Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP After Miscarriage on Clomid

My husband and I have been "kinda trying" since September 2011 and actively trying (using OPKs) since March 2012. I got pregnant in May 2012 and then had an early miscarriage 1 week later (I guess it was more of a chemical pregnancy). We took a break for a couple of months but have been trying consistently for the past year. Although I haven't been diagnosed, we've seen several OB/Gyn docs who think I have endometriosis. We finally saw a specialist a couple of months ago who said I probably have endo, but also thought my late ovulation is contributing to the problem (I usually ovulate between CD 19-24). So, we finally started our first cycle of Clomid in July since we figured we can't afford to waste more time (we're both 33).

And now I'm pregnant!! Here's a timeline of what happened:
CD 3-7: took 100 mg of Clomid everyday
CD 15: got LH surge
CD 16 or 17: ovulated (I thought it was CD16, but FF says CD17)

So, assuming I ovulated on CD17 here are my symptoms:
1dpo: nothing
2dpo: nothing
3dpo: uterine twinges, mild cramps, slight lower backache
4dpo: uterine twinges, sore right armpit
5dpo: left ovary twinge, sore right armpit
6dpo: vaginal cramps, .3 dip in temperature, sore right armpit
7dpo: sore right armpit. .4 rise in temperature
8dpo: vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, light night sweats, frequent urination
9dpo: sore right armpit, light night sweats, frequent urination
10dpo: sore right armpit, frequent urination, creamy discharge
11dpo: vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, light night sweats, frequent urination
12dpo: uterine twinges, vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, light night sweats, frequent urination, BFN on HPT @ 8pm
13dpo: mild pelvic cramps, vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, mild sore breasts, light night sweats, frequent urination, creamy discharge
14dpo: bloated, mild sore breasts, frequent urination, creamy discharge
15dpo: uterine twinges, right ovary twinge, mild cramps, vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, mild to moderate sore breasts, light night sweats, frequent urination, creamy discharge, BFN on HPT @ 7am, BUT positive on blood test @ 11am!! Beta 30 (very low according to doctor)
16dpo: mild pelvic cramps, vaginal cramps, sore right armpit, mild to moderate night sweats, moderate sore breasts, frequent urination, watery discharge, increased appetite, BFP on HPT @ 3pm (but light line)
17dpo: bloated, mild pelvic cramps, vaginal cramps, light night sweats, sore right armpit, moderate to heavy sore breasts, frequent urination, watery discharge, increased appetite, BFN on HPT @ 4am (freaked out), BFP on HPT @ 8am (but line is still light), Blood test still positive @ 11am: Beta HCG 63 (doubled but doctor is still concerned because it's so low)
18dpo: light night sweats, sore right armpit, heavy sore breasts, frequent urination, watery discharge, increased appetite, altered taste buds (certain foods taste bland)

The only difference between this cycle and previous ones is that my breasts became sore later in my cycle. I usually get sore boobs about 7dpo, but this time, they didn't get sore until 13dpo.

Will be getting another beta reading tomorrow (19dpo)...praying that the levels have increased significantly!! I'm still very nervous about this pregnancy because of my low betas, but the fact that it doubled is a good sign so I'm trying to stay hopeful!

Comments

Congratulations!! I hope those betas continue to double and you have a wonderful, happy, healthy 9 months!!!

Aw, thanks. But I got my beta values back today and they are looking concerning. It's only a 102, so now they're not only low but they also didn't double. I'm worried I'm going to miscarry again :(

Hope all is going well with you x

Im sorry sorry about the betas! My numbers started out find but by 6wks they were not longer mulitiplying like they should. I hope everything will be ok!
