BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Still in Shock

I had read stories on this website for almost a year, and told myself if I ever got a BFP I would share. Reading of others successes gave me a lot of hope! After almost a year of not trying/not, not trying I decided to start tracking ovulation. After 3 months we got pregnant, but that ended in a chemical pregnancy. My doctor reassured me that "this happens" and nothing to worry about going forward. After 9 more months of no success, and hours of my own research I was convinced I had endometriosis. My doctor essentially said I was simply just too stressed and needed to "just relax". At this point I decided to start accupuncture and see a fertility specialist ( who also didn't think I had endo). We tried Clomid with IUI with no success, so at this point I really pushed for the laparoscopy to check for endo. After essentially begging, he agreed for the surgery. Well, it turned out I had Stage 2 endometriosis with an endometrioma in my left ovary. It was removed on October 9, and then on November 29, the next month, we got our BFP!! That November, I continued with Clomid and IUI, accupuncture and ate pinneapple the 5 days after IUI. We are now 22 weeks pregnant with a little girl on the way! Moral of the story, always follow your instincts, do your research and never give up hope!
