Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

FET IVF BFP - Over 40

My husband and I tried for nearly 5 years to conceive (assisted and unassisted) but were left with a diagnosis of "unexplained infertility" and a lot of sadness. Hitting my 40's didn't make things any better! When our natural IVF was converted to an IUI in 2010 (only 2 eggs produced), we were devastated - took a break until 2011 - and then turned to egg donation. In late 2011 we did a fresh transfer of 2 5d embryos - bfn. Again, devastation! We had 8 frozen 5d embryos (top grade, chosen from 15 total) and had 2 transferred in late Feb/12. BFP!! FIRST EVER POSITIVE PG TEST!!!! We were ecstatic! Our DS was born 3 weeks early via c-section Oct 19/12. In September we decided it was time for #2 (not getting any younger here) and began our second FET cycle - oh the shots, and all the lovely swingy hormones started again (honestly not sure how my husband survives it) and on Oct 3/13 we had 2 more snowbabes transferred (both were hatching, good sign)....of course I started POAS literally 2 days afterwards and got bfn's until 4dp5dt when I got a super-faint pink squinter that evening. I was so eager to confirm it the next day with FMU that I barely slept (and hubby had no idea)....lo and behold that beautiful double pink line, though faint, was absolutely undeniable on 5dp5dt. Lines are getting darker every day - beta #1 is in 4 days and #2 is in 6. Praying for another sticky bean!!!

So happy for your family. 40's here too and looking into this.

Congratulations!! I'm in the process of an egg donor cycle (on lupron still and donor just started stimming) and I'm so so so thrilled and excited for our prospects. I wish you the best of luck and an amazing pregnancy!

Wow what a great story, My situation is similar. Congrats and FX for a healthy sticky bean!!
