Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
2+ years TTC: BFP 1st cycle after lap
I really want to post this for others that feel like they will NEVER get pregnant. I felt the same way. After over 2 years TTC, unexplained infertility, multiple medicated cycles, and 8 IUIs, I had a consultation for a laparoscopy. I had a large pedunculated fibroid (it was on a stalk outside my uterus) and the surgeon said it wouldn't interfere with conception but could be a real problem if I got pregnant. I scheduled the surgery. Once she was in there the surgeon found scar tissue all over my bowels, bladder and uterus. She removed all of it during the 5 hour surgery. It took me a full week to recover. The first cycle after my lap my husband and I started discussing what we wanted to do about TTC. We were both worn out from the last 2 years. We decided to take a break - meaning no charting or timed intercourse. A couple weeks later my AF date was approaching. I normally have a very short luteal phase - 10 days - so I usually POAS around CD 24 before AF arrives. I thought I saw a faint line. I took another test the next day... it was still there. By the following day the line was unmistakable. I rant out for FRERs, and it was clear as day. I really just stood there in shock. I'm still in shock. The surgeon said that the scar tissue was probably preventing implantation, and it appears that this was the case! I'll be 38 in 2 weeks. Hang in there! I have no pregnancy symptoms yet, other then just being super excited!
