BFP at 9dpo after 4 cycles while breastfeeding

I always read these stories a lot when I was in the TTW, it was such a nice way to pass time and get hopeful. I always told myself I would add mine when I got a BFP because I didn't with my first. I have long cycles and didn't ovulate until CD25! I changed it up a bit this month by using pre-seed and soy isoflavones and having sex every other day from the end of my period until confirmed ovulation. We should have done the day after ovulation as well, but we were too tired lol. Now for the good stuff!!

CD25(ovulation day) Strong cramps on the left side today and for the past few days, no other symptoms.

1dpo- Big temperature jump this morning, .70! CM is dry/sticky, cervix feels hard and closed and at a weird angle, loose stools, slight nausea (I always get loose stools and a little bit of nausea the day after O, nothing new for me. I assume its from the sudden spike in progesterone) Lower left back pain the evening. These signs tell me that I'm 1dpo.

2dpo- More loose stools, no other symptoms

3dpo- Nothing. Got my crosshairs on the Fertility Friend app today, ovulation confirmed!

4dpo- Nothing

5dpo- Another temp jump. I had bad dreams that was husband was having an affair. I NEVER remember my dreams upon waking and the only other time I had those nightmares was when I was pregnant with my daughter. This was my first inking that we may have caught it this month.

6dpo- TMI alert for this one; My cervix was VERY LOW. It felt almost like a uterine prolapse. It was not even a full fingertip into the vagina and the entrance felt swollen. It was honestly pretty alarming, but I remember having a very low cervix a few days before I got a BFP with my DD. This was the second sign that made me hopeful. I also had creamy EWCM. I always have this in the luteal phase, but this time it was slightly yellow. I *think* this was implantation day.

7dpo- Still had the same really low cervix and swollen feeling. More yellow tinted creamy EWCM

8dpo- Cervix is now back to normal and CM is drier. I took an Easy@home dipstick pregnancy test with FMU and it was stark white. I felt I was out, but reminded myself that it was still really early. No symptoms or signs other than feeling moody/weepy. I cried watching while Watching Moana.

9dpo- Faint positive with an Easy@home pregnancy test with FMU! It was sooooo light, but I knew any line within the time frame was probably a positive. Started getting excited. Tested with a Walmart First Signal test using the same urine and got a much more obvious line! I love these test! I now wonder if the First Signal one would have been positive yesterday. Still feeling moody, my husband commented that I was being short and rude with him. Oops..

10dpo- Darker lines on both brands of test. OMG, its real! I'm pregnant! My daughter is going to a big sister! Baby number 2 is on the way, due the end of December.

I'm now 18dpo (4w4d) and symptoms still aren't bad. Sore boobs every so often. My DD doesn't want to nurse anymore, either due to my milk drying up or a change in taste(does that happen this early on?) Lack of appetite, I only want Mexican food and buffalo chicken dip, but no real nausea yet. Still feeling moody and I have a complete lack of sex drive.

Keep cooking little one, we can't wait to meet you.

BFP after miscarriage- lots of symptoms I've never had!

I had a mc on January 2nd at 8 weeks and got a BFP after late ovulation on the first cycle trying. I had 5 days of ewcm, painful ovaries, and cramping but only barely positive OPKS around normal ovulation time. Once they stopped, I had horribly painful right ovary, especially during sex. I thought it was a cyst or a sign the egg released because I've read after a miscarriage, normally non painful things could become more painful and noticeable. 2 days later, all the ovulation signs came back but were 10x worse, including the "cyst" pain. This time I got a blazing positive OPK! 5 more days passed of symptoms, then my cervix dropped and hardened. I felt bummed because if it stayed up, I'd feel more hopeful that I'd get a BFP. But 2 days later it rose! I still felt a little like we missed it because I was tricked by the first round of ovulation symptoms and we stopped BD for a couple days. BUT, like with my other pregnancies, all of a sudden it was like a wave came over me and made me feel entirely different. I knew I was pregnant and took an HPT 8dpo, March 1, and a faint positive showed. I've taken one every day since and the line is still there! Here are my symptoms:

"fake" ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, right ovary twinges, high and open cervix, -OPKs
real ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, lots of right ovary pain, what I thought was cyst pain, high and open (but not as much as the week before) cervix. 2 days of +OPKs
1dpo: the "cyst" pain FINALLY went away. This is how I know I finally ovulated. -OPK
2dpo: ewcm drying up, high and soft cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
3dpo: ewcm drying up, low and hard cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
4dpo: totally dry cm, low and hard cervix, lots of ovary twinges and abdomen cramps
5dpo: cervix rose and softened, totally dry cm, TONS of ovary pain and cramps (implantation?)
6dpo: high and soft cervix, totally dry cm, ovary pain fading
7dpo: high and soft cervix, cm becoming watery and more abundant, no more ovary pain
8dpo: high and soft cervix, more watery cm but not too much, hit with an "I'm pregnant" flash while shopping. FIVE +HPTs! I needed to make sure :)
9dpo: high and soft cervix, lots of watery cm, +HPT, exhausted
10pdo: cervix lowered, hardened, and it feels opened (what?!) nervous it will end.. tons of cm, sore boobs start, exhausted
11dpo: cervix rose again and softened, tons of cm, sore boobs, so tired i feel like I've been hit by a train
12dpo: stopped checking cervix because it was driving me crazy, increasingly sore and slightly swollen boobs, TIRED, and tons of slippery cm! I am feeling moody and snapping at people when I normally wouldn't, trouble sleeping
13dpo: sore and swollen boobs. hurts to wear a bra. lots of cm, tired! have the "just woke up" feeling all morning

Good luck to everyone!

BFP with almost NO Symptoms (except EWCM on 8dpo)

I wanted to share my story because I was 100% positive I was not pregnant. I just didn't FEEL pregnant. I searched for stories that said "no symptoms," and they were very rare. Here is how it went for me. We conceived in Southeast Asia, and I assumed the wacky time changes messed up my cycle. I missed the positive OPK result because I never knew if I had even ovulated.

1-6dpo: zero symptoms
7-9dpo: restless sleep but I also had jet lag from the trip to Asia
8dpo: Egg white cervical mucus. Not much, but enough to notice. I considered implantation at this point, but I couldn't find much backing on the internet for this, so I assumed I was having an anovulatory or irregular cycle.
9dpo: woke with the certainty that I was NOT pregnant. My CM was wet though, and that was enough to keep me reading and guessing.
10dpo: super duper faint line on a test.
11dpo: BFP

Now that I have the BFP, I can feel twinges in my uterus. They're slight, but they're there. I seriously did not have any symptoms leading up to today though. I never felt pregnant. I was certain I was not. Just wanted to share to keep hope alive for some of you. <3

BFP after Surprise Late Ovulation!

We have been using FAM for contraception, and I've always been pretty regular so there was rarely any guessing as to my fertile phases.

I had been taking my BBT every morning for months on end, but it was stressing me out because I would obsess over every single little dip or rise in my charts. So, with my husband's blessing, I gave up on temping a few months ago and relied solely on other ovulation cues: EWCM and ovulation pain-- both of which are regular indicators for me...

...until THIS MONTH! I could have sworn I'd ovulated right on time, around CD 13. I had several days of copious EWCM and some very noticeable ovulation pain. Usually, these symptoms clear up suddenly as soon as ovulation is done. But in this month's case...I started getting clear, slick CM each day, beginning around CD 16. (Weird because I usually dry up right after ovulation). But it wasn't enough like true EWCM to raise my suspicions too much. And, I reasoned with myself, hadn't I already CLEARLY ovulated this month? Meh, it's fine, it's probably some weird fluke. [We resumed daily unprotected DTD around this time as well!]

But on the night of CD 20 I started having what were unmistakably ovulation-like pains on my right side...followed by some very obvious EWCM the next morning. After doing some slightly panicked research online, I realized that my body just might have "geared up" for ovulation at the normal time this month, and then failed to actually follow through with it, until now.

Oo boy.

So I started tracking my symptoms by DPO, based on this new estimated ovulation date (either CD 20 or 21):

CD 22: 1/2 dpo:
- some right side pain
- a few tiny left side pains (!)
- gob of gummy/stretchy CLEAR cm
- slick clear thin cm
- In the evening: out of nowhere my left knee joint started really hurting.

CD 23: 2/3 dpo:
- dry cm
- slept restlessly
- angry
- craving sugar
- fleeting vague crampiness
- moody
- my stomach got super knotted-up and nauseated tonight during a discussion about vaccinations with my husband. This felt like anxiety but was really weird because it’s been a while since I’ve felt anxiety nausea about anything.
- pounding heartbeat tonight
- made cupcakes from a mix because I was craving them

CD 24: 3/4 dpo:
- still dry cm
- woke up with heart still pounding — didn’t feel particularly anxious about anything though
- assorted abdominal zings and pings
- nausea this evening before dinner
- Heart palpitations and nausea and chills after DTD tonight --- DTD was also painful internally.

CD 25: 4/5 dpo:
- cm is wetter, kind of milky (in AM)
- then cm dried up again
- Crampy legs and abdomen this morning, like typical vague PMS crampiness
- Stabbing left boob pain this morning for a while
- felt a bit dizzy/spacey early afternoon, while simultaneously (and suddenly) a bit nauseated. This passed.
- stabbing/throbbing and significant pain near right hip bone late tonight, this lasted a few minutes and MIGHT have been just gas since I was having other gas pains around that time. [I think now this might have been implantation!]
- bought a bag of sour Skittles and ate half of it late tonight (the other half in the morning)
- lower right back feels “cricky” and it feels good to stretch it

CD 26: 5/6 dpo:
- misophonia/irritability/frustration in high swing (a typical PMS symptom for me)
- some crampiness
- cm still basically dry as a bone, saw a tiny tiny bit of yellowish-green mucus, which is also not unusual for me
- some mild heartburn
- vertigo while sitting down and working very still at my desk
- somewhat gassy
- anxiety and OCD flaring up

CD 27: 6/7 dpo:
- right uterine pinging pains for a while this morning — this has happened before so not too special
- CM is picking up. Got a noticeable piece of stringy white stuff this morning — this has also happened multiple times at this point in the cycle in past months, not special
- also got multiple noticeable fingertip-fuls of white creamy cm (finger to cervix)
- Intermittent abdominal cramping
- Mood is somewhat better.
- A bit of mild heartburn
- A few left boob stabbing pains
- basically began sobbing happy tears just listening to sweet love songs while looking at photos of my husband and me, and crying because I love him so much (haha)
- Convinced AF was on the way. Horrible "pre-cramping" in my abs, back, and legs tonight, and I feel like crap.
- Several minutes of heart palpitations late tonight, really bothersome and concerning

Finally me!

So I have to say thank Jesus! I know it’s because of him my 10 month infertility has come to an end.

I know that may not seem like a long time but after the doctor told me I didn’t really have a chance a getting pregnant I knew I had to talk to a higher power i.e. God!

Details:
Cd 21: Dreamed I was at the doctor 38 weeks pregnant.

I am 30 soon to be 31 in 3 months!!!

Didn't even think I was pregnant!! No symptoms at all!!!

Hi everyone, (sorry for the long post)
I decided to write this, bcuz like so many other women I would search and search and read for any little clue any little chance of hope.
I got my BFP on 12/30/2017 but I would have bet ANYTHING that I wasn't!
A little back story: I'm 28 DH is 30 we have been married for 5 years but have been dating since I was 12 yrs old (6th grade). We don't have any children and didn't start trying until 2 years ago.
Imagine my shock when it wasn't happening right away. I used opks and temping but nothing! I cried and stressed every cycle. I would think of the worst possible thing that could be wrong with me. After a year of trying I decided to buy some preseed and the first month BAM, BFP in Feb 2017!! I was over the moon! I had so many symptoms from the moment of ovulation, super sore boobies, lots of extra cm, dizzy, nauseous, heightened sense of smell and I wanted to jump DH bones all the time lol.. I did notice that my lines were faint at 1st but got darker within a few days, I didn't think anything of it.
Well I went for a scan in March when I should have been 8 weeks according to my LMP but I told my Dr I ovulate late and that according to my calculations I should be about 7 weeks, but the baby was only measuring at 6 weeks. So she sent me off to get a TVUS one week later. My heart felt crushed but I still kept positive. I went to my appointment and I should have now been 8/9 weeks, my baby was still at 6weeks 1day with no heartbeat. I cried and cried. I decided to let my baby pass naturally and on my birthday when I should have been 11 weeks it finally did. It was a tough and mental/physical rollercoaster to say the least. My DH supported me through everything.
So a month after that, I started trying again. I did not use preseed and month after month was depresses when af would show up. I went to the Dr again in Oct and she said there was nothing wrong with me and that if by March 2018 I still wasn't pregnant we would look more into it. But I always wanted to have a baby before 30! And March is my bday month. I was annoyed and upset. Well I moved into a new house in Nov and I thought I was pregnant bcuz my boobies were super sore and I had extra cm. But a week later af showed up..
December 2018
Ok my cycles are 35 days I know I ovulate between CD 19-22 and decided this month to use preseed again and used it on my highly fertile days up until ovulation.
1DPO - 14DPO NOTHING no sore boobies, no extra cm. Actually dry! Usually even when AF shows I have a little bit of cm. But nothing! No dizziness or heightened sense of smell. Nothing!!! I was so sure I wasn't pregnant.
9DPO - took a wondfo test cuz I have a bunch Neg.
13DPO - took another wondfo bcuz I was a little crampy and back ached, but that's totally normal for me b4 af shows, and nothing STARK WHITE!! I cried and felt deflated I just don't think it will ever happen for me. My wonderful DH wanted me to get my mind off of it, since I cried all night telling him I wasn't pregnant and I never would be able to give us a child. (He is so supportive always telling me it's ok and if we don't have a child that we have each other and our dog Arcric). So he planned a beautiful trip the next day,
We went horse back riding, drank a piña colada and went swimming. (The horse I rode was pregnant and was so lovely and we'll behaved, there was also a pitbull on the property and the owners said she was very aggressive, but she came right up to me and wanted me to pet her and she followed me everywhere, the owners were very surprised, I think animals have that sense and know before we even do). I had a great time and went to bed happy and sore from the horse that night lol.
15DPO - ok af is a day late didn't think to much about it bcuz sometimes she is a day or 2 late or early. Buuut I have a FRER test in my drawer that I had been saving. I decided screw it and used it. I didn't want to look, I had my eyes shut and peeked through my fingers, I almost fell down! There it was the line I've been waiting to see! It wasn't super dark, but clearly there! My BFP I was so so excited!!!
I went out and bought a CB digital and it said pregnant 2-3weeks! The wondfo tests still came up really light, almost invisible. And I did another FRER 6 days later from my 1st positive test and the line was so much darker that it took up most the dye and the control line was lighter lol

BFP at 11 DPO (2nd baby) -- barely any symptoms this time

I have an 11 month old. Been ttc #2 for 4 cycles. I've never had a normal cycle - it'd come every 2 months or so. I was lucky when I got pregnant last year because it was the first try. But after I stopped breastfeeding at 6 months, my cycles were JACKED UP. Cycles lasted 52 days, then 34 days, then this one is supposed to be 30 days... but now I'm pregnant! First pregnancy I had nausea once, tender boobs, going to the restroom a lot - and these were symptoms BEFORE my BFP. This time, nothing except implantation pinch and spotting. Every pregnancy IS different!!

Bfp at 9dpo

Hey ladies! I've literally stalked this board for years now. Shocked that it's finally my turn- and it's still very early days. I over analysed everything this tww- even actually before I ovulated.

So background...

I'm 31, my fiancé is 39.
We've not really been trying but not preventing, we both said if it happens then we'd be over the moon, but there's no rush.
My cycles are normally 28-30 days long. Normally I ovulate mid cycle- so cd14 for 28, cd15 for 30. I track temps and monitor cm.
This month I ovulated late on cd19- my temps had been really up and down this month so I think I tried to ovulate before but it never happened so I ovulated late.
I will say now- I wasn't sure whether I had ovulated and I started symptom spotting before I had actually ovulated (lol), so ladies, I know it's hard but don't drive yourself mental.

So the symptoms-

O Day- BD twice- so I know this was the day I conceived- my partner was away for the rest of my fertile window!
LOADS of ewcm- was much more than I normally have and extra stretchy. Normally mine is only really watery so this was a curve ball for me.
Mild O cramps/pulls/pinches.

1dpo:
Woke up with sore throats and headache. Weird.
Mild O cramps continued but I was hyper aware of everything at this point.
Overwhelmingly tired.
Heartburn at night.
Temp spiked massively this morning also- which is odd for me, I normally go up for O day and then it's more of a steady climb.
NO CM

2dpo:
Temp goes up again.
Hot flashes at night.
Sore throat continues.
Still very tired.
Stomach cramps a bit stronger- mainly on left side where I ovulated from.

3dpo:
Sore throat and runny nose in the morning again.
Hot!
Cramps are mild but feel like electric rather than af type feelings.
Legs ached behind my knees at night so I couldn't get to sleep for a while.
Had a dream about having a baby- told my partner and he said I was obsessed at the moment. Maybe I was!

4dpo:
Sore throat and runny nose continue in the morning.
HUGE temp spike- it's the highest I've ever had since I started temping.
No CM in underwear but a little inside.
Noticed more after a BM and it was thick and white- I don't normally have this. I'm normally dry straight after O and get more at 6dpo.

5dpo:
Minor temp drop of 0.3 degrees.
Minor cramps continue. This was weird because I don't normally cramp after ovulation until a couple of days before AF.
Headache when I woke up.
Ears kept popping- don't know if this was related but I noted it!
I was extremely anxious and tearful today. Couldn't stop crying.

6dpo:
Temp goes down again but still above coverline
LOADS of thick creamy cm- again, I don't normally get this and it was really weird- it kind of held its shape. A bit like jelly but white! There was a lot of it, but not all day, mainly in the morning.
My hair was SO GREASY and I'd washed it the previous day. It looked like it hadn't been washed in a week.
My skin was also a bit slimy on my face.
Another weird one- and I've noticed this one other time when I had a chemical pregnancy so it might be totally unique for me- but my hands peel- like the skin on my fingers peels off like it's sunburnt. It's really bizarre!
TMI- I couldn't stop pooping today. I think I went 4 times in 2 hours. Normally im a one or two a day girl.
I CRIED ALOT TODAY. And was really anxious. I normally am quite chill till two days before AF.
Electric type cramps in the pm and they were low down and in my uterus. Had a couple of stabs near my ovaries but they weren't painful, more an OH!

7dpo:
Woke up at 3am and couldn't for the life of me get back to sleep.
Temp went back up to the highest it's been (37C)
Peeling fingers continue.
Thick creamy CM
Electric pangs in uterus and ovaries again in the pm for 5 mins.
Had pretty intense cramps briefly at night also on both sides. Sharper than AF cramps for me. I was lying on the sofa so I was really aware of every tug.
Bad nausea in the PM and was nearly sick.
Uterus feels full.

8dpo:
Woke up again in the middle of the night but managed to go back to sleep.
Temp went up a little again.
Mild nausea.
Hot flash in the morning. I took my temp out of interest and it beeped that I had a fever.
Emotional again- I cried at something on tv and I knew I was being ridiculous.
Intense dreams.

Second bfp with same EDD as first child :)

First of all, thanks everyone for posting your stories! They give hope and help pass the time in the dreaded TWW :)
So, I'm 30, DH is 33 and we are happy not to have encountered difficulties in our TTC journey so far. We have a 16m old son, who is now going to have a little brother/sister next year :)
With my son things happend quickly, I got pregnant during the second TTC cycle. My only symptom was breast tenderness (when poking only) from around 4dpo and got a positive midday on 10dpo. With this one I expected the same. We started trying in June 2017 and I stopped breastfeeding in September. I got my first PPAF in July after stopping Cerazette (many horror stories about it on the internet, but I took it for 10 months and no complications coming off!) My cycles were 28-34 days but I suspected a short LP (around 10-11 days). A new (compared to before my first pregnancy) post ovulation symptom for me was nausea (got me excited a couple of times, booo!).

Here are my symptoms the second time around:
Cd21 ovulation (pretty uncomfortable ovary cramps, a bit like gas pain but only once a month :)
We bedded for a week before it and on the day of O.
From 2dpo nausea came (as usual for me), mild af cramps (a new symptom) and no breast or nipple pain (had it in previous cycles so I started hoping that maybe this is it ;)
7dpo my toothpaste tasted wierd
8dpo tested with FRER and faint BFP (stared at some BFNs before so was sure there was a line)

Retested in the coming days and it grew darker! DH doesn't know yet, easier to wait for and plan the announcement with #2 ;) Funny thing is my LMP starting day is Sept 25 just like with my son. Maybe I'll give birth the same day? Lol Good luck to you ladies and baby dust to everyone!
