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 just in time for Christmas!

Hello ladies! I have been ttc baby #2 for 5 cycles and would stalk this site throughout them all to see if there were any symptoms I was experiencing that was similar to someone with a BFP. It's only right now that I have my BFP to share my symptoms for anyone else who may be looking to compare symptoms just as I was :) I am 32 and was diagnosed with PCOS with my first child. My doctor put me on 50 mg Clomid and I also took 500 mg of Metformin twice a day. Here were my symptoms:

1-4 DPO- Nothing really noticeable.
5 DPO- Irritable and very fatigued.
6 DPO- Irritable.. like even more short tempered (poor hubby) tired, and starting to experience some headaches throughout the day.
7 DPO - Still irritable, very tired - I am normally not a sleeper throughout the day but I am now barely making it through my work day without feeling like I need several naps. I am having to take naps on my breaks and lunches..headache. No tender boobs and I thought that was weird as with my other cycles I experienced tender boobs by 6 DPO and knew AF was coming.
8 DPO - Exhausted! While sitting at my desk at work I became very dizzy. This definitely has never happened to me with my other cycles! I did not want to stand up from fear of losing my balance because I was just that dizzy. Still experiencing some headaches, and some back twinges but not really painful. Still no tenderness in boobs! Weirdest symptom of all on this day was that all of a sudden I had globs of EWCM!! I only have experienced EWCM during my fertile week, normally on the days just before and day of ovulation so I was extremely confused!
9 DPO- Still experiencing globs of EWCM. No tender/sore boobs yet. Extremely fatigued and still experiencing some dizziness. Some shooting back pains but again, not really painful.
10 DPO- No longer experiencing EWCM. CM is now creamy consistency but there is more than I normally have around this time. Still tired and having some back twinges on and off all day. HUNGRY! Nothing I ate ever made me feel full. I always needed something else to eat on.
11 DPO- Finally starting to feel some tenderness in boobs, just on the sides. Tired, headache throughout the day. Still HUNGRY! AF has not shown up, so I decided to test in the morning if there is still no AF by the time I wake up.
12 DPO- Ofcourse I had a horrible night of sleep! Insomnia in full effect or it could be that my mind was racing just thinking about testing! I finally could no longer take it so at 2:30 am I tested using FRER and got a freakin BFP!!! I freaked out and could not believe my eyes!! Ofcourse, I tested again and again and again this time with some dollar store cheapies I had and all were BFP's too!!

I am now 6 weeks, 5 days pregnant and my symptoms have pretty much stayed the same. We shared the news with my family for Christmas and this was the best present I could have gotten! A few things I did not mention in my DPO's is that I did temp everyday and my basal temp stayed high but I know that the temps can vary from person to person so my high could be lower than someone else's. My temps would run from 98.25-98.45 with a temp dip on 8 DPO in which it was 97.98. It rose the next morning to 98.30 so I took it as that is when implantation was occurring and why I experienced the EWCM. I also checked my CP on and off throughout the whole process. By 9 DPO, my CP was very very high/closed/soft. I used OPK's and I did buy Pre-Seed because I read so many good stories about it but I don't think the Pre-Seed helped me conceive. I used it as directed with my last 4 cycles inserting it internally and nothing happened. For my 5th cycle, I only used it twice and this time I used very little externally and I conceived. Hopefully this all helps someone as much as some of the other posts helped me during my cycles. BABY DUST TO ALL!! :)

BFP first Clomid cycle after miscarriage

I had a missed miscarriage and D&E at 7w3d on September 5th. I do not ovulate regularly but I do not have PCOS, so my dr is really not sure why. I have taken 4 rounds of Clomid so far and conceived twice. I only had one cycle after my MMC (not counting the bleeding that resulted from the procedure), which was induced by Provera, but I had 3 months to recover, so my dr said to start trying again. LMP began Nov 22. I ovulated Dec 6 and, of course, my husband was on duty that day so we must have conceived from sex the night before ovulation.

The only symptoms I noticed were 2 days of AF-like cramping on 6 and 7 dpo and a lower back ache on 8dpo. I also was immediately hungry all the time from right after ovulation. I experienced insomnia very early on as well, before my BFP, which I never knew was a pregnancy symptom until last time I got pregnant. This time my boobs hurt way more than they did last time and I've already gone up a bra size by 4w6d. I got a very, very faint positive on a Wondfo at lunch time about 10 dpo but I ignored it because it was so, so faint. Just to be sure, I took a couple more with FMU on 11 dpo. It was still so faint, and I thought one even came up negative. The next time I tested, a faint but obviously positive line came up, and I was so scared. I called my doctor because I knew he wanted to put me on progesterone gel right away. Of course, my husband was on duty the day I found out I was pregnant as well! The next morning he came home to a very obviously positive FRER with a Christmas bow on it. I got my official BFP that really made me believe I was pregnant on 13 and 14 dpo, which was much later than last time. Merry Early Christmas to us! I am very nervous, but have already seen my doctor, have had 3 beta HCG tests done, of which I will know the results on Monday, and I've been scheduled for an ultrasound on January 5th at 6w2d. I can't wait to see what's in there! Hopefully this will be our sticky little rainbow baby.

Oh, and we used Preseed internally both times I got pregnant. I swear by it! It works for me!

I hope this helps someone to have hope of achieving pregnancy after miscarriage. I am pregnant again less than 4 months after my miscarriage!

BFP Baby#2 and IUI #2

I always said that as soon as I got my BFP, I would post here. Just in case there is even one person out there that could benefit from my story, as i have benefited from all of yours so much. So, here it goes- we have been ttc baby #2 for a year now. It took us 2 years and 2 miscarriages to have DD, but we were able to get pregnant with her with no fertility treatments. Anyway, fast forward to now and she is 18 months and perfect. We knew that we wanted more children and decided to start trying when she was 6 months old due to our age(I'm 32 and DD is 35) and the troubles that we had the first go around. It took us 6 months to get pregnant and I finally got a BFP back in July, only to find that the pregnancy tests kept getting lighter until finally AF arrived. We were devastated to say the least, and immediately got the ball rolling on fertility testing and next steps. Being proactive was the only thing that kept us sane. There were a few things that came back from our testing, the biggest was that I have an overactive thyroid which my RE says could have been causing the miscarriages...he says that my thyroid could have seen the baby implanting as a foreign object to my body and rejecting it. He prescribed me a low dose steroid in case this was the issue. I should also mention that DH has no issues...his count and motility have always been great.

After trying for another couple of months naturally, we decided our next step was clomid and IUI. We decided that we would give it 3 months then move on to IVF as a last resort. Our first IUI, we both had so much hope. We truly thought it was going to work. Partly because it was the first time, and partly because our numbers were so great...I had 2 mature follicles, and 2 medium sized ones. Hubby's count post wash was 94 million with 86% motility! We really thought we nailed it, only to get a BFN in November.

Now for IUI #2- everything was a mess. I thought that I had ovulated prior to the trigger shot, as I got a very strong positive on an OPK. My follicle check only showed one at 17 and another at 13. My lining was at 5.6 from the clomid and I read that it was next to impossible to have successful implantation with anything under 7-8. My RE assured me that we still had 2 days for the follicles and lining to increase. We nearly cancelled the IUI because I thought that I already ovulated, and I wasn't convinced that my numbers were strong enough. We figured, what the heck..we're already so far along in the process. Let's just do it, so we did. Hubby's counts were strong again, 76 million and 86% motility.

Even though my RE told me not to test early, I did of course :) I started testing at 9dpiui and saw a very faint line. I thought it could be the trigger so I tried not to get excited. Then I tested the next day and the next, the lines kept getting darker. The Clearblue digital also came back at "pregnant 1-2". We confirmed with a blood test at 13dpiui and here are my betas-

Beta 13dpiui- 118, progesterone at 16
Beta 16dpiui- 800, progesterone at 11.6(RE immediately put me on supplements twice a day)
Beta 20dpiui- 2799, progesterone at 20.6

It's still so early, that I won't feel completely comfortable until I hear a heartbeat. We're scheduled for our first ultrasound Thursday. I'll just be trying to calm my nerves until then!

I do want to mention a few things that I did differently this cycle- drank pomegranate juice as soon as I heard that my lining dipped(not sure if it helped, but I thought-why not?), prenatal and baby aspirin every day. Hubby and I bd'd on CD8, 10, 14(day after IUI), and 15. I truly believe that I ovulated early and bd'ing on CD8 or 10 is what did it for us. We never do it that early(usually start on day 11 or 2 to give it the best swimmers..lol). I took the advice on my RE and did it on those days and I believe that is why I got my BFP.

Lastly, symptoms before my BFP were slim but I did get a sore throat and stuffy nose somewhere around 5-7dpiui. I also remember wiping and seeing a twinge on brown 6dpiui. Must have been implantation bleeding. Also, frequent urination- I notice it mostly at night. Previously, I would get up once during the night but lately it's been 3 times or more. Other than that, not much to report.

Ladies, I know that it seems hopeless sometimes, but persistence is what got us here. I love being a mom so much and I would have continued trying for years if I knew I would eventually be staring at 2 pink lines. Don't lose hope, and just know that you aren't alone. Fingers crossed that you all get your BFP's soon :)

Bfp after two years of ttc!

Hello lovely ladies! I've been following everyone's stories since we started ttc two years ago. Finally my turn has come to share my good news. Well I am 33 years and hubby is 36. I get my menses regularly and my average cycle is 26 days.I even feel ovulation pain so I know when I ovulate. So it was really disappointing when af arrived each month.
After 6 months of ttc, we went to gynaec and had all tests done. No problem with any of us. Gynaec prescribed clomid 50 mg days 2-6 for 3 cycles. Still nothing. I switched gynaec and this one told me to get hsg done. Everything was clear and I even managed to fall pregnant that same cycle. Unfortunately I miscarried at 6 weeks. We were devastated but we didn't give up. We started ttc soon after that. The second cycle after the miscarriage I went to another lady gynaec who prescribed who prescribed clomid 50 mg days 2 - 6 with proper monitoring on specific days. We found that the follicle was not growing accordingly so I took gonal f injections on day 7, 9 and 10 followed by ovitrelle injection on day 12. I was then told to take utrogestan 100 mg tablets two times a day for 14 days starting fromm 1 dpo. Unfortunately that cycle also was a bust.
The next cycle we did the same except that I didn't need to do gonal f injections as one follicle was already 17 mm on day 7! Ovitrelle injection was done on day 10. That cycle we bd day 9 and 11. Hubby was too tired to bd on days 12 and 13. So I thought here goes another cycle as I wasn't sure we'd managed to catch the egg. Still I started taking utrogestan tablets 200 mg after ovulation.soon after I started having really thick white discharge everyday which freaked me! However this was also one of the first hints that I may get a bfp this month. Secondly I did not get headaches as I usually do before af.so I tested on 16 dpo and was so happy to get my bfp. Just hoping and praying that this one sticks.
Good luck to all of you ttc and just be patient.God wil definitely hear your prayers!

BFP - 2nd IUI - Vasectomy Reversal

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to FINALLY be able to share my BFP story! My husband and I have been TTC for about 2 years now. DH had a vasectomy reversal right after we got married, July 2013. The surgery was a success and 6 months after his surgery we began actively trying. After about a year we decided to seek medical help. In April 2015, we started Clomid. After 2 months with my regular OB I was frustrated and decided to see a specialist in June, 2015. We were set to do IUI in July but I had 9 follicles and they canceled the IUI. August was out because of residual cysts. We had our first IUI in September. DH's sperm count was extremely low, 2 million, (he was taking antibiotics and we were told it shouldn't matter...IT DOES) and I only had two follicles. That IUI resulted in a BFN. Our second IUI was October 19th. I had 5 follicles and his sperm count was better 38 million!

TWW SYMPTOMS
I tried my hardest not to symptom spot as I normally do. I did not take my temperature daily, I tried not to think about anything! Around 5 DPIUI I felt some light cramping that lasted a couple of hours. 7DPIUI I was eating lunch and had very strong cramping that I had to move around to try to get relief, that never came. Those cramps lasted for about 30 minutes. It was very strong. I felt wetness but never really the familiar feel of AF getting ready to come. My Cervical Mucus was very prominent, very white and thick. That was unusual for me. I also took my temperature a few days in the second part of TWW and noticed it was very high. I started temping daily at 12DPIUI when my temp usually starts dropping if AF comes and it still remained high. I took a test on Sunday (13dpiui) and it was negative. I didn't want to test because I hate POAS and seeing BFN, but DH was going out of town and he wanted to be there. I was discouraged but did not cry as much as I usually do, I had faith because my temps were still high.

I did not test the next day exactly two weeks after the procedure, I just figured I would wait for AF. Nothing came! The next morning I said oh forget it, let's get it over with. I looked at the control line and saw it popped up and started crying with joy, then I quickly laughed at myself when I realized I was only looking at the control line. I brushed my teeth and looked again and there was the most precious sight ever a +! Then I cried for real. I was alone and had to call my hubby! It was amazing. I left to go to school and picked up another test on the way and took it in the bathroom in my First Grade classroom. Two pink line immediately showed up. :)

I went to the clinic the next day for my Beta it was 147 and two days later it was 496. Yesterday I had my first ultrasound at 7 weeks and saw my little baby and heard the heartbeat. I have not felt a single thing yet. Just a bit tired sometimes and my breasts are very sore and getting bigger daily it seems. I am so happy. I am so relieved. I am so thankful.

Never give up. God is able to do anything. TTC is a long road, it is hard, it is tough, it is sad, it is lonely but it builds character and strength. When it finally happens it makes it all worth while! I am still praying for a healthy pregnancy throughout but now and forever all the praise and glory is to God for answering my prayer!

Good luck and God Bless!

BFP! 17 months later!

I can't believe I am writing this!

My husband and I have been trying since we got married last June (2014). Every month was a bust. We went in at the year mark and had all the testing done- both of us were fine. Two months later, I had an HSG done- looked great. Finally she put me on Clomid even though I ovulate on my own- 1st Round 50mg Days 4-8 Beautiful BFP!!!!!! Not even FMU!

I'm still shaking. My husband is stuck in traffic and I am going to explode!

I thought I was out for sure (again) because I'm so crampy. Temp plummeted at 13dpo WAY below cover line. Went up to 98.4 this morning and I thought that was weird (97.06 day before).
I've been a little sick (cold, sore throat) the last week.

Only side effect of Clomid was hot flashes at night. Otherwise it wasn't bad.

ZERO SYMPTOMS. Seriously. Besides my cold (all my students have colds) I feel fine. Like I said, thought AF was on her way. So maybe my cramping was a sign but I always cramp right before my period.

I'm feeling excited, nervous, scared.....I've been ready for this for a long time.

Thanks for reading! Baby dust to all that have been trying for much longer than us!

BFP 21 dpo after 3 years ttc with PCOS & low motility. 1 cycle of clomid.

Hello!

I have been stalking twoweekwait.com for about two years now and I never thought I would be sitting here and actually sharing my story. This might be a bit long for some but I hope this can help someone.

Hubby and I are in our middle 20's, how could we possibly tell our friends and family we suffer from infertility? That's not something you can tell everyone even though it would help to have more support. I quit smoking, and by the 2 year mark of ttc I was really sucked into a void of anger, sadness, despair and the feeling of utter uselessness. Booked an appointment with my gynie in September of 2014 for December of 2014. And she started me on Metformin and Pregnitude I'd take 500mg of Metformin in the morning and 1 sachet of Pregnitude in the late afternoon, and this helped tremendously with my symptoms and helped to regulate my cycle, I felt great! But still did not get pregnant after 6 months of being on it, but at least I had a pretty regular cycle.

So I went back to my gynie June of 2015 after a stressful work trip on the opposite side of the country where I hardly had sleep, got the flu twice in a period of 5 weeks! Had an ultrasound done and at least my ovaries were looking a lot better since December 2014. She asked if I'd be willing to try Clomid next, and at this point it was definitely a yes. Carried on with Metformin and Pregnitude as per normal, and lo behold I couldn't use the Clomid yet because my period decided to go haywire after that trip, So AF disappeared from end May to early October! October was another few weeks work trip but thankfully not a stressful one hubby and I went together this time. It was pretty much like a holiday, we got to go to the beach in our free time and were surrounded by the most wonderful people. My cycle came 3 days after arriving, thankfully I packed my Clomid in and I thought to myself it's now or never. Took it everyday at 11 am from CD 5-9 unsupervised (haha), had some side effects though such as lower abdominal cramping, mood swings and headaches. Dtd not digitally monitoring, wasn't completely focusing on ttc much but still keeping an eye out instead of obsessing as I'd always do and rather enjoying ourselves away from the city.

I remember getting a sharp pain in my right ovary on cd 12, for about 2 minutes. I knew this had to have been ovulation cramps! And pretty early might I add, I also noticed a lot of ewcm. The cramps never returned after that night. I started tracking from there.

1- 10 dpo: Felt nothing but a minor side effect still from the Clomid which was mood swings, other than that just my normal self.

11 dpo: Lower abdominal cramps, (felt kind of like period cramps).

12 dpo: Shooting pains pulsating up in the morning, and this very odd tickling sensation below my navel in the evening, felt like someone was stroking a feather inside my uterus.

13 dpo: Had a very intense dream this evening, lower abdominal cramps. Started shivering with goosebumps at night even though it's very hot.

14 dpo: Another intense crazy dream, lower abdominal cramps, and shivers with goosebumps at night.

15 dpo: Another totally messed up dream, lower abdominal cramps and shivers with goosebumps at night.

16dpo: Lower abdominal cramps uuugh, shivers with goosebumps ended.

17 dpo: Period like cramps, highly irritable.

18 dpo: Had a dream of pregnancy, and a baby. Period like cramps.

19 dpo: Period like cramps, irritable to no end.

20 dpo: Still cramping, very annoying, feeling hungry.

21 dpo: Lower abdominal cramps, boobs starting to hurt and BFP in under 10 seconds!

It took me 3 days to finally come post because I just couldn't believe it! I'm still struggling to believe it happened to me. Thank you for reading my story, and wishing all you ttc'ers good luck and baby dust to you all, don't give up yet. I was going to ttc till December and look into other options because I couldn't handle it anymore. And I got lucky, I just wish I could give you all a big box filled with hope, hugs and compassion. I needed a lot of that with our journey. I also switched to a better multivitamin (Viridian) 2 months ago, and have also been taking an extra high 5 B-Complex with Magnesium Ascorbate (Viridian) for 2 months where as I used to only take a regular B-Complex, I don't know if that helped, but felt worth mentioning.

BFP @ 19dpo

I finally got my BFP at 19dpo!!!! I had a miscarriage last May, we have been tcc since July. My cycles are super long usually 35-40 days. I took Clomid this cycle so that I could better track my ovulation. I took it on cycle days 5-9 and I ovulated on or around October 25th. I felt symptoms early but the symptoms seems to disappear after 10dpo. I tested everyday starting at 8dpo. After getting BFN at 15dpo, I started to believe that I was out for this month. Never give up ladies!!!

DPO 1-3 nothing
DPO 4-8 tingling nipples, stuffy nose, vivid dreams, waking up very early in the morning
DPO 9-15 stuffy nose
DPO 16-19 stuffy nose, gassy BFP!!! I'm cautiously excited about our rainbow bean!!!

baby dust to you all!!!

38 years old, husband 41, 50 mg Clomid 2nd cycle

First of all if YOU are reading this please know moments before submitting my BFP story I prayed a special prayer just for YOU. I pray that you too will get your BFP soon and that you have a happy and healthy pregnancy and a chubby little baby in the end of all of this.

Because reading every little juicy detail of your TTC journey helped me, I decided to note down as much as I could remember, here you go:
I am 38 years old and my husband is 41.
My little boy just turned two on November 6. (I was 35 years old when I got pregnant with him, TTC naturally for 4 months, on vacation and bammmm BFP)
I stopped breastfeeding when he was 21 months (OB/GYN said need to stop if TTC, messing with my hormones, making ovaries sluggish and my advanced age didn't help things)
So my cycles have always been regular every 24-26. After my little boy turned a year AF returned and has been regular.

-----CLOMID first cycle BFN --------
I did 50mg Clomid on CD 3-7,
Day 21 Progesterone 7.98,
and did Progesterone pills ORALLY 200mg at 3 DPO.
AF returned CD30.

------CLOMID second cycle BFP---------

CD 1 - October 21, 2015 - Start of AF, heavy and clumpy tissue like bloody discharge, (called dr, worried of clumps- said normal with clomid from prior month)

CD 2 - Started Clomid - 50 mg (my doctor wanted me to do Clomid CD 5-9, but I disregarded, I read a peer reviewed study that showed woman who took CD 1-5 had most success,taking Clomid earlier in cycle causes increase of eggs, taking Clomid later in cycle causes less eggs but more quality eggs, given my age, I wanted to increase my chances of eggs, so I did CD 2-6)

CD 3 - Clomid

CD 4 - Clomid, BD Preseed

CD 5 - Clomid, BBT 98.2 (read while on Clomid your temperature will be higher then normal)

CD 6 - Clomid, BBT 98.2, sticky CM

CD 7 - BBT 98.1, a lot of yellow ear wax, weird because I never have ear wax

CD 8 - BD Preseed, Creamy CM

CD 9 - BBT 97.7 temp dip, temp stabilizing now?

CD10 - BBT 97.7, dark positive OPK, BD, started Baby Aspirin once a day, Evening Primrose Oil (refrigerated) and Mucinex morn and night and I will take these during ovulation fertile period.

CD 11 - dark positive OPK, BD Preseed

CD 12 - dark positive OPK, BD Preseed

CD 13 - dark positive OPK, BD Preseed, woke up extremely constipated even with my daily dose of Miralax (suffered constipation due to breastfeeding). Very painful bowel movement.

Ultrasound -
Uterine Lining - 9.26 mm
Left ovary - 19 mm follicle
Right ovary - look like follicle had a "cyst or had burst"
Blood work -
Progesterone 4.0
Also I did Yoga poses to increase blood flow to uterus
I looked up YouTube videos of ovulation and fertilization because I wanted to see what was happening in my body at this exact moment to help me with visualization. I believe in the power visualization, if you hear about any olympic medalist for example they do visualization, very helpful.

CD 14 - dark positive OPK, BD Preseed and fertility acupuncture, helped me relax

CD 15 - STILL dark positive OPK! what is going on, when did I ovulate???? BD Preseed, BBT 98.0, very painful intercourse felt like my cervix had moved,
I start taking Progesterone 200 mg VAGINALLY this time around, I read it is more effective since closer to source,
I also started Estrace, estrogen, since Clomid thins uterine lining I decided I need to take this to thicken up my lining, I read it does this beautifully.
CD 16 - BBT 98.0 , Acne in parts of face that I normally do not have acne, blood pressure 90/62, went to CVS pharmacy to check it out

CD 17 - BD Preseed
Ultrasound -
Uterine lining is at 6 mm, dr sees one good size follicle doesn't tell me measurement, what! I thought I ovulated a couple days ago, I am so confused

CD 18 - nothing significant to report, other then super stress planning birthday party for my 2 year old, and I have my mother who is disabled with me and
I am VERY STRESSED OUT, even making my self even more stressed out that I am supposed to try to be calm and happy during my fertile week, but I AM TOO BUSY, running around this week like a chicken with head cut off.

CD 19 - son's birthday party, busy and stressed, BFN

CD 20 - Blood work- Progesterone 17.5, Woohooooooo! my body finally worked, I OVULATED, when I don’t know, but I did, I did!!!!!, BFN

CD 21 - BBT 98.1, BFN, feel AF twinges coming, maybe ovary pains on left side

CD 22 - BBT 98.2, I took my temperature later during the day and it was a 100.1!!!!, BFN, lightheaded, itchy legs, went to park - about 20 mosquito bites, i never get bitten! what is going on?, my lil doggie sleeping on my tummy, weird, feel AF twinges coming, maybe ovary pains on left side

BFP after 4 CP's and 15 months, first time Clomid success, spotting

I started TTC'ing in August 2014. I have regular cycles and really didn't think it would take long to get pregnant (I was 31 and healthy). In September 2014 I tried opk's and to my surprise, I didn't get a positive opk until CD 20, which is crazy considering my 28ish day cycles. I then started temping and this confirmed late ovulation and short LP. The doctor dismissed my concerns and said to stop stressing. Fast forward a while and I had 3 confirmed CP's and one suspected. My doctor agreed to refer me to a fertility clinic where they did a full workup. Everything looked fine except slightly high TSH (5-6). I started on Synthroid and Progesterone supps during the luteal phase. Almost right away, I started ovulating earlier which I thought was great. But I then started having a lot of spotting around ovulation (I could feel ovulation for sure!) and during my LP. I tried not to worry about it but it was hard. After 5 cycles of nothing happening since the last CP, my doctor ordered a HSG and gave me a prescription for Clomid (50mg). I decided to go against the doctors orders to get the HSG before trying Clomid. I o'ed on CD 13! And sure enough, BFP first try on Clomid at 9DPO on Cycle 15! No one knows why the Clomid worked. I had a lot of spotting again ... 3DPO until 9DPO and then again a few times in the following weeks. Mostly brown and pink.
Beta's were 10DPO 18, 13DPO 64, 15 DPO 208, 22DPO 5300, 29 DPO 23000, 36 DPO 48300 (it starts to slow at this point)

My first symptoms were irritability and constipation. The constipation and bloating were pretty bad for 3 weeks (and I never have this issue). Breasts are sore. Right at the 6 week mark hit, the nausea started and hasn't let up since.

I am now 7 weeks 3 days and saw the little bean yesterday. Heartbeat was 155bpm. Still nervous but it's looking good so far. I've never made it past 5 weeks before. My advice would be to trust your gut. If you think something seems off, keep pestering your doctor. I'm so glad I didn't wait until the 1 year mark.
