Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP with severe MFI

My husband and I were only candidates for IVF with ICSI due to his severely low sperm count(thanks to varicoceles). We weren't even eligible to try IUI, but we were planning surgery for my husband to help potentially make IUI a possibility instead of IVF/ICSI. His counts ranged from zero to 7 million, with less than 2 million being the average result of an SA.
My husband was gone during the majority of my fertile phase but he came home during the end of it and we DTD on my O day, and after 5 days of abstinence. I put a soft cup in after and I guess it did the trick(after 2.5years of ttc.)
I didn't get a BFP until AF was two days 16dpo. That was 10 days before his surgery. I got a BFN at 14dpo, and I had a teeny tiny amount of implantation spotting 11&12dpo. So always believe in miracles, keep room in your heart for the impossible and even if you get a negative late in your LP remember there's still a chance.

Unfortunately my pregnancy was a cervical ectopic(no rupture or damage to my health thankfully) and was unsuccessful so I don't want to go into my symptoms, but I just wanted to share an incredible success story. Don't ever feel stupid for having some hope in a situation that seems hopeless.


I could kiss you right now. Thank you for your story. I'm dealing with similar figures to you and it does feel hopeless and at times i do feel stupid.

I'm so sorry that things didn't work out for you. It's so gutting when you've been trying for sometime and then it's all taken away. 

I pray that you are blessed soon and that your next little miracle holds on tight. X

I commented on your other thread.. I just wanted to also add that I am a firm believer in softcups.. My husband has done 3 SA over the space of 5 months and all very bleak at less than 2mil sperm/ml. We have been trying for 11 cycles now and last cycle I used softcups for the first time and got a faint positive on a PG test. It was also a loss (very very early loss for me - got AF a few days later) but was the one and only time I've ever seen a 2nd line on a pregnancy test, so I will use softcups from here on out :)) They must have done the trick for us too !
Good luck for the future :)
