BFP after vacectomy reversal at 41

Shocked and Happy!

Wow!! Can't believe at 39 I am posting this here!! We were NOT trying to get pregant. We have three precious children and were content and trying to avoid pregnancy. God had other plans!! Had sex on CD7 around midnight. Started charting temperatures because I was a little concerned that I could get pregnant if I ovulated early. I ovulated between CD11-CD12. Not sure exactly because BBT didn't rise abruptly like it normally does. It was a slow rise. Gonna go with CD12 for now.

O day:97.3 Bad O pains hit around 3:30. Sore nipples immediately. Last day of EWCM
1DPO:97.5 Tiny bit CM pasty CM. Cervix closed/tilted. Sharp pain low pubic bone right side. Constipation.
2DPO:97.5 CM white/sticky/creamy but stretches and holds shape. Temp 99.2 afternoon.
3DPO:97.77 pasty CM, normal. Cervix closed. Ovaries feel strained/pulling. No breast or nipple tenderness. Got stung by two honey bees. Awesome.
4DPO:98.1 CM same.
5DPO:97.9 Lots white thick pasty creamy cm with some bits in it. Intermittent breast burning and feel kinda sore on sides like had done pushups. Periody feeling down low.
6DPO:98.1 Very white thick creamy CM my me of crumbly. Headache all day, dull. Increased sex drive
7DPO:97.9 Cm milky/creamy evening and some thick stretchy. Small twinge felt bladder located. Boobs aching on sides under armpits. Vaginal aches.
8DPO:98.03 Cm opaque/yellow ewcm. Boobs aching sides/armpits. Cramping to left of pubic bone area and above at night. Light vag aches.
9DPO:98.12 Few light twinges same place as yesterday. Light vag aches. Some very white/yellow thick snotty cm. Leaking colostrum??!?!? What? TEST BFN
10DPO:97.87 Vivid pregnancy dream involving telling my sister I was pregnant. Cm drying up. Late night:sharp shooting pain up crotch and rectum.
11DPO: 98.25 POAS and while waiting had sharp shooting pain up vag and rectum. Oh, and a BFP!!! Shocked!!! Take two more test, all positive. Husband in denial! Coming around now though!!

Didn't know sperm could live that long to be honest. Thought we were in a safe zone but obviously we weren't!! Husband had a vasectomy after our second was born and then reversed it five years later and we had our third who is almost 4. We were told his reversal was unsuccessful and we wouldn't be able to conceive. I was already pregnant when they told us that and now I am again!! God is great!!!! We would have never tried for another baby, but God has blessed us with one anyone!! A friend had told me last month that he loved all my kids and any other kids God may bless us with. I asked him why he said that and he said maybe Jesus laid it on his heart and here we are a month later! Wow!!! I also saw a baby in the clouds 2 weeks ago. stopped and took a picture! God speaks!! Awesome! Good luck to all of you ladies!! Trust God!!!

Vasectomy not reversed but now prenant with HCG 1,200 at 2ww!!

33 years ago I had a vasectomy after my 3rd child. Divorced & met my new love 15 years ago who is now 38. I'm now 63 years so it was time to make babies & of the two options it was either reversal or go for IVF. Elected for IVF. Didn't think it was possible but 6 months ago and after 20 minutes in an operating theatre a needle extracted millions of my swimmers. 100% painless, no after effects, bloody amazing. At same time the wife 'went under' & they retrieved 12 eggs. Our 1st try with a fresh 5day old blastocyst grown in the lab made it to 6 weeks with some medication assistance. The HCG at 2 weeks was 140, more good news at 6 weeks HCG was 1,500, BUT we were shattered as it just disappeared at ultra sound at 8 weeks. Our 2nd FET (frozen embryo transfer) ended up a zero result at 2ww. BUT 1 hour ago got the news that our 3rd FET after a 2ww was bloody positive & bloody fantastic. The reason for this post is that it is 1,200 HCG! This was 1 embryo, WTF (that's not an IVF acronym) no drugs, no tablets, no chemicals so does anyone know (other than a negative reason) is this normal? The missus has twins in her second line of cousins on both sides of family tree.

BFP at 40 yo 4th cycle TTC post IUD removal!! To God be the Glory!

I'm so happy to post here and I hope my experience helps others. It's still REALLY, really early (11DPO is my guess), but I've gotten positives on two different brands of tests (discussed below) testing yesterday twice and today once. I hope this is a sticky little guy! I've been reading these stories for a few months, each month hoping it was my month. Sorry this is so long, but I hope this helps someone who is going through the same thing as me. I hope it isn't TMI, but I wanted to be as specific as possible for anyone that is going through this too!

My husband had a vasectomy reversal Jan 2010. We conceived May 2010 with our first. She is now 4+ years old. I was 37 when she was born. We decided in Dec 2014 to try for #2...thought we weren't going to have a second one at all, so God completely changed our minds. I am 40 (and a half) and I was so worried that this would take a long time. DO NOT LET WHAT SOCIETY TELLS YOU ABOUT YOUR AGE ENTER YOUR MIND! IF IT'S GOD'S WILL, IT WILL BE! Luke 1:37 says "God can do anything!"

- I had my IUD removed Dec 18 and first period about 10 days later. I immediately started temping and enjoyed it at first...I had no idea that our bodies were so amazing! I also started taking Vitex, Maca, prenatal, folic acid. The first cycle post-IUD removal showed an ovulation on CD 17 and an 11 day luteal phase. I was grateful to know I was ovulating regularly! We flooded that egg, but we didn't catch it. I went to acupuncture weekly.

- Cycle #2 (February 2015) I added B6 and Vitamin E because I felt my lp was short. I O'd on CD17 again but had a 12 day luteal phase. Vitamins were helping!? Temps were very consistent pre-O, and rose after O, had some EWCM, but we still didn't catch the egg. I continued acupuncture. We used Pre-seed on occasion just to help me since we were BD so much.

- Cycle #3 (March 2015) I stopped going to acupuncture, but kept temping. I O'd again on CD17 and had a 13 day luteal phase. YAY! I added a natural progesterone cream application after O was confirmed because during my luteal phase I would always get a massive temp dip around 6dpo, and I was worried my progesterone was low. This month I used pre-seed with the inserts 3 times around O. We didn't catch the egg again, and this month i was SO disappointed. I thought we did everything right, and I thought to myself that I couldn't possibly keep this kind of sex life going for much longer. I was beginning to get frustrated with temping because I read every little bit into the slightest temperature shift, and I decided that next month, after O, I would stop temping until AF came to save my sanity.

- Cycle #4 (CD1 was March 26) I stopped the Maca. I felt that it was making me gain weight and pissing me off. I added Fertile CM because my EWCM used to be plentiful but ever since my IUD was removed I only had it for about 2-3 days with not as much as I used to. This month I added OPK's, per the OBGYN's suggestion. I bought internet cheapies and digitals. My plan was to use the IC's leading up to my LH surge, and once I thought it might be positive to also test using the digital. Well, I got a slightly positive OPK on an IC on April 7 (CD14) but neg on digital, so we BD that morning. I thought "great! I will O on my usual CD17, get a positive OPK on April 8 or 9, and we'll BD until we can't anymore and for sure we'll catch the egg!" Then on April 8, the OPK was not as dark as the day before. WTH!? And the next day, again not as dark. Basically, I missed my surge somehow. We BD on Wed April 8 at night, and that was it. I was so frustrated because I thought I was out this month. I also had majorly wonky temperatures because the day of the slightly positive OPK, I got sick and was put on antibiotics. I temped loosely to confirm that O occurred, and then I stopped. Because of being sick, I cannot pinpoint O day, but I know it was anywhere from CD14 to CD17.

BFP 4 months after hubs vasectomy reversal

Hi everyone, we are delighted to announce our BFP 11dpo.

My parter had his vasectomy reversed after 8 years, he had the op in sept 14 and here we are pregnant in Jan 15.

My first symptom, maybe only 2dpo was both of my breast leaked a very small amount of clear liquid.. This continued. I then had very sore tingly nipples, extremely sensitive and sore breasts too. Very vieny too!

About 6dpo I got the horrible taste in my mouth.. Awful, that went though, after a few days.

I wish everyone the best of luck.

We used clear blue ovulation sticks and got pregnant the first time using them. :-)))

Just a feeling I had

Like I'm sure many of you, I feel a ton of impatience when ttc, so I wanted to know the moment my body could tell me I was pregnant with baby #2. I used this board over the last few days, and I also consulted it before my first pregnancy, so I really wanted to contribute in case it helps any other 2wwers out there. This was our first month of 'not preventing', so I really didn't pay close attention to much until NYE, when I started to feel symptoms; hence, the dpo might be slightly off (but only by a day). I usually have a 28 day cycle, but last month's was randomly 30 days (first time ever since my daughter was born), so I assume that this month's was also 28 days. My period is due tonight/tomorrow a.m., but I got a bfp this afternoon.

1dpo- not paying attention, so nothing?
2dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
3dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
4dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
5dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
6dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
7dpo-not paying attention, so nothing?
8dpo-some af-type cramps. Really? This early? No spotting so far....seems unlikely. Could it be something else? :)

9dpo- NYE. Woke up with mild cramps again. Took temp for 'fun' immediately after waking. 97.8. Check old records from 1st pregnancy. I only charted for 1 week back then, but my temp was the exact same back during the week of implantation in 2012. Interesting. Watery cm. EWCM after bm - 2 tiny streaks of blood in it. No more after that for rest of day. Want to drink tonight, so pick up a test at the store. If it comes back -ve, I should be good to go (I know it sounds bad, but we didn't really bd a ton around O - only a few times, and I got up right away almost every time. def. not like last pregnancy!) BFN, so party is on! Feel great all night until just before bed. Hungry, so I eat all kinds of stuff, but nothing is very appealing. Feeling a little queasy, but nothing really notable unless you're paying attention.

10dpo-NYD. Woke up at 3 a.m. bed at 2:30 a.m. feeling nauseous. Had some drinks, but definitely didn't feel drunk going to bed. Can't be a hangover already! Back to bed. Restless and ran to washroom several times until 7:30, when I was violently ill with vomiting and diarrhea. I remembered a family friend who was violently ill after drinking when she was newly preggers but didn't know about it. Dh knows the story too, and we bought thought 'hmmmm'. Took a FRER - bfn. Still don't believe it. Just seems like it's happening. Dh notices veins on boobs are a little noticeable - same as last time! They are also sore (normal before af). Call me stupidly optimistic. watery cm.

11dpo-watery cm most of day. Became pinkish in colour after bd with dh. Kind of freaked out. AF on way?! I refuse to believe it.

12dpo-couldn't shake the feeling that I was pregnant. Dry most of the day, but some ewcm at night. Pink was completely gone when I woke up. Temp still high (97.8 this am). Some food aversions (like chocolate cake - seriously!? Who refuses chocolate cake?), so I went out to buy a dollar-store test. Sold out. Went to another Dollar Store. Sold out. Caved and bought a 2 pack of tests (oops- bought blue dye) from drug store on way home. Hope dh isn't mad. Instant VERY faint line, but looks like it could be an evap. line. DH thinks it could be the real deal. Darkens as time goes on, so I really think it's evap.

13dpo- Woke up with need to pee at 5:30 a.m. Don't want to get up, because I don't want to test till later. If I test now, I'll never fall back to sleep. In and out of sleep till 7:30am. Dream about +ve pregnancy test a couple of times. Have to pee soooo badly! Very faint bfp with fmu, but was with the 2nd blue dye test, so held urine for 4.5 hrs, had dh buy a FRER, and got a bfp.

A couple of years ago, we weren't even sure if we could have a baby (dh had a vasectomy). Try to stay stupidly optimistic, and be sure to have a healthy outlet for stress (and maybe the occasional unhealthy one - wine is great for this ;). Good luck.

PS. If you see something - no matter how faint - on a blue dye test within the allotted time (before 10 mins is up), go with it. It could be your bfp! I spent the last day looking a evap lines online, and became discouraged for nothing!

39 years old, BFP after 5 losses

We have 4 children and never had any problems getting or staying pregnant up to that point. (Although my husband had a vasectomy after our third and a reversal about 5 years later) After our 4th child though we had 5 heartbreaking losses. After the 5th loss, and by the advice of my doctor, I began taking daily a baby aspirin and 1000mcgs of Folic Acid. The first time I ovulated after taking those (for a couple of weeks) I was pregnant. I braced myself for our 6th early loss, especially because I had light spotting that would come and go, but thankfully we made it through the first trimester! While 4 of the losses we had before were around 5 weeks, one of them was at 12 weeks and so I was so thankful to get past the first trimester. I am now 7 weeks away from delivering our sweet baby girl and all has gone very well. I am still taking the baby aspirin; my doctor will have me stop in a few weeks. We are praising the Lord for another child and I hope that our story encourages others who have gone through multiple losses.

BFP at 15dpo 9 weeks after vecectomy reversal!

Hi thought I'd share my story. Only been ttc for 2 months. This will be baby #6!! My final baby! I have 5 boys already and while I was pregnant with my last, DH and I decided it would be best to get a vecectomy done. When my youngest was a year old we decided to try once more for a girl but would be happy with another boy, but this is defo the last!

1st month I didn't take any vitamins or exercise at all really. Bfn.

The next month I decided I was really gonna make the effort and decided to make sure I was healthy and in good shape to conceive so I walked 2 or 3 times a day, a mile each time, occasionally burnt off 150 cal on the crosstrainer and began taking 7 seas trying for a baby vitamins. (made me feel really good)

BD a couple times leading up to O and when O test was + we BD again and a couple days after.

At 8dpo I started testing every day (some times more than once) which was silly, I know. I had tender swollen boobs everyday up until day 11 when the swelling subsided. Had stabby pains in lower right side, occasional AF like cramps (just once or twice a day for a min) noticed veins on one boob and my chest at about 9dpo. defo felt pregnant! Tests kept coming back bfn! Tried 10mlu ic's and superdrug 10mlu cheapie and cb digital. Still bfn.
Then on 13dpo I took a superdrug test at night and it was bfn and I took an almighty strop like a toddler and cried coz I was so sure and finally let go that this wasn't my month.

The next morning I took a predictor test only because I had it left and I was due AF the day before and still nothing. Bfn... Until 10 mins later I could see a tiny line that I wasn't even sure was there, so later that day I took a FR, same again. Looked bfn until 10 mins later then really faint almost invisible line. They can't all be evaps, right? Next morning (15dpo) I took one more 1st response 6days early and again a faint line but darker and defo visible in any light at all. So there it is BFP with baby number 6, 9 weeks after vecectomy reversal.

He only had vecectomy for coming up 3 years so he didn't have it long. Very happy!

Don't give up hope. It's not over till AF shows! FX for all u ttc. Baby dust to all ***** ;) xxxx

Ps not a very good photo lol but it's all I had.

22 months of TTC, Hashimoto's, MFI

My husband had a vasectomy after our son was born as we were very young and had 2 babies under 13 months old. He had a reversal in April 2012. We tried for a year and no luck. Started getting hardcore after the year and got a semen analysis: 48 million total, 50% motility, 4% morphology. And then we tried everything, clomid, one IUI, meds for me, vitamins, Fertilaid, Countboost for hubby, I ate pineapple and took B6 for my spotting issues, etc. My RE suggested I might need a lap/hysteroscopy so I did one last July where he found one tube bent and the other full of debris. He said he wouldnt call it endo, but leftover scarring from a D&C I had to have after my son was born for retained placenta. I finally said God I give it all to you, there is nothing we can do on our own and tried to move on.

I stopped the clomid, prenatals, & deleted my fertility friend app. I won't say I didn't think about it or didn't hold out hope, and I still stalked the tww. I have hashimoto's disease (thyroid) also & take synthroid. This month I just knew something was going on because I spotted only once on 7ish dpo (implantation) and my boobs got sore as usual, then stopped. I always spot, like every time I wipe spot, at least 2-4 days before AF, all the way until she comes. I was dry as a bone down there and my boobs got sore again. After I gagged and almost threw up at the smell of hot dogs at my best friend's son's first birthday, I ran and got some dollar tree tests. I prayed and told God I trusted his master plan, and opened my eyes to a big fat BFP a day before I was supposed to start, at 7 pm at night! All that to say, GOD WORKS MIRACLES! Also, this cycle was super stressful as my husband's sweet Mamaw died on my birthday, and several friends & family had just found out they were expecting, which so many of you know, is so heartbreaking.

I think the symptom spotting can be a fun/obsessive way to pass the time, but what really gave me hope was stories like mine that beat the odds, so I pray it blesses someone and gives you something to hold onto on those hard TTC days.
