BFP with lower back aches

Here is what I experienced with this BFP.

1 dpo - mild cramping
3 dpo - started daily progesterone to treat a short luteal phase,
4-9 dpo - no symptoms
10 dpo - mild cramping and had a bubbly, fluttery feeling in lower abdomen, almost like when baby #1 started moving around week 16
11 dpo - lower back ache and diarrhea, thought it was from something I ate; BFN 13 dpo -
12 dpo - lower back ache and diarrhea, started to think food poisoning was not the cause; took a test and saw a FAINT line
13 dpo - another faint line with FMU, a negative with digital test #1 (ept); positive digital in afternoon (Walgreens); spotting in am with pink streaks that turned to brown in the afternoon.
14 dpo - slightly gassy

This BFP is different than #1. The first time around, I had sore boobs and a lot more cramping an no spotting. Just goes to show that each pregnancy can be very different.

DH and I only bd'd every other day around ovulation but not on O day because I was out of town. Also, my O was way late, by a week, which made me think that this cycle was going to end wacky. I was surprised to see the positive tests and am still a little in disbelief.

Baby dust and sticky beans to all!!!

BFP with Late O

I've always had long, irregular cycles. I started charting and found that I was ovulating, but it was really random as to when it would happen. My cycles were anywhere from 35 to 90 days, usually around 40-50 days.

We missed ovulation on my first couple of cycles (one cycle was 60 days and one was 42 days) and then I started using OPKs. I went through a ton - I used about 25 sticks. Around CD 30 they started getting darker and darker, and I O'd on CD 35. We were able to time it perfectly in the week leading up to O. Nine days after ovulation, I couldn't wait any longer and I POAS. The line was so faint I wasn't sure if I was imagining it or not. I wasn't - that nearly invisible line on a stick is now an 8-month-old baby girl. :)

BFP after Neg HPTs

I started reading the website after noticing small spotting (brownish) during my first cycle off BCP (was on it for 10 years). I was sure this was implantation bleeding, but AF arrived very late on day 42! (April 1st). So after that here comes another 45 days and no AF. 2x HPT (different brands) = BFN.
I started worrying that DH and I were going to have problems TTC with these crazy long cycles! Well, today (day 56, no AF) I went to my doctor and he gave me the news = BFP!!!!! Apparently I am 8 weeks - so it just goes to show you that HPT's can be wrong! What I did? Just tried to relax, lots of fun LO and healthy eating!


BFP with Late Ovulation, Spotting

BFP at what I am pretty sure was 11dpo

Delayed O (irregular since IUD out)


* Heartburn
* brown, light, almost kinda flaky implant. spotting
* increased cm

And here was my biggest clue: we bd'd the night before last and it hurt and it never hurts! I spotted pink afterwards, and my cervix was sore all the next day, I could FEEL it. I heard that is common when pg your cervix fills with blood and becomes sensitive. So I took another test and !!!!!!!!

Random: a few nights ago my 17-mo old dd pointed to me and said, "baby" which is weird because she calls me "mommy" of course...dh and I looked at eachother odd, but brushed it off.
