BFP with Late Ovulation

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

Got My BFP Today

For the last two weeks I thought I was going mad. This is our 3rd Month TTC. I'm 32 and DH 34. Last month I was sure I was pregnant so I got my hopes up massively, when AF came I was crushed. This month I had so many signs.... and got my BFP... 1 dpo- 6dpo - Not much to report except an increase in CM, mostly creamy or wet. Never noticed this before. 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.

Two Lines!!! 6th Cycle TTC

I'm 27 and DH is 29, married two years. I went off BCP at the end of February after being on it for six straight years. It took me 6 weeks to get my first period off the pill and then we started TTC. My cycles started off as 31-32 days, then they jumped to 35-36 days which is closer to what they were before BCP so I wasn’t too surprised. But those long cycles are torturous when TTC! This month I got a positive OPK on CD 21, but didn’t see my temp spike until CD 24. We BD’d on CD 13, 16, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23. Then I left for an 8 day work trip. My work trip consisted of 12 hour days in hot weather on a construction site overseeing a project. Surprisingly I felt no symptoms. I figured if anything my work trip would have triggered/intensified any symptoms if I was pregnant (exhaustion? cramping? nothing?), so I was not expecting a BFP. The only thing I noticed was my boobs were slightly more sore than normal, but that convinced me of nothing. I brought two tests with me on my trip in hopes I could bring home a wonderful souvenir for my husband, but they were both BFN at 8 dpo and 9 dpo. When I returned home the next day, DH and I went grocery shopping and I picked up a couple more tests. Even though I still didn’t feel any symptoms, I went in the bathroom later than night to test and to my surprise a faint faint line (10 dpo)! After six months of BFNs I could not contain my excitement and ran to the living room to ask my husband if he could see it. He did! Still neither of us were totally convinced because it was so faint. I barely slept that night because I was so anxious to test again. I took two more tests in the morning – both BFPs! Confirmed on a digital a day later at 12 dpo. Since then I have had some very mild cramps. My boobs don’t hurt much when I wake in the mornings, but they get increasingly more sore as the day goes on. Otherwise normal CM, no nausea and no spotting. I usually have some spotting after BDing and I usually spot at 11 dpo up until my period, but zero spotting this month, not after BD or at implantation. My temperature never went triphasic, it has held steady around 98.3. So why was this month THE month? I honestly don’t know, could be a number of things or just plain luck. I have been using OPKs and temping since the beginning and I know we always had perfect timing. DH and I both take a daily vitamin and this was our third month using Pre-Seed. I usually tilt my hips up and stay in bed afterward. Last cycle I drank grapefruit juice everyday, still BFNs, but I did notice that the consistency of my period was different. It seemed…healthier. More red/runny and less thick/brown/dark. Maybe it was the grapefruit juice or maybe it just took time for my body to adjust being off the pill that made my lining improve. I still drank grapefruit juice this month, but not nearly as much or everyday. I did get a Swedish massage the day before my positive OPK. I had been stressing out for several months about my work trips – potentially being gone during ovulation and if I do become pregnant, over exerting myself with long, hot days. Luckily we never missed an O. Mentally I think I was starting to let go a little and give in to the fact that I may not be able to control this. I am so very grateful that this was finally our month. I feel blessed and appreciative every day. I know how hard TTC can be and you ladies are so very strong. May you all get your BFPs!!

BFP with Irregular Cycles

Sooo happy to finally be sharing my BFP! Like many of you, I really never thought this day would come, and I’m still sort of in shock about it all. This month I actually had less “symptoms” than the months that I wasn’t pregnant. We used Pre-Seed this month, which was something I hadn’t tried before. I have irregular cycles, so I’m unsure of my DPO but here are some of the symptoms that really stood out to me: CD 25 – Cramping, my bbs are NOT sore (they usually are from ovulation till my AF) CD 26 – AF like cramps, minimal to no CM CD 27 – AF cramps, peeing more often CD 28 – AF cramps, EWCM in the morning only, CD 29 – AF cramps, took a test BFN CD 30-32 – Strong sensitivity to smells, I could smell my DH’s work shoes as soon as he walked in the door, VERY moody and weepy, gas CD 33 – Flu like symptoms, frequent urination, lots of BM’s a day like 5 or 6, sore throat, craving pumpkin cookies, gas CD 34 – Flu and cold-like symptoms, very tired, gas CD 35 – Nothing really, head cold, woke up in the AM craving spaghetti (I hate spaghetti), gas CD 36 – Still no sore bbs and no AF, dull AF cramps, POAS around noon with FRER BFP! Right away, very dark line. I was and still am in shock. Also took a CB Digital the next day that came up “Pregnant”... It’s real! Right now I’m about 5 weeks, I’m starting to get headaches often and hungry ALL THE TIME. The only other thing that’s changed is I am constantly peeing and ALWAYS tired! But that’s ok, I am soooo happy and hoping for a healthy sticky bean.

BFP While Breastfeeding!

I am still breastfeeding my 11 month old 4-5 times a day, and this was my first ovulatory PP cycle. We were actively trying, and I was charting my BBT and CF. We used OPKs and sperm-friendly lubricant as well. I was not expecting a BFP so quickly, but needless to say I am thrilled and feel very blessed. Praying that this is a sticky baby! Since we were actively trying, I kept track of my symptoms after ovulation. They were: O day(CD 30!)- positive Wondfo OPK around 5:30 p.m., confirmed with positive Clearblue 2 hours later. The week leading up to O I drank a cup of red raspberry leaf tea in the a.m. and decaf green tea in the p.m. every day. I believed this helped increase my fertile cervical fluid. Also used sperm-friendly lubrication, just in case. Husband was sick but soldiered through our late night BD. Stayed on back with elevated hips for 15-ish minutes after DTD. For some reason I felt very shaky after BD, so this helped! Have resumed taking prenatal vitamins by this point. 1 DPO- Woke up very late last night (or very early this morning) with crazy sharp pains in my lower left pelvic region. If this is ovulation pain, never felt it before! Thought it was bad wind. Today, I’ve had some crampiness and dizziness. Had another positive OPK around 3:30, which surprised me since my BBT rose so drastically this morning, but I’ve heard that LH can take a little bit to metabolize out of system, so I may have caught the tail end. Cervical fluid was dry, so we used sperm-friendly lube during our “for a good measure” BD tonight. 2 DPO- Extremely scant light pink tint to creamy CF around 4:30. Negative OPK. Cramps, headache, irritability and skin break out. Had a small instance of erratic heartbeat and shaky when hungry. 3 DPO- Bad cramps/upset stomach when I went to bed last night, then again after I got up with LO at 4 and tried to go back to sleep. Slight upset stomach/wind today, with addition of cramps this afternoon. Strange twinges in vaginal area. Some nausea, creamy CF. 4 DPO- Pink creamy CF on TP after going to the bathroom, a few small twinges near left side of uterus, some dull cramps. Itchy dry throat with some coughing. Frequent urination and another weird erratic heartbeat. 5 DPO- Dry CF. Increased thirst and frequent urination, with on and off pelvic twinges and dull cramps. Itchy throat and cough, stuffy nose. Scant brown tinge on TP after wiping, wet feeling this evening but hardly any noticeable CF. Fatigue this afternoon, needed to rest my eyes after lunch. Bloated and some heartburn after eating. Forehead is starting to break out. Irritable. 6 DPO- Dip in BBT today. Dull cramps and backache upon waking and in the morning. Creamy CF after urinating around 12:30 p.m. Bathroom was very dim but I THINK I saw a tiny dot of blood in it. Increased thirst, bloated and windy this evening. Super tired! 7 DPO- I woke up way earlier than usual today, so my BBT isn’t as high as I think it could be, but it still rose a bit. Scant creamy CF in evening. Still having menstrual-like cramps/backache intermittently throughout the day. Fatigue, irritability, and skin break out. 8 DPO- More skin break out, some cramps today but not as many as past week. I do have shortness of breath if I do anything fairly physical. Very scant creamy CF, tinged light brown this evening. Felt like I was coming down with something around dinner time. Still windy. 9 DPO- More scant creamy CF. I have to use the bathroom almost immediately after finishing a drink. Very light occasional cramps that I would ignore any other time, but still unusual compared to my pre-pregnancy cycles. I’m dizzy when hungry, easily fatigued, and I have a slight headache and heartburn this evening. Cramp in my right calf before going to sleep. Couldn’t resist POAS addiction… negative. Not surprised, but disappointed. 10 DPO- Same dull cramps, still have the increased thirst and frequent urination. Wet feeling down there and lots of creamy CF that is brownish/pink tinged. Dizziness upon standing, and an embarrassingly clichéd craving for chocolate past couple days. Bloated and windy. I had a strange sharp twinge run from the nipple to underneath right breast this evening, but up until now my BBs have not had any noticeable symptoms; wondering if breastfeeding affects this? (First pregnancy my right nipple was erect and “buzzy” from 7 DPO (implantation until positive HPT) 11 DPO- same cramps, but CF is gone. Some foods starting to smell/taste a little ‘off’. Mood swings, bloating. I go back and forth on whether or not I feel pregnant, or like this is the longest PMS ever. Took a cheap blue dye test today… could see the faintest smidge of a shadow, but chalk it up to unreliable blue dye and evap.

BFP - 13 DPO!

I have been reading the BFP stories on this site for the last 2 months. My husband and I have been TTC for 7 months. This month we used PreSeed for the first time, I laid down with hips up for about 30 mins afterwards, we did the SMEP, and I used ClearBlue Ovulation kit. We also prayed that God would bless us with a baby! I did not ovulated until CD25 which is really late into my cycle. I usually have 30-34 day cycles. This morning, at 13 DPO, I got my BFP! We feel so blessed! I am going to list the few symptoms that I had up until my BFP... but there were very few! 1-4 DPO: I didn't notice anything out of the normal for me, I had a few cramps but I always get those around ovulation time. 5-6 DPO: My eyes were watering and itching so badly, I felt like I was getting a cold because I had stuffy nose and scratchy throat. 7-10 DPO: A few more cramps, my vagina felt like I was getting a yeast infection (itchy but no discharge besides the normal) 11-12 DPO: Tired and cramps... I thought for sure my period was about to start. 13 DPO: Slept until 10:45 ... I NEVER do that!!! Woke up and POAS to see a BFP!!!! I pray that those of you who are TTC will get to soon experience the joy we experienced this morning! God Bless! Baby dust to all!
