Me 34 hubby 33. 10 DPO BFP First time in my life to try for kids. You can find my prior posts earlier in this thread.
OK, I'm so excited to be posting the "good news"!!! My hubby and I have tried to get prego since February of this year. (I've actually been trying since December wink...wink). Anyway, our first few cycles we a little rough with no luck. I was frustrated that it didn't happen. I was secretly hoping to be one of those ladies that gets pregnant right away. That was not the case for me. In March, I was starting to have some period like pain after my normal monthly cycle. I have a 28-30 day cycle and it usually lasts about 3-5 days. The month of march I was having spotting for an extra 4 days which is very abnormal for me along with shooting pains that would come on for about 3-4 hours at a time. This was very strange. In April the same thing happened and I knew something was wrong. I called my GYNO but could not get an appointment until early mid May. The pain woke me up a few nights in a row, it was a stabbing pain by my ovary. I decided to call my primary care DR. I came to see him a few days later. He tested me for a UTI and said he could send me the next day to a center to get a transvagional ultrasound and he was not able to do much else and recommended for me to try and get my OBGYN appointment bumped up. So 2 days later my husband and I went to the imaging place for the transvagional ultrasound. The technician uses a small wand and takes pictures up there. She was spending a long time on my right side. She told me to hold on and got another woman to take a look at what she was seeing. Unfortunately, they were talking in code and would only tell me it was on the right side. The technician and the DR. told me that they would send the images to my Primary care and he would call to review them with me. I was so scared of what it was, I was searching the internet for what could be wrong? Web MD is NOT your friend!!! lol. 2 days later my Primary care called me and told me I had a Large mass on my right ovary and it was SOLID .!!! Cysts are fluid filled, My heart sank, I was thinking worst case ovarian cancer and best case a demmoriod cyst. At this point I only needed to wait 3 more days till my OBGYN appointment. At my OBGYN my DR. had received the images from my earlier ultrasound she took a look and said the images were not very good and they had a specialist who would take more. I came back the next day and within the first 5 minutes of the transvagional the Dr. said, "oh wow, you have a huge pudunculated tumor " God is in your favor to have found this before you got pregnant because the fibriod would have caused tons of pain and complications". I was so relieved it was just a large fibroid!!! Because it was attached from a stalk to the outside of the uterus it appeared on the ovary during the first ultrasound.....wow! What a relief. I went in for laparoscopic surgery on June 4th. While the surgery was being performed my doctor saw about 10-13 tiny spots of endometrossis on the outside of the uterus and surrounding areas. He lasered off the endo and removed a large CANTELOPE sized fibroid. The fibroid was sitting towards the back of my pelvis pushing on my bladder. I have always peed all the time and I thought I just had a small bladder. After the operation I now pee like a normal person lol.
After recovery and during my follow-up the DR. explained that my case of endometrossis was extremely mild but even very mild endo could be the sole cause of us not conceiving yet. He gave us the green light to try the next month. (typically is the fibroid is inside the uterus or imbedded in the uterine wall the waiting period is longer).
I used pre-seed on cycle day 15 and forgot to use it the other days. I use the CBFM and did not get a peak in July. This month I did get a peak on cycle day 15&16 followed by a high. We BD on cycle day 8,9,10,11,13,14,15,16,17, Yeah pretty much every day. lol
1 -7 DPO nothing out of the ordinary
8 DPO During my combat class I had a moment of metallic taste in my mouth. I felt feverish that night and I had weird tailbone shooting twinges.
9 or 10 DPO My husband ate hard-boiled eggs this morning and the scent was so strong it was a really bad sulfur smell. I eat hard-boiled eggs all the time and never noticed such a strong scent. Been experiencing light cramping all day. I'm so used to the BFN's month after month that is has started to not bother me that much. Went to walgreens and bought a FER a very light line formed in the 3 minute window BFP!!!!. So excited!!!!! Trying to get pregnant it such a difficult and scary process. I have leaned on God for support during my difficult times. I know he has put in my heart to have children for a reason.
