Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP IUI#2 !!!!!
This website has been my place of solace, peace, and hope. And now I want to give back. This was our second IUI with Clomid cycle. We have been ttc for 2 years with no intervention and no luck and now finally I am pregnant! Here are my symptoms by dpo: CD 13- positive OPK (wondfo and Clearblue advanced) around 4pm - confirmed with LH blood work at RE. No trigger needed. HR:75 CD 14 -Day of IUI- cramping from catheter- cramping in colon, uterus, and a little in left ovary. Gassy. Husband's sperm count 6.8million after wash. HR:76 1dpo- very sore nipples, little twinges on left side ovary. HR: 77 2dpo-very sore nipples, twinges of small pain in uterus. HR: 78 3dpo- sore nipples, congested (most likely sinus infection or bad allergies) HR:78 4dpo- sore nipples. Twinges in uterus and ovary 5dpo- sore nipples. Forgot to take synthroid yesterday and this morning--extremely tired by 4:00pm. Like I hit a brick wall. Boobs a tiny bit tender. Twinges and cramps in cervix and right above pubic bone. Gassy. Lots of creamy lotiony cm. 6dpo- sore boobs. Twinges in uterus. Creamy cm. nausea, gassy, diarrhea, acid reflux. Boobs a little sore. 7dpo-diarrhea bad all day. felt like there was a brick in my upper abdomen. Temp of 100.4. Maybe got a stomach bug. Acid reflux. Sore boobs and nipples. Dizzy at night while sitting on couch watching television. 8dpo- stomach a little bit better today. Some ovary twinges. Sore boobs and nipples. Progesterone blood work today. HR:80 9dpo- sore boobs. Little bit of uterine cramping. Tired. HR:78 10dpo- sore boobs and nipples. Little bit of cramping. Super gassy 11dpo- went to pee in the morning and wiped and there was a little reddish blood with a tiny little clot. Cried to my husband--totally figured I was out. Afternoon, I went to check if I was still bleeding and there was just a little bit of brownish stuff when I wiped. So, I decided to take a test to know either way. I tested with an Internet cheapie and all of a sudden a line came up. Faint, but clear as day! I ran to my husband to make sure. He confirmed that it was most definitely a line. Went to drug store and bought a FRER and a digital FRER. BOTH CAME BACK POSITIVE! I was shocked. But also worried. What was that bleeding this morning?? 12dpo- went into RE office to get my first beta and also a progesterone test. Still so early, but needed to know if I was progressing. Low and behold my beta came back at 34 and progesterone at 30 and I'm still 2 days before my period is due! The doctor said the little bleeding I was experiencing was implantation. So it DOES happen, ladies! My husband and I are over the moon, but cautiously optimistic. We are going to take this day by day. But seeing those 2 lines for the first time ever was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. Good luck and baby dust to all the ladies out there!
