BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Tomorrow WAS our IVF consultation...but today we got our first ever BFP!

I'm still so in shock. I always thought it would be different and I would never be one of those stories. But ladies...I'm here tonight to share my story and hope that it keeps someone's hope alive. DH and I have been TTC since I took my nuvaring out in June of 2012. We were married in October of 2012 and really started TTC then. I was on a diet for my wedding but still GAINED 40 lbs... that's when I knew something was wrong. By December that year, I started to get hair on my chin and the weight just kept piling on. For the first time in my life, I had a 54 day cycle. January 2013 I was diagnosed with PCOS. Fast forward to January 2014. By that time we had done 11 medicated cycles. Clomid started at 50mg and worked our way to 200mg. We then added dexamethazone (which helped make mature follicles! ) then switched to femara...add dexamethazone to that...add Femara with iui's. Normal sperm counts too. Then, the beginning of 2014, we went to Menopur injections for two cycles. Everything was perfect for the iui, but then....dh's number dropped drastically low. So low they couldn't count them. That was horrible. We put him on Clomid 25 MG for a few months, went to a urologist. ..nothing. no explanation. We tried a few more times with IUI's and nothing took. Then we took a break, trying on our own. Letting our bodies rest, because we knew we were going to do IVF in January. I tried my hardest to really relax, but I'll admit. I totally pos about 5-10 per cycle. Nothing ever happened. Ever. Like I've never ever seen a second line, much less a "pregnant". Until today. I am on CD 37, and AF was supposed to be here on Sunday. I tested on Sunday, bfn. Totally white. Story of my life. I've been cramping so bad this week. Like Monday I did nothing but take bath's and Alieve. So our appointment (that we have been waiting on for 2 months) for IVF is scheduled for tomorrow. I asked dh to bring home a test, just so tomorrow I can just tell the doctor it's bfn. I mean, my cycle ranges from 30-38 days. We were making dinner and I was finishing up the paperwork for our appointment tomorrow. I had to pee, so I brought the test in, took it, the brought it out to sit on the counter.....I forgot about it. DH went over to get a cutting board, and glanced at the test. I didn't notice. Then he picked up the box, looked at it. Looked at it again and said "is this supposed to have two lines on it, because it does". OMG! We finally got our bfp guys! I'm pretty scared but after even a digital confirming it, I'm going to let myself be happy. I'm cramping SO bad, like AF is in full force, but no spotting so I'm trying to stay positive. As far as symptoms go... major AF cramps, major!...left nipple feels like there is a needle in it, but only sometimes.... and I'm constipated. ...I don't really know what to say. Don't count yourself out. For real. I still feel horrible right now. Hopefully everything will be okay. I hope this helps. I wasn't tracking, so I don't know dpo. (I really didn't even think I ovulated). It's a freaking miracle ya'll! Baby dust to everyone! XOXO

Congratulations. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months.

So happy for you! I had AF type cramps until I was about 6 weeks along. They were traded at that pint for morning sickness- I'd much rather have the cramps! Anyway, it's normal and healthy to be feeling those cramps!


That's awesome!!  Congratulations!  H&h 9 months.  :-)

Great story. Congratulations!  What a great phone call to make - cancelling that appointment!

Congratulations!!! I had shocking cramps from when I was due for my period until about 7 weeks. I felt sure I was going to miscarry but saw a healthy kicking bub last week. My point- cramps are normal so try to relax and enjoy!!!

Congrats! Did your DH's sperm improve?

Not sure about his sperm since we were on a break and didn't do an analysis. Last Fri my HCG was 100, this Monday my HCG was 386 which is great, but my progesterone wad 4.6. I'm worried, but I don't have any spotting. I started prometrium suppositories today. I'm trying to relax and stay hopeful. Thanks to all who have commented! Wishing only the best for you!

What a fabulous story! Congratulations! I don't think you mentioned your age... Do you mind me asking? If so, don't worry about answering;-)

Thank you, My HCG went up to 2600 and I have a doctors appointment in two days! Can't wait! :) I'm 29 and DH is 38. :)

Hey Ladies, not sure if anyone is still reading this or not. BUT! Today we had our first U/S! My blood pressure was high and that worried me a bit, but all is good. We saw a heartbeat and she said I am 6 weeks 1 day today! Which means I ovulated on CD21! We got our bfp on CD37, so that would make sense! It was so weird looking at the screen and actually seeing a baby. I'm so used to looking at if for follicles! Anyway...I'm still in shock. EEK I'm so happy! I can't believe this is really happening to me. I hope I'm not hurting anyone by writing here. I know when I read all the BFP stories, I loved the ones where she followed up :). Oh...another thing I was going to say that might have helped. DH was on Clomid 25mg but I was on NOTHING. No metformin, no prenatal etc. I also quit smoking on September 8th 2014 after smoking for exactly 10 years. Man, I'm glad I did that! XOXO Sending all the dust your way!

Awesome congratulations!

Amazing story!

Congratulations! Such a great share! praying for the safe delivery of your health baby.
