Conceived 7 weeks after Mirena IUD removed!

Posted by JAMM-Mommy
Hubby and I have two beautiful children. I had the Mirena IUD placed after my youngest was born. April 26, 2013 we decided to have it removed and decided to start trying to conceive right away. I had a bunch of weird "pregnancy like" symptoms that I now contribute from coming off Mirena. I have had one period since my IUD removal on 6/2 and conceived after that first cycle.

I didn't record my symptoms by DPO this month but I remember around 8 dpo I started having pains and my cervix seemed to be sore. I was also experiencing a lot of pressure down there. I tested 9 dpo with a BFN.

Around 11 dpo I started feeling a little off in the morning. I never threw up but I felt queezy until I would eat breakfast. I tested again at 12 dpo with another BFN. At this point I felt totally out.

At 13/14 dpo I noticed my gums were feeling swollen and hurt to brush and I was having pains in my boobs towards my arm pits. I was helpful but feeling like I was probably making these symptoms up or they were indicators that my period would be starting soon.

On 15 dpo, June 30th, my son's 3rd birthday, I decided to take another test fully expecting another BFN...but to my surprise a pretty strong BFP!! I was hysterical! I cried for a good 5 minutes before I could tell my husband. Just overjoyed!!

I had a doctor confirm my pregnancy the next day. My first ultrasound and prenatal appointment is in a couple weeks! YAY!!

Pregnant on first cycle trying!!

Posted by JJolene710
I found on 10DPO in the evening with a digital test that we are expecting :) Took an FRER today (the next morning) and was so happy to see the 2nd line.
My biggest symptom was sore/swollen BBs starting the evening of 6DPO. I also had super bad AF like cramps/backache on the evening of 5DPO (implantation). I also was super tired 8-10DPO, taking naps even though that very unusual for me. Also, I have been waking up religiously at 5am for 3-4 days now, very odd for me. Frequent urination started on 10DPO.
This was our very first cycle officially TTC. It was my 3rd cycle off the BCP. I read 'Taking Charge of your Fertility' and charted my BBT, CM, and CP.
I had long cycles due to getting off the pill and didn't ovulate until CD25. We bedded on CD 19, 21, 22, 25, and 27 within the sort of fertile range. On all those times, we also used Preseed and I wore a softcup for 12 hours after.
Something must have done the trick!
Just hoping this little one is sticky :D I'm due March 14, 2014!

My very first BFP!!

Posted by badspeller
My husband and I are both 32 and have been actively TTC for about 8 months, (more passively for a couple of years) and I was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen. But is has!!!

This month I started FertileAid for Women, not sure if that had enough time to really influence things.

My husband has been taking FertileAid for men for a few months now and I think that helped for sure.

We've been using preeseed for several months and love it.

I cut out coffee and soy, and try to eat organic as much as possible.

But the big change that I think made the difference is yoga. I went to a fertility massage and was told that I was both "tight and weak" and that I needed to strengthen my pelvic floor muscles. Her suggestion was pelvic floor exercises and yoga, and after just 2 months I got my BFP. I also highly recommend fertility massage, it feels awesome and couldn't hurt!

My TWW symptoms:
2dpo - sore nipples
4-8dpo-I started to get really bloated. My stomach felt like a balloon no matter what I ate. Gassy and uncomfortable
9pdo - 1. I got super nauseous a couple times.
2. I'm bloated and gassy all the time.
3. I'm exhausted.
4. My back is sore in weird little spots.
5. My boobs are not sore and they usually are at this point in my cycle
6. I'm not very hungry and I'm usually starving during PMS
7. I'm so thirsty.
8. I have mild cramps.
11pdo - got worried because all symptoms disappeared and I felt crampy, BFN
12dpo - possible SUPER faint positive, took a nap (which I never do), was crying at everything
13dpo - another too hard to tell faint line, nap and little pokey cramps
14dpo - missed my period, took a nap, feeling pregnant, BFN
15dpo- very clear BFP!

Feeling overjoyed and also cautious. I hope this little bean sticks, but no matter what, getting that positive was a life-changer.

Thanks to everyone in this community, sending my love and prayers to you all!

One year wedding anniversary and BFP

Posted by ausarsma
We have been trying since we got married a year ago 6.24.2012. We had one ectopic and one miscarriage, and finally this month on 13 DPO I got a faint BFP! I've been have weird dreams, mild cramping, and sore boobs. I was hoping it wasn't all in my head, especially since I've felt similar symptoms before with BFN. I tested on 9 DPO and got a BFN so was especially excited to get a BFP the day after my one year wedding anniversary. Here's to hoping and praying this little one sticks!
