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!

5th round of clomid

My husband and I had been ttc for 10 months since having paragaurd IUD removed. This month was the first month I really thought was a bust. We were on vacation, not a relaxing one either, and I had a mishap with a soft cup on the day I knew I was ovulating. This was our first month using soft cups and I was a bit nervous about doing it right, but I really do believe that these and some preseed were very helpful, and I would recommend them to any lady who is ttc. I can totally relate when ladies say they had more symptoms on their BFN months, I had it all, nausea, sore boobs, mood swings, bloating, crying hysterically. Then I read these symptoms can all be side effects of climid. But this month nothing really made the lightbulb come on. I even decided we would take six month off and started planning a really great summer around 8 dpo because I was positive I was not pregnant. So here are my symptoms though they weren't much: cd 15-high fertility on CB ovulation test bd'd with pressed and soft cups cd 16-travelling from 2am till 12 but make time to bd with SoftCups and Preseed. Feel disheartened that I can't lay down for long after. cd 17- ovulation day, great day at disney world, and had a few too many drinks that night, bd'd with SoftCups and Preseed 1dpo-10dpo-nothing really, felt tired but I thought it was just from traveling. Felt very defeated/depressed because I thought I was out again. The only thing that i noticed was different was that I usually had cm in my undies at this point till af, but nothing there. Also around 9dpo till now have had bm's 2 or three times a day. 11dpo- notice i can't find the opening of my cervix when checking cp. Found it pointing all the way toward tailbone, never felt it like this before, also felt slimy mid height and hard. still feeling sad but no other symptoms. 12-dpo awoke up early and tested. walked away knowing it was negative, went back to look and saw a faint second line! tested again later that night and line is darker! no cm in undies, very tired that night in bed at 8 13-dpo- tested on CB digital and the word pregnant came up immediately! no cm in undies,hunger pains, irritable and very tired in bed at 8 14dpo- still not many symptoms, tired, irritable ( bitchy is a better word) and hungry more than usual, no cm in undies I think I have the normal fears that af will show up, but I'm trying to stay positive and just repeat to myself that my body is ready for this. Hopefully it will help and I hope that I helped someone else. Its a dark and lonely place when your ttc for awhile, no one quite understands how it feels unless they've been through it. Try not to let it take over your life, talk to someone who gets it if you can, and focus your energy on something else.

BFP after 8 months - ZERO symptoms in tww

This is to encourage the over-analyzers like me, who google obsessively and over-think every little (PMS!!) symptom in the tww. I would get all the typical "pregnancy" symptoms every month (sore boobs, fatigue, fluttery-like dull cramps) around 8 or 9 DPO and then a few days later my period would be like "get over yourself it's just meee!" This past month I was starting to really feel like something must be wrong with me; I am an avid charter (started charting as pregnancy prevention 2 years ago) and have very regular cycles, am 25 years old, and have no health issues. I really thought it would happen for us right away. I know a lot of people try for longer than 8 months, but it starts to FEEL like a long time after about 4 or 5 I think. Anyway, this month during the tww I never got those symptoms. Like, I felt nothing at all! This actually gave me some hope because it was just something DIFFERENT than the usual. At 11 DPO, still with no noticeable symptoms, I decided to test with a FRER first thing in the morning and it was a faint but clear positive!! Since then they have been getting darker and darker. So so thankful and I know that God's timing is so much better than mine. I should note there are a couple of things we did differently this cycle. I started a new multivitamin (Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal) after reading about folate vs folic acid. After CD 14-18 came and went I started getting all stressed out that ovulation was delayed (thought maybe it could be the change in vitamin??) so my husband and I just had sex every other day not really knowing when I was going to ovulate. Usually we do it every single day in the fertile window (which IS recommended, just interesting that the first month we didn't do that is the month we got the bfp!). I finally did ovulate on CD 21. We always use pre-seed and I always wait about 30 minutes before getting up afterward. Also I probably had less cm overall this cycle than ever, so maybe the pre-seed helped me out. Now that I have officially missed my period and am almost 5 weeks, I am starting to feel the symptoms. VERY sore boobs, so tired, and even a little bit of taste/smell sensitivity. Nothing too crazy though. We are telling my parents tonight!

BFP 13DPO..... clomid

Well hello everybody today i got my bfp this morning after tryin for over 4 years, start clomid 2 round got a bfp then it end up being a ectopic, that was in oct/nov now my 2nd round of clomid with a bfp hoping baby made it to the right spot this time doc app on the 17..... me and hubby r so happy, but dont want to tell my family until i know for sure the bean stick. lol

I'M STILL IN SHOCK!!!

I'm sorry for the long story, but I wanted to give you some back round about me. I'm 29 and DH is 33 and this is our first. when we decided to try I was going on 27 and had been on BC for two years and I thought it was time. So I stopped in Feb and I got my period in FEB and that was the end of that, months go by and no period and we thought we were pregnant come to find out I was low progesterone, not a lot for them to worry but enough to stop my period and the only thing they wanted to do was put me on another BC which I refused because I never in all my life had an issue with my periods, till I got of BC this time. I was scared that if I got on another one and took it how they wanted and when it was time for us to try again I would have the same issue. So I did my research and found vitex which helps boost progesterone naturally so I figured why not. I took it for 1 1/2 months I got my period, a positive opk, and BFP. I was so excited when I got the BFP, but it was not to be. I had spotting the whole time, I found out I was pregnant on the weekend so there was nothing I could do but wait. Mon came and I called and they brought me in the office right away and I found out it was an ectopic and I had to get rid of the baby, it was the hardest thing I had to do. Now for the "GREAT" news, me and hubby had been trying for months and we had tired everything and I mean everything, pillows, pineapple core, preseed, different positions, drugs everything and nothing worked. so this month I decided to go to the doctor and see what he can do for me. He took my blood and had me planned for an HSG. I was lucky that I was in the beginning of my cycle that I was able to get everything done that I needed. When it came to get the HSG done I wasn't able to get because the stupid nurse scheduled me for the wrong test and forgot to tell me not to have sex, so there want that. Then my clear blue digital monitor started to act up. it wasn't reading sticks and giving me error messages and that never ever happened and I have used for months now, so because of it being stupid I had 19 high days!!! yes I said 19, I figured it was out this month I was like whelp, I guess I didn't ovulate this month and it's ok I have a plan and I'm cool, but like they say everything happens for a reason right. so I knew AF was supposed to happen on the 13th or 14th and I hoped neither cause I had made plans for me and the hubby and she stayed away lol. So on the 14th I woke up feeling really sick and I decided what the hell i'll take a test and I got a faint line, I was wait a minute so I grabbed another test and used the same cup of urine and tested again and I got another faint line. I was in complete shock so I decided to get an frer and test again in the morning and I got another faint line. I called my doctor to schedule a blood test to confirm and I have that this Friday. Since Sun I have been in such shock and such happiness that I have no idea what to do. I'm so sorry for the long story, but I always told myself that when it was my turn to post on here I would try to be detailed like other stories I read and try to give hope. I cant even tell you ladies how many dpo I am because I didn't track no other way then the monitor. My symptoms so far are nausea, dizziness, and sensitive smells. the nausea and dizziness comes in waves, one minute I would be ok and then oh oh oh..lol. Good luck to all the ladies out there believe me it will happen when everything is going wrong lol

BFP-9dpo!!!

Hello ladies, I just got my BFP!!! I have been on this site for numbers of time and promise to post my own story to cheer and encourage others. We used OPK and pressed for the first time and I have to say they helped since we been trying for about a year! I don't really have many symptoms at all. But I had a stomach flu on Sunday(Super Bowl), thought something with the food but my BF said he thinks I'm pregnant and he told me couple times this month that I look pregnant! Will call the doctor on Tuesday for a blood test! Hopefully this little one sticks with us. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Lesbian BFP

This was my wife's and my second month TTC and we got our BFP at 11dpo/CD31. I feel like we have been TTC for three years since we found our sperm donor that long ago but didn't actually start inseminations until 2 months ago. For other lesbian couples who read this page and want the low-down on known donor at-home insemination with fresh (not frozen) sperm, here's what worked for us! We inseminated on Cycle Days 13, 15, 16, 18, and 19 with 24-48 hours between each one. I ovulated on CD19 (later than I thought I would) and had some spotting that day. I had EWCM on CD 18 and 19 positive OPK on CD19, and ferning salvia and CD 18 and 19. (We used a little microscope used for putting a drop of your spit and looking at it - if it looks like nothing you're not fertile, if it is making a ferning pattern you are fertile. It was great because I could test unlimited times with the one thing unlike OPKs.) This month we added in using PreSeed. My wife put some in me and we'd let it warm up to body temp for 5 minutes, then do the insemination. Our donor made his deposit into a sterile plastic cup we had bought online and had put between my boobs to warm up first. His wife (our best friend, 5 month prego!) would immediately bring the cup in to my wife (keeping it body temp between her boobs on the walk between rooms) and I'd already have my pants off and butt propped up on a couple of pillows. My wife used a sterile plastic syringe (bought in the same insemination kit online) to suck up the semen and then would feel for my cervix with one hand's fingers and put in the syringe with the other hand. (Sorry to be graphic but this is what I wished I had known that is so hard to find!) She would get the syringe close to the cervix but not directly on it and SLOWLY push it out as the nurse midwife had shown us how to do in a preconception appointment, kind of aiming to coat the cervix. I'd lay there for 15+ minutes and try to have an orgasm. Then she'd put in a soft cup (same kit again) and I'd get up and dressed. This was all done in the spare bedroom of our donor's apartment. (They live 2 hours away so we drive to them instead of them coming to us at our home. Sometimes we slept over, sometimes made the drive up and back in a night. Exhausting!) I left the cup in overnight each time. This month I also upped my acupuncture appointments from once a week to twice a week and my acupuncturist used extra moxa. I never did BBT. I drank both FertiliTea and red raspberry leaf tea this month and didn't last month. I have been having one cup of coffee per day and taking a prenatal vitamin for 3 months (and no smoking or drinking). I also had the worst obsessing freaking out TWW our first month and this time was so much more relaxed. (I was positive I was pregnant last month and didn't think I was this month.) I used the Kindara app the first month and then this month also used Ovia and Glow. All three gave me different predictions with the same data so it helped me not to rely on one app's guess too much but also get a good sense of the range of fertile days and the range of when the peak day might be coming. Also different from last month is that we always waited at least 24 hours between inseminations (last time we did one at night, sleep over, and one in the morning before we left for work, leaving less than 12 hours in between). At the insemination on CD18 this month I told my wife I had a feeling we had just conceived. Symptoms: Nothing out of the ordinary. Sore boobs, less so than for my typical PMS. Really little bit of nausea with breakfast on CD 10 and 11. White creamy CM and feeling bloated the last several days. No spotting since ovulation. 9dpo: Negative FRER with FMU 11dpo: I thought I had line eyes! It was so so faint (FRER) that I threw it out and told my wife it was negative, which I thought it was. (I fished it back out the next day and we saw there actually is kinda a vvvvvvfl.) 12dpo: Positive FRER!!! Faint second line with FMU. My wife casually told me she saw a faint line but she was confused because she had been seeing my faint line OPKs where a faint second line is a negative and the darkness of the line actually matters. I was like UM NO A LINE IS A LINE but kind of didn't believe it either. Took a ClearBlue digital in the afternoon that said Not Pregnant. Took two cheapo pink dye sticks in the evening that also had faint second lines (one barely visible like 11dpo FRER, one clear). I'd usually start spotting before my period around this point in my cycle. 13dpo: Peed on three brands of stick with FMU and all BFP! We called the closest people who knew we were TTC to tell them that day. The donor's first words were "I did it!" LOL 14dpo: Ran out of FRER but took the two cheapo sticks with FMU and both BFP. Darker second line each of the 4 days in a row. No AF! Hoping it sticks.

Unexpected but very welcome BFP!

I want to share my BFP story as visiting these boards is what's kept me sane these last few months! I can't quite believe it....After swearing I was pregnant 3 months ago (our first month of TTC) here I am today with a totally unexpected BFP!! We followed the SMEP plan, used pre-seed and CB advanced digital OPKs. Missionary position only, and I stayed lying down for 15 mins after BD'ing. I read 'Making Babies' and 'Taking Charge Of Your Fertility' which I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone TTC. It only took 1 month after making the suggested changes, using pre-seed and OPKs to get my BFP! I basically had no symptoms at all, and had spotting on day 26 which I thought was AF, but was only a few drops, so I assume this was late-ish implantation bleeding. I also had a BBT drop on day 26 which made me think for sure I wasn't pregnant, but it shot back up today, the day I got my BFP (day 28/DPO 14) - the day of my missed period. I've had some mild cramping and 'pulling' in the abdomen, but I thought these were just signs AF was coming, but apparently not! I have a history of hormonal issues, adrenal fatigue and really bad PMS, so anyone out there with these issues, please have hope!! Wishing you all baby dust!

BFP @ 13dpo w/lupus, endometrosis, and unexplained 2ndary infertility-cycle 28

Hello Everyone. I Have been reading these posts since 2005 and they have helped me get through so many dark days. This story may be long. It was 2 years in the making. In Nov 2014 I married my high school sweetheart. We have 5 children together. I stopped using the rhythm method immediately afterwards and thought if God wants me to have another baby, I will fall preg on my own. In July of 2015 I had a 5 week miscarriage. It broke my heart. I began to want another baby that summer and began ttcing. Fast forward to Jan 2016. I got another bfp that turned out to be a chemical because AF showed right at 13dpo. Cd1 was Jan 9th. After 4 cycles of unprescribed clomid (oops) I began trying something more natural to conceive. I took black cohosh, evening primrose oil, vitex 500mg, prenatals, b6, and baby aspirin. The vitex made me O early. I usually O after cd 16. This month I O'd on cd11! After O I stopped taking evening primrose oil and black cohosh. I started noticing weird symptoms right away. Jan 9-cd 1 AF Jan 19-cd 10 Pos OPK-cp high wet and open-cm watery no ewcm-used preseed BD Jan 20-cd 11 serious O cramps from the left side, cp still high soft open BD jan 21-cd 12-1dpo noticed continued o pain jan 22-cd 13-2dpo same as yest Jan 23-cd 14-3dpo same jan 24-cd 15-4dpo same jan 25-cd 16-5dpo breast hurting, hi cp, thicker cm and more than usual jan 26-cd 17-6dpo same jan 27-cd 18-7dpo noticed darker veins on breasts and white glue like cm jan 28-cd 19-8dpo bfn had a huge fight with DH, very emotional. Dont think this is my month jan 29-cd 20-9dpo no test today, vivid dreams, very wet during bd?, slept 12 hours, emotional, bloated more clumpy cm jan 30-cd 21-10dpo bfn same as yesterday but me and dh noticed a weird smell to my cm. Like I smell the hormones in it. Jan 31-cd 22-11dpo bfn feeling very sad about prev losses. Gave up hope. Had a spiritual experience. After dreaming I was preg and died from the crossfire in a drive by shooting, I woke up and went to check on my children. While checking to make sure the front door was locked, I felt a hand grab mines. A long skinny adult hand that was cool to the touch. I ran to turn on the light and nobody was in the room with me. I was the only person awake in my home... Feb 1-cd 23-12dpo-bfn (possibly a squinter) on frer. began to get AF cramps, temp dropped, backache, headache,cried myself to sleep. Feb 2-cd 24-13dpo-woke to tons of drool on my pillow(did when I was preg). Im bloated, tired, crampy, back aching, and tearful. My breast are swollen and so is my belly. I can barely button my jeans. I was convinced that AF will be here today. After scouring the internet for bfp stories after 12dpo, I got the courage to take the last frer in the box. BFP!!!!!! Glory to my Heavenly Father who answered my prayers! I am due 10/12/2016 and I'm praying for a full term pregnancy and healthy baby! Baby #6! Bring it on!

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...
