BFP Stories

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!

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

Symptoms:
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

best wishes everyone out there with ttc, hope you get your BFP soon

BFP with Preseed (and PCOS)

There's hope for those with infertility issues! I have PCOS and am taking Metformin. I was trying for two unsuccessful months on Clomid. Then, after a short anovulatory cycle (15 days!) with Clomid days 3-10 I think the Met started AF naturally. I Oed on CD17 and got lucky with a BFP! DH has low motility (male factor infertility) and we were told BDing wouldn't even work. Our IUI cycle was cancelled due to the Clomid not working and we already made a specialist appointment for considering IUI and then IVF. This cycle I had no EWCM and only one day of wet CM, so we used PreSeed. We kept thinking positive and tried our best. We are hoping for a sticky bean!

1 DPO: sore nipples, backache, creamy CM, low firm cervix

2 DPO: sore nips, fatigue, creamy CM

3 DPO: sore nips, headache, and cramps with creamy CM

4 DPO: sore nips, creamy CM, fatigue, and pimple in pantyline area (not usual)

5 DPO: sore nips, lots of creamy CM, backache, dehydrated feeling

6 DPO: sore nips, lotiony white creamy CM

7 DPO: no more sore nips, creamy CM and a tiny bit of super stretchy CM (never get this), dull ache in lower uterus/ovary area

8 DPO: headache, creamy CM, dull ache still

9 DPO: sore tongue (never happens!), strange dreams, creamy CM, slight temp dip on chart

10 DPO: sore tongue, strange dreams, backache, cramps, super light BFaintP on FRER

11 DPO: cramps, slightly darker BFaintP on internet cheapie and also was faint positive at doctor’s office, headache, nausea after dinner, fatigue hit me strong at night, creamy CM

12 DPO: headache, cramps, BFP on internet cheapie and FRER was a medium line, creamy CM, cramps, could hardly sleep last night, huge BBT temperature dip?!, lost appetite, fatigue

13 DPO: creamy CM, fatigue, cramps stronger at night, odd dreams, can’t sleep, temp went back up

14 DPO: dark HPT today PM. Backache, cramps, strange dreams and couldn’t sleep again, temps stayed put, no sore nips or boobs yet...

I decided I may not temp anymore since the dips worry me. The doctor wants me to take another beta at 15 DPO to check that my hormone’s doubled. Baby dust to you!

Got PG with Preseed the first month TTC!

We got PG our first month TTC. We used Preseed, I was drinking green tea and grapefruit juice and took B complex and B6. We BD'd 3 days in a row, skipped a day, then 4 days in a row and no bd on O day. I got 2 positive opk's and we dtd both of those days. I took another OPK the day after and it was definitely negative, so I knew I had definitely O'd based on that and my temps.

Symptoms - none really. No m/s, fatigue or sore boobs in 2ww. I didn't get any symptoms till around 7 weeks where I started having aversions to some foods and others just turned me off, but never had m/s. About 5 days before my bfp, i did notice after seeing pics that my face had become more round.

Preseed Success

Okay, here is a story for all the symptomless hopefuls out there!....We started TTC our second child in June. Although we had no luck the first two months, I had so many imaginary symptoms from reading other people's stories that I would have sworn I was truly prego. Mind over matter I guess. You can imagine what with my nausea and huge boobs (ha ha) the surprise and disappointment I had getting my period after both tries. I felt like the whole summer was a bust. Then I read about Preseed and figured hey I'll try just about anything that doesn't require much extra effort! I didn't want to get too obsessive, start charting and taking temps and using fertility monitors and all that. My firstborn was conceived in our first month of trying and I wanted it to be as fun and stress-free as that. But after a whole summer of imaginary symptoms I thought why not try this stuff.

Here's the kicker: this is the one month I've been walking around all week with period supplies, so convinced was I that I was in for hard time with AF soon. I have NO I repeat NO symptoms yet. I had tested about a week ago, of course way too early, so everything came up negative and I sort of gave up thinking about it, resigned to wait yet another few weeks before the BD marathon would start up again. Yesterday I was due for AF, hadn't seen anything all day so around dinner time last night I thought why not just pee on one of those Dollar Store HPT to get any unconscious hope that's delaying AF out of my mind. Seriously I was so shocked to see the two lines. I know we've been trying but of all the months I have NO symptoms I did not think this was it at all. I went to the doctor today and they confirmed it, I'm due in May!! :)

So just because you don't feel pregnant yet don't throw in the towel, I'm telling you hang in there I didn't think this was my time but apparently it was. Thank you Preseed! God bless!

Preseed worked for us!

I just thought that I would contribute my story. We were trying for 8 months for our second with no luck. Then I saw your website. I clicked on the stories about Preseed, and thought I will try it. Well I did and the first month we used it we got pregnant. I am now 5 weeks and feeling great. I am not one of those people who normally write but I know how frustrating it is to try and try to get pregnant and nothing works. I didnt take anything besides pre natal vitamins, so I know it was the Pre seed that made it happen. JUST TRY IT!! What do you have to lose?

We used Preseed everytime we BDed

This month had so many emotional ups and downs that I wasn't sure how we could make it work. It was the first month I actually temped everyday (we've been ttc since Sept 05) which I HIGHLY suggest to every woman. I also used ovulation kits. The past months I assumed the kits were just wrong because I never got a positive. I was also worried that I wasn't ovulating. It turns out I ovulated on day 20 of a 29-30 day cycle. I would have NEVER found that out if I didn't temp. We used Preseed every time we bd'd and we did that basically from day 14 to 21! I was exhausted! :) When I saw that my luteal phase was so short I went in to see a fertility specialist on day 21 and he put me on progesterone suppositories to lengthen my cycle. All I can say is that I thank God that I have been so proactive this month because it worked!

Here are my symptoms....

DPO 1 -9 virtually NO symptoms. My boobs had some twinges, but nothing major at all. I stayed calm because there were many other signs pointing to yes (including that my best friend dreamt that my baby was on the way).

DPO 10 -11 : I needed to take naps both days. Very tired and getting completely different cramps than I've ever had before. Some felt like period cramps and then others were shooting pains that went horizontally through my pelvis. There were a few that made me jump.

DPO - 12 - 14: Still tired and begin having very very light implantation spotting. Started out light brown and then just a few drops of more red blood. More boob twinges and (tmi) diarrhea. Very thirsty as well.

On DPO 14 (coincidentally Valentine's Day) I got my BFP in the morning!!! The BEST Valentine's Day gift ever!

This is the first month we used pre-seed and I think that really had a lot to do with our success. I saw a tiny bit of ewcm around day 16, but I ovulated on day 20. Honestly, every other month I had MANY more symptoms than I do now that I know I'm actually pregnant.

I suggest to every woman who wants to get pregnant soon to temp for even one month. It really is amazing what you can learn about your body AND you can have a baby as a present for all of your hard work!
