Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

3rd times a charm with iui!

After almost exactly 2years of ttc.....finally got our bfp! After countless at home remidies to try to increase ferility such as preseed, fertiliaid, multiple vitamins, pineapple, and to name a few, then 6 months of clomid and 3 iui's....we thought we were going to have to move on to ivf if this 3rd iui failed and now finally able to say we are pregnant! And after many months of symptom spotting....i really didnt have any! My bb's became sore/tender about the time they usually do before AF comes but have still remained sore! No nausea, nipple changes, food intolerances or noticeable tiredness. Usually about 3 days before AF comes my cm turns brown/bloody tinged...this time I kept checking for it but when I got to my expected AF date withno mucus change I tested. At 14 and 15 dpo/iui i had to squint to see a second line so was not convinced. I went out and bought a digital test pack and frer pack and took both 16 dpo/ came back 'pregnant' and frer with a clear, no second guessing second line! real symptoms, actual lack of my colored cm 3 days before expected af was my biggest hint! Going to get my blood work drawn tomorrow so hoping all is well! Anyone going through iui treatments dont give up! We had no reason for the iui not to work so by the time the first 2 failed I was basically already convinced #3 wouldn't work and we would be moving on to ivf! Now praying for a health pregnancy!


So happy to hear this story !! My husband are almost in the same boat as u and we have just had our 3rd Iui done, I'm trying to remain hopeful but also realistic that this could not work and we are on the ivf. I wish u a happy and healthy pregnancy xoxo

Congratulations Jen, I'm so happy for you! We are starting our 2nd IUI this cycle and trying to remain hopeful. Can I ask, what was your gap between trigger and insemination? With my last IUI, I was given both within half an hour of each other and I'm sure this is why it didnt work :/ Wishing you a healthy 9 months :D
