So, a little background I am 27, dh is 28. We have been married just over eight years and have two boys (5 & 3) conceived with no medical help. After my second son, I was on the patch, however due to certain circumstances with migraine meds I went onto the depo shot because the migraine meds made the patch less likely to work.
So fast forward, I only had two shots - one in sept of 2015 and a second in dec of 2015. After the second shot we decided that when it would be out of my system (about six months from December) then we would be ready to try for our third. Well June of 2016 came and I had a period. We weren't tracking ovulation but I knew I ovulated around cd 18 Bc I have always had a 32 day cycle, like clockwork. No prior issues conceiving both my boys - first month with my oldest, third month trying with my second. Due date for my period came and went. Took a pregnancy test, BFN.
Went to my ob, he said wait a few more weeks, if nothing by September then come in. So we waited throughout the rest of July and all of august. No period. Went in and he decided to start my period with medroxyprogesterone. Two weeks later I had a period, tracked with ovulation tests. My body tried to ovulate and failed. Jump started my period in October, same thing. Same for November. December we jump started again and my body didn't even bother to try to ovulate. Same for January 2017. Finally we decided clomid would be the way to go. So, my period came Jan 29th and I took clomid days 5-9 at 50 msg. We bd every other day after the last day of clomid until cd 17 when I finally got a positive ovulation test, so we bd 17 and 18, by cd18 pm the surge was gone.
So, at cd23 got my progesterone checked and it was 14! I Finally ovulated!!!!
So, my symptoms:
Cd 15-cd19 bad ovulation cramps. Both sides. It was bad, hurt to bd, told dh to take it easy.
1dpo constipation and gas
3 dpo same
7dpo still the same, but some cramping and tired
8dpo same as 7
9dpo still comstipated,gassy, cramping a little more, tired, and headaches. Are my nipples getting darker? Also had a hot flash and dizzy spell...implantation?
10dpo const. gassy, tired, more hungry. Wake up starving and I don't do breakfast. Got nauseous near fresh seafood in the grocery store. What? I love seafood. Must be the progesterone I've been taking 2xs a day since ovulation. And extra cm...hmmm not sure.
11dpo my nose is smelling more..sweaty kid in the hair cut place making me feel sick. Still constipated and gassy. Bloated, some pinching and pulling. Stupid progesterone.
12dpo nurse said should start by now and it hasn't, take internet cheapie with fmu just get it over with. Come back ten minutes later...is that a line? Yell to my dh who doesnt believe me. Run to the store to get more tests, just a basic Kroger brand with a line, grab digital too but waiting a few more days for using those Bc it's a faint line. Get home and take the Kroger test and another internet cheapie, yup BFP!! Still faint but it's there!
13dpo test again with fmu with ic, getting darker! Bloods this morning and waiting for results.
A lot of these signs were signs for progesterone and clomid, so I thought it was not our cycle. Especially since I had no implantation bleeding which I had with my first two, and no confusing stomach bug wanna be after implantation. So I thought this cycle was a bust, but it wasn't!!! Have hope ladies!!
