I want to first start out by saying that God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!
I've been stalking this website for years now, praying for the chance to be able to post my own story. Finally I can! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years. I'm currently 31 and he's 30. We went to a major fertility clinic to get some answers. Was told that I had slight hypothyroidism and was subscribed synthroid. After three failed IUI's, clomid, and every herbal remedy out there we were tired, broke and frustrated. I finally found a small practice where I would be only dealing with one doctor who promised to find the cause and help us. He diagnosed us with unexplained infertility. He said we can either continue to try or to do IVF. We chose IVF. IVF is a long arduous and expensive process but it is well worth it.
3/20 - Egg retrieval. 13 eggs were retrieved. PAIN!
3/21 - They called to say that 9 fertilized successfully.
3/22 - The eggs continued to thrive and they want me to do a 5 day transfer. Tender BBS due to the progesterone shots.
3/25 - Two healthy fertilized eggs were transferred into me. I was on bed rest immediately after. Tender BBS. Frequent urination, wake up at least twice a night to use the bathroom.
3/26 - Bed rest... slight sensation every so often that felt like it was in my urethra. I was afraid it was a UTI. Stomach began to bloat. Frequent urination
3/27 - Heaviness in abdomen but I attributed it to the retrieval that I was still healing from. Still had the strange feeling in my urethra. My stomach bloated so large that even my husband noticed and asked me if that was normal since I normally have a semi flat stomach and now I looked two months pregnant. yellow CM
3/28 - Pain in uterus when I laughed or sneezed. Tender bbs. Bloating. Very hungry. Woke up in the middle of the night and it took a while to fall asleep. Very Tired, Runny nose, yellow CM. slight cramps after I urinate
3/29 - Swollen ovary on right side. Tender BBS. Hurts to laugh or sneeze. I just knew I was pregnant.Bloating, Very hungry and Tired. Continue to wake up at night.Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
3/30 - Took a 2 1/2 hour car ride and couldn't stay awake even though I had a full night's rest. I also was very uncomfortable the entire car right. I felt a little crampy and my ovaries were sore. Bloating. Swollen ovary. Very hungry. Continue to wake up at night. Tired. Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
3/31 - Easter Sunday...woke up at 5 am with a splitting headache that lasted all day. Tired; heaviness in abdomen. Still extremely bloated. Slight cramps but not like AF was coming. Bloating. Swollen ovary. Very hungry. Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
4/1 - Slight cramps. Bloating. Sore BBS. Frequent urination. Swollen ovary. Very hungry. Tired; yet still waking up in the middle of the night. Thirsty, Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
4/2 - Went to doctor just to have my hormone levels tested. On my way to the doctor I began to have AF like cramps and began to worry that it felt too much like AF to be pregnant. Was told it 's probably too early to test for pregnancy. Got a call in the afternoon from the doctor telling me to stop my estrogen pills, continue with my progesterone shots and that my levels were high enough to confirm that I am PREGNANT!!! I was completely shocked since I was told it was too early to test. Went home and tested on the spare tests I had and both came up positive!!! My husband and I were so excited!!! It's surreal!!!
Cramps. Swollen ovary. Frequent urination. Sore BBS.Very hungry. Waking up at night. Thirsty, Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
4/3 - VERY VERY bloated. Tired; Slight Cramps on and off. Swollen ovary. Frequent urination. Sore BBS.Very hungry. Waking up at night. Thirsty, Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate
4/4 - Not as bloated as yesterday but it's still there. Crampier than before. Sore bbs. Tired. Still on a high from my good news. Runny nose, yellow CM, cramps after I urinate.
I never got implantation bleeding, never got that sharp pain. Never got strong AF cramps. There was honestly no real sign that I was pregnant. I had more false pregnancy symptoms in the previous months of trying than I did this time which maybe was a sign.
I'm still in the very, very early stages of this and still holding my breath. But I know that God has not brought me this far to leave me. For all of you reading this and wondering when will it be your time... I've been there too, cried, yelled, been depressed when everyone around me got pregnant so easily. When our family members kept asking. I've been to hell and back with this. All I can say is that God's timing is perfect even when it doesn't seem like it. God bless you all and good luck!!!
