Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Miracle Baby #2 Via Gestational Surrogate

I am so beyond elated to be sharing my BFP news! Short summary and then I'll get to her symptoms. I am a Breast Cancer survivor and I am on a medication that doesn't allow me to get pregnant again. I have a 2.5 year old son that was conceived naturally after 10 months of TTC after being diagnosed with Ovulation issues. We decided to go with a gestational surrogate to complete our family. I did IVF prior to chemo and had 4 5day blasts frozen. We did a single embryo transfer as per my age at the time of freezing (just turned 34) and the quality. Which wasn't perfect so don't get discouraged!! 4BC grade when frozen and then survived the thaw 100%:) Transfer went picture perfect her lining was 10.5 at transfer time. One day of semi bed rest and then she flew home the next day. We didn't find out until Beta no HPT. 1DP - cramping ( needed to take tylenol) 2dp- She caught a bad cold.Sore throat and coughing so dont worry if this happens. Cramping. 3dp- Still sick. Sore and swollen breasts 4dp-Still sick- very dizzy 5dp-Still sick- dizzy and tired 6pd- feeling better but still dizzy and sore breasts 7dp- mild cramping, sharp pain in groin 8dp- cold almost gone, light brown discharge on liner, pains on right side of groin 9dp- sore breasts still 10dp-little tired 11dp- little tired still 12dp- beta day or so we thought!! The machine at the lab broke couldn't get results until next day! I thought we were out. 13dp- exhausted and Beta was 100!!progesterone was perfect too!!! This baby is an absolute miracle after such a nightmare. We are beyond appreciative of this miracle!! Never give up ever!


Congratulations! So happy for you!
