I'm so happy to have finally gotten a bfp after 1.5 years of trying. While my husband was deployed I went to see my doctor to get a referral to an RE. Soon afterwards I saw my RE, who was so kind and caring to check me for any fertility issues while my husband was deployed. On September 2012 I went and saw him for first consult and he did an ultrasound of my ovaries, and told me everything appeared normal. Next, I was scheduled for an hsg in October 2012. My hsg was a total success, very quick and minimal discomfort. My results came back that everything was normal and there were no blockages. Got my progesterone tested on November 2nd and received results that I had not ovulated that cycle. I got my period 11/16/12. Once my husband got back from his deployment we made an appointment with RE on 11/20/12. We were unable to get semen analysis authorized by insurance, so we had to wait until it got approved. I got another ultrasound which showed good amount of follicles. RE told me I may have ovulated later or just not ovulated that cycle. RE prescribed me Clomid, and told me he knew couples that had achieved getting pregnant on first round. He prescribed 50mg, but told me just to cut the pill in half because I was too small. So I took 25mg of clomid CD 5-9. Which was perfect timing, as i was able to start clomid that same day CD 5 of my period! RE also told me to start using OPK starting cd 10, so I would not miss LH surge. Each day I took opk and did not see a smiley face, I lost a little bit of hope. However, up until my positive lh surge, I did have symptoms like I was about to get my period. I had cramping and body aches. On CD 16, December 1, 2012, I got a smiley face on my OPK! That month we had been having sex almost every other day. So on the morning of Dec 1, 2012, we had had sex, and then after positive opk we had sex again. Afterwards my husband pulled me and my legs up to get as much of semen inside. I'm pretty sure I ovulated between 12/2/12 and 12/3/12. On 12/2/12 I had light pink spotting when I wiped, and I read somewhere that was a sign a follicle had burst indicating ovulation. So about 5dpo 12/6/12, I started getting cramps and body aches, all the way until 14dpo. On 14dpo (12/15/12) I had a vivid dream that I took two pregnancy tests and they came up positive. In my dream I was looking for my husband to tell him the news but I couldn't find him lol. During the two week wait I prayed a lot to God to bless me with a miracle, and I tried to remain optimistic. I felt like my period was coming any minute. I did not have pregnancy tests either to check, and I think that helped me not to test sooner. On 13dpo (12/14/12) I used an digital opk to test for pregnancy. The opk was negative. 12/16/12 I was supposed to get my period, np but missed it. On 12/17/12 my husband got his semen analysis results that his morphology and sperm count were low, and we were so sad! We thought having a baby was out of our hands, and he was getting referred to a urologist. On 12/17/12 I took another opk and had a positive smiley face! I thought maybe I had not ovulated and my body was trying to ovulate again. My husband bought me a pregnancy test, but didn't want to test while he wasn't home, as I was scared for another disappointment. On 12/18/12 at 630 am as soon as my husband left for work, I took the digital pregnancy test, and in less than two mins the word pregnant came up!!! I was so shocked, I took another test and pregnant came up again! I tried calling my husband but he didn't pick up as he was driving to work. I couldn't believe it I was crying and happy and couldn't believe it had happened just like my dream! Soon my husband called me and I told him the awesome news!!!! I'm waiting for my first ultrasound on 1/24/13, and I'm so excited! Miracles do happen and we were able to get pregnant with sperm count and morphology issues. Have faith and I'm a believe that miracles do happen!
