I can't believe we finally got our BFP! Fingers crossed it sticks!! It has been a very long 18months for us ttc and we finally got our positive blood test today!
My husband has very poor morphology/ motility and there was basically no chance we would conceive naturally. This was our 2nd IVF cycle, our 1st IMSI ( last cycle was ICSI). We had a 1 blastocyst, day 5 transfer, so I'll start the symptoms there:
5dpo- 36.4, nothing out of the ordinary, still a bit sore from egg retrieval So drinking LOTS of water so basically going to the bathroom constantly the entire 2ww.
6dpo- 36.7, woke at 2am with sharp stabbing pains in my uterus area that lasted about 20sec, nothing like af pains, they completely took my breath away. Happened again about 1 pm and then again at about 10pm. Bbs getting big and sore. Diarrhea.
7dpo-37.0, hot flashes and bbs continue to grow, only sore on edges and sensitive nipples. Diarrhea again.
8dpo- 36.8, continue to feel hot with headaches on and off. More Diarrhea.
9dpo- 36.9, sharp shooting pains in my vagina! It happened twice during the day and they have continued much lighter on and off. Light dizziness when walking. Headaches. Now I'm constipated!!
10dpo- 36.9, hot flashes and dizziness when walking, headaches. Bbs still sensitive and sore. Still constipated!
11dpo- 36.9, headaches and dizziness when walking, starting to feel tired! Several bm's which is unusual.
12dpo- 36.8, headaches and dizziness when walking, really getting tired now. My heart races and I get out of breath climbing up 10 stairs! Not like me at all! Several bm's.
13dpo- 36.8, dizziness when walking, bbs no longer sore or sensitive unless I really push them..... Thought that symptoms going away must be a bad sign! Still getting exhausted with minimal activities. Tired early at night. Several bm's.
14dpo- 36.9, really lethargic all day, don't do very much but still slightly dizzy and light headed with movement. Several bm's.
15dpo- 36.8, tired early, starving when I went to bed after big dinner a couple of hours before. Light headedness. Several bm's. A little hint of nausea when hungry.
16dpo- 36.8, blood test hcg 248!! Can't believe it! I was actually shaking when the nurse told me!! Quite crampy and hungry today. Just a little bit of nausea when hungry.
Due 11th November! I hope its sticks for a happy and healthy baby! It just goes to prove you don't need a bbt that constantly rises, or symptoms that increase during the 2ww.....that surprised me because I thought I was out for those two reasons alone!
The best of luck to everybody trying!! I wish every one of you the happiness I'm feeling right now! I never thought we'd see this day!
