Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with twins (IVF#1)
After obsessing on my 2WW symptoms for almost 2 years and reading (and rereading) others’ 2WW symptoms in desperate hope for a BFP clue it is only fair that I to share my 2ww story. First let me start by saying I am now 10 weeks pregnant with twins. Yae! After about 10 months of TTC naturally I went to an infertility specialist on the recommendation of my OBGYN. I was told to wait a year but I went after 10 months because I was so anxious to conceive. For the following year my body became a science experiment. The cause of my infertility remains unknown. I did one unsuccessful round of chlomid with an IUI followed by an unsuccessful round of injections with an IUI (and suffered OHSS). After that I had a lap procedure which did not expose a cause of my infertility, just a tiny bit of endo which was removed. Immediately after the procedure I had a chemical pregnancy conceived naturally. The only pregnancy symptom was a delayed period and cramps. My HCG and progesterone numbers never went up so that explains that. I went through 2 more months of injections, one with an IUI. Before moving to IVF I took a 4 month break and TTC naturally. No luck, however I got lucky on my 1st IVF attempt and got my long awaited BFP 8dp5det. FYI-6 embys retrieved, 2 transferred, 4 frozen. I also had assisted hatching, acupuncture treatments & I meditated. I had no pregnancy symptoms other than the symptoms caused by the fertility drugs. Less than a week later I got symptoms including very tender boobs and cramps. The symptoms increased thereafter. But I got my BFP by POAS before any symptoms became apparent.
Good luck and baby dust to all!
