Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP - 2nd IUI - Vasectomy Reversal

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to FINALLY be able to share my BFP story! My husband and I have been TTC for about 2 years now. DH had a vasectomy reversal right after we got married, July 2013. The surgery was a success and 6 months after his surgery we began actively trying. After about a year we decided to seek medical help. In April 2015, we started Clomid. After 2 months with my regular OB I was frustrated and decided to see a specialist in June, 2015. We were set to do IUI in July but I had 9 follicles and they canceled the IUI. August was out because of residual cysts. We had our first IUI in September. DH's sperm count was extremely low, 2 million, (he was taking antibiotics and we were told it shouldn't matter...IT DOES) and I only had two follicles. That IUI resulted in a BFN. Our second IUI was October 19th. I had 5 follicles and his sperm count was better 38 million!

I tried my hardest not to symptom spot as I normally do. I did not take my temperature daily, I tried not to think about anything! Around 5 DPIUI I felt some light cramping that lasted a couple of hours. 7DPIUI I was eating lunch and had very strong cramping that I had to move around to try to get relief, that never came. Those cramps lasted for about 30 minutes. It was very strong. I felt wetness but never really the familiar feel of AF getting ready to come. My Cervical Mucus was very prominent, very white and thick. That was unusual for me. I also took my temperature a few days in the second part of TWW and noticed it was very high. I started temping daily at 12DPIUI when my temp usually starts dropping if AF comes and it still remained high. I took a test on Sunday (13dpiui) and it was negative. I didn't want to test because I hate POAS and seeing BFN, but DH was going out of town and he wanted to be there. I was discouraged but did not cry as much as I usually do, I had faith because my temps were still high.

I did not test the next day exactly two weeks after the procedure, I just figured I would wait for AF. Nothing came! The next morning I said oh forget it, let's get it over with. I looked at the control line and saw it popped up and started crying with joy, then I quickly laughed at myself when I realized I was only looking at the control line. I brushed my teeth and looked again and there was the most precious sight ever a +! Then I cried for real. I was alone and had to call my hubby! It was amazing. I left to go to school and picked up another test on the way and took it in the bathroom in my First Grade classroom. Two pink line immediately showed up. :)

I went to the clinic the next day for my Beta it was 147 and two days later it was 496. Yesterday I had my first ultrasound at 7 weeks and saw my little baby and heard the heartbeat. I have not felt a single thing yet. Just a bit tired sometimes and my breasts are very sore and getting bigger daily it seems. I am so happy. I am so relieved. I am so thankful.

Never give up. God is able to do anything. TTC is a long road, it is hard, it is tough, it is sad, it is lonely but it builds character and strength. When it finally happens it makes it all worth while! I am still praying for a healthy pregnancy throughout but now and forever all the praise and glory is to God for answering my prayer!

Good luck and God Bless!
