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.

Late BFP with 50mg Clomid, cd 5-9

I can't even believe I am writing this! After 10 months and 7 cycles we finally got our BFP yesterday afternoon!!!! FF says I was 16 DPO, but I believe I was actually 14 or 15. I had gotten a BFN 3 days before.

After having crazy long cycles, this was my 1st cycle on 50 mg Clomid, days 5 - 9.

I just called my drs office and I'm going over at lunch for a quantitative HCG and progesterone level. DH keeps reminding me to be "cautiously optimistic" until we get the bloodwork, but I can't help it! I am just so excited!

As far as symptoms, the only things I feel yet are some cramping that started a few days ago - especially at night in bed. My BBs feel fuller and are slightly tender, but not super sore. And I've had this crazy itching, mostly on my BBs, stomach and back. I just read in one of my PG books that generalized itchiness can be a sign of PG! Who knew??? I'm also having some very mild nausea on and off.

BFP with Endo/Clomid cd 2-7, HCG Trigger

About three years ago I was having problems about every 6 months with severe pain in my side. The first time was in the summer and I tried to go running but couldn't b/c my side hurt then it hurt worse and worse. So my OB said it must have been a ruptured cyst.
Then the night of my college graduation part I had sharp pains and went up to the bathroom and just got really hot then cold and just kinda fell to the floor. I was taken to the ER only to find that I had a ruptured cyst... so they said...So days later i was still very ill couldn't eat or walk...so they thought I was having an appendicitis (SP)...so the Surgeon who did my surgury found the appendix was fine that I just had some blood from yup a ruptured cyst. Cleaned me up and off I went... Then again 6 months later it happened again. I was very ill for about three weeks and my OB had scheduled a lap to explore for that dreaded word ENDO!

So I never made it to lap date I went to the ER where my OB was about two weeks early I couldn't take it anymore. They found my bowel had formed lesions to my ovaries. I had endo on my left ovary in many spots and then only one spot on the right.

So since we weren't married yet we were getting married in Oct and this was Aug. We decided to go with Lupron Depot and what a mistake that was, the horrible side effects!!!

So we started ttc in February 05. But as soon as the lupron wore off I had major pain all over again. So I went to an RE b/c my OB wasn't really answering any of my questions. He just told me to take pain killers.

So the first RE I went to didn't really love and I felt like they just had everyone on a schedule so we did two medicated clomid cycles with IUI with them and then I found my new RE whom i love.

He explained that I had a LPD from my charts of irratic temps it was obvious. And that we could get preggers on our own but it would be faster if medicated and try IUIs.

So his orders clomid from CD2-7, HCG Trigger, HCG boosters on 3dpo and 6dpo and progestrone suppositories 2dpo on....

so after a total of 6 medicated cycles and 4 iuis here we are preggers.

we got preggers on our own no IUI we decided to try since the IUI would be on a Monday morning traffic is horrible to get to downtown Baltimore from PA...and what do you know we are preggers...

My advice be aggressive!!! Time is your fertility with Endo!!! If you think your OB is not as knowledgable as you might want go to an RE they do this as their living and know what they are doing!!!

BFP with Clomid/IUI, after Miscarriage

After conceiving easily this past summer, but then sadly miscarrying at 10 weeks in October, my husband and I struggled to get pregnant a second time. After a few months of trying I went an RE who put me on Clomid. It worked the first time!

I was on my frist round of Clomid (100 mg day 3 & 4 and 50 Mg days 5- 7) and had an IUI on 15 DPO (because my cm was too thick), the day I Ovulated.

I am delighted to finally be able to share my symptoms with you after spending many months reading everybody else's!

4 DPO/DPIUI - sharp, stabbing pain in left side, sizeable amount of CM
5 DPO/IUI - sharp stabbing pains in left and right side, sizeable amount of CM
6 DPO/IUI - stabbing pains continued alternately on both sides, they were like sharp cramps, still a lot of CM
7 DPO/IUI - temp shot from about 97.8 - 98.6, still sharp pains, especially when I moved a lot for example: bending over to put my shoes on, still more CM than usual, temp staying around 98.6
8 DPO/IUI - still had the pains, but now they were dull and crampy and not as often, still a decent amount of CM, it was kind of thick and chunky with a yellowish tint, temp still lingering around 98.6
9 DPO/IUI - still had the pains, but fewer of them, still had decent amount of CM, temp still around 98.6
10 DPO/IUI Lingering pains, fewer and farther between, temp still at 98.6, less CM, but still obviously there... broke down and took a test - BFN, could not have been more negative
11 DPO/IUI Woke up with terrible headache behind my right eye. It lasted all day, I never get headaches, so I thought maybe perhaps this is a sign, still had the cramps but now they were dull, temp still at 98.6
12 DPO/IUI tested again, again BFN, temp still right around 98.6, not as much cm, felt like I was getting my period, crampy and crying all day
13 DPO/IUI Woke up and temped 98.6... BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasn't super dark but it was a shade darker than faint. It was definitely there, not as much cm today, very tired, not very crampy, so happy that no matter how much pain I had I wouldn't have been able to feel it
14 DPO/IUI Super bright BFP this morning, temp still at 98.6, went to dr who confirmed it - HCG 160, Progesterone: 26. The nurse said those numbers are wonderful!!!

I say a prayer everynight that this pregnancy ends on a happier note than the last and I spread baby dust and best wishes to you all!

BFP with Clomid/IUI - 38 yrs old

I have been TTC for 2 1/2 yrs. Started Clomid and IUI in 2004

I had IUI 03-08-2006.

The 2WW was so long for me. I felt though that things were going to be good this time around. Other than the fact that I prayed all the time, I knew that God was in it and this was my 3rd IUI. I just felt ready and positive. I had sore bb's from 10dpiui and it just got worse.
11dpiu - I felt like I was counting every minute.Had slight cramps and bb's still hurting
12dpiui - I told myself I had to relax and wait it out.Of course, I did not. Got BFN
13dpiui - I finally could not wait anymore and decided to test. Got a very faint line and I said nothing to my husband as I wanted to be sure.
14dpiui - I finally decided to test again and immediately called my doctor. First thing I told him was that my boobs are major sore and I feel this is it.
I am now 17dpiui and yes it's still hurting but I am too excited to let sore bb's get me down.
I have an ultrasound scheduled for April 5.
Thank you for the positive info and I want to wish everybody well and hope that they all stay positive and pray and ask God for that little miracle to happen.
Blesings and baby dust to all.
From a very excited 38yr old!

BFP with Clomid, cd 3-7

Hello, here were my symptoms and my story....
2nd Cycle of Clomid

Cycle Day 3-7 took clomid, and got minimum cramps, but had headaches (much better than first cycle)
Cycle Day 14, I detected my surge
Cycle Day 15, surge was still there, but fading
Cycle Day 16, surge was gone
Cycle Day 19-21 I felt alot of cramps (Ovulating)
Cycle Day 22, I went to the doctors office and had my progesterone checked (It was 27) The prior month is was only 17. My Doctor advised me I may be pregnant, and If I wasn't I should definetely get pregnant next month.
Cycle Day 23-28, I had mad food craves for popeyes chicken and temperature stayed high.

Cycle Day 15-16 I Ovulated for sure! (my temp was elevated to 98.2-98.8)

7 DPO: was when I had my progesterone levels tested and they were high (27) This would have been after implantation.

8-10 DPO I had mad food craves for popeyes chicken and my temperature stayed high. My normal temperature is 97.7 (my temp was elevated to 98.2-98.8) and still has not went down.

10-12 DPO: Tested, but got BFN.... I was so disappointed...My breast are really sore and I have blue, greenish veins going across my breast and chest.

13-14 DPO: Tested, still got BFN..... My period was due of day 14, but nothing....Having slight headaches and breast still really sore. Been having hot flashes and nausea also.

15 DPO: Tested with first response, got faint BFP.....I just knew it would be negative, so I took it and walked out of the bathroom to finish getting dressed. I came back in moments later and saw a faint line (BFP)....I screamed and woke my husband up....He said "what's wrong?" I said I'm pregnant....He wanted to see, but you could barely see it...

So I went out to Wal-greens and bought a clearblue easy digital, walgreens digital, and answer HPT....I came home and took all of them along with a dollar tree test, and they all said pregnant...(Dollar Tree test was really,really faint).

I went to the Primary Dr's office later that afternoon to confirm...My Urine came back BFN....I was like, oh my GOD what is going on....My Dr. said not to panic and sent me to a Baptist lab to have my Blood drawn (Quant...Serum) Got BFN..... I was so stressed and depressed for the rest of the day....I could not work at all... It did not make any sense....

I called my OBGYN, and he said he didn't know what to tell me, the blood test is more accurate. I said, but I took, 7 different HPT....He said the blood test should be correct and go with that result.

He called me back a few hours later and said, he thought about it; and that the levels of the lab who took the blood tests could have been off and set to high...I asked him about the Dr's office urine results, he said, it could be the same case...He wanted me to come in that day to be tested with urine by him and he would also send me to their lab to draw his own blood work...

I went to see him at 8:30am the next morning, the urine came back BFP....He said great!, lets check your blood, to make sure there's nothing in your urine giving you false positives....I took the Quant. Blood Test and got BFP, again........Yeah!!!!

So we are pregnant, and hoping for a GIRL! Due June 27, 2007....

Ladies if a Dr. tells you you're not pregnant, and you feel like you are, get a 2nd opinion....Some Dr's and Labs can be wrong...Even the blood test!

Good Luck, and Baby Dust to you ALL!!

BFP with Clomid 50mg, cd 5-9 & PCOS

My name is Cheryl and my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for about a year. We had tried to conceive naturally for while and then my husband suggested we get tested. My husband’s tests came back normal whereas mine came back with hormone level issues, possible PCOS. Tested to see if I was ovulating and it looked like I wasn’t.

I was put on Clomid 50mg, days 5-9, for the first time this cycle. I used fertilityfriend.com to chart my temps and it looked like I ovulated cd18. I had tried the OPKs but they never showed a surge. Blood work done at cd23 showed that I did indeed ovulate. As the month went along I had ovulation type pains and cramps that were off and on for about a week, then it went away. I started feeling little changes in my body such as the enlarged breasts and the frequent urination but it was too soon to test, so I kept being optimistic and waited. I finally took and HPT on cd29 and it was positive, faint but positive. I was scared because I thought that it was just too much to hope for on the first try.

I tested a couple more times the following day and finally went in for a blood test on cd30. It came back the next day as POSITIVE!! This also happened to be a day before our anniversary so it was an awesome present to say the least. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and so thankful for my little miracle. As for the Clomid I had very little side effects, mainly hot flashes in the night. It did the trick for ovulation. The only other thing we did differently is use Preseed for the first time. Thanks again to all the ladies who contributed their stories. It was very encouraging to read them all. Good luck and baby dust to all!!!

BFP with 100mg Clomid, cd 5-9 & Robitussin

I can't believe I get to post here, finally, I am still in total shock about the whole thing! First of all I took a ept last night at like 9:30, and it came up with in like 3 minutes so in total shock, I took a equate and sure enough around 10 minutes later faint +. I retested this AM with a equate, and ept and +, and faint + again! OMG, I mean THANK YOU GOD! I just hope this little one sticks. I couldn't have stayed sain if it weren't for my "Cycle Sister's" givining me unmeasurable amounts of support through all of it. Thank you guys soooo much.

Symptoms:
From on I had AF cramps
8dpo - now sore bb's
8dpo - now major hunger pains.
(TMI) 9dpo I had greenish cm

I was on 100mg Clomid days 5-9, and I was sick, and took Robitussin the week before.

Faint BFP at 9dpo - Clomid cycle

This was my 2nd month on clomid and I wrote everything down so I would know what to expect next month. I thought if I knew ALL the nasty S/E from clomid, I wouldn't be tricked by the IPS!
SO here it goes.

1DPO: Had a migraine Headache (nothing real unusual for me, I get them when I have increased progesterone)
2DPO: Nothing (maybe a little bloating)
3DPO: Woke up with a nasty taste in my mouth. YUCK!
4DPO: bloated a little
5DPO: creamy CM
6DPO: Nothing noted
7DPO: boobs are a little tender, which is really weird becasue they are usually tender after O, and then get less tender about a week before AF! And now they are just barley getting tender, I was afraid that I didn't really O.
8DPO: Feeling a little off, EWCM again, means AF will be here soon. Very tired and having to pee alot.
9DPO: Took an Answer Early HPT and it has a VERY VERY faint line on it. Don't beleive it. Lower back hurts a little. still have EWCM. still pee alot. still very tired.
10DPO: another Answer Early HPT positive and darker then yesterday! Clear Blue Easy HPT also positive. Still very tired.
11DPO: AE still positve and CBE digital gave me a "pregnant" reading! tired and my bb's are tender now to the touch.
12DPO: positive blood test.

Looking back now I started to have weird cravings too around 8DPO and I was VERY VERY thirsty! I drink a ton of water anyways but I had to have a ton more then normal.

M/S didn't kick in until about 5 weeks 3 days Pg, although did have little bouts of nausea from about 4 weeks 3 days on.

BFP with Clomid and Donor Sperm

My DH and I have been TTC for a year. 2 months ago we found out my DH has a very LSC so we started using donor sperm. I have also been on Clomid 50mg days 5-9 for 2 cycles.

2DPO / CD 17 I am very nauseous!! I have an iron stomach and I feel like I might actually throw up.

7DPO / CD 21 I started cramping a little bit. Started this AM Temp is still up, other than that not many sx.

8DPO I am feeling low O pains, mostly on lower right side.

9DPO Definitely AF cramps. I feel moody and sad. AF is definitely looming
:-(

11dpo Spotted a very little bit of br blood at around 10a. I had cramps all day. I also had the usual day before my period blahs in the afternoon.

12dpo I am still cramping. I am going to start my period tomorrow I know it.

13dpo Earlier in the day I was crying for no reason. I was exhausted by 11a. Very faint +HPT at 3p!!!

14dpo darker, but still faint, +hpt with fmu!!!!!!! DH even saw this one. Test was 10mui. I do still have AF like cramps.

15dpo I have taken 11 test total and the lines are getting darker!! Called my OB/GYN and scheduled my 8 week u/s!

Things I did differently:

We used preseed. I love this stuff and I highly recommend trying it.

I tried to not obsess about every symptom... and I relaxed more.

I just have to say that this was the one cycle where I would have SWORN I was not pregnant! My cramps, moods, everything told me I was going to start my period. So don't give up hope ladies!!!

BFP with 100mg Clomid, cd 1-5

Hi! I just got my BFP two days ago and wanted to submit my story. Lord KNOWS this site helped me through MANY a TWW! I'm 31 and we have been TTC for 16 months after a tubal ligation reversal in March of '06. Here's what happened during my BFP cycle...

CD 1-5 100 mg of clomid
CD 8 HSG and my FIRST EVER EWCM!!!! We're SOO excited!
CD 10 Ultrasound monitoring because of clomid. 3, possibly 4 mature follies. HCG trigger shot. Ovulation should occur in 36-48 hours. EWCM!
RE warned we are EXTREMELY high risk of multiples.
CD 11 Ovulation day!!!!!! More EWCM!

Two Week Wait Symptoms!!!
1 DPO Watery CM. Nothing special.
2-3 DPO Dry CM. Nada.
4 DPO More EWCM. I've never had EWCM so this is something totally new for me. Wonder why it came AFTER O?
5-9 DPO VERY irritable. Snapped on DH almost everyday. I can't seem to help it, can't seem to keep my emotions in check! Slight nausea in the evenings and nipples feel like they are trying to pop off my chest!
10 DPO Took a IC, BFN of course.
11 DPO Temp spike made me wonder if this could be my month! IC test in the AM was neg., BFP on Fact Plus in the afternoon! Went today to get a beta and it was 17.5!!!!!
12 DPO Had to go get another beta that my RE ordered and it was 29!!
Less than 24 hours after the first!
