BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 2 Mos. B4 Turning 40

I am so glad that there is now a section called BFP over 40.

This will be immensely helpful to those of us who are trying at 40 and over. I am trying to conceive naturally as I did before. It was two months before turning 40 and I received a BFP. I had been trying for three months and on the third, it worked! We were shocked. I had an HSG in August 2011 and the results were good. I also had my FSH, Estradiol and progesterone tested and they were very good. Still I was surprised to get pregnant naturally and overjoyed. At the 10.5 week ultrasound, DH and I learned that there was no heartbeat and an extra line along the fetus' back indicated a chromosome abnormality. I had a D&C and three weeks and 2 days later AF showed. Relief. We have been trying since January 2012 and I check this board every day for inspiration. I hope to share a BFP story soon.

I didn't have any symptoms when I did get pregnant in October 2011 except sore bbs three days after ovulation. This had never happened before. Right around when AF was due, I had a dull ache in my lower abdomen. Those were the only symptoms. Now of course I am keeping my fingers crossed for tons of symptoms, even unpleasant ones. I do know, though, that sometimes there aren't many symptoms.

So, this is a late story, but I had to add to the over 40 success stories because I was just about 40 when I conceived. Tons of baby dust to all! 


I also got a BFP after an HSG.  I heard that they can help clear things up, and apparently it worked!  Congrats to you.
