Posted by staceyj613
I've been coming to this site on and off for the past 5 years TTC.  I PROMISED myself I would post a story when I finally got my BFP & here I am! First of all, I just want to say DO NOT listen to the people who tell you "oh, just relax and it will happen!".  That is BS.  There may be a medical reason you are not getting pregnant.  Try for 1 year and then go see a Reproductive Endocrinologist.  And if you don't like that doctor, change to a different one.  The cycle that finally worked for us was the 5th fresh IVF.  We had PGD testing done and ended up with 3 normal embryos.  We transferred two girls, a 6AB & a 6BB.  Not sure if we are having one or two, but my 1st beta was 1109 at 20DPO.  I really want my story to inspire and give hope to girls out there.  Be proactive, don't wait around for it to happen. It WILL happen sooner or later you just may need a little help! My symptoms were that I was extremely bloated, emotional, cranky, cramps on & off, Vivid dreams, headaches, I just "felt" pregnant (I have a 9 yr old son from previous marriage).  My latest symptom is frequent urination! I cannot go throughout the night without waking up to pee & that never happens to me.  Baby Dust to ALL of you TTC.  I truly hope & pray you get your BFP soon!! xoxo

My husband and i have tried for a baby for over 1.5 years and it was so physically and emotionally exhausting! <3 We finally sealed help (i wish i would have went sooner)
I did two months at ISIS regional fertility clinic in Oakville. They were amazing! Did our investigative cycle i was diagnosed with irregular period lengths and and had crappy quality eggs at only 23 years old.

The following month which was this cycle. They put me on 50mg of CLOMID and gave me a trigger shot that induced by ovulation. I finally got my BFP!!! I Honestly think I'm still in shock as I still pee on a stick every day! like i think its going to go negative as I'm just so used to not being pregnant ! just wanted to share my story! that if your trying and you are going crazy! have hope and seek help! it is not expensive and some of it is covered under ohio i paid a total of maybe 350.00 for my medications etc.

Goodluck xoxox

Still in shock

Posted by Herewegoagain4
After months of analyzing every symptom and squinter of a line I finally got my bfp! For a year I counted planned and went POAS crazy! I finally gave up! I didn't even test this cycle till I was a day late. 15 dpo. Strong positive in the afternoon with no hold. Just wanted to share my symptoms.
9 dpo. Breast tenderness began
10 dpo. Mild cramps breasts hurt, vivid dreams
11 dpo. Breasts hurt, af like cramps, vivid dreams
12 dpo. Same as above except I wiped some blood ( tmi)
13 dpo. Same as above and had a spot of brown blood
14 dpo. Breasts and nipples hurt and huge, af like cramps and miss my period
15 dpo. Still no af and bfp in the afternoon.

Every cycle previously I had cramps and breast tenderness and swelling, also most the other symptoms listed. The only difference with this cycle was the spot of blood on 12 and 13 dpo ( implantation I suppose)
Hang in there ladies and I suppose it doesn't help to say relax but I really believe that's what did it for me. :) GL and lots of sticky baby dust!!!!!!

Conceived First month TTC with Endometriosis!

Posted by sayClaire_Nikko14
With my son it took 2 years, he was born 12/31/13.. 3 months post par-tum i began to try for #2 because i thought it was going to take just as long or even longer.

I was so wrong. First month. I am so surprised, it is so crazy. I didn't do anything besides BD & watch my CM when checking my cervix every now and then.

My early signs were:
Losing my hair (had this with my son too!)
my cervix went sideways and the opening was pressed against my vaginal wall near my back. (had this with my son too!)

If you go to my countdown page and read my journals you will see how depressed i became. I really thought i was out, it made me realize what i was in for... 2 years again.

Good luck to you all, you are in my thoughts.

BFP 8 DPO!!! :)

Posted by panky22
I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis at age 16. i had a laparoscopy at 17 when they discovered i have one completely blocked tube, hormone shots and DEPO shot until i was 20 to reduce the pain. i was always told by my doctors that it was going to be difficult to conceive, and that most likely id have to see a fertility specialist.

I had gotten pregnant in november of 2013 with a positive HPT 9 DPO after only 2 months of trying and unfortunately miscarried and had to have a D&C December 10th 2013. I got my first period exactly 28 days from D&C exactly on time as always and then started trying immediately the month of January after getting the ok from my doctor.

I then began to feel something wasn't right, since it was taking longer than it did before to get pregnant again, and my period seemed to become irregular (ranging from 29-31 days, which has never ever happened) and ovulation wasn't occurring on the same day (CD 14) as it use to before my miscarriage. I then began to do research and made many changes in the month of april. I changed my diet to follow this website ( http://www.parenting.com/article/what-eat-conceive ) , began to exercise, quit drinking caffeine, took prenatal vitamins, drank a glass of grapefruit juice orange juice and apple cider vinegar every single day, I used digital OPK's, did BBT (which pinpointed ovulation exactly) and tried acupuncture. I also ordered a bottle of fertile cm pills but i only took it for about 3 days after I researched the reviews I decided to stop taking it because some of the people who've taken it reported symptoms that i did not want to experience.

One thing I found extremely annoying was that i had a positive OPK for 7 days straight CD's 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21. I also starting taking HPT's on cd 18 until I got my BFP since I've heard of people getting positive OPK's and it was just picking up HCG, which was not the case for me all of my HPT'S were 100% negative until 7 DPO. the OPK's could've continued to be positive but I ran out of OPK's and was not going to spend money on more since I'd done pinpointed ovulation on CD 16 with BBT, then on CD 23 i took a dollar tree HPT in the morning after seeing that my temps had risen higher and that's when I got a very super faint positive. later that same day went and bought a first response digital gold and got a YES+.

Symptoms with first pregnancy before missed period: Yeast infection, Flu like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, very sore boobs. just very sick all the time. BFP @ 9 DPO

Symptoms with second pregnancy before missed period: tickling feeling in uterus @ 4 DPO, peeing every 1-2 hrs, and thats about it. BFP @ 7 DPO.

These 2 pregnancies are polar opposite of each other symptom wise so far.

Since I decided to make all of these changes only during the month that I successfully conceived (april) I'm not actually 100% sure which change made the difference but I'm extremely happy and feel that this pregnancy was my birthday gift :)
