BFP after Mirena Removal

Pregnant at 45 naturally

My DH and I decided to TTC our first together. I was worried about my age and if it was even possible at this point, but no reason not to try. So I went to the gyn/ob and had my Mirena IUD pulled and of course he gave me the are you sure speech with all the possible negatives. I decided that this was going to be done naturally or not at all. I didn't want to do all the medications etc. After 8 months of disappointing BFN's I was on the verge of giving up. So on my 9th cycle I decided to let what happens happen and not worry too much. Well, it ended up being our cycle! It IS possible to get pregnant naturally at the age of 45. Don't get me wrong, I will be worried until we get the ultrasound done and tests to make sure all is well. The ob/gyn made sure to let me know that m/c's are very common at this age. sigh I'm holding on to the fact that I'm thankful to have never had a m/c and my AF cycles have been perfectly normal so I'm hopeful all will be fine.

AF lasted 2 days as normal
cd12 temp spike telling me I ovulated. We DTD on cd10, cd12, cd13
1dpo constipation, bloated, gassy
2dpo bloated, diarrhea, gassy
3dpo Allergies acting up, gums swollen and bleeding, bloated, bad diarrhea still, tired w/headache and heartburn. I was VERY irritable. Everything was getting on my nerves and I broke out on my chin.
5dpo bloated, tender BB's, tired
6dpo backache, bloated, tired, heartburn, irritable, sleep deprived
7dpo same as 6dpo
8dpo same b/c with some nausea
9dpo Had a dream that I had implantation, had temp drop. same symptoms as before
10dpo Had pink spotting off and on, same symptoms
11dpo pink spotting in the morning only when i wipe. Diarrhea again
12dpo same symptoms, positive HPT!
13dpo Had more spotting but light reddish color...made me alittle worried, another positive with Clearblue digi "pregnant". Spotting stopped after the morning.
16 dpo Another positive HPT

Someone made the comment that maybe I have twins b/c of the spotting at two different days. The thought scares me! LOL Anyway.... pregnant naturally at 45 is possible!!

BFP After 11 Months TTC

FINALLY!!!! I get to share my BFP story. These have been a God send for me in the last several months and I cannot believe that it is my turn. I had mirena removed 8/20/13 and have TTC ever since. I have had a really rough last few months getting BFN's, so I didnt chart or do OPK's this cycle. All we really did differently was BD'd every other day the entire month. Part of our issue getting PG was that we dont know when I ovulate every month. I guess it worked this time :) I used an internet cheapie and got a very faint second line. I had used all of my good tests in previous months and I decided against buying anymore since all they have been up to this point was a waste of money. Bad decision, because I was looking like a hot mess running through Wal-Mart at 6:30 this morning to buy and CB digi with weeks predictor. That confirmed it for me. I have an appointment today to get bloodwork to confirm. The only symptoms I noticed this cycle were:
-pulling in abdomen
-sore gums
-stomach ache (no nausea)
-tender nipples

Baby dust to all of you and please pray for me that this little bean sticks!!

BFP at 12 dpo

I have been a lurker here for the past 6 months and am excited to post my own story since all of yours have helped me so much mentally and emotionally. These stories carried so much hope for me! Even though 6 months isn't very long, it messed with my head anyway.

Backstory: I got Mirena removed (had it for 6 years) end of January. This was our 5th cycle trying because my first 2 cycles post-Mirena were 35 days and they got shorter each month until they are now regulated at 29 days. Me: 31 DH: 30

Things I did different this month: I had been using OPKs since the first cycle off Mirena and always got a surge. So that was good. My sister said she conceived when she stopped tracking it, just have fun, stop worrying, and that is exactly what we did this month. I HATE when people say to "stop trying" because I know plenty of people who got pregnant when they "started trying" but it worked for us. I also took 600mg guaifenesin (mucinex) from CD 10- CD 20 once per day. I felt crazy doing it but I am a CF carrier and I read somewhere that if you have asthma, allergies, and sinus issues (which I do) then it can be harder to conceive b/c your mucus is thicker. It could be a total load of you know what but I thought whatever, it's just a pill once a day and I tried it to see if it would thin my mucus. It definitely did! I have no idea if that's what did the trick or not this month though.

1 DPO - gassy, diarrhea, moody (it's how I know it was day after O, this is normal for me)
2-5 DPO - acne, VERY sleepless every night, headaches (all normal PMS for me)
6-9 DPO bbs sore to the touch (also normal PMS for me, get this every month, it sucks)
10 DPO - BFN :( Weird pulsing in V area. like I could feel my heart beat in there (increased blood flow? this was not normal). Almost threw up which can sometimes happen to me in PMS but it's rare. Bbs hurt terribly.
11 DPO - Nauseous, almost threw up again, pulsing in the V continued, AF cramps. Bbbs hurt worse than ever, nipples sting. VERY faint positive on internet dip sticks. So faint I could only see it in bright light against a white background. DH thought I was insane :) but my sister saw it.
12 DPO - Bbs still hurt, very tired, weird dreams, tons of creamy wet CM (tmi), then light but very obvious BFP w/ FMU on internet cheapies. Can't believe it!!!

I hope it sticks! This would be our first. Baby dust to all!

BFP When I decided I was fine without having another child!

Well like most say when you stop thinking about it it will happen but I must say I never stopped thinking about having another baby, my perception just changed. My hubby and I decided we were ready to have our first child together in 2012 (I have a 6 year old daughter from a previous marriage and he has two sons ages 12 & 13 from a previous marriage) So I decided to get my Mirena taken out. I thought once I got it taken out I would immediately get pregnant but following the removal I had very irregular cycles and extreme cramps. Just about every month I would think I was pregnant because my period was never regulated I had cycles range from 28 days to 65 days, and I was regular before and during my IUD. Anyway once we reached the year and a half mark I started realizing we weren't ready for another baby and it's a good thing it hadn't happen yet I also told myself and others I'm fine with the children we have we don't need another one... Well fast forward to March my cycle was late like always I think I was at day 36 or so but I didn't have any symptoms out of the ordinary but one Friday night I suddenly came down with a stomach virus (or so I thought) my stomach was cramping really bad and I had diarrhea. So my hubby took care of me and at the 24 hour mark I felt much better. About a week went by and I told my husband that I still hadn't gotten my period and I think I should test he said I doubt you're pregnant why waste money on a test... I said well just go to the dollar store and I'll get a 1 dollar test so we did. As soon as I got home I took the test within seconds the two lines came up and all I could say was "oh my God" (I had to call on God because I didn't believe it) I said to my husband this thing is positive and he said you're lying! So I showed him and he just laughed! I didn't believe it so I called my husband's job clinic and asked could I come in to get a pregnancy test they said as long as I come before 4 it was about 3:15 so we hurried there... Took the test and BAM! Positive! I was shocked but soon after it turned into excitement. I'm now 22 weeks pregnant with a baby girl, what my hubby wanted so badly! I'm due November 24th and we cannot wait to meet our little lady! So ladies my words to you that are trying, when God is ready to open your womb He will do it in His timing... don't put to much thought into it just enjoy the time with your spouse! And I promise in due time you'll get what your heart desires!

Exactly like PMT

I'm 38 and I think I got pregnant the very first time we tried so it CAN happen. I also have mild endo and had a lap at the end of April.

I had a few symptoms but I genuinely didn't think this would happen so quickly.

8dpo - I woke up to an orgasm dream.
9dpo - I fely that warm heavy feeling in my uterus like AF was doing her thing. Did POAS, BFN
10dpo - Feel very emotional, bit a few peoples heads off, vivid dreams
11dpo - Feeling exactly like AF is coming, warm when I wake up. POAS - BFN
12dpo - Woke up again with AF warm uterus feeling, POAS - BFN (think I'm mental for even peeing on these sticks)
13dpo - Think I'm imagining a metallic taste.
14dpo - Wee waves of very mild nausea all day, feel jittery, really bloody/metallic taste - starting to think I'm going mental. Tested with FRER, BFP.
15dpo - (didn't sleep last night) Woke up and did a digital test - 1-2 weeks pregnant!

Still in shock.

Oh, forgot to mention constipation, I've been constipated for about a week.

BFP 17DPO!!!!!!

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!! I'm in complete shock right now!!!! Got BFNs sooo many times this month, last tested 14DPO, BFN on a Clear Blue Digital Test. Retested again right now in the evening for no real reason, other than the fact that I have been reading posts on here today about women not getting BFP until 17 or 18 DPO. After sitting there starting at the test while it was analyzing, thinking ok this is really the last time I'm going to test, it popped up PREGNANT 1-2!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, JESUS!!!!!!! I'm still in a state of disbelief, and when my husband called me on his break, I told him, and he can't believe it either!!! He will only take a doctor's word for it!!! :D Can't wait to make my first appt!!!!!! :)

EVAP or BFP????

Actually I spoke too soon, maybe... I just looked at the First Signal test I took earlier, like an hour ago, and there is a faint line!! It looks pinkish, not gray so it can't be an evap right???

BFP at 10dpo - 2 cycles after Mirena removal

I have been on this site every day for the past month or so reading your stories so I thought I better share mine. Even if it helps one person, I figured it would be worth it.

DH and I decided to try for baby #2! Our DD just turned 3. I had my Mirena removed April 3rd. Doctor didn't give me any reason not to begin trying to conceive immediately, but after reading things online, I decided to wait one cycle. So I ovulated May 9th and we BDed on that day and the four days leading up to it, when I had EWCM. Then the two week wait began!

1dpo-8dpo=absolutely nothing to report!
8dpo-9dpo=very tired, barely sore boobs, and some achy feelings in lower abdomen. DD ate McDonalds and I about had to leave the room! It just disgusted me for some reason.
10dpo=still so tired, boobs more sore
Took FRER with second morning urine... And a clear BFP! Took a Clearblue digital HPT with weeks estimator as well, which came out as 1-2 weeks since ovulation, which would put me at 3-4 weeks pregnant!

I am still in shock because I didn't expect to get pregnant on our first cycle actually trying! I also had very few symptoms. I am very leery, however, because I had two MC before having our DD and I have read so many horror stories about MC and chemical pregnancies after Mirena. So until I am a little farther along, my husband and I will be keeping the exciting news to ourselves!

Thanks for reading and baby dust to all TTC! Keep your fingers crossed that this is a viable, healthy pregnancy! ;)
