Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP With Twins After 2nd Cycle on Clomid!

I am so excited to share my BFP story! My DH and I had been TTC since November 2011. Since I had long and irregular cycles (anywhere from 26-52 days) I saw my doctor after 6 months of trying. She sent me for blood tests and an ultrasound to check for PCOS but all tests came back normal, so I was referred to my gynecologist. He advised that it didn’t sound like I was ovulating naturally and prescribed 50mg Clomid on CD 2-6 in September 2012. My DH’s sperm test came back normal on all measures. We were also advised that there was a higher chance of falling pregnant with twins on Clomid, and were unperturbed. The first cycle of Clomid didn’t work, with my gyno performing an ultrasound on day 13 and follow up blood test confirming that ovulation did not occur. My second cycle on Clomid was 100mg CD 2-6 and below are the TWW symptoms I experienced:
- CD 10 - ultrasound found a 13mm follicle on one ovary (which Dr. said looked very promising) and 8mm follicle on the other (which Dr. said looked unlikely to release given the cycle day)
- Blood test on CD 21 confirmed I had ovulated – woohoo!
- CD 12 – Significant cramping all day on left side (usual for me) and continued to CD 14
- CD 14 – Negative opk in morning, but positive opk at night time
- CD 15 – Positive opk in the morning, negative by night time
- BD CD 10, 12, 14-16
- DPO 1-3 - Felt tight across the belly all day (unusual for me)
- DPO 3 – Pulling feeling in my vagina (TMI sorry!)
- No symptoms DPO 4-7
- DPO 8 – Sharp, sudden pain in left side then gone (too late for implantation?)
- DPO 9 – Lower back pain last couple of days (unusual for me), nipples erect often (unusual for me), tight, full feeling in belly gone
- DPO 10 – Took HPT on internet cheapie and swear I see a very, very faint line when held up against white wall – didn’t tell DH because I thought it was too early
- DPO 11 – Cramping across belly returned today but this is not unusual for me during TWW, increased vaginal discharge (TMI sorry!) which is unusual at this time of month for me, sore lower back (unusual for me), trouble sleeping past 2 nights but could be from book I’m reading. Did not test today.
- DPO 12 – Positive HPT at 5:30am, swear I see a faint line but still very faint on internet cheapie. Go to chemist this afternoon to get FRER to be sure. Still did not tell DH as it is early.
- POSITIVE HPT on FRER at 9pm! Ran from bathroom to living room jumping up and down to show stick to DH. He’s very excited also. Rang my Mum and sister because I was so excited, even though it was early.
- DPO 13 – Positive HPT on FRER fmu – so happy!! Couldn’t sleep last night as too excited. It’s amazing see those two lines for the first time. I took one each day just to keep seeing them come up :)
- DPO 14 – aching feeling all over, like the flu but no other flu symptoms (unusual for me), fatigued all day, sore throat, sore bbs with darker veins, very thirsty all day (very unusual for me), frequent urination. Tight feeling in belly for past couple of days also.
- DPO 19 – blood test confirmed pregnancy! So excited!
19th December 2012 – had a dating scan with gyno at 8 weeks, 4 days to check heart beat and Dr found TWINS!!! To say we are thrilled at hearing two strong healthy heart beats is an understatement! This is truly the best Christmas present we could’ve wished for. I’m currently 9 weeks 5 days, with morning sickness (vomiting in the mornings and nausea the rest of the day) but not even that can dampen my happiness. We are expecting our two bundles of joy on 27 July 2013 (or most likely earlier, being twins). It’s such a cliché but I just knew that this was the month. At first I wasn’t sure whether that feeling was because we got good news about ovulation that we hadn’t had before, but I felt physically different than I had every other month. I am hoping and praying that these babies stick to full term.
Wishing luck for everyone trying – I truly hope those two lines come up for you all x

So happy for you! My story is almost the same as yours (first 50mg, then 100mg, trying since Feb 2012). Hoping for our BFP in January! We are *prepared* for twins, but it makes me nervous ($$$). Congrats!

Thanks so much! Yeah money will be tight but totally worth it :) we couldn't believe it happened so quickly on Clomid - we were pleasantly surprised. I truly hope you get your BFP next month - there is no better feeling than seeing those 2 lines come up. Clomid worked for us so I hope it works for you!

God's blessings to you for safe term and delivery.

So so happy for you. Praying you have a happy and healthy pregnancy :)

Still holding my breath that this is my month.

Hi Stephanie just wanted to know how ur scan went? Are u expecting twins??? X

Congrats on pregnancy!!!!.........eden... did my first cycle clomid April 2013. was wondering if there would be no symptoms at first but then after the first week they came flooding in...my experience was not pleasant...woke up one morning unable to walk because of extremely bad lower abdominal pain. I was worried that i had gotten pregnant and was about to loose my baby...turns out i was not pregnant but i got AF naturally on day 35 of cycle (had to be provera induced previously)....i think maybe clomid work and i ovulated... was disappointed but i am right back on cycle 2...50 mg (same as cycle 1).... Its a new and uncertain experience...we dont know what lies ahead but...we have to soldier on!......All the best ladies!

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site. I've been with my husband for 6 yrs and we've trying for a little over a year now, finally decided to go see the doctor about our issues. I have a regular cycle and I use ovulation kit every month and it's positive, I don't know why it's not happening. Doc planned to let me try clomid, I'll start in it next month, keeping my fingers crossed.

am round 2 of clomid i took d first cycle i ovulate but no luck i just start d second hope and pray i kn this is my time

hello everyone Am on round 2 starting today 3-7, my first was june and i ovu my period is regular 31 days but no luck my period last for 2 days instead of 3 am having back ach is that normal pls talk to me. I hope this work .

I started clomid 50mg this month in July 13 day1-5 I have pcos and my cycle last was 36 days they've been longer I had scan at day15 and had 3 follicles.
I had my progesterone at 21 which was 118 and got my bfp 11dpo booked in fora scan in 3 weeks :) feel like I'm gonna have af but am not sore boobs and hungry every two hours, lots of wind lol good luck x

When did you test for your progesterone? Your result was 118ml? That's really good progesterone. I had mine done on 7/28, 8 days after was opk and the result was 43.7ml, I thought that was good not until I saw yours. Today is day1 I missed my af and tested this morning it was BFN :(. Still keeping my hopes up.

Had follicle scan day 14 which was 15/7/13 ovulated on 16/7/13 then had progesterone day 21 22/7/13 and got my bfp 11 dpo I have my scan in just over a week :) 43.7 is really good if I divide mine by the three follicles I produced it's only in it's 30's and a lot of people have been caught with twins less than 40 ;)
