BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP Short Luteal Phase

BFP with spotting after 18 months trying!!! :))

Hi all!

Like all the ladies on this wonderful site, I wanted to contribute my story because so many of your stories helped me through the 18 excruciating months of TTC. And let me tell you ladies, I feel like I did everything wrong this month and it still worked out!! So there is always hope :)

A little background: short of IUI and IVF my DH and I have tried almost everything! What seemed to work in our favor this month was:
- stayed away from Tylenol PM (last three months no sleeping aids. Ladies this one I think really helped, because since I stopped taking Tylenol I've had 2 CP's and now my confirmed BFP, all consecutively since I stopped)
- pre seed (just enough to lubricate, nothing more),
- vitex (one daily, for the last 6 months. This month I took 2 the day before predicted ovulation day, as I wanted to catch ovulation before I was out of town)
- on prenatal vitamins (last 4 months)
- drank copious amounts of water (kept hydrated, used MIO electrolytes mixed with lemon juice in water).

My cycles are usually 26 days long, with a 5 day menses and shorter luteal phases of 12 days. I usually ovulate around CD 12-14.

So now onto the good stuff!! Here my symptoms by DPO:

CD 9: fertile window opened BD'd
CD 11: started getting EWCM BD'd
CD 12: OPK test strip darker than control line
CD 13: EWCM major cramps on left: possible O day BD'd
1 DPO: great mood, a little tired and queasy (normal for me after O) Bbs starting to get tender (a little early, usually starts a week before AF)
2 DPO: some more cramping on the left (also possible O day, I had to catch an international flight on CD 14 so O may have been delayed) bbs still tender. Mood is happy and content.
3 DPO: a little jet lagged so drank a strong coffee and felt super twitchy and shaky all day.
4 DPO: tired, but probably still lagged. Bbs tender
5 DPO: heartburn and headache. Trouble sleeping (again probably the lag). Minor cramps. Full feeling in uterus, increased clear CM like EWCM (really strange for me, this usually only happens during O) sorry TMI: there was a lot and I literally felt it coming out!
6 DPO: More EWCM, so weird! Heartburn, headache. Minor cramps.
7 DPO: cramping on the right mainly and a little on the left. Constipated.
8 DPO: minor cramps, caved and tested waaaaay to early of course BFN.
9 DPO: no symptoms, tested again and BFN (or is there the faintest line???? could just be line eyes)
10 DPO: tired and moody. Wanted to kill my DH for no reason. Trouble sleeping.
11 DPO: really bloated and tired. Bbs are still tender!!
12 DPO: feel good mood is elevated and feeling very positive about everything!!
13 DPO: AF due, some minor cramps on the right and then the left. Veeeeeery faint BFP on Walmart cheapie.
14 DPO: officially one day late. Bloated and heartburn. Feeling good mood wise.
15 DPO: no symptoms, in a great mood.
16 DPO: had a faint BFP in the morning, then bad cramping like first CP, some spotting (brown, and very light) in the evening. Thought I was out like the previous 2 months, then tested in the evening and got a BFP a nice visible line, darker than in the morning! Mood was all over the place!
17 DPO: Got up before the alarm. Minor cramps, a little spotting, metallic taste in mouth. BFP line not fading, very good sign!!
18 DPO: woke up super early again. Cramping on the right, still spotting. Test getting darker :)
19 DPO: up early again, feel super energized. Spotting getting lighter, minor cramping in the morning getting worse towards evening. Very sensitive in the evening, still BFP line is not fading. Bloated. BFP on Clearblue digital!! (that didn't happen with CP) :D
20 DPO: spotting almost gone, only visible with BM (sorry for TMI), now spotting is mostly white mixed with a little brown. Bbs still tender, BFP line getting darker :)
21 DPO: lower backache today (on and off the past few days, but today a little more pronounced) heartburn, BFP like still dark. Spotting a little in the morning, then nothing.
22 DPO: woke up with painfully tender bbs! Felt like someone hit them! Still spotting a little throughout the day, some minor cramps and started to feel nauseous when I went shopping this morning. Tired towards the afternoon, but could also be due to waking up so early in the mornings.

Right now I'm at 22 DPO. I've been to my GP and she confirmed with a blood test that I'm pregnant :D I have my first OBGYN appointment on Thursday to check that all my levels are where they need to be, as I am 35 and its considered a "higher risk" pregnancy from that age. I'll update as soon as I know more.

BFP after 22 months, short luteal phase and Endo

I have been TTC for 22 months. I am 37 and started when I felt pressure to have a second at 35. I have endometriosis, hypothyroid, gastroparesis, as well as a short luteal phase which doctors kind of ignored and went straight to the I word. I can’t possibly do that bc of money. Anyway I have to say I had a feeling from the day I ovulated. Everything changed from the first day which was so different from my first pregnancy when I had no idea. I wanted to post this here because I stalked this site so many times but also because I Know the reason I got pregant and I think it may help others. I USED VITEX THIS CYCLE AND GOT PREGANT THE FIRST TRY AFTER 22 months, an endometriosis diagnosis and a short luteal phase (8-10 days). I took a risk because I know many people have had miscarriages on it but I have found enough reliable info for me that I was willing to try it. I will continue it to the end of the first trimester. I found information that explained that a short luteal phase is likely due to low progesterone and that is what the vitex helps! My O showed up four days early! So people who have miscarriages from it often actually have it from stopping (and therefore dropping progesterone) and not just from being on it. I know this got me pregnant so it’s a big step further than I was able to do without it. That being said, I got symptoms starting the day I ovulated. I chalked it up to the rise in progesterone from the vitex, which it may have been. There’s no way to tell bc I got pregnant the first cycle on it so I have nothing to compare it to.
1 dpo twitching in uterus like an eye twitch. Very annoying. Uterus felt hard. Belly very bloated. Lots of ovary cramping.
2 dpo- current: headaches and two migraines (these usually only happen during period) dizzy spells, emotional, feeling weepy occasionally. Cramps, ovary pain. Very slight tingling boobs on outside edge only. Nauseous all the time. Extremely forgetful and mixing things up.
9 dpo I woke up to a very pregnant looking belly and was like wtf if I’m not pregnant I need to stop eating at all. It’s also very hard like down low where your uterus is. I swear this began the very first day after the positive OPK. I have gained four pounds in a week. Got BFP THIS MORNING. Very dark in under a minute. The test looked different right away.
That’s it ladies. Try that vitex just don’t go right off it bc your progesterone will drop!

Faint BFP at 12 DPO!!

At the age of 37 I am TTC #2 with DH. We currently have a 19 month old son. This board has helped me get through the TWW many many times so i hope my story can help someone else. I am a plus size woman who for years struggled with amenorrhea with no underlying cause. I would go months without a period. On top of that DH struggles with ED. To achieve pregnancy with DS we used the at home insemination process, i tracked my cycle using Fertility Friend and OPK’s. We got pregnant the second cycle. The second time we TTC (Baby #2) we again got pregnant right away using the same method and i suffered a MC one week after getting my BFP. During this time i was nursing DS. My aunt and GYN advised me to stop nursing and they guaranteed that my cycles would regulate itself and I’d get pregnant. I weaned my son by August and my cycle became a regular 35-day cycle. Again, using the same method (OPK’s, at-home insemination, and tracking BBT on Fertility Friend. I got BFN’s for Sept, Oct, and Nov. I got a false BFP with a Walmart cheapie in October. So, here’s what you’ve been waiting for: (+ OPK at Cycle Day 21 (Temp 97.7)....Ovulation Cycle Day 22 Temp again is 97.5)

1 DPO - Nothing (temp 97.5)
2 DPO - Nothing (Inseminated one more time for good measure. We inseminated every other day 5 days leading up to expected ovulation) (Temp 97.7)
3 DPO - Temp spike to 98.2 (I’m usually around 97.5), headache and nausea
4 DPO - Nothing (temp still at 98.2)
5 DPO - Backache, tender breast, nausea and mild cramps (Temp 98.1 Ovulation confirmed two days after +OPK which was a bit off)
6 DPO - Nausea, I got a pimple which i rarely get and I didn’t sleep well that night (Temp dipped to 97.7 possible implantation dip or temp off due to poor sleep)
7 DPO - Cramps, diarrhea, tender breast and I felt a throbbing pain in my vagina in the afternoon (Temp spike to 98.3)
8 DPO - Nausea (Temp 98.0)
9DPO - Nothing (Temp dips to 97.9 and FF no longer have the data to support Ovulation based on my temps. I changed the setting to go by my +OPK instead of my temps because I’m confident that I ovulated. If I don’t get my period or get BFN i know that my cycle is changing....we’ll see)
10 DPO - I woke up with a terrible headache, heartburn and nausea (Temp 97.8)
11 DPO - Heartburn, tender breasts and nausea continues and I also have this terrible pain on both sides and my back. I’m not sure what’s causing this. It feels like I’ve been working out which i did not (Temp 97.9)
12 DPO - My period is expected today (i have a short leutal phase) and I’m praying that my temp doesn’t drop because of it does i know for sure AF is on her way (Temp stays at 97.9. I feel fatigue, pain in my thighs, tender breast, cramps, vagingal throbbing and nausea. I want to test but i cannot take another month of a BFN. Before coming home after work i break down and by a 2pk FRER. I take it as soon as i get home and just like that i get a faint BFP very quickly. I didn’t even have to squint to see it. I’m calling my OBGYN in the am to schedule my scan and I’ll take the second test in the am to see if the line gets darker. I’m excited and so scared at the same time. This is the best Christmas gift EVER!

I hope this helps one of you ladies. I’m praying that my little bean stays put for the next 36.5 weeks. Good luck and God bless.

Low AMH + chronic disease diagnosis - conceived on second IUI

I wanted to share my story to give someone else hope, as these stories gave me hope during some dark times. I am 36, and my husband is 50 now. We were a year younger when we tried to conceive - from April 2016 to July 2017. Here’s a general timeline:

April - Sept 2016
Tried lots of things to get pregnant - tracking, temping, ovulation strips, sex every day/every other day/twice a day, acupuncture, all sorts of supplements. No luck. Did find out I had a shorter luteal phase (8-10 days), so gyno prescribed progesterone suppositories to use after ovulation. Lengthened luteal phase but still no luck.

Oct 2016 - Jan 2017
Got tested at fertility clinic. Initial tests showed low AMH for me (.4) and low motility for my husband (31%). Subsequent testing showed even lower AMH for me (.2) but great results for my husband. (Not sure if his first test was a fluke but between tests he kept his cell phone out of his front pants pocket and started taking various supplements)

Feb 2017
Made a plan to start IUI + Clomid next cycle. Mentioned to fertility doctor that I’ve seen blood in my stool regularly for a few weeks, but my regular doctors said it was nothing to worry about. Fertility doc urges me to see a gastroenterologist ASAP to rule out anything serious before we start fertility treatment.

March 2017
See gastroenterologist, get colonoscopy, am diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Luckily it is not too severe, and medicine curbs symptoms almost immediately.

April - May 2017
Delay fertility treatment, not really TTC as I wait for my body to heal a bit and adjust to new medicine. Also changed jobs to a much less stressful position.

June 2017
First round of IUI + Clomid. Thrilled to have two ready eggs at ultrasound and awesome sample from husband. Trigger shot to release eggs, progesterone suppositories to support after insemination. Super sad to get a negative pregnancy test but doctor was pleased with my body’s performance so we decide to try the same thing again.

July 2017
Second round of IUI + Clomid. 2 eggs again and a slightly less awesome sample from my husband, trigger shot, progesterone. Only thing I did differently this time was meditate daily - including for 10 minutes directly after insemination - using the Circle & Bloom guided meditation series.

July 21, 2017
Got first positive pregnancy test ever!! 2 weeks later, saw a tiny little heartbeat on my first ultrasound.

I could not believe it worked, mostly because I had absolutely NO symptoms during the TWW. Every month prior to this, I convinced myself that I was pregnant during the TWW. This month, I was sure I wasn’t. The only strange thing I noticed the day before I took my positive test was slightly bluer veins in my breasts, but I was pretty sure I imagined it.

I am now on the cusp of my third trimester, and the pregnancy has been smooth sailing so far (knock wood!). We are expecting a little boy at the end of March 2018.

I wish all of you the very best of luck, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that you will get your BFP very soon!

Unsure of Symptoms By DPO

Hi Ladies!
I wanted to come on here and share my story for those of you who are impatient, frustrated, and fed-up!

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since June 2017. Not an incredibly long time, I know, but feels like eons for someone like me! Each month was one BFN after another and I couldn't take the constant disappointment.
I started monitoring at a fertility clinic, which was the best decision I ever made! Why? Because they took all the guess work out of this already calculating process.
For 2 months, I went in day after day for blood work and ultrasound until they told me i was ovulation and should dtd. Once you do, they prescribed me Prometrium vaginal supplements to assist with my luteal phase. I was on Prometrium beginning 1 DPO for 2 cycles which can cause pregnancy-like symptoms. Also, keep in mind, I am the worst symptom spotter! I get lost in message boards. Anyway were my symptoms prior to getting BFP while on Prometrium:

Nov 27th 1 DPO: No symptoms. Started Prometrium morning and night
2 DPO: no symptoms
3 DPO: mild pressure in lower stomach and upper vag towards end of day. Thinking it may be a tummy ache and too early for symptoms
4 DPO: Increase in CM by end of day. Probably the Prometrium
5 DPO: Chunky cottage-cheese-like CM. Probably the Prometrium
6 DPO: No symptoms. CM returned to normal
7 DPO: cramps and bloating but chalked it up to eating bad food
8 DPO: left boob a little sore near armpit, but not to the touch. Might be in my head
9 DPO: boobs slightly sore on and off
10 DPO: boobs slightly sore and weird sharp pain to the right of my belly button on and off
11 DPO: boobs slightly sore. mild cramps by end of day
12 DPO: boobs slightly sore
13 DPO: slightly sore boobs, dull headache. Boobs look a little bigger but probably in my head
14 DPO: tired but i just made a big brunch for my family. Boobs slightly sore
December 11th 15 DPO: Upper and middle back hurting, boobs slightly sore, dry CM, cervix low, hard, and closed. Went in to the clinic this morning for my blood test and they called to tell me i'm 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant! I'm in shock I got my BFP!!! It's so unreal to me but I wanted this message board to be the first place, the first people I tell about my pregnancy (I will surprise my husband tonight). Boards and sites like these were so incredibly helpful and insightful and not only got me through the dreaded 2ww, but the 9 months we tried to conceive.

Ladies, I urge you to share your stories and symptoms because it truly helps those going through the process!

If anyone has questions, please let me know!

Second bfp with same EDD as first child :)

First of all, thanks everyone for posting your stories! They give hope and help pass the time in the dreaded TWW :)
So, I'm 30, DH is 33 and we are happy not to have encountered difficulties in our TTC journey so far. We have a 16m old son, who is now going to have a little brother/sister next year :)
With my son things happend quickly, I got pregnant during the second TTC cycle. My only symptom was breast tenderness (when poking only) from around 4dpo and got a positive midday on 10dpo. With this one I expected the same. We started trying in June 2017 and I stopped breastfeeding in September. I got my first PPAF in July after stopping Cerazette (many horror stories about it on the internet, but I took it for 10 months and no complications coming off!) My cycles were 28-34 days but I suspected a short LP (around 10-11 days). A new (compared to before my first pregnancy) post ovulation symptom for me was nausea (got me excited a couple of times, booo!).

Here are my symptoms the second time around:
Cd21 ovulation (pretty uncomfortable ovary cramps, a bit like gas pain but only once a month :)
We bedded for a week before it and on the day of O.
From 2dpo nausea came (as usual for me), mild af cramps (a new symptom) and no breast or nipple pain (had it in previous cycles so I started hoping that maybe this is it ;)
7dpo my toothpaste tasted wierd
8dpo tested with FRER and faint BFP (stared at some BFNs before so was sure there was a line)

Retested in the coming days and it grew darker! DH doesn't know yet, easier to wait for and plan the announcement with #2 ;) Funny thing is my LMP starting day is Sept 25 just like with my son. Maybe I'll give birth the same day? Lol Good luck to you ladies and baby dust to everyone!

2nd times a charm

Basic stats:
Age 32
Mirena removed 8/26
Cycle 2 post Mirena

Background:
Husband and I decided to start trying a bit on a whim, but I started doing research immediately. Read "expecting better" then on recommendation in the book read "taking charge of your fertility." Started tracking with Glow app, following cm, bbt (vag) and using opks. CP all over the place.

Story:
Cycle one lasted 49 days, CD39 ovulated and short LF. Was using clear blue advanced for first half and was high but not peak for 10 days, never had ewcm and doubted I ovulated. Thanks to the books I knew what was happening later when cm picked up and tested with cheapy opks to track ovulation. Confirmed with bbt. Got period day 10 but learned a great deal. Wonder if delayed ovulation was due to a trip right when it should have happened based on CBA opk.

Following cycle switched to vaginal bbt which I found easier to do consistently. Tracked with cheap okp from CD7. Had a positive on 13 with ewcm but bbt never rose so kept waiting.

CD17: opk -, creamy cm, bd
CD18: opk -, ewcm
CD19: no opk, ewcm, bd
CD20: opk + (night), ewcm, bd, suspect ovulation (traveling, missed temp)
1dpo: opk +, ewcm, bd, temp rise, sore bb
2dpo: opk -, creamy cm, sore bb
3: sore bb
4: bb pain increases, swollen bb
5: bb huge and painful. In evening blue veins appear on them
6: bb enormous and so painful. Hungry
7: bb same, plus stabbing sensation. Sensitive to smells - cologne of coworker nauseating
8: bb continue, sharp pain in groin 2x when stand up from couch, metallic taste in mouth beginning in afternoon continuing all day
9: bb awful and veins more pronounced, some metal taste, creamy slightly stretchy cm
10: wake up at 3am and then 4am, can't fall back asleep. Lay in bed reading bfp stories here!! Bb awful, more metal taste. Hungry and bloated

Had negotiated with my husband that would test 12dpo am, but on 10dpo pm used the countdown to pregnancy stats of positive by time of day to sell him on it being far enough along. Took an opk and it was negative and worked up courage to test with frer- BFP! Solid line no question!

So happy to be pregnant and really glad in 2 cycles as I hated the tww with a fiery passion. Think the difference maker was knowledge - knowing how to read the signs made it easy to plan and gave me confidence in the process, which made me less crazy. Also used Pro-Gest cream 2x daily as I was worried about short luteal phase. Going to continue until see a doctor.

First pregnancy so excited! So scared! So hoping it all goes well! Good luck everyone!!

Natural BFP After Vasectomy Reversal, Over 40, Low Progesterone, Short Luteal Phase

My husband had a vasectomy reversal (almost 7 years after the vasectomy) and I got pregnant within a few months at 41 years old but unfortunately miscarried at 11 weeks (although it likely happened much sooner and was just missed). I then had a chemical pregnancy a few months later. Two cycles later I got pregnant a third time, still at 41 years old, and I am now 20 weeks along. I will be 42 at delivery. All genetic testing, ultrasounds, etc. have shown that we are having a healthy baby girl.

We believe that God controls conception, but there are things we did as well:

-used Magnesium lotion at bedtime
-cut out almost all dairy and soy
-took OvaBoost
-took FertileCM
-used BioRay Kids toxin remover
-used Clary Calm, Clary Sage, or Radiant Womb essential oil from day 4 to ovulation
-used Pro-Gest progesterone cream after ovulation, since I was diagnosed with low progesterone
-used Thyme essential oil after ovulation
-took Utericalm for the first trimester
-took Fertilitea
-took Maca pills
-took 2000mg Vitamin C
-took B6 complex, one of many things I took to try to lengthen my short luteal phase
-took Vitex
-used royal jelly in smoothies
-took Magnesium pills
-took 1200mg Calcium
-ate foods high in Magnesium, B6, Zinc, and Vitamin C
-ate pineapple core for 5 days post ovulation
-went to the chiropractor weekly
-stopped running and walked instead, since I have a low BMI
-prayed a lot
-had sex every day for several days prior to ovulation plus one day after (I charted my temperature, monitored my cervical fluid, and used ovulation tests so that I would know when I ovulated.)
-used small amount of coconut oil for lubricant during sex

I know it sounds like I did a lot, but it really wasn't a huge deal, especially considering what some women go through.

Symptoms:
2 DPO: sharp pains in uterus
6 DPO: sharp pains in ovary area
7 DPO: food aversions, strong sense of smell
8 DPO: tiny amount of pinkish beige in cervical fluid
9 DPO: strong sense of smell with nausea from it; light positive on Wondfo pregnancy test
11 DPO: tiny amount of darker beige in cervical fluid; darker positive on Wondfo pregnancy test

Do not give up hope. God is above all of the negative over 40 information out there. And although my story isn't exactly picture perfect, I did manage to get pregnant naturally 3 times in less than a year, all over 40. My midwives and doctors have all been supportive and told me several stories about themselves or their patients having successful pregnancies over 40. 3 of my sisters-in-law all had babies in their 40s. I think it is much more common than we hear about. May God bless you with the gift of a child, and peace while you wait.

When the time is right, it will happen!

Eight months of trying and I was starting to question everything and feel overwhelmed with fertility information --Am i taking the right vitamins? Taking pineapples for implantation (just the core!)? Pre-seed? Laying down for 30 min after BD? So many things to think about. And then one morning, a faint, very faint line. I. could. not. believe. it. But here I am 5 days after my first BFP feeling so happy and wanted to share any information with you girls.

Background: I'm really healthy and thought getting pregnant would be a breeze (how wrong I was!) After starting temping each morning I realized my luteal phase was only 9 days. The month I got my BFP was the first month I started taking 200mg of progesterone, orally, after ovulation. I think this was the main factor that contributed to my BFP.

1-5DPO: Nothing.
6DPO: Light cramping. This is normal for me as I always get cramping around this time
7DPO: Still light cramping, thinking AF is on her way. Literally told my husband that I was 99.7% sure I wasn't pregnant this month.
8DPO: Went to the bathroom and had VERY light pink. I just thought I was going to start my period very early this month and was bummed. But I think this was implantation bleeding. Also had temp drop this day.
9DPO: Temp back up. Still light cramping
10DPO: Cramping, took my first test and had a pretty obvious Evap line. But this got me excited!
11DPO: Took a test and the faintest of faint BFP!
12-15DPO: No big changes. Have had very light cramping on an off since 6dpo but nothing major and BFP getting darker. BBs are getting more sore. I've had a lot of CM for the past week. And STARVING all day!

What I think made a difference: For me the Progesterone really helped keep little bean nice and happy. Also we used less pre-seed during BD and just tried to naturally get things going. Also eating healthy! I don't drink alcohol or any caffeine and have cut back on processed foods to try to keep hormones balanced.

It will happen! Stay positive, love yourself and the amazing things your body can do. And I liked to remind myself "Your body was made to do this! You got this girl!" :) xxoo

BFP after 3 miscarriages in a row

It is with caution that I share my story. I suffered 3 chemical pregnancies since Oct 2016. Oct, Dec, and most recently May of this year. I have one 2.5 y.o. daughter. I acquired a gluten intolerance after giving birth to my daughter. Long story short, I was very sick for nearly 2 years after her birth; colds, flus, illnesses left and right, ER visits, Gyno visits, you name it! I couldn't have sex due to pain and infections. It hurt. I felt terrible almost every day. We decided to try for another baby anyway. We started trying Sept 2016 and I got pregnant in Oct! It ended... Tried again almost right away and boom, got pregnant in Dec! It ended...After the 2nd m/c I decided I needed to see a specialist. That's when gluten came up in one of the talks with the doctor. I gave it up and BAMMMM, I instantly felt amazing. Lost weight. Looked awesome AND I could have pain free sex!!! Started trying again in March 2017 and fell pregnant in May! I felt great! I felt symptoms! I thought this is it! But, the lines on my hpts began to fade....a day at a time....just like both times before. I went for bloodwork and sure enough, the numbers weren't doubling. I m/c within a few days...I. was. crushed. My marriage was suffering, my hormones were raging, I thought I can't do this anymore. But, we kept pushing. We couldn't give up. I got a new Gyno (LOVE her). She did more testing...everything NORMAL, as usual. So why is this happening???? We started trying again in June, and I got pregnant in July! 7/25/17 to be exact. The exact week we conceived my daughter 3 years ago, my husbands birthday week...haha. I decided NO bloodwork - don't need the stress. I started taking progesterone that my new doc prescribed me - just in case. Here's my info:

Day of Ovulation: strong positive OPK, did the deed!
1 DPO: negative OPK, did the deed anyway!
2: Nothing
3: Left pelvic pain, woke to pee at night (never do that!), so tired, thick white cm
4: Nipples sore
5: Super hungover, felt like barfing, celebrated husband's birthday, had friends over
6: Boobs feel strange today, waves of nausea, husband thinks I'm preggo!
7: Had dream I was pregnant! Had to pee so bad in morning. Headache, cranky, acne
8: Nothing logged
9: Faint BFP on FRER! Sense of smell is crazzzzy. Sharp uterus pains (implantation?), headaches, bloated, acne
10: Clear positive on FRER! Sore throat. Exhausted! Almost cried listening to a song on the radio, and it wasn't even a sad song...
11: Sore throat, sore nipples, cleaned my whole house!
12: BM was very strange, almost, but not really diarrhea (tmi), joint pain (so weird), nausea, EXHAUSTED and asleep by 8pm, again!
13: BFP is getting darker!!! Feeling reassured. Cramps, nausea, SORE nipples. Do. Not. Touch!
14: Took ClearBlue Digital and "pregnant" appeared almost immediately!
15: Darker BFP, nausea, SORE and hard nipples, EXHAUSTED.

Fast forward...I am now 25 DPO and the test line on hpts is now SO, SO, SO dark. I'm scheduled to see my doc on 9/9/17. I'll be past 8 weeks. I'll continue to feel cautiously optimistic about this news until I hear my little baby's heartbeat! I hope my story gives any and all women who have had multiple miscarriages, chemical pregnancies, etc, HOPE to not give up! Never give up! No matter what happens, at least you can say you tried your best. Baby dust to all! xoxo
