Our Sticky Bean after a year of TTC

Postby CyndiLooWhoo » Sat Sep 15, 2012 1:58 pm

I wanted to share our story to give hope to women who have been trying forever. Please hang in there. It will happen.

We tried for 6 months and couldn't get pregnant so I sought the help of a fertility specialist who ran all the tests and diagnosed me with unexplained infertility. We tried a disasterous round of Clomid that gave me OHSS, Then we tried two rounds of IUI with gonal-F and a trigger shot. I had a chemical with the first one and the second didn't take.

I was at my wits end and getting ready to start an IVF cycle, but DH and I decided to take a break from treatments for a couple of months first. The next month, I became spontaneously pregnant but lost the pregnancy at 4 weeks 2 days. I didn't think that I could handle any more disappointment but we weren't ready to stop trying. Sure enough, two weeks later, I caught an egg and this time it was going to stick.

I started to suspect that I was preggers around 5 dpo because I started having incredibly vivid dreams. This is a big pregnancy symptom for me. Then, at 6 dpo I had a small bit of red spotting and a big temp drop at 7 dpo. 8 dpo my temp went back up high. I knew that I had implantation, I just didn't know if it would stick.

At 10 dpo, I POAS and got a BFN but I wasn't very upset. I somehow knew that the next day I would get a different result. And I did :) I got a faint BFP on an FRER and a faint BFP on a CBE and I scheduled a beta for the next days. On 12dpo I had a beta of 74 and then on 14 dpo I had a beta of 848 :)

I was checking the TP for weeks, so afraid that I would lose the pregnancy, but here I am at 10 weeks and I feel comfortable enough to share my story with you ladies. Several u/s has confirmed a healthy little person inside and we're due in April :)

I was a sad, sad girl for the year that I was TTC. And the early losses were beyond sad. The fertility treatments were brutal. But it all ebbed away after I got pregnant this time. I feel elated, even through the gripping nausea, constipation and headaches. I deserve this little baby and I know that you all deserve to get pregnant, too, and will :)
