BFP 8dpo!

I’m so excited to finally get to post my BFP story. I’ve watched this site for a while and I love reading everyone’s stories. First let me say that this was our second cycle trying to conceive and here is a list of things I did differently. 1.Took prenatal vitamins! 2.Used Ovulation test. 3.Less caffeine 4. Tried not to stress! 5.Legs up after sex. I personally think the ovulation test and prenatals are what helped us this cycle. I believe I had a chemical last month I had a vvfl and slowly but surely it got lighter and then AF came. So I’m very excited about this! Now to the good part my list of symptoms! CD 17: positive opk! Did the baby dance! CD 18: peak opk! (Crampy, threw up, feeling weak) CD19: O day! Did the baby dance (feeling better, slight cramps could be from gas) CD20:1dpo ( creamy lotion cm, tired (could be unrelated) felt a few “pinches” CD21: 2dpo (Feeling normal) lots of cm CD22:3dpo (Feeling normal) left ovary pain. CD23:4dpo (feeling normal) CD24:5dpo(feeling normal) CD25:6dpo(feeling normal, gassy, went to bed early) CD26:7dpo(feeling normal, slept so much today) CD27:8dpo( Feeling normal, slight cramping in back, BFP?!, lots of CM) CD28 ( Feeling normal, more pinching and pulling in my lower abdomen, took another test definitely a BFP!!! I don’t have any “real” symptoms yet. I didn’t get symptoms with my son until I was over 6 weeks so I’m not worried. My line is way darker than last month with my chemical. I will continue to test to watch my line progression. Praying for a sticky bean! My AF is due in 5 days praying she never comes! Good luck ladies! Baby dust to everyone.

BFP 36 One Ovary Clomid 2nd Cycle

God is so great! I had a larascopic oophorectomy in December and had left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to previous ruptured cyst year prior as well as severe adhesion's from endometriosis. My cycles were shorter but it appeared my right ovary was ovulating. I tried for 6 months and it was causing strife between my husband and I due to stress. We took a break focused on clean eating and went to couples therapy. I started clomid 50 mg 5-9 and took at night. Month one was emotional and I thought I was pregnant but never got a positive test. The next month I prayed everyday. I asked God to show me his will if this was not my plan. I also focused on joy for other women conceiving and prayed for other women struggling. Focusing on how I could help others made me less stressed during cycle two. I committed to no crazy early testing (like testing before implantation is even possible) I BD every other day and three days in a row after CB digital positive ovulation.(Eight days after last pill) I drank Pink Stork Fertility tea till ovulation, took Evening Primrose oil and snacked on Organic Brazil nuts, I also took plant based COQ10 and Pink Store Prenatal. I never thought I would have my BFP this month. Side note I had strongest ovulation as I really felt and my progesterone levels are excellent. I have six week ultrasound next Monday and am nervous and ecstatic. I pray for all the brave women who stuggle and continue to try. Bless you and Baby Dust! Below are some of the things I noted during tww. 1 -3 dpo Nothing 4 dpo Strong pelvic pains started to worry had cyst. exhausted, starving, craving bad foods, lotiony cm, kind of horny, gas 5 dpo Pelvic pain went away, in good mood, Still tired, bm multiple times hard and not soft like normal, lots of creams cm when checking, water discharge early am and lots of gas 6 dpo not much gas..loads of gas 7 dpo not much gas..loads of gas..argument with DH. Angry when normally more weepy before AF 8 dpo Gas :(, at store shopping ran to bathroom and barely made it due to huge soft bm, sorry tmi (usually go to bathroom a lot right before af) 9dp-10dpo Convinced AF is coming light cramps no pregnant feeling, but I had odd tickling under belly button. I had a glass of wine and noticed heart rate is elevated. Now that I look back resting heart rate went up and stayed up after pregnancy. 11dpo (two days before af) take test convinced negative want to get out of the way line on FRER under two minutes 12dpo BFP on CB Digital and Confirmed Beta 17 HCG 14 dpo Beta 157 18 dpo Beta 1,758

BFP by DPO! 13DPO

After trawling the internet and reading 2ww success stories I’m so happy to share mine again! This is my 3rd pregnancy after TTC for approx 4 months. AF has only returned for 5 months as I’m still breastfeeding my 22mo DD. 1dpo: nothing 2-6dpo: fuller boobs and sensitive nipples (this symptom remains during the entire 2ww). 7dpo: frequent urination, tired, stretchy yellow white discharge like before AF usually, light cramps in evening :( at 10pm had a painful pinching in uterus for about 2 min - felt strange. 8dpo: Woke up with light cramps, moody. 9dpo: Cramps in AM, feels like AF coming. Little yellow white discharge. No cramps in day and PM. Gassy at night. 10dpo: Only light cramps in the morning. Constipation at night. Nausea and very tired during day. Heartburn after dinner. 11dpo: Constipation. Very tired. 12dpo: Weird sharp pain right side uterus for about a minute. 13dpo: Light cramps in morning. Elevated body temp: Shooting pains in nipples. So tired and irritable by 1pm. BFP at 1.30pm!!

I can’t believe it!

So this month our first month really trying and surprisingly we got pregnant! This will be our second child. I didn’t use OPKs, but was tracking my cycle with fertility friend. My cycles have been anywhere between 26-32 days with my OV day between 15-18. I got EW CM on CD 13 and CD 14, which led us to BD on CD 14 and CD 15 with preseed. After suspected OV day between CD15 to CD17, I got creamy CM, bursts of energy, tired at night (normally struggle to fall asleep before midnight and was going to bed by 8:30/9), wanted to clean the house constantly (not my thing lol) and got several twinges in my stomach. I was little moody, but that’s not terribly new! Poor DH. My CM has been creamy since OV, which is new as it usually becomes sticky or non existent. I just knew something was different this time. I tested on CD 26 and got my BFP! My DH and I are very excited. Baby will be born in June 2018!! Baby dust to you all!!

Bfp after over a year

My husband and i tried to conceive for what felt like forever! We actually took a two cycle break and this cycle was the return of trying and WE GOT A BFP!!! im only 10 dpo right now and just,took the test tonight but it is a strong line. So on to what you came here for, symptoms of course! Before 8 dpo I didn't notice anything truly unusual. 8 dpo: really frequent urination... Like every 45 mins to an hour Nose was really dry with bloody boogers. Gross i know Wasnt getting any good sleep yet i was pretty tired 9dpo: nose thing again & urination same Felt a general but strong awareness behind my pubic bone almost like an ache at times Oh and two nights in a row (8&9 dpo) woke up from my sleep in the middle of the night with,aching boobs on the bottom and sides but only lasted,briefly,and just,those two times 10dpo: in the am when i peed i wiped and saw a thick & time sized amount of creamy cm which was odd.. I dont usually get that much of it at once Took a test at 10pm and a strong line appeared within 30 seconds Things that were a little different thise cycle were my boobs. Normally my boobs will be fuller and firmer after o but this cycle they just got fuller,and not firm at all like way more sqishy than usual. & i didnt o until CD 24 I still am in shock but i could not be more thankful and excited! GOD IS GOOD Peace & love and good luck to all!

12DPO BFP! The crazy things ive done this TTC cycle

Hi Lovely ladies, I have been endlessly searching through forums such as this one since my DH and i decided to TTC in Feb, foolishly we thought it wouldnt take us long to get pregnant (people who say oh you will catch so quick when you come off the pill LIE!! haha) so every cycle i try and add a few new crazy things ive read from other peoples BFP stories, which is why i felt i should post mine.. whether these things worked or this month was just our month i dont know but it certainly didnt hurt! So from my period ending to Ovulation i drank 2 glasses of watered down POM (100% Pomegrante juice) i had read that this thickens the lining making it more inviting for a egg, i also read a bit about acupuncture and about having a warm womb... so from period to ovulation i would put a lavender wheat bag that had been heated up in the microwave on my stomach for at least half an hour once a day, i also wore socks all the time as with the acupuncture they say warm feet warm womb :) I used clear blue ovulation sticks which this month did not work! i got to CD17 and still no smiley face so after running out of the CB sticks and coming to terms with possibly not ovulating this month i thought would buy some ovulation sticks of Amazon 30 + 10 PG tests for £6, i used a ov strip on CD18 and had a dark test line although not as strong as the control line so i continued to use them and noticed the line get later, suggesting i had already ovulated and CB missed it!! Thankfully we had BD every other day from the end of my period and also occasionally used Conceive plus. Because of the ovulation confusion, i also had a temp drop and then spike CD12/CD13 so i really had no clue but took the ov strips info as i had ovulated around CD17, this cycle i was also really keen to try the pineapple core theory however its supposed to be from 1-5DPO and at this point i was possibly 4DPO, but through some googling had seen it was ok up to day 7 so i had the pineapple from 4-7DPO. i had a busy weekend so didnt pay attention to much and with FF saying i had OV CD19 i just tried to not stress then - 7DPO (classing CD17 as ov) i noticed my left breast had increased in size as had the nipple, it was a tad sore but nothing much 8DPO i got a few spots on my chin which i dont normally get 10DPO after BD when i wiped i noticed alot of pink tinged CM which i assumed was the start of AF, later that day i got a raging headache which i never get but again put it down to the heat in the UK at the mo which i also blamed on a few nights of awful sleep 11DPO i thought i would just try one of these tests, i had read headaches, spots, pink after BD, swollen breasts could all be signs.... i thought i could see the faintest ever barely a line but thought it was me wishing too hard so i threw it away.... that day after a BM there was bright red blood and i thought definitely AF but then nothing... so the next day i took another test and the line was darker!! so im now 14DPO and had my 3rd day of clear positives! So im planning to tell DH tonight now i know its not a fluke! Anyway i hope this helps 1 person as these forums helped me, gave me hope and now i get my own story to share :)

My Positive 6/26+++

June 10 i was supposedly ovulating. 5-15 fertile daysm but i teated 7dpo & 10dpo etc according to the Cherry App. I was inconsistently taking birth control in May. Which set my supposed Expected Period & ovulation schedule. Immediatly my 1yr old 7 mth was clinging to Mommy. My usual HEIGHTENED SENSE OF SMELL, DREAMS, ACID REFLUX, HEART BURN, LIGHT CRAMPS, TENDER BREAST BACK & FORTH: NOW BOTH ARE MUCH MORE TENDER, in first week after ovulation, even, pepsi & doritos (life long love/addiction) became bad tasting, just like with daughter in 2016. Slight craving/desire, some undecipherable yet, some simple like wanting onion in things and pickle in things. Exhausted at 6/7pm AGAIN like always. Stuffy nose (not taking allergy med Loratidine for now) i have about 7 $tree tests getting darker and more positive from june 26+. Took 2 digital tests this weekend.. saturday evening and unday morning. PREGANT. But they already went away and died i guess so i threw those out. Yay to that $6.98! Had appt sched for 17th july but sonce according to lmp wont be 8 weeks until 2 days shy of that, appt is monday 23rd to see if all is acvurate & healthy. Seems legit. Still always nauseas, needing food, getting full quicker as with daughter, tired & exhausted early and often. Teeth hurt/super sensitive, milky taste, throbbing feeling.. Oh Im COLD all over like I was with my daughter, Feet cold. & We keep AC on even in wonter..so being cold is unusual for me!!! I probably missed some stuff. Good luck! Baby dust *

Bfp 12dpo

Hi everyone! Been stalking this page for a month now (and 2years ago with my first baby) and promised to myself to write down my story if i get a bfp:) soo... long story short, have a 15 month old beautiful baby girl and when she was like 10-11 month old we decided to try for another one. I was one of those lucky ones who doesnt get a period unless she stops breastfeeding... so on 26th of may we quit completely with no problems and 10 days later i got my period, the same type i get since i was 14. What was new to me,ovulation spotting around cycle day16 and 18. I ovulated on day 19, always feel strong cramps and cm etc. Did the monkey dance every second day since cycle day 11.My symptoms were painful and sore armpits about a week after ovulation, terrible acne, round ligament pain(this is my third pregnancy ). Got bfn 9dpo. I really really hope this baby sticks:) best of luck to you guys

BFP after 3-4 months!!! What I Did...TTC#1

Hi all, I always said to myself that when I get my first BFP, I would make sure to post my story on TWW. I had been a long time lurker during the past year and reading everyone's posts made me feel less stressed(well, maybe at times I made myself more stressed because I kept comparing myself to others and drove myself crazy)! Anyhow, I got my first BFP yesterday morning. I used the easy@home test strips from Amazon that come in a 50 pack of OPKs and 20 HPTs. My cycles were irregular(I would skip 2 months or they would range between 30day-40day cycles) when I was younger, but now my cycles would be 40-45 days. I have never been on BC either, no IUD or meds or anything at all. My husband and I were praying to get pregnant last year, but our timing was off and I was not precise on catching my ovulation day. Up until January 2018, I really made it a point to try everything I could to increase our chances. January, Feb and March came and went by and still no BFP. My luteal phase is 14-15 days. DH and I are 29. Here is what I did differently this time around: 1) Really make it a point to be precise and take BBT at the same time every morning and in the same location (right pocket under my tongue)/position. (My previous cycles I would wake up earlier or later than my target time and it screwed everything up) 2) I started WORKING OUT. Ladies, I really think this helped me tremendously. Previous to this cycle, I had not gone to the gym for like a year!!! For 4 weeks once my period was over, I went to the gym 3-4x/week. I did cardio for 30mins on the treadmill or elliptical and then did free weights and lifted. 3) EAT RIGHT or EAT SMARTER. Again, before this cycle I ate like crap. I ate anything and everything I wanted, you name it. After my workouts I would make a protein smoothie. This really helped me and motivated me, it was a good routine. 4) CHIA SEED AND MACA POWDER. I ate chia almost every other day and added this to my salads, eggs, and smoothies. I added the maca powder to my smoothies as well, even gave some to my hubby--couldn't even taste it! I used the Navitas brand of Maca Powder--just a teaspoon of it and you're set. It it said to help with fertility and balance hormones. My go to smoothies recipe: Choc almond milk, frozen berries like blackberries/strawberries/blueberries, banana, cup of spinach leaves, the chia and maca. 5) DITCHED THE PRESEED. I know for some, Preseed is what helped them conceive, but for my hubby and I we decided not to use it this time around. We used it in January/Feb/March and we do not think it worked for us. So this time we did not use anything. 6) BD every other day to every 3 days. This worked for us. For example, this cycle we BD'd CD24, 26, 28, 30, 34 and 35. My peak LH surge/positive OPK was on CD33. 7) Doggystyle! (TMI!!!) Previous months he would finish with me on my back, this time with me on all fours lol. Nuff said. And yes, I had my legs straight up afterwards, and a folded pillow under my pelvis for 10-15 mins. Forgot to mention we went on a vacation a week after my period ended; after our vacation that was when I started working out and eating right! I am sure vacation took my mind off the stress of TTC! I even had sangria!!! 8) PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. If you have faith in God and believe in Him, He will bless you richly. Pray without ceasing. I always thought that it would take more than a year to conceive and I always cried everytime a BFN showed and thought something was wrong. This time around I just Let Go and Let God. Trust in Him. Phew!!! Here were my symptoms: 1DPO- Nips hurt terribly (this was normal and expected for me every cycle the day after ovulation) 2DPO- Nips still hurt. Food craving for salty food like Shake Shack (normal PMS symptom that I usually get) 3DPO- Nothing unusual 4DPO- Food craving for chocolate pretzels from TJs, craved pizza and Panera (OMG I'm disgusting LOL) 5DPO- Felt a sharp pain in my lower right area at night when I stretched OUCH!! 6DPO- ABSOLUTELY NO NIP SORENESS (this completely caught my attention, because my nips usually feel sore for the duration of 1 week or more before my period comes) Dry CM like a desert lol. Craved salty junk food AGAIN -_- 7DPO- HAD ZERO symptoms. Again, no nip soreness, NO SORE OR SWOLLEN BBS at all(usually my bbs get swollen before my period for 1-2 weeks) 8DPO- Felt absolutely NORMAL in terms of bbs. CM was a tiny bit creamy/sticky. Took a 2-hour long nap on my couch- I get out of work at 3pm, fell asleep around 5pm and woke up at 7:40pm! 9DPO- Took a nap AGAIN for 1.5-2 hours. Took a huge, long pee after my nap WTF. After that, I noticed immediate bloating in my tummy, the area around my belly button felt so soft and squishy and bloaty! Literally felt like I gained 10lbs after my nap. 10DPO- Nothing unusual. 11DPO- Craved salty food like my usual PMS symptoms. I ate samosas from Whole Foods and an everything bagel with cream cheese and chives! WHAT?! I also had 2 BMs, odd.
