BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

1st short protocol IVF + PCOS

Firstly thanks for all the stories that have kept me going over the past 2.5 years of ttc. My BFP... at last.
I had short protocol IVF i.e ivf lite.I take metformin 1000mg and pregnacare. I found the treatment was fine, the injections were ok and easy to do. I had a quick response to stims so ended up with egg collection earlier than we thought. Had 5 eggs with 3 that fertilised IVF. 2 were grade 1's and one 3. After transfer at 5 days blastocyst, it was doubtful if we would be able to freeze but we do now have one in store.Had to do Gestone injections daily, which we are continuing with. I was told to test 16 dpo, we waited for this. First test didn't work as no line in the cb control window. Then tried a viola early test, I thought this was negative as it is hard to read them( would not recommend for ease of use) Then did a clearblue again and it immediately changed to positive result. I am so shocked as so many people say it doesn't work very often first time around. For those of you who obsess with symptoms as I did here goes....
1dpt cramps and sore bladder feeling
2dpt cramps more urinating than normal
3 dpt(8dpo) occasional cramps
5dpt very lightheaded
not a lot until 13dpo, strong cramping panicked but read a lot of ladies have this and its normal
morning feeling lightheaded and slightly nauseous but fine after food.
Cramps have continued but not as intense. I am warm which I am never warm. I wake a lot in the night and having vivid dreams.
Thanks again to everyone who share their stories it kept me sane.
