Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 4 months Post Lap

I am now 26 weeks pregnant!!! I was a bit nervous to write my story on here too soon so I waited far past the risk period. I am 31 and DH 32. I got off BC Feb 2014 an it seemed like from that very first cycle I had what I thought was odd pain during ovulation. I didn't even want to have sex being double over in pain at times the first day or two of my period I also experienced pain. By the time September rolled around I had an intuition that something was off. I consulted my OB that October and in the ultrasound they found several small cyst the tech called, "Chocolate Cyst". She said it resembled PCOS. After my blood work came back negative for PCOS I know the possibility was even greater that I had Endometriosis. My mother too had it and had a full hysterectomy at 42. Even though we were very early in trying to convince I opted for the lap. My cousin also had a full hysterectomy at 35 for stage 4. My mothers oldest sister (her mother) also having been diagnosed. I knew my chances we high and I was very concerned what stage I had considering the amount of cyst I had. Nov 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 2. Cyst were drained, tubes were open some scaring and endo was also removed. 4 long months later the one month I wasn't focusing so much on it, we finally had our prayers answered. I realize my journey was not nearly as long as some but I am glad I took action sooner rather than later. Our baby is doing just great. I haven't had any complications thus far. My heart goes out to all of you ladies who are struggling. Please keep faith and follow your intuition. God bless.
