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.

BFP 19 DPO, PCOS, 1st Round of Clomid, 1st Month Trying

Let me start off by saying that the word INFERTILE is literally written on my file and I am just shocked to see my BFP so early. I have PCOS and do not ovulate on my own. My husband and I assumed it would take years to get pregnant, so we decided to start trying as soon as I got diagnosed. Doctor put me on 50 mg of Clomid because she said I would just be wasting my time if I tried naturally. Boy did that work!

Also, let's talk about how long after my missed period that it took me to get my BFP! (I have no idea how long my cycle is, I just know via my doctor that I ovulated on Day 14 or so). Don't lose hope if you haven't seen that positive yet. Especially if you drink a lot of water and have a small bladder like me. It ain't over until your period comes.

Symptoms:
Ovulation: Only indication that I ovulated was a positive OPK 2 days before. No symptoms.
4-14 DPO: A myriad of normal PMS symptoms...most notably very sore bbs. We were on our honeymoon during this time, and I was complaining about hot flashes and swollen feet but we chalked it up as the altitude change. A couple of moments of car sickness, but this is nothing new with me. I am always car-sick. All BFN up to this point.
15-16 DPO: No period. Maybe I didn't ovulate. Cramping down there, maybe period is on her way. Still BFN.
17 DPO: All hope lost. Went to doctor for my new round of Provera and Clomid RXs and tested negative for pregnancy (urine test). I think the doc knew something I didn't. She said no Provera for a MONTH and take a preg test once a week, just in case.
18 DPO: Light-headed, nausea, a bbs are now really veiny.
19 DPO: I floss and gums are bleeding really bad. This never happens. I haven't peed yet today so I took a cheapie preg test. Is that a faint line? Research faint line and see on peeonastick.com that it MIGHT be positive. Run to Rite Aid, get a digital to put all false hopes to bed and HOLY CRAP it says Pregnant! I sob in the bathroom. Put test on kitchen table to surprise husband, he comes home and lays a pizza on top of it and doesn't even see it.
20 DPO: Take a cheapie, line is a darker BFP.

After having 27 years of assuming I will never have a baby (because I never had periods) here I am, all knocked up. I can't believe the luck we had.

BFP on First Cycle of Clomid!

After three years of actively ttc #1 and one mmc in August I got a bfp today on dpo 12 on 50 mg. of Clomid

cd 3-7 Clomid 50 mg with robitussun, baby aspirin, lots of water and lots of milk
cd 7-10 lots of watery cm, feeling like I had wet myself - very odd and different, blue veins of bbs, extra hungry and super emotional and moody!
cd 9-11 tired, cramps in hand, need to pee more often, blue veins (tested with negatives for three days)
cd -11 argued with hubby, super hungry, cried myself to sleep
cd -12 - woke up and tested with fmu and light bfp using FRER! - weepiness understood :)
Tested again after drinking a lot of fluids at 5pm and slightly darker positive
Called Dr. and scheduled 6 week ultrasound
I had been testing with digital opks and tested positive on cd 16 and 17 - had been bding every other day up to pos opk and the two days of positive. Because of previous miscarriage, am taking 100 mg of prometrium and baby aspirin daily throughout first trimester - hope this one sticks! Stay hopeful - baby dust to all and a h&h nine months!!

BFP!! Thanks to Clomid and Pre-Seed!!

So background - ever since I was a teenager I never had regular periods and was not on BCP. Growing up I probably had 1-2 a year MAX. Years ago I had charted my BBT, showing flat temps and no ovulation for up 4 months. Periods were only induced with Provera. PCOS had been ruled out via blood work and no diagnosis was given for my anovulatory cycles.

Now that I'm 27 and recently married, my hubby and I decided to start trying. I started charting my BBT again for a few months after getting off of BCP, with no ovulation detected. I took these charts as well as my older charts to my OBGYN and asked if I could be put on a round of Clomid.

They started me off on 100 mg, CD 3-7, unmonitored. The first round I felt like I was going to O (pains in ovaries, EWCM) but unfortunately no shift in my BBT and 0.3 for progesterone on "CD21." Discouraged I met with the OBGYN again and asked if I could get a trigger shot. I felt like my body was so close to O'ing that it just needed that extra push. He agreed and we started round 2 with ultrasound monitoring of follicle growth and hcg trigger shot.

Along with this 2nd Clomid round, we used Pre-Seed and I took Robitussin (Guaifenesin) CD 13-15, prenatal vitamins and DH had been taking Zinc and Selenium for the past 2 months.

Well, all of that combination worked! Here's a breakdown of my symptoms notes in hopes it will help someone else as the stories in this website have helped me:

CD 3-7 - 100mg Clomid
CD 8-11 - Twinges/pressure mostly over left ovary (LO) but some felt over right ovary (RO).
CD 12 - 1st and only ultrasound to check follicles. RO 1 follicle @ 10mm, LO 1 follicle at 14mm and 2+ @ 10mm!!
CD 14 - 5,000 IU hcg trigger shot! Watery CM. BD w/Pre-Seed
CD 15 - Ovulation day! Felt ovulation happening! An hour or two of AF like cramps and back ache followed by lots of pressure over LO (I swear I heard a pop-pop!). Watery CM. BD w/Pre-Seed (and it hurt. Cervix was very tender)
1DPO/CD16 - Confirmed temp rise, EWCM, nipples sore (was going to BD but was just too tired)
2DPO/CD17- Creamy CM, nipples sore
3DPO/CD18 - Woke up with a pounding headache. Ovaries a little sore when out for a run. Creamy CM, nipples sore
4DPO/CD19 - Tons of creamy CM. Weird tightness in uterus area - not really cramps just pressure. Fatigue
5DPO/CD20 - Tons of creamy CM. Nipples slightly sore. Tightness and slight burning in uterus all day. Fatigue
6DPO/CD21 - Tons of creamy CM. Nipples slightly sore. Fatigue
7DPO/CD22 - Small amount creamy CM. Nipples sore. AF-like cramps and backache for 3-4 hours then completely went away. Felt awful all day long.
8DPO/CD23 - Dry CM. Nipples sore
9DPO/CD24 - Small amount creamy CM. Nipples sore. FRER using FMU - BFN. FRER again at 4pm, might be seeing a line but DH can't see it. Calling it another BFN. AF-like cramps and backache (have them only for an hour or so)
10DPO/CD25 - Creamy CM, Nipples sore. Nose stuffed up, slept with mouth open (screwed up temping, grr!). Dry mouth and headache waking up (felt as if I was hung over). FRER w/ FMU - I and DH see a *pink* line!!!! BFP!!!!!! AF-like cramps backache again for an hour or so.
11DPO/CD26 - Creamy CM, Nipples sore. Slept with mouth open again due to stuffy nose. Dry mouth and headache waking up (felt as if I was hung over). FRER w/ FMU slightly darker BFP!!

My number one give away was the intermittent AF-like cramps and backache a week before AF was due. I never thought this day would come! I thought it would take us years to conceive but we are extremely blessed and fortunate!! Waiting to take the beta blood test later this week!!!

BFP After Two Years With PCOS, Low Motility/Morphology, on Metformin and Clomid, plus Ovidrel Trigger Shot and IUI

My Husband and I have been trying for two years. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, and he was told his Motility/Morphology weren't great. We did acupuncture together for four months, and took MOUNTAINS of vitamins and herbs. I've been on Metformin for PCOS for the entire two years, but we still hadn't had any success. When we were finally ready to take the next step, we did three cycles of Metformin plus Clomid and timed Intercourse. Still no luck. We finally moved onto IUI. The first cycle, I had every pregnancy symptom in the book, but did not end up being pregnant. The second cycle, I had almost no symptoms whatsoever, but my day 11 Blood Test level was 46! I went back on day 13 for another, and the Beta level was 118! I'm Pregnant! This morning, I finally got a BFP on a digital test, so I'm starting to believe it. : )

Timed Intercourse and Ovidrel Trigger Shot on Cycle Day 14
IUI on Cycle Day 16
4DPO - Odd, period like cramps, with slightly different feel today
5DPO - More cramps, gas
9DPO - Mild nausea from about 4:00pm until bedtime. Noticed I had been out of breath after climbing the stairs today and maybe three days prior. Not normal.
11DPO - Very odd, but I noticed that my nether region had been "beating" for days. This happens to me once in awhile, but never multiple times a day. It feels like I can feel a heartbeat in my vaginal area. Has anyone else experienced this?? Doctor called with a Positive Blood Test Result! Beta Level 46!
12 DPO - Minor stomach upset
13 DPO - Another Positive Blood Test! Beta Level 118! Medium stomach upset, and it gurgled all day. Some odd cramping too.
14 DPO - Positive Digital Test! Woot! (A girl waits her whole life for one of those!) ; )

No sore breasts, very little nausea, no exhaustion. I was sure I wasn't pregnant before my first Blood Test, and I am! : D 4 weeks, 1 day today.

My Best Friend knows, because she knew most details of our IUI process. We're going to see my Mom and Stepdad this weekend, and may tell ONLY them. Otherwise, we'll try to keep our mouths shut until Week 12!

I have my first Ultrasound on March 2nd, at Six Weeks, and should be due around October 24th! : ) Crossing everything I can cross and praying for a safe arrival!

Wishing you all much luck and much love!

BFP After 6 Months of TTC & 3 Rounds of Clomid

We were TTC #2 for the last 6 months. I knew something was wrong after not getting any positive OPK's in our first three months. Went to the doctor and they diagnosed me with skinny PCOS. Put me on Metformin 1000mg and Clomid. First two rounds of Clomid were unsuccessful. Final round I was up to 150 mg. I drastically changed my diet. I did a 4 day juice cleanse and used evening primrose oil CD 1 - 14. I also started acupuncture. We had been using Preseed for a couple of months now. Here are my symptoms.

LMP was January 15, BD CD 11 - 18, every day.
1DPO-3DPO: nothing unusual
4DPO: had a sharp pain in uterus, stopped me in my tracks
5 - 10 DPO: extreme hunger and thirsty all the time
11 DPO: Tested - BFN. Was experiencing a lot of creamy CM
12 - 13 DPO: Very faint BFP on FRER, husband went out to buy a digital took it in the afternoon said not pregnant
14DPO: very ache small cramps, had CM with brown spotting when I wiped, put a tampon in and thought here we go again..... but when I pulled it out later nothing was on it.
15DPO: woke up and took a digital test, PREGNANT!! Yeah!! Still slight cramping no more brown spotting.

It has been a journey for us and I am thrilled, went to the doctor today for a blood test, waiting for the results than I will go again in a couple of days to make sure my hormones are rising sufficiently. I can't be more thrilled, I am praying for a very healthy and happy 9 months!

Good luck to everyone. Don't lose hope - keep trying!

BFP @ 7dpo w/ Clomid

Hello :) I have been using this site for support since June 2011. I really appreciate everyone's help while TTC. I know it is very early but I had to share the news. Last night; I tested on 7dpo and got a super faint line on FRER. I took another 4 hours later, still faint but darker than before. I am very excited! This was our 1st month taking Clomid 100 mg. We prayed and elevated the hips every time we BD. Hubby had SA, everything good except poor morphology.

CD 5-9 Clomid
CD 13/14 and 16 Positive OPK CBdigital is the way to go!
CD 13/14/15 BD
CD17 temps dove really low
CD 22 Tested Progesterone (25.17)
CD 23 Took FRER, come back BPF!!!! :) Hubby wants to see it get darker. Cramping on and off, gassy, slight nausea in AM.

Praying for a Healthy Bean!! Thanks again.

My advice is to get a digital OPK, I think out of all the many things I have tried in the past 12 cycles, the OPK was what helped the most this cycle. And I also tried to visualize the sperm meeting the egg...read that somewhere. It worked!!

BFP After 16 Months of TTC!

After 16 months, several trips to our reproductive specialist, and my second round of Clomid, we finally got our BFP. We were beginning to resign to the fact that maybe a baby just wasn't in the cards for us and lo and behold... Sometimes patience is the hardest thing... All in all, this two week wait I had less "symptoms" than any other month!

1dpo - shooting pains in vagina, almost felt like my cervix was itchy
2dpo - low back aches while sleeping, no food appeals, sore/itchy nipples (but this also happened last month with round 1 of Clomid)
3dpo - low back aches while sleeping, dizzy spell early in the afternoon
4dpo - nothing out of the normal except for an afternoon headache
5dpo - had to sit out a few poses during yoga, more acne than usual
6dpo - intense shooting pains in my vagina in the AM, very vivid baby dreams (although I get these a lot)
7dpo - slight cramps but nothing crazy
8dpo - had to take a nap in the afternoon (I never nap)
9dpo - woke up really thirsty and with ZERO appetite for anything all day, had a slight headache
10dpo - VERY faint BFP at 7am, didn't want to obsess so I figured I'd let it go and take another one in 2 days, left eye started twitching, still no food appeals to me even though I'm pretty hungry
11dpo - more left eye twitching and light cramps
12dpo - I woke up really early bc I was dreaming about positive pregnancy tests (crazy), faint BFP (but the line was slightly darker than 2 days ago), gave in and showed my husband, we agreed not to get our hopes up even though all signs point to yes
13dpo - no doubt about this BFP, wound up taking 4 different brands of tests and all came back positive

My doc had me come in that next day for blood work which confirmed it! I'm now almost 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to everyone!

2 Months of IUI and Chlomid...FINALLY BFP!!

My DH and I have been trying for over a year and went through our second round with IUI this month, I went to take a blood/pregnancy test yesterday and the doc called back around 1:30pm, I just let it go to voicemail, and somehow managed to get through the day so DH and I could listen to it when I got home. All I remember is her saying CONGRATULATIONS. I am over the moon excited, and it still doesn't feel real. It was such a long road, but worth every tear along the way!!

I really didn't have any symptoms besides cramping/pressure which made me think I was going to get my period any day. I did have a little more CM than usual for the past 2 weeks, and I was extremely thirsty.

This year has been the most emotional for me, and never did I think that I would actually get pregnant. Hearing everyone around me getting pregnant was hard to swallow, but don't give up and have faith, it will happen!! Baby dust to everyone!!

BFP After Trigger & Clomid

I never thought I would be able to post on here. But after 8.5months of the emotional rollercoaster of TTC I finally got my BFP on 11DPO.

This month we used Clomid 100mg (2d round) days 2-6, the Pregnyl trigger and progesterone cream. I also took extra B6 in the 2ww as I have a short LP and I used Conceive Plus.

CD13 - BD
CD14 - BD - Conceive plus used
CD 15 - I ovulated - No BD
CD 16 - BD
1-3 DPO - No symptoms
4 DPO - I vomited, which I never do.
5-9 DPO - Random shooting booby pain, increased creamy CM.
10 DPO - AF normally here, but no spotting. Cramps.
11 DPO - Temp shot up, took a test - faint BFP, but worried it was trigger.
12 DPO - Worried all day I am not pregnant and the trigger is playing tricks.
13 DPO - Darker BFP... and super temp spike to 37.08C...I am over the moon happy!

I didn't really have any symptoms, still not sore boobs. The only thing I really have is random sharp shooting uterine cramps. I am praying the baby sticks and I have a healthy and happy 9 months, with a beautiful baby at the end of it.
