Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
06/05/2016 at 22:42
I am 24, DF is 37 and we are TTC for baby # 1.
I am about 8DPO today, I used a cheap one-step test after holding for 3/4 hours this evening, I got a very faint line which showed up better when inverted.
This prompted me to go out and buy a First Response test as my BB's have been so swollen and tender for the whole 8 days and I've had this awful copper taste in my mouth for 2 days now.
I showed a dip below cover line on my BBT chart on 6DPO which I'm hoping was an implantation dip.
Below is my First Response test after 3 mins of development as the instructions say (so no evap, I had to put it up on the wall to stop my shadow covering!) and I've attached my chart too.
I keep having cramps on my left side, it's a dull ache that feels like OV but much more central.
My cervix is still high and softer on one side than the other (the other feels firm).
I've had no spotting at all.
What do you think? Xx

Defo a positive. Congratulations x
07/05/2016 at 01:02
Yup that's a positive X x
07/05/2016 at 01:30
Thank you both
Now I am just hoping and praying that this sticks, do you know how soon I could do a Clearblue Digital test? It would be great to see it in writing xx
07/05/2016 at 09:24
That's deff a positive! I'm having the same problem with a test I've taken... I'm sure I can see a very faint cross but I think I may be mad.
Yours if a positive!! Congratulations x

Thank you :-) Clearblue Digital came up Pregnant 1-2 this morning!
My First Response test came up with a much lighter line though, is this anything to be worried about? Xx

It could just be your urine was a little more dilute. its great you got a digital positive early on
07/05/2016 at 12:37
Hey jma10, : )
I just wanted to say massive congrats on your BFP hunni !! : )
I too had faint pistives first an then took a clearblue digital an got my 1-2 weeks BFP 3 days ago!!
Ps- If your anything like me (the sentimental type) then keep a picture of your BFP result because the result disappears after 24hrs or so..
Love & Hugs x x

Hi everyone :-)
Just an update, here are my progression tests from 8DPO and 10DPO, I've left out 9DPO as it was a lot lighter from FMU - these are from night time with 3 hour hold (8DPO) and second urine with 90 mins hold (10DPO)
The line looks stronger! Hopefully no cp, have to keep my fingers crossed.
My headaches and sickness have well and truly kicked in, I can't seem to stay asleep long either. Hopefully work will be ok this week, I'm so glad I've had this weekend to digest this.
I'm due AF either Weds or Thurs, I think I will start to relax on Friday when I turn 5 weeks And enter my 6th.
Attached is my bfp temperature chart for those who are interested, I have an implantation dip on Wednesday 6DPO :-)
For my BFP we followed the SMEP, and started BD every day starting from when my Clearblue Dual-Hormone test showed the flashing smiley.
It took ages to go static, but in the meantime we used Pre-Seed and I layed down for an hour or so after BD.
Hope this helps :-) xxx

Thank you for the tips jma

Big fingers crossed for you!! I dont want to put a downer on your happiness but try not getting to excited until your missed period last July I had the same 3 positive first response that got stronger and a clear blue that said 1-2 weeks but then my period came bang on time ;( and I was heartbroken after letting myself get so excited. Please keep us updated and I will be praying for you xxx

So sorry to hear of your loss Chamilto *hugs* xx
As for an update, full AF is due on Wednesday the 11th, first pre-AF spotting/cramping is due tomorrow.
Here is my test progression as of today 11DPO, I'm hoping now I've had over a weekend of being implanted (at the least) that this should stick.
Sorry to ask Chamilto, but how many days of darkening BFP did you have? Xxx
09/05/2016 at 20:38
Sorry Chamilto just noticed that you said 3 xx
09/05/2016 at 20:55
My tests never got as dark as yours have done! I've got everything crossed for you that no af arrives.
My sadness did turn to joy the doctor advices me after a cp the following month you are super fertile me and husband had a happy ending Iam due the 30th may xxxx
09/05/2016 at 22:28
Oh wow congratulations!
So pleased to hear it happened successfully so soon after your CP.
I think from this Wednesday to next Friday (20/5/16) is critical really, if I can just get out of what feels like the potential CP zone I can start to relax a bit.
Here's to 4 weeks and 4 days tomorrow, neeeeed to make it to 5 weeks ! Xx

With how dark your lines are getting I'd say there is a very good chance you are! It's such a stressful time.
at the time of my cp I think I kinda knew as I felt like I didn't want to do anything thinking I felt like the pregnancy wasn't going to last uf that makes sense so I wanted to sit still thinking it would make it stay silly I no!!
The tests I done the following month I never believed I done 3 and thought they were all wrong and went straight to the doctors who done a test that was also very faint he sent my sample off and called me at the end of the week with the results it was the longeSt week of my life!
I get so annoyed when I see people post faint positives and everyone comments congrats u defo are as they can't possibly no for sure that's wjat I done and everyone's comments made me get my hopes up even more I knew nothing about cp until I had one and felt as if I was grieving over a pregnancy that never existed in the first place I think there needs to be more awareness about them cxx

Yes I completely agree, I didn't even know chemical pregnancies were a thing until I started TTC - and that was only through forums.
Depending on what you count as your first day of AF I am either 1-2 days late now, 2 if you count that first light day with cramping (I usually go for the first day of full red).
So that's good, my CBD has gone from 1-2 weeks to 2-3! :D
I tested after work today without holding, just not having a drink from 3-5pm or so, not long.
Does this mean I'm potentially out of the CP zone? Xx

Cp is usually before missed period, after that it would be termed early miscarriage if you lost the Baby. Sounds like your hormones are rising great.. dont stress just enjoy, go to Doctors to have Pregnancy confirmed
12/05/2016 at 08:17
Yay so pleased for you as your cbd has changed doctor probably won't re test you unless you have reason to still feel your not pregnant.
Go see the doctor though to get reffered to midwife they don't see you until 8 weeks though such a long time to wait!
Take care of yourself and I hope you get a nice easy pregnancy mine has been a nightmare but I'd do it all over again :-) xxx

Me again :-)
Still no AF! Now a week late
I had a Doctors appointment on Monday, he didn't re-test me but gave some advice and mentioned when I asked that my risk of MC right now is 25% :/
I think worrying is a hobby of mine.
I'm booked in with the Midwife for my 1 hour first appointment next Thursday, can't wait!
I also have booked my first scan at a private clinic, it's booked for the 14th June so I should be around 9 or 10 weeks *touch wood*.
Going by last AF I am 5 weeks and 5 days, but going by my OPK's and temperature chart I am around 5 weeks - because I don't know for sure I'm hoping they'll offer me a really early dating scan before my scheduled one - I just really want to see what's going on in there :-) xx
