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!

BFP after MMC

I hope this BFP story turns into a LO story in December. I'm feeling so tentatively happy and mixed up and grateful to the ladies who shared their stories on here. It helped me keep my hopes up and got my through the TTC slog!! (it is a hard slog sometimes). I had my MMC in November last year - didn't know anything was wrong until my 12 week scan, had lost it at 8 weeks. I had an ERPC and then it took ages -48 days for my cycle to return. Before this my AF's were irregular anyway - maybe about 30-35 days but had been lengthening up to 40 and I was worried about what on earth was going on. So after the first AF post MC my cycle seemed to be almost text-book about 28-29 days - which was strange but I hoped would help our chances. I still seemed to be ovulating fairly late though - so had started to think about seeing the Dr and asking if I had a luteal phase problem. Anyway this month was the month I was going to go to the Dr and pester them into giving me clomid or progesterone or something to make me feel I was doing my utmost to help things along. For the year we'd been trying (excluding the 3 months I was pg) I had been testing with OPKs. Post MC I had ordered pre-seed and instead softcups but the DH got fed up with the pre-seed and asked to go back to au naturel lol! I found the softcups handy (a little uncomfortable) for being able to get up soon after dtd and not feeling guilty for going about your normal day. I also took l-arginine, a good multi vit, omega 3, 6, and 9, and I'm not religious but I did sometimes ask the little star we lost to help us to get to this point. I also read the SMEP and tried to follow the guidelines for us at the older end of the TTC gang (37 and partner 38). Anyway - I felt much more pregnant the other months that I had BFN's so I didn't trust my symptoms at all this time. I did notice that I was bloated and my ankles were starting to swell about 7 DPO. At around the same time (warning tmi) I got a bit constipated and was laughing at being the same as another story on here who called her BM's deer pellets lol! I also had to go to bed at 20.30 because I was so tired at DPO 12. Got BFN on 9 DPO and again on 11 DPO, but still felt something was 'up', so decided to try at 14 DPO and got a faint but undeniable line. It was a fairly cheap test so the next day bought the clearblue conception indicator tests and took another cheapish test that day (as couldn't test fmu) and it was slightly darker. Then tested with the Clearblue today and got the longed for word 'Pregnant' and weeks since conception 1-2. Just hope that this is a happy and healthy 9 mths and that some of my worries and fears will go away when I get that first scan. Thank you and don't give up. I was as low as it's possible to be with my loss and I want to tell people who've felt that to not give up, believe in your strength and do whatever you have to to get through the 2ww - most of all be kind and gentle to yourself and keep hoping. xxxx

BFP one cycle after MC

I am so thrilled to be posting my BFP story here. I was on this site almost everyday of my TWW reading stories and praying it would be my turn soon. I had an MC and D&C on the 18th of January 2014. We were devastated, but God has a reason for everything. On the 22nd of February, 5 weeks after D&C, I got my first AF, and I was ready to get trying again. We did the sperm meets egg plan, and we used Clearblue easy read OPKs and Preseed. I got a smiley face on the 11th of March, so here is my symptoms by DPO: 1DBO: Excess saliva, sore boobs all day! Right and left side abdominal pains, serious nausea and heartburn, sensitive to smells, low back ache (Talk about the whole shebang!) I got my smiley face on the clear blue OPK O day: same as yesterday but with terrible nausea, very emotional and nipples were painful. Negative OPK today. 1DPO: Slight right side abdominal pains, pain in left boob, I still have a lot of watery CM (My version of fertile CM) 2DPO: Woke up with a migraine and nausea, slight cramps (Left and right sides), lower back pains, very irritable. I had car sickness on the way to work, boobs are sore on and off, mainly under my arms, CM is still very wet- a combination of watery and creamy. 3DPO: Woke up with a little nausea, some right sided abdominal pains, sore boobs through the day,uncomfortable cramping and lower back pains, CM same as yesterday, migraine. 4DPO: Headache in the morning, on and off boob pains, CM is less and more creamy and chunky. beginning to feel tired. 5DPO: Sore boobs (My anthem), on and of AF type cramps, panties are damp and CM is creamy, feel hungry soon after eating, some nipple pain. 6DPO: Woke up with severe pain in left breast, some sharp right sided abdominal pains, shortness of breathe, major car sickness and general morning nausea. 7DPO: Woke up soooo tired, all I wanted to do was sleep, symptoms are much less, I'm basically just tired and miserable, and of cause, sore boobs. 8DPO: Tired, boobs are bigger and heavy and sore on and off, CM is creamy and not so much,still cramping, salivating a lot,heartburn and nausea that feels like a light hangover.. later in the evening I had major hot flashes, became sensitive to the smell of petrol and potatoes, felt some pulling in my abdomen. 9DPO: Had terrible tummy pains last night, pulling in abdomen, boobs feel even bigger and heavier with some bumps around the nipples. 10DPO: Woke up with a headache, boobs sore on the sides, pulling in abdomen. tested with cheap strip and thought I saw something, disregarded it as BFN. 11DPO: Same story as yesterday except that now I have so much CM I can feel it gushing out of me when I walk or stand, need to wear panty liner. tested again on cheapie strip, line is faint but there, I still don't trust the cheapies. 12DPO: Same thing as yesterday, Feel so bloated and uncomfortable, Goodbye appetite! Got some nausea today and craving beef stew. so i went to buy a proper test cause I don't trust cheapies, and lo and behold, my BFP! So thrilled! I prayed so much after our MC that God heal my body and give us a child. I specifically asked for a March BFP and God is faithful. I trust Him and i know this is our baby. Baby dust to all you ladies out there. Don't give up!

My BFP Story!!

DH and I are 28 and we decided that after a few months of trying with no results we would try the SMEP. This to me seemed like a great way to find out what may be going wrong in our efforts before looking into anything more serious. Here's my timeline: Feb 11- cd1 we got off to a bad start at the beginning not BDing all of the suggested days.. We did on CD 9, 12, 15 feb 26 CD 16- this is the day my phone app predicted I would ovulate. I got what I thought was positive opk and BD CD 16 and 17 BUT.. feb 27 CD 17- The positive was just if it was read wrong or I caught the end. I figured I was out for the month but I kept taking opk just incase I was reading it wrong. THEN I got what looked like another positive on CD 19 so we BDed that day and the next 2 days. I very much felt that I ovulated on this day which was March 1st, and realized that perhaps I ovulate a little later in my cycle than what I had been thinking and this was probably what held us back so far. Anyway, I really didn't show many symptoms. I was pretty tired but other than that...nothing much as different and I figured I was still out for the month. I never saw any implantation signs and didn't track my early days. at 9 dpo I had some slight cramping and figured AF was coming early. 11 dpo - I am still cramping but no early AF and I normally only cramp right before the which shows up. So I told myself..well I will just take a test and find out what kind of cramps these are... and I got a faint line. I sent that to my BFF and she told me that the faint line wasn't cutting I posted on here and got supportive answers!! I tested again 12 dpo and 13 dpo. the line got darker!! by 13 dpo I was puking at work. at 14 dpo my clear blue digital came up pregnant for the first time! On this day I almost upchucked from smelling this fruity soap we have in the break room. lol. We are so excited:) Best of luck to all of you!!

BFP After TTC For 1 Month With PCOS and Hypothyroidism

I was diagnosed with PCOS about one year ago. The OBGYN I saw at that time thrust a brochure about PCOS at me, told me if the symptoms were bothersome she could prescribe me birth control, that it would take a long time for me to become pregnant, and ushered me out the door. I was devastated because even though DH and I were not ready to TTC at the time, I did eventually want children and was no longer sure if that would or could become a reality. I also found out I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism - so a double whammy for possible issues with fertility. I took things into my own hands, did some research, and began charting my BBT. I learned alot about my body over that year of charting. It did appear based on BBT that I was ovulating on my own almost every month although nearly every cycle I had 3-7 days of spotting prior to AF and tended to ovulate later (CD 17-21). I also noted large fluctuations in my luteal phase. I do also have other symptoms of PCOS although all bloodwork came back pretty normal. I began taking Vitex in January 2014. DH was unaware but we timed intercourse using the SMEP and used PreSeed even though I never did get a positive OPK (I have a very short LH surge). All other signs confirmed that I ovulated on February 2, 2014 (CD 15) and I got my BFP on Feb. 13. My symptoms by DPO: 1-5 DPO - Nothing out of the ordinary 6 DPO - Went to urgent care due to upper respiratory issues and was diagnosed with bronchitis. Honestly, thought I would be out due to sickness but got the MD to prescribe a safe antibiotic just in case. 7 DPO - Hot flashes but thought it was due to bronchitis infection 8 DPO - Really strange sensation in uterus; almost like it was closing up or squeezing just weird sensation I had never felt before- this made me pause but test with Wondfo IC was BFN 9 DPO - Tiny amount of tannish, stringy CM when wiping. I might have missed it if I wasn't looking for signs of pregnancy. Figured I was about to start spotting like always prior to AF but thought maybe IB 10 DPO - Nothing noticeable 11 DPO - Tested with FMU with Wondfo IC. Was 100% expecting a BFN and had to rub my eyes when I realized a second line had shown up. Dipped a FRER with same urine and also a clear BFP! Pinching and Cramping in uterus on/off all day and diarrhea. No appetite, boobs slightly sore, and can smell everything. 12 DPO - Valentine's Day. Wondfo IC and FRER still BFP!!! Pinching and Cramping in uterus on/off all day, hot flashes but also get cold easily, face flushed at times, woke up sweating. Again no appetite and slight soreness in boobs that comes and goes. Surprised DH with BFP FRER sticks! 13 DPO - All tests still BFP and slightly thicker/pinker lines. Still cramping on and off in uterus and hot/cold flashes. No real appetite. Boobs are not as tender today but I do occasionally feel this weird tingly sensation in them. Obviously after my experience with that OBGYN I am still in shock that I got my BFP so quickly. I just wanted to share my story to encourage others who may be in the same situation. Its still early so I am cautiously optimistic that everything will progress normally but it just shows that Doctors are not always right and God is the One in control!
