Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

PCOS, 1st month injectable meds and IUI...BFP!

As much as I have stalked this site, I promised I would post when I had good new! I'm 35, have PCOS/irregular periods/don't ovulate on my own, no other issues besides being overweight 5’6” 197 pounds. Have 2 kids already (ages 12yrs and 14yrs) Tubes are clear, uterine lining is good. Clomid and natural BD'ing did not work for me. Last month, Hubby’s count was good but motility was a little low, so hubby took GNC Men’s Fertility Blend all last month. Dr. also had me on birth control for 3 months to make sure old lining was being shed.

CD 1 Started period.
CD 3 ultrasound/had several premature follies. 1st Menopur Injection and 2x day follicle stimulating pills, also started Metformin
CD 5 2nd Menopur Injection
CD 7 Final Menopur Injection and final day of follicle stimulating pills
CD 11 Ultrasound. 2 mature follicles, one in each ovary at 23mm each. Uterine lining at 10.5 mm thick. Trigger shot 5:30pm! (Novarel 10,000 i.u.)
CD 12 IUI – Hubby’s count was 60 million and motility was good. Later at night around 11pm felt a sharp pinch and cramping on side of right ovary (right side ovulation?) Super bad mood. EWCM in afternoon. Smiley face on OPK!
CD 13 Not as severe pinches and cramping on left side in early morning (left side ovulation?) Counting this as Ovulation Day since pains started last night into this morning. Headache. BD’d late at night with Preseed. EWCM all day
1DPO No more EWCM. Stick CM now
2DPO Ridiculously good mood.
3DPO Grossed out when coworker burped. Super constipated (NEVER happens)
4DPO Gassy, bloated, not AS constipated. Starting feeling stabbing pains and cramping on RIGHT side at night (implantation?)
5DPO Still constipated. Starting feeling stabbing pains and cramping on LEFT side in morning (implantation?) Creamy cm
6DPO Sticky cm, nasal stuffiness, I think I started feeling sensations in my breasts
7DPO Super bad mood again. Watery cm
8DPO BFN FRER
9DPO BFN internet cheapie
10DPO BFN FRER and internet cheapie. Sore nipples late at night, Creamy cm
11DPO BFN internet cheapie. Did not use FRER. Headache. Super emotional. Sore nipples continue
12DPO BFP!! Had BFN in the morning with internet cheapie. Went to work and was meaner than usual. Breasts finally sore too. Tested with FRER after work and faint BFP!!!! Mad because hubby does not think BFP counts if one line is lighter! UGH! Now the question is.... did Both eggs get fertilized?!

Comments

Congratulations! Happy & healthy 9 mos.

Turned out to be a chemical pregnancy.  At 13dpo I tested again and the line was lighter. I was also spotting. At 14dpo, negative test and full blown period. 4 days later, faint positive urine test at doctor's, so they sent me for blood work asap. Blood test was negative. That same day I started a new round of meds. This time, they swapped out Bravelle and I'm now using Gonal F.
