Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP one year after Lap
I've been reading these stories for over a year now since we first started trying. Feb 2014 I found out I was pregnant after our first month of trying. Then at week 6 I started to have pain on my left side. Thank goodness I went to the dr early and was told I had an ectopic pregnancy in my left tube. I didn't even know what that was since I only researched miscarriages. Anyways I had two doses of Methotextrate and although it works for most my numbers were not decreasing so I had to get laperscopic surgery. They ended up removing my left tube and I had to wait 3 full cycles to try again. I started trying again in July and nothing. Finally this last March exactly I year from my surgery I went to the dr for a consult and asked about my options. The first step was to have an HSG to check to see if my right tube was clear. Due to the timing I had to wait for my next period to schedule the test. Well I never got my period! I tested positive with no symptoms at all. I swear I had more symptoms every other month. I called the dr and had two hcg test to confirm it was doubling. Then had an ultrasound at 5 weeks as. 5 days where it showed two sacs in my uterus. I was excited but still nervous because I didn't see a baby yet. Also I have hardly any symptoms so I was convinced It would not happen. Today I went in at 7 weeks and 5 days and I saw one baby and a strong heartbeat!!! The other sac vanished which is apparently normal. I am still being cautiously excited but am finally a little relieved and have hope this one is going to work out. I hope this provides encouragement for someone out there!!
Side notes:I used preseed for the last 3 months but more as a lubricant and did not inject it in. I stopped using ovulation kits because it was stressful. I just took my temp everyday which made me feel like I knew what my body was doing. I clearly knew when I ovulated and when I was going to get my period and was NOT pregnant. I would buy 20 test (ovulation and pregnancy) at a time at the dollar store and keep one first response just in case. The time I finally got pregnant it showed up immediately on the dollar store test and I confirmed with the FR. Don't waste your money!! Just keep praying and be patient. It will happen!!!
