Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on 5th Embryo Transfer
This was our 5th embryo transfer. It was our third FET. We had done a fresh IVF cycle in October 2013 and it was BFN, an FET in March 2014 and it was BFN. We did another fresh IVF cycle in November 2014 and it was a BFP but I had vaginal bleeding from the day before the beta and it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I had another FET in May 2015 and it resulted in a BFP that started with a beta of 35 and again resulted in a chemical pregnancy. During this FET we transferred two of our frozen embryos and we only have one embryo left. I really had no hope left. We have been trying for 5 years and had 4 failed IVF cycles behind us. I had come to expect bad news. This cycle went very well but so had all the others. I has a lining of 12mm the day of transfer and estrodiol levels of 723 and progesterone above 40. All looked perfect. The transfer was flawless but all the others had been as well. Starting on 3dp5dt I had some cramping. That lasted a couple days. On 5dp5dt I noticed some old brown blood when I wiped so maybe implantation blood. My breast were enlarged and tender but had been even prior to the transfer. I had a random bout of diarrhea on 5dp5dt. On 8dp5dt I had the overwhelming feeling it didn't work. I figured it was my gut feeling trying to prepare me. But we found out on 9dp5dt that we were pregnant and my hCG was 167! So much higher than the last two times and I had no bleeding. So I feel this time is different. I will get my second hCG level tomorrow.
