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 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
12 DPO BFP w/ FMU w/ FRER
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.

Our BFP after 10 months TTC and 1st round of Clomid

I can't believe we finally got our BFP!!!!!!  We have been TTC for 10 months and this month was our first round of Clomid 50mg.  I never thought I would see the lovely "Pregnant" on the pee stick!!!!  My DH and I charted to the "T" when I ovulated using OPKs and cm.  We BD every other day up untill the day before ovulation then we did it that day and twice on O day (in the a.m. and the p.m.)  We also used pre-seed and I took 2 teaspoons of robitussin 3 times a day starting at CD10 all the way up untill I ovulated.
The day before I ovulated I took an OPK and it was positive we BD
O day I OPK in the am still positive BD
O day I retested in the pm still positive we BD again
O day before bed tested a third time negative so we were pretty sure it was perfect timing.
I had no symptoms at all nothing up untill yesterday when we got our BFP!!!!
I had no excess cm or smelly pee or twinges or belly button pulling or acne or anything.  I had nothing!!!!!
Now I'm a little bloated, my BBs are very very sensitive, slight nausea, cramping, and dairrhea.  This is my second pregnancy we have a 5 year old son who is very excited.  We are very blessed and pray for a happy healthy 9 months!  Baby dust to all don't stress about not having any symptoms not everyone does.

BFP at 10dpo 2nd round of Clomid!

A little background.  DH and I have been TTC #1 for 10 months.  I have endometriosis and possibly PCOS, plus I am a LITTLE overweight.  I had a chemical back in August when I got a bfp at 8dpo but it was gone by 10dpo evening.  This cycle was my second cycle on Clomid 50mg days 3-7.  I went in for an ultrasound on CD 14 and they saw one dominant follie on my right at 16mm.  I ovulated CD 16 and BDed CD 13, 14, and 16.  After each time I propped by butt on a pillow for at least 30 min.  Here were my symptoms
1dpo- Nothing but cramping, had INTENSE O cramps and they continued for a few days after I Oed
2dpo- Cramping
3dpo- Cramping, super emotional, cried at night
4dpo- Cramping, cried at night
5dpo- Cramping, slight breast pain, cried again (oh and the crying continues)
6dpo- Cramping, BBs sore, went to a bar and had 3 drinks...got in a argument with DH, cried yet again, threw up...maybe just from being upset?
7dpo- INTENSE cramping. Usually after O I only cramp from the side I ovulated from.  Today I notice serious cramping on both sides...thinking this was implantation
8dpo- Cramping and sore bbs
9dpo- Cramping, sore nipples, was flying home from visiting family for Thanksgiving this day...tested fmu and BFN
10dpo-  Cramping...wake up and test with a FRER...thought I saw a faint line but half asleep.  Go to take the pups outside and bring the test with me...Look in outside light and there is totally a faint line...don't really believe it so I hold my pee for 3 hours and test with an Answer instead and up pops a bright pink line. BFP!
11dpo-  Test again and line is darker!  Starting to feel nausea already. AF like cramps.  Get beta and it is 28!
12dpo-  AF due but doesn't show, feeling cramping and zinging in my nipples. Puke twice.  (I just KNEW I would be one who got terrible nausea right away) Multiples BFPs! Very vivid dreams
13dpo-  My line on my test today is as dark as control!  Finally take a digi too and it reads: Pregnant!  Get repeat beta and it is 72! Still cramping!

We are praying this baby sticks!!!!  I prayed every night and every morning and truly believe God answered my prayers!  We feel so blessed.  My symptoms were almost the same for every other cycle except for the fact that I began cramping on BOTH sides...I always cramp because of my endo, but they were that much more intense this month.  Good luck ladies!

BFP after one year of trying! :)

TTC baby #2, 5th cycle of Clomiphene on 150mg days 2-6 because of PCOS, used OPK and got LH surge CD 17, estrogen day 12 was 672 pg/ml and progesterone day 22 was 57.3 ng/ml

1-3 DPO No symptoms

4 DPO nausea and really heightened sense of smell (keep smelling cat pee that no one else can smell!), odd twangs in uterus, creamy CM, funny taste in mouth, CD 22 Progesterone level today was high but I had a little bit of spotting in evening (hopefully implantation spotting and not early AF?)
5 DPO odd twangs in uterus, thirsty and need to pee more, vivid dreams, creamy CM, funny taste in mouth
6 DPO lower back pain, thirsty and need to pee more, vivid dreams, creamy CM, high cervix, acne
7 DPO still high cervix, acne, lower back pain and thirsty (dry mouth) and peeing a lot - but no nausea since day 4, BFN first thing using Oracle Fertility Tests (say detect from 10mIU/ml hCG level so from 7 DPO). No sore bbs but hoping maybe with 2nd child you don't get the same sore bbs like I had with first?! Aerolas may be a bit darker - wish had taken pre-photos so can compare as can't remember what they looked like now....
8 DPO BFN first thing in morning. Just thirsty today and a little bit sore around my pelvic area. In evening got the faintest of faint second line on pregnancy test.... evaporation line or actual line?
9 DPO faint second line again.... Sore pelvic region - feel like I'm being stretched down there (tmi!?), headaches, sleepy, very emotional.
10 DPO faint second line but looking darker. Been hungry and tired with sore pelvic region again but not much else.
11 DPO Went in for bloods first thing - Hcg level 81! BFP!! :)

What we did different - used OPK TWICE daily and did LOTS of BD'ing around LH surge and for 48 hours after. Then I have been taking it pretty easy since O day - no overly vigorous exercise etc. Nothing else different.

I know what a hard journey it can be and I'm so grateful to be pregnant again. Some months I had symptoms that were pretty similar to these - but never as many at once. Baby dust to you all!

symptoms

I finally got my bfp!

I have pcos and this was my third four of clomid. Ovulation days 1-9 I had no symptoms.  I didn't even know I ovulated. I had done opks everyday none came out positive and I didn't see on my chart that ovulation was detected! The. Day of our anniversary I saw on my fertility friend chart ovulation was detected on day 20. I was for sure I missed my chance until I saw that. My temps remained high. Then on day 34 of my cycle I had ewcm and my temp was higher. I thought oh no, my chart was wrong I didn't ovulate. Either way I wasn't testing till day 38. I started getting sore nipples around the same time, I just figured it was from ovulation. Then the sides started to hurt, not bad but almost like I was punched. I figured it was in my head and just cause I couldn't bare another negative I held out till day 28. Yesterday morning I took the test bfp!  I couldn't believe it.

So to everyone reading this don't five up hope! Baby dust!!!!!!

BPI after 1st IUI w/ Clomid

Hi Everyone! I've been reading posts on this website since December 2010. I'm 36 and DH is 37. We conceived DS 5 years ago doing self-insemination "turkey baster method" (due to DH's ejaculatory dysfunction) on the first try. After trying for more than 6 months to conceive again, we decided to consult a fertility specialist. He decided to start us on clomid 50 mg day 7-11 (supposed to be day 5 but went there later) and IUI with HCG trigger the day before. It worked the 1st try! I didn't have many symptoms except for increased body temp. (warm feeling) from 8dpiui till now. Also had an intense orgasm (tmi) and uterine cramping with hypersensitivity of genital area afterwards around 11-12 dpiui. Since I did the HCG trigger shot, I started POAS 6dpuiu to see when trigger will disappear. It didn't completely disappear but became really light around 9-10 dpiui then got darker afterwards. Had blood test today 15dpiui and it's a confirmed BFP with beta of 200+. DH also has low semen volume (1-2 cc) in addition to ED so IUI really helped. Also my cycle varies form 30-40 day cycle so the MD said Clomid helped to narrow that range, plus trigger shot made sure that I ovulate in time for IUI.

Two week wait symptoms!

Yaaay I'm so excited to be able to be posting  my BFP on here! After 6 years of fertility treatments in 2009 we had our beautiful twin daughters, then had a heartbreaking m/c earlier this year, and a failed attempt with our last frozen embies in April.  I knew it was a long shot but figured I'd go back to the beginning and try clomid again for 3 mos to see if it could at least get me to ovulate, as I don't on my own.  And now, on my second cycle of clomid I got my BFP!!
3 DPO only thing going on was sore nips, typical for me after I O.  I got SO SICK, brutal cold, cough, thought there's no way I'm getting pregnant this cycle!
4 DPO still sore nips, barely got out of bed and was coughing constantly. Body aches, chills, all of it!
5 DPO sore nips, creamy cm, still sick, but was able to function.
6 DPO BBT temp dropped a bit, cramps, nips sore and creamy cm, ovary cramps and twinges same as last cycle that I got a BFN; feeling pretty sick again today.
7 DPO, saw a temp drop even more, still have ov pain, cramps; nips not sore anymore, starting to feel this is not a good cycle.  STILL sick!
8 DPO Ov pain, cramps, nips perhaps a bit sensitive still?  Or my imagination perhaps. Still feeling rough.
9 DPO Hey hey, feeling better today; I was sick for almost a full WEEK!  Skin breakout, gotta love that!  And NOTHING else.  Not a thing.
10 DPO A wee few niggles and twinges in my ovaries, but last cycle it seemed to be worse at this stage....?
11 DPO Wow can't believe I held out this long! Cramps again, ov pain, backache big time this morning, and tender nips again make me think AF is on her way.
12 DPO have myself convinced that this cycle is a bust, ready to move on so took an HPT.  Is that a phantom line? Took another one.  NO IDEA but I think there's a line there...??  Went out to buy another test, an early response one, and WHAM within a minute there was the most beautiful 2nd pink line staring at me!  BFP!!! Went for my bloodwork and confirmed pregnant! Though she said it was low, unless it was less than 14 dpo, which it was, just waiting for her to call back to tell me what the # was!
So here's a few words to perhaps ease your mind, as things like this eased mine when I was obsessing over stories during my 2ww's:
I was SICK AS A DOG for a week, starting 3 days after ovulation, so YES you can get pregnant if you are sick, and even coughing constantly for days! You DON'T need really sore boobs, or blue veins popping out, or nausea or stinky pee or sensitive smell, or ANYTHING out of the ordinary to tell you you are pregnant, so if you don't have anything going on, you could still be pregnant :)
Baby dust to everyone ttc and praying for sticky babies for those of us who have, and will in the future!

BFP with clomid, trigger shot and spotting

Hi there, this is my story

This is my 4th round of clomid with a trigger shot.  For the past 3 tries I had used the standard pregnal trigger shot but with this cycle i decided to pay a bit more money and go with the Ovidril shot - not sure if this helped?

So here were my symptoms:
1 dpo - 8 dpo Nothing!
7 dpo Had a progesterone level test and it came back at 61!
9 dpo Spotting in the morning, it was pink and only when i wiped. nothing there in the afternoon
10dpo - 11 dpo gassey, needing to go toilet often
12 dpo slight cramps.  I caved and did a pregnancy test in the evening and came back with a faint line!!
13dpo went for a blood test and HCG came back at 66.  Will go back for another blood test tomorrow!
yay!

Finally! BFP first round of clomid

My husband and I finally got our BFP  this morning after using clomid 50mg CD 3-7 round 1!  In December, it will officially be a year of TTC.  I have been pregnant twice this past year (once in January mc at 5 weeks and once the very next month mc at almost 6 weeks).  We also had just received DH's SA results, which indicated he had low morphology and we were getting ready to go next week to a fertility clinic to get set up for IUI or IVF, as we were told we would not be conceive naturally.  I hope this gives hope to other women who have been through mc and/or male infertility factor.  What I did differently this month was 1) take clomid days 3-7 50mg 2) Used pre-seed 3) BD a LOT more! 4) prayed a LOT!  I believe that my cycle was out of whack from the mc's, as I never have received a positive OPK until this cycle.  I tried not to think about my symptoms too much, but here is what I remember:
CD 12 BD
CD13/Ovualtion day: Positive OPK, BD twice, Painful Ovulation cramps all day
1DPO Positive OPK, ovulation pain dissipated
2 DPO urine smelled really strong
3DPO nothing
4DPO Thirsty, exhausted, HUNGRY, peeing a lot more
5DPO light AF cramps
6DPO more cramps, more peeing, hungry, high energy
7DPO food aversion with meat, sore back, fatique, bloated, constipation, lots of peeing, light cramps.
8DPO hot flashes, dreams, peeing, urine is neon colored despite being well hydrated, feel stressed, backache, high energy, irritability, gassy, bloated, constipation (lovely), thirsty, light cramps
9DPO same as above, feel like I'm coming down with sore throat
10DPO same as above with nausea that goes away when i eat, and dizziness
11 DPO same as above with more nausea
12DPO POAS in am and BFP!!!  Came up immediately.  I'm elated and hoping and praying for a sticky baby.

I hope this helps other women in their TTC journey, and I wish you all healthy pregnancies!  Baby dust!
