Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 18 months
Wow, I never thought I'd be able to share my story here! My husband and I started our journey to conceive in July of 2016-. After a year of failed attempts we saw a fertility specialist that gave us "unexplained infertility" (wtf!). We decided to start with IUI since everything appeared to be working as it should. After a failed IUI in October of 2017 we decided to wait until after the holidays (I was an emotional mess!). We had our 2nd IUI on Feb 1st (Clomid and Ovidrel). Immediately this one seemed different. In October the doctor said my uterus was moving alot and had trouble inserting the Cath, the procedure took longer than expected and just didny feel right. This time around he was in and out before my husband could blink! The day of my IUI I had some pretty heavy cramping. Sex after the IUI wasn't enjoyable as I almost felt bruised, but we pushed through! I tried not to get my hopes up this time around as I know the medications can mimic pregnancy, but I did notice a few things! My breasts were super tender and heavy to the point I was holding them walking down my stairs. About a week or so after my IUI I had a cluster of 3 large zits on my face. I never break out so this was a new symptom. I also had mild twinges and cramping starting about 9 days piui. With that came the exhaustion. I normally don't nap but I coukd barely keep my eyes open mid afternoon. I broke the cardnial rule and tested early. Sunday, Monday and Wednesday's tests were all negative . Doctor said I could test Saturday but I felt pretty down and was almost 100% sure my symptoms were due to the meds. This am I decided to test to be safe and to my suprise it gave a clear pink line immediately. We will call Monday to schedule our BETA. Fingers crossed all stays well!!
