in boobs. Feeling warm and flushed. Twinges in uterus. Can't keep eyes open after 9:00 PM.
DPO 11: Temp still up, take a Clear Blue Easy test and definite line appears! Also take another cheap test, and line is darker than yesterday's! Feeling very warm, gassy, and having twinges/pains in uterus. Very tired, napping a lot.

So that's it! Most of my pregnancy symptoms were so similar or identical to PMS, so I really wasn't holding out much hope (although at the beginning of this cycle I did have a good feeling about this being our cycle to conceive, but then after not really feeling pregnant I lost hope). So don't stress if you don't have that many symptoms, it's different every time. With my daughter I knew I was pregnant before I even tested, but not this time!

Things we did this cycle that might have helped our BFP that we didn't do last time:
DH: Took Maca Root, Zinc, and multi vitamin.

Me: Took Evening Primrose Oil to O day, then switched to Fish Oil. Also drank Red Raspberry leaf tea the whole cycle until I got a positive Pregnancy test. Also took prenantal, vit. d, vit. k, magnesium.

Followed Sperm Meets Egg Plan, using Soft Cups, Preseed, and took Mucinex during fertile period.

I have a retroverted uterus, so we DTD with me laying on my stomach and my hips propped up on a pillow. I also laid on my stomach (not my back) afterwards for at least 1 hour. I put the Soft Cups in after about an hour with a bit of preseed in it, and kept them in 8-12 hours.
