Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

2 years of trying ...

Hi ladies, I remember coming to this board several times per day reading / analyzing / going crazy over not being able to get pregnant. I wanted to say HANG IN THERE ladies....it's not an easy road but it is possible, even when it seems so impossible. My story in the short version: my husband and I started trying in Dec. 2011. We couldn't get pregnant so after a year I went to a fertility specialist who suggested femara for a few months and then wanted to do 3 IUIs and then IVF. We did the Femara thing for a few months and we did one IUI. I just wasn't happy with the doctor we were seeing - looking back on it it was my mommies intuition already kicking in and just knew I should be doing something else. I switched to a different reproductive endocrinologist who, after I suggested it, agreed that a laparoscopy was needed to rule out any structural issues or endometriosis. I didn't have any symptoms of endo but just felt like there had to be something since I'm healthy and going on 2 years of not being able to get pregnant. This doctor did the surgery and the next month - BFP! We are now 37 weeks along. Honestly I have been so scared to come back to this site just because it brings me back to the sad place of crying each month and feeling so down and lonely. But I am the example - IT CAN HAPPEN!!! Just an FYI: the month that we did get our BFP, I bled and spotted just like I was going to start my normal period. I was (again!) bummed and crying, etc... but then the full period never came. I took a test and for the first time ever, it was positive! Keep your head up ladies!!! Know you are not alone in this. I started depression/anxiety medications while TTC because I was so down about it. It's OK if you need help during this hard time! I pray for you ladies all the time and hope your time is very soon! Also, if you aren't comfortable with your doctor, trust that and change doctors- I am the example of this !! MUCH LOVE! xoxo.
