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!!!
