Calling all BFP virgins!!! Perpetual "One Line Only" support group!
Hey all! Calling all BFP virgins! I feel like I can't be alone.
11 months TTC and I'm STILL a BFP virgin. No mc, no chemicals (not that I'm hoping for this outcome). My period is always on time, if not early. Heck, I don't even get evap lines! I seriously cannot imagine what two lines would look like for me, and have even contemplated drawing in a second pink line just to see what it might feel like! Haha...yes, I'm lame like that.
My first 5 months TTC I didn't even ovulate at all and was also an OPK virgin. Thanks to my dx of PCOS combined with drug cocktails of letrozole and metformin I have at least been ovulating the last six cycles, so I have graduated from the OPK virgin-hood. I've also done three IUIs, but no dice! Stark white pregnancy tests all the time.
But still...that illusive BFP is still out of reach. So... Calling those in a similar situation! Lets start a group and wait out our virgin-hood together!
I'll join! We're on cycle 8 of TTC. Went off of birth control five months before we started trying, but honestly there wasn't a whole lot of preventing going on during those five months. I started opks during cycle 7 and got a positive on CD 13 (I was giddy because its the first time I've ever seen two lines on something I peed on). I started temping this cycle just to confirm ovulation, so we'll see how that goes.
I've been in a real funk for a week or so and just am not feeling that hopeful. I'm going to start opks again on Monday or Tuesday so hopefully that will improve my outlook on things.
Hi Pirate! I totally know how you felt about the positive OPK. When I FINALLY got a positive OPK for the first time (after about five months of NOTHING because my body refused to cycle normally) I ran downstairs like a maniac yelling for DH to look at that lovely smiley. You would have thought it was an Honest to God BFP the way I was acting. I was just so, soooo happy that my pee did *something* exciting and felt like I had at least Gotten over my ovulation hurdle.
But.... Six cycles with a clear ovulation pattern now (four because of letrozole and two natural) and I'm still waiting for a BFP...
I was so excited that I put peestick porn pictures on my journal. I *think* I've been ovulating all along, but apparently my EWCM does not coincide with ovulation so the opks were good in that respect. Now I'm hoping to confirm that I do indeed ovulate (as opposed to just have the LH surge).
It sounds like you are really ramping up your game! I bet you'll have your BFP soon. I've been temping all along (and confirming O the last six months), but I gave up temping this month after I confirmed my O. Analyzing my chart for any little bump or dip during the TTW will make you crazy. I'm considering putting the thermometer down for my entire next cycle... But I don't know. I do feel it gives me *some* control.
I have a friend (on BnB) who temps for the 5 or so days around O just to confirm and then not for the rest of cycle. I'll probably revert to this too once I establish a normal temperature pattern. At this point I'm willing to do about anything to help us get a BFP!
Hello Ladies, glad I found this thread I too am a BFP virgin. Missy I too cannot imagine what it will be like to see those 2 lines!
I am also an opk virgin just never seem to time it quite right! We ttc for 16 months previously and in that time no positive opk or BFP. We took a 12 month break from ttc and we starting again 3 months ago and so far my cycles have not returned so just waiting now.
I have started temping again as that seemed to work for me before and did show signs I O'd. I have had some signs of O couple days back fingers crossed it was and AF will be here soon!
Fingers crossed we all soon get to see those 2 lines!
Hi Hopeful! Welcome! I know how you feel about waiting for AF. So far, TTC is nothing but a lot of waiting.
Waiting for AF, waiting to O, waiting to test. But, of all the waiting I've done, waiting for AF when my body was stalled last year (thanks PCOS) was the worse! So I definitely sympathize. Crossing my fingers you get AF soon and can start trying!
I'm a BFP virgin also.
Had my FIRST positive opk last wednesday and started singing "im laying an egg" grabbed the dog picked him up and span him Round !
Fiance was just as excited as I was when he got home half hour later he ran upstairs and took all his clothes off and jumped into bed haha. was so funny then i shouted "i feel FERTILE" god I hope the neighbours didn't hear!
I always imagine what it would be like to get a BFP.. I couldn't believe it
Hi there! I've just hit 1 year TTC and absolutely nothing. I've had the faintest of shadows a couple of times, but I couldn't be sure there actually was anything there, I suspect it was wishful thinking.
I've been tracked the last few cycles and it's become apparent that I'm not ovulating regularly/well, so I expect when I go back to my doc next month that she'll start me on clomid, I'm hoping that will do the trick.
