Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives


Intrauterine insemination, the infertility treatment in which sperm are placed directly in the uterus at the time of ovulation, is certainly one way to get your BFP. If you're undergoing (or considering) IUI, then this is the page for you!

BFP 4th IUI!!!

I can't believe I finally get to write my story eeeee!!! So exciting and so surreal! :) I'm 31 with Ovid and my dh is 29 with very mild mfi. So I did 6 medicated rounds (2 with Clomid - no response), (3 with femara 2.5mg, then 5mg, then 7.5mg - ovulated each time but with only one follicle). And finally I switched to injectables which is what brought my BFP!!! (100iu of puregon otherwise known as follistim days 3-6, then day 7 i did 75iu since I had over 8 follicles, then day 8 i coasted since I was over-stimulating with over 15 follicles!!! Day 9 i started surging on my own so I triggered around 3pm and had my iui 19 hours later at 10am with 4 potential follies in the running at 15mm, 16mm, 16mm and 17mm. 3 days later the ultrasound showed that 2 follicles had ruptured :) Here are my 2ww symptoms. Mind you around day 3-6 piui I had very bad sharp pains and bloating from all the follicles/cysts, but it went away. So I truly believe that this 4th iui worked because it was the only one where I had more than one follicle (2 released eggs) :) Dh has mild mfi since his count is a bit low, but the funny thing is that this bfp cycle is the one where he had the lowest posh wash sperm count of only 8.5million versus the other rounds of 12 mill, 12 mill, and 20mill!!!! Amazing how things work out :) Thats why I give credit to having more than one follicle this round!

Couldn't believe it!

I've been actively trying to conceive since September 2013. I have PCOS and I started with clomid and timed intercourse. Then I did clomid and IUI's. Finally I tried Femara and IUI and of the five IUI's I had, this last one was the worst. I did lose 40 lbs in 7 months which helped with a number of things. Things that went wrong during my last IUI:

1. Positive OPK a day early. I ovulated early so we could only see the collapsing follicles on u/s. No idea on size or how many I made.
2. The u/s was painful because they had a hard time seeing my left ovary and were really pushing around in there.
2. After wash, I stripped down and prepped for insemination. Results of sperm wash given to me at that time I was on the table. DH sperm results were the worst with only 20% of the 6 million sperm post-wash being designated "A" quality. Last cycle we had 340 million. I was crying on the table and asking if I should even bother. Nurses told me I might as well. Cried through the procedure from frustration. I told the nurses how tired I was.
3. Then I was very sensitive and they had a hard time inserting the speculum and had to use the largest one. Felt everything.

I left that day thinking, "Eff, this!" I just knew I WASNT getting pregnant after that debacle. I traveled, consumed alcohol, ate cake and braced myself for the next cycle.

Then 15 DPO my breasts got tender and I thought, "Here we go, AF is coming..." Then 16 DPO my nips were super sensitive. I thought, "It can't be." Had a glass of Prosecco and some oysters for lunch and didn't think of it again.

That night I was feeling more tender and so I was decided to test and get it out of the way. I swear when I saw a faint line indicating BFP, I called my husband over and asked him if he saw what I saw. Had a Beta the next day and confirmed BFP. Neither of us could explain it or believed it!

I am now 21 DPO and my HCG numbers are doubling properly (16 DPO: 358; 18DPO:684; 20 DPO: 1081). I have to say even now it is hard for me to feel like something bad isn't going to happen. How could such a mess turn out right? I am staying optimistic and living for today. I'm hoping for a sticky baby. I have my first u/s on June 15, 2015 at 6w3d and hope all is well.

Pregnancy after infertility can be hard because it feels like a live birth is the true success. Stay strong and hope for the best.

This is my first and I hope it all works out - wish me well. In the meantime, good luck to you all!

My Route to Motherhood

Hello, ladies!

I hope my story will encourage you to keep trying to have your baby. It may not happen on your schedule, but the Lord has His perfect timing and His perfect way to bring about His ideal family for you and your husband.

Here is my story:

About three years into our marriage, my husband and I decided that we'd like to start our family. We didn't go gung-ho at first. We simply stopped using any contraceptives, and if we get pregnant - great. We didn't think it would be too difficult, so we didn't put any effort into it.

We got our first ever BFP a few months later after coming home from a Las Vegas vacation. We were happily surprised and very excited. We told both sets of parents right away, and they were beyond thrilled. Both our parents had wanted grandkids from us from Day 1.

Unfortunately, this pregnancy ended in a miscarriage around the 6th week. My husband and I were devastated... but I think it hit me harder. Knowing that I was carrying a life in me for those precious two weeks that I knew I was pregnant was the ultimate high for me. To have my Baby Boo (our name for our little one) taken away so abruptly was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. It was only by God’s grace and my loving husband’s support that I got through that dark period of my life.

One of the hardest parts of the miscarriage was having to tell our parents and siblings that we were no longer expecting. It's one thing to have to go through heartache yourself, but it's quite another to have to break someone else's heart. We collectively were crushed.

My obsession with trying to conceive started right after the miscarriage. I wanted to get pregnant the very next month! But, of course, it didn't happen. I know some girls are lucky that way, but it simply wasn't our timing. My husband and I then went crazy with TTC. We charted, did the deed every chance we could, took loads of supplements, and I devoured the Internet on all things TTC related. All the shows I watched on TV were about pregnancy and babies: One Born Every Minute, 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom, etc. All the YouTube videos I viewed and books I read were about the same things. I didn't give myself a break.

Two of the most difficult days my husband and I faced that year were: 1) our baby's would-be due date, and 2) the one-year anniversary of when we found out we were pregnant. Those two days rocked my world, and I had to ask my husband for a little outing. So he drove me 25 miles to a beach city and we just spent the day there. It felt like a mini vacation, which helped a bit. Unfortunately, no matter where I went, I would see pregnant women, babies and little kids EVERYWHERE. I was going crazy with envy. (Can any of you relate???)

So a year had passed since the miscarriage, and still no BFP. I finally asked my husband if he would consider taking alternative methods like IUI and down the line, if that didn't work, IVF. He said yes, and thankfully, his medical insurance covered almost all of our treatments.

We started the IUI process in April 2014. That first round, I took 50 mg Clomid and 2 mg Estrace. I was a nervous wreck. The whole process was very overwhelming, not only emotionally but logistically, too.

When I got the negative pregnancy result that month via a blood test, I was devastated. My disappointment was almost to the same magnitude as the miscarriage. That negative pregnancy test was my last straw. I finally told myself that I couldn’t do this anymore… to keep obsessing with TTC. I just couldn’t go on living like this where my whole life was consumed with wanting to get pregnant. I FINALLY had reached the end of myself. That was when I told the Lord that it’s okay if I never get pregnant because I’m finally content. I told the Lord that I would still like to be a mother, and most likely that would happen via foster parenting or adoption. I had let go and let God take control.

For my second round of IUI, my nurse practitioner increased the Clomid dose to 100 mg while everything else remained the same. I, however, was changed. This time, instead of worrying over every little TTC-thing, I literally didn’t give any of it a second thought. I had finally surrendered. I focused my attention on everything else BUT trying to get pregnant. And guess what??? My BFP came on that second round!!!!!!!!!

BFP 11dpo – 1st IUI worked!

Hi everyone! I read this forum several times before we started our first IUI cycle, as well as my entire TTW. I am very happy to be able to share my story but also cautiously optimistic, as I am only 5 weeks.

My husband and I started TTC exactly a year ago. At one point I thought it was beginning to take over my life. I was diagnosed with PCOS and have always had irregular cycles. For the first 6 months of trying I was given medication to have my cycle start, peed on every ovulation predictor stick I could fine and chartered my basal body temperature. Still nothing.

We finally decided to see a Fertility Specialist. Though rounds of testing, blood work and ultrasounds, it was determined that I had a blocked left Fallopian tube. I had a procedure done to try and open my tube but it was unsuccessful. However, scarring was found on my uterine wall, and removed. My doctor explained that PCOS and the blocked left tube would make it almost impossible for us to conceive naturally and that we should try 2-3 cycles of IUI and then move on to IVF if those were unsuccessful.

We started our first medicated IUI cycle toward the end of April 2015 (Gonal-F, Ovidrel and progesterone). My body responded well to Gonal-F. However, after 2 weeks of medication, I had 2 large follicles on my left side, which we could not use since my left tube was blocked. My doctor decided to have me stay on Gonal-F for a few more days to continue stimulating my right side to grow. After 16 days of injections total, I had 3 mature follicles on my right side and I was ready for the trigger shot. My IUIs were scheduled for the next 2 days.

The night after my first IUI my husband and I decided to do the dead as well, we figured it couldn’t hurt. I also tried the old pineapple trick from 1-6dpo because again, it couldn’t hurt! I also started the progesterone vaginal suppositories 3 days after my second IUI and am still taking them.

The only symptoms I had after my IUI were gas, bloating and sore nipples.

8dpo I noticed I was spotting that morning. I felt completely discouraged and thought it was the start of AF. I continued checking the rest of the day and the next day, and nothing. No more spotting. I prayed it was implantation bleeding, but knew I couldn’t cheat and test early. My Beta was scheduled for another 9 days.

I cheated. I took my first pregnancy test 11pdo and had a really faint line. I wasn’t sure if it was still the trigger, so I decided to test again the next day. The line got darker, but still faint. The 3rd day of home testing, I took a digital test and it said “pregnant”. There was no mistaking that. My doctor allowed me to come in early for my Beta.

Beta#1 13dpo: 254
Beta #2 17dpo: 1427
Beta #3: 19dpo: 2574

Other than the one day of spotting, I didn’t have many signs or symptoms other than fatigue, backaches and cramping.

My husband and I are ecstatic to have our very first BFP but again, also cautiously optimistic.

I wish nothing but positivity and the best of luck to everyone out there waiting for their BFP! Have faith ladies. It can work!

BFP with IUI #5-Femara/Ovidrel

This was my last cycle on oral meds before moving onto all injectables, and we had met with the doctor about IVF and were considering it for August or September. So this is such a blessing!

This cycle was Femara 5mg CD 3-7 and Ovidrel 250 trigger shot, with IUI 24 hours later because I had a positive OPK at home (its normally 36 hours after) They originally thought the Femara didn't work this cycle because nothing was really growing as fast as it normally does, but I really think my body was acting more naturally based on my diet and exercise. Each previous cycle I had 1-2 follicles and my DH had great SA counts, but this just took this time! I had an HSG 2 months ago.

What I did different this cycle: I have PCOS, so after doing some research on diets, I discovered a LCHF (low carb, high fat diet) and have been following it for about 6 weeks now. So that means no sugar, no processed carbs, very limited fruit. Basically proteins, veggies (except potatoes and carrots) and full fat dairy (with no added sugar) I also did pilates on the reformer machine for 2 hours each week. I lost about 9 pounds in those 6 weeks, and I didn't count calories at all! In fact I feel like I ate a ton. If you have PCOS-try the diet!! It helps to regulate your insulin levels, etc.

1DPO/IUI cramping, EWCM

2DPO/IUI cramping, EWCM

3DPO/IUI mild cramping, no CM

4DPO/IUI nothing

5DPO/IUI nothing

6DPO/IUI watery cm-almost like I pee'd my pants

7DPO/IUI water cm

8DPO/IUI cramping

9DPO/IUI mild twinges/cramps

10DPO/IUI faint BFP on FRER & Wondfo (I had already tested out the trigger)

11DPO/IUI BFP on FRER, CB digi, and Wondfo, Beta 50.4

12DPO mild cramps, hungry

13DPO a little nausea in the am at work before eating, hungry, mild cramps, Beta is 172.2!

14DPO tired, hungry, mild cramps, nausea at bedtime

15DPO tired, hungry Beta is 406.4!

Good luck to all you other ladies out there!! God is good!

Blood test tomorrow - thinking positive thoughts!

My husband (31) & I (30) have been trying to conceive for over a year after having a miscarriage in Feb 2014 at 15/16 weeks. Had HSG in November, where they found that one of my tubes was clogged but they were able to clear it with the dye. Got pregnant that cycle only to find out that it was a chemical pregnancy at almost 6 weeks. Started seeing a fertility doctor in Feb 2015. My husband & I did all the testing - my progesterone was a little low, but otherwise everything looked great for me. His motility was a little low, but not bad. Started on 50mg of Clomid days 3-7, trigger shot on day 15 after u/s on day 13 showed 3 follices (19.4, 16.6, 15.1 + some smaller ones), IUI on day 16, & BD on day 17. His numbers had increased greatly on the day of the IUI after being put on vitamins. I got my blood results for progesterone Monday & it was a little over 20. I go in tomorrow, May 18 for my blood test to see if we are officially pregnant. I've been testing every day for the last week & saw the line go from very faint to pretty much gone (trigger shot leaving my system), then about 4 days ago the line started to get darker & darker. Trying not to get my hopes up too much, but feeling pretty excited that it seems to have worked! Fingers & toes crossed that the tests tomorrow confirm the strips I've been using! Been feeling incredibly tired & moody, sore nipples just started a couple days ago, & have had twinges in the abdomen area off and on for the last 2 weeks, mostly in the first week though.

Hope I can sleep tonight!

3.5 years TTC and BFP with 100mg Clomid and IUI

After over 3 years scanning these lists, it feels surreal to finally be adding my BFP to the story. More than anything, I have learned that every path to pregnancy is different and you truly never know what will work for your body.

To be honest, there were very few symptoms that I noticed early on. I took 100 mg of clomid and had 3 follicles on the right, 2 on the left. I had thought I had problems with the left because I only ever (through devoted ultrasounds/tracking over 3.5 years) ovulate on the left. I had a potential blocked left fallopian tube that I had cleared 6 months before this BFP by surgery.

The 3 follicles on the right didn't mature and by day 14 were not large enough to be viable. On the left side, I had a 29mm and 21mm. My doctor asked if we wanted to go ahead with the IUI even though it was the left again and we said yes. My husband's sperm sample was generally strong/normal with 97% forward motile forms but only 5% normal morphology. Count was average. We did the IUI on day 14 at around 10am without a trigger shot (my doctor thinks trigger shots are detrimental - long story) and then BD'ed that afternoon. That night, I had severe ovulation pain while at a concert. I knew I was ovulating due to the pain but wasn't hopeful as my left side never seems to work. We were planning to move to IVF in coming months if this didn't work as my doctor wasn't sure I could get pregnant due to the left side always dominating and the right being PCOS.

About 10-11 days later (dpo), after I'd also flown from Asia to the US (so all that stuff about not being stressed/traveling is BS!) I started experiencing mild cramping off and on. It wasn't quite as severe or back-oriented as normal menstrual cramps so I wondered if it was implantation but I didn't have any implantation bleeding or other signs. I was quite emotional (crying easily) but also have those same symptoms during PMS, so really wasn't thinking this was anything unusual.

14 dpo, I actually started, for the first time in 3 years, feeling a little bit hopeful. I decided to take a pregnancy test (I didn't even have one on hand because I'd given up on getting pregnant). Lo and behold, there was the first positive we'd ever experienced. I was absolutely shocked.

Here's what I did different this month, although I honestly think this had nothing to do with it and we just got very lucky with the 2 eggs via clomid and the well-timed IUI:

- I did a strange Chinese massage around day 8-10 of my cycle during which they literally lit my stomach on fire (above a wet towel) and massaged my abdomen. I thought it was worth trying.
- I did fertility hypnotherapy once in the middle of my cycle. I've never done this before.
- As always, I was taking a strong women's daily vitamin and vitex (I've been taking vitex for 3 years). I also regularly took probiotics.

While I think the alternative therapies are great, I do not attribute my pregnancy to them. I attribute my pregnancy to a great fertility doctor who took everything month by month (i.e., the surgery to clear a blocked tube, ultrasounds, clomid, IUI, etc.). I truly didn't think pregnancy was possible for me. We were even in the process (2 years in) of adopting and may now have to put that on hold. I hope my story brings hope to readers here and also shows that a path to parenthood is possible. I was in a place where I was comfortable to live a life with only adopted children and I think that was a helpful mindset to have when approaching the stressors of fertility treatments but I know everyone's paths are different. I wish you all the best of luck on what is such a challenging, emotional journey. I am now 10 weeks pregnant and grateful for each day.

11dpiui BFP

TTC: 14 months, 2 failed IUIs (IUI 1: 1 follie, 14mil sperm. BFN) (IUI 2: 1 follie, 19mil sperm BFN)

Me: 30, one ovary, mild PCOS. I take Metformin to help regulate my cycle.
DH: 33, Mild male factor.
*CD1 : ready for a new cycle! After two failed IUIs and an additional month canceled due to a cyst, I was ready to get started.

*CD3-7: Clomid 50mg

*CD11: Two follicles on my one ovary. Both measuring at 10mm.

*CD15: Sono shows that one follicle is 14mm and the other 16mm. Lining is at 9. RE suggests waiting to trigger until CD 17 and to do the IUI on

*CD 19 so that my larger follicle can mature.

*CD16: BD

*CD17: I wasn't supposed to trigger until 9pm, but I got a blazing smiley OPK at 2pm. Called RE and she said "Trigger NOW!" and that it would boost ovulation. IUI moved up a day.

*CD18: IUI at 12:30pm. DH's motile count was 29Mil. Best numbers he has ever had! She did an external ultrasound right after to see that 1) I hadn't ovulated just yet and we didn't miss the egg. 2) that the sperm showed to be sitting and just chilling out ready to go. I put in a SoftCup before I left..ya know...just in case one of those pesky swimmers tried to escape.

*1DPIUI: barely noticeable flutter cramps from IUI. BD

*2-8DPIUI: Nada. Just really tired. But I get randomly tired all the time so it's not really noteworthy.

*9DPIUI: BFN. Kind of crampy. Barely noticeable though. Normal AF signs.

*10DPIUI: BFN. Have a total cryfest breakdown with DH about the possibility of us not being able to have kids for another year because we will have to save for IVF and I just *KNOW* this month isn't going to be it.

*11DPIUI: Woke to AF cramps. Took a Wondfo in AM and thought I might see a shadow. Posted to TWW blog and people said they saw it too, so I ran out to get a FRER for the evening. BFP by 6pm. Kept it secret from DH because tomorrow is his bday! By bedtime I had a huge headache and didn't sleep well. Sore boobs by morning.

*12DPIUI: BFP for sure in the morning! Had my DH open a present with a picture of our dog next to a onesie with the Dallas Stars logo on it (he plays hockey). We are both optimistic an ecstatic! Blood later in the morning had an HCG level of 24. Tender boobs, aversion to coffee smells, and headache are really the only symptoms I have so far.
Honestly, I have had more "symptoms" with BFN months. The only thing I notice now is somewhat tingly boobs, bloating, and headaches, and those are all indicative of AF as well.

My strategies:
-pineapple core plan 1-5dpiui
-Brazil Nuts 1-5dpiui
-peppermint tea/remove caffeine
-eating lots of salad and sweet potatoes
-Softcups after sex and IUI
-Digital OPK instead of wondfo

DH strategies:
-Maca root
-Multi vitamin
-Folic Acid

PCOS - BFP on 2nd IUI!

Hi everyone, I read this forum several times during my tww on both of my IUI and I am very happy to have the opportunity to share my story at statistics. To begin my husband and I are both 25, hubby's sperm is great (the counts of the day that our IUI worked were 30 million and 85% motility). I am 110-115 lbs, BMI 18.5 and diagnosed with PCOS. I have very polycystic ovaries and irregular cycles. It was pretty easy to tell I wasn't ovulating and since my sister has PCOS and has had to do IUI, IVF, and a FET to obtain three pregnancies I didn't wait around long to begin seeing an RE.

My journey started this February 2015, we did one round of oral clomid and I did not ovulate. In March we did our first round of injections (Follistim 37.5 units, 250 mcg Ovidril) with timed IUI. Also, I should note all of my menstrual cycles listed below required progesterone. Below is my timeline:

3/5 - CD 1
3/6 - CD 2, Estradiol 48.
3/7 - CD 3, Ultrasound and start injections
3/12 - CD 8, Estradiol 110. Ultrasound- Follicle on left ovary measured 12.8 mm, uterine lining ~6 mm.
3/16 - CD 12, Estradiol 325. Ultrasound- Follicle 18 mm, uterine lining 8.9. Trigger shot tonight @ 8pm.
3/18 - CD 14, IUI @ 9am, 2 week wait. -- BFN. Really disappointing because as you can see everything was perfect.

ROUND 2 (BFP!!) Follistim 37.5 u, 250 mcg Ovidril
4/8 - CD 8, Estradiol 69. Ultrasound- 3 follicles (2 on left, 1 on right) each measuring ~10 mm, uterine lining ~4 mm
4/11 - CD 11, Estradiol 105. Unsure of measurements, RN on weekend said I did not have any dominant measurements.
4/13 - CD 13, Estradiol 105. 1 follicle on right ovary measuring 12.5 mm, Uterine lining ~7 mm
4/16 - CD 16, Estradiol 311. Follicle 17.6, Uterine lining 9.5
4/17 - CD 17, Trigger injection @ 8pm
4/19 - CD 19, IUI @ 9am, tww begins!
4/27 - 10dpt, 8dpiui - Faint BFP
4/28 - 11 dpt, 9dpiui - Faint BFP
4/29 - 12 dpt, 10dpiui - Blood work: Hcg 36, Progesterone 55 (on vaginal suppositories twice daily)
5/1 - 14 dpt, 12 dpiui - Hcg 92, Progesterone 44
5/4 - 17 dpt, 15dpiui - Hcg 474!!! Progesterone 59
5/10 - 5 weeks Pregnant!! Temps still high (98.7 F), on twice daily progesterone vaginal suppositories as precaution, and awaiting our 6 week ultrasound on 5/21!

I'll be honest, we did everything exactly the same in both cycles. Intercourse on day before trigger, night of iui and every night the next 3 nights. I drank raspberry leaf tea in the weeks leading up to my IUI, I really believe this helps thicken your uterine lining. I did an ovulation test the night before our IUI and had a faint LH surge. I did not test out my trigger shot with pregnancy tests.

I don't believe I've had many signs and symptoms other than fatigue, tender breasts, and mild lower abdominal cramping (has made me think AF is coming a couple times). The day I thought I was possibly pregnant, I slept good all night, woke up tired, wanted to take a nap in the morning, and slept in the car during a 2 hour car ride (I never sleep during car rides because I can't fall asleep in cars!). My husband and I are both very cautiously optimistic since we are only 5 weeks but we are ecstatic to have our very first BFP!! After our first IUI I was really discouraged but it can work ladies!!

BFP after TTC 4yrs stage 3 endometriosis

Hi all!

I'd love to share my story, because if you are reading this, you may be loosing hope.

I lost hope completely. We were tapped out at $40,000.00 spent on procedures... and on the brink of divorce.

I probably would have bankrupted us from IVF... but we really lucked out. Here is our story...

We put ourselves on the Adoption list... but there was still years to wait on the wait list. .. so we fostered kids in the meantime... which made us better people. I truly believe life takes you on a crazy path that you can't change. But I wouldn't have changed my experiences for the world.

Because of infertility, I would have never looked into fostering kids, and we were so blessed to have had them in our lives.

In the beginning, I was put on chlomid for 3 months... which failed and gave me a cyst.

I needed a laproscopy... 2 year wait list from my doc... and I couldn't get in anywhere... except the U.S.A where I had to pay $15,000 for the surgery. It ended up being more invasive because I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis and they had a lot of cleaning up to do.

Well, the window after the surgery was unsuccessful... even though she said it was our best chance. Oh... and one of my tubes were blocked too.

So I went on to IVF.

It failed.

We couldn't afford to try again for a while, so about a year later... we tried our frozen embryo.

IT TOOK!!!! Then I miscarried at like 3 weeks.

So after all this devastation, both emotional and financial, we had to wait again... and man did we fight about it.

So, for a year I did all the naturopath stuff, reflexology, hot yoga, eating clean, natural and chemical free home, hypnotherapy, vitamins, acupuncture, essential oils.... all of it. Costing hundreds of dollars.

After discussing our situation again with our Doc, She suggested I try an IUI for fun... a last ditch effort to save us the money of IVF again...

And it worked!

No miscarriage so far and I'm 6 weeks.

I'm 29... with a failed IVF... and for some miracle... and IUI took!

I don't wish infertility on anyone, it's unbearably painful and affects all areas of your life. I hope my story gives you hope if you are in a similar situation!!!

BTW... it was worth every penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
