10 months ttc and feel like it's official

Posted by Artmama
I've been getting very faint lines on cheapies a since 10 dpo and by 13 dpo was getting worried that there was no progression. Finally had the opportunity to buy a digital and frer. Night of 13 dpo digital confirmed and was so excited to see a line pretty much as dark as control this morning on 14 dpo. I'm officially ready to let go of testing and let it be.

This is my second and while I'm excited, I am entirely more relaxed then the first time. I'm ready to enjoy nine full months of pregnancy, without as much anxiety or impatience. I'm ready for another baby but now that the stress of ttc is over (as long as everything goes well) the longer it takes for this baby to come, the better :)

Here are some of my symptoms

9dpo -super sore boobs, pretty good cramping, aching and pinching. It was distinctive in that it was earlier than I normally get cramping for af
10dpo-14dpo: increasing cm each day, ewcm by 14 dpo. Boobs still hurting but lessening each day
14 dpo-feeling hungry but very slightly nauseous a couple moments.

Anyway, excited for this and so relieved it finally happened. For so many months the bfns were just utterly disheartening. Congrats to other bfp-era and good luck to everyone still on the journey.

Waited nine months so I can wait nine months

Posted by Babyberg
So like anyone reading I wanted a baby. As each month passed I over symptom checked, googled every possible chance, even tried to convince myself what the start of AF was possibly just implantation. But when that horrible drop turned into another failed month honestly my heart got heavy. My cycles are really irregular and I found out I have pcos, which basically means my hormones are off and my ovarys don't know what they are doing. My ninth cycle into trying and after spending countless hours on the internet I found soy isoflavones. It's something you can take to help your eggs get nice and big and help prepare your uterus for the baby so I figured it couldn't hurt. I guess it's like a natural clomid from what I read but you double the dose. So I took 170mg on cycle days 4,5,6,7&8. To my surprise I ovulated super early (early for me) at cd 15 which really helps my chance.
1-4 dpo no symptoms
5 dpo dull cramping
6 dpo dull cramping
7 dpo dull cramping and crazy dreams, cm dried up
8 dpo dull cramping, crazy dreams, like nausea. ( super faint positive)
9 dpo same as yesterday and another faint positive but felt like I was crazy.
10 dpo same plus a slightly darker hpt and faints on two other brands.
11 headache, feeling of fullness, cramps, and another positive no denying this one.
12 dpo finally felt confident telling my husband. Same symptoms + lots of cm.
13 - 14 same symptoms plus strong positive.
15 dpo still taking it all in and same symptoms

I love watching that line get darker then the control line by 15 dpo. Just so greatful.
The only thing I noticed that was super differ t for every other month was the dull cramping / pressure but even at times I would have to sit still to realize it was still there. Best of luck and loads of baby dust.

Pregnant after 5 yrs and 3 IVF with PCOS and severe MFI. Pls dont give up!

Posted by reneee
My man and i started actively trying or a baby in 2011 and went to the gyny after unsuccessfully trying for 10 months , The gyny told us straight up that our only hope was IVF with ICSI because of my PCOS and his Azoospermia because of undescended testis as a baby. After 1 cancelled IVF cycle, we changed to a private clinic from the public one and there too our IVF cycle gave us no embryo to transfer.

Dh and 1 started accupuncture after the failed cycle, he got some hemepoathic remedy+ zinc, vit c and Liver oil too and i started with maca, cos liver oil, multivitamins, Q 10 and vitex was introduced right before the IVF stimulations. So 1 june 2016 we retrieved 9 eggs, out of those only 5 were mature enough for ICSI and out of the 5, 3 fertilised. On the 3 june 2016 we had 2 , 2 day old embryos left 1 had fallen out . out of the 2 the doctor meant only 1 was viable for a baby,but they put the 2 in.

the 2ww i basically lived on google. That was what kept me sane and i was so confused with my body, i didnt know if what i was experiencing was because of the hormones or true pregnancy symptoms so i wrote each day.
1dp2dt- woke up with wet panties,. gas n burping and full stomach, nipples are sentive and errect, some neausea and light headedness . feeling cold this evening on a very hot summer evening
2dp2dt- wet again morgen and midday, might be the progesterone vaginal pilla, tired took a nag. full stomach, gas and some burping.
3dp2dt- feeling in tip top shape today, almost no symptoms apart from some gas and burping. fatigue and some feeling of neausea. Accupuncture today
4dp2dt- woke up with the full heavy feeling in my abdomen, but i had to go to the loo too, so may be that. barely there cramping and sticking, i think i am getting mad, am i imagining it? some fatigue and neausea
5dp2dt- no symptoms expect for a bout of neausea midday. barely there cramps in the evening
6dp2dt-wet again this morning because i didnt use a pad, was panicked i was becoming dry but was very wet again this morning. no symptoms this morning. cervix is HSC, i just had to know . nausea in the late afternoon and some gas but i am still afraid its all in my head. a bit of a chill this evening
7dp2dt-woke up very wet, wetness had seeped/come over from pad in my panties. no symptoms during the day. chills towards evening, bent over gardening and i thought i pulled something right side of my stomach. twinges right side of my stomach. sore nipples, barely there twinges in left breast
8dp2dt-No symptoms this morning, going to a barbecue, but stuffing my face 30 min before bcos i am so hungry. i have been eating since 11am- 6pm, shooting pains right stomach and right breast. burping nonstop and some nausea, but i dont know if it is in my head. neausea and lightheaded the whole evening at the barbecue.breast and nipple pain evening. upper back pain. Dh said i had bombed the room when he came to bed
9dp2dt- mild cramps this morning before getting up. tired tok a nap in car and 2 hrs in bed. wet pad spilled over to panties. examined my face, lots of small pimples
10dp2dt- cervix felt soft& open,yellow thick cm like glue. some barely there cramps. breasts feel like on fire. loosing hope, noticed litt blod on lutinus stick . implantation bleed or the end
11dp2dt- bled a little more at 1 am and thought period was coming on, wasnt feeling any symptoms. tok a test for closure and got BFP. Spotting stopped. Dh thinks its the embryo that didnt stick that bled out. Lots og energy today havnt slept since 1 am, went to work like normal and still not sleepy as i type this. strange!
12dp2dt- All symptoms vanished, feel a flutter in my stomach once in a while. feeling gr8

Babydust to everyone!!!

Was on my 4th month ttc. THIS BAKING SODA METHOD WORKED! TRY IT

Posted by Purplesyncere
Hey. Im back. Got two positives yesterday but didnt want it to be a false positive so i took a digital week estimator cb a few mins ago. Okay EVERYONE on here thought i was CRAZY for doing the baking soda method because of how it looks and sounds BUT OBVIOUSLY it worked. If you CAN conceive and just HAVEN'T YET, TRY this method. It's the Baking Soda Method. When you are fertile, an HOUR BEFORE SEX put 2tbsp of water and 2tbsp of baking soda in a clean cup(mix it up). Get a finger or two(up to you, i used one finger) dip it to your first little knuckle on your finger(make sure you get enough on your finger, or just dip it twice) put it around the inside of your vagina walls. It shouldn't burn if your cervix is high. If it's low like mine was it might have a TIIIINNYYY little burn (it wont hurt anything at all i promise). Then an hr later dtd, you will notice your cm will stay sticky (this is so the sperm will stay caught up there longer) . Do this method until after ovulation day and I BET YOU WILL BE PREGNANT. me and hubby was on our 4th month trying and THIS IS THE ONLY METHOD THAT WORKED. Baby dust to all.

irregular cycle

Posted by baby sparkles
I have a very irregular cycle ranging from 29 - 60+ days.

On the 4th may I had different cm and decided to do a opk which to my surprise turned out positive!! during the tww I had a really bad migraine and sister from hot flushes which is really unlike me. Also my cm was creamy and think whereas it is usually watery out non existent at this stage. At 13 dpo I got a cheapie which showered a very very faint second line. I decided to wait a little and did another test yesterday which what a BFP!!! I cant believe it on so shocked!!! I'm still having hot flushes and mild cramping. It goes to show that even with very irregular periods you can still conceive! Good luck and baby dust to you all ???? ???? any questions about symptoms etc please feel free to message me.
