BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Endometriosis

I tell you what: nothing soothes the soul like a whole web page dedicated to the stories of ladies just like yourself who have successfully gotten pregnant with endometriosis.

That's what you'll find here: real life BFP stories from ladies with real life cases of endometriosis. These kind ladies have provided their stories to let you know you're not alone, and that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Because you're not alone. And there is a light. Really.

So check out these stories, and be sure to send us your story when it happens for you. I also highly recommend that you check out FertilAid for Women success stories for women with endometriosis. It's quite inspirational.

BFP for Baby #2!

Hi ladies, I finally got my BFP yesterday night after trying 3 months. Here's a little background info: I'm 26, married 7 years, and we have a 4-year-old (we were not ttc with her). In March 2012, I had an laparoscopy to remove a 6cm cyst on my ovary, which turned out to be an endometrioma (cyst caused by endometriosis)...but I never had any pain from the endometriosis, and didn't have issues following the procedure. We decided TTC after we both finished up our bachelor's degrees, so I had my Paragard IUD removed in September 2012. I have longer cycles (30-31 days) and used the WomanLog App to track periods and estimate ovulation TELLS you your most fertile days, and I highly recommend it.

Oddly enough, during the past few months I was a POAS-fiend, but this month I waited until the day it was due (it will save your sanity), and it showed up right away. I am STILL in shock! We didn't chart, use Pre-Seed, OPK's, or anything else...just plenty of BD-ing and keeping track with the WomanLog App. ;) Here are my "symptoms" until the BFP:

Days 1-6 DPO: Nothing
Day 7: Twinge in my uterus (implantation?)
Days 8-9: Unusually sleepy (9 hours a night and still exhausted)
Days 10-14: Sore, tingly boobs (the same sensation as milk dropping, although I know that's impossible), still very tired
Day 14: BFP at night! First one was faint (but definitely there), 2nd one an hour later was darker. Yay!
Day 15: VERY clear BFP with FMU! (I used First Response tests, a pack of 3)

I am still very tired, and my boobs are still very sore...but I don't "feel" pregnant. I called the doctor and my due date is September 15th, 2013, and I have an ultrasound scheduled on January 31st to confirm. It's still unreal...hoping it sticks! I sincerely wish all of you the best of luck, the two week wait is unbearable! Hang in there!

BFP After 1.5 Yrs With Endometriosis and Male Factor

Dh and I started TTC our first last Aug, 2011. Both of us were 32 y/o. After a couple of months, DH decided to have himself tested and he was diagnosed with bilateral varicocele. I got myself tested too and they found an endometriotic cyst inside my right ovary. DH was advised by his uro to take clomid for 3 months after which we went ahead with clomid and trigger shot, which didn't work the first couple of times. The dr then suggested we do 2 rounds of IUI (with clomid) which also didn't work. Last October, DH made the decision to undergo varicocelectomy. His uro advised him to take a semen analysis end of January to check if his count and morphology have improved. Apparently there wasn't any need for that anymore! I got my bfp last night, after a lot of spotting wherein I thought I was really about to get my period. Confirmed the bfp today with blood work. So ladies, don't lose hope. And, if varicocele is a factor, the surgery really does work:) we're so happy for our answered prayer:) God is really good! Hope this one sticks! Baby dust to all!

Symptoms: exactly the same as when I'm about to get my period... Even the spotting was there!

BFP 12 Days After Laparoscopy and Dye Test

Hi all,

I got a BFP on New Year’s Eve!!!! But I am worried as I had a Laparoscopy and dye test only a few weeks ago (19th Dec 12). All tubes are clear but found PCOS in both and two tiny endo spots. Has this happened to anyone??? I'm 5 weeks and 4 days. Looks like I conceived about a week before the opp.

BFP After 3 1/2 Years With Clomid

I can't believe I am finally posting here. I know these stories helped me through my 2 week wait so I thought I would share mine. I was not really keeping track of my dpo symptoms but I can guesstimate. This was my first round of 100 mg clomid. My DH and I have been ttc for 3 1/2 years and finally got our BFP on New Year's Eve morning. Funny thing my DH and I usually bd every other day during my fertile time. This month due to several family and friends having holiday parties we only bd'd 2 days before O. That's all it took!

I did get a cold around 8 dpo not sure if that had anything to do with it.
10 dpo Woke up with a stiff neck and headache (I never get headaches).
11 dpo Again woke up with a stiff neck and headache.
12 dpo BFN no symptoms
13 dpo Faint BFP on an Internet cheapie, so faint you could hardly see.
14 dpo AF due no sign and BFP on FRER I am having mild twinges and cramps in uterus area.
15 dpo Blazing BFP cramps and twinges still going on.

I seriously had more symptoms other months than my BFP month. No m/s, no sore boobs, I feel fine!

Hoping this is our sticky bean. Please do not give up! I can't tell you how many tears I have cried during the past 3 1/2 years. How many times I wanted to punch someone that told me "Relax it will happen". Don't give up it will happen! ****Lots of baby dust****

BFP With Endometriosis and Lots of Praying

I want to share my story since this website helped me through the tww. And maybe my story can help other girls and let them know that it's possible to conceive (and fast!) after being diagnosed with endometriosis.

I'm 29 and DH is 27
BFP after 2 months trying naturally
Cycles: 31 - 35 days

Diagnosed in 2008 with severe endo on my left ovary after I was submitted to the hospital with terrible pelvic pain. Ultrasound revealed cyst on my ovary and got laparascopic surgery few days later. The dr. said the cyst on my left ovary was 20cm (!). I was devastated as I wanted to have kids in the future. They removed the endo with laser as much as they could. Thankfully my right ovary and ovarian tube were unaffected, the dr. said they looked normal.

Stopped taking BCP in August 2012 and started trying in November.

Symptoms this month:
after ovulation: sleepless nights but I get this normally right after ovulation, I think because of higher progesterone levels?
very weepy from time to time, get tears in my eyes over sappy stuff on tv

2dpo: Swollen breasts, acne break out
4dpo: Lower back pain, acne
8dpo: Heartburn which I don't usually have and...a pimple on my nipple which was red and bit painful (what the.....).
10dpo: Had a good night sleep, bit of brown spotting which is normal for me pre-AF. I thought I was out because I'm a chronic spotter and usually started spotting 6+ days before AF. Sad and weepy because of this...:(
11dpo: Woke up from terrible sleep again. had some cramps at night and decided to test. Couldn't believe it when the line showed up...

Didn't track my temps this month and bd for 8 days straight around my ovulation and put pillow under hips afterward every time for 20 min. I prayed every day for a healthy baby.

I feel really really lucky and blessed and know that my unaffected right ovary had done the trick (I think I only ovulate from that side anyway since I only feel ovulation pains on my right side). Although I wasn't sure whether it was blocked or not from the inside since my endo on the left was so severe.

Praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby and may you get your bfp soon! *Baby dust*

BFP - IVF With Endometriosis and Tubal Ligation

Me - 29
DH - 36
TTC - 13 months
BFP - First IVF Cycle

I am so excited to post this! We started trying last year knowing it would be an up hill battle. This summer I had a cyst burst which was an indication that my endometriosis had flared. I went in for a lap at the end of Sept and found out the endo was bad. Lots of scar tissue and both tubes had hydrosalpinx. I went back in at the end of Oct. and had my tubes removed. I then started my first IVF cycle.

Egg retrieval - 12/11/12
Egg transfer - 12/16/12 (2 blastocysts - 4AA, 4BB)

Only symptoms was severe bloating (left over from fluid retention with trigger shot and progesterone) and fatigue. Nothing else!!

Good luck to everyone! Baby dust!


Me 35
Husband 36
TTC +2 years
Stage 3 endo diagnosed/laparoscopy earlier this year (I had no endo symptoms so it was a big surprise)

Decided to do IVF after advice from consultant. First cycle we got a BFP. Cycle went 26 follicles, 18 eggs, 9 fertilized, 4 made it to blast, 1 ok to transfer the rest failed.

Had acupuncture throughout including on the day of transfer. Took pregnancy vitamin supplements, ate healthy (minimized sugars) and no caffeine. Also did an ivf meditation cd for each of the 3 stages which helped keep me relaxed and sane. Drank masses of water and still am. Did not read any forums or websites throughout the cycle. Also cuddled my cat.. a lot!!

Am now 7 weeks pregnant. Had 6 week scan and now waiting for one around 9 weeks. Had no obvious symptoms except for some cramping for 3 days which may have been due to implantation. Still don't have any symptoms except I am sleeping a lot more.

Never thought this was going to happen for us, but have read this website many times and it always gave me hope. I hope our story gives you strength during difficult times and I wish you all the best with your journey.

BFP Finally!!!

I've never posted online in my life, but I wanted share my story!!
I'm 34 and DH is 32, we've been trying to conceive for 2 years... at that time I also found out that I have cysts, they think were caused by endometriosis. It's been many long months and tears. I finally got to the point that I completely gave it over to GOD and realized that it was not in my hands at all!! This month my doctor was sending me to a specialist to have the surgery to remove the cyst and see what the problem was. I had made the appointment and the very next day I got my very first BFP ever! Praying for it to last!!!

To be honest I had more symptoms in previous months. The only few things were that my boobs started hurting a little later this month. I was also soooo thirsty and when I ate steak (which I love) it tasted horrible and that was really it. I had already cried this month thinking that it didn't happen. It's true what they say when you really let it go that's when it happens!! My prayers go out to all of you trying to conceive, I know it's heartbreaking. Try to get to a positive place with it all!! xoxo

BFP DPO 14 :)


I've read this site loads, so wanted to put my own BFP story in. Every month I've really thought that I was pregnant, and it was a complete shock when I actually saw the two pink lines! This is our first and we've been trying for 10 months. I have endometriosis, and was due to have a second laparoscopy early next year, so fingers crossed this will all work out, and I won't need any further ops etc to help me along.

I drank this month because of xmas do's but used Pre-Seed and used a clearblue fertility monitor my friend lent me. I find it helps because we work long hours and sometimes it's a struggle to dd even twice a week.

My tww:

DPO 1-6 All normal, with just a bit of tiredness
DPO 7 Cramping, which I hoped would be a good sign, but to be honest had it every month around the same time!
DPO 8-10 Nothing, watery/creamy CM but nothing else notable
DPO 11 Bbs hurt, feeling very tired and emotional (the same as every other month)
DPO 12 Tiny amount of faint brown CM, thought it was my period
DPO 13 Period due today, v tired, feeling scatty, can't concentrate, no period
DPO 14 Feeling grouchy and v tired, bought a test on the way into work, so happy to get a BFP

Still feeling so tired and work is a real effort. Thank goodness it's nearly Xmas.

Again, very early days, and my husband and I will keep the news a secret for another 6-7 weeks but so happy!


BFP 1ST Cycle After Laparoscopy With Severe Endometriosis

My story is of great chance but I believe it will bring hope to someone... I have been with my husband for 9 yrs. Trying for a baby for 6, miscarried 3 before 3 months of pregnancy. It took 2 yrs to diagnose endometriosis, I get crippling pains around o and af, endo blanketed one ovary, stuck the other twisted onto my womb and I have a mass filling up my 'pouch of douglas'. I was ovulating but the egg was lucky to get anywhere and when it did my womb could not grow with the pregnancy because it was restricted in a web of endo. I had a laparoscopy to remove the endo around my womb and ovaries and a blue dye test to check my tubes (they were clear). After I was on antibiotics for 2 weeks and told to take it easy. We didn't plan on trying for 6 weeks or so. I was due af 1 day after my op. We bd a few times without the pressure of 'trying' and i thought nothing of it... Symptoms were metal mouth, very tired and peeing lots (thought it was the antibiotics) when af never came.... BFP 2 weeks later! I had no sickness and feared loosing baby all the way through the pregnancy.
That was last year, I now have a beautiful 1yr old whose a treasure to us. My endo disappeared in pregnancy but has since returned with a vengance...but the pain is worth it. I've been told I may need surgery if I want to try for another but I'm happy with what I have. The staff at the hospital that did my operations also delivered my baby. I took pregnancy vitamins all the way through and my church prayed for us every week and she was 2 weeks overdue... 9lb 6oz!
I had an emergency c section as I had pre eclampsia. We both survived!

It happens when you least expect...
