Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with Endo/TTC for 22 months
Just got my BFP today after quite a long TTC road. 22 months of TTC, endo stage 2 removed in April, 4 IUIs, 6 months Clomid, and we got pg on a break cycle!!!!
Here's the story of this BFP cycle:
Ovulated on day 8 (usually day 16 on Clomid and 20 w/o meds).
Didn't find out until CD 9 that I had already ovulated... luckily we had well-timed BD on CD 7... had NO idea that we were TRYING at that point.
No meds-- just exhausted my 6 months of Clomid, had 4 IUIs (2 since the laparoscopy) and didn't feel a peace about moving to injectibles just yet.
No Caffeine-- very important-- I just quit caffeine 2 months ago and on month 1, I had a chem pg and this month a BFP! We also tried Preseed this month!!
After chem pg at 5 weeks last month
Mid-cycle bleeding-- it freaked me out-- 4dpo had some heavy spotting-- old blood... very scary!
Spotting last night (13 dpo) and very moody-- was VERY sure AF was on her way!
Progesterone supplements-- took it once the blood test verified that I o'd early. Progesterone level on 4 dpo was 9.2, so kinda low.
So far only symptoms are fatigue, cramping/pulling, and sore bbs. Bring on the symptoms... I'm thrilled!
Just wanted to share-- I always looked for symptoms like mine during the TWW, so hopefully this will provide some encouragement to someone. Above all else, I believe that God is in control and is the creator and giver of life. Although it has been a huge struggle to TTC, sometimes the harder the struggle, the sweeter the prize!
