BFP, really?!!

Posted by DeLaSommer
Just got my first BFP yesterday on a digital pregnancy test (it showed 2-3 weeks), very very unexpected! I had a biochemical pregnancy in Nov 2014 and had been trying ever since. Diagnosed with high level of prolactin and thought of it as the major hindrance for not being able to fall pregnant. So my gyno referred me to an endocrinologist & I was supposed to get an MRI scan (pituitary gland) done yesterday, but the day prior the MRI staff wanted to confirm if I was pregnant thus prompted me to do HPT.

Lo & behold, the HPT strip came up with two lines, I was quite shocked! Then the next morning I did the digital, even more shocking! Apart from the prolactin issues, my periods were irregular as well (ranging from 31 to 44 days per cycle), I never knew when I would ovulate and my partner has low motility sperm count. So this pregnancy is quite surprising, but thank you God!!

I began taking Royal Jelly supplements in Jan 2015, I want to say that perhaps it could be a big contributor of me falling pregnant but who knows..

Got blood test done today, results will be ready by Friday.. ugh can't wait, please stick lil one, stick it out for the next 9 months. Today I'm clinically 5 weeks pregnant :)

Surprise baby!

Posted by karliputman
We were not trying to get pregnant, but I knew from the day I ovulated that I was pregnant, so I kept a close eye on my dpo. I'm currently 13 dpo, but my symptoms started at 3 dpo.

3 dpo-7 dpo cramping a lot, like af cramps. Thought maybe my period was just going to come really soon. cervix was high, semi-soft, closed

8 dpo Nothing. All cramping stopped. Cervix moved low. Thought for sure my period was coming.
9 dpo That night I checked my cp and cm. I could a small amount of pink cm that barely covered the tip of my finger. When I checked again later that night, it was gone. This was when I really started to suspect. Cramping started again, like af was coming. Cp high soft and closed
10 dpo Took my first test and came back a very very light positive. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I showed my husband and he insisted there was nothing there. Back, legs, and abdomen were cramping all day long.
11 dpo Took a blue dye equate brand test and came back as a slightly darker positive! Husband still insisted it should be darker. Cramps continued
12 dpo Took a +/- and got a nice dark BFP! Cramps
13 dpo Took a digital this morning that showed Pregnant! Cramping has continued and feels like af is on the way. From what I hear it is a good sign as long as there is no bleeding. My little bean is making room! My appetite has increased today and I'm very fatigued.

That's it ladies. My breasts didn't hurt (and still don't). The only real sign for me was that spot of blood on my cervix. My cervix is currently low, soft, and closed with creamy cm. So if your cervix is low, don't think you are out of the game! It is tilted towards the back of my vagina, though.

I have tried to have a baby before and was never able to because of the stress I put on myself. Let God handle it, and it will happen! We weren't trying, and it looks like that was the best way to do it for us! GL to everyone!!!

8 Months and he/she is finally coming.

Posted by Lorrastine
I am so excited to finally be able to put this out there. I have been pawning around websites for almost 7 months looking up anything and everything about TTC and what to do how to do it, and how to get pregnant...FAST! It was so stressful at times where I just sat and cried because I could not figure out what was wrong with me and why I was not having any luck in the process.. I tried loads of stuff from being propped up on a pillow to pre-seed and soft-cups. All of these things didn't work for me and it just got frustrating.

but FINALLY I got my BFP and here's how...

I quit it all...
I quit the pre-seed, i would use soft-cups but only if I felt like I should use them. I still kept up with a fertility monitor because I really do like knowing when I am ovulating or close to it... But I was worry free. I no longer was BDing to make a little one, I was doing it for fun and for my DH and I.
We just "gave up" to say the least. I didn't let it bother me that it wasn't working, and I got off all of the baby sites. My focus was on me and my DH.
When I became stress free and I quit trying as much, that is when I got pregnant. Now I know a lot of people say thats what they did, but it is true. I just did not care about it and just trusted that I would have the little one when it was deemed a good time for me.
And unlike every moth I kept trying, this month I wasn't doing the 2 week wait, I did not symptom spot I just had the usual pre menstrual symptoms the only difference was thats

1: My boobs were mildly sore, but my nipples were on FIRE! I mean the slightest graze from a cotton shirt gave me chills and sent pain coursing through my breast. I usually get nipple pain before my period, but not as bad as this and really did not last as long as this. FYI the nipple pain has gotten more bearable but it is a still so achy at times.

2. If I got up a little too fast or moved somewhere, I was getting a little dizzy and nauseous. I felt like i would need to sit down immediately.

3. I was sleeping, A lot... I would go home from work, sleep for 8 hours wake up, go to classes (yes I am in college) and come home and sleep more before work. It was a constant rotation of sleeping, and my dreams were CRAZY!! Still are pretty crazy I might add.

and last

4. I became really gassy, another sign of my period was coming. I had my gallbladder out last year so when i get gassy or a bubbly tummy it was expected. I even get gassy and gross before my period so I didn't think anything of it.

I actually tested negative for about 3 days before I tested positive.

Story here is that I did not expect I was pregnant, I didn't even realize the symptoms after I got the BFP. So just give it a break from the constant pawning of baby pages and the time you need to BD now to get pregnant... Just take time for you..

Finaly!

Posted by TaliGro
Had miscarriage 9 months ago. TTC for 6 month now. did everything by the book, used opk's, bedded on the right days, and nothing!
This month, we bedded only 2 days - one after another - when I first saw a faint line on Opk, and th following day that there was a stronger line and that's all.
And it worked.
Amazingly - few days after ovulation me breasts started to hurt a lot. Never had that symptom before - not before period and not at all. at 7DPO decided to try "just for fun" an internet chippie pregnancy test. It came out almost invisible positive. The day after tried with a high accuracy one - POSITIVE!
Since than testing almost every day - just to see the line get darker.
Hopefully this time it stick.
Good Luck to us all!

Go with your feelings!

Posted by Mum2BabyGirl
I started trying to conceive using donor sperm and Iui in my early 30's.
From the start, before the first try even, I remember having a feeling it would take 5 tries, but I didn't want to believe it and I was just as hopeful on the first as the 5th. Each negative pregnancy test left me with a heart more broken than the time before.

On the 5th time I was taking progesterone and clomid (very low dose of each) as well as HSG trigger shot... THe dr. told me to trigger 36 hrs before and come back on Tuesday for IUI. I spent the weekend crying because I was SURE that I should be coming back for IUI on Monday. I thought I had blown it by accepting the Tuesday date. I triggered for Tuesday on Sunday/Monday midnight... but still felt wrong so Monday morning I called back and begged to be brought in that day instead and they agreed, but I could tell they thought I was nuts to attempt it a day early, especially having triggered for the next day... I didn't care...
I started getting symptoms right away (boy did implantation hurt!) and tested with a dollar store test at 15dpo. First I thought it was negative and I was so sure it was working that I was confused, but then I saw that extra faint line... 4 more tests in the next few days got progressively lighter, I thought I lost it already, went to the dr. for a blood test and HSG levels were very high.
At 6.5 weeks I started spotting and was devastated... spent the day in the hospital where they did a blood test and told me they'd do two more on Monday/Tuesday (this was a thursday or friday) I got the results of all three online and the numbers were VERY high and going up but no where near doubling like I thought they were supposed to... so I was still worried, though the spotting had stopped after one day, I was also getting cramps.
I went for an ultrasound when I thought I should have been 8.5 weeks along, they got the heart beat only for a second and kept losing it and said no, I'm only 7.5 weeks, so that worried me too, as I knew for sure the conception date... then I was also starting to spot again around the same time... I spotted all weekend with cramps that time...
But each appointment, my little one had a strong heartbeat after that. I also had severe morning sickness (All-day sickness more like it, and it lasted the entire pregnancy!) My dr. pushed my due date back up the week when I was 5 months along, saying I had better go with the earlier date as he thought date of conception more likely to be accurate than the ultrasound. My Baby girl arrived exactly 3 weeks early based on the earlier due date.
