I "Googled" my life away thinking I had PCOS & A 2nd LH Surge because i had Multiple Positive OPK's & a Negative HPT. I trusted my intuition and found I was right. So if you test early and think a negative HPT is not correct make sure to keep taking tests until AF shows up . Your Not out until the "Wicked Witch Sings". Im still in Disbeilef I didnt think it was possible for me to get Pregnant after Having No AF for (4) years because I was underweight. Finally 5 Months ago I started getting AF & I had skipped one cycle . Also I had irregular cycles . Anything is possible. :)

BFP after IUI 12dpiui!

Hi ladies, So I too am like so many of you who have been stalking these boards for the past 2 years, praying one day I would have my chance to post. My story is a bit long, but it may bring hope to some of you so I thought I'd share.... This will be my third pregnancy, my first was in 2009, when I became pregnant for the first time (accidentally...but don't shoot me, I now completely understand how annoying people who get pregnant "accidentally" are) but at the time it was true. At my 14 week ultrasound I was told I would need to go to a neonatologist the next day as my scan was concerning. My baby was diagnosed with bilateral complete occlusions of his urethral valves, which meant he would have kidney damage, and also meant I had no amniotic fluid. Throughout the pregnancy we went for scan after scan, amniocentesis again and again, until we were told there was nothing that could be done, and if our baby survived the pregnancy, he would not survive after birth. He was born Dec 2, and lived for 90 of the best minutes of my life. Following his loss, his father and I fell apart (there were many issues prior to his birth) Fast forward 6 years, I am now happily married to the most patient and understanding man in the world and the love of my life. We both had had children previously, he has an beautiful 8 year old daughter and I had my angel baby. The Drs told us there would be no issues and just to "give it time". DH was 35 and I was 34 when we started trying. Fast forward 1 year, we finally convince our family dr to send us to a fertility specialist who tells us I don't ovulate regularly. Not a great surprise when you've been trying for a year already. The dr put me on clomid and within 4 months I was ovulating! Yeah!!! Except....now, because of the almost year and a half of the stress of trying, DH, now has delayed ejaculation. Soooo, off the fertility clinic for IUI. DH's counts post wash are over 15 million, so we were good to go! We did our first IUI in feb 2016 and we were ecstatic when we found out it was successful!!! 10 weeks later, while I was at work I started cramping and bleeding, which continued to progress and resulted in a miscarriage. I was devastated. I cried for days, all I've ever wanted was to be a mom and I finally felt like I would be complete. Now, I felt lost again. The fertility clinic told us we could try again in July, but because of our work schedules, we were sure we'd have to wait until August. Luckily, our work schedules miraculously opened up, and we were able to do another IUI on July 29th I'm now 12 dpiui and was convinced (I think as a self protection mechanism) that I wasn't pregnant) I thought I'd just take a test and then be able to move on and focus on our next step. I was in complete shock when the test turned positive pretty quickly! I'm so relieved, so happy, and so terrified! Ps: I haven't even gotten a chance to tell DH, he's away working right now. Gives me time to plan a great surprise for him! Anyways ladies, just wanted to give you all hope. It has been an incredibly difficult journey for us. I've gone through hell and back, and yet here I am telling you it's possible. There is always hope. Symptom wise...not a whole lot to be honest! A little nausea here and there, sore BB's, and intermittently teary and grouchy. 1 day post IUI was probably my biggest what the heck moment, when I could feel like a twisting, fluttering feeling on my left side, it was very obvious and made me stop in my tracks. Also had to wake up to pee in the first few days, and some crazy weird, vivid dreams! I don't know how reliable that is, but it was unusual for me. Sorry! I know that was really long, but if it helps just one person, then I'm happy! Baby dust to all of you!!!

To my PCOS friends - there's hope for natural pregnancy!

Never thought I would have a BFP story like this one but god works in mysterious ways: My son is 6 months old, it took us 5 cycles of fertility treatments to concieve (4 on clomid, and 1 successful cycle on gonal-f). Had a mild case of PCOS (mild, as I wasn't overweight, with oily/zitty skin or other common PCOS symtpoms, but my hormones were just not working - I would get a period once in a blue moon and even then it felt like I got it only because my utures got sick of holding on to all the blood...) So after my son's birth I didn't prevent as I thought I was 'gifted' with natural birth-control... My last period was 4 months ago, I've tested twice after about two months and got a BFN, decided my body was back to its not-ovulating self and carried on as usual. The last two weeks I had a constant nausea that felt exactly like the morning sickness from my previous pregnancy. Husband refused buying another test and I agreed with his reasoning - we had no reason to believe I ovulated... Yesterday I've had enough and told him to get me one just so I could rule out pregnancy and see what this nausea it all about. Was in utter shock when the two lines appeared instantly! Went to the doctor's office - turns out I'm 7 weeks pregnant... I never looked for symptoms as I wasn't expecting it at all so have nothing to share with you ladies, just a hopeful message that sometimes the problems goes away by itself... (We already had a fertility doctor's appointment scheduled for the next week as we were ready to start trying again but like I said - god works in mysterious way). If you're here waiting for your BFP and encouraging yourself with success stories - hope you'd get it as soon as possible!

BFP with PCOS/Clomid 2nd attempt

Hi Ladies, I have been stalking this site since a long time and I decided that when I get a BFP I will write and pass on encouragement and hope to other fellow women going through this trauma.. I m 29 year old and my hubby is 32 years old. We have been trying to conceive for a year. I knew i had PCOS since I was 15 years old. My gynac at that time said "Make sure you try for babies right away because you would have trouble". Fast forward to today. We went to RE after reading good reviews about him. Our first appointment lasted for 2 hours, he explained everything and course of action. We started with clomid 100 for 5 days in May. I fell pregnant in June. However the HCG kept reducing and I had very early miscarriage. I was heart broken and cried for days. Doctor suggested trying clomid again for the next cycle, however my left ovary was very stubborn and the dose didn't help the follicle to grow as required. He then up my dose further. I ovulated little late than last month and unlike last month I didn't had the usual ovulation cramps which made me think this month is wasted as well. 14 days after my positive OPK, I checked tried HPT, i had no hopes and got a BFN. Doctor told me just wait for periods, if it doesnt show up in 3 days try HPT again. After 3 days, tried the HPT, and voila BFP! I could believe my eyes, I woke my husband at 4.45 am to ask him if he could see the line or I m hallucinating.. how can it be possible. Next day did a blood draw and HCG came out to 284! Did followup HCG and it had the right value again. Frankly speaking we didn't do anything different than last month, had folic acid supplement,metformin and healthy lifestyle. I had my ultrasound last week and saw a bright beating heart.. which brought me to tears! Today I m 7 weeks 6 days pregnant and I didnt had any nausea , morning sickness or crazy cramps. In fact I dont feel pregnant at all. I do have food aversions, frequent trip to bathroom, bad acne. Hoping and praying for a healthy baby and full term. For all those ladies out there, no matter what happens or what people say.. don't lose hope! Medicine and science has come too far along and maybe you would live the marvel in your lifetime!

1st month trying! bfp 9dpo!!

Holy crap! NEVER in a million years would I have thought I would conceive my 1st month actually trying. We have talked about having a baby last month so we pretty much were trying without actually trying. This month we decided we were actually going to try. I got my period July 1st the day before my birthday and ovulated on the 22nd of July. Keep in mind we work at opposite time of the day so we only had time to bd 5 times that month. we did it on the ( 6th, 12th, 16th, 21st, and 22nd) here were my symptoms leading up to the BFP 1dpo: nothing 2dpo: sticky cm 3dpo: very fatigued, heavy cough 4dpo: very fatigued, light acne, light nausea, light upper backache, stuffy nose, heavy cough 5dpo: light nausea, light cramps, heavy cough 6dpo: sharp pain under belly button (implantation??) nausea, heavy cough 7dpo: light sore throat, medium cough, medium upper backache 8dpo: nothing 9dpo: light fatigue, light cramps. (tested ebay cheapie, FAINT LINE) Today im 12dpo and I used a first response and a VERY DARK BFP!!! so I have extremely irregular periods I get about 2 a year so for my irregular ladies my advice to you is to NEVER lose hope!! Also PRAY I prayed every night for someone else then I pray for this this to be the month! praying never fails <3 always I was a twin anyone thing its likely I have twins?? just curious?

5+ years ttc with PCOS BFP+++Conceived naturally with diet change!

This will be long so if you just want symptoms DPO then scroll down to the bottom. I wrote this for my PCOS lady's because i want us all to cure are PCOS, and I have found out how. Cleared my skin, lessen excess hair, regulated periods, induced ovulation, and weight loss all without medication, or supplements. I have PCOS, and I was not ovulating on my own. I did not want to take metformin and clomid. After a lot of research I found that pcos is caused by insulin resistance, which is in turn is caused by too much sugar, and carbohydrates in the diet. Which is why metformin helps women conceive by increasing insulin sensitivity, which allows your hormones to normalize. On 12/05/15 I started the Ketogenic Diet. It is Low carb, high fat, moderate protein. Basically all you eat is Veggies, meat, and small amounts of dairy, and nuts. No sugar, no grains, no starchy, veggies, no fruit! At the same time i tracked my calories on an app so as to not go over 2000 cals a day. So far i have lost 40lbs, but this was not my goal pregnacy was. with in 2 weeks of starting this diet, i got my period for the first time in 6 months. I then had 3 consecutive 28 day cycles, but i do not believe i was ovulating because i had no fertile cm, negative opks, and light bleeding for my period. In MAY 2016 i got my first positive OPKS, EWCM, ovulation pains, followed by heavy, crampy 6 day period. Yay!!! I'm ovulatating! bfn cycles, but progress :) My cycles where i actually ovulated became longer 39 dayish cycles. I feel if I ate too many carbs, my ovulation would delay. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well this cycle, was a long one. I ovulated on the fourth of July Cycle day 26. positive opks, 8 days of ewcm, lots of right sided cramps the 3rd, and 4th. 1DPO: Sore Nipples, and fronts of breast, no side breast pain. Had this the whole TTW 2DPO: Sore breasts 3DPO: right ovary cramping, sore breasts 4DPO:sore breasts 5DPO: Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 7DPO: gas bubbles in tummy, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 8DPO: more gas bubbles, but no gas, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 1 hour, sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 9DPO: diarrhea in morning,Tired, occasional light cramps, almost like I'm imagining them. like uterine contractions after an orgasm. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 10DPO:diarrhea in morning, light cramps only when i standup. I would stand up, walk a few feet and would be hit with cramps in the center of my uterus, would last 5 seconds or so, and i would not cramp again until i sat, and then stood up again. Sore Breasts -BFN WONDFO 11DPO:diarrhea in morning, Same cramps but getting stronger and more uncomfortable. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO almost think i see something, but toss it. 12DPO: Same intense cramps. consitpation, tested with FMU saw a line so light, i thought it was an evap, i couldn't capture it in a picture. but it made my wonder. Tested on another WONDFO in afternoon on 4 hour hold very Faint BFP, but i see color! dip Frer in same urine Sample and a faint pink line there as well!!! 13DPO: same cramps, but random, not just when i stand. Boobs are not as sore. slight nausea. Positive Clear blue digital!!! 3 weeks 6 days pregnant! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I account my pregnancy 100% to the ketogenic diet, if i do not count my carbs, and my calories i do not ovulate. It took me 7 months from starting this diet to convenience after 5 years of nothing. If you have PCOS try it, you will see vast improvements. I pray this bean is a sticky one! Baby dust to all!!!

Am I Finally Pregnant?

Evening ladies after 4 long and hard years (including 4 failed IVF's) trying to concieve I received a very faint Positive this morning. Would you agree this is a positive? Hope im not imaging it xxx

BFP after 6 years TTC!

I honestly can't believe I am writing my BFP story! I've stalked this site for years trying to convince myself not to give up all hope. I got pregnant naturally 9 years ago with my ex partner accidentally after a laparoscopy for endo. Sadly that ended in a m/c (baby had a chromosomal problem). I met my now husband in 2008 and I came off contraception in 2010, thinking it would happen as easily as it did last time but that was not the case. Tried to conceive for 3 years with no luck before deciding to go to the doctor after we got married in 2013. Then started the proper monitoring of my cycles, which were all over the place. Went for scans and investigations where they decided I had PCOS. Started seeing my fertility doctor early 2014 and he said we would see how things go but I will probably need IVF. Got freaked out and kept postponing my appointments until I got my head together again. In 2015 we started 6 rounds of clomid 50mg, nothing happened. I told my doctor that I fell pregnant after a laparoscopy before and I wanted to try it again. He agreed and said he would also perform ovarian drilling. I had the operation in January 2016. My periods sort of regulated but still nothing happened. Asked if I could try clomid again and he agreed but said after this IVF was our only option, totally heartbroken. People around me kept getting pregnant, sometimes twice in the time I had been trying and I cried everytime. He prescribed 2 months of clomid at 25mg and then another 3 months at 50mg. Well on my second cycle of clomid 25mg (the first time I took it bang on the same time every day) days 2-6 we decided to just relax. Previously I had tried everything. Headstands, lying down with my hips elevated, you name it I tried it. This month I decided just to relax (one of the hardest things to do when TTC) and just went with the flow. I didn't monitor where I was in my cycle so I don't know exactly when all my symptoms started or where I was in my cycle when they did. I started to get my usual symptoms before my period, cramps, backache, sore boobs so was convinced AF was on her way. It got to day 34 (first time I looked at what day I was on) and I thought it was strange to be that late on clomid but after reading some posts on the internet I discovered it is possible to have late cycles on clomid so I was gutted, thought here we go everything is messed up again. The days went by, still no sign of AF, boobs were still sore, tired and backache. Started to want to eat a lot more. Finally on day 40 I thought, I better test and see. Used FMU and almost instantly a faint line appeared! I thought I was imagining it so shouted to DH who was still in bed and he confirmed he saw the line too! It then got darker and darker. Did another test later on in the day and BFP again! We were literally over the moon! My biggest indicator was that although my symptoms were similar to AF, they felt 'slightly' different. Things we did differently this month was relax, no charting, BD whenever we felt like it not regimented. Also, I started reading a book called 'The Secret' and started visualising having a baby and BFP rather than being negative and thinking it will never happen. I still can't believe I'm pregnant, I'm approx 6 weeks now and have nausea, bloating, mild cramping, back ache and extreme tiredness. I'm now trying to not panic about everything which is really hard! All I can say to everyone TTC is never give up. I swore I would keep going, I would have my baby one day and my prayers have been answered. Sending lots of baby dust to all still TTC, I know it is the absolute worst but it will happen one day. Praying now for a healthy and safe pregnancy x

BFP very minimal symptoms

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share my story with all of you mama's-to-be out there. First of all I'm going to be 32, husband 36, both healthy have one 16 month old DD. Have been experiencing irregular cycles since 10 months post partum, anywhere from 47 to 33 days ( though they've been getting more regular with each passing cycle). We've been trying for 6 months and using preseed and Opk's. This month was actually the first month I didn't use OPK's or preseed. Because my periods have been so irregular I had no idea when I was ovulating and for some reason my post partum body was not producing ewcm like it used to, so I used an app to target my fertile window. (The app was actually a bit off in its calculation according to when I got my first bfp, so I think it's really important to listen to your body and BD when youre feeling randy). We tried to BD every other night starting a week after my period ended, but we Def missed a few nights. Unfortunately I can't list symptoms ( or lack of) according to DPO, since I can't be certain of when I ovulated. Please note that hese symptoms are things that I discovered in hindsight. Feeling short of breath taking stairs at work (just thought I needed to lose 5lbs) Got a head cold with persistent runny nose (I have a toddler 'nuff said) Very transient breast pain (just thought period was coming) Felt a bit nauseous one evening (just assumed it was from the 3 cocktails I had earlier that day- obviously I'm a believer in the drink till it's pink addage) Slept like a log one night and woke up with a very stiff neck Those were my only symptoms during my tww. I had no noticeable cm changes, dreams, mood changes, bloating, breast growth (sad i know) or bowel issues. That has been my experience this time around and I don't think I had any tww symptoms the first time around either. Hope this helps some of the future moms out there. Good luck and baby dust to you all!
