Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Softcups

BFP using soft cups, SMEP, and Mucinex after 3 months TTC!

We've only been trying for 3 months, but I have to say I was feeing pretty discouraged that we weren't instantly pregnant. This will be baby #3 for us (I'm 30 years old), and my first two babies we got pregnant the first go round, so I just assumed it would be that easy this time! After obsessing over every symptom the last two cycles, and being so disappointed with a BFNs, I tried to take it easy this time and not read to much into every little thing. But here are my symptoms, by DPO:

CD 16: O Day! Actually had gotten a positive ovulation strip on CD 14 and 15, and by CD 16 it was negative, but this is the day that FF chose as my O day. Also, CD 15 and CD 16 I had what felt like bad menstrual cramps (o pain?) but I was also gassy and constipated so cramping could have been related to that.

DPO 1: Nothing, slow rise in temperature.
DPO 2: Nothing, temp still going up.
DPO 3:Nothing, record high temp at 98.84
DPO 4: Feeling warm and flushed, but it was warm out so I wrote it off as nothing. A bit bloated. Temp slightly lower.
DPO 5: Temp dropping still. Bloated and gassy. Very emotional, cried watching TV (again, not that unusual for me).
DPO 6: Temp dropping further (still well above cover line though). Feeling grumpy and irritable that my temp as gone down three days in a row, I feel like I for sure cannot be pregnant. Very snappy and irritable mood, I figure that it is PMS. Boobs achy on and off, which is normal PMS symptom for me.
DPO 7: Temp is back up at 98.75. Feel in a much better mood. Weird stabbing pain in left nipple, which is not normal for me. Pain continues on and off throughout the day.
DPO 8: Gassy, temp is still high. I don't feel pregnant so I have coffee and feel weird and jittery (possibly because I've been abstaining from caffeine for so long).
DPO 9: Boobs achy (only a little). Gassy and a little bloated, face is breaking out a bit more than usual before AF. A few twinges and pains in my uterus. Menstrual like back cramps. Feeling very tired, take a nap in the afternoon, and still fall asleep at 9:30 at night.
DPO 10: Temp is still high (usually by now it starts to go down). Decide to take a cheap pregnancy test (Easy at Home Brand), and I am amazed that there is a very definite faint line!! Continued cramps and weird tingling in armpits and occasional stabbing pains in boobs. Feeling warm and flushed. Twinges in uterus. Can't keep eyes open after 9:00 PM.
DPO 11: Temp still up, take a Clear Blue Easy test and definite line appears! Also take another cheap test, and line is darker than yesterday's! Feeling very warm, gassy, and having twinges/pains in uterus. Very tired, napping a lot.

So that's it! Most of my pregnancy symptoms were so similar or identical to PMS, so I really wasn't holding out much hope (although at the beginning of this cycle I did have a good feeling about this being our cycle to conceive, but then after not really feeling pregnant I lost hope). So don't stress if you don't have that many symptoms, it's different every time. With my daughter I knew I was pregnant before I even tested, but not this time!

Things we did this cycle that might have helped our BFP that we didn't do last time:
DH: Took Maca Root, Zinc, and multi vitamin.

Me: Took Evening Primrose Oil to O day, then switched to Fish Oil. Also drank Red Raspberry leaf tea the whole cycle until I got a positive Pregnancy test. Also took prenantal, vit. d, vit. k, magnesium.

Followed Sperm Meets Egg Plan, using Soft Cups, Preseed, and took Mucinex during fertile period.

I have a retroverted uterus, so we DTD with me laying on my stomach and my hips propped up on a pillow. I also laid on my stomach (not my back) afterwards for at least 1 hour. I put the Soft Cups in after about an hour with a bit of preseed in it, and kept them in 8-12 hours.

BFP 13DPO after BFN on 7,8,9DPO!!

I've been dreaming of this blog post!! Woo!!

I hope my story can help anyone who is as symptom spotting and POAS obsessed as me!

DH is 31, I will be during 30 in 2 weeks. This is our second child, we have 1 son who is a year and a half. We conceived him with zero aids, first month trying. This time around we have been TTC for 4-5 cycles. No temping, but we do use OPks (internet cheapie- MediTesti). We tried preseed and softcups for the first time this month and voila - a BFP!

My cycles are pretty consistent, around 27 days but recently I have been spotting leading up to AF. According to my OPks I O around CD15-17 (short luteal phase, which I was concerned about).

Mar 20 - light spotting
Mar 21 - CD1 - Full on AF
Mar 26- CD6 - End of AF

No BD for the next week. DH was leaving for a business trip abroad and nervous which caused some performance anxiety issues that we incur from time to time

Apr 2- CD13 - BD. After BD, I put some preseed in a softcup and inserted it for about 8 hours. It was my first time using one, it was so comfortable I completely didn't notice it. Getting it out was tricky, but not impossible

Apr 4- CD15 - BD. Pretty Dark LH Surge. Used preseed & softcup again
Apr5 - CD16 - BD. DARK LH Surge. Used preseed & softcup again, pretty sure I O'd that day due to cramps (I don't temp)

DH left that day for 9 days, so no BD'ing during the TWW. It was just me home with the baby and the dog, which left my lots of time to SS, POAS & Google

Apr 8 - 3DPO - Bloated. The band of my leggings was cutting into my stomach. I checked my calendar and realized AF was due on the 16th, not the 18th as I had previously thought. This changed my entire plan. We were going to California for my cousin's wedding the day AF was due. Earlier, I thought I wouldn't test until we came back. But then when I realized I miscalculated, i threw out my entire plan and just tested everyday. I was hoping to get a BFP to surprise DH with when he got home from his business trip. I didn't get one.

Apr 11- 6DPO - Tested on an IC - BFN - Lots of creamy white CM, both on my panties & when wiping

Apr 12 - 7DPO - Tested on an IC - BFN - cramping in the evening. I thought this might be my implantation day.

Apr 13 - 8DPO - Tested using a FRER - BFN - creamy white CM
Apr 14 - 9DPO - Testing on an IC - BFN - creamy white CM

At this point I was thoroughly discouraged. With my son, I got a faint BFP around 9DPO. This time - nothin. Stark White. No "squinter" - nothing. And I'm VERY good at finding squinters!

We left for vacation that day and I packed tampons, pads, and pregnancy tests. I didn't end up using any of it!

Apr 15 - 10DPO - Cramps in the evening. I assumed AF was on her way, as she was due the next day. I had some wine with friends.

Apr 16 - 11DPO - Cramps gone, enjoyed the day with my family and didn't think about anything. No sign of AF. I was VERY irritable and moody, but chalked it up to the stress of traveling.

Apr 17 - 12DPO - No sign of AF, ran to the bathroom every chance I could to check for spotting. Zero spotting this cycle. I was very tired but assumed that was due to the time change. I had significant back aches, just a dull pain in my lower back similar to when i have AF.

Apr 18 - 13DPO - Officially 2 days late. My cycles are VERY consistent but I was still nervous to get my hopes up. DH told me to go buy another FRER and we took the test together in the evening. It only took about 30 seconds for a faint line to show up, which quickly developed into a blazing BFP!!

I'm still in shock I can't believe it!! I'm still having some cramping and back aches but Im hoping that's just my uterus preparing for baby #2!

Fingers crossed & God Willing our EDD is Christmas Day!!!!

I believe prayer and vitex work and maybe soft cups being 30 now,hope,for another bfp

5th round of clomid

My husband and I had been ttc for 10 months since having paragaurd IUD removed. This month was the first month I really thought was a bust. We were on vacation, not a relaxing one either, and I had a mishap with a soft cup on the day I knew I was ovulating. This was our first month using soft cups and I was a bit nervous about doing it right, but I really do believe that these and some preseed were very helpful, and I would recommend them to any lady who is ttc.
I can totally relate when ladies say they had more symptoms on their BFN months, I had it all, nausea, sore boobs, mood swings, bloating, crying hysterically. Then I read these symptoms can all be side effects of climid. But this month nothing really made the lightbulb come on. I even decided we would take six month off and started planning a really great summer around 8 dpo because I was positive I was not pregnant.

So here are my symptoms though they weren't much:

cd 15-high fertility on CB ovulation test bd'd with pressed and soft cups

cd 16-travelling from 2am till 12 but make time to bd with SoftCups and Preseed. Feel disheartened that I can't lay down for long after.

cd 17- ovulation day, great day at disney world, and had a few too many drinks that night, bd'd with SoftCups and Preseed

1dpo-10dpo-nothing really, felt tired but I thought it was just from traveling. Felt very defeated/depressed because I thought I was out again. The only thing that i noticed was different was that I usually had cm in my undies at this point till af, but nothing there. Also around 9dpo till now have had bm's 2 or three times a day.

11dpo- notice i can't find the opening of my cervix when checking cp. Found it pointing all the way toward tailbone, never felt it like this before, also felt slimy mid height and hard. still feeling sad but no other symptoms.

12-dpo awoke up early and tested. walked away knowing it was negative, went back to look and saw a faint second line! tested again later that night and line is darker! no cm in undies, very tired that night in bed at 8

13-dpo- tested on CB digital and the word pregnant came up immediately! no cm in undies,hunger pains, irritable and very tired in bed at 8

14dpo- still not many symptoms, tired, irritable ( bitchy is a better word) and hungry more than usual, no cm in undies

I think I have the normal fears that af will show up, but I'm trying to stay positive and just repeat to myself that my body is ready for this. Hopefully it will help and I hope that I helped someone else. Its a dark and lonely place when your ttc for awhile, no one quite understands how it feels unless they've been through it. Try not to let it take over your life, talk to someone who gets it if you can, and focus your energy on something else.

BFP at 8dpo on first cycle!!

Hey y'all! DH and I were NTNP, but mostly NP. I ovulated either on the 22nd or 23rd of February and we DTD every day the 20th-25th. I used a soft cup after every time, just to be sure!

My symptoms so far have been nuts.
1-3dpo: nothing
4 dpo: I poo'd like, 4 times a day from 4dpo until now, which is odd because usually I'm lucky to even go 4 times a week! I also noticed that my pee is a greenish color.
5dpo: SO. THIRSTY. Seriously, my mouth is a desert. I have a UTI feeling tingle, but I checked my urine and there is no infection.
6dpo: DH made eggs in the morning and I almost got sick at the smell of it. It smelled like dirty feet! Also having some pinches in my uterus, like tiny little cramps.
7 dpo: Not hungry. Boobs hurt so bad, my nips can feel every little thing, even through my bra! Still having green pee and still super thirsty.
8dpo: my entire body hurts so much. I feel like I ran a marathon. Even my fingers hurt. I almost left work because of the pain. Also, having PMS-like cramps on my hips. Very uncomfortable. BFN or shadow on test this morning.
9dpo: generally feeling like crap. Legs still sore, lots of little cramps, feel like I have done a million crunches. Feeling very blah, not hungry. POAS around 8:00pm and got a verrrry faint positive!
10dpo: POAS in the AM and got a light BFP! Very nauseous, no appetite, very sensitive to salt. Had to throw out my chinese food for lunch because of how salty it was. Feeling very tired.
11dpo: Couldn't sleep last night. Probably only got about 2 hours of sleep. Woke up this morning feeling very nauseous. Could hardly eat my yogurt and drink my coffee. Feeling very happy this morning, got a darker BFP. My boobs hurt incredibly bad and have already started changing.

I'm so excited to share this with you all! Baby dust to each one of you!

Lesbian BFP

This was my wife's and my second month TTC and we got our BFP at 11dpo/CD31. I feel like we have been TTC for three years since we found our sperm donor that long ago but didn't actually start inseminations until 2 months ago. For other lesbian couples who read this page and want the low-down on known donor at-home insemination with fresh (not frozen) sperm, here's what worked for us!

We inseminated on Cycle Days 13, 15, 16, 18, and 19 with 24-48 hours between each one. I ovulated on CD19 (later than I thought I would) and had some spotting that day. I had EWCM on CD 18 and 19 positive OPK on CD19, and ferning salvia and CD 18 and 19. (We used a little microscope used for putting a drop of your spit and looking at it - if it looks like nothing you're not fertile, if it is making a ferning pattern you are fertile. It was great because I could test unlimited times with the one thing unlike OPKs.)

This month we added in using PreSeed. My wife put some in me and we'd let it warm up to body temp for 5 minutes, then do the insemination. Our donor made his deposit into a sterile plastic cup we had bought online and had put between my boobs to warm up first. His wife (our best friend, 5 month prego!) would immediately bring the cup in to my wife (keeping it body temp between her boobs on the walk between rooms) and I'd already have my pants off and butt propped up on a couple of pillows. My wife used a sterile plastic syringe (bought in the same insemination kit online) to suck up the semen and then would feel for my cervix with one hand's fingers and put in the syringe with the other hand. (Sorry to be graphic but this is what I wished I had known that is so hard to find!) She would get the syringe close to the cervix but not directly on it and SLOWLY push it out as the nurse midwife had shown us how to do in a preconception appointment, kind of aiming to coat the cervix. I'd lay there for 15+ minutes and try to have an orgasm. Then she'd put in a soft cup (same kit again) and I'd get up and dressed. This was all done in the spare bedroom of our donor's apartment. (They live 2 hours away so we drive to them instead of them coming to us at our home. Sometimes we slept over, sometimes made the drive up and back in a night. Exhausting!) I left the cup in overnight each time.

This month I also upped my acupuncture appointments from once a week to twice a week and my acupuncturist used extra moxa. I never did BBT. I drank both FertiliTea and red raspberry leaf tea this month and didn't last month. I have been having one cup of coffee per day and taking a prenatal vitamin for 3 months (and no smoking or drinking). I also had the worst obsessing freaking out TWW our first month and this time was so much more relaxed. (I was positive I was pregnant last month and didn't think I was this month.) I used the Kindara app the first month and then this month also used Ovia and Glow. All three gave me different predictions with the same data so it helped me not to rely on one app's guess too much but also get a good sense of the range of fertile days and the range of when the peak day might be coming. Also different from last month is that we always waited at least 24 hours between inseminations (last time we did one at night, sleep over, and one in the morning before we left for work, leaving less than 12 hours in between). At the insemination on CD18 this month I told my wife I had a feeling we had just conceived.

Symptoms: Nothing out of the ordinary. Sore boobs, less so than for my typical PMS. Really little bit of nausea with breakfast on CD 10 and 11. White creamy CM and feeling bloated the last several days. No spotting since ovulation.

9dpo: Negative FRER with FMU
11dpo: I thought I had line eyes! It was so so faint (FRER) that I threw it out and told my wife it was negative, which I thought it was. (I fished it back out the next day and we saw there actually is kinda a vvvvvvfl.)
12dpo: Positive FRER!!! Faint second line with FMU. My wife casually told me she saw a faint line but she was confused because she had been seeing my faint line OPKs where a faint second line is a negative and the darkness of the line actually matters. I was like UM NO A LINE IS A LINE but kind of didn't believe it either. Took a ClearBlue digital in the afternoon that said Not Pregnant. Took two cheapo pink dye sticks in the evening that also had faint second lines (one barely visible like 11dpo FRER, one clear). I'd usually start spotting before my period around this point in my cycle.
13dpo: Peed on three brands of stick with FMU and all BFP! We called the closest people who knew we were TTC to tell them that day. The donor's first words were "I did it!" LOL
14dpo: Ran out of FRER but took the two cheapo sticks with FMU and both BFP. Darker second line each of the 4 days in a row. No AF! Hoping it sticks.

BFP with home insemination

I got my BFP on Saturday December 19, 2015(12 DPO) and honestly it was a complete shock. my partner and i did home insemination with soft cups on 12/4 12/5 and 12/6. starting 7dpo-now ive had back pain, on 9DPO my food tasted bland all of a sudden, on 10 DPO i had a sore throat that came and went away the same day, and on 11 DPO my DW was like "your boobs look huge!" and i had started noticing that too and that was major for me because im already a 38 DD. i also started having frequent urination even if i didnt drink anything. i also had twinges/pokes starting at about 9 DPO and started getting really hungry. I had NO sore boobs, no creamy CM, no nausea, not really tired, no vivid dreams, no dizziness etc all of the symptoms i was kinda looking for. The main thing that made me suspicious was my lack of PMS symptoms. i usually always cramp a few days before, get one HUGE pimple and crave chocolate and none of that happened. it really does happen when you least expect it. Im currently only 4weeks and 1 day and still very nervous because its so early. I pray for a sticky bean and a H&H 9 months. I thank everyone on here that has been so supportive during this time. FX for all of you still trying and i pray you get your BFP,

BFP after 2 years ttc, low morphology

I want to preface this by saying this bfp did end up as a chemical pregnancy, and while not ideal, has given us hope, because we got pregnant on our own for the 1st time in 2 years!

Backstory: I am 25 (26 next month), husband is 27. We have been ttc since Oct 2013. In this time we have, I feel, done everything you could do (without an RE) out there, and there are a few things that I feel have made a difference.

First of all we discovered after a SA, that DH has low morphology, 3.5 %, 20 mil sperm count, and good motility. His Urologist has prescribed him Clomid to increase sperm count. It works with testosterone in men as it does estrogen in women. He takes 50mg every other day and has also been on fertilaid for men for the last 8 mo.

Everything has so far checked out ok with me with the exception of slightly low progesterone in the 2nd half of my cycle. (Still have 13 day luteal phase though ), as well as THS of 2.4 (for optimal fertility they say between 1-2 is where you want to be. To lower my TSH, I began taking kelp (iodine), and selenium.

On this cycle I had day 3 blood draw to check and see if my ovaries were doing as they should: everything came back great! TSH was at 1.5! I was happy with that.

CD16-BD with preseed and softcup
CD17-BD with preseed and softcup
CD18-+OPK, BD with preseed and softcup
CD19-O day, BD with preseed and softcup
1DPO-Woke up feeling like I had been hit by a bus, could tell I was coming down with a cold, as well as a raging UTI! Its like my immune system crashed! And I never get sick!
2DPO-went to work, huge mistake I was so sick, went to Dr after work, UTI confirmed along with sinus and ear infections, started augmentin. Coffee does NOT sound good!
3dpo-5dpo-feeling terrible bc of cold, nipples started to feel sore, breasts full, not that sore though. Still not drinking coffee. Super irritable with hubs.
6dpo-bbs starting to get really sore, wake up in morning with gurgling feeling in esophagus, kinda like heatburn. Hungry for eggs and meat first thing in the am, unusual, still can't stomach coffee. Irritability with DH continues.
7dpo-supposed to have 7dpo blood draw for progesterone, but it's a Saturday and the office is closed, have to do it on Monday (9dpo). Have dreams about having a baby girl.
8dpo-bbs still sore, still hungry in a.m., no coffee, had dreams about baby girl again. Super tired.
9dpo-same as above, serum progesterone blood test
10dpo-got results for progesterone (5.1) feel a little surprised at how low it is, start counting myself out this cycle and preparing for next. Pregnancy cant stick with low levels of prog! Out of nowhere, at 9p.m. I decided to take first response, fully expecting a bfn, only to see a faint bfp! I was completely in shock, broke down in tears! Called for husband to come here. He was a little surprised to find me hysterical and crying. When I handed him the test he looked down and said "baby?...is...is that a line?!" We were so happy and shocked! I don't know what prompted me to take a test, it was almost like Devine intervention. (I don't normally test this early, or at night, for that matter).
11dpo-even lighter bfp on frer, negative digital. HCG and progesterone blood test done in AM.
12dpo-bfn on frer, blood results 4 HCG, 1 progesterone :-( knew I would get period.
13dpo-AF arrived right on schedule! Chemical pregnancy.

Even though this ended in a chemical, I think it was meant to happen! I was meant to find out that we were able to fertilize an egg but it just couldn't implant, possibly due to low progesterone! My midwife prescribed me progesterone supplements for this new cycle to start after O. That way if we are able to fertilize an eggie, it will hopefully be able to implant and stick, FX. It's important not to lose hope. I've had way worse lows than when I realized we were having a chem. I know my sticky bfp is right around the corner, it's just a matter of time! This cycle I've started taking premama fertility in hopes this helps! I also take a prenatal, folate, cold pressed fermented cod liver oil, vitamin e, calcium/mag/D, pregprep, and vitamin C. I also did pineapple core for a couple days. Good luck ladies, never lose hope! Never give up!

BFP After Chemical Pregnancy!

Hi everyone! My DH and I are 24 years old. We ttc for one month back in December 2014, but I became to stressed. I decided to focus on becoming healthier so I lost 25 pounds. I started to try new things and relax. I started temping again in August while my DH was away and realized my cycle began to regulate. I had always had irregular cycles that lasted 28-55 days and my luteal phase was around 9-10 days long. However, once I began to lose weight, and relax, my cycles changed to 29-32 days. My luteal phase also extended to 10-11 days.

In September I got a positive test, but after finding out that my levels were low, I had a chemical pregnancy. My DH and I decided to try again this month. This cycle I had almost all of the same symptoms on the same days and my chart was similar. I tried to not get excited because I didn't want to disappoint my DH. This morning at 12DPO, the day AF is due to arrive, I tested with a Wondfo. I told myself I probably wasn't going to see anything because it didn't pick up my positive last month, however, a FRER and Clearblue did. I took the test and came back an hour later and saw two lines!

Here are my symptoms:

1DPO- Watery CM
2DPO- Creamy CM, Cold Like Symptoms, Cramps, Fatigue (Slept 12 hours), Tender boobs
3DPO- Creamy CM, Frequent Urination, Irritable
4DPO- Watery CM with what looked like wet toilet paper flecks, Cramps, Fatigue, Irritable, Tender Boobs
5DPO- Same CM as 4DPO, Dizzy, Fatigue, Irritable, Tender boobs
6DPO- Cold Like Symptoms, Fatigue, Irritable, Woke up throughout the night, Tender boobs
7DPO- Emotional (Cried during an episode of Heros), Cold Like Symptoms, Cramps, Fatigue, Increased Appetite, Irritable, Tender Boobs
8DPO- Thick Creamy CM, Bloated, Cold Like Symptoms, Cramps, Fatigue, Tender Boobs
9DPO- EW CM but with white tinge, Insomnia, Woke up to pee in the middle of the night, (Very vivid dreams), Aching legs, Bloated, Cold Like Symptoms, Cramps, Fatigue, Frequent Urination, Gassy, Headache, Increased Appetite, Irritable, Tender Boobs
10DPO- Huge temp drop of almost 1 degree! Implantation?? Creamy CM, Cold Like Symptoms, Dizzy, Fatigue, Frequent Urination, Headache, Increased Appetite, Irritable, Gagged when I went to eat leftovers that I normally LOVE, Tender boobs
11DPO- Temp went back up! Creamy/yellowish CM, Woke up in the middle of the night, pinching in stomach area, aching legs, backache, cold like symptoms, cramps, fatigue, frequent urination, headache, increased appetite, irritable, tender boobs
12DPO- BFP!! Creamy CM

Oh I hope this bean sticks!!

BFP with ZERO symptoms!!! There is hope!

Very, very thankful to be posting here. We have been ttc #3 since May and I recently got my BFP on 10dpo. I felt exactly the same as I have the previous 6months! I literally had no cramps, no implantation bleeding, and no extra cm (in fact I was quite dry and thought for sure I was out...until 12dpo and on)!

I guess I was a tired, but I have an 18mo old and my alarm goes off at 0430 every morning for work....so that was NOT a pregnancy symptom for me. We have been on fertility meds since May, but this month was the first time I did injectibles (Menopur 75IU for 5 days). I ovulated really early, cd 10 with two large follicles (23 and 24mm). I used Ovidrel to trigger.

10dpo beta=45
12dpo beta=123
16dpo beta= 788

Ultrasound scheduled for 12 November. I am praying and praying everything looks beautiful! Thanks be to God for this blessing. I know His timing is WAY better than ours. What really helped and gave me peace was just surrendering this journey to Him. No matter what, we have a beautiful son here on Earth (our first son was stillborn during birth in 2013) and if we never get pregnant again, I am satisfied. BUT I had/have a very strong desire in my heart to have more children, and I am SO thankful for this life growing inside me! EDD= 2 July 2016. 1 day before our anniversary :)

Last month we did an IUI, my DHs sperm motility was low at 30%. I was crushed! The IUI didn't work so I thought we'd be doomed for IVF. Well, we didn't do another IUI this month because we still owe for last months and didn't want bills piling up. We had TI, used Softcups after each time, Preseed, and I also had him taking Fertilaid and Motility Boost since last months failed IUI.

Hang in there ladies, and don't give up hope. I know, easier said than done, but have faith and try your darndest to relax while ttc and the tww. Stress is very powerful.
