Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after chemical with male factor problems
So just to summarise our journey, DH and I started TTC Jan 2014...after 7 months we fell pregnant but sadly 2 days after I was due AF I started to bleed...cue early loss. We were devestated. We carried on TTC straight away as luckily I ovulated 2 weeks later. After a year we went for tests, I was all fine but unfortunatly DH was told he had a LSC with poor motility and morphology :-( gutted doesn't come close. According to our GP our previous conception had been 'very lucky', he put the chemical down to the embryo having chromosome abnormalities and we were put on the waiting list to see a fertility expert. However, 9 months after our horrible loss (to the date!) we got our BFP again, last week! Happy times!
I wanted to share my story because I often wanted to ask SO many questions...wondering, will it ever work for us? Are we able to have a normal natural conception? Are we doing enough? Why us???? So to let you know what we did...when we got our first BFP, we were doing EVERYTHING! OPKS, temping, following the SMEP for BD, using preseed, BD in certain positions, me laying for an hour after BD. This time we did, NOTHING! It was genuinely the first month I didn't even think about O day, or temps, or TWW in general..I had just switched off. I was a crazy POAS mess up until this cycle too but this time I waited until AF didn't show before I tested and got a + digi straight away.
I guess my advice is this...it will happen when the time is right (awful cliché I know)...if it can for us, it can for most of you and I wish you every luck and happiness on the world.
One thing to note also...first BFP I felt no different to normal cycles and my tests were only faint and did not get any darker. This time my tests have got increasingly darker and continue to do so and I've experienced cramps, increased appetite and fatigue.
I hope my story helps some of you!
