Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

PCOS, Clomid, IUI * no injectables

Quick back story:
I was diagnosed with PCOS at 18. I have always watched my weight, ate healthy and worked out! I am not a tooth pick by any means but 5'6 and 146 lbs. I had my son two years ago, he's a clomid baby and an iui was not needed. After my son I went back to working out, eating healthy and began to ovulate on my own! YAY!

My husband was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma last year and it put a halt on our family planning. After being put on a wait list for the fertility clinic we waited a long 8 months before getting the first appt to come in! (We are unable to conceive on our own due to chemotherapy, we must wait a minimum of 18 months before his little friends are safe) SO he froze some for me before the treatment and here we are... P.S. my husband is now in remission.

Alright, so fast track forward to February, I got AF on Feb 15/17. Clomid was taken day 3-7 during this cycle and I caught the LH surge on March 2nd, went in the next day for IUI March 3rd (CD 18)

This was my first ever IUI!

Symptoms!

Day 0 - right ovary in pain, lower back ache! Day of IUI!
1 dpo - bloated, immediately apparently a side effect of clomid? Ovary pain gone so I assume the egg is out!
2 - 3 dpo - bloated
4 dpo - implantation I believe, two sharp pricks in the uterus a feeling of an egg being burrowed in.
5 dpo - bloating, bouts of nausea, head ache. Seriously gassy, I could clear a room
6 dpo - tested with a dollar store cheapie, why?!? Waaaaay to early totally a BFN no nausea today but a head ache, bloated, gassy.. I could knock someone out.
7 dpo - bloated, gassy, head ache, low back sore, nausea, hungry, tired ,right nipple is sore but I'm chalking it up to me feeling them up looking for soreness haha.
8 - 9 dpo - same as above but breasts are rediculously sore, I said to my husband "I don't even need to test, I'm pregnant"
10 dpo - 6am tested with a FRER and FMU BFP!!!!!!!! Its a squinter but its totally there. No nausea today but I'm still bloated and my boobs are sore sore sore. Tired and hungry!

I also ate a toasted tomato, turkey, lettuce and cheese sandwich every day with a pickle on the side... May or may not be a symptom.

I wanted to post this on here because you can seriously get symptoms early! I had no idea.. I actually brushed a lot of of it off as clomid side effects (although I have taken it before) but the nausea was a give away.

Baby dust to all!!!

Comments

I failed to mention my CM! Mostly because there was none unless I checked myself!

Day 1-2 watery, EWCM

Day 4-6 lotiony CM

Day 6-10 school glue, sticky CM, yellow tinge. 

Okay! Good luck again ladies!

14 dpo - Another BFP with FRER and FMU!!!! Very easy to see, no squinting :)

15 dpo today and still bloated, sore breasts and gassy. All other symptoms have subsided!
