I just got my BFP yesterday and wanted to share my symptoms.
When I was looking through your site (which is awesome) there were only a few IVF stories, so I wanted to add to it.
My story is this:
This was my first attempt at IVF after learning that I had a bi-cornial uterus about a year ago and that the eggs weren't reaching the the tubes/uterus every month.
I did a 5 day grow with a freeze in between (as opposed to a fresh cycle).
Funny story was on Tuesday, 8 DPT, I decided to take a test that night, I told myself I wouldn't count it because it was night, it was early and my tests were expired from when I was trying naturally, So I peed on a stick and it was instant positive, BUT - when I checked the box I had accidently used an Ovulation stick!!! (when you read below you'll see that air-head is listed as a symptom - this is an example). But then I was curious why it had been positive since it tests LH not HCG. I went to peeonastick.com and read that LH and HCG are almost identical hormones and that actually an ovulation test will read positive for both ovulation AND pregnancy, tho obviously its recommended to use them for their own purpose. This gave me hope, so the next morning I took the correct test (9 DPT) and it was positive. Granted the test was expired so I just used it as a hint and waited for my blood test. It was funny that I accidently grabbed the wrong pee stick that ended up leading me to my BFP!
I was implanted on Monday 6/2 - I will count 6/3 as 1DPT
1DPT - nothing
2 DPT - nothing really, just noticed that when I needed to eat nothing really sounded good. I ended up eating and it had a funny sour taste. I would normally think that's too early to feel anything, but these symptoms ended up persisting
3DPT - Back at work. NOTHING sound good to eat. I thought food aversions was if pickles sounded gross or something, but in this case I couldn't find anything I wanted to eat, but I had to eat because I also had this pit of emptiness in my belly, almost burning it felt so empty. (also note that I could have the flu and still be hungry or want to eat, food aversion has never been a normal issue, ever.)
4DPT - still having food aversion, pit of emptiness every four hours, food tasted sour like pickles were in it, my DH thought I was crazy, starting to feel pretty tired. I think this was the night too, that I started having RLS wake me up at night, restless leg syndrome. Normally I only get that when I take some cold medicine or something, but this would be the beginning of 6 straight nights of waking up to RLS, which is VERY unusual for me
5DPT - Food aversion, pit of emptiness, tired, and this was the day I thought it was ALL OVER. I had cramps and indigestion just like my period, and I only get that kind of indigestion with my period and I thought for sure it was coming. I talked to the nurse the next day and she told me it was normal, and didn't mean anything either way, those symptoms ended up going away. then that night again, RLS
6DPT - still had some cramping but it subsided as the day went on, Food aversion, pit of emptiness, tired and starting to be a little air headed, out of it, felt a tinge in my left breast, which made me happy because I kept reading that as a symptom, but that never really developed into anything I would call a symptom, had RLS that night
7DPT - Food aversion, pit of emptiness, tired, air head, RLS that night
8DPT - nothing too strong today, just some food aversion, maybe a little pit of emptiness, RLS at night
9DPT - So tired I can see straight, food aversion, pit of emptiness, really air headed, RLS
10 DPT - feeling breasts hurt a little more, tired, airheaded, food aversion, pit of emptiness, NO RLS! (Yeay!) POSITIVE TEST FROM doc, HCG was 365
That's it! Thanks!
