Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

After Two Miscarriages, My BFP This Morning

Dear Ladies,

First, I want to thank you. Your stories have all been an unwavering source of strength for me as we were TTC after two miscarriages last year.

I hope this long post does not dissuade you from reading this, as I believe it will give many of you hope.

I am 39. My husband is 43. We have no children. I have high FSH and low AMH (the double nail in the coffin, according to most fertility specialists).

Last year, I was pregnant for 6 months of the year, but one 10 week miscarriage and another miscarriage just shy of 16 weeks (due to a genetic abnormality) dashed our dreams of a family. The RE we saw said our best chance was conceiving naturally. My body did not respond to the drugs meant to trigger egg production (Gonal F).

This morning, 10 DPO, I could not bear the TWW any longer and tested. And there it was, clear as day, my double line. I am of course elated but (honestly) full of fear and trepidation at the same time. I am praying this will be lucky #3.

Here's what I think made the biggest difference:
I started paying attention to cervical mucous as the #1 indicator of my fertile window. It took me a while to get this, as I think I was overly reliant on tests to indicate fertility. I watched for egg white cervical mucous like a hawk, knowing this was my body's way of telling me: GREEN LIGHT.

I religiously took:
-A prenatal vitamin everyday
-CO-Q10 (UBIQUINOL- this is critical) - 600 mg/day (it's expensive but worth it)
-Vitex (800 mg)
-Royal Jelly (2000 mg/day)
-Maca (750 mg)
-Wheat grass in a shake every morning

I also resigned from my (high-powered, stressful) job to alleviate stress. I came to the (difficult) conclusion that the money wasn't worth the downside of being in a toxic work environment when my first priority was to have a baby. Toxic environments don't help create the harmony to conceive.

I took a step back from the fertility clinics, the meds (which made it impossible to stay in touch with the regular rhythm of my body, and left me tired and depressed) and tried to put faith back into MY own biological, innate power to conceive.

As for cycle tracking, I used Fertility Friend on my desktop, Ovia (on my iPhone) and an ovulation predicator kit to time sex. (The OPK, interestingly, said I ovulated on day 9 and again, 5 days later.) Ladies again, I watched for EWCM to refine the timing.

I tried to do at least 10,000 steps everyday, and get as much fresh air as possible.

And for the spiritual among you: family and friends prayed for me.

A couple of days ago, I had very minor spotting: a faint pink mixed with the finest darker (brownish) spots. This morning, again, the faintest, faintest pink, almost indiscernible.

At 6:30 am, despite my friends saying I should wait to avoid disappointment from early testing, I got my BFP. I cried, alone in the bathroom. It was a faint line at 10 DPO but there it was without a doubt, staring back at me.

I will say prayers for all of you, and hope this one sticks.

I am 32 and my husband is 35. We got pregnant on our first try in Jan. only to have our hopes dashed by a six-week MC in Feb. It was devastating but I was grateful that we were able to conceive so easily. We waited one full cycle to try again and now I am at the end of another Two Week Wait. I am scared to be hopeful. I tested this morning and it was negative but my period isn't even due till the 20th. I am so happy for you I cried a little when I read your post. Please say a little prayer for me. I will send a prayer to you and your sesame seed. Thank you so much for sharing this.

I'm the woman who posted the testimonial above. I want to tell you that I also cried when I read your post, first because I know the pain and trauma of a miscarriage so well, and second for your incredibly beautiful response to my post.

Can I address the fact that you got pregnant on your first time?. This cannot be underestimated, even though it ended in a devastating loss. Specialists have told me that most women they see cannot seem to get pregnant on their own. This is a massive advantage in your favour.

I just know in my gut that your dream of a baby will come true, for whatever that is worth. I know how stressful this whole process is, and I promise to pray for you and the baby that you WILL bring into this world.

Your prayers for me are so deeply appreciated.

Congratuations!! praying that this is a sticky bean for you.  I work in a high stress environment too and now that it is our 17th cycle trying, I'm seriously considering taking a break from work too.  I don't know you personally, but after reading your story I'm just so happy for you... wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

Thanks so much @bunny123 for your very kind wishes... :)
I don't think it's a coincidence that I got pregnant after stopping work 6 weeks ago! If you can swing it, I would definitely try to take some time off from work for yourself - it may be what you need. I really wish you every success with TTC.

Congrats! This is wonderful news especially with high FSH and low AMH!  I'm praying that this is your sticky bean - with a positive at 10 dpo, it's very very encouraging! :D

Congrats to you! I actually had 2 Miscarriages within 6 months (1 was in January) and I got my BFP this morning too at 10dpo! Good luck!

Hi ladies I to had two miscarriages last year the first one was at 6weeks 5days it was a mmc and I was devastate we tried every month after that and when I gave up in October I finally got my bfp in November but that didn't last long got so happy only to have had a obligated ovum didn't even get to see the baby.
