Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

2 month post laparoscopy

I have struggled with endometriosis for 2 years since I found out I had it via laparoscopy.. About 3 months after I was married (with lots of negative pregnancy tests) I had a cyst of my ovary that was growing very quickly and I had a laparoscopy to remove it and all of the endo that had grown back. The endo wasn't too bad but I was down to one working fallopean tube and the ovary needed to get me pregnant was stuck to the side of my a abdominal wall. Basically, it was a blessing disguise I had the surgery and would have had a really hard time getting pregnant without it.

About a month after the surgery, we had sex once at the end end of my fertile days. I was still recovering from pain after the surgery and convinced myself I was pregnant, I had every symptom imaginable. I spent hours on websites like these, taking tests daily and counting down the minutes.

When I got my period, I was so upset and had a come to Jesus moment. Not only have I gone mad, my body is unhealthy and very confused with the endo and the surgery. I need to get healthy so my body can carry a baby.

I started reading books about endo diet and fertility. I started to take a ton of vitamins daily like probiotic, magnesium, evening primrose, fruit and veggie supplements, Endovan, chinese herbs from acupuncture, etc. I cut out red meat, dairy, sugar, WHEAT, and junk food from my diet. I was done obsessing and wanting to solely focus on my health.

This month, my husband (who owns his own company) had an employee who quit and needed me to help until he hired someone new. It happened with perfect timing for me because I was just starting to feel normal from my new healthy focus and was no longer in pain from the surgery. I worked 11 hours a day at my job and helped my husbands in the evening and on weekends. I had no time to obsess over blogs and to self diagnose any little symptom that came up. And I didn't need to, I felt great.

We had sex twice in my fertile period, at the very beginning and the very end. Since I only have one tube, I can't get pregnant every month anyways. I had little symptoms when finally I decided to take a test after I was 3 days late and sure enough, a solid BFP on 4 different tests

Symptoms:
Heartburn right when I missed my period. It felt different then the normal heartburn I usually get
I gained a few pounds and was very confused bc I was eating so healthy
I felt amazing, no endo pain. I felt like a normal person

Takeaways:
I was pregnant 2 months after my laparoscopy. My first one 2 years ago almost killed me. I had internal bleeding and was in the hospital for a week. I kept faith, stayed with my Christian Dr., and had a second surgery when I really needed it. Laparoscopies are great if you are ready to get preg right after

Have you ever heard the saying, it will happen when you stop trying?? This is so true. Don't obsess over blogs and website like this. don't take tests early. Take care of yourself and your marriage and have sex on the fertile days. Keep in constant communication with God and ask for direction.

Endometriosis needs the right diet. Your doctor is probably not going to tell you this. It's so important.

Don't obsess over symptoms. I really didn't have any and didn't think I was pregnant.

Good luck and baby dust to all!

Just had myomectomy last month and your post gave me hope...thanx for sharing

Really, a Christian doctor! Was there a problem with doctors from other faith? Hope you feel great about putting other religions down with that statements guessing your doctor was white also. Idiot!

Ria you are an idiot - go and vent elsewhere

Hi there, congrats! Your story gave me hope. I've been TTC for 2 years, with 2 failed FET transfers. Doc believes it's because I have endo. I was wondering, did you keep taking Endovan throughout your cycle or did you stop just before ovulation? Reading up on their website and they said women TTC stop before their ovulation. Thanks and all the best with your pregnancy

I'm so happy for you! This is encouraging to hear! May I ask what vitamins and the dosage you took to help conceive and help with endo? I'm do curious to know! I already take magnesium and vitex.
