BFP after Mirena Removal

BFP 4.5 months after Mirena Removal

I am 36 and I had my Mirena removed January 3rd, 2014, after having it for 4 years after DS was born.

We wanted to wait for a due date in or after Jan 2015 (trying in April), but ended up “not trying, not preventing” right away.

First cycle of actual “trying” in April broke my heart when I started my period again on CD16….I don’t think I ovulated.

April 27th (CD 2) started B-50 to lengthen my cycle and Early Primrose for more abundant CM since I have been pretty lacking in that department and it WORKED!!!! Tons of EWCM on CD 9-10!

I believe I need help with my progesterone and will again after baby is born so I planned on trying Vitex next cycle, but got my BFP before I could!

My LMP was April 26, 2014 BFP: May 17th, 2014 (9dpo) EDD: January 31, 2014 (Aiming for Jan 29th – MIL birthday since I may have to have a repeat C-Section! Haha)

Things I did for my BFP:
Tempted – even on the weekends alarm set for 5:30am. Temps stay elevated from 6 DPO, dipped 9DPO and went back up 10DPO (I knew this may be it then!)
OPK’s: CD 12!!! (Didn’t have one last cycle!)
Pre-Seed – Just for lube, did not use applicator. (CD 10 & CD 13 – Helped with the mix of EWCM)
Soft-Cup – CD 10 & CD 12
CM: (C – CD7- 8) (EWCM - CD 9-11) (W - CD 12-13)
CM: DPO (C – 1 DPO – 11 DPO ) Loads on 4 – 7 DPO) (Stringy white CM 6-7DPO)
BD’ed : CD 9, CD 10, CD 12 & CD 13– (Trying to sway <3 boy <3)
********Fertility Friend pinpointed ovulation using advanced method on CD 13******

DPO symptoms:
1 DPO - 3 DPO – Nothing. Not feeling pregnant this time at all. When I usually think every month I am. I don’t think I timed BDing right at all. (BUT in the past I thought I was dead on with the timing)
4 DPO - 5 DPO – AF Cramps, major bloating and BACKACHE (hurts bad enough on 5DPO to take Tylenol)
6 DPO – 7 DPO – Really creamy, but STRINGY WHITE discharge. A lot more on 6 DPO
7DPO *IMPLANTATION* – Extremely CRAMPY! Like if this isn’t implantation, I wouldn’t know what is! RIGHT SIDE is where I believe I implanted! Going to be cool to find out!
8DPO – Cramps have subsided. Took a WONDFO HPT in evening after work. Was a “is there or is there not something there?” I doubted it because it was shadow and I have had an evap from them before.
9DPO – BFP (SOOOO light) on TWO Wondfo’s (FMU and SMU) NEGITIVE on the FRER, so I was still not sure and not getting my hopes up! (A little questionable ligament pulling???)
10DPO – VV LIGHT PINK BFP on a FRER and WONDFO!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOO HOOO! Lots of ligament pulling!!! Extremely fatigued! Digital is still negative.
11DPO – Nice BRIGHT PINK BFP on FRER and Wondfo is nice and dark! Not taking a digital until this weekend to let HCG build up!

Labs are tomorrow and first Prenatal appointment is June 26th at 3pm! Praying for a healthy, sticky bean!


I have been on this site almost every day for the last 6 months and I am so excited to finally be able to post my story!

I am 25, DB is 27. We have been together going on six years and currently planning on getting married in the near future. We have a 4 year old DD. DB asked for another baby 6 months ago and that is where we began this journey.

**Side note, I was on the mirena for about 4 years, had it removed. I took the pill for a total of a week and then we dropped all forms of birth control.**

Each month I thought I was pregnant. I started symptom spotting and trying to make lines on the test that didn't appear. Each month I was let down when AF showed. 2 months ago, I just barely seen a faint but there BFP on a test and about 6 hours later I started bleeding. That was the end of that one. Broke my heart. I wanted to give up. I wanted to quit trying. I even asked DB about going back on birth control because I felt my hormones were all crazy and I didn't think I could take it much longer. DB convinced me to keep trying for a little bit longer. This was the last month I was going to try before I started the pill again. And here I am, up in the middle of the night typing this because I am way excited to even think about sleep.

Warning: TMI alerts below.

Last cycle started on 4/6. I have roughly a 32-33 day cycle.

DB and BD'd a LOT this month. Honestly, we weren't doing it because we had to but because we wanted to. I don't OPK and I don't temp. I do track my CM and I feel ovulation pains each month.

I started feeling ovulation pain on day 17 of my cycle and ovulated on day 18. We were BD'ing every two days for two days from the end of AF through about 3 days ago. (So way through fertile week)

1 DPO: I got sick this day. Came down with a nasty runny nose, cough and fever.

2 DPO: BD'd this evening, still pretty sick. Not feeling much else.

3 DPO: BD'd this evening. Still sick. Nausea but talked it up to being sick. I was walking through the store and I really wanted some olives. I HATE OLIVES. I bought a can anyway and went home and ate 1/4 of it. DB was laughing at me and commented "You must be pregnant!"

4 DPO: Still sick. BB's started to hurt slightly. Nausea like no other, again talked it up to being sick. I had NO energy and stayed in bed all day.

5 DPO: CM very sticky/creamy this day. I had some weird side pain that I can't really explain. Still feeling nausea but starting to fade. BB's hurting a little more than previous day. And the AHHH moment for me...I sleep with the fan on every night. I woke up at 2am with the most awful hot flash I have ever had. I vaguely remember them from previous pregnancy but NOT like this.

6 DPO: CM Creamy. Hot flashes continue. Some cramps. Again no energy. STILL SICK.

7 DPO: CM Creamy and slightly yellow in color. Feeling almost vibration in my uterus. Starting to feel a bit emotional this day. I was sitting outback at work after all my clients went to bed (work in DD group home) and was enjoying the cool night air while reading on the two week wait. I all the sudden got so upset and mad because it hadn't happen to me that I almost threw my phone across the backyard.

8 DPO: CM Creamy. Left nipple hurt, rest of BB's were fine. Small amount of cramps.

9 DPO: Itchy skin that won't stop. Rash across my chest. Don't honestly remember scratching there but it is probably what it is from. Having a movie night with my bestie, stepped outside to let the dogs go potty, pouring down rain outside and on comes another hot flash. UGH! BFN-Depressed! POAS again later in the evening and was squinting as hard as I could to see a line... Yup...POASaholic and symptom spotting getting worse!

10 DPO: CM Creamy. Decided I wasn't convinced with my BFN yesterday and POAS again.. NEGATIVE. @*%##@!! Cried..BB's hurt so bad about now. Won't let DB anywhere near me. Cramps continue. Convinced the AF is about to show! Lots of back pain and right leg pain.

11 DPO: CM watery/Creamy throughout the day. POAS first thing in AM, again thought I seen another line but again thinking hopeful wishing. When I went to wipe I noticed a large brown blog of almost booger consist. Cried again. Went back to bed and threw a fit for about an hour before DD woke up. Something told me on my way to work to pick up another test. Got to work and decided to POAS but quickly put it in my purse knowing it would be a BFN and didn't even wait for the time limit. Was getting ready to leave work and went to throw it away and noticed a line....wait.... A LINE! It was so faint, I had to break open the stick and put it into the light to be convinced that it wasn't a evap line and that it had color on it. POAS again about an hour ago and the line is getting darker! Didn't even have to break the stick open this time to be sure. ;D

BFP at 10dpo with soft cups & preseed :)

Hi All,

I've been reading on this site a lot in my last few tww's and can finally share my own story to help others out.

We already have three children, none of which were actually planned (was on various forms of the pill when all three were conceived).

Anyway we decided to try for one last baby to complete our family & just assumed it would happen right away. 4 months later I was started to get a little disheartened at getting BFN's towards the end of each cycle and then the dreaded AF.

So this month I decided to step it up a level. The previous 4 months we'd just been doing it the old fashioned way of BD'ing around my fertile window & hoping. This month I went all out & got OPK's, BBT thermometer (although my chart never made much sense), Preseed, Softcups and signed up to Fertility Friend.

Below is a list of what we did each cycle day that led to me getting a BFP at 10dpo :)

CD's 1-5: AF

CD 6: BD

Cd7: BD

Cd8: Nothing

Cd9: BD used softcup. Neg OPK

Cd 10: BD used softcup. Neg OPK

Cd11: Nothing. Neg OPK

Cd12: BD used softcup & preseed. Neg OPK

Cd13: BD x2 used softcup & preseed. Neg OPK

Cd14: BD used softcup & preseed. Neg OPK

Cd15: BD x2 used softcup & preseed. Positive OPK

Cd16: BD used softcup.

Cd17: Nothing

Cd18: BD softcup & preseed

The rest of the cycles BD'ing was just spontaneous and more for fun & is probably irrelevant as the above was what really covered our fertile time. Got my BFP on cd24, 10days after positive OPK.

I really rate the softcups & have just passed on the rest of my box load to a friend hoping to get her BFP too so fingers crossed they'll work for her too :)

Symptoms wise I had bouts of nausea, tender breasts, light cramps from 5dpo.
From 7dpo I was really tired & unusually very hungry.
On 8dpo I got a bad headache that lasted 3days & also lots of ulcers in my mouth (not sure if this is related?!)
From 7dpo I also felt all the typical pre-AF symptoms I get, heavy feeling, more cramps etc. Every time I went to the toilet I expected AF to be there, even though it would have been early for her, but fortunately not, just my BFP a few days later :)

With regards to tests... I admittedly was becoming a bit of a POAS addict & decided I needed to cut back on my spending on tests so ordered a bulk load of One Step 10miu from EBay, they satisfied my crazy need to POAS every morning but were giving me BFN's (even though I was probably still too early).
Anyway on 10dpo I decided I'd got to the point where I could use my precious FRER left over from last month. I dipped both in a pot of my FMU, the One Step cheapie showed seriously the most barely there/questionable/squinted/silvery line after 10mins, yet the FRER came up with that wonderful second pink line within a minute!
So I think FRER are definitely more reliable than the cheapies, despite the fact that the One Step are supposed to measure a lower concentration of HcG.
For more comparison, I saved the pot of FMU, rushed into town and bought Superdrug & Tesco own brand tests, as well as a Clearblue digital (see! Told you I'm a POAS addict!) Anyway got home & dipped all three..
Tesco gave me a very faint positive, Superdrug gave me a clear positive (but still not as clear as the FRER), the Digital gave me a negative. I was still pretty convinced after my 3x BFP's so did some googling and found out that many people had to wait a few days till the Digi picked up what the FRER had first said. This ended up being true for me too, I patiently waited and at 13dpo got my 'pregnant' on the 2nd digital from the box :) I think I should let you know though that at that point when my HcG was high enough for a digital I was still getting hardly anything on the One Step 10miu's, I therefore don't really rate those, they're good to satisfy a POAS addict if you can't wait till 10dpo as you feel like your doing something & they're ridiculously cheap! But not that reliable! I'd def go with FRER every time! Or if you can't afford that the Superdrug own brand, but just make sure you wait out the 3mins before checking :)

Right, so I now realise I've written an essay! Sorry if I've bored you but hopefully it'll give at least one person some tips/advice that will help them get their BFP :) xx

BFP 6months after Mirena

I have been ttc for about 6 months now with luck. I am so happy to finally have my BFP! I was really surprised because I really had no obvious symptoms:
0-7dpo nothing
7-14dpo I can eat everything and never feel full! My boobs don't hurt like they normally do before period, I cramped maybe once. I had little to no cm. on 14th day vagina was very sore, it hurt to wipe. I was also very tired felt like body was so heavy! Acid reflux was bad (but I usually have acid reflux)
15 dpo I spotted bright red and then light pink, it was very small dot, but that's how my periods usually start. No spots the rest of day which is weird, and I was very energetic. Acid reflux
16dpo no spotting, only difference is my boobs started to hurt, mostly on top
17dpo I still noticed my boobs hurt but were now heaving filling and nipples were reddish in color, hardly an cm, and very thirsty, oh and been having weird dreams
18dpo decided to test and sure enough BFP!!!!! Boobs still hurt, but no other symptoms

This month I started to work out, and take calcium supplements. Not sure of that helped, but it's worth a try :)

Bfp at 9dpo

Hello all, I've been stalking this site since I had my mirena iud removed September 2013. My periods came back right away ranging from 28 to 30 days. From October through December my husband and I were not trying but not preventing either, we already have a almost 4 year old son and are 25 years old. We had a chemical pregnancy in November, faintly positive test for two days that got lighter then AF showed early. I started temping and charting in January as well as using opk's except for this month! Anyways here is my dpo list

March 24th 1st day of cycle.

I didn't use opk's this month but had a clear huge thermal shift on April 12th so I ovulted on cycle day 19 which is a little late for me. However this was the clearest jump on temp I had ever had i I think over a whole degree jump!

Dpo days 1 through 9 I have nothing to report because I chose not to stress it this month and we were busy with Easter coming and family visiting!

At 9 dpo( Easter morning) I woke up earlier than everyone else and figured I would test just for fun with a first response lo an behold it had a faint but clear line at the ten minute mark!

I took another first response at 10 dpo with first morning urine and it was darker than the day before, still after chemical wasn't getting my hopes up! I notice this day I was extremly tired and took a nap which I never do! At 10 pm that night I took a clear blue digital that came up pregnant within three minutes.

11 dpo I used another first response with fmu and again it was darker than the previous days test. Wasn't as tired this day and started thinking another chemical!

12 dpo got another pregnant on digital with fmu starte feeling queasy and dizzy at various times of the day especially at night. Also had a weird vivid dream on this night.

That brings me to today at 13 dpo, I've been having some slight cramping on and off since 9dpo. Today I took a first response and clear blue digital with the estimator. First response came up instantly and is darker than the control. Estimator said pregnant 2-3 which ligns up since I'm two weeks from conception tommorrow and due for AF tommorrow
The only other thing I can add is that I've felt extremly wet down there the last week tmi I know. My temps have also been whats normal for me after ovulation but have stayed high instead of dropping like they normally do! I have also been taking evening primrose capsules till ovulation to help with cm and vitamin b6 and folic acid vitamins!

I'm still not trying to get my hopes up cause I'm only 4 weeks and I've miscarried before. I'm driving myself crazy with eptopic and chemical pregnancy worries, so much so that I haven't told my husband or anyone but you lovely ladies about this. I'm not sure how long I'll hold out from telling my husband but know if it sticks we will keep it to ourselves for a few months as we didn't tell anyone till I was six months along with our son!
Anyways sorry this post is so long I'm hoping it may help others ttc in some way! Hope all you have a blessed day!

Handstands, preseed, and instead cups

I stalked this website and many others for several months trying to get a BFP. Trying everything possible naturally to get pregnant as quickly as possible. I had been trying for a year with my fi. He is 44 and I am 22. I initially thought he was the problem. I got checked and was totally healthy. I have regular cycles and ovulate monthly, while he on the other hand refused to get his SA checked until recently. His ego obviously. We compromised and said if we didn't get pregnant this cycle he is getting checked.

I had been taking herbal supplements like vitex, soy isoflavone, royal jelly, conceive easy, maca, ect on and off for the last nine months. This month I stopped all the supplements and just ate healthy. I'm an on/off vegan too by the way, but I occasionally eat seafood when I want.

I also used preseed and instead cups religiously from cd 11 to cd 21 in case I missed the Lh surge. I did a handstand against the wall in the morning and at night from cd 11 to cd 22 (I know silly, but desperate at this point). I have a 29 day cycle. I ovulated late this cycle on cd 19 instead of the usual cd14/15. I also ate sunflower seeds and pineapple core from 1dpo to 6dpo to help implantation.

This morning with fmu, I got my BFP at 10dpo on an ic. My fi and I are overjoyed. His swimmers just needed a little push from gravity, preseed, and instead cups. Thanks ladies for all of your insight and funny comments that kept me sane during ttc this past year.

Here are my symptoms ladies:
O day: woke up very hot, sinus pressure, stuffy nose, ears popping, bad nightmares, and just generally felt really wet down below, ovulation pain

1dpo: increased sex drive, irritable, increased appetite after recently not being in the mood to eat, high energy

2dpo: symptoms from day before continue but moodier. Feel really out of it. Sad, don't want to interact with fi or anyone. Took a walk and I guess my sadness was so obvious a random Korean man hugged and kissed me on the cheek to cheer me up didn't like that.

3dpo: gassy and sense of sense sharpened

4dpo: nauseous and strong sense of smell. I went off on my fi. Gave him a verbal tongue lashing via text. I usually give him the benefit of the doubt, especially since he's stressed out from work, but I gave him a new was really bad.

5dpo: more weird dreams

6dpo: wake up really hot. And I'm still super hungry and gassy. Fi noted weight gain from last week :/.

7dpo: serious cavemen lol or rabbit like. I had a drop in temp today looked like an implantation dip. Fingers crossed

8dpo: irritable and in a bad mood again. Totally want to unleash on my poor fi, but I keep it to myself.

9dpo: more detailed weird dreams still really hot like 99.4. I have the chills too now. Trying not to test even though my temps are elevated still.

10dpo (today): tested with fmu and I got my First BFP... Faint but visible. Af due tomorrow. My FI is all proud of himself lol. I'm very happy to finally be able to include my own tww story :D. Baby dust to all of u ladies still ttc and or in their own tww.

BFP After Spotting!

I have stalked this site for months, so I feel obligated to share my success story. I am 32 years old, husband is 33. We have a 3 year old son and have been trying to conceive since the summer of 2013 when I had Mirena removed. I got a positive HPT in September 2013, that ended in a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks. I then had a chemical pregnancy in December 2013. We have been somewhat trying since January and today I finally got my BFP! I am hoping and praying this one sticks! About the only thing we did was use Preseed, we BD'ed at night and I stayed lying down, didn't get up for entire evening each time, and I take a prenatal vitamin. I have fairly regular 28 day cycles, my period is usually 3-4 days and fairly light. Here are the details -
CD1 -3 period
CD4 - already cramping like O pains
CD5 - Breakout on chest and back EWCM BD before going to bed, stayed in bed all night
CD6 - Noticeable amount of wetness/cm BD before going to bed, stayed in bed all night
CD7 - bad diarrhea, dizzy, areolas are huge and dark, veins visible in breasts
CD8 - BD in PM, breasts/areolas still huge, CM creamy
CD9 - Diarrhea and nausea in am, exhausted, moody
CD11,12 - BD both nights, EWCM no need for preseed, felt sick - nausea, cramping, lots of pooping both days
CD15 - woke up with huge zit between mouth and nose, BD in PM, stayed lying down again for entire night
CD16 - Nipples very sore/tender, bad headache in afternoon/evening, BD again in PM stayed in bed all night
CD18 - Sharp twinge of brief pain on my left side at 6:45am
CD19 - BD
CD20 - Dizzy several times throughout the day, bloody cm when checking cervix in the evening, stuffy nose
CD21 - Peeing a lot in the morning, super moody and snapped at my husband in the afternoon, slight nausea and heightened sense of smell, legs/hips/boobs very veiny, still bloody CM when checking, nothing coming out on panties though.
CD22 - woke up at 4:30am with period like cramping, EWCM, diarrhea and headache. Realized boobs are not sore at all, normally they are after o, nipples/areolas are dark and large. Runny/stuffy nose, cramping throughout the day, still having bloody cm only when checking
CD24 - CM is now brown (old blood) when checking
CD26 - Heightened sense of smell, almost threw up on train due to smell, increased appetite, little clumps of brown/almost black cm when wiping
CD27 - BFP!!! at 6am with FMU almost immediately, used a FRER

I hope this helps others waiting. I thought it was strange when I started spotting on CD 20, I'm guessing it was implantation or breakthrough bleeding. Best of luck and baby dust to everyone!

BFP 15 DPO- Don't give up hope!

I can't believe that I'm actually writing on here since I've been the one religiously looking through these stories day after day searching for a story that seemed similar to mine to keep the hope alive that I would get my BFP. Well it finally happened and couldn't have happened better! These forums truly has been so helpful so I want to share my story and all my symptoms so hopefully they will help someone like you!

I'm 28 and this will be my first. I have a 28 day cycle and although I don't temp I'm assuming my O happened between the 15 and 17th of march. I BD on both the 15 and 17th. So I'm for timelines sake, I'll start my O on the 16th Here we go:

DPO 1: nada- BD
DPO 2: headache and creamy CM
DPO 3: felt nauseous, acne, creamy CM
DPO 4: felt a few breif twinges (could be imagination) also kept feeling wet down there. More creamy CM
DPO 5: nipples are a little sore, feel like a cold is coming on, creamy CM
DPO 6: cold feeling gone, nipples still sore, creamy CM
DPO 7: twinge in left ovary. nipples still sore, just on nipples not anywhere else. Tonight I had really vivid dreams, one in which I took a pregnancy test and got a BFP! So weird, I also had a bad nightmare and BF had to wake me up because I was yelling in my sleep
DPO 8: appetite increased today. I overrate them felt sick lol. Creamy CM
DPO 9: really dull cramping which increased in afternoon, breast beginning to feel tender, but not sore like nipple. A lot of creamy CM, kept getting that dripping feeling
DPO 10: same as yesterday but I had a stomach ache today and more cravings for sweets- for sure thought AF will be here soon because I always crave sweets around that time. Took a dollar store cheapie BFN
DPO 11: I was really grumpy today. My students (I teach middle school) asked me are you on your period? Lol we just so happen to be learning about menstruation, fertilization and pregnancy right now in science. I had cramps today (bad enough to use a heating pad) and breasts starting to be more tender nipples really sore. Joint pain in knees kinda felt like growing pains
DPO 12: tender breasts/nipples creamy CM
DPO 13: AF due today. woke up with a horrible stomach ache and indigestion. I never get heartburn so this was weird. Tested with another dollar store and it was a BFN.
DPO 14: felt heavy down there like AF could come any minute. Felt super bloated, crampy (low cramps) and breasts/nipple soreness
DPO 15: where the heck is AF? Heartburn again are you kidding me? I was super impatient today. Another student pulled me aside: "are you pregnant?" I asked why they would say that? Apparently because of my mood swings. Lol I told them no of course not. Felt so unusually heavy down there like something was off. Went and got a FRER pack. Didn't even wait for it because I knew it would be negative, especially since it wasn't FMU. So I just peed and set it down and went to take my dog outside. I came back 5 minutes later and holy shit!- BFP! The two lines were very clear! I literally couldn't believe it so I mustered up another pee about 39 minutes later and sure enough another line!

Since I didn't know my O date I assumed my BFP was somewhere between 14-16 DPO. Don't give up hope! I never had implantation bleeding and after two BFN I for sure thought I was out until I saw those two lines. Looking back now I can say the biggest thing that made me have the teensiest bit of hope was those sore nipples (I never get sore breasts/nipples before AF) but the biggest was the heartburn! That's really unusual for me.

It's almost been a week since my BFP and the biggest change since then is my entire breasts have become horrendously sore. I've had more gas and I feel bloated but no cramping anymore. I also have noticed I'm much more sensitive.

I hope you all get the BFP you are hoping for and not get discouraged by all these people getting their BFp's at 9 DPO. Yours will come!

The Wicked Witch Coming For You? Maybe not. It could be BFP

First off, I am OVER THE MOON about this BFP!!! Holy guacamole!!! I had such WEIRD symptoms, and felt like even if just a few people see this, and feel better. Then I have paid it forward. I have read countless BFP stories, and I really hope this one makes your TWW a little less excruciating.

I didn't know when I ovulated this month. I wasn't using OPKs. I had just had my Mirena IUD out maybe 3 weeks previously! Either way, I used an ovulation calculator. As luck would have it when the day came around I felt like I wasn't ovulating AT ALL!!! I still BD anyway. About a week later I had every single sign of ovulation. So, just in case.... we BD away for a few days.

The weirdest thing happened. After that ovulation day... I just knew. It was as if I was doubting myself, but really. I knew!! My first symptom was that I had this tingling sensation where my right ovary would be! It was like I could feel the blood moving. That went on for a few days. Then I was SOOOOO hungry right when I woke up, which never happens. Right after that my sense of smell started getting better. Then a turn for the worse.... I broke out. I really felt uneasy about this, except it was a HORRIBLE break out. Which I also never get. By the next day I started having cramps, and I was SURE af was coming!!! I wrote an entire post about how I knew I was out. I kept going to the bathroom. I just was waiting and waiting for it! After a few more days I got these pains in my back, and I went to the bathroom thinking "this is it! AF is here". When I got there. It was a glob of creamy white lotion type of CM. This was when I started to get excited!! Then I was one day late for my period. Got a BFN. Thought I was out AGAIN. 2 days late, and started to realize if I ovulated late then my period would be late. That night I took two blue dye tests, and they were faintttt. Sense they were blue I figured I was tricking myself. I went to get some $tree tests. Took one, and a big BFN. I threw it on the table and called it good. The next morning with FMU I took another $tree after about 30 secs it looked as if it was a BFN. I was discouraged, and heartbroken. I left the test, and pee out. After awhile I remembered I left my pee out. I went back in, and there was a BLAZING positive!!! I started screaming and jumping. I got another test, and with the same FMU did it. Right away another BLAZING BFP. I ran to get a frer and another BLAZING bfp! That day it was confirmed by a blood test, and has only been getting darker!! Later I realized that BFN $tree test was actually positive! I just didn't see it! I wouldn't say check them after the time limit, but let the test sit for a bit! Don't be impatient like me!

You're not out until that witch shows up!!! Sometimes pregnancy symptoms are just like AF but worse!! Keep positive. Try to remember this will come right when it's meant to, and try to focus on the things you DO have! I hope this helps ladies!!

One other thing.... I only have ONE FALLOPIAN TUBE!!!! Have hope!!!
