Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Plus size, PCOS, TTC for 2.5 years, BFP!

My husband and I have been trying for 2 years and 8 months. He has really great sperm count and health. I have PCOS, am plus size, and usually only have a few periods a year so we knew TTC would be a struggle when we got married. Last June, one year ago, my super amazing OB put me on Metformin and Clomid. The first cycle was a bust, no ovulation, and it took three months to start my cycle naturally again. So she upped it to 100 mg in Sept/Oct and BFN. So she upped to 150 mg in Oct/Nov and again BFN. Because my cycles are long, between June and Nov I had only taken three rounds of Clomid and I was really bummed. I thought with all of the temping and OPKs and BDing that I had done everything and it just made me sad for it to not work at all. So I took a break. Suprisingly my cycle keep coming normally every 35 days off of Clomid and I kept ovulating so I didn't go back on Clomid right away. Then in March/April I had a 45 day cycle, and I thought to take just a 50 mg cycle of Clomid just to keep everything moving. We weren't really TTC anymore because we already had an appointment scheduled with my Dr to be referred to a specialist and I had really lost hope it wouldn't happen with heavier duty fertility assistance. So mainly I took the Clomid in April just to keep things moving along and keep my cycles regular. I didn't temp or take OPKs in May. I didn't time BDing. I was convinced that it wouldn't happen for us so easily. So it didn't really cross my mind till I started feeling off around CD35. I thought "wait... maybe... no, it couldn't be!" But in a few days, still no AF and still feeling off. So I decided to finally take a test. I took an old internet cheap Wondfo test I had and just about died when that second line came up immediately! I read the package and the test was expired so I took two more tests and both came up positive! I was in shock so I ran to the store and bought a FRER and it too came up positive with a really strong second line! So ecstatic! I had my blood tests, 3500 HCG at 4 weeks, 6 days! I have an ultrasound next week. It's all so hard to believe! I used to live by these PCOS success stories so I wanted to share mine with you. Clomid can work with us PCOSers, but sometimes not on the first try!
