Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
39yrs- low egg reserve, 6 months TTC, clomid, instead cups: 10dpo BFP
I was diagnosed with low egg reserve 2012. I went in cause some things changed in my cycle and I am very aware of whats happening.
sure enough, FSH was 14 I believe.
I even had once cycle where I didnt ovulate at all. But typically I get + opk and feel pain that day and next day followed by low shut cervix and white mucus.
we had been trying 6 months. I have had many pregnancies prior so I get pregnant easily but I was divorced and was not getting pregnant with my significant other. I redid my FSH which was better. however, still no pregnancy and didnt see anymore eggwhites (especially with all the sex) so that concerned me too.
in prior months I swayed, I tried some herbs, instead cups one month and preseed in a tiny amount and even clomid self perscribed at 25mg w out sucess. I get alot of white sticky mucus but I knew I needed stretchy fertile stuff.
so this month I didnt think it was going to work. wasnt even going to try. Then I went ahead and did 12.5mg clomid days 6-9? or maybe 7-10. I only had 4 doses. I had no signs of ovulation other than really in the mood.
then I got a test and just randomly tested and it was a near +. cd 13. cd14 +opk BLAZING dark.
BD cd 11, 13 (2x), 14, 15
Ovulated cd 14 (pains and sex too painful/achey)
3dpo feel wet but its cold. throbbing in belly a bit then gone.
4dpo so much mucus
5dpo sex burns. plus I have a tad bit of a yeast infection (from so much sex deposit) really emotional. plan to give up on trying. maybe Im not meant to have another.
6dpo thick throat feeling/phlemy, gagged at night brushing teeth. crabby, eating alot at night before bed. belly gurgles
7dpo very gassy and loud (not like me) cervix very long and firm. phlemy and thickness in throat and fullness in ears.
hot cold waves. nausea before bed. 1st night I took progesterone.
8dpo woke up feeling pukey and thought, ok I could be pregnant even tho I only have this symptom. (and since i just took the prog i know thats not making me pukey) I said if I cant taste milk, I dont even need a test. sure enough, whole milk tastes blah or like water. very creamy mucus. pooped a ton then had cramps after for hours in abdomen. acne. very hungry and thirsty for days now.
9dpo super hungry and mainly for meat. peeing more often and alot. my back is broken out! super crabby at other peoples kids. a baby was really crabby near me and I was annoyed (thought I would be terrible mother again) questionable FRER today. it has a line but no color. the one from last night has a even lighter test line but no pink. as day goes on, I think- this is a + even tho no color. take a clearblue and a target =/- at night and both FAINT + but then disappear 30 minutes later. read that is normal w those brands. take a FRER and its NEG with same pee.
10dpo. peed at 6am then woke at 7:15 w nausea. temp 98.1 (norm is 97.1) STARVING (ate 5 eggs and 2 slices of ham) peed at 7:30am and tested w that. +FRER within 2 mins. so obvious but still faint. much darker within the hour. clearblue at noon and its a + within 40 seconds. had one spec of pink today. cervix low and softer. very thin watery white mucus.
no boob pain, no green lines, no gagging, not overly tired, NO CRAMPS. Just irritated easily. dont really feel pregnant but then again its early. still sinking in. i was waiting to feel implantation or see some spotting. nothing like my norm.
it was our 6 month trying. I had JUST made an appt to do an IUI in 2 weeks. LOL
I added nordic naturals oil pills daily, vit d, ultra mega GNC pils (green ones 1 x a day vs 2) also b12 disolving tabs at 1500mg? drank more water. no sway. used instead cups 2-3 times this cycle and only had about a 3 drops of preseed so I put that in too. I did try to have an o after he finished, and I had my hips up when I did it. and again, used clomid at 12.5 mg days 6, 7, 8 and 9?
i have very strong pains this month and 3 days of wicked dark +opk.
partner will be 40 next month. he had a sperm sample done in Oct and showed 8% normal morphology but 220MILLION sperm. so we should not have too much of an issue w all those guys!
I didnt have my hopes up so I cared less this month. maybe thats what did it :)
