Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 9dpo following 2 miscarriages and with pcos

I know this is a cliche but I cannot believe it is our turn again. I promised myself I would post here if I ever was blessed with another bfp to inspire others as this site has been such a comfort during our ttc journey. I have 'skinny' pcos with long, irregular cycles. I have a four year old daughter who was conceived in the run up to our wedding. We have been trying for baby number 2 since April 2013. I had what they described as a 'chemical' pregnancy in July 2013. To say we were devastated was an understatement. I then went to fertility consultant and was started on clomid 50mg in March 2014. I was lucky to conceive 2nd cycle of clomid in April 2014. Roll on 8 weeks and we were devastated to learn of a missed miscarriage at approx 5-6 weeks. We were completely unprepared for this and I chose the medical management. Roll on 13 months later and I have done 3 rounds of tamoxifen with ovulation but no pregnancy, then finished the final 4 rounds of clomid. On to 6th and final cycle of clomid and went to our first ivf appointment on cycle day 49. Consultant tested amh level which to our relief was high at 54, however due to this and my pcos he was reluctant to start ivf due to high risk of hyper stimulation. He suggested ovarian diathermy which I was not keen on followed by iui. He also scanned me and noticed follicle on right ovary about to rupture and uterine lining thin. We used this last chance saloon and bd as often as we could. Cannot believe I'm posting my bfp story 9dpo. Praying for a sticky bean this time.
What I did: ovulation tracking, acupuncture, bd o-5, o-3, o-2, o-1, pineapple core post ovulation, wore socks post ovulation and used hot water bottle around uterus to keep womb 'warm'

1-2dpo, nothing, took daughter to theme park and went on all the rides
3dpo tender beasts (normal for me)
4dpo- backache, bloated, tender breasts, lots of walking
5dpo- backache, bloated, tender breasts, lots of walking
6dpo - bloated, tender breasts
7dpo - bloated, increased appetite, tender breasts
8dpo - gassy, fatigue, diarrhoea, tender breasts. Bloated
9dpo - tender breasts not so tender, fatigue, tested pm urine and got BFP on clear blue digital 1-2 weeks.

Pray for us that this little bean will stick and our journey through infertility and loss will have a happy ending.x
