BFP After one cycle of Clomid.

Hi, I think I owe everyone on this website my BFP story... I have been lurking at zillion BFP stories here for almost a year now.

Hubby and I started trying to have a baby in March'15. After two monts of trying with no success ( we thought getting pregnant was so easy sigh! ), I went to OBYGN to make sure everything was Ok. Doc told us that I have a retro cervix meaning in order to get pregnant, we have to doggy style when baby dancing for hubby's sperms to reach faster directly to my cervix. We did that every month until August cycle when we found We were pregnant!! But unfortunately the pregnancy ended the following month at 9 weeks. Doc confirmed it was a spontanous abortion. I had some spotting one day and it continued to heavy bleeding just like period. I had a D&C in Sept 25th, 2015. I finally had my period 37 days later on Oct 29th. And another period in December 5th - 37 days later. I went to OBGYN who confirmed that I had not ovulated post DC considered the 37 day cycle. So he prescribed clomid to help me ovulate, which I did. While Hubby was sent to the lab to get his sperms checked. He confirmed I had 2 almost mature eggs ( one was bigger than the other one ), so we BD'ed 3 times that month - every other day.

Meanwhile we also found out that hubby sperms result did not come out good. He only has 2 % morphology though normal counts. So at this point we were only betting at the 2 percent. looking at the result, our OBGYN recommended us IUI to speed up the pregnancy, but we told him we would think about it. Basically he confirmed with the sperm result, we needed to have IVF or IUI. So we were planning to do IVF in May 16 while fixing our lifestyle.

Since November we also tried to alter our lifestyle. We work out a lot, cut down on carbs, eat more protein, fruits and drank lots of juice. Our mindset was just trying to do our best and let God do the rest.

And surprisingly : BFP! It was really shocking. We kept staring at the stick and thought we were both being delusional. It still seems surreal even now.

So below is the detail of my TWW symptoms:

DPO 1: pulling sensation in my abdomen, ovulation like pain. Thought it could be the clomid's side effect.
DPO 2: the pain continued and spreaded to my back, so I thought we didn't want to miss the opportunity so we BD'ed again. This was Christmas day.
DPO 3:I woke up sneezing and I thought I caught a cold. My body felt warm.
DPO 4: Same as DPO 3
DPO 5: back hurt, weird twinges in my lower abdomen ( esp. In the middle part). I had this kind of pain last month when I didnt ovulate so I thought this was just my body gearing up for period
DPO 6: Back pain, slight cramps on the right side of abdomen ( AF style pain ) and white creamy CM. They said clomid do all kinds of crazy stuff. So sigh...
DPO 7 : I felt fine!!! Boobs hurt but only a little - they were heavy but aside of that, nothing. White creamy cm continued but less.
DPO 8 : same as DPO 7
DPO 9 : I had more CM, white sticky and watery CM ( I never had CM between OV and period/pregnancy, so this was new )
DPO 10: cramps on the left and rightside of abdomen and CM continued.
DPO 11: cramps more intense, I swam on this day and I could feel it more in the water. Back pain and sticky CM, craving for something sour and spicy. I felt so tired during the night and went into a deep sleep.
DPO 12: I ran for a little bit, thought the back pain was more intense and needed to fixed with a little exercise. After I ran, felt so tired and took two naps. Boobs hurt much and sticky CM
DPO 13 : Woke up at 4:30 AM, had a sudden thought to POAS. Used a cheapie stick and came out really faint. I went back to bed and woke up to check it again at 8 AM - it was darker. I was not convinced. The whole day cramps were more intense mostly on the left sife of abdomen and spread to my back. At this time, I didnt tell hubby abt the whole POAS thing.
DPO 14 : POAS in the morning, BFP - faint line but more apparant. Called hubby to go into the bathroom and he confirmed it was BFP!!!
DPO 15: Blaring BFP at 8:45 PM.

We are cautiously very happy... hoping this one sticks!! We don't know what the future holds for us... We are just hoping for a healthy and full-term pregnancy this time around.

Products used: 

2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9 at 9dpo

2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9, BFP at 9 dpo.

This is my 2nd time being able to post my bfp on this site. The first time around we had been ttc for 4 years, and this was 2 years ago. I ended up pg on first round of clomid, but sadly ended up miscarrying at 11 weeks. That time around I didn't have any symptoms or signs that I was pregnant at all! This time around is VERY different!

I got a positive opk on cd 14 and know I ovulated on cd 15 due to the fun ovulation cramping that clomid induces. We used preseed each time we bd and are able to bd 13,14,15 and 16.

1dpo-5dpo: Nothing.
6dpo: Cramping, just like af! Tender bbs and had that 'let down' feeling in them.
7dpo: Right sided tight pinching feeling, near ovaries. Very tender bbs.
8dpo: Zingy feeling in bbs that radiated to my armpits. Very sharp stab feeling through to my vajayjay..very odd feeling! Constipated.
9dpo: Having to pee ALOT, like every 15 minutes. Tender bbs. Tight cramping right side. Let down feeling again. Faint positive at 530 pm
10dpo: Very positive on Frer! Still sore bbs. Crampy like af is going to show any moment! Very very hungry!!

I am praying this little one sticks!! It's been 6 years now that we have been trying for our last baby and this is the final try, I can't go through another loss. So, any prayers our way would be appreciated. Good luck ladies and I pray you all get your bfp soon! Xoxo

BFP with Clomid

I am so excited to finally be able to share my story here. Like many women, I've come to this site for strength and advice during the TTC journey. First, a little back story. My husband and I have been trying to have a wee one for about four years now. This past Dec I finally decided to go on Clomid cycle days 5-9. The first cycle I did not ovulate and I received my BFP this cycle, my second round. I did things a lot differently this cycle such as I took my Clomid pill at the same time every day. I never really knew it made a difference but I spoke with the Nurse Practitioner and she said it was very important! I was instructed to have sex everyother day cycle days 10-23 and I did but this time I used Preseed and the Softcup after we were finished BD'ing. I let the little swimmers sit for about 10-15 mins before I inserted the cup. On the days my hubby wasn't feeling it I just gave him a mr handy and put the swimmers in the cup with preseed and inserted it. I also had a lot of different symptoms these time indicating I could be pregnant. First right away I had the sore nipples that radiated out to my breast and I've had AF type cramps but no period (a week late I am) and I have had a ton of at first thick white discharge that has turned to a yellowish greenish color. I have not noticed to much of a morning sickness yet and I hope it stays that way! I feel so blessed right now! If any of you ladies have questions please please ask! Best of luck to you all and lots of sticky baby dust!!

5th round of clomid

My husband and I had been ttc for 10 months since having paragaurd IUD removed. This month was the first month I really thought was a bust. We were on vacation, not a relaxing one either, and I had a mishap with a soft cup on the day I knew I was ovulating. This was our first month using soft cups and I was a bit nervous about doing it right, but I really do believe that these and some preseed were very helpful, and I would recommend them to any lady who is ttc.
I can totally relate when ladies say they had more symptoms on their BFN months, I had it all, nausea, sore boobs, mood swings, bloating, crying hysterically. Then I read these symptoms can all be side effects of climid. But this month nothing really made the lightbulb come on. I even decided we would take six month off and started planning a really great summer around 8 dpo because I was positive I was not pregnant.

So here are my symptoms though they weren't much:

cd 15-high fertility on CB ovulation test bd'd with pressed and soft cups

cd 16-travelling from 2am till 12 but make time to bd with SoftCups and Preseed. Feel disheartened that I can't lay down for long after.

cd 17- ovulation day, great day at disney world, and had a few too many drinks that night, bd'd with SoftCups and Preseed

1dpo-10dpo-nothing really, felt tired but I thought it was just from traveling. Felt very defeated/depressed because I thought I was out again. The only thing that i noticed was different was that I usually had cm in my undies at this point till af, but nothing there. Also around 9dpo till now have had bm's 2 or three times a day.

11dpo- notice i can't find the opening of my cervix when checking cp. Found it pointing all the way toward tailbone, never felt it like this before, also felt slimy mid height and hard. still feeling sad but no other symptoms.

12-dpo awoke up early and tested. walked away knowing it was negative, went back to look and saw a faint second line! tested again later that night and line is darker! no cm in undies, very tired that night in bed at 8

13-dpo- tested on CB digital and the word pregnant came up immediately! no cm in undies,hunger pains, irritable and very tired in bed at 8

14dpo- still not many symptoms, tired, irritable ( bitchy is a better word) and hungry more than usual, no cm in undies

I think I have the normal fears that af will show up, but I'm trying to stay positive and just repeat to myself that my body is ready for this. Hopefully it will help and I hope that I helped someone else. Its a dark and lonely place when your ttc for awhile, no one quite understands how it feels unless they've been through it. Try not to let it take over your life, talk to someone who gets it if you can, and focus your energy on something else.

BFP 13DPO..... clomid

Well hello everybody today i got my bfp this morning after tryin for over 4 years, start clomid 2 round got a bfp then it end up being a ectopic, that was in oct/nov now my 2nd round of clomid with a bfp hoping baby made it to the right spot this time doc app on the 17..... me and hubby r so happy, but dont want to tell my family until i know for sure the bean stick. lol

IUI success

I promised Myself I would come back and post when I got my BFP - we had an IUI due to unknown issues and during procedure found my cervix was tilted which I am thinking was part of issues getting Prego/ the swimmers had a bigger challenge than most. We used clomid and then a trigger shot.

I had ZERO symptoms. I say this bc month after month I would symptom spot and was always disappointed. I did not have EWCM this month, in fact I had a tiny amount of discharge daily after procedure which I assumed was from meds- just barely enough to notice it. I didn't have sore boobs, I wasn't crazy emotional- I didn't feel sick; maybe just a little tired but I was also busy so I didn't think anything of it.

So here is to hoping for a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby

For all of us TTC who have been told "just relax!"

This post is dedicated to all of us who have wanted to punch someone in the face when they told us to "just relax" and we would get pregnant.

I literally had everything go wrong, had a super stressful month, and got my BFP.

My hubby and I have been trying since 2011. That's five long years if you are counting at home. Two years of trying (my hubby travels a lot for work, we gave it extra time), an unexplained infertility diagnosis, two more years of "not trying" and "just relaxing" and three medicated IUI's. Our first IUI resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I was so traumatized that I waited a year before trying one again. Our second IUI I got massages, took things easy, went to see a Chiropractor, and did yoga daily. BFN.

This last month on the day I was supposed to go into my RE's for my day three ultrasound I felt like I had been runover by a truck. Was this allergies or a cold? MY RE told me to come in anyway. I live in Central Texas and have been braving a bout of Cedar Fever (think a Cold that lasts for several weeks until Cedar Pollen levels go down). I lost my voice, had fatigue, coughing, phlegm, you name it. To make things better, in 11 years of being a real estate agent, I had my busiest January EVER. I was working 7 days a week, handling lots of clients, and FLIPPING STRESSED. Between the work, fertility drugs, and cedar fever alone I became very unpleasant for my hubby to be around.

THEN, my husband gets a call about an entire work project being shutdown. This results in him leaving his job and starting a new business just about a year ahead of schedule and one week before our IUI. I'm covering as much as I can with my job, I feel like crap, and now the breadwinner of our family has just started a brand new business. Awesome. We were so busy and I was just trying to SURVIVE. I didn't even have much time to worry about our fertility treatment this month. I was the girl in her RE's office working on my laptop before my appointment. After our IUI, I ate lunch and was back to work with meeting clients immediately. I didn't really have a choice.

I was on Clomid, Gonal-F, and had a trigger shot. This was the first time we used a fresh sample for hubby and his counts were lower than they had been in the past. I don't remember motility, but his counts were about 13 million. I had two follicles mature and a small one that was a maybe.

I had no symptoms that were different from my normal cycle until last week. With our chemical pregnancy I noticed a few days before our BFP, I would wake up every night between 1-3 AM. I started doing this again. However, when I get stressed and busy with my job I tend not to sleep very well. I wasn't sure if I wasn't sleeping due to stress or hormones. I also noticed no spotting. I typically can spot anywhere from 3-7 days before my period starts. Even when I had my chemical. To this day (15DPIUI) I have had no spotting whatsoever, except for right after our IUI. I did have some cramping on and off during the 2WW which isn't abnormal for me. Part of the problem with being on fertility drugs is that you don't know what is the drugs and what are early pregnancy symptoms. I finally broke down and tested 12DPIUI because my boobs were hurting more than normal (but they normally are full and achy at this point in my cycle). To my surprise, it was a BFP. I had my betas today and it came back at 156. We go back for more blood tests on Wednesday to see if numbers are rising. I'm cautiously optimistic. We've never gotten this far before!!

So yeah, you can be stressed as hell and still get a BFP.
