Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Pregnant Miracle after 6 years of ttc w/ Stage 4 Endo & on Lupron
So here's my story. After 6 years of trying to conceive it finally happened. At first I thought I would
conceive naturally after all I got pregnant 3 times before w/ no Problem. Well 6 years ago after my
ectopic I tried with no results.
I knew there was a Problem!! So finally last year after having severe pain on my right side I went to
the Dr. My Dr discovered that I had a 3cm cyst on my ovary that needed immediate attention. Well
we set up the date & time for the surgery which was sometime in October 2011. After surgery my
Dr said she saw that I had an endometrioma cyst as well as stage 4 endo. She said it was so severe
it covered my bowel & that they were able to clean some of it out. But I would need to see a
specialist to clear it all.
She also said that she had to remove my right tube because the endo had chewed it up like dog
meat. She told me my only two options at that point if I ever wanted 2 get pregnant would be to
take Lupron or more than likely do ivf. I was devastated! Well I opted out of both options & instead
prayed. Well what do you know, the pain returned in December 2011. Once again the Dr told me I
should think about Lupron. So I did my research a little more & discussed it with the family. We
finally agreed this could be my only chance of getting some relief for awhile.
In January 2012 I got my first injection of Lupron & the 2nd day I was in the hospital for chest pain.
Big mistake I thought why did I talk myself into this injection. Well after that episode I experienced
the hot flashes only & no more pain or periods!!! So my body responded to the drug fast I thought.
So the hubby & I definitely enjoyed this if you get my drift:)
Anyway we decided that after my last dose which would have been in June 2012 that we would ttc.
But after reading that it takes a lot of women 6 months to get their cycles I got discouraged &
wanted to give up on ever having another baby. But once again I handed over to God. So the end of
February 2012 I was scheduled for my 2nd injection but decided to skip it until I came back from
Vegas b/c I didn't want to be sick on my trip. When I returned I set up my appt for the next injection.
But my Dr was So concerned that I missed my dose in February that she wouldn't give the 2nd dose
til after I took a pregnancy test. I was like, I'm not Pregnant. I haven't gotten Pregnant in 6years
plus I haven't had a cycle since my first injection. So I get to the drs office on March 20 2012
prepared to get my injection. Still w/o taking a pregnancy test. Then something (God) tells me just
have the nurse take one for the heck of it. I know Its gonna be negative, Its always negative!!!!
Lo & behold!! The Dr comes in with the test & there's 2 lines!!! Omg !!Omg !!Omg!! I cannot believe
it. Is she sure that's my test? I think you picked up someone else's by mistake!! The Dr says no
injection for you, your pregnant! I almost fainted on the table. So she did blood work to confirm &
true enough the blood test showed that i was about 3-4weeks along. I couldn't contain myself
and immediately called the hubby to tell him the great news. I don't know how it happened But I
do know it's a miracle. The woman with one tube, stage 4 endo, ovarian cysts, no period & on
Lupron!! God is real :) And if he can do it for me I no he can do it for anyone.
This is truly a blessing & I thank him every day for it!!
