Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP by FET after 1.5 years of trying

Like most people I have stalked this page for the last 1.5 years. Everyone’s stories kept me sane, strong and hopeful and I promised myself I would post on here if I ever got my bfp! I am 32, DH is 34 and we found out DH had 0% morphology and very high DNA damage - so bad that the consultant advised not even IVF by ICSI would help us. Turns out he had a varicocele causing this damage. He had an embolization performed and 3 months later his tests had significantly improved - enough for IVF by ICSI we were thrilled. I started the IVF procedure which I found pretty straightforward. 15 eggs retrieved, 14 fertilised and 6 made it to blastocyst stage - all top quality. I had a freeze all cycle as I was at risk of OHSS. The very following cycle I had a natural FET where I finally got my bfp at 4 weeks. The day I tested 9dp5dt I was absolutely devastated I cried I even emailed the clinic asking for my next protocol as I was convinced it didn’t work as I felt SO normal. I had very few symptoms and was on cyclogest 2 x 400mg a day. The only things that made me keep thinking maybe was: very light cramping, pulling, bubbling sensation on the left side of my lower abdomen since day of transfer. On the end of 2dp5dt I had the tiniest drop of brown mucus upon wiping and that was it. I also had very soft bowls throughout the two week window and still do - was yellow in colour In the days leading up to bfp. I had ZERO sore boobs throughout the window and have only just started to feel tender at 4 weeks. This was also a sign as I normally always start getting them at around 8 dpo until AF. I also had a VERY dry upper lip for the duration of the two week window which I thought was bizarre as it’s dimmer!! It’s only the last few days where it started to go away. Other than that at times I felt quite periody especially the day I tested and convinced it did not work! I was in absolute shock when I saw the two line!! I promise you it will happen to you! Keep going! Your time will come, lots of love xx
