Trying for #2 and suspected fertily issues. 6 months trying, even longer not trying to prevent. Lots of medical history. We were to try fertility testing/treatments next month. However, decided against it and give all the credit to God. This is going to be long, so feel free to skip to the end to the detailed dpo play by play.
Well, let me give you a little history, because I feel it really adds to the story. First off, we have one son. When I was pregnant with him, I underwent emergency surgery around 14weeks due to a 20cm mass twisting my my ovary and tube around. I had the mass, ovary and tube removed. Our son survived and grew well. The biopsy came back cancerous though. I had one more reoccurrence and that was removed after my emergency csection. Anyway, I should probably have a hysterectomy in five years. Because of this, we didn't want to waste time and stopped preventing a little after my son was born.
Last month, I went for my routine checkup. (I am monitored closely to make sure there's no reoccurrence) we found about five cyst, but nothing tumor looking. On the visit, I mentioned how we were trying but not succeeding. I thought maybe part of my problem was the always positive opks I get. This made my ob kinda worried and he ordered more tests, so we could get started on treatments right away.
Well, a couple weeks later, I had some really stressful stuff come up. I was never overly religious before. I believed, but I wasnt sure how much or what i believed. After my son was born, there's no way I could doubt he wasn't a Gift from God. Yet, even though I had faith, I sometimes lost that faith. Nonetheless, on this stressful occasion, I prayed to The Lord. I prayed for someone who had wronged me, asked to for their heart to be righted, I asked God to give me strength to forgive. During this prayer, I kept feeling God speak to me and tell me "don't do the fertility treatments yet... I have plans for you..." I took it to heart and I didn't go through with it. Now here I am, pregnant that same cycle. Praise The Lord.
During this tww I documented everything, I don't know why... I just did. So here it is dpo by dpo. Sorry for the tmi in advance!!!!
1 dpo: Urine smells weird/strong. In the mood. Acne on forehead (never get) and little bit of backache.
2 dpo: Intense cramps. Diarrhea. Intense bloating. urine still smells. Itchy vagina (getting yeasty beasties??!) acne still. Thighs hurt. Watery cm and cervix still high.
3dpo: Mild cramps. Diarrhea. Still super bloated. Vagina still itchy. Thighs still hurt. Extra snotty (sinuses feel stuffed) Watery cm and ewcm. So bd just in case.
4 dpo: Nausea cramps. Gassy. bloated. vagina hurts like beginning of af. BBs really heavy. More watery/ ewcm. Hot flashes and notice a lot of bo (maybe from sweating so much) Think I'm either getting af early or pg. test and bfn.
5 dpo: Nausea. And a lot of bloat with gass. Achy vagina still and creamy yellow cm (definitely think I'm getting af at this point)
6 dpo: Less bloating. Itchy vag again though. More acne and hot flashes. My nipples itch a tiny bit. I feel a zinging pain around csection and burning sensation down there (haven't felt the skin down there in over a year)
7 dpo: Sore left bb, then right. Feel kinda dizzy/ short of breath. Passes really quickly. Think it's in my head. Left leg numb and then Charlie horse. Heartburn and thirsty. Neg hpt.
8 dpo: Some bloating and nausea. bd and didn't start af (odd for me, usually do, if I am about to start anyway)
9 dpo: Some backache and mild cramps. yellow cm. look for cervix but can't feel it because my vagina walls are super puffy/swollen and tight. Neg hpt
10 dpo: Bad bloatin back. really bad backache. Lots of cm. test with $tree test (not sure if I see anything) stare at it for hours. Think I'm going crazy. Pray to God. Thank him for his many blessing. Tell him to give me guidance and clarity. Go out and get frer. Bfp within seconds, with diluted urine. No doubt about it... And no doubt in my mind what contributed to the bfp.
Thank you, Lord. I do not deserve the many blessings I've been given. However, I do appreciate them so very much. Now I am praying for a sticky bean, if that is his plan for us. If not, I pray for strength to understand. But I know regardless, God has spoken to me and he is good. He has blessed me beyond more than I could imagine.
