Miracle BFP...!

I have been a bit of a lurker for a while, reading many of the stories on here and have been touched by them. Since I just got my BFP this morning, which was really surprising, I thought I would share my story, in hopes that those who have been TTC will not lose their hope! DH and I had been NTNP/TTC for a little over a year. My cycles are generally about 32 days, but they are a bit irregular. About 6 months ago, I went through a cycle where I seriously "felt pregnant" and was late for about a week, but DH was not quite convinced and ended up proving me wrong when I got a BFN and AF came. This cycle, I tried not to obsess about my symptoms and was beginning to think AF would come. But red flags went up when I began spotting on CD37 which then continued on CD39 and into the middle of the night before stopping. Even the cm pretty much dried up. I was starting to believe that I ovulated REALLY late. AF was supposed to come around 10/22 or so. I had read somewhere it's best to test two weeks after the missed period here in Korea, so I waited until then. It was a bit hard at times, but I tried to keep my mind distracted. We dtd on CD20 and CD28. Didn't track closely, so here's a list of what I felt at times: indigestion, tiredness, mild cramping, breast tenderness and soreness, nip sensitivity, some random pain and discomfort around the pelvic bone, into the upper right leg, some pulling behind my belly button just a couple times. Most of the time it was incredibly similar to what I have normally felt before my period. I had decided to take a test last Monday, but DH told me I should wait until Friday, which is tomorrow. However, yesterday he told me to try testing this morning, so I used my FMU. I used the PIAC method and I was barely taking the tester out when the test line had a strong streak within the first 5 to 10 seconds. I have since felt more pregnant than ever and my symptoms have become stronger. Even cm picked up a bit again. Could it be due to the fact I know I'm pregnant for sure? At least I wasn't imagining it this time. Anyway, the reason I call this a miracle BFP is because we were told by a couple doctors that it would be incredibly difficult to conceive naturally or with insemination and were strongly recommended to use IVF. Yet even then the possibility was still not too high. I had wanted to get pregnant naturally and chose to just leave it to God/Jesus to do the impossible, since nothing is impossible for Him. We were shocked this morning and are still in a small state of disbelief, but are very grateful for this blessing. Especially since we haven't been TTC very long, compared to some women on here. Long story short, even if the doctors tell you there's not much of a chance to get pregnant, don't stop believing and praying! Miracles DO happen!! For those who have been waiting longer, don't give up hope and just pray, and wait for His timing! The grace and power of God is truly amazing. All glory to Him. He is in control! Here's to hoping this sticks! Note: Ignore the strand of hair in the pic, haha.

BFP with timed intercourse and thin uterine lining after miscarriages and Asherman's Syndrome diagnosis

I've waited almost 5 months to share my BFP story because I wanted to make sure I didn't miscarry again (that happened to me on this site). I am now 6 months pregnant. My goal in sharing this story is to give hope to other people who have had similar experiences with ovulation issues (possible PCOS diagnosis), miscarriage, Asherman's syndrome and multiples. It's too complicated to give all of the details (yes, I used pre-seed, ovulation predictor kits, every kind of pregnancy test, charted my temperature, etc.), but here's a summary: November 2013 - started trying to conceive naturally with my husband, but noticed I wasn't getting my period or ovulating February 2014 - took clomid prescribed by OB March 2014 - first BFP on first round of clomid April 2014 - found out that it was a blighted ovum at a 7 week ultrasound and had an uncomplicated D&C at 8 weeks June 2014 through January 2015 - took clomid 6 more times total, noticed that my periods were extremely light and almost non-existent, complained multiple times to OB about my lack of period, but was told it was not an issue November 2014 - second BFP which turned out to be a chemical pregnancy (got my non-existent period about a week late) January 2015 - started seeing an REI for infertility work up, everything looked normal except for my uterine lining; on a sonohysterogram, the REI thought I had a polyp and scheduled a hysteroscopy to remove it February 2015 - diagnosed with moderate Asherman's Syndrome (aka intrauterine scarring) during the hysteroscopy; cause of Asherman's Syndrome was the D&C from the previous year (this is a rare complication from an early pregnancy D&C) March 2015 - second hysteroscopy to treat the scarring April 2015 - third hysteroscopy to check whether more scarring should be removed, was given the green light to try to conceive again after taking estrogen to build up my lining for another month May 2015 - induced period with progesterone, then used femara (aka letrozole) and follistim and an ovidrel trigger shot to try to conceive through timed intercourse; at the doctor's visit before taking the trigger shot I was told that there was very little chance of getting pregnant that cycle even though I had lots of mature follicles because my uterine lining was only measuring 3.1mm (and 5mm the following day - they made me check again) and that I would likely need another hysteroscopy; we did the trigger shot anyway and had timed intercourse 36 hours later... June 2015 - third BFP Details of third BFP: DPO 7 - breast tenderness DPO 10 - partial ovarian torsion (very painful), generally did not feel well DPO 11 (aka DPT 13) - BFP on my 35th birthday, pregnancy line was quite dark DPO 12 - extremely sore breasts, hurt to shower, this lasted on and off for several weeks DPO 13 - lots of spotting and cramping (this also lasted on and off for several weeks), serious paranoia about having another chemical pregnancy DPO 14 - HCG level (from blood test at doctor's office) was 576; upon reflection, this was probably the first indication that there were multiples DPO 16 - HCG level had more than doubled to 1,317 7 weeks - at the first ultrasound, I discovered there were 3 heartbeats; 2 of them were identical twins that would share a placenta but had separate sacs; I had a pretty significant bleed on and off for about 3 days right after the ultrasound and was again paranoid about miscarriage, but all 3 heartbeats were still there at subsequent doctor's visits 11 weeks - CVS testing of both placentas for genetic issues 13 weeks - multifetal pregnancy reduction of the identical twins based on decision that it would be too risky to carry all of them, I still think about them everyday Can't wait to meet my baby. Don't give up.

Miracles Come True (Beware: Implantation Bleeding Pics TMI)

Hello Ladies, Where do I start. Its been a very long two year wait has finally come to an end. Here is m story!! I hope this gives those out there like me some hope!! Me and my husband have been trying for two very long years. I was stuck in in denial hoping that each month would be my lucky month and that month came only after getting some much needed help. I saw my Infertility Specialist July 2015, where I was diagnosed with moderate to severe PCOS. I had an HSG where I was given a preliminary diagnosis of on blocked ovary on top of my PCOS :(. My hopes went down the drain but I never stopped believing in a miracle. After all tests were completed I was to schedule a follow up visit after three months from my first visit for my proper diagnosis and future treatment plan. I was however given Metformin and I was started at 1500, which helped me stay optimistic after researching success stories. So now I am one week away from my follow up visit, however with a wonderful surprise BFP. To make things extra special is that my last BFP which ended a chemical was from September 2014. I now how my official BFP from conception September 2015 which means I would be Due June 15, 2016. I already have a daughter born June 17, and one from June 28. This is going to make a great debate with choosing the birthday because I will end up having a c-section. Well I hope I did not overwhelm anyone. My symptoms: 09/29/2015 -1 DPO: BD just so I would not miss this month (Just in case ;) 09/29/2015 09/30/2015 Ovulation Day- BD again just so I would not miss this month (Just in case ;) 10/01/2015 1 DPO: Prepare for our family trip to Vegas 10/02/2015 2 DPO: Left for Vegas. Super Busy, long drive and getting everyone organized. 10/03/2015 3 DPO: Relaxed, had some drinks, took some naps, ate lots of snacks. 10/04/2015 4 DPO: Relaxed some more and time to come back. 10/05/2015 5 DPO: Super Tired, stayed in bed. 10/06/2015 6 DPO: Woke up with a really bad lower back ache. Called in sick to work. 10/07/2015 7 DPO: Woke up again with a really bad lower back ache. Called in sick to work. 10/08/2015 8 DPO: Went back to work. No symptoms. Super busy and tired. 10/09/2015 9 DPO: Spotted, and thought it was strange (Possibly Implantation Bleeding - See Picture) so I took a Wondfo OPK and HPT, and a very faint line appeared on the HPT. 10/10/2015 10 DPO: Spotted very lightly, and made the DH buy me FRERs. Took after noon and light BFP!!! DH and thought I was a chemical so I had a drink :( 10/11/2015 11 DPO: No Spotting Bought some DIGI's and also Positive. 10/12/2015 12 DPO: More positive pregnancy tests. No symptoms what so ever. 10/13/2015 13 DPO: Itty bitty, hardly visible spotting so I emailed my Endo, who advised me it is normal and ordered HCG Count, and a follow up in two days HCG count. Went in at lunch, and got an email with my lab results and HCG was 279 10/14/2015 14 DPO: No more spotting. Still worried, and tired. Still no symptoms. 10/15/2015 15 DPO: No spotting, went for follow up HCG count and thank GOD it doubled to 611. TODAY!!!! I am doing great. I get nausea very seldom, boobs are mildly soar, no cramps, just very mild, and by mild I mean super mild to almost non existent abdominal pressure. I am still a little worried, but I keep testing every day from my Wondfo HPT Pile so I am not spending more money. My three month follow up with my Endo is coming up so I will have an ultrasound and crossing my fingers I will get to see the baby and its heart beat. I will be 6 weeks 3 days on that day. Good luck to everyone and please don’t loose hope because I almost did but my prayers were answers. I wish you all luck. Also please not that I did research that PCOS increases your chances of not feeling any symptoms. I did not get into detail, but I felt some reassurance for my non-existent symptoms. How I got my BFP: BD -1 Ovulation BD Ovulation Day Used Pre-Seed and Conceive Plus Took Metformin for 2 months and a half at 1500 mg a day. Good Luck Ladies!!

BFP 10DPO * spotting for daysssss.

At 7dpo I was throwing up, sick all day. Thought I had a virus. At 8dpo, still neasua, started spotting. 9dpo, blue dye, bfn. Still spotting bad. I was convinced AF had come early. Still sick. 10dpo BFP. still bleeding, we won't use spotting anymore. Still bleeding. It's turned from red to brown. Cramping the whole week also. This is baby #2. With my first I spotted at Implantation also, but was never sick. I've been worried it was a CP from all of the bleeding, but tested again today and you can see a stronger BFP. Cramping and neasea today. Praying this baby holds on and the spotting stops! But I wanted to let everyone that says you can't be sick this early, and coming from a former believer myself that you can't be sick this early correction- sick, sick, sick sister over here.

hey, 4 ppl that voted I wasn't pregnant, this BFP is for you

3DPO cramping in my lower pelvis, actually told hubby it was painful 5DPO vivid dream I had a baby girl! 6DPO - one of my nails started peeling back, I immediately thought "I'm pregnant". My nails were strong, now they are brittle just like during pregnancy. 7DPO mood swing - no patience, same as previous pregnancies - I go from 0 to 100 in 3 seconds, versus normally a more patient self 8DPO I know it's too early, but at night I get a BFN. 9DPO I wake up with that familiar feeling of nausea that is telling me to get something to eat in my stomach.... also at times dizzy, and several times throughout the day EXTREME thirst, out of the norm. test in the evening, BFN. 9DPO - starting to get a sore throat like a cold. Lower immune system?? 10DPO, feel queasy/hungry, such a familiar feeling after having 3 babies in the last 4 years. I'm more sure than ever that I'm pregnant! Spells of being lightheaded. BFN this morning. AF should have appeared yesterday, no sign of it. 10DPO - morning: more sore throat. evening - heartburn!!!! also... this is a random thing...... for the last week I've been seeing things incorrectly. Like if something says "Man dies in fire" I'll think it said "Man lies interest" something just totally random. My husband had gas and it caused me to dry heave.. Also couldn't stand the smell of his beer breath 11DPO cried while watching a video of a teacher saving a student from choking.. slightly swollen labia, smelly urine 12DPO big morning sickness this morning. Aversion to different types of food. Daughter peed in her potty, as I was emptying it the smell made me dry heave. Very sick now with a head cold and phlegm. evening - very light pink spotting. 13DPO more morning sickness, coming in waves over me throughout the day. Ran out of pregnancy tests, can't test. Finally run out to the store and buy more, test in the evening... BFN. This is driving me nuts!!! This is now day 32 of my cycle with no period... normally I'm a 28 day girl... but my BD was on day 19 of my cycle, so technically we are only 13 days past that... it is so hard waiting!!! WDYT???? It's like, I KNOW I'm pregnant, and I'm pissed off that the tests are saying no still!!!!! 14DPO tested in the morning with another dollar store test, BFN. Crazy emotional - yelling at my hubby all morning. I finally realized that the dollar store brand I was buying was one I hadn't used before, and I realized I might have better luck with a more expensive test. So I drove to Shoppers and bought a first response test that shows pregnancy up to 5 days early..... and... ***DRUMROLL***** BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just upset that it took the tests so long. I've known since 6 days past BD.

Month 4... A cautious success!!!

After trying for 3 months, I decided this month I'd be more relaxed and just have sex whenever but I still had my plans. DH on the other hand, he decided he'd "try harder" and so we had sex a lot! I used Fertility Friend and this month, just like a previous month, it gave me a High for sex. I have 1 five year old and no history of m/c. Things I tried differently this month: Soy Isoflavones (SI) cd2-6 (80/80/120/120/160mg my attempt to produce a strong quality egg) Preseed (During every bd, mostly as lube, not in the tube) Instead Softcups (I used this during every bd, even when I wasnt fertile, just in case, most times I used a little bit of preseed in them) Selenium (100mg mostly a benefit for sperm, but heard it helps with implantation) Prenatal Gummies (previous months I just used multi-vitamins) Baby Aspirin (81mg every other day starting on 1DPO only until a few days after my bfp b/c I was spotting) Vitamin D3 (5000mg pill every other day) Things I always used: Calcium Magnesium Zinc (1 tablet every night) Temping/Fertility Friend OPKs (Wondfos and CB digi because I like to see the smiley face) Checking CP/CM I normally O between CD 13 and cd16, but around cd 11, I had no indication that O was coming, I was dry and was a little nervous thinking that the SI delayed my O. We'd already been going at it like rabbits and I wasnt sure we'd be able to take any more so I brought some Vit-D3 as I read that it can help with O. I started taking it that day, every other day and by CD 13 I had more CM and that night I had an almost positive OPK, on CD14 I had a very positive OPK CD 12 - BD, Dry CM CD 13 - BD, Wet CM, almost positive opk at night CD 14 - BD, EWCM, positive OPK all day. Initially FF designated this as my O day but later changed it to CD 15 at 4DPO CD 15 - O DAY... well Night (it always happen at night). No BD because we were a bit tired. Wet CM/EWCM, positive OPK during the day, negative at night (I always have a 36 hour surge). My cervix hasnt gotten soft for O since month 1. Temp increased slightly CD 16/1 DPO - Dry CM, Cramps, backache, Sore boobs, Temp increase above coverline 2-3DPO - Creamy CM. Cramps, backache, sore & bigger boobs, temp increased. Crosshairs on 3DPO 4DPO - Normal temp drop (not below coverline) 5DPO - Temp rise, Creamy CM, Cervix MMC, Sore Boobs, little cramps on right side 6DPO - HUGE temp drop, Creamy CM, Cervix LFC, almost at coverline 7DPO - Another HUGE temp increase, Creamy CM, Cramps mostly on right side, more sore boobs (mainly tingly, zinging on upper and sides of boobs) 8DPO - Sticky CM, Cramps on right side, tingly/zings on upper/sides of boobs 9DPO - Same as 8DPO. BUUUT couldnt resist the urge to POAS... Thought I had an evap in the morning. But was definitely a BFP at night on Wondfo. 10DPO - Creamy CM, cramps, sore boobs, another BFP on wondfo and FRER. BFN on $tree brands (VeriQuick & Assure) 11DPO - Told DH. He was excited. Creamy CM, cramps, boobs arent as sore and feel like they went back down in size like before AF, but definitely BFP!!! on Wondfo and FRER. BFN on $tree brands. I went to get a betas drawn. Noticed brown spotting when I wiped. 12DPO - Same as before but super light BFP on $tree brands. Got results with a BHCG level of THREE! WTH! I'm confused and the doc. Must be a chemical, I'm so devastated. More brown spotting when I wiped. Late at night had a small amount of dark red blood come out. I put on a pad because I'm fully expecting AF to come tonight. 13DPO - AF would typically arrive today but pad was dry. Confused b/c BFPs are getting darker on all brands. Get another beta done. Still brown spotting only when I wipe occasionally. Boobs are starting to get tingly on sides and top (so confused!) 14DPO - All tests are +++, even the CB Digi said Pregnant. Betas came back at a 13 (doc considers anything over 5 Pregnant! Doc wasnt concerned because my levels more than doubled and said that I'm just very early pregnant. I honestly think either something is off with whatever they use to test betas, I had a vanishing twin or something went fairly wrong during initial implantation. My boobs got suddenly got bigger again and are tingly on sides and top. NO SPOTTING TODAY! 15 - 17DPO - I'm hungry, tired, crampy and my tests have definitely gotten darker. NO MORE SPOTTING! It was a roller coaster and due to these ever progressing HPTs, we are not as concerned anymore.

Baby #3 (yikes!)

We tried for a few months, then thought maybe baby #3 just wasn't in the cards. Then, the month we weren't trying... 3 dpo normally my pms is already starting, but instead of having lower energy, irritability and sadness, I had tons of patience, lots of energy and woke up super smiley. 4 dpo a little bit fatigued, a little absent minded, mild cramps 6 dpo sinuses stuffy, so tired no amount of coffee is helping 7 dpo mild cramps, fleshy looking clot when I peed, acidic stomach, in good spirits 8 dpo crampy, little pressure 11 dpo cramps, gassy feeling, back ache, boobs burning 12 dpo think I implanted last night, because when I wiped I had a spot of blood. really wiped out all day. felt a little sick. BFN (in morning) 13 dpo Another BFN, went to bed at 7:30 with a fever of 99.7. Thought I was getting sick. 14 dpo Woke up and was still 99.1 and I just knew, so I peed in a cup then ran out and grabbed some more tests. Two Dollar Store test came back with faint positives. Ran back out and grabbed a First Response and EPT digitals. Two lines and a big fat PREGNANT. 15 dpo period was due, nada. I had just starting to accept our sweet little family of four would stay just that, four. Now there will be five of us (oldest is 5, next is 3 1/2, this little one will be due June 8). WOW. I spend SO MANY hours reading other peoples BFP stories looking for hope, I now hope reading this does the same for someone else!

BFP at CD51!

As my username suggests I am honestly in so much shock... I've been a stalker of this website for years but never actually thought I'd see the day I'd be writing a BFP post!! I still feel like im in a dream. We weren't TTC and I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries a few years ago so I'm not sure when I ovulated (I thought I knew and it was right when our protection failed but each day AF didn't show my app kept pushing my O day further and further out to the days we were BDing unprotected. I came off the pill 3 months ago and we weren't using condoms when I was on the pill and since I came off it we haven't been that strict on using them. We moreso weren't using them when I thought I had already O'd (although with PCOS I guess I couldn't really know for sure). I had less symptoms this month but they were all totally unexpected ones. We BD'd CD's 13, 22, 38, 34 and 35. CD22 was the only one with protection but the protection failed. CD24 and 25 - I had a small amount of brown/pink spotting in my underwear which was really unusual - my cycles are usually around 33 - 35 days. I thought something was up at this point and was driving myself nuts researching what it had meant for other women. CD25 and 26 - Lower back ache CD28 to 31 - Soooooo badly bloated!!! Bloating is really common for me but this was something else. I had to walk out of work and sit in my car for a bit with my stockings pulled away from my stomach because my bloating made them so unbelievably tight! Around CD40 we BD using protection and afterwards there was a bit of blood on the end of the condom. Other than that I've had slight AF cramps on and off and Ive been somewhat bloated 24/7 after the extreme bloating but it isn't painful. Oh and I didn't note down when this happened but weeks ago all my tops started feeling too tight in the bust area (Ive been the same bra size ever since I first started wearing bras so the feeling of growing there is definitely a foreign one to me!) but I haven't noticed it anymore recently. I had BFNs - CD31, D42, CD44 Then had booked in a doctors appointment just to see if I could get some answers on why I still had no AF on CD51, I thought I would find out I had cysts or something... Ive had probably 2 previous AF cycles in the CD50s years ago (Ive been on the pill in the years in between) It was the mid cycle bleeding that made me think this could be different, but after all the stark white BFNs I didn't think it would be pregnancy. I was shocked when I got my clear as day BFP at the doctors at 6.30pm on CD51! I haven't had sore BBS or any nausea or anything... nausea kicked in today (CD52) now that I know Im pregnant but I think that's all mind over matter now that I know. I also feel a bit of pressure really low down in my abdomen. According to the last menstrual period theory I was 7 weeks and 1 day when I got my BFP (yesterday) and Im booked in for an ultrasound on Monday. Really wanting to buy the pregnancy test that tells you how far along you are but I feel like im too scared to push my luck... like maybe if I test again bub wont be there anymore! Its all still sinking in I think. Its definitely good to be able to talk to you ladies though, my boyfriend wasn't all that thrilled to hear the news (he's 22 and Im 23) and I wont be telling anyone else until the 3 month mark.
