Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on second IVF
Thank you to all of the women that make this forum happen! I read so many stories that helped me hang on to threads of sanity through these trials! And I'm another story to show it does happen! I absolutely had lost hope. Tried four IUI and one previous IVF all failed. I didn't even have any embryos make it to freeze. Waited 10 months and tried again. Here's the scoop: 14 follicles at ET 11 mature 8 fertilized and grew well (ICSI) Transferred two good quality embryos on Day 3. In total I took four days off including the ET day. Rested and took it easy. I felt twinges and sharp pains for a couple of hours on 5DPT (cd 22). Super sore breasts from the progesterone but I did notice my armpits were very sore, even reaching almost to my back. This started probably around 6DPT. I POAS on 9DPT and it was negative. I really gave up and started reading up on FET (2 embryos made it to freeze!) Was cranky and super tired all week. One night I went to bed at 8:30pm. Had my beta scheduled for 14DP3DT. They drew the wrong test. Nurse called and asked me to go back. Asked if I had taken a HPT. I decided to take one before driving back, and voila! Positive almost instantly! Beta at 17 days past ovulation / retrieval was 358! Beta #2 at 19 days was 640. Tomorrow I get the third. I know those numbers are high, so I'm just praying all is well. I'm so excited, thankful and completely shocked! Me- 35, no previous pregnancies. DH had vasectomy; using donor sperm. The only things I did different this time was: changed the donor, and took an extra day off work.
