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 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!
13 DPO Still Pregnant! Wonder how many I'll have......

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
