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.

Month 4 Clomid

We had been trying for over a year and on month 4 of Clomid, and I had all but completely given up. Register, I discounted any symptoms I had (had them all before and gotten AF). Then, I decided to test before I had a weekend of drinks and BFP!! I'm still shocked, even on meds it was the last thing I expected.

1-8 dpo: felt nauseous, emotional (thought it was in my head)
9 dpo: bumped head (didn't hurt) and cried without knowing why
10 dpo: tested to see if I could drink and BFP. Shaking, can't believe it!
11 dpo: hungry! And tired...a little worried because few other symptoms
12 dpo: the sore BBs have arrived, hungry, tired, weird tummy growls, take another test because still in shock, definite BFP!

I have a doc appt 14 dpo, wish me luck!

BFP with first Clomid/IUI cycle

This month was our first IUI/Clomid cycle for male factor (6-7% morphology). We have been ttc our first baby for 12 months. I am 30, dh is 31.

My Clomid experience was very unusual as I felt terrific while taking it on cd 5-9 but horrible for a few days afterwards. I lost several clumps of hair and had very depressing thoughts. I had cramps, especially from my left ovary, from the first day I started Clomid, through the IUI, finally stopping on 4 dpiui.

This cycle was clearly different, as I hardly had any symptoms compared to what I normally get...

cd 5-O = cramps started
cd 13-13 = detect LH surge through OPK
cd 15 = IUI
1-4 dpiui = cramping, esp from the left ovary
5-7 dpiui = very odd and real dreams, very fatigued, somewhat irritable, lots of CM, constipated, dizzy when I turn my head quickly
8dpiui = tons of energy, happy, CM continues
9dpiui = very faint BFP on Equate brand HPT (only reason I tested this early was because I was getting on a plane and needed to know if I could take motion sickness meds)
no energy, irritable, pulling cramps, one very strong vaginal cramp that went down leg, bb's starting to ache - not as much as a usual cycle, dizzy at times
10dpiui = another faint BFP on Equate, went to buy Clearblue Easy brand and still a BFP, lots of CM
11dpiui = darker BFP on Clearblue

We have been using preseed, dh sat on cold packs and took multivitamin, bd every two days throughout cycle

What we did differently this cycle: went completely vegan (found out animal products contain so many hormones that it is bad for us and baby, we have just decided to raise the baby vegan), added IUI and Clomid.

BFP with 4th cycle of Clomid

BFP with 4th cycle of Clomid, Very few Symptoms

This was my fourth cycle of Clomid and I had given up this month. I had gone to an RE who was going to start me on Femara as soon as af showed. Also, I've been having short luteal phases (7-9 days) and I didn't O this month until cd18 (af was due on cd25) so I figured conceiving was impossible.

cd13 & 15: BD (This was it... I was working long hours and was just going to wait out this cycle so I could start on the new medicine)

cd18: O day
cd25 (7dpo): af is due, tons of cramps but no af
8dpo: Cramping, sometimes "stabbing" pains, other times dull and achy
9dpo: POAS, BFN of course. I'm mad at the clomid because I figure it thinned my uterine lining out so much that I can't even get a period now.
10dpo: Same cramps, lots of creamy cm. POAS in the am (but after working 3rd shift), BFN. Later, I wake up around noon and POAS-- Very Faint Line!!!!! Later that night, I pee on a digital and it reads "Pregnant"!!!!
11-15dpo: Bloated! I'm already unbottoning my pants (I have been blessed with a TINY waist, but it's so swollen I can barely button my pants!). Still cramping off and on, TONS of cm. That's it. My bb's don't hurt and I'm not the least bit nauseous.

My 13dpo Hcg test came back at 297!!!! We have always used Preseed and Prayer!

BFP 5th cycle of Clomid/IUI

5th cycle of Clomid/IUI

No symptoms until 11 DPO

o 9DPO tested super early and got a very very very faint line, could hardly see it, my DH couldn’t see it. So I just figured it was a evaporated line or the HCG trigger (Ovidril) trigger shot that was still in my system.
o 11DPO another very faint line, could hardly see it
o 12 DPO another very faint line – sensitive nipples
o 13 DPO went to lunch with my boss, he had a glass of cognac across the table and I could smell it so strong like it was under my nose, I think that is when I really believed I was pregnant. So that was a good enough reason to go to the store after lunch and buy another HPT, it was a faint very visible line (PRAISE THE LORD) so I called my doctor and they sent me to get a blood test, results came back positive HCG level at 31! Could not believe it was in a major shock!
o 14DPO went in for another blood test to make sure HCG is going up, it came back at 45, which was good, but the nurse wanted me to go get another one at 17DPO.
o Still no major symptoms
o 17DPO Blood test came back at 112, kinda worried because it doubled at 72 hours which is on the minimum end.
o 18DPO very sore breasts and nipples can’t stand my bra on. Feeling some type of pressure in my stomach, similar to being bloated.

Baby dust to everyone out there that is TTC, my prayers go out to you. Keep a positive attitude and believe!

BFP 1st Round Clomid

I got my BFP today! Here is my story

I have really long 45-60 day cycles.? It took my 6 months to get pregnant with number #1, because I didn't get my period for 6 months and I concevied as soon as I ovulated. Well this time I tried clomid and the first month DH was out of town when I ovulated. So I made sure he would be home for month #2.? Well I ovulated on day 17, bd'd on 16,17, 2x on 18, 19 and 20. And today is cycle day 27 and I got a super faint positive! I took the test and actually threw it away because I thought it was negative. I then took a nap with my 1 year old and had a dream that the test was positive. So I took it out of the trash and low and behold... it was positive! Looking back now, I did have some major signs that I was preggo.? Cycle days 25 and 26 I started craving salt and my appetite went through the roof! I ate a whole huge dill pickle and then for dinner at a burger, fries and a cupcake!! I never eat that much! Also yesterday I woke up feeling super nauseous and continued to feel that all day and after I ate lunch.. thought I would barf! We are so excited our babes are going to be 20 months apart! Keep trying.. and good look to all ! Clomid is soo great if you are just having irregular cycles! First month worked for me!!

BFP with Clomid - 1st Round!

1-6 dpo-Mood swings Wet CM, Creamy CM -ive tests, urinary tract infection, lots of crampy back and front pains (think is due to UTI, took cranberry juice and antibiotics (told Dr I may be preg, so she gave me preg ok antibiotics) pain goes away. BFN

7dpo-Woke up feeling starving to the point of nausea. Have a banana - it goes away, then keeps coming back through out the day. Breasts have swollen double their usual size, and starting to feel so tired that I go to bed at 9pm. Continues until today! BFN

8dpo-Love tuna, but today nearly makes me sick....craving chocolate orange muffins

9dpo-Hot in bed, vivid dreams, nipples sensitive when I brush past them- really annoyed as I keep getting BFN!

10dpo-12 BFN. Grumpy- maybe cos I'm so tired all the time, also constipated. Stomach keeps cramping when I eat certain foods. Slight increase in sense of smell. ~Getting really upset cos keep getting BFN

13 dpo Decided that I don't care what the preg test says I AM PREGNANT! Have to be with all the sickness (feeling so hungry in the pit of my stomach that I will be sick if I don't eat something ) and huge breasts! BFN taken test in afternoon Tearful

14dpo- wake up feeling better and think my breasts have shrunk back to original size? (period to start tomorrow) feel abit upset that I got it wrong yesterday. Found an OPK in the bottom of the draw and did this am - faint line ... run to husband to get him to check... he can see it too... Yay BFP!

BFP on our 12th month Anniv TTC

Hi I cant believe i can finally tell you about this. I am 28 and have been on the pill for 11 years with no breaks so I thought it might be difficult to concieve. Myself and Hubbie have been trying since august 06 and went through many ups and downs, trying to time it, trying to read the signs.My cycles were ranging from 45 days to 60 days so I was prescribed Clomid after hubbie had normal results on sperm test and I had all clear from HSG. Eventually I got my BFP! exactly to the day 12 months down the line on our wedding anniversary toO, can you believe it!

Here goes;
1-6DPO NOTHING, normally get boob pain but had absolutely nothing, thought that was a positive sign.
6dpo- now sore boobs at the sides mainly nipples look swollen.
7dpo- really gassy, very smelly (sorry tmi)
8dpo- couldnt resist did ovulation test as i know you can detect hcg with them, got a strong result but not a positive.
9dpo -Gums bled when i brushed them in am only, boobs still sore, white heads on chin in am.
10dpo- did another ovulation test very strong result even darker than the other day, did another one 7 hours later even darker almost positive!!!!
11dpo- Couldnt wait any longer bought First response 2 pack test did it with first morning urine i had saved in a glass (have chucked glass out) got BFP in 10 seconds, ran round house screamed , phoned hubbie told him, screamed again.
12dpo - Did another test positive again, did digital so i could see the word, said pregnant in 15 seconds!!!!!!!! WE HAVE FINALLY DONE IT.

Feeling fine now but bloated cant wait until i have actually missed my period on sunday think it will finally feel real then. By the way I used preseed this cycle, have used it twice before but this time we baby danced day before ov, and day after. We usually missed day after in previous cycles.

BFP with Clomid, Preseed & Meditation

Its been a very long road but I finally have my BFP! My husband and I have been TTC for 2 years and 4 months. Your website has been a source of sound advice and inspiration! I have previously tried clomid and accupunture without success. I read the Harvard Med School Book "Six Steps to Increased Fertility" and was very impressed by the rates of pregnancy achieved through meditation classes. Starting in April, I took an 8 wk mindfulness meditation class which helped significantly with my stress level. We decided to take a 3 month hiatus from my job as a physician and try Clomid again before moving on to see REI in October. If I had not been reading TWW I would not have tested as early as I did, which allowed me to start eating the best possible diet as soon as I knew I was pregnant!

This is what I did differently:

--Meditated and Prayed Daily
--Temped (first time ever)
--Clomid 100mg Days 3-7
--Drank Iced Green Tea D1 -D15
--No caffeine except green tea since D4
--Preseed (first cycle trying this!)
--No robitussin, just drank water until urine was clear
--BD daily from day 9 through positive OPK (D15) and for 3 days after
--Reflexology and massage D17 and D25

Early Pregnancy Symptoms:
--- D14 EWCM and Cramping
--D15 positive OPK, severe cramping
--D18 mild gassy abdominal cramping
--D19 gassy cramping, vomited x 1
--D26 (10 DPO) Spotting (light brown mucus), vomited x 1, lower abdomen hurst with laughing/stretching
--D27 Spotting (very light). +HPT (answer)
--D28 Blood BHCG 132
D29 on, increasing bloating, gas, constipation, vomiting in afternoon on some days.

Thanks!!!!!!!!

BFP at 9dpo wtih Digital HPT! (Clomid Cycle)

This is dh and my third round of clomid. I was SO shocked to see a DARK BFP at 9dpo and then 'pregnant' with clearblue digital. God is so good! After our first m/c in October this had been a hard, emotional journey but we made it! Keep up the faith no matter how tough it seems.

1-8 DPO: Very sore, swollen bbs. They hurt deep in the muscle and tissue.

6-8 DPO: Small amounts of cm that was like ewcm.

8 DPO: Sensitive to normal smells that usually don't bother me like hand wipes and tuna fish. When I gagged at the hand wipes, my dh looked at me and said, 'you're pregnant aren't you'

9 DPO: Dark BFP on frer (fmu) with another BFP with clearblue digital with second morning urine.

Hope this help. I love reading early pg symptoms. They have kept me for occupied for hours! ;-)

BFP, 4th month, 200mg Clomid cd 3-7

We have been TTC #1 for about 10 months and I just got my BFP tonight!!! I was taking Clomid, 4th 'month' 200mg cd 3-7. I was placed on clomid because of my horrendously long cycles - 120+ days - and had mixed results. I ovulated the first time (100mg), did not ovulate the second (100mg), finally ovulated the 3rd time(150mg) but a month late. My OB-GYN hiked the dose up to 200 mg this past month and I ovulated - but about a week later than expected.

Here are the symptoms that I noticed:

0DPO-now - nips hurt/extra sensitive (normal after ovulating - usually stops right before AF)
5DPO - felt a sharp pain in the middle of my lower abdomen (implantation maybe???)
7DPO-now - the sides and underneaths of my bb's HURT...this is much earlier than normal
10DPO-now - random 'stretchy' feelings in my stomach, different feeling from cramps
15DPO - today - BFP!!!! Took 2 HPTs - got 2 pink lines and "PREGNANT" reading

What really started to make me think I might be preg. is the hurting bb's...since going off BCP, they rarely hurt at all and usually just a day before AF arrives. Thank God! This been a total miracle, as my cycles were completely messed up and my hubby has a lower count. Still SOOOOOOO excited - good luck to all who are trying - it felt like SUCH a LONG road...even though it was only 10 months.

God Bless!
