BFP clear blue digital

Hi All!

I’ve been on this site for over a year now and I’m happy to finally post my BFP journey by DPO. 

Bit of background info - I’m 29, I have 2 beautiful children (DS12&DD9), I had a cp August 2016 and I was diagnosed with Chronic Migraines, June of this year. I have had constant headaches during the 2WW but haven’t documented them as I wouldn’t know better. This was a surprise and we weren’t proactively trying but if it happens it happens.


CD10 - DTD pm, cm - creamy

CD11 - EWCM, I can feel my boobs. Pm gassy - fuller/bloated feeling, pain when I  cough

Ovulation Day CD12 - Light cramping, EWCM, ovulation pain left side. BBT 35.7 

1DPO - Mid left cramps, bad gas- lower tummy very tight making it hurt when I did a wee wee. backaches. Creamy cm. BBT 36.1

2DPO - ovulation pain left side?! Bad gas with pain. tingly nipples, shooting pain in left breast more than once in afternoon which continued to midnight. pain in left midsection maybe gas related. I need to pee every 1 hour since waking up to lunchtime. body aching. small amount of ewcm not very stretchy, dry cm after 8pm. Hot flushes in the afternoon and noticing I’m thirsty. Craved watermelon? I don’t really like this! Fatigue and nausea. BBT 36.1

3DPO - Left side twinges /pains. Tired. Gassy and bloated with aches. Creamy cm. Heightened sense of smell. My partner can’t seem to do anything right today and into the coming week! So grumpy lol BTW this isn’t me. BBT 36.2

4DPO - light cramps and extreme gas pain. I’m thinking WTH is going on with me?! I have never been like this in my life. My partner offered to swap butts so he could get rid of my gas for me lol so sweet. BBT 36.2

5DPO - Gas aches and pains. Thirsty. BBT 36.5

6DPO - Boobs slightly tender on and off. Very gassy. One sharp cramp this morning and Back aches after breakfast.. I never eat breakfast but I was sick hungry. BBT 36.5 My guess now is this was the day of implantation.

7DPO - Gas pain and food cravings. I wanted a chocolate cake and nothing else haha BBT 36.1

8DPO - very tired. Between not being able to sleep from my headaches to Broken sleep. It’s been and ugly week. Don’t feel the slightest bit pregnant.

9DPO - Sick hungry to loss of appetite. BBT 36.2

10DPO - Thirsty, Sick hungry, Loss of appetite. Watery CM. BBT 36.3

11DPO - Period pain burning, Loss of appetite.

So I’m sitting on the couch while my partner is burping and carrying on and I thought to myself, im not the gassy one in the relationship it’s him and maybe it’s a pregnancy symptom? Having multiple pregnancies I haven’t had any of my usual 2WW symptoms. I had one test, a confirm HPT and got a very very faint line. I was in shock but because the line was so faint I’m thinking well is it or isn’t it? BBT 36.2

12DPO - I find this funny that the moment I take FMU HPT, and get a second faint line that I then get every symptom I normally would. 

Confirm HPT barely there pink line FRER definitely positive .

Sore boobs - bright blue veins. Light headed, Nauseous, Wanted to vomit after dinner, Hot flushes all day, Period pain on and off /gas, Twinges left side of stomach, Poking sensation by belly button left side, BBT 36.4

13DPO - BBT 36.5. Sharp stabbing in left ovary region throughout the day. Pulling sensations in uterus? Boobs are really sore. Nauseous / light headed, Tired/exhausted. Emotional at a wedding ring? (lady taking bloods) it was pretty! Lol Hot flushes, Burning / period sensation, Gas      HPT confirm faint pink positive. FRER BFP

Drs appointment also had Blood test today. I’ll post my Beta HCG results for you ladies on Monday. I also recommend not using the Confirm HPT as they not very sensitive. FRER for the win

14DPO - Clear Blue digital not FMU pregnant 1-2weeks, but I already know that only DTD once! Pulling sensations in stomach, Sharp shooting sensations left side of abdomin, Very sore boobs and sick hungry.

Still early days for me but fingers crossed this one sticks. I hope this helps someone :) Baby dust to all









Hpt crazy!

Feeling unsatisfied with the pink shadow I had this morning I did some research on the brand. There is a lot of negative feedback, the main reason being it’s not as sensitive as FRER and also control lines not appearing. 

I thought well if I’m getting something on that then a FRER should pick it up and put my mind at ease. naturally driving myself crazy i went to the chemist. I’m CD24 with 27 day cycles on average. 

Its not the boldest of pink lines but more visible than the test I took with my FMU. I now have a spare 4 tests to make sure the line gets darker.

I hope this is the month I get a sticky bean. I sincerely hope many of you get your BFPs this month with me! xx

The joys of peeing on a stick!

After last nights super super squinter, I told myself I’d wait a couple of days before retesting but who am I kidding? Lol

I‘m on 12DPO and took an HPT with FMU and after a minute appeared a line and by the 3rd minute the line had colour. Annnnd the best part is I didn’t have to squint! It’s very very faint but i know it’s there. Well, i hope so haha

let me know what you think xx

A squinter, can you see a line?

after today’s faulty test I decided to do another hpt, make that 2 (Peeing on a stick is fun!).

The first came out negative but the one before bed came up with a line that’s almost impossible to see. I don’t believe it’s an evap as I read the test well within the time frame.

Im excited that this is may be the month I get my BFP however I will retest and hope the line gets darker.

Baby dust to all xx


HPT has anyone had this before?

I’m 11DPO today and thought I’d do an HPT for the sake of doing an HPT and I have never seen this before! Yay for supermarket HPT brand Confirm. I took this pic 2-3 minutes after taking the test. Box says rresults as early as 1 minute -.-

Preparing for the worst

CD28 and i am now officially late! Yay

after 2 positives (9DPO + 11DPO) followed by 2 negative (12DPO + 13DPO) pregnancy tests, I'm now preparing for bad news.

my temps are still above my cover line but now I'm having really bad lower back pain. The only time I remember feeling any pain like this was 11years ago, which was when I was in premature labour with my DS now aged 10.

I had my bloods done this morning as directed by my doctor and Im hoping to have results tomorrow afternoon.

With the amount of cm, i can't help but think its AF and I brace myself every time I go to the bathroom.

it was very awkward at work today, I had hot flashes throughout and at one stage, in front my boss, he commented that I looked green and said it looks like I'm going to pass out! I actually felt like I could have at that moment.

Hopefully I get good news tomorrow. I am very nervous but like I mentioned, I'm preparing for the worst.


Disheartened! Opinions and relative experiences please!

so far my journey has been a rollercoaster ride. Im now CD27, my cycles range from 24-27 days. BBT before O is 35.7 degrees.

9DPO faint BFP - BBT 36.2, nausea & sore breasts

10DPO BFN - BBT 36.5, vomiting, bright veins on sore boobs & extreme fatigue

11DPO darker faint BFP - BBT 36.4, watery cm (feels like I'm aroused or wetting myself), bright veins on breasts, nausea and lower back ache, heightened sense of smell and hot flashes

12DPO BFN - BBT 36.7, watery cm, sore breasts with bright veins, morning nausea, period pain morning and night with lower back pain. Sharp stab left ovary area pain lasted 5 seconds, heightened sense of smell and Hot Flashes throughout the day.

13DPO BFN with what looks like an EVAP. - BBT 36.3

i still have all the symptoms since CD17 approx 2DPO. im starting to think I'm going through a chemical pregnancy.

if AF isn't here by tomorrow I have an appointment to get bloods done.

has anyone been through this scenario and had a healthy pregnancy? Please share.

ladies be aware of the possible heartache of testing early :(

good luck all xx

CD24 10DPO

This morning I woke up all smiles. Took my temp and has risen .2 degrees to 36.4 and that was an hour earlier than when I usually test. 

I waved goodbye to hubby and started feeling faint followed by gagging! 

I thought to myself right today I'm going to get that strong positive...... It was a BFN! 

Felt like I could have been sick a couple of times before heading off to work but was ok. 

I arrive at work and what do you know?! I want to chuck, to the point where I almost actually did and my eyes were watery. 

This happened twice more before being told to go home! Apparently I was off colour as well. I proceeded to leave work before I found myself rushing/not rushing to the toilet. Yes it happened. The taste of acid is disgusting (Sorry TMI)! 

At home now, my boobs are very sore, veins are brighter than ever (everywhere) and I am probably going to fall asleep writing this entry. 

I'm puzzled about my negative result as all the symptoms I have is telling me I am pregnant. 

Guess time will tell, AF due Sunday 

Hope it's not a false positive!

hi all!

ive been TTC for the past 7 months. i have 27 day cycles and at the moment im on CD23.

On the 15th of this month (CD14 day of ovulation) I woke up with tingly sore boobs and said out loud to myself randomly "I'm pregnant".... Who does that? Haha 

For the past 9 days I've had sore boobs on and off. It's a sensation like they are being pricked with lots of needles. I have been very tired and going to bed at 8pm (2 hours earlier than usual), and I feel nauseous every time I eat.

Out of curiosity I went to the chemist and bought a 3 pack of FRER. I got home and tested with my FMU and got a super faint positive within the recommended reading time frame. 

i quickly took a picture of it, blew it up and asked my son how many lines are in the picture. He confirmed there were 2 and said "we have the same eyes" lol. 

It is still early days and I'm hoping this month I'll get my sticky bean. I will test again with FMU.
