BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after first IUI

I just got my first BFP, and the hubby and I are elated! :D

A little back story on us: DH is 30 and I am 27 with mild endometriosis. He has a slight male factor (3% morphology and slightly low numbers). I went off of birth control in 2011 because it made me feel miserable! Just screwed my hormones up and left me feeling overall horrible. So we were not trying/not preventing until Christmas 2013. We decided to go for it and try all of 2014, no luck. Every month was more and more heart breaking. I actually got so depressed that I couldn't even look into fertility specialist without crying and feeling hopeless. However, my best friend just had a baby in November 2014, and they stayed a few nights during Christmas time with us. Seeing her perfect little angel made me realize that I needed to face my infertility issues.

So DH and I start doing our research and find a clinic 2.5 hours away from our town (sadly, nothing closer exist in our area). We went trough the normal tests,my hormones and tubes all look great, I'm ovulating on my own. His sperm is pretty good but not perfect. Fortunately, I already had my endometriosis diagnosis from 2010, so I pretty much knew why we were getting nothing but BFNs every month. This sped up the process, and the RE didn't waste any time once we were done with all of the initial testing and immediately put me on a combination of Letrozole and Gonal-f, with Novarel as the trigger and progesterone suppositories after the IUI.

I produced 3 follicles, all over 18mm. The day of the IUI i had horrible stomach pain the entire day (probably ovulation pain). And here were the rest of my symptoms for my fellow symptom trackers! (I was reading these stories nonstop during my 2ww).

dpo1- major stomach cramps/discomfort
dpo2-3 - mild cramps, nothing else really noticeable
dpo 4-5 - twingey/crampy feeling in the area of my uterus on and off as well as in my actual vagina (sorry if tmi, but no one else ever warned me about these!) and fatigue starts to hit me, but I assumed that was from the progesterone, as well as sore nipples
dpo 6 - vivd dreams start, slight insomnia, sharp pains in uturus for a few minutes at night (im assuming implantation pains) more weird v cramps and sore nips, and of course fatigue
dpo 7-8 - sore nips turning into sore breast (like, super sore!), more vivid dreams, more weird v cramps, and fatigue
dpo 9 - no more vivid dreams, full blown breast soreness and nips randomly getting excited for no reason (again, sorry if tmi!) less v cramps, took a HPT to see if trigger shot was gone and it was negative, more fatigue
dpo 10-11- symptoms same as above, except first BFP! I was hesitant to believe it so I took more and all BFP!! every day the line gets a little darker (so Im assuming it cant be the trigger because the hormone level is increasing, not decreasing)
dpo 12 - all the same symptoms still, more BFPs, but add in sensitive stomach. I gagged trying to eat oatmeal and made DH scrape it out because looking at it made me feel queasy

So, now we are waiting for the blood test on DPO 14! We are still a little in shock and trying not to get overly excited, because anything can happen in the next few months. I wanted to post this to tell all of you mommies to be that there is hope! I really never expected to get a BFP and started loosing hope! But stay strong and don't give up! Baby dust to all!!!

Congrats on your BFP!! I just had iui four days ago ! Hope I see some good results in two weeks .

hi to all i am new here. Here is my story. My AF become very irregular. I have already two children. I am 32 years old. I am trying to conceive for almost 6 months but cannot. Every month i went to my dr. All the time she said u r not preg :(. You have just delayed AF. Thatz make me so crazy. My DH is a thyroid patient ( Hypo). Due to his hormones disturbance we are not getting what we want. Her doctor asked me if u want to get preg i said yup we are trying but cannot getting success. She told Weus about IUI. I do not know what is this procedure. She explained us. We went to our GYN doctor. My doctor gave me Clomid 50 mg. i eat it 2-7 days during my AF. Premarin and duphaston. On 30 March i have 2 follicles all over 18mm. My doctor also checked my DH sample counts and mobility. She checked my O day also and by luck i got positive O on the OPK. She told us to come on 31 March 2015. First they have taken the sample of my DH. On the same day i have gone my first IUI. Now i am crossing my fingers.
Today is 10 days after iui but i have cramps.

1 day nothing happen
2 day cramps but vanish
3-6 days nothing happen
7 day i have swear cramps started at night
8 day cramps are still there but mild
9 day swear cramps for little time but it vanish
10 day i do nt know its cramp or just a stretch feeling on my left side. i have vivid dreams also.

Now tell me can i go through my HPT? or shall i w8.? please help me.
