Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Pregnant with DH hypospadias and low T
I used to stalk this website daily so thought I would contribute my story. Background- I’m 27 and morbidly obese but otherwise healthy. My husband had been on exogenous testosterone for years before we decided to TTC. He also has mild hyposadias. Three months before we got our bfp, DH was told his sperm count was too low to produce a number on the lab result. The doc put him on three times a week HCG shots and stopped the testosterone. I was temping, tracking mucus, and doing OPTs. We had sex every other day and used instead cups/preseed like clockwork for 8 months to no avail. The month we were successful, I had a very strong OPT (it was the day of solar eclipse, some think it had to do with it) and instead of having him ejaculate inside me, I had him go in a cup then “injected” it with a clean syringe over my cervix. I skipped the Instead cups bc I had just happened to run out but I did stay laying for 15 min after. We couldn’t believe it when we got our very faint positive result only 8 days later! I thought surely it wouldn’t stick being that early of a positive but I’m currently 20 weeks with a healthy baby boy. Stay positive and good luck everyone! If you are dealing with hypospadias, I highly recommend squirting the semen inside you with a sterile syringe to simulate a normal penis.
