BFP after 5 months & eating brazil nuts!!!

This was our 5th mth ttc but 4th official cycle (I have long cycles ranging from 31-36 days). We already have a daughter born Jan 2017. We conceived her 1st cycle so we were hoping for another easy conception so was gutting when I was getting BFNS each cycle (though I know 5 months is not long at all in the grand scheme of things). I did start worrying that it was never going to happen as my cycles were a bit all over the place, I never got a ‘blazing’ positive OPK or EWCM (including this cycle) but here we are!! I used to spend ages daydreaming reading these BFP stories so feel it’s only right to share mine. So I always OV around CD19-20 so I had been doing 2-3 OPKs from CD17 but nothing! I got my darkest line (but still would say slightly fainter than the control line) on CD25! So I almost wondered if I had even OV’d this cycle, I decided to count CD25 as my OV date though but didn’t hold out much hope. We DTD CD13 / 18 / 21 / 23 / 25 / 26. I’d say from about 6dpo I had crazy swollen and sore boobs like they were bruised on the sides, this was very odd for me so I started to feel hopeful. I felt like my symptoms increased every day including weeing for England, being off my food, bouts of nausea, vivid dreams, bloating, hot sweats & lots of milky cm. Just to add I had NO symptoms when I got pregnant with DD but did have an implantation bleed which I haven’t this time so just goes to show every pregnancy is different. So on 11dpo having not been able to sleep much the night before due to anxiety about taking the test I got up at 5am and peed on a FRER, I stared at the line willing the 2nd line to appear and within 30 secs it was there . I suppose I wasn’t too shocked as I had been suspecting it but all I can say I felt was pure happiness and major relief that these symptoms weren’t in my head!! I did have a clearblue digital which read ‘not pregnant’ from the same urine but I wasn’t disheartened as I just knew it was too early and they are not as sensitive as FRERs. My husband was working away so I lay awake for 2 hours staring at the test till our normal morning video call where I got our daughter to tell him she was going to be a big sister, he cried with happiness. Just the best phone call ever. At 13dpo I got a stronger frer and 1-2 wks on a digital, 4 days later I got 2-3 wks and will do my last test this wkd which I hope will read 3+ wks. The things I did differently this month were I ate 5-6 Brazil nuts every day from suspected ov which supposedly helps implantation. We have also been taking his n hers pre conception pregnacare & used conceive plus for the last 2 months having given up on preseed. Bring on March 2020 and hoping everyone reading this with hope the same way I did gets there BFPs soon!!

CD 51 BFP

This is my third (and last lol) baby. My husband and I weren't even trying this time around. My first two (and only before this one) pregnancies have always needed a fertility medication. So this was the BIGGEST and best shock ever! i received BFN all the way up until CD 50...i got a faint faint bfp. One where you had to question if it was there or am i seeing things?! The next day on cd 51, i got a very obvious bfp. i called the doctor and they sent me for blood work. My labs were HCG - 14 Progesterone - 12.1 I have another blood work appointment today to see if they numbers are trending the way they need to be. However i just want to say this cycle i had literally no symptoms. I missed my period (usually 30 day cycle) at Cd 37 i started to take hpt and they all came back negative. I stopped testing after a week, i figured i was out and af would be showing up soon. Then around cd 46 i started to test again, all negative....until cd 51. So its totally possible to test negative for so long and then get your late bfp!! Praying for a very sticky bean!! sending baby dust to you all!

BFP after IUD removal and late ovulation

Hello mamas and mamas to be, I cant begin to tell you how many times I've stalked this sight trying to see if I had any early signs of pregnancy. Your stories gave me hope. Here's my story, I have had an IUD in place after my DD was born in December 2015. I removed it late October 2018 so that DH and I could try for 1 more baby. We are both 37 and have two kids. A 15 yr old and 3 yr old. About 3 days after my IUD was removed I had my first cycle, 6 days long. 28 days later was my next cycle 6 days long. The cycle after that was 29 days long with a 5 day cycle. Each month I had various symptoms that led me to believe I was pregnant and each month got a BFN. My cycles are pretty regular so when January's cycle was 2 days late I took a pregnancy test and again a BFN. I was so confused because I didn't feel ANY symptoms. After that negative I order a large kit of wondfo ovulation and pregnancy tests. It arrived two days later and by then my period was 5 days late. I took a ovulation test with my morning urine since I was unsure of when I would ovulate next due to lack of period. It came up positive that I was ovulating which seemed weird to me considering I was supposed to be on my period. So with the same urine I decided to also do a pregnancy test. After a few minutes I thought I could see a positive line. It was so faint I thought i was imagining it. How could i possibly have such a faint line 5 days after a missed period. I was so confused. The next day i tested again and could see a positive line again. Slightly darker. I couldn't believe it. I had ZERO symptoms. Here we are 5 days since my first positive and my lines are slowly progressing to where I dont have to squint quite so hard to see them. I have yet to tell my DH, I think I may wait 2 more weeks and tell him on Valentine's Day. Fingers crossed this little bean sticks. I'm so excited. Baby dust to you all

2008 BFP - NO/Little SYMPTOMS - ENDO - LATE OVULATION!

Hi Ladies. I used to stalk this site way back in the day, before I got married and had my DS. I could have sworn that I had posted it, but maybe the website was updated and it got lost in the transition. I feel like to help the ladies out... here is what I went through... and yes I still remember this from 10 years ago. Starting on 6/13/2008: CD 42 - 43) cycles were really long and abnormal – I found out my right ovary was behind my uterus which caused some pain aka endo – just a few days prior. No EWCM or any noticeable CM two days before O’day. We did BD just about every day though. CD 44 O’day) We didn’t BD we were actually on a plane on our way home to move our stuff to where my ex was stationed. 1-4DPO) Mostly visited family, BD maybe twice. No symptoms 5-7DPO) Started the long drive back home with our stuff in-tow. On the road. No BD. No symptoms. 8-9DPO) Got home, unloaded moving truck, no symtoms. 10DPO) BD. Notice nips are lighter in color with a darker hued ring on the edge and slight redness on the actual nips itself. Shrugged it off as too much rough play. AF like cramps. Freaking out with how many black-widows have taken home on our porch. 11-12DPO) Nips still same in color and AF cramps get stronger. Tell ex that AF is coming. 13DPO) Nips still the same, not sore. Still believing that AF is coming but now confused why cramps have stopped. Ex says I'm pregnant. Not sure so I buy a FRER decided to take it the next day. 14DPO) Took FRER in the afternoon when we were doing laundry. POAS, set it on the counter and completely forgot about it. Went out to check on clothes and came back to find a noticeable second pink line - BFP!! I was in disbelief and cried out "BABE!!" My husband immediately came to my side thinking that I needed to be saved from a black widow or something. I showed the stick to him and he hugged me and started to cry a little. I was still silent and in shock. REMAINDER OF PREGNANCY) No symptoms. I craved toasted subway sandwiches and milk which I would down about 3-4 gallons a week... no queasiness... no sore boobs (although the my nip color went back to normal after 5-6 weeks). I went on to give birth to a handsome and sweet boy a little early but he's healthy and fills my heart with joy. Things I did: NO STRESS or Obsession during the TWW. My first cycle using Liquid VITEX - hits the body faster than pills but is a pain to find now a days. Anything is possible ladies. Baby Dust!

BFP 8dpo!

I’m so excited to finally get to post my BFP story. I’ve watched this site for a while and I love reading everyone’s stories. First let me say that this was our second cycle trying to conceive and here is a list of things I did differently. 1.Took prenatal vitamins! 2.Used Ovulation test. 3.Less caffeine 4. Tried not to stress! 5.Legs up after sex. I personally think the ovulation test and prenatals are what helped us this cycle. I believe I had a chemical last month I had a vvfl and slowly but surely it got lighter and then AF came. So I’m very excited about this! Now to the good part my list of symptoms! CD 17: positive opk! Did the baby dance! CD 18: peak opk! (Crampy, threw up, feeling weak) CD19: O day! Did the baby dance (feeling better, slight cramps could be from gas) CD20:1dpo ( creamy lotion cm, tired (could be unrelated) felt a few “pinches” CD21: 2dpo (Feeling normal) lots of cm CD22:3dpo (Feeling normal) left ovary pain. CD23:4dpo (feeling normal) CD24:5dpo(feeling normal) CD25:6dpo(feeling normal, gassy, went to bed early) CD26:7dpo(feeling normal, slept so much today) CD27:8dpo( Feeling normal, slight cramping in back, BFP?!, lots of CM) CD28 ( Feeling normal, more pinching and pulling in my lower abdomen, took another test definitely a BFP!!! I don’t have any “real” symptoms yet. I didn’t get symptoms with my son until I was over 6 weeks so I’m not worried. My line is way darker than last month with my chemical. I will continue to test to watch my line progression. Praying for a sticky bean! My AF is due in 5 days praying she never comes! Good luck ladies! Baby dust to everyone.

BFP 36 One Ovary Clomid 2nd Cycle

God is so great! I had a larascopic oophorectomy in December and had left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to previous ruptured cyst year prior as well as severe adhesion's from endometriosis. My cycles were shorter but it appeared my right ovary was ovulating. I tried for 6 months and it was causing strife between my husband and I due to stress. We took a break focused on clean eating and went to couples therapy. I started clomid 50 mg 5-9 and took at night. Month one was emotional and I thought I was pregnant but never got a positive test. The next month I prayed everyday. I asked God to show me his will if this was not my plan. I also focused on joy for other women conceiving and prayed for other women struggling. Focusing on how I could help others made me less stressed during cycle two. I committed to no crazy early testing (like testing before implantation is even possible) I BD every other day and three days in a row after CB digital positive ovulation.(Eight days after last pill) I drank Pink Stork Fertility tea till ovulation, took Evening Primrose oil and snacked on Organic Brazil nuts, I also took plant based COQ10 and Pink Store Prenatal. I never thought I would have my BFP this month. Side note I had strongest ovulation as I really felt and my progesterone levels are excellent. I have six week ultrasound next Monday and am nervous and ecstatic. I pray for all the brave women who stuggle and continue to try. Bless you and Baby Dust! Below are some of the things I noted during tww. 1 -3 dpo Nothing 4 dpo Strong pelvic pains started to worry had cyst. exhausted, starving, craving bad foods, lotiony cm, kind of horny, gas 5 dpo Pelvic pain went away, in good mood, Still tired, bm multiple times hard and not soft like normal, lots of creams cm when checking, water discharge early am and lots of gas 6 dpo not much gas..loads of gas 7 dpo not much gas..loads of gas..argument with DH. Angry when normally more weepy before AF 8 dpo Gas :(, at store shopping ran to bathroom and barely made it due to huge soft bm, sorry tmi (usually go to bathroom a lot right before af) 9dp-10dpo Convinced AF is coming light cramps no pregnant feeling, but I had odd tickling under belly button. I had a glass of wine and noticed heart rate is elevated. Now that I look back resting heart rate went up and stayed up after pregnancy. 11dpo (two days before af) take test convinced negative want to get out of the way line on FRER under two minutes 12dpo BFP on CB Digital and Confirmed Beta 17 HCG 14 dpo Beta 157 18 dpo Beta 1,758

BFP by DPO! 13DPO

After trawling the internet and reading 2ww success stories I’m so happy to share mine again! This is my 3rd pregnancy after TTC for approx 4 months. AF has only returned for 5 months as I’m still breastfeeding my 22mo DD. 1dpo: nothing 2-6dpo: fuller boobs and sensitive nipples (this symptom remains during the entire 2ww). 7dpo: frequent urination, tired, stretchy yellow white discharge like before AF usually, light cramps in evening :( at 10pm had a painful pinching in uterus for about 2 min - felt strange. 8dpo: Woke up with light cramps, moody. 9dpo: Cramps in AM, feels like AF coming. Little yellow white discharge. No cramps in day and PM. Gassy at night. 10dpo: Only light cramps in the morning. Constipation at night. Nausea and very tired during day. Heartburn after dinner. 11dpo: Constipation. Very tired. 12dpo: Weird sharp pain right side uterus for about a minute. 13dpo: Light cramps in morning. Elevated body temp: Shooting pains in nipples. So tired and irritable by 1pm. BFP at 1.30pm!!

I can’t believe it!

So this month our first month really trying and surprisingly we got pregnant! This will be our second child. I didn’t use OPKs, but was tracking my cycle with fertility friend. My cycles have been anywhere between 26-32 days with my OV day between 15-18. I got EW CM on CD 13 and CD 14, which led us to BD on CD 14 and CD 15 with preseed. After suspected OV day between CD15 to CD17, I got creamy CM, bursts of energy, tired at night (normally struggle to fall asleep before midnight and was going to bed by 8:30/9), wanted to clean the house constantly (not my thing lol) and got several twinges in my stomach. I was little moody, but that’s not terribly new! Poor DH. My CM has been creamy since OV, which is new as it usually becomes sticky or non existent. I just knew something was different this time. I tested on CD 26 and got my BFP! My DH and I are very excited. Baby will be born in June 2018!! Baby dust to you all!!

My husband and i tried to conceive for what felt like forever! We actually took a two cycle break and this cycle was the return of trying and WE GOT A BFP!!! im only 10 dpo right now and just,took the test tonight but it is a strong line. So on to what you came here for, symptoms of course! Before 8 dpo I didn't notice anything truly unusual. 8 dpo: really frequent urination... Like every 45 mins to an hour Nose was really dry with bloody boogers. Gross i know Wasnt getting any good sleep yet i was pretty tired 9dpo: nose thing again & urination same Felt a general but strong awareness behind my pubic bone almost like an ache at times Oh and two nights in a row (8&9 dpo) woke up from my sleep in the middle of the night with,aching boobs on the bottom and sides but only lasted,briefly,and just,those two times 10dpo: in the am when i peed i wiped and saw a thick & time sized amount of creamy cm which was odd.. I dont usually get that much of it at once Took a test at 10pm and a strong line appeared within 30 seconds Things that were a little different thise cycle were my boobs. Normally my boobs will be fuller and firmer after o but this cycle they just got fuller,and not firm at all like way more sqishy than usual. & i didnt o until CD 24 I still am in shock but i could not be more thankful and excited! GOD IS GOOD Peace & love and good luck to all!
