Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on New Years Eve 11 dpo MF
The name lastleaf comes from watching bugslife (disney) with my adopted daughter a hundred moons ago. Deciding winter is coming (cut off age to have baby) and the last leaf of fall was about to fall...Against motility issues that went from a super low percentage to 0 percent motile. Turning 45 with that issue looming in the background, 17 year relationship ending and was ready to defer my baby dreams when a friend asked to surrogate for me. I decided WHAT DO I HAVE TO LOSE? I started reading EVERYTHING on treating low motility. The count was 57million morphology was terrible too! I began a STRICT vitamin program this past summer. I've read so many threads and posts to give me insight and to keep me going when I felt like calling it quits. I decided if we got a BFP I would share our story in Hope's of passing on hope. 2000mg Vitamin C 100mg Zinc 200 mcg Selenium 1000mg L-Carnitine 1000mg L-Arginine 10mg Lycopine 100mg CoQ10 1000 mcg B12 800mg Ashwandga root 450mg Vitamin E 450mg Saw Palmetto 1000 iui D3......EVERY DAY (split up 1/2 twice a day) I used mostly Walmart spring alley or walgreens finest nutrition. And 2 rounds of antibiotics in 6 weeks time for good measure. I immediately notice a consistency change in semen. I didn't get a follow up analysis because of the BFP literally just happened! Cycle One : We used clearblue digital OPK, and some cheapies OPK,and preseed. We ICI on cycle day 12 13 14 15. With ovulation on cycle day 14. It ended in a BFN. I went back to reading and discovered ladies were praising softcups! I learned sperm needed a 10 hr head start for capacitation to be able to fertilize. We immediately decided to incorporate softcups into our program. This is what made it happen for us.... Because of my surrogates remarkably consistent cycle timing (which hinders most) timing wasnt an issue for us. We always started testing for O day 10 at 10 am with clearblue and at 6 PM with cheapy. After smiley we used cheapy until line faded (because clearblue is expensive) incase something did change . Surrogate inseminated between 9am to 10 am. She coated with preseed first and then inseminated sample on cervix and immediately put in softcup. CD 12 ICI CD 13 ICI (SOLID SMILEY 2PM) CD 14 ICI 8 DPO ONLY SYMPTOM WAS FATIGUE BFN 9 DP0 CLEAR THIN MUCUS (MORE THAN NORMAL)BFN 10 DPO CRAMPY STILL MUCUSY BFN 11DPO RIGHT BEFORE MID NIGHT THAILAND TIME (IM ON HOLIDAY FOR 2 MONTHS) BFP! HAPPY 2019 TO ME! 2ND CYCLE I BELIEVE IT WAS MOST DEFINITELY THE SOFTCUPS, VITAMINS, AND PRESEED THAT BROUGHT HOME THE BACON! PS. We started mucinex to help with CM 7 days before predicted O day.... GOODLUCK TO ALL. OH yeah, wondfo is the test we got our BFP on. Save you some MONEY and get them on ebay. You get 50 O test and 50 preg. test it helps with POAS ADDICTION.
