Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 18 Days Post IUI/Ovulation

I cannot believe I am writing this, as I have read this board for so long, never thinking I would have my own positive story to share. I just took a test yesterday at 18days post iui after getting a BFN at 11 and 14 days post. I figured I was out. I waited for my period to come as I had period cramps and my boobs were a bit sore but not as much as usual. My period never came. After four days I called the doctor and said they need to give me something to start my period bc it's delayed. I figured they would ask me when the last time I tested so I swiped a pee stick and took it to work with me - then dipped into the bathroom at work, figuring it would be another BFN. I nearly lost my mind when two pink lines came up right away. I was in such shock, shaking in the stall!! I left work early and went to get a blood test. Today the doctor called and my beta is 940 - more than double what they would expect it to be at this stage. So it truly is not over until your period shows...I always hated it when people said that, but I am living proof that it is true! I hope that helps some people in the tww - don't get too down if you test early and it's a BFN.

I had three follicles over 20mm and my husband had 32 million sperm, 80 percent motility. This was our fifth iui - all failed cycles before.

Symptoms by day

0-4 - nothing
Day 4 - tugging sensation in my labia at night (very strange, I know)
Day 7 and 8 - very low period cramps and my nose begins to run a lot
Day 9 - a little breakout on my chin - runny nose continues
Day 10 - I notice my boobs are bigger but they are usually quite sore now bc of AF.
Day 11-14 - really nothing of note - some AF like cramps on and off, still runny nose
Day 15-18 - more AF cramps..where is my period??
Morning of day 18 - BFP

That's the extent of my symptoms - nothing that noteworthy. I thought I'd be feeling "pregnant" but I still don't!

Wishing the best of luck and baby dust to all!!!

awesome story hh9 xx

That is awesome! I'm currently in my tww and it is killing me. 3rd cycle, 1st medicated. Are you on progesterone? I feel a little different than normal so think maybe it's positive this time, but then I think... all the crazy hormones are just making me crazy! :)

ur story gave me so much hope I'm TTC 3 years and its my 9th day post iui, I shouldn't have tested but I had bfn today, did u ever felt nauseating?

Congratulations....

This was really helpful. Thx!

Thanks for sharing this, it is so encouraging!

I am in my last few days of 2ww, have usual AF symptoms--cry easily, sore breasts, and have given up hope that it's worked, this time; I decided not to go get a blood test, on Thursday, because what would be the point?--so reading this made me take heart, a bit.

Hi all I've been staking this site for a while. Had my fist IUI on March 2nd. I'm a nervous impatient wreck!! How the heck do you all do it?

today my 18 day post iui... i lost my hopes when i get brown discharge(little discharge) on the day after 14, 15, and 16 and also 17 day........ 17 day getting bit more discharge.... i dont know what is happening...... i searched in the internet that, pregnancy test can be done after 14 days of conception, and also when my period is due, that day we can check, my period date 4th of this month. have to meet doc on 5th. any suggestions.

Congrats!
Im 11 days past my 1st iui. We used clomid only, and so far BFN...but we gotta keep our heads up! Not outta the game til AF shows up!

today is my 18th day of iui and i missed my first day period, my breast and nipple are so pain and abdominal pain, white discharge also. there possible to get pregnant.

Hi!

This is my first time to comment here.

I had iui 18 days ago and have been a nervous wreck ever since. I had taken clomid prior to this and this resulted in four eggs, two on each side. I also was given a fertility injection 24 hours prior to iui. It was my first time to have it and the doctor didn't seem too positive about the outcome due to my husband's low sperm mobility.

I have been having cramps and a pulling sensation in my abdomen for over a week. I had quite noticeable pains on the left side of my womb for a few days. I have had lower back pain on and off for a week. My boobs are very tender and I am super emotional all the time. This morning, day 18 after iui, I tested negative. I have had some light brown mucous discharge a few times over the last few days and presumed it was my period starting. I don't know whether I should call the doc or hold off for another few days. Waiting is killing me.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Not sure if there still a hope. It has been negative. I didn't check last night or this morning. Don't want to disappoint myself again. My period hasn't come, not even any brown discharge, which was usually happened before AF. Lower back was sore the first week after IUI(never had before), on and off lately. But still.........Nurse from my doctor's office told me on the date 14 that "sorry...please wait and call on you date 3 of AF". I am so nervous to take test again.
