After being diagnosed with high FSH and several failed IUIs and Clomids we had our DD via IVF in August 2011. We figured we would have to go the same route for #2. DD is 16 mos and I am still Breastfeeding. I have had a pretty regular period for about 5 mos so we decided to at least give it a try each cycle in hopes I wouldn't have to go through IVF again. And this month (after 3 months of actively trying) we got our BFP. I am still in shock but have been tracking closely so here were my symptoms leading up to today. In general, it really felt like I was just PMS with typical cramps leading up to my BFP.
I typically ovulate later in my cycle and noticed the increased CM on CDs 15-18. On CDs 19-22 I had ovary pains on my right side and increased CM. We BD'd on CD's 20 and 21.
1 DPO: Ovary pains on both sides
2 DPO: Ovary Pains and slightly sore boobs. Usually my boobs get REALLY sore when she nurses after I Ovulate so I figured I maybe didn't ovulate this month. Now I am wondering if that was the sign that it actually took!
3 DPO: Mild cramps, boobs are fine, constipated
4 DPO: A few mild cramps and some ovary pain but not much else, constipated
5 DPO: Mild cramps and lower back pain, mild ovary twinges, constipated
6 DPO: Cramps and lower back pain on and off, mild ovary twinges, constipated
7 DPO: Cramps and lower back pain on and off, mild ovary twinges, constipated
8 DPO: Cramps and lower back pain on and off, mild ovary twinges, constipated
9 DPO: Cramps and lower back pain on and off, mild ovary twinges, constipated, very tired, gassy
10 DPO: Cramps - sometimes stronger. Stomach twinges/pulls

12 DPO: Cramps and lower back pain - pretty constant. Very Tired. Feels like period is imminent. Slightly sore nipples.
13 DPO: Cramps, Super vivid dreams, lower back pain - fairly constant but sometimes intermittent. No longer constipated. Sore nipples a bit when DD nursed in the night and AM. Went away in the day.
14 DPO: Cramps - sometimes severe. Pretty constant and dull cramps all day. And some lower back pain. Nipples were not that sore.
15 DPO: Cramps all the time, lower back pain, constipated again
16 DPO: Cramps all the time, some severe (but seem gas related)
17 DPO: BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep the faith! Good Luck to all!
