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 after 3 MC's & 18 months of TTC

I'm cautiously excited to be writing my BFP story here. I've stalked this page during many of my TWW's. I've even posted another BFP story here back in March 2014, but sadly that pregnancy ended in MC. Praying this little bean decides to stick around! DH & I (both 30) have been trying for 18 months.

Anyways...on to the good stuff! I faithfully do BBT & check OPK's every month, so I know for sure when I O'ed. I should also mention this was my 2nd round of Clomid 50mg (cd 4-8). We also used pre-seed every time we BD'ed (because I rarely have EWCM). This is how it went down:

CD 11 - bbt takes a HUGE dip. Not having any signs of O though. BD just in case.
CD 12 (O day)- bbt still low. Feeling some O pains, but no EWCM. Did not BD tonight (we decided to follow the "every other day" idea with BDing because every day was just too much!).
1 dpo- HUGE temp spike today. Immediately regret not BDing last night. BD tonight to be sure to catch the egg.
2-3dpo - temps staying up. BD just to be on the safe side.
4-6dpo - nothing unusual.
7dpo - lots of creamy CM. Keep thinking AF started early. Paranoid that my usual "pre-AF" spotting is going to start any day now.
8dpo - big temp spike today. Hmmm.
9-10dpo - temp stays up. FF now says my chart has a "triphasic" pattern. I've never had this before. This was the first time I had a feeling I was pregnant.
11dpo - feeling nauseous & having AF type cramps. Still lots of creamy CM. Not a drop of spotting. Likely the day of implantation. BFN on FRER with FMU. Feel "twinges" in uterus.
12dpo - BFN on FRER with FMU. Think *maybe* I see a super duper faint line, but only if I hold it up in the right light & at the right angle. Probably just my "line eyes" again. Feeling a bit dejected. Start thinking maybe I'm not pregnant after all. BBT is still triphasic. Uterus feels like it's "humming".
13dpo - Clear as day BFP on FRER with FMU!!! So excited, I ran into the bedroom to tell DH. He's happy & excited. Start my daily dose of progesterone 200mg orally today!
14-15dpo - lines getting darker on FRER. Tannish (light brown) spotting, but nothing like my previous MC's & no cramps. Just occasional "twinges" to the uterus. Hoping it's the baby nestling in there really well. I'm super excited, nervous & anxious all at the same time. Praying this is my miracle baby! EDD - May 2, 2015!!

Second Round of Clomid- BFP 10 DPO

Hi all, I have read this site many times over the last 10 months of TTC. This month I really did have a 'good feeling'. I made sure we had sex every day of my fertile window.

Ovulation day: Cycle day 19- Cramps, EWCM, Left pelvic pain
1 DPO - CM went to clear and liquidy, sore nipples- which I always get the day after O , (TMI) Diarrhea
2 DPO - CM still clear and liquidy, sore nipples
3 DPO - CM starting to chance to yellow and creamy, still have sore nipples
4 DPO - Nothing!
5 DPO - Cramps, Very tired, Get another cold (only had one 2 weeks ago!) terrible taste in my mouth, almost metallic but put it down to the cold
6 DPO - Cramps, left pelvic pain, VERY grumpy. Actually think I have PMS. Still a slight metallic taste, still have this cold/ store throat. shooting pains in lower stomach and what i can only describe as a 'niggly' pain.
7 DPO - Slight tender breasts on and off, this never happens so I start to get suspicious, left pelvic pain again, still feeling very sick with a cold
8 DPO - Symptoms kick in! Breasts still tender on and off but only slightly, VERY tired (fall asleep on the couch that night twice during my favourite programme- never happens!), headache, gas, nausea- I actually vomited after dinner, however thought that may be as I had been coughing a bit from my cold. CM Very creamy.
9 DPO - CM Still creamy and getting globs of it now. Tender breasts, very tired and left pelvic pain again.
10 DPO - Cramps, very tired. Decided on whim to test, 3rd morning urine, a clear positive on a FRER!! Absolutely shocked!!

Dont give up ladies! This month I really did relax, my first clomid cycle was the most stressful situation and I promised I wouldnt put myself through that, so my only option this cycle was to RELAX and HAVE SEX- LOTS!!

after 1.5 years it finally happened... thank you clomid!

I am shocked and so thrilled to be posting this. I've read so many BFP stories and was always so envious, and sure I would never be able to write my own one day. It was a very emotional journey for me and my husband. I referred to myself as "broken" and had very many low days. But that has all changed!

Background: I'm 28, husband is 30. I've been off BC for years, we never used protection, then 1.5 years ago we started really trying. I had failure after failure. My sadness was growing with each failure. Many anovulatory cycles, very irregular (sometimes 30 days, other times nearing 50 days; making pinpointing ovulation extremely difficult.) I went to my doctor, we did blood work and ultrasounds. She had me keep trying for a year before we took the next step with my husbands sperm analysis, HSG test, and then finally when everything checked out, she prescribed me clomid.

I did 2 cycles of 50mg (days 5-9) unmonitored, I did ovulate but no pregnancy.
On my third cycle 100mg, I was feeling so defeated because I was so sure clomid was going to help me. I ovulated CD18. My temp spike was 2 days after ovulation. On 12 days post ovulation I took a test in the evening (knowing it was just going to be negative) and a very slight line appeared. I was very skeptical but had my husband buy me a digital test. He thought I was seeing things. That night I had many dreams about a negative test, and my last dream it was positive. I awoke and took the clearblue digital and after a few minutes of waiting "Pregnant" popped up! I was in disbelief! I immediately woke up my husband to show him! It was an amazing moment.

I was totally elated. And in disbelief. And then the worrying about miscarriage had set in (a real downer on my celebratory state, miscarriage was something I never thought of because I was so sure I was incapable of getting pregnant). I am currently 5 weeks pregnant, with very little symptoms. I have my first ultrasound in 3 weeks. I am praying that this baby sticks. This journey has been so hard. I am so thankful, so very thankful. I hope this story helps someone. It will happen. Stay positive as best as you can. Best of luck to all.

My BFP Miracle - Thank God

I am 34 years old with 2 children 15 & 12. I had been trying for 12 years to get pregnant and nothing. In Oct of 2012 I found out I was pregnant after 2 test and they both were negative. My period was irregular so I seriously doubted I was pregnant. Jan 5, 2013 I had a miscarriage. I went into a deep depression because I wanted a baby. After a year of trying to find a doctor I found one April 2014. When I first went to her I explained to her everything and she wanted to run test. My doctor ran blood test and did a test on my tubes to make they were open. My tubes came back open but my blood test showed I had PCOS. All these years I didn't even know I PCOS and no other doctor took time to investigate. She put me on clomid and I started my round of 50mg July 5-9. I experienced bad hot flashes and lost of appetite on clomid. I had sex 12-22 as my doctor instructed. On the 22nd I started having sharp pains in my left side. I went to the ER and the wait was 2 hours so I left. I just wanted to lay down. I came home and took a pain pill. I laid in bed for a few days and still didn't feel good. On Jan 28 I went back to the ER and they told me I had a UTI. Now my breast was starting to hurt, my stomach and back was hurting and I just felt pregnant. I took a test and it came back negative. My period was due July 31st but it didn't show up. I started feeling sicker by the day and doctor was on vacation until August 5. I had no choice but to lay in bed until my appt. I researched stories after stories and they gave me hope. Today August 6 I went to doctor and explained my issues and the nurse did a test. She came back in and I got my BFP! My doctor did an ultrasound and everything looked great. I am sharing this story because I know as a woman we all want a BFP. Don't give up and know your body. I knew in my head I was pregnant for 2 weeks but I didn't want to sound crazy. Good luck ladies!

My BFP story!

A little background info - I have PCOS, a 7 year old, and we've been trying to conceive baby #2 on and off for seven years. We started using Clomid 18 months ago, then had to take a break so I could go on Birth Control pills for a few months to even out my hormones. This was my first cycle back on Clomid since coming off BC, which was Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo. I also take 1000 mg of Metformin daily.

1-3 DPO: awful cramps that had me in bed and whimpering. Most painful ovulation I've ever had. Jokingly said to DH, maybe I'm spitting out more than one egg.
4-7 DPO: EWCM. Did some googling and got very mixed answers about EWCM in the 2WW, but I am here to say it was a good sign for me!
7 DPO: Nipples very sore. (They are still sore to this day)
8 DPO: A little bit TMI, but, a long string of CM that had the consistency of EWCM but was white in color. This was when I really started suspecting.
9-14 DPO: Only symptom was sore nipples. Occasionally I would get a deep, throbbing pain in my breast tissue. I was very cautiously optimistic, but really had a "feeling" I was pregnant. Also, I take my temp every morning vaginally, and I started to notice that it felt like the tip of the thermometer was hitting a wall.
14 DPO: I was exhausted. Starting falling asleep at 2 in the afternoon. By 5:00 I was asleep in my chair. We had a busy week with my in-laws in town and my daughter's birthday party, so I chalked it up to that. Hubby insisted I take a test the next morning, but I was too scared to see another BFN.
15 DPO: My temp went way up again this morning! By now it should be going down and AF should be arriving. I decided to go ahead and test, and sure enough, BFP!!!! I could not believe it. Ran around the house crying. Had first Dr. appt that afternoon, and they confirmed my pregnancy. Digital test says pregnant, 2-3 weeks.

After 7 long years, we are finally pregnant again! I can't tell you how many times I wanted to give up and throw in the towel, but now I am so glad I didn't. Miracles do happen, they just take a little bit of time!

BFP ON CLOMID;)

I just got my first positive last night. It's my first month taking clomid. I lost my first baby on May 23 2014 at 38 weeks:(. Me and my husband have been trying ever since and our doctor said I could use clomid since I have pcos. I have been peeing on a stick for so long waiting for my positive and last night I got it. I took the test originally because I was going to start a new cycle of clomid and I knew my doctor would ask if I took a pregnancy test so I did and left te bathroom thinking it was going to be negative and I come back and it's positive! Woot;) I know it's early but I just need to say something to someone. I have been reading all these posts and they made me hopeful;) prayers for me please that it sticks;)

AT LAST A BFP!!!!

Like many other lucky ladies, I've stalked this website for the last 3 months... Literally. This was my last round of clomid and even though I was doing jump and jacks because I had every side effect under the sun, I was preparing myself for IUI or IVF (first round made me so sick it's no wonder we didn't get pregnant, second month I must have ovulated on my non-working side. Our doctor put me on it after seeing I have a completely blocked tube from two prior ectopics within 6 months of each other in 2012/2013.)

The good news:
I was ready to give up on this month. We were moving and I just figured this wasn't it... My husband told me not to lift during the move just in case and I guess it was a week after we were moved in I for some reason on 9dpo decided to take a hpt.

BD on CD 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14 then called it quits! (Scheduled bd isn't fun especially clomid bd, it's the worst)
3/4DPO gassy, cramps, nausea, dizzy, no appetite till 2pm
4/5 DPO full boobs, gassy, cramping/pinching (the day we started moving)
5/6 DPO BFN, white lotioney cm, cramps, tired around noon, cold chills, emotional/defensive, gassy
No symptoms again till 8/9 DPO which is when I think I implanted because I had severe cramping on the left side around 5pm (ironically the side I ovulated from)... BFN blood test, 13 progesterone
9/10 DPO the faintest BFP I've ever seen! Saw. The doctor and blood test confirmed 6.3 HCG. Cramping and tired.
10/11 DPO took another HPT and the line was darker as I have continued to test for the last 6 days which is where I am now. I had more blood work done on11/12 DPO which came back 44 hcg... Which means I'm more than doubling which also means my little jelly bean is growing and dividing and doing what it's supposed to. Praying that it continues :)

Good luck ladies! Have faith!

BFP Round 4 of Clomid, and Late O

Still in Shock. Got my BFP this morning! I know it is still very very early, but I had to post on here as soon as I could because the stories on this site have held me up for several months. Now I cant believe it is finally my turn.

Background: I am 24 and my husband is 27. I stopped taking BC pills in April 2013 because I knew it wouldnt be long before we wanted to start trying for a family and I knew it would take awhile for my body to adjust. I have had terrible periods my whole life (even on BC) and deep down I knew it wasn't going to be easy for me to get pregnant, and I was definitely right. From April 2013 to December 2013 I had one period. At that point we weren't actively trying, so I wasnt too upset but I became concerned. In February 2014 I went to my annual appt and told the Dr. my problems. He tested me for PCOS (which he said I did not have) and confirmed I was not ovulating for some reason. He suggested clomid to get me ovulating and said if that didnt work after 6 months we would do some additional testing. 50 mg - No O, 100 mg - No O, 150 mg - O (but BFN) and finally 150 mg - BFP!

Ill have to say this month I thought we were out because I did the OPKs CD 13-17 and had no positives. So the next week we went on vacation and after a week of relaxation I guess I was ready. I ovulated on CD 17 last month, but this month I didnt ovulate until some time between CD 26-29. Im not sure as I had stopped taking the OPKs and even stopped temping. The Monday after we returned I was back in my routine so I took my temp and it was higher. So the next day it was up to my post O temperature. I was glad to have finally ovulated (albeit a week late) but I didnt think this would be our month as we did not use Pre-Seed, cough syrup, timed intercourse, NOTHING. We literally DTD twice on vacation when the mood struck. The past couple of days I had started to feel like I was prego but because of my late ovulation and us DTD leisurely I did not let myself get excited, as I was sure there was no way. I took the test at 5:30 this morning after my husband left and boom! Below are the symptoms that I have documented.

CD 26-29 - Ovulation day was somewhere in there but Im thinking it had to be CD 28 or 29 because we didnt DTD until CD 28.
CD 30-CD 33 - no symptoms besides sore BBs, but that always happen post O for me so not a big deal
CD 34 - backache and crampy feeling.......this was weird for me because I usually dont get a backache until right before my period
CD35-36 - still having the backache and cramps, and temp drop this morning (Implantation dip??)
CD - 37 - so tired at work I can barely hold my eyes open. Came home and slept from 6 pm until the next morning (started wondering then because I NEVER take naps or sleep that much)
CD 38-39 - temp back up - started feeling the twinges in my stomach that I have heard people talk about. Still having the lower backache (I have never had a backache for this long, even when Im on my period its usually just 1-2 days)
CD 40 - BFP!!!!!! So excited I cant stand it. I expected to start my period on CD 42 so I tested 2 days early, but I used a digital test and it took like 10 seconds for it to pop up PREGNANT!

None of this would be possible for us without the grace of God. It truly was the week that I completely stopped thinking about it it happened, and I know it is so hard because I am such a control freak so I understand it is hard when people say "Just relax and it will happen." Trying to conceive is such a stressful process so its hard to let it go, but relaxing and focusing on each other can truly work. I hope everyone out there gets to experience this feeling. Asking for prayers for a healthy baby and a healthy mommmy!

19 Months TTC & 2nd IUI Success!

I'm 25, hubs is 32. After 8 months trying to get pregnant I jumped the gun to go the Fertility Dr. route and we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I never imagined I would be in that merciless cycle but I was and I came out the other side blessed. A total of 19 months, 6 cycles of clomid, 2 trigger shots, 2 IUIs and 6 BFF babies born, here I am.

First IUI was textbook, everything good but still, AF came just like scheduled on day 28.

2nd IUI started out miserable. I was going to go on my 6th and final cycle of Clomid. On day 5 I went for the baseline ultrasound and i had an 18mm cyst. My dr said I could continue on and so we did just for more bad news mixed with good. On my cd12 us we saw 5 follicles, all mature and all would be released with our trigger. But our lining was down from 7 to 6 and she wasn't quite sure if it was triple layered. She recommended we go ahead with this last cycle before moving to injectables. Much easier for her to say when we were looking at $400 for the wash and IUI. But, even though I kind of felt like I was making a bad decision we went ahead.

Trigger day 12
IUI day 14
BD day 15
I stopped temping, I didn't want to see my temperature drop again. I am assuming I ovulated on day 14 due to trigger and last cycle but I was really bloated until day 15. So I just wasn't sure.

NO SYMPTOMS. I repeat. Nothing. No fatigue. No nausea none of the "oh I am pregnant!"
14dpIUI Nothing....I woke up to cramps and maybe sore boobs...maybe...but I'm always prodding and pushing to see if they are sore so who really knows. A little bit of increased cloudy white CM.

15dpIUI...I'm a day late. I usually wake up to cramps then bleeding. Cramps were there so I popped a Midol and went back to bed...woke up to no cramps and no blood...I don't attribute this next piece AT ALL to pregnancy but we ate at a popular BBQ restaurant and I ordered my fave sandwich. By the end of the meal and the 5 minute drive home I was SO BLOATED and miserable. So much gas in my stomach. Hubs dropped me off at home to get me medicine and I threw up the entire meal. Felt fine afterwards. Less CM that day.

16dpIUI...I woke up to nothing. At all. My boobs were tender but again, nothing noticeable. So, I tested. I snuck out of bed, grabbed my bag of tests (Wondfo is spectacular but I had a ClearBlue and First Response in there too) Peed into a red solo cup and dipped the wondfo. I was determined not to waste the nice tests when all I had ever seen was blank tests...As I watched,I saw the control line and nothing else and I just started to cry. I looked away to compose myself to go back to bed and tell the hubs JK and as I looked back...a line. I didn't even know what to do because I had never seen it before. NEVER. So I ripped open the other tests and dipped those babies in. All three. ALL FREAKING THREE. I got out my box in the closet with the onesies I had hid from other "I know this is it!" months and cried.

I'm 5w3d today. Still peeing on sticks (wondfo, I'm telling you!) because I have to wait until 7 weeks for my first US. My boobs are TOTALLY sore and tender all the time but that's about it. No nausea, no fatigue nothing. I might regret saying this but I almost wish there was SOMETHING besides tender boobs.

Overall, we're so excited and so nervous. I just want to see the first US and hear the heartbeat and then I will really believe. Keep hope and stay positive. This month should just have never worked but the test I took 2 hours ago said it did!! I know that hope and positivity is like THE HARDEST THING TO DO EVER but keep the faith.

Bfp after no +opk!

I got my bfp on Monday and was totally not expecting it! I haven't been ovulating so this is my first month on clomid. I decided to use clear blue digital opk's with fmu (instructions clearly say this is okay) and preseed BD E/o day from days cd7-22. I had a day 15 follicle check and doctor said they looked great and should ovulate in next 24-48 hours. Never ended up getting a positive opk and I used them until the 20 pack ran out so I have been bummed thinking I never ovulated this month!

Fast forward to (what I'm assuming is 10dpo) and my DH and I bd and afterwards he asked 'did it hurt? I felt like I was hitting something- it just felt different' .... Odd- I didn't notice anything different!? So I took a hpt on cd11 with fmu and sure enough-BFP! I was shocked!!

Symptoms:
Dpo1-5 extreme bloating, sore nipples
Dpo 5-present(13dpo), still kinda bloated and also acne break out on my forehead which is very odd for me, urinating super frequently, dark nipples

Other than that- nothing really which is scaring me so I keep taking tests and waiting on my blood work! Hoping this sticks! :)
