Vasectomy not reversed but now prenant with HCG 1,200 at 2ww!!

33 years ago I had a vasectomy after my 3rd child. Divorced & met my new love 15 years ago who is now 38. I'm now 63 years so it was time to make babies & of the two options it was either reversal or go for IVF. Elected for IVF. Didn't think it was possible but 6 months ago and after 20 minutes in an operating theatre a needle extracted millions of my swimmers. 100% painless, no after effects, bloody amazing. At same time the wife 'went under' & they retrieved 12 eggs. Our 1st try with a fresh 5day old blastocyst grown in the lab made it to 6 weeks with some medication assistance. The HCG at 2 weeks was 140, more good news at 6 weeks HCG was 1,500, BUT we were shattered as it just disappeared at ultra sound at 8 weeks. Our 2nd FET (frozen embryo transfer) ended up a zero result at 2ww. BUT 1 hour ago got the news that our 3rd FET after a 2ww was bloody positive & bloody fantastic. The reason for this post is that it is 1,200 HCG! This was 1 embryo, WTF (that's not an IVF acronym) no drugs, no tablets, no chemicals so does anyone know (other than a negative reason) is this normal? The missus has twins in her second line of cousins on both sides of family tree.

BFP 7 DPO after 3 chem and 1 miscarriage

Woke up feeling warm and with a cold sore ( first time)for the first time, tested and got a positive! Clear lines on first response, no squinting. bfp on cb digital. beta hcg that day 23, progrsterone 13.8! Repeating blood test today along with tsh test to see if they need to up my dose.

What we did differently: i took a break/ rested. We had multiple iui, clomid and femara cycles before but nothing. Taking a break really helped plus preseed. Put my butt up in the air for an hour to keep my cervix soaked with spermies. Used smep.

Pregnant after 2 chemical pregnancies, 12 months trying

After 12 long months and two very early miscarriages (both in week 5), I am now pregnant with what feels like a strong pregnancy and am 6 weeks along. Still keep testing every day to reassure myself the lines are getting darker and not fainter like in my second pregnancy. Got a positive result on 10 DPO and the last one is from 21 DPO.

Things I did different:

Supplements / Meds: have been taking the following for a a few months, was a bit more regular this month
- Cod liver oil
- Folate 800 mg (not folic acid)
- Raspberry leaf tea - 3 - 4 times a day
- Fiber drinks
- Guafenesin after cycle day 10, 1 a day for a week
- Baking soda finger when opk started getting darker, and once more when I thought I was ovulating
- Made sure husband took his multi and drank oj

Other things we made sure to do were to avoid oral sex, have heard it may kill sperm. I also put my lunette cup in after sex and left it in for a few hours. This time I lay on my stomach with my butt up after learning I have a retroverted uterus.

After getting a positive on 10 dpo I was cautiously optimistic because of my past miscarries, and was very worried when I saw some spots of blood. It was a weekend so couldn't get in and get my progesterone or hcg levels checked out so I just used a progesterone suppository from my last time. Was able to get my blood work done on the monday and again on wednesday and saw the levels rising appropriately and a healthy progesterone. Still taking the supplements since it's not advisable to stop all of a sudden, maybe didn't need them but wanted to be safe.

Didn't have too much symptoms, was actually pretty sure I was out this month. Just felt tired and boobs were sore.

Is this real?! 8 months and finally a BFP!

We have been trying for 8 months now and this Sunday we finally got our BFP! We both just stopped worrying and knew that if it was going to happen it was going to happen no matter what we did. I ended up ovulating 5-7 days before I normally do. My husband and I are both teachers and lucky for us I ovulated during our spring break! We had plenty of free time to BD! I have only known that I am pregnant for about 2 days. I don't really have any symptoms yet. My chest is a little sore and more cm than usual, but I am still feeling great. I am about 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant right now. I go to the doctor tomorrow to confirm everything. I am still in shock and we are so excited about this pregnancy! I used First Response and the line was their immediately. It showed up even before the control line had a chance to show up. I took two just in case :) I am so ready for this adventure! For everyone out their trying just keep your heads up and know that your time will come!

I'm so excited and still in shock I am able to share my story with all of you!! I've been on this website for the last 7months while TTC. DH and I are both 25 and decided we are ready to become parents. We have been married two years!

TTC is like a job, last month I actually started to lose hope but I just started praying harder and this month God blessed me with a BFP. MY DH even had an appt to get her sperm analysis so we could make sure that wasn't a problem!

Here are symptoms:

1-5DPO: 1 DPO had very thick, sticky discharge (never experienced before so I just knew that had to be a sign) slight cramping, 2-3 DPO had terrible diarrhea (not sure if symptom or if I was sick/food poisoning), very tired, boobs were not sore yet
6-7DPO: little more cramping, boobs slightly sore only when pushed on them
8DPO: took test in am on internet cheapie. Faint line appeared, couldn't believe my eyes so I posted pic in "am I pregnant" blog and got a huge response everyone thought I was pregnant. Sore boob, slight cramping and actually had light brown discharge (prayed it was implantation bleeding)
9DPO: took another test faint line on Internet cheapie, BFN on DG TEST. Light brown discharge when wiped or check cervix position. Cervix high medium softness and closed
10DPO: faint positive on both Internet cheapie and DG TEST. DH still would not believe I was pregnant! The brown discharge is gone. Slight cramping. Hungry. Exhausted
11DPO: BFP!!!
12DPO: BFP on clear blue digital! DH believed it when I showed him test that said "pregnant" lol.

Things we did different. Took a break from Preseed and soft cups. Used egg meets sperm plan, DIGITAL OPKS, BBT temp( which showed a slow rise after ovulation)

Hope this helps all trying to conceive! Wishing all of you the best of luck and baby dust! Hoping to see many more BFP stories!

Praying for happy healthy 9 months :)

Preseed, Smep BFP at 9DO

So, I got my bfp and like many ladies on here, I wanted to share my info for anyone who needs some light reading material while we obsess over that 2nd line!
I am 37, my husband is 38 and we have a wonderful 18 month old. I went off bc in October, but we didn't "try" until this month. We followed the SMEP, but not to the letter b/c I have a 30 day cycle and it was getting harder to comply! We used preseed each time and I elevated slightly after each time we bd to stack the deck. Symptom wise, I had very little CM except for my fertile period. I used opks, but always have a 2nd line with those so it makes it a little harder to interpret. We bd'd on cd9, cd10, cd12, cd14, cd16, cd17, & cd18 and I est that I likely O'd on cd18. My symptoms and tests are as follows:

1dpo nothing
2dpo thick white cm but not abundant
3 dpo extreme gas
4 -5 dpo nothing to speak of, no cm
6 dpo twinges in abdomen but not one side or the other, extremely exhausted, purple veins on bbs, chest, and onto the front of my shoulders, twinges in abdomen, no cm
7 dpo gas, emotional - felt like crying, very very tired, twinges in abdomen, no cm
8 dpo bbs felt heavy and felt like outgrowing bra, felt like i might cry for something silly, decreased appetite, a little bloated, heartburn, yellow cm but very little
9 dpo bbs heavy, heartburn, emotional again w/brief but instant tears for no apparent reason. took a dollar tree hpt and bfp with pm urine. used the same urine for an easy@home test from amazon - bfn. immediately nauseous and gagging over and over again.
10 dpo woke throughout the night with nausea and tested with fmu (extremely concentrated) with frer got a faint bfp, tested again with easy@home and a darker positive well within time frame.

Still keep pulling out the tests to look at them, not sure what to do next! Good luck to all:)

BFP at 11 dpo

Hi Everyone! I live for this site during the TWW so I had to post. We have been TTC #2 since November 2014. I felt so much less pressure this time around than the first time we TTC (DS is 17 months old), and I was prepared for it to take much longer as I'm 38 now. I'm still in a bit of disbelief, but it seems we have been blessed with another baby! I'm so grateful and just finished praying for a healthy pregnancy, and for all the mamas who are trying to get their BFPs. It will happen for you!!!

This month, we used the SMEP, Pre-seed (this was our first month using it this go-round--it worked for us last time too!), and I got acupuncture right at ovulation time. I can't recommend Pre-seed highly enough. That stuff is MAGIC! Here's the DPO breakdown:

CD 8: BD (per SMEP)
CD 10 BD
CD 11: +OPK BD
CD12: O day I think! BD
CD 13 BD
CD 14 BD
3-7 dpo: "Typical" 2ww symptoms: gassy, bloated, irritable, impatient ;) NO unusual CM or anything else of note.
8 dpo: Ungodly exhausted in the evening. Having a toddler is exhausting, so I didn't find this so out of the ordinary...but it was definitely tired on a new level, like going to sleep right after putting my son to bed at 7.
9 dpo: awakened in the night by SHARP stabbing pains right in the middle of my uterus. Actually took my breath away. Hmmm...I've experienced cramping in the 2ww before and not been pregnant, but that was weird.
10 dpo: Began feeling nauseous, sensitive to smells, still very very tired. I also started peeing like crazy. After the 3rd time I woke up in the night to pee (3 a.m. on 11 dpo), I decided to test, because I wasn't sleeping anyway. I was amazed to see a line on the FRER! I woke my poor husband up to show it to him. And I've been awake since then, praying and too excited to go back to sleep. :) I drank some more water and took a CBdigi--Pregnant 1-2 weeks! I give thanks for this blessing.

Best of luck and baby dust to all of you mamas trying. If you haven't tried Pre-seed, it can really do the trick! :)

What a journey... A BFP that I thought I'd never get.

I have wanted to be pregnant for quite some time and for the past year and a half the two week wait has consumed my life - and always receiving a BFN at the end (mind you, I never timed the baby dancing ... it's just that my timing was always off until recently). However, during the two week wait I have always thought I had symptoms - cramps, sore breasts, constipation, nausea, strong sense of smell, etc... but each time, my period came. Sometimes early and sometimes late. This time, I decided to use the ovulation predictor kits to time it better. But the bd (baby dancing) happens when it happens. I didn't want to have sex on demand and put stress on our relationship. So on the Monday, cycle day 11, we randomly found ourselves dancing. I knew it was too early, but it was so amazing. Anyway too much information. On day 13 when I returned home from our holiday, I started testing with the OPK, as I was scheduled to ovulate on Friday.... the OPK never gave me a smiley face... I took two everyday for six days. I finally gave up. So begins the two week wait and the phantom symptoms... But this time, there were no phantom symptoms. During my two week wait, I noticed a little light pink spotting, which I contributed to something else. It literally was 2-3 streaks on tissue, so I didn't think it was implantation bleeding. Then I noticed my breasts hurt, but not to the touch. It felt like they were throbbing inside - like blood rushing through them. It started with the left and then went to the right. Then the left nipple started to itch! Non-stop and then the right. This was something I had never experienced and/or read as a general symptom. I then started to feel a bit constipated. Oh and one important thing, I had a cut that normally would heal within 2 days, but it didn't. It was not healing and I was freaking out. This was literally a few days after I baby danced. My immune system was shut down! Anyway, I did notice that something was strange there. My dear friend said, getting pregnant at your age is very hard, so you are probably not, so to ease your mind going into the New Year so you can drink like it's 1999, just do a test and get it out the way. So today, I took the umpteenth pregnancy test... waiting for the all so common Not Pregnant.... and for the first time in my life, at the age of 39, I got a BFP. I know it's early, but I can only tell you that it's the most incredible moment when you realize that life changing event. I can't wait to tell my love... It's also his first at 48. This forum has been so great over the past year during my two week wait and I am so happy to say all the baby dust floating around in here, has been magical. Here's to starting a family :) And to recognizing that new feelings could be the very sign that you are pregnant. So to be clear, here were my symptoms:

Weak immune system - probably to make sure my body did not reject the pregnancy.
Itchy breasts - started with the left and then the right.
Throbbing breasts - throbbing and painful from the inside, but not hurtful to the touch.
Slight spotting - literally 2-3 light pink streaks, if that.

:) - Baby dust to all! Wish me luck over the next 10 weeks.

Strong BFP at 9dpo! First pregnancy!

I still can't believe it! My very first BFP! At 9 dpo a fairly dark line and confirmed on a digital !
DH is 28 I am 23- been trying for 4 months
I have been stalking this site the whole time symptom spotting everything !!
I was so convinced I was pregnant the past 2 cycles because of symptoms yet this month I didn't have a lot different just a couple things. If I wasn't trying I probably wouldn't have noticed them

Things I did different this cycle
I went to an acupuncturist
I started taking vitex
I temped this month

Also! I have never been short of EWCM always have plenty this month I was very surprised to not have nearly as much as I usually do (so don’t worry if you don’t have heaps you can still get your BFP!)

1dpo- Watery cm- Af cramps, runny nose
2dpo- Slight cramps, creamy/sticky cm
3dpo- lotiony/creamy cm, really tired in pm, tired in pm
4dpo- woke up early, wide awake at 415am, indigestion while awake early, lotiony/creamy cm, tired in pm, stinging pain in belly button
5dpo- slight cramps feels like gas cramps but didn't need to go, creamy/sticky cm, gas bubbles
6dpo- sore bbs if I push on them- got worse that night still not bad tho, lotiony/milky cm, so thirsty
7dpo- creamy/sticky cm, so thirsty, bit of ewcm in pm, slight Af cramps in pm
8dpo- creamy/sticky cm, white stretchy cm in pm, sore boobs if you push on them, really hungry, really thirsty, dry mouth no matter how much I drink
9dpo- bfn evap line AM on IC :(, bbs aren't as sore today, creamy/sticky cm, ewcm also.. pain in lower left belly aching pain, thirsty ... took test in arvo to make sure it was an evap line in the morning NOPE it was a BFP!!!! Morning wasn't evap OMG! Confirmed on digital and FR

Symptoms that were different this cycle:
I usually have creamy cm for 2 days post O then it turns watery/lotiony it didn’t do that this cycle it stayed creamy mostly.
Also my bbs usually kill a couple days after O but didn’t start till about 6 dpo which is strange and it was only slight.
Also the thirst hasn’t happened before

I am so excited!! I can't believe it!
I hope everyone gets their bfp's soon!

OH MY GOSH! MY BFP finally came :) 39!!

I'll try and keep this as short and sweet as I can by leaving my whole life story out!
December was a crazy hectic month and the month I had decided that "that was it", I couldn't keep doing this anymore...I was done with the heartache month after month. Over my five day "fertile window" we did the baby dance ONCE which was day 16 of my cycle and I'm being serious. Between traveling, visiting family and friends, preparing meals etc, I didn't feel like sex and just really wasn't interested in it. So because of this, because I WAS NOT expecting a BFP, I was able to look at any symptoms objectively as opposed to the detective work and freaks out I'd usually have over every little thing my body did! Here is my breakdown :)

9 DPO - My dreams were incredibly real, a few pimples appeared, nipples were sensitive (enough to be noticeable). These are all symptoms I get before AF

10 DPO - dreams very real with a brief appearance by a baby, nipples sensitive again and skin is getting worse...lucky me. Today I was extremely wet, like I was peeing myself without knowing. I had dark undies on and noticed a dark stain....I wasn't able to determine if it was implantation or not so a tip to you ladies....wear a pad or light undie around this time!!

11 DPO - just very real dreams. Feel extremely wet in my undies but cervix is low, firm and cm is dry(ish) but a bit watery/somewhat creamy (minimal though). No nipple sensitivity at all... Completely gone and starting to get that lower back ache like AF is well on her way. I am very cold though and can't seem to warm up. I have a lot of energy!

12 DPO - Low, firm cervix. Cm is minimal but watery/somewhat creamy (AF is definitely coming but of course it is because timing was off and and only bd'd once). Nose is definitely not liking strong fact, everything is a strong smell. More pimples arriving, how nice and while I was in the bath trying to warm up, I noticed dark veins around my pelvis area and legs. No nipple sensitivity at all.

13 DPO - Low, firm cervix. Minimal amount of cm. tired lower back (just feels like pressure). Definite metallic taste in my mouth, tasted like I was licking the merry-go-round anytime I touched my mouth to something! And here is an interesting one and maybe TMI but I usually start gagging when brushing my teeth and other stuff around 4-5 days before my period (that is another way I know I'm getting AF because of my gag reflexes), anywho, this time around had nothing, no gagging at all. No feeling in my boobs at's like they've disappeared.

14 DPO - wake up with those same deep, low cramps and sure AF is right on time, but then I notice they aren't the same kind of cramps, less warm and burning (ish) and more thingy, sharp and dull achy at the same time. Low, firm cervix, very minimal cm and nose is sensitive again. is something. I never understood how women could say that their boobs looked bigger or felt heavier and all, but now I do. Holy Toledo! I felt like I'd grown a cup size over night (but actually didn''s weird), they felt heavy and full and were very sensitive!!!! Couldn't believe it! Decided I'd take a test for funsies and the pregnant line was showing up just fast as the pee was racing across the screen!! Huh!? Wha!? No, that's not right. Go drink coffee, water....anything I could get my hands on so that I would have to pee again....well, would you look at that, another BFP!!!

15 DPO - low, firm cervix. Very dry, no cm present. Extremely tired and boobs feel sore and heavy. BFP again....probably will be doing that for a while ;)

16 DPO - low, firm cervix. Dry cm. Very tired but at the same time, I can't sleep. Boobs feel heavy and sore. Dull ache in lower back

17 DPO - low firm cervix and dry cm. very tired. Boobs feel better when not wearing a bra but are sensitive...hurt to take bra off. Sore, tired lower back. "Played" and cm was very abundant and like egg white....then an hour or so later back to dry. Very moody

18 DPO - same as day 17.

19 DPO - low firm cervix, and dry/little bit creamy cm but still looks like it does before AF. Boobs don't hurt or feel full at all. Dull achy pressure in lower back. Dr. Confirms pregnancy, do blood tests etc. very moody

20 DPO (today) - low, firm cervix and dry/minimal creamy cm. Not a lot of feeling in boobs but extreme pressure in lower back. Tired and foggy brain.
Moody and irritable already and the day has just begun!

I hope this helps a bit. I was excited and happy to post both because I got a BFP but also because I feel like I was able to look at my symptoms without panicking and overreacting, due to the fact that I was sure we missed out.

God bless you all and know that when the time is right, it will happen.
