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.

Keeping fingers crossed

Hi everyone, being trying to conceive for over two year, never got pregnant but was diagnosed with pituitary adenoma about a year and half ago. DH has a child from previous marriage and he's been the best support system I can every ask for. Now am hoping I get good feed backs from you guys from the pic I just posted. My question now is does anyone see a second line or is it just my eye cause I can't tell if am pregnant just by how am feeling because I don't av any symptoms other than swollen boobs and sore nipples and I also feel like am bloated and a burning feelings in my stomach. By the way, today is the 14day after I got a positive sign on the ovulation kit. So please can u guys look and tell me if u see a second line or is it my imagination. Baby dust to everyone and congratulations to those that av gotten their bfp. Thanks guys

BFP after 2.5 years!!! Clomid

Hi everyone, I've been trying for my second baby for 2.5 years. I was giving up hope, all my friends were getting pregnant but me. With my first I got pregnant the first month of trying so wasn't expecting such a long wait. I seeked help at 2 years- all tests were normal. We were put under unexplained infertility and was told to try IVF, the cost was £8000 but worth it so we found a clinic. My consultant offered 3 months of 50mg clomid- we tried this before IVF and it worked the first month!!! We used it with preseed. I am 9 weeks at the moment and very happy- no sickness this pregnancy just feel tired all the time.
I had some spotting last night so had a early scan done- everything is normal. I saw the heartbeat flickering!! Baby dust to everyone out there. Please try clomid if u haven't - it worked for us the first month. X

It happens when you least expect it to!

I have been reading through everyone's struggle to conceive and relating to just about all your stories....

Well here's mine...

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the past 2 years, first year I had my mirena removed and was told by my gynae that as a result from the mirena I had very thin walls which would make it very difficult to carry a child so we should have protected sex for at least 3 months. - Which we did -was weird considering we're married. I had heard that folic acid helps to thicken the lining of your uterus walls so I started taking them.
After 3 months we started for several months to no avail :( we were so disappointed went back to my gynae and her said all was fine with me have we considered having my hubby checked, he recommended a urologist. After doing his first S/A we found that his count was less than 1 mil I was devastated and as you can imagine so was my hubby. Was told to wait 3 months a he suggested my hubby take Staminagrow a vitamin. After 3 month we went back and his count was worse than the first S/A at this point I had lost all hope and got frustrated when the he told us to come back 3 months again. When we came back again his count was 0.5mil his testosterone levels were slightly low too. At this point the Urologist said that it looks like ICSI is our only option and it's best we look for a fertility specialist. I was in tears. My gynae gave me clomid even though I didn't have a problem with ovulation I took it in June X5 50mg the first 5 days of my period. Nothing happened, got my period like clock work at the end of July forgot to take the clomid the day I started took it only twice. Ended being admitted to hospital for chronic bronchitis. They were pumping me with steroids as my lungs had basically collapsed and different antibiotics I was there for 4 days - knew it was my ovulation week so told hubby we needed to BD LoL he was like where...lets just say I made a plan -desperate measures calls for drastic moves :) we felt like teenagers again.
Took all the meds that was prescribed to me just wanting to get better so we could continue TTC.
2 weeks later I was waiting for AF to arrive and nothing, not wanting to get too excited over nothing and sure didn't feel pregnant I am usually a 28-29 day cycle when we eventually got to 32 days I still didn't want to test in fear of the BFN I called my gynae and he told me to wait till I was 10 days late then call him to make an appointment, boobs were sore, lil bit of nausea, increase in appetite, insomina and terrible mood swings was snapping at everyone which is so unlike me.
On my 37th day I was seeing a ENT specialist and found out that they are going to have to operate on me and he asked if I was pregnant to which I replied not that I know of however I am late and he asked me how long is my cycle and so forth and he said he thinks I am pregnant however he cannot operate on me till we know. So called my gynae told him I needed to know he told me to do a blood test as it would be best considering the time frame with me and my Op.

Called him this morning and was told POSITIVE - I am officially pregnant!

So all I can say to all you ladies do ever loose hope - God knows best, His timing is always perfect.
From being told ICSI is our only option to conceiving naturally.

Baby Dust to all...

A hooray after 2 years!

My husband and I first tried getting pregnant July 2012, two years ago. I was 26 then (28 now) and our very first try we got pregnant (showed up 9dpo on FRER). Unfortunately it was a chemical pregnancy and a week later I miscarried. At the time I assumed it would be no problem getting pregnant again but month after month passed. We took blood and semen tests and everything was fine. I ovulate and we are healthy, active, and young. So for two years we tried Everything outside of medical assistance (vitex, chiropractor, took OPKs every month, checked basal temp, fertiliTea, had prenatals, no alcohol, dropped caffeine during tww, are organic, followed all the right steps). So now we are almost done getting our foster care license (which is still part of the plan regardless of this bfp!) and hubby says we should give Clomid a go for once. I'm hesitant on drugs (especially when I already ovulated) but gave in. First try: pregnant!! What a blessing for us!

This month what we did differently was trying Clomid and preseed (though I had tried preseed before) and honestly for the first time being distracted about it since I was so focused on foster stuff.

As for symptoms, Like others say on here it's true: I had way more "symptoms" on other no pregnant months. I'm now in my 6th week and still almost nada. But Here's the rundown:

1-8dpo: nothing abnormal. Boobs sore but they get that way every month. Perhaps a little moody but that was likely a combo of stress at work and the Clomid side effects
9dpo: watery cm... What? I shouldn't be having this so late. Take a test at noon and voila! A red line peeked on internet cheapie. Run to store and double check on FRER! Yay! Definite yes!
10-20dpo: biggest things are sore breasts and white cm. I've been sleeping more but can't be sure if it's just because I had the time last week to do so or not. I AM more hungry for sure but can't tell if it's my imagination. Definitely getting more acne (lame!)
Overall, my giveaway is the cm (and obvious lack of period)! Other than that it could all be imagination. I almost wish I had nauseau so I could really believe it! Also, props to Clomid! Had read all the research and was convinced it wouldn't help at all!

Praise God for this double blessing of foster care and bio babies!

BFP after PCOS and Fibroids and 2+ Years of Trying

My brand new baby is actually sleeping, I was too superstitious to post my story during pregnancy. I took comfort in reading other people's success stories and vowed I would post mine one day, so here it is! It was a long 2+ years of trying for my LO and I am so blessed that I can now call myself a Mama!

Here is the condensed version of my journey:

After coming off BCPs my periods were non-existent/ 50+ days. After 6 frustrating months I was dx'd with PCOS. My MD put me on 2000mg of Metformin and my cycles regulated to 31-32 days ( and I lost the extra 30 pounds I had been carrying). Still no BFP. At the one year mark I went in for an HSG and was diagnosed with fibroids. I had laparoscopic surgery to remove them, but my case was way too complicated. Talk about a crappy thing to wake up to after surgery. A month later I underwent an abdominal myomectomy (my MD threw in some bonus ovarian drilling while she was in there!). That was a big, tough surgery, but they removed over a 1/2 pound of fibroids that were preventing implantation and blocking my tubes. After I had three periods, I was able to start Clomid. 4 rounds of 50 mg and one IUI and I was still getting BFNs. I ovulated without a trigger, but apparently it was weak. On the 5th round I was bumped to 100mg and did an IUI and boom BFP! I couldn't believe my eyes!

Pregnancy symptoms before BFP:
Moody and really irritable (unusual for me)
Cramps ( thought AF was coming early, never got cramps until after she arrived)
Very tired
Slightly Nauseous (my hubby had a stomach bug and I was sure I had it too but nope it was my baby!)

It was a journey filled with lots of tears and lots of heartache. Physical and emotionally, I went through a lot but it was all worth it! The sound of my baby's first cry made all that I went through seem like a distant dream.

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!
