TTC After Miscarriage

Posted by MrsRev
My husband and I had been TTC for 5 months when we first got pregnant, but this sadly resulted in a 6 week miscarriage. We had 1 month off - was a really odd long cycle anyway, and then the next cycle we tried again.

We were desperate for a BFP so decided to try the sperm meets egg plan (off the pregnancy loss website) and used Clearblue digital OPKs. I had my positive OPK on cd 16, and then I got my BFP 11 dpo, so cd 27. Cannot believe it worked so well. I am now coming up to the same date I had my last miscarriage and am very anxious. Really hope this one sticks!!

First Baby, 13 Weeks Pregnant!

Posted by
After a couple months of TTC, we got our positive! We BD'd 1x week 1, 1x week 2, and then 1 day before OPK +, and then BD'd through my ovulation days, and one day after for good measure.

0-5 DPO: No symptoms
6 DPO: Heaviness/Fullness, Mild/Dull Cramps, Ovary Pain, Pulling/Pinching, Achy Legs or Hips, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Frequent Urination (other than more prominent ovary pain, it all felt on cue for PMS)
7 DPO: Bloating, Mild/Dull Cramps, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Tender Breasts, Acne Breakout (all on cue for PMS)
8 DPO: Mild/Dull Cramps, Twinges, Breasts Feel Heavy or Full, Tender Breasts, Tingling Breasts (all on cue for PMS, except for tingling breasts felt different)
9 DPO: Mild/Dull Cramps, Pulling/Pinching, Sharp/Stabbing Pains, Tender Breasts, Tingling Breasts, Sore Throat (sharp/stabbing "pains" were not typical PMS symptoms)

10 DPO: Couldn't sleep, decided to take a HPT test at 4 AM, and after 10-20 seconds saw nothing so I set it down and rested my back. Woke up at 7 AM, still in pain, went to the bathroom and looked at my HPT test had a SUPER FAINT line...immediately started crying, and in total shock. Took more tests through out the day, the line got a tad bit darker.
11-14 DPO: Still felt all PMS symptoms, got a darker line every day. Confirmed at Doctors that I was officially pregnant!

Conception Aids: Preseed lubricant, soft cup (during ovulation), elevated body (I have a very tilted uterus), green tea daily, prenatal vitamins (for 4 months), OPKs (both first response and clear blue digital). My cycles typically range from 28-33 days, so I always tested OPK on CD 11-19, twice a day (late morning and evening)!

I am currently 13 weeks and going strong, although I have had a challenging pregnancy (puking, nausea 24/7, food aversion to ALL food, aversion to ALL smells/scents, horrible teeth/gum pain, constant headaches, fatigue, constipation, dizziness, feeling faint all the time, etc) I feel blessed and fortunate, with no regrets.

4 months TTC #1 - 24-day CYCLE & BFP on 14DPO

Posted by Jokare00
This month we thought we were out because I travel for work quite a bit and it seemed I would be away when I ovulated. We took it easy, BDing only every other day once my AF stopped, so day 6,8,10 and when I came back on 13.
My temp dropped on CD 10, rose just a little bit CD 11.
When I was away my temp rose significantly on CD 12. Usually I am a slow climber, so I knew something was different this month.
By 3 dpo my BBs were killing me and I felt really hot. Usually my BBs don't hurt until about 5 days before my AF shows up.
My temps were high and consistent. It was a nice looking chart from the beginning.
9dpo I had a HUGE temp dip, dropped down below my cover line. I was exhausted. When I went to bed I had some really startly implantation pain that lasted about 10 seconds. I actually shouted "ouch".
10dpo my temp was back up and has been slowly climbing. I just KNEW something was different.
11 dpo I told my husband. He was hesitant until I showed him my chart. He got really excited.
14 dpo I took a test and got my BFP within 15 seconds of setting it down.
My cycle is normally 24 days, so I tested on CD25.

Positive on 9 DPO

Posted by Zeeena
I had tried to get pregnant for 2 months with no results. Allthough I know that 2 months isn't long to be trying, I wanted to try everything I could, being 36 yrs old. So I then I used Clear Blue smiley face OPK's to find out when I was ovulating. I fell Pregnant on my second month of using them! We DTD 4 times over the fertile time, 3 times in the 4 days leading up to ovulation, and then once on the day of ovulation. I had a negative result on day 8 post ovulation, but then a positive result on day 9. I used FRER tests.
