BFP after 8 months TTC with endometriosis and PCOS

So after 8 months of trying I finally got my bfp.

The main thing I noticed was there were not many symptoms. In fact I had less symptoms than the 'symptoms ' I had when I wasn't pregnant in the past and that drew my attention.

- Normally have tender breasts week leading up to period and didn't have this
- Felt cramping on day of implantation arpund 7dpo. Felt like af was coming for sure. That night was sooo tired I kept falling asleep on the couch. Next day cramps gone.
- major aversion to meat. Couldn't touch it

Nothing else really except nausea. This wasn't until after implantation and once I already knew. God told me to take a test so I did!

This month what I did differently was taking evening primrose up to ovulation and stopped taking after ovulation as it can cause uterus cramping.

Bfp at 10 dpo.

Surprise BFP with PCOS

So I always said that I would post my story on here if and when we ever got a BFP. So here I am shocked that I am getting to post it.

I have PCOS and Endo. My husband and I have been trying for just over 2 years to conceive. We did an IUI back in early August and got negative test after negative test after our dreaded 2WW. I was so upset and it really had taken a toll on my body (IUI caused pretty bad pain for me and I was on bed rest for a few days) so we decided to take a few months off from TTCing. After all my husband was switching jobs and we are currently house hunting so it seemed like a good time to relax and just enjoy each other for a while. During this break we really did just that, enjoy each other. We went on a weekend getaway to the mountains, went to a concert, had many date nights and enjoyed a few beers!! For the first time in a long time I was not completely focused on getting pregant.

Well a couple weeks back I started cramping pretty bad and it was on and off for about two weeks. My boobs also felt like they were going to fall off my body they hurt so bad. So on Monday June 13, I realized that I hadn't had a period since before my IUI (pretty normal for me when I am not on fertility drugs) so I called my docotor and asked them to call me in a prescription to jump start my period. I wanted to make sure I was getting my body healthy so we could start trying again in January or February. My doctor told me to make sure I take a pregnancy test before I started the medicine and other then that I was good to go. So on Tuesday, June 14, right before I went to go pick up my medicine I took a cheap test just so I could rule it out. And wouldn't you know, a VERY positive pregnancy test before the control line even had time to show up. It was our very first BFP.

We had our first ultrasound yesterday and we are currently 5w6d pregnant with our first and feeling so blessed that we actually got to experience that shock of a lifetime. Please say prayers for a healthy 9 months as I am still high risk!! Part of me still can't believe that when everyone would say "just relax it will happen" that they were right...

Finally Pregnant after 3 years of TTC with PCOS

I am so excited to announce our pregnancy! My husband and I are so thrilled to finally be pregnant! We have been trying to conceive for 3 years now and after everything that we have been through it happened naturally!!! We had decided to take a much needed break from TTC and enjoy the summer. I threw away everything TTC related and stopped tracking completely! I mean everything! (Basal thermometer, ovulation tests, pregnancy tests, charts, preeseed, books, and deleted all the apps from my phone!) No more worrying tracking and checking symptoms for me, I was done with the whole thing and I had had enough!!!!

We found out that I had PCOS after trying on our own for a year with no success. I was then put on Metformin and told I needed to lose 15 pounds to get pregnant. Well I lost 30 pounds after 6 months and still nothing. I had extremely irregular periods which can be heart breaking constantly thinking you are pregnant only to be let down by a million negative pregnancy tests!! We decided to try fertility drugs and went to a specialist and I got put on Clomid for 4-6 months. After 4 months the pills stopped making me ovulate and they switched me to Femera for the last 2 months. These pills were no piece of cake either!!! I have never been so emotionally overwhelmed in my whole life and my poor husband is such a trooper for hanging in there and getting me through all of this! After 6 months of torturous pills and horrible symptoms.....NOTHING!

After that my doctor suggested that I get my tubes checked to see if there was blockage, but after that test there was nothing else he could do for me except recommend me to a fertility clinic for IVF. Well the test was going to be really expensive and just to make the consultation with the fertility clinic was going to be $500 so that is when we decided to take the money we were going to spend on the test and the consult and go and have a fun summer!!!

After a fun filled summer I am pleased to report that I am 6 weeks and 5 days pregnant!!! As for symptoms I have them all!! lol Since I wasn't tracking anything though my early symptoms aren't as detailed because I just figured that my period was about to come. Actually since taking the fertility drugs my periods had become extremely regular! The only reason why I even took a pregnancy test was because I really wanted to have a margarita and I noticed that my period was a few days late and I just wanted to clear my conscience. :) So I took the text very casually thinking that my irregular periods had returned and after I took the test I could have my margarita. Well as soon as I peed on that stick it instantly turned blue and I couldn't believe it! I started yelling "OH MY GOD!" and jumping up and down! I could not wait for my husband to get home so I could share the joyous news with him!

Now that I am thinking back I remember being really tired and having sore breasts even before I found out I was pregnant.
I found out at week 4 and since then I have had these symptoms:

-Extremely sore breasts to the point that I have to walk slower in the halls at work because it hurts if they bounce at all!! And I now have to wear sports bras because I have already out grown my current ones and normal bras just plain hurt!!
-Loss of appetite big time! I have to force myself to eat because nothing sounds good ever!
-So so very tired! I have been taking naps in the middle of the day, yawning all day long and falling asleep at like 9:30 at night which is really rare for me!
-Emotions are running high these days I will cry at the drop of a pin!
-Mild cramping, feels like pulling and stretching with dull pain.
-Slight nausea nothing major so far thank god!
-Lower back pain, my ligaments are moving and it hurts if I am on my feet for too long which is really unfortunate because I am a CNA and I am on my feet and hustling all day long for 12 hour shifts!

So far that is it! I am so very happy and luck to be pregnant and it is such a blessing that we didn't have to pursue further treatments that would have put us into debt! When I was actively trying to get pregnant every month I would patrol this site reading and searching for hope and people like me! This website was a blessing for my sanity and I am so happy to be able to share my story with all of you! Baby dust to everyone and please pray that I have a sticky baby! God Bless!

BFP at 15DPO!

Hello everyone!

I am so excited that I finally get to post in this forum!! DH and I have been ttc since March 2013. I got a BFP with FRER over the weekend at 15DPO. I'm still a bit in shock! This was my 2nd cycle on FertiliTea and 3rd on FertilAid (both of us). The FertilAid helped, but I think the biggest difference came when I started the FertiliTea. Both cycles that I took it, I O'd about 10 days earlier than I usually do and my temps weren't as crazy and all over the place like they used to be. I am 38 and have PCOS and was starting to think this was never going to happen for us.

So here are my symptoms since O day...
1-2DPO: Headache, sore bbs (typical for me during TWW)
3-7DPO: headaches, sore bbs, some bloating & gas, occasional backaches & cramps (also typical for my TWW)
8-11DPO: sinus issues, queasy stomach, discharge, sore bbs, irritable, gassy, fatigue, eczema, chapped lips, constipation
12DPO: emotional, sinus issues, fatigue, chapped lips, sore bbs, BFN with FMU (walmart cheapie)
13DPO: hot flashes, sinus issues, queasy, fatigue, heart palpitations, sore bbs
14DPO: skin breakout, queasy, hot flashes, chapped lips, sore bbs
15DPO: brown areolas, sore bbs, super sensitive scalp, sensitivity to smell, hot flashes, chapped lips, queasy, fatigue, BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!

BFP at 15DPO

Hi Ladies,

Im no newbie to this site. I have been on this site religiously for over a year now. I had all but given up hope on myself and the idea of starting a family. Well yesterday at 15DPO af was supposed to show and well she didnt. I dont think I had very many early symptoms at all. Honestly I didnt have hardly anything that would have convinced me I was pregnant. People always say it and I would read their stories and think they had to have known something... but nope I didnt have anything. here are my "symptoms" that I can think of/remember:

1-5dpo - exceptionally creamy cm (I always get this though
5-14dpo - really horribly bad gas.... TMI but I didnt even want to stay in the room with myself.
14dpo - I did have mild back pain but I just thought it was the way I slept
15dpo - BFP on FRER, internet cheapy and Pregnant 2-3 on digi test.

I am so happy but also so nervous and scared that something may happen. I am going to pray that this little bean sticks around.

BFP thanks to Vitex, Maca Root & Raspberry Leaf Tea!

I cannot believe I am writing my very own story on twoweekwait after months of lurking. A little about myself, my hubby and I are 31 and we have been TTC since January 2014. My periods have always been irregular as I have PCOS. I only had my period in February, July and August of this year. In July, I induce my period with progesterone & provera.

Frustrated as I saw another late period on the horizon, I researched Vitex and Maca Root, which were both described as a "baby in a bottle"! In August, I induced my period with Vitex and Maca Root in just one week! I continued to take 1200 mg of each daily throughout my cycle. I also began drinking Organic Raspberry Leaf tea daily. After my cycle passed day 40 and I continued to get BFNs, I became discouraged and braced for my period to arrive any day now.

I had started to feel cramping in my lower left abdomen for the past few days and just chalked it up to constipation. I began to feel cramping in the lower right abdomen a couple of days later. I was certain something else had to be wrong with me, when it dawned on me that these pains could possibly be from an actual pregnancy! On CD44, I ran to my POS stash and two lines appeared instantly! BFP!!!!!

My advice is not to get discouraged! I highly recommend Vitex, Maca Root & Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea. They truly are a God send! You just need to be patient and let them work their magic!

Good luck and baby dust to all of you!

9 months ttc #3! Au natural

My first daughter was conceived after I had been told I'd never be able to have children on my own due to hormonal imbalance that caused amenorrhea. After about 18 months of ntnp i found out I was pregnant when I was already about 3 months along (hadn't had a period in over a year). Beyond blessed! I had an IUD placed afterwards just in case. When it was time to try for #2, I had the IUD removed. I didn't get af or 2 months so my obgyn induced me with provera and gave me clomid 50mg 5-7. After 2 non successful months I decided to "help" out the clomid with a boost of soy ISO. Well it did the trick but I also got ohhs from it and was on bed rest for 2 weeks! Oops!! When #2 was 9 months old I got af. Then had a 52 then 31,then 34 day cycles. Went back to my obgyn when #2 turned one in hopes to get clomid but she wanted to wait and see for three more months. Had a 21 day progesterone draw, results were a 7, which showed ovulation but not high enough to sustain a pregnancy. Again she said let's see what happens in the next 3-6 months before we move on to femara. Needless to say I was devistated:( it had already been 6 months of crazy internet obsession!! Ugh.... So I started taking the following; prenatal, extra folic acid, magnesium, Q-10, vitamin C, fish oil, zinc, B complex and vitex tincture 1000mg every morning. First cycle was 35 days bfn. Second cycle I dropped the b complex and upped the vitex to 1500mg x2 morning and night.... I use opks, digital smiley (some months I'd get 2 positives or none at all, super frustrating) check cm and cp, this month started charting bbt.... And I got my BFP on cycle day 37, 14 dpo!!!!

FF put my o date the day before my positive opk??? Hmmm made husband come home from work sat night, cd 21 /22 to dtd! Good thing I did:)O'd cd 23! Dtd cd 21-22-24.

1-6dpo same as usual
7dpo bbt went up (beginning of triphasic chart). Got in hot tub with DD and got overheated quickly had to get out after 5 mins
8-9dpo nothing unusual- temps definitely high triphasic chart confirmed
10-13 dpo nipples sore.. Hmmmm got this when pregnant with #2... And then heartburn!?!? definite thinking I'm pregnant. Temps still up. Promised hubby that I'd wait to poas till he got home from work- works out of town fri-sun.
14-dpo temp higher than ever!!! Poas BFP!!! Soo soo happy. Came up so quick too!!

I really believe it was the vitex!! Oh I forgot to mention I am borderline skinny pcos. Im about to turn 32 DH 35!!

Good luck to all of you ladies stalking the BFP stories,that was me since February this year. God bless you all!!

Still In Shock! Naturally Preg w/ PCOS

I got 4 positive pregnancy tests yesterday and 2 more today. It's still sinking in!

I have sat up so many nights crying, hoping, and praying while reading all the BFP stories on here, wondering if I'd ever get to post my own. After exactly 2 long years of trying, here we are naturally pregnant. I did 3 rounds of Clomid with no success and had decided to begin the IVF process on my next cycle, never came!

Things I did: I began lifting weights the past few months and trying to eat a little cleaner in general. Nothing crazy but just going to the gym 4 days a week and trying to feel tighter. I noticed my cycles became more regular by doing this and made me feel sexier while BD (which helped me want to do it more). After sex, we inserted a moon cup so I could get up and move around without everything leaking out. I'm not sure this made a difference as we had done this many cycles before. Also, I started taking prenatal vitamins a couple of months ago so I'd like to think this helped.

Symptoms: First off, please no nothing was obvious, so don't expect a whirlwind of symptoms because you may not get any. I didn't even recognize my symptoms as signs of pregnancy until after my test and thinking back. At the time (1-7 days PO) I felt normal. When I saw that second line pop up on my test it was sheer shock because I thought I'd feel different.

1-10 DPO: little fluttery feelings in my chest like I have high blood pressure or something. Insomnia really bad, up all night with my mind racing. Occasional few sharp pains in uterus and ovary areas. Nothing too abnormal for me.

10 DPO-current: feeling like period is going to start- cramping feels the same as before period, boobs feel the same (I don't feel it in my nipples but my boobs are tender all over and are BIG). I'm slowly starting to feel tiny almost non existent spells of nausea. I stood up yesterday and my vision went blurry for a few seconds. Feeling more and more tired.

Good luck to all! It's hard to see past your trials when your right in the middle of them, but it's so worth the wait. Now, those two years trying don't seem so long in the big scheme of things. God knows what timing is best.
