I didn't know about this site when I was ttc so here's my story about my BFP! DH and I decided to start trying in October 2011. We did the BD every day for 10-12 days(well, minus one night in between somewhere) after my period ended. That's probably about day 4 of my cycle to day 16. I have a shorter cycle, I having been tracking it my entire reproductive life (first period started september 28th at night, 1998...lmao). Anyway, we bd even though my brother was living with us(boo-urns), and successfully conceived that first month. Now, I want to make it very clear, this is not typical, but it's just the way the cards fell for us.
When I tested I bought 6 dollarama HPT tests. I decided to take a test early, because lets be honest, who on earth waits until they miss their period? I took the test on day 24 and got a very faint BFP. I took a second test and also got a faint BFP. I was looking at the tests and didn't really believe what I was seeing. I showed DH and he didn't see anything and thought I was nuts. My brother who lived with us came home and looked at the tests and confirmed what I thought, that there were lines on them. DH thought he'd take a test as a "control" or w/e, and it was white as white. A third test that night confirmed that yes, bfp. Here's the funny part, I took the last two dollarama (pro-care) tests in the morning with fmu and got negatives. I went to shoppers and bought a FRER and peed on it immediately when I got home, and boom, BFP! So, that's my story, and I have my amazing almost 8 month old, whom I really think needs a sibling lol.

BFP after 13 months of trying with no fertility issues!

Posted by Madeline
I'm not here to tell you to "Just relax" or "It will happen when it's meant to" or my favorite "Stop trying and it will happen" God I hated hearing those things. Don't listen to them, I've been there too and I know how much they hurt. But I do want to give you some advice:

Ladies PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop stalking this site for symptoms lol. I'm just kidding but I am speaking from my own experience here. I obsessed every month for 13 months and compared my symptoms to all of the BFP stories on here and guess what???? When I actually fell PREGNANT I had no clue. There were no symptoms; no sore boobs, no metallic taste in my mouth, no food aversions, no CM, no nausea, no headaches, etc. (I even made an appointment with my doctor for Clomid). I realized that every woman is different and our bodies react differently to pregnancy. So please please please just because your symptoms don't sync with let's say "Mary's" it doesn't mean you are NOT pregnant. I think I had more symptoms all of the other months than 2 weeks ago lol.

But I will be honest with you, I am 5 weeks now and my nipples just started to feel sore and I feel a lot of stretching/gassy/cramps (exactly like period cramps). So yes you probably will get some symptoms but once again DO NOT compare yours to mine because you might be different. Ok so here is the rundown:

- O day I felt some tingling but I felt that before and was not pregnant
- 1-9 DPO no symptoms except I felt rundown and I couldn't finish my exercises (started 5dpo and on)
- I tested at 9 DPO in the evening with a cheapie and saw the faintest line.
- 10 DPO tested with digital and got "Pregnant 1-2"

Best of luck ladies and don't ever give up. Baby dust to you all <3

Happened so quickly! Surprised :)

Posted by Kendall
My husband and I have been married for 3 years on the 20 March. We are both 26.
I went off birth control last year April, but then we decided we actually werent ready and still wanted to travel etc. So we had to use other forms of contraception.

Anyway, beginning of January we decided it was now time!
In January nothing happened (although we didnt really try that hard at all)
But Feb we gave it a proper "bash" :)

Then on Tuesday, one day after AF was due i took a hpt and there was a faint pink second line, showed DH but he wasnt too convinced and didnt want to get his hopes up, so he went out and bought me the Clearblue digital hpt and it came up PREGNANT, 2 - 3 weeks! then went for blood tests the same day and they came back positive.

We are still quite stunned and it hasnt really sunken in yet. i must be honest and say that neither of us expected it to happen as quickly as it did. Yet we are both thrilled.

Hoping that all goes well with the pregnancy!

I didnt keep accurate records of the symptoms i was feeling during the tww, but i experienced the following:
Very sore nipples
Bloated
Gassy
Night sweats
Food aversion (to mushrooms! lol)
Feeling very uncomfortable in my lower uterus
Lower back pain
Moments of feeling very hot, where temp must have increased

Many of these symtoms are exactly the same as pms, however i did have a strange "feeling" that this time something was different.

Good luck to all you ladies!! and i honestly think stressing makes it take longer, so dont even expect it to happen, and thats probably when it will!

Emergen-C and Preseed!

Posted by babymama11
My husband and I got married in November and decided to take out my Mirena in January and TTC. My Mirena was removed on Jan 2, and I had withdrawal bleeding and I think a short period a couple of days after removal. Had a positive OPK in January, but did not conceive.

My husband had expressed concern that we might have a hard time conceiving, as he had never had any "scares" before he was with me (he does have one child, but thought we'd have some difficulty - plus we are in our 30s). We did not have an SA done. However, I did A LOT of research on fertility products. I first looked at the ingredients of FertilAid (for Men and Women), and other pills. Then, I looked at some actual scientific research and studies (journals published by PhDs on education (.edu)l and .gov websites -very reliable sources). It seemed the main things that could help count, morphology and motility were Vitamin C, B-complex vitamins and Zinc. So, I had the hubby take two Emergen-C packets a day and an extra 50mg zinc pill. We also used preseed this cycle for the first time. Something worked! Not sure which, but maybe a combination :)

This cycle, I got a positive OPK on CD 11 - this was cool because "11" is our number. I imagined finding out I was pregnant at 11DPO :) Well - at 11 DPO (11 days after positive OPK - not sure when I really O'd because I never noticed any EWCM), I got my first faint positive on a Wondfo. Then, I tested on every other brand in the house and got positives on all of them. Today, I got positive results on an FRER, EPT digital and CBE digital. It still hasn't really sunk in yet, but I am sooo happy!

Lots of baby dust and good luck to all of you ladies TTC!
