Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After Back to back IUI's - FIRST TIME SUCCESS!
A little background about me, I am 26 and in a same sex relationship. I have no known fertility issues and all preliminary testing came back normal. I was put on Letrozole/Femara CD5-9, then did OPK's at home until I got a positive. After the positive I went in two days in a row for back to back IUI's with donor sperm. This is how I was feeling each day after: 1dpiui - very bloated, cramping 2dpiui - twinges in abdomen throughout the day 3dpiui - still bloated, gassy 4dpiui - strong cramps on right side of abdomen, cold symptoms 5dpiui - tired, otherwise normal 6dpiui - normal 7dpiui - woke up with a nose bleed (never get them normally) 8dpiui - blood/metallic taste in mouth, pains above right hip 9dpiui - cramping above right hip 10dpiui - FRER with FMU - BFP! I have since had two blood draws completed. Hcg at 14dpiui was only 61, 4 days later it should have doubled twice (should have been 244 or higher) and it was 390! I am still so in shock that we had success the first try! My first ultrasound is booked for May 2nd :) Think positive ladies, you really can be successful with iui even with the odds against you! Baby dust to all!
