Negative Test... Then a BFP With No Symptoms

I've read this blog for the past two weeks and have been eager to share my story once I actually had one to share. I've been TTC for our 3rd and recently came off of an IUD. My doc said to wait two full cycles before trying. We did, and with two 28 regular cycles behind me we tried every other day for one week hoping to hit my ovulation. My period came due and no show. I took a pregnancy test - NEGATIVE. I had no symptoms and still don't. But still no period, confused. Now one week later a faint BFP!!!! Going to test again but very happy.

Note, I was so anxious to test the first time I tested at night after drinking a ton of water the very first day of my missed period. My advice follow the testing directions and wait as long as you can to test. I used FRPT. Also, I think I may have ovulated much later than expected, as my normal cycles pre-mirena were always 35-42 days.

BFP Almost a Year After Greatest Loss Imaginable

January of this year I lost my baby girl to Interrupted SIDS at 10.5 weeks, which basically means when my husband found her she was still alive and the paramedics interrupted the death process by reviving her after 45min of CPR, but she couldn't breathe on her own and would never come off life support, so my husband and I made the hardest decision a parent could make and said good-bye after 3days in the NICU. At first I would never want another baby, then I would be asking my husband for one. When he finally agreed that it would be the best for me healing wise to have another baby to fill my ache to be a mommy, my cycle wouldn't cooperate. It took 3 months after our loss for me to have a period as I was breastfeeding when we lost her.

My cycles were strange, I had 3 in 2 months, then didn't have one for 3months, I blamed this on my anti-depressants that I had started after losing our baby. With doctors permission I got off the meds and took some provera to restart my cycle. After 6 weeks and no sign of af or a bfp I went back to the doctor. I had been taking my bbt and checking cm so I knew I ovulated but my period never came. After testing my LH and FSH they confirmed I had ovulated but still no period. I started charting my bbt again cuz the Dr. wanted to see the chart at my next appt in a month. He said at that point if I hadn't had a period we would get more aggressive and probably do clomid. I'm 21, so having fertility issues on top of losing a baby was putting me in a downward spiral, but I kept with my charting. I noticed another jump in temp 2 weeks later and hoped that I skipped a period and was ovulating again. We bd'd around that day and I hoped for a period so I knew there wasn't something wrong with me.

8dpo I noticed a temp dip that rose the next day and stayed high.
10dpo I start crying all the time, figured it was because all my friends were having babies.
11dpo Getting worse, abd cramping
12dpo abd cramping, still very upset, huge fight with hubby, tears all day, started thinking I was prego because this happened with my daughter too.
13dpo faint 2nd line, don't believe it so dip 2 more strips. All look the same. Call DH and tell him then text him a pic of the test. Cry for the first time in a year out of happiness! Prenatals!
14dpo take another test just in case, getting darker.
15dpo doctor confirm! follow up next week for another hcg levels test!

Hoping for a sticky bean and a healthy baby to keep!!

BFP with Clomid

I was diagnosed with mild PCOS. I was put on Clomid and injectibles. Below are my symptoms for both pregnancies:

Pregnancy 1
DPO1 onwards - Sore breasts
DPO6 - Woke up in the middle of the night with sharp pain in tummy (suspecting it's implantation)
DPO8 - Very sore and bleeding gums
DPO12 - Shivering in the middle of the night
DPO16 - Tested positive
Miscarriage a few days later

Pregnancy 2
DPO1 onwards - Sore breasts
DPO9 - Sore and bleeding gums
DPO18 - Tested positive

For me, the give away were the sore breasts and bleeding gums as usually the soreness of my breasts will disappear about a week after DPO.

35 yrs Old BFP First Try!

I have a son who is 17 from a previous relationship but my hubby does not have any kids.
We have been together for almost 4 years. I fell pregnant about 2 yrs ago and lost it at 8 weeks. I was heavily overweight and decided to lose some b4 trying again. I had bariatric sleeve surgery 4 months ago and have lost 33 kilos (72 pounds). Since it can take up to a year at my age to fall we thought we would start now. So I bought some OPK's and HPT's and what do u know - BFP! at 9 dpo. I thought I was out so I ordered some more tests online (what a waste!).

My cycle was wonky this time as a lot was going on - I ovulated a lot later than usual, my body would gear up then nothing. Finally the day before I was due to go on a trip in another state I got a positive OPK so we BD's that night and the next afternoon b4 I left. I ovulated while I was out of town.

CD 20 - + OPK bd evening
CD 21 - +OPK bd afternoon
CD 23 - ovulation dip
CD 24 - thermal shift
1-3 DPO - nothing
4 DPO - cramps and spotting (never spotted here b4)
5 DPO - more cramps, fatigued and gassy
6 DPO - gassy, yellow CM
7 DPO - Negative test - i know too early!! Yellow CM
8 DPO - cramps fatigue and dizziness yellow CM
9 DPO - fatigue and dizziness
10 DPO - BFP with IC and FRER.

I'm now 14 DPO and I had more cramps but they have settled today. I have been dizzy on standing and emotionally crazy! My heart rate has increased and my cervical mucus is wet but creamy.

I am off to get bloods done in the morning to confirm. Stick baby stick.

Hope all you ladies TTC get your +'s soon. I'm proof that its possible in your 30's to conceive right away. I have diabetes, high blood pressure and am still overweight but had no trouble.

BFP!

Ok so I've been stalking this website for the past few months and thought I'd share our BFP experience!!! This is our 3rd month ttc and we're both 25 years old. The only things I did differently this month were charting my BBT and not running as hard as I normally do. And, I actually thought I ovulated a week early but apparently not!
0-3dpo- more cm than normal but didn't think anything of it and bleeding gums when brushing teeth which never happens but it was a new brush so I dismissed this too
4dpo- had this weird feeling before bed. Felt like someone had jumped out at scared me but I was laying in bed and just felt anxious which is way weird for me
5-9dpo- sore boobs and cramps but this is standard before af
10dpo- huge temp drop in morning and I swear I saw some spotting but wrote it off as "pregnancy goggles" :)
11-16dpo- no clear signs of pregnancy (so I thought) had slight nausea all week but DH brought home the flu on Tuesday so I just thought I was catching the bug
17dpo- nothing new- boobs started to hurt less and less and no more cramping. Definitely thought I was out this month but was shocked my temps stayed high. Talked to DH and he thought it was just a late period but something told me I should still test since I was now 3 days late
Also- Moreau flowers smell repulsive!
18dpo-(today) finally broke down and tested even though I was certain it was going to be negative. Decided to put contacts in while I waited the three minutes but peaked and couldn't Believe my eyes! BFP!!!! Even thought it was 5am- I woke up my DH. He was kinda groggy soooo I just threw out there "since you're awake- we're pregnant." :)
Today- cramps, egg white cm, and stomach is always growling but I don't feel hungry

So here I am, 18dpo and pregnant! Fingers crossed this little guy sticks!!!! Good luck to everyone!!!

BFP on CD86 and 10 months TTC after IUD

We started TTC in January 2012 but never thought that this would be so difficult, as my DS(3) was an oopsie. After removing the IUD, my cycles seemed to come about every 30 days, but I wasn't charting or using OPK's or checking CM. I had no idea what any of that was. I thought very woman ovulated on CD14! What a joke! It wasn't until August that I began researching TTC and it was because I had a 47-day cycle. I decided to start taking pre-natal vitamins, monitor my CM, and chart my temps. My cycle from hell started on September 1, 2012. By CD50ish I was convinced that there was something seriously wrong with me. I kept gearing up to O but it just wouldn't happen, but at least I knew I hadn't O'd....yet. It finally happened on CD71.

BD before bed on CD69, layed down and went right to sleep (those guys had all night to swim in the right direction!!!)

9DPO- dip in bbt
12DPO- super-bloating and very light brown tinted CM once when wiped
13DPO- AF-is-coming crampiness, bbs tender, vivid dreams
14DPO- bbs sore and vivid dreams
15DPO- highest temp of entire cycle, poas with e.p.t. digi and BFP!

Learning about my body, charting and ALOT of patience was the key to this pregnancy. I could have not gotten through all of this without the support of this website and all the wonderful women on the TTC boards. BABY DUST!!!!!!! XoXo

6dpo - Cramps
7dpo - Cramps
8dpo - Cramps /white CM
9dpo - Cramps /white CM temp dip in the morning wet CM.
10dpo - Major backache all day, feeling dizzy , lightheaded and nauseous. (alarm bells start ringing) got excited and tested BFN
11dpo - Back ache gone...lots of white CM, very light headed and nauseous, nipples starting to hurt, got excited again at 11am and took test, faint positive....
12dpo - Today.... sore nips, lightheaded, tired..... BFP at 7am this morning with clear blue.
The TWW is torture, I hope this helps someone. Because you just want to know right!

BFP With Late Ovulation

Hi ladies,

Hubby and I have been TTC #2 for the last nine months, finally got my BFP on Sunday (11/11/2012).

For the last six months my cycle was 30 days, initially I used OPK's with strong positives just before day 16 of my cycle.
It was getting soooo frustrating with BFN every month. I just couldn't understand why I wasn't getting my BFP because our timing was perfect every month.
Eventually I did some research and decided to try natural progesterone cream just in case mine was too low. The first month I used it BFN, but I decided to use it again anyway. Finally this month BFP, soooo thrilled:-
The strange thing is though that this month I don't think I ovulated on day 16 but rather day 19 because I had a negative blood test at 12dpo which I now think was actually 9dpo!

1-4 dpo - nothing
5 dpo - got the worst sinus infection ever, didn't want to take any meds in case we hit it on the head this month
6 dpo - still suffering with sinuses, feeling feverish. decided to take some sinutab and used a nasal spray
7 dpo - really bad ovulation pain on the right, worse when urinating, thought it was strange to be ovulating so late, still wasn't feeling well so we didn't do the deed
8 dpo - really emotional, sinus infection getting worse,
9 dpo - decided to go to the doc, did a test early morning BFN (at that stage I thought I was 12 dpo cos AF was due in two days), went to the doc, she thought I could still be pregnant so she ordered a blood test, much to my dismay it was BFN. started antibiotics
10 dpo - sinus infection starting to improve, really moody and emotional! cried when my two year old hit me, hubby thought I was being unreasonable
11 dpo - feel really tired, eyes were heavy at 3 in the afternoon.
12 dpo - feel really light headed, I was borderline diabetic in my last pregnancy and my insulin levels have been high since so I just thought my sugar levels were low, my two year old was extremely clingy to me which was sooo strange cos she is a daddy's girls
13 dpo - at this stage AF is two days late but it could be the progesterone cream that delayed it, after the negative blood test didn't think I was pregnant at all decided to do a test anyway and much to my surprise a light BFP, We were so thrilled, this is when I started doing the calc and realized that the pain I felt at 7dpo (which I thought was 10dpo at the time) could have been implantation cramps. No wonder the blood test was negative.
14 dpo - another BFP, still light though.
15 dpo - another BFP, another brand also light but a little darker. Feeling really hot at night.

Good luck to all you ladies TTC, it took me two and half years to fall pregnant with #1 so I know how hard it can be.

BFP One Month Post Varicocele Repair!

Been trying to conceive for 18 months, diagnosed with male factor infertility and pcos in June. Urologist confirmed varicocele in DH and repaired it on 9/26/12. Found out I am pregnant today, only 1.5 months after the procedure! My tww symptoms are as follows:

1-7dpo... Not a thing
8dpo... Small amount of blood noted in toilet after urinating (implantation bleeding I presume)
9dpo... Mild nipple sensitivity, increased cm
10dpo... Mild breast tenderness, mild cramping, thinking af is imminent
11dpo... Moderate breast tenderness, typical pms for me
12dpo... Breasts hurt a lot! More than usual, but still not convinced
13dpo... Breasts still really sore, peeing a lot, took a hpt on a whim and got a BFP!

This is proof that the varicocele surgery works! Our RE told us it probably wouldn't help but it sure did, and fast too. I just hope this little one holds on tight!!!!

Baby dust to all!

6th Month Lucky

I found this site really useful so I promised myself I would post when it was my turn.

Nothing much different this month, second month with Pre-Seed, always used acupuncture for different things and had to get a HSG to check up on major surgery in my stomach last year (checking on scar tissue). I've pretty much spotted every month since I came off the pill leading up to AF. I definitely recommend OPK to anyone so helpful (just make sure it's a good brand)

Here's what I can remember:

Ovulated around CD 20/21
CD 29 red blood in the evening for about 1 hour then gone
CD 30 light brown when wiping (acupuncturist said my pulse was very slippery, have had this before but not this strong)
CD 31 red blood in the morning with first pee then gone
Usually brown spotting would continue to AF but nothing from here
CD 31-37 soooo bloated, what I can only describe as a weird stitch feeling in my lower tummy, always hungry, bad reflux, bit irritable and gassy.
CD 37 was scared to test but gave it a crack, two dark lines instantly BFP finally yay!

I know it sounds annoying but I really did just have a weird feeling, had one realistic dream I found out I was pregnant and I think that's about it. It definitely happens when the time is right as hard as it is to be patient in the meantime.
