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!

Pretty sure I just got my BFP!!

I tested this afternoon with a dollar store cheapie and it came back positive, so I'm pretty sure im pregnant. I'm so excited and shocked. I took a test yesterday afternoon at 11 DPO and it was negative so I wasn't expecting a positive today. I believe I am 12dpo.

I have about at 34 day cycle and this month we used OPK, and tried SMEP and soft cups for the first time.

My symptoms have honestly been exactly the same as my period. Crampy, boobs hurt but not any different than every other month, they're not heavy or tingly, just sore on the sides. I noticed I had more CM than usual and that's about it. I also
Checked my cervix and it is low, hard and closed.

Sending baby dust to you all :)

faint positive 7 dpo 3 months after miscarriage

Hubby and I found out we were pregnant a week after my missed period and got so excited, only to have an early miscarriage a few days later on the day we closed on our house. I thought we'd get pregnant right away and when it didn't happen in those two cycles (i know that's not long but bc I had already been pregnant I was so frustrated at still trying) I decided to stop poas so often and only temp after o since I know my normal temps to ensure I actually ovulated.

My plan worked -I was wayy less stressed until I got 7 positive opks in a row and didn't know what to think. Needless to say I kept temping and was able to pinpoint o day. Now 7 dpo I got a very faint positive, but even my hubs saw it. He says it definitely has color so it's not an evaporation line(!!!!!!!)

1 dpo- boobs didn't get sore following o like every other cycle
2 dpo HOT FLASHES
3 dpo HOT FLASHES
4 dpo HOT FLASHES
5 dpo HOT FLASHES (boobs STILL aren't sore)
6 - back ache, pinching feeling in nipples, EXTREMELY BLOATED even enough though I didn't get to eat at work all day. Someone commented on how peaceful I looked
7- eeek!!! So hungry! In a room of co-workers who were freezing even while wearing sweatshirts, I had on a sleeveless shirt and was STILL SWEATING! Boobs are big! Veryyy faint bfp!

I tested at 3:30 pm after holding for 6 hours. I plan to test against I'll on Friday in hopes that it will be darker.

This time we bd every other day starting on cd 6, and at cd 14 we bd every day until cd 20. Also, I know it seems funny but I made sure to keep legs up for a long time after each time and (tmi) made sure to get just as much enjoyment out of the bd as hubby if you know what I mean!

Pray this one sticks!!!

Weird Symptom and things I did to get my BFP

Hello ladies (and perhaps gentlemen), these stories are what got me thru last month and my tww this month. My husband (26) and myself (25) have only been trying for 2 months, we were expecting it to take much longer but are thrilled. I stopped my bcp in late June; I finished the whole pack including the placebos and had a regular withdraw bleed. This month I o'd on cd 17 of a 28 day cycle (confirmed by opks and temping) and got my BFP at 9 dpo. I tried a couple new things this month. I drank a glass of pomergranate juice (supposedly promotes healthy lining) and a glass of pineapple juice (supposedly helps with implantation) per day after ovulation, I ate Brazil nuts 3 per day up to 7 dpo (they have natural selenium in the to help with implantation), and I also ate (or tried to, it wasn't consistent) pineapple core. I also used Preseed (sparingly) when I needed it on cd 15 (internally) and cd 17 (o day externally). I prayed daily to St. Gerard the patron of all things motherhood. We also did the SMEP. On to my symptoms...

CD 7 I had extreme pain in my right ovary, went in for emergency ob appt. confirmed cyst burst fluid sitting behind uterus was told would clear up in a couple days)
1-3 dpo extremely sore nipples
4 dpo nothing
5 dpo Right breast pain (like I did a ton of push ups) I also got my annual Pap smear. I was worried this would hurt my chances but didn't so don't be afraid to get your annual if you're ttc.
6 dpo Sore BBs, tired take a 2 hr nap after 9 hrs of sleep the night before (confirmed by fitbit).
7 dpo pulling pain about an inch and left of my belly button (not near ovary), slight headache, here is the weird part...I had sore BBs so sore I just wanted to rub them (so I did) and a clear/white substance leaked out of both of my nipples. I have never been pg or bf before. Nurse said could be a symptom (very rare) in early pg or could be high prolactin levels. Suggested if I don't get a BFP to come in for testing. I didn't mess with my boobs at all after that!
8 dpo Hungry and thirsty, can't get enough water! No more sore BBs, symptom free day. Thought for sure I was out. Feeling bummed took a dollar store hpt in the afternoon (after drinking water non-stop all day) my brain told me it was a bad idea but my poas addiction said it is only a dollar. After two minutes it was a bfn, should have known. I threw it away. Then I was crazy enough to dig it back out 10 minutes later and look at it (crazy I know) it had a really faint pink line! I thought to myself just an evap line and to ignore it. Then I looked up all things evap lines. One posted suggested dismantling the test and running water over the test strip, if it were an evap line the dye would wash away if it was a BFP it would stay. I had nothing to lose it was already used. Needless to say it didn't wash away but I still wasn't convinced (didn't want to get my hopes up). Decided to test in the morning with fmu.
9 dpo Tested with fmu on dollar store first. Decided if the line showed up in the first 10 minutes (the cut off) I would use my only frer digital that I had left over. Well needless to say, the dollar store hpt was (faint) positive within 5 minutes. I dipped the frer and after 3 minutes a YES+ showed up. Very excited but still nervous!

Sorry the post is so long but wanted to posted everything I did. Including me being crazy, but the tww will make anyone crazy (or so I justify that to myself) :) Here is to a H&H 9 months to all the other BFP mommas, and lots of luck to those still trying (sending good vibes your way).

Got our first BFP ever!!!!! Baby #1 due April 2015

Wow was this site the best thing ever invented for all us obsessive, single track minded women on the journey to babyville. A little info on us:
Me 30, DH 29 (no babies between the two of us this is our first). Married in Feb of this year and started NTNP in Nov, but after a few months of it "not happening" we (as in me) got serious. First month of actively trying we BD every day before and during my fertile window and still BFN. I didn't temp or use OPKS. So the month we did SMEP and I took Robitussin from Af to O and honestly I really think this helped me since I was on the pill for over 12 years and this apparently does the opposite of what the BC pill does by thinning out the lining. Anyway, I also used Preseed for the first time along with Softcups. I also took Vitex for the entire cycle up until my BFP. Not sure which "did the trick" but maybe it was a combo? I dunno.
Here's my DPO symptoms:
We BD CD10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, and 22. I O'd on CD 16 and could feel the pain in left side
1DPO-Nothing
2DPO- Had a HUGE breakdown and just really didn't like ME. I felt incredibly ugly and insecure which is not usually how I feel.
3DPO-Creamy CM, fatigue
4DPO-Slight cramping, creamy CM
5DPO-More cramping and some burring pinching in the evening
6DPO-Fatigue
7DPO-Creamy CM, sad, lots of gas and bloating, loose bowl movements, woke up starving which is VERY odd for me, twitchy hands
8DPO-Back aches, more gas, woke up starving again even tho I ate a very big meal before bed the night before, dream about baby gifts,
9DPO- gas, cramping, hungry, tired, sore throat, took hpt and fell asleep only to wake up an hour later to a faint line... not sure if it was BFP at the time.
10DPO-EWCM, gas, bloating, fluttering in uterus in the afternoon?, backache (was at work but couldn't take a FMU hpt so figured I'd wait a day :()
11DPO- BFP with FMU!!!!!!, gas, constipated (didn't take one BM at all!! very very odd for me), bloated, cramps (Got beta done - it was 7 hcg)
12DPO-Another BFP with FMU and getting slightly darker, heavy BB, starving again in the morning (this still continues), Constipated or loose bm ( no in-betweens)
13DPO-First day of missed period, another darker BFP with FMU, acne, sore bb, bloating, tired, hungry
14DPO-Same as above
15DPO-Bm are better, got my follow up betas today 138HCG!!!!!! :)
DH and I are beyond happy!!!!!
BABYDUST TO ALL!!!!

My Story.

Hi girls, members and tww stalkers alike. I want to start off by saying, I know exactly how you feel. I had been trying to get my bfp for years and years, so long that im not even really sure how long we've been trying. I stalked this website for years before I joined and actually started being open about my ttc struggles. for such a long time we kept it to ourselves telling people we are SOOO not ready for a baby. I think that was one of my biggest mistakes. Support from your friends and family are huge stress relievers and I truly believe that it helps. I am 6 weeks pregnant today and I wanted to share my bfp story because I feel that I owe it to all of you ttc-ers out there because I know exactly how you are feeling. Ive thought- infact ive KNOWN that I was pregnant at least 2 dozen times and they all ended up in bfns. ive symptom spotted like a mad woman, ive even told my hubby and mother that I was convinced I was pregnant. Ive gone to the doctor for bogus shit just to have a pregnancy test done. Ive had the realization that I was pregnant and got the most warm and comforting sensation all over my body just to find out that I indeed was not pregnant. This journey has been absolute hell for myself and my husband and I got to the point where I truly believed that the universe just knew that I would be a horrible mother and that is why I couldn't get pregnant.

BFP 38yrs old TTC 2 months

Hubby and I are 38 yrs old, first baby for both and 2nd cycle TTC, I got my BFP at 10DPO with the faintest of faintest lines on a FRER, I had pretty much no symptoms 1-9dpo,
9dpo at around 1am (which is really 10dpo) I threw up all my food from night before
11DPO FMU line didn't seem darker than the 10dpo so tested again with SMU and line darker but clear blue digital was negative
11DPO evening- slight crampon in left ovary went to toilet and one dot of reddish blood size of a pea on toilet paper with EWCM like mucus (sorry TMI) and then on second wipe slight pink with mucus again. Then nothing again..think it may have been remnant of Implantation as I had already gotten my BFP.
12DPO FRER and Clearblue regular lines slightly darker, Clearblue Digi positive 1-2 weeks.
Now just praying for a H & H 9 months!
I have a 29/30 day cycle with 12 day LP.
I used Clearblue digital opk for this month although the digi turned out to be useless/faulty and switched to the regular clear blue and right on time got fertile days peak and O day on day 18 and BD'd on day 16 an 17 about 3 times a day.
I was taking pregnacare max for three months prior (these are pregnancy vitamins in the UK but have the same ingredients as Citranatal assure which is a prescription only vitamin in USA and are meant to be quite good)
I ate pineapple everyday from 1-8dpo (not sure if this did anything but is meant to help uterus lining for implantation so no harm in trying)
Cut out caffeine to half a cup in the morning and decaff rest of day for the past two months

TTC 13months #2, First month using softcups

We have a 19mo who we conceived with in 2nd month, so thought we would have no problems with #2.... 13 months down I finally got a BFP!!!! Month after month it's been Bfn after bfn.
Every month we have actively been ttc this month was no different, but I used two extra techniques, 1. Softcups 2.smep
We bd every other day from cd8, so this was cd 8,10,12,14,16, I then got a positive opk on cd 17,18,19 so bd all those days plus on cd 20 and one for luck on cd 23.
I inserted soft cups after every bd sessions and left in for a minimum of 4 hours.
Here's by dpo symptons-
1-8dpo- no symptons
9dpo- dip in temperature, no other symptons
10dpo- rise in temperature, no other symptons, tested BFN
11dpo- hot flushes, achey boobs, Hungery -all mild symptons enought to doubt myself that they are even real, stil high temp
12dpo- same as 11dpo, still high temp, stomach cramps too, tested at 3pm with urine held for 4 hours + BFP on cb digital, tested again at 6pm BFP with boots own brand digital!

Good luck to everyone and never give up! Ironically it happened the month I booked a holiday for in 8 months time and the month we got the all clear from the doctors tests :)

10DPO BFP! 38yrs old 2nd month TTC

Well I'm still in shock!! Im 38 yrs old and this is our 2nd month TTC (although I think the first month we missed O day by 2 days so really doesn't count although I do count it anyways) Ive used opk sticks this month and have been taking pregnacare max tablets for 2 months (these are to be used during pregnancy her in the UK but their ingredients were very similar to the Citranatal Assure brand in the USA which we can't get here but Ive heard great reviews on them so Ive taken the pregnacare max as prenatals.
I O on cycle day 18 and BD'd on days 16 and 17
Ive had absolutely no symptoms except very early this morning at 10dpo nausea and actually threw up all my food from dinner last night, and slight twitching and pulling sensation in left ovary this morning.
I had taken a test on 9dpo early am with FMU and was stark negative. But this morning had a weird feeling and tested with SMU and faint positive line on FRER within one minute, and another faint line on Superdrugs own early test.
I also did a clear blue digi date but that was negative I believe because they take some time to show up positive so will retest with another digi in a few days.

My hubby was out and was picking me up this afternoon to go to the mall together and when we were at the mall I said 'lets go to the baby store just to look' He said ''awww sweety it might get your hopes up and I don't want you to be upset'' once in the store I turned to him and said 'lets buy something for the baby' he looked at me and said ''oh baby but what if you find out your not pregnant?'' I then showed him the positive test and he cried…he loved the way I surprised him. We bought a little white newborn lamb toy and a white knit baby cardigan as our first baby 'items' to celebrate.
Im still in shock and am so nervous, now i keep praying the lil baby sticks, will be testing every day until next week to see line progression and will be booking my first antenatal doc visit.

My BFP @ 39 (with progression pics)

After ttc for 9mths I got a very clear bfp 2days ago at 16dpo. Af was due anyday from 15dpo on and I hadn't tested prior to this. After too many bfns I decided to just wait this one out. After a temp drop on Friday morning though I decided "what the heck". I psyched myself up for 1hour to see yet another bfn. I am ecstatic though that I was so wrong!

I posted a blog on Friday 3rd titled "Good Morning BFP" with tonnes of details so I won't do that again here. I just wanted to put my pics up here as I know how much I loved pouring over posts with these pics. I

I want to say here though that I had no symptoms during my tww. I had noted things here and there but really they were no different from other cycles and could easily be written off.

What was perhaps noticable though looking back was the absence of any bb tenderness at all. They're still not tender - maybe just ever so faintly starting to? I didn't have tenderness with my 2nd child either. My cp was all over the place even the day of my bfp. So as I figured all along, the cp theory is rubbish. Oh and also, I just did an opk to test that theory about it being positive if you're pregnant and that to was debunked. It was completely stark white where the test line should be. The only other thing during my tww that I wondered about was that my temp didn't drop as early as it usually does.

I had been on Clomid for the 3mths prior with bfns. This month though was natural..and whammo bfp! I'd had a hsg on cd9 that was clear and saw a fertility specialist for the 1st time that same day with a plan to resume Clomid the next cycle. Abandon plan!

I am 39yrs old and this is baby no.3 for me. I have two healthy children already aged 6 & 4. They are going to be thrilled when I tell them in a few months time. Dh has struggled with the thrilling news....but that's another blog for another day. I however am going to remain ecstatic :)

Hoping and praying my little one has sticky hands and feet.

Unusual symptoms, bfn 10dpo, then BFP 12dpo

Just got my BFP and thought I'd share my symptoms as I got none of the 'usual' ones. (TMI warning btw!)

2dpo- tasted like my mouth was bleeding, so much that I ran to the bathroom to check.

5dpo- forgetfulness- I left the back door open when I left work and got called out by security, never done that before!

6dpo- more forgetfulness, felt like my brain didn't work

7dpo- constipation and cramps, felt like trapped wind. Slept all afternoon

8dpo- had a spontaneous sleep orgasm which woke me up!!!! Never ever experienced that before!!! Started to think something was up!

10dpo- tested with fmu, BFN. Gutted, felt like af was coming

11dpo- hunger in waves, really full then suddenly ravenous.

12dpo- tested with fmu, BFP!!

Sorry for the tmi, I just had to share as these 'symptoms' were so different to my first and second pregnancies.
