I am soo excited to announce my BFP. I have been waiting for this for MANY years. I am praying that it sticks! Took a HPT yesterday (2 in fact) and both showed Pregnant, went in to see my fertility clinic, and they confirmed today as well. I am 4weeks1day - HCG level is 443. Hoping that is a good number. When I type in my OV day (Feb. 5th) it says I am in week 5.
I wasn't really symptom spotting this cycle, as I was trying to relax. I have PCOS, been on Clomid, didn't work. Then was switched to Puregon injections this cycle, and TA DAAA.....I was also supposed to go in for my insemination, but we had such a big snow storm, that they closed the clinic. I was really upset/down, thinking - is this a sign? Am i not supposed to have kids? The previous month, I was really sick on my insemination day - so I felt like I lost 2 months worth....so I just BD on CD 15,16,17 (OV Day - CD 17) but wasn't really trying to BD, it just happened that we did (thank god, because my clinic tells us not to BD 2 days before OV day, so it is weird, that we BD'd anyways) and magically, no insemination - and got my BFP this month...first ever. I was also not given Ovidrel this month, like my previous months.
I remember on my OV day, I had a really bad ov pain....and I don't ever remember having that in my previous months at all. I felt that type of pain one time after my insemination, but figured it was to do with the insemination. I had a twinge or 2 during my 2WW, some creamy CM, but nothing I didn't think was normal.
I didn't take any pregnancy tests until 14DPO, because I was SOO scared, as I am used to seeing those BFN's. Mon/Tues of this week, I started with the sore boobies, and AF cramps, in which I always get every month before my period (Which was due this Wed, Feb. 19th) The only thing I thought was different, was that my boobs start to feel better closer to AF, they usually start hurting the week before...but this cycle they were still tender, and are currently still tender!
Other then sore boobies, af craps a day or 2 before expected period, I had no symptoms. So ladies, please don't feel discouraged. I read soooo many of these stories, every month, when I would get my BFN. It truly sucks. But everything happens when it should, and how it should. I had really thought it wasn't going to work this month, because I hadn't done insemination, or taken my Ovidrel shot, etc.
I hope you all get your BFP's sooner rather then later. I prayed alot during this cycle, I am not an overly religious person, but I truly did pray alot during this past cycle.
