BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 3rd IUI

Very excited to be posting my BFP story! I got my BFP on 13dpo - 11th month TTC. This was my 3rd IUI. I decided to test because I felt different than usual. I normally start spotting 5 days before my period is due, this time nothing. Also my stomach felt weird, like low level period cramps and a twinge on one particular side. I don't normally cramp before AF either. I had sore bbs from the same DPO as normal, temps also seemed normal post - o temps, not particularly triphasic. This has been months of hard work. I switched to an organic wholefoods diet 3 months ago, as well as all organic household and beauty products, and started fertility acupuncture at the same time. I ovulated on CD15 as usual - symptoms by DPO below DPO 1-3 - nothing DPO 4-7 - stomach not right, gassy and slightly constipated DPO 8 - nothing DPO 9-11 - sore BBs (normal pre AF for me, nothing out of the ordinary), also noticed a few new spots, again not really out of the ordinary, except this hasn't happened as much since I started eating organic. Lots of creamy cm, slightly unusual but not totally unheard of. slight temp drop on 11 DPO but had a terrible sleep. DPO 12 - temp back up. stomach felt weird. I did a big workout at the gym and had a pain on one side after, which became low grade cramps that came on and off the rest of the day. told DH I thought I was preg cos uterus felt "full" DPO 13 - tested with FMU - BFP!! took 5 tests to confirm including CB digi, all faint BFP or almost full BFP. Dull ache in uterus all day/bloated feeling, still creamy cm. Off to the fertility unit for blood work tomorrow, hoping this one sticks around!

Congratulations! HH 9 months.

Congratulations on the BFP this is my first ever post on one of these sites but I read them all the time! I am currently 7dpiui and this is our second round! I haven't been having any CM at all and although I've been feeling tight/pulling cramps for about 4 days and woke up one night in the middle of the night at 3dpiui I've not had much more. My bbs are sore but I have been taking progesterone - were you taking any progesterone suppositories? How noticeable was the cramps you were having as I've been having them for ages and worried they are the progesterone!
