Faint Positive!

Posted by ashjen
Sunday November 16, I got my faint positive result. I tested at 2am because I couldn't sleep anymore. This will make my FIRST child and I'm 30 years old. This was my second IUI. I am just so excited and shocked. It's been a long road. My strongest symptom was bloating. I feel like I have been bloated for 2 weeks now. But it's all worth it. God is so amazing at what he does. Still praying for a happy and HEALTHY pregnancy. Thank you Jesus!!!! I'm gonna be a Mother!

Just when you have lost hope!

Posted by jackson_hailey
I have been TTCing since January 2014, in April we got our first +hpt to then lose the pregnancy at 6weeks in May :( We started trying again and very realized how much I wanted a baby til I thought I couldn't have one! :( Last month I was sure I was pregnant!!!! Sorry b b ' s like crazy, every little thing I thought I had! You can look at my charts! Then that B*tch AF showed up and I was heartbroken.....This month I was sure I was out, no sore bb's, not strong symptoms. ...nothing til 9dpo I started to have cramps and just figured AF was going to show her ugly face again early....cramps for a week! No blood....very surprised!!! Was so convinced I was out that I ordered Preseed to try for next cycle....then on 10 dpo after sex I had spotting get and I told my husband that he must of pulled the AF right out of me cause it was starting....changed all my apps and websites to the first day of the next cycle and accepted that this again wasn't my month :(

THEN the next day the bleeding wasn't continuing....confused I said I must be having a longer cycle which made me mad that it would be even harder to track with a wacky cycle.....then I decided with my last pregnancy test I would take it if I still didn't get it on what I'm guessing is now 15dpo....so the next day....feeling that I was just wasting my last pregnancy test for the hell of it I took it...got in the shower and almost forgot about it....til I got out of y he shower and almost had a heartache!!!!!

A BIG FAT POSITIVE!!!! :) â?¡ I WAS SO EXCITED I COULDNT HOLD IT IN (like I had wanted to if I found out I wanted to tell my husband in a excited cute way but was way to excited and in disbelief! )

It can happen ladies! We might thing we know our bodies so well....track for over a year....do whatever we think is right...but truly it will happen when God has planned it.

Baby dust to you all and God bless!!!! :)

Cautiously THRILLED!

Posted by drivingmsdaisy
Started trying in January 2014, got pregnant in July, miscarried at 6 weeks. Started trying again. This was cycle 9 - got my positive HPT at 12 DPO.

Symptoms: very swollen nipples (especially at night), tender breasts, increasingly cold (I'm always warm but I've been freezing the last few days), yellow CM on 7 DPO, increased acne breakouts, gassy at 10 and 11 DPO.

The first three of those symptoms pretty much had me sold around 8 DPO. Especially the coldness - I'm NEVER cold. It was so weird to be freezing, especially at night. I would wear multiple layers to bed and use multiple blankets and still feel cold. Plus, my nipples have been SOOOOOO sore! Both of these symptoms are different from what I experienced during my MC earlier this year - hopefully that bodes well for a successful pregnancy this time around!

Because of the MC, I'm super cautious and trying not to get my hopes up too much. But at the same time, I'm absolutely thrilled and excited!

This feels like fate though. Due date is 07-11-2015. DH and I were married 5 years and one week prior to due date (07-11-10) and had our first date 07-11-03. July is our month!!!

My story

Posted by fannymelly
My most convincing sympton was tender breast because it's not one of my PMS symptoms.
This cycle was different from the others, I usually had 32 days cycle but for the last 4 months they got shorter until my last 2 were only 28 days long. I did track my ovulation with OPKs and also I was checking my CM. Good luck for all of you TTC.

Success after 5 miscarriages!

Posted by ericalee
I have been really hesitant to write a story in this section, for fear it would jinx my pregnancy; however, it is finally time for me to let go of the fear and just enjoy the fact that I am going to be a mom -- FINALLY!

My husband and I started trying in May 2012, following our wedding. Over the course of the next 26 months we would experience 5 losses. The furthest I ever made it was 7 weeks and most of my losses occurred around week 5. We did all of the testing out there that my OB and RE would do. I did acupuncture, took progesterone, aspirin, and prednisone as prescribed by my RE "just in case" and we still suffered losses after that. I knew this was no longer "bad luck" and the RE agreed. I did my research and was very suspicious my immune system had something to do with it, so with the support of all my doctors I set up an appt (3.5 mo wait - yikes!)with Dr. Kwak-Kim, a reproductive immunologist, in Chicago.

We ended up getting in 3 weeks early due to a cancellation and when I went for my appt I was about to ovulate. I had expected them to tell me that I would need to wait until I had been on their treatment for a while before we could try, but they told us to give it a go and shock of all shocks -- IT WORKED. On 10DPO I tested with FMU (although very diluted because I was up peeing all night from the prednisone) and it was a BFN. I was bummed, but didn't really expect to get pregnant. I couldn't stop my addiction for POAS there though -- I tested again once I had a 3 hr hold and HOLY CRAP -faint line. I immediately called the clinic then went to my OB's office for a beta.

The next few weeks I was extremely stressed. Between not hearing back very quickly from the doc's office in Chicago about new meds and a beta that didn't double... I was prepared to miscarry again. BUT I didn't. I went to Chicago for my 6w ultrasound and there was a heartbeat!! and again at 7w, 8w, 9w, etc... I was BLOWN AWAY.

I am happy to report that I am now 16 weeks pregnant and everything looks GREAT. Because of my immune system issues I am taking lovenox, prednisone, and receiving IVIG infusions. I honestly don't think I would be where I am without the help of Dr. KK and her amazing staff. It definitely wasn't an easy road to get where I am today and there are days when I am so tired of injecting myself or taking pills or driving 5+ hours round trip each week to get infusions that it does get to me. But even on those tough days I remember that it will all be worth it in the end. We are going to have our miracle baby. :)

I would also like to tell everyone that just because you do not have symptoms during your TWW it does NOT mean you're not pregnant because the ONLY symptom I had was tender boobs, which I have when I get my period anyway. I never had IB or cramps associated with implantation. I also did not have any of the early pregnancy symptoms they tell you about either. There have been 3 days where I felt like I had a hangover. where my stomach just felt sour. But I would eat something and then it would be fine. This also wasn't until like 10 weeks along! I never had a stitch of morning sickness, no super sensitive sense of smell, no metal taste in my mouth, no pronounced veins, no bleeding gums, etc. etc. etc. I convinced myself because I didn't have these symptoms that clearly I was miscarrying. My poor husband. He played the role of a therapist a lot. So don't count yourself out if you don't have a lot of symptoms!

To everyone still trying -- you can do it! Don't give up! When you're sick of the planned intercourse, meds, temps, etc etc etc... don't give up hope! It'll happen. It might not be the "we had too much fun one time and had unprotected sex and OMG I'm pregnant" story, but it doesn't matter if you timed it perfectly, it took 1 month or 30 months, if the baby was conceived in a lab or your bed... the end result will be the same â?? a baby!! :)
