BFP - stories, symptoms and support


Hello everyone,

We got our BFP weekend just gone and was hoping to find some other same sex parents who are at a similar stage to us or not.

Hoped we could share stories, symptoms and support each other. Because we all know how stressful the whole situation is!

CONGRATS!!!!!! Its such an amazing thing when you find out your prego. We did it!!! Our 1st month TTC using at home AI and it was a success. We got our first faint faint line on a dollar tree home pregnancy test 10 DPO, so we started googling faint lines and kept reading the words " A Line Is A Line." So we ran out the next day and got a Clear Blue Digital and got a as well. I was soo ecstatic I ran out the bathroom and tossed the test to my partner she jumped up and danced all over the house. Everything that we read said that the things that I'm experiencing weren't possible, but they ARE!!!!!!! I'm currently 28 weeks and 2 days with a big and healthy baby BOY!! It's crazy how everything we googled about at home AI and picking the gender of our baby actually worked. So far I really haven't had too many symptoms that i've read about. I have had some tho like heartburn, sensitivity to smells, vivid dreams, back pain, and i've been very emotional every lil thing gets to me and makes me cry. Goodluck to everyone who is TTC and CONGRATS to the ones that already have. Be Blessed!

Blackmoon that's great! Well done and congratulations!

We conceived first time with home ai too! Got a faint line at 11dpo, but struggled to believe it for about five days, getting BFPs everyday but still couldn't believe it.

I'm still worried about the m word from time to time, but just keeping positive!

I'm only 4 weeks 3 days and for the last week I've been having waves of nausea, back ache, dizziness, my bbs have grown and changed in texture and are super sensitive and I'm so emosh! My wife keeps saying "you're a sensation flower at the moment"...a kind way of saying you've turned into a crazy emotional roller coaster!

Yeah me too I was very worried about the "m" word. Even had very vivid dreams about it to the point I woke up checking myself for blood but don't worry everything will go fine just don't stress yourself out about it. But from the sound out your symptoms your very much prego lol. Thank goodness I really haven't gone through too many pregnancy symptoms. My boobies still aren't sore lol and I'm almost ready to pop. My partner always talks about how emotional I am. When we first found out I'd say for about 2 weeks just looking at her would get on my nerves lol I'd wake up in the morning and look at her with the meanest looks lol. I honestly believe its because I'm having a boy. I have no control over my emotions and it really sucks. What are you hoping for? A boy or girl?

How funny about your being emosh with her, I bet that got on her nerves! The things we put ourselfs through for love! Glad I'm not the only one with crazy going on inside! I watch youtube videos about anything and find myself balling!

Lucky for you with your boobs! Mine are sore whenever I take my bra off or the mrs bumps them! My backache and waves of nausea is the worst! The midwife told me that early and often nausea could be a sign of twins! I have twins both sides of my family too! Hope for twins!

I am hoping for a boy, or girl/boy twins....but I really want a boy, obviously I would be over the moon with either!

Were you wanting a boy?

I've had horrid dreams too, I think I'm running on a low level of anxiety about it all. But I am defo relaxing with each day.

Hey, why are you waiting?

My wife and I waited for four years, we have been together for seven years, but wanted to wait till we brought a place and were settled in our jobs and stopped studying. We planned initially to try when I was 26 but I got a new job and then my mrs went back to school, so we waiting and ill be 29 in August....the wait was hard work, but worth it to feel settled, we still have worries about money, but I think everyone struggles financially when they have a baby.

Well... In short, financial reasons as well here. Neither of us particularly makes a lot of money so we have crazily been living with roommates and saving money where we can. Honestly we still don't have much but OH got a promotion at work and we have alerted the landlords we will be finding our own place come December/January. We have been at our jobs steadily for 4 and 5 years respectively and have that stability. The $300 dollar car payment is finally going to be gone in September which will allow us to save that money, and it just seems that everything is finally going in the right direction. Its about time, OH just turned 32 on Thursday and she wants to bake a bun herself! We are waiting to get settled in our new place next year, and hopefully save a good chunk of money before officially starting to try.

Sounds like a sensible plan.

I think what helped us was that I monitored my cycle and ovulation for about six months before trying so was really prepared and had all the information from the ovulation kit over six months to be really accurate with the date of unsemination. Because you will have the time to do so, I recommend monitoring closely for as long as you can prior to starting which will hopefully mean you can successful early on trying

Thanks we just recently downloaded Fertility Friend apps and are testing it out. Haven't gone as far as buying anything yet but we will soon, especially a thermometer from what I've been reading. I'm just so excited!
