Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after HSG test!!!
I have frequented this site for just under a year questioning every symptom that I would get during the two week wait so I wanted to share my story. After about 10 months of trying to conceive my husband and I made an appointment with my doctor. I was proactive and wanted him to get his sperm checked prior to the appointment and everything looked great on his end. We also tried acupuncture for 3 months before we had to stop due to the expense but I loved it and it really helped my stress levels. It was very emotional talking to my doctor wondering why it's taking so long to get pregnant. She was kind and suggested an HSG test to get an idea of what's going on. My test went well, it was quick and felt like bad cramps for a few min. My tubes were clear but my uterus is tilted which the Dr. said won't cause problems concieving. During this past year I also got my thyroid tested and began taking medication, it took a while to get to the right level- so thankful for my natural physician who kept a close eye on it. I am now on a compounding thyroid after the pharmaceutical brands didn't work well for me. So finally we reach a great thyroid level the month prior to the HSG and were hoping for the best with the upcoming cycle. I really didn't think we would get pregnant the same cycle as the HSG because it seem to delay my ovulation until day 21. We had sex 2 days prior to ovulation and went on vacation for 4 days. I was to the point that I just let it go and actually made an appointment with and RE for an IUI and to start clomid. Then, as I approach the day my period should start I had cramping but no period. So I thought the HSG had delayed my period too. On day 16 after ovulation my period still hadn't arrived and my breast were getting sore with lower abdominal cramps. I thought, "well I guess we should test"(even though I didn't think it would be positive) and bought tests from the store and then tested right when my husband and I got home. Two lines showed up right away and I was shocked!! A big BFP on day 16 after ovulation and the same cycle as the HSG test. God is so good!! I pray this will give you hope when you are in a long season of trying to conceive.
