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 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.

BFP, After 10 Years of Trying!!!!!!

This was my first round back on Clomid. Changed from days 5-9 to 3-7. Ovulated on day 10, which shocked me. This was the first month I swore I WAS NOT pregnant. First month in my life ever. I even refused a pregnancy test at docs because they were all negative at home. I went by ovulation for testing, not the day I started my period, so I was testing way too early and getting negatives, which depressed me.

My main symptom was a rash on my stomach, which I actually read in someone's post on here was a sign. It came on right after ovulation and was kind of pimply and non itchy. Other then that it just felt like my period was coming and coming and nothing boobs a little larger, cramping etc. But for me nothing felt more severe or different. If anything it felt like my symptoms were less then normal period coming.

Finally broke down again 4 days after period was due and OMG POSITIVE!!! I showed DH and he just said it says two lines. I took the idiot proof digital and voila - pregnant. Went to doc right away and they confirmed with urine and blood. Pregnant!!!!!

Day after confirmed my boobs hurt a little more and I was really dizzy. I have started urinating more frequently, spent a week in the bathroom from vomiting, but now I am about 6 weeks and my symptoms are off and on. One day I feel great, one day I cant stay awake and feel sick.

It is not what I expected at all. I thought everything would be so obvious and it was not. Like I said this was the first month in all my life I did not think I was.

Very excited, but nervous. I want this little one to stick so bad, I have even promised Disneyland already lol. I was so close to giving up. It has been a long, hard ten years, but now it is so worth it!!!! Keep the faith. It can happen, even if it does not seem like it ever will.

BFP & 1st Round of Clomid!!!

Hi Ladies!

I am currently 9wks 4days pregnant with my first baby!!! Had my first ultrasound scan today and all good thank God. We started trying in May 2011 straight after we got married. I have pcos so my periods were always quiet irregular - had been on the pill for over 10 years and my cycles went from 50 days to 60 days, 42 days, 41 days after coming off the pill. I wanted to check if I was ovulating so got progesterone tested through blood tests - one cycle it was 3.7 day 21 and another time 1.6 - was disheartened to hear this so doctor suggested clomid, which thankfully did the trick first time around!!

My symptoms during the two week wait were as follows:
- Boobs feeling fuller on some days but not sore
-Strong sense of smell from a couple of things - at Christmas party could really smell the coffee and cheese board ordered by one of the girls! Also my parents had a Christmas wreath on the table & I could really smell it!
-A few headaches (I had no implantation bleeding and no implantation dip).
- 14 DPO - BFP 1-2 wks with Clearblue digital!!! Couldn't believe it! Really didn't think I was pregnant - thought the fuller boobs might have been something to do with the Clomid (wasn't sure as it was only my first round of Clomid 50mg). I did the pregnancy test as I had my friend's wedding the next day (I was one of the bridesmaids) and just wanted to check on the off chance that I might be pregnant and shouldn't drink. Had a few drinks the next day to avoid questions but most of the time drank 7up (like sprite) & pretended I had vodka in it! I'm sure a few of my friends suspected but they said nothing!!

So thrilled to be this far along & feeling great! My current symptoms are that my boobs are sore and feel heavier - especially in bed if I wear no bra so tending to wear a sports bra to bed now to ease that! Also the smell of certain foods put me off especially garlic bread which I used to love! I'm also very gassy and a bit more tired than usual on certain days. No morning sickness (yet) thank god so all in all I don't feel pregnant most of the time!

I want to wish you all the best of luck - hope you get your BFPs very soon. Babydust to all xxx

BPF After 14 Months, Lap & Clomid

Hi all, got my first ever BFP after 14 months of trying. Diagnosed as unexplained, lap in Oct and gave Clomid a go (although already ovulating fine) this month as last step before IUI.

It could have been anything that got us over the line this month but above all I think the single most significant change was I have been strictly gluten free for five weeks and feeling (and looking) better than ever.

Not many symptoms
DPO 0-10 ++CM super thick and white (TMI)
DPO9-12 Sharp pains in my hips??
DPO13 brown creamy blood when wipe
DPO13-14 Very sore boobs but that is normal for me before AF

Tested and just super faint BPFs from DPO 12, super clear and fast ones today DPO15. All fingers and toes crossed for a healthy pregnancy and baby!! I cant believe how every month would get me down and feel so silly compared to others how try much longer. To all trying it will happen!!!

BFP w/ 1st Round on Clomid and Have PCOS

I'm so glad to be able to share my story with you ladies. I took Clomid on cd 5-9 and these were my symptoms...

CD 13 Felt sharp pain on my right side
CD 14 BD'd but I had pain after wards
CD 15 (I think that this was ovulation day) Woke up around 4 AM because I had cramps, I also had waves of nausea around 9 AM. I ended up sleeping until 3 PM that day but woke up with cramps again. Had lots of creamy white CM (So much that it was in my underwear). BD'd in the night and ended up having cramps right after we were done.
1 DPO woke up with mild cramping but had creamy CM but towards the end of the day I felt more dry. BD'd at night.
2 DPO Nauseous in the morning while brushing my teeth and had hot flashes all day along with a mild headache and sore nipples. I started feeling gassy towards the end of the day. In the night time I was laying down and when I got up I got big sharp pain/cramp on my left side.
3 DPO Woke up nauseous again and extremely tired. Crankiness kicks in later on while xmas shopping, nipples sore all day. Had sharp pains "down there" in the afternoon that continued into the night. Also felt dry all day.
4 DPO Had the feeling of fullness that you get when AF is coming, CM is dry. Cramps continue and nipples get painfully sore. Lower back pain started.
5 DPO Nipples hurt even more today and cramps still continue. Around 5 PM I was walking in my house and I felt something come down and so I ran to the bathroom and saw that a blob of CM was in my underwear (Sorry I know it's TMI). After wards I still feel dry down there. Went to bed with a headache.
6 DPO Nipples aren't as sore, felt nauseous while brushing my teeth. Feel bloated, work pants feel snug. Have mild cramps all day..
7 DPO Nipples still sore. Slept all day (woke up at 3 PM) but was still tired. 10:30PM my headache turns into a migraine. Extra creamy CM.
8 DPO Nauseous, migraine gone, nipples aren't as sore, constipated, when I would sneeze I would get cramps. Back pain shows up again, could barely sleep because of it.
9 DPO Bleeding gums while brushing my teeth. Felt so tired I got home at 1:30PM and fell asleep on my bed with my clothes on until 8 PM and still felt sleepy, back pain continues.
10 DPO Back pain and sore nipples (Feel like I'm out this cycle)
11 DPO Same
12 DPO BFP w/ FMU w/ FRER
13 DPO Another BFP
14 DPO go to the doctor and beta is 84
16 DPO Beta rises to 223

I'm praying that this bean sticks. After two miscarriages I hope that this third pregnancy will work out for us.

BFP! 1st round of Clomid

Wow, yesterday I got my first BFP, I'm amazed.  I've spent lots of time over the last 20 months reading this site so thought I'd submit my symptoms in case they help anyone!

CD 2-6 Clomid
CD 17 and 18 OPK positive and scan showed 2 mature follicles, EWCM
1-8 dpo Nothing
9 dpo Constant lower back ache, small amount white CM
10 dpo Lower back ache continues
11 dpo Mild ovarian pain on both sides, groin and upper thigh pain, breats starting to feel sore.  These were EXACTLY the same symptoms I get before af arrives, was convinced she was on her way
12 dpo CM completely dries up, sharp twinges in ovaries, breasts hurt
13 dpo Skin breaks out in spots, af like cramps
14 dpo  No af, was 4 days late last month so presume she's late
15 dpo Mood plummets, feel irritable and teary, just like before af
16 - 19 dpo Occasional ovarian twinges, breasts no worse, dry CM
20 dpo Breasts getting really sore now, too scared to test, still convinced af is coming although PMS symptoms have reduced
21 dpo Finally do a test, got BFP straight away!
22 dpo Very sore bbs!!  Low grade nausea creeping in.

We've been ttc for 20 months, we were eventually prescribed clomid and it worked first time round, much to our amazement.  We're so grateful to God and it's the best Christmas present we could have hoped for.

Our BFP after 10 months TTC and 1st round of Clomid

I can't believe we finally got our BFP!!!!!!  We have been TTC for 10 months and this month was our first round of Clomid 50mg.  I never thought I would see the lovely "Pregnant" on the pee stick!!!!  My DH and I charted to the "T" when I ovulated using OPKs and cm.  We BD every other day up untill the day before ovulation then we did it that day and twice on O day (in the a.m. and the p.m.)  We also used pre-seed and I took 2 teaspoons of robitussin 3 times a day starting at CD10 all the way up untill I ovulated.
The day before I ovulated I took an OPK and it was positive we BD
O day I OPK in the am still positive BD
O day I retested in the pm still positive we BD again
O day before bed tested a third time negative so we were pretty sure it was perfect timing.
I had no symptoms at all nothing up untill yesterday when we got our BFP!!!!
I had no excess cm or smelly pee or twinges or belly button pulling or acne or anything.  I had nothing!!!!!
Now I'm a little bloated, my BBs are very very sensitive, slight nausea, cramping, and dairrhea.  This is my second pregnancy we have a 5 year old son who is very excited.  We are very blessed and pray for a happy healthy 9 months!  Baby dust to all don't stress about not having any symptoms not everyone does.

BFP at 10dpo 2nd round of Clomid!

A little background.  DH and I have been TTC #1 for 10 months.  I have endometriosis and possibly PCOS, plus I am a LITTLE overweight.  I had a chemical back in August when I got a bfp at 8dpo but it was gone by 10dpo evening.  This cycle was my second cycle on Clomid 50mg days 3-7.  I went in for an ultrasound on CD 14 and they saw one dominant follie on my right at 16mm.  I ovulated CD 16 and BDed CD 13, 14, and 16.  After each time I propped by butt on a pillow for at least 30 min.  Here were my symptoms
1dpo- Nothing but cramping, had INTENSE O cramps and they continued for a few days after I Oed
2dpo- Cramping
3dpo- Cramping, super emotional, cried at night
4dpo- Cramping, cried at night
5dpo- Cramping, slight breast pain, cried again (oh and the crying continues)
6dpo- Cramping, BBs sore, went to a bar and had 3 drinks...got in a argument with DH, cried yet again, threw up...maybe just from being upset?
7dpo- INTENSE cramping. Usually after O I only cramp from the side I ovulated from.  Today I notice serious cramping on both sides...thinking this was implantation
8dpo- Cramping and sore bbs
9dpo- Cramping, sore nipples, was flying home from visiting family for Thanksgiving this day...tested fmu and BFN
10dpo-  Cramping...wake up and test with a FRER...thought I saw a faint line but half asleep.  Go to take the pups outside and bring the test with me...Look in outside light and there is totally a faint line...don't really believe it so I hold my pee for 3 hours and test with an Answer instead and up pops a bright pink line. BFP!
11dpo-  Test again and line is darker!  Starting to feel nausea already. AF like cramps.  Get beta and it is 28!
12dpo-  AF due but doesn't show, feeling cramping and zinging in my nipples. Puke twice.  (I just KNEW I would be one who got terrible nausea right away) Multiples BFPs! Very vivid dreams
13dpo-  My line on my test today is as dark as control!  Finally take a digi too and it reads: Pregnant!  Get repeat beta and it is 72! Still cramping!

We are praying this baby sticks!!!!  I prayed every night and every morning and truly believe God answered my prayers!  We feel so blessed.  My symptoms were almost the same for every other cycle except for the fact that I began cramping on BOTH sides...I always cramp because of my endo, but they were that much more intense this month.  Good luck ladies!

BFP after one year of trying! :)

TTC baby #2, 5th cycle of Clomiphene on 150mg days 2-6 because of PCOS, used OPK and got LH surge CD 17, estrogen day 12 was 672 pg/ml and progesterone day 22 was 57.3 ng/ml

1-3 DPO No symptoms

4 DPO nausea and really heightened sense of smell (keep smelling cat pee that no one else can smell!), odd twangs in uterus, creamy CM, funny taste in mouth, CD 22 Progesterone level today was high but I had a little bit of spotting in evening (hopefully implantation spotting and not early AF?)
5 DPO odd twangs in uterus, thirsty and need to pee more, vivid dreams, creamy CM, funny taste in mouth
6 DPO lower back pain, thirsty and need to pee more, vivid dreams, creamy CM, high cervix, acne
7 DPO still high cervix, acne, lower back pain and thirsty (dry mouth) and peeing a lot - but no nausea since day 4, BFN first thing using Oracle Fertility Tests (say detect from 10mIU/ml hCG level so from 7 DPO). No sore bbs but hoping maybe with 2nd child you don't get the same sore bbs like I had with first?! Aerolas may be a bit darker - wish had taken pre-photos so can compare as can't remember what they looked like now....
8 DPO BFN first thing in morning. Just thirsty today and a little bit sore around my pelvic area. In evening got the faintest of faint second line on pregnancy test.... evaporation line or actual line?
9 DPO faint second line again.... Sore pelvic region - feel like I'm being stretched down there (tmi!?), headaches, sleepy, very emotional.
10 DPO faint second line but looking darker. Been hungry and tired with sore pelvic region again but not much else.
11 DPO Went in for bloods first thing - Hcg level 81! BFP!! :)

What we did different - used OPK TWICE daily and did LOTS of BD'ing around LH surge and for 48 hours after. Then I have been taking it pretty easy since O day - no overly vigorous exercise etc. Nothing else different.

I know what a hard journey it can be and I'm so grateful to be pregnant again. Some months I had symptoms that were pretty similar to these - but never as many at once. Baby dust to you all!

symptoms

I finally got my bfp!

I have pcos and this was my third four of clomid. Ovulation days 1-9 I had no symptoms.  I didn't even know I ovulated. I had done opks everyday none came out positive and I didn't see on my chart that ovulation was detected! The. Day of our anniversary I saw on my fertility friend chart ovulation was detected on day 20. I was for sure I missed my chance until I saw that. My temps remained high. Then on day 34 of my cycle I had ewcm and my temp was higher. I thought oh no, my chart was wrong I didn't ovulate. Either way I wasn't testing till day 38. I started getting sore nipples around the same time, I just figured it was from ovulation. Then the sides started to hurt, not bad but almost like I was punched. I figured it was in my head and just cause I couldn't bare another negative I held out till day 28. Yesterday morning I took the test bfp!  I couldn't believe it.

So to everyone reading this don't five up hope! Baby dust!!!!!!
