Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Clomid

Good old Clomid. Many is the BFP story that references Clomid at least somewhere along the way. And here you'll find a whole mess of them in one place. If you're taking Clomid and looking for some inspiration, look no further. This page is for you.

And when you get your BFP while taking Clomid, we want to hear from you! Send me your symptoms through this contact form.

BFP @ 7dpo w/ Clomid

Hello :) I have been using this site for support since June 2011. I really appreciate everyone's help while TTC. I know it is very early but I had to share the news. Last night; I tested on 7dpo and got a super faint line on FRER. I took another 4 hours later, still faint but darker than before. I am very excited! This was our 1st month taking Clomid 100 mg. We prayed and elevated the hips every time we BD. Hubby had SA, everything good except poor morphology.

CD 5-9 Clomid
CD 13/14 and 16 Positive OPK CBdigital is the way to go!
CD 13/14/15 BD
CD17 temps dove really low
CD 22 Tested Progesterone (25.17)
CD 23 Took FRER, come back BPF!!!! :) Hubby wants to see it get darker. Cramping on and off, gassy, slight nausea in AM.

Praying for a Healthy Bean!! Thanks again.

My advice is to get a digital OPK, I think out of all the many things I have tried in the past 12 cycles, the OPK was what helped the most this cycle. And I also tried to visualize the sperm meeting the that somewhere. It worked!!

BFP After 16 Months of TTC!

After 16 months, several trips to our reproductive specialist, and my second round of Clomid, we finally got our BFP. We were beginning to resign to the fact that maybe a baby just wasn't in the cards for us and lo and behold... Sometimes patience is the hardest thing... All in all, this two week wait I had less "symptoms" than any other month!

1dpo - shooting pains in vagina, almost felt like my cervix was itchy
2dpo - low back aches while sleeping, no food appeals, sore/itchy nipples (but this also happened last month with round 1 of Clomid)
3dpo - low back aches while sleeping, dizzy spell early in the afternoon
4dpo - nothing out of the normal except for an afternoon headache
5dpo - had to sit out a few poses during yoga, more acne than usual
6dpo - intense shooting pains in my vagina in the AM, very vivid baby dreams (although I get these a lot)
7dpo - slight cramps but nothing crazy
8dpo - had to take a nap in the afternoon (I never nap)
9dpo - woke up really thirsty and with ZERO appetite for anything all day, had a slight headache
10dpo - VERY faint BFP at 7am, didn't want to obsess so I figured I'd let it go and take another one in 2 days, left eye started twitching, still no food appeals to me even though I'm pretty hungry
11dpo - more left eye twitching and light cramps
12dpo - I woke up really early bc I was dreaming about positive pregnancy tests (crazy), faint BFP (but the line was slightly darker than 2 days ago), gave in and showed my husband, we agreed not to get our hopes up even though all signs point to yes
13dpo - no doubt about this BFP, wound up taking 4 different brands of tests and all came back positive

My doc had me come in that next day for blood work which confirmed it! I'm now almost 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to everyone!

2 Months of IUI and Chlomid...FINALLY BFP!!

My DH and I have been trying for over a year and went through our second round with IUI this month, I went to take a blood/pregnancy test yesterday and the doc called back around 1:30pm, I just let it go to voicemail, and somehow managed to get through the day so DH and I could listen to it when I got home. All I remember is her saying CONGRATULATIONS. I am over the moon excited, and it still doesn't feel real. It was such a long road, but worth every tear along the way!!

I really didn't have any symptoms besides cramping/pressure which made me think I was going to get my period any day. I did have a little more CM than usual for the past 2 weeks, and I was extremely thirsty.

This year has been the most emotional for me, and never did I think that I would actually get pregnant. Hearing everyone around me getting pregnant was hard to swallow, but don't give up and have faith, it will happen!! Baby dust to everyone!!

BFP After Trigger & Clomid

I never thought I would be able to post on here. But after 8.5months of the emotional rollercoaster of TTC I finally got my BFP on 11DPO.

This month we used Clomid 100mg (2d round) days 2-6, the Pregnyl trigger and progesterone cream. I also took extra B6 in the 2ww as I have a short LP and I used Conceive Plus.

CD13 - BD
CD14 - BD - Conceive plus used
CD 15 - I ovulated - No BD
CD 16 - BD
1-3 DPO - No symptoms
4 DPO - I vomited, which I never do.
5-9 DPO - Random shooting booby pain, increased creamy CM.
10 DPO - AF normally here, but no spotting. Cramps.
11 DPO - Temp shot up, took a test - faint BFP, but worried it was trigger.
12 DPO - Worried all day I am not pregnant and the trigger is playing tricks.
13 DPO - Darker BFP... and super temp spike to 37.08C...I am over the moon happy!

I didn't really have any symptoms, still not sore boobs. The only thing I really have is random sharp shooting uterine cramps. I am praying the baby sticks and I have a healthy and happy 9 months, with a beautiful baby at the end of it.

BFP, After 10 Years of Trying!!!!!!

This was my first round back on Clomid. Changed from days 5-9 to 3-7. Ovulated on day 10, which shocked me. This was the first month I swore I WAS NOT pregnant. First month in my life ever. I even refused a pregnancy test at docs because they were all negative at home. I went by ovulation for testing, not the day I started my period, so I was testing way too early and getting negatives, which depressed me.

My main symptom was a rash on my stomach, which I actually read in someone's post on here was a sign. It came on right after ovulation and was kind of pimply and non itchy. Other then that it just felt like my period was coming and coming and nothing boobs a little larger, cramping etc. But for me nothing felt more severe or different. If anything it felt like my symptoms were less then normal period coming.

Finally broke down again 4 days after period was due and OMG POSITIVE!!! I showed DH and he just said it says two lines. I took the idiot proof digital and voila - pregnant. Went to doc right away and they confirmed with urine and blood. Pregnant!!!!!

Day after confirmed my boobs hurt a little more and I was really dizzy. I have started urinating more frequently, spent a week in the bathroom from vomiting, but now I am about 6 weeks and my symptoms are off and on. One day I feel great, one day I cant stay awake and feel sick.

It is not what I expected at all. I thought everything would be so obvious and it was not. Like I said this was the first month in all my life I did not think I was.

Very excited, but nervous. I want this little one to stick so bad, I have even promised Disneyland already lol. I was so close to giving up. It has been a long, hard ten years, but now it is so worth it!!!! Keep the faith. It can happen, even if it does not seem like it ever will.

BFP & 1st Round of Clomid!!!

Hi Ladies!

I am currently 9wks 4days pregnant with my first baby!!! Had my first ultrasound scan today and all good thank God. We started trying in May 2011 straight after we got married. I have pcos so my periods were always quiet irregular - had been on the pill for over 10 years and my cycles went from 50 days to 60 days, 42 days, 41 days after coming off the pill. I wanted to check if I was ovulating so got progesterone tested through blood tests - one cycle it was 3.7 day 21 and another time 1.6 - was disheartened to hear this so doctor suggested clomid, which thankfully did the trick first time around!!

My symptoms during the two week wait were as follows:
- Boobs feeling fuller on some days but not sore
-Strong sense of smell from a couple of things - at Christmas party could really smell the coffee and cheese board ordered by one of the girls! Also my parents had a Christmas wreath on the table & I could really smell it!
-A few headaches (I had no implantation bleeding and no implantation dip).
- 14 DPO - BFP 1-2 wks with Clearblue digital!!! Couldn't believe it! Really didn't think I was pregnant - thought the fuller boobs might have been something to do with the Clomid (wasn't sure as it was only my first round of Clomid 50mg). I did the pregnancy test as I had my friend's wedding the next day (I was one of the bridesmaids) and just wanted to check on the off chance that I might be pregnant and shouldn't drink. Had a few drinks the next day to avoid questions but most of the time drank 7up (like sprite) & pretended I had vodka in it! I'm sure a few of my friends suspected but they said nothing!!

So thrilled to be this far along & feeling great! My current symptoms are that my boobs are sore and feel heavier - especially in bed if I wear no bra so tending to wear a sports bra to bed now to ease that! Also the smell of certain foods put me off especially garlic bread which I used to love! I'm also very gassy and a bit more tired than usual on certain days. No morning sickness (yet) thank god so all in all I don't feel pregnant most of the time!

I want to wish you all the best of luck - hope you get your BFPs very soon. Babydust to all xxx

BPF After 14 Months, Lap & Clomid

Hi all, got my first ever BFP after 14 months of trying. Diagnosed as unexplained, lap in Oct and gave Clomid a go (although already ovulating fine) this month as last step before IUI.

It could have been anything that got us over the line this month but above all I think the single most significant change was I have been strictly gluten free for five weeks and feeling (and looking) better than ever.

Not many symptoms
DPO 0-10 ++CM super thick and white (TMI)
DPO9-12 Sharp pains in my hips??
DPO13 brown creamy blood when wipe
DPO13-14 Very sore boobs but that is normal for me before AF

Tested and just super faint BPFs from DPO 12, super clear and fast ones today DPO15. All fingers and toes crossed for a healthy pregnancy and baby!! I cant believe how every month would get me down and feel so silly compared to others how try much longer. To all trying it will happen!!!

BFP w/ 1st Round on Clomid and Have PCOS

I'm so glad to be able to share my story with you ladies. I took Clomid on cd 5-9 and these were my symptoms...

CD 13 Felt sharp pain on my right side
CD 14 BD'd but I had pain after wards
CD 15 (I think that this was ovulation day) Woke up around 4 AM because I had cramps, I also had waves of nausea around 9 AM. I ended up sleeping until 3 PM that day but woke up with cramps again. Had lots of creamy white CM (So much that it was in my underwear). BD'd in the night and ended up having cramps right after we were done.
1 DPO woke up with mild cramping but had creamy CM but towards the end of the day I felt more dry. BD'd at night.
2 DPO Nauseous in the morning while brushing my teeth and had hot flashes all day along with a mild headache and sore nipples. I started feeling gassy towards the end of the day. In the night time I was laying down and when I got up I got big sharp pain/cramp on my left side.
3 DPO Woke up nauseous again and extremely tired. Crankiness kicks in later on while xmas shopping, nipples sore all day. Had sharp pains "down there" in the afternoon that continued into the night. Also felt dry all day.
4 DPO Had the feeling of fullness that you get when AF is coming, CM is dry. Cramps continue and nipples get painfully sore. Lower back pain started.
5 DPO Nipples hurt even more today and cramps still continue. Around 5 PM I was walking in my house and I felt something come down and so I ran to the bathroom and saw that a blob of CM was in my underwear (Sorry I know it's TMI). After wards I still feel dry down there. Went to bed with a headache.
6 DPO Nipples aren't as sore, felt nauseous while brushing my teeth. Feel bloated, work pants feel snug. Have mild cramps all day..
7 DPO Nipples still sore. Slept all day (woke up at 3 PM) but was still tired. 10:30PM my headache turns into a migraine. Extra creamy CM.
8 DPO Nauseous, migraine gone, nipples aren't as sore, constipated, when I would sneeze I would get cramps. Back pain shows up again, could barely sleep because of it.
9 DPO Bleeding gums while brushing my teeth. Felt so tired I got home at 1:30PM and fell asleep on my bed with my clothes on until 8 PM and still felt sleepy, back pain continues.
10 DPO Back pain and sore nipples (Feel like I'm out this cycle)
11 DPO Same
13 DPO Another BFP
14 DPO go to the doctor and beta is 84
16 DPO Beta rises to 223

I'm praying that this bean sticks. After two miscarriages I hope that this third pregnancy will work out for us.

BFP! 1st round of Clomid

Wow, yesterday I got my first BFP, I'm amazed.  I've spent lots of time over the last 20 months reading this site so thought I'd submit my symptoms in case they help anyone!

CD 2-6 Clomid
CD 17 and 18 OPK positive and scan showed 2 mature follicles, EWCM
1-8 dpo Nothing
9 dpo Constant lower back ache, small amount white CM
10 dpo Lower back ache continues
11 dpo Mild ovarian pain on both sides, groin and upper thigh pain, breats starting to feel sore.  These were EXACTLY the same symptoms I get before af arrives, was convinced she was on her way
12 dpo CM completely dries up, sharp twinges in ovaries, breasts hurt
13 dpo Skin breaks out in spots, af like cramps
14 dpo  No af, was 4 days late last month so presume she's late
15 dpo Mood plummets, feel irritable and teary, just like before af
16 - 19 dpo Occasional ovarian twinges, breasts no worse, dry CM
20 dpo Breasts getting really sore now, too scared to test, still convinced af is coming although PMS symptoms have reduced
21 dpo Finally do a test, got BFP straight away!
22 dpo Very sore bbs!!  Low grade nausea creeping in.

We've been ttc for 20 months, we were eventually prescribed clomid and it worked first time round, much to our amazement.  We're so grateful to God and it's the best Christmas present we could have hoped for.
