Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Finally, After 23 Months of TTC, 4 Miscarriages and My Second Round of Clomid, I Got My BFP at 11dpo :)

23 months ago my Husband and I began a journey. It was a journey that we thought would be easy and ended up leading us down an emotional rollercoaster that anyone TTC should never have to go down. We seemed to get pregnant quite easily but always at 5-6 weeks, we'd lose it and be left to pick up the pieces and question if we should even continue trying. In May of 2011, I had my last loss and have not had a positive pregnancy test since. Until today :) My specialist felt that he was going to end up diagnosing me with unexplained infertility and gave me a prescription for 3 months of Clomid 50mg to be taken 3-7 as a "Hail Mary" and the second month was the winner. Here were my symptoms, or lack there of to be honest.

1-7 dpo-nothing
8dpo-dark brown discharge, enough to leak onto my undies and lasted the whole day. I noticed that afternoon that I couldn't finish my smoothie because it made me feel a bit queasy. I also broke out in a few pimples.
9dpo-mild cramping and light pink spotting. I couldn't finish my steak for dinner because I felt queasy again while eating it. BFN
10dpo-more cramping, enough to make me believe that I not only was out for this month, but that I was already psyching myself up for my final round of Clomid and my final month of TTC. BFN
11dpo-I had BIG trouble sleeping and was wide-awake from 2:30am till 5am and that is not usual for me. Woke up to cramps and though AF was probably starting but took a test anyways and had a faint BFP! I took a picture of it for my hubby and he could see it too :) At noon, I took another test and it was even darker than my FMU! I am still cramping and am hopeful that it is the little bean burrowing in good and deep and am off to the pharmacy to pick up my Progesterone and Baby Aspirin that I was told to get at the first sign of a BFP...wish me luck :)

Comments

First let me say that I sincerely hope all is going well for you! Thank you for sharing this - we are in a similar situation - 18 months of trying to conceive, 3 early losses between 5-7 weeks. Our diagnoses: "unexplained infertility" and "recurrent miscarriage." Ouch. We were recently referred to a specialist, had the HSG, an MRI and SA, all seems just fine. Thanks for sharing your story and giving me a little hope!
