Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

40 yrs old 3mcs and bfp

I have been trying for baby #2 for almost 3 years. I have a beautiful almost 4 year old daughter. I got prego in June 2013 but mc'd at 5 weeks. Doc said it was ok to try again and give it 6 more month. In March 2014 I was 5 days late and thought i might have had another mc but i only tested at 11dpo and the day i finally got af. So i may have missed my bfp. In July 2014 I got another bfp (faint) at 14dpo but af came 6 days later. I went back to the doc and she gave me clomid 50mg days 3-7. I tried 2 months, then took 2 months off over the holidays. I took clomid again in January with no luck. The first attempt i got a bfp, but it got lighter and went away after 2 days then i got af. So I have tried everything i could find over the last few years: prayer, pineapple core, sun flower seeds, extra vitamin B, fish oil, meditation, co Q10, baby aspirin, robetussin, clomid, temping, opks, etc. This month i was extremely stressed (we sold our house) we bd on cd 14 and only that day. I ov'd on cd15 based on temp and cm because i didn't even bother with opks this month. The only thing i did different is upped my vitamin D after reading up on vitamin d and fertility. I have been keeping track of our ttc journey for 2 years. And i went back and looked at the 3 or 4 times i was or might have been pregnant. I had 1 months where i was taking extra vitamin D, 1 month i was working on a project outside for 3 weeks, 1 month i had taken vitex and D, and 1 month i had taken clomid and D. So i upped my D to 4000 iu a day. And here I am, at 40, overweight, 3 miscarriages and 3 failed rounds of clomid later, and im preggo! from 2-4 dpo i had some dull to sharp pains 5dpo exhausted, sore bbs 6dpo low grade headache all day, tummy trouble 7-9dpo sore bbs, thirsty 9-11 dpo smells bothers me, crazy dreams, cramp on left side only, greasy hair and skin 12dpo BFP! Not even a squinter, thirsty, potty trips every hour, slightly dizzy, occasional queaziness. Bfp at night too. 13-17 Still BFP every day, twice on 13dpo, bbs still sore, back is sore, mild pokes in tummy not quite cramps, some dizziness, hungry and thirsty. I won't be convinced we are in the clear until i see my baby's heart beat, but i feel optimistic and know this one will stick. I thank God, and know He pointed me in the right direction.
