nexplanon birth control fail bfp

I'm posting this here because like the ones reading this I searched endlessly about getting pregnant on nexplanon. Was told it was impossible was laughed at by a doctor mind you. I have no idea when I ovulated but this is what I do know. Dec 15th we bd Dec 17th had spotting (right on time to think it was af) Dec 24th spotted again Dec 25th- Jan 5th had typical pregnancy symptoms but I'm breastfeeding as well as nexplanon causes these symptoms. Jan 7th I took a hpt frer early morning it was neg. Later at around 3pm i took another frer it took 5 minutes to show a faint line took another at 8pm after 5 hour hold a little darker but not much. I took 2 more on the 8th both faint right away. I called the doctor on the 7th and he laughed at me saying it was impossible. On the 9th test was barely visible and on the 10th digital said no. It's been confirmed that I most likely having a chemical but urine test at hospital was positive we just wait it out I suppose. No bleeding yet as of tonight some cramping all weekend. This is the test that took 5 minutes to show.

BFP after 4 MC

For almost three years now, I have been stalking this site. Over and over again, I have gotten ready to create an account and tell all of you my wonderful news. Four times. And well, I have four angel babies. But...there is always a rainbow after the worst storms! I got my BFP so early this time (not normal for me, lol) at barely 10dpo. I'll try to give you ladies a breakdown of events, lol, but bear with me a bit. After so many losses I had kind of given up hope, so other than knowing approximately when I was supposed to ovulate and when my period was due, I didn't really keep track of dates. I kind of had to scramble a bit after I got that BFP! So, ovulation occurred around the 27th of November, I say around because I had two separate times, three days apart, with ovulation pain. (On opposite sides too!) One was on the 24th, the other on the 27th. This month was kind of busy around my house with Thanksgiving and a big family, so we only BD'd three times...somehow they all happened to be during the week of ovulation! Again, we weren't actually trying anymore, so I was pretty relaxed about it. Within a few days of the second ovulation (if that's what it was) I was sick. As in, dizzy, nauseous, peeing every five seconds, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, and oh my did I have a dilly of a UTI! And it didn't let up. At all. By the time I took a pee test, I had been sick for a week and a half. In fact, one of the reasons I POAS was that I almost blacked out while driving down our driveway. I actually had to stop and put the truck in park and sit for almost ten minutes. Still don't know why either. :( Anyway, at about 8 DPO, I spotted pink with my FMU. It didn't happen again that day, but I thought for sure AF was early. I put on a pad and just waited, lol. It happened again the next morning. One smear of pink with my first pee of the day. BUT, no AF showed. The next day...nothing. The morning after that, almost 48 hours later, again, a smear of pink with my first pee. That was the same morning I took a pee test. My period NEVER starts like that! And it was a Big Fat Positive before I was even done peeing! I kind of didn't believe it, so I POAS again the next day. BFP again. Instantly. Since then, I had it confirmed at the ER. I went in for the UTI because I was in constant pain when I peed. Oddly enough, they confirmed the PG, but said I didn't have a UTI! (And I still have random intense pain when I pee...go figure) Today I am 5w4d...not very far along, but boy howdy do I feel further along than that. All of the morning sickness, food aversions and everything else have continued and not even come close to letting up! I also have had my first Dr. visit...apparently they think I'm either a month further along than I thought (which means all of my dates are completely wrong and I haven't got a clue when I conceived) or it might be twins! They do run in the family so I guess its possible. But for all of you who have angel babies...it's possible!

6 yrs TTC

Still in disbelief... I've been staking this site for a couple years now and I can't believe that I'm sharing my story now. I had come to terms with possibly not being a mom. So here you go for all you other "stalkers"! =) CD1 - 12 Normal CD13 Noticed a lot of cm CD14 - 15 BD CD17 - 21 Spotting. It was red, but light and it did get in my undies. Never had this mid-cycle before. I really didn't think it was implantation due to the timing, but I took ov and preg tests every day starting on CD18. CD23 Started showing signs of AF (face breakout, bbs hurting) CD25 BFN CD26 BFN CD27 BFP w/FMU!!! Very light 2nd line on Wondfu. My DH thought I was crazy. But I know what I see! Stopped at Walgreens and got a digital and it said YES! DH and I have been TTC since 2009. I used to be on clomid a couple years ago, and I've done all the tracking stuff. But for the past year or so, we just did it when we felt like it. I use iPeriod for tracking stuff. No idea when I ov'd...

My BFP Journey with ISCI – it’s taken a while!

My BFP Journey – it’s taken a while! So some background: Me – 30 and never been pregnant (not even a smidge) Husband – 32 and no children. Good quality sperm but normal form was 2% rather than 4% My husband and I started trying in June 2013. By October 2014, nothing had happened and I had turned into a bit of a wreck so I went to see a gynaecologist privately with work insurance. (I had been to the GP in August but they just did blood tests and told me to come back in 6 months). He instantly said my periods weren’t right, they have always been heavy and varied in length. He suspected endo, something I was also worried about. I had a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy in November 2014. Lots of scarring found including a big ol’ cyst on one of my ovaries. He cleared it all up and gave me 4 months to conceive. 4 months came and went and I still wasn’t pregnant so went back to the GP and got referred on the NHS back to the same gynaecologist. Wasn’t really sure what to expect but he instantly referred me for ivf, a bit of a surprise! By the time I had more blood tests (hormones fine) and waited for my appointment, I started my first ivf cycle in June 2015. After 3 weeks sniffing the hormones, the cycle had to be cancelled due to fluid in the uterus, it had to be removed with a hysteroscopy. Disappointing but I was going on holiday in August and the time scales were getting stressful so we decided to start again in September. Had the op beginning of September where he found no fluid (wtf). Ivf cycle 2 started up again in September. I was put on a short protocol and didn’t respond amazingly to the drugs. I only had 4-5 follicles developing and when I had my egg retrieval on 12 October, they only got 2 embryos. Both embryo’s fertilised and I had two grade 1 embryos put back in on a 3 day transfer. We had the option of putting one in the freezer but we decided to go for ‘all or nothing’! So my Two Week Wait went like this: 1dp3dt - nothing 2dp3dt - nothing 3dp3dt – I woke up in the morning having the most INTENSE orgasm dream of my life. I have had these before but never with the severity. As soon as I woke it turned into extremely painful low uterine cramps, it lasted about half an hour and only shifted with 2 bowel movements. I thought there is no way embryos could stick to my uterine wall after that. Although I wasn’t told not to have orgasm’s if you read online, it is a big no no to have any contractions. Has anyone else had this?! 4dp3dt - nothing 5dp3dt - a few jabby pains that got my attention but after egg retrieval (HOW PAINFUL IS THAT?!) everything was sore and bloated. 6dp3dt – Same, a few jabby pains 7dp3dt - Nothing 8dp3dt - BFN in the morning. I start spotting brown and presume it’s the beginning of my period as that is how it always starts. 9dp3dt – Heavier brown spotting. Sore boobs but I have had that since transfer, put it down to progesterone. I’m at a wedding and think fuck it so have a few drinks and shots. 10dp3dt – Spotting lighter and still brown but now have cramps that are EXACTLY the same as the day before my period would be. Seriously glum now and tell my husband, parents and sister that the whole things is over. Put a tampon in and go to bed expecting AF in the morning. Don’t bother doing progesterone suppositories. 11dp3dt – Go to the shop and buy a pregnancy test first thing just so I can get it out the way. Husband wishes me good luck and I tell him I don’t need good luck because ‘we all know what the result will be’. To my amazement, I get a BFP within seconds and within 2 minutes it is darker than the control line!!! Aches and cramps continue throughout the day. Phone the nurse at the hospital because I am now nervous about the spotting and she says to have ‘cautious optimism’ but it is very good news! 12dp3dt – spotting and aching have subsided. Boobs are still sore but nipples aren’t anymore. Things I have learnt - After ttc for 2.5 years, I thought I would instantly know that I was pregnant and something would be different. There was absolutely nothing different to my BFP and the build up to my normal period. I can’t believe how similar the cramps and aches were. Basically, you know nothing until you get a bfp! - Don’t worry about having an orgasm! The uterine contractions I had after my dream were so strong, I honestly think if an embryo is going to stick it will - I did the 5 day pineapple thing and ate brazil nuts every day but that was it. - I really enjoyed doing the Zita West ivf positive visualisation CD. I tried to do it most days and always felt really good afterwards. UPDATE: I have just had my scan at 7 weeks 4 days and we saw a bean with a very strong heartbeat! It has been an incredibly hard wait but such a wonderful reward. I have had quite strong cramps the past 2 weeks but it’s obviously everything moving around.

Positive after having twins via IVF

My twin daughters are 2 years old, we have not been on BC since and finally got a positive. We weren't tryinv until the girls were one so it took us over a year. Some months we missed our window and some months we really tried hard. I was starting to think we were not going to conceive again and that I still had infertility. So happy we are going to have baby number three!! I tracked my symptoms just incase I wasn't pregnant so I could compare next month and avoid getting my hopes up. I am also a regular spotter before my period and I still spotted this month. CD 7 bedded CD 10 bedded CD 13 bedded, i was extremely nauseous during this ovulation, like never before. So strange, maybe I was dropping a big ole egg. Headaches, bloated, just had a carsick feeling. CD14 post OPK still nauseous didn't want to have sex that night. cD15 bedded that morning to hit the window for sure. 5dPO start feeling pms bloating, headaches, acne, boobs sore 6dPO irritable, headaches 7DPO started spotting I felt like I was maybe out, but I had read on herethat some people spot and are still pregnant. Left ovary pain, moody, irritable( typical) 8DPO-10PO sore boobs and spotting. Neg test, irritable, depressed. 11dPO no more spotting neg test. Here is where things changed up on me. I was seriously fatigued this day, and emotional. I'm a bitch and cranky during pms but I dont get weapy. I got emotional from a picture. I also temeber thinking omg this pms is so bad, let it end already!!!! 12DPO boobs feel very swollen no spotting, odd so I tested and got a line! So happy!! Also my mother died suddenly in May, I prayed so hard to her and God this month, I wanted to create life after death.

Unexpected BFP After Period?

Hey all, DH and I have been TTC since June of this year. This cycle we BD'd every other day starting the day after my period ended, and used pressed and I drank raspberry leaf tea every night. I was sure we got it right this cycle, but got my period about 5 days earlier than normal. Yesterday, I thought I was CD 11 expecting to Ovulate CD 13, but I had some spotting the last couple days so I tested and I got a BFP! Here is the break down: DPO 1-5: No Symptoms DPO 5 Onwards: Very sore boobs (common for me after O) DPO 9-14: pulling and cramping in pelvis, hips feeling heavy. DPO 13-14: Super nauseous, pounding headache for 48 hours, starving, thought I had the flu. Tested and BFN DPO 15: Period, sore boob pain vanished. I stopped paying attention to symptoms after I got my period. There is no way we could have gotten pregnant any other time, because I haven't ovulated yet since last month. I don't understand the period unless it was (heavy?) spotting, but it seems unusual. In addition, last month I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and was put on a dose of synthroid, which I originally thought caused my early period, and the subsequent spotting the last few days. Does anyone else have a weird experience like this? Of course, we will be making a doctors appointment to see! It goes without saying we are feeling so blessed and giving thanks to God for everything.

BFP 21 DPO after 4 day bleed

I can't really believe I got a BFP and I am posting here. I got what I thought was my AF 7 days ago. I spotted on 9 and 10 DPO and then started spotting again 1 day late at 16 DPO. The spotting got heavier and I bled for 2 days and then spotted for another day. I figured I was out but my boobs have been hurting bad and my hips have really been bothering me so I went to the store and bought a few cheap tests. I took the first one and a faint line came up in the 10 minutes. It was there but very faint. I got excited so I went and bought a box of FRER and took one with a two hour hold. It took about 5 minutes but a faint line popped up and got slightly darker at the 10 minute mark. I just wanted to post this so people know that you are not necessarily out if you bleed. If you feel off test! This will be baby #4 and I am overjoyed!

BFP after 4 CP's and 15 months, first time Clomid success, spotting

I started TTC'ing in August 2014. I have regular cycles and really didn't think it would take long to get pregnant (I was 31 and healthy). In September 2014 I tried opk's and to my surprise, I didn't get a positive opk until CD 20, which is crazy considering my 28ish day cycles. I then started temping and this confirmed late ovulation and short LP. The doctor dismissed my concerns and said to stop stressing. Fast forward a while and I had 3 confirmed CP's and one suspected. My doctor agreed to refer me to a fertility clinic where they did a full workup. Everything looked fine except slightly high TSH (5-6). I started on Synthroid and Progesterone supps during the luteal phase. Almost right away, I started ovulating earlier which I thought was great. But I then started having a lot of spotting around ovulation (I could feel ovulation for sure!) and during my LP. I tried not to worry about it but it was hard. After 5 cycles of nothing happening since the last CP, my doctor ordered a HSG and gave me a prescription for Clomid (50mg). I decided to go against the doctors orders to get the HSG before trying Clomid. I o'ed on CD 13! And sure enough, BFP first try on Clomid at 9DPO on Cycle 15! No one knows why the Clomid worked. I had a lot of spotting again ... 3DPO until 9DPO and then again a few times in the following weeks. Mostly brown and pink. Beta's were 10DPO 18, 13DPO 64, 15 DPO 208, 22DPO 5300, 29 DPO 23000, 36 DPO 48300 (it starts to slow at this point) My first symptoms were irritability and constipation. The constipation and bloating were pretty bad for 3 weeks (and I never have this issue). Breasts are sore. Right at the 6 week mark hit, the nausea started and hasn't let up since. I am now 7 weeks 3 days and saw the little bean yesterday. Heartbeat was 155bpm. Still nervous but it's looking good so far. I've never made it past 5 weeks before. My advice would be to trust your gut. If you think something seems off, keep pestering your doctor. I'm so glad I didn't wait until the 1 year mark.
