2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9 at 9dpo

2nd round of clomid 50mg 5-9, BFP at 9 dpo.

This is my 2nd time being able to post my bfp on this site. The first time around we had been ttc for 4 years, and this was 2 years ago. I ended up pg on first round of clomid, but sadly ended up miscarrying at 11 weeks. That time around I didn't have any symptoms or signs that I was pregnant at all! This time around is VERY different!

I got a positive opk on cd 14 and know I ovulated on cd 15 due to the fun ovulation cramping that clomid induces. We used preseed each time we bd and are able to bd 13,14,15 and 16.

1dpo-5dpo: Nothing.
6dpo: Cramping, just like af! Tender bbs and had that 'let down' feeling in them.
7dpo: Right sided tight pinching feeling, near ovaries. Very tender bbs.
8dpo: Zingy feeling in bbs that radiated to my armpits. Very sharp stab feeling through to my vajayjay..very odd feeling! Constipated.
9dpo: Having to pee ALOT, like every 15 minutes. Tender bbs. Tight cramping right side. Let down feeling again. Faint positive at 530 pm
10dpo: Very positive on Frer! Still sore bbs. Crampy like af is going to show any moment! Very very hungry!!

I am praying this little one sticks!! It's been 6 years now that we have been trying for our last baby and this is the final try, I can't go through another loss. So, any prayers our way would be appreciated. Good luck ladies and I pray you all get your bfp soon! Xoxo

BFP* iui first time

Same sex relationship 13yrs, highschool sweethearts. Graduated college ready for a family so we went right to a reproductive specialist. No major issues with fertility just no male partner. We used a sperm bank and they did our iui. During my cycle we used clomid... trigger shot(thigh) and iui 36hrs after trigger shot. No other meds. I was pregnant on our first try. So it's very much possible.

1dpiui bloated ovary pain
2dpiui bloated ovary pain
3dpiui ovary twinges dizzy
4dpiui ovary pain, dizzy when I initially stand up
5dpiui uterus and ovary pain
6dpiui gassy/burning in stomach and sharp/pulling sensation in groin

Blessings and pregnancy dust to you all.

BFP with Clomid

I am so excited to finally be able to share my story here. Like many women, I've come to this site for strength and advice during the TTC journey. First, a little back story. My husband and I have been trying to have a wee one for about four years now. This past Dec I finally decided to go on Clomid cycle days 5-9. The first cycle I did not ovulate and I received my BFP this cycle, my second round. I did things a lot differently this cycle such as I took my Clomid pill at the same time every day. I never really knew it made a difference but I spoke with the Nurse Practitioner and she said it was very important! I was instructed to have sex everyother day cycle days 10-23 and I did but this time I used Preseed and the Softcup after we were finished BD'ing. I let the little swimmers sit for about 10-15 mins before I inserted the cup. On the days my hubby wasn't feeling it I just gave him a mr handy and put the swimmers in the cup with preseed and inserted it. I also had a lot of different symptoms these time indicating I could be pregnant. First right away I had the sore nipples that radiated out to my breast and I've had AF type cramps but no period (a week late I am) and I have had a ton of at first thick white discharge that has turned to a yellowish greenish color. I have not noticed to much of a morning sickness yet and I hope it stays that way! I feel so blessed right now! If any of you ladies have questions please please ask! Best of luck to you all and lots of sticky baby dust!!

5th round of clomid

My husband and I had been ttc for 10 months since having paragaurd IUD removed. This month was the first month I really thought was a bust. We were on vacation, not a relaxing one either, and I had a mishap with a soft cup on the day I knew I was ovulating. This was our first month using soft cups and I was a bit nervous about doing it right, but I really do believe that these and some preseed were very helpful, and I would recommend them to any lady who is ttc.
I can totally relate when ladies say they had more symptoms on their BFN months, I had it all, nausea, sore boobs, mood swings, bloating, crying hysterically. Then I read these symptoms can all be side effects of climid. But this month nothing really made the lightbulb come on. I even decided we would take six month off and started planning a really great summer around 8 dpo because I was positive I was not pregnant.

So here are my symptoms though they weren't much:

cd 15-high fertility on CB ovulation test bd'd with pressed and soft cups

cd 16-travelling from 2am till 12 but make time to bd with SoftCups and Preseed. Feel disheartened that I can't lay down for long after.

cd 17- ovulation day, great day at disney world, and had a few too many drinks that night, bd'd with SoftCups and Preseed

1dpo-10dpo-nothing really, felt tired but I thought it was just from traveling. Felt very defeated/depressed because I thought I was out again. The only thing that i noticed was different was that I usually had cm in my undies at this point till af, but nothing there. Also around 9dpo till now have had bm's 2 or three times a day.

11dpo- notice i can't find the opening of my cervix when checking cp. Found it pointing all the way toward tailbone, never felt it like this before, also felt slimy mid height and hard. still feeling sad but no other symptoms.

12-dpo awoke up early and tested. walked away knowing it was negative, went back to look and saw a faint second line! tested again later that night and line is darker! no cm in undies, very tired that night in bed at 8

13-dpo- tested on CB digital and the word pregnant came up immediately! no cm in undies,hunger pains, irritable and very tired in bed at 8

14dpo- still not many symptoms, tired, irritable ( bitchy is a better word) and hungry more than usual, no cm in undies

I think I have the normal fears that af will show up, but I'm trying to stay positive and just repeat to myself that my body is ready for this. Hopefully it will help and I hope that I helped someone else. Its a dark and lonely place when your ttc for awhile, no one quite understands how it feels unless they've been through it. Try not to let it take over your life, talk to someone who gets it if you can, and focus your energy on something else.

BFP 13DPO..... clomid

Well hello everybody today i got my bfp this morning after tryin for over 4 years, start clomid 2 round got a bfp then it end up being a ectopic, that was in oct/nov now my 2nd round of clomid with a bfp hoping baby made it to the right spot this time doc app on the 17..... me and hubby r so happy, but dont want to tell my family until i know for sure the bean stick. lol

IUI success

I promised Myself I would come back and post when I got my BFP - we had an IUI due to unknown issues and during procedure found my cervix was tilted which I am thinking was part of issues getting Prego/ the swimmers had a bigger challenge than most. We used clomid and then a trigger shot.

I had ZERO symptoms. I say this bc month after month I would symptom spot and was always disappointed. I did not have EWCM this month, in fact I had a tiny amount of discharge daily after procedure which I assumed was from meds- just barely enough to notice it. I didn't have sore boobs, I wasn't crazy emotional- I didn't feel sick; maybe just a little tired but I was also busy so I didn't think anything of it.

So here is to hoping for a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby

For all of us TTC who have been told "just relax!"

This post is dedicated to all of us who have wanted to punch someone in the face when they told us to "just relax" and we would get pregnant.

I literally had everything go wrong, had a super stressful month, and got my BFP.

My hubby and I have been trying since 2011. That's five long years if you are counting at home. Two years of trying (my hubby travels a lot for work, we gave it extra time), an unexplained infertility diagnosis, two more years of "not trying" and "just relaxing" and three medicated IUI's. Our first IUI resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I was so traumatized that I waited a year before trying one again. Our second IUI I got massages, took things easy, went to see a Chiropractor, and did yoga daily. BFN.

This last month on the day I was supposed to go into my RE's for my day three ultrasound I felt like I had been runover by a truck. Was this allergies or a cold? MY RE told me to come in anyway. I live in Central Texas and have been braving a bout of Cedar Fever (think a Cold that lasts for several weeks until Cedar Pollen levels go down). I lost my voice, had fatigue, coughing, phlegm, you name it. To make things better, in 11 years of being a real estate agent, I had my busiest January EVER. I was working 7 days a week, handling lots of clients, and FLIPPING STRESSED. Between the work, fertility drugs, and cedar fever alone I became very unpleasant for my hubby to be around.

THEN, my husband gets a call about an entire work project being shutdown. This results in him leaving his job and starting a new business just about a year ahead of schedule and one week before our IUI. I'm covering as much as I can with my job, I feel like crap, and now the breadwinner of our family has just started a brand new business. Awesome. We were so busy and I was just trying to SURVIVE. I didn't even have much time to worry about our fertility treatment this month. I was the girl in her RE's office working on my laptop before my appointment. After our IUI, I ate lunch and was back to work with meeting clients immediately. I didn't really have a choice.

I was on Clomid, Gonal-F, and had a trigger shot. This was the first time we used a fresh sample for hubby and his counts were lower than they had been in the past. I don't remember motility, but his counts were about 13 million. I had two follicles mature and a small one that was a maybe.

I had no symptoms that were different from my normal cycle until last week. With our chemical pregnancy I noticed a few days before our BFP, I would wake up every night between 1-3 AM. I started doing this again. However, when I get stressed and busy with my job I tend not to sleep very well. I wasn't sure if I wasn't sleeping due to stress or hormones. I also noticed no spotting. I typically can spot anywhere from 3-7 days before my period starts. Even when I had my chemical. To this day (15DPIUI) I have had no spotting whatsoever, except for right after our IUI. I did have some cramping on and off during the 2WW which isn't abnormal for me. Part of the problem with being on fertility drugs is that you don't know what is the drugs and what are early pregnancy symptoms. I finally broke down and tested 12DPIUI because my boobs were hurting more than normal (but they normally are full and achy at this point in my cycle). To my surprise, it was a BFP. I had my betas today and it came back at 156. We go back for more blood tests on Wednesday to see if numbers are rising. I'm cautiously optimistic. We've never gotten this far before!!

So yeah, you can be stressed as hell and still get a BFP.

BFP on clomid

I got my BFP on 12th of January. I have stalked this site for my tww , and thought of writing my story when I do get my BFP but only when I cross the 12 weeks mark, as I had an m/c(BO) at 6 weeks last July. Unfortunately, I had second m/c , this time @8 weeks and this too turned out to be BO. But still I know how we try to make out the meaning of every little twitch and pain while in TWW so here are my symptoms. I wish every women out there a successful and healthy pregnancy and no one should go through what I had to:

1-6DPO: nothing, slightly heavy abdomen just like any other cycle.
7dpo: slight fatigue and nothing else
8dpo: some pinching pain on the left side, fatigue
9dpo: sleepless at night, drinking lots of water and several trips to bathroom.
10dpo: b**bs look bigger and tighter (sorry TMI), still sleepless at night
11dpo: sleepy all day and very thirsty, very little sleep at night.
12dpo: couldn't wait . tested at night, very faint positive after 3-4 mintues.
14:dpo : BFP !! bold and beautiful

My main symptoms both the times were change size and feel of breasts, change in sleeping pattern, thirsty and getting up to pee in the middle of the nite. Breast tenderness started around 16-17dpo.

Our first BFP!!

I m a constant stalker here, and I cant explain how comforting this site is, big thanks to all. Now to my story, I am 26, ttc 1year. I know how it feels to overlook every symptoms. Yoga kept me somewhat sane.
Jan 8 to 16 AF
Had heavy flow, I m on clomid from last 2 cycles and I have been writing all my symptoms.
Cd 14 -ewcm, bd
We bd every day during fertile window, I dont temp.
I got my BFP on cd 31, it was dark and 2 days late for af. I was afraid to test before.
Symptoms that were so promising were the goosebumps, I live in India and its not at all cold, I was surprised by this symptom and the other constant sore bbs, it never left me, I could also spot some new blue veins on bbs.
Clomid did the magic, I was diagnosed pcos at 20 yrs. Hoping for the best, need your prayers
