Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP finally after 3 IVF & 2 FET!!!! There is always hope....

Me: healthy, 35 Dh: low sperm counts (2-11 million), 32 We tried naturally for 11 months and I just new something was wrong. I took my temp & used opk's but I was so regular I knew within hours when I would ovulate--so frustrating!! So my dh agreed to get tested and the results were heartbreaking. I left that appt hopeful that the clomid my dh was prescribed would def work. 3 months later and his numbers were the same. Next came the fertility dr, I thought he would say let's try IUI, but we left that appt with brochures explaining IVF. We were devasted! I had no idea how we were going to afford IFV since my dh was working partime and I work for myself= no insurance that covers IVF. A few months later-- Lots of praying and lots of luck,my dh got on full time with full benefits. I was beyond ready so we got started right away. I responded GREAT to all the drugs and had 13 eggs retrieved (round 1), 14 eggs (round 2), and 15 eggs (round 3) but nothing worked. Each time we put back 2 great looking embryos but every time BFN! I was at a loss....we had 1 more chance that insurance covers for a lifetime so I did some research. I wasn't overly happy with my current dr and the way he ran his practice-- soo many patients and he didn't even know my name on my 3rd surgery. I found a new dr and it just felt right!! We did a fresh cycle then froze the 2 best embryos right away and gave my body a month to rest. Got my BFP 9 days later!! Only thing I added this cycle was baby aspirin and COQ10 I was very open about the process this time around and actually filled out a prayer card at church-- I literally said it out loud and prayed like crazy! I'm 14 weeks today but going thru all the ups & down of infertility it still seems unreal. I'm not gonna say "It'll happen, don't worry", because sometimes it doesn't happen- you need some assistance. I'm just glad I didn't wait, didn't stay with my old doctor, and didn't take any breaks. Taking the drugs was a part time job...in the car, in a restaurant bathroom, shots in the stomach, in the ass.... But you just do what needs to be done!

I forgot-- I also did acupuncture and went gluten free! I think both of these things played a huge role in my BFP!!
