5 months ttc finally got bfp :)

Posted by Lolpop
Finally after 5 months ttc I have got my bfp. :) yey! The only thing I can think that I did deferent ly this time is (I know everyone says it) but I just relaxed and didn't stress about doing every little thing to try get pregnant. We just had fun and if it happens it happens. I'm 15 dpo and I've just got my 4 th faint positive and I'm two days late for my period so I'm pretty chuffed.

The only symptoms I had was (sorry tmi) really bad diarrhea and soft stools from about 3 dpo until 11 dpo and then I was constipated :/ I also took evening primrose oil tablets this month which I think helped ewcm a lot so I would recommend that if you don't usually have much like me.

I hope my lines get darker and it's a sticky baby :)

Good luck to everyone ttc and lots of baby dust :) :) x

Finally got my BFP - Stick lil bean! stick!

Posted by FireWife496
This was cycle 6 for us. I was on prenatals from the start and used OPKs and BBT. We had a chemical pregnancy on cycle 4. I went the dr. and she said that I had a luteal phase defect, because my luteal phase was only 10 days and it wasnt giving the proper time for implantation. She had me start taking b6. I also started taking red maca root capsules and DH took black maca root capsules. This month we also added preseed to our method. We did the sperm meets egg method, which is BDing every other day starting on cycle day 8 and once you get a pos OPK you BD that day, and the next two.... skip a day and then BD once more for good measure. I also did yoga for fertility and meditation. I think all of these factors helped.

Symptoms... not really a whole lot. Some dull cramping/ aching, sore nips, pronounced veins, backache (but im the mom of a 2 yr old so that kind of constant), stuffy nose, headaches and the big difference is frequent urination.
I had to pee every 3 hours yesterday, which is highly unusual for me.

These symptoms differed from my pregnancy with DS. With him my boobs hurt so bad and were so swollen and that was pretty much the only thing.

Good luck. Don't give up hope. Try some way to relax at least once a day and dont be afraid to try something new.

Very happy :)

This collection of stories has been such a source of hope and so fun to read! I made it through about page 80, then we got our BFP and I knew I had to post our story.

We have been TTC since April, but not really hard. The first couple months I was figuring out my cycle and OPKs and then DH was out of town during the "prime time" for two months, then two cycles later we conceived.

We used PreSeed, I really think it was a humongous help. I would put it in privately using the applicator right at my cervix roughly 15 minutes before BD. I don't know if DH even knows I used it :)

I had a positive OPK on Wednesday and BD the Sunday prior, Weds. and Thurs. All details count, so here goes: DH finished from behind twice and missionary once. I laid on my back and front after for roughly 10 minutes each side. I do get UTI if I don't pee after intercourse so I used the restroom shortly thereafter.

I was convinced my short LP of 10-11 days was going to be a problem with conceiving, or that I lost all sperm when peeing, and a million other negative thoughts. Not true obviously! The internet can be awesome but also terrible for giving you things to stew on, leading to fear.

A week after O (the following Thurs) I was unusually dizzy at my workout. Same for the following two days when I got a little hungry. Sunday tested with a very slight, barely noticeable line. Took an OPK for S&G's and it came back boldly positive. This was what really piqued my interest.

Went to work Monday, day AF was due at 11 DPO, got FRER and Clear blue digitalis at lunch and both we're positive. Told husband as our 2nd year anniversary present (we've been together almost nine :)) only real symptoms have been sore boobs under armpits and small cramps and occasional dizzyness. And I want lots of ice cream.

I was really hoping for this BFP on/for our anniversary and wrote a note to myself with my "ideal cycle" where I put 9/9 as the BFP day. I kept it in my purse all week. I don't know if it helped but maybe! The only heartbreaking part about this all is not being able to tell my mom, my best friend, cry and share joy with her as she passed away 9 months ago. I just have to hope she helped and knows, and is my guardian angel.

Best of luck to everyone!

Success after a long age gap

Posted by moomin mama
Having older children we decided we'd like another, 10 year age gap from our youngest and in our mid 30s were thinking this could take a while.. After being on the pill for a number of years I came off in April and my periods pretty much reverted back to normal every 28 days. Last month we got our hopes up as 28 days came and went, thought I had every early pregnancy symptom around but every test was negative until day 35 when af showed her ugly face!!! This month we weren't expecting much, not trying, as it was holiday time we left the ovulation sticks at home and thought we would be out of the game this month. After a few days of tiredness, cramps, unusual CM and tension headaches we decided to test the day before af, this showed a very very faint line that I put down to an evaporation line, then after af should have been here we tested again, this appeared as faint positive in the morning but was unsure if this was an evaporation line again or a cheap ebay test, tried again a different cheap ebay test in the afternoon and again faint positive... so this morning went for the Boots digital and 'Pregnant' so pleased but now it doesn't seem real, apart from some CM this morning nothing else hurts,nothing feels odd, headaches have gone, boobs are normal and i'm feeling bouncy, whilst hubby is just walking round with a huge grin....

Answered prayer

Posted by kca_pie
I'm afraid to believe. But I see two lines. I've been seeing them since yesterday. I can't believe it. God heard my prayer.

My last baby died just 8 hours after birith. She was 6 days over due. It was a spontaneous vaginal delivery. We don't know exactly why she died. But I visit her grave every Sunday. And I miss her excruciatingly.

For the last 7 months I have been pleading with God to send me another child to love since it will likely be a very very long time before I get to hold my little daughter again. I'm 38. I already have 4 living children. I wasn't sure if God would let me do it again. He gave me five, but sent one home much too soon. But he had mercy for my aching heart. He gave me time to heal my body, mind and spirit. I dont' think I'll every 100% be healed from watching my baby die in my arms utnil she is back in my arms again ALIVE. But I've done a good deal of healing.
And in His own time, (NOT MINE!!), another babe is on the way. He/She will be born just a month before I turn 39. I told God I really wanted to have this baby before I turn 39 just because I'm proud and selfish. But he let me have that little wish.
I can't wait. I'm so sublimely happy. I feel such peace. A peace I have not felt for more than 7 months.
Now, I do believe that you have to act like it all depends on you, and then pray like it all depends on God, so I did EVERYTHING in my own power to make this baby come!! My list of tricks and tips would impress you!! But I know it wasn't me. This is a blessing. A pure blessing. I am so incredibly blessed. I am a mother of SIX!
Now, I just have to pray this baby home from the hospitial in good health.
