Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP, after 3 1/2 years!!
Hello Ladies! I've stalked this site for years and drawn so much hope from it that maybe I share some of that :)
For a while we were titled "unexplained infertility". All hormone level tests and male fertility tests came back with perfect numbers and I ovulated like a champ. After trying naturally for about 18 months, my OB decided a laparoscopy was our best option. To my surprise, he found stage 3 Endometriosis and cleaned me all up. We conceived 4 months later and lost that baby very early. After another 6 months of no success, we went to a specialist. We tried Clomid (3 cycles), Injectables + Trigger (4 cycles) and one round of iui. Because it had been 15 months since my last lap and because during iii prep he thought he saw a "thickening" in my uterus, my specialist decided to don another surgery. He found uterine polyps, a growth on my fallopian tube, stage 2 Endo and lots of adhesions. He cleaned me all up and we conceived naturally the next cycle!! I am 5 weeks,1day pregnant and all looks perfect! I'm the happiest girl in the world and so very grateful for this little miracle. Here are some details about this cycle if it helps anyone...
-sex every other day for a week during ovulation (2 days in a row when OPK was positive)
-took 1 low dose aspirin per day throughout cycle
-ate pineapple & pineapple core for 5 days after ovulation (read it helps with implantation)
-low back began to ache at 6dpo, still aches
-had the tiniest pink'ish spotting (like a TINY little bit in my cm) when I wiped once at 7dpo, once at 8dpo, once at 12dpo
-super faint positive HPT at 8dpo
-clearly positive, although still very faint, positive at 9dp
-BFP at 10dpo*pic
-symptoms very similar to AF, with a tiny variation - heavy breasts, achy low back, very low abdominal pulling, sleepy
