BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Praise the Lord

This past Monday night, I'd POAS daily for the last 3 days, and then another that morning. Driving home, I was praying about it, and remembering Sunday's sermon about how Gideon puts out a fleece (test) for God, asking God to "prove you're telling me what to do". So I start pondering, and feel that God is assuring me if I POAS that night it would be positive. Well, that doesn't make any sense - my period isn't due for 3 more days, so FMU is the only way to get a BFP this soon. I go home, POAS and leave it in the bathroom. Run downstairs to start a load of laundry, and think to myself - is asking God to confirm this wrong? Well, Gideon asked God for confirmation, and he had lives at stake. Sure, he should ask, but should I? You would want to know if you were hearing from God if it meant going to battle. So then I think - God, do you really want me to be pregnant? We had a miscarriage in May, maybe this isn't your will? And then I was reminded that Jesus said he came to give us life, and give it to us more abundantly. That must include motherhood in my opinion (it takes all forms - adoption/mentoring, etc). But I'm feeling assured - and then I think - am I just being crazy? Am I putting "words" in God's mouth because it's what I WANT to hear? And I was reminded that we are his sheep, and his sheep hear his voice. If you don't hear, it's because you don't belong to him. So I decided to stand in faith. I spoke scripture over my situation, reminding God that he said in his word, whatever we ask in prayer, believe that you received it. Then I asked him to help me with my unbelief, because although I know that God is the only giver of life, and that He is the only one in control, it's still difficult for me to believe it's not just me wanting this to be true. I went and looked at the test - BFP!!!!!! (Well, actually big "faint" positive).... to which I proceeded to take 3 more tests the next day - finally a nice dark BFP, and then blood draw yesterday, HCG is at 44, and my period isn't even due until tomorrow. How AMAZING is God!!!!!!!!!! So - that's my story - God is the ONLY one who creates life - it amazes me that he would use our bodies to do it! Now, I can't say that just because you pray, God immediately answers your prayer - which is all the more amazing to me that I heard from God, acted on his word, and am blessed with a pregnancy. Here comes the shocker: I had almost NO SYMPTOMS over the last few weeks. The only thing I found strange was increased sense of smell on ONE occasion. Then last night - only 2 days into the BFP, I have been crampy all day, headaches, and VAST nausea. Not that I "want" to be sick, but we had a miscarriage in May at 5 1/2 weeks - I really didn't have many symptoms. So this time I welcome any proof that peanut is burrowed in. I am amazed at God, that I went from having no symptoms, to plenty of them. All things in His time. I couldn't force Him, as much as I asked. I had been praying all along. There's no secret recipe or secret set of prayers. There's no "good behavior" that gets rewarded. It's faith, and an everlasting relationship with him. Look at scripture - we are NOT the first women to be grieved trying to conceive. I don't know how he will answer your prayers, but I know that he is faithful and loving, and is walking with each of us through this most difficult journey of TTC. I hope you don't mind how long this is. Some might think I'm crazy - but I KNOW that God wanted me to give him HIS GLORY for being the ONLY ONE that made this come to pass. I have lots of things I've been doing - but I know that I know that I know that it was GOD ALONE that created life, using us!

This is so nice. Praise the ALl Mighty! H & H 9 to you

Praise the Lord, for HE is so awsome. Caongrats...

Haven't been on this site in quite a while, and have been wondering what God is up to. Is my answer no? If so, it would serve me right. I have had multiple abortions. Now, I read this from you. I know God can do it, regardless of whether He will. Blessings.

Thank you for your post.

Congratulations, and thank you for sharing this, it's just what I needed to hear. god bless your little bean :)

This brought tears to my eyes. Your story is so heavy on my heart, I HAD to comment. Thanks so much for sharing and many blessings to you and your lil bean :-)

Thank you for sharing. This really spoke to me.

This was wonderful and just what I needed to read! I had a miscarriage in June, and have been praying ever since and giving all my worries to God. I just got my BFP also, and I am trying to not stress, it's taking alot of prayer! Thank you for these words, I will be praying for a happy and healthy 9 months for you!

Sweet words! I'm giving my testimony about miscarriage in December, and it's amazing how God can use the bad things (note I didn't say cause them) for good. And if I can address Trying for Years, God offers forgiveness and hope; He's not punishing you. I know that the Pregnancy Resource Center has support groups for those that have had abortions to help with the healing and forgiving yourself. Look into it if you haven't already. Blessings!

Congratulations!! and wow, what an amazing story :-) all the best!!

I wanted to thank you for writing your story. I have felt down and lost right now and your story gives me hope. I have prayed and begged God to tell me how to pray and my heart still falls to having a baby. I could relate to your story so much and thank you again because once again God lets us know that we are not alone. God bless your baby and family!

I was JUST listening to the radio this morning about the pain abortions cause - so many people want to think about just the aborted baby, but we quickly forget about the pain you went through and now go through again questioning & doubting. The Bible tells us about Paul who murdered Christians, then God opened his eyes, he saw God's truth, and God used him in AMAZING ways. Dear sister, God is always waiting with open arms. I've found with bad choices in my own past, sometimes I've opened the doors to dire consequences...but even then, God is bigger than my problems. If you press into your relationship with Him, he will bless you in ways MUCH BIGGER than just a child. (I hope a child too). But he knows EVERYTHING, and what we need most. I found when I was a "baby Christian", things were easy. Now that I know of his love - he works on my paitence and character - which take longer to develop that a quick YES, here's your answer. I always thought I would be married at 24, kids at 26 and 28, done by 30. Well, since I just got MARRIED at 32, I realize that HIS timing isn't mine - but I appreciate that he made me wait. I am closer to Him, and my husband now isn't my "all in all" in life - he's a perk to life (if that makes sense). I am writing this with prayers for you to seek Him, and he PROMISES if you do, he will draw near to you!

Beautifully written story. This is why I read this website:)

All praise to God! I am praying for you and your family. Thank you so much for sharing your story. We are trying again after miscarriage. It's always so encouraging to hear stories of great faith!

God bless you my dear, you inpsired me! Thank you!

Thank you for your testimony. It is very encouraging. It is amazing how God uses mere people. He used you to be a blessing to those of us still holding on to faith. Thank you and God bless you and your seed.

I am completely AMAZED by your story. Our story is not much different than yours even to the point where I had miscarried earlier this year & just thought that it wasn't in His will for me to be a mother. We serve an ALMIGHTY God don't we? I think you can try all the remedies on this earth to get pregnant, but going to our Lord in prayer is ULTIMATE remedy and on 11 DPO we got a very strong BFP! We owe all of our GLORY to God! Thank you Lord, thank you!!

Thank you, God has used you to minister to me. I will keep trusting and holding on to his faithfulness and love.

TO 'Trying for years' I just read your comment and God told me to respond to you. Firstly: Our all loving God gave me this verse for you: Luke 18: 15-16 says: Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God". God is telling you that the children you have aborted are safe with Him in Heaven. Secondly: God wants you to know that he loves you and forgives you and that your past is washed clean because of the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. All you have to do is accept his forgiveness. God loves you more than you'll ever know, draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. Accompany 'knowing God can do this' with 'accepting his forgiveness'. May the Lord bless you and keep you; may He make his face to shine upon you and have mercy on you; may the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and cause peace to settle upon you. - Numbers 6:24-26 Go and make babies

Bridie, thank you for the verse. I really needed that today.

Congratulations to you and your dh. I am positive God will bless your family. I am glad he spoke to you on and delivered such a beautiful gift. Thank you for sharing your story, it really touched me. As I read this, tears rolled down my face. I've had my own prayers and messages this month. After consulting my obgyn, my dh and I were to start fertility treatments. I had some stuff come up, unrelated to ttc, and I asked god to help me and guide me on what to do. And while I was praying on this, I kept feeling/hearing about ttc and letting it happen in god's will and to let things happen naturally. (I am not saying this is always god's will or plan. But i feel like it is for us at the moment) I am not a prayer, this is the first time I had prayed in awhile... truth be told, im not really religious. I do however believe we have creator, God. I know this to be true when I look into my son's eyes and know he nothing short of a miracle and blessing from God.
