Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
FET IVF SUCESS 5 Day Blast!!
What a journey. First of all, no one symptom set me off. I have had my hopes up in the last 2 years only to be let down when AF arrived. I am beyond grateful, and so hopeful for a successful 9 months of pregnancy.
This was our first round of IFV. We did a FET because I overstimulated during our egg retrieval. Out of 37 retrieved,28 fertilized, and 17 made it to day 5/6. We transferred one 5 day embryo grade 4AAA. I prayed, and wished, and hoped, and now I can’t beleive it happened. On to symptoms-
2-3dp5dt- lots of pulling and light/medium cramps. The pulling started on the left side and proceeded to move to the middle and right side. My stomach felt really tight like if I sneezed it felt like I pulled a muscle. SO MANY DIZZY SPELLS. This may have been my #1 symptom. I would be driving and then come to a stop sighn and then BAM it would hit me. I had to hold on to my counter on day 6pt for fear of falling over. Sore throat and stuffy nose. Crazy dreams.
3-10dp5dt: Same as above but add in some light nausea. It feels more like being car sick to me than stomach bug sick. Like when your reading in the back seat of a car. Also my nipples got bigger and darker on 7dpt. On 8dpt my nipples got very sensitive and I actually flinched taking off my bra. More hungry than usual for sure. I wasn’t going to test until BETA but the morning of BETA husband convinced me to take a pregnancy test so we could find out together.
I always second guessed myself. I just figured some of these were from progesterone and estrogen( and they may have been.) The one thing that gave me hope was the 5 days leading up to transfer when I was on all of my medications I had no unusual symptoms. No cramps or sore breast or nausea. So when I started to feel these things it gave me a little hope. I prayed so often and so hard. I am So so so grateful for this outcome.
