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!! :)

PCOS- 9 weeks pregnant with our first!

I wanted to post to this message board as it was so helpful for me to read the BFP stories during my own journey.

I was diagnosed with PCOS as a teenager but my symptoms were treated successfully for 10 years using the birth control pill.

When I went off of the pill, my husband and I knew it could be challenging for us to get pregnant as my cycles were irregular and all my hormone levels were out of whack (very low progesterone, etc.) I don't believe I was ovulating on my own during this time.

After a year of trying to regulate and trying 3 cycles of clomid unsuccessfully, I was referred to the fertility specialist. This was such a blessing- feel so blessed to say that my BFP came in 3 short months!

We did 3 cycles with the fertility dr- each time, I took Letrazole and a trigger shot to induce ovulation. The first 2 (unsuccessful) cycles, we did an IUI in addition to timed intercourse. The third cycle, I was a bit tired from the emotional & financial investment in the IUI, so we tried timed intercourse only after the shot. Amazingly, this was the successful cycle and I got my BFP two weeks later!!!

We are now 9 weeks pregnant and have been discharged back to my regular OB!

I wanted to share two overall thoughts based on our experience: 1. When in doubt, go to the specialist sooner rather than later! Had I known how quickly it could happen even with PCOS, I would have gone a year earlier! 2. Trust your instincts! The fertility specialists are amazing and certainly know what they're doing, but I'm glad I listened to my gut the 3rd time around not going with the IUI. I know it may have been the same outcome, but maybe following my instincts helped me to calm my nerves and allow the process to happen.

Best of luck to anyone who reads!

BFP after 2 months with thin pcos and mild endometriosis

After going off of birth control pills for 10 years, I only had 3 periods in the following 9 months, one of which lasting 60 days. I went to my obgyn even though we were ttc yet, and tested positive for PCOS. He told me it would get difficult to get pregnant on my own and so we decided to start ttc asap with the help of clomid. I started clomid 50 mg without having a period first, did not ovulate at all. In addition I had just started acupuncture and herbal medicine at this time. I also started a low carb diet, a prenatal vitamin, and daily inisotol. The second month I had been doing these things for a few weeks and we decided to try clomid 50 mg again, again without a period first. I ovulated and got my BFP 2 weeks later. Symptoms were extreme cramping which intensified the week before my BFP and sore breasts a few days post ovulation. I really do believe the acupuncture and herbal medicine were huge contributing factors and would recommend them to everyone.

Finally bfp after 26 months! I have pcos

I just found out that I am two weeks pregnant! I would be due march 1st!!!It's feels surreal because I really started losing hope after the first year of trying. I am 31 years old and dh is 32.

I didn't have help from fertility drugs or anything. I have two sons that are 10 and 11 and I figured that if it was right for us it would happen. I concieved my first son after 5 months and my second son after the first time, so I didn't believe this time around would be so tricky.

I know exactly when I concieved because my dh and I have been so incredibly busy these past few weeks. I could pinpoint when we concieved, right on ovulation day actually. Here are my symptoms:

ovulation day..... A lot of cramping, more than usual

day 1-7..... Nothing

day 7-14...... Extreme hot flashes? I don't know if to call them hot flashes as I have never experienced actual hot flashes... But I felt really really warm. I also had to pee frequently and had sore boobs. I always get sore boobs a few days before period though so I didn't really view this as a pregnancy sign.

Today I am two days late and bam bfp.... First with a dollar store cheapie and then confirmed with clear blue.

when you have waited this long, you really don't want to even keep track of anything anymore. I am really happy and feel truly blessed to be carrying this little blessing. It feels surreal right now.

Please don't lose hope.... That's all we have at the end of the day.... The odds were against us.... With me having pcos.... And also hypothyroidism.

stay hopefull and keep trying. It's funny because right now there are so many changes happening in out lives, that although a baby was always a wish if mine.... I was so busy with other things am then surprise!.❤️
