BFP After Multiple BFNs!

This was the first cycle since we started trying for our third and last baby. I don't chart but I have very regular cycles of 28 days and we just BD regularly throughout. With my other two, and with my chemical in between, I got my BFP 4-5 days before AF was due, so this cycle I started testing reeeeaaally early and got repeated BFNs at what I figured were 8-12 DPO (estimating, since I don't chart but must have historically had a normal LP because I have always gotten pg easily). Two days before AF was due, I took a FR digi and it was -NO. I began to feel crampy and while I knew I felt like this in early pg, I didn't let myself get my hopes up and just convinced myself that AF was about to show. Well, AF day came and went with another BFN on a cheapie, and then I had the tiniest bit of pink on the toilet paper before bed so figured AF was just arriving. But woke up to nothing, and then after another 2 days of crampy twinges, gurgly belly and a bit of dizziness, I finally bought some new FRERs this morning and took a test... BFP!! Hoping this little bean's getting comfy in there. And by the way, I am still BFN on the ic, but a second FRER was BFP so I can trusting that one! So the moral of the story is, don't test super early! And if you do, remember you are not out until AF shows (even if you've had really early BFPs in the past)! Oh, and spend the $ and get a good test :) Good luck to all!!

2nd Cycle TTC, BFP @ 10 DPO

I've read this website for months even leading up to my husband and I TTC! I'm 27 and he's 28, I didn't know what to expect when TTC and after the first month I was a little down. This month, I tried our own take on the SMEP and used OPKs. In addition, I took Mucinex the week before O and laid down for at least 30 minutes after we BD'ed. He was out of town the week leading up to O, so we didn't get to BD that week! The actual week of O we were on vacation, and I definitely had moderate amounts of alcohol, coffee, etc. Last period August 4 BD CD 6, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 (O day based on OPK), 23, 24, 25 and 26 (on vacation!) 1 DPO: Normally I start to cramp lightly right after O and leading all the way up to my period, this never happened. 6 DPO: Breasts sore, but this is a normal PMS symptom for me. It really wasn't much different. 7 DPO: Here I notice I still don't have cramps, and that's a huge sign for me. At this point normally I'd be taking OTC pain reliever because my cramps get so bad. 8 DPO: I use an OPK to see if that shows any signs of being positive. It actually does come up with a fairly dark line, but not as dark as the control. Last month when I did this this time it came up stark white. 9 DPO: I cannot finish my coffee in the morning. I have a nauseous stomach all day. Not enough that I feel like I will get sick, but more like a constant dull sick feeling. Also I have a very full feeling in my low stomach area. 10 DPO: Still nauseous, cannot drink coffee and tired. Test when I get home from work and slight positive! Can't believe it! 11 DPO: Test this morning with FMU and it's a much darker pink line on FRER! I'm very grateful for our pregnancy and hope these symptoms help others! Now just praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy!

Surreal

Well, after testing with Wondfo's for a couple of days, I feel like I have my confirmed answer after two positive FRERs. At this point I'm just so shocked, I can hardly believe it's real. I stopped taking the pill in March, and this was our third month of actively TTC. I guess I had it in my head that since it was taking a few months, there must be something wrong; but now I know I was worrying myself to death over nothing! Just because you don't get pregnant RIGHT AWAY like some people are fortunate enough to have happen, it certainly does not mean there's a problem. Even if the sperm meets the egg at the perfect moment and there are no underlying issues, there is still only a 25% chance of conception in any given month. It WILL happen, whether it takes a month or two or several months of trying :) Don't ever lose hope. Of course my worry about TTC has now shifted into worry about everything being okay and going smoothly. I'm trying not to be too crazy like I was while TTC, lol. Symptoms: I think I started noticing changes at around 6dpo. My nipples became unusually sensitive -- almost like a burning feeling. I also had a few dizzy spells around this time, and my struggle with insomnia became worse. I didn't really attribute any of this to pregnancy, and actually thought I was out for the month since I felt perfectly fine and normal except for those few things. At 10dpo, I got my first positive test (very faint) on Wondfo test strips. At 11dpo, the symptoms hit me like a ton of bricks. Very bloated, bad cramps, a tight "full" feeling in my stomach, pain in my hips and lower back, constipation, very sore boobs, more trouble getting comfortable and sleeping at night, slightly stronger sense of smell, and a burning sensation in my stomach and boobs--really weird and hard to explain. I got my first positive FRER at 11dpo. Right now I feel like I have a bad hangover, haha. Things I did differently this month: I took an Agnus Castus Vitex supplement every morning for the first half of my cycle. I also took a B-complex that included B6 twice daily and stopped at ovulation. My DH took FertilAid, and we used Pre-Seed. And since I'm a workout-aholic, I decided to try majorly scaling back and cutting out running entirely. I honestly think the biggest key to our success this month was BD'ing more, lol. We followed SMEP for the first time and actually BD'd a little more frequently than that. In our previous tries, I think we were BD'ing too late. Starting on CD8 and keeping it consistent definitely helped! Also, I used the CB Advanced Digital OPK's, and I credit them with accurately catching my LH surge--the cheap strips showed me O' ing a full week later, which I don't think could have been right. I can't tell you how much being part of this site has helped me. I always loved reading the BFP stories, because they gave me so much hope. I still just can't believe I'm writing one. Thank you all for your inspiring stories and words of encouragement. Baby dust to all!!!!!!!

MY BFP STORY AN INTERESTING JOURNEY

So I am 37 in 2 weeks, my husband is 39. We have a little girl Ella and she is 5yrs, she was conceived with no problems at all. This time around I also thought it would be easy and quick. 1,2,3,4,5,6 months and nothing, all my friends either preg or with babies. I was so despite for a baby. Due to my age I was told I needed to seek a specialist after 6mths of trying. I had been using ovulation test, temping and I was an addict with testing for ovulation and HPT a real shocka, always being disappointed. On Monday I took my referral letter and tests that I had done to the specialist and now I just had to wait my turn for an apt: a lot of money and a wait list. My husband had his semen checked I had just started getting all my tests done. That night I got my BFP this was 2 days ago at 11DPO, it was negative in the morning and + at night. The only symptoms I had was a gurgling lower tummy which always happened 2 days before my AF anyway. My AF was due that day and felt like for sure it was coming I even saw one pin size dot of blood. I had + ovulation tests from days 17-22 blazing, I thought I ovulated around day 17 as I felt O twinges we had sex days 8,12,14,16,17,19,20 I was so sure I was out this month and was so surprised. I was always on the forums and seeking all these BFP and was getting so depressed and down. I was not uptight but I always trying to calculate the best timing so when people tell you to just relax, go ahead and slap them. lol Do what ever makes you comfortable. I just got a call prior to writing my story with my blood results. I AM HAVING ANOTHER BUBBA YIPEEEE.

It's Surreal

Last night and this morning, I got my BFP. It was our third cycle trying after coming off the BC Pill. My best friend just found out that she was pregnant, and I thought it would be so awesome to be pregnant at the same time with our first babies! DH and I ere at Walmart last night, buying new sheets (I had actually spotted a bit, because I have been due for my AF!). I said well, do you think I should get another test? He said sure. So, I got a two pack of the clear blue digital. I took one when we got home, because I had to pee anyway. I was standing in the bathroom, just waiting for the hour glass icon to stop blinking, and I started cleaning up the sink, throwing away the wrapper, etc. I glanced up, to basically confirm the 'not pregnant' and low and behold there was 'pregnant' instead. I said 'Um....what?' DH came into the bathroom, and said what? I said...I'm pregnant. He said not uh...he thought I was joking! Took another one this morning, and yep, another BFP. :)

BFP at 9DPO - NO SYMPTOMS

I like many people have been reading all of the bfp stories on here for the last 4 months of ttc and I found them very helpful! So I wanted to share my story and hope it helps someone reading! Background: - I stopped my birth control pill in April (had been on for over 10 years constantly) - My cycle went from 35days (April) 23days (May) 33days (June) so it was not regular since stopping bc - In total I got bfp on 4th cycle off birth control - We are both in our mid 20's What I did differently this month: - Vitex 1000 every morning - SMEP method (BD - CD 6,8,10,12,13,14,15,16,20) - Started OPK CD10. Got clear positive CD14 - Stopped working out intensly - just did walking everyday - no more running or weights etc... Symptoms: - Literally not one symptom - absolutely nothing!! - Yes a little cramping, and the odd night felt a little tired but absolutely nothing more noticeable then any other two week period of my life even when I was still on the pill (don't we all have nights that we are overly tired or a lil bloated!). Basically no symptoms that would in anyway stand out or that I could even now after bfp attribute confidently to being pregnant.

Didn't Feel Pregnant!!!

I will start off by saying Hello! This is our second month ttc. The first month I had every symptom in the book it seemed. Only to have AF show up. Big disappointment. I was so depressed, but decided to move on. The first month of ttc we used ovulation kits. The second month I decided it was a waste of money and I would just check my cervix, cm, and other signs my body would give. I started my period July 3rd and it ended around July 10th. I didn't start keeping track of anything until July 16th. So here it is: July 16th: Cm plenty during day. At night I checked my cervix and it was high and white/creamy cm and goober-like. Very stretch (sorry if tmi) July 17th: Cm is very fertile. More thin than last night and very stretchy and clear with some white mixed in. I assumed today was ovulation day. (until I read that ovulation usually happens the day after fertile cm disappears.) July 18th: When I woke abdominal area tender to touch. Like it is swollen, and breast tender on sides about the size of a pea. I woke up to more fertile cm. I was afraid I already missed ovulation :( I was so upset so had hubby rush and at least try around noon. Well he barely got off. :( I was heart broken for one that we may have missed ovulation and for two not enough sperm being present! After we tried my cm went down to nothing. I lost hope. I figured I was already out this month. At 1:30 we tried again cm wasn't present besides small amount. July 19th: Throughout the day my chest was sore to touch. I would say moderate. Cm only wet feeling when checking cervix. Cervix feels high and closed. Feel bloated and abdominal area still sore when touched. Still seems swollen. July 20th: Cm is creamy and don't stretch. Some in underwear. I feel very moist when checking cervix. Cervix still high. Tender chest. 9:38pm cervix lowered and feels closed. Some cm lotion-like a little stretchy. Ovulation already happened. Confirmed by cervix lowering and fertile cm nonexistent. Chest tender and feeling bloated tenderness almost gone in abdominal area. July 21st: The only thing I noticed today was lots of cm in underwear. Creamy. Tender breasts. July 22nd: I think cervix is low, very soft, and lots of tacky some stretchy cm. 1:41pm Tender breast but not bad. No other pains. Starting to break out. 7:52pm Very depressed 11:42pm cervix hard, closed, and medium low. Not as much cm. It is tacky. July 23rd: Cervix low and hard like a ball. Closed tight. I checked cervix at 12:34pm. Cm creamy, and a small amount in underwear. Breast still tender but not as bad as last month. July 24th: 5dpo? I don't feel pregnant at all. Hopes are not high. I have a sore chest. Cervix low/medium hard. Small amount of cm. I have been really depressed past few days. 8 days until my expected period. July 25th: Cm making me feel wet. When checking cervix it is in same spot as yesterday. When checking with my middle finger the tip of my finger meets the middle of my cervix. Cervix is hard. Cheetos smelled like fish? Feeling like I might be queasy. It might be me being weird or over analyzing. Chest somewhat tender. July 26th:chest very tender at night. I felt fine all day besides being moody. Today is my wedding anniversary. Wasn't feeling it. Small breakouts. Hubby got his one pimple he gets every month before I get my period. 6 days before expected period. Cervix is still in the same spot but feels different? Maybe tilted? A little squishy on lower part? Blue veins on breasts (was those already there?) I don't feel pregnant, but I'm really hoping I am :/ cm is same as yesterday. July 27th: Geez this 2ww is torture. This is all I think about is baby. Maybe that is what is depressing me? Chest slightly tender, cervix and cm the same. July 28th: 9dpo Slightly tender chest, cm slight, and 8:27pm cervix a hair higher and softish. Was a little nauseous earlier after eating icecream. Maybe I ate too much? 4 more days until my expected period. July 29th: Cm creamy very little amount. Some in underwear. Cervix still mid-high and semi-soft. Kinda nauseous. It is 10:39am. A little bloated. Slightly swollen chest and more hungry. Slight cramping on lower right side. Almost a faint throb. Geez her I am another month wondering if I'm pregnant. At times I feel like maybe I could be, but I thought that last month too. I have been dizzy at times and nauseous here and there. Nipples look darker. Cramping gone. breaking out more. Not as baad as normal but still. That happens right before expected period. I'm irritable, tried, and really no cm. I only have three more days until expected period. I have no choice but to wonder if I am and we got the timing right. Not wanting to get my hopes up. I feel so lost in wonder. Everytime I smoke I get queasy :( cervix after bath is soft/squishy and almost can tell it exists.

BFP After 13 Months!

I am excited to share, I enjoyed reading these while we were trying, and I am glad to be able to add my story! We had our first child in June of 2011 and we started trying when he was a year old. After a year of trying we decided to get some help and started getting tested. Two days ago we had out consultation with the fertility doc and all of our numbers looked good, so he scheduled a sonohystogram to see if the c-section caused any damage. Two days later a BFP! My symptoms: 1-5dpo: Not much of anything 6-7 dpo: Left nipple very sore, a bit nauseated. 8 dpo: Nipple pain is gone, dip in temperature (not below coverline) Feeling pretty normal. 9-13 dpo: I noticed I was congested, when I wasn't congested I was smelling weird stuff and I pretty much convinced myself I wasn't pregnant. A little bit of nausea on and off. I took a test at 6:00 in the morning. It looked negative so I went back to bed. At 8:00 I dug it out of the trash and there was a clear pink line! I thought it was probably just a evap line since it had been a few hours. I decided to take a digital test to confirm or rule out pregnancy so I wouldn't obsess. I assumed it would be negative, but after less than a minute it was a BFP! Totally surprised! We had been trying for a while and I just had a feeling that this month was the month :) We are thanking God for this precious gift! Good luck to all of you ladies out there! I hope you get your BFP ASAP!

Mommy2B? and Her BFP ;)

We’ve all been there. The dreaded TWW. Many women are/were there more times than they would like to admit and it’s always the same thing each cycle: The excitement starts to build with each day you tick off the calendar as you near O-day and you wait with bated breath with every OPK—begging your TTC girls to help you decipher if it is positive yet… or at least darker than yesterday... maybe… please?!?! Then it’s here! You get your smiley or the two matching lines and it’s GO TIME!!! The BDing starts. Your DH, especially if he is not in the loop, wonders what has gotten into you, but he does not DARE question it as he LOVES the increase in your libido. ☺ At this point you are on a TCC high… you’re hopeful, excited, and enthusiastic. You are able to stay that way for a while. You get your crosshairs on your chart and O is confirmed!!! Hooray!!! You check and double check your BD schedule… and then sometimes you check it once more just to make sure you didn’t miss something the first two, alright seven… times you looked at it. It’s usually around this point that your mood begins the downward spiral because you DON’T FEEL ANY DIFFERENT… or maybe you do… or maybe you’re over thinking it… or under thinking it… or just need to relax… or stop counting… ??? It’s this part of the cycle that you get the TWW blues and begin to wonder if you’re timing really worked. You usually post to your TTC girls that you “think this cycle is a bust” or “AF is just around the corner” or you’re “just not feeling it this time around.” And, the good friends that they are, assure you that “you’re not out until AF shows” and strangely, even though you know that and have heard it before, it helps keep your spirits up just enough to go back and take a second look at that pee stick or dig yesterdays out of the trash (even though you’re only 7, 8, 9, 10 DPO and the likely hood of seeing anything is outrageous!!!) and when that second line still hasn’t magically appeared your spirits are dashed ALL OVER AGAIN! ☹ Boo! But then… sometimes… that stupid test you took 5 minutes ago has a line!!! Holy cow!!? Was that there a minute ago??! No way… you held your breath as you watch the line cross over the window and were sure there was just the stupid, lonely control before you walked away. Your heart begins to race. Your hands start shaking and while you haven’t felt nauseous ever, you feel it now. You snap a picture and pray it shows up on camera. You text your friend (or post it on your boards) and pray that they can see it too. They do… or are they just saying that to be nice?! They tell you to buy a FRER and you look at it the dang thing again (safely tucked into your pocket where you can peek anytime you want to make sure you aren’t dreaming) and now you just aren’t sure. Maybe you’re going crazy. No, you ARE certainly crazy… but you get into your car anyway and drive to the drugstore and you buy the FRER’s and tell yourself that you are NOT going to touch them until tomorrow morning!!! It’s only 8:00pm but you want to go to bed NOW… it’s like Christmas Eve when you were a kid. The sooner you go to sleep the sooner Santa will come… but just like when you were 5 sleep does NOT come so easily. You wonder if that elusive second line will show up. You pray that it will but part of you still doubts and these thoughts chase the sandman away. Around 2:00am you have finally managed to doze after checking the TWW boards again for some sort of distraction and around 5:00am you wake up and desperately need to pee but really want to hold it in so it’s a good long hold for that expensive FRER that holds your sanity in it’s stupid window and pink line(s). 6:30- you’re about to wet the bed and can barely hold it long enough to get the wrapper open… you are dancing by the toilet and remember to grab a cup to catch your FMU sample just in case the test doesn’t work properly or the results are iffy and you decide to use a different type of test. You try desperately not to pee on your hand but the raging river of urine can not be tamed and now you have to wash your hands before you can dip the stupid stick. GRRR!!! You look at the sample… you pray again… and then you question yourself - it’s only 11 DPO… it could be negative. Can you handle that???? You pull the test away from the sample still dry and you bolster yourself with the “it’s still early” idea or the “well at least I will know and can move on to the next cycle” but deep down, either way, you just need to know so you re-read the directions for the 100th time, dip the stupid stick, and count to 5 very slowly. You watch as the line passes through the window like you have for each of the previous cycles in the past… and then, after the longest two minute wait you have ever experience, you see it. A real live second pink line. The bathroom starts to sway and you sit, stick in hand, on the toilet seat and stare. Holy Crap… I’m pregnant.

BFP After 20 Months of TTC With PCOS and Blocked Tubes

Praise be unto God for He has shown his faithfulness to me. I am 31, DH- 36 and a lovely 3 year old daughter. I started TTC in Oct 2011, I didn't think it would take long coz I conceived the first time on the first month of trying. After a year of trying and no positive HPT I went to see the Doctor who ran some tests and said I have PCOS she also ran the dye test and said my tubes where blocked and I was lucky to even have conceived the first time. They put me on a lot of drugs, clomid, metformin etc I got tired of them after 2 months and decided to stop. This cycle the things I did differently: Exercise 4 times a week, high intensity aerobics, started taking Pregnitude, OvaBoost, Vit B6, went on the Low GI diet and did the SMEP plan. Symptoms this cycle: 1-10dpo - No symptoms 11-19dpo - Sore boobs and tingly nipples and cramps which came on and off. This morning 20dpo I get my positive HpT Glory to God.
