Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP success story with IUI and PCOS (some advice on what REALLY works included)

I am currently in my 9th week and have been on various forums for years waiting to write my own story. This journey taught me a lot about myself and taught me not compare myself to others because we all have individual needs and challenges. I am 31 and have had PCOS since the age of 13. I am not overweight but have always been careful about what I eat as can easily put on weight while my friends could stuff their face with no consequences. I also hardly had periods on my own - had to take birth control hormones to bring my cycle for years. Wish I never did as once you are ready to conceive your body has been messed up by pills and depleted you of certain vitamins. Takes a while to get back to normal. I have been trying to conceive since the age of 28. I had two failed pregnancies : at the age of 29 - miscarried at 5 weeks (conceived naturally) at the age of 30 - ectopic pregnancy after IUI (no tubes were lost due to methotrexate working for me) In total I had 3 IUIs and the last one worked! YAY! 12/26/16 1st day period 12/28/16-1/1/17 femara 01/06 hcg shot 250 01/07 and 01/08: two days of IUU (42 mln sperm) and 01/08 (23 mln sperm) 01/17 BFP!! faint positive 01/19 BFP!! bright positive 01/20 BFP!! confirmed positive blood test HCG 126 01/24 HCg 965 01/26 HCg 2299 ADVICE FOR WOMEN WITH PCOS: I finally got pregnant and attribute it to really CLEANING what I eat and what my husbands eats. I have cut out ALL processed foods, ALL processed Sugar, started juicing every day (mainly 80% veggies, 20% fruit) juices, mostly GREEN (incl kale, spinach, ginger, cucumber, celery, green apple etc). Started eating a clean diet: vegetables, fruit, nuts, fish, meat, chicken, high protein grains like quinoa, buckwheat. We both started taking high quality supplements such as Coast Science PCOS and Coast Science Male Fertility supplement, and some others like Vitamin D, COQ10. Also I went to a well known fertility clinic from the beginning and followed the recommendations of the doctor who was very precise and methodical. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THERE IS NO EASY FIX WHEN YOU HAVE PCOS BUT YOU NEED TO COMMIT YOURSELF TO LIFESTYLES AND DIET CHANGES. NO EXCEPTIONS. IT TOOK ME MONTHS TO REALLY TO DETOX AND FOR MY BODY TO FINALLY CONCEIVE. Also Green Juicing Brought my period back after about a month of juicing! If you regulate your cycles, and clean your diet your body will be in a much better position to conceive and most importantly KEEP the baby. Wishing everyone success in this important pursuit!

Congratulations:) Wish you a Happy and Healthy Pregnancy. I completely agree with cleaning eating. and I would like to tell that losing weight also helped me tremendously to successfully conceive (especially yoga) I also have pcos n hypothyroid and struggled for 5 years to conceive. Was able to conceive for the first time with IUI and had a baby in 2016 and now I have 14 months old baby boy. Now we are planning for baby#2. Hoping for the best this time as well. God bless...Take care!!
