Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 7 months ttc using ivi at home!
Hi everyone, I've been stalking this website for months during my ttc journey and now I get to write my own bfp story, I'm so excited! Don't give up hope, it is possible even with obstacles. My husband has problems with delayed ejaculation so we've been using 5ml needle-less sterile syringes to insert his swimmers into my vagina (ivi). I will write our method and then my Symptoms By DPO. Things done different this month: I started taking seven Seas folic acid with b vitamin complex. Prayed almost every day and slept with a small moonstone crystal in my bed (supposed to help with pregnancy), lay down for 45 minutes after ivi. We dtd three days before O, the day before and on the day itself. I got a strong positive at 12 dpo! My first ever bfp!!
OUR METHOD: he ejaculates into a disposable bowl at his own pace. We let the sperm liquefy for about 15 minutes while keeping it warm and dark under the sheets with us. Then we open a fresh syringe and pull the plunger up and down with nothing in it at first (rubber plungers can hurt sperm so use just a plastic one). Then SLOWLY draw the ejaculate up into the syringe and gently tap out any air. I lie down with my hips elevated on a pillow and insert the syringe until it's just below my cervix. Then SLOWLY push down the plunger so it takes about thirty seconds to depress in total. Coat the cervix opening in sperm basically lol. I try to orgasm once the sperm are in and stay lying down.
MY SYMPTOMS BY DPO:
1dpo: watery cm. Nothing else of note.
2dpo: sensitive nipples. Creamy cm.
