Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

bfp after iui

We have been ttc for 6 years, 4 years seriously and then 1 1/2 years with fertility treatment. I had 10 rounds of clomid all bfn and 1st iui in September 2011 - bfn.
During my iuis i had menopur injections, folicle scans, trigger shot and progesterone suppositories. I decided to ignore any signs or symptoms i got as after so long watching every sign or feeling i was quite stressed. This iui though was quite different. I decided to eat pineapple everyday from cd1 until iui as i read it increases your womb lining and it did! from an average of between 7 and 8 to over 10! We had iui early on cd 12 with only one mature follicle of 20 and a smaller one of 13mm. Hubbys SA showed average - as the nurse said - shes seen better, shes seen worse . . . IUI itself was v v v painful and my cervix was high and tilted. I bled for a day afterwards. I have had constipation since iui and been rather tired falling asleep on the sofa early evening.
As i take progesterone i was ignoring my extremely tender breasts but on reflection they are much worse than with the first iui!
On 10 dpiui i had bright, pale pink streaks in my cm and though af was on the way but then nothing. I was confused as i thought progesterone stopped any bleeding but it was definately there!
On 12dpiui i had a wierd metal taste in my mouth and mouth ulcers, also felt like a cold was coming on. i also got a v v v faint positive but ignored it as i thought i was halucinating as usual.
on 13dpiui a stong positive with fmu within a minute!! Shock!!!
On 14dpiui 2 strong positives immediately!! still shock!!
15dpiui a digi said those lovely words pregnant 1-2
im still in shock!!
I'm now 17dpiui with frequent trips to the loo, v hungry for garlic, tired and a headache that feels like the worst hangover with a thirst to match!!
baby dust to everyone - please send sticky vibes my way
