Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with IVF ICSI
Hey everyone, I just wanted to share my BFP story after stalking this site for over a year now!!
My partner and I got married in May 2015 and started ttc straight away! We tried all the tracking ovulation methods but each month AF would turn up right on cue. Deep down I always had a feeling something wasn't quite right but people kept saying 'you're stressing too much', 'it will happen when u stop trying', etc etc blah blah all the stuff u dont want to hear.
Well after a year and not even a hint of a second line we decided to both get checked out. All my tests came back clear and positive but unfortunately my partners results weren't very good. We were dealing with Severe MFI - a count of 4 mil and of that motility and morphology were also poor. We felt helpless and numb.
Next stop...fertility clinic consult in July this year. After more tests we were told our only option was IVF with ICSI. It was scary that our only option was peoples last option. But at the same time I was relieved we still had hope!
Our cycle started September 11th and we had our Fresh Embryo Transfer on the 28th. Unfortunately none of the other embryos survived but our one surviving blastocyst looked good!
I have to say I was too scared to track the days past transfer too closely but I did have some pulling/twinges on my left side 3dp5dt but I wasn't sure if that was just the progesterone I was on! Plus sore boobs and bloating throughout the 2ww!
I caved and tested on Oct 7th (9dp5dt) and saw the most beautiful thing I've ever seen..2 pink lines!! And not even a squinter! It was confirmed later that day by blood test.
Feel like I'm dreaming right now especially to fall on our first IVF cycle! I just pray this little poppyseed sticks and stays strong! I never thought it would happen..but just keep the faith and never give up!
