Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives


Well it’s my time to give back to you all who kept my hopes high when times looked rough. My husband is 33 yo I am 29 yo, we have a 5 yo who was conceived naturally without any issues. When he was 2 yo we decided to start trying...nothing happened. From OpKs, clomid, letrozole, IUI unmedicated to medicated IUIs and nothing. Specialist called it unexplained infertility as hubby was good and well me I had issues with ovulation. I had enough follicles but ovaries needed stimulation. Fast forward, I thought I had tried enough and proceeded to IVF. Huge step, huge time of acceptance and huge burden off you back as you feel a step closer to your goal. I prayed to God to lead us in the right path and with the right drs. Now we went through whole IVF process shots/pills/Retrieval etc. We opted for genetic testing just to increase the probability of implantation. Then time of FET. 1dp5dt (Wednesday) no symptoms. Started feeling AF type cramping 5dp5dt-7dp5dt. I also woke up middle of night super hot and uncomfortable. I remember crying on my own and telling myself it don’t work. 8dt5dt cramps subsided. And occurred randomly. I didn’t want to test at home and waited for blood work. Did blood work. Got the call at work. Told them to hold so I could get some privacy (I share my office with 3 people). I’m shaking lock myself in the restroom. Nurse asked me if I’m ready for result. Nerves Werre high. I could feel my heart pounding. I ask her if I could say a prayer first. She says yes. I say my little prayer. And then i heard congratulations you are pregnant. I am in total dsbelief and I start crying. I asked how my progesterone levels were since I’ve had low progesterone issues. She said they looked great. FYI nurse, PA, and office assistant have me on speaker and all tell me you’re going to make us all cry. Theyve been part of my journey and I think they were truly invested in helping my little family grow. I wanted to do something special to surprise hubby. But I couldn’t contain myself and called him immediately. We have decided to wait on telling our 5 yo as we want to tell him a little later. So this is my Story as short as I could make it. Keep your head up high. Believe there is a higher power when all else fails. Allow yourself to cry, pout, be angry, but get right back up and try again. No matter how many negatives you see it all fades away with that one positive. Keep enjoying life. Whatever your circumstances are you will prevail!


Beautiful story, congratulations to you and your family. We have been TTC for 2 years, have done 2 IUIs and a medicated cycle so we are thinking IVF might be the best route. So happy you had success. Have a happy and healthy 9 months <3

Best of luck to you if you do decide to take the IVF route. For us, we thought we had tried enough and I knew in my heart that this was the next step.
