Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Little background Me - 39, DH - 37, DS - 15 (from my previous marriage) DX My egg reserve & quality is extremely low. AMA is between .6 & .75 This is our 23rd cycle trying. Very different, positive, excited feeling since CD 11 (even before IUI) never felt like this during any other cycles. Major butterflies! CD 3 - CD 7 - 200 units of Follistim Saturday 3/4 9 PM Trigger (CD 11) Sunday 3/5 9 AM IUI (Only 20 - 30 million sperm due to an accident closing the road & getting there late. It's usually 70 - 80 million) Monday 3/6 7:45 AM Acupuncture (started in January but this was the first cycle of back to the RE since starting) 9 AM IUI (50 million sperm with 60% motile.) Still not his usual 70 - 80 million :-( Thursday 3/9 Trigger tested out (3 DPO) No real symptoms other than sore boobs & bloating which I chalked up to being from the trigger. Still have the very different positive excited feeling Monday 3/13 Acupuncture (7 DPO) Thursday 03/16 tested at night before bed, thought I saw EXTREMELY faint line blew it off (10 DPO) Friday 03/17 tested with FMU and there was nothing. Was hoping to find out on Saint Patty's day for a little luck. (CD 24 11 DPO) Saturday 03/18 started spotting at night, put a tampon went to bed, cried myself to sleep. (usual cycle is 29 days but has been a short as 16 days) (CD 25 12 DPO) CRAZY thirsty all day long & hot flashes Sunday 03/18 8:30 am still spotting, hardly anything on tampon though (sorry TMI) Still have the very different positive excited feeling. Email RE that I won't be in Monday for pregnancy bloods but need appt for new cycle 12:30 PM next to nothing on tampon this is weird! Usually the 1st day is spotting but I wake up with heavy flow the next day! 7:30 PM no spotting since 12:30 WTH I'm taking another test cuz I STILL have the very different positive excited feeling holy crap it's CRAZY faint but there is a second line! Email RE back & say I WILL be in for pregnancy bloods. Crazy thirsty & hot flashes again. Monday 03/20 7 AM Beta HCG 69.8 CD27 14 DPO Crazy thirsty & hot flashes again. Tuesday 03/20 All same symptoms Boobs are hurty more & nipples are tingly & weird feeling. Wednesday 03/22/17 7 am Beta HCG 175 MORE than doubled Waaaa hooooo!!!!!!!!!! CD 29 16 DPO Same symptoms. Bright red bleeding this morning when wiping, RE says it can happen when DTD, it's from new blood vessels and something else about the mucas and all. Turned to brown scant spotting now.
