BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after trying for years. First IUI with low sperm

Ladies, I have stalked this site so much over the last few years of ttc. And I'm so happy to be able to share my BFP story FINALLY!!

We all have our own stories and what worked for me won't necessarily work for anyone else so I'm so here is just a quick summary of how we got BFP. We were on our first iui cycle with natural ovulation. Docs confirmed ovulation started cd 13 so took ovidrel trigger shot. Had iui cd14 and 15. Hubby had low levels. Cd14 was 6 million and cd15 was 4 million however doc said although levels low his sperm was grade a (4). From 8pm on cd 15 I started taking prometrium and will continue to 12 weeks.

Here are my symptoms

1-6 dpo: nothing

6 dpo: had a weird dizzy episode while at work, i turned my head to talk to a colleague and it was like my eyes took a minute to catch up. Also had a weird implantation dream. Woke up twice in the night and was awake early in the morning and I am not a morning person.

7 dpo: didn't sleep through night again. Felt tired

8dpo: dizzy again and tired

9dpo: really tired awake in night again

10- 13dpo: period like cramps felt just like AF was on way. Feeling down

13dpo: blood test revealed BFP. In total shock!!

I'm now 4 week pregnant and still have on and off cramps had another blood test today and levels are progressing well. Cramps now feel a little less like the pulling cramps of AF and more like zappy cramps. Still having a few dizzy episodes but no sickness and bobs don't really hurt at all. Don't seem to sleep through the night now and waking up before my alarm but also feeling very tired during day. I even went home at lunch one day and had a nap on lunch break.

Thanks for letting me share ladies. I know everyone says it but just try relax and think positive and know it will happen when it's supposed to.

Good luck to all those ttc!! Finger crossed for a h&h 9 months!! :-)
