Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 5dp5dt!!
I'm so excited to finally be able to post my story here! I have been using this site as life support and to fuel my symptom spotting through 1.5 years of ttc. After 3 failed IUIs, we moved to IVF and created 3 pgs normal embryos. Last week, the best embryo (5AA) was transferred (FET) and I began my countdown.
d0p5dt: Single embryo transferred around 3p. In the middle of the night that evening I had some zings around my lower pelvic area for a couple of minutes.
d1p5dt: mostly no symptoms, super discouraged
d2p5dt: nothing much all day until around 5p felt a crazy sharp stabby pain that basically radiated up my whole left side. couldn't really pinpoint this to uterus specifically, but it took my breath away. Later in the evening I had dull AF like cramps for a couple of hours, but nothing by the time I went to bed.
d3p5dt: boobs a little bit 'zingy' but not sore in the AM. Dull AF like cramps on and off around noon. No symptoms for rest of day, back to being discouraged.
d4p5dt: woke up feeling nothing. at around noon suddenly my heart was racing for no reason for about 15 min and I got breathless. Worried this was a reaction to coffee. A few transient zings and twinges around lower pelvic area throughout the day, but now happening in the right side also which confused me. Started getting gassy in evening.
d5p5dt: decided to POAS bc if I ended up with a 0 beta I wanted to know if there was a chem pregnancy just to know that I could get pregnant at least. Surprised to see a faint line. I was pretty blissed out for rest of day and I wasn't hypervigilant on symptoms anymore, but when I checked in, there were a few little zings and twinges in lower pelvic area occasionally. Gassy in the evening again.
After getting my BFP I've chilled out a ton with symptom spotting. Today is 7dp5dt and the lines on the test have been getting darker which is encouraging. I managed to get my beta bumped to tomorrow so will update when I have the numbers!
