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!!!
