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.

conceived on our 12th month :-)

So for the first 9 months of ttc I tracked everything and was on point. Month 10 and 11 I said I wasn't going to pay attention but I still tracked cm and kept a couple of notes. Still tested early to be disappointed. Month 12 I had just came off of a 2 month diet. I was eating healthy which I always do and did nothing different. I didn't track and told my husband after my period came I was going in birth control for 6 months to try and help a lil and give me a break to concentrate on my gym. We all know when TTC that's all we can focus on! I noticed ewcm on tissue in abundance on CD 15 & 16! Noted it in my mind because I never have it even when checking let alone on tissue...maybe once or twice before. Once O was over I realized you know what my boobs don't hurt like usual after O. And I just felt generally crappy like I was gonna vet sick but wasn't yet. Day period was due my boobs swelled up and were tender... no period in morning like usual...I told myself I'd wait a day then I realized how clear my face was! By period time my face is always completely broken out...made me think Mmm...went and got a dollar store test and took it in mid morning. Blank white stated at me by the time the control showed up...I'd seen it too many times so threw it out. And like always went to pee about 40 min later and saw a second pink line. I freaked BC in the prior 11 months I'd never even gotten an evap line. Told myself go get another test and wait for morning. Of course I didn't. I took it that night on dpo 14. Within two min super light second line. Wasn't convinced said I'll wait till morning since it was a two morning took the next and same super faint line. Felt a little discouraged. Asked sisters advice said wait a day get a digi. Well I got the digital on CD 15 and took it with super watered down urine after work in the afternoon...the great is history. I am ecstatic. Sorry for this long story but I can't believe I'm writing it. I'm saying that I'm pregnant! Thank you all for being so wonderful

10 or 11 DPO

My story. ... for those who are waiting.

I am 10 or 11 DPO. I read these posts almost every day. Issue is... I was having almost EVERY symptom. I did not have IB or big dips in my temp.

1 dpo- stabbing pain in my uterus for about an hour.
2-11 dpo (not every day, but they did get me intense along the way)- UTI, vivid dreams, bleeding gums, sensitive teeth, congested, waves of nausea, diarrhea, painful breasts, headaches, cramps, burning sensation in breasts and sides of stomach, times I was very hungry.

I have to say, I am already really sick. It is worth it, though!

BFP at Day 15 dpo

Hi all, I have really found these sites so helpful so thought I would share my story. I am mid 40's and have just found out I am pregnant. I got married earlier in the year and we have been TTC for about 5 months.

I have been feeling very disheartened as I have had endometriosis and thought at my age nothing would ever come of things. I was even scheduled for a second laparoscopy in January 2015 to have any residual endometriosis removed, not only to help a possible pregnancy but because I was suffering greatly with my periods.

I know it's early days but I really am hopeful that this BFP will remain a BFP and I shall test again tomorrow to be sure.
This morning the line was faintly positive, but it was definitely there. Again this site helped me realise what to look for and that a line, however faint, means only thing.

All I can say is that I have been eating a lot of broccoli! And lemon juice in the mornings and trying generally to eat well and keep active.

Symptoms that I noticed up until now:
I have noticed heartburn for the first time in my life (very mild, but enough to make me wonder). Gassy, but I wondered if that was due to the broccoli and/or supplements I've been taking (pregnacare). I also had an incredibly bad bout of cramps the week after ovulation, or around that time, to make me wonder if the endometriosis was playing its tricks again. As it happens, that must have been the good old implantation symptoms. Breasts hurt terribly for about 5 days and then suddenly subsided - ie today I have no pain, but they are full and I could have sworn I noticed three veins last night rather than the usual one which is usually always present before AF arrives. I have not had headaches or sickness or hunger, but I suppose it is much too early. Oh and dreams - very vivid and some nights I have hardly slept which has made me feel scratchy the next day. Cramps are there, occasionally severe enough for me to think that AF is definitely on its way, but so far no.

I feel on top of the world, to think a little human is starting its course within me...

I have found this site so useful because the 2WW can be daunting and bewildering, and with endometriosis especially you do wonder what on earth is going on.

I was also suspicious because my BBT chart was triphasic this month and this morning my temp was even higher than it had been, meaning the oven is cooking.

TTC #1 for 11 months with low morphology, possible PCOS and probable endometriosis

I know most gals say this but I'm so happy that I can finally post my BFP story!! I've been reading this site for many months now, especially the post laparoscopy BFP stories.
A little bit about me first: both DH and I are 29 and have been trying for 11 months. I knew that I probably had endometriosis for about 4.5 years now but chose not to have laparoscopic surgery initially (my consultation with the surgeon is tomorrow!). Had an U/S in the summer which showed borderline PCOS and a probable endometrial cyst on my ovary. DH had SA done which showed low morphology (only 3% normal!).
I really thought that I was out this month since my temps were all over the place and I didn't ovulate until CD23 (Halloween!). The last time we BD'd was CD20 so I wasn't feeling good about my chances. Had my annual physical exam with my family doctor on CD30 and asked that a pregnancy test be done on my urine and it came back negative (I wasn't surprised). But my temps have been nice and high and I had a dream last night that I had BFP so I decided to test this morning on CD33/10 dpo with FRER and I was SHOCKED to see a BFP!! It was faint but definitely there. I woke up DH to look even though it was only 5:45 am. It really took a while to sink in, but I couldn't be happier! I never thought that this would happen!!!
No symptoms except for subtle brown CM the night of CD30, but I thought that it was from my PAP. Also my bbs have been big and sore, but that happens sometimes before AF.
Some of the things we did differently since the summer: DH quit drinking, switched to boxers, no baths, no cycling and started fertility vitamins for men. I've been taking chinese herbs, B100 complex (along with the usual pre-natal vitamins), gained some weight by eating healthy fats (I had a borderline low BMI) and had a mayan abdominal massage.
Praying for a sticky bean!

Never thought I could have kids!

Hello everyone! I am a first time Mother. I am 25. I have endometriosis and PCOS. I was told that I would have to be on fertility drugs to become pregnant. Me and my boyfriend have been together for almost 3 years. We never used any sort of protection and I was convinced I could just never have kids. I have missed periods before. My last period was September 10th. I never got my period in October and I thought it was just another month I was going to skip. 2 days ago I took a pregnancy test and it came up a big fat positive. The sometimes that I have felt are sore boobs after missed period, fatigue, gums bleeding, mild cramping, strong sense smell, and nausea. I thought I was getting the flu.I just wanted to give hope for all the women out there who would love to have children and think they can't. God bless and baby dust to all!

BFP after 8 months TTC with endometriosis and PCOS

So after 8 months of trying I finally got my bfp.

The main thing I noticed was there were not many symptoms. In fact I had less symptoms than the 'symptoms ' I had when I wasn't pregnant in the past and that drew my attention.

- Normally have tender breasts week leading up to period and didn't have this
- Felt cramping on day of implantation arpund 7dpo. Felt like af was coming for sure. That night was sooo tired I kept falling asleep on the couch. Next day cramps gone.
- major aversion to meat. Couldn't touch it

Nothing else really except nausea. This wasn't until after implantation and once I already knew. God told me to take a test so I did!

This month what I did differently was taking evening primrose up to ovulation and stopped taking after ovulation as it can cause uterus cramping.

Bfp at 10 dpo.

Surprise BFP with PCOS

So I always said that I would post my story on here if and when we ever got a BFP. So here I am shocked that I am getting to post it.

I have PCOS and Endo. My husband and I have been trying for just over 2 years to conceive. We did an IUI back in early August and got negative test after negative test after our dreaded 2WW. I was so upset and it really had taken a toll on my body (IUI caused pretty bad pain for me and I was on bed rest for a few days) so we decided to take a few months off from TTCing. After all my husband was switching jobs and we are currently house hunting so it seemed like a good time to relax and just enjoy each other for a while. During this break we really did just that, enjoy each other. We went on a weekend getaway to the mountains, went to a concert, had many date nights and enjoyed a few beers!! For the first time in a long time I was not completely focused on getting pregant.

Well a couple weeks back I started cramping pretty bad and it was on and off for about two weeks. My boobs also felt like they were going to fall off my body they hurt so bad. So on Monday June 13, I realized that I hadn't had a period since before my IUI (pretty normal for me when I am not on fertility drugs) so I called my docotor and asked them to call me in a prescription to jump start my period. I wanted to make sure I was getting my body healthy so we could start trying again in January or February. My doctor told me to make sure I take a pregnancy test before I started the medicine and other then that I was good to go. So on Tuesday, June 14, right before I went to go pick up my medicine I took a cheap test just so I could rule it out. And wouldn't you know, a VERY positive pregnancy test before the control line even had time to show up. It was our very first BFP.

We had our first ultrasound yesterday and we are currently 5w6d pregnant with our first and feeling so blessed that we actually got to experience that shock of a lifetime. Please say prayers for a healthy 9 months as I am still high risk!! Part of me still can't believe that when everyone would say "just relax it will happen" that they were right...

Long Awaited BFP

This is for all of the ladies who have been ttc for 12+ months. My husband and I have been ttc for 16 months with absolutely no end in sight! My RE felt confident I have endometriosis and with every passing month or became more and more apparent I needed surgery. BUT I got my BFP yesterday, entirely natural, and with no medical intervention whatsoever! Here were my symptoms leading up that those two beautiful pink lines...

1-7 dpo - totally normal. Noting happening at all and wasn't even expecting it bc we only BD'd once during my fertile

8-9 dpo - AF cramping hard core. Waayyy too early for these so what is going on?

9-10 dpo - feeling normal, nothing unusual going on at all

11-13 dpo - AF has to be on its way. Sore bbs, watery cm, cramps, sleepy, diarrhea. Oh, yeah, she's acoming.

13 dpo - woke up with a VERY sore throat out of absolutely nowhere and a legitimate cold underway. Slight fever of 99.8 and an overall weird feeling. This is when AF was due.

14 dpo - AF still not here when I wake up. Gushing CM I kept thinking was AT but still nothing. I'm a day late so I have no reason to fight the urge to POAS today. BFP! Darkest line ever! Take another one! Darkest line ever! We're having a baby! Woo!

I just want to add that every month I failed to conceive broke my heart. I not only had started doubting the process, but genuinely thought it couldn't happen this month bc we only BD'd once. And then, surprise. My life has officially changed. :)
