OMG BFP after 19 cyycles!

Posted by snowy789
We'd been ttc for 19 cycles, around 18 months with no luck. I had blood tests and hubby his "sample" tested, all came back clear. I'd just got the doctor to refer us to the fertilitily clinic on the month i got my bfp (i got it before my appointment letter arrived!)
So what did we do differently? Apart from booking a holiday of lifetime in 8 months time to New Zealand and Australia (paid in full and is none refundable) we werent ttc at all as i'd be 37 weeks on the way back from this holiday. Maybe this was the relaxing technique i needed! lol.
I also took Seven Seas ttc vits and Agnus Castus vits too for the first time. Maybe it was one of them or a combination - but it worked :)
I used the Clearblue Advanced Fertility monitor but the preious 2 months it couldnt pick up my "peak" so i was also tracking my bbt. This month was the same, no peak, but Fertility Friend gave me my Ovulation day. 5dpo i started to get hot flushes. I normally feel the cold so this was unual for me! I also had a bit of a dizzy spell. I tested on a opk and got a very very very faint 2nd line. I tested on 6dpo on ic and i swore i could see something but hubby couldnt. No symtoms apart from a few hot flushes again. 7pdo and i used a Superdrug test and got my BFP!!!
Af would be due yesterday (9dpo) and im getting cramping as if its coming, but preg tests are getting darker :) Bbs slightly ache and feel heavy, but to be fair thats normal for me between ov and af. This was the first month they didnt hurt in between - just from about 8dpo.
We're both over the moon as i really thought it wasnt going to happen naturally. I want to shout and telll everyone but can yet! lol. Doc has confirmed yesterday i was 3 weeks and 4 days :)
Good luck and hope you get your bfp soon - dont give up hope! Hope is what kept us going :)

TTC #2 after IUD - 38 years old w/ PCOS

Posted by ttcno2afteriud
Our first baby was a happy surprise baby so when it came to baby #2 this was my first time TTC. Totally hated it to be honest. The last time we were a new couple and all we had to do to "try" was get busy 3 times a week, a couple of times a day and hey presto! By the time I realised I might be pregnant I just took one test which was majorly positive.

This time with a 18 month old toddler around, the sex is a lot less frequent so I chose to monitor my ovulation with cheap internet pee sticks and track my CM. I had my IUD removed 1st March. That month I had MEGA pregnancy symptoms which I later figured out was a hormone "let down" from the IUD. It definitely wasn't me mistaking PMS symptoms as I had smell aversions which I only ever get when I'm pregnant. I had convinced myself I was pregnant and the disappointment was horrible.

The next month - we weren't trying as I (crazy I know) didn't want to have a January baby. Me and my sister don't get on and I put this down to her being a Capricorn and me a Gemini - bad mix. So didn't want a Capricorn baby. I'm actually embarrassed to admit this....

April was full throttle TTC. The Ovulation predictor strips I ordered for my May cycle and it really took the first month just to figure them out. They can be hard to tell at first what is a positive result. For me the 2nd line needed to start appearing within the first minute and then at least the first portion of the test line had to be darker than the control line.

3 months of the strips and CM tracking (4 months actively TTC total) and BINGO a positive pregnancy test. Thank goodness it wasn't too long as I am not patient at all and was starting to hate the process. The pregnancy test I used were also cheap sticks from the internet and the positive was SO FAINT I could barely make it out. But it was there 3 days before I thought I was due and confirmed with a first response.

Symptoms were very mild - just 2 days of mild cramping and moodiness about 4 days before my period was due. I may have had a tiny implantation bleed 6 days before I was due. I don't know when I ovulated and I have an irregular cycle that averages at about 32 days.

Oh yeah - one other thing that I'm mega happy I did was not tell my OH about the testing and fertility windows. I felt it would be a passion killer/pressure so just took it upon myself to "seduce" him when we needed to BD. Turns out seducing him is no harder than giving him a nudge in bed first thing in the morning and then a little cuddle. Doesn't take much to get him in the mood! :)

I'm still a little shocked that I'm pregnant to be honest. I guess I had started thinking that we had just got lucky with baby #1. I'm 38, have PCOS so I thought the odds were against me. Wrong!

Very happy to now be 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. Hope my experience helps someone out there. Good luck!

Here's to baby no.1

Posted by yellowmoon
Hi Ladies, I decided it was about time I wrote my story as I am currently 6-7 weeks pregnant!
Still cannot believe it, it is much harder to believe when you only have those two pink lines to show for it- I do love those lines though.

This month we tried extra hard to dtd during my fertile time. Usually it is a struggle with timing due to work etc but we managed to cover most days over two weeks and amazingly it worked.

I tested faintly positive at 9dpo. I tested so early because of some brown tinged cm and a few red specks at entrance to cervix I had at around 4dpo. I know this is supposedly too early for IB. My dates may be off by 2 or so days but I do use opks.

From 10dpo-15dpo I woke up every morning with a bad tummy- how lovely!

other than sore boobs, which I always get from ovulation until my period, and period cramping for a week and a half, I had very little else to go by. I ended up doing about 10 tests due to disbelief. I also wanted to check the progress after a chemical pregnancy last year around 4 weeks 3 days. I have also probably been a even a little more emotional than my usual self- crying at a documentary about elephants.

cramping has now subsided but twinges etc are common. Boobs are progressively more sore, especially the nipples but they are worse at night and first thing in the morning. Most of the time I hardly even notice them and then I worry aha. Worrying begins so early!!

Praying for a healthy sticky baby and wishing everyone else the best of luck! :)

BFP same month as IUD removal

Posted by ifallelsefails
I had the ParaGaurd IUD put in in January after an abortion (following a rape in December - HARDEST time of my life...)
In February, I reconciled with an ex; we were still in love with one another and wanted to give things a try again.
Got my period July 2nd of this month, and decided to TTC. I have two boys from a previous relationship, who my partner absolutely adores, as they do him. Had my IUD removed right after AF, on July 2nd, and started trying immediately.
Sore, tingly books, back cramps and fatigue last week, two negative tests...
vivid dreams and more cramping this week, (including a dream about peeing on a stick (lol)), tested last night with a FRER, very faint second line, then again with a dollar store cheapie; a more defined BFP! Didn't think it was going to happen this quick. ..
