BFP after AF (Heavy bleeding and severe cramps) *******UPDATE*****

******WE'RE HAVING TWINS!!!!!!!!*********

Measuring 6w 5d we saw the 2 lil beans (It was actually 2 holes in my uterus lol). Sonogrammer said the cramping and bleeding made sense as some mothers who
carry twins experience this early on! Back for another scan in 2 weeks (this i so exciting).

we're absolutely shocked (but i had a sneaky feeling i was carrying 2 cus my symptoms made no sense lol)

Just to let u know my fatigue is the same, my hair has stopped falling out (feels lush and thick), my boobs have quadrupled, i have to pee every 1 hour and eat every 2 hours and i look HUGE! Also have waves nausea.

Thanks everyone for reading and following. I pray you all get that much wanted BFP :-)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just want to thank this forum, as I'm a regular stalker and symptom spotter hehe.

This is for all the GES's (Google Every Symptom-ers) and those who've had a bleed and thought it was their period. Bleeding accompanied with severe cramps that had me running to A&E thinking I was dying. When I went, the doctors couldn't find the cause and sent me home. Next day I had a scan and nothing was found in my uterus, just blood clots. This was the day my AF was due which was 16th June.

FINALLY after 2 weeks of insanity (i convinced myself that either I had fibroids, tumors or an unknown illness but i deffo wasnt preggo) I got my BFP on FRER. FAINT line but still pretty much there!

Ive had 3 miscarriages and 1 successful pregnancy. The weird thing is im pregnant around the same time, I was 3 years ago!

So I tracked ovulation according to Ovia Fertility and Period Tracker. But Ovia Fertility was wrong based on CM so according to Period Tracker I ovulated on 2nd June. Here goes ladies.

I DTD on 27, 28, 30, 4 & 5th June. Honestly guys I didn't think i was in for a chance Cus we didn't DTD on ovulation day.

SYMPTOMS I DIDN'T HAVE: metallic taste, sore/sensitive nipples, stuffy nose, migraines, severe boob ache, frequent urination, vomiting.

1DPO: happy, tight muscles and joint pain. WATERY CM.

2DPO: +sex drive, cramps, bloated stomach, heavy feeling in uterus, nausea, gassy, backache, throat feels swollen, felt really tired, cramps, EWCM.

3DPO: +sex drive, frequent urination, backache, pelvic pain and cramps, bloating (cant suck belly in), extremely tired (had 2 naps, never do that), boobs feel really full (normally feel like this a day before AF), SCHOOL GLUE CREAMY CM.

4DPO: happy, +sex drive, cramps, gassy, backaches, extremely tired (eyes feel heavy), LOTS OF CREAMY WHITE CM.

5DPO: still tired!

6DPO: bloated (belly feels hard), gassy (gas masks needed), boobs feel humongous, stomach feels really heavy, lots of cramps, LUKEHORRA, STRINGY, YELLOW/BROWN CM (in abundance, I literally wet myself with CM).

7DPO: woke up feeling like I peed myself there was WATERY CM, vagina is itchy and swollen inside, CM LOOKS YELLOW/GREEN, think Im getting an infection. AF cramps, feeling really tired, acid reflux.

8DPO: AF cramps, moody, SCHOOL GLUE CREAMY YELLOWISH CM.

9DPO: AF cramps which is normal, boobs don't hurt as much which is unusual normally boobs feel heavy, SCHOOL GLUE CM.

10DPO: happy, calm (unusual normally PMS takes over around this time Im in a stinking mood), hot flashes, +sex drive, gassy, bloated (cant suck belly in&it's hard), sharp pain in uterus, cramps like AF, backaches, fatigue (tired after day out), back aches, slight nausea, face feels hot, flutters in stomach twinges and pinches, SCHOOL GLUE CM (smells FISHY like AF TMI SORRY). I FEEL PREGNANT, I just know i am!

11DPO: happy, calm (no PMS which i usually get) burning like cramps in hips and uterus, boobs hurt near armpits & feel full & heavy (normally they hurt a lot more), feel exhausted, kicks & flutters in stomach (feels like world war 3 in there), CREAMY THICK YELLOW CM.

12DPO: woke up and thought i peed myself. Bed had a wet patch ran to bathroom and found CLOUDY CM, dizzy, bloated, backaches, extreme fatigue (unusual), so hungry had 6 meals! My urine is fluorescent and STINKS.

13DPO: lots of CREAMY CM outside vagina (normally I have to stick finger in), Vaginal canal feels weird, feels tighter. I don't ever get this much CM before period. Getting happy. Could it be? Extremely hungry and tired, cant stop eating and sleeping.

Two week wait - so hard!

Hi
Just want to write this as voyering these boards helped me SO MUCH during my two week wait. All of us are so brave. having to undergo IVF is the hardest thing for a woman to go through, it goes against everything us women were made for. I struggled so much during the 2WW that I felt really negative at the end of it. I just wanted to tell you all a few symptoms that I read into and shouldnt have. 1st week: sore boobs and going to the toilet loads 2nd week: squeezing my boobs every day for hope of some tenderness - none. Period pains almost every day I was pretty sure it hadnt worked. I get different period pains like dragging but some sharp pains ad weirdly a pain in my tummy button which always means a period. had all these. I even said to my husband sadly "whats the point in doing a test," but something came over me I thought "Ive been through all this I have to know" so i did the test on the 2nd wee of the day (i was so desperate for the loo when I first got up I forgot?!) and it was a BIG FAT POSITIVE!!!!!! We just saw the heart beat 2 days ago and now feeling nice and nauseas.
Please ladies dont read into any of the signs as one forum said "the cruel thing is early pregnancy symptoms reflect period symptoms." I love the person who wrote " have FAITH have FAITH have FAITH...." when she was writing about her positve result after all the cramps and no symtoms/symptoms there one day gone the next.If this baby is a girl her middle name will be Faith. FYI I have had these cramps pretty much the whole time. Lots of us IVF pople also have scaring and dont forget the effects of stimulating your ovaries to the point of no return and then stopping the hormones. We've been through so much, let's give ourselves a break. I believe in positivity and do loads of hypno. BELIEVE you will have a baby, even go out and buy it something to confirm your belief it will happen. the sub concious mind knows so much more than you think. what's the worst that could happen? you were too positive? I don't think so, it would always be worse to think I wasn't positive enough. All the best to you brave lot.

TWINS!!!!!!!

Cycles range from 26-28 days average lutel is 12 days. My chart was triphasic this month! I had hardly any symptoms this month. The first thing that tipped me off was that I usually cramp from O to AF and I had no cramping what so ever. DH was telling me I was pregnant since we BD'd. Not sure how he knew. This is baby #2 for me, I have an 11 yr old boy. 1st baby for my DH. Only BD'd one day this month! So below is how this month went. Oh I'm 33 DH 36

Temps- Coverline is usually 97.9
O'd on 1/5 97.9 - Positive OPK BD- Clearblue easy had a Smiley face!
1/6- 1DPO 98.1
1/7- 2 DPO 98.5
1/8- 3 DPO 98.3
1/9- 4 DPO 98.4
1/10- 5 DPO 98.3
1/11- 6 DPO 98.3

1/13- 8 DPO 98.0
1/14- 9 DPO 98.1

1/17- 12 dpo 98.4 Took a test (FRER) in the middle of the night and went back to bed. Woke up at 8 and I have a faint line!!!!!
1/18- 13 dpo 98.6 darker bfp with fmu (FRER)! I think I'm pregnant!
1/19- 14 dpo- I didn't test or take temp this day. Called and made my ob appointment 2/12/15!!! Itchy all over.
1/20-15 dpo- took my last FRER with fmu and it is bright pink! My FF app told me that I could stop tracking my fertility now lol

So far nausea on and off, boobs aren't sore. My stomach is really upset tmi alert- pooping like crazy. I have been a little emotional here and there. As long as I don't get hungry I am ok. I have turned into a morning person but by 3 I am done.

UPDATE
I had absolutely no vomitting until i hit 5 weeks. Then it was full force. Super tired now and constipated. NO fun.
6 weeks and 1 day- had some spotting, freaked out went to the ER. Come to find out everything is fine. 2 heartbeats 2 babies!!
Twins due 10/1/2015
NO fertility drugs! Twins do not run in either family. I asked for one and God gave me 2! Feeling beyond Blessed

positive at 7dpo?

This is my 1st time posting to a forum, I'm not very good with the lingo, sorry in advance I took a random pregnancy test today and it was positive, so I took another one positive again. I was shocked as we weren't really trying , we were planning to though. I have been charting for the hell of it . so I went back to my chart and its saying I ovulated on the 3rd so that would make me 7dpo the only time I had Did the deed was the 1st. Is this right? Could I have already been pregnant from the month before or something?

Dark bfp 9 dpo!! Ttc 2 years!

So quick background 2+yrs ttc w 2mc, 1cp, pcos and irregular cycles.

BFp!!!! (With hypothyroid)

I can't believe I can finally post here. After our fourth round ttc I got my bfp :) I'll give you my details and then if you'd like, you can read my story :) If you've been waiting a long time to get pregnant I'd encourage you to stick it out through the long post because I think it might help you :)

So here it is, and heads up, it's pregnancy symptoms so I'm not going to apologize or say TMI. You wouldn't be here if you didn't want to know :) PS I started on .5g of Synthroid on day 2 of this cycle. These are my notes:

1dpo: nothing really, just some leftover ovulatory cramps

2dpo: cramps, little bit of nausea-maybe from being hungry, still some twinges in ovaries, weird itchy twinge a few times on right lower abdomen, emotional in afternoon, found out a friend of mine is already pregnant again

3dpo: feel wet down there but nothing really in my underwear, just some creamy cm when I wipe, still cramping a bit, don't really feel pregnant, sad because my temp went down again

4dpo: constipation (I don't usually have this issue but it happened the first time we ttc so I didn't read too much into it), cramping in abdomen, some lower back pain, and pain in hips like when AF is here

5dpo: increased sex drive, cramping low down in middle of pelvis, AF-like cramps after 5pm, back, hips, and legs hurt

6dpo: nothing much, constipation, lots of creamy cm

7dpo: constipation, a few cramps today, still not sure if constipation or my uterus/ovaries

8dpo: gassy, constipation, slightly tender breasts (on inner part near the nipple)

9dpo: gassy, constipation, tender breasts, really beginning to think what I thought was cramps has been constipation cramps the whole time :( wondering if it's the synthroid causing constipation

10dpo: increased appetite, increased sex drive, gassy, bloated, constipated, breasts still tender starting to be tender on outer sides and around nipple, felt really wet down there today, sad cause when I feel increased sex drive that usually means my periods coming :(

11dpo: increased appetite, gassy, constipated (what is wrong with me??), fatigue (really tired, keep having to take naps in the afternoon lately), breasts still tender, itchy nipples, low sex drive...unusual, smelling EVERYTHING

12dpo: increased appetite, gassy, bloated, constipated (still??), fatigue, breasts tender, cramps-prob AF about to come :(

13dpo: increased appetite, gassy, constipated (seriously?), drank lemon juice and water on an empty stomach and went to the bathroom this morning, by lunch felt constipated again :( after my husband and I went on a date we were going to watch a movie and I got all ridiculous about not feeling pretty or wearing the right outfit for our date, was sure I must be about to start my period with the moodiness, have achy teeth, breasts very sore, fatigue, didn't feel like having sex...unusual this close to AF possibly coming, which I was sure she was :(

14dpo: woke up at 5:45am like usual to take my temp, had told myself I would only do a test if my temp was still up (I am not a POAS addict, I hate seeing the negative line and would rather just know by my temp going down and AF showing up), my temp was 98.34(!), I talked myself out of getting up for about 20 min, then took a test. BFP!!!!!!!! Holy moly me oh my, I'm pregnant!!!!! Definite line!!! Test line darker than control line!!! Teeth ache, very hungry!! Couldn't sleep anymore after I told my husband (he was excited for being in a groggy sleepy state :)) so I got up. A lot of watery/creamy cm in underwear and down there. Can't believe I'm pregnant!! Cramps and twinges every now and then.

Okay so here's my story:

BFP first IVF

DH and I had been trying to conceive for 3+ years. I have endo, slight pcos, and a blocked tube. We tried three rounds of clomid, didn't work. I've had two lapraoscopies, and did 6 months of lupron depot shot. Hated the shot but it worked wonders on pain from endo. Anyways, fertility doc desided to go straight to IVF since I've never been pg or known if I was pg. DH is completely normal, even above average. So we did ivf at fertility doctor suggestion. We did a 5 day transfer. I had absolutely no symptoms! !!! Just tired, but i think that was more from healing from 30 egg retrival.

1-3dp5dt - nothing just tired. Tested 3dpt BFN
4dp5dt - starting to get super exhausted going to bed at 9pm. Waking up at 730.
5dp5dt - I got a strong BFP!!! Just tired exhausted.
Kept testing because I love seeing my BFP
Found out 28dpt that I'm pg with twins! Super excited! !!

FET success after failed fresh IVF

Hello fellow ttcers, I want to share my story to give hope to any of you undergoing treatment now.
Me and DH:36
Started ttc 4 yrs ago.
Problems: male factor (low morphology) and uterine polyps removed twice.
First IVF 1 year ago: 18 eggs retrieved, 16 mature and icsi-ed, 11 fertilized, 6 5-day blasts. Transferred 1 blast but bfn:(
Waited for 7 months before FET, as I needed time to recover from the craziness of infertility treatments.
November 2013 started estrogen and then progesterone, and we transferred two blasts on the 6th of December.
The only unique symptom I had for 3 days a week after the transfer was bitter taste in my mouth, all day long, and after eating!
Then on 9dp5dt I had severe cramping and exactly like af was coming. Went to the bathroom to find pads etc, and poased without even thinking it. The strongest positive came up. Beta on 12dp5dt was 1806. Needless to say I am now 18 wks pregnant with twins:)
I hope my story helps someone make it through a tough time:)
Babydust to all of you!

After over 6 years of ttc!

My husband and I were high school sweethearts and knew from day 1 we wanted a family together. After over 6 years of ttc, 5 miscarriages, numerous doctors appointments and testing, different medications, and surgery, Im 19 weeks 4 days pregnant with 3 girls. The pregnancy started out as quadruplets but we lost 1 around 9 weeks. Thankfully our 3 girls are growing right on track and we couldnt be happier! Never give up on your dreams =)
