Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with No Symptoms

Pregnant With a Polup

Oh my goodness what a hard journey ttc is! We started trying for our second July 2011. Our first took 4 months. As the year went on I tried fertility yoga, acupuncture and went to a fertility clinic. They found a polup and I was booked for surgery Aug 2012. A year of tears and prayers- it was so hard to have no control! June 2012 we had sex twice during the two weeks but I didn't temp, look at the calendar or plan because the surgery was booked. July 7th was the date I was due but no period. I had no real symptoms as every month I had every symptom listed so looking for it - hurt. By the 9th I got blood when I wiped - even though I expected it - cried and cried. Put in a tampon and over the next day got only a tiny bit of blood. Bought a test on the 11th and got a positive - tried another and again positive. Happy does not described how we felt. Baby boy due in March. Such a journey - I wish everyone so much luck!! Surgery got cancelled :)

BFP!!! Over One Year of Trying With Endometriosis

I CAN'T BELIEVE I CAN FINALLY POST ON HERE!!!!!
After over a year of reading all your wonderful posts and keeping faith I finally can tell my story!!
At about 10 months of trying i knew something was up. Me and DH are very healthy and seem to have no problems. Got DH checked, he was perfect. I got referred to an Infertility Dr. It started with blood work. Everything clear. Then I had a HSG scan done, VERY painful but all tubes clear!! I thought "what is wrong with me!!?" Well the next step was my dr. thought I had endometriosis. With symptoms of pain during intercourse and an exam he did, he thought I had it. So about three weeks ago I had the surgery...and I def. had endo. I had a stage 2 of 4. Dr said he basically guaranteed that's what was causing my infertility. One week after surgery was ovulating time. I knew it was early but I wasn't passing it up!!! Well, two weeks later I'm looking at a BFP!!!!! I was in such disbelief, I got blood work done, and PREGNANT!!!!! I found out on Halloween! So on Halloween I was 4 weeks...... Here's to 9 more moths of happiness and bliss!!!!
Symptoms
1-6dpo- really nothing, a little gassy
7-12dpo- crampy twinges, different than I've felt before.
10dpo- bfn
12dpo- bfn I knew I was out since I thought a lot of women got their bfp by this time.
13dpo- late afternoon.... super super faint line!
14dpo- had blood work done and took another pee test, pee test darker but still faint!

I sill don't have many symptoms. The only thing is I'm a little tired and peeing just a little more. Boobs don't hurt. Not cramping, or anything like that with my body.
GOOD LUCK LADIES!!!! DREAM REALLY DO COME TRUE!!! Have faith and keep praying!

BFP!!!!... Few Symptoms

I found this board when we were TTC with DS a little less than two years ago and it was addicting and awesome to read everyone's TWW stories. I'm back again, just got a BFP this morning! This is our third month TTC but the first two I was super sick with a cold and was living on Nyquil 24/7. This month I tried not to think about TTC and keep busy. My last AF was 9/27 and my cycle is regular at 30 days. We BD almost every other day from the 2nd till 14th... and then again on the 19th. I was thinking I was a late O girl so we had one more shot. I thought we were out this month and had OPK and Pre-Seed in my Amazon shopping cart for next month but no need!!

Symptoms- Last pregnancy I found out I was PG because my BBs were SO incredibly sore.... so this is what I was expecting but have had NO BBS soreness at ALL! The week before my BFP I noticed I couldn't finish a glass of wine for the life of me. I would have a sip each night and that's all.... which is so unlike myself. Also, I was DONE at 7pm and in bed two days in a row. Two days before missing AF I had brown spotting and I thought for sure AF was on her way... I NEVER spot so when she didn't show up I figured something was up.

We also used Pre-Seed because it's amazing and I think it works amazing... we used it on the first PG and got a BFP the first month. Also, I started taking my gummy prenatals two months ago to get myself ready.

Other than that, relax, enjoy BD and TTC and it WILL happen to all of you!! ~*~*~baby dust to all~*~*~*

16 Months, One Surgery, and 3 Rounds of Clomid = BFP

Ah! I can't believe I get to finally do this and say "hey, I'm pregnant!". This was our 16th month TTC. Last June I had laparoscopic surgery to check for endometriosis. I did not have that but what they did find was 3 small fibroids on my uterus and a partially blocked left fallopian tube. 2 of the fibroids were removed and dr. was unable to take the third one out. I felt so much better knowing what the issues were. Part of my stress was thinking that something was seriously wrong with me. I have a perfect 29 day cycle. I am so exact down to the hour! My Dr. reassured me that everything was great but want to try clomid anyways. 3 rounds of that, took pills on cycle days 3-7. This month I also tried acupuncture. I highly recommend it! It gives you a chance to relax! Which is what I did three times a week. While I sat there with needles in me I got to pray. I am a Christian and knew I just had to wait for Gods timing. I put all of this in His hands and let Him worry about it instead of me putting all the pressure on myself.

My symptoms are pretty small. I wouldn't even be able to tell if I didn't have a positive test. I have also been taking a prenatal, calcium, folic acid, and B6 vitamin every day.

Cycle day 3-7 - clomid
Did the deed every other day till I got a positive ovulation and then did IT twice a day. Also one day after for good measure. (with Pre-Seed every time)
Cycle Day 14 - ovulated on right side (my good side)
DPO 6 - woke up with a very sharp shooting pain through my right tube. Lasted a couple of second, I rolled over and pain went away. (implantation?)
DPO 8 - extra bloody gums. I have sensitive teeth anyways but this was extra sensitive! (my dentist has told me that hormones do affect gums)
DPO 11 - finally got my Internet cheapies in the mail and I had to test. IS THAT A LINE OR A SHADOW?!?!
DPO12 - test again, LINE IS STILL THERE. Very faint! Still not sure if I can trust these things. I'm only used to seeing negatives that I didn't think a positive stick was possible. I got a little test crazy and started testing all day. Finally went out and bought First Response and Clear Blue Digital. Tested with both PREGNANT!!! I can believe it. A lot of crying and relief that this process is over. Then my mind went quickly to stressing about having a healthy baby. ;) I just keep testing and line keeps getting darker.

My husband and I have shared the news with are parents and are waiting to share the news with close friends and family until first ultrasound at 5 weeks. I have to have this done to make sure it's not a tubal because of my blockage. I'm due July 17th!

Even with everything I went through I do realize I had it easy compared to some. Those "some" will always have a piece of my heart!

Had Given Up.....then BFP!!!!!

I am 39, and have been trying to conceive for over a year. 2 months ago I was referred to a fertility specialist. After preliminary tests, I was told that my chances of ever conceiving naturally were between 1-2% because of endometriosis and decreased ovarian function. I'm scheduled for a laparoscopy on Friday, which I will be more than happy to cancel.

I have had no symptoms whatsoever, took a test this morning, 11 dpo, 1 day before the expected AF. Just knowing I would see a big fat negative.

To my wonderful surprise, BFP!!!!!!!! 4 tests later, and it's still there!!!!!

Only thing I did different, I prayed about it and then I didn't think about it at all.

Don't give up ladies, no matter what they tell you.

BFP at 14 DPO

I finally got my BFP today - I have not had any noticeable symptoms this cycle, other than being very tired, which I figured was because I've been working 12 hour days for the last month.
I tested at 10, 11 and 12 DPO - all BFNs. Added with the lack of symptoms I counted myself out. Today AF was due and I woke up feeling nauseous, so I tested and there it was ;)
I am 41 and we have been TTC for the past 18 months. I did have 2 m/c - the last one 8 months ago.
What we did differently this month: we did not start until I got a positive ovulation test. We did it that night and the 3 following nights. Could be a coincidence but the other months we would start a few days sooner. We have also been using Pre-Seed for the last 2 months.
Good luck to everyone ;)

Ten Long Months of Trying... Finally Two Pink Lines!

I was beginning to think I would never have the chance to post on this website, but my day has finally come. After ten long months of trying and a whole lot of tears, I finally got my BFP! I waited until I was three days late to test because I couldn't handle anymore disappointment. I cannot even put the feeling into words of seeing those two little pink lines appear. It was a mixture of amazement, bliss, fear, and craziness. I screamed from the bathroom so loud that DH came running! The lines literally showed up in 5 seconds… no three minutes needed. Gotta love First Response!

In these past ten months, I really was starting to worry that something was wrong. I even made an appointment with a fertility specialist that I am very happy to cancel. I had a bunch of blood work done and a sonogram and my husband had a sperm analysis. All the results came back fine, so we just couldn’t understand why it wasn’t happening! But it finally did! As my husband says, we really “got it in” this month. But I prayed every day and I know God answered my prayer.

I really had barely any symptoms… but here’s what I did notice…
CD 11 - BD
CD12 - BD
CD 13 - BD (I think this was ovulation day)
CD 14 – BD
CD 15 – BD
CD 18 – boobs started getting sore, but they always do around this time of the month. Thought for sure I was out.
CD 19 – 27 - creamy cm
CD 28 - I went to buy tampons.
CD 29 – late period? Eggwhite cm shows up… very weird… getting suspicious. No cramps? Very constipated.
CD 30 – still late… no cramps… too scared to test. Can’t bear the sight of another BFN. Very constipated.
CD 31 – still late! Finally get the nerve to test! BFP immediately!

I am still in shock! I really had no clue that I even had a shot this month until I missed my period. Here are the things I tried to get pregnant…
Drank grapefruit juice
Read 50 Shades of Gray lol
Used Pre-Seed
Made sure my butt was in the air
Tried to sleep for a few hours before getting up
And the most embarrassing of all…. this month was the only time I actually used a vibrator when DH was done. I swear the orgasms did it! Sorry for the TMI… but I would definitely invest in one!

Have faith… all is possible. Sticky baby dust to everyone and I pray that you all get your BFPs soon. :)

OMG

Ladies, I got my BFP (actually I got 6 because I tested 6 times because I didn't believe it) after trying for pretty much 1 year to the day!

I had a laporoscopy, ovarian drilling, cyst removal, D&C, endo removal from uterus and hysteroscopy done on the 14th August (PCOS) and this was our last month trying before we had to move on from trying naturally (I have a low egg count for my age 30). Anyway we had sex 4-5 days before I ovulated and that's it! I had to go away for work the week I actually ovulated. I got my positive OPK at the airport in transit and was devastated I couldn't take advantage of it... another month down the drain. I was expecting my period yesterday (ish) and for some reason I pee'd on stick last night (it's addictive) just before DH got home and it was flaming positive!! I actually didn't believe it. DH came into the bathroom and I was trying to tell him that I'm pregnant but I couldn't talk. He looked at the test and told me to get in the car. We went and bought 2 different tests and they both came up positive straight away. I tested again this morning with all 3 test and still BFP!!

I have a Dr appointment this afternoon and I'm so nervous he's going to tell me it isn't real and that I'm actually not pregnant. Anyway I'm enjoying this for what it is today and hopefully it sticks. I'm so excited I can't even eat!! Nervous...so nervous. I don't feel pregnant at all except for sore boobies but I normally get that before AF anyway!! Every other 12 months we've tried I have felt some kind of silly symptom.

NEVER GIVE UP!!

Praise the Lord

This past Monday night, I'd POAS daily for the last 3 days, and then another that morning. Driving home, I was praying about it, and remembering Sunday's sermon about how Gideon puts out a fleece (test) for God, asking God to "prove you're telling me what to do". So I start pondering, and feel that God is assuring me if I POAS that night it would be positive. Well, that doesn't make any sense - my period isn't due for 3 more days, so FMU is the only way to get a BFP this soon.

I go home, POAS and leave it in the bathroom. Run downstairs to start a load of laundry, and think to myself - is asking God to confirm this wrong? Well, Gideon asked God for confirmation, and he had lives at stake. Sure, he should ask, but should I? You would want to know if you were hearing from God if it meant going to battle. So then I think - God, do you really want me to be pregnant? We had a miscarriage in May, maybe this isn't your will? And then I was reminded that Jesus said he came to give us life, and give it to us more abundantly. That must include motherhood in my opinion (it takes all forms - adoption/mentoring, etc). But I'm feeling assured - and then I think - am I just being crazy? Am I putting "words" in God's mouth because it's what I WANT to hear? And I was reminded that we are his sheep, and his sheep hear his voice. If you don't hear, it's because you don't belong to him. So I decided to stand in faith.

I spoke scripture over my situation, reminding God that he said in his word, whatever we ask in prayer, believe that you received it. Then I asked him to help me with my unbelief, because although I know that God is the only giver of life, and that He is the only one in control, it's still difficult for me to believe it's not just me wanting this to be true.

I went and looked at the test - BFP!!!!!! (Well, actually big "faint" positive).... to which I proceeded to take 3 more tests the next day - finally a nice dark BFP, and then blood draw yesterday, HCG is at 44, and my period isn't even due until tomorrow. How AMAZING is God!!!!!!!!!!

So - that's my story - God is the ONLY one who creates life - it amazes me that he would use our bodies to do it! Now, I can't say that just because you pray, God immediately answers your prayer - which is all the more amazing to me that I heard from God, acted on his word, and am blessed with a pregnancy. Here comes the shocker:

I had almost NO SYMPTOMS over the last few weeks. The only thing I found strange was increased sense of smell on ONE occasion.

Then last night - only 2 days into the BFP, I have been crampy all day, headaches, and VAST nausea.

Not that I "want" to be sick, but we had a miscarriage in May at 5 1/2 weeks - I really didn't have many symptoms. So this time I welcome any proof that peanut is burrowed in. I am amazed at God, that I went from having no symptoms, to plenty of them.

All things in His time. I couldn't force Him, as much as I asked. I had been praying all along. There's no secret recipe or secret set of prayers. There's no "good behavior" that gets rewarded. It's faith, and an everlasting relationship with him. Look at scripture - we are NOT the first women to be grieved trying to conceive. I don't know how he will answer your prayers, but I know that he is faithful and loving, and is walking with each of us through this most difficult journey of TTC.

I hope you don't mind how long this is. Some might think I'm crazy - but I KNOW that God wanted me to give him HIS GLORY for being the ONLY ONE that made this come to pass. I have lots of things I've been doing - but I know that I know that I know that it was GOD ALONE that created life, using us!

Don't Give Up - It WILL Happen to You! 10dpo BFP!

Will keep this short and sweet. Trying for 8 months, thought I was PG every month of course. Took clomid and this was my third cycle (it was upped to 150mg). DH was 8 months post vasectomy reversal (original vasectomy was done before I met him a longgggg time ago!) His sperm did return but his count was not great - but you do only need just one of those little blighters!

What I did - PRAYED to God (practically begged him - felt like a whiny child), temped and used opk's (ic's). Drank decaffeinated green tea, took prenatal, baby aspirin and EPO (1000mg) up to O. Stopped temping after FF confirmed O. Used softcups, Pre-Seed and made sure I had orgasm after DH (apparently this helps the cervix suck up sperm - not sure if it is true, but did it anyway). Then GOT ON WITH MY LIFE! I just decided that I had done all I could do for the month.

Symptoms - none. Nothing! Only thing I had was itchiness down there, like it was the beginnings of a yeast infection, but it never turned into a full blown one. I did have to use my willpower and not scratch though!

It's true - the 2WW pg symptoms are just like 2WW pre AF symptoms - I did not feel any different.

Good luck to everyone out there still trying. I know it is hard and hope and pray that you become parents. God Bless.
