bfp 7dp5dt fet

Hi. I tried to post this on the "Am I Pregnant" forum but was having trouble getting it published. I did my first FET this month and have been taking 6mg estrace and PIO injections every night. I have not been feeling any early symptoms. I decided to do a HPT because I was pretty sure I wasn't pregnant and didn't want to wait two more days to go first beta. surprisingly it came out positive but i am still in disbelief. Is there any possible way estrace or progesterone could have altered the results? I did not take an HCG trigger shot this cycle. I'm trying not to get too excited.

Finally - after 3 years!!

After 3+ long years, I couldn't believe it when I saw "pregnant" on my Clearblue stick yesterday. I got my blood work done in the morning, but it was taking the doctor too long to call me. At lunch I bought my own test :-)!!! First, let me say I had my doubts because not only have we failed at IVF twice (four times if you include two cancellations), but I only had a Day-5 morula, rather than a blastocyst on the day of transfer. Three doctors gave me little hope. Now, I'm so happy to report my BFP was received yesterday - both from my HPT and Beta (182). During the TWW, here's what I felt: - 3dp5dt - period-like cramping (lower abdomen and lower back) for 3-5 days - extreme thirst - 30 seconds of nausea, only once - extreme tiredness (like in my bones) Two days before before my pregnancy test, the symptoms just went away. Wishing you all the best!!

BFP after 4 years of trying

My hubby and I had been trying to conceive for a little over 4 years before we got our BFP, so if you're I that boat, keep your head up! Symptoms: O-day: estimated ovulation day, DTD. A little ewcm, nothing really. 1 DPO: nothing 2-10 DPO: slight cramping, more pinching feeling, a little nausea and occasional frequent urination. 11-18 DPO: tender breasts, a little nausea, odd pelvic twinging/pinching feeling. Didn't think I was pregnant at all. We've had so many disappointing months that I didn't even want to think it. 19 DPO: nausea, fatigue, and started getting leg cramps. Felt like RLS, and kept me up all night. Very strong twinging 20-26 DPO: leg cramps continue to wake me up. Very tender breasts(which normally happens in the 7 days before my period then stops) strong twinging and pulling sensation in lower left abdomen. 27 DPO: finally decide it's worth a test (period 13 days late!!) very immediate and clear BFP!!! 28 DPO: 3 more BFP!! And my wonderful son, the love of my life was born 9-4-14❤️❤️

BFP after laparoscopy

Hubby and I had been ttc for over two years. We were about to start IVF but I was booked in for a lap and dye after there was no spill on my right tube after an initial dye test. I was terrified of the lap, but it was a lot better than I expected. I was treated for mild endo on the right side too. Just make sure you rest properly after the op. I tried to do too much after a week and it set me back a bit (the docs advise one week off work, but I would take two). Anyway, my next ov date after the lap was literally about 10 days after the lap and I was not recovered sufficiently from the op to try then. However, we got our BFP on the next cycle! I've been so nervous of something going wrong since we've been waiting so long, but we had an early scan at 6wks (after I had pains on the right side) and we saw the heartbeat on the scan machine. Fingers crossed everything will be ok. I had heard that you have a better chance of getting pregnant after a lap, but I honestly had no real hope of getting pregnant after 2 years and saw the op only as a means to an end, namely IVF. In my case, having the laparoscopy was definitely the best thing I ever did.

Don't give up... There is always hope!

I have stalked the stories on this board for many years and am now thrilled that we can share our story! A little bit of background... We began our journey 4 years ago. After a year of no luck we were referred to a fertility specialist. We went through 5 OI (ovulation induction) cycles... All negative. All tests to date were normal (hubby had sperm which got a gold star from the specialist.. Hehe)! We were given the option of a laparoscopy to check for endometriosis or begin IVF. I had no symptoms of endo other than up to a week of spotting before each of my periods. We decided on IVF. The following IVF and FET (single 3 day and then 5 day embies) were negative. We then decided it was time for the laparoscopy... I was dreading it! Op went really well, turns out I had stage 2 moderate endo, which would have been causing problems with implantation. Next IVF round was 5 months later, new doc (due to moving cities), new tests (I had speckled ana levels), new protocol (clexane) and new hope. We put back a very good looking AA day 5 blasto and 8 days past transfer (8dp5dt) I had a squinty BFP... The first time in my life! Confirmed by several pee sticks later and then blood tests. Symptoms: Not many unfortunately... Boobs felt a little sore but nothing else. Best of luck to all the hopeful mums to be out there... I 100% understand the frustration and disappointment each BFN can bring. If you can check for endo or natural killer cells ... Do! Don't be afraid of a laparoscopy.... Just make sure you rest lots and have heat packs at hand for the recovery! Most importantly, don't be afraid to speak to people about your journey... It does help! Love and baby dust to every single one of you x

Very early pregnancy signs -IUI

I am infertile. DH and I have been TTC for 3 years. Multiple IUI's cancelled due to no or poor response. We switched RE's, who out is on low dose Femara (5mg) CD 3-7 and Bravelle (75iu) CD 7-11. We had our IUI on Monday, June 1st. I just knew this was going to work. Got my BFP today!! I had VERY early symptoms/signs: 3DPIUI - AF type cramping 6DPIUI - Nausea would come in waves. This is still ongoing. Not morning sickness bad, more like taking vitamins on an empty stomach. 8DPIUI - Couts of extreme fatigue followed by severe hot flashes to the face lasting 30 minutes. These are ongoing still, a couple times a day. 11DPIUI - my right nipple was sore and hard crawling into bed. That was strange enough to to pique my interest. 12DPIUI - Had a dental cleaning. Gums bled like crazy. Severe AF type cramps started. No spotting or bleeding. Depression. Sure my cycle was coming. Tested anyway. BFP!! Sometimes those early symptoms are NOT in your head!

Finally BFP @ 13dpo after nearly 3 years TTC and endo!

I hope with my story i can give some ladies more hope especially the ones that suffer from infertility and endometriosis. I didn't know i had endo until i experienced increased pain during my periods (always needed a pain killer on the first day) and developing large blood filled cysts on my ovaries. The pain was so bad in 2012 and the cysts wouldn't disappear, a laparoscopy was needed and i was diagnosed with endo stage II. I was told to get pregnant right away, but it wasn't possible to start trying until half a year later. We tried for a year and i went to see a doctor and had again cysts. I was told my egg reserve is low and my ovaries are scarred and out of position, not directly under the tubes. Only solution is either IVF or another operation. I decided to go for natural treatment first. I started taking vitex, propolis, vitamins, iodine and folic acid. Also went on a endo diet, with the biggest change there to cut out gluten which seems to have a negative effect on endo patients as it's linked to celiac desease (gluten intolerance). I've always been a non smoker, rarely drink and don't like coffee much. So i've been taking vitex for not even 2 months yet, saw positive changes happening fast, my luteal phase was extended by 2 more days, so my luteal phase went from 10 days to 12. The cycle i conceived i was dry! I had no notable CM before ovulation, we used preseed the entire fertile window and it worked out, i got the BFP that cycle. Overall we TTCed for nearly 3 years. Symptoms by DPO: 1-5 dpo - no symptoms really, not even sore boobs, just very very mild twinges in my belly here and there 6 dpo - I remember telling my husband about a butterfly feeling in my stomach, it was so mild i thought i imagined it 7 dpo - Fever in the evening, thought i caught a cold as there had been a chilly thunderstorm the day before, i got a bit wet and then we were in a restaurant with the A.C. turned so cold, i was freezing constantly. So i blamed that for me getting a fever. 8 dpo - Temp rise, thought it's the aftermath of the fever, stayed home from work to take a rest, felt exhausted 9 dpo - Big temp dig 10-11dpo - Temp back up, no real notable symptoms, i seemed emotional (cried at all movies i watched, lol ><), noticed i had no PMS this whole time 12 dpo - Period was due, no sign of it at all, no cramps, no PMS, nothing, no craving for chocolate, did a preg test and it came out positive, but was such a squinter, we couldn't believe it. 13 dpo - Took another preg test, line is visible without squinting, but still faint 14 dpo - Confirmed with a digital to be really sure, got a nice "1-2 weeks preg" and a nice visible plus. Symptoms start to kick in a bit: tired, mild sore bbs, frequent urination and hungry, stomach keeps growling all the time Conclusion: I had overall no PMS symptoms or preg symptoms really, no spotting, no cramps. All i had really was an odd fever one evening and maybe that butterfly feeling in my stomach giving me a hint. Never give up, it can happen! I conceived naturally with no help other than a healthy lifestyle and herbal treatment, although i was recommended IVF and/or surgery. So excited now :-) Hope it sticks!!! Good luck everyone!!!! You'll get there!

BFP @ 10 DPO, Cycle after Chemical

Hello Ladies: I've been debating on whether to post my story but decided it might help someone out. I am 9w4d pregnant. I had my first u/s at 8w1d and saw my healthy bean with a strong heartbeat! My BFP came the cycle following a chemical pregnancy. The chemical caused me to ovulate about a week late. Speaking of ovulation, I used the clear blue advanced digital ovulation test along with internet cheapies to confirm ovulation. I did not temp. 1-5 DPO - Nothing to report. Completely normal. 6 DPO - For about an hour I had cramps that felt similar to period cramps (maybe implantation day??) 7 - 8 DPO - Nothing to report. Completely normal. 9 DPO - Told DH I was positive I was not pregnant because I felt so normal. I tried to have a glass of sangria with my dinner and couldn't drink it. It tasted disgusting. 10 DPO - Decided I would take a test with FMU just to see. I'm a POAS addict. Faint line came up on internet cheapie and I thought I was just seeing things. Decided to try a FRER using the same urine sample and the faint line came up immediately. I seriously couldn't believe it. I was super paranoid since I had a chemical the cycle before so I kept testing every morning just to make sure my lines got darker. I was beating the control line on FRER by 14 DPO. So there you have it... I got my BFP (first pregnancy) with basically no symptoms. And still today at 9 weeks, I have very few symptoms. :) Good luck out there ladies. My best advice is to use OPK's!

It only takes ONE!

I am 32 and my husband (34) and I been TTC for two years. I had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy in November 2014 to correct a uterine septum, remove as much endometriosis as possible, and remove a large ovarian cyst. At that time I was excited and thought we had finally identified our issues and were ready to move on and have a baby! We did three rounds of IUI that were all unsuccessful. Each round of IUI it became more and more clear that I wasn't responding to the medications. I was told that I had ovarian deficiency syndrome and that we could have difficulty with producing enough follicles/eggs for IVF. We decided to move forward with IVF and got included on the next IVF cycle. For the first round of IVF I was on Gonal-F injectables morning and night. When I went in for my 2nd ultrasound I only had 4 follicles; 3 normal and 1 abnormally large. The IVF cycle was cancelled and moved to TI. I was so upset that it was cancelled and even more upset the TI didn't work. We would have to wait for the next IVF cycle that was nearly 2 months away. It felt like forever. For the next round of IVF I was moved to 300 of Follistim in the morning and 300 of Menapur at night. At the final scan I had 7 follicles. We hoped for more but would take what we could get. On day of retrieval we were informed they were able to retrieve 5 eggs. I kept running through my mind all the different scenarios. Best case I'd have a few embryos and worst case I wouldn't end up with any. The thought was too much for me. When we got the call on the status of the embryos my heart was both overjoyed and crushed. One had fertilized. I was so grateful and happy that we had the one but also so sad the others didn't make it. I only had one shot! This was it. When we went in for the transfer I was told the one embryo looked great. Grade A with no fragmentations. Thank the Lord! On day 8 or 9 post transfer I took a HPT and it was BFN. I went into breakdown mode. I cried myself to sleep knowing it was over. I'd have to go through the whole thing again. The pain was too much. On day 10 post transfer I took another test and saw the faintest line. I couldn't tell if I was making it up in my head. I guess I wasn't, yesterday I had my beta test and got the call that I'm prego! HCG Beta @ 13dpo (10dp3dt) - 130! The road is still long but I never thought I'd get to this place. Ever. It really does only take one. Have faith on the day of the transfer and believe you are pregnant!! Don't let those HPTs play mind games with you (so easy to say, so hard to do.) I wish you all the best on your journey and pray for BFPs for all of you. It is the most broken I have ever been and only those that experience infertility can truly understand the pain. Have faith.

BPF after 3rd round of Clomid and HSG test

Well like many of you I have read this site for months, trying to see if I was on the right path to a BFP. I have been off of birth control since August of 2014. Did not get a period for 4 months, doctor gave me progesterone to try to trigger my period, nothing happened. She did all kinds of blood work and everything came back fine. I have endometriosis so I did not have to wait the full year before trying something else. In November she gave me clomid to take day 5-9. First 2 months, I did ovulate, confirmed with blood test, but did not get BFP. Before the 3rd try she sent me to get the HSG test, did not have any blockages, but did have some minor pain so could have had minor blockages. This month finally BFP!!!!! Going to the doctor Thursday to check to see is twins! My symptoms were: 1-7-DPO nothing except lots of lower pressure in abdomen, I normally have very sore boobs after ovulation until period this time nothing 8-10 DPO stomach a little upset. boobs still not sore 11-14 DPO diarrhea off and on and tired Tested 14DPO- and BPF on 2 different brand tests!! I still can't believe it is really happening. Don't give up it will happen and if your doctor suggests the HSG test do it, was not very painful and totally worth it!!
