BFP- No symptoms!

Posted by tmk2016
Last week, I got my BFP after 4 months of trying :) While I realize it's not a long time to wait, it was enough to make me crazy and depressed! So many people around me are getting pregnant in their 1st mo, so I was feeling faulty. I checked this site often while ttc for some perspective and I knew I had to contribute my support when my turn came...

In the 4 mos we were TTC, I experimented with everything from acupuncture to OPKs. I know no one likes to hear it, but we got our BFP the month I chilled out. I stopped testing, temping, and GOOGLING! I started telling myself, "Ok, I need to give this a year and we will be fine". By 12 DPO, I swore the cycle was a loss and was more upset than previous months. My bbs weren't sore, I wasn't tired, and I felt like my period was coming...I didn't have any of the symptoms I thought I would. In fact, I thought I could've been pregnant every month that I was not.

I decided to test CD28, which I do every month, and BOOM! 2 Blue Lines! Maybe this was just my fertile month, but I do believe my BFP is because I gave the crazy a rest. Looking back, my only clue was that my bbs weren't sore after ovulation as usual, and didn't become sore until about 8DPO. My symptoms didn't start until CD29 when I realized my cramping was different than with AF.

My point is, don't obsess about symptoms and remember that a cycle isn't over til AF shows!

2 miscarriages and a year later...

Posted by KressLove
Just as the title says, I had two mc last year, and was pretty down and trying ever since. I know you hear this a lot, but it wasn't until I STOPPED tracking, and STOPPED trying, did I get pregnant. First, I prayed for God to give us a viable, healthy pregnancy and baby. Other than that, I didn't do anything else.

Symptoms I experienced:
Extremely bloated for 1 day (8 dpo) guessing implantation
Bouts of nausea since 8 dpo
Upset stomach (feeling of being on a roller coaster with a full stomach)
Dreaming about water, fish, and even a baby
Awful diarrhea starting 10 dpo
Hot flashes
AF cramps the day she was due, and a 'heavy' feeling in my uterus.


So as you can see, I didn't have an army of symptoms. Not to sound cliche, but I've had more symptoms in non pregnant cycles. I don't have loads of cm. My cp the day before my bfp (day before af was due) was low, firm and open. 1 day after bfp, it's medium, firm and open. I'm saying that to say this: those aren't good indicators! I don't have sore boobs and not feeling exhausted.
The one thing that made me say "hmmm, I should test" was the diarrhea. I knew it wasn't anything I was eating. Your pregnant cycle may not be textbook. Never rule yourself out until the witch shows. I actually had a drink the night before my bfp because I checked my cervix and it was firm, low and open, the same way it was every month before af. I gave up on myself. These success stories have helped me so much throughout my journey, and I hope mine helps someone else.
Your time is coming! Hang in there! And most importantly, ASK and you shall receive! GOOD LUCK LADIES!

BFP at 18 DPO after two miscarriages!!

Posted by Wanttobeamummy1
I finally got my BFP today at 18 DPO and I could not be happier. I had my second miscarriage in October and ever since my period has been very irregular so I decided to wait till today to test to hopefully avoid the disappointment of seeing another negative.

I have had very few symptoms apart from a very sharp stabbing pain that I had on the lower left side of my tummy around 9-10dpo which went way after around 2 mins, I also had (TMI!!) Diarrhea around 10-14dpo and sore breasts with cramps around 10dpo up until today when I finally caved in and tested as I was 4 days late for my period.
I have also had a very runny nose through my whole TWW but I have no idea if this was a symptom.

I didn't really do anything this month of TTC, me and my partner decided that wed take a more laid back approach, no temping, no symptom spotting etc. We had sex every other day with no stress or worry about whether I'd get pregnant or not and just enjoyed each others company.

The only advice I can give to all you ladies TTC is not to stress out or worry and DO NOT symptom spot as I have come to realise that this month when I conceived I had less symptoms then when I thought I was pregnant in the past!!

Good luck to all you ladies TTC and baby dust to you all!!

I'm just hoping and praying that this pregnancy will be 3rd time lucky and that this little bean sticks!!

Xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Concieved after 13 months of negatives

Posted by AbbyOrtiz
Prior to having trouble to concieve, I have three beautiful and healthy kids. My husband and I decided to try for baby #4 on January 2015. Since I have never had a problem concieving I thought I would get pregnant on the first month, after all I was charting my temp and using CB digi ovulation tests to no prevail Month after Month I would not get pregnant and that turned me into a stressed psyco pee on a stick looney!! Finally on June 12 I felt like god answered my prayers and I finally got I what I had been waiting for, a positive pregnancy test. The line was noticeble but not dark positive. I waiting a couple of days and went in for a doctor's urine pregnancy test, my life turn upside down from that moment on. I got a negative result :( My heart was crushed but I kept wondering why I still had positives. On June 18 only 6 days after getting a positive hpt, I started to miscarry. Like many of us TTC woman, I spend hours online googling every single possibility that i wasn't miscarrying and came across "chemical pregnancies" There was no doubt that I had a chemical pregnancy loss. After that my depression and stress were at its all time highest. For the next months I stopped "trying" and just let nature take its course. For the next months until January 2016 I had not been able to concieve so in the beginning of February I decided that as soon as I got my menstrual cycle I would try seeking professional help. February 13 My husband and I decided to go for a date to our annual carnival event. First ride we rode and I felt so nauseous we left right after. I felt sick all day and woke up still nauseous on Valentines Day. Since I always have a stack of cheap first signal hpt's laying around, I decided to test with my first morning urine. To my surprise It was positive. I was shocked so I literally ran to walmart 7am on Valentines day to purchase ClearBlue digital hpt's and sure enough I was PREGNANT 1-2 weeks. I made calculations and was around 11-12 dpo and still had 3 days till my missed period. The tests line were already pretty dark so i decided to go for a doctors test and finally after a whole year trying, I could finally say I'm pregnant. Although I am still early in my pregnancy I am sure feeling pregnant this time around. My little bun is sticking. It doesn't guarantee I wont miscarry but I feel certain that baby #4 is baking properly. I just pray that I have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Don't give up ladies!!
