Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP With First FET
I am so excited to finally get to share my story! My husband and I have been married for 9 years, and have been trying to conceive in some way the entire time (didn't start infertility treatment until about four years ago). Over the years I have lurked on this site, hoping to have symptoms of a bfp. We did one IUI which was unsuccessful, tried on our own again for about a year and a half, did our first IVF last fall (unsuccessful), but froze 5 blastocysts with that cycle. In February I started to medication prep for my FET. We transferred two day 6 blastocysts (one hatching) on March 21. My symptoms started almost immediately after transfer. I was on progesterone shots starting 5 days before transfer, so some symptoms could be from that, but they didn't start until the night after transfer. Here are my symptoms: Transfer day 3/21: sleepy, low back pain, fullness in abd, lots of twinges 1dp5dt: low back ache, uterine twinges 2dp5dt: low back ache, emotional, lots of dreams, uterine twinges 3dp5dt: low back ache, uterine twinges all day, emotional, sleepy, lots of dreams 4dp5dt: slightly less low back ache, slightly less uterine cramping. At night two sharp intense pains in left breast, lots of dreams, weird sleep- waking up super early 5dp5dt: POAS first thing in the am. Faint positive, clear enough to text my friend and she could see it (without dismantling the test, and line showed up quickly!!) very achy all over today, tired, full feeling abdomen, thirsty, very severe low back pain by the end of the night. Darker positive in evening after work only holding urine about 2 hours! Continued to get darker positives throughout the week. Finally got in for my beta 11day post transfer - 294!!!! Second beta 13 days post transfer- 844 :) Third beta 15 days post transfer 2249, no more betas needed, going for my ultrasound next week to see how many took!
