BFP with Clomid first month! TTC 4months

I am still in shock but wanted to share my story to give someone somewhere some encouragement. About me, I'm 27 and my DH is 28 and 4 months ago we decided to start a family. I was diagnosed with thin PCOS soon after and was prescribed 50 mg of Clomid once my doctor realized I was not ovulating on my own. Fast forward to the November 30th, I got my period and started taking the pills on CD 3-7 with estrogen supplements on CD 8-12. My CD 10 follicle scans showed 2 mature eggs 17mm and 18mm on my right side (loaded with cysts) and a 13.5mm on my right side. I was overjoyed to see that the Clomid was working for me. FYI - I am an extreme pessimistic. I started temping for the first time because based on those number my nurse believed I was going to ovulate mid-cycle. I was skeptical because my I never gotten a positive OPK and my cycle average around 40 days. So on CD 14 I got a positive OPK and that week we BD 5 times. I saw my temp rise on CD 16 and believe I ovulated. During this week, I experienced severe ovulation pain unable to walk or move at times. My bowel movements were painful and having sex was almost unbearable. My nurse said this is common especially if you haven't ovulated in a long time plus it was my for month on Clomid. I thought she was crazy.

1-5DPO - I was still in pain. Walking was so hard I worked from home to stay under the heat pad. During this time my breast was hurting and I had CM. I thought it was still the aftermath of ovulating. CD 21 I got my progestrone pulled and it was 72! I was dumbfounded that I actually ovulated and possible with multiple follicles. My nurse said I was sure to get pregnant. I was again skeptical.

8DPO - the worse happened. I was rushed to the ER with serve cervical pains and cramping that parallelized me. I was confident that a cyst had erupted. Keep in mind this the day before Christmas Eve and on Christmas we were planning to travel to China for the holiday. The ran many test including a beta pregnancy test - which came back negative less than 3 - and everything looked find. I was incredible frustrated. At this moment I knew I didn't want to take Clomid right away or at least not at 50mg. The ER doctor said I have over stimulated ovaries and this pain should subside. I was pissed because it felt more than just "ovary pains." So 5 hours later we were driving back home.

9DPO - I cried 2 hours because the beta test was negative and I felt this entire process was worthless. My husband kept saying it was too early to tell but I had watched countless youtube videos with women getting faint lines on 8DPO - silly me thinking I was going to be like everyone else.

10DPO - Christmas morning, I took an online cheapie and I saw a faint line. I asked my DH what he saw and he said he saw a line as well. I was indifferent and chalked it up to a false positive. We board our 17hr plane to China and I am 1000% nausea, unable to eat, brown spotting, cramping, and extremely gassy. You can only imagine how comfortable this ride was. We travel frequently and I knew something was up but couldn't believe I was pregnant.

11DPO - After finally getting into our hotel room, I took another cheapie and bam the line was much darker. I then took a Clear Blue Digital and saw the words pregnant! I am 4 weeks now sitting in a hotel in China trying not to puke while enjoying our holiday. Will you believe me if i tell you I am still in disbelieve. Can't wait to get the final confirmation from my nurse!

Keep believing ladies because this too will be your story - but better!

BFP with Clomid first month! TTC 4months

So I told myself I would write one of these once or if I ever saw a BFP. As you can tell, I am beyond pessimistic. So I have always had irregular periods since I was 11. I never took b/c because never saw the need. Fast forward to 4 months ago when my DH and I wanted to start trying for a kid. I know my irregular periods - 40 day average cycle - would prove to be an issues. For 3 months, we tried on our own and I never once saw a positive OPK. I knew something was up. Went to a RE and he said I have thin PCOS. I was like "WTH is that." I was dumbfounded. I was always told that having longer periods were not a big issues and have been really active in my life since grade school. I eat a relatively organic veggie based diet and thought I was the golden girl for healthy living. Unfortunately I was not educated enough about what was going on with my body. So the RE decides to put me on Clomid 50MG cycle 3-7 with estrogen supplements form 8-12. I was skeptical about Clomid and was still in shock that I had a rare form of PCOS. Anyways follicle scan showed 17mm and 18mm follicles and I was estatic. Few days later got my first every positive OPK on CD 14 - almost missed it but was testing twice a day. We BD about 4 times that week. I was temping as well and say the spike on CD 16. I was dumbfounded how standard everything was working going when the month before I had a 40day cycle.

Anyways right after my positive OPK I started experiencing excruciating ovulation pain. I was unable to walk for long times or move. When I sneezed or coughed or even laughed I was in intensive pains. This went on for 10 days after my positive OPK. I was even rushed to the ER on 8 DPO. I was unable to walk and was screaming so loud my DH called the EMT right away. My RE and the ER doctor said the same thing, I have over stimulated ovaries. It looks like the Clomid worked "too well." Well at the ER they did a beta pregnancy test and my numbers came back less than 3. I was devastated. I didn't want to go to this pain again. I kept reading that 8 DPO might be to early to tell. 9PO woke up incredibly depressed and wept for 2 hours straight. 10PDO I took a cheapie pregnancy test not expecting anything and poof there a faint line. Christmas Day and we got a confirmation we were pregnant. My DH confirmed because someones my eyes can fool me. Well I still didn't believe it. We were - currently in - on our way to China and I was just focusing on making the flight.

Well 17 hours later I took another cheapie and this time the line was much brighter. I took a clear blue digital and boom - PREGNANT. I can't believe how fast this worked for us on Clomid but it was not without its issues.

Let me know if you want to hear my symptoms by DPO.

Miracle BFP after 2 LONG years TTC with IUI!

As I sit here and type this I literally can't believe I this is happening yet-does NOT feel real at all!!! I got my first ever bfp ever in all my life on November 12, 2016. SO much has happened in the last few weeks and I am currenly 7 weeks pregnant. I would love to share my story as reading everyone else's story got me through so much anxiety and gave me hope, this is a long story, but hang tight, I want to be precise for you ladies!

Background: I am 31, hubby is 32. I am in great shape, eat pretty great and workout about 3-4 x a week. I am not a heavy drinker but hubby loves his craft beers socially. We have been married for 10 years. 2 years ago we finally decided to try for our first baby, I had no interest in rushing starting a family because I wanted to have all our ducks in a row, finish my career, own a home, travel together and grow within our marriage. Fast forward now 2 years later, we would have never thought it would take this long-ever!! I figured it would take 6 months max. Started getting some diagnostic work to see if all checked out after 6 months of not even a hint of a bfp. All checked out on my end. My DH on the other hand had his first semen analysis done and he had a great count, but 2% morphology and pretty awful motility as well. I cried when I found out because that female Dr. made me feel like that report would cut our pregnancy chances each month by 50%. I was determined to change this!! I immediately did my research-boy am I good at this! Got him started on the fertile aid supplements for men, and made him take 2000mg of vitamin C a day, also got him on probiotics. After 4 months his numbers improved pretty great yet we were still not pregnant. Meanwhile during all this time I was getting poked and prodded still thinking it was me that had the issue and had all kinds of fertility lab tests done under the sun. Hormone labwork and HSG all normal. Nothing was working to help us get pregnant. I was so heartbroken every month and every one around me was getting pregnant so easily! So in the end of spring of 2016 I went to a well known RE (my 3rd one I had seen) and he immediately said we needed one more diagnostic test for me and brand new semen analysis for him. After him being on MONTHS of fertile aid and Motility boost supplements he still had again poor motility and poor morphology. Our next step was IUI with clomid and a trigger shot of Ovridel. The month before our IUI on November 1st, we had the final diagnostic for me which was the hysteroscopy (internal uterus check and biopsy under general anesthesia).
Man, if this did not help, I was going to scream....felt so sad to have all this done when people get pregnant for free always!!

Fast forward, we started on 100 mg of Clomid, turns out, I was told by my RE I was an egg making machine!! It worked like a charm, it made me have like 6-8 mature follicles on the first shot. So we did a trigger shot on Halloween, the next day, we did our IUI, and the good thing is my RE does back to back IUI's to maximize the chances of the egg meeting the sperm so ASK FOR THAT!!! Hubby after sperm wash was only 6.8 million good sperm and the day after on the 2nd insemination was only 5.3 million. Our RE said it was a very "marginal" amount, so he wasn't thrilled at all. But I figured, we are doing two, so it can help!!

Now for the DREADED TWW:
I had severe cramping on ovulation day/ insemination day, so I know the trigger shot worked!
DPO 1-8 NOTHING that told me I could be pregnant! I had period type low cramps every day like when I would always get my period, I was so distraught this expensive procedure that was NOT covered by our insurance would work and I prayed so much that it would. I literally would go in another room and cry by myself every night thinking this had failed and we would have to try multiple rounds and eventually have to do IVF. I didn't want my extremely faith positive husband to see me.

Then on 9DPO I was at the mall with my mom and I got dizzy twice. Thought that was weird for sure!
The next morning, I woke up and had a hint of egg white CM in my underwear which by the time I am about to get my period I am dry as s bone or get the sticky white CM. 2nd major clue. That night I took I clear blue test and got a faint BFP!!!! I knew it! All the praying we did to ask God for it to work the first time, and he listened!!
Don't get discouraged, and ask God almighty to step in and work a miracle for you, he has rescued us time and time again.
Good luck ladies, we are so excited and can't wait the arrival of our little blessing.

BFP on Clomid! Barely any symptoms!

This was my 6th round of clomid! If it didn't work my doctor told me I would need to see a specialist. I didn't ovulate with 50mg or 100mg clomid. But 150mg clomid worked!

Cycle began 11/03/16. 33 day cycle. Hubby and I had sex every other day from day 10 to day 20.

1-12 DPO-Absolutely nothing
13 DPO-Mild Cramps
14 DPO-Mild cramps, metallic tase in mouth
15 DPO- Mild cramps, BFP within seconds!

If you don't have symptoms in your tww, stay hopeful! You could be like me and not have many at all! Good luck and baby dust ladies!!! <3

Pregnant at 41 after 11 months TTC

I am so excited to say I just got my BFP yesterday and I wanted to share incase I can help anyone else.

I gave birth to my first baby in September last year at 40. When my period returned in January the following year, we started trying due to my age. MY cycles were fairly irregular, they're usually 28 days but were around 40 days so after 7 months I went to see my OBGYN who prescribed me Clomid to trigger an early ovulation. She said because my cycles were so irregular, my chances of conceiving were disadvantaged. The first cycle I took the Clomid on days 3-7 and my cycle was super short - like 24 days, so the next cycle i tried 5-9. I should add, I have moved overseas so my old OBGYN was not monitoring me, just prescribed the medication, so I based this decision on my research.

I was beginning to get disheartened after trying for 10 months and so I researched what i could take. My concerns were around egg quality for my age so for this I started taking Maca powder and Royal Jelly. I also took Vitamin E as I read this helps fertility in general. I had been taking these for one month and just got my BFP!!! Dont know if it was a coincidence or perhaps taking the Clomid later helped. I read if you do this, it doesnt release the egg quickly but releases a better quality egg. When I got pregnant with my first I was also taking Vitamin E so I can really recommend that. Another thing to share is for the first time ever, I did not have EWCM, I think the Clomid dries this up, so I used pre-seed. I actually never got a positive OPK either, I was using the Clear Blue digital and was only getting flashing smileys for 8 days so I stopped testing but we DTD a few times when i first got flashy smiley.

Oh, and i had ZERO symptoms. Not one.

Baby dust to all xxx

Yay! BFP !!! ROUND 2 clomid

Hello , just wanted to share my story as reading others has kept me motivated with our baby making journey ... LONG POST !! Sorry

Age 36 , previous children now aged 15 & 11 years conceived without problems , now TTC since March 2015 with the love of my life after coming off birth control coil but have PCOS , periods stopped July 2015 and only had 1 since to this date in July 2016 . I live in the UK so until 12 months had passed GP wouldn't investigate and thought just hormones not settling after birth control. Referred to gynaecology had HSG (normal) , blood tests (reversed LH and FSH) , partners sperm analysis all normal , so was told all due to ovulation problems and put on progesterone to induce AF and Clomid 50 mg .

1st cycle clomid 50 mg days 2-6 post induced period with prog, clomid side effects mild hot flashes and light cramps , follicle USS at cd12 1 follicle 10mm :( , OPK positive CD20 with cramps, post OPK had all early pregnancy symptoms under the sun - + heavy cramps from cd 18- cd 26 , however due to partner being unwell during fertile week we didn't manage to BD every other day so I wasn't hopeful on timing , DAY 21 blood test prog 19 .. ... And worst heavy and crampy AF arrived on its own CD32 before even tested... So sad :( but pleased period didn't need inducing which was one positive as I felt this meant my hormones are balancing!

2nd cycle clomid days 2-6 50 mg .... BFP!!! BFP!!!@ Cd31 not sure dpo as no follicle tracking scan , no positive OPK or ovulation cramps so thought I was out . Didn't feel any side effects clomid this month either so assumed not working for me. However had some different symptoms ...

So excited never ever thought this would be happening , hope it sticks !! Good luck ladies and don't give up ... I never thought this month would be a BFP! Thankyou Clomid!

BFP 10 months in the making!

Hi ladies!!!! My husband and I have been TTC our 3rd child since January of 2016. We have 2 smart, beautiful girls who were both conceived while I was on birth control (both times, I'll admit I may have missed a few days here and there), so when we decided to actually plan for our 3rd I thought I would get pregnant instantly! Not the case! Even after just a month of trying and not being pregnant I felt this urge to have myself checked out with my OB. Everything looked good and she had no reason to believe I would have any issues. I've already had irregular periods when I'm not on BC but it seemed like they were dragging out, 35 days, 38 days, 42 days, until we were into the 50s. I started taking Progesterone to induce my periods and in June and July blood work showed I was not ovulating. So in August I started my 1st round of clomid 50mg, days 3-7. I took mine at night and had zero side effects! On day 21 I had my progesterone checked and was told I did not ovulate. I was devestated. So at the end of September we did a 2nd round, this time 100mg, days 3-7. The 2nd round I ovulated and on CD 29 I got my BFP!!!!! I know some of you have been trying way longer than me, but I hope some of this will bring encouragement to you!!!!! Baby dust to all who read this!!!

BFP on 3rd Clomid cycle

We finally did it!! It took us 11 months of TTC. This was our 3rd Clomid cycle. We upped the dosage this cycle to 100mg for 7 days.

Positive OPK on CD17.
Ovulation CD18.
Had sex CD13-18, multiple times on O day.
1-2DPO: mild cramps
9DPO: mild cramps and a weird pinching feeling in my lower abdomen. BBT dropped below coverline.
10DPO: BBT went back up. Mild cramps. Sore breasts. Typical period symptoms so I figured I was out again.
11DPO: Intense nausea. I felt bloated and thought I was going to throw up every time I moved. Super tired and napped during the day. Breasts were super sore. My hands and feet had a weird rust-colored tint to them.
12-14DPO: Nausea lessened, but still there. Sore breasts.
15DPO: Tested with FMU and got a faint line with a wondfo. Tested again with a FRER later and got a very clear positive.

The only things I did differently this cycle were: 1) Increased dosage of Clomid and 2) Drinking Plexus for 2 weeks at the beginning of my cycle. I'd heard it helped to kind of reset your hormones and figured I'd give it a try. We also continued using Preseed during fertile days.

BFP on first round of clomid @50mg

Wow wow wow
I can't believe I am writing this finally after almost a year of bfns.
Your stories kept me go in ladies and so here's mine.

Been trying to conceive since December 2015 and kept getting negatives. Each month I did get a period so I assume I was ovulating. My cycle length was 28/29 days.
I used to symptom spot like crazy until it got to the point that I was exhausted with it all. I managed to find peace with myself by just accepting the fact that God is the giver of life and not me therefore He knows the number of kids I am going to have , their birthdays , personalities down to the hairs on their heads, so if I am not pregnant yet that just means His time is not yet up.

I have a DD who is 6 now, so I just counted my blessings and remained calm.
Last month my sister in law handed me a prescription for Clomid. I was not expecting this but I accepted it all the same. So I bought my first round of clomid @50mg which I then took from day 3-7 @2000 each night until finished. We DTD on days 7,10,11,13,14,16....(after these days I didn't record)
To be honest I didn't symptom check at all. I felt normal, the few symptoms I had were mild compared to those I had each time I got a negative result the previous months. I had 1 preg test which I took on CD26 and I got a BFN. So I figured this time didn't work out for me. CD28 came and passed with no AF which was wierd for me but then I thought it was a side effect of clomid to get a late period. CD29 started getting AF symptoms so knew she was coming. CD30,31,32,33 and 34 still no AF. That was not right so took preg test and surprise surprise BFP! !!
So yes God's time was right and clomid did work for me. My advice is to take it at the same time each day and try not to think too much of it.
Lots of love and baby dust to you all!
