Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP at 40 After 6 Months TTC

I just turned 40 in December, DH 38. I have a DS 13, got pregnant 2 months TTC. And DS 3 took 7 months TTC. Went off BC pills in September '12 and had a chemical pregnancy in November. I noticed that my cycles and luteal phase seemed to be getting shorter, just by a couple of days and that I was having lots of luteal phase spotting. Started to wonder if my progesterone might be a little low. My husband and I had already decided that we would not seek any type of fertility treatment and that if it didn't happen naturally, it wasn't meant to be for us. We both felt already very blessed with our two boys and number 3 would just be icing on the cake. So to the Internet I went and for the last two cycles I have been taking 100 mg of B6 with 500 mcg of B 12. Also 1000 mg Vit C and a baby aspirin daily along with my regular prenatal. My cycle lengthened to my normal 28 days with a 14 day luteal phase. My spotting decreased last month, though I still had it for 2 days. So on to this month. I O'd on CD 14. BD'd on CDs 9,11,13 and 14. Used Pre-Seed. I believe in it! I also used OPKs and charted my BBT. During the previous 5 months I have symptom spotted like crazy. Cramps, sore bbs, chills, nausea, dizziness. This month I had almost no symptoms. No sore bbs at all. I had a little bit of cramping 10 and 11 dpo along with the tiniest amount of light pink spotting. I got my BFP today at 12dpo with a FRER. It was somewhat faint, but no doubt about it. I have never tested this early before so I expect it will get darker in a day or two. It is definitely darker than the line I had with my chemical pregnancy at 14dpo, so I am hopeful. Good luck to everyone! Don't lose hope!


Thank you for posting. I'm 39.

And happy n healthy 9 mos. so happy for you.
