I thought I should share my story. I’ve been TTC for years! Cycles and cycles of negative pregnancy tests, broken hearts and many many tears! After years of trying, 2 Reproductive Endocrinologists, a laparoscopic surgery, many failed IUIs and 1 IVF cycle…..I can finally say that I’m pregnant!
Also for those of you that are dealing with blocked tubes, uterine septum, ovarian cysts and/or endometriosis…rest assured that it can happen for you!!! I had surgery in November 2011 to remove endo, drain ovarian cysts, unsuccessfully tried to unblock my left tube and repaired my uterine septum.
Let me just say that I was certain that I was not pregnant this cycle! I even posted an obnoxious post on Facebook saying how life isn’t fair. Well I was wrong! I just tested too early. I could have saved myself the agony of thinking that I wasn’t pregnant if I had just waited 2 more days!!!
So for those of you out there going through fertility treatments know that it can happen! Don’t give up hope!
Here are my symptoms (I’m taking Estrogen 2 tbs daily and 3 Progesterone suppositories daily)
1dpt- sharp stabbing pain in my uterus
2dpt-5dpt- ovaries very full and sore, sore bbs and nipples, light cramping
6dpt- ears clogged but no other cold/flu symptoms, bbs no longer sore, finally able to get in and out of the car like a normal person and not like a 90 year old woman, short sharp pains in my bladder/urethra
7dpt- ears still clogged, strong urge for chocolate and carbs, had a vivid pregnancy dream night before, short sharp pains in my bladder/urethra
8dpt- ears unclog, stronger AF like cramps, nipples are sore again, lower back pain
9dpt- slight positive Hpt (guessing it’s the trigger still in my system), feeling emotional
10dpt- completely negative Hpt, very emotional, irritable, sobbing, strong AF like cramps and brown spotting, convinced that I’m not PG, feeling hopeless
11dpt- emotional, cramping, no more spotting, convinced that I’m not PG, feeling depressed
12dpt- positive HpT, bright red spotting, feeling very munchy, craving for carbs, very thirsty, tired
13dpt- 4 positive HpT tests, brown spotting, strong uterine cramping, bbs are starting to feel tender on the sides, bbs feel more full, uterus feels like its stretching/contracting
Good luck to all!
