Used OPK to Help Detect Pregnancy and No Symptoms

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since January; however, this March was the first time
I actually had a positive OPK. I had my LMP in March 8th and had a + ovulation on 28th and 29th.
We had sex on the 28th, 29th, and 30th. I have been obsessing about this cycle since in began. I
compared my symptoms to everyone on here, but nothing really matched up. The only symptom
was the occasional pressure on my uterus. We got our first BFP tonight. Here is the clincher...I took
3 HPT leading up to tonight and all were negative. I read on another website that OPK can detect
pregnancy. I figured with! To my surprise I saw a smiley face staring back at me. I was shocked. I
then tested with 2 HPT and both were also positive. I hope I gave a few of you girls some hope.
Keep believing and praying.


Hi all!

I thought it would be nice to share with anyone who obsesses over seeing that little line pop up on
their pregnancy test like I do! We have been TTC for about 4 months, and honestly I was starting to
calm down with my obsessive behaviors this month. I got a BFP yesterday and then 5 more leading
up to this afternoon. I officially missed my period on Sunday 04/08/2012. I did have some
symptoms, but at the time was trying to ignore them- because I ALWAYS think I am having
symptoms! I guess about 5 DPO my bbs were REALLY sensitive and nipples were tingly. I also
noticed that about that time up until now... when I coughed or sneezed my lower abdomen would
hurt. It was like a sharp pulling feeling. Now I have a little headache and maybe the slightest bit of
nausea and occasionally have a hot/ sweaty flash. 

My EDD is: 12/19/2012! :)

Can't Believe I Can Finally Post My Story!

I have been reading this site like a crazy person the last 6 months, and it's now finally my turn to
post my story! I am still in shock! I have 7 pregnant friends so it's exciting to be the 8th pregnant

A little history, DH and I have a 14 month old son, conceiving him, was easy, no issues, happened
the first month we TTC, I did not realize how LUCKY I was until our recent struggles!! TTC #2 has
been gut wrenchingly hard to say the least. To month after month see the "not pregnant" took its
toll until TODAY! 10-11 DPO I got my BFP! 

We did a lot of things differently this month. I started temping, took mucinex, DH and I both took
Fertility Blend, we used Conceive Plus Lube and I used OPK's. Prior months we just used the OPK's.
I am not sure if one specific thing was the trick or a combo of them all together but we are ecstatic!
Here are my symptoms which were completely different from my first pregnancy! 

ODay, had extreme bloating, which I haven't had in months so it makes me wonder if all those
months I didn't ovulate? 

1-2 DPO - Nothing really, temp went up to about 98.2 then to 98.4
3 DPO - Bloating again and super moody already, way too early for it to be AF but I chalked it up to
that anyway. Temp still at 98.4
4-5 DPO nothing really, temp 98.4 both days, beginning to think it didn't work this month. temps
were very flat
6DPO is when the back pain started. Again I convinced myself it was AF on the way, I usually get
back pain a week or so before. Also had some mild cramps. Temps still flat at 98.4
7-8DPO still have the back pain and cramping, gassy and still slighting moody. Had a hotflash
type episode and felt extremely nauseous and went to bed at 8PM on 8DPO
9 DPO - super bloated again, gassy, super super super MOODY. Had a minor bout of diartoos that
night and temp still flat at 98.4
10DPO, TODAY, woke up, took my temp and BAM 98.8, at that moment, I got a glimpse of HOPE.
Jumped out of bed and POAS, the only one I had in the house! Left the room and came back to the
words PREGNANT! I couldn't believe it! Still am in shock! I still feel like AF is on her way. Bit crampy
and bloated and slight back pain still. AF was due on Thursday!! X-Mas baby, not exactly great
timing but I don't care!!! :-) 

I hope this helps and Baby dust to everyone!!!!!!

BFP 3rd Month TTC No Symptoms

Wow! I'm still in shock! :-)

DH and I are both 23, we'll both be 24 within the next few months. We were married in May of last
year, and having dated for 4 years prior, we knew we wanted to start a family soon. We decided to
do away with BC in Jan this year. First month we missed the fertile window due to family emergency.
February just was not our month, as we tested and saw a BFN.

March we BD on CD 9,13, 15 & 16. My cycles are regular at 30 days, and I used OPKs this month and
last. Positive OPK on CD 15. On CD 15 & 16 we used Pre-seed. I called my Dr. But they won't see me
until May 10th. Like many, I to stalked this site during the TWW to check for any sign or symptom.

The only symptoms I had during the past 2 weeks are sore nipples on 10 dpo, and increased thirst.
That is it. No cramping, or anything else. We are so excited for our first child. We pray for a safe and
healthy pregnancy! I would give Pre-seed a try and just have faith that the time is right!

Good luck to everyone out there!!


I know there are so many of us out there that have been waiting for the time to be able to say those 
words- some are still trying and I know how it feels to be in that position too. We've been trying 
since Feb 2011, I was on the pill for 15 yrs which I think completely mucked up my hormones! It’s 
been a long road (not as long as some I know) but it’s been a horrible time of waiting, despair, 
heartache. I don’t think men always understand the emotions we go through each month of trying... 
it’s a roller coaster. But I'm so happy to say that I have finally got a positive result POAS. In fact I've 
done 6 POAS for the last 5 days!! I've booked into to see the doctor on Friday so fingers crossed all 
will be ok. I can honestly say I didn’t notice anything until two days before I was due on I had a 
brownish discharge for two days. My boobs are really sore now but all other symptoms were just 
like I get every other month when AF is due. Only things we didn’t differently this month was, we 
cut down the amount we were doing the deed to every other day and they on O day & day after, plus 
we changed positions to missionary and I kept legs up for much longer than usual.

Only thing is now I'm starting to panic on other things like, what if I have a chemical pregnancy or 
miscarriage. I know I shouldn’t think like that but I can’t help but been concerned with this little bean.

I wish you all loads of luck (as that really is all it is!)

7th Month of Completion

Good afternoon all - this site really kept me occupied during my SEVEN blocks of two week waits! :)

DH and I have been TTC for 7 months and on the 7th month we have a blessing!

I want to note that I didn't have any major symptoms other than my usual PMS symptoms which
include sore breast and fatigue. The one thing different I did this month was RELAX. I didn't stress
over symptoms because everyone is so very different. Relax...have fun...and it'll happen.

Got a BFP at 12DPO!

Thought for sure AF was on her way... and then Surprise! BFP!

My DH and I had been TTC for nine-ten months. We have one beautiful little boy, who has been
praying for a baby sister. In fact, he said all he wanted for Christmas was a baby sister. Well at the
last possible chance to have this wish come true, we got our BFP! Our due date is December 22,
which means baby will be just in time for Christmas! I think this is the most amazing
part. God always answers children’s prayers.

Funny thing is, I thought for sure I was out this cycle. I started getting cramps, including on inside
of legs, and that "wet" feeling down there like AF was coming. However, my temp was still high.
So 12-14 DPO I took a test and BFP! Very faint line, but there. Took another after work and another
faint BFP. But a line is a line right! So three hours later tried a digital…. “PREGNANT.” It’s official
and legit!

Not many symptoms different from regular AF symptoms. I did take a nap about every day. And my
temps were taking a somewhat different flow and then staying up when they should have started
going down. One day I had a sticky string of CM hanging down there. Besides that, nothing out of
the ordinary to note. I had sore bbs for two days and cramps after about 10 DPO on, but those
both are normal AF signs. Conclusion, if you feel out, don't doubt! My BFP took me by
complete surprise!

BFP - No Symptoms During TWW!

After becoming slightly obsessive with this site in previous months, I wanted to share my BFP story!
Can't actually believe I got two this morning after what feels like endless BFNs!

After being on BC for 11 years I came off last summer & have been "officially" TTC for 4 months
(me-27, DH-33) & in Jan started taking my temp & becoming a little too obsessed with trying...well
this month I decided to stop temping & just to relax & not over-think everything. We did use a
digital OPK this month but that was it. I totally thought there is no way we are going to conceive as
we only BD'd once (day before O) due to work & so I felt pretty relaxed the whole month - it really
made all the difference!

So here are the stats & my advice, although I know how hard this is, is to try & relax as it will

Cycle - 31-35 days
O - CD 19
BD - CD 18

The only symptoms I had this month were 14DPO onwards I've felt tired & nauseous & had some
cramping - basically I thought AF was on her way! Plucked up the courage to test 16DPO & two
BFPs on Clearblue digital with "2-3" weeks pregnant on the conception indicator. So excited but
also wary as know we have a long way to go...

Baby dust & sticky vibes to all x

After 1 Year of TTC, BFP This Morning!!!!!!!!

Recently, since it's been 1 year we've been TTC number 1, I was a really discouraged... (crying -
secretly- every time I heard one of my friend got pg)...

Here are my symptoms:

Oday: Strong pinching on left side (every time, I fell my O) for 5 hours, erotic dream (I have them
3 days prior to O and every night until O...every month:)
1-3 dpo: nothing
4 dpo: Gum pain and swelling (I did not want to associate it with pgcy...) oin one precise area of
my gums
5dpo: strange long dream... Really realistic...
6dpo: brown spotting after BM (I usually spot from day 6ish to AF, so I was sure AF was coming),
1 episode of dizziness
7dpo: brown spotting after BM, really bloated!
8dpo: brown spotting after BM, yellow CM, really bloated (a lot of gas...TMI I know)
9dpo:brown spotting after BM, yellow CM, one nausea episode, still really bloated, even in the
morning I was bloated, BFN (I know... too early)
10dpo: yellow CM, really bloated (telling my DH: I don't know what's going on, I'm having so
many gases!)
11dpo: My first BFP EVER!!!!! On early first response test. I couldn't believe it...I still can't..

What I did different this month was: cutting caffeine (only one scoop in the percolator, the rest
was 4 scoops of decaf), I had 2 glasses of wine during the wk end, twice (instead of none...maybe
I was more relax after O because of that), I took Aspirin starting at 3dpo, prenatal vitamins (not
only folic acid), and we did it: 3 days pre O, 2 days pre O and the day of O (and I was in Europe for
work 2 wks before that, so 3day pre O was your first time in 2 wks and we were sooo excited to see
each other: it was not about conceiving at all)

I hope the baby sticks....

Good luck girls!!! Even if you are a spotter (I always was sure something was wrong with me since I
spot so much before AF) and if it's been over 1 yr of TTC (for us: 13 months), IT’S POSSIBLE!!

Don't give up... :)


BFP 2 Months TTC

This was my husband and mine second month trying for baby #3. We didn't chart or use opk's. I was maybe thinking of charting next month if this month didn't happen.

My last period was march 3rd and I think I ovulated on cycle day 13. We bd on cycle days 11-14. I had ewcm on cycle day 12 and 13. Didn't have much of it. Last month I had way more and didn't get pregnant.

Day before ovulation- light brown spotting. Thought this was strange I never spot with ovulation.
Ovulation day- ewcm had very sharp twinges in right ovaries. I always feel ovulation
4dpo period like cramping all day.
5dpo some sharp back pains, dull cramping at night and a couple sharp twinges in bbs.
6dpo very emotional and some cramping.
7dpo bad headache and some minor cramping
8dpo sharp twinge on lower right side a little nauseous at night.
9dpo strong cramps on the right side
10dpo tearing feeling behind belly button feeling sick at night. Test and bfn
11dpo nothing and bfn
12dpo woke up feeling sick. Runny nose, head hurts, throat is killing me. Very emotional that night. Bfn
13dpo crazy emotional bfn again.
14-17dpo went on vacation and wore a pad everyday because I was tired and kept cramping. It felt exactly like period cramps. I thought for sure period was coming.
18 dpo took a dollar store test and saw a second line! It wasn't very strong so I didn't really believe it fully. Went to target and took a clear blue digital and it said pregnant! Today I am 4 weeks 3 days pregnant!

I usually get sore bbs and nauseous before my period so this month I didn't have sore bbs and I thought that was strange. My bbs still don't hurt at all. I have some minor cramping but I had cramping with my first two. Really the only symptoms I'm feeling now is extremely tired and minor cramping. My due date is December 8th!
