Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
First BFP after 3 years. Endo, LPD, weak ov, hostile fluid, low progesterone, laparoscopy (laser).
I really cannot believe I am here to share this story. I have been reading these stories for 3 years and never ever ever thought I would get pregnant, I truly believed that and it had taken an emotional toll on me. The only reason I am writing this now is to lend some hope to you ladies out there, because I know how much others stories would help me when I was in my darkest moments.
Saw 3 different fertility specialists over 3 years, Used multiple OPKs, IUIs, HSG, sonohysterogram, laparoscopy to remove stage 2 endo, hysterscopy to remove polyps, clomid, letrazole, bloodtests, ultrasounds, progesterone, trigger shots, etc, and every home remedy (pineapple core, preseed, mucinex, guafenin, legs in air, etc.). My lap was Dec 26 2013, I had it done due to SEVERE debilitating period cramps and infertility. It did not help whatsoever for my pain nor my fertility, so the last few months I have been researching the leading endo excision specialist in the world in California who changes women's lives apparently. Also been setting little money aside each week for IVF, but at the rate I was going, would take 30 years to have enough money.
Anyway, for some reason, as of the last 3-4 months, I just finally became burned out and tired, mentally exhausted. Got rid of all OPKs, medicines, everything. Only marked when my period would start so that I had an idea when to expect it and I could plan around the pain that would come. Was so consumed with buying a house that I just completely put TTC out of my mind, which I never thought I could do, but in a way, I "let go" for the time being. Didnt even have much sex at all, just wasnt in the mood.
I just found out 2 days ago that I am expecting. Got my first ever positive pregnancy test in 3 years of trying. Only reason I tested was because I noticed my period was 4-5 days late, which is weird for me. It was a very strong positive and my betas are very good. Of course, I am TERRIFIED of miscarriage or something else going wrong, but more than anything I am truly SHOCKED that it finally happened when I was trying the least. I used to HATE when I would read those stories of relaxing and letting go to make it happen, but I am living proof, or else its just one hell of a coincidence. This should not be possible, all 3 docs told me I had less than 1% chance of conceiving. Anyway, DONT EVER LET GO OF HOPE. I let the anxiety and depression of infertility destroy my social life and some friendships. Hang in there please and good luck!!!!!! <3
