Number of months you were TTC: four
Describe BD frequency during that month: BD two days before O, then twice on O day and a couple of days after - it was the first cycle where we actually BD less and just did it when we felt like it rather than stressing about it.
What BD position did you use: boring old missionary
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): I was taking pre-natal vitamins, magnesium supplements, fish oil, having acupunture and Chinese herbal medicine and drinking 4 cups of camomile tea per day
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: can't honestly remember but I'd say not
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): tried to lie down for at least fifteen or so minutes but not always possible
Did you feel implantation (describe): not at all
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): yes, minimal pinkish brownish spotting when I checked internally - can't remember exact DPO but around 5 or 6
How many dpo till you first tested: I was convinced I wasn't pg that cycle so I didn't bother testing until 12 DPO and was shocked to get a pretty blazing test!
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: 12 DPO (first test I did)
What test gave you the first BFP: FRER
What was your first symptom: didn't think much of it at the time but I had a super veiny chest really early on - around 9 or 10 DPO and oddly enough my hair went super flat, but nothing much else and at the time I thought nothing of those two things and felt exactly like I do before AF every month - except for the big exception that I hadn't started my typical pre-AF spotting
What has been your strangest symptom: definitely the hair being a different texture. My hair was all of a sudden really smooth and flat one day and looked really different.
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: can't remember
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: not really, not that I had much in the way of symptoms the entire pg
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): I actually had about four bouts of brown spotting during my first 15 or so weeks of pregnancy. It was pretty scary the first couple of times but all was ok.
How did you tell DH: I walked out of the bathroom in tears clutching my FRER and just thrust it in his face while he was playing x-box - not very romantic but I was in SHOCK because I had convinced myself I was out.
What was DH's reaction: he was over the moon
How did you tell family/friends: we found out we were pregnant on 1 December 2011 so even though we were early - about 7 weeks - we told our immediate families at Christmas
What were their reactions: everyone was thrilled, especially DH's family as she's the first grandchild on their side. My folks cried.
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: I really wanted a DS but had a DD who I adore more than anything in the world. I look at her and can't believe how amazing she is. A DS would have been great too but I wouldn't swap my beautiful DD for anything.

Re: The Comprehensive BFP Mommy Quiz

Postby Kodak2057 » Sun Mar 10, 2013 11:43 am

I want to start with the caveat that I won't be super helpful for long term, I'm only 4 weeks 1 day and just found out by I am DYING to tell someone everything! So here you go!
Number of months you were TTC: 3 cycles but first 2 were iffy bc of DH's schedule
Describe BD frequency during that month: every day except one (day before o) for the 6 days before and including o day (that I knew from calendar charting and pos opks)
What BD position did you use: girl on top
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): DH was still nervous about getting pg bc it was so new so I didn't want to freak him out by putting my legs up or anything obvious so I used softcups to ease my mind about not laying still or anything afterwards.
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: don't know
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): as above I couldn't so I used softcup
Did you feel implantation (describe): I was crampy but not even as bad as normal pms cramps about 11-12 dpo
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): yes I thought I'd started AF like I usually do (I almost always have a bowel movement and when I wipe there's blood and then I need to put in a softcup because it has started!) and put in my softcup (which I normally use for that purpose and why I had one to use for bd) overnight then took it out and there was nothing, put in another took it out 12 hrs later and still nothing. I did 2 days and 2 nights before deciding this was definitely not normal.
How many dpo till you first tested: 15, 2 days after AF was supposed to have come and I'd only had that first bit of blood.
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: first time at 15 dpo
What test gave you the first BFP: first response
What was your first symptom: nothing unusual for pms, I was a bit moody, crampy and sore bbs but even the cramps and bbs were less than my normal pms.
What has been your strangest symptom: again, it's early, but I went to yoga and found that my hips aren't as flexible. I'd read about the hormones making your muscles and connector tissues change very early but didn't expect to actually notice it.
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: probably 10 bc I remember being very moody that day but had no other symptoms.
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: no, actually the only difference was cramps and bbs were less painful.
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): I am only 3 days after bfp and I have had lots of gas (cramping) and light pms like cramping which I am told is normal, no bleeding since implantation bleed before bfp.
How did you tell DH: I was in shock bc I thought AF had come, after reading how rare implantation bleeding is supposed to be I never expected to have it, I'd told him it had come and we went out and I had a drink. So I walked out of the bathroom with it and just said "um, I think I'm pregnant" then there was a whole lot of "holy s**t, are you sure?"
What was DH's reaction:/\ disbelief, he is still coming around. He is happy but still cautious, we both are, especially since we know it is still very delicate.
How did you tell family/friends: we've only told a couple and only because we are moving out of province next week so I wanted to tell my 2 bffs here in person, so we had to tell our parents first. Mine were on vacation so I texted dad and asked him to pass the phone to mom and texted her a pic of my test. DH was very smooth lol he called his mom and said "we think she might be pregnant" so pretty sure they still don't think I am. My 2 friends are sisters and were together and I just blurted it, one said "what's new" and that was all of my willpower gone lol
What were their reactions: my parents and bffs were ecstatic his parents still don't believe it, but will be over the moon when they come to terms that it's real :) we're 30 and have been married a couple of years so it's a very positive thing :)
Are you hoping for a DS or DD:I always wanted dd like most girls but I had a baby brother and he was useless lol ( I love him, but still, big brothers are protection, little brothers are annoying!) so I'd be cool with having a boy first :)

Good luck to everyone and baby dust to all!

It's taken me a while to get to this (I'm 13 wks). I POURED over these repeatedly when I was trying to conceive. They gave me hope! I hope this helps someone too. What I really think attributed to my BFP was B6 and natural progesterone cream, the first month I used it I got a bfp. I quit taking clomid two months prior to my bfp.

Number of months you were TTC: 4 months this time 2 months using clomid 2 months natual (1.5 years prior I ttc for a year with ex using clomid)
Describe BD frequency during that month: every day to every other day
What BD position did you use: me on top/bottom/on belly
Did you use Preseed, aspirin, green tea, or other (describe): took some baby aspirin but usually forgot. Also taking B6 and natural progesterone cream.
If you know the night of conception, did you have the other big O?: Probably
Did you lay down for a while, or prop your belly up? (describe): I usually lay down for a couple to 10 min either on my back or belly.
Did you feel implantation (describe): Yes! On 6 dpo I had a couple of sudden sharp stabbing pains near my left ovary that lasted several seconds.
Did you get any implanation bleeding (when?): Yes! 5 dpo
How many dpo till you first tested: 3 dpo (I wanted to make sure there was consistency with the wondfos and no shadows…)
How many dpo till you tested and got a BFP: 9dpo smu (4 days before missed AF) -(extremely light shadow of a line! You really had to know what you were looking for to spot it lol!)
What test gave you the first BFP: pink handle wondfo
What was your first symptom: overall not feeling well, fatigue, moody, mild nausea, fullness/tightness in abdomen, nipple pain from AF didn’t stay half as long as it usually does. (Came back with a vengeance after missed
AF).
What has been your strangest symptom: I have most of the other symptoms with AF but the fullness/tightness of my abdomen was a feeling I’ve never felt before.
On what dpo did you get your first symptom: 6dpo with implantation pain –knew that had to be it. The time was right and I have never felt anything like it.
Were your symptoms different from AF symptoms: Not much, actually they weren’t as bad and were shorter.
Did you experience cramping, bleeding etc after BFP (describe): No
How did you tell DH: We were heading to my parents and I was saying how I was getting nauseated and didn’t feel well. He said he hadn’t been feeling well either and we were both probably sick with the same thing. I replied “I highly doubt you are sick with what I’ve got.” Then proceeded from there 
What was DH's reaction:
“Okay…are you sure?” “Did you use those stupid cheap tests you bought?!” “We’ll see after we leave your folks, we’ll stop and get a real test.” Lol he didn’t want to get excited and thinks the wondfos must be junk because they are so cheap. Confirmed with a FRER. He decided to pee on a wonfo to check it’s effectiveness lol.
How did you tell family/friends: Told my mom by wrapping my FRER with tissue paper and putting it in a gift bag for her.
What were their reactions: Squeals!!
Are you hoping for a DS or DD: Either of course, both have their benefits but a son would be cool.
