Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP w/ elevated FSH after almost 2 years of trying
I promised myself that I'd post my BFP story on here to give others hope that it can happen! My husband and I tried for a year to get pregnant with no luck (I'm 36, hubby 39) , so we both had fertility testing (he was fine) and I found out the my FSH level was elevated (ranged from 10-14) and my Amh level was super high (12), which would indicate possible pcos although I was never diagnosed with it. The obgyn said I needed to see a fertility dr to try to get pregnant. I was devastated and we decided for the second year we were just going to enjoy life, travel and then at the end of the second year we'd start fertility treatments. We prayed a lot for a miracle and after 22 months of "not preventing" I started feeling really tired (falling asleep at 7pm every night) , craving specific foods (cereal, salad, baked potatoes), boobs were really swollen, and nothing really tasted good. I was starting to think I had cancer or that something was really wrong with me. It didn't even cross my mind that I could be pregnant especially since my cycles were all out of whack (the last one before my BFP was 52 days!) a friend finally convinced me to take a pregnancy test and I'm sitting here now next to my beautiful 2 week old baby girl to let everyone know that prayers are heard and miracles do happen!! Also, when we "conceived" hubby was off work for a few days between Christmas & New Years and we were both relaxed and not stressed.
