BFP with No Symptoms

BFP with little to no symptoms

So I just wanted to share with you the big news! I got my BFP !!! TTC #6 months So what felt different this month is that I didn't get sore boobs, no moody spells or any cramping that I would usually get before AF. The only thing that was different this month was alot of CM 2dpo for about 5 days or so. So I'm 12dpo now and I've been getting pains the last 2 days and I'm like hmm.. dam AF is about to arrive anytime. But the pains weren't consistent with PMS pains, but still had the overall feeling there! So stopped by the shop, picked up a PG test. I had tested about 4 days earlier due to sheer excitement, but came back negative. I wasn't too bummed about it because I knew it was too early to test, but I couldn't help myself. BFP came late afternoon today! So over the moon. So now it's just the wait till the 12 week mark that I can tell my family! I'm hoping everything will go well. BTW, I love reading everyone's stories on here. It's what got me through the TWW, and gave me so much hope!! Thankyou all, much love xx

BFP after 5 BFN and a miscarriage

I wanted to return to help others as this form was my go to during my 2ww. I tested and got 5 BFN with the last one being just 2 day before my period should have started. I decided to test again after my period was late by 2 days and received my BFP. This is my first pregnancy after a miscarriage in March 2018. I had symptoms but not many so I just caulked it up to allergies and my period due soon. I believed all the negative test because my breast where not sore and that normally is my first sign, I didn’t get sore breast till the day my period was due. I did have a sore throat about a week prior but again its allergy season so it was nothing abnormal. I decided not to spend all the money on ovulation test as I had with the last miscarriage and just use the Glow app, I got pregnant on my first month trying. The only reason I tested the last time was because I had started cramping and it was for a few days. When Im going to start I cramp and start in the same day so I knew something was different. I hope this helps those who have gotten a BFP but just feel its not accurate or lost a baby and are trying again. Im super anxious and pray that all goes well this time, my doctor seen me today to start lab work to hope if I do need anything they can help.

BFP after 5 BFN and recent miscarriage

I wanted to share my story to give hope to those who may need it, I myself read this blog often and found it helpful. I recently had a DNC in March due to a miscarriage. My husband and i decided to wait a little while before trying again so we finally decided to kinda of try in August. I did not buy ovulation test i only went off the glow app. I didn't really have any symptoms and tested with a BFN so I was certain I was out. I tested 5 times with the lastest at 13 DPO and still BFN, I decided to test again two days later and I got my first BFP and at this point I was about 2 days late for my period. I didn't get many symptoms till it was time for my period so I really felt they were not due to pregnancy. The only thing I felt was a sore throat about 4 days before my BFP, i now have sore breast. I'm so excited and nervous and just pray this pregnancy goes well and it's my rainbow baby.

BFP TWW CYCLE#3 Not Many Symptoms!!!

Hi there all!!! Had to post on this site bc like many of us read this site and feel it is only fair to return and add our story as well once we have our own to tell!!! Well long story short we started trying 3 months ago and already have two beautiful daughters age 11 and 4. I am about to be 31 soon and want more kids and finally talked my DH into giving me another. (I told him I wanted to be pregnant before I turn 31) crazy how life works! Anywho here goes my pretty uneventful two week wait! EWCM-hurried up and hopped in bed to “tuck Dh in” lol (he did not know I was tracking anything) Positive OPK next two days! (BD ABOUT 3X during these 2 days) 1-5DPO NOT MUCH just watery cm that turned to creamy 5-8DPO FULL BREAST (no soreness or pain or tenderness) and on 8dpo I had a temp drop 9-10dpo temp rose back up and stayed steady and on 9dpo I had lots of creamy thin milky cm that went away next day... nipples looked PUFFY and they looked like they had a darker hue around the outsides of the areaolas (room test both days and NEG!!!) but at evening time I did take one more Wal-Mart first signal test and it looked like a huge dye run so I put it away and didn’t look at it again until about midnight and rinsed it off with a q-tip “just to see” and lo and behold all that was left was a dark second line same thickness! (Went to bed excited and confused lol) 11DPO woke up and took a FRER AND IT WAS BFP (faint but def there!!!) I am still in shock bc I had NO CRAMPS AND NO PAINS AND NO SPOTTING! I actually had no symptoms except for the puffy nipples lol and I thought I was out bc I wasn’t feeling anything like so many women say they do and all of these sites! Remember we are all different and all will feel different! So don’t worry or give up just yet bc you don’t feel like this or that person!

For me, this is nothing short of a miracle...

Well I’ll be damned. I’m practically speechless. I truly didn’t believe several aspects of our situation were true. But turns out, all of those stories I’ve heard are possible. We tried for over a year with our first, DS and ended up having to get fertility testing done. The conclusion the endocrinologist came to was “unexplained infertility”. We proceeded straight to IVF, considering IUI is not very affective at all with our diagnosis. We conceived DS our first attempt. Amazing. We were over the moon. I had an incredible pregnancy and my little guy is incredible. We are just so thrilled. BUT... we wanted more! So, we decided we were ready to start trying again. We decided to attempt on our own for two months, and proceed with IVF yet again, if we were unsuccessful. Well! lol and behold! Our very first month trying. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that “yes+”. Let me give you the low down... firstly I want to say, that I NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING WERE “SYMPTOMS”. I FELT NO DIFFERENT!!!!! At ALL!!!! Felt more symptoms on months that I wasn’t pregnant. CD 10, 11 and 12- EWCM, bd on CD 12 ONLY!!!! Didn’t even know if I was ovulating for sure. When in doubt, BD with all EWCM!!!! CD 13, 1dpo, 2dpo, 3dpo- O cramps (which iv never had before) 4dpo, 5dpo, 6dpo- constipated, but so was DH... something we ate?? Didn’t eat? 7dpo- smallish glob of white creamy/sticky cm. Didn’t recall ever having this (this was really the only sign that MAY have tipped me off a little) 8, 9dpo- tiny bit of ewcm when wiping. Tested BFN (I thought this was 9dpo but it was actually 8dpo when I tested) Today I saw someone having a grilled cheese and tomato and NEEDED one! But I never pulled the idea out of my head. I never considered this a “craving” with my first pregnancy, but in retrospect, these were my cravings. Only when I SAW someone eating something. 10dpo- tested fmu BFN. Thought for sure I was out. Headache (but didn’t sleep well and had a glass of wine) 11,12dpo- nothing 13dpo- tiny pinhead red dot when I checked my cervix (I always thought this was people exaggerating!) had cramping after this check from irritating it but it dissipated in a few minutes. Ovia app says to test. I’m too scared. So used to BFNs... 14dpo- small amount of buggery pink tinged cm. I get this EVERY time I’m about to get AF. Thought for sure I was out. 15dpo- nothing at all... hmmm... tested at 1pm with FRER digital, after peeing all day and BAAM! BFP!!!!!! Unreal. I was in utter shock! Waited like 5min for the damn thing to show up! But it was real!!! I always thought that any spotting at all the day before and the day AF was due (especially with no other symptoms to speak of) meant AF for sure. It’s happened to me a million times where I thought that I could still be pregnant after spotting 13,14dpo... and I’d always get AF. But this time!!!! AND, I’ve heard so many stories of women getting pregnant naturally after infertility, but me??? And the FIRST try!!?!!??? Nothing short of a miracle. Can’t wait to tell my husband. I wish the very best of luck to all of you. And PLEASE, ignore family and friends, and if you want it bad enough, do WHATEVER it takes to get YOUR baby! ❤️❤️❤️ Feel free to email me!

34 Years Old. TTC #3 for 11 months. BFP

Hey everyone.... I am on here sharing again for the 2nd time. My first time sharing was after struggling with secondary infertility in 2015. I have a pretty amazing background testimony preceding this pregnancy and if you have time feel free to look it up. Was entered Oct / 2015 and I believe it was titled "our testimony". It is way more action packed than this entry! So hubby and I have been trying for about 11 months after having our 2nd child. Nothing was happening. We sold our home and moved into my parents while waiting for our house to be built and I had noticed I didnt really have a period since April. Not really anything new for me, my cycles are always irregular. I had some spotting at the end of June for 3 days but again, not out of the norm so I didn't think too much about it. Thought it was just another wonky cycle with no ovulation. Anyways so then July 16th I have some light pink spotting when I wipe and it only lasts that night. The next morning I wake up and realize I threw my shoulder out along with my neck and it's so painful! I tell myself I will buy some muscle relaxants on the way home. So I stopped by wal mart and thought what if I am pregnant? Maybe I should rule it out before taking these. So I go home and POS and its blazing a positive line before the control line shows up. I was so happy but I am also confused. How long have I been pregnant? I spotted late June as well so it's hard to tell. I also have had very little symptoms... I have had no nausea, no breast pain just some mild heaviness, but one thing that did strike me as odd was a few weeks ago I felt like there was a lot of pulling and stretching behind my belly button. Something I usually get after 4 months... I attributed it to lifting my toddler and maybe tweaking something and to this day by abdominal muscles are slightly achy and behind my belly button and also since i found out i have had lower aching in my back. Might be because I know I am pregnant now but I swear I noticed more symptoms after finding out. I have a doctor's appointment booked for Monday and hopefully I will be able to find out how far along I am around then:) Anyhow I just feel so thankful after our struggle to be able to be pregnant again. I'm thankful to God and the plans he has for each one of us. I hold the women on this site very dear to my heart and I know how torturous the wait can be. Praying you all see your BFP soon!

12DPO BFP! The crazy things ive done this TTC cycle

Hi Lovely ladies, I have been endlessly searching through forums such as this one since my DH and i decided to TTC in Feb, foolishly we thought it wouldnt take us long to get pregnant (people who say oh you will catch so quick when you come off the pill LIE!! haha) so every cycle i try and add a few new crazy things ive read from other peoples BFP stories, which is why i felt i should post mine.. whether these things worked or this month was just our month i dont know but it certainly didnt hurt! So from my period ending to Ovulation i drank 2 glasses of watered down POM (100% Pomegrante juice) i had read that this thickens the lining making it more inviting for a egg, i also read a bit about acupuncture and about having a warm womb... so from period to ovulation i would put a lavender wheat bag that had been heated up in the microwave on my stomach for at least half an hour once a day, i also wore socks all the time as with the acupuncture they say warm feet warm womb :) I used clear blue ovulation sticks which this month did not work! i got to CD17 and still no smiley face so after running out of the CB sticks and coming to terms with possibly not ovulating this month i thought would buy some ovulation sticks of Amazon 30 + 10 PG tests for £6, i used a ov strip on CD18 and had a dark test line although not as strong as the control line so i continued to use them and noticed the line get later, suggesting i had already ovulated and CB missed it!! Thankfully we had BD every other day from the end of my period and also occasionally used Conceive plus. Because of the ovulation confusion, i also had a temp drop and then spike CD12/CD13 so i really had no clue but took the ov strips info as i had ovulated around CD17, this cycle i was also really keen to try the pineapple core theory however its supposed to be from 1-5DPO and at this point i was possibly 4DPO, but through some googling had seen it was ok up to day 7 so i had the pineapple from 4-7DPO. i had a busy weekend so didnt pay attention to much and with FF saying i had OV CD19 i just tried to not stress then - 7DPO (classing CD17 as ov) i noticed my left breast had increased in size as had the nipple, it was a tad sore but nothing much 8DPO i got a few spots on my chin which i dont normally get 10DPO after BD when i wiped i noticed alot of pink tinged CM which i assumed was the start of AF, later that day i got a raging headache which i never get but again put it down to the heat in the UK at the mo which i also blamed on a few nights of awful sleep 11DPO i thought i would just try one of these tests, i had read headaches, spots, pink after BD, swollen breasts could all be signs.... i thought i could see the faintest ever barely a line but thought it was me wishing too hard so i threw it away.... that day after a BM there was bright red blood and i thought definitely AF but then nothing... so the next day i took another test and the line was darker!! so im now 14DPO and had my 3rd day of clear positives! So im planning to tell DH tonight now i know its not a fluke! Anyway i hope this helps 1 person as these forums helped me, gave me hope and now i get my own story to share :)

BFP with regular PMS symptoms

Hello! First- that picture has a lot more clear positive line in the HD pic. 32 y/o obese woman with very regular, but long (29-31 day) cycles. I had an abdominal myomectomy for LARGE fibroids in Nov last year (8 months ago). They were all perdunculated so my uterus wasn't cut. Period came back in February (took FOREVER) and then... I would say this (june-july)was the first month we started trying, since we decided after I ovulated in May to start, so I don't think it counts. We had a lot of BDing in my fertile week with Preseed. I used to ovulate tests for fun and we didn't BD the night I was positive- my vagina was tired. Oh, and I started taking prenatal vitamins probably in April at my doctors suggestion. Tested this morning, first day of my would be period- CD 31. Usually I can notice some blood before my period for a few days because I look super hard- this month, I had some bleeding on likely 12 dpo but it was just there when I specifically checked my cervical mucus. I've been checking a lot and could have irritated my cervix, or it could have been implantation but... Well you'll see why I don't think it was. So all the days this month, my symptoms have been mostly normal. I get the lot of them- nausea, cramping, minor headaches, sore boobs, hunger, emotional instability, constipation, etc. So here's the difference. At 7dpo I had cramps mid afternoon. I felt like I had to poo, and while I could a little the pain wasn't going away. It was around my belly button and into my abdomen. After an hour I laid in bed with tears of frustration and pain. It was intense. After 2.5 I considered the hospital. Then, after 3 hours, I felt gas move and the pain lessened. For the next four days I had minor belly button pains and (normal) constipation. I don't know if it was implantation or anminor blockage. it's never happened to me before. I think back on it- some years ago I had them take a sample of my endometrial lining and it hurt so bad I cried; the doctor thought I was nuts- so let's just say I'm a wuss or my uterus is very sensitive. And recently I noticed I am not having night sweats. Usually the days leading up to my period I wake up soaked in sweat. I didn't. I didn't think much of it, though- especially because I stopped being constipated, which happens the closer to get to my period. So I'm checking for blood 2 days ago and get a smidge in my CM at night. Nothing coming out- I literally touched my cervix to check. The next morning there was some tiny bit when I checked- all pink- and after that there was none. I continued to obsessively check my CM and it got very very white and creamy. My cervix was medium height, and felt like it might've been open but I don't know I can't tell. It was soft though! I recommend not being so obessive because although I washed my hands before every time my vaginal canal is getting burn-y/irritated. It's very sensitive. Peed on a stick when I woke this morning and honestly I can barely wrap my mind around it. My uterus has been sore today, sensitive, I keep having to pee and I'm light headed and nauseated. That's my story and I hope it helps :) I can't tell anyone but DH it's only 4 weeks so Im so elated and hopeful and trying not to worry that anything will go wrong.

BFP with NO Symptoms!

Hi Everyone! This is my first time contributing to a board. I just wanted to give some hope to anyone who is feeling down. I've done 4 IUIs and got a BFP twice. I miscarried in my first one (that was tough). I'm currently 5 wks pregnant. I had different symptoms in my 2ww for each pregnancy. 1st IUI (miscarried) - I felt so tired 12dpo. I yawned like every 2 minutes. I couldn't keep my eyes open. 14dpo I had frequent urination. Those were my only 2 symptoms really. 2nd IUI - No symptoms at all. I was 110% sure I was not pregnant. No exhaustion, no frequent urination, no breast tenderness, nothing. I was pretty upset and disappointed. After the 2ww I went to get my beta tested AAAAAAAND I got a BFP!!! I was shocked and surprised. Didn't not expect it. I also have an older child. That pregnancy I had similar symptoms as my first IUI. No question about it that I was pregnant then! If you are in your 2WW, please try to be positive. I know it feels like forever. I don't recommend you doing a HPT because you might get a false negative, vice versa. Each pregnancy is different. Just because you don't have any symptoms now, doesn't mean you are out. I was one of the people who would go online and read read read! I was crazy trying to analyze every symptoms possible.

Third Times a Charm

Hi Ladies! Stalked this board for the past 4 months and promised myself to share my own story as reading through these boards really helped comfort me during the TWW. Little bit about me- I am 26 years old and my fiancé is 34. I had been on the pill since I was 18 years old and just went off in January 2018. My first period was 5 days late and then next cycle I was right back on track. I have a 28 day cycle and AF always shows up on time. We weren’t actively trying as soon as I got off the pill- we decided because we were moving into our new home end of march that we would begin trying after my period in early April. I definitely thought it was going to be super easy and that it would happen the first time no problem, so when AF showed up right on time it was a big bummer. I cheered myself up and reminded myself that it takes most couples a year- I decided no more tears until at least 4 months of trying. AF showed up the second time right on time again. My only main concern was that since being off the pill I have not had ANY EWCM. We used Pre-seed every time we BD the first month, and did the deed every night 5 days up to the big O and 2-3 days after to be safe. Here’s what we did this time round: Decided to not buy any OPK’s. B/c my cycle is already regular I knew approx when I would ovulate and decided to not get caught up in waiting for that smiley face to appear. We BD every night for a week leading up to ovulation. I had been taking prenatals since April but this month started taking an additional B12/B6 vitamin everyday as well. For the week leading up to OV i started taking evening primrose oil (supposed to help with CM) I started the dose low- 100mgs right after my period ended and then 300mgs two days before O and the day of. I suspected I ovulated June 16th but had no symptoms but I stopped the primrose oil that day. I also had freshly squeezed grapefruit juice everyday for the week leading up to O (also supposed to help with CM) I still had no EWCM in my in underwear during my cycle- just creamy CM. However on the day I suspected I ovulated we BD and when he pulled out there was definitely EWCM on both of us (TMI, sorry) I only used Preseed on the day before O this time. AF was supposed to show her face June 29th and didn’t but I felt low dull cramping all day and new she was coming....but never did. The only symptom Ive had is sore boobs. My nipples always get tender before O and then feel better before AF. This time my boobs are quite tender at the sides near my armpits. The only other symptom I can think of is that I have been STARVING- I ate so much yesterday and nothing was satisfying me. Nothing other than that. I took a test last night (day AF was due) and got a BFN- Threw it in the garbage. Woke up this morning with still no AF- I checked the test in the garbage (dollar store test) and its a BFP!! I took a FRER and CBD this morning and both positive- 2 weeks. I go for a blood test on Wednesday. Keep your fingers crossed for me and good luck ladies!
