Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP w/ Femara- No major symptoms

I said if I were to get a positive HPT I would post because there may be someone with similar symptoms / or lack of. My husband and I have been trying off and on for 6 months. I was seeing a doctor who tried me on 3 rounds of clomid (nothing negative to say because my son was conceived on clomid) but it did not work for me, did not ovulate. That doctor wanted me to automatically go to a fertility specialist but I knew there were other options (our insurance in Texas does not cover fertility specialist). I switched doctors who then stated that Femara is another option when clomid fails. I was tested for PCOS and although I have cyst I tested negative for PCOS. I started with 2.5mg of Femara and I did not ovulate. I then tried 7.5 and FINALLY ovulated on CD 19 but BFN :( I then asked about metformin and she agreed to let me try it with this cycle. So I was on 500MG metformin and 7.5 Femara and ovulated on CD 16. This was the first month that I really relaxed. I stopped goggling everything because I was doing it every chance I got. I stopped symptom spotting. There were so many other months when I could have sworn I was pregnant. Plus I was incredibly busy with work, had a Halloween party, so my mind was very occupied during my 2WW. Also I did not test sooner than 11 DPO. In the past I was testing at like 7DPO lol (crazy I know) CD11- BD CD12- CD13- BD CD 14- went for ultrasound and 2 large follicles (22mm and 23mm). Doctor said I would probably ovulate within the next 2 days. CD- 15 Positive OPK BD twice AM & PM CD 16- Strong ovulation cramps that lasted most of the day. BD 1 DPO - opk still positive. BD 2 DPO- opk looks like its going negative in the AM, but positive in the PM (dark as control line) 3 DPO- Opk positive 4 DPO- finally opk getting lighter, no symptoms. 5 DPO 6 DPO- started to get mild cramps late in the day. Very mind but enough to notice. 7 DPO- cramp got a little stronger but nothing like AF cramps. I sit at a desk at work so I really noticed them today. 8 DPO- 9 DPO- had a Halloween party and usually I can drink ALOT but had no desire. This is so bad but I can drink like 8 beers and a few shots and be okay ( I have a high tolerance) but after 2 margaritas and 1 beer I felt drunk! I had to go lay down. BD. Cervix is extremely high, so high its like its blended into the walls and closed. This was a MAJOR difference than any other months. 10 DPO- Tired, I associated it with the party. Nipples a little tender. Cervix is still high out of reach, I think this is what made me want to test. 11 DPO- Halloween Day, work up in the AM, had so many cheapies hpt, decided to take one. Took it, went up stairs to get clothes for work and came back down with a faint BFP. I was so happy, I could not believe it. I read so many stories about women getting faint positives but never thought it would be me especially at 11DPO. I do not want coffee which is HUGE because I will drink like 5 cups through the day. I have no desire to drink coffee. Tested with a FRER digital and YES+ 12 DPO- Tested with digitial and PREGNANT 1-2 week appeared 1st doctors appointment is at 6 weeks, so on November 14th, SO I AM PRAYING ALL GOES WELL!!!!!! So the cramping at 6/7 DPO was implantation. I had no spotting, no real symptoms except being extremely tired. Even now at 15 DPO my breast are not sore, just a little on top. Nausea a little this morning. HPTs are getting a little darker each day :) :) Hope this gives someone hope!!!
