No symptoms - BFP at 10 DPO, 12DPO and 18DPO

Posted by Kantele
Hello girls!

I'm a bit of a symptoms checker so I just wanted to share with you my BFP story.

1st of all, I want to let you know that this pregnancy was not planned and it is a bit of a miracle that I am actually pregnant. I haven't talked with the GP yet but I have been on the contraceptive pill for the past 6 months and I should not be pregnant.

Having said that, I have abusing them a bit in the past few months as I have had 3 different holidays and I didn't want to have my periods while I was away and also in December (just before I ovulated) I had 3-4 day diarrhea that apparently can make the pill not work.

ANYWAY, long story a bit shorter. I was going away for ANOTHER holiday for the new years and knowing that I will be drinking etc. I thought that I am just going to do a pregnancy test because like I said earlier, I had been abusing the pills a bit. I was 10 DPO and had NO SYMPTOMS what so ever, so not really sure why I even went to buy the test.
To my shock the test gave me a faint positive, which really freaked me out and to be honest I didn't believe it. It was one of the super early first response ones that say they will detect pregnancy 6 days before period.
SO, I went on the holiday and said to myself that it was nothing, I AM NOT PREGNANT.
There were two tests in the packet and I did a second test on 12 DPO - positive again, and not a faint one this time either - oh dear!

Got back from my holiday yesterday (17DPO) - still no symptoms. Was certain that it was just that brand that was giving me fake positives or it was detecting some super early hormones that would just end up as chemical pregnancy or something...

SO, today I went to boots and bought a cheap boots brand and a clearblue double pack that came with digital and a regular test. Dipped them all in the same urine sample I had collected in the morning and literally not even a minute later, they were all saying that I was pregnant.
Clearblue digi said 2-3... which to me is a bit much as I am not that far in yet, I guess my HcG levels are healthy.

I haven't had any symptoms, at least nothing I can mention.

If I REALLY have to look into how I have been feeling, I guess my breasts have been ever so slightly tender (but my bf was still having fun with them haha) and I have had a bit of a nausea, but I can't say it is because of the pregnancy as I have that often anyway.

Good luck girls, just because you don't have symptoms doesn't mean you are not pregnant :)

1st Time Pregnancy

Posted by Number1RN
I will make this short as I can.
My partner and I decided to try to conceive in Sept. I had the Nexplanon for 3 years. We started actively trying in October. I feel as though the months went by the fastest yet the slowest every time I took a pregnancy test. I ovulated on December 20th and a week after, I started to mildly cramp. On New Years Eve, my partner had a surprise romantic night waiting for me, only for me to end up on the bathroom floor most of the night! 13 dpo I felt pregnant, 14dpo I got a 2 faint positives. I called the doctor and went in, the urine test was negative! They figured my hcg wasn't high enough during the day, so they did a blood test. My little peanut was confirmed at 33 hcg! Tomorrow I will be 4 weeks and will go in for my 2nd blood draw. Hoping to see those numbers double. I am scared and nervous, but more than anything, grateful and blessed. Pregnancy so far has been a happy time for me so I really am cherishing it! For the short time I have been pregnant. :) Baby dust to all. Happy healthy pregnancies for everyone. We have taught our 3 year old to pray for a healthy baby!

TTC After Breastfeeding

Posted by sarahfw
I gave birth to my youngest child in July 2015 and breastfed her until September 2016. We started TTC in September. I had my first menstrual cycle in late November and conceived during that cycle. I didn't necessarily track but tried to stay aware of my CP and CM, and referenced an ovulation calculator. Because I only experienced one menstrual cycle post partum, I did not know when my next cycle was due. I estimated, using the length of my cycles before my last pregnancy. I didn't get a BFP until the day I thought I might be due. I confirmed with a blood test, and am just 4 and a half weeks pregnant.

Our miracle baby!!

Posted by Mrs. Vet
I finally get to share our story here! Waited as I was afraid to jinx it, I am now 15w4d pregnant.

We had been at 2 fertility clinics and had confirmed that the chances of us conceiving naturally were under 1%. We ultimately decided against fertility treatments for various reasons, one of them being that the chances for success weren't all that great either given the cost financially, emotionally and physically.

So we had settled for a life without kids. We bought a house, were currently planning on getting a second dog and had grieved what we thought would be our life. We were happy the way things were at this point most of the time, even though the pain was always there and came up with any pregnancy announcement, seeing people with kids and all that..

On occasion my body would play cruel tricks on me, giving me weird symptoms and my period would be late. I didn't think much of it at this point and the ritual was that I would take a pregnancy test, get a negative result and the same day or day after my period would start. I called it my "monthly slap in the face".

This time I did the same thing, even though I wasn't even late yet. Not sure why I did it this early, I wasn't really keeping track of my cycles anymore so I might just have thought it was time.
Looking back I must have been about 10 or 11DPO as we only had done the deed once that cycle.

This time, for the first time ever I got a faint line! I thought i had a bad batch of tests but was getting anxious. Went to work and could hardly focus and got a bunch of more different tests on the way home. They didn't have digis at that store though.
I took every single one of these tests and sure enough, every single one came up positive.
I went to a different store that night and got a bunch of digis. Every single one said "pregnant"!
To say I was shocked is putting it very nicely! This was what we were told was impossible to happen!
I hysterically called every doctor in the area (it was fall vacation time over here) and we ended up going 60km to our former fertility clinic for a blood test the next day that confirmed I was indeed pregnant.

Pregnancy hasn't been easy so far and given our history we are still very anxious about every little thing and nervous about every ultrasound but so far the baby is doing well and growing normal!

Looking back I had some symptoms, I just had my body playing tricks on me so many times that I didn't think anything about it!
Not sure what dpo as I wasn't keeping track of things at all:

- more hungry
- i suddenly couldn't stand some foods anymore that I used to love (2 I remember were almond butter and pineapple, used to eat both all the time and now I still can't eat them again to this day)
- our dog was acting off and became extremely attached and protective of me
- I think it was 2 days after we dtd (not sure) when I had a very sharp pain in my right side and had a bit of bloody show. I thought it was ovulation and that we most likely missed the egg as we had no chance to do it that day but now I think it might have been implantation.

So, I am crossing my fingers for all of you girls here and I can only tell you to never give up hope! Miracles do happen, the proof of that is in my growing belly and is letting me feel the first flutters that I assume are going to be kicks in a few weeks..

BFP after 2 years

Posted by heartsabby
Hey girls,

I promised myself, like many of you have, that I would share my bfp story here to help others who are symptom spotting.
I'm 26, DH is 29, we've been ttc for 2 years on our own, went in to see a fertility specialist this month and it worked!

First of all, I actually ovulated on my own this cycle which is really unusual for me.. so that was pure coincidence.
Second, we got to see when I was going to ovulate through u/s.
Third, symptoms:

Main symptoms are: bloating, gas, sore hips and legs, dizziness when I stand, and insomnia.
I can't sleep worth a crap. I'm not very tired, not like I thought I'd be, but then again, I'm used to running on very little. The things that stood out to me the most were the dizziness. I got dizzy riding my bike to school the other day and I get out of breath really easy when I exercise which is really unusual for me... I have been forgetting IMPORTANT things.. and idk.. I just knew.

0 dpo: gassy, heartburn like crazy (didn't even know that's what it was..had never had it before, dh filled me in on the nitty gritty), backaches that started in my pelvis and fanned out into my back, less hungry, INSOMNIA

1 dpo: right pelvic pain (o on right side) bloating, pee a LOT, INSOMNIA

2 dpo: gas, gas, gas (wtf?! not usual for me), dizziness when I stand up, bloating, dull crampyness, INSOMNIA

3 dpo: better appetite, pee a LOT, bloating, gas, dizziness, INSOMNIA

4 dpo: VERY tired, dizziness, mild cramps, bloating, gas, pee a LOT, INSOMNIA

5 dpo: sleepy but not worn out... like i'm getting sick, pee a LOT, headaches, dizziness, bloating,
mild cramps, INSOMNIA

6 dpo: bloating, gas, pee a LOT, dizziness, INSOMNIA
POS- BFN (I have a problem, ok?)

7 dpo: first sign of morning sickness- woke up and felt fine then ate and felt very sick, sore legs and hips (this one has continued HARD), bloating, gas, pee a LOT, dizziness, less appetite, INSOMNIA
pregnancy brain. I let my dog out to go pee and forgot about him until he whined ten minutes later at the door. I FORGOT MY DOG OUTSIDE!

8 dpo: nausea, bloating, pee a LOT, joint pain, tight muscles like I ran a marathon, INSOMNIA I felt very pregnant. I had no inclination by this point that I could be out this cycle.

9 dpo: Sore legs and hips...like SERIOUSLY, bloating, dizziness, gas, INSOMNIA
pregnancy brain- I left my backpack at home...walking a mile to school. o.m.g.

10 dpo: nausea, fatigue, dizziness, bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA

11 dpo: dizziness, bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA

12 dpo: bloating, gas, soreness, INSOMNIA POS- BFP!!!!!!!

Honestly, the test came up positive right away... but you know those minutes of waiting can seem like a rollercoaster. At first the pink color started to hover over the test line (never seen it do that before) as it washed over and that was really strange to me, so I keep watching and I see the control get darker, then I think... "no way this is negative. I have to take out another test.. this one is bunk.. there's no way it's negative." I was getting ready to straight up pick up another test when I look back and it's positive. Faint, but not VERY faint!! (pic is in gallery)
