17 DPO BFP! No Early Results Here!

Ok, I am only posting this to encourage the ladies who have not gotten early results on their HPTs!

Here is the breakdown:

1-9 DPO: Nothing
10 DPO: A few waves of nausea, thought maybe because I was coming down with something.
11 DPO: Felt some more nausea, felt a cold coming on (both my husband and son had been sick so I was expecting this).
12 DPO: Felt OK, went to the gym, felt a little tired since I had a sore throat and was congested from the cold I definitely had!
13 DPO: BFN! So disappointed. Started to notice some odd stuff, though. Felt very thirsty and increased need to pee (first symptoms I had with my son) Still felt run down from the cold. Thought increased thirst was from the virus and my body needing more fluids. Boobs starting to hurt and inflate. Normal PMS stuff I figure.
14 DPO: Nothing to mention except my cold got worse and not better. Put me in a bad mood all day. Felt tired. Still thirsty. Boobs still hurt.
15 DPO: Cold is worse! Think it is turning into a sinus infection. Very bad mood and uncomfortable. Still thirsty... Boobs VERY sore today.
16 DPO: Expected AF. Go to doctor, most def a sinus infection. Get home from the doctor and feel queasy and dizzy. Assuming it is from the antibiotics. Still VERY thirst!!! Having some cramps, but really light. They come and go but they don't get as strong as regular AF cramps. Boobs not sore anymore, figure I am out.
17 DPO: AF never came yesterday, BFP!!! Today I am feeling mildly queasy but not bad. Feeling gassy and bloated, and yes, still thirsty! Boobs not really sore, but they are HUGE!!!

With my son I only got a *faint* BFP on day of expected AF, and only got a strong one on 3 days late. Don't assume you will get your BFPs on 10, 11, 12 DPO as so many lucky ladies do!

Good luck, ladies!!!

2nd Cycle TTC BFP! Early 20s

Newly weds, and we were lucky enough to have got our BFP so soon! The first month felt like 4 years!
Symptoms: NONE.
Honestly, if I got picky I'd say a little more gas then usually but that's it.
And the day af was due I had lots of watery cm. But other then that I had all my normal af symptoms. Even the cramps.
We followed smep this cycle so I honestly think it works! Try it!!
Now hoping for a healthy 7 months and 3 weeks.
Good luck xx

3rd Time is a Charm!

I must say that the past three months I was stalking this page, but this month not so much to let myself to "relax" as everyone else says. I tried not to "care" as much, but I was crossing my fingers just like any other month. I went off BC in June 2012. My husband deployed so I figured go off then and get my body back to normal. And good thing, too. My cycles were irregular: 26 days, 47 days, 55 days for the first three months. Then he came home and we used OPK and charting my BBT that first month to see if I was actually ovulating. It showed a surge and my temp spiked so I felt that I was ovulating and we now needed to get the timing right. My cycle was 32 days. I felt like I was finally getting to my "normal" cycle. The following month we continued to use OPK and charting, but we added Preseed. I had a 37 day cycle. This time, the lucky third time, we used the CB OPK, charting BBT, Preseed, and I took FertilAid. This morning my temperature spiked so I decided to take a pregnancy test even though I told DH I was going to take one Tuesday. I'm 12DPO and got my first BFP with a CBD!!!! As for what symptoms I was feeling, I honestly felt nothing different than getting AF. I seriously thought she was coming and I kept checking to see yesterday because I was slightly cramping and bloated and felt like I was leaking. I felt like she was coming and kept telling DH that I think we were out this month and started planning when I might be ovulating in March. I did spot 9DPO during BD (sorry TMI) and this is usually a sign that AF is coming. The one thing looking back was that I get really bad lower back aches right before AF shows, but this month I did not have the back aches. Maybe that was my one clue. I'm crossing my fingers for a sticky bean! Baby dust to you all!

TTC #1 BFP on Valentine's Day

TTC since last April. My DP was working and living 40 miles away so we would meet up at weekends and once midweek.
We moved in together in October 2012 so have been seriously TTC with lots of BD around o time since October. 2012.
I've been taking pre con vits, Q10, Omega 3 since last April. Been ultra healthy, low caffeine and alcohol consumption, I'm very active, skate 2 times a week and cycle 40 miles a week.
We were both getting a bit low about not getting our BFP, I had just started having blood tests at the doctors to check my fertility.
A friend had suggested my DP take folic acid for his swimmers. Also he was a bit underweight last year and since Christmas has put on about 10Ibs and started doing weight training.
The only other different thing we did this month was use Pre-Seed, and we were very relaxed and happy at o time because we were on our way to Paris. We had an amazing time.
As for symptoms. There was nothing out of the ordinary really. In fact at 11 dpo I spotted and thought AF was around the corner. I had a bit of a cry on DPs shoulder and resolved to keep trying.
11 DPO pink spotting when checking CM
12 DPO brown spotting when checking CM
13 DPO onward Heavy tender BB, v mild cramp in low abdomen, bit more tired than usual, feel like I need to to BM but nothing there except wind (sorry TMI), more gassy.
16 DPO no AF, poas gave very faint BFP, me and DP could not believe it. It was also Valentines day!
Now 19DPO and that BFP line is very strong. The cramping is settling and it seems I am 5 weeks PG.
GP appointment on Thursday which will be 21 DPO.
Hoping for a happy healthy 1st pregnancy :)

Took 4 yrs TTC to Get Baby #1 Here, Now Pg With #2 1st Cycle TTC!!!!! (With SMEP)

Hi, I'm 31 my DH is 28 we already have a 12 month DS. I had 3 miscarriages prior. My first @ 16 wks, 2nd @ 9wks, 3rd @ 13wks. With my 4th pregnancy the Doctors put me on Baby aspirin, not sure if that's what helped but after 4 long years of heart ache we finally got him here February '12 :)
My Son is turning 1 so we decided to think about TTC again, with our previous history we expected it to take a very long time. Whilst I was Pregnant with DS I remember reading about the SMEP 'Sperm Meets Egg Plan' on here, so I decided to check it out again and googled how effective the plan was and so many forums came up with such positive results so I thought ok lets give it ago.

What we did:
I bought 50 OPK internet cheapies. Started testing CD 10.
CD 10 - BD'd
CD 12 - BD'd
CD 14 - BD'd
CD 16 - BD'd (faint line on OPK)
CD 17 - BD'd (+ OPK)
CD 18- BD'd (- OPK)
I know you are then meant to then miss a day and do one last BD for good luck, but we were pooped by this stage LOL~!!! so missed that one.

1 - 6 DPO no symptoms
7 - 8 DPO Cramps and very Tired
9 - DPO Very Tired
10 - DPO Tingly BB's (Did morning test BFN)
11 - DPO Tested again with internet cheapies "Ones step 10 miu" (I'm a POAS addict bought quite a few)got a very faint line, went and bought Clear blue digital, shows - Pregnant 1-2 wks!!!!!!

I am going to tell all my friends about the SMEP plan, I can't believe it worked for us first time!! Fingers crossed my little bean sticks!! Baby dust to everyone xx

We Did it!

After 7 months its finally happening! I'm so happy & feel so blessed! I hope this one is my sticky bean!
God bless & tons of baby dust to everyone! (:

Got a BFP!! 13dpo --- SMEP

I am so excited to share the news with the TWW world (especially since DH and I aren't telling anyone else) !!!!

I have been TTC 2 months, 30 years old, used an OPK and read the SMEP. My cycle is 26 days with a 12 day LP.

Cycle day 9--BD
cycle day 11--BD
Cycle day 13--BD
CD 14 O day
1-7 DPO nothing /normal post O cramps

9DPO- VERY SORE throat, drank tons of water, ate halls, drank tons of decaf tea. Noticed a shooting pain through my bb in a meeting, shocking. POAS BFN
10DPO- sore throat easing up, nipples feel burning/sore, and hard. Headache.
11DPO- heavy period cramps? Very "wet" down there, strange. Stomach seems to hurt
and slept aalll day.
12DPO- woke up starving,Nipples sore, craving pomegranate-- went to store and bought then devoured 8oz of arils, AF is due today according to my regular cycle. Since Im feeling these AF cramps, figure I should definitely count myself out.

was out, then DH cuts his fingernails near me, I gagged ... Ran to bathroom to POAS ... CB digital, BFP! Shocked! Went to the store and bought 2 more tests, FRER digital and
CVS early detection... Both BFP. faint on the CVS test.

14DPO--Currently and since 8DPO , I have had a dry "tickle" in my throat, and a very stuffy nose. No other cold symptoms. I am having shooting pains in my pelvic area every couple of hours, and shooting pains in my bbs. Doctors appointment scheduled for 17DPO for a blood test.

Praying for a lasting bean and wishing all of you reading this tons of baby dust :)

2 Years TTC - BFP 14DPO After 5 BFN's!

DH and I have been TTC for 2 years. I'm 30, DH is 34. I absolutely did not think I was pregnant this month. I have had almost no symptoms except for some light infrequent nausea and fatigue. I had no implantation dip in my BBT and no implantation bleeding. If it wasn't for the positive HPT's and blood tests, I wouldn't have believed it. Please don't give up!

DH and I have been seeing a fertility specialist since February 2011. Except for a thin uterine lining which was dealt with pretty quickly through meds, DH and I were perfectly healthy and ovulated every month on day 14-15. Why oh why could we not conceive then?! I had one chemical pregnancy, which was so brief I'm beginning to think it was a mistake on my part, but other than that no BFP's. My HSG test showed some possibly blocked tubes, but for some reason my idiotic fertility doctors missed that in my reports for almost 10 months. I was supposed to schedule a laparoscopy this month. I was on Clomid, Letrozole and occasional HCG injections and had 2 IUI's. Nothing- although I do think the medication helped stabilize my cycles. The doctor doubled my dosage of letrozole and I began to ovulate way too early (on day 10 and then later on day 6 the following cycle). I said enough.

I finally took a break from the meds and the IUI's and concentrated on my Acupuncture and herbal medicines. I still went for cycle monitoring just so I could know for certainty what my body was doing. I started to ovulate later and I credit the herbs, vitamins, Pre-Seed, 50 shades of Grey (snicker) and most importantly the power of prayer, for my pregnancy. I asked God to let his will be for me to be pregnant and for his will to be done to me.

We BD on days 10, 12, 14, 16, 17 and I elevated my hips after each time for 15-30 minutes. I really tried to (ahem) enjoy it too. I ovulated on Day 15 (we suspect). I tried to keep to the SMEP, but it was really tough. This was our first full cycle on Pre-Seed as well. BUY IT!!!

Day 0: insomnia, night sweat- BBT 36.2

Day 1 DPO: insomnia - BBT 36.5

Day 2: no symptoms - BBT 36.2 (I think this was low from the insomnia);

Day 3: feeling tired and unwell. Flu is going around so I assumed it was that. Bit of a headache. BBT- 36.6

Days 4-9: still feeling unwell. I have a rash on my face (ew) and I can't think straight. So tired and sick! BBT - 36.8 for all days and BFN on days 8 and 9 using a 10 HCG internet HPT;

Days 10-11: still unwell. Feeling some pressure in my abdomen on my left side (I ovulated on my right side). Sleeping is uncomfortable. Tired. BBT- 36.9. BFN with sensitive internet cheapie on both days again.

Day 12-13: still sick! Nausea is on/off, but I get this during my period so I'm thinking that's what it is. BBT- 36.8 and BFN on Day 12. I think I'm out with a possible fever. I start taking medication (feeling guilty now) and cut back on my herbs to conserve them. I drank a medium coffee on both days (a lot of caffeine for me), eat sushi and pretty much just lived my life.

Day 14: Still feel foggy. BBT- 36.8. Faint BFP on internet cheapie. What the what?! I don't tell DH because I think it's a mistake, I'll test again tonight. Another BFP in the evening and then I break out the big guns and use my last decent early pregnancy test (life brand I think). Clear BFP in 5 seconds.

Day 15: stomach keeps churning. I keep gagging and feeling "crampish" in my stomach. BBT - 36.8 and another positive HPT. See my doctor- Positive Blood test- 164. :-D

I hate it when people say to relax and just let it happen. I think I had to work at this by taking charge of my fertility, making peace with God, improving my overall health through Acupuncture and herbs and by ensuring we BD'd enough (which isn't easy when you've been trying for so long). The pregnancy was a surprise, but everything up to it was very deliberate and calculated. At the end of the day I hope that my wait means that I will just have a healthier baby. I'm sure that's what it will mean for you.

Hang in there and don't give up. You never know which month will be yours. I hope this bean sticks and I'm sending you my baby dust.

BFP for Baby #2!

Hi ladies, I finally got my BFP yesterday night after trying 3 months. Here's a little background info: I'm 26, married 7 years, and we have a 4-year-old (we were not ttc with her). In March 2012, I had an laparoscopy to remove a 6cm cyst on my ovary, which turned out to be an endometrioma (cyst caused by endometriosis)...but I never had any pain from the endometriosis, and didn't have issues following the procedure. We decided TTC after we both finished up our bachelor's degrees, so I had my Paragard IUD removed in September 2012. I have longer cycles (30-31 days) and used the WomanLog App to track periods and estimate ovulation TELLS you your most fertile days, and I highly recommend it.

Oddly enough, during the past few months I was a POAS-fiend, but this month I waited until the day it was due (it will save your sanity), and it showed up right away. I am STILL in shock! We didn't chart, use Pre-Seed, OPK's, or anything else...just plenty of BD-ing and keeping track with the WomanLog App. ;) Here are my "symptoms" until the BFP:

Days 1-6 DPO: Nothing
Day 7: Twinge in my uterus (implantation?)
Days 8-9: Unusually sleepy (9 hours a night and still exhausted)
Days 10-14: Sore, tingly boobs (the same sensation as milk dropping, although I know that's impossible), still very tired
Day 14: BFP at night! First one was faint (but definitely there), 2nd one an hour later was darker. Yay!
Day 15: VERY clear BFP with FMU! (I used First Response tests, a pack of 3)

I am still very tired, and my boobs are still very sore...but I don't "feel" pregnant. I called the doctor and my due date is September 15th, 2013, and I have an ultrasound scheduled on January 31st to confirm. It's still unreal...hoping it sticks! I sincerely wish all of you the best of luck, the two week wait is unbearable! Hang in there!

BFP After 12 Months TTC

We have been TTC for 12 months. We have been using clear blue digital OPK's for the last 6 months. For the last two months we have done SMEP. I'm not sure if that was the ticket or if it was just our time. We had a fertility specialist appointment booked in one month. We are ecstatic!!!

DPO 1-8- Normal
DPO 9- Heavy feeling of my right breast - all of a sudden my bra just doesn't feel like it fits quite right. Breakfast sounds horrible - I skip it
DPO 10- Breakfast sounds horrible again - crave smoothie instead of breakfast.
DPO 11- Breakfast sounds horrible. BFN. I cry and cry.
DPO 12- BFP! Very light line. Not pregnant on Digital.
DPO 13- BFP (again very light line) and pregnant on Digital. Our one year anniversary! Best present ever!

I always feel "burpy" (nauseous and heart burn) at about DPO 5-AF. Like any other month I had this.
I always have a creamy tan discharge (very small amount) - again like any other month I had this.

My biggest give away is that I didn't spot at all. I usually start spotting 4-5 days before AF. No spotting for me!
