Reading these stories definitely helped me to not get discouraged while we were trying. I couldnt wait until it was my turn to post my story, so here it is.

I got my IUD, which i had the full 5 yrs, removed back in Nov. The hubby and i decided we were ready to try for our first together. So we started trying and i would take the pregnancy tests and get a negatives over and over. It started getting frustrating and i finally just said " if it happens it happens but im not stressin anymore"

I got my AF Jan 14 and it was the first full blown 7 day bleed since before i had my daughter. After getting done with that i started feeling sick to my stomache around the first week of Feb. I had a constant headache from monday on the first week up until wednesday of the next week. Thursday night of the first week until sunday of the same week i was getting fevers off and on and cold chills and hot flashes. Went into the emergengy room sunday aftternoon and they told me i had an Upper Respiritory Infection and sent me on my way with antibiotics. Shortly after getting home and resting for a litttle bit my boobs started really feeling very sore. On Valentines day i decided enough was enough and i broke down.and took a test.

I had to do a double take when i seen the test with its 2 lines. I started bawling right away and my daughter came in to.see what was wrong. After texting the picture of the test to.my husband at work and him being informed, he stopped on his way home feom work at the store to gwt the digital tests. After poas with digital and it said "Pregnant 2-3" it became even.more real.

Got an appt tomorrow to get the proof of pregnancy and get everything going.

I wish everyone luck and sending baby dust your way!!!

bfp with first IUI !!!

Posted by daisyhv
A little background on me - I am 27 and have been TTC #1 for 18 months. My husband is 28. We got the whole work-up including all labs, the HSG for me, sperm analysis for my husband and everything was perfect. So we were diagnosed with a very frustrating "unexplained infertility". My Doc decided to start me with a Femara and IUI cycle. I took 2.5 of femara cd 4-8 and when I went in for an ultrasound on cd 11 my eggs barely had responded to it at all - lots of follicles but the biggest measuring 13 and the rest 9-11. I went back on cd 16 for another ultrasound where I had one large egg at 20 and the rest 14 ish. My lining was great. So pretty much the medication did nothing as I was ovulating on my own each month anyway and I was very regular :( . I was hoping for a couple eggs and was feeling let down. I went home and took an ovulation test (as i had gone to the US straight from my night shift) and low and behold it was positive! So I called him back and he said to come in the next morning for the iui! Hubbies post-wash count was 157 mil which was awesome! The IUI took 10 minutes and was painless and I stayed on the table for 10 minutes after. I didn't feel good about the cycle because the meds didn't have a good response and then we didn't get to BD that night after the IUI which you are supposed to and we couldn't BD 24 hours prior so our only other shot in the fertile window was the BD we did 2 days earlier.
I kept myself distracted during the 2ww so I wouldn't stress as much ( I think this really helped ). My parents were in town, and then I worked a few days, and then me and hubby went on a wknd away for valentine's day. SO i didn't have a lot of time to fret over every little possible symptom as I usually did which was a lot easier on my nerves.
Anyway, the night of 9dpiui i had a very vivid dream about waking up and taking a pregnancy test and getting a very very light line that no one could see but me. the dream seemed so real that I woke up and decided i should test. i left it for 3 minutes and came back to the faintest squinter bfp ever - but it was a BFP!! Having never gotten one before I started crying and my husband came in and was cautiously excited since it was so light (he doesn't understand a line is a line). I tested again 12 hours later and it was significantly darker. I have my first beta tomorrow! I can't believe the iui worked on the first try and I can't believe i am finally pregnant after so long - it is truly surreal!

Symptoms by DPIUI:

DPIUI 1-4: Nothing, felt totally normal.
5 DPIUI: I sleep during the day as I work nights and I woke up three times that day with severe vertigo to the point of vomiting. it only happened that day ( i think this was implantation)
6-8 DPiui: slightly gassy, bowels a little loose (sorry if TMI)
9 DPIUI: peeing more frequently and dizzy/vertigo (this was my biggest sign as it persisted all night and I knew i was hydrated/had no alcohol/etc)
10 DPIUI: BFP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

since the BFP I have gotten slightly swollen breasts, some light twinges/pulling in uterus, continued dizziness and minor nausea now and then.

This month we used:

Femara 2.5 mg CD 4-8
IUI on CD 17
pre-seed for all BD
OVABOOST and MACA fertility supplements along with my normal pre-natal supps

Good luck to all of you trying! Hang in there! It will happen for you all! Love, happiness, and of course baby dust!

We prayed and He made it happen!

Posted by TTCbabyH
I always told myself that I was going to post when we were pregnant because it always seemed to keep me positive to read all of the success stories on here.

well............ WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

We actively tried for 9 months, but quit preventing about 1 year and 3 months ago. The first few months that it didn't happen didn't really bother me because I expected that it might take awhile. But then as time went on, we started to worry and stress and break down a little more each month. I was really starting to worry that it was never going to happen. Plus, it seemed like EVERYONE that I know was announcing they were pregnant and it made it sting just a little more each time (not that I wasn't happy for them, but if i am completely honest, I was jealous and wondered why it wasn't us) - I even started to turn away from God because we prayed and prayed and it wasn't happening.

I started seeing my chiropractor for help and he put me on supplements (paraplex, chaste tree, and tribulus) was taking prenatals daily. Then a few more months went by and I decided to switch OBGYN's. We both got tested and were fine with the exception of me having a tilted uterus, which made it just a little harder to get pregnant.

After seeing both doctors gave me more hope and I came back to God for help. We continued to pray and my prayers began to change from help me get pregnant to help me stay strong this month when it doesn't happen.

Everyone told me that stressing out about it doesn't help. BUT, you all know that when you want a baby and it isn't happening, there is little control over your emotions and the stress it takes on you both (so that advice meant nothing to me!). I actively made the decision to not stress this month because once finding out we were ok, I felt like worrying was a waste of time.

I did research on the Internet for tips for tilted uterus....we did rear entry (aka...doggy style) at time of positive ovulation tests and I laid on my belly afterwards with hips elevated.

Generally I have brown spotting for 3-4 days before my period actually starts and I didn't have anything all weekend (today is my scheduled start day). Plus my boobs were VERY tender and I was so tired and had extremely crazy dreams. I couldn't take it any longer yesterday, so after work I decided that I would go ahead and take a pregnancy test.

Two lines showed up almost immediately and I just couldn't believe it so I had to take another one! (mind you this was at 3 in the afternoon - not first morning urine) We are SO happy and praying that everything goes ok because all that it took us to get here, I just can't imagine if something goes wrong.

This is our first baby and we are so excited. Good luck to all of you trying to conceive; I definitely know the emotional toll that you are going through.

Happy happy happy!

Posted by agatch
Hello ladies,

Reading others success story always put a smile on my face while I was still hoping for my BFP so I thought I'd share my happy story! My husband and I have been TTC for 7 months and I stopped birth control about 10 months ago. I was very surprised when I realized how much birth control affected my body. When I stopped, I started having pretty intense ovulation pain the first few months. I also had serious mood swings. My cycle were pretty regular though. 28 days for the first few months and then it started to vary a little more (between 27 and 33 days). In the past several months I thought I was pregnant several times. I would feel all these "symptoms" that I thought were early pregnancy symptoms but I would get a lot of BFNs and AF would end up showing up. Every time that happened I would be pretty upset and wonder how I could be silly enough to imagine all these symptoms! This months, my husband was away on a trip for 5 days in what should have been my fertile time so I thought we would be out. I decided I was not going to worry about it this cycle and I took a break from charting. Around cycle day 14, curiosity got the best of me so I starting taking my temperature in the morning (not everyday but I still kept an eye on it). I realized that I still had not ovulated and my husband came back from his trip when I was on CD 19. It seems like we conceived on CD 20 and I ovulated on CD 22 which was a lot later than usual for me. I wasn't completely sure I had ovulated on that day because I have not checked my temperature every morning but it was the most likely. My symptoms this months were the following:\
8 dpo: bloating/constipation (which I get pretty much every cycle so I didn't read into it), mild, dull cramps which were a little different that what I had experienced in the past, tender breast (which I also get every cycle)
9 dpo: still tender breasts, soar throat
10 dpo: tender breast that feels harder than usual, tired, still the mild cramps, alcohol low tolerance, spotting and my taste buds were off. I had smoked salmon with my eggs but couldn't eat more than a bite. It tasted really bad (DH said it tasted completely normal). I was also pretty moody and hungry. I had light brown spotting
11 dpo: still moody, tired, mild cramps and sore boobs, increase appetite
12 dpo: about the same as the previous days + I noticed more CM that usual at that point of my cycle (I usually only have dry CM at that point)
13 dpo: today! I took my temperature this morning and it was still high which made me think that I had either ovulated later than I thought or I was pregnant so I tested with 1st morning urine and got my BFP!

I was really surprised as I thought we would be out this cycle and it was an unusual cycle because I ovulated so late. I guess relaxing a bit more about everything helped! Now I am hoping everything will go well from here as it is still so early. I am so happy though!!

Baby dust to all of you!

BFP on our first cycle trying!

Posted by elysew88
I have a 2 year old son who is ready for a sibling. We decided we wanted them to be around 3 years apart but I didn't want the birthdays in the same month so they each could feel special on their birthday.
I tracked my cm which worked well for my last pregnancy and figured out on a calendar when I should be ovulating. My cm matched up perfectly with my fertile week and we had sex every other day including ovulation day that week.
I felt ovulation pain on the left side the night I ovulated and the next day I felt a pin prick feeling on that same side of my uterus. Since then, I had mild cramping both across my whole lower abdomen/pelvis and also just on the left side. I also felt nausea on and off, had increased sensitivity to smells, bloating and has, fatigue by the afternoon, lower back pain, and gagging in cold air. Increased vaginal fluid-very watery thin and clear, sometimes it is a little milky but mainly clear.
I didn't get a BFP until the day of my missed period. I even had been using first response 6 days sooner and clear blue digital with no luck even though they say they give early results. It must have taken a while to implant!
before TTC I had been drinking extra water and taking prenatals and calcium chews and eating plenty of healthy calories. At least 1500 calories a day. When I ate less than that my period got off schedule I noticed so I made sure I was eating a well balanced diet when we decided it was time to try. My biggest piece of advice is to read what to expect before you're expecting. I read it before both pregnancies and it reminded me of so much useful information and answered a lot of questions. I'm so excited and in a state of shock right now. Good luck and baby dust to all!
