Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

3.5+ years of TTC and my first ever BFP!!

My husband and I have been TTC #1 since August 2012. After the first year, I finally stopped temping because my cycles were like clockwork. While I wasn't temping, I always kept track of AF. August 2015,at our 3 year mark, we finally decided to start getting tests done. DH was totally fine, my HSG showed no blockage, and my hormone level were all good. There wasn't anything obviously keeping us from conceiving.

September - December 2015 we did 3 IUI cycles with femara, ovidrel, and follicle monitoring via ultrasound. I had about 2-3 good sized follies each time but all 3 IUIs failed.

January 2016 - We decided to stop actively trying. More like NTNP. I kept track of AF but stopped using OPKs and stopped symptom spotting during the TWW (for the most part.... it is really hard to stop when you've been doing it for over 3 years!)

In February, we went on a trip to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary. We have a wonderful time! We explored, ate great food and had plenty to drink ;). I knew I was ovulating around that time, but didn't use an OPK or really think about it.

2 weeks later, I was 2 days from expecting AF and DH was out of town. I thought I might as well test before he he gets home on the off chance I am pregnant. (Again, I've tested during almost every TWW for the past 3.5 years! It is always in the back of my mind.)

I went to the store and bought HPTs and a 6 pack of beer (classy!!). I POAS, set it on the counter and went to open my beer, cut up a lime and squeezed it in the bottle. When it was time, I went into the bathroom and SCREAMED when I saw the test. BFP. Clear as day.

Honestly, I didn't have ANY symptoms... except for maybe a lack of PMS attitude (but maybe that was because my husband was out of town.. haha).

I'm 4 weeks 2 days now. My first beta was 3 weeks 5 days at 128. Second beta at 4 weeks was 349 and progesterone 28. I'm still POAS regularly because I cannot believe it is true. I cannot wait form 7 week scan.

Hang in there ladies. There really is hope!!
