Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with God and IUI!!!
I am so happy to finally post my BFP story! My husband and I have been trying for 3 years to get pregnant. I am 33 with no issues and my DH is 49 with a low count. This was our 2nd IUI. We got pregnant with my first IUI in Sept. 2012 but miscarried at 6 or 7 weeks. I ovulate on my own but my RE felt that the more eggs the better the chances since my DH's count is off a bit. Keep in mind the first time we got pregnant I only had one egg and my DH's washed count was 1.5 million. I took 7.5 Letrozole CD3-7. I triggered with Ovidril on CD 10 at 9:15 pm and had 4 follies measuring 17, 19, 19, 21 and DH's washed count was 4 million. We had to trigger a day earlier than he wanted because my DH would be out of town. We had the IUI at 9:10 am CD12. Below are my symptoms:
1 DPIUI- woke up gassy and had pulling on both sides
2 DPIUI- gassy, slight cramping on left side
3 DPIUI- headache, cramping on and off
4 DPIUI- headache
5 DPIUI- nothing
6 DPIUI- light AF cramping, light headache
7 DPIUI- nothing
8 DPIUI- Feel like AF is coming. Woke up with a sore throat
9 DPIUI- Feel like AF is still coming, woke up gassy, tested BFN
10 DPIUI- Thought AF was coming
11 DPIUI- still cramping, gassy, having a hard time sleeping, testing BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12 DPIUI- gassy, sore boobs on and off, headache, hard time sleeping
13 DPIUI- cramping, tummy ache, hard time sleeping
14 DPIUI- cramping and pulling on and off, lower back ache, light pink spotting once on tp only once, slept like a baby
15 DPIUI- cramping, Beta HCG 159, Progesterone 40 and I do not take supplements. I go back in 3 days to check HCG again.
We are super excited and so thankful that God has blessed us yet again! We're staying prayerful that this will be our little bundle or bundles of joy. With my husband's low count our RE wanted us to go straight to IVF but we insisted on trying the IUI first and was successful both times. Keep your faith and stand your ground when you know what is right for you!
