Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 8 long years of trying , thank God he's Faithful!
I have read all of these BFP stories for years, and I said I would post after I got my BFP. I am 38 yrs old and DH is 39yo, we've been married 10 yrs. My pregnancy road began in 2008, I tried natural cycles with Femara, then in 2010 found out I had endometriosis from exploratory laparascopy and found out DH had severe male factor. DH and I continued to try to get pregnant but nothing. In 2012 we tried a menopur cycle with hcg trigger but nothing. 2014 I had another laparascopy and polyp removal. We then tried IUI x2 , but still BFN. In 2015 after a failed IUI, we decided to look into IVF. Well November 2015 we had 7 eggs fertilized by ICSI. We transferred 2 3 day embryos. Needless to say, we were both devastated when it didn't work. We had 1 last embryo that was frozen, but we decided to wait because honestly I was very discouraged at this point. Well March 16th, 2017 we decided to transfer our 1 and only 2AB blastocyte frozen embryo, and on 3/27/17, I found out I was pregnant with beta of 270! I am now 7 weeks 6 days, and I know this is truly a blessing from the Lord. I thank him daily for this miracle. Here are my early symptoms : 1dpo Bloated feeling, pulling at navel. 2po- had very vivid dream, where I was killing people who were trying to kill me ( I know crazy right) that same night I had a somewhat spontaneous orgasmic like feeling. I just knew I was pregnant. 3dpo-4dpo- gassy, mild cramp here and there 5dpo- I had a very sharp pain when walking at the park with my mom, I had to stop walking for a second. 6dpt- early that morning around 2am, I took pregnancy test- BFN. I decided no more testing. 7pt- period like cramps and pressure in pelvic area 8dpt- I was at the grocery store and felt what felt like a menstrual period. I ran home and wiped say dark red/brownish blood. I wanted to cry, but prayed and took a HPT. I wasn't going to look at it thought I was out but I saw 2 faint lines. I took a digital and it said negative, so I decided to wait for my Beta in 3 days. 8dpt-10dpt I had very light brown or beige spotting, a cramp here and there. 11dpt- I had beta- 270 BFP 13dpt- beta 599 20dpt- beta 6,331 My EDD is 12/2/2017, MY 11TH Anniversary! ! God has a sense of humor! Let this be encouragement to all of you, with God all things are possible, Only Believe! Doubt the Doubt! If he did it for me he'll do it for you too!
