Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After one cycle of Clomid.
Hi, I think I owe everyone on this website my BFP story... I have been lurking at zillion BFP stories here for almost a year now.
Hubby and I started trying to have a baby in March'15. After two monts of trying with no success ( we thought getting pregnant was so easy sigh! ), I went to OBYGN to make sure everything was Ok. Doc told us that I have a retro cervix meaning in order to get pregnant, we have to doggy style when baby dancing for hubby's sperms to reach faster directly to my cervix. We did that every month until August cycle when we found We were pregnant!! But unfortunately the pregnancy ended the following month at 9 weeks. Doc confirmed it was a spontanous abortion. I had some spotting one day and it continued to heavy bleeding just like period. I had a D&C in Sept 25th, 2015. I finally had my period 37 days later on Oct 29th. And another period in December 5th - 37 days later. I went to OBGYN who confirmed that I had not ovulated post DC considered the 37 day cycle. So he prescribed clomid to help me ovulate, which I did. While Hubby was sent to the lab to get his sperms checked. He confirmed I had 2 almost mature eggs ( one was bigger than the other one ), so we BD'ed 3 times that month - every other day.
Meanwhile we also found out that hubby sperms result did not come out good. He only has 2 % morphology though normal counts. So at this point we were only betting at the 2 percent. looking at the result, our OBGYN recommended us IUI to speed up the pregnancy, but we told him we would think about it. Basically he confirmed with the sperm result, we needed to have IVF or IUI. So we were planning to do IVF in May 16 while fixing our lifestyle.
Since November we also tried to alter our lifestyle. We work out a lot, cut down on carbs, eat more protein, fruits and drank lots of juice. Our mindset was just trying to do our best and let God do the rest.
And surprisingly : BFP! It was really shocking. We kept staring at the stick and thought we were both being delusional. It still seems surreal even now.
So below is the detail of my TWW symptoms:
DPO 1: pulling sensation in my abdomen, ovulation like pain. Thought it could be the clomid's side effect.
DPO 2: the pain continued and spreaded to my back, so I thought we didn't want to miss the opportunity so we BD'ed again. This was Christmas day.
DPO 3:I woke up sneezing and I thought I caught a cold. My body felt warm.
DPO 4: Same as DPO 3
DPO 5: back hurt, weird twinges in my lower abdomen ( esp. In the middle part). I had this kind of pain last month when I didnt ovulate so I thought this was just my body gearing up for period
DPO 6: Back pain, slight cramps on the right side of abdomen ( AF style pain ) and white creamy CM. They said clomid do all kinds of crazy stuff. So sigh...
DPO 7 : I felt fine!!! Boobs hurt but only a little - they were heavy but aside of that, nothing. White creamy cm continued but less.
DPO 8 : same as DPO 7
DPO 9 : I had more CM, white sticky and watery CM ( I never had CM between OV and period/pregnancy, so this was new )
DPO 10: cramps on the left and rightside of abdomen and CM continued.
DPO 11: cramps more intense, I swam on this day and I could feel it more in the water. Back pain and sticky CM, craving for something sour and spicy. I felt so tired during the night and went into a deep sleep.
DPO 12: I ran for a little bit, thought the back pain was more intense and needed to fixed with a little exercise. After I ran, felt so tired and took two naps. Boobs hurt much and sticky CM
DPO 13 : Woke up at 4:30 AM, had a sudden thought to POAS. Used a cheapie stick and came out really faint. I went back to bed and woke up to check it again at 8 AM - it was darker. I was not convinced. The whole day cramps were more intense mostly on the left sife of abdomen and spread to my back. At this time, I didnt tell hubby abt the whole POAS thing.
DPO 14 : POAS in the morning, BFP - faint line but more apparant. Called hubby to go into the bathroom and he confirmed it was BFP!!!
DPO 15: Blaring BFP at 8:45 PM.
We are cautiously very happy... hoping this one sticks!! We don't know what the future holds for us... We are just hoping for a healthy and full-term pregnancy this time around.
