Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Faint BFP 9dp first IUI!
I was going through first IUI cycle which didn't include any medication...just a natural cycle. I went to clinic 10 days after AF began and got bloods. Got called up the same day for my IUI. Felt like I was lying there forever as the nurse couldn't get the catheter in my cervix and had to call for the Dr. Luckily he sorted it within a few minutes. However this made me feel quite down asif it wasn't meant to be and there was something wrong. That day and the next couple after I suffered mild cramps...i was told to expect this due to the catheter irritating the cervix. 5-7 days post IUI I noticed I had a very dry mouth and felt lightheaded occasionally for about a minute after standing up. Other than that I had no symptoms apart from pulling sensation on the left side...cant remember ever having this before. On the evening of 9th day I caved and took a HPT (Clearblue dye). We waited anxiously ...i told myself to expect a negative as it was still so early. But when we looked we noticed a very very faint blue line!! It was hard to get excited at this point so looking back i wish I'd waited atleast another few days. I did another one the next morning (as this is the best time) and the line was definetely darker so I allowed myself to get excited and tell my mum and other close family. I am now only 13dp IUI i have since done a digital clear blue test which was positive with 1-2weeks on It. Just wanted to share my wee story as I know it's very difficult in the wait time and I was certainly not expecting it to work 1st time or get a BFP so early!! Good luck to all you other mummies to be and I hope you are all successful in your TWW...it can happen first time :-) ! Xxx
