I have been using this site for the last 4 months and I credit you ladies for my continued faith in my body and my sanity!!!
I have PCOS, Endometriosis and Diabetes. The PCOS was diagnosed 8 years ago. I never had cycles so I never knew I had endo until we started TTC my DS nearly two years ago. I had a lap and dye, my ovaries drilled, my womb checked for polyps and after they discovered the endo I also had diathermy all in April 2011. We concieved my DS 3 weeks post op and he was born in February 2012.
I knew from the surgeons that I couldn't leave any subsequent babies too long as I would just fill up with cysts and endo deposits while we waited. We originally said we would wait till Christmas to start TTC #2 but my periods returned in August and I got the fear about missing what may be my only chance. So we threw caution the the wind and DH was delighted. Anyway, I used CBFM and got peaks for the last 3 cycles, I check my CM and CP and got still got BFNs. It was heartbreaking to begin with but I fell easily into the 'every peroid is a new chance to get pregnant'.
This cycle went as follows -
Cd18 Peak on CBFM,
CD19 Peak again, we BD every other day before peak and then every day during high fertility.
1dpo felt a twinge that woke me up in the early hours of the morning. I'm assuming this was me actually ovulating.
2dpo - 6dpo hardly any symptoms
7dpo - 10dpo not much, a couple of twinges, general feelings of anger towards people, fatigue, very dry mouth and very thirsty but no sore boobs! Boobs didn't start tingling till 12dpo. With my DS I was exhausted and asleep whenever I could be but not this time.
9dpo bfn very uspet, had a few too many and sobbed for most of the evening (my poor DH). Woke up with my DS at 7am with a headache. Self induced misery so no sympathy for me.
DH banned me from testing till 14dpo but I took a sneaky ic and got a very feint double line.
12dpo ic and CBD and both positive.
Very excited, I will be due the end of July 2014. Good luck ladies, keep heart.
