Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 13 LONG YEARS & PCOS and RA

Well, to say that God has a sense of humor doesn't quite explain it. My husband and I TTC for 10 long years. We gave up, we adopted and then we became foster parents and adopted again. We were done. We got old. Life was good. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 32. I am not overweight and do not have the normal symptoms of it. I have a period regularly but I stopped tracking ovulation a long time ago. I was also diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 25 but have been in remission for the past 5 years or so. Like I said, we weren't trying. I just turned 36 for crying out loud!! And then, it happened. I missed my period. I then started to have mild cramping that would come and go. Then, I started crying at stupid stuff. And then, I forgot the code to get into my kid's daycare and I locked myself out of my own office. But nothing made me think for sure I was pregnant. But after being two weeks late, I decided I would rather have peace of mind than not know so I bought a stick. Those sticks were a hard part of my past and something that I didn't want to look at and at the most, surely didn't want to pee on ever again. But in my head, I was eliminating the possibility of pregnancy to figure out what the REAL problem was. And then came the PREGNANT sign. Within 2 long minutes, there it was. Something I waited for for 13 YEARS! God sure is funny but He never fails to have HIS perfect timing. So here I am, 6 weeks along. Pray for a sticky bean. I realize my chances of a miscarriage are high but I have an indescribable peace. But I waited so long to post here and I finally get to say, for those of you waiting and wishing, keep trying. Don't give up. Have sex in the morning b/c that's about all I can remember that we did differently. And I will be praying for you ladies out there in the dreaded 2 week wait. Love to everyone!
