Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Getting our rainbow

Of course I have been stalking this page for almost 2 years. I finally get to post mine and I am SO excited!!!!
We got pregnant back in May of this year (2017) but we lost that baby in July, on my husband's birthday. Since then, I have had 2 IUI's....the 2nd worked. I did not trigger an I did not take any progesterone before or after the IUI. I was on clomid 100mg on CD3-7. We BD'd on CD10, 14, 15, 16. I o'd on CD 15 and did the IUI on the same day

*O day- Got the positive OPK in the morning and had the IUI at 4 that afternoon (11.22 (the day before Thanksgiving) cramping after the IUI
*3-5DPIUI-My nipples feel like they are going to fall off. THEY HURT!!!! Not the entire breast, just the nipple. I am wondering what's going on because I KNOW it's way too early for pregnancy symptoms. Still cramping but now they are dull and in the background. If I had to guess, I would say they were in my uterus.
*6DPIUI-still cramping and my nipples are still sore. Like, I couldn't hug my kids without tremendous in pain. Still crampy. Constipated.
*7DPIUI- took my first test...BFN with FRER, walmart first signal and internet cheapie. I'm thinking it's still really early so I didn't really get upset about the negative. My appetite has increased, but that happens as it gets close to my period so i don't think anything of. I am gassier than usual. Nipples still hurt. Still crampy
*8-9DPIUI- took a test (internet cheapie)...BFN nipples are still sore but not as bad as it before. This has me worried. I am thinking "If I were pregnant, my symptoms would be increasing, not decreasing." very emotional. Secretly loosing hope but still telling myself that it's still early
*10DPIUI- tested with an internet cheapie. BFN. nipples have gone from sore to tender. EXTREMELY emotional. Cried over small stuff, things that i would not normally cry over (example: the dishwasher had not been unloaded). Appetite is still increased. My dog started following me around and being clingy. She would not let me out of her sight
*11DPIUI- tender nipples still have those dull cramps in my lower abdomen area. It feels like my uterus. BFN on FRER and internet cheapie. I cried today. Still feeling out this month because I feel like "I should have more symptoms by now" and "the last time, by this time, i had a BFP already" and "it seems like everybody else has gotten their BFP days ago"
*12DPIUI- decided not to test. I didn't think that I I could handle seeing another negative. I had a complete breakdown wondering when my time was coming. short tempered and very emotional. My beta was scheduled for today but I cancelled because I didn't want to pay ($40 copay) for my doctor to tell me that I am not pregnant. Just an emotional day
*13DPIUI- Decided at the last moment to test...faint positive on the first signal test. Tried FRER using the same sample (FMU)...faint positive. Tested again using SMU on a first signal, darker line. Went to the store and bought 2 boxes of clearblue digitals, 1 box (3 count) FRER, 5 first signal tests. Clearblue gave me those words that I have been waiting SO long to see....PREGNANT. Went in for a blood test to confirm. HCG was at 29. Progesterone as at 24. By my calculations, I am 3 weeks and 5 days today. The doctor says I don't need to be on any progesterone supplement as of now. I go back in on Thursday to make sure my HCG has doubled as it should.

I forgot to add that I took Robitussin on cd 10-15

FX for HH9!!! I was so nervous reading your post. Such wonderful news at the end. Keep us posted on your beta

THANK YOU!!!
I had my beta on Thursday and it as at 79.2. So far, everything is looking good. I have a sono scheduled for Dec 21. We had a c/p last month and before that, the m/c so we have never made it that far so we are VERY excited about that.
Why were you nervous reading the post?
