Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP - 2.5 YEARS after vasectomy reversal

I just wanted to share my story as we spent about 18 months trying to conceive after my husbands vasectomy reversal and had eventually given up. I already have one 11 year old and he has an 11 year old and a 12 year old, all from previous relationships. My husband had his vasectomy 8 years before the reversal. We never ended up going for the follow up tests as we lived 2 hours away from the clinic, and just went with the "if it works, it works" theory. Anyway, a year ago, after 18 months of trying, TWW symptom obsessing, months and months of negative tests disappointing us, we decided we were happy with the family we have and that it was unlikely to happen, so we gave up trying. Apparently we were wrong! I can't give day by day symptoms as I wasn't paying attention anymore. I have recently started exercising more and eating healthier so when my period didn't come I figured it was because of that. My boobs were really big and sore up until my AF was due which happens monthly for me, and then the pain went away. My first clue that something was different is when they started hurting again 7 days later, by that time I was a week overdue. I have been feeling really tired the last few days and nauseous this morning. At this point I was suspicious and couldnt stop thinking about it. So today at lunchtime, with my period being nine days late, I decided to go and buy a test so that I could get it off my mind. I got home and did the test, expecting the negative result as usual. I was shocked when the second line appeared within seconds! Safe to say we are super surprised! I definitely thought it was not possible and that the surgery didn't work since it was two and a half years ago! Have done another test which was positive too. Have booked in to see the doctor on Monday. Fingers crossed it sticks and everything goes well.
