Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 3 years and ovarian tumour

After 3 years of trying and having gone through the tests for IVF we were told we just needed one final repeat check then would have IVF the next month or so. In an internal scan they spotted a mass on my ovary, looked like a cyst, after an MRI and CT scan it was confirmed as a 4.5cm ovarian tumor. To be brief, I had surgery in march 2014 to remove my right ovary and the tumor (confirmed as cancerous but all traces removed in surgery) then we were told we could go straight to IVF, but before we had chance we fell pregnant au naturel in June, just 3 months after surgery, amazing! 19 weeks now and still cant take it in. Here are my symptoms, had more symptoms other months (and im a pro symptom spotting after 3 yrs!) so had no clue. 1dpo onwards - sore side of breasts (normal) 8dpo some mild cramps at night, thought I brought them on by thinking about it 11dpo slight sore throat and slight stuffy nose, felt a bit achy but hard week so didn't think anything of it 12-14dpo v mild cramps, thought AF would come, woke up at 4.30am for no reason 16dpo took 3 tests, all positive, 2-3 wks My advice is DON'T GIVE UP HOPE no matter how tough it gets, a huge sprinkling of baby dust to all xxxxx Also if you have LOTs of spotting starting 8-10 days before ur period get it checked, this was my main symptom of the tumour but I didn't know it till after the surgery.
