Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Finally after 18 months pregnant with my final baby

We had tried for 18 months to conceive our fifth baby. I temped, used opks and took every supplement known to man. It took me 4 years to conceive my first but the next 3 came easily. I thought I was done after my 4th but dh talked me into one more. I thought it would happen easily like my last. I started ttc when I was 34 almost 35. Month after month went by bfn after bfn. I read all of these stories religiously. After a few months I thought I had endo. I ended up having lap and did have stage 1 endo. I had a new ob and I talked to her about clomid to help boost ovulation. She didnt see any need bc she thought I was ovulating on my own bc I had normal cycles. I was temping and noticed some months my temps were low and didnt have a very defined temp shift at ovulation. I took that to her and she still said no. I also found out that she was moving at the end of the year and I was getting another new ob. I was excited about that since I could possibly get clomid from the new dr. So I made an appt with her and she agreed with me and wanted me to try clomid for 3 months upping the dose each month if I didnt get a bfp. After 3 months of that she wanted me to try Femara. First month of clomid (days 5-9) didnt work and I didnt ovulated till cd 27. It was a bust. Second month I went up to 100mg (days3-7) and low and behold I ovulated on day 16. It was a crazy month of staying with my grandma in the hospital and then later died. We were actually going to take that month off due to the circumstances but when I got the positive opk I couldnt resist trying. So we bd cd 15,16 and 17. I also used soft cups after bd.

I had already commenced this cycle as a no go as I had the last 17. I had alot of ovulation pain until ovulation occurred. Then nothing. I was already planning next months ttc plans.
Dpo1-4 Nothing!
Dpo 5 - 9 I started having some mild cramps in the evening which continued until I tested on dpo 9. Other than cramps I didnt have 1 other symptom.
Dpo 9- Tested with FMU and bfn
Later that day I tested again. Im a neurotic tester and dipped 3 more around noon. I went back a few minutes later, totally not expecting anything and to my surprise all 3 tests had a very faint line. Had I not been very familir with these tests I could have chalked it up to an evap but Id never gotten any before. I knew it was an early bfp! Later that day I confirmed with a FRER and positive too! I honestly didnt think we were going to have our last baby. Im now 11 weeks 2 days pregnant! Im so glad I was able to get a new dr that let me try the clomid. Without that I doubt I would have gotten pregnant. Thanks for reading!
