Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with No Symptoms

Bfp 3 months

So I wanted to post because this helped me so much during that awful wait. I had the Mirena iud removed in the beginning of January. Periods were regular by the end of February.

1-10 dpo- nothing at all felt more pregnant last month.

11 dpo I noticed a clear kind of white jelly like stretchy discharge. Thought this was weird because I didn’t have any of this the previous months and I was due for my period in 3 days

12 dpo pretty gassy and emotional

BFP 2 months trying!

So I wanted to post because this helped me so much during that awful wait. I had the Mirena iud removed in the beginning of January. Periods were regular by the end of February.

1-10 dpo- nothing at all felt more pregnant last month.

11 dpo I noticed a clear kind of white jelly like stretchy discharge. Thought this was weird because I didn’t have any of this the previous months and I was due for my period in 3 days

12 dpo pretty gassy and emotional. Had to pee more often then usual and wasn’t drinking all that much. Boobs sore but not terrible, definitely swollen. Usually my boobs really hurt right before my period so not weird for me.

13 dpo decided to test because of my discharge had me thinking I might be pregnant.

BFP!!!! Used first response digital that I had left over from last month and couldn’t believe it. Had more “symptoms” when I wasn’t pregnant.

BFP no symptoms

I’m 21 and my husband is 22. We have been ttc for 10 months and today I got my bfp!! I’ve been stalking this board for pretty much the whole 10 months and it has kept me Spain through many a tww so I thought I should share my story since I was a total symptom spotter and this month when I finally got my bfp I had pretty much no symptoms.

About 5dpo I did notice I had some acid reflux which I’ve never had before but it only lasted a few days so I don’t if it’s related.

Everything else was normal. I got my usual sore boobs about a week after O and now they feel fine.

I thought I was out and only took a test today because I was a day late and wanted to ease my mind and get ready for next cycle! I even just orders ovulation tests and Pre-Seed to try next month. Lol

Clear blue said 1-2 weeks so it’s still super early but I’m so excited and now am planning a way to tell hubby.

I’m so nervous as it’s so early but I’m praying for a sticky bean!

Baby dust to all and thank you for helping me get through the tww so many times!!

Still seems unreal

I read stories of BFP's of other ladies just to keep me going, and staying sane. So thought I will share my story and say that there is hope.

We had 7 unsuccessful attempts. Each time seemed worse than the previous one and my heart started sinking. I didn't want to go via yet another heartbreak, so after the last one I decided to have about 6mnts break. Enjoy Christmas and New year without injections and emotions flying high. It took us over 2 years for all the 7 attempts. We are both healthy, and I have been producing lots of eggs, which have made to freezing.
We have decided to have an endometrial scratch prior the latest transfer, and this time doctor suggested 2 embryos transfer.
After the latest transfer on the end of Feb 2018 I postponed the testing for 2 days and that morning I held going to toilet for about 4 hrs until I couldn't wait any longer.

My husband done the tests and I was convinced answer was going to be negative yet again.
WE had 5 positive tests. I sat down on the floor. Shock. Couldn't speak and tears just running down.

Clinic told us we will have to have 7 weeks scan, and they would expect to see a heartbeat at that time.

I couldn't believe it was true, and the worry in further weeks awaiting the 7 weeks scan was as bad as 2 weeks wait if not worse.

My hands were shaking and I couldn't talk to the nurse, just before the scan. We did see a heartbeat and now I can breathe :) And baby looked as it should. In my head I now know I am pregnant and over the moon with the happiness and miracle that we had waited for such a long time.

IVF journey makes you ever so grateful and appreciate each day with knowing there is a little baby growing inside you. Still feels unreal. But very happy unreal.

Baby dust to all mums to be.

There is hope xxx

BFP @ 14DPO

Hi, guys!

I'm 33 and my husband is 40 and I have a 25 day cycle. We've been trying to conceive our first child for about 4 months now and last week, I got my BFP, thank the Lord! :-) I was an avid reader of TWW the entire time we were TTC and wanted to share my story to encourage other women.

I used OPK kits the previous months but I think they were stressing me out. It made sex feel like a mission to my husband lol instead of a joy. So this month, I decided to just follow my apps' ovulation predictions (I used Ovia and Fertility Friend).

I ovulated either on 3/13 or 3/14 so we had sex on 3/10, 3/11, 3/12, 3/15, and 3/16. I really thought this wouldn't be our month since we missed O day but let this be an example of Jesus making things happen in His own time:-)

I didn't feel any telltale symptoms. In fact, it felt JUST like I was going to get my period.

Every month, I get intermittent tingling breasts and I got them this month too. And at 8 DPO like clock work, I got my normal af cramps gearing up. Nothing felt unusual to me until about 12 DPO, which was 2 days before my period. I usually get slight spotting, some pink when I wipe a few days before my period. But this time, I got nothing. Nothing at 13 DPO or 14 DPO. The evening my period was due, I took a test, thinking it would be negative and my period was just tardy. But I got a line! I was in such disbelief that I bought two more tests and they both were positive!

As far as methods I used:

-I used Preseed every time we had sex during my fertile window. I used to use it as a lubricant but the last two months, I inserted some inside and used some outside on my hubby

-I cut way back on my caffeine. I used to drink a cup a day. But for the last two months, I had coffee maybe 3 days out of the month and switched to herbal teas.

- I also started exercising slightly more, walking about 30 mins or so a day. I don't know if it helped but it certainly can't hurt.

-I relaxed and began to really lean back and trust God. God gives good gifts and a child is one of His greatest gifts. His will and way is always better than ours so whenever I'd begin to freak out, I would be reminded that Jesus has me.

I'm so grateful to God for this answered prayer and I pray for all of you trying to conceive. Keep seeking Him and trust that He indeed will answer! :-)

BFP after 7 months of trying!

We have been trying to conceive for 7 months and I am so happy to say that we are finally expecting our baby!

I had the Mirena IUD for almost 5 years and had it removed in August of 17'. Each month we would use OPK's and BD at all the appropriate times but nothing was happening. We were also using preseed except the month we conceived! I was charting using Ovia and with this I realized that my LP is only 11 days which is on the shorter end of normal. I was feeling a lot of anxiety about it and was worrying that there was something else wrong. In Dec I met with my OB for a yearly physical and she said to let her know if a few months if nothing happened yet and she would start with some blood tests. She wasn't too concerned with my LP length. My husband was starting to take steps as well to make sure it wasn't something on his end. In Feb he met with a dr that specializes in male reproduction and had blood work and a SA. Everything came back good! This was a huge relief. His Dr recommended Fertilaid for both of us so we started taking this as well. About a week later we met again with my OB to discuss further testing for me. She ran a bunch of blood work and wanted to get me scheduled for an HSG and Follicle US. All my blood work came back great! I felt like all of stress was melting away! The day I scheduled my HSG is when I found out I was pregnant! I was 9DPO, no unusual symptoms other than some spotting which was implantation bleeding. I am now 4 weeks 2 days and praying that this is a sticky little bean! I've been having seriel HCG's drawn and my #'s have been increasing nicely!

I know it can be discouraging and how much anxiety can go with this process. I really think that by getting ourselves tested early on helped ease my anxiety about it all and helped us to conceive.

AFTER 3 YEARS, 3 MISCARRIAGES, 3 ROUNDS OF CLOMID... I GOT MY BFP!!

WARNING: LONG POST> I promised that I would post details of my BFP (when that day came) and now I can! I hope this post will encourage others.

We tried off and on for 3 years. I charted EVERYTHING!!! So many tears and so much frustration, but I felt in my heart that it was going to happen... on God's timing, not mine (which is hard to accept sometimes).

*I HATED hearing people say, "When you stop trying it will happen." How do you stop trying when it is something that you want so bad... and you kinda have to try.lol

After the 2nd chemical I had the doctor run a RPL blood panel. Although they assumed everything was fine and it was "just a fluke", I knew something was off. The results came back great... but I did have a double copy of a gene mutation MTHFR! I have 3 perfect boys and NEVER knew of the problem, but my youngest is 10. I figured that maybe the gene gets worse with age and that is why it was causing issues.

We waited a few months and I started taking appropriate vitamins to help with this gene mutation, extra Lmeytholfolate, and baby aspirin. Well, after 5 months we got pregnant for the 3rd time! This time the BFP was darker and I didn't bleed right after my period was due. This one seemed to be a keeper! However, at my first doctors appointment I felt like something was wrong and voiced my opinion to the doctor. She tried to reassure me that all was fine because I wasn't bleeding, or cramping, But i knew something was wrong because I had no major symptoms at all. I requested an ultrasound due to my previous losses and she agreed to ease my mind with an ultrasound (I was 8 weeks).

*I know it's normal for some women to not experience major symptoms, but I know my body and it wasn't like me.

We had the ultrasound the same day and there was no baby. The sac measured 6 weeks, and was diagnosed as a blighted ovum. I told the doctor that I wanted to try and let my body get rid of it on it's own because I read that it was better for future conception/ less invasive. I had to wait until I was 13 weeks for it to start on its own!! However, it did all come out on its own within a 24 hour period. (horrible experience)

We were both kinda freaked by that whole experience and decided to stop trying for a while... maybe even for good. After all, we had 3 perfect boys and would just focus on them and our family. However, that ache in my heart never went away... I just felt in my heart that we were supposed to have another baby. I had to pray a lot the next few months because I felt like God placed the desire on my heart, but I was forcing it on my schedule and my timing.

We took a break, but I continued to chart EVERYTHING... just incase. Why do we (women) have to be in control of everything?! lol Anyways, the miscarriage happened in March 2017. We decided to try again in July 2017. I noticed that my cycles went back to normal 29 days and that was a relief. However, WE COULD NOT GET PREGNANT AGAIN. I didn't understand because we had 3 losses within the two and a half year period and now nothing.

*WE TRIED EVERY CRAZY THING: Pineapple core, socks to maintain temps, standing on my head, staying in bed after sex, no peeing after, Preseed, soft cups, food changes, Clomid, Progesterone, and sex on specific days, and so much more.... it was crazy!

The doctor suggested Clomid (although I was ovulating) in order to increase our chances each month. I took it for 3 cycles with NO LUCK! My cycles did change from 29 to 31 and 33 days due to the medicine. Also, I suffered severe anxiety and depression after my last dose... IT WAS TERRIFYING!! I PROMISED TO NEVER TAKE IT AGAIN. It didn't start until the last dose was finished and almost out of my system.

I had ENOUGH of EVERYTHING! I decided to completely stop in November of 2017. My husband and I couldn't take it anymore. We realized that it obviously wasn't a part of God's plan or will for us and we had to TRUST him despite our desires. After all, He blessed us with children to begin with and that was enough.

The only thing left was the Ovia app on my phone and that I decided to keep just to track my periods in hopes they would return to a normal 29 day cycle. I can't tell how FREE I felt to just LET GO and STOP forcing it. We took our family vacation in February 2018 and I did happen to notice that it was scheduled during my "fertile week", but I hadn't been using OPKs anymore, so i didn't know for sure if the chart was accurate. I just shrugged it off and focused on the trip, my kids, and the memories we would make. Plus, I needed to get away after the major anxiety attack!

BFP 13dpo with absolutely no symptoms

I have just got my bfp on the day AF was due and having spent the whole of the tww desperately symptom spotting and googling everything without any luck. I really wanted to post something to reassure ladies that are currently in the tww that you truely do not need to have any symptoms to still get a bfp.

Just to clarify, as sometimes people will say they had no symptoms but then go on to say they had E.G. implantation bleed, increased Cm, sore boobs etc.

Until the day my period was due I had no symptoms at all. Trust me I have been ultra vigilant!!

No sore or heavy boobs
No implantation bleeding
No cramps
No CM at all
No twinges, aches or pains
No headaches, sniffles or vivid dreams
No bfp until day AF was due

I felt 100% normal.

I also didn’t get a bfp until the day AF was due (13/14dpo) so you can get negatives before then and still get a bfp.

I was absolutely expecting a negative test and was so shocked when the second line appeared.

It’s now been a few days and yes I now have sore and heavy boobs and some twinges.

Wishing you ladies all the love and luck in the world during your tww. It’s such a stressful time, but I really wanted to let you know if you’re not feeling any symptoms, until AF appears, you 100% still have a chance!! Xxx

BFP with almost NO Symptoms (except EWCM on 8dpo)

I wanted to share my story because I was 100% positive I was not pregnant. I just didn't FEEL pregnant. I searched for stories that said "no symptoms," and they were very rare. Here is how it went for me. We conceived in Southeast Asia, and I assumed the wacky time changes messed up my cycle. I missed the positive OPK result because I never knew if I had even ovulated.

1-6dpo: zero symptoms
7-9dpo: restless sleep but I also had jet lag from the trip to Asia
8dpo: Egg white cervical mucus. Not much, but enough to notice. I considered implantation at this point, but I couldn't find much backing on the internet for this, so I assumed I was having an anovulatory or irregular cycle.
9dpo: woke with the certainty that I was NOT pregnant. My CM was wet though, and that was enough to keep me reading and guessing.
10dpo: super duper faint line on a test.
11dpo: BFP

Now that I have the BFP, I can feel twinges in my uterus. They're slight, but they're there. I seriously did not have any symptoms leading up to today though. I never felt pregnant. I was certain I was not. Just wanted to share to keep hope alive for some of you. <3

IUI to AF to BFP

I cannot believe I finally get to submit my BFP story!! EEEK

History on DH and I: I am 26 and he is 27. I have minor history of PCOS (one cyst once and told PCOS) and elevated Prolactin (highest recorded: 61). DH has low numbers (<10 million pre wash) and low motility (<20% pre wash). We have been trying to conceive for 3 years. We were put on 3 rounds of clomid (May, June, and August 2017) with no pregnancy success but had positive ovulation tests every time. OBGYN sent us to South Florida IVFMD for further help.

Reproductive Endocrinologist suggested IUI since both hubby and I were below average but not so low to where she suggested IVF. She placed me on synthroid (hypothyroidism runs in my family and my numbers were a little too off for their liking) and I started Femera 12/26/2017. IUI was on 01/05/2018 and 01/06/2018 where DH had a 2.4 million/ 65% post wash sample and 600,000/95% post wash sample. I was instructed to either have a beta done or do a HPT 01/18/2018. However, I started spotting 01/16/2018 and thought for sure I was out. I took a FRER HPT 01/18/2018 and saw the faintest line but only if I held it up to the bathroom light. I thought I was making myself crazy and threw it out. 01/20/2018, I starting bleeding very heavily, bled a medium flow the next day, and had two spots of blood 01/22/2018. I went to the doctor to start our second round of IUI where she did a beta pregnancy test only as a formality. Shockingly, she said I was pregnant (Beta: 26) but was probably losing the baby to miscarriage with all the bleeding I experienced that weekend. She placed me on Progesterone suppositories to stop the bleeding and I took another Beta two days after (Beta: 44). Now that they confirmed that I was still pregnant, they were worried about ectopic pregnancy with the beta not doubling. They ordered another Beta Friday (Beta: 96). NUMBERS MORE THAN DOUBLED!! They are not so worried about ectopic now :) Hopefully our little Peanut will continue to grow happily and healthily. I wanted to share because I want all the women out there to know that weird things can happen and you can be pregnant with all of the situations above and more I'm sure.

What I did in the month of the IUI that may have helped me get pregnant:
Took Prenatal and Vitamin E everyday
The day of the IUIs, DH and I BD and I laid down for the rest of the day.
After the IUI, ate 1/5 pineapple with core for five days. Also, placed a heating pad either on my back or belly throughout the work day. Lastly, I followed chinese medicine and only drank warm fluids, drank lots of water and tea, and had full fat dairy. I also exercised with walking or jogging every day (not a common thing for me).
I also visualized the sperm joining with the egg. I know it sounds weird but some women swear by it and it worked for me :)

Other than normal period symptoms, I did not have any pregnancy symptoms the weeks after IUI.
