BFP after 16 Months TTCing

Posted by bella187
I am so happy to be finally posting my story.
Every month I was always waiting for symptoms or anything that would make me think I was pregnant but nothing ever happened.

This month was so different, I brought some clear blue ovulation sticks as I had heard they are good at detecting ovulation.

I decided to take one to try it out but I was on cd 26, it came up with a smiley face instantly and I thought it was weird that I would be ovulating then. I did some research and could see that the tests are pretty accurate, the only other reason for a smiley could be early pregnancy.

I waited until the evening when I got home from work & took a cheap test. My partner & I could see a really faint line so I did another and it looked slightly darker.

I went and brought a clear blue digital & to our surprise I was pregnant 1-2 weeks.

All those months of obsessing and going crazy doing loads of tests waiting for that BFP & the month I relaxed more it happened.

We are so over the moon, it still hasn't suck in.

I wish lots of luck to those trying, it is such a difficult thing to go through & playing the waiting game is hard.

Trying for 3.5 years post Mirena removal

Posted by heybaby458
We have been trying to get pregnant for 3.5 years since I had my Mirena removed. Honestly I thought the Mirena messed me up. I saw the commercials on TV warning women and had my Mirena removed right away, but I had it for 5 years. I am 34 and my boyfriend is 32. We aren't getting any younger and my BF has no kids. I have two previous from my first marriage.
We tried clomid for the last 3 months but this month I took a break. I used ovulation tests which never showed positive this month (I think I ovulated early). I also used preseed, softcups, and Mucinex.
We timed sex every other day so cover our bases since we didn't know I ovulated.
My symptoms weren't overwhelming until the baby implanted. I felt fine but the day I had implantation I had cramping and then about two days later was very sick with morning sickness. I took a test on 9DPO that was negative but I was really sick.
I took an ovulation test on 10DPO and it was super positive. I thought that was kinda weird and have heard that some women get a positive ovulation test when they are pregnant so I took another test on 10DPO in the afternoon and it came up positive. I use the internet cheapie tests to test frequently but I have never had a positive on one of those if I wasn't pregnant. When I saw 2 lines I had my mom go out and get me a digi test which came back "pregnant".
I'm sick and tired. I cannot stand the smell of smoke or cigarettes even though I used to smoke. Even some food smells are really overwhelming.
I've heard that using the Mirena might make miscarriage more likely, but I am trying to be positive. I haven't been pregnant in over 8 years and am super excited for my BF to become a father.

Miracle Baby

Posted by dwhite92
My husband and I tried for 3 long years with no luck. After seeing a specialist I was told I was not ovulating but that they didn't know why. We were scheduled to start fertility treatments but I ended up getting really sick and was in and out of the hospital for the better part of a year. It was so disheartening to know I might not ever be able to conceive and that there was no known reason. Trying to put it behind me as best as I could, I focused more on getting myself back healthy and then maybe trying again. The problem was, due to being sick for so long AF came less and less. We accepted the fact that kids were not an option right now and tried our best to look to the future, to happier times. But then..a miracle! I can't honestly say I was tracking my cycles anymore since it just hurt too much emotionally so imagine my surprise when all of a sudden our two dogs started acting strange around me! I had been having other symptoms but didn't really put two and two together until my husband's dog who never usually had anything to do with me laid his head on my stomach and went to sleep. On a hunch I decided to take a test and nearly died as it turned positive instantly! Still in disbelief I made an appointment to confirm the next day and was told that I was indeed pregnant and from the blood work was actually 6 weeks! Tomorrow is my first ultrasound where we will find out for sure excactly how far along as well as a due date. This truly is a miracle that I thank God for every day!

Symptoms so far:

1 week before testing- bad headaches, mild cramping off and on, sore bb's
Test week- same as well as terrible bloating and morning (all day!) sickness
(Now) 1-2 weeks after testing- same plus heart burn and frequent urination

Good luck to all the moms and ttc ladies out there! Anything is possible!

I've been reading these stories here for months now and I'm so happy to be posting my own. I feel so blessed to be expecting. We finally got the timing right! I stared prenatal vitamins 3 months before we started ttc. I get regular exercise & I eat a well balanced organic diet. Here is what I experienced. I hope this helps!

Regular 26-28 day cycles:
CD- 7-8 neg opk
CD 9-10 dtd (ovulation cramps started on day 10) opk getting darker.
CD 11-ovulation (positive opk)
1dpo- normal
2- cramps & bloating. Diarrhea only in the morning (weird).
3dpo- bloated, cramps, heartburn, cm still creamy/stretchy. Feeling weird.
4-5dpo- bloated, gassy, diarrhea in morning again, heaviness in my uterus, cramps not like AF.
6dpo-diarrhea in morning only AGAIN, bloated, crampy, 3 short 2sec shocks on left side pelvic region. Felt strange. Exhausted. Implantation?
7dpo- heaviness in uterus. Bloated, pressure in tummy, pulling feeling, crampy. Stabby pain but not really painful in left side. LOTS of milky in color but watery cm.
8dpo- very watery cm like actual water, sensations on left side of uterus and sharp quick sensation in middle.
9dpo- watery cm kinda ew. Crampy. Caved & tested...BFP!!!!

3 MC and two years since our last loss, BFP with IUI #1!!!!

Posted by notmarvin
I keep telling myself that there is nothing I can do to change the outcome of this pregnancy so I'm just going to submit my story instead of waiting until the 'right time'. It took about 7 months working with my RE before I could even do my first cycle of treatment. I had surgery and lost my right Tube and ovary and had a cancer scare. Every test imaginable and all normal. I just don't ovulate that well. DH is "excellent" We started with femara, didn't work. Then Femara and Gonal f. Didn't work. Upped the Gonal, didn't work. New RE and that was the ticket. High dose Gonal f 225 only.

CD 7: 15mm, 13mm, 10mm and triple stripe lining at 11

CD 10: 20mm, 16mm, 13mm Lining perfect. Nurse thinks I could pop all three in time for IUI
Trigger using Pregnyl. Big red welt and bruising from that one. Nips have been hands off for days. Had my first dream ever of a BFP. Feeling VERY confident about this.

CD 12 IUI: 30 million 84% motility, E2 800???? can't remember. Maybe 3-4 follies. IUI done. TWW begins, Is it too soon for pregnancy symptoms? ROFL

8 DPIUI cramps non stop. Probably due to P. Bbs hurt so bad. They have hurt about -4DPO. Started with the nips then the last few days has worked to include the entire area. Ouch. Once again, prob the P. Holy blue veins!

9 DPIUI: 11 DPT 9 DPO +HPT smu diluted but as dark as last months 7 DPO +HPT FMU. Last months 9 dpo 11 DPT was a squinter. Piggy backing hCG??? Maybe. Bbs: ay caramba!!! Time will tell if this is real. Very interesting science experiment either way.

11 DPO pm: Wondfo BFP and double as dark as 9 DPO. I think this is the real deal! Calling doc asap for Beta! Wow I am trying to keep cool. OMG. only true symptoms that are different this month is hot flashes and heartburn.

14 DPO beta 190! Exhausted! Morning sickness that lasts the first half of the day and not much of an appetite. Praying and staying positive that beta 2 will be perfect and this will be our take home rainbow baby.

The emotional roller coaster of infertility is hell. The toll that treatments take on your body and spirit is another kind of hell. It will be worth it. I think I am very lucky that the first IUI worked. I will never have that moment of joy when I can plan a cute surprise BFP reveal to DH and experience the ignorant joy that comes with never experiencing a loss and plan for a baby the minute I see that BFP. I can only be realistic and hope for the best. I want give my love and support to all the women struggling with infertility. Stay strong and keep the end goal in mind. Find joy in the little victories.
