Pregnant With a Polup

Oh my goodness what a hard journey ttc is! We started trying for our second July 2011. Our first took 4 months. As the year went on I tried fertility yoga, acupuncture and went to a fertility clinic. They found a polup and I was booked for surgery Aug 2012. A year of tears and prayers- it was so hard to have no control! June 2012 we had sex twice during the two weeks but I didn't temp, look at the calendar or plan because the surgery was booked. July 7th was the date I was due but no period. I had no real symptoms as every month I had every symptom listed so looking for it - hurt. By the 9th I got blood when I wiped - even though I expected it - cried and cried. Put in a tampon and over the next day got only a tiny bit of blood. Bought a test on the 11th and got a positive - tried another and again positive. Happy does not described how we felt. Baby boy due in March. Such a journey - I wish everyone so much luck!! Surgery got cancelled :)

BFP!!!!... Few Symptoms

I found this board when we were TTC with DS a little less than two years ago and it was addicting and awesome to read everyone's TWW stories. I'm back again, just got a BFP this morning! This is our third month TTC but the first two I was super sick with a cold and was living on Nyquil 24/7. This month I tried not to think about TTC and keep busy. My last AF was 9/27 and my cycle is regular at 30 days. We BD almost every other day from the 2nd till 14th... and then again on the 19th. I was thinking I was a late O girl so we had one more shot. I thought we were out this month and had OPK and Pre-Seed in my Amazon shopping cart for next month but no need!!

Symptoms- Last pregnancy I found out I was PG because my BBs were SO incredibly sore.... so this is what I was expecting but have had NO BBS soreness at ALL! The week before my BFP I noticed I couldn't finish a glass of wine for the life of me. I would have a sip each night and that's all.... which is so unlike myself. Also, I was DONE at 7pm and in bed two days in a row. Two days before missing AF I had brown spotting and I thought for sure AF was on her way... I NEVER spot so when she didn't show up I figured something was up.

We also used Pre-Seed because it's amazing and I think it works amazing... we used it on the first PG and got a BFP the first month. Also, I started taking my gummy prenatals two months ago to get myself ready.

Other than that, relax, enjoy BD and TTC and it WILL happen to all of you!! ~*~*~baby dust to all~*~*~*

OMG Still in Shock!

I have a little girl turning 2 in 4 days! We were not even trying but one night after sex I was online looking up stuff about ovulation. Come to find out after using an ovulation calculator I was ovulating that night! So I began stalking this site just waiting to take a test, not really thinking anything would happen. I began taking tests @ 5dpo! Don't try it. Big waste of money! This morning I got up and used my trusty frer and after 2 min it came out bfp but extremely faint. So of course I did not believe it. This evening I took another one and another bfp! Btw, I used the rite aid brand e r that come in the pink box thinking they were fr knock offs. They are not @ 8 dpo I took them and got blue evaps within the time frame and I know that bc the next day I took a frer and bfn! So steer clear ladies!
1-3 dpo breast tenderness
4 dpo twinges in uterus and nausea and gassy in the morning
5 dpo nausea and gassy in the morning
6 dpo fatigue and breast tenderness
7 dpo nothing!
8 dpo pink spotting-implantation? Yay I had that with my last so I basically knew! breast tenderness nausea and fatigue
9 dpo breast tenderness, nausea, fatigue, burning sensation in head? Head aches!!! Horrible
10 dpo breast tenderness, fatigue, nausea morning only, and head aches, then BFP!!
Good luck ladies. Stickiest baby dust. Prayers and thank you for the wonderful site to read and get me through the tww!!

BFP 3 Months After Stopping BCP

I feel so blessed to be pregnant already as I had my reservations about our chances. Me and DH are both overweight and I have heard this can cause problems.

BFP 12dpo 8 Month Trying! 1st Pregnancy!

I can't believe I'm finally posting on here! I've been stalking this site for months as I'm sure many of you are; don't give up on your BFP!

My husband and I have been TTC for 8 months. If I didn't get my BFP this month I was going to go get an HSG test to see if my tubes were all clear (because my blood test showed ovulation and his sperm analysis turned out great.)

My cycles are 26-28 Days this month my OPK turned positive on cycle day 12. Let me just say I hate how pre af symptoms are the same as ttw symptoms. I always spot about a week before period light brownish pinkish discharge. This month totally thought I was getting af even told husband last night I was sad and scared for the HSG test. He told me don't be sad until you actually get your period.

CD 8, 10, 12, 13,14,16 BD
CD12- positive OPK
DPO 1-6- no symptoms
DPO 7- increased CM brown Discharge
DPO 8- really tired fell asleep during Dexter at 8PM one of my favorite shows
DPO 9- Reddish/Pinkish spot only when wiped in the morning (Implantation perhaps? But not uncommon so now I'm bummed out)
DPO 10- Nothing
DPO 11- light brown discharge/backache feel like af is on her way
DPO 12- slight positive on ept non digital test so I asked my husband to go get digital not telling him about the slight positive. Go to take a bath and take digital test and before I know it I'm running out of the bathroom to tell husband. (he thought I saw a spider)

Calling doctor tomorrow to schedule blood test.

I've tried everything from bbt charting, grapefruit juice, Pre-Seed, etc....

This month I stuck with
*Laying down after sex
*One a day prenatals with DHA
*Husband has been taking flaxseed oil

I pray that this pregnancy sticks. I've always wanted to be a mother, and my due date is on my parents anniversary!!! July 1st!

BFP 15 DPO, 8 Months TTC

I am so happy to announce my bfp! After 8 months ttc!!!
Here are my symptoms:

2-4 dpo had a horrible sinus cold, soooo sick.
5-10 dpo sore boobs but that's usual for me before af
10-11 dpo bfn, cramping was sooo bad, shooting down through my legs.
12-13 dpo, brown smearing not enough for a panty liner but usual pms symptoms so I gave up and bought maxi pads, because all my symptoms disappeared.
14 dpo huh? Sore boobs are back? Strange...and no af??
15 dpo I caved and did a test at 1 pm, it was BFP!!!! My cervix is also high and dry, and my runny nose never went away. Don't give up on bfns at 11 dpo. Thank you to god, my husband, and to all you ladies who post on the tww. Love you all.

Still in Shock - BFP!

First a little background... DH and I are both 23, married 1 year, I stopped the bcp in May and my cycles were all over the place. June was 27 days, July was 50 days (we thought I was pregnant this month, but af finally showed after 50 days) August was 35 days. This was our first month really trying. Because my cycles have been out of whack since stopping the bcp I didn't know when I would ovulate, so DH and I bd'd close to every other day from cd 3-25. I am guessing I ovulated around cd 19 based on cramping. I had negative OPK on cd 10, cd 13 (2), cd 15, cd 16. I don't know if I wasn't using them right or at the correct time, but I never got a positive OPK.

Dpo 1-3 nothing noticeable
Dpo 4-12 sore bbs, off and on cramping
Dpo 10-12 bright red spotting, like pin pricks only on toilet paper, would not have noticed if I hadn't been looking
Dpo 10- now cold symptoms, could be allergy related????
Dpo 14- missed period day 1, DH wanted me to wait to test
Dpo 15 (today) BFP!!!!!! With fmu on frer. Dark line showed up quick. Was prepared for BFN, when showed up BFP I screamed and DH woke up, it was 6:30 am and we couldn't go back to sleep!!!

Here's hoping for a happy and healthy 9 months. Baby dust to all.

BFP After 11 Months With No Symptoms For This Cronic Spotter

I got my BFP after 11 months of TTC! I have somewhat short cycles, I ovulate on CD 16 or 17 then get AF on CD 26-28 (only 10 days some months!) In addition to short LP, I also have spotting each month anywhere from a week to 2 days before AF. We only BD once during my fertile period because of my husband traveling for work.

CD 15: BD
CD 16 (I didn't use OPKs this month so I am guessing based on ECWM): O Day
9 DPO: Spotting, always brown, never red, but quite a bit of it (it looked the EXACT same as my spotting always looks before my AF). Enough for a pantyliner not a tampon. It continued from 9 DPO until 13 DPO.
11 DPO: Cramping at night, thought AF was coming that evening
12 DPO: Light cramping all day, not as bad as my AF cramps usually are but thought it was definitely coming. (Felt like how my cramping felt when I was taking B50 complex). Husband said I should take a test and I didn't want to at first cause I was sure it would be negative. I took the test waited a minute and looked, it was negative. He looked at it a minute later and thought he saw a faint line which I was shocked! It was a BFP!!! Very faint line on First Response so we went to store and bought a CB digital that said Pregnant!

I had really had no symptoms AT ALL except for the two things I get every month: sore BBs and spotting. Each month we tried I had all these phantom symptoms, this was the one month I was positive I wasn't pregnant. I am actually 12 weeks along now and still haven't had many symptoms.

So I have been a chronic worrier and this month I decided to give it all up to God. Over the past several months I tried several tactics from taking B50 complex to lengthen my cycles on my own (did it for 2 months and it just made my periods weird), to eating pineapples after O day, I used OPK kits several times and even borrowed my friends fertility monitor for a few months, and BD every day during my fertile period and still nothing! This was going to be my last shot before calling my doctor to get checked out, and I decided to give everything up and just try not to stress about it. The hardest part was figuring out how to actually relax about everything. I decided to start doing yoga for fertility (I just bought a video and did it at home), I got a 60 minute massage at 2 DPO to relax me, but the biggest change I made was I prayed A LOT. For patience and for the ability to accept Gods will for me. I truly think that made a big difference. I still thought about it everyday, just kept reminding myself that it was out of my control and it would happen when it was meant to happen.

I am praying for everyone struggling with TTC and wish you all the best.

BFP Through Prayers and IUI Helped Too

BFP after one year of trying by prayer.

Hello everyone,
I never thought a day would come that I'd get the chance to post my pregnancy success stories, but I always said to myself when it happens, I will def post my experience. I am 28 years old and dh is 33 years old. We have been married for a year and together for 8 years. During the course of our relationship I never got pregnant, but those years we weren't even trying but I was not on birth control or anything so I knew something was wrong.. it started getting really frustrating when we got married and 9months of marriage we tried (naturally but it never happened ) so we decided to see our RE. We did a bunch of overwhelming tests later we found out that I wasn't ovulating regularly and dh had low sperm count 11 million. We believed in God. And the doctor started me with clomid 50 mg (July 2012) with timed intercourse. Only had 1 follicle and it didn't work. The second cycle, August 2012, we tried clomid 50 mg and iui (only had one follicle) and the test came back negative... RE decided to move on to injectables because clomid made me very dry (tmi) and my lining was very thin he said. So September 2012 I started injectable (bravelle 75 iu , 3-7 and i had nine follicles 5 on the right 16.16.20,13.14and 4 on the left 16,15,16,16 and then later started vaginal progesterone. We did and it work! I can tell you things we did different this month, it's not about injectables or follicle, I believe it's God (not to lessen your hope on medication but to heighten your hope in God) no matter what your situation might be, no matter how long you have tried, one day will be one day. We prayed quite a lot. We were running out of money for fertility treatments so we wanted it so bad. I can tell you that prayers and trust in God did it.. Sarah in the bible was 70 yrs old.. she stopped ovulating, no more menstrual period, no western medicine intervention.. she gave up trying to conceive for years because it didn't happen (Genensis 18 ). An angel of God prophecies to her and her husband (Abraham) that by this time next year she would give birth.. Sarah said it's impossible, she is old and she is no longer fertile.. but God did it. She got pregnant and had a healthy baby. I don't know what your situation is, or how bad RE has told you your ovaries, tubes, etc are.. Trust God, pray and believe in God.. there is nothing God cannot do.. God of Sarah is alive and God of Hannah. If you have not given your life to God please do, if you haven't submitted your self to Jesus, please do.. challenge him on this matter and let God prove to you he does exist even through Christ Jesus... Stay blessed... below are my symptoms...

1dpo - cramps
2 dpo - cramps
3 dpo - started feeling pain under my belly button/ sore breast
5dpo-7dpo - sore breast/ uterus still hurts
8dpo - light headed (only when I get up to suddenly), heavy breast, fatigue
9dpo-11dpo - uterus pain continued breast is very sore
12dpo - started to feel a lot of cramps... af on her way?
13dpo - more cramps exactly like period was coming, bloated, frequent urination through the night
14dpo - one of the scariest day of it all ( when pushed vaginal progesterone) brown light dirt was on the stick (sorry tmi)
15dpo - out of breath, dizzy, diarrhea, sore stomach, uterus unbearable, stupid af playing pranks, mucus with brown dirt
16dpo - went for my blood and beta was 965 .. finally took 3 urine test at home and bfp (whoaaaaaaaaaa, thank you lord)

If you feel cramps around 12dpo, don't be discouraged, doesn't mean AF will come, I thought I was getting my period and witch AF didn't show up.

I am now pregnant.. Can't wait for the ultrasound!

This Doesn't Feel Real!

Hi all,

As is the tradition of this site, I wanted to share my experience just in case it helps anyone else at all. I had a Mirena removed on 30th July (had it in for three years) and then spent the next few weeks 'enjoying' a variety of symptoms while everything worked its way out of my system! My boobs were so sore for weeks, had a random three day bleed two days after having the Mirena out, then nothing, then two days of spotting a couple of weeks later, then nothing.... and nothing... was wondering whether I was pregnant then but kinda knew I wasn't - in a weird sort of way. Anyway, AF finally came on 10th September and I felt SO MUCH BETTER!! In all honestly, I have been fully preparing myself for it taking at least three months to get any sign of a BFP as I've spent quite a bit of time on this site and know how lengthy and frustrating it can be. So I was viewing this cycle as a practice run. We worked out dates and did the deed on 20/9, 22/9, 24/9, 26/9 and then on the 29/9 and 30/9 but those two were just for fun as I figured the window would have passed at that point. We also flew to Germany on 28th Sept till 2nd Oct for some friends' wedding (including free bar - which was taken full advantage of given that I was viewing this month as a practice run!). We went away again on 8th - 10th 0ct and I had a few glasses of wine over the weekend too. I sound like an old soak! However, at all other times I cut back on alcohol and caffeine, and was exercising a lot (bike, gym, swimming, walking etc).

Anyway - the symptoms I've had are as follows:

DPO 1-5 Sore boobs, like OW! Not uncommon for me around AF time though and was still thinking I may be out of sync since the Mirena. Also generally aware of my uterus area.
DPO 6-10 Started to feel like I was getting ill, boobs still mega sore and also was a total ratbag with zero patience for anything or anyone! However, put that down to feeling under the weather. Was singing in a small gig on the Friday night and all I wanted to do was go home to bed as I felt so grotty. The next day I came down with more of a cold. A lot of CM.
DPO 10+ Cold progressed and my chest felt really tight - however, I didn't take any meds as something just told me not to. Was very tired and had an afternoon snooze one day (normally I can't sleep during the day) and went out like a light for a good couple of hours. Had some tummy troubles, if you catch my drift. And was still an absolute horror of a ratbag. Was seriously on the brink of caving my other half's head in for crunching poppadoms too loudly!! Still lots of CM
DPO 13 All of a sudden my boobs felt very firm on that day - so much so that I got my other half to check them as well (a tough job, but someone had to do it!) and he said they felt extra firm. Could really feel my uterus as well and still can now. Still plenty of CM.
DPO 15 was yesterday. My boyfriend is going out tonight so I wanted to take a test last night so we could be together if it was good news - which is was! Clear Blue Digital came up with the BFP - hurrah! Couldn't believe it - we sat there for a while totally stunned. Feeling VERY guilty about the boozing, but none shall pass my lips from this point onwards.

Rang up and booked my docs appointment for next week and it felt so strange as it hasn't sunk in yet really. I'm 34 and my OH is 27. I have a 13 year old daughter so can't really compare symptoms from last time as it was a) so long ago and b) a 'surprise' so I wasn't looking out for things back then. I know things can change in a heartbeat and it's very early days but all being well, in 9 months time I'll get to meet my second kid :)

Good luck to all of you, I look forward to reading your success stories in the not-too-distant future!
