Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP first Clomid cycle after miscarriage
I had a missed miscarriage and D&E at 7w3d on September 5th. I do not ovulate regularly but I do not have PCOS, so my dr is really not sure why. I have taken 4 rounds of Clomid so far and conceived twice. I only had one cycle after my MMC (not counting the bleeding that resulted from the procedure), which was induced by Provera, but I had 3 months to recover, so my dr said to start trying again. LMP began Nov 22. I ovulated Dec 6 and, of course, my husband was on duty that day so we must have conceived from sex the night before ovulation.
The only symptoms I noticed were 2 days of AF-like cramping on 6 and 7 dpo and a lower back ache on 8dpo. I also was immediately hungry all the time from right after ovulation. I experienced insomnia very early on as well, before my BFP, which I never knew was a pregnancy symptom until last time I got pregnant. This time my boobs hurt way more than they did last time and I've already gone up a bra size by 4w6d. I got a very, very faint positive on a Wondfo at lunch time about 10 dpo but I ignored it because it was so, so faint. Just to be sure, I took a couple more with FMU on 11 dpo. It was still so faint, and I thought one even came up negative. The next time I tested, a faint but obviously positive line came up, and I was so scared. I called my doctor because I knew he wanted to put me on progesterone gel right away. Of course, my husband was on duty the day I found out I was pregnant as well! The next morning he came home to a very obviously positive FRER with a Christmas bow on it. I got my official BFP that really made me believe I was pregnant on 13 and 14 dpo, which was much later than last time. Merry Early Christmas to us! I am very nervous, but have already seen my doctor, have had 3 beta HCG tests done, of which I will know the results on Monday, and I've been scheduled for an ultrasound on January 5th at 6w2d. I can't wait to see what's in there! Hopefully this will be our sticky little rainbow baby.
Oh, and we used Preseed internally both times I got pregnant. I swear by it! It works for me!
I hope this helps someone to have hope of achieving pregnancy after miscarriage. I am pregnant again less than 4 months after my miscarriage!
