here we go again

Posted by chickencounter
Hi! I'm 42. I think I've posted on here twice already only to go on to miscarry. After a year of trying with no luck on clomid, I decided to see a naturopath. He got my thyroid under control, and I got pregnant within 6 mos. Unfortunately I miscarried again. Now, 3 mos after miscarriage I am pregnant again (never got pregnant this quickly before)! I'm on progesterone this time, so please hope with me that it sticks this time!
Love and baby dust to everyone!!!

BFP Today! Still in shock!

Posted by Lissa84

I thought I'd share my BFP story.

My husband and I had been NTNP for 2 months, and actively trying for 5 months when we got our BFP. Though I know that really isn't long in the scheme of things, it certainly felt like forever. We are both in our 30s and were considering getting testing done next cycle as we still hadn't conceived.

At 9 DPO, I got my first very faint line on an internet cheapie, but didn't trust it as the last month I had been using a different internet cheapie brand that was giving false faint positives as it ended up being recalled.

At 10 DPO, still had faint line on ICs, but tested in the evening and it looked SLIGHTLY darker.

At 11 DPO, tested with another IC and a line began to appear within in 30 seconds, albeit faint. Took a Clear blue digital, and got: pregnant, 1-2 weeks.

Still in shock!

This cycle, here is what we did differently:

Made smoothies almost everyday which included spinach, kale, blueberries, banana, chia and flax.

I lead a fairly sedentary life due to a desk job and I'm a commuter, so this cycle, I got an exercise bike and cycled almost every morning for 30 minutes.

Stopped taking evening primrose oil and stopped using pressed (not a fan of either!).

Tried to get extra sleep.

My symptoms by DPO:
O day had ovulation pain on my left side which was unusual because I usually only have it on my right
1 - 5 DPO nothing different from any other month
6 DPO started feeling twinges, but didn't think much of it, no other symptoms
7 - 9 DPO I believe I felt the beginnings of implantation on my left side- felt like a stitch in the side and hip bones periodically ached mildly
9 DPO super emotional, my husband came home late from work and I cried because I was sure he was in an accident (very unlike me!) Also took an IC that night but it was so faint I didn't believe it
10 DPO more twinges, took and IC and still very faint line, thinking these tests are also defective like last months that were recalled
11 DPO (Today) took an IC with FMU, came out a little darker and within 30 seconds could see a line, so took a $ store one, and got a faint line, so took a clear blue digital which came back 'pregnant 1-2 weeks'! Had slight cramping/twinges left side again, felt very mild headache and BBT temp skyrocketed.

Still can't believe it's happened! We are so excited! Baby dust to all of you and you will get your BFPs, don't give up!

When I let go, it happened

Posted by letilexbébé
I know it sounds cliché but that's exactly what happened...
We tried for months and every month was a deception. We had finally decided to stop trying and we really did. We weren't even in the "we'll see how it goes" phase. We just stopped and only made love outside of my window.
Well, don't really know what happened because my ovulation was supposed to be on the 20th of July. Last time we made love before that time was July 15th, so don't ask...

On July 25th one of my friend joked and said I was pregnant. I didnt believe it at all. I even had champagne. On that same day, I had an hysteria crisis with boo. It was incredible, didnt recognize myself.
Didn't see it as a symptom.

I started getting more tired everyday until it reached exhaustion... But it was sooo hot outside I put it on the heat ( I really wasn't even thinking about being pregnant).
My boobs were hurting and that was alarming me a little... My boobs kept hurting until now.

Didn't have any food craving and didn't have any frequent urination.
So I thought I was out.
Yesterday, my temperature was so high that I decided to buy a pregnancy test.

Did it this morning and it was positive.
Didn't want to believe it so went and bought another one which was positive too :)))

The difference between all the other times?
I stopped thinking about it...

Wish you good luck ladies...

47 and I can't believe it! I am pregnant, naturally

Posted by Super_sally888
Well, it seems I am pregnant! And it is still very early days. In fact my period isn't even due until Sunday (3 days from now).

I am still wrapping my head around the idea. Though if it will proceed normally remains to be seen.

Partner and I were 'trying', however, I am nearly 47 and partner is nearly 55. We have been 'trying' for about 5 years... and well I really didn't believe that my ancient eggs and his grotty old sperm could actually produce anything.... considering nothing has stuck in the cobwebbed caverns in the past 5 years.

I am diabetic and on insulin: I knew something was amiss immediately, when insulin requirements dropped to nearly 0 for about 2 weeks. Those 2 weeks ended 2 days ago, and this is now the 3rd day of rapidly escalating insulin doses. Basal is still low, but i:c ratio is high (I haven't quite worked it out yet; but l/c foods that didn't need insulin before now certainly do).

I saw high risk obe yesterday (he is in my social group and told me to come in straight away). When he heard my dates, he said it was too early to get a positive (CD25) result, even less believing when I told him I'd been getting positives starting 5 days earlier. Anyway, he asked me to retake a test in his office and voila, positive. He just laughed!!! Could not believe it!! Kept saying that it is so unusually to be positive this early, and maybe it is twins. He told me that his oldest ever delivery was a woman aged 48, and that was 20 years ago. I will be 47 if and when this one arrives. Due date is estimated at 11 April 2018.

I also did a beta test yesterday and results were 295. Considering that this is early and a positive is 25 or higher, this means I most certainly am! Tomorrow is a repeat beta, and that result will tell us if this is viable or not.

No symptoms at all until about 5 days ago (in fact the lack of symptoms was in itself unusual - usually I have lots of twinges and pangs etc). IN the past few days have been having really uncomfortable low back and feeling of pressure in lower abdomen now. Occasional twinges of nausea.

So I am taking Vitamin C, vitamin E, omega 3, baby aspirin, progesterone, as well as methyl folate and a few other general vitamins.

I am eating low carb / keto and have been pretty strict the last 6 months, including intermittent fasting. I have been exercising regularly doing HIIT. The Obe told me I can continue doing everything I have been doing diet and exercise wise for now. He totally supports keto diet for those wanting to get and who are pregnant.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Want this or not want this. I will leave this in God's hands. Surely is going to be a ride and a half.

I will update what happens with the beta tomorrow.

I am planning on refusing dating ultrasound. I KNOW the dates. May consider a basic u/s at 20 weeks..... I want to limit u/s expose. This is already an old egg, and I don't want to apply any more stress to it than absolutely necessary.

BFP 14 dpo, implantation pinch, hoping for a sticky bean!

Posted by sunnyflower
Hi everyone, these stories helped me so much during our TTC journey so like many of you I wanted to contribute. We started trying around a year ago but during that time, my husband and I were living in different states so he would have to fly back and forth during my ovulation time. Needless to say, this didn't work well and after trying 6 or 7 times, we gave up. I am 33 and my husband is 41 so I started to worry that something was wrong. We were going to try one more time since I moved in with him a month ago and if we weren't successful, we were going to see what our options were for IUI, etc. Over the past year, my husband also started exercising more and eating right which I've tended to do for the past few years. This cycle started on 6/29/17. I didn't go crazy with symptom tracking because I've felt every symptom under the sun in prior unsuccessful cycles, gotten my hopes up and then crash!

CD 1-8: nothing that stands out, I didn't track my BBT
CD 9: started OPK tracking on CD 9.
CD 11: BD
CD 13: Positive OPK in the afternoon, EWCM, BD
CD 14: Assuming ovulation day, EWCM, BD
1-9 dpo: intermittently full or sore breasts which I've had with other unsuccessful cycles
10 dpo: I was settling down to sleep and felt a sharp stabbing pain just for a few seconds in my right lower abdomen which could have been implantation. This was so different from any other cycle. I actually sat up part way and said ow. I doubt I would have felt it if I had been asleep.
11 dpo: intermittently full or sore breasts still, whitish CM
12 dpo: my cycle ranges from 24-28 days so I was watching for spotting before AF which sometimes I get. There was none. I also woke up at around 4-5 am and couldn't get back to sleep - usually I sleep like a baby!
13 dpo: getting my hopes up because usually I spot a little bit by now and there still wasn't any. Again, I had insomnia - I think I woke up around 2:30 am and stayed awake for a couple hours.
14 dpo: Still no AF!! This is the latest I would have ever gone in the past so my hopes are up. The reason I didn't do POAS checks yet is because when I did in the past, starting at 11 dpo, every negative felt like a slap in the face. I decided to delay it as long as possible since then and just wait for AF. FRER's second line popped up right away, within a few seconds! Clearblue digital took some time and said pregnant!! :) I put these in a little box and gave it to my husband along with a card that said congrats, you're going to be a dad! He was shocked and kept asking if this was real since like me, he started to think it wasn't going to happen without help.

We are so happy and hoping for a very sticky, healthy bean. My heart goes out to all of you that are TTC, it can be a very difficult journey and a heart wrenching roller coaster. I'm usually so calm and it made me crazy, obsessive and emotional. I have so much more respect for those who have gone through infertility issues or took a longer time to conceive. Baby dust to all! Please keep your head up and keep going!!
