Have you ever gotten a BFP??


Hi ladies, I am in the WWT category but was just wondering What was it like for you when you got your FIRST BFP???

I have never experienced this before. What emotions were you feeling? Were you happy, shocked nervous scared?? How did you tell your hubby??

I know alot of times we experience BFN and its just heart sinking, but what about that BFP for the first, after all those BFN??

My hubby was with me when we found out. I think he was pretty shocked, even though he had been saying it for a couple days.

For me, I had been cautiously excited beforehand but when I saw the two pink lines, it was pure love. I connected instantly with my wee one and just broke down out of happiness.

Its indescribable to explain that emotion you feel when you find out you're going to be a mom, and its different for everyone. I was over the moon happy and felt in disbelief for a bit like "is this really happening to me?"

I just about passed out. To be honest though, it was the first test I'd taken when TTC (I've taken a couple tests way in the past when I was younger that were negative, but I very much wanted them to be negative! So that's sort of different, I think). We got pregnant 2nd cycle of trying and I didn't think to take any tests the first month because I felt fine and then got my period. When I was actually pregnant, I felt so ill. I literally couldn't get off the sofa the day before I was so nauseous! So I was pretty sure it would be positive, but still it was very overwhelming, just the sense that everything from that day on would be different (actually, it was pretty much the same when I was pregnant, it's having the baby that makes everything totally different, but that's how I felt at the time). I got up and tested as soon as I woke up that morning, which was at 6am because I couldn't sleep. I felt like I had to let my poor husband sleep, as he'd been up late the night before, and he slept til 9, so I literally sat there freaking out by myself for 3 hours! When he did wake up and get dressed, I told him I had something to show him. I'd put the test in a pot and put it out in the greenhouse in the garden. I made him go out to check the greenhouse because I told him he had to see what was growing out there. Which in retrospect, was really cute and creative actually. We now have a 3 year old, so next time I'll probably just blurt it out over our toddler jumping on the bed waking him up while I try not to throw up.

Hahaha...I'm the same way mindutopia...I'm testing solo with the next one and I keep thinking "oh I need to find a cute way to tell hubby." But reality is it will probably be while DS is crawling all over us and making a rukus of " ready for another!?" Lol

With my first bfp I cried hysterically. I had just turned 21, and even though we were trying I was so scared! My ds is an energetic almost 17 month old now.

For this pregnancy (only about 5 weeks along) I put my ds in a "best big brother ever" T shirt and had him walk into his daddies work. He works with all males so none of them caught on. It took a while to register. He got a huge smile on his face and thought I was lying. We had only been trying 3 weeks!

Such cute ideas you ladies got. Love them after recovering from shock or excitement. I bet its a hard secret to keep for those who's hubby is out at work and they wait for him to get home.

I got a bfp back in August. No one believed me. No one knew how to read a FRER and so couldn't see the light pink line I got at 13dpo. So I took another test on 14dpo. Hubby could see that one. But still no one believed me. Everyone insisted I get a blood test. I had to insist on it to the fertility doc because they said they normally don't do one if a home test is positive.

Hubby's reaction to the blood test was awesome. When I got the results I told him that yes I have hcg in my system. So I am pregnant. And he's like "so you're telling me that there is no other way for hcg to be in your system." and I'm "no babe. The only way there is hcg in my system is if a baby is growing." he sat back was like "whoa."

But I never got the reaction I wanted from anyone. No squeals, no massive hugs, no mother flipping out like you see on the youtube videos. It was so anticlimactic. And we have been wanting this for years and in only 3 tries of officially trying (being on Letrozole for me) we got it but no one did anything. My one sister didn't hug me until after the blood test results.

I honestly think it's made me a little jaded. Unfortunately that pregnancy ended in mc very early.

So after another 3 cycles we are taking a break and so I am here.

But I am not planning on letting anyone in the real world know when we start up again. Maybe then I might get the response I was looking for.

haha all the answers here are so enthusiastic. I'm jealous. For me, my BFP followed a suspected chemical during which I kept seeing very faint lines so seeing very dark lines was definitely a shocker. But because of a previous chemical, DH and I were both very skeptical and we were very coolheaded about it. I'm still coolheaded because I haven't been scanned yet. I think for people that have been TTC and on this forum for a while, it's hard to get excited when you know that any moment things could go wrong.

The one reaction I did have to my clear BFP was "huh, I guess it is possible for us" I mean we tried for 9 cycles which isn't that long but still after a while just felt like nothing could ever happen. So regardless of what happens, it was comforting having that information
