Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

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.

Bfp 14dpo imolantation bleeding, clomid/iui

I'm so excited to finally write my bfp story!!! we tried for a little over a year. After 7 months I went to a fertility clinic, they found I had low progesterone, and a slightly sluggish thyroid. I tried with herbs, fertilitea, fertil aid, had cycles with no coffee or drinking - nothing... After over a year then started trying clomid with an injectable and iui - our second IUI round finally worked!!! I gave up nothing during that 2ww and had quit acupuncture haha. If this hadn't worked I was prepared to have laparoscopy surgery to see if I had stage 1/2 endometriosis.

This cycle definitely tricked me because I spot EVERY SINGLE MONTH since coming off birth control, and it's always different - sometimes just brown spotting on 10dpo, other months red blood at 9dpo...and I learned to always associate it my period coming. Here's my symptoms...

Cd 13: iui
1-10 dpo no symptoms that stand out
11dpo: felt dizzy, like i had a sinus headache all day so I stayed home from work and laid around all day... But still no spotting! But I've spotted later before

12dpo: felt normal aside from a little cramping. Was getting hopeful since my temp went up a little bit...later that night I got a little bit of light pink spotting and I was pretty upset...went to see a movie, came home and I had bright red blood, it was fairly heavy, enough to keep dripping in the toilet (sorry if tmi). So i figured my period came early - was so sad.

13dpo: brown spotting, which has also been normal for me after red bleeding in the past, and my temp dropped to just above my coverline which was right on schedule. Went to a baby shower which was really hard!!!

That night I started feeling warm, when I took my night temp it was way high, and that usually isn't the case. Went to bed hopeful.

14dpo: woke up expecting my temp to have dropped and for period to start - but my temp went up!!! I called to schedule a blood test, they called that afternoon to say it came back POSITIVE - BFP!!!

I'm still 4 weeks now, feeling really warm all the time, some headaches and minor cramping and breast soreness, but nothing major.

I still can't believe my body tricked me! Absolutely nothing was different from other cycles, I'm so glad I was temping bc that was my only clue. This past year has definitely been an emotional struggle and I never knew it would be so hard to get pregnant, and how hard it would be to deal with all my friends getting pregnant. So I feel for anyone that has trouble conceiving!
My advice is to get tested before waiting a full year of trying! I'm glad I did, because you might as well know early if you have low progesterone or some other issue that can be worked with... And take your temperature! :)

I'm so happy we finally got pregnant and i pray for a healthy 9 months!

BFP with PCOS

Here's a bit of backstory. I'm 24 with PCOS. He is 27 with what he calls "super sperm" (lol). We've been "not preventing" for 3 years, but actively trying for 6 months. I've been on Metformin for 4 months and this was my third cycle on Clomid. I took ovulation tests every day after Clomid until my ovulation was confirmed. We BD'd pretty much every other day throughout my cycle, and both days that I got positive OT. I should have taken note of when my O days were, but I wasn't charting or anything, which is why I'm using CD instead of DPO. Because of my PCOS, I'm not sure exactly how long my cycles are, and I waited until CD35 (today) to POAS.
Anyway, these are my symptoms. Not in any type of organized format or anything.
-On CD26, I had some light pink spotting, which usually signals the very first day of my AF and then turns immediately into my regular flow by the next day. Only spotted for the one day.
-Abdominal cramping/pulling/twitching started the next day and hasn't stopped.
-Sore & full BBs from CD27 on.
-Peeing a million times a day.
-Mostly constipated
-Really bad diarrhea on CD33, followed by more constipation.
-Fatigue, fatigue, fatigue with random bursts of energy.
-Frequent headaches.
-Shortness of breath all the time. Stairs are my worst enemy right now.
-Lower back pain.
-Mild heartburn.
-Metallic taste in mouth on CD31.
-Sex dreams!
-Most of my symptoms went away (except for sore BBs and some slight cramping) at CD34
I woke up early today on CD35 and bought a 2-pack of regular ClearBlue tests ($2 off!!!) because I was dying to know. POAS and got an immediate BFP. The test line came up before the control line lol. Hoping for a super sticky bean!!

Let's try this again....

Hello I am new to this site. I am 31 and married and have been TCC since August 2012. 3 failed iui. I have not been responding to injectable horomones. I am now starting metformin and on a strict diet and exercise. It's been a tough road. I am going to try IVF however I need to respond to the medications! All the shots have been intramuscular hoping that would help but no such luck. Need some support feeling pretty down. Thanks all!

23 Months TTC with clomid!

I am so so so glad its finally my turn to post on this site! I have stalked this page for over a year hoping one day I would get my chance to post my BFP!
Jennifer,27 (almost 28)
TTC 23 months
My backstory:
Since AF made its appearance back when I was 13, I have always felt that I would have an issue getting pregnant. Though my entire life, I have NEVER been regular. My stress level and periods always were hand in hand with each other. When I would become upset about anything, my period would be delayed…for months…sometimes even years. I didn’t have a single cycle while my mom was battling breast cancer. When I was 23 I asked my regular MD if I had an issue…and he told me it was normal to be abnormal! WHAT?! I actually BELIEVED that!?!
I never had a horrible AF when it actually came….slight cramping…that was it.
I married my high school sweetheart when I was 24, we then decided to wait a year to start trying to a baby.
Luckily at this point….my mom was better, I was stress free, and my cycles were 100% normal!
November 2012 rolled around and we were ready! And then lovely AF came…again, and again, and again!! We BD for the next 7th months just expecting it to happen, and it never did. I then started the wondolf LH strips to see if I O’ed. Some months it surged, others it did not. We continued this until January of 2014.
I scheduled an appointment with my normal OB…and because of SNOW…I had it rescheduled 4 or 5 times. We were not seen until march. From Jan-March my periods were off again. My father was ill and it played a toll on my lady parts….GO figure!
TTC Story:
March 2014: OB put me on provera to start AF. Period started 16 days later, took 50mg clomid days 3-7, progestrogen at day 21 was less than 1. I did not ovulate.
May 2014: OB put me on provera to start AF. Period started 16 days later, took 100mg clomid days 3-7, progestrogen at day 21 was less than 1. I did not ovulate.
July 2014: AF came naturally, 32 day cycle, 150mg clomid day 3-7, progestrogen was 17.8!!! I finally O’ed, BFN
Aug 2014, AF came naturally, 32 day cycle, 150mg clomid day 3-7, did not take 21 day test but showed surge on LH strips. BFN
Sept 2014: OB referred me to the reproduction specialist. My DH and I were tested. His swimmers were good, I did NOT have PCOS, my levels were good. I took 150mg clomid 3-7, and had a HSG test on cd11.
The test SUCKED! It was far from pleasant, but I found out that my tubes were wide open.
This kind of put me at ease….I knew there wasn’t anything really wrong with me. I had also ready that the HSG test can make you fertile so I was hopeful.
I tested my LH levels EVERY DAY and never showed a surge so I was convinced I didn’t O. I did notice THICK white CM in my panties for about a week before my period….random short cramps. Nothing major.
CD 32 came around and BFN. I cried. A lot. I was ready to give up….but my RS couldn’t get me in until the end of the month…they prescribed me provera to start my cycle again but told me to hold off taking it until 10/16/2014. I continued to test daily…CD34 I swore I saw a faint line. I didn’t say anything to anyone, not even the DH. The next morning, it was slightly darker….was I really pregnant?? Finally CD 35 I looked down and saw a still faint but definite line….I ran to walgreens and got a digital….longest 3 minutes of my life…BFP! WAHOOOO! I cried, and cried, and cried.
I am 5+ weeks…early but confident. I have an appointment at the end of the month!!!

We also used soft cups and preseed! Forgot to mention that!!

I can’t wait for my summer baby!

bfp with clomid

i got my first bfp on first round of clomid 50mg i didnt ovulate on my own dont lose hope

Products used: 

first round of clomid worked!

I just had my positive hpt this morning and I'm over the moon! After about 6 months with no period after coming off the pill, i knew something was up so scheduled an appointment with an RE. Turns out what I'd been expecting for years - PCOS. my RE wasn't very supportive and actually told me on my first visit "you'll be a challenge". I was heartbroken.
I tried one round of Clomid and here I am, 4 weeks pregnant!!!!

Never lose hope and always stay positive girls! It can happen!!!

BFP 3 years 3 IUIs told needed IVF

I am cautiously writing this message! I got my BFP Sept 27. Cd 27 3 days early of FRER. We have been trying since early 2012 have done 9 rounds of clomid had a MC in June 2013 and 3 IUIs in 2014 unsuccessful. We were told due to my anovulatory cycles and DH low morphology and border line count that we needed IVF with ICSI we did not have the money for that! So we said we would try 3 more IUIs. But my DH started a new job and couldn't take time off so I just took clomid!!! The only reason I tested was because I was so hungry couldn't stop eating and that is not like me.
We are cautious as we have had a loss. But my betas are rising nicely.
14dpo 254
16dpo 770
Won't be doing a 3rd too stressful to wait for results haha. I am on progrsterone supplements and we have our first US in Oct 23.
Keep positive thoughts and keep on trying!

bfp cycle #2 clomid and metformin (pcos)

Hey ladies, I have stalked this site for a long time and wanted to share my story.

Little background - 29yrs old, suffer with pcos and don't ovulate naturally. Dd who is now 3 was conceived with FSH injections after 3yrs of trying so we were apprehensive about trying for baby number 2.

After coming off be and not having any periods I decided to pull myself together and lost 12lbs. Then went to see the doctor who suggested trying clomid and metformin (was resistant to clomid when trying for dd but thought what the hell)

1st cycle, 26 days long and very painful heavy af.

2nd cycle, 28 days in was having loads of pain and no af, ultrasound showed a cyst on left ovary but also ovulation imminent. Went home to dh and dtd lots over the next few days! Two weeks later I was convinced af was going to show due to bad cramping and no other real symptoms, maybe sore bbs but normal af stuff.

Was going for a drink that evening so decided to use one of the many tests I had stashed! Second line came up before control line - shocked did not cover it!

I am now 9w 2d and a scan at 7 weeks showed all was going well. Lots of sickness, sore boobs and still cramping on and off!

I read on here once that ladies believed clomid doesn't work for pcos so I wanted to share that it can!

Love and baby dust to you all xx

Miracle

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I knew something was going on, because morning sickness hit me strong and early. I was also spotting very lightly. I called my Dr and he ordered a hcg quant as well as progesterone. I went in for my blood work and felt a little off. That night I went to bed and early the next morning started bleeding. Went to the ER concerned that I was having an ectopic. Ultra sound showed no signs of ectopic and of course no baby for it was too early. Went home and the cramping and bleeding started and it was heavier than a period. I knew that I was no longer pregnant so the Dr ordered another quant to make sure they were decreasing. I was extremely sad and felt like I had to stay positive. The bleeding lasted 5 to 6 days. My quant in the ER was very low, lower than a digital pg test will read. I did have a positive one. I knew it was over. I worked on recovery and started playing Hockey again. I was feeling good again and was planning to try again. In the meantime I never heard back from the doctor. I finally called yesterday and got a little annoyed because they didn't get the results. To my surprise my quant had gone up, so they did another quant it was up even more. Dr said he is pretty sure I am pregnant with a viable pregnancy. I told him that I will believe it when I see an us and a heart beat. I have an appointment on Tuesday! I am hopeful, but cautious! Now I am starting with the morning sickness!

Odd symptoms this time BFP

I wanted to share my symptoms for others because they were very significant and totally different than my previous two pregnancies.

Had no issues conceiving one and two. #3 took 9 months and I was in my fourth round of Clomid and did a trigger shot. It worked! I also used preseed.

Symptoms:
5 to 6 dpo I had a feeling I was pregnant, like a suspicion or gut feeling. I also felt bloated and had abdominal cramping.
Extreme acid reflux and heartburn 7 dpo plus fatigue
Pain and extreme bloating mixed with a little brownish discharge 8 dpo.
9 to 14 dpo this stuff subsided a bit and then I started thinking maybe I'm not pregnant. I did feel extra hungry and vaginal discharge continued.

And that is that. No painful breasts like I had before and I have almost never had heartburn in my life till this pregnancy.

Hope this helps someone.

Also I got faint lines on dollar store tests at 11 days, faint ept test 12 days. 13 and 14 pretty solid lines on both types of tests.

God bless!!!
