BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with NO symptoms

Hi ladies I don't know how many times I have read through the stories on this board, looking for hope or reassurance. There is just no way that I wasn't going to come back and post my own, so here goes: We have been trying since January and almost every month that has gone by, I've been "sure" that I have one or more symptoms, only for AF to arrive, right on time. Much to my amazement, I received my BFP on Friday morning. The line was faint, but definitely there - no squinting required - and came up within the first 2 minutes. I have subsequently pee'd on a stick every morning since to watch the line get darker (which it has), and to remind myself that I really AM pregnant and not making it all up ;) This is because I HAVE NO SYMPTOMS! None. Zip. Zero. I feel as normal as any other day. The only reason I tested when I did was because I had a very vivid dream about being pregnant. Now, I know that some may call that a symptom, but I don't think it counts. This lack of symptoms is so complete that I have POAS at least twice every day since Friday and have had 2 blood tests. My beta numbers have come back with a doubling time of 31 hours, so the levels are really racing up, and yet, I HAVE NO SYMPTOMS! No sore breasts; no nausea; no fatigue; no funny taste or super sense of smell; no headaches; no backache; no cramp... NADA. I am very grateful that I have had such an easy ride so far - long may it last... although I suspect that I might get blindsided in a few days or weeks, lol! But if it's part of having a healthy bub, I say bring it on. If nothing else, some symptoms would reassure me that I am not just imagining it all! Anyway, I wanted to post this as a ray of hope to all of you desperately wanting your BFP and not experiencing any symptoms. It can and does happen! Much love and baby dust to all xxxx


Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant pregnancy symptoms is a delayed or missed period. Understanding the signs of pregnancy is important because each symptom may have causes other than pregnancy. You may experience pregnancy signs within a week of conception. Some women report that they did not experience any symptom for a few weeks. While implantation bleeding is often considered the first pregnancy symptom, the survey conducted by the American Pregnancy Association revealed that only 3% of women identified implantation bleeding as their first sign of pregnancy. Spotting or light bleeding: If pregnant, this symptom is usually associated with implantation bleeding and is considered one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. The embryo usually implants to the uterine between 6 to 12 days after conception. Some women will experience spotting as well as cramping. Other women do not even notice implantation bleeding or cramping.

Some people would say "easy pregnancy, difficult child. Difficult pregnancy, easy child." Good luck. Hope it lasts. Every peron is really different. Many theories to that. Your body subconsciously knew what was going on. Dont ignore those dreams or gut feelings. If you feel like somethings up, go to the er. I didnt think i had any symptoms with my son before i knew until i was reading journal entries about being sotired in class at college i couldmt keep my head up or eyes open. Smells were the worst for me backhen with him. 2nd aon ended in still birth t 27 wks from suffocating not getting enough oxygen thru plaenta. High bp. Third, my daughter, little to no symptoms less weight gain, almost no swelling as with both sons especialh second (partly i believe bevause i was extra unhealthy older and over weight) maybe its a girl. Lol Good luck!!!

Hi there, thanks for the post it certainly makes me feel better. usually before AF i get sore nipples and cramps but this month nothing it all, i am now 12DPO i had cramps until 8DPO but nothing major and nothing since, just bad bloating and gas pains for 2 days which are now gone also which isnt a usual pre - AF symptom for me, maybe not getting it all is a good sign. lets wait and see only time will tell. i have in the past 4 months POAS many times and been sad when its not happened but this month i havent i thought no chance i cant be with no symptoms, i went on holiday and never thought anything of it and been more relaxed and i wont test now until IF i miss my AF. Thanks for your post! :)

Hi! Congratulations on your BFP! I completely understand I had been trying since February and the one month I did not symptom spot I got my BFP with only one symptom! And that was that I was an emotional wreck, so I truly didn’t notice that until my oh mentioned how emotional I had been recently. Good luck with everything! And to all those mummqs still ttc it’s only a matter of time hang in there x
