Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP With PCOS and Hypothyroidism
Our History: me: 24-PCOS, Hypothyroidism DH: 26-a little low count (but not much) Ok so here's how this cycle went, we went in to our fertility specialist and he put me on letrozole (2.5mcg-10 pills over the course of 4 days) I'm also on Meformin (PCOS) and levothyroxine (thyroid), fish oil, folic acid, and prenatals. We went in to see how my follicles were growing so we would know when to schedule our IUI. Well he gave me an HCG shot to take home and give to myself. While at our appointment the Dr. told us he would be out of town that week but would still like us to give timed intercourse a try (needless to say I was MAD). We gave it a shot anyway and IT WORKED!! Things I did different this time: I ate a ton of pineapple-I heard it's supposed to help with the lining of your uterus- and we used Pre-Seed:) CD5-Light cramps CD6-Light cramps-semen analysis 19 million little guys! CD7-10-Nothing CD11-Pinching in ovary area CD12-Nothing CD 13- Pinching in ovary areas CD14-Nothing CD15-Pinching in ovaries U/S 15mm follicle and one smaller (I don't know the size) BD CD 16 bd CD 17 Nothing CD 18-HCG trigger shot at 5:30pm- pain in ovary areas, gassy, tired, sore BB's I could have O'd one of the next two days but I think it was CD 20 CD 19-Ovulation? BDx2 dry nipples (weird), 6pmish slight twinge followed by af type cramps O day- BD, sharp pains in both ovaries, minor achy cramps, tired, backache, VERY gassy 1DPObd-Cramps, pinching pains in ovaries, VERY gassy 2DPO-Mild AF cramps, sharp twinges on right and left ovaries, sharp stabbing pains on sides of BB's, scant, dry, tacky CM, VERY gassy, heartburn (could have been what I ate though!) mild nausea when hungry 3DPO-BD AF cramps,BB's sore 4DPO-Heavy AF cramps, bright red and brown streaks in CM (implantation??:)), sore weird activity in BB's, burning sensation in uterus 5DPO and on-Light AF cramps, very sensitive nips, random pains in BB's, nausea, tired. Well I was testing out the HCG shot and the line got light and then got darker so I knew I was PG at 9DPO:) still very skeptical at this point though! I went in for blood test 17DPO and my beta came back at 1525! Woo hoo! We are finally Pregnant! Went back for blood test and U/S at 21DPO beta was 7859! It is TWINS!!! We are so very excited and blessed beyond belief! I know many of you are still waiting on your BFP, it will happen! Trust in God! I prayed and prayed this cycle (and had my family and church praying too!) Please send stick vibes my way and Baby Dust to all TTC!!!
