Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Donor eggs at 43

I've been on this journey for 2.5 years now. I remember sitting in the RE's office discussing a plan in June of 2013 and wanting to get started right away. I was 40 then. After several iui's, 2 tubal reversal surgeries, 2 HSGs, 5 ivfs, here is my 4th BFP since the journey began. I had a couple of chemicals and two miscarriages. I just turned 43 a couple of months ago.

Here is my step by step journey to my BFP.
We did ivf again this time. We transferred one 4BA 5-day blast on Monday, 12/21/15. We did a frozen transfer of one emBaby this time.

I will count fertilization day as ovulation day.

5dpo- transfer day 12/21/15
6dpo- (1dp5dt) nothing different but did have twinges and felt dizzy
7dpo-side boob twinges, AF like cramps, thirsty, vivid dream
8dpo-vivid dream, twinges above pubic bone
9dpo-vivid dream about implantation spitting on underwear. No symptoms today, getting worried
10dpo-vivid dream
11dpo-vivid dream, have been very gassy -
TMI- burping and flatulence. It's quite excessive and malodorous. Mild side boob twinges both sides. Runny/drippy nose- odd for me. Progesterone shot sites were really sore and they have been tolerable up until this night before going to bed. Very irritable. Got annoyed with DH easily today. A lot of holiday traveling today. Worried it didn't work again and listened to meditations and visualized it working and our baby growing inside me.
12dpo (7dp5dt)- beta day. Dizzy today. Woke up at 4:30 am. My RE likes to do betas early. I tested with a FRER, it came up positive within a minute. It was a nice, strong line. Gas is getting a little better, AF cramps still present. I feel that my boobs are a little more full than they have been. Feeling blessed and hopeful this is going to be our take home baby. We've been praying every day for a child for the last couple of years. Beta is today waiting for my results. All day not too many symptoms. Just feeling blessed to have this opportunity.

Congratulations and a happy and healthy 9months!
