Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 5th IUI

I'm turning 39 next month, single, and decided to start IUI treatments in February. The first 4 ended in BFN. The 5th time I was prescribed Follistim for the first time (100ml for 9 days) and triggered with Ovidrel. Today (13dpiui) I got my first-ever BFP!

Felt the fewest symptoms this month, but I had really bad cramping 1dpiui and 2dpiui (did back-to-back IUIs). Had a runny nose 3-4dpiui and what felt like chapped lips throughout most of the tww. I did notice sore, swollen boobs around 5dpiui, which I never have normally. Light af-like cramps 9-10dpiui, even took hpt on 10 and 11dpiui - BFN. But lo and behold on day 13...

Don't give up - this was going to be my last IUI before taking a break and saving up for IVF. Thrilled to be able to share my story! :)
