Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with Clomid 50mg, cd 5-9 & PCOS

My name is Cheryl and my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for about a year. We had tried to conceive naturally for while and then my husband suggested we get tested. My husband’s tests came back normal whereas mine came back with hormone level issues, possible PCOS. Tested to see if I was ovulating and it looked like I wasn’t.

I was put on Clomid 50mg, days 5-9, for the first time this cycle. I used fertilityfriend.com to chart my temps and it looked like I ovulated cd18. I had tried the OPKs but they never showed a surge. Blood work done at cd23 showed that I did indeed ovulate. As the month went along I had ovulation type pains and cramps that were off and on for about a week, then it went away. I started feeling little changes in my body such as the enlarged breasts and the frequent urination but it was too soon to test, so I kept being optimistic and waited. I finally took and HPT on cd29 and it was positive, faint but positive. I was scared because I thought that it was just too much to hope for on the first try.

I tested a couple more times the following day and finally went in for a blood test on cd30. It came back the next day as POSITIVE!! This also happened to be a day before our anniversary so it was an awesome present to say the least. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and so thankful for my little miracle. As for the Clomid I had very little side effects, mainly hot flashes in the night. It did the trick for ovulation. The only other thing we did differently is use Preseed for the first time. Thanks again to all the ladies who contributed their stories. It was very encouraging to read them all. Good luck and baby dust to all!!!
