BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Defeating all the odds with my BFP

Hello everyone.

I wanted to share my story with you all as BFP stories always helped me keep hope and I never thought my story would lead to a beautiful BFP... here goes...

So, firstly, I have been trying to get pregnant for 5 months at this point, I have 32 day cycles and I have a BMI of 41 so I didn't expect it to happen.

I have a huge heap of ebay pregnancy tests in my cupboard which come out far too early in each of my cycles whilst I struggle with the impatience of the TWW.

This time I was much better and starting testing at 10DPO. BFN.
No symtoms, no nothing.
11DPO. BFN. Still nothing. Counted myself out at this point.
13 DPO. BFN. Boring.
14 DPO, period day, BFN. Period feels like its well on the way with the usual crampy feeling. The only thing I noticed was different was that my boobs DIDNT hurt when they normally do a week prior to my periods.
15 - 18 DPO. BFN. Seriously. This is annoying now. I know I'm not pregnant so just hurry up already period.
19 DPO. BF...P? No? I don't know. My ebay cheapy was showing possibly the faintest second line in the world. This was the most frustrating feeling. I showed various close friends and relatives and they couldn't see anything. I was fuming! What does this mean?
I obsessed all day over it and eventually went and bougbt a clear blue early detection test..
And there it was. A BFP! A REALLY BFP!!! It was so clear!! I'll never use those cheap teasing ebay tests again!
My BFP day was Haloween 2016. My husband came home that evening and I revealed our amazing news. Everyone close to us was overjoyed and It really didn't feel real.
And then...
That evening... I bled.
It was like the start of a period. Bright red blood on the tissue. I put on a sanitary towel but it never touched it, the blood was just there on wiping. I was so upset, my BFP came and felt lost in one day.
I called the early pregancy unit the next day and explained, she of course said I'm very early and what Id need to do is take another test in 2 weeks time and if its positive everything is okay and if negative then unfortunately I har misscarried.
Now, I know how much we all hate the TWW but this was complete torture for 2 weeks. There was no more bleeding and I was so confused.
After a horrifically long 2 weeks I took another test. Digital this time. Within seconds the screen told me I was 2-3 weeks pregnant! Amazing!
I was overjoyed once again.
Two days later... I bled again.
More this time.
Bright red blood.
Again, it didnt touch a sanitary towel but it took a few days to completely dissappear.
I couldnt believe this kept happening.
The early pregnancy unit booked me in for an early scan which revealed a sac and a yolk. A very early pregnancy. From this they couldnt tell me anything, they said we need to see how this progresses, come back in two weeks....
Oh the hurt I went through again..
An incredibly long 2 weeks later...
Second scan day. My baby had grown :) they confirmed a healthy 7 week pregnancy and I saw the beautifully flickering heartbeat.
I couldnt believe it.
I am now 10 weeks pregnant, I have had no more bleeds and I am suffering with terrible morning sickness and I couldn't care less! Bring on the sickness! As long as little bean is healthy :)
Love, a very happy mummy to be xxx


Am so thrilled, you story had a happy ending. I wish myself this goodnews am 13 dpo
