Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Late BFP After 7 Years TTC

I can't believe I'm posting on this website that I've been trolling for years and years!

Me 31 blocked tubes due to surgery + inflammation from adhesions and ovarian cysts. Regular28 day cycle, ovulate regularly.
I was persistent with getting tests done to determine Low iron, vitamin d deficient and recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis-autoimmune disease.
DH 41 perfect thank God!

First 2 years, we tried naturally without any doctor visits. Then moved on to IUI. After 2 fresh IVF & 1 FET failed, our 2nd FET was a success.
I believe my success has to do with me obsessingly researching my symptoms and finding the right doctors to treat me. I made an appt with an endocrinologist and requested I have my thyroid along with other tests checked out. I am currently on synthoid treatment for hashimotos along with taking my vitamins diligently. Liquid iron, 4000 mg omega 3, 200 mcg selenium, 1 mg folic acid, and 4000 IU vitamin d3.
It's been a looooooong road of doctors poking, prodding, ups, downs, hopes and dreams.....

Symptoms for my first ever BFP natural cycle FET: 6day blast transferred 5dpo.
5dpo transfer day, no symptoms, taking endometrin 3x per day for progesterone support. Stayed in bed all day/night.
6dpo mild twinges, stayed in bed all day
7dpo mild twinges, nothing really notable. Minimal house activity, made a sandwich and went bk to bed.
8dpo gassy
9dpo gassy, thirsty (I don’t usually drink much throughout the day so this is unusual)
10dpo gassy , boobs getting sore, very thirsty
11dpo late night mild cramps, sore boobs, watery discharge, lots of gas cramps throughout day, emotional, very thirsty.
12dpo moderate cramps, watery discharge during day, strong AF cramps at 2am woke me up from pain, feels just like AF is coming.
13dpo same as above. faint + AM but disappears after 2 mins on Life brand blue dye test. Not convinced. Test again in PM negative. Ugh emotional roller coaster.
14dpo gushing watery discharge feeling like I’m becoming incontinent but think it might be from endometrin except its clear watery and not clumpy.
15dpofaint + AM after 10 minutes but pamphlet says "disregard results after 10 mins" so I guess I cant rely on this life brand. Feeling like if I was pg, it should show up strong on test by now, feeling very discouraged.
16dpo super sore boobs, mild-moderate AF-like cramps all day on and off. Freq trips to urinate.
17dpo +test on first response digital says "yes"!!! Yay :) I can’t believe it. It’s a miracle. DH woke me up at 8 am to test, I poas then walked out of bathroom and told him I don't wanna see the results. He called me bk in 30 secs later to show me the awesome news :)))) I'm still in shock. Praying for healthy pregnancy and baby xoxoxo

Don't give up, pray, listen to your intuition and take charge of your fertility!

GL to all & God bless!

Congrats! As I read your story I started thinking. Have you ever been tested for Celiac Disease? Your symptoms are consistent (Thyroid autoimmune disease, low iron, low vit D and 7 years infertilty) with Celiac symptoms, all the way down to unknown fertility issues that you had suffered. It is one of those diseases that many doctors are not 'current' in their knowledge of so that can get tricky. If you have it though, the good news is that it just requires a change in diet by not eating gluten. ALso, your fertility issues could resolve if you have hopes of having more than one baby! Good luck!
