Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on 3rd Clomid cycle
We finally did it!! It took us 11 months of TTC. This was our 3rd Clomid cycle. We upped the dosage this cycle to 100mg for 7 days. Positive OPK on CD17. Ovulation CD18. Had sex CD13-18, multiple times on O day. 1-2DPO: mild cramps 9DPO: mild cramps and a weird pinching feeling in my lower abdomen. BBT dropped below coverline. 10DPO: BBT went back up. Mild cramps. Sore breasts. Typical period symptoms so I figured I was out again. 11DPO: Intense nausea. I felt bloated and thought I was going to throw up every time I moved. Super tired and napped during the day. Breasts were super sore. My hands and feet had a weird rust-colored tint to them. 12-14DPO: Nausea lessened, but still there. Sore breasts. 15DPO: Tested with FMU and got a faint line with a wondfo. Tested again with a FRER later and got a very clear positive. The only things I did differently this cycle were: 1) Increased dosage of Clomid and 2) Drinking Plexus for 2 weeks at the beginning of my cycle. I'd heard it helped to kind of reset your hormones and figured I'd give it a try. We also continued using Preseed during fertile days.
