I, too, have been a frequent, and I mean FREQUENT visitor to this site for a long time. Every month I pretty much convinced myself I had all the symptoms...only to feel that same old disappointment when AF came along. I would think of it as a silver lining, though, because having PCOS you know it's a blessing even to be getting a period every month, so at least something is going right, I thought. But, still...that BFP remained elusive. I began feeling like it really would never happen.
More background...I'm thin with PCOS, no hirsutism, ovulate every month, no weight problems, no insulin resistance, nada, just tiny cysts on ovaries and irregular cycles. I was also told that my Prolactin was ever so slightly high, and was put on Bromocriptine, which I've taken for the last three months.
What I did different this month:
1. Used Pre-seed for the first time (I had a LEEP procedure performed once and I notice I never see EWCM, so I began to think that may be the problem).
2. Stopped drinking all alcohol and cut down on caffeine.
3. Was fairly lazy, cut out my running, and switched to long walks.
4. Prayed, by my definition.
5. Continued taking Bromocriptine for elevated Prolactin.
1-5 DPO: I don't think I noticed too much besides creamy CM, mild cramping, and some slight breast pain on the side of the right. Big appetite, which is fairly unusual.
6 DPO: Eating like crazy. Very gassy. My boyfriend was laughing at me. Begin to get really sleepy early in the evening.
7-8 DPO: AF-like cramps, breast tenderness, identical to PMS from the month before. I get a nagging headache in the evening, and this is a big sign for me. I was PG once before, but had an early m/c, and I remember getting a headache. Super faint positive on an internet cheapie in the afternoon! I am not convinced. Crazy vivid dreams.
9 DPO: Same as day before, take another test, line is darker, but still so faint. Dreams continue I dream that I have a BFP on a digital.
10 DPO: Take EPT digital first thing in the morning - BFP! Still cramping and sore boobs. Headache continues, start to feel warm like I might at the beginning of getting the flu.
Hoping and praying that this one stays with us. :)
**The really funny thing is that I was going to go in for an IUI next cycle with my RE. She said to call her this month when my cycle started. Instead I called her with a BPF**
Do not lose heart, life will find a way.
