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 1st Round Clomid

I got my BFP today! Here is my story

I have really long 45-60 day cycles.? It took my 6 months to get pregnant with number #1, because I didn't get my period for 6 months and I concevied as soon as I ovulated. Well this time I tried clomid and the first month DH was out of town when I ovulated. So I made sure he would be home for month #2.? Well I ovulated on day 17, bd'd on 16,17, 2x on 18, 19 and 20. And today is cycle day 27 and I got a super faint positive! I took the test and actually threw it away because I thought it was negative. I then took a nap with my 1 year old and had a dream that the test was positive. So I took it out of the trash and low and behold... it was positive! Looking back now, I did have some major signs that I was preggo.? Cycle days 25 and 26 I started craving salt and my appetite went through the roof! I ate a whole huge dill pickle and then for dinner at a burger, fries and a cupcake!! I never eat that much! Also yesterday I woke up feeling super nauseous and continued to feel that all day and after I ate lunch.. thought I would barf! We are so excited our babes are going to be 20 months apart! Keep trying.. and good look to all ! Clomid is soo great if you are just having irregular cycles! First month worked for me!!

BFP with Clomid - 1st Round!

1-6 dpo-Mood swings Wet CM, Creamy CM -ive tests, urinary tract infection, lots of crampy back and front pains (think is due to UTI, took cranberry juice and antibiotics (told Dr I may be preg, so she gave me preg ok antibiotics) pain goes away. BFN

7dpo-Woke up feeling starving to the point of nausea. Have a banana - it goes away, then keeps coming back through out the day. Breasts have swollen double their usual size, and starting to feel so tired that I go to bed at 9pm. Continues until today! BFN

8dpo-Love tuna, but today nearly makes me sick....craving chocolate orange muffins

9dpo-Hot in bed, vivid dreams, nipples sensitive when I brush past them- really annoyed as I keep getting BFN!

10dpo-12 BFN. Grumpy- maybe cos I'm so tired all the time, also constipated. Stomach keeps cramping when I eat certain foods. Slight increase in sense of smell. ~Getting really upset cos keep getting BFN

13 dpo Decided that I don't care what the preg test says I AM PREGNANT! Have to be with all the sickness (feeling so hungry in the pit of my stomach that I will be sick if I don't eat something ) and huge breasts! BFN taken test in afternoon Tearful

14dpo- wake up feeling better and think my breasts have shrunk back to original size? (period to start tomorrow) feel abit upset that I got it wrong yesterday. Found an OPK in the bottom of the draw and did this am - faint line ... run to husband to get him to check... he can see it too... Yay BFP!

BFP on our 12th month Anniv TTC

Hi I cant believe i can finally tell you about this. I am 28 and have been on the pill for 11 years with no breaks so I thought it might be difficult to concieve. Myself and Hubbie have been trying since august 06 and went through many ups and downs, trying to time it, trying to read the signs.My cycles were ranging from 45 days to 60 days so I was prescribed Clomid after hubbie had normal results on sperm test and I had all clear from HSG. Eventually I got my BFP! exactly to the day 12 months down the line on our wedding anniversary toO, can you believe it!

Here goes;
1-6DPO NOTHING, normally get boob pain but had absolutely nothing, thought that was a positive sign.
6dpo- now sore boobs at the sides mainly nipples look swollen.
7dpo- really gassy, very smelly (sorry tmi)
8dpo- couldnt resist did ovulation test as i know you can detect hcg with them, got a strong result but not a positive.
9dpo -Gums bled when i brushed them in am only, boobs still sore, white heads on chin in am.
10dpo- did another ovulation test very strong result even darker than the other day, did another one 7 hours later even darker almost positive!!!!
11dpo- Couldnt wait any longer bought First response 2 pack test did it with first morning urine i had saved in a glass (have chucked glass out) got BFP in 10 seconds, ran round house screamed , phoned hubbie told him, screamed again.
12dpo - Did another test positive again, did digital so i could see the word, said pregnant in 15 seconds!!!!!!!! WE HAVE FINALLY DONE IT.

Feeling fine now but bloated cant wait until i have actually missed my period on sunday think it will finally feel real then. By the way I used preseed this cycle, have used it twice before but this time we baby danced day before ov, and day after. We usually missed day after in previous cycles.

BFP with Clomid, Preseed & Meditation

Its been a very long road but I finally have my BFP! My husband and I have been TTC for 2 years and 4 months. Your website has been a source of sound advice and inspiration! I have previously tried clomid and accupunture without success. I read the Harvard Med School Book "Six Steps to Increased Fertility" and was very impressed by the rates of pregnancy achieved through meditation classes. Starting in April, I took an 8 wk mindfulness meditation class which helped significantly with my stress level. We decided to take a 3 month hiatus from my job as a physician and try Clomid again before moving on to see REI in October. If I had not been reading TWW I would not have tested as early as I did, which allowed me to start eating the best possible diet as soon as I knew I was pregnant!

This is what I did differently:

--Meditated and Prayed Daily
--Temped (first time ever)
--Clomid 100mg Days 3-7
--Drank Iced Green Tea D1 -D15
--No caffeine except green tea since D4
--Preseed (first cycle trying this!)
--No robitussin, just drank water until urine was clear
--BD daily from day 9 through positive OPK (D15) and for 3 days after
--Reflexology and massage D17 and D25

Early Pregnancy Symptoms:
--- D14 EWCM and Cramping
--D15 positive OPK, severe cramping
--D18 mild gassy abdominal cramping
--D19 gassy cramping, vomited x 1
--D26 (10 DPO) Spotting (light brown mucus), vomited x 1, lower abdomen hurst with laughing/stretching
--D27 Spotting (very light). +HPT (answer)
--D28 Blood BHCG 132
D29 on, increasing bloating, gas, constipation, vomiting in afternoon on some days.


BFP at 9dpo wtih Digital HPT! (Clomid Cycle)

This is dh and my third round of clomid. I was SO shocked to see a DARK BFP at 9dpo and then 'pregnant' with clearblue digital. God is so good! After our first m/c in October this had been a hard, emotional journey but we made it! Keep up the faith no matter how tough it seems.

1-8 DPO: Very sore, swollen bbs. They hurt deep in the muscle and tissue.

6-8 DPO: Small amounts of cm that was like ewcm.

8 DPO: Sensitive to normal smells that usually don't bother me like hand wipes and tuna fish. When I gagged at the hand wipes, my dh looked at me and said, 'you're pregnant aren't you'

9 DPO: Dark BFP on frer (fmu) with another BFP with clearblue digital with second morning urine.

Hope this help. I love reading early pg symptoms. They have kept me for occupied for hours! ;-)

BFP, 4th month, 200mg Clomid cd 3-7

We have been TTC #1 for about 10 months and I just got my BFP tonight!!! I was taking Clomid, 4th 'month' 200mg cd 3-7. I was placed on clomid because of my horrendously long cycles - 120+ days - and had mixed results. I ovulated the first time (100mg), did not ovulate the second (100mg), finally ovulated the 3rd time(150mg) but a month late. My OB-GYN hiked the dose up to 200 mg this past month and I ovulated - but about a week later than expected.

Here are the symptoms that I noticed:

0DPO-now - nips hurt/extra sensitive (normal after ovulating - usually stops right before AF)
5DPO - felt a sharp pain in the middle of my lower abdomen (implantation maybe???)
7DPO-now - the sides and underneaths of my bb's HURT...this is much earlier than normal
10DPO-now - random 'stretchy' feelings in my stomach, different feeling from cramps
15DPO - today - BFP!!!! Took 2 HPTs - got 2 pink lines and "PREGNANT" reading

What really started to make me think I might be preg. is the hurting bb's...since going off BCP, they rarely hurt at all and usually just a day before AF arrives. Thank God! This been a total miracle, as my cycles were completely messed up and my hubby has a lower count. Still SOOOOOOO excited - good luck to all who are trying - it felt like SUCH a LONG road...even though it was only 10 months.

God Bless!

Used instead cups after we Baby Danced
Used pre~seed on O Day (we used this the previouse 2 months also)

My symptoms

9-11 DPO Head ache
11 DPO Temp shot up to 99.2! It hasn't ever been this high

11 DPO 3 + HPT's (FRER, Accu-Clear, and Walgreens DIgital)

Good luck to all of you Ladies TTC! Hope this helps.

BFP Symptoms (on Clomid)

Well, this was my first round on Clomid, and I guess that did the trick. My DH and I have been TTC for 9 months now. I kind of had a feeling it would work because my Grams passed away this past month. With death brings new life. Grams and I were VERY close. As my Aunt told me today, the BFP must be a gift from Grams. :D *THANK YOU GRAMMA!* So here's the different signs I had.


5dpo-Upset stomach on and off all day. Feeling like I was going to pass out. And I had tiny little white heads popping up all over my face.

6dpo-Crabby, extremely tired(took 3 hour nap). Mild cramps on and off all day, and more little white heads popping out of know where.

7dpo-Woke up feeling icky. Lots of creamy CM. A little bit of a stuffy nose, and real bad tightening cramps by mid afternoon. When it was time for bed, I kept tossing and turning not being able to get comfortable.

8dpo-Tender nipples. Woke up with a stuffy nose again. *allergies?*. Cramps continued from the day before and now I had little white heads all over my face, back and chest.

9dpo-Stuffy nose, lower back hurt a bit. Sense of smell has increased. I could smell DH's garlic breathe from many feet away. Gassy, and started getting a strong feeling it didn't work this month. Couldn't get comfortable in bed again.

10dpo-BFN. Very Vivid dreams about my temp falling. BBS and nipples REALLY sore. Still thought it didn't work.

11dpo-My temp fell .4 degrees. Started freaking out a bit. Took an HPT-faint BFP! Didn't believe it so took another one! Faint BFP!!!

12dpo(Today)-BFP on 3 more tests. Still a bit faint, but darker than yesterday.

BFP on Clomid (with PCOS)

I just got my BFP and am very excited and surprised! This is baby #3 for us, and it was a planned pregnancy with Clomid. I have PCOS and have had difficulty conceiving with all three pregnancies. It took us a total of 5 ovulatory cycles to conceive this time, and I am 37 (three cycles naturally, and two with Clomid). I went on Clomid because I had only had 4 cycles in the previous 12 months due to my PCOS and wasn't ovulating regularly enough to try effectively. My age made us more aggressive to turn to Clomid pretty early in our process.

I was on the following medications to conceive:
Glucophage, 1000 mg / day for entire cycle
Clomid, 50 mg, days 3-7 (second month on Clomid)
estriadiol, 2 mg/day, days 8-14
*ovulated on day 14
Prometrium suppositories, 1 daily/200 mg, days 15- 26

I also took prenatal vitamins, 1 extra vitamin B6 (50 mg) daily, and used Pre-Seed around ovulation with BDing. I think adding the estradiol really helped, as I noticed much more EWCM around ovulation, even while on Clomid. Also, using the Glucophage along with the Clomid really worked well for me, since I hadn't responded to the low 50 mg dose of Clomid in the past.

3 DPO - I had really bad ovarian cramping for several hours. I wondered if this might be mild OHSS (ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome) as I was confident ovulation had occurred already, and I had taken Clomid.

4-5 DPO - nothing

6 DPO - felt sad and "blue" all day for no reason, very unlike me

7 DPO - very sad, burst into tears and sobbed heavily after listening to a sad song on the radio. I NEVER do this!

8 DPO - very irritable but couldn't seem to help it; got into a huge fight with DH over nothing. I felt completely out of control of my emotions

9 DPO - while in the shower, I looked down and noticed prominent blue veins on the tops of my arms and lower stomach. I have fair skin, so veins show up early, I took note of this and started getting excited for the first time. This was a huge clue, as many of my other symtoms could have just been the progesterone suppositories I was taking.

10 DPO - Veins still prominent, nipples began to darken and get tender when my bra was off, breasts started feeling heavy

12 DPO - felt very bloated and some of my pants felt tight in the waist

13 DPO - Took a home pregnancy test with FMU, and it was BFN. I was convinced that it was true and that my symptoms were just due to the extra progesterone.I was so disappointed.

14-15 DPO - Same symptoms with breasts, veins, and bloating continue. No period yet, but I had read that supplemental progesterone could delay it starting. Slight cramping and lower backache start, so I am convinced AF is coming and go buy tampons

16 DPO - wiped and saw very light brown after using the restroom. I was confident that my period was starting, especially since I had a BFN on a test a few days earlier. Backache and cramping continues.

17 DPO - My period still hadn't started. After that one brown smudge, there had been no more spotting. I decided to retest, but I still thought the progesterone was causing my symptoms (but I had been off it for 5 days at this point). The test was a light positive -- BFP!! I took three more tests, and they were all postive with a definite second line that was a bit lighter than the test line.

My OBGYN put me back on Prometrium (200 mg daily) when I called her about my BFP since I have a history of low progesterone levels. I will take it daily at least through my first trimester.

Baby dust to all of you! It CAN happen. I am a example of someone whose odds were against her with my age and infertility history, and it still worked. Don't give up!

BFP at age 40 - 2nd month Clomid

I got my BFP in my 7th month of ttc.
This is my second month of Clomid.
I am 40, had a dd on 02/07/2006 when I was 39.
I had had one miscarriage in 1999...twins died at 10 weeks, and miscarried at 12 weeks..probably due to malnutrition since I was excercising to excess and eating 0 fat at the time, but I will never know for sure.

I have been hypothyroid for the past year, maybe postpartum hypo, and have been taking synthroid. Last month during my first cycle of clomid, I found out that my meds were actually causing me to go HYPER thyroid, so they lowered the dosage immediately.

I charted BBT, took opk's almost every day. Checking cervical mucus was hard for me. I couldn't "read" the texture correctly. One thing for sure, Clomid dried me out. I took mucinex (guaifenesin) the day I got a +opk.

I also did some other things differently...due to rumors I had heard about on the net, I stopped drinking milk completely, and cut my morning cup of coffee in half.

I constantly overlayed my charts with those on, and this month "looked" different: I went from spiky up and down pre-o temps to a slow, gradually rising post-o temps that only had a couple small fallbacks.

Here are my early symptoms:

1-8dpo: O pain and lots of AF cramps. A backache not only in my lower back, but also in the middle of my back, radiating out to my hips, where I had felt my epidural during dd's birth.
1-8dpo: I was up 2-3x per night to pee, and I had a sore throat.

4 dpo: Took a progesterone blood test...P4 level was 14. I ovulated on day 18 of my cycle.

5dpo: fatigue on this day...otherwise energy has been fine.
5dpo onward: DROOLING in my sleep, that progressed to watery mouth during the day. Would wake up every morning with a soaked pillow. This was my first hint that I was probably pregnant, because it was one of my big symptoms with dd.

8dpo onward: Big appetite..woke up hungry, went to bed hungry...couldn't wait for normally scheduled meals...had to eat things in between or I felt like I'd starve. I crave BEEF in any form, raw carrots, and grape juice (the purple kind only).

9dpo onward: Same watery mouth during the day, but short jolts of nausea and dizziness that made me feel like my eyes were crossing or bulging. I always had this 2pm nausea with dd too. I started sneezing, and had a runny nose, and more nasal stuffiness too. I thought maybe this was all just a sinus infection.

10dpo: Thought I would use up my leftover opks to check pregnancy. negatives, obviously.

11dpo: Used my last dollar tree hpt this morning, and figured I would waste it, but got a faint BFP. Very happy, but I really knew deep down that I was pregnant at about 5dpo.

Another clue that I was pregnant? NO MOOD ALL this month. My anger really got out of control the last couple months, and this month I was just very content.

NO SORE BBs. I had extremely sore bbs with dd, but not this time.

I hope this helps you with your 2ww. Don't feel bad about obsessing about your symptoms. I can guarantee you that there are always surprises in the 2ww.
