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!

First Time Around...BFP

I am so excited. I had to log on and tell my story because I read all of yours when I was in my tww. So here goes...

My husband and I decided on January 1st that we would start trying. I had my Mirena removed on December 5th so, we were expecting that it would take 6 months to a year to conceive. I actually started taking a cocktail of VITEX, Maca, and Tribulus once a day on January 1st because my cycle in December was anovulatory. I watched a fertility specialist on youtube discuss the herbs that she recommends and I was sold. Low and behold, we conceived on the first try. I don't even know how that is possible. But, here is how it all happened:

CD 1- 4 Bleeding
CD 9,11, and 15 BD (each BD I inserted my Diva Cup before I got up to go to the bathroom and we used pre-seed)
CD 15 - positive OPK
CD 16 - Suspected ovulation day (fertility friend)
1DPO - Tender breasts everyday until positive pregnancy test and EXTRA EXTRA creamy CM
4DPO - Sharp pain in lower abdomen, dull backaches, tingling in my nostrils, itchy nipples
5DPO-7DPO- Constant cramping. We were snowed-in, so I laid around over the weekend, trying to figure out if my period was starting a week early because of the herbs I started taking.
8DPO- lower back aches, dizziness, and constipation
9DPO - FRER faint BFP, Wandfo BFN, ClearBlue Digital Pregnant 1-2 weeks past ovulation and lots of heartburn
10DPO- FRER DARK BFP
12DPO- FRER DARK BFP
12DPO- Blood test shows 120 hcG levels and I still haven't technically missed my period yet

Today, I am 15 DPO I am beyond excited this is so unexpected. My husband was so shocked and so was my mom. I cannot wait to tell the rest of my friends and family after the first trimester.

I hope this helps someone else out. I tested at 9DPO and swore it would be negative. But, the dizziness the night before is what gave it away. Don't be afraid to go buy a FRER if you are having symptoms. The Wandfos are still barely showing a line, even though my blood test is confirmed positive. Baby dust to you all...

Faint bfp at 11dpo!!

I had very few symptoms but here they are:

1-5dpo no symptoms

6dpo pains in lower abdomen, sore breasts, irritable

7dpo woke up with sore throat, really sore breasts esp when first wake up and they seem fuller, less irritable, bit of white cm

8dpo woke up with sore throat again, breasts still pretty sore, took short nap in afternoon but mostly because I was depressed because I didn't think I was pregnant, moody and irritable, stuffy nose

9dpo night sweats, boobs less sore but super full, tooth that had root canal years ago sore, got full really fast at dinner, bloated, notice big blue vein on breast

10dpo boobs still sore but less so, fatigue, depressed, cloudy urine, bfn

11dpo took pregnancy test after work, super faint bfp!!! Shocked and amazed!

12dpo take another test in am another faint line!

13dpo another test with a darker line!!!

Pretty much all my symptoms could of happened any other month. I typically get sore boobs before my period and its January so waking up with sore throat isn't that strange. Good luck to everyone ttc! Hope you get bfp's soon!

BFP after 3months TTC!

So to start off I've had two early m/c both when I was younger. My DH and I have been ttc for 3months now. I quit smoking, drinking, drinking caffeine, and started taking a prenatal vitamin about 1mo before ttc. I got my BFP 2days ago, and am praying for a sticky bean!!! I used ClearBlue OPKs to monitor my fertile peaks, and PreSeed lubricant while trying. I know it might sound weird, but I think what did it this month was doing the "bicycle" with my legs in the air after BD for at LEAST 30min. Here are my symptoms I tracked with Ovia Period/Fertility tracker (an app on my smartphone that's free!)
1dpo-3dpo: Sore throat and gassy.
4dpo-BFP: cramps that ranged from twinges of pain, to pulling sensations, to downright breathtakingly painful.
6dpo-BFP: Sore BBs &EXTREMELY sensitive/in pain nips. Also, suddenly exhausted all the time. Napping, very odd for me.
12dpo-BFP: Bloating very badly. (Wearing my wedding ring became impossible) Woke up with acid reflux every morning, and suffered from it after every meal.
13dpo-BFP: Very sore lower back and hip joints, could barely walk at some times.
I got my BFP at 17dpo, which was the day before my period. My cycles are usually 35days long. I POAS the night before my period was scheduled to begin, and got a very solid BFP!!! Needless to say, I am terrified and ecstatic all at once! Pray for a sticky bean, and baby dust to everyone!!!

BFP at 11dpo!!

I'm so excited to be posting this!! This month I told my DH that I was sick of getting BFNs and we were going to try really hard this month. In October I had a really long cycle with some faint BFPs, but they were all blue dye so I'm not sure if it was a chemical or just evaps. Anyway. I started taking Geritol after some research and that convincing motto "There's a baby at the bottom of every bottle." We also followed the SMEP method and used preseed during the fertile window. I didn't get many symptoms except before 6dpo. On 6dpo I woke up with the worst charlie horse in my leg. The only other time I had this was when I was pregnant with DD. I also started getting tired earlier and had a couple days when I woke up with a headache that lasted all day. The other thing I noticed was that my temps were lower than they usually are in the 2ww. There was still a clear temp shift, just not as high. I didn't really feel different, but my instincts told me this was the month. I usually drink alcohol through the 2ww, but not this time. Not even on NYE. Good luck to all you ladies!!!

Well THAT caught us off guard! :)

Hello,

A short little background on me and DH. DH is 34, I'm 31 and we were TTC for 8 months. We have no kids yet so this is our first and we are so excited!! :) We weren't trying for a couple cycles due to me needing surgery and we didn't want to push it back. My cycle started December 9th and that was supposed to be our buffer month - the one to get us back into a routine to actively try this month.

Now, onto our BFP and I hope I can give you ladies some excitement and hope. We decided to use Preseed but wait on using the full amount in December. All we did was use some on myself and a little on him. Maybe the size of a dimes worth on me. It wasn't much. I decided not to temp or use OPK's. We just had some fun and enjoyed each other. We did manage to have fun the week I was supposed to be fertile but I couldn't tell you what day I O'ed. I believe it was 3 times. That's it. And then I didn't think about anything after that.

I didn't feel a thing for a while - no PMS symptoms but I wasn't ruling that in my favour. I had been let down so many times before that I couldn't handle any more disappointment. A few days before I tested, I did notice symptoms but I assumed they were PMS. All they were was cramps that felt like af, headches, tiredness and feeling nauseous. The one thing I didn't notice at the time was I didn't have my usual chocolate craving but that wasn't until the night before I tested. I tested the day before af was to arrive to prepare myself for her arrival and the next thing I knew I was seeing a second line. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but nope, DH looked and he saw it too!! It was pretty dark for testing early. We went and got some FRER's and a digital one. Over the night and the next morning, I got BFP's! I even took another digital one on Sunday and it said I was 2-3 weeks, which translates to 4-5 full weeks. So everything's right on schedule. Just waiting for my blood work to essentially comfirm my BFP!

Ladies, I know we only tried for 8 months but the emotional roller coaster is real. Every time a BFN is staring you in the face, it's easy to just give up and want to forget the whole thing. It's NORMAL to feel that way. It's NORMAL to feel upset about hearing someone else get a BFP. (I fully expect that when you read this message.) But do one thing for me: Don't ever give up! Keep trying and keep pushing until you get your BFP OR you get some answers. Please - this is such an incredible thing that I want you ALL to experience this one way or another.

Babydust to you all. I'm going to continue to come back to the TTC boards to see how everyone is doing! <3

Stop Stressing, relax, and just let it happen.

I had three kids at a young age 16, 17, 19. At 21 I got my tubes tied because it was clear that things were not going to work out between my kids father and I. I vowed that if I ever had kids again that my husband would love me enough to understand why I tied my tubes and we would untie them if he truly wanted kids. (It seemed so simple) Flash forward 6 years later I meet the man of my dreams and he has no kids. We get married, untie tubes and after a year of trying NOTHING! Super depressed we tried and finally we stop trying and BOOM I was pregnant. One week later we miscarried. So with the hope and assurance that the surgery worked we tried again and nothing for another year and half. In October 2015 I started clomid. The first cycle failed. I was so livid on the next cycle I was like "F THIS! I don't want to try, I don't care anymore." I stopped researching every symptom. Wishing every pregnant women was me. Hoping that I was next. Jealous of my friends for being pregnant with ease. While I was stuck here trying for yet another year paying for infertility meds. I completely rejected the idea that I would even be pregnant. I would say 'NO SORE BOOBS NO PREGNANCY" So much so I didn't even test before it was time to see my doctor. I didn't realize how addicted I was to researching every symptom in every forum. It was actually depressing me. Not caring if I was or not was much less stressful. When I suppose to go get my meds for the third cycle of Clomid they made me take a test. She told me it was negative. While waiting for the my paper work the nurse calls the Dr. and she says "IT'S POSITIVE!!!" (I told them Dr.'s aren't suppose to lie to their patients. It's rude." lol) Blood test confirmed! I used Preeseed, Mucinex, Clomid and Estradol. On the last cycle and while BDing DH would tell me to just relax. I guessed it worked.

1-16 DPO NO SYMPTOMS, NOTHING AT ALL!

Don't be discourage if you don't have any symptoms. I would swear I had every symptom there was and every time it was Negative. I was a POASA. I would squint at every PT thinking there was a line. There never was.

I'm 5 weeks and 3 days now and I have sore boobs and I'm so incredibly hungry all the time.

Good Luck! Prayer works! Gory be to God he knew when the right time was.

Ahhhh!!!!!! 14 dpo

Okay okay I literally just got my bfp!! Told hubby celebrated and now I HAVE to tell y'all! Ok so I bought two namebrands of dt tests today, assured and new choice. Took the assured this morning after I had peed twice and got a line so faint I didn't believe it. Hubby felt sure it was positive so I posted in am I pregnant? They never even posted it to the site but I waited to pee 4 hours and took the new choice.... Big fat freaking positive!!!!!!!! We have been trying for 7 or 8 months and I had lost hope.. I didn't have many symptoms except one itchy nipple, being extra sleepy, and aversion to alcohol.
I go through phases when I am extra sleepy so I didn't really count that. Also, I hardly drink anymore since ttc so when two drinks made me want to go to sleep last night I didn't really even consider it a red flag. Gosh hubs was so mad when he had to let me take a 2 hr nap before the ball dropped lol now he feels bad!

We had been using opks but DID NOT this month... I think all of our Christmas distractions helped relieve the baby making stress and made this possible. (:

Tubal Reversal BFP!!! 2nd Cycle after MMC!!

WOW!!! What an end to the year, huh?? Little background: I'm 25, DH 25 as well. We have 2 living children. Tubal Ligation after the birth of our DD in 2011, TR 6/2014. Since then I have been pregnant 3 times: First time with my micro preemie Tinsley (she passed away at 5 weeks old after I had a terrible bout of Pre Eclampsia that had me in labor and delivery at only 26 weeks gestation *May She Rest In Peace*), next BFP in August of this year that unfortunately ended in a MMC (I kind of knew something was going to go wrong with that pregnancy because I got my BFP AFTER a normal AF...ya that wasn't going to be pretty), and lastly right now!!! Praying this is a sticky baby, and a TAKE HOME BABY as well. Here's what DH and I did:

-AF 12/3/15
-AF End 12/7/15
-DTD CD: 5,7,9,11
-Pos. OPK on CD 12, Strong pos. OPK on CD 13
-DTD CD: 12, 13,14,16 (SPERM MEETS EGG PLAN basically) O'd on CD 14
-1 DPO (CD 15)-- 7 DPO: Nothing I can recall honestly. I was trying not to spot symptoms and there were few to be honest. Maybe some cramping around 7 DP0 but nothing I can remember, and to be honest if I DID have any feelings here and there 9/10 they weren't pregnancy related because baby wouldn't have even implanted yet.
8/9 DPO- CRAMPS!!! A TON OF CRAMPS!!!! I MEAN SERIOUSLY CRAMPS!! I remember feeling tired too. Squinter on a FRER. Is this my BFP??
9/10 DPO: More cramping and feeling very sleepy. I take a nap today (I NEVER nap) and when I awoke I felt a wave of nausea that I continued to feel for the next few days, to be honest, especially after laying down. BFP!!! Faint line.
10DPO-13DPO (today): I probably tested with 10 FRERS. My lines were all over the place and had me thinking Chemical Pregnancy. I mean some days they looked like they weren't even changing darkness. I literally sat over the last few days thinking AF was going to come when she was due or shortly there after because my lines were not getting any darker. I think ONE test out of all my FRER's was darker. But even that was light. I was SOO emotional all these days and cried a ton thinking "why can't I STAY pregnant?". DH was optimistic, though. Said maybe it was just too early still. I also had, and still have, a slight cold (coughing a lot) and have a nice amount of creamy CM that I have noticed over the last 4 or 5 days (maybe since implantation??) Eating more, peeing more. For SURE!
13 DPO (today): I decided to test just one more time with a new FRER since my Walmart (88c cheapies) seemed to be progressing over the last day or so. Odd, I thought. I kept thinking "how in the hell are they getting darker after almost 5 days of FAINT BFPS??". So I bought another pack of FRER and said screw it! Took another test this afternoon (like 5th day urine) and it was the darkest BFP I have received thus far!!! YAY!!!!!! Looked perfect for 13dpo. I guess my test needed for me to pass the day of AF to really get dark. And the BITCH didn't show today!!! So don't fear if your test aren't dark when testing EARLY. It may get darker by day of missed AF or shortly after.

DH and I seriously stuck to the SMEP, we used Preseed EACH and EVERY time, I laid down after every BD and went to sleep. I take a prenatal every day and try to walk at least 3 days out of a week. I took Mucinex a few days leading up to O, but I ran out and didn't buy anymore after that. I don't make a lot of fertile CM so I think that in conjunction with Preseed is a winner!! Ladies if you are on the fence about Preseed, DON'T BE!! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!! I swear I get pregnant much faster with it, 1st or 2nd cycle each time. I am praying this one sticks because the last MMC had me so shaken up. I also prayed so, so HEAVILY this cycle and over the last few days. I told myself this new year is a year for GREAT THINGS and asked God to make it so. So far, God is in agreement with this pregnancy. One thing I can say that is different from the other 2 pregnancies post TR (THANK GOD) is I have NO spotting or bleeding. With my late DD I had spotting for WEEKS before and after bfp, but that pregnancy progressed fine until I succumbed to the PRE Eclampsia and had to deliver her early. With the MMC I had a WHOLE AF!! Tested a day after she left and DARK BFP! So I can at least be happy in that so far, no bleeding. Just a LOT of creamy CM!!! And I mean A LOT!!! Good luck ladies!!!!!! Hope that was thorough enough. I always try to be as detailed as possible with these posts. Stay positive!!!

BFP on Christmas Morning

We have been TTC since January of 2015 when I had my 5 year Mirena IUD removed. After 8 months of trying to get my cycle on track we got pregnant in September of 2015, sadly that pregnancy resulted in a chemical pregnancy at 15dpo AF showed up heavier then normal.
December we decided to BD every other day until a positive OPK and then every day for a few days. We used preseed each time we BD, on Vitex since May 2015 (1 pill a day) as well as Fertile CM from CD 1 to O day.

CD 13 BD Preseed (internal and external)
CD 15 +OPK BD morning and night (internal and external)
CD 16 +OPK BD night (definitely O day twinges and EWCM) (internal and external)
CD 17 -OPK BD night (1 DPO) (internal and external)

1DPO - 5DPO - nothing not a thing, CM did dry up but no after O breast pain. Nothing.
6DPO - while laying in bed had a horrible sharp stabbing pain in my uterus area, lasted about 30 seconds and was gone.
7DPO - Horrible headache today and IBS acting up
8DPO - Noticed I was light headed when standing up suddenly
9DPO - Minor breast achiness - POAS Wonfo in the evening swear I could see a hint of a line. DH said I was imagining things.
10DPO - Dreamed of a getting a BFP. POAS in the AM Wonfo again faint positive. DH saw it this time. Went out and bought FRER mid day POAS faint BFP.
11DPO - Christmas Morning - FRER BFP, light headed again today and hungry
12DPO - Tested again this morning as worried about Chemical - BFP on FRER with FMU. In the evening used a clear blue digital PREGNANT. Really hungry again today.
13DPO - Had to test again BFP on FRER with FMU. Every day from there I POAS and the line got darker. Currently 15 DPO and the line finally beat the control.

Still praying for a sticky bean but getting really excited. This month was definitely different pretty much no signs of AF or pregnancy. So when a BFP showed I was in shock.

BFP by dpo- after 2yrs TTC with Details

Hi ladies...I've stalked and participated this site for a while. Ive stalked it for abt a year and have been actively participating for two months. I met an amazing group of women in the TTC forums. Feel free to check us out at "New Babies for the New Year" . Everyday I read BFP stories no matter how old they are as ive found so much comfort in them and promised that i would not hesitate to share my story if i was ever so blessed to get a BFP.

Me and DH have been ttc for 2 years and its been rough. With not even a hint of a BFP i was really thinking that it may just not happen. I have (UD) uterus didelpys which means i have two completely separate uterus/ 2 cervices/ 2 vaginas and each uterus has its own Fallopian tube. I dont believe that it was so much of the UD that made it so complicated i believe it was multiple things. Started charting my cycles obsessively a few months ago and realized there were some issues. I found out that i have multiple LH surges in my cycle. Thank goodness i had decided to use OPKs all cycle long. I realized i was have 3 separate surges(CD 8/9, CD 11 but the last one was the real one. The only way i was able to tell is by checking my CP and sure enough it was high mushy soft and open. I noticed that i didnt have the ewcm so i used Pre-Seed. I truly recommend this product as the only cycled i used it in is the cycle i got my BFP. Also we started taking Fertilaid (men/women). I stopped taking fertilaid after 45 days. Only because i just wanted that boost of progesterone from the Chasteberry. I did stop because i didnt want my body to get use to chasteberry making it produce progesterone. I just wanted it as a booster. Ive heard of women having MC due to stopping chasteberry(vitex) so i didnt want to be dependent on it. We used the SMEP method which i believe every couple ttc should use but whatever works works right :)

12/13 - High fertile , No BDng
12/14 - High fertile, BD
12/15 - positive OPK, BD with Pre-Seed
12/16 - Super positive OPK "OVULATION" (bbt 97.2), BD with Pre-Seed
12/17 - (1 dpo - bbt, 97.6) Negative OPK but CP still open and high so we BD with Pre-Seed

2-4dpo - No Symptoms. bbt 97.6, little cm, CP high and firm

5-7dpo - breast tingled on and off, bbt 98.4, little cm, CP high firm

8dpo - headache, little cm, bbt 98.4, BFN on wondfo, CP low and firm

9dpo - no symptoms, little cm, bbt 98.0, BFN on wondfo, indigestion in the middle of the night, CP medium high. tilted, and firm

10dpo- BFN on wondfo, btt 98.0, no symptoms really... indigestion in the middle of the night, vivid dream i took my BBT using a straw. lol. Thought that was strange. Im suspicious at this point at the lack of pms symptoms, CP low and somewhat firm.

11dpo - bbt 98.4, indigestion, no real symptoms, little cm. CP low, firm...Woke up did an hpt with wondfo. Placed it on window and went back to sleep. Woke up and saw a very faint line. Fell on the floor crying laughing crying then immediately thought if this evap i will find wondfo's factory and give then a piece of my mind.... Then i thought something is wrong with my eyes because i just woke up from a nap. So i kept blinking till i felt like 20/20 vision was in full effect (lolololol. i know im crazy but i blinked a million times till i knew i wasnt fooling myself then cried for 10 minutes again did another wondfo and FRER digital got another Faint BFP and a YES+ with FMU. Later in the evening I got a very visible BFP with Wondfo with 4hr hold.

12dpo - BBT, 98.39 Another BFP with a similar line to yesterday's evening test. I will be doing a CB digital tomorrow. Late night i had some mild cramping and aches. My breast did finally get a bit tender. Nothing crazy. This morning feeling off a bit. Leg cramps and somewhat nauseated, Strange twinges on right side but overall just happy. CP still low, but it feels strange in there now.

The lack of PMS symptoms, the two nights not being able to sleep all night, one vivid dream, and the indigestion were what made me suspicious. I had no increase CM. Just barely there creamy when checking my CP but not enough for discharge. My CPs are low and slight firm. One CP is tilted but kind of firm. My chart which im going to find out how to post in a minute is almost textbook Triphasic.

I told DH this morning. We exchange gifts daily till New Years so this was perfect. I bought some pacifiers and placed it in a gift box with the +HPT. He was so excited he couldnt stop smiling. IM STILL IN SHOCK. Cant believe that we finally have our BFP. I do believe that the Pre-Seed and FertilAid (for men and women) contributed to this. Though i stopped taking the FertilAid 3 weeks ago. The PreSeed and Fertilaid for men is definitely a must have.... Praying for a sticky bean. Baby dust to all!
