Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
IVF Two Week Wait
I wanted to write this and share my experience since I read over and over again these blogs and it really helped. This is my first ever blog and I promised myself if I got a positive result that I would post my story in hope that it may give others some comfort
I am almost 41, five rounds of IUI and just finished an IVF cycle - my first. So I only had 7 eggs collected which made me very nervous as my friends had between 15-25. I ended up with 1 grade one egg and two grade twos and the remainder also fertilised but at a lower grade. So three embryos were transferred back.
The two week wait well..... the pegesterone made me constantly bloated and had random stabbing pains. On day 9 after transfer I couldn't wait and did a home pregnancy test which was negative and clear blue brand. I thought that was it as only 3 more days until the blood test. Needless to say this afternoon when the doctor called me to say I am pregnant with a beta of 200 I was in disbelief. I had period pains the dull kind of a ache constantly for the past three days and I was convinced that was about to start my period.
I still have the same aches and pains now as I lie in bed and I just hope that the next two weeks before the first scan that the baby continues to grow as I know this is supposed to be the most unstable time for development. So I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope that anyone who is out there who took a pregnancy test and it was negative and is suffering period pains there is still a lot of hope.
Let's hope that the next milestone is met and then take it step by step. Good luck everyone and don't loose hope. Xxx
