Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After 6 Months with Endometriosis and Possible Blocked Tube
I am still in shock and I really can't believe that I'm pregnant! I am 35, my husband is 32 and we've officially been trying since January 2012. We've been married since September 2011 and I went off the pill in November 2011 after being on it continuously for 2.5 years. Several years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis and was recently told that I might have a hydrosalpinx (a blocked tube) on my left side. So I was anticipating a very long wait to get pregnant. In fact I was convinced that it wouldn't happen this month at all which is why I scheduled a follow up with my gynecologist so that I could finally schedule key hole surgery to remove any endometriosis and to confirm the blocked tube. Ironically when my husband and I went in for the appointment, I was already pregnant (but I didn't know it!)
Conception happened while we were away on holiday for a friends wedding. It was at a time when I was convinced it wasn't going to happen and when I was very drunk! Go figure!
Here is how my two week wait went:
CD 10: watery CM - I got very irritated when we were getting ready for our friends wedding and subsequently broke into tears many times during the day/evening; DH joked that I was pregnant; we both drank heavily at the reception
CD11: watery CM - we made love very early that morning (around 3am) after returning from the wedding - it was a quickie and we were still tipsy :)
CD 12/OD: creamy CM - nothing out of the ordinary
1 DPO - nothing out of the ordinary
2 DPO - nothing out of the ordinary
3 DPO - mild cramps
4 DPO - tender breasts and dizziness
5 DPO - mild cramps and tender breasts
6 DPO - mild cramps and tender breasts
7 DPO - mild cramps and headache
8 DPO - strong cramps and headache
9 DPO - strong cramps, dizziness and headache; took hpt and it was negative (convinced AF is coming)
10 DPO - strong cramps, tender breasts and dizziness
11 DPO - strong cramps, dizziness, gassy, skin breakout and vivid nightmares
12 DPO - mild cramps, tender breasts, backache, dizziness, extremely emotional and vivid nightmares; took hpt and it was negative (now definitely sure it hasn't happened this month)
13 DPO - mild cramps, tender breasts, backache, bloated, and hot flashes
14 DPO - strong cramps, tender breasts, backache, dizziness, gassy and nausea
15 DPO - BFP in the morning before work!!!
I am so happy and I still can't believe it! It may sound silly but I think it's true what they say: it happens when you least expect it!
In past cycles, we used Pre~Seed and I would often hold my legs up over my head to make sure it happened. This time around I was relaxed and right after we made love, I fell asleep. I didn't get up at any point so this could be another reason why it happened. I do think tracking my temps on fertilityfriend.com helped a lot because after going off the pill, my period was so sporadic, it really helped to know when I was ovulating.
I hope it's a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby! And I wish you all the
very best of luck on your TTC journey too!
