Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with No Symptoms

BEST GIFT EVER .... My BFP

I am 40 and I have been trying to get pregnant for the last 13 months, 3 IUI's and 3 IVFs. On my 3rd IVF I finally got my BFP!!! My story starts with 3 no successful IUI’s. On my 1st IVF we decided to go with PGS (long waiting). One embryo transferred, I felt breast soreness (I believe it was because of the meds) and cramping. Full bleeding at day 3 after ET, of course full depression, but the nurse encouraged me to continue on the meds. I got a positive PT, that after 2 days I lost in my second check. I tried again and during my 2nd IVF, one embryo transferred and I felt the regular monthly cramping 2 days before the PT, which resulted negative. I gave it a try, and for my 3rd IVF I got 2 embryos transferred. For all my cycles I have had slow growth and no more than 6 follicles to be candidates for extraction. On my 3rd cycle I got 3 follicles extracted and the 3 were fertilized. The day of the transfer I got 2 embryos transferred, and I started praying, meditating and being thankful for any result that could result. ZERO symptoms, honestly ZERO. I was very thirsty (I believe was because of the meds) 6dp5dt I had a watery discharge, desperate since I didn't understand why I did not feel anything!. I did a PT on day 10dp5dt which results on 1 strong line and the second one very fainted. 11dp5dt we did the electronic test and we saw a beautiful YES. Resulting on a positive beta. I am super excited and thankful. Strongly believing that I am having a happy ending. I read so many posts and with my experience, I just want to ask you to have hope in your heart, trust your god, every women body is different. Which you the best in this journey!

15th cycle and 2nd round of Clomid, No symptoms

I’ve visited this message board a lot over the past 15 cycles so I wanted to share my experience in hopes that it could help someone else out there! I’m 31 and this is my second round on 50mg Clomid (monitored), and I received a BFP on 13dpo! I’m not a frequent tester after being let down so much, I waited until I missed my period to test. My husband and I both checked out just fine and were about to go to a RE next month if nothing happened with round 2 at my obgyn’s office. We were assuming more advanced fertility treatment was in our future. But I wanted those of you who are getting frustrated to know that there IS hope!! I’m still cautiously happy since we've been trying so long, still wrapping my head around it, but the proof is in the BFP! The funny thing is that so many times before this cycle I thought I had pregnancy symptoms, time after time I got my hopes up, but this time I had absolutely ZERO typical symptoms and nothing resembling my PMS symptoms either so once I missed my period, I knew something was up. I think that’s the red flag, for my body at least, the lack of symptoms is what was different and what led me to the BFP. :) I hope this helps anyone who does not have any symptoms know that a BFP is still possible and after 15 cycles it’s possible as well!!

BFP 8dpo!

I’m so excited to finally get to post my BFP story. I’ve watched this site for a while and I love reading everyone’s stories. First let me say that this was our second cycle trying to conceive and here is a list of things I did differently. 1.Took prenatal vitamins! 2.Used Ovulation test. 3.Less caffeine 4. Tried not to stress! 5.Legs up after sex. I personally think the ovulation test and prenatals are what helped us this cycle. I believe I had a chemical last month I had a vvfl and slowly but surely it got lighter and then AF came. So I’m very excited about this! Now to the good part my list of symptoms! CD 17: positive opk! Did the baby dance! CD 18: peak opk! (Crampy, threw up, feeling weak) CD19: O day! Did the baby dance (feeling better, slight cramps could be from gas) CD20:1dpo ( creamy lotion cm, tired (could be unrelated) felt a few “pinches” CD21: 2dpo (Feeling normal) lots of cm CD22:3dpo (Feeling normal) left ovary pain. CD23:4dpo (feeling normal) CD24:5dpo(feeling normal) CD25:6dpo(feeling normal, gassy, went to bed early) CD26:7dpo(feeling normal, slept so much today) CD27:8dpo( Feeling normal, slight cramping in back, BFP?!, lots of CM) CD28 ( Feeling normal, more pinching and pulling in my lower abdomen, took another test definitely a BFP!!! I don’t have any “real” symptoms yet. I didn’t get symptoms with my son until I was over 6 weeks so I’m not worried. My line is way darker than last month with my chemical. I will continue to test to watch my line progression. Praying for a sticky bean! My AF is due in 5 days praying she never comes! Good luck ladies! Baby dust to everyone.

BFP 36 One Ovary Clomid 2nd Cycle

God is so great! I had a larascopic oophorectomy in December and had left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to previous ruptured cyst year prior as well as severe adhesion's from endometriosis. My cycles were shorter but it appeared my right ovary was ovulating. I tried for 6 months and it was causing strife between my husband and I due to stress. We took a break focused on clean eating and went to couples therapy. I started clomid 50 mg 5-9 and took at night. Month one was emotional and I thought I was pregnant but never got a positive test. The next month I prayed everyday. I asked God to show me his will if this was not my plan. I also focused on joy for other women conceiving and prayed for other women struggling. Focusing on how I could help others made me less stressed during cycle two. I committed to no crazy early testing (like testing before implantation is even possible) I BD every other day and three days in a row after CB digital positive ovulation.(Eight days after last pill) I drank Pink Stork Fertility tea till ovulation, took Evening Primrose oil and snacked on Organic Brazil nuts, I also took plant based COQ10 and Pink Store Prenatal. I never thought I would have my BFP this month. Side note I had strongest ovulation as I really felt and my progesterone levels are excellent. I have six week ultrasound next Monday and am nervous and ecstatic. I pray for all the brave women who stuggle and continue to try. Bless you and Baby Dust! Below are some of the things I noted during tww. 1 -3 dpo Nothing 4 dpo Strong pelvic pains started to worry had cyst. exhausted, starving, craving bad foods, lotiony cm, kind of horny, gas 5 dpo Pelvic pain went away, in good mood, Still tired, bm multiple times hard and not soft like normal, lots of creams cm when checking, water discharge early am and lots of gas 6 dpo not much gas..loads of gas 7 dpo not much gas..loads of gas..argument with DH. Angry when normally more weepy before AF 8 dpo Gas :(, at store shopping ran to bathroom and barely made it due to huge soft bm, sorry tmi (usually go to bathroom a lot right before af) 9dp-10dpo Convinced AF is coming light cramps no pregnant feeling, but I had odd tickling under belly button. I had a glass of wine and noticed heart rate is elevated. Now that I look back resting heart rate went up and stayed up after pregnancy. 11dpo (two days before af) take test convinced negative want to get out of the way line on FRER under two minutes 12dpo BFP on CB Digital and Confirmed Beta 17 HCG 14 dpo Beta 157 18 dpo Beta 1,758

TTC#1 Took 12 tests before I thought it was real!

OD: CD 15 using OPK to confirm. BD: CD 11, 13, 14 (with preseed inserted), and 15. I have been taking prenatal vitamins for 6 months and this month I tried to wait at least 10 minutes after sex before getting up. I am 34 years old, a healthy weight, and I did not stop drinking until BFP. This was the first month that I didn't chart my temp. I was getting discouraged. We have been trying for 6 months, but a few of those were missed opportunities because my husband is a FF and not home much in the summer. No major symptoms. I did feel like a strange urge to clean the last couple of days, which isn't like me...I also was asleep by 8:30pm each night, but I didn't think too much of it since I had been getting up early all week. Also, did have some blood in my nose a few days. I thought it could just be from dry weather. //DPO 4 / CD19// Weird brownish CM. I felt like I have had this before during my TWW, so I didn't think too much of it. Also, this would have been way to early for implantation. //DPO 9 / CD24// Couldn't fight the urge to POAS. Used an internet cheapie. BFN. //DP0 10 / CD25// Decided to keep the POAS train going. Used an internet cheapie. I saw a shadow. That's the only way to describe it, because it wasn't a line. It made me understand all the women on those boards that are posting pics asking for help in looking at a test because I felt crazy. I tried to ignore it, but I couldn't. I fished out of the trash the test from DPO 9 to compare. Definitely a shadow. I somehow had a little pee left so I peed in a cup again. Did another internet cheapie...shadow. I am not crazy! I searched in the bathroom drawer for that one clear blue (not digital) that I had been saving for CD29...I dipped it in the same cup. Definite faint line! I couldn't help myself and tested a good around mid day. I held my bladder for a little over 3.5 hours and tried a Clear Blue Digital and BFN. //DPO 11 / CD26// Today my internet cheapie is a faint line. Slight morning sickness today. //DPO 12 / CD27// Today I got a "Pregnant" on a Clear Blue Digital. I also did my internet cheapie and it was about the same strength of line as yesterday. //DPO 13 / CD 29// Tested on my last Clear Blue Digital in the AM...Still pregnant. I did an internet cheapie in the PM and it was darker than the AM test yesterday. //DPO 14 / CD 30// Today my internet cheapie was finally almost as dark as the control line. ::Sigh of relief:: I am done POAS...for now! I decided to keep in my DPOs 11-14 because I began to freak out that this was a chemical pregnancy. The pregnancy boards can be a scary place when you are feeling unsure. I hope this will help someone else to not worry and know that a faint line is not a bad thing!! I guess the worry will continue now for a million other reasons, but I am definitely pregnant!!

Natural BFP at 42

I have been pregnant 5 times now in my 40s. 2 were chemical pregnancies, 1 was a miscarriage, 1 was a live (although preemie) birth (my TTC story is in the post with the title "Natural BFP After Vasectomy Reversal, Over 40, Low Progesterone, Short Luteal Phase"), and I am now 16 weeks pregnant again. I will be 43 1/2 when I deliver. I just wanted to provide encouragement that it is possible to get pregnant in your 40s. We were not trying/not preventing this time. My baby was 6 1/2 months old when I conceived again. Also, since some might find this reassuring, all genetic testing has come back fine on this pregnancy and multiple ultrasounds so far have shown that baby is healthy. As for symptoms, I generally know soon after conception that I'm pregnant due to a strong gag reflex, but otherwise I didn't really have any other symptoms. The whole pregnancy so far has basically been symptom-free. Don't give up hope. God can do anything.

BFP After 5 Years of Trying!

I have read so many stories on TWW for the past five years, I always hoped I could write one too. And here I am! *Fair warning, this is not one of those Symptom by CD. Those are super helpful when you are scouring TWW for hopeful insight, however, I was not able to catalogue my symptoms. This is also a lengthy post. I am 22 and DH is 27. Before I begin I want to explain that this cycle was unlike any other. When you've been TTC for so long it is almost inevitable to begin to learn to "listen" to what your body it saying. Since tracking my ovulation via FertilityFriend and the occasional ovulation testing, I learned how my body would feel during ovulation. Usually occurring on the left side of my lower abdomen, I could feel a small pinching throughout the day. My breast would become sore on the sides for two weeks, then the day before AF arrives my breast were no longer sore. This was my indication of ovulation. Two weeks later AF would arrive like clockwork. This cycle I did not feel any of my normal ovulation symptoms. So much so I assumed I was having an anovulatory cycle. My cycles used to be extremely irregular: six months without a cycle for example. However, in the past year they have regulated to a 28 to 35 day cycle with ovulation occurring around CD17-CD20. CD27 rolls around and I assume I am out this month since my breast are becoming sore and DH and I haven’t (TMI) BD in the way you make a baby. CD29: I am feeling pre-AF cramps. So really think I am out. CD 30 TMI: after using the restroom I found peach colored discharge upon wiping. I assumed this was my period. In the past I have had multiple periods that consisted of spotting of light brown to dark red and a flow light enough for only a panty liner. This lasted until CD32. I did have the thought this could be implantation bleeding but five years of TTC slightly smashed that hope. CD34: Got my faint BFP in the evening yesterday after deciding to test for some reason. When I saw the line, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me or it was a faulty test. But a pink line is a pink line. CD35: Tested again today. Actually two times, out of disbelief. Both BFP. The darkness of the line has not changed since last night, but I know it takes two days for the HGC to double. Thinking back on how I was feeling before I knew I was pregnant I did have a few symptoms, though I cannot tell when in my cycle I experienced them. List of Symptoms: Extremely gassy. This is of no attempt to be modest, I barely pass gas unless I ate something unhealthy. But the past two weeks, just terrible. DH even noticed. I kept smelling a fishy smell everywhere, but it was and still is no where to be found. And I am the only one who can smell it. Lucky me. Very sensitive and lots of tears. Crying during movies is normal for me, but I’ve been ugly crying at a lot of stuff. Things that aren’t even sad. I am feeling lots of pinching and pulling in my lower abdomen. It feels as though I am flexing below my belly button. So overall, I honestly don't feel pregnant. And I am still in disbelief.. It happens you guys, just be patient and remain hopeful. the pain is real and can overcome you if you let it. Fingers crossed for you.

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 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.
