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.

Father's day bfp, on edd of Nov loss

Hello ladies! While this is my first post, I have been stalking this site for nearly a year, each month searching out and comparing my symptoms, praying for my own bfp. A little backstory, and then I'll get right to my symptoms by dpo..
I'm 37, DH is 31. I have one dd from previous relationship who will be turning 19 at the end of this month. Last August, DH and I decided ttc, and by October we had our bfp. At 9.5wks, we discovered the hb had stopped at @ 7.3wks, and we were obviously both shocked and devastated. 2 wks later, I miscarried naturally. We decided to begin ttc again immediately, given my age, and each month I would symptom spot and be certain I was pg, but either af would begin right on time or that ugly bfn would stare back at me and I would know she was on her way. I also knew that 6/15/14 would be a very difficult day for us, as it was the edd for our angel baby, as well as dh's brother and fiance's due date.. (yes, we were due on the same day, which made the last 7 months heartbreaking). Well, yesterday, on 6/15, I gave hubby the best first father's day gift ever when I showed him a very clear bfp at 13 dpo! Hoping and praying this is our miracle baby xoxo
6/1 (cd 16) positive opk bd
6/2 positive opk bd
cd 17 confirmed ovulation with bbt
1-7dpo no symptoms 7dpo temp dip .04
8 dpo temp spike, feeling famished, oddly exhausted and some strange pulling/pinching lower abdomen
8dpo-current bbs progressively tender, ultra sensative nipples, dull af type cramps/pressure. temps still high, however at 10 dpo a major dip, which I firmly believed was a sure indicator of the witch and that I was out again this month. Also at 10dpo, side cramps on right, as though I drank a gallon of water and then ran a mile. So painful that I had to sit down at work. However, an hour later I was fine
10dpo until now, peeing a lot more than usual, cp hsc, bbs sore, cramping/pressure continues.
Yesterday, at 13dpo, I decided to take an hpt, and only because I was winded after coming up one flight of stairs. That was the first time I thought poas may not end in tears, and being the edd of our angel, I didn't really think I could handle the bad news, but something inside told me I wouldn't be upset. VERY CLEAR BFP! Hoping this baby sticks. Calling dr today to schedule beta and have progesterone checked. We are overwhelmed and I guess I just want to thank all of the ladies who contributed their own bfp stories because reading them gave me the hope that we needed to continue.

BFP at 17 dpo afraid of m/c

My bbt has been a constant at 98.7-98.9 since ovulation and more so implantation and today at 19dpo it dipped to 98.5. It has gotten me scared since all I do is read how low temps can mean low progesterone and possible m/c. It's not below my cover line but since it's my first time ever conceiving I don't know if it's normal. Also for the past 6 days I've had af dull cramps and I know it's normal but now they've subsided and that has me concerned as well. I'm probably just being paranoid but would love some feedback from the experienced. I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks and lots of positivity to all!

BFP After smep for 1 month

My dh (33) and I (31) have on the ttc train for 9 months now I've 2 miscarriages in this time. It had been 4 months since the last one. I thought we'd try smep this month, my hubby was on top form think he liked the structure of knowing when he needed, and as a result he hasn't moaned once having to bd when told, we all know how unromantic it is!

I personally think it works because the sperm is there waiting for the egg. As we normally don't start bding until after a positive opk. Keeping trying ladies and try and relax and stay positive.

BFP 10 DPO w/almost NO symptoms

Hello Ladies,

I got my BFP a week ago, but haven't felt comfortable posting about it till I was 100% sure since I got it so early (10 DPO) and wanted to make sure it wasn't a chemical pregnancy. I did want to make sure to post though to let all you ladies know that you can get that BFP with almost ZERO symptoms! I am very blessed that it only took DH and I two months to get our BFP, but I got very serious about it in the second month and here's everything I did differently:

1. We used SMEP and BD'd on CD 10, 12, 14 (got +OPK on CD 16) 16, 17 and 18. We were too wiped out honestly to do the CD 20, but I knew I had O'd already since I also temped (another difference this month).
2. I was very worried about my CM since I have to take an antihistamine daily, so I ordered and started taking Fertilica (two before bed) and FertileCM (3 per day 1 morning, one afternoon, one night) from the last day of AF until about a day after confirming I O'd (via BBT).
3. Used Pre-Seed every time we BD'd
4. On the day I got my first + OPK I took two Mucinex a day (one in the morning and one in the evening)
5. From 5-9 DPO I took one benedryl a day (heard it helps with implantation)
6. From CD 15 - 2 DPO I made certain I was drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.

As far as symptoms go, I had almost nothing. The only thing I thought was strange was that from the day after I got my +OPK, to about 1 DPO, my ovulations pains were INTENSE. Usually I get a few ovary cramps during O for a couple hours, but this was a few days and a bit more intense. I also had a sore throat for literally one day around 3-4 DPO, which may or may not have had to do with anything. I also was feeling really irritable, but found it difficult attributing that to anything. After that went away there was nothing. No sore boobs, no extreme exhaustion, no implantation spotting, no full feeling in my uterus, NOTHING! I was sure I was out when on 9 DPO I started getting some AF cramps and just knew that she was getting ready to appear. I had totally counted us out and then on 10 DPO one of my best friends who never wanted kids told me his wife was preggo. I was happy for them but so upset that I felt it would take us so long. When I got home, DH had to run some errands and I just had the weirdest urge to POAS even though I promised myself I would wait till AF was late. Lo and behold there was a pretty faint BFP!! I ran out to the store and bought about a million more, every brand, every kind, and did them all the next morning with FMU. All were BFP! It's been very exciting, though I have to be honest and say the hormones are definitely getting the better of me right now. I've been a bit moody and had a few crying spells. I'm hoping I can get that under control a bit more and just enjoy this miracle. I also wanted to let any ladies doing BBT know that my post O temps did not spike tremendously. There was a dip between 4-6 DPO and then from 7-10 DPO it literally stayed the same and I was convinced I couldn't be pregnant cause it wasn't going up. Praying for the stickiest bean possible and sending all my baby dust to you wonderful ladies. I wouldn't have been able to do this without your support!

BFP after BFN IS possible!

I wanted to share my story because I was so disappinted when I got my BFN, and reading other people's success stories got me throught my TWW!

After TTC for two months, my DH and I decided to try to the SMEP, using pre-seed and mucinex. I was really hopeful the plan would work.

After seeing all of the early BFP success stories, I couldn't help testing early. I tested on 11DPO, 12 DPO and 14 DPO and got all BFN's! I was really, really disappointment and convinced that AF was on her way. I still had a deep down feeling that I was pregnant, but had talked myself into preparing for AF.

AF was due on 16DPO. I had a lot of symptoms that could be related to pregnancy, but could also be AF. The day AF was due, I was really queasy all day. After lunch I felt super sick and finally had to run to the bathroom at work and throw up. I went home, had a small fever (100.4) and stayed in bed for the rest of the night. I also had a lot of diahrea, so I figured I had the stomach bug. However since AF is like clockwork, I decided I was going to test the next morning.

At 17DPO I woke up and immediately tested. I wasn't really expecting a BFP, so I went downstairs to make coffee, and when I came upstairs I was surprised and excited to see i got my BFP!!! I ran out to the store at lunchtime to get the clearblue easy advnaced digital test to just make sure that it was real, and I got another BFP, saying i was 1-2 weeks pregnant.

Good luck to all of you TTC and I hope you get your BFP's soon! :)

Pregnant second cycle, yayyy!

I'm actually 26 weeks pregnant today with my first, so it's been a while but wanted to share :) I got my bfp a couple days before Thanksgiving at 11dpo. I have PCOS but I ovulate every month. I spot 7-10 days before my period and have really bad periods. I went on basically a diabetic diet and inositol (b complex that helps with blood sugar) 3 months before we started trying and the spotting got better and my periods were more tolerable. The month of my BFP I didn't spot at all which kind of tipped me off. Almost in my third trimester and little one is doing great! Kicks so much! It's magical :)

9 months of TTC finally BFP at 10DPO !!!

My biggest clue that this was our month is I didn't have as many "symptoms" as I had every other month. And usually the week before AF I get a lot of acne but the acne never came. My temps also stayed .5 degrees higher than my coverline which is really high for me. I used musinex right before ovulation it helped increase my cm because I normally don't have a lot and I took benadryl for 4 nights in a row 5 days after O to help with implantation. And I've been taking prenatals every evening and I think those nutrients really helped us concieve.

1-3 dpo- I noticed sore nipples right away. Usually my boobs gets sore 8 days or so before AF but they werent sore, only my nipples were.
4 dpo- My lower back started bothering me which it rarely does but I remembered that feeling with my first two and I thought maybe something was going on :)
5-6 dpo- Nipples still sore and no pre AF acne ..also started having a small amount of clear sticky cm but not much
7 dpo- Terrible cramping like AF was on her way. I even had to use a heating pad it was that bad. Thought maybe this wasn't our month.
8 dpo- I started getting out of breath when I did normal every day activity, just enough to make me stop and catch my breath. Still barely any cm. Cramping had pretty much stopped now it was more like a few twinges and aches but not strong like AF.
9 dpo- Easily upset today, listening to radio and cried. But also pretty normal before AF too. But now lower back was killing me! Thought it was still too early to test.
10 dpo- My legs started cramping and my lower back still ached and the AF cramps never returned. I was also way more tired than usual, so I thought why not and I tested. BFP!! Kind of faint but definitely visible.
11 dpo- Waited till that evening and tested again BFP and a nice dark line!

I am now 5 weeks and I still have a very small amount of cm so just because you don't have a lot of cm doesn't mean you're out! This board has helped me get thru the last 9 months and my early miscarriage 3 months ago.

Don't give up hope ladies it will happen! I pray this little one sticks around!
