Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after IVF 12dp5dt

My husband and I tried naturally for about 2 years. We also tried one IUI that was unsuccessful about 6 months ago. This story concerns our first IVF. We had 24 eggs retrieved, 18 of which fertilized and 16 which continued on until the next day. All were fertilized by icsi because we were having male factor issues (low motility and poor morphology). By day 5 we had three blatocysts, one that was of the highest quality and that is the one that we transferred. The others would have been frozen if they could have been along with about 6 others that were in an earlier stage of development but none made it to freezing. 0-5 dp5dt - nothing (had very stressful fight with dh and was crying and very upset so was scared that stress would make anything impossible which made me very upset)(also had a 6 hour car trip til 3 in the morning and had some adrenaline rushes while driving due to semis cutting in front of us, also made me scared for embie)(both of these were occurring days 1 and 2 past transfer) 6dp5dt - in the morning very nauseous in the bus on the way to work. About noontime had strong af type cramps that were painful to the point that I took two Tylenol once in the afternoon (thinking early period and out) 7dp5dt - 8 dp5dt - nothing, 7dp had intercourse and orgasm (doc had said not to for 4-5 days and had read was good for process so figured day 7 was okay) 9dp5dt - 11dp5dt - cramps that are intermittent and slight to medium, feel deep or low but not sharp or wrenching. 12dp5dt - home pregnancy test fmu ... BFP!!! So excited have never seen this before! I cried and thanked God! I woke dh up and showed him the test. He was so happy and opened his arms for a hug. Did another test about 45 minutes later. First test was first response, second was clearblue +. More cramps today, feel stronger than the past couple days but still come and go. 13dp5dt - beta scheduled for tomorrow. Hoping for great news. Very excited, trying to be cautiously optimistic. The only other symptom I can think of is my tummy feels warm to me today and there was a night about five nights ago that I woke up really warm. Thank you all for your posts over the years. Baby dust to all.

Hi there, you made it to 12dp without hpt before this? Wow. I’m 12dp and did hpt at 5dp and bfn.... Too doubtful and worried to test now... 14dp (in 2 days) is blood test. Write back please :)

Sorry I never wrote back, I am just now reading this again because we are starting to want to ttc again. I waited! I don't know how but I am a bit of a rule follower and the doctors didn't want me to test at all but wait for their test. I also think I was scared to test early and get bummed when it could just be too early. My blood test was positive and I have a beautiful boy, almost one and a half years old now. Hoping to give him a little brother or sister :)

I wish you all the best!
