BFP Cycle #2 - Baby #2

Posted by kassandrawoh
I'm so excited to annouce that I am expecting baby #2. Here's hoping that I have a happy pregnancy and a healthy, sticky bean. I can't wait to meet this baby in August 2016!

Here's my cycle story...

The first day of my last period was 11/21/2015. During my fertile week my hubby and I BDed on CD 13, 14, 16 & 17. This was also the first month we used Pre-Seed. I'd definitely give it two thumbs up. Great stuff! It felt so natural... and I'm now 4 weeks pregnant. I ovulated on CD 17. I know this because I also use OPKs.

DPO Symptoms -

1—5 DPO: nothing out of the ordinary.
6 DPO: pinch/poking "cramp" on right side of uterus. This was my first sign that I may be implanting. I didn't have any spotting.
7 DPO: continued to have the same odd, almost pin-like poking on my right side (off and on).
8 DPO: BFN, not surprised it was still early. I'm POAS addict. ;-) I'm beginning to feel nausea when hungry, hot flashes, acne breakout, extreme fatigue and hormonal (cried while watching TV). :-)
9 DPO: BFN, same symptoms as above.
10 DPO: same symptoms as 8 and 9 dpo, but now fighting a mild headache. Got a VERY faint line that evening on a Clinical Guard internet cheapie. I have NEVER got a stitch of a line when not pregnant, so I knew something was up.
11 DPO: I continued to get faint lines on ICs. Same symptoms. Fought a mild headache. Got a faint line on a dollar store brand HPT. BFN on Clearblue digital.
12 DPO: Same symptoms. Still a BFN on CB digi. BFPs on internet cheapies. Lines are slowly getting darker, more visible. My hubby could finally see it. ;-) I got really hungry (empty stomach pains) 11:30 at night and had to get a snack. This is definitely not normal.
13 DPO (TODAY): Same symptoms, no headache yet. Yet again, BFN on Clearblue digi. BFP on pink dye FRER and my internet cheapie. Seeing line progression.

My period is due on 12/22/2015. My cycles are usually 31 days long. I'm obviously pregnant, but don't have a high enough HcG level to trigger a digital HPT. I've also heard Clearblue digitals are not very sensitive. I'm hoping to announce to grandparents on Christmas day. So excited! My EDD is August 27th-29th (depends on what day I use. LMP would be 11/21. Ovulation was 12/7). My hubby have the same birthday (August 28th), so there's a big possibility this baby could have the same birthday too! Kinda cool!

BABY DUST TO ALL! :-)

DONT GIVE UP AFTER BC

Posted by Minalona
I came off BC round about July 2015, and we have been TTC since then. I have tried everything but nothing really worked. From OPK kits to temping to Robitussin. Every cycle I would have the same pms symptoms and would think they were pregnancy symptoms. The one cycle I was actually preggo I had pms symptoms. I think my first signs was that my viens were more visible on my hands, and I was so tired. Other than that I didn't feel any different....... After coming off BC it usually takes some women a little to get preggo, but do not give up keep trying, and BD a lot.

Only takes 1 time

DH and I had been thinking about trying for a couple months. I started tracking my cycles in May and stalking this site even though we weren't trying yet. Finally on August 19th we decided it was time. Since I had been tracking I knew I would be Ovulating on the 21st of August. With differing work schedules, August 20th was our one and only chance for the month. 10 days later I got my BFP at 9dpo. I couldn't believe how lucky we had gotten!

My Symptoms by DPO were

1dpo- nothing
2dpo- twinges on the right side and bloating
3dpo- Sleepy, bloating, and gassy.
4dpo- Bloating has all but gone away, still gassy, and fighting a headache all day-very unusual for me
5dpo- tired still, but I blamed this on switching to nights this same week
6dpo- nothing really to report today
7dpo- bloating is back, along with a couple of dizzy spells and this point I'm thinking I need to go get some test
8dpo- bloating, headache, and cramping.. maybe I wont need those test after all
9dpo- Soo Gassy!! and a little nausea. couldn't wait any longer and took a test at about 11pm with no hold. Got the faintest pink line on FRER!
10dpo- POAS FMU even darker pink line!


Continued with the Gas and Nausea for the next couple weeks along with some pretty bad cramping which was scary!


Now I'm 17 weeks 6 days and looking forward to finding out if my intuition about having a baby girl is right in just 5 days!

Good Luck and Baby Dust to everyone!!

My BFP!

Posted by peachpretty
DH & I decided in 2013 that we were ready to have another child. Our DS was then 8 years old. We tried here and there but didn't take it serious at all. When we turned 29 was when I started to get more serious. I went out and bought OPK's, started tracking cycles and ovulation. That is when I found this site! That was back in March of 2015. We really tried March, April, May & June but nothing. By July I was frustrated and just had to stop to keep my sanity. July & August nothing just kicked back and enjoyed summer. Stayed off this site except for entering cycle dates. September came around and I was determined! Heartbroken for two months but kept at it. October 27 my cycle began. AF lasted about 7 days. We BD on cycle day 12 & 13. I ovulated on cycle day 14. The tww was not bad at all. I was focused on other things and tried not to think about if I was having symptoms. AF was due the day before Thanksgiving. Well that day I had spotted very very light pinkish brown. I thought for sure AF was coming. I was bummed all evening. By the end of the next day still no AF. That's when I knew something was different. I did not want to test at all. Afraid of a negative. So the waiting game began. By the weekend still nothing. I did have very sore nips and veiny, tender breasts. A new week started and I just went about my days working and what not. By that time I was looking for symptoms. Still did not test. I made the decision to wait until 9 days after my missed period to test. The day finally came! I woke up at 5:00 a.m. to test! I used the First Response Test & Confirm stick. Laid it on the counter and left the room for exactly 3 minutes. When I came back there it was 2 lines! The test line was darker than the control. I downloaded the What to Expect app and according to it I am 6 weeks! (your pregnancy starts the first day of your cycle) I am starting to feel slightly sick. The thought of food grosses me out. I get headaches if I don't get enough sleep and breasts still hurt daily. Baby dust to all!

Just an FYI
Things that I did while trying to conceive:
Used Clearblue Digital Ovulation Tests
Stopped using tampons almost a year ago
Stopped reading the TTC journals on this site. (I would drive myself crazy comparing myself to others)
I think that was about it. Hope this helps
