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.

Iui #2 BFP!!!

After having unexplained infertility for 18 months, we finally got our BFP tonight! I'm 3 days late, so I decided to test. No symptoms besides vivid dreams, nausea, and mild mood swings. We did iui #2 with 100 mg of clomid for an extra boost. Just pray. I honestly didnt know if this would happen for me! (Btw, that top test was my opk)

BFPx3 , Is this real ??

So I was put on femara cycle days 6-10. I went in for follicle monitoring on cycle day 14, the doctor determined I had 1 very large follicle and I would ovulate the next day (based off transvaginal ultrasound). She had me take a 250mg shot of Ovidrel. And scheduled IUI for the next day. On the way home (2hrs away) she called and said my bloodwork came back and my LH was 103, and that my surge was happening right then. Therefore, she canceled the IUI and encouraged us to BD (timed intercourse). Anywho, I started testing the Ovidrel the same day with cheapies to see when it left my system. The test was positive for a few days and then negative for a few more. I decided to test yesterday afternoon (9dpo) with a FRER and got a faint but very visible second line . I tested this morning (10dpo) and again got the same thing , I tested again when I got home and the same thing. Is it possible that I am indeed pregnant or could it still be the Ovidrel ????

Symptoms so far :

0-3dpo - Nothing

4dpo- couldn't finish a bag of popcorn because my tummy was upset.

5dpo- Gas

6-8dpo- Nothing

9dpo- BFP , ate wayyy more food then usual.

10dpo- BFPx2 , ate wayyy more food then usual and was still starving afterwards.

***Also, I've noticed myself burping a lot lately and I never burp. I've had some "weird" pinching and short sharp pains in my uterus. Found a streak of blood in my panties. Ovaries have continued to hurt since Oday.

If I am pregnant this would be my first baby.

BFP after 18 mos TTC/MC; Help from Femara!

We finally got our BFP at 13dpo! We feel truly blessed and thank God. We are saying lots of prayers that this one sticks!

Back story:
I am 29 and DH is 30. I stopped taking bc in April of 2013. We weren’t trying by any means but we were okay with getting pregnant too. No period in May, June, July… Finally called my OB and she prescribed Provera to induce periods in hopes of inducing ovulation. Took provera August, Sept, Nov, Dec, Jan… Still not getting a period on my own and not ovulating. At this point we were scared because we don’t even have a shot. Went to OB in Jan. and decided to try a few more months but start taking Clomid in April if needed. It was needed because I still wasn’t getting periods on my own.

Got pregnant after 4 cycles of Clomid! We found out in Sept. 2014 and sadly miscarried at 7 weeks in October. We were devastated and I wasn’t sure I could cope emotionally.
As time passed, I started to feel better. We decided to start trying again in Nov. 2014 but were now seeing an RE. He prescribed Femara (similiar to Clomid, but less side effects and higher preganancy rates)

Took femara and actively ttc for 4 cycles and got our BFP on cycle 4! 4 must be a lucky number for us! We are overjoyed and feel so happy to have another shot.

I was a hot mess for a while and I decided this month that I was going to mellow out and just let nature take its course. I felt calm and very positive from CD1. I did not stress over symptoms and did not read stuff on the internet like a maniac. We also said lots of prayers and asked others for their prayers too. I really think that made the difference this month.

1-10DPO: Nothing. I was not looking for anything and nothing was too noticeable.
11DPO: Felt some cramping. Thought AF was maybe on her way.
12DPO: Cramping, nipples tingly, couldn’t sleep, lower back pain, peeing a lot
13DPO: BFP on First Response and Clear Blue! :)

I am saying prayers for everyone out there still trying. It will happen for you no matter how down you feel. This is such a tough time and you never imagine that it will be this hard. I know how it feels to see so many others around you getting pregnant just wish it was you and wonder why it’s not you. You must keep the faith and stay mellow. It will happen! <3

BFP on second round of clomid!

Yay! Finally a BFP after a year of trying for baby #2 with secondary infertility due to PCOS. This was our second round of clomid (100mg) with a trigger shot (10000iu). I haven't had many symptoms, but here are the few I've noticed:

1-6dpo: nothing
7dpo-present: crazy tired! napping like there's no tomorrow!
11dpo: stabbing pain in left breast
11dpo-13dpo: cramps and twinges around ovary area
13dpo: BFP on digital (says 1-2 weeks) and on FRER!
14dpo: Darker BFP on FRER and beta came back at 74!

Also, a few things we did differently this cycle:

1) We BD'd 5 days in a row! 2 days before trigger, day before trigger, day of trigger, and the 2 days after trigger.
2) We used Preseed 3 of those 5 times.

I can't believe we'll be having a baby this October!! :)

AF Cramps, BFP, and IUI

I have been stalking this site since October 2014. We have been trying to conceive or at least ntnp from until August 2014. We went to see a RE in October 2014 and started clomid day 5-7, trigger on CD12, and timed intercourse which did not work. We didn't do medicated cycles for the next two months because u/s day fell on holidays. Background: I am 36 DH is 33, both our tests were on the high/low end of normal so close to abnormal I guess.

We decided to do IUI in January 2015. CD1 was January 8th and I started Clomid CD3-7. I was told to use OPK on CD11 which came out positive. I responded well to clomid given that I ovulate on my own anyhow. I went in for U/S and had two 17 mm follies on the right side. I was told trigger the same day at 3 p.m. and come in for IUI the following day. We collected the sample at home and it was rough. DH was under pressure and did not like the thought of IUI anyhow because he deemed it "unnatural." I rush to the lab with the collection in hand. Post wash, 1.5 million motile little guys. Yes, 1.5 million (WTF!). And I hadn't ovulated but they did the IUI anyway around 10: 45 a.m. and I also had to come back the following day for a second one. Fantastic! I get to do this all over again, but this time I have to go straight to work. I cramped all day and I felt like my ovary was on fire or swollen. It was not pleasant but not really painful.

So the next day, collection at home was much easier. Once again I rush to the office, and this time 6.4 motile guys and this time I the two follies were gone so I ovulated, but then a third 17 mm follie was in the process of ovulating. First of all, my RE said during our first visit they won't move forward with more than two follies so I was pretty freaked out when I learned there were three. Anyhow, I had second IUI done at about 8:30 a.m. I felt cramps and burning sensation in my ovary all day. I started vaginal progesterone suppositories twice a day that night and continued to practice yoga, but not until two days later.

DPO 1-4: Cramps and aches in the ovaries all from the progesterone I assumed.
DPO 5: Spotting if you can call it that it was like one thin like of dark blood (obviously I jumped to the conclusion that it was implantation bleeding) however, it was more likely that it was from the vaginal suppositories
DPO 6: Cramps and aches in the ovaries all from the progesterone I assumed.
DPO 7: The "implantation bleeding" (lol) necessitated POAS BFN, I knew it was too soon but what the hell
DPO 8: another BFN, obviously irrational testing given the time line
DPO 9: Not going to test, not going to test, cramps in toes, not going to test, bloating, not going to test, feel myself up, no soreness, not going to test, am I spotting again? Crap AF is coming because I always spot a few days before AF
DPO 10: Fine I am going to test, BFN
DPO 11: Arghh this blows another BFN, this didn't work AF is coming, AF cramps as per the usual
DPO 12: AF cramps still, exactly like AF cramps and bright green CM (WTF?) Google search, fantastic I have a bacterial infection from checking my CP, which by the way I could never figure out whether it was high, low, open, closed, soft, firm
DPO 13: AF show up already! Sore bbs, but like AF symptom, I hate my life, its never going to happen, I can't go through this again. I guess I will skip yoga and drink margaritas during happy hour tomorrow after my b/w
DPO 14: Stupid lab, stupid clinic, someone call me so I can go drink my margaritas on the rock, stupid AF cramps, 5:11 "We received your test results and you're pregnant HCG 95"
Me: Wait! What?
Nurse: You're pregnant
Me: I'm sorry
Nurse: Is this a problem?
Me: lol no, I have had AF cramps for the last week.

I will say this and I feel terrible saying this, when I saw people on this site saying it isn't over until AF shows I may or may not have rolled my eyes in the back of head. I am really sorry about feeling that way. I literally felt and still feel like AF is about to start. I mean for me, the cramping was exactly the same as AF cramps I mean exactly. I don't mean to give anyone false hope, but I thought I was out. I thought I was going to get bad news which required me to partake in a few delicious margaritas. Obviously I did without the margaritas. Hang in their ladies! Hope this helps!

BFP After Three Years Wait

After having my now 5 year old son, we waited two years, then tried for three. I did monthly ovulation testing,and we were really trying, but each month was a let down. Last fall I told my doctor I wanted to take the next step. She had me do some over-the-counter yam, Vitex, multis, etc. after 3 months of that she referred me to an RE.
Our first cycle was quite a whirlwind of meds, appointments - it all happened so quickly after that first appointment. Clomid (gave us four good follicules), Fallopian Tube Test(clear) , bloodwork, trigger shot, then IUI. Whew!
Cut to now: 13 DPIUI with some strong positives over the last few days!! Celebrating getting this far and putting my faith in this new beginning.

God Can Do ALL Things! BFP

The moment you realize that God is all you have is exactly when you realize that God is ALL you need!! My husband and I have been actively trying to conceive since 2012. During this journey we've had numerous highs and lows...but God! We have been on nearly every fertility medication you can imagine (or so we thought), and each time my cycle came - it was a huge disappointment. The fertility specialist we'd been seeing for years told us our only option we had left was to do an IVF. Well, that's easy to say if you're not the one forking out $15,000! Not to mention if it doesn't work the first time...it'll just be a few thousand more...very frustrating and disheartening. At the end of last year my DH and I kept praying and together we decided to get a second opinion. Back to my title...when God is all you have you realize that God is all you need! On our very first cycle with the new fertility specialist, and our very first cycle trying Clomid, I am ecstatic to report that we got our BFP!!! It's been an extremely long journey, but one thing we've learned is to take the limits off of God! I know it's tough while you're going through it, but my prayer is that this post encourages someone to hang in there because every test brings a TESTimony! My first pregnancy symptom was a missed period, before that I didn't have any other symptoms! In previous months I'd had every symptom under the sun...it's funny how life works! Hang in there and know that you aren't alone, and that there are a lot of people on this site praying for you and cheering for you along the way!

BFP 2nd Round Clomid

I am 25 yes old and have been TTC for 3 yrs. I just started Clomid in Nov. The first round was unsuccessful, with my progesterone test coming back very low. I started on 50mg, so the Dr. Increased the dosage to 100mg which I took cycle days 5-9. I had some symptoms from the Clomid the previous month so was expecting some discomfort. On cycle day 21 I went for my progesterone test. A week later I got the results I did ovulate. I was to ovulate on CD 15.
11Dpo: sore breast
13dpo : cramping and tightness in lower left abdomen
18dpo: very emotional
So I decided to test. So nervous and reluctant to get bad news I just got a $ store test. And when I saw 2 lines I almost lost it. Sooo I am now 5wks pregnant. I have had 3 miscarriages in the past so my worrying is far from over but it just feels different this time. My husband is so excited but due to past disappointments, we chose to announce it on April fools day!! Thank you for the stories they gave me hope to keep trying. Good luck to u all
