Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After BFN and Spotting- *Infertility* 1 Year TTC, 1 Month Post Hysteroscopy
TTC since December 2012. Cervical factor infertility, 2 Obstetricians told me I needed immediate hysterectomy, that we would never be able to conceive. Sought 3rd opinion, received succesful hysteroscopy and cervical reconstruction by an R.E. in Dallas, Dr. Kevin Doody. Once cervix healed, he asked us to try once on our own: so here is that story.
Cycle day 1: Started heavy period (4.5 weeks post surgery)
CD3: Appt with RE- asked us to ttc naturally this cycle.
CD7: Last day of period.
CD13: Negative clearblue OPK fmu
CD14: Flashing positive OPK *high fertility* fmu
CD15: Flashing positive OPK *high fertility* fmu, Positive OPK late night *peak fertility*- BD this night
CD16: fmu positive OPK *peak fertility*- BD this night
CD17: **Ovulation** fmu Negative OPK- BD this night
1-4DPO: Thermal shift- bbt rise .3 degrees F, temp stays above coverline
5DPO: Brownish red spotting, enough for panty liner
6DPO: No spotting, frequent urination
7-8DPO: A little brown spotting again
9DPO: BFN with fmu, a little brown spotting
10DPO: BFN clearblue digital with fmu. *Not Pregnant*
11DPO: Hopes still up
12DPO: BFN with fmu- lost hope, bbt still above cover line
13DPO: Told hubby not pregnant this month, really losing hope
14DPO: Wait for period, figure it will show up any second- lots of gas cramps
15DPO: Still bloated. After lunch suddenly felt very nauseous, threw up. Weird?? I had already peed, but thought maybe I should test one last time. I was able to get a few drops of very diluted urine out and used a dollar store test. BFP. I didn't believe it. Thought it was lying to me. Shaking, I used a clearblue digital test with the same urine, and one more dollar test. 3 BFPs stared up at me!! Still can't believe it!
I walked in to my hubby, in tears, with my hands cupped over my mouth. He thought something was wrong, but I couldn't speak! Finally after him worrying for at least 3 minutes, I pointed at my belly. He was shocked and grabbed me in his arms and said "don't you do any lifting, and no running, and no caffeine, just sit down"- he brought me a prenatal vitamin and then took pictures of the BFPs. What an absolute miraculous blessing this is to us. Praying our little bean is a strong one. The next 9 months seem so scary from here! But we're so ready.
