BFP After 11 Months TTC

FINALLY!!!! I get to share my BFP story. These have been a God send for me in the last several months and I cannot believe that it is my turn. I had mirena removed 8/20/13 and have TTC ever since. I have had a really rough last few months getting BFN's, so I didnt chart or do OPK's this cycle. All we really did differently was BD'd every other day the entire month. Part of our issue getting PG was that we dont know when I ovulate every month. I guess it worked this time :) I used an internet cheapie and got a very faint second line. I had used all of my good tests in previous months and I decided against buying anymore since all they have been up to this point was a waste of money. Bad decision, because I was looking like a hot mess running through Wal-Mart at 6:30 this morning to buy and CB digi with weeks predictor. That confirmed it for me. I have an appointment today to get bloodwork to confirm. The only symptoms I noticed this cycle were:
-pulling in abdomen
-sore gums
-stomach ache (no nausea)
-tender nipples

Baby dust to all of you and please pray for me that this little bean sticks!!

Surprise BFP!

We've been trying for years and a few years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS. We tried Metformin for a while and got up to 2,000mg-nothing. Couple months ago started clomid and for 2 months, nothing. I didn't ovulate. My doc said she didn't have much hope so she wanted to try one more drug and then send me to a specialist. She put me on Anaztrozle in June and I started a spotty period but they said to count it so I did and day 3-7 I took it. My period was spotty for a week and then super heavy for a week. I decided it was not going to be the month and I didn't even get my 21 day progesterone test. I had also been really focused on loosing weight (down 30lb and 10inches) and I was on a new thyroid pill. On July 24 I woke up and realized my breasts had been sore for a couple weeks. I thought "what the heck" and took a test. It wasn't like most tests I'd taken in the past where I had secret hope. I really didn't think it was it. But I came back into the bathroom and out of the corner of my eye I saw a second line. Long story short, lots of panicking and 8 pregnancy tests later including one at the doctor, I'm pregnant? I still can't believe it and I'm afraid to accept it. My first visit with the OB is Tuesday. Hopefully he'll tell me how far along I am. So far I've just had sore boobs, super tired, and some weird lower tummy feelings (not pain) I hope that's normal! Oh and I've been cold and I'm never cold! Anyway, I'm just hoping for a good report!

TTC for 1 year and a BFP!

Hello everyone! I have always read stories on this board and ALWAYS wondered if it will be ever my turn to share my BFP story. WELL, the day has finally come! Today, I found out that I was 2-3 weeks pregnant.

Let me share abit about myself. I am 32 this year and trying for my first child. I have mild hirsutism (a few dark short hairs on my chin) and am slightly overweight. I am 5 ft 2 and 145 pounds. My cycle ranges anything from 29 days to 39 days.

We have been trying for a year and I did everything possible - from trying to lose weight (which was pretty hard for me), taking my temp in the mornings, bd-ing 4 times the week I thought was my most fertile week, to taking Pregnitude, Inositol powder, etc for a year. I was on Clomid for 3 cycles (unmonitored). I was OPK-ing every month. But nothing worked.

This month, what I did different was this:

- I only took (Pre Natal One Multivitamin from Rainbow Light), and Nordic Natural DHA.
- I did not chart my ovulation. Some people might be shocked by this but I think that it was just getting all too stressful for me. I decided to not pee on a stick and just go by EWCM. I was charting my EWCM for a couple of cycles and noticed that my EWCM happened on the days that was PEAK on my CBFM.
- I only bd-ed twice. The two days that I had the most EWCM.

So assuming, I ovulated on the day I became somewhat dry again, this is how it was my DPO breakdown.

1 DPO - Itchy nipples at night
2 DPO - Itchy nipples at night (I thought that my skin was getting really dry, hence?)
5 DPO - Lots of yellow ewcm that shocked me. My boobs felt heavy.
6 DPO (till today!) - My boobs started to get sore. This is typical for me. Every cycle, my boobs get really huge and sore. I automatically wondered if I was 'out' this cycle as well.
12 DPO - Diarrhoea (really bad!)
13 - 14 DPO - Constipation (and I am thinking what's wrong w me?)
16 DPO - I finally decided to test and immediately, 'Pregnant 2-3 weeks' popped up!

I had to cancel an appointment for an ultrasound, various tests at the hospital because I had seen a specialist and she suspected I had some fertility issues (PCOS/Thyroid, etc). WELL, all I can say is that, God answered my prayers and truly, He makes things beautiful in His time :)

So those of you who have been trying for a year, or overweight or with hirsutism, keep the faith!

BFP with PCOS , all natural

Ok so I have never had normal menstraul cycles. This last cycle I had was 35 days long... So I didn't ovulate until cycle day 26 ... So here goes my dpo!!!

3dpo- twinges, low back pain

4dpo- flutters I know that sounds weird but that's what it felt like, also some more twinges.

6dpo- twinges, constipated, headache

7dpo- sharp pain in right side (which I will now call implantation ) lasted about 15 seconds but definetly felt it

8dpo- got some mild cramps around noon, also the twinges , took a nap during the day

9dpo- tested today?!?! BFN!!! With having abnormal cycles it's hard to not want to. Pretty sure I was out this month. Also had acne which usually happens for me before AF

11dpo- surprisingly acne was gone and my face seemed so clear. More of the twinges but just thought it was just me at this point.

13dpo- pressure , light cramps, stood up at night and felt like a tugging on my right side, laid down that night and felt a little nauseous ..

14dpo- woke up went to work and felt a lil nauseous , no vomiting but expected AF , went on my break at 10:00 and went and bought a FRER , came back and took it, the window started to fill and both lines showed up immediately !!!! BFP!!! Stick baby stick!!!!

By the mercy and grace of God! 2nd Round of Clomid, 13DPO BFP!!!

I am 28, DH is 25, we have been TTC for 11 months. Last week my only sister in law announced she was pregnant with her second baby. Two days ago my little sister and her husband came over to announce they were pregnant with a honeymoon baby. I cried for 24 hours, then decided to get over it and just be happy for them.

Hubby and I prayed everyday together last month that God would grant us a child soon, even that month. So when this month began and the two other family pregnancies were announced I felt a little rejected by God and prayed a little less often. I know... great plan right? I did cry out to him several times to remember me and not leave me alone in pain. I read a book called Supernatural Childbirth that taught me to pray the promises of God from scripture and claim his blessings and promises to his people of fruitfulness on my life.

We were at my aunts lake house when I ovulated, and I got 2 positive ovulation tests on cd 16 and 17. I think I ovulated CD 17 or 18. I didn't have my thermometer that week, so I will assume it was CD 17 but I could be off a day. We BD CD 16 and 18.

I used Preseed as an external lube only this month and didn't use the applicator. I was swimming a lot and very relaxed during O week. I never did get EWCM, just watery for a few days before and after O.

1-5DPO Nothing of interest. Around 3 DPO I started using progesterone cream at night in case I was pregnant to sustain pregnancy.

6-13DPO Sore nipples. Same as last month. (Progesterone cream?)

Somewhere around 6-9DPO I started getting in the mood for eating pickles. I ate THREE on 7DPO. Wasn't HUGE craving, just sounded yummy. We've had the big jar in the fridge for a month and I hadn't eaten any. I must've eaten 7 or 8 that week.

11DPO BFN No symptoms except sensitive nipples, drank a glass of wine after dinner because most people have BFP by 11DPO on here. Took Metformin that night after the wine and felt nauseated till I fell asleep. Assumed it was the wine and metformin disagreeing.

12DPO Two of the faintest Wondfo pregnancy tests I've ever seen. Thought I had a bad batch that was giving me evap lines. Wouldn't even show up on a photo. Negative Digital Clear Blue.

Boobs started aching this night and I noticed when I leaned on the washing machine they felt almost like they were bloated and achy. Not bad at all though, nothing like ladies on here describe it.

13DPO This morning, took a digital with first morning urine, fully expecting a BFN again. When Lo and Behold... BFP! PREGNANT sat there proudly on the screen.

I cried and cried. God is so merciful and good to me to not leave me barren while my sister and sister in law are pregnant. My sister and I have dreamed of this our entire lives.

May God be so gracious to each one of you and thank you for your stories, you have kept me hopeful and in good company while I struggled to hope and wait. I would recommend the book Supernatural Childbirth if you are a Christian woman. It really gave me a new perspective of the power we hold before the throne of God because he loves us and hears us when we cry.

FIRSt IUI BPF/one tube/PCOS

I know everyone on this site is looking for hope! as i have been for the last 2 years and finally here is my BFP !! yay!!! im sooooo happy and nervous at the same time.

my background i only have one tube due to an ectopic pregnancy in the past. so i knew since thn my chances of getting pregnant were lower but not impossible. after TTC on our own for over a year i dicided to go see a fertility Doctor. im not sure why but for me it was kind of embarassing to go to a " fertility doctor" i felt like i had failed a woman
(completely crazy thoughts i know) but we did and he gave us all the options available. he recommended i started with a dye test to check if my only tube was open. Since i was still in denial i told him we would try on our own for 2 more months and wait for after the holidays to start this process. well january was here and no baby bean yet. so i called to schedule my appointmet for a "dye test".

01/2014 dye test results came back good we had one good working tube!! yay
02/14 i had irregular cycles so AF decided not to show this month
March-april -first cycle on clomid =BFN
April-May cycle= after blood work was diagnosed with PCOS was put on Metmormin 50/100/150mg increasing dosage over 3 weeks. had to be on metoformin for 6 weeks before i can do clomid again= all of this equal a BFN on metformin alone

June 2014 now on metforming did my second round of cloind 100mg on CD 5-9. wnt back for sonogram on CD 12 and had 2 follicles one on the right side 20mm and one on left 18mm
06/26/14 trigger shot
06/27/14 IUI
06/28/14 BD

3DPIUI i developed 2 mouth cold sores ( strange)
4-7DPIUI moody/angry
8DPIUI- AF like cramping was starting to feel sad
9DPIUI-sored/heavy boobs
10DPIUI-(TMI alert) foul smell with FMU felt like a yeast infection was coming. tested with dollar tree cheapie BFN
11DPIUI- urine was back to normal on its own. moved on from issue
12DPIUI-i prayed and prayed and asked God for the blessing of being a mother one day. i told him i didnt understand why this was happening but i would try to understand his plan for me. so once i got up i tested with dollar tree cheapie first thing in the morning and got my first very faint Positive! i tested again in the evening same results
13DPIUI- tested in the AM again and the line had a bit more color ( yay) tested at night time with a digital clear blue test and it said " pregnant"

im so excited and nervous just praying everything goes good. i have my blood test today to confirm pregnancy.

Baby Dust to everyone. i know it gets very hard but dont give up!!!

Late ovulation, no +opk, & PCOS

I'm currently 11dpo and got my BFP on 9dpo.
I did take 2.5mg femara this cycle, but I don't think it did much to help. It MAY have jumped ovulation up by a couple of days but there's really no way of knowing.
Here is the run down on what I can remember happening this cycle.

cd3-7... 2.5mg femara
cd 17... Had a glob of thick snotty cm on tp after using the bathroom. Never experienced that before
cd19... Had EWCM, BD'd, raised hips after but still felt like a lot of semen came out, did NOT get a +opk

My opks were getting a little darker so decided I wanted to wait to BD again until I got the +opk which I thought would happen within another day or 2.
It never came so we never BD'd again within my fertile period.

cd23/2dpo... A LOT of creamy lotiony type of cm every time I used the bathroom that day. Also starting around this time my breasts started to get sore.
cd24/3dpo... fertilityfriend gave me crosshairs based on my BBT. Was dubious though since the temps weren't that high.
cd29/8dpo... by this point I had accepted that I may have ovulated and just missed the LH surge w/ the opks. Decided WTH and used a wondfo in the afternoon. Got a shadow line. Used another wondfo a few hours later, same thing. Wasn't getting my hopes up since wondfos are notorious for that. Also was laying in bed with DD and she pressed on my uterus and it hurt like crazy.
cd30/9dpo... Decided to go ahead and use my last FRER w/ FMU. A faint but very visible line showed up within 30sec BFP!. Used a Target brand blue dye and a faint blue line appeared about 10-30sec. Took another FRER in the afternoon and the test line was much more apparent.

And etc etc...
Supplements taken...
Inositol powder every other day twice a day, prenatal, fish oil 2x a day.
I also had my metformin dose increased from 1500 to 2000 recently and think that helped get my cycles somewhat normal.
Really other than that, nothing super special was done. We just got extremely lucky. Just hoping for a sticky bean :)

37 years old, PCOS, and pregnant from IUI!

I was originally a tww stalker 7 years ago when I tried to get pregnant with my first husband at 30. We tried for a year and a half-6 months on clomid, the last two at 150 with IUI's. I had a chemical pregnancy from the 2nd IUI, and then I stopped trying to get pregnant. After all that time I realized I was trying to get pregnant by myself, as crazy as that sounds, so I knew I had to figure out what was going on in my marriage before I kept going. My fertility journey at that time uncovered the problems my marriage had-I wasn't supported and I wasn't happy. It took about a year, but I left him after accepting that I might not have the chance to be a mother in a traditional sense. I knew I had to leave, so I had to let go of my want, obsession with, and dream of being a mom. I was 32, had PCOS, and didn't know if I'd remarry, at least in time to start a family. Fast forward a few years...I just got remarried in December to a wonderful, handsome, and supportive man 6 years my junior. He knew all of my pregnancy worries and drama when we met, and he still married me! God Bless him. So a few months after we married, I went back to the specialist as we had been unofficially trying since we were engaged. They put me on Metformin 50mg, and clomid 50mg, that didn't work. I then had a cycle with 100mg clomid and an IUI on mother's day, and we were both so confident that this was it. Nope. So we got started with an IVF consult, injectables class, and orientation all while doing another round of clomid 150mg and an IUI with a novarel trigger shot. I truly didn't think it was going to work, even though it was the same plan that got me pregnant 6 years ago. I didn't pay much attention to symptoms only because I obsessed the month before and it didn't happen. I decided to jump on the super hopeful train to IVF and that's where I put my energy. The only thing I would say is that my breasts didn't hurt all that much, I felt like I was getting my period, and that's it. On 13dpo, I took a test because I had one at home already and the second line came up in a few seconds. I was calm because I thought it might just be the hcg in my system from the shot, but it wasn't. The blood test the next day came back positive. I'm now at 19dpo and all my numbers are good right now, so I'm happy and shocked and grateful beyond words. My advice to all of you who are reading this is:

For me, I feel that the trigger shot was huge. The month before, they said I didn't need it, but I don't fully believe that so when they gave me the choice to use it this cycle, I chose to.
Ovulation sticks were bs for me. I used the expensive ones with the flashy electronic face, but they didn't work for me. They gave me positives at the wrong times. I believe they work, but the directions say PCOS can affect the effectiveness of the tool so just be careful if you obsess over those also. I know I did, but when they told me to ditch them, I was relieved.
I'm 37 and this worked for me. I know and believe that after 35, our fertility declines. But decline doesn't mean ends.
And lastly-if you feel unsupported on your quest to start a family, reconsider what's going on in your relationship. For me, that was a huge problem and it made me feel terrible. It felt so different with my new, upgraded hubby that I know if this blessing doesn't stick, he will be there for me as we push forward through IVF.

SO Thankful for BFP! 13 DPO!

Hi Ladies

I have PCOS and have had a miscarriage in 2012 and then thankfully had a beautiful baby boy on January 2013. I fell pregnant again but it ended again in a miscarriage in March 2014, but I got my BFP and am VERY excited and have lots of faith that this is going to be a very good, healthy 9 months for baby and I :)

I'm on metformin 500mg 3x per day. I drank it thru out my previous pregnancy also and while I was breasfeeding and had no problems. This website have helped me so much thru my two weeks wait, and i never knew that all the symptoms everyone is mentioning could be from being pregnant.

As soon as I thought i've ovulated I found this website, and then i started noticing that i have some of the same symptoms. It made me positive and excited. DH and I did the baby dance from CD 11 - 18! To make sure we don't miss the egg ;) I think I ovulated on CD 18 because of cramps I got (in both ovaries) I tested a few times after a week or so, but got a BFN, but i sort of knew i was pregnant and i waited till CD 31 when AF was due, and there it was, a BFP!! quite faint, but after 2 days I tested again and it was a lot darker.

I'm not exactly sure how many days past ovulation I felt it all but i'll mention it as I got it

Very intense Lower back pain (felt like a muscle type pain not period type pain)
Very yellow pee (maybe like 4 times that i have noticed)
Sense of smell increased
Heartburn
Stuffy nose
Sore throat
Got dizzy a few times while getting up
I can feel my heart beating bit faster sometimes
Hungry more often
Woke up early mornings from my stomach growling
Faint headaches
Sensitive teeth every now and then

Now at 6 Weeks pregnant I have most of above and
Swollen stomach

I wish nothing but the best for each and every couple who's TTC. Have lots of faith, God is Good!!!
I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!! :)
