BFP after late ovulation and Tubal Reversal

I can't believe it!  I got a "PREGNANT" on my Clear Blue!  This is my 3rd month TTC after Tubal Reversal and I have been on this site a lot!  I really love reading everyones posts! I tried the OPKs with two lines for my first 2 months TTC.  Never got a positive. EVER! Started to worry.  Was peeing on sticks all the time! lol  Got excited on Oct 24 when I started very slight spotting, 5 days before AF was due.  Oct 25 started full flow.  Made my cycle only 24 days when I am very near 28 days every month.  So started to pee on sticks that had "O" or "smile face" on Nov. CD 8.  Kept going and going and felt "ovulation pain" at 9pm on CD 17.  On a whim, I OPK tested and it was a Smiley!   Tested again the next morning, and it was negative, so I would of missed it if not for the ovulation pain! Was confused on when to test for pregnancy, as I had the short cycle in Oct. and I ovulated on CD 19 according to Fertility Friend (First month BBTcharting as well)  So I tested on CD 27 but it was negative, also only 9 DPO.  Tested today ( Nov 23) with same dollar store test and saw very faint second line.  Did another and was the same!  Bought Clear Blue Digital after work and got a PREGNANT!!!  I am so happy!  I wish the same for everyone else TTC!

Finally Pregnant After Mirena Removal (2 Years Ago!)

2 years ago my husband and I made the decision to try for #2, so I had my Mirena IUD removed.  The statistics for Mirena boasted the ability for couples to conceive within a year, so during our first year I stalked this sight month after month to see if it had happened!

After about 9 months of no luck, I purchased an ovulation monitor because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me.  It was eye-opening and disheartening to discover that I ovulated VERY late in my cycle (~CD18) with a 28 day cycle.  I found that my short luteal phase was the culprit, and so about a year ago I decided that I would just embrace the gift of one child and stop obsessing.

Life is ironic like that, isn't it?  My husband and I were on a trip to Chicago a few weeks ago, and I noticed that my bbs were sore a day or so early.  This would have been CD21 or DPO3.  This normally happens 7 days before my period begins.  By CD 31 the soreness was gone, and my period was late.  I tested yesterday and got a confirmed positive.  This was confirmed at my doctor's office today.

I had no other clear symptoms, except for perhaps a runny nose.  This could just be a coincidence.  I also started feeling some pulling below my belly button from cd31-cd34.  The sore bbs that suddenly vanished was the biggest sign for me.

I'm still very shocked and hope it sticks.  It just goes to show you that miracles can happen and that sometimes if we just let go and relax things can work out.

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!

Cheers!

BFP with Late Ovulation, Spotting

BFP at what I am pretty sure was 11dpo

Delayed O (irregular since IUD out)

Symptoms:

* 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.
