Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

IUI #2 at age 36 and endo

I have mild endometriosis diagnosed only recently during the 6 month fertility workup. I had surgery to take out one fallopian tube which was blocked. Surgery was actually a breeze. I wish I hadn't waited 3 months to do it because I listened to others telling me to "let nature do its job". Turns out, docs know what they're doing. We tried for another 5 months before going to IUI. Nothing on the first try. Second IUI I had two mature eggs and my husband provided a really generous number. TWW symptoms were pretty mild and likely started about DPO11 - tingly nipples, "dense" feeling breasts but not exactly sore, I was out of breath walking home from the bus stop or doing yoga, a small wave of nausea in the morning and hip soreness. Not to get disappointed by an earlier negative, I tested on DPO13- BFP (I don't know about the "F", it was more of a faint line still)! I'm a cynical old owl so I didn't get excited yet because I know the trigger shot can last in your body until day 14 resulting in a false positive. Next morning, the line was darker and blood test confirmed positive! DPO14- nauseous all day- not sure if it's from the anticipation for the phone call from the fertility clinic or just the oldest symptom in the book. Here's to all of you super patient TTC'ers. It was a journey of 1.5 years for me and we just had an IVF consultation last week since we were losing hope and everyone around me was getting pregnant. I guess there's a time for everything. What I did differently: lots of things so it's hard to pinpoint what worked- switched to decaf, drank one single beer all month and not even a sip of alcohol otherwise, ate lots of sardines and avocados, acupuncture twice and relaaaaxing - not overbooking, visualizing and generally just not stressing (not easy to do but saying no to invites helps), also stopped working out, not that I did a lot of that before.
