BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Almost too good to be true

Same as everyone else I stalked here and read almost every page looking for hope and over analyzing everything. I owe it to the women in my same shoes to add my story. First thing I have to say is that I had so many more symptoms during my BFN cycles than I had with the BFP: sore boobs, swollen gums, early AF cramping, heartburn, you name it. This time around I wouldn't have caught anything if I wasn't looking for it. This was my first IUI cycle after 14 months of TTC on our own. Numbers were: Clomid days 5-9 Scan on CD 11 - 2 follies at 19 and 20mm. Ovidrel trigger on CD 12 IUI on CD 14 1 DPO: ovulation cramps 2 DPO: still some ovulation pain 3 DPO: nothing 4 DPO: nothing 5 DPO: could it be maybe some nipple soreness? I never get sore nipples, only sore boobs right after O 6 DPO: definitely some soreness, left nipple only 7 DPO: still kind of sore, pretty strange for me 8 DPO: still a little sore. Since I know it's too early for BFP, let me see if I still have the trigger in my body - Very very faint line 9 DPO: is the line darker? It's still so faint I can't even tell. Still think it's the trigger 10 DPO: don't even have to squint - BFP! BFP! Confirmed later on at my doctors office with a beta of 42. Ladies this journey is cruel and heartbreaking, I know, but worth it!



Love you story:) Congrats! Did your Doc tell you to wait 2 days, instead of doing the IUI the day after the trigger? I told my doc I wanted to wait but he said do it the next day. I'm in my TWW but am starting to think I should have listened to my gut
