Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

TTC for 2 years, blocked tube, adhesions, IUI, chronic spotting before period and finally SUCCESS!

Hello :) I have spent literally the last entire year of my life Googling every possible infertility issue and every phantom early pregnancy symptom. It was really consuming my life. I was living in this constant 14 day limbo and month after month getting my hopes up during the two week wait only to be sadly disappointed when my period would come without fail.
About two years ago I started experiencing extreme pelvic pain not related to uterine cramps during my Period. Sometime after sex I would have trouble even standing due to the pain for any length of time lasting up to 3 days after. I am 26 years old, my husband is 36 with an off the charts sperm count and motility. At this point I expressed my concern to my OBGYN during a routine exam. She scheduled me with a RE to do a sonohistogram. He could tell something wasn't normal with at least one of my tubes so I was scheduled to have laproscopic surgery in December 2013. During the surgery, the doctors found tons of heavy abdominal adhesions and that my right tube was proximally blocked (at the uterus). The doctor said we were likely to be pregnant in 6 months with timed intercourse. Well 10 cycles passed and we decided to move forward with IUI. Two weeks later I was devastated with a negative pregnancy test. We really were facing the fact that the doctors wanted to move us to IVF and I really couldn't find much info online about successful IUIs with tubal infertility, even one blocked side and one open side. We decided we would finish our last IUI cycle before IVF and take time to decide if we really wanted to spend the $13000 it would have cost us for what felt like a huge gamble. Well yesterday at 10DPIUI I was not experiencing the usual spotting I have every month like clockwork on 9DPO, I was at work and just felt some heaviness in my breasts and decided to come home and test midday without holding urine for more than and hour... Just for the hell of it I guess. Well you can imagine my complete shock when a light pink second line showed up. I threw up I was so blown away! That was my instant reaction!! I took another test 24hrs later and it was still light, but darker than the day before! I mostly felt compelled to share my story for anyone feeling helpless from long term TTC and dealing with tubal factor infertility. As long as one tube is patent, IUI can work!! I am the living proof of this now. I never thought we would conceive without IVF! Good luck to anyone out there dealing with something similar. I wish you luck and happiness. Thanks for reading my journey :)
