Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After 4 Years TTC
Its amazing how much comfort can be found in strangers. This site has been such a source of strength as I've waited to get my BFP for four years. Last week my happy ending resulted in a BFP.
Husband (35) works great, I (34) have anovulation (lack of ovulation) + unknown other infertility. We TTC naturally for 2 years, 1 year slightly
guided by OBGyn. Last year we began infertility treatment.
3 IUIs w/clomid -BFN
3 IUI's w/injectables- BFN
Pretty much lost hope as doctors scratched their heads as to why I was not conceiving. Blood work confirmed that my blood contains 95% sperm antibodies which most likely explains past failures. We decided to try IVF in February. This is my first attempt at IVF. 16 eggs retrieved on 2/14, 15 matured, 12 fertilized through ICSI. 5 day transfer implanted 2 blastocysts, froze 5.
12DPO- very full feeling in lower abdomen, cramps but not painful, fleeting 13DPO- full feeling in abdomen, so tired fell asleep on couch in middle of day. Took HPT and very faint line appeared. Not sure if this is remains of trigger shot or BFP
14DPO- slightly queasy, sleepy in afternoon. Morning HPT is lighter line than day before. Afternoon HPT is as strong as test line. CELEBRATION!!
16DPO- Blood work confirms preggers
Symptoms through today at exactly 5 weeks- Slightly queasy, sleepy in afternoon, twinges in belly. None of my symptoms are particularly strong or noticeable. Happy beta numbers: 254, 515, 2014. First ultrasound end of this week.
HAVE HOPE! xo
