Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Don't give up... There is always hope!

I have stalked the stories on this board for many years and am now thrilled that we can share our story!

A little bit of background... We began our journey 4 years ago. After a year of no luck we were referred to a fertility specialist. We went through 5 OI (ovulation induction) cycles... All negative. All tests to date were normal (hubby had sperm which got a gold star from the specialist.. Hehe)!

We were given the option of a laparoscopy to check for endometriosis or begin IVF. I had no symptoms of endo other than up to a week of spotting before each of my periods. We decided on IVF.

The following IVF and FET (single 3 day and then 5 day embies) were negative. We then decided it was time for the laparoscopy... I was dreading it! Op went really well, turns out I had stage 2 moderate endo, which would have been causing problems with implantation.

Next IVF round was 5 months later, new doc (due to moving cities), new tests (I had speckled ana levels), new protocol (clexane) and new hope.

We put back a very good looking AA day 5 blasto and 8 days past transfer (8dp5dt) I had a squinty BFP... The first time in my life! Confirmed by several pee sticks later and then blood tests.

Symptoms:
Not many unfortunately... Boobs felt a little sore but nothing else.

Best of luck to all the hopeful mums to be out there... I 100% understand the frustration and disappointment each BFN can bring. If you can check for endo or natural killer cells ... Do! Don't be afraid of a laparoscopy.... Just make sure you rest lots and have heat packs at hand for the recovery! Most importantly, don't be afraid to speak to people about your journey... It does help! Love and baby dust to every single one of you x
