Father's Day Weekend BFP

SO excited to post my BFP story because these were such an encouragement to me while TTC! To give you a little bit of history - I went off birth control in February and the first two months off bc, I had all of the prego symptoms every month. I was cramping, nauseous, sore bb's, sore nipples, headaches, tired, etc. For two months I was miserable for my entire tww following O-day wondering why my body was in so much pain? Was it a baby? Or just my body adjusting to bc? Each month AF showed her face and I was crushed. By the 3rd month, I was feeling great! My body was back to normal and I felt NOTHING following my O-day. But again, AF came and I was devastated but kind of expecting it since I had zero symptoms. That brings me to my 4th month TTC. I had a lot of cramping since O-day. Sometimes just dull persistent pains and other times sharp pains. The pain went from just below my rib cage down to my abdomen. So basically it felt like a belly ache + AF cramps. These pains never really went away for the entire 2 weeks. Sometimes I would take tums that seemed to help a LITTLE with the belly ache, so maybe it was a bit of gastritis. At 3dpo-5dpo I came down with the flu, and I was vomiting a lot. However, I also got a bad cold at this same time and I was very congested and sneezing a lot. This cold made me think we might have caught the egg since I've read about it several times on other's BFP stories as a symptom early on. At 9dpo the belly ache and cramping persisted and I went to Target to buy tests to stock up for the next week. While at Target I saw 5 pregnant ladies! They were everywhere!! This prompted me to test - and what do you know? I was one of them too and didn't even know it! Faint line at 9 dpo!! I've attached a picture to show my progression. I'm elated and must say that it kind of sneaked up on me when I least expected it. Besides the belly ache/cramping and cold, I don't really have any other symptoms to report!! We followed the sperm meets egg plan (SMEP) - and baby danced on cd 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17 skipped a day, and danced once more for good measure. I'm pretty sure I O'ed on cd 16 because that is when I got a high reading on my FR opk. Elevated my hips on pillows for 20 mins following all of my baby dancing sessions. Good luck to you ladies and hope you get your BFP's soon!!

11 DPO First Cycle Trying

I'm 29, DH - 32, this is our first cycle TTC our first child. We BD CD 11 and 13, with O expected on CD 14. I didn't temp or use OPK, but my cycles are very predictable - 28 days, so I just calculated O day, and watched my CM. The main symptom I had since O was what i thought was a UTI - it wasn't even an urge to pee, but a constant discomfort and tension in my lower stomach. I thought I had achy BBs a couple of times, but it never lasted. Another time (4DPO) I thought I smelled something that my husband didn't... Anyway, I guess my point is that I kept telling myself that I'm just imagining things, and it's VERY unlikely to happen in the first month of TTC. Plus, we are not the most active BDers. So yesterday, 10DPO I tested, and neg. This morning (11DPO), I tested again with the internet HCG strip. Laid it down on the counter and brushed my teeth. I sort of forgot that I had it there, because I was sure it'd be neg again. So when I was done brushing, I looked back down, and what I saw startled me! There was a faint BFP! I was sure it wasn't evaporation line, because I only brushed for about 3 mins. I picked it up and examined it at all different angles, in alll kinds of lighting! LOL. Then I decided I better run out and get a digital. Came back home with a Clearblue digital test and another hcg strip kind, and within about 2 minutes "Pregnant" popped up on the screen, and a second line appeared on the strip... I woke up my husband, all in tears, and told him I needed to tell him something. Then I handed him a digital test. It took a couple of seconds for the news to register in his sleepy head, but then he said "That's good news! Why are you crying?" Turns out he thought something horrible must have happened when he first saw my face! LOL. What can I say? I was very emotional! Then I said "Happy Father's Day, I guess!". We never thought it would happen this fast, but we are both very happy! Good luck to everyone!

Finally, After 7 Months!

After 7 months of ttc, we can finally say we're pregnant! I really didn't think it was going to happen. I pretty much tried everything: no alcohol, no caffeine, B6 pills, Mucinex, Preseed, Fertility Tea, Pineapple Method, and pomegranate juice. None of that worked. This month I finally said screw it. If other people can get knocked up with an unhealthy lifestyle then I am going to continue with my caffeine and alcohol every other day. The only thing we used this month was KY from Wal-Mart and prenatals. This was also my 4th month temping, and I will say, it did help me figure out when I ovulate every month which helped me know when to BD. I didn't really have any symptoms. At least I didn't think they were symptoms. 1-5DPO- Nothing 6DPO- Diarrhea 7-8DPO- Constipated and Headache 9DPO- Twinges in my left side where I ovulated. I was pretty sure I was implanting all day. 10DPO- My temp dropped so I knew AF was coming. I spent the night drinking. 11DPO- Temp went back up so I hurried up and took a test with fmu and it came up positive! Later on that day a digi said "pregnant!" 12-14DPO- BBs started hurting, headaches (probably from the lack of caffeine), tired, constipated, weird cramps. Now all we hope for is a healthy and happy 9 months!

BFP With No Symptoms

I'm still in a bit of a daze but excited non the less and cannot believe i get to post this!!..Just wanted to say to the supportive ladies I've gotten to know in the last few months.. A little background. DH and 1 are both 29. Stopped BC in mid January and got my period 32 days later..the next two cycles were a regular 26 days but in the 3rd cycle i took EPO to increase CM and ended up with a 23 day cycle. I didn't take anything this cycle. I don't temp although i was thinking about it for next cycle so my DPO is a guestimate..just used CB digital opks and tried as best we could to follow SMEP.. When I remembered I didn't get up straight away after BDing Here are the stats and I hope this helps someone! CD7-9 - BD everyday for fun, we were on holiday. Started testing with opk on CD8 CD10 - Smiley face on opk. Travelling so no BD.

Is that a line?!!! So faint I'm not convinced CD22(11dpo) - Faint line on wondfo!... can't believe my eyes! I need a darker line to convince me so decide to wait two days CD24(13DPO) - Definitely a BFP!!! YAY!!!! :) We are soooo very excited! I thought i would feel something but have had absolutely no symptoms..Just a little bit of cramping here and there last week..

BFP Straight After Miscarriage!

I, like many women, have been stalking the bfp stories on this site and am super happy to post mine :-) I miscarried on the 13th April at nearly 6 weeks. I was gutted as this would've been our 'surprise' 5th baby. I'm 35 and DH is 40. We decided that we'd try again asap but was aware of the reduced chances of conceiving but thought we'd give it our best shot. We used OPKs and checked CM, CP and discovered that I ovulated on the 2nd of May. We did a version of SMEP (i.e. we forgot a couple of times!) but we BD every fertile day and used my menstrual cup (mooncup) with was great and mess free. 1-7dpo Nothing much apart from an increase in cm and a few aches and pains. 8dpo Abdomen pains. 9dpo Tired 10dpo Had a glass of wine that went straight to my head! Took a hpt and saw a squinter of a line but DH not sure. 11dpo BFP! on FRER and ic.

MY 11:11

First off ladies this is sosadd115 and I am so happy right now I just go my bfp and the dr confirmed it which made me feel even better. I never got my period the whole month of April and I kinda got fishy. I really didn't try to symptom spot this month but as I said in so many post that's so impossible not to do. Lemme tell you how I told DBF and I'll get into the juicy details after I took the digi which took my breath away from seeing pregnant for the first time ever in my life. I went to the store and bought baby booties. The drs office gave me a confirmation that I was preg so I backed it up with that just in case he didn't believe me. DBF was so stunned to the point he jogged away came back and gave me so many kisses I feel so in love right now you ladies don't understand.. Now to the juicy bizness: I thought my cycles were just going out of wack so I don't have the dpo by detail so bare with me: Things I did different this month: I got on top and made sure I climaxed after dbf did and I stood on my head, he came out of the restroom and laughed at me and we started bding again guess he liked the looks lol.. We tried the smep and I mean we were so tired, I mean tired... but it worked My symptoms this month: My breasts hurt sooo bad but I didn't pay it no mind because that usually means that af is on the way. Talking about smell I ate bbq and could smell the tomato sauce on the bbq sauce we laughed it off thinking it's nothing. No bleeding, no sleepiness, just like to eat I am currently 5weeks5days fx Funny thing is we bought Pre-Seed last night, well went back to target and got our money back Okay if you're still reading this, I know it might sound so cliche, but don't stop trying. I couldn't relax, all I did was stress so it will happen when it's time. I also just prayed and prayed every morning and night. I made a wish at 11:11 I know sounds crazy and I asked God to forgive me for being angry at him and to let me be a mother if he feels that I'm READY.. I'll be 6 weeks Sunday and I go to my first dr appointment Tuesday. I'm excited LADIES thanks for all the support LOVE U

4th Month TTC BFP

I'm so excited to be posting here after reading all of your stories and waiting for that BFP to show up. This month I used OPK, I found that last month I got a posotive result 3 days in a row, this month I decided not to test again after day 1 and used the SMEP method. I also laid down for 15 mins after BDing. Today I am 11dpo and BFP! I got my first BFP on 9dpo, I was totally shocked as it was late in the afternoon and I just had that feeling that I should test. I couldn't believe my eyes when that faint line showed up. I waited again till the next morning and again another faint line on FRER and lullaby conceptions. Finally today 11dpo, stronger BFP and the symptoms that I thought were in my head are increasing. The last few days my bb's are very sensitive, nausea during day which I never get, creamy CM and just tired. I don't care you can't wipe the smile off my face. Blood test on Monday then all the fun begins!! Good luck to you all and thanks for getting me through the last few months!

Glory be to God

I scoured this site during my TWW and said when I got my positive I would share my story in hopes it would help someone else. Me 30 and DH 31 are high school sweethearts and married for 3 years. I stopped using nuvring July 2012 and my cycle returned to normal 27 to 29 days. We have been trying to conceive since September 2012. I downloaded the I period app and began taking my BBT in October. When we did not conceive in November I ordered fertility blend for men for my husband. In January we began using preseed still no luck. On Jan 3 af came again and I was devastated. On this day I was listening to Klove and the encouraging story of the day came on and it was a woman who had been trying to conceive for a very long time. She talked about how she resented God for not getting pregnant and her doctors told her she would never have a baby. She repented for hating God and being jealous of others who were pregnant. The caller said she was pregnant the following month. I felt as if the Lord was speaking to me through her. Although I didn't resent the Lord I didn't want to get to that point either. In February I went to my ob and she did a day3 test. The results came back with slightly elevated dhea. I was rx'd dexamethasone to take beginning cycle day 1 through 16. Next I had a day21 that which confirmed ovulation had occurred. In February my husband got a SA and he had 2%morphology but excellent count and motility. The dr office suggested IUI but we didn't want to go that route. I downloaded the fertility friend app in February and noticed I missed ovulation the 1st 3 months that we have been trying with the I period app. In March I began taking dexamethasone with no success. In April I began taking fertile CM while still taking dexamethasone. I do not recommend fertile CM as I believe it delayed my ovulation. I usually ovulate between day 12 and 15, but when I didn't ovulate by day 14 I stopped taking fertile CM. Finally I ovulated on day 17. I didn't not get any EWCM either. April was the first month we tried the SMEP. It was exhausting but it worked!! I told my husband by having our dog wear a shirt that said I'm going to be a big sister. He was in shock. O day- nothing 1DPO - 6DPO nothing 7 - 9 DPO af cramps. This is when I started to think something was up since I do not get af cramps until 2 or 3 days before she arrives. 10 - 14DPO blood in my nose when I blew and when I brushed my teeth. Closer to 14 DPO I started getting extremely exhausted at work around 2pm which is not typical. My sense of smell heighten. POAS 12 & 13 DPO and BFN on early pregnancy test 10miu. 15 DPO day af is supposed to show. Take FRER very clear BFP!!! Took internet cheapie and a faint positive. Took a CBD and it said not pregnant. 16DPO took another CBD it said pregnant!!!!

Over the Moon BFP at DPO9!!

Me: 29 DH: 33 My husband and I have been trying on and off for our first since June 2011. Had a MC in September 2012 at 7 weeks, then took three months off starting in December 2012 to cleanse (liver & candida cleanse) and relax (I was an emotional wreck after the MC). March is our first month starting to try again. CD1: March 14 CD16: LH surge CD17: O BD on CD 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, and 18 DPO1: Mild cramps in abdomen, otherwise feeling great DPO2: Mild cramps in abdomen, otherwise feeling great DPO3: Mild cramps in abdomen and difficulty waking up in the morning, otherwise feeling great DPO4: Difficulty waking up and bloated all day, otherwise feeling great DPO5: Bloated all day, but feeling great otherwise DPO6: Extremely irritable, very small amount of pinkish blood on TP, six BM in the evening and diarrhea right before bed (TMI) DPO7: Moody, and woke up several times during the night DPO8: Today I woke up feeling extremely tired and really lightheaded. Ate breakfast and still feel really lightheaded. BFN on IC. Then submitted my "Am I Pregnant?" Story, but couldn’t wait to Monday morning to hear people’s responses (Type A anyone? LOL) DPO9: BFP on FRER! It was very, very faint. I had my husband break the thing open so I could take a picture, but he seen the line too so I was sure I wasn’t crazy:) No other symptom as now I am floating on a cloud, so happy! DPO10 (today): BFP on FRER that was much clearer. No questioning it! I hope this one sticks! What I did different: I took three months off to do a liver cleanse, candida cleanse, and six hydro colon therapy treatments. March was the first cycle we started trying again, and it looks like the cleanses made a big difference. I stopped eating all processed sugars, only get sugar from fruits. My naturopath put me on B6 multi, B12 with folic acid, and oil of oregano. Sorry that was so long. I wish everyone else good luck and I hope you all get you BFP dust to all!

29 Years Old | 8 Months of TTC | LD Venus

Here is my story ladies: O Day: Painful cervix. BDed and was having excruciating pain. 1 - 7 dpo: Nothing much except for pangs of headache. And tender breast. CM is creamy with loads of paper like cm. Kinda weird. 8 - 11 dpo: Nothing much again except for a drop of bbt on 11 dpo. Could this be it? Still a lot of creamy cm 12 - 13 dpo: BBT temp is still up. I usually spot 2 days before AF (my LP is max 14 days and min 12 days) interesting... 14 dpo: Temp is still up. Did a test a day before AF and got my BFP!!! What I did different this month: - Elken's LD Venus - Primerose Oil - GNC Women's Ultra Mega - Elken's Spirulina I only bded 3 days before O date and on O date itself. I didn't use any OPK this month as I have already established my cycle and know exactly when I'd Oed. Now I am about 4 weeks + with no symptoms at all. Moral of the story healthy when ttc, patience is much needed and do try the above that I have recommended. It will certainly help. It did for me! *Baby dust*
