BFP at 10 DPO (with a hint at 9dpo) with few symptoms

EEEK! I don't really believe this is happening, but four brands of tests can't lie to you, right?! I had almost no definite symptoms- most were pretty typical of ever tww for me. 1-3 dpo: nothing 4 dpo: Possible implantation day. Temp dip, lots of typical (for me) luteal phase symptoms- slightly sore boobs, sore legs, gas, etc. Had a major hot flash that night- my face was burning up, and my temp spiked 3 degrees higher than that morning. 5 dpo: streak of blood in cm, temp went back to normal, dull ache in bbs, small amount of creamy cm when I'm usually dry 6-7 dpo: more of the previous listed symptoms, but nothing unusual for me, more creamy cm 8 dpo:started feeling crampy up high, around my stomach, like gas pains, felt like my belly button was being tugged inward, creamy cm 9 dpo: very very faint BFP on wondfo, creamy cm 10 dpo: BFP (faint) on Wonfo, Answer, Dollar store, and FRER Until I felt the tug on my belly button, I was convinced this month was a bust. That cramping was something I hadn't experienced before and was my first clue that something might be going on in there. Things we did differently this time: * BD'd like crazy. The two previous months, we BD'd 2-3 times in the fertile window and that was it, due to travel and other complications. This month, we pretty much BD'd two days on, two days off from AF to ovulation. It was loosely based on sperm meets egg. * I used OPKs for the first time this month. Turns out I ovulated almost a week after I thought I did. If you're on the fence, get some! I used the wondfo cheapies from amazon and they worked great for me. * Drank Herb-Lore Pre-conception tea from AF to Ovulation * I did buy some preseed, but we only used it once- 5 days before ovulation, so I don't know that it made a difference. * Stuck a pillow under my butt after BD for 30-60 minutes. I found there was less leakage if I laid on my side with the pillow under my hip * I have been taking a pre-natal vitamin for 4 months, but recently added a slow release iron (just in the last 6 days) And... I think that's it! Now to find a way to tell the hubby!

SMEP worked!

This is my second cycle trying to conceive and we trI'd the SMEP this time and it worked! In addition, this cycle, I laid in bed all night after BD because I forgot to buy soft cups. I also drank healthy cycle tea to help regulate my cycle and used OPK's starting at CD 11. I O'd on either CD 16 or 17. We also used Preseed. I am now 11dpo. I am thanking God for this blessing and trying to stay positive as I fear an ectopic pregnancy. I had one 5 years ago before DH and I got married. I will schedule an appt for blood work this week. Thinking about everyone out there and your TTC journey! Best wishes and plenty of baby dust!

Blessed with BFP after MC

Hi there, Ladies! I am super excited to share my symptoms with you!! DH and I have been trying for a long time for baby #1. We were really excited earlier this year when I had my first BFP. Sadly, that pregnancy ended with a MC at 5 weeks. We took a month off after, then got right back to trying. Several months later, and I have another BFP. I haven't told DH yet because my HCG numbers were a bit low (37 at 12 DPO), and I wanted to make sure they doubled before I got him all excited. Today, I got the results from my 14 DPO blood draw--146! My numbers are definitely doubling! I really hope that they doubled appropriately, and that they stay where they need to be. I am definitely nervous, scared, and excited. I definitely lost some of the blissful innocence of pregnancy with my MC. All around me, people are having babies, and we have been the couple silently trying for longer than most of those around us. We have been the subject of innocent jokes, casual conversation, intrusive prodding, etc. It can be really hurtful sometimes, but I thank God that I have been blessed with an incredible husband, who has been so loving, warm, and kind to me. As far as the pregnancy, I literally knew from the day after O. I had different post O symptoms, and that really gave it away for me. Ok, here are the symptoms!! :) CD 16 O: I definitely felt O. I am a total chart addict, so I knew exactly when we should O. I also use the Pearly Fertility Monitor. We BD on O night. We randomly decided to try the Shettle's Method--more as an experiment than anything. Gotta keep this baby-making interesting! ;) 1 DPO: Nothing--no nipple soreness that I normally have post O. HUGE sign to me. I ALWAYS have nipple soreness. It's how I know that I am post O, even before my chart shows crosshairs. The only thing that I had was a stuffy nose and some heart flutters in the late evening. 2 DPO: I felt crampy. I NEVER get cramps, even before AF--huge sign. I am gluten-intolerant (non-Celiac, blood diagnosed), and I felt like I had eaten a bunch of gluten. 3 DPO: I wanted bell peppers like they were the most amazingly delicious food to ever be grown. I also took a two-hour, dead-to-the-world-I-hope-the-house-doesn't-burn nap. Still no sore BBs. I had a really stuffy nose. Some cramps still. Very unusual. Definitely knew something was up. So tired. I also started getting super vivid dreams. I would wake up exhausted from how real they seemed. 4 DPO: During another crazy deep nap, I woke up hot and sweaty--kind of like what I imagine menopausal women have at night. My heart was also racing. It wasn't "that" kind of vivid dream, either. ;) I was also craving more strange food. Like, I had to have it. My hips were achey. I was dizzy, tired, and peed nonstop. I had a stuffy nose, but an increased sense of smell. 5 DPO: Slept in. I was really flushed, even DH noticed it. I was flushed even on my back and arms. More CM. Dizziness, frequent urination, STARVING, small cramp, could smell everything, and more vivid dreams. 6 DPO: More CM. I was taking a nap, and I had this freaky electric pain radiating all around my rib cage. It woke me up, and I freaked out and left the house (figuring, of course, I was about to die at home alone of some freaky heart thing or something). It lasted about 15 minutes. My heart was also racing. It made me really anxious. Still tired. Started feeling O pain again--odd. I also started to get the metallic taste in my mouth that we all hear about. My throat was sore and I could smell everything again, even with a stuffy nose. Vivd dreams again. 7 DPO: UTI--lame! Restless sleep, can't fall asleep. Lightly tender BBs. My dr. had me take a urine preg. test, and it wasn't positive or negative she said. She sent blood work out--negative. I KNEW it was wrong. I even told them on the phone that it was wrong, and I would be getting more done later. I felt pressure in my lower abdomen. I felt hot, my mouth felt hot, and I was flushed. I was super tired, had a headache/mild nausea. The metallic taste has continued. Vivd dreams, again. My teeth also were more sensitive. 8 DPO: So thirsty in the middle of the night...screwed up my temps! Lame. HUGE backache...all of my muscles locked up in my back for no reason. Really unusual. Only a slight right side cramp. Starting to feel out, but knowing I wasn't. Still tired. Frequent urination, assumed to be a UTI thing. Couldn't sleep. Stuffy nose. 9 DPO: Right side cramp. Feeling out. Felt TERRIBLE at workout. I couldn't get through it. I felt like I was going to have an asthma attack, but I don't have asthma. I usually rock this class, but I couldn't get through it. Even the instructor noticed, and took it easy on me. Took a test. Super faint, probably line eyed, line. I had heartburn (huge sign with BFP with last pregnancy).

Moon cup moon cup moon cup!!!!

So it's a little late and I'm tired and I'm nauseous and I'M PREGNANT!! I have a whole load of stuff to write down about my BFP and symptoms etc but the main thing I wanted to share was this last cycle I used a moon cup! And I am sure that after 6 months of trying that is what helped. I spent 2 yrs trying for my first baby so I know how desperate things get. This obviously doesn't come with a guarantee but it might work for some people. And if not just use it for ur period it saves u loads of money and is good for the environment albeit a little gross! Good luck ladies. I hope this one sticks for me and you all get the BFPs you deserve.

Faint line???

I'm almost Forsure I ovulated on the 6th of the month. Cervix was very high I couldn't reach it. But I had got CM mucus the stretchy kind.

Whoa. Anyways I sleep all day yesterday. Today mild cramps n backaches n more hot flashes. More vivid dreams. I got up this morning n pee on a stick just praying. N this what appeared.

BFP cycle 6!

I have been TTC for 6 cycles. I had a luteal phase defect and have been taking b6 for the past 2 months, along with RED MACA root and prenatals. This was our first month using preseed. Tuesday morning I took 3 tests (FRER, First Signal and Internet Cheapie) and all 3 had SUPER faint lines. So faint that I almost thought I was seeing things and they didnt show well on pictures. Wednesday morning I took another FRER, First Signal and Internet Cheapie and they had bolder lines on them. They were still light, but bold enough that I knew I wasnt seeing things. So then I went and got my FR Digital and Clear Blue Easy Digital. Both had BFPs! I am freaking out I am so excited. I cant believe this is really happening after 6 months. :) I have been bloated and gassy the last few days. Boobs and nips are sore and prominent veins on my chest. I have been cramping the last few days like I have to poop, even after Ive already gone. I feel like I have to pee more frequently as well, even when my liquid intake is the same as it has been. Also been having backache (but I chalked that up to carrying my 2 yr old) and headache (loud 2 yr old anyone?!) Some slight acne, but not much. Fatigue has been growing worse the last few days and I tend to get nauseous when I dont eat enough. Really hoping this is a sticky bean! Good luck and baby dust to everyone else!

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!!!! xoxox
