I am 34 and this was my second IVF. My first one ten years ago resulted in a BFP (triplets) then I a had a total SURPRISE bfp in 2004. After TTC again on our own, we learned not only did I have PCOS, Endometriosis but also blocked tubes. DH's SA was ok by HMO guidelines but we ended up having "rescue" ICSI done as his count was really low the day of egg retrevial. He had his appendix removed two weeks prior and the fever and infection they believe lowered his count. Here are my symptoms
We had ER done on 11/23 and ET on 11/26. It took seven days from transfer before any symptoms other than cramps began. If I am calculating it correctly that would be 10dpo right?
10dpo-mild heartburn, gassy and no cravings for anything sweet or chocolately.
11dpo-Worse heartburn, like reflux in my throat and mouth, craving chips, doritos, cheetos, no desire for chocolate.
12dpo-took an answer got a def line in about 1 minute, very gassy, huge veins across my chest, bbs and even down my arms.
13dpo-tested w/answer and it was darker than day before. veins are getting more prominent and running through aereolas. brutal heartburn. co worker decribes me as looking bloated, just as she did the last time i had a bfp and she didnt know about the ivf.
14dpo-tested am and pm. am test darker but def bfp almost right away. called and asked for early beta, RE said no! will have beta at 18dpo.
15dpo-18dpo still no cravings for sweets, nauseated, veins are popping up across my chest, neck, arms, Dh says I look like a human road map. Peeing at night begins and like clockwork when pregnant, regular BM.
Beta at 18dpo=691
Beta at 20dpo=1897
U/S at 7 weeks showed one baby w/hb of 178.
