Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

38 yo pregnant after 2 years trying

I thought for a moment why bother submitting a post? And then I remembered all of the posts that I read that helped me when I had a question, or needed reassurance about some random symptom or to just distract me during the infertility rollercoaster ride. So here we go...
Married to DH 10+ years - together for 20+. We waited + experienced life and other unexpected events and then realized it wasn't going to be easy.
Went thru 4 failed rounds of IUI late last year and were placed on the list for government funded IVF and I was advised FEB of this year that I would be up for IVF in June. YAY After the prep and injections of Gonal F, Menopur, Suprefact fast forward mid July and then trigger, 7 eggs retrieved, 2 days later 5 still going strong, 2 more days later, 3 embryos and on transfer day, 2 embryos and transferred.
I remember feeling worried after transfer as I had to pee badly! That kind of pee that blasts out. And I tried my hardest to hold it but when you have to go. DH helped me with my PIO shots every morning. I ate pineapple 5 days post transfer and Baby aspirin every day.
The following day and the main symptom that I had never seen prior was blue visible veins on my BBS and BBS were bigger. I felt some twinges here and there. Took my first HPT 3dp5dt and there was a very faint line. So at this point I'm thinking trigger. I was too scared to take a HPT the next day. Took another HPT on 5dp5dt and another faint line even fainter than 2 days prior. I'm gutted :( 6dp5dt I take a third HPT and 2 lines come up straight away and darker than the day prior. :) Had some light spotting on 8 and 9dp5dt. Beta results 14dp5dt 490 and beta 16dp5dt 1406. Sending positive love vibes out to everyone out there who is struggling in some way with infertility. xo
