BFP & Unsolicited Rant

Hi Ladies

If you’ve read my blog on this site then you already know I miscarried 3 cycles ago at 7 weeks and was then diagnosed in short order with mild PCOS, ureaplasma and male factor issues of 78% “irregular” sperm by World Health Organization’s standards. Throw into the mix that my father was battling late stage pancreatic cancer since last year and you’ll understand how (un)well I was faring.

My dad passed away earlier this week before I got to tell him that I’m pregnant again, but I’d like to tell you all, because I know how much reading these stories has meant to me over the last year, in times of both hope and despair.

The number one thing I want to put out there is that I was extremely stressed out and unhappy this month, had given up on this cycle and even had a perscription filled for Femara to start the cycle after I’d take antibiotics for the ureaplasma.

I was still devastated following my blighted ovum miscarriage in early March. In fact, I was experiencing a new degree of emotional rock bottom during the days that sperm likely met egg. All this to say: when people chide women for being stressed during TTC and order them to relax in that weirdly condescending tone I know you’ve all heard, tell them, silently or otherwise, to go fuck themselves.

Empirical experience has shown me that conception is the product of timing, hormonal balance, whatever fertility assists you’re using (be they Western medicine, TCM, Santeria or whatever you ascribe to) and sheer dumb luck.

Don’t let the that patriarchal line of thinking about stress being a “conception hinderance” guilt you or convince you that you’re sabotaging your own BFP. I don’t buy that nonsense anymore. Women get pregnant during wartime and in captivity and under unthinkable conditions. So as if the factor being a woman doesn’t offer enough challenges to begin with, we are then scolded for not somehow being serene enough while we toil towards our fertility goals. It’s normal feel frustrated and scared and isolated in this process. It *is* depressing. We’re gonna feel what we’re gonna feel. Time to shift our notion of psychological accountability while TTC, methinks.

Onto the dirty details. The what-when-how-where of products and practices.

Without further ado:

Stuff That Probably Helped This Time

All month:

•Bayer prenatal supplements
•folic acid (in addition to the prenatals’ folic content)
•4 capsules of fish oil
•C0Q10 supplement
•selenium supplement
•saint John’s wort supplements
•2 drops daily of Woodstock brand “Women’s Repro Formula” (contains vitex, maca and all the usual suspects, $21)
•probiotics twice daily with meals

CD1 through ovulation:

• red clover supplement
• evening primrose oil supplement
• expensive-ass deer antler tea 2-3 times daily (basically you soak it in a clay pot, strain that water and drink it and then add new water, simmer it for an hour, drink THAT and then if you’re feeling like a champ add more water for a final hour long simmer and drink that, too) actually I stuck to this regimen from CD1 til about 5DPO when I ran out and was too broke to buy more... but we’ll never know if it was this potion that tipped the scale

“Mechanical” aid:

• Wandflo OPK’s ordered online from Amazon
• a small amount of preseed injected as close as possible to cervix right before intercourse followed by
• softcup smeared with preseed directly after sex, that be left in for 12 hours
• sorry for TMI but I tried to give myself an orgasm right after inserting the softcup each time (no, my partner didn’t do it lol) because they claim that the contractions cause “upsuck” (ew this word)
• weekly acupuncture
• not in the shower = wearing socks no matter what

Stuff I avoided:

• caffeine (so coffee, tea and chocolate)
• alcohol
• hot baths

Other things I think helped:

• I had an HSG test late autumn 2017 and I had never been pregnant. In the days following it some “debris” and mucus unlike anything I’d seen in that, uh, zone, seemed to be dislodged. I think the HSG might’ve cleared the pipes to an extent that they weren’t before. I’ve conceived for the first time in my whole life since then, which may tell us something about that procedure

• my partner and I timed intercourse every other day from the first day my bleeding stopped until a few days after the OPK’s started to darken. By the way, he was also under instruction from the doctor not to masturbate because it’s thought to compromise sperm count

• my partner started consistently taking a men’s multivitamin, selenium, folic acid, C0Q10, fish oil, selenium and fenugreek supplements every day starting about 3 months ago (they say it takes about 3 months to “build” fresh sperm that reach maturity and are ready to do their job

BFP after m/c with PCOS - IUI, trigger & femara

This was my second iui/trigger/femara cycle, I did iui 24 hours after trigger (honestly I thought this was too early go figure). I’ve done previous cycles without iui and clomid and none were successful. This go round I delayed taking a test b/c I just knew I was out. Low and behold we got our bfp 17 days post iui!!!! I even waited a bit to share my bfp story because it’s still surreal. I am currently sitting at over 7 weeks and got a good strong heartbeat at our 6 weeks ultrasound. Needless to say I cried like a baby when I heard the heartbeat (our first cycle we had a bfp but nothing at our first US not even a sac). I honestly didn’t have many symptoms other than a missed period and slightly sore boobs. We are apprehensive about telling even close family until we at least get to our week 11 US but excited nonetheless and can’t wait to scream it from the rooftops. I just want to take the time to say to my fellow pcos’ers or anyone who needs to hear, if it happened for me it can happy for you. Lots of baby dust and healthy full term pregnancy wishes to all. ☺️

Finally a bfp after 3 miscarriages in 5 Years

Hi my name is Kay and I’m 34 Years with pcos. I promised myself I will write here once I get my bfp. 3years back Had a ruptured ectopic and lost my left tube. Got pregnant again 6 months later but had a DnC for blighted ovum. Luckily got pregnant 6 months later sadly DnC again for another blighted ovum. Made a conscious decision to lower carbs and sugar, do fertility yoga, drink red raspberry tea, ABC juice ( doc recommended) , Chinese herbs with accpunture and homeopathy, clomid, preseed and lots and lots of prayers. Was basically willing to try anything in the last 3 months we had given ourselves to “try”. In the 2ww I had pineapple core 1-5 dpo, 4 Brazil nuts, chicken essence and red date tea. 2 weeks after my birthday felt like I had a glow on my face that I’ve only seen each time I was pregnant. Took the test and it’s a bfp! Was in shock and a bit scared of another BO. Doc put me on progesterone suppositories, baby aspirin , 5 mg folic acid ( which I was already taking) high dose fish oil and hcg injections twice a week. Had gone in for a scan and just saw a beautiful baby at 6 weeks 3 days with a beating heart. Hope this gives someone else hope the same way I had hope reading all these bfp stories full on happiness and faith. Hope all get their bfp soon and baby dust to all.
Ps the symptoms I have sore breast, slight nausea randomly, tmi watery cm , no appitite , bitter taste in mouth, dizzy spells and moving between fatigue and insomnia.

BFP after 2 1/2 years

Background story for anyone who is in a similar position:

Husband and are 29, had two children twelve months apart at age 25 and 26! Each time were conceived with no problems and in less than three months. After I had my second child, I did not prevent, but was breastfeeding, even though my cycles returned at 8 weeks postpartum. Had normal cycles for a year but didn't get pregnant. Went for my yearly exam (2nd baby now 1 year old) and my dr. thought something might be wrong given the fact that we do not use birth control. Took blood work and found that I had low progesterone, and my dr. hoped I would be pregnant again within 3 months with progesterone supplementation. didn't happen. started charting and observing my cycles and realized I did indeed have low progesterone as evidence by a 10 day luteal phase. then cut out gluten and dairy, as suggested by my dr. and continued progesterone supplements. Improved to 12 day luteal cycles. after another 3 months, and continued charting, my dr. suggested possible lean PCOS and wanted to confirm ovulation. Did a follicular study, observed successful ovulation, but noted that one ovary was one cm bigger than the other. After 3 more months, my dr. suggested continued avoidance of gluten and dairy, but also now low carb diet, basically paleo. Still NOTHING! In November 2017 I opted to have a lap to check things out. Before the surgery we tried 2 rounds of clomid, but to no avail! During the surgery, my dr. found that my ovaries were 4 times the size they should be, indicating PCOS, I had a small amount of endo, and clear tubes. My dr. performed a bilateral ovarian wedge resection and used excision to remove the endometriosis and stressed for me to continue to eat paleo/low carb, and continue exercising. At this point I ate no more than 75 carbs a day and ran 4-5 days a week. three months after the surgery, I was still not pregnant! But saw an improvement of symptoms from the surgery (hair growth, low anxiety, better ovulation). We checked my progesterone and it indicated that I was ovulating, but it was not strong enough for implantation. (above a 5, lower than 10). We tried 2.5 mg femara in the fourth month after surgery, in addition to progesterone supplements at 3 DPO and no monitoring or injections. AND IT WORKED!!!!

As difficult as it was to battle infertility, I am so grateful to have found that my body was not functioning properly and I can fix it with diet and exercise. Lean PCOS comes with its own hardship... you cannot just lose weight to improve symptoms. The mechanism of hormonal communication is broken. I attribute everything to the wise surgery my dr. did for me, and to God who truly does everything in His own time.

BFP- 1st Time TTC with PCOS (unmedicated)

Hey ladies! I have been stalking these boards and figured I NEEDED to share my story to give some of you a little bit of hope :)

Back story, I have PCOS (unmedicated but completely made a lifestyle change with eating and exercise) so I literally have no idea when/if I ovulate. My daughter is 19 months old so DH and I decided we would start trying for number 2, in case it took a while. Well here I am a day after my BFP in shock!

BD CD 8,11,13,15 (“o” cd 15 based on ovary pain!)

1 and 2 DPO- weird pinching on right side of uterus that only lasted seconds each time but took my breath away each time

3-6 DPO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

7 DPO- extreme back pain, couldn’t walk and had to use heating pad

8 DPO- woke up with painful pubic bone (like I had been hit in it)

9 DPO- same

10 DPO- sore pubic bone, cramps, achy hips more back pain but lower and slight nausea and none of these are PMS Symptoms so I thought, hmmmm maybe I am pregnant and test... BFN

11 DPO- I’m a stay at home mom so when my LO took a nap, I passed out for TWO HOURS!!! I never nap but thought it negative so I must be getting sick or trying to fight something bc I still felt nauseous on and off.
That night, had really weird pinching on the right side of my belly button

12 DPO- sleepless night. Can’t feel cervix, less crampy, lots of pinches in my uterus, still slightly nauseous

13 DPO- same exact symptoms. my brother was coming in from the Air Force and I wanted to have a drink with dinner so I tested. BFN

14 DPO- bright red spot and brown spotting and so crampy ( I definitely thought I was out bc I always spot a few days before every period) so I took Aleve and packed some maxi pads

15 DPO- no spotting only brown discharge when checking cervix which is weird bc I always get brown stuff in the toilet when peeing which spotting (sorry for the TMI but I always look for details when reading these posts!)

16 DPO- (BFP)SUPER CRAMPY. Back and hips but nothing in my from area where I normally would get cramps (thought ok, I know I’m getting my period, but if I don’t wake up with it I’ll test tomorrow) wellllll I had a cup of coffee at 2pm and by 3pm I thought I was gonna vomit everywhere. This was my first sign looking back when I was pregnant with my daughter. I went to the store, bought a test, used it in their bathroom, put it in my pocket and checked in the car. The blue dye was smudged and not even a control line showed. I went home and thought how if I were pregnant, I might not have to wait for FMU so I walked down to my local pharmacy, came home peed after only holding it for 1 hour and IMMEDIATELY BFP!!!!!!!! I was shaking and literally couldn’t believe it!

I wanted to share bc I SWORE I was getting my period. Yes I symptom spotted, but as a first timer I thought I was looking for things to feel, if that makes sense. I wrote all of this down so that next month when I tried, I would see it all happens every month.
When I fell pregnant with my daughter, we weren’t trying so I didn’t notice symptoms until I got a BFP and looked back at the two previous days and how coffee made me sick and my nipples hurt. So I thought for sure once my nipples hurt, then I would be pregnant. Wrong! Just crampy and slight nausea

Good luck to all if you ladies! Xxx

13 DPO-

Proved the doctors wrong!

Hi All. I conceived my little belly bean exactly 4 weeks ago today (17th Jan- I'm now technically 6 weeks pregnant), and what a surprise that was. I have very badly polycystic ovaries and had only had a period once every few months for the last 2-3 years, the doctors advised me about 18 months ago that I would probably find it difficult conceiving naturally and that it potentially wouldn't ever happen for me. Anyways January was the first month we had tried... I got a positive OPK on 17th Jan and it was first time lucky, so ner ner doctors! :)
1dpo - Sore boobs started straight away and has got progressively worse every day- it was like hormonal AF boob pain at first but then within 2-3 days became that agonising I couldn't lay on my front or cuddle my other half. I knew I was pregnant from this alone!
3dpo- Felt extremely frisky?!
7dpo- Very bad back ache
8dpo- Extremely emotional and angry fir no reason, bloated, craving ALL the bad foods
9dpo- Absolutely exhausted. Tried a cheap ebay dip pregnancy test knowing it was too early- BFN
10dpo- Other half took me away for a dirty weekend which was ruined by my constant napping- very unlike me and we both knew at this point something was different! I had never felt so tired in my life- this fatigue has also carried on since this point!
11dpo- Cheap dip pregnancy test BFN. We were both a little sad.
12dpo- I just knew I was pregnant. I did tests in the morning and evening and they were negative. I got in the shower after the second test then looked at it again once i'd got out.. there was a very very faint line (almost nothing at all), so I checked others in the bin- they had them too! I convinced myself they were evap lines and me and OH went and bought some better tests. The lines on both these tests were much stronger but still very faint (see pic included)... I sent OH to the shop again for a 5 day early test Clear Blue test. I did that at 4am after waking in the middle of the night and it said not pregnant.
13dpo- I was a little sad all day about the negative result, but still hopeful. I bought a "how many days" test and a standard ClearBlue test. I did the clear blue on my lunch at work and the blue line was there! Pregnant!
14dpo- I did the Clear Blue how many days test in the morning and it said 1-2 weeks pregnant :)

Since finding out for sure the main side effects up to 6 weeks pregnant have been tiredness, cramping, extremely emotional and EXCRUITATING BREASTS. Baby dust to all xxx :)

TTC 18 MONTHS, BFP, PCOS, POOR SPERM MORPHOLOGY & MOTILITY, IUI, Clomid vs. Femara

Writing this post to give hope to those that have both female and male infertility factors. :) This is a long story, so here is a a quick summary if you don't have time to read then entire post:

1. Do not wait a year to go to the doctor if you are having trouble TTC. I have always had irregular cycles, so I knew something was wrong. It was more stressful to not know if there was an issue than it was to know and start down the path to fix it.
2. Do not wait to get a semen analysis done for the same reason as I mentioned above. It's cheap, it's noninvasive, and for most guys, healthy habits can naturally solve this.
3. For better sperm quality, here is the list of vitamins that my doctor prescribed:
Vitamin C: 1000 mg/day
Vitamin D: 2000 IU/day
Vitamin E: 1000 IU/day
Omega 3 Fatty Acids (Fish Oil)- 1000 mg/day
Coenzyme Q10- 400 mg/day
4. I was only on Femara for one month and got pregnant. I was on Clomid for 7 months and had no luck.
5. Do your own research and do not be afraid to switch doctors! I honestly do not think we would have gotten pregnant if we had not switched.

Here is the full story:

We began TTC June 2016.

March 2017- After 9 months of BBT charting, ovulation strips, timed intercourse, I couldn't wait any longer to see a doctor, and it was time for my yearly PAP smear, anyways. After some tests, I was diagnosed with PCOS. I am 5'5 and 117 lbs, so weight was not a symptom for me. I have always had irregular cycles (35 days or more- I skip a cycle at least once a year). I do have mild acne (mostly on my back), some hair loss around my hairline, and I do feel that my legs/bikini area have more hair than normal. The OBGYN ordered an ultrasound, which did not show cysts, and blood work, which was normal, however my progesterone was on the low side. So the OBGYN diagnosed me with PCOS and started me on Metformin (500 mg starting 1 X day, build up tolerance to take 2 x day), and Clomid (50 mg). Metformin did give me headaches/nausea the first couple of months, but that did finally go away and I started taking it 2 x day without symptoms. My acne has gotten better, but that's the only difference I've noticed.

June 2017- After TTC on Metformin/Clomid for 3 months, DH had a semen analysis (SA). It showed that he had abnormal morphology- 0% of his sperm were normal shaped, and the motility was also low. He started taking FertilAid and did a repeat SA in a month, the morphology had improved to 1%, and his motility was in the normal range, but on the low end. There is no varicocele. It was very shocking because my husband is also slim, works out, has never has done a drug in his life, rarely drinks- just overall healthy. He is an autobody painter, so it is possible that a toxin is causing this issue- but he does take safety precautions (wearing masks, gloves, working in a well ventilated area), so not sure- it could be genetic? But after some research, we found out there is not much you can do to improve morphology, so at this point we were feeling very hopeless. It was our low point in this process.

August 2017- Our next step was an HSG to see if my tubes were open, and they were. This gave us hope that we could go the IUI route. (Side note: the HSG was painful for me, but the painful part only lasted like 30 seconds, so it is very manageable!) Also- I skipped my period this month, while taking Metformin/Clomid (this tells me that I may have been resistant to Clomid).

September 2017- After skipping a period, once I did start, I was bumped up to 100 mg Clomid. We had IUI #1, which did not work. The doctor told us that we should try the IUI 3 times, and if it didn't work, then we should move on to IVF.

October 2017- We had IUI #2, which also did not work, but this is when things start to get good!

My coworker had been TTC for 1 year and also was diagnosed with PCOS. She had been to another fertility specialist that had prescribed her with Femara instead of Clomid (previously she had taken Clomid & miscarried). She had just found out that she was pregnant after one month of being on the Femara! The fertility specialist that I was seeing would not prescribe Femara (since it is not FDA approved for use in treating infertility and because there was a study that showed an increase in birth defects- do you own research on this/ask your doctor). I decided to switch to the fertility specialist that my coworker was going to.

Also, I stopped taking Clomid at this point, so I was on it for a total of 7 months (April- October). My husband was also discouraged and stopped taking the FertilAid supplements (the doctor actually told him that the vitamins weren't helping in a very rude manner but that's another story!)

IUI to AF to BFP

I cannot believe I finally get to submit my BFP story!! EEEK

History on DH and I: I am 26 and he is 27. I have minor history of PCOS (one cyst once and told PCOS) and elevated Prolactin (highest recorded: 61). DH has low numbers (<10 million pre wash) and low motility (<20% pre wash). We have been trying to conceive for 3 years. We were put on 3 rounds of clomid (May, June, and August 2017) with no pregnancy success but had positive ovulation tests every time. OBGYN sent us to South Florida IVFMD for further help.

Reproductive Endocrinologist suggested IUI since both hubby and I were below average but not so low to where she suggested IVF. She placed me on synthroid (hypothyroidism runs in my family and my numbers were a little too off for their liking) and I started Femera 12/26/2017. IUI was on 01/05/2018 and 01/06/2018 where DH had a 2.4 million/ 65% post wash sample and 600,000/95% post wash sample. I was instructed to either have a beta done or do a HPT 01/18/2018. However, I started spotting 01/16/2018 and thought for sure I was out. I took a FRER HPT 01/18/2018 and saw the faintest line but only if I held it up to the bathroom light. I thought I was making myself crazy and threw it out. 01/20/2018, I starting bleeding very heavily, bled a medium flow the next day, and had two spots of blood 01/22/2018. I went to the doctor to start our second round of IUI where she did a beta pregnancy test only as a formality. Shockingly, she said I was pregnant (Beta: 26) but was probably losing the baby to miscarriage with all the bleeding I experienced that weekend. She placed me on Progesterone suppositories to stop the bleeding and I took another Beta two days after (Beta: 44). Now that they confirmed that I was still pregnant, they were worried about ectopic pregnancy with the beta not doubling. They ordered another Beta Friday (Beta: 96). NUMBERS MORE THAN DOUBLED!! They are not so worried about ectopic now :) Hopefully our little Peanut will continue to grow happily and healthily. I wanted to share because I want all the women out there to know that weird things can happen and you can be pregnant with all of the situations above and more I'm sure.

What I did in the month of the IUI that may have helped me get pregnant:
Took Prenatal and Vitamin E everyday
The day of the IUIs, DH and I BD and I laid down for the rest of the day.
After the IUI, ate 1/5 pineapple with core for five days. Also, placed a heating pad either on my back or belly throughout the work day. Lastly, I followed chinese medicine and only drank warm fluids, drank lots of water and tea, and had full fat dairy. I also exercised with walking or jogging every day (not a common thing for me).
I also visualized the sperm joining with the egg. I know it sounds weird but some women swear by it and it worked for me :)

Other than normal period symptoms, I did not have any pregnancy symptoms the weeks after IUI.

BFP with PCOS after HSG

It all started when I stopped birth control in December 2016 and didn't get my period for 3 months. So I made an obgyn appointment in February 2017 and was diagnosed with pcos. I was very scared and sad to hear the news as I learned that getting pregnant will now be a more difficult journey and I am 28 years old so I wanted to get things rolling asap. I began by trying the holistic route and going to fertility acupuncture treatments once a week and making the famous pcos smoothie every morning. After 2 months of this I decided I want to start clomid as my obgyn recommend. So in April 2017 I sarted first round of clomid 50mg and of course no ovulation. Took progesterone to get period. Next month started 100mg and did ovulate! I never detected the ovulation on kit at home but ultrasound showed 2 large follicles. But still didn't get pregnant. Next 2 months tried 100mg again and ovulated every time but it didn't work... So my obgyn sent me to an RE. The RE said I need to get a lot of testing done before she can suggest a form of treatment, which would have been the letrazole. So I did a lot of blood work, my husband got tested, and everything came back normal. The next step was the HSG and saline tests. So I scheduled the tests for September 2017. The HSG was painful but very quick whereas the saline test was worst in my opinion! Longer and more painful. Anyways, both ca,e back normal. So the RE said I need to wait fo my period to start so we can start the letrazole and HCG injection treatment. So I waited for my period to come and it never did which is normal for me, so I decided to take progesterone as I had some left from last time. After I took the progesterone for 10 days I still didn't get a period but I had period like cramps. So I decided to take a pregnancy test... BFP!!! I immediately called my husband into the bathroom and we were both in shock! I started crying and pacing because we weren't even trying that month! Of course all the months we tried to conceive like clock work, and it didn't work, but the moment we didn't try at all we get a BFP!! So I just wanted to tell all you pcos ladies out there, don't lose hope! It can happen even without any medication! I'm so happy and beyond excited to have my baby! Good luck to all of you! Kick pcos butt! :-)

13 DPO BFP WITH PCOS ON GLUCOREINHOP

AHH!! Oh my gosh, you guys have helped me get through 4 months of ttc by giving me hope!!! I hope my story can help others the way every story on here helped me!!

Things I believed helped!!
-Megadose on vitamin C the 2 weeks before O
- Glucorein HOP (all natural and safe PCOS treatment that is available on amazon. Please please please do your research on this ladies. This thing is a freakin miracle drug!! Helped my hirituism, acne and weight loss and gave me my periods back! Been on it for 5 months now and the difference in my skin and hair thickness alone is amazing! It's like metformin but ZERO side effects!! And if you're resistant to Clomid this is an EXCELLENT alternative! Please look into it I urge you!!)
-not stressing about it (I know cliche but really!)

Okay now for my symptoms!
1dpo-nothing really
2dpo-slightly sore boobs but I chalk it up to maybe DH having too much fun with them during BD and maybe I didn't notice how rough he might've gotten?
3dpo-goofing around with DH and he grabs my boobs, SO SORE I say "OW!!" Out loud!!!! I push him off and he instantly gasps and says "YOURE PREGNANT!" Look at him and shake my head but then wonder why my boobs are THIS sore, THIS early!! Normally they get sore 5 days before AF but not nearly 2 weeks before!!! Right after he says it I get a shooting pain in what feels like my right ovary
4dpo- CAN YOU SAY EXHAUSTED?? Felt like I couldnt sleep enough! Boobs sore and now nipples getting tender when I put bra on in morning
5dpo- boobs heavy and sore, skin on face is dry and itchy instead of normal slightly oily skin. Odd. SOO sleepy.
6dpo-sore boobs, sore nipples, dryyyy perfect skin! No need to powder my nose anymore! Slept nearly all day!
7dpo-fell asleep at my desk I'm so exhausted even though I've been sleeping nearly constantly. Boobs so so so sore. Emotional at nothing.
8dpo-by now I normally crave spicy fried chicken and chocolate during my PMS week. No cravings! Boobs so heavy and sore now that I can't take bra off after work because it hurts too much! Flawless skin! Hair looks thicker!
9dpo- still no cravings, get snappy with DH for no reason. Sore boobs. Sleepy. Start to get a sore throat and stuffed nose..I blame the weather change but apparently it's a thing!
10dpo- straight up sick. Call into work and sleep all day. No appetite or cravings whatsoever. So thirsty and sore boobs as always haha
11dpo- cramping that felt like very very light af cramps during the early morning. Nose is stuffed and all my lymph nodes are swollen. Low grade fever and sore throat persist. Sore heavy boobs.no appetite only thirst. Got a cramp in left foot.
12dpo-feeling slightly better but still exhausted. No cramping. No pms cravings. No appetite. Moody. Felt pregnant.. like.. I just knew at that point. This was the first cycle I ever had such sore boobs early on and I knew it meant something important. Hair on head thicker than ever. Skin flawless. No usual PMS breakouts! decided to test next morning.
13dpo-almost instantly 2nd pink line pops up next to control line on FRER with FMU!! BFP!!!! so dark! Never thought I'd see the day! Best Christmas gift ever for me and DH

Also throughout whole 2ww I had vivid dreams and towards the end it felt like I was a bloodhound. I could smell everything!!! Metallic taste in mouth set in around 12dpo!!

Good luck ladies!!! I really hope this helps!!!!!
