Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Preseed

Pre-Seed, the sperm-friendly lubricant (and only lube that should be used while trying-to-conceive) is a staple of the TTC community. We love it, and we'd hazard a guess that all these ladies on this page with BFPs speak highly of it as well!

If you don't have Pre-Seed yet, we recommend you pick some up at Early-Pregnancy-Tests.com. It ships for free anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, and comes with free pregnancy tests. Can't beat that. And when you get your Pre-Seed assisted BFP and you're ready to give credit where credit is due, by all means, send us your symptoms here!

My Rainbow Baby♥️

Okay so a little background info is that I got pregnant accidentally in March of this year and miscarried in May, fast forward to September and we decide to start trying and only used opks that month, it ended in af showing up and so this month we tried; preseed, geritol, temping, opks, and I took a biotin pill everyday Cd 14- I got my positive opk Cd15- temp dip (ovulation) along with some very mild cramping 1dpo- runny nose, specific cramping in my right ovary that lasted hours, and my boobs were sore and that NEVER happens this early, more like 6-7 dpo until I start 2dpo- still stuffy, sore boobs, and still right ovary pain 3dpo- tired, sore boobs, temp rise (confirming ovulation), still stuffy nose 4dpo- exact same as 3dpo 5dpo- super gassy, sore boobs, lotiony cm (and usually it’s pretty dry right about now), SICK! Eyes watering all day, nose like a waterfall, sneezing uncontrollably, and pretty tired 6dpo- it was like yesterday didn’t happen, just a bit of sniffles but that was it!, sore boobs, backache at night, and a temp dip 7dpo- heavy creamy cm, very slight nausea at night, cramping uterus, sore boobs 8dpo- BFN!!! and at this point I’d been having super vivid dreams each night but brushed it off, cramping, sore boobs 9dpo- BFN!!! Ccm, sore boobs, vivid dream, bloated 10dpo- BFN!!! Sore boobs and not much else 11dpo-BFN!!! So I thought I was out and went ahead and had a few drinks this night, extremely hungry, should have known something was up when the alcohol tasted weird, sore boobs 12dpo- SUPER SUPER faint on a test, like literally it was invisible, took 5 and they all looked the same, sore boobs, super calm (and usually now is when I would be a cranky b**ch) still super hungry, cramping 13dpo- darker but still faint BFP!!!- happier than normal, no breakouts, sore boobs, thirsty, and hungry 14dpo- BFP!!!! I can definitely feel myself sleepier than normal, hungry all the time, and more thirsty for no reason (well I guess I do know!!!) I totally thought I was out when I didn’t get a positive until 12 dpo and really questioned if I was pregnant or it was a chemical. But I trust my body to do what’s right and I’m just super excited Rainbow baby due JULY 10TH, 2019!!!!!

BFP at 9 DPO, very few symptoms. BD 2x

My cycles are 33-35 days. We have been trying 3 months total. 2 months ago I had a chemical pregnancy, lines never darkened and eventually faded and my period was 2 days late. This cycle: we used clearblue advanced digital OPK, we used Preseed for the first time. We do some supplements, I take Maca, inositol, and some vitamins. My husband takes vitamins, Maca, tribulus and D-aspartic acid (low sex drive stuff). I also have been doing progesterone cream starting 3-5 dpo last cycle and this cycle. This month my clearblue advanced digital that normally has given 2-3 days of High before peak only gave me 1 day of Peak. Last BD was CD 6. CD 17 = High, BD with preseed at night, rested on my back 30 mins and slept on my right side because that was the side i thought i was O'ing from.. That evening my cheap OPK was SOO virtually positive but the digital still just shCDowed high CD 18= Peak at 5am, nothing else CD 19= O day, BD with preseed at night, same stuff as the the last session 1 DPO= Right pelvic pain 3 DPO= cramps, all day, pressure-y, quite constant, def in my reproductive region and not gas 7 DPO= noticed a little blood when brushing my teeth, just a smidge. negative internet cheapies (turns out my batch absolutely sucked) 9 DPO= AM took internet cheapy, saw a hint of a shadow when light shined behind it.. took Walmart cheapy and FRER, def positive 12 DPO= stuffy nose, light cramping. Dark FRER. Positive digital They have progressed and are looking good! I had more symptoms last month when i didn't conceive!

I can’t believe it!

So this month our first month really trying and surprisingly we got pregnant! This will be our second child. I didn’t use OPKs, but was tracking my cycle with fertility friend. My cycles have been anywhere between 26-32 days with my OV day between 15-18. I got EW CM on CD 13 and CD 14, which led us to BD on CD 14 and CD 15 with preseed. After suspected OV day between CD15 to CD17, I got creamy CM, bursts of energy, tired at night (normally struggle to fall asleep before midnight and was going to bed by 8:30/9), wanted to clean the house constantly (not my thing lol) and got several twinges in my stomach. I was little moody, but that’s not terribly new! Poor DH. My CM has been creamy since OV, which is new as it usually becomes sticky or non existent. I just knew something was different this time. I tested on CD 26 and got my BFP! My DH and I are very excited. Baby will be born in June 2018!! Baby dust to you all!!

1 year after a loss, pregnant with our Rainbow

Like most who come back here, I’ve been stalking this site for a while! Checking my symptoms with all the others and hoping this would be the month! We suffered a second trimester loss a year ago and have been trying ever since. We’ve had two chemicals where the BFPs disappeared and AF came. But not this time! Finally, this is it! Here’s my story/symptoms I took clomid CD 5-9. Got a positive OPK (advanced) on CD 14 and CD 15. I O’ed somewhere in the night between the two. O day- intense cramping. I’ve had two IUIs (different cycles) and one of them had intense cramping. It was just like that. 1DPO intense cramps continued. I felt like it was on both sides, like I could feel my Fallopian tubes contracting. 2-3DPO nothing 4 DPO creamy CM 5 DPO and 6 DPO more cramping. More like AF coming, but I knew that was too soon. 5-9 DPO CM was wet Breast tenderness began to intensify by 7dpo At 8dpo I got a vvvfp on an OSOM SMU. I was hopeful. 9DPO a faint positive on OSOM and First Response and Internet cheapie. Tests have only gotten darker. 10 and 11 dpo. Trouble sleeping. Sick at my stomach. I’m so excited I don’t know what to do. Hoping this little One grows big in there and stays strong for 9 months!

My two week wait

Hey everyone, I have been following this board for some time now and could not wait until I could post my BFP story. Me and DH have only been TTC for four months. We were getting absolutely no where, so I decided the day my period ended this last time I would start taking prenatal vitamins, tracking ovulation and using preseed during my fertile week, I did just that. 1 DPO- nothing 2 DPO- still nothing 3 DPO- Tired, very tired. 4 - 6 DPO - still gassy and tired 7 DPO- light cramps, couldn't sleep through the night which is not normal for me and when I would wake up at night, I'd wake up so hot. Still extremely tired. 8 DPO - Still not sleeping through the night, very vivid dreams, sharp shooting pain in armpits (first time ever). DH said that his grandma had a dream about fish and asked if I was pregnant.. of course I said no because I thought I wasn't just thought my body was preparing for AF. 9 DPO - same symptoms from previous day, tested and BFN. 10 DPO - had a dream I tested and got a faint positive, woke up and decided to test and sure enough I got a faint positive. 11 - 13 DPO - line got increasingly darker with each test!! 13 DPO boobs got extremely big and have been hurting since. Scheduled my first appointment for next Thursday. I completely switched it up this go around, and lucky enough I got my BFP!!! Also, I had tons of creamy CM since 1 DPO

BFP by DPO 28years old

After relentlessly stalking these boards while TTC, I wanted to share my BFP story by DPO in hopes that it gives other future mamas some reassurance like it did for me! I stopped my birth control pills in December, and my husband and I just "let it be" for a few months... that's when i realized that getting pregnant can be much trickier than I ever realized. I feel very blessed that my journey was still so short, because even in my 6-7 months I was so very on edge with everything, but have faith!! I am happy to report that we conceived in June (I am currently 5 weeks 5 days)- with an expected due date of March 19th (not yet confirmed by OB). What I did differently for this month: #1- Tracked OPKs (second month doing this) #2- Tried to have sex every day leading to ovulation (ended up missing O day and the 1-2 days after because we were out of town) #3- Used Preseed (first month using this!) Used like a typical lube, did not do vaginal inserts #4- Did not pee or get up for about 10 minutes after (i usually pee right away) Now, for DPO symptoms: 1 DPO- mild cramps upon waking, went away 3 DPO- mild cramps in the morning and creamy/milky vaginal discharge 4 DPO- creamy/milky vaginal discharge 5 DPO- creamy/milky vaginal discharge 6 DPO- indigestion and upset stomach, creamy/milky vaginal discharge 7 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, headache (pretty mild, took Tylenol and went away), VERY irritable, armpit soreness 8 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge 9 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, tested earlier than i knew i should (BFN on First Resp) 10 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, back aching, indigestion, and mild headache (Possible VVFL on cheapie HPT, didn't get excited about it) 11 DPO- yep, you guessed it-creamy/milky vaginal discharge ... this day i just KNEW something was different in my gut.. tested with Clear blue digital.. BFP "Pregnant" * The biggest sign for me was that i didn't dry up down there like i typically do after ovulation, i had consistent creamy/milky discharge every single day (no burning, pain, itching, etc)... i have never had this happen before, so that was my biggest clue i would say! GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL. IT IS POSSIBLE!!! Baby Dust!!

37 years old & BFP for baby #1!

I still can't believe I finally get to post my own BFP story! After only 6 months of trying, I was starting to worry it would take a lot longer than anticipated. I just turned 37 in April and DH turned 34 in March. This is a first pregnancy for both of us. We've been together for five years, but it was only this year that we finally felt ready to start trying. What I did differently this cycle was acupuncture and Chinese herbs from CD1 and Evening Primrose Oil. I had already been on a regular regime of prenatals, vitamin B complex, vitamins C and D, and COQ10. I got my BFP at 10dpo! My LMP was June 21, meaning that if all goes well, we'll be welcoming our little one at the end of March 2019 - right around DH's birthday! I didn't experience alot of the "typical" symptoms I've read other ladies post about. For example, I did not have implantation bleeding, no breast tenderness, nor did I have a metallic taste in my mouth (and I still don't). In fact, my only two symptoms were fatigue and diarrhea. To be completely honest, I thought we were out this cycle. We only DTD twice and I thought the timing was all wrong. Without further ado, MY symptoms by DPO: 1DPO: Fatigue, creamy cm 2DPO: No notes other than creamy cm 3DPO: Backache, fatigue, frequent urination, dry cm 4DPO: Backache, creamy cm 5DPO: Diarrhea, headache, heartburn, sore throat, creamy cm 6DPO: Chills, diarrhea, emotional, fatigue, sore throat, creamy cm 7DPO: Diarrhea, fatigue, hot flashes, creamy cm 8DPO: Backache, diarrhea, creamy cm 9DPO: Thought for sure AF was on the way because I had a huge energy boost and urge to clean absolutely everything! Felt great and was able to get a lot accomplished. 10DPO: Urge to clean continued, urgent diarrhea. OMG! FAINT BFP ON WONDFO! 11DPO: Faint BFP once again on Wondfo! Wowzers! 12DPO: BLAZING FRER! Lit up like a Christmas tree almost IMMEDIATELY. Got bloods done which confirmed hCG levels at 96, which is consistent with 1-2 weeks gestational age. That's it! It happened quietly and without much to go on, which is why I wasn't counting on this month. Since learning of my BFP, the sore boobs have kicked in as has the cramping/stretching and some mild nausea. Good luck to all of you reading! I never thought I'd be posting about my good news so soon, so just know it can happen when you least expect it!

BFP with regular PMS symptoms

Hello! First- that picture has a lot more clear positive line in the HD pic. 32 y/o obese woman with very regular, but long (29-31 day) cycles. I had an abdominal myomectomy for LARGE fibroids in Nov last year (8 months ago). They were all perdunculated so my uterus wasn't cut. Period came back in February (took FOREVER) and then... I would say this (june-july)was the first month we started trying, since we decided after I ovulated in May to start, so I don't think it counts. We had a lot of BDing in my fertile week with Preseed. I used to ovulate tests for fun and we didn't BD the night I was positive- my vagina was tired. Oh, and I started taking prenatal vitamins probably in April at my doctors suggestion. Tested this morning, first day of my would be period- CD 31. Usually I can notice some blood before my period for a few days because I look super hard- this month, I had some bleeding on likely 12 dpo but it was just there when I specifically checked my cervical mucus. I've been checking a lot and could have irritated my cervix, or it could have been implantation but... Well you'll see why I don't think it was. So all the days this month, my symptoms have been mostly normal. I get the lot of them- nausea, cramping, minor headaches, sore boobs, hunger, emotional instability, constipation, etc. So here's the difference. At 7dpo I had cramps mid afternoon. I felt like I had to poo, and while I could a little the pain wasn't going away. It was around my belly button and into my abdomen. After an hour I laid in bed with tears of frustration and pain. It was intense. After 2.5 I considered the hospital. Then, after 3 hours, I felt gas move and the pain lessened. For the next four days I had minor belly button pains and (normal) constipation. I don't know if it was implantation or anminor blockage. it's never happened to me before. I think back on it- some years ago I had them take a sample of my endometrial lining and it hurt so bad I cried; the doctor thought I was nuts- so let's just say I'm a wuss or my uterus is very sensitive. And recently I noticed I am not having night sweats. Usually the days leading up to my period I wake up soaked in sweat. I didn't. I didn't think much of it, though- especially because I stopped being constipated, which happens the closer to get to my period. So I'm checking for blood 2 days ago and get a smidge in my CM at night. Nothing coming out- I literally touched my cervix to check. The next morning there was some tiny bit when I checked- all pink- and after that there was none. I continued to obsessively check my CM and it got very very white and creamy. My cervix was medium height, and felt like it might've been open but I don't know I can't tell. It was soft though! I recommend not being so obessive because although I washed my hands before every time my vaginal canal is getting burn-y/irritated. It's very sensitive. Peed on a stick when I woke this morning and honestly I can barely wrap my mind around it. My uterus has been sore today, sensitive, I keep having to pee and I'm light headed and nauseated. That's my story and I hope it helps :) I can't tell anyone but DH it's only 4 weeks so Im so elated and hopeful and trying not to worry that anything will go wrong.

Pregnant after MC

My husband and I started trying in 2016, but after 6 months of no luck we took a break until fall of 2018. We got pregnant the 2nd month in; I had a full period in November but still felt off. I took a test and it was definitely positive! However, at 5 weeks we ended up having a miscarriage. My cycle was all thrown off for a month or so, but we kept trying. Finally at the end of June I got my BFP! Here’s my story by dpo: CD 15: O day! We DTD on cd 12, 14, 15, & 16. I used opks to track my surge. Used preseed all times. Felt left side O pains. DPO 1-6: Absolutely nothing. I usually get insanely sore boobs, but nothing this month. I even wrote that in my FF notes on dpo 6. I attributed it to eating better and working out this month. DPO 7: Right side cramps. DPO 8: Right side cramps, slightly sore boobs. Negative hpt. DPO 9: Brown spotting right on time (my LP is usually 10-11 days and I spot starting at day 9). I took an IC anyways and I swore I saw something but chalked it up to line eye. Also had right side cramps, middle cramps, gassy, and bloated. DPO 10: Brown spotting which then turned to reddish brown for a couple wipes. Took an IC and saw a vvvfl. Took a FRER and still saw a vvvfl. Freaked out and told my husband. Still had right side pain, gassy, flushed feeling during day, slightly sore boobs, and nausea. DPO 11: Spotting very light until it stopped by the evening. Definitely a BFP, but still vvvfl. Right side pain, light regular cramps, bloated, nauseas, warm, and sore boobs. DPO 12-16: Missed period on Dpo 12!!! Lines getting darker on tests, hungry all the time, lightly sore boobs, bloated after eating, Nausea comes and goes, warm all the time! Had blood work done on dpo 13 & 15 and just waiting to hear my numbers today. I’m just praying this is a sticky baby!!!

Third Times a Charm

Hi Ladies! Stalked this board for the past 4 months and promised myself to share my own story as reading through these boards really helped comfort me during the TWW. Little bit about me- I am 26 years old and my fiancé is 34. I had been on the pill since I was 18 years old and just went off in January 2018. My first period was 5 days late and then next cycle I was right back on track. I have a 28 day cycle and AF always shows up on time. We weren’t actively trying as soon as I got off the pill- we decided because we were moving into our new home end of march that we would begin trying after my period in early April. I definitely thought it was going to be super easy and that it would happen the first time no problem, so when AF showed up right on time it was a big bummer. I cheered myself up and reminded myself that it takes most couples a year- I decided no more tears until at least 4 months of trying. AF showed up the second time right on time again. My only main concern was that since being off the pill I have not had ANY EWCM. We used Pre-seed every time we BD the first month, and did the deed every night 5 days up to the big O and 2-3 days after to be safe. Here’s what we did this time round: Decided to not buy any OPK’s. B/c my cycle is already regular I knew approx when I would ovulate and decided to not get caught up in waiting for that smiley face to appear. We BD every night for a week leading up to ovulation. I had been taking prenatals since April but this month started taking an additional B12/B6 vitamin everyday as well. For the week leading up to OV i started taking evening primrose oil (supposed to help with CM) I started the dose low- 100mgs right after my period ended and then 300mgs two days before O and the day of. I suspected I ovulated June 16th but had no symptoms but I stopped the primrose oil that day. I also had freshly squeezed grapefruit juice everyday for the week leading up to O (also supposed to help with CM) I still had no EWCM in my in underwear during my cycle- just creamy CM. However on the day I suspected I ovulated we BD and when he pulled out there was definitely EWCM on both of us (TMI, sorry) I only used Preseed on the day before O this time. AF was supposed to show her face June 29th and didn’t but I felt low dull cramping all day and new she was coming....but never did. The only symptom Ive had is sore boobs. My nipples always get tender before O and then feel better before AF. This time my boobs are quite tender at the sides near my armpits. The only other symptom I can think of is that I have been STARVING- I ate so much yesterday and nothing was satisfying me. Nothing other than that. I took a test last night (day AF was due) and got a BFN- Threw it in the garbage. Woke up this morning with still no AF- I checked the test in the garbage (dollar store test) and its a BFP!! I took a FRER and CBD this morning and both positive- 2 weeks. I go for a blood test on Wednesday. Keep your fingers crossed for me and good luck ladies!
