I'm so excited here is my story:
Me & my hubby were trying for 2 yrs! In Jan 2012 our doctor organized for us to see a fertility specialist. I really had to push my doctor as she kept saying it will happen your young! We got called in to see the specialist did the tests in May & was called back in June and was told that for my age 30 I had a low egg reserve & was told we did not have long to hang around.
We did 3 months of gonal f injections with timed intercourse-did not work
Then we did 2 iui's in September & Oct they did not work & was told not do to any more iui's & move on to ivf.
We did our ivf in Jan this year I always found the injections fine
8 eggs were retrieved 6 fertilized when it came to the 5 day transfer on the Friday we had 1 great emybryo & one good one so we put two back. There was none left to freeze!
I took it easy that day but the following days I went on as normal without lifting anything heavy. Went back to work the following week. The nurse told me I could do the test on Wed Feb 6th. It was a long wait towards the end. I decided to do it the eve before I was due to test! It was day 32 of my cycle I have never had a cycle longer then 31. I wanted to do it before my hubby came home from work as I didn't think it would be positive. I was so nervous doing the test I was shakin. I left it for 10mins & was afraid to go back in to check it. I could not believe it when I saw, 2 red lines. I'm still in shock to be honest. As one girl said on her post, it's not over until it's over. So even if you think your getting your af, you may not be!
So here are my symptoms:
On the Tuesday morning, I was woken up by terrible cramps (was not worried as I thought it was too early to be af cramps even though they usually start 10 days before). I was taking the vaginal progesterone from that Tuesday to the Friday I was extremely gassy & my stomach was so bloated. I looked like I was 4 months pregnant my stomach was so bloated this is a side effect of the progesteone.
All week I had extremely bad pains which felt like af cramps but worse. I did think I was getting af.
My boobs were kinda off sore but that is another side effect.
The only thing out of the norm for me was the whole week my nose was not runny but "watery" which I did think was weird.
I was pale, still am but this usually happens when getting my af. Also the Sunday I was shopping & saw tomatoes & wanted them! I never eat tomatoes & did think this was strange. I ate the tomato that eve on its own.
The only thing that gave me hope was the stories on here about girls getting cramps but were pregnant.
I honestly did not think I was pregnant until I did the test.
I was dreading telling my hubby it had not worked. I had told my mum it hadn't, she said it will say your prayers & it will be positive.
I prayed constantly before the ivf, I believe it was god that made it happen in the end.
Recite this prayer & believe it will happen.
