BFP Stories

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 with 50mg Clomid, cd 5-9

I heard you were looking for BFP stories while taking clomid so here's mine TTC#2, 1st month 50 mg cd 5-9!!

We were TTC#2. It took us five years to conceive the first time, and sadly I miscarried at 10 weeks. I had been on and off clomid that whole time. Well, five months after the miscarriage we concieved DD!!!
Since it took us soo long to get DD here, we decided not to use BCP. Well, after she turned 14 months and I had only had one period, I thought I would try the clomid route again. I just had a feeling that I would get pregnant right away, but did want to jinx anything.

Now, I know it is technically impossible to have any symptoms before implantation occurs, I swear I started having symptoms earlier then that. Maybe it was just my body being prepped or perhaps s/e from clomid, who knows?? Here they are:

1DPO Migraine (VERY unusual for me)
2-8DPO VERY hungry, empty pit in my stomach, slight nausea
2-8DPO Slight headaches all the time
3-5DPO Sore throat, runny nose (thought it was allergies)
5-8 DPO AF like cramping sometimes general sometimes specific to one area
6-7DPO Yellow (snot-like sorry TMI), CM
6-8 DPO SLIGHTLY tender bbs, mostly on the sides and nipples
9 DPO cramping increases, then goes away
10PO I decided to test...I thought I saw a faint line
11DPO tested again....a little bit darker
12 DPO DEFINITE BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13-15 DPO cramping returns, I think AF is coming. It still hasn't completely gone away(21DPO)

I am 21 DPO still hungry all the time and pretty tired. My bbs aren't very sore....still mainly just the nipples and under my armpits???!! I'm still having a lot of creamy CM and sometimes the yellow cm. I am being cautiously optimistic that this one will stick!!!

BFP with Clomid/HCG Trigger/IUI

I finally am willing to make the big announcement - I'm pregnant! Yesterday would have been my 23 month anniversary of ttc. I got my beta numbers from yesterday back at 275! Can you tell I'm excited?

There are a couple of things everyone always wants to know when someone announces a pregnancy: What did you differently and What were/are your symptoms?

What we did differently

Everything!
-We did a Clomid/Repronex cycle
-hCG shot
-IUI (#2 - our first IUI was w/ just Clomid)
-added yams to my diet
-added avocado to DH's diet
-completely stopped eating sugar
-drank decaf green tea instead of the full-caff white tea for CM
-used pre-seed (we've done this for several months)
-did NOT use Instead cups (we'd done that for about nine months)
-HSG was done on April 13, so still w/in the 3 mos of increased fertility post HSG
-BDed a LOT. Even when we were sure we were past O date, we continued to BD
-used fertility monitor instead of OPKs

Symptoms

Honestly, I've had so many terrible s/e from Clomid, I can't tell you which symptoms I had/have were Clomid or Repronex related and which weren't, but here's a list:

-very thirsty
-bloated
-frequent urination
-very bad AF type cramps
-lower back pain
-oily skin
-pimples on my shoulders and bumps on my upper arms (never had this happen before)
-smell of coffee, which I love, makes me sick
-smell of chocolate, which I love, makes me sick
-craving salty foods (I hate salty foods normally)

BFP with Clomid & Irregular Cycles

You won't believe what happened to me... my DH and I were trying to concieve for more than a year, but because of my irregular cycles (sometimes every 50 or 60 days) it was so hard...then we decided last cycle to try clomid... yesterday I was 12 DPO and I was getting on my nerves cuz for the last couple of months I was having these symptoms that I thought were PG symtoms and then at the end I used to get my AF...

So yesterday I was so so depressed and tired of waiting and waiting... then I checked this site for the first time and I was surprised to find many stories similar to mine and I read many symptoms that I was already having and was trying to convince myself that it was just my imagination like every month... I almost read every single story in this site and after I was done I had that strange feeling that there could be something this time so i got the HPT today in the morning and guess what???? i got a faint BFP then I had to be sure so i took the serum HCG and it was still ++++++++++++ andI am now 4 weeks...

Anyway , here are my symptoms...some symptoms were new and others I used to have every month (of course part of my PMS)

3DPO i had slight cramp
4DPO through BFP test date - I had:

* excessive watery CM
* raised BBT (and still going up..)
* lower abdominal cramps
* pinching on my right pelvic side
* not actual nausea but slight discomfort after meals
* constipation and bloating sensation most of the day
* mood swinging
* and I woke up twice in the morning with orgasm (that was my first time when I checked this site to know that vivid dreams can be a PG sign)

I hope this will help, girls don't give up, keep trying, keep praying, GOD is good, if I could do it with my irregular cycles you could do it... best wishes to all....

BFP Symptoms - Clomid/IUI

I just received a BFP through my first IUI + Clomid and was monitored very carefully by my doctor. I had ultrasounds and bloodwork 3X per week to monitor for OHSS and to count the number of follicles to avoid insemination with too many eggs (reduced chance of high-order multiples).

My early pg symptoms:
1 - 6 dpiui - nothing
7 dpiui - constipation, this continues
8 dpiui - nothing, tested BFN
9 dpiui - felt a funny cramp in my right side, almost a 'poking' feeling but kind of painful. Had the same poking feeling again later the same day.
10 dpiui - sore bb's (I don't ususally get this before AF)
11 dpiui - more sore bb's, AF cramps, was convinced AF was starting, woke up 2X in the night to pee
12 dpiui - tested with FMU, definite BFP on FRER HPT. Beta in 2 days
