Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after IUI #4

I’m 32 and my wife and I have been TTC since October 2017. We decided to use a RE right away since donor sperm is expensive!! The RE checked my labs and flushed my tubes making sure everything was ideal before we started the process. The first two IUI we did without hormones because we were deathly afraid of twins or triplets! 3rd and 4th time we used 50mg clomid x 5 days and triggered with an ovidrel shot. In hindsight I should have just started with hormones because we had more ultrasounds and a better idea of what was happening, and when, instead of guessing based on your period tracker. Also helpful hint (just because you track your periods for months doesn’t really help that much unless you are also tracking your ovulation) Symptoms wise: the first two attempts were the worst. My mind played tricks on me and I was aware of every little gas bubble, breast pain and twinge. The 3rd and 4th times I feel I had a healthy detachment “what will be will be attitude” and couldn’t tell the difference between the hormones and actual pregnancy symptoms. Our 4th IUI was the last of this donor, if it didn’t work the RE recommended we switch. We had our IUI on Valentine’s Day (not as romantic as it sounds) My wife was out of town for work so my best friend took me. Directly after my IUI appointment we went for my BFF’s IUD appointment and then had a Bloody Mary to toast my fertility and her new form of birth control. The two weeks were sooooooo slow and long! But once you get the BFP the real anxiety and panic set in! We are 8 weeks now and cautiously optimistic. Had a viability scan at 6 weeks and saw a flutter of a heart. Wishing everyone the best of luck. Don’t give up.

For women who have undergone IUI. A pregnancy blood test is taken two weeks after insemination. It takes that long for an embryo to attach to the uterine wall and begin secreting enough of the hCG hormone. Or human chorionic gonadotropin, to show up in the test. The presence of this hormone in a woman's blood is the best pregnancy indicator. During the two-week wait, women should follow their doctors' instructions concerning diet and activity, Resolve advises. This often involves avoiding strenuous exercise and staying away from foods with MSG and synthetic sweeteners. In addition, several symptoms indicate a potentially serious problem, and a doctor should be consulted. These include a fever, bright red vaginal bleeding, dizziness, weakness, or abdominal, pelvic, neck or leg pain. Now taht you have confirmed your pregnancy. All the best dear. make sure you look after yourself. Avoid any activities that might bring harm to the unborn baby. All the best love.

Congratulations!

I am sincerely happy for your success. I am usually amazed by the process of the IUI and happy to know this method is available at a very affordable price in Bi o texco m. sperms are normally produced in the testes after puberty (after attainment of characters like the growth of beard, mustache etc). From the testes, they are carried through the sperm conducting ducts (epididymis, vas, seminal vesicle and prostate gland). Then during sexual stimulation, after proper erection and ejaculation, they come out through the penis. During sexual intercourse, these sperms, present in semen, are deposited inside the vagina. he deposited sperms must travel from the vagina through the cervix (the mouth of the uterus). The cervix acts as gate-keeper, it prevents entry of dead and abnormal sperms as well as bacteria present in semen, in the uterus. From uterus, sperms reach the Fallopian tubes (the tubes that are attached to both sides of the uterus) where the sperms must meet the egg (ovum). The eggs are produced only before birth and so, there are a fixed number of eggs inside the ovary. The ovum released from the ovary, into the abdomen at the time of ovulation (rupture of the surface of the ovary to release the ovum). That ovum must be taken by the tube and thus inside the tube, an embryo (the earliest form of the baby) is formed, by the meeting of the egg and the sperm. It is possible to come ot of infertility miserly via IUI which is possible in U kraine Ki ev. Congrats my friend
