Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

IVF #2 zero frosties BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have waited forever to make this post! I hope this helps someone waiting because I looked for symptoms and someone that went through what I did. After trying to conceive for 18 months we finally went to an RE and got some help. After 3 failed IUIs and one IVF cycle fail w/ no frosties, as a back up, finally IVF #2 worked. Unfortunately, we do not have any frozen for our next baby but I will happily go through it all again when we are ready for them. I'm so over the moon about my perfect little bean that is growing.

Me (34) DH (37) - low sperm count and we think maybe an egg/sperm issue. I had a low response to fertility meds and only produced 7 eggs each cycle and only this one embryo that I am currently pregnant with survived passed 5 days (13 didn't make it). What a survivor!!

3dt - transferred 2 average embryos. Only 4 & 5 cells (not looking good they want to see 8 cells by day 3)
1 to 9dp3dt - zero symptoms, I was a little sore still from the retrieval and had some soreness when peeing but that subsided each day
10dp3dt - morning of my 1st beta test, I decided to take an EPT test to know what to expect. Faint positive...I almost pass out!! Beta result is 87. BFP!!!
11dp3dt - I'm still nervous since my number was a little low. Slight pink streak...barely noticeable on my pad in the morning (nothing more). Took another EPT, positive and slightly darker...could this be true?
12dp3dt - Take First Response definite BFP (test line is still darker than the positive line). 2nd Beta 230 confirmed PREGNANT!!
14dp3dt - Take last First Response and line is same color as test! This will be my last pregnancy test!!
25dp3dt - first ultra sound confirms one healthy baby. 6 weeks and see tiny heartbeat...heaven!!

I have had zero symptoms. 6 weeks in and feel totally normal. No cramps, no spotting (expect that one morning, I'm sure it was IB). If I didn't see my little nugget with my own eyes yesterday, I would not have believed I'm pregnant. Only thing is I'm beyond hungry...I could eat a horse but that didn't happen until I was 5 weeks. So if you don't feel anything, don't count yourself out. I literally thought the night before my beta that I would never be a mother and was 100% convinced this cycle didn't work. I'm so glad I was wrong! I hope my story keeps at least one person's hopes up. IVF works and you don't always have morning sickness or symptoms!
