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 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!

BFP with Spotting

My husband and I just got our very first BFP after trying for two months using Preseed(only used preseed on second month). We were also told to have DH to start eating strawberries......I wasn't sure either, but I think it helped!

I'm not sure of all the right days b/c I had a hard time figuring out my day of ovulation, so we BD every other day and then every day for about 6 days in a row when my cervix was high and soft. 4 of those days we used preseed.
CD20 -CD23 Had really bad cramps
CD22-23 Spotted on 2 days week before af was due
CD18-present--bb's were super sore and swollen
CD27- took 2 hpt's both +
CD28-confirmed BFP

Thanks for all the help and advice!!!!!

BFP on our 12th month Anniv TTC

Hi I cant believe i can finally tell you about this. I am 28 and have been on the pill for 11 years with no breaks so I thought it might be difficult to concieve. Myself and Hubbie have been trying since august 06 and went through many ups and downs, trying to time it, trying to read the signs.My cycles were ranging from 45 days to 60 days so I was prescribed Clomid after hubbie had normal results on sperm test and I had all clear from HSG. Eventually I got my BFP! exactly to the day 12 months down the line on our wedding anniversary toO, can you believe it!

Here goes;
1-6DPO NOTHING, normally get boob pain but had absolutely nothing, thought that was a positive sign.
6dpo- now sore boobs at the sides mainly nipples look swollen.
7dpo- really gassy, very smelly (sorry tmi)
8dpo- couldnt resist did ovulation test as i know you can detect hcg with them, got a strong result but not a positive.
9dpo -Gums bled when i brushed them in am only, boobs still sore, white heads on chin in am.
10dpo- did another ovulation test very strong result even darker than the other day, did another one 7 hours later even darker almost positive!!!!
11dpo- Couldnt wait any longer bought First response 2 pack test did it with first morning urine i had saved in a glass (have chucked glass out) got BFP in 10 seconds, ran round house screamed , phoned hubbie told him, screamed again.
12dpo - Did another test positive again, did digital so i could see the word, said pregnant in 15 seconds!!!!!!!! WE HAVE FINALLY DONE IT.

Feeling fine now but bloated cant wait until i have actually missed my period on sunday think it will finally feel real then. By the way I used preseed this cycle, have used it twice before but this time we baby danced day before ov, and day after. We usually missed day after in previous cycles.

BFP with Preseed while Nursing

I wanted to send your my TTC story and symptoms because I found these really helpful.
We have been TTC #2 for 3 months. I am still nursing DD once a day and I think it was affecting my CM. This month I took EPO from CD1-CD11, B-6 all cycle, and we tried pre-seed. I think the Pre-seed is what did it because I have had little or no EWCM in previous months. Also drank some green tea, about 1 cup per day. I ovulated late this cycle and we tried "one more time" and it appears to be the one that stuck. My sister got her BFP yesterday and we are due one day apart!!

I didn't have too many symptoms but here they are:
CD 19-26 lots of creamy, sticky CM
CD 26-29 BBs feeling very heavy and tingly, they hurt with DD, I think because I am still nursing they just felt full of milk, which they haven't in a long time. Also, very crampy like AF was on her way
CD 29 tested and thought I saw something very very faint
CD30--12 DPO BFP!!!!!!

BFP with Preseed (after Miscarriage)

BFP after Miscarriage

I found out about my very first pg on May 1, 2007; however, it ended in miscarriage on June 15. My husband and I were devastated because were TTC for 2 years. I was 11 weeks along, but the the baby stopped growing at 9 weeks and 4 days. I was devastated, but my doctor told me I could start TTC again after one normal cycle which would supposedly occur within two months after the D&C. Well, I had a normal cycle 30 days later and felt ready TTC again. DH and I just decided to BD every other day after the last day of AF. I believe I o'd around day 13 because I started to get slight abdominal pain and very abundant ewcm. Here are my symptoms:

1 dpo- +OPK and peak reading on fertility monitor. Abundant ecwm. BD'd 2x  that day.
2 dpo- still +OPK and peak reading on monitor. BD again.
3-4 dpo- just fatigue, not much cm.
5 dpo- strange dream about adopting Britney Spears babies (LOL) and then  becoming pg.
6-8 dpo- extreme fatigue, lots of white clumpy cm, hot and sweaty!
7-9 dpo- lots of creamy white cm, fatigue, temps above 99 (cover line is  97.9).
10 dpo- I have a over a hundred cheapy sticks from the last time so I decide to test and see the faintest BFP.
11 dpo- I caved in and bought a clearblue digital and after a minute it came up positive!
12 dpo- nausea in sleep, heavy lotiony cm, about 4 more BFPs on internet  cheapies.
13 dpo- vomitted while brushing teeth, sleepy, and overjoyed.

What I did differently this month:

Prayed a lot to Saint Gerard- as recommended by a friend. He is the patron  saint of maternity!

Ate only healthy foods- lots of fruits and veggies, no salt, sugar, or  preservatives. Lots of water!

Stayed stress free, even after the loss.

Continued taking Primacare One prenatal vitamins.

Used Pre Seed as lubrication after the first few days of BDing.

Drank lots of green tea.

Didn't go too crazy with temping until I started to physically feel hot.

I hope this little seed sticks around! Baby dust to all! :)


BFP with Clomid, Preseed & Meditation

Its been a very long road but I finally have my BFP! My husband and I have been TTC for 2 years and 4 months. Your website has been a source of sound advice and inspiration! I have previously tried clomid and accupunture without success. I read the Harvard Med School Book "Six Steps to Increased Fertility" and was very impressed by the rates of pregnancy achieved through meditation classes. Starting in April, I took an 8 wk mindfulness meditation class which helped significantly with my stress level. We decided to take a 3 month hiatus from my job as a physician and try Clomid again before moving on to see REI in October. If I had not been reading TWW I would not have tested as early as I did, which allowed me to start eating the best possible diet as soon as I knew I was pregnant!

This is what I did differently:

--Meditated and Prayed Daily
--Temped (first time ever)
--Clomid 100mg Days 3-7
--Drank Iced Green Tea D1 -D15
--No caffeine except green tea since D4
--Preseed (first cycle trying this!)
--No robitussin, just drank water until urine was clear
--BD daily from day 9 through positive OPK (D15) and for 3 days after
--Reflexology and massage D17 and D25

Early Pregnancy Symptoms:
--- D14 EWCM and Cramping
--D15 positive OPK, severe cramping
--D18 mild gassy abdominal cramping
--D19 gassy cramping, vomited x 1
--D26 (10 DPO) Spotting (light brown mucus), vomited x 1, lower abdomen hurst with laughing/stretching
--D27 Spotting (very light). +HPT (answer)
--D28 Blood BHCG 132
D29 on, increasing bloating, gas, constipation, vomiting in afternoon on some days.


BFP after 5 yrs - Preseed Works!

I am still in shock! My DH and I have been trying for over 5 years. After many rounds of Clomid, sperm testing, HSG ect, we got our BFP yesterday. We finally sought help from a RE in February after realizing that my gyno was a lost cause. However, they found a cyst on my right ovary on my first ultrasound. They recommended we wait a month and see if it corrected itself. March u/s..there it was and we had to wait yet another month. Next month same thing.. Wait, wait wait.. Well, I have a CBE monitor that I decided to use on the months I was waiting. NEVER had a peak day on the thing. Then BAM, April 25th peak on CD 16. We used preseed and bd'd like bunnies. I haven't had any symptoms.still don't really. I only tested to make myself know it was on to another month of trying. But as soon as I poas those lines came up immediately! I called my DH and started screaming it's pink, it's pink! I have never ever been pregnant before, so this is a brand new experience for me. The few "symptoms" I had/have were:

O day---nothing


2dpo---breast slightly sore

3dpo thru10dpo----breasts very sore


12dpo----stuffy nose

13dpo----cramping BFP!!!!!!!!!

14dpo-----scratchy throat, cramping, lunch did not settle with me...

Had my HCG levels drawn today and they were: 146!!!!!!!!!!!!

BFP Thanks to Preseed

Just wanted to share my BFP story with you! We just decided a month ago to try for #2.  I decided to purchase PreSeed, since I hadn't know of it while trying for our first, but had heard good things about it. Our first took us about 6 months or so to get pregnant.  But we just found out that we are pregnant after our first cycle TTC #2, and I'm convinced that the PreSeed made so much of the difference! Just wanted to share how great of a product it is!

I am now 14 DPO, and my symptoms were as follows:

1-7 DPO: Very sore breasts; after that, just slightly sore
7 DPO: Right side cramping near right ovary
10-14 DPO: Slight tightening in middle of uterus, not like AF cramps, but more like tugging
All of 2WW: More cm than usual, and more yellowish than normal

BFP with Preseed

Wow I can't believe I finally get to post here. I finally got my BFP after 11 months of TTC. I am 36 years of age and this will be my first. I used preseed the last 2 cycles and I got my first ever BFP this 4/26 I am so excited. I really believe that Preseed was the biggest help. Got my BFP at 12DPO. I am so excited I have been testing everyday. LOL

1. Slight cramping
2. Hungry
3. Extremely tired
4. Sore boobs
5. Dry eyes
6. Bloating
7. pimples (not normal for me)
8. Metal mouth
9. Stuffy nose
I am now 4 weeks and 4 days yahoo. Sticky dust.

BFP with Preseed and AF cramps

Hi, I am so excited about posting my tww symptoms. This website was such a life saver during my twws and I have loved reading all the symptoms. One thing I must say, is that I convinced myself that I had more PG symptoms on the months that I wasn't PG than I actually had this month. One month I actually convinced myself I had morning sickness! I also read that pineapple helps implantation and I ate so much of it I gave myself ulcers. Anyway ...

0 - I tried using an OPK last month and never detected a surge, and just found them really hard to use (and hard to hold on that long without needing to pee or drink water) so abandoned them this month, so I only think I know when I o'd based on an internet calendar.
1 dpo to 7 dpo - sore bbs, slight cramping, slight nausea (v brief and sporadic), slight headache - all normal post o symptoms for me, nothing unusual.
8dpo - all the usual feelings but I also got a metallic taste in my mouth, like I was sucking on a coin, only not as strong (how do I know that!? - lol). I went crazy on the internet googling that because it had never happened before.
9dpo - nothing, metal taste is gone.
10dpo - metal taste is back but it is now more of a soapy taste rather than a metal taste.
11dpo - cracked and did an hpt in the morning even though I swore I wouldn't. It was BFN but then a + line developed after the 10 minute mark (I would guess at about 12-13 mins). DH could see the line too. I spent the WHOLE day at work reading about evaporation lines on the internet and feeling quietly confident and then v nervous all at once. Made poor DH analyse it for hours at dinner that night and couldn't wait for it to be morning again so I could test again - tragic.
12 dpo - DH woke at 4am to go to the toilet and woke me so I needed to go as well so did the HPT (a bit blurry eyed at 4am!) BFP!!!!! and I read it within the timeframe etc so it was all above board. Poor DH I was in the bathroom for ages because the line was quite faint and I didn't know if I was seeing things. He came in and confirmed there was indeed a line. In the afternoon, felt strongly like AF was on her way. Could not stop checking it was such the same feeling.
13 dpo - (today). BFP this morning again with a darker line!!!!!! It is Sunday today so I can't make an appointment for a blood test until tomorrow morning. I feel pretty confident though since that line got darker over night. AF is officially due tomorrow.
I used First Response early detection tests.

This was our 4th cycle ttc #1. I am 30. DH is 31. We struggled with the BD on command and found it very unromantic. The worst sex we have ever had during these past 4 months!! However, the BIG difference this time was Preseed which we used for the first time, and I can't help but think was the thing that did the trick.

Good luck and baby dust to all XX

BFP with Preseed!

This was my 2nd cycle ttc #1, but 1st month using Preseed. I O'd on CD19, and BD'd on CD: 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22 and elevated my hips with 2 pillows and stayed like that for at least 2 hours - sometimes I didn't move at all over night. Not sure whether it was the Preseed as this was also the first month using OPK's and I discovered i'm a late ovulator so the first month we BD'd like crazy but must have stopped too soon. Preseed definately felt good though so would definately use it again.

1dpo - nothing
2dpo - creamy cm
3dpo - creamy cm, very yellow pee
4dpo - creamy cm, gums bled when brushed
5dpo - creamy cm, mild headaches on and off throughout day, felt quite irritable
6dpo - creamy cm, very mild ache in ovaries area, BFN (what was I thinking testing so early)
7dpo - Slight twinges in ovaries area, itchy legs
8dpo - a dull ache in ovaries area, not like AF, very irritable in evening positive AF is on her way. Bad day at work, v hungry, back pain
9dpo - mild cramps, watery cm, BFN
10dpo - AF due today but hasnât arrived, watery/creamy cm BFN
11dpo - temp high in morning, few sharp twinges, watery/creamy cm, heavy, bloated feeling, got a cold, dizziness in eve, staying up all night to watch Oscars, still no AF
12dpo - heavy bloated feeling, watery/creamy cm
13dpo - creamy cm, BFN, dizziness, back ache
14dpo - creamy cm, bloated, dizziness, legs ache, cramps, BFP!!!!!! v faint line. Am so thrilled
