Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with PCOS/Clomid 2nd attempt

Hi Ladies,
I have been stalking this site since a long time and I decided that when I get a BFP I will write and pass on encouragement and hope to other fellow women going through this trauma..
I m 29 year old and my hubby is 32 years old. We have been trying to conceive for a year. I knew i had PCOS since I was 15 years old. My gynac at that time said "Make sure you try for babies right away because you would have trouble". Fast forward to today. We went to RE after reading good reviews about him. Our first appointment lasted for 2 hours, he explained everything and course of action. We started with clomid 100 for 5 days in May. I fell pregnant in June. However the HCG kept reducing and I had very early miscarriage. I was heart broken and cried for days. Doctor suggested trying clomid again for the next cycle, however my left ovary was very stubborn and the dose didn't help the follicle to grow as required. He then up my dose further. I ovulated little late than last month and unlike last month I didn't had the usual ovulation cramps which made me think this month is wasted as well.
14 days after my positive OPK, I checked tried HPT, i had no hopes and got a BFN. Doctor told me just wait for periods, if it doesnt show up in 3 days try HPT again. After 3 days, tried the HPT, and voila BFP! I could believe my eyes, I woke my husband at 4.45 am to ask him if he could see the line or I m hallucinating.. how can it be possible. Next day did a blood draw and HCG came out to 284! Did followup HCG and it had the right value again.

Frankly speaking we didn't do anything different than last month, had folic acid supplement,metformin and healthy lifestyle. I had my ultrasound last week and saw a bright beating heart.. which brought me to tears!

Today I m 7 weeks 6 days pregnant and I didnt had any nausea , morning sickness or crazy cramps. In fact I dont feel pregnant at all. I do have food aversions, frequent trip to bathroom, bad acne.

Hoping and praying for a healthy baby and full term.

For all those ladies out there, no matter what happens or what people say.. don't lose hope! Medicine and science has come too far along and maybe you would live the marvel in your lifetime!
