BFP with Clomid

Good old Clomid. Many is the BFP story that references Clomid at least somewhere along the way. And here you'll find a whole mess of them in one place. If you're taking Clomid and looking for some inspiration, look no further. This page is for you.

And when you get your BFP while taking Clomid, we want to hear from you! Send me your symptoms through this contact form.

Clomid BFP 10dpo!! God is Good.

It has been a long time waiting to write this story. It's a crazy one, but bear with me and I'll get to the good stuff :)
DH is 36 I'm 32. We've been together for 9 years and married for 5. We've always NTNP. After getting married, we decided to begin "trying". After a year of "trying" I went to my OB/GYN and asked him for help. My cycles are very regular, so we had DH SA (great) and then there was me. HSG test = all clear. On to Clomid. Now, around this time, someone prayed over me and told me I'd have not one but TWO children. I dreamed of being very early in my pregnancy, almost to the point that noone believed me. A doctor was hooking me up to machines and then I woke up. First round of Clomid=BFP. Around 7.5 weeks, I started spotting. I went to get an ultrasound at 8 weeks, no heartbeat. It was my dream. I was heartbroken. I was upset and angry with God for taking this away. I needed some time to recooperate, so I took a long year off and did some soul searching. I prayed more than I've ever prayed and seeked God with my whole heart. During that year, my sister who is very prophetic, told me I would be pregnant at the age of 32. That was two years away!! I continued to have faith anyway. In October of 2014, I had another dream. I dreamed that I was early pregnant again, and that a blonde lady told me " I know how to fix this." Fast forward to 33 weeks pregnant and I woke up. I knew it was time for us to try again. So, I took my last prescription of Clomid in December. NOTHING. In May, I went back to my OB/GYN and he started me back on Clomid 50 mg for three cycles. NOTHING. I didn't understand. Why was this not working? I prayed for healing.
In September at my three month checkup, my OB/GYN decided not to move me up to 100 mg (for the fear of multiples because I technically ovulate on my own) and had me do three more cycles of 50 mg. And then he would move me up to 100mg if that didn't work. I was furious and so upset!!
That night, I prayed and I cried out to God, "When?? When will this happen Father, I can't wait anymore!" He replied, "February".
After lots of prayer, I decided to call a Fertility Clinic and seek more help. On the day of my first appointment, my insurance had issues and I had to cancel. So, I decided to continue the Clomid.
Now, I have some co-workers that were seeing this Homeopathic/Spiritual Healing Doctor. I was curious. After lots of prayer, I felt I had to go. Here's where my story REALLY gets interesting. As I sat down with Barry, he asked me what was on my mind. I replied "well, infertility". He asked me how old DH and I were, our names, and if I'd ever been pregnant and what had happened. I told him of my loss at 8 weeks. He stared off for what seemed like an eternity before he finally said "Ok, your husband has stomach parasites. We can fix that easily and really clean up his sperm." Then to me he says "Now, I'm going to tell you something that is very scary, but I don't want you to be scared because we can fix this, ok?" I said "Ok....?" He says "You have two bloodclots that are very close to your heart, probably had them for 10 plus years, like 17 or 18 years old. Did you have dental work or braces at that age?" My heart sunk...."Yes" I replied. "I had a root canal at 17". He says "That's when they formed. They're causing your body to work too hard, thus preventing pregnancy from sticking. You're also highly anemic." I was so stunned at this point. Not only had DH NOT even been there at all, but he had told me that something was wrong with his stomach? DH had a colonoscopy two years ago and they couldn't find anything wrong!! Anemia? I give blood and my iron is always borderline. The Red Cross also had just recently called to ask if I would donate platelets because my count was so HIGH! I was just blown away. He then says " Now get this done, I see twins". I'm like "Excuse Me??????"
So, I had two months of vitamins/herbs and iron (blackstrap molasses ewww) to get started on. After two weeks, I felt like a new person! I had energy, I could breathe better!
It gets better.......
My OB/GYN is a guy, and while I'm sitting at Barry's store, I get a text that said he would be on extended medical leave until mid January!
So, I wait until December (knowing that I'm supposed to get bumped up to 100 mg Clomid in January) and I ask what I'm supposed to do. The nurse calls me back and says "We're sticking you with Dr. so and so and they want you monitored, so day 21 progesterone test, day 28 ultrasound and then we will bump you to 100 mg."
No lie, I hung up the phone, googled this new Dr. and my jaw hit the floor. SHE was BLONDE. What are the odds? My dream is coming to pass!!!!!

BFP 3rd IUI - Donor Sperm

As most of us do I stalked this site the last 6 months looking for a glimmer of hope or a match to any of my symptoms during the 2ww praying for a positive pregnancy. This month on Jan 15th I finally got my BFP! Here is a little background on our situation:
I am 33, my husband is 37 and a diabetic who wears an insulin pump. We tried on our own for a couple years and finally this past June decided it wasn't working (and I wasn't getting any younger!) so we sought the help of a fertility specialist. After going through all the rounds of testing we got the news that my husband's SA came back with 14,000 sperm (yes 14K not 14million!) and of those there was only 8% motility. We were dead in the water, both physically and emotionally. Our fertility specialist informed us our only chances at a child would be IVF with my husband sperm OR IUI with donor sperm. At first he was adamantly against the idea of a donor so we opted for him to take Clomid to increase his counts. Two months passed and when it was time for him to do another SA he decided he didn't want to risk the chance of possibly passing on the diabetes, as his father and grandmother both had it as well. He didn't want to put our future child through the trauma of dealing with the disease that he feels robs him of so many luxuries in life, including carbs! It was an extremely selfless decision on his part and we worked through the scenario weekly with each other- some days talking, other days yelling and fighting, until we both came around to the idea. Once we were on the same page and as our last step we went to a counselor to gain the sign off needed to begin the process through our fertility doctor.
Finally we were back on track to having a child! After doing all the research we picked our donor and had our 1st IUI in October- (Femara cd 3-7) 2ww - BFN! November came and using the CB Digital opk we missed our ovulation, I was devastated, but we told ourselves we must have missed it for a reason. December -IUI #2 (Femara again cd 3-7)- This round I tracked all my symptoms. I had the cramping, nausea after day 10, fatigue, aching breasts, diarrhea, and bloating. I was positive during this 2ww that I was pregnant. Day 14 - BFN! Seriously?! Ugh! AF didn't start till Day 19, what a tease. (Btw the day we got our BFN we found out my Father in law needed a quadruple bypass and 3 days later my husband was hospitalized for an infection - we all spent the week of Christmas in the hospital, FUN!!)
Which brings us to Christmas Day(cd3), we were out of the hospital and went out of town. That evening we realized I had forgotten my Femara at home and would need to drive back the next morning so I could begin taking it a day late. At this point I just want 2015 to be over! (Femara cd 4-8), New Years Eve, yay a new year!! New Years Day- LH surge - IUI #3 scheduled for Jan 2nd (thank GOD this happened in 2016!) I decided this round I wasn't going to track anything and get my hopes up again. I did notice low back pain the night of Day 10 into Day 11 but with no spotting. I did my best to ignore it, which wasn't hard since by day 11/12 I was fully cramping and sure AF was coming in a couple days. No other symptoms AT ALL, no sore boobs, no bloating, no cm, and instead of feeling fatigued I felt like I was jittery when I would wake up. Day 13- My husband has left for work and sent me a text to ask if I had tested yet (I knew he had forgotten it was a day early and we shouldn't test until the following day, but at this point I just wanted to get it over with and have a glass of wine). I test with FMU expecting nothing and glance over as I'm flushing, what?!!? OMG I swear there is the faintest of faint lines...barely! I send the pic to my husband and he can't see it, he says to wait and we will test again tomorrow.... Tomorrow? That ship has sailed, I'm on my way to the store for a ClearBlue digi! Test with CB - BFN, I'm depressed, but still hopeful with my faint faint lined Early Response knockoff. I call the doc, admit I cheated a day early, and go for the blood test... Hcg- 17, Progesterone - 40. Yay I'm just barely pregnant on Day 13!! :D (btw I tested again with CB digital on Day 15 and still got BFN so I no longer trust CB since they failed me on OPK as well)
Here were my numbers:
Day 13- Hcg 17, Progesterone 40
Day 16- Hcg 203, Progesterone 43
Day 23- Hcg 2970, Progesterone 37

Still praying daily for a sticky baby! This site really helped keep me positive during those dreaded 2ww's. I thank everyone who contributes to this site and pray for all the women who read daily as I did, Baby Dust to ALL!!

Stop Stressing, relax, and just let it happen.

I had three kids at a young age 16, 17, 19. At 21 I got my tubes tied because it was clear that things were not going to work out between my kids father and I. I vowed that if I ever had kids again that my husband would love me enough to understand why I tied my tubes and we would untie them if he truly wanted kids. (It seemed so simple) Flash forward 6 years later I meet the man of my dreams and he has no kids. We get married, untie tubes and after a year of trying NOTHING! Super depressed we tried and finally we stop trying and BOOM I was pregnant. One week later we miscarried. So with the hope and assurance that the surgery worked we tried again and nothing for another year and half. In October 2015 I started clomid. The first cycle failed. I was so livid on the next cycle I was like "F THIS! I don't want to try, I don't care anymore." I stopped researching every symptom. Wishing every pregnant women was me. Hoping that I was next. Jealous of my friends for being pregnant with ease. While I was stuck here trying for yet another year paying for infertility meds. I completely rejected the idea that I would even be pregnant. I would say 'NO SORE BOOBS NO PREGNANCY" So much so I didn't even test before it was time to see my doctor. I didn't realize how addicted I was to researching every symptom in every forum. It was actually depressing me. Not caring if I was or not was much less stressful. When I suppose to go get my meds for the third cycle of Clomid they made me take a test. She told me it was negative. While waiting for the my paper work the nurse calls the Dr. and she says "IT'S POSITIVE!!!" (I told them Dr.'s aren't suppose to lie to their patients. It's rude." lol) Blood test confirmed! I used Preeseed, Mucinex, Clomid and Estradol. On the last cycle and while BDing DH would tell me to just relax. I guessed it worked.

1-16 DPO NO SYMPTOMS, NOTHING AT ALL!

Don't be discourage if you don't have any symptoms. I would swear I had every symptom there was and every time it was Negative. I was a POASA. I would squint at every PT thinking there was a line. There never was.

I'm 5 weeks and 3 days now and I have sore boobs and I'm so incredibly hungry all the time.

Good Luck! Prayer works! Gory be to God he knew when the right time was.

bfp after 22 months

I thought i would share my bfp story as i enjoyed reading them whilst i was ttc.
We were ttc for 22 months, i tried lots of things from the start - different positions, bd at certain totm, bd every day/storing it up. I took agnus castus, epo, co enzymes, multi vits. All different types of lube, ph testing, soft cups, eating different foods- you name it id tried it! (except temping) I'd been through all the NHS testing and i had taken Clomid for 3 months but stopped because it hurt when i ovulated. I'd been to the ivf seminar in the hospital but i was reluctant to start it.
It was my birthday in the february and i decided i was getting drunk, and thats what i did! I drank lots of wine and had an amazing night - we bd that night for fun and i wasn't even thinking about ttc.
I'd totally written off that month and forgot all about it.
Previously i'd always tested the day before af was due but those who have been tic a while know that the dreaded feeling of a negative is awful so i didn't even bother. Since ttc my cycles had started to be painful and irregular so af being 4 days late was not unusual. I'd had no symptoms at all except i remember a sharp pain one day when i coughed in the morning but i just thought it was af pains early. So 4 days after af was due i tested using an ovulation stick and i came back as if i was ovulating and i knew i wasn't so i bought a proper test and i was very happy to see a bpf!
So, i wanted to tell you what i thought had helped me.
That month I'd had 2 sessions of reflexology - simply to relax not for fertility reasons. I had been using Balance Activ fertility spray that helps with your Ph. It was 3 months after i'd stopped taking the Clomid but it would have still been in my system. But - most significantly i was relaxed! I know its cliche ladies and i was sick of everyone saying it to me but IT IS TRUE!!! I now have a beautiful baby boy. I wish i had known that ttc for so long is normal and lots of people are trying they just don't tell you! You think its just you and there is something wrong, but there isn't!
Good luck ladies, and don't forget to post your story too. xxxxx

BFP just in time for Christmas!

Hello ladies! I have been ttc baby #2 for 5 cycles and would stalk this site throughout them all to see if there were any symptoms I was experiencing that was similar to someone with a BFP. It's only right now that I have my BFP to share my symptoms for anyone else who may be looking to compare symptoms just as I was :) I am 32 and was diagnosed with PCOS with my first child. My doctor put me on 50 mg Clomid and I also took 500 mg of Metformin twice a day. Here were my symptoms:

1-4 DPO- Nothing really noticeable.
5 DPO- Irritable and very fatigued.
6 DPO- Irritable.. like even more short tempered (poor hubby) tired, and starting to experience some headaches throughout the day.
7 DPO - Still irritable, very tired - I am normally not a sleeper throughout the day but I am now barely making it through my work day without feeling like I need several naps. I am having to take naps on my breaks and lunches..headache. No tender boobs and I thought that was weird as with my other cycles I experienced tender boobs by 6 DPO and knew AF was coming.
8 DPO - Exhausted! While sitting at my desk at work I became very dizzy. This definitely has never happened to me with my other cycles! I did not want to stand up from fear of losing my balance because I was just that dizzy. Still experiencing some headaches, and some back twinges but not really painful. Still no tenderness in boobs! Weirdest symptom of all on this day was that all of a sudden I had globs of EWCM!! I only have experienced EWCM during my fertile week, normally on the days just before and day of ovulation so I was extremely confused!
9 DPO- Still experiencing globs of EWCM. No tender/sore boobs yet. Extremely fatigued and still experiencing some dizziness. Some shooting back pains but again, not really painful.
10 DPO- No longer experiencing EWCM. CM is now creamy consistency but there is more than I normally have around this time. Still tired and having some back twinges on and off all day. HUNGRY! Nothing I ate ever made me feel full. I always needed something else to eat on.
11 DPO- Finally starting to feel some tenderness in boobs, just on the sides. Tired, headache throughout the day. Still HUNGRY! AF has not shown up, so I decided to test in the morning if there is still no AF by the time I wake up.
12 DPO- Ofcourse I had a horrible night of sleep! Insomnia in full effect or it could be that my mind was racing just thinking about testing! I finally could no longer take it so at 2:30 am I tested using FRER and got a freakin BFP!!! I freaked out and could not believe my eyes!! Ofcourse, I tested again and again and again this time with some dollar store cheapies I had and all were BFP's too!!

I am now 6 weeks, 5 days pregnant and my symptoms have pretty much stayed the same. We shared the news with my family for Christmas and this was the best present I could have gotten! A few things I did not mention in my DPO's is that I did temp everyday and my basal temp stayed high but I know that the temps can vary from person to person so my high could be lower than someone else's. My temps would run from 98.25-98.45 with a temp dip on 8 DPO in which it was 97.98. It rose the next morning to 98.30 so I took it as that is when implantation was occurring and why I experienced the EWCM. I also checked my CP on and off throughout the whole process. By 9 DPO, my CP was very very high/closed/soft. I used OPK's and I did buy Pre-Seed because I read so many good stories about it but I don't think the Pre-Seed helped me conceive. I used it as directed with my last 4 cycles inserting it internally and nothing happened. For my 5th cycle, I only used it twice and this time I used very little externally and I conceived. Hopefully this all helps someone as much as some of the other posts helped me during my cycles. BABY DUST TO ALL!! :)

BFP first Clomid cycle after miscarriage

I had a missed miscarriage and D&E at 7w3d on September 5th. I do not ovulate regularly but I do not have PCOS, so my dr is really not sure why. I have taken 4 rounds of Clomid so far and conceived twice. I only had one cycle after my MMC (not counting the bleeding that resulted from the procedure), which was induced by Provera, but I had 3 months to recover, so my dr said to start trying again. LMP began Nov 22. I ovulated Dec 6 and, of course, my husband was on duty that day so we must have conceived from sex the night before ovulation.

The only symptoms I noticed were 2 days of AF-like cramping on 6 and 7 dpo and a lower back ache on 8dpo. I also was immediately hungry all the time from right after ovulation. I experienced insomnia very early on as well, before my BFP, which I never knew was a pregnancy symptom until last time I got pregnant. This time my boobs hurt way more than they did last time and I've already gone up a bra size by 4w6d. I got a very, very faint positive on a Wondfo at lunch time about 10 dpo but I ignored it because it was so, so faint. Just to be sure, I took a couple more with FMU on 11 dpo. It was still so faint, and I thought one even came up negative. The next time I tested, a faint but obviously positive line came up, and I was so scared. I called my doctor because I knew he wanted to put me on progesterone gel right away. Of course, my husband was on duty the day I found out I was pregnant as well! The next morning he came home to a very obviously positive FRER with a Christmas bow on it. I got my official BFP that really made me believe I was pregnant on 13 and 14 dpo, which was much later than last time. Merry Early Christmas to us! I am very nervous, but have already seen my doctor, have had 3 beta HCG tests done, of which I will know the results on Monday, and I've been scheduled for an ultrasound on January 5th at 6w2d. I can't wait to see what's in there! Hopefully this will be our sticky little rainbow baby.

Oh, and we used Preseed internally both times I got pregnant. I swear by it! It works for me!

I hope this helps someone to have hope of achieving pregnancy after miscarriage. I am pregnant again less than 4 months after my miscarriage!

BFP Baby#2 and IUI #2

I always said that as soon as I got my BFP, I would post here. Just in case there is even one person out there that could benefit from my story, as i have benefited from all of yours so much. So, here it goes- we have been ttc baby #2 for a year now. It took us 2 years and 2 miscarriages to have DD, but we were able to get pregnant with her with no fertility treatments. Anyway, fast forward to now and she is 18 months and perfect. We knew that we wanted more children and decided to start trying when she was 6 months old due to our age(I'm 32 and DD is 35) and the troubles that we had the first go around. It took us 6 months to get pregnant and I finally got a BFP back in July, only to find that the pregnancy tests kept getting lighter until finally AF arrived. We were devastated to say the least, and immediately got the ball rolling on fertility testing and next steps. Being proactive was the only thing that kept us sane. There were a few things that came back from our testing, the biggest was that I have an overactive thyroid which my RE says could have been causing the miscarriages...he says that my thyroid could have seen the baby implanting as a foreign object to my body and rejecting it. He prescribed me a low dose steroid in case this was the issue. I should also mention that DH has no issues...his count and motility have always been great.

After trying for another couple of months naturally, we decided our next step was clomid and IUI. We decided that we would give it 3 months then move on to IVF as a last resort. Our first IUI, we both had so much hope. We truly thought it was going to work. Partly because it was the first time, and partly because our numbers were so great...I had 2 mature follicles, and 2 medium sized ones. Hubby's count post wash was 94 million with 86% motility! We really thought we nailed it, only to get a BFN in November.

Now for IUI #2- everything was a mess. I thought that I had ovulated prior to the trigger shot, as I got a very strong positive on an OPK. My follicle check only showed one at 17 and another at 13. My lining was at 5.6 from the clomid and I read that it was next to impossible to have successful implantation with anything under 7-8. My RE assured me that we still had 2 days for the follicles and lining to increase. We nearly cancelled the IUI because I thought that I already ovulated, and I wasn't convinced that my numbers were strong enough. We figured, what the heck..we're already so far along in the process. Let's just do it, so we did. Hubby's counts were strong again, 76 million and 86% motility.

Even though my RE told me not to test early, I did of course :) I started testing at 9dpiui and saw a very faint line. I thought it could be the trigger so I tried not to get excited. Then I tested the next day and the next, the lines kept getting darker. The Clearblue digital also came back at "pregnant 1-2". We confirmed with a blood test at 13dpiui and here are my betas-

Beta 13dpiui- 118, progesterone at 16
Beta 16dpiui- 800, progesterone at 11.6(RE immediately put me on supplements twice a day)
Beta 20dpiui- 2799, progesterone at 20.6

It's still so early, that I won't feel completely comfortable until I hear a heartbeat. We're scheduled for our first ultrasound Thursday. I'll just be trying to calm my nerves until then!

I do want to mention a few things that I did differently this cycle- drank pomegranate juice as soon as I heard that my lining dipped(not sure if it helped, but I thought-why not?), prenatal and baby aspirin every day. Hubby and I bd'd on CD8, 10, 14(day after IUI), and 15. I truly believe that I ovulated early and bd'ing on CD8 or 10 is what did it for us. We never do it that early(usually start on day 11 or 2 to give it the best swimmers..lol). I took the advice on my RE and did it on those days and I believe that is why I got my BFP.

Lastly, symptoms before my BFP were slim but I did get a sore throat and stuffy nose somewhere around 5-7dpiui. I also remember wiping and seeing a twinge on brown 6dpiui. Must have been implantation bleeding. Also, frequent urination- I notice it mostly at night. Previously, I would get up once during the night but lately it's been 3 times or more. Other than that, not much to report.

Ladies, I know that it seems hopeless sometimes, but persistence is what got us here. I love being a mom so much and I would have continued trying for years if I knew I would eventually be staring at 2 pink lines. Don't lose hope, and just know that you aren't alone. Fingers crossed that you all get your BFP's soon :)

Bfp after two years of ttc!

Hello lovely ladies! I've been following everyone's stories since we started ttc two years ago. Finally my turn has come to share my good news. Well I am 33 years and hubby is 36. I get my menses regularly and my average cycle is 26 days.I even feel ovulation pain so I know when I ovulate. So it was really disappointing when af arrived each month.
After 6 months of ttc, we went to gynaec and had all tests done. No problem with any of us. Gynaec prescribed clomid 50 mg days 2-6 for 3 cycles. Still nothing. I switched gynaec and this one told me to get hsg done. Everything was clear and I even managed to fall pregnant that same cycle. Unfortunately I miscarried at 6 weeks. We were devastated but we didn't give up. We started ttc soon after that. The second cycle after the miscarriage I went to another lady gynaec who prescribed who prescribed clomid 50 mg days 2 - 6 with proper monitoring on specific days. We found that the follicle was not growing accordingly so I took gonal f injections on day 7, 9 and 10 followed by ovitrelle injection on day 12. I was then told to take utrogestan 100 mg tablets two times a day for 14 days starting fromm 1 dpo. Unfortunately that cycle also was a bust.
The next cycle we did the same except that I didn't need to do gonal f injections as one follicle was already 17 mm on day 7! Ovitrelle injection was done on day 10. That cycle we bd day 9 and 11. Hubby was too tired to bd on days 12 and 13. So I thought here goes another cycle as I wasn't sure we'd managed to catch the egg. Still I started taking utrogestan tablets 200 mg after ovulation.soon after I started having really thick white discharge everyday which freaked me! However this was also one of the first hints that I may get a bfp this month. Secondly I did not get headaches as I usually do before af.so I tested on 16 dpo and was so happy to get my bfp. Just hoping and praying that this one sticks.
Good luck to all of you ttc and just be patient.God wil definitely hear your prayers!

BFP - 2nd IUI - Vasectomy Reversal

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to FINALLY be able to share my BFP story! My husband and I have been TTC for about 2 years now. DH had a vasectomy reversal right after we got married, July 2013. The surgery was a success and 6 months after his surgery we began actively trying. After about a year we decided to seek medical help. In April 2015, we started Clomid. After 2 months with my regular OB I was frustrated and decided to see a specialist in June, 2015. We were set to do IUI in July but I had 9 follicles and they canceled the IUI. August was out because of residual cysts. We had our first IUI in September. DH's sperm count was extremely low, 2 million, (he was taking antibiotics and we were told it shouldn't matter...IT DOES) and I only had two follicles. That IUI resulted in a BFN. Our second IUI was October 19th. I had 5 follicles and his sperm count was better 38 million!

TWW SYMPTOMS
I tried my hardest not to symptom spot as I normally do. I did not take my temperature daily, I tried not to think about anything! Around 5 DPIUI I felt some light cramping that lasted a couple of hours. 7DPIUI I was eating lunch and had very strong cramping that I had to move around to try to get relief, that never came. Those cramps lasted for about 30 minutes. It was very strong. I felt wetness but never really the familiar feel of AF getting ready to come. My Cervical Mucus was very prominent, very white and thick. That was unusual for me. I also took my temperature a few days in the second part of TWW and noticed it was very high. I started temping daily at 12DPIUI when my temp usually starts dropping if AF comes and it still remained high. I took a test on Sunday (13dpiui) and it was negative. I didn't want to test because I hate POAS and seeing BFN, but DH was going out of town and he wanted to be there. I was discouraged but did not cry as much as I usually do, I had faith because my temps were still high.

I did not test the next day exactly two weeks after the procedure, I just figured I would wait for AF. Nothing came! The next morning I said oh forget it, let's get it over with. I looked at the control line and saw it popped up and started crying with joy, then I quickly laughed at myself when I realized I was only looking at the control line. I brushed my teeth and looked again and there was the most precious sight ever a +! Then I cried for real. I was alone and had to call my hubby! It was amazing. I left to go to school and picked up another test on the way and took it in the bathroom in my First Grade classroom. Two pink line immediately showed up. :)

I went to the clinic the next day for my Beta it was 147 and two days later it was 496. Yesterday I had my first ultrasound at 7 weeks and saw my little baby and heard the heartbeat. I have not felt a single thing yet. Just a bit tired sometimes and my breasts are very sore and getting bigger daily it seems. I am so happy. I am so relieved. I am so thankful.

Never give up. God is able to do anything. TTC is a long road, it is hard, it is tough, it is sad, it is lonely but it builds character and strength. When it finally happens it makes it all worth while! I am still praying for a healthy pregnancy throughout but now and forever all the praise and glory is to God for answering my prayer!

Good luck and God Bless!

BFP! 17 months later!

I can't believe I am writing this!

My husband and I have been trying since we got married last June (2014). Every month was a bust. We went in at the year mark and had all the testing done- both of us were fine. Two months later, I had an HSG done- looked great. Finally she put me on Clomid even though I ovulate on my own- 1st Round 50mg Days 4-8 Beautiful BFP!!!!!! Not even FMU!

I'm still shaking. My husband is stuck in traffic and I am going to explode!

I thought I was out for sure (again) because I'm so crampy. Temp plummeted at 13dpo WAY below cover line. Went up to 98.4 this morning and I thought that was weird (97.06 day before).
I've been a little sick (cold, sore throat) the last week.

Only side effect of Clomid was hot flashes at night. Otherwise it wasn't bad.

ZERO SYMPTOMS. Seriously. Besides my cold (all my students have colds) I feel fine. Like I said, thought AF was on her way. So maybe my cramping was a sign but I always cramp right before my period.

I'm feeling excited, nervous, scared.....I've been ready for this for a long time.

Thanks for reading! Baby dust to all that have been trying for much longer than us!
