Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with cramping and spotting
First off, let me just say I have been in your exact position for 4 years. I've looked up every symptom under the sun to try to figure out if I was pregnant so lets be real... you don't care to hear about my story. I'm going to go straight to my symptoms that I felt after transferring a 5 day embryo!
1dp5dt-2dp5dt: Immediately after transfer I was super gassey and that lasted for the entire day. No other symptoms other than that.
3dp5dt: I kept getting hot flashes at night. I could not get comfortable and I didn't get any sleep
4dp5dt-6dp5dt: Absolutely no symptoms. I was feeling so discouraged cause I read about so many other people having symptoms during this time period.
7dp5dt: no symptoms in the am but at night I went to the bathroom and saw the slightest bit of brown on my underwear and I started cramping. I was so numb cause I thought for sure my period was coming. A couple hours I wiped and it was a brighter red. I thought I was for sure out cause I heard bright blood was not good. I started crying to my husband. During that time I also had a pounding headache which I just thought was from crying so hard.
8dp5dt: spotting is completely gone. There was just residual brown blood but I was still cramping. Just for the heck of it.. I measured my pulse and it was 84 bpm! That was odd for me because it's usually 70 bpm. I still felt like I was out but I kept praying.
9dp5dt: no symptoms other than headaches in the morning.
10dp5dt: beta test!! God gave us our miracle because we got our positive!! Beta was 125
No symptoms at all.
12dp5dt: beta was 324. No symptoms at all
If you're reading this, please do not be discouraged if you don't have any symptoms or you didn't spot. Every pregnancy is different. Before I got my positive I thought I was out. Even though I did write some symptoms down, they were not significant enough to think I was pregnant. After 4 years of infertility which included 2 failed iuis and 2 failed ivfs, the best advice I can give is TRUST IN GOD. whether you do end up pregnant or not, it's all apart of his plan and it will make sense in the end.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5 NLT)
