Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Natural miracle after 7 years TTC & IVF

I am still in shock if I am honest and had virtually no idea that I was pregnant at all. As I am a weirdo I still keep track of all of my cycles just in the hope of a natural miracle. If this hadn't happened to me I almost wouldnt believe it. 2dpo - dizzy when wake up 7dpo - started to have slightly tender breasts (thought it was just from the gym and weight training) 9dpo - slight cramping 10dpo - dizzy when wake up 11dpo - brown spotting - usual for me so thought nothing of it 12dpo - brown spotting - super emotional thought for sure my period was coming 13dpo - brown spotting - was thinking that I never usually spot for three days but my body always surprises me with these things 14dpo - spotting had stopped. went for a 12km run and felt a little off, kept pushing as I am training for a half marathon. Got back and felt extrmely light headed and expected my period to come. Thought I would do a test for a laugh and hopped into the shower. I am used to seeing negative tests and have never gotten pregnant naturally. I kept putting off testing as usually my period just comes after the spotting. Got out and was like OMG WTF is this? Called hubby in and he said "oh I think you are pregnant". I was shocked and we were laughing. Stunned and unsure what to do next I called the medical centre and went for a blood test as it was Sunday so my GP was closed. After all of this time, 7 years, multiple IVF's and two chemical pregnancies could this really be it? 14dpo HCG 48, progesterone 60 16dpo HCG 116, progesterone 61 Looking good! When asked what I did differently I initially said nothing, just carried on with life and started to enjoy not having kids LOL. I hadn't been taking my pre pegnancy vitamins and have been exercising pretty hard. When I think about it I have been doing Chinese herbs and I did take DHEA (for egg quality) for a month in Dec - although they say you need to take it for 3 months to see effect.
