Merry meet everyone, (Sorry if this is in the wrong place)

Here is a little back story of the past 7 years of my troubles conceiving and miscarrying. I first fell pregnant back in September 2009 and had an Ectopic pregnancy and through this also found out I had PCOS and was told by doctors I would have a 50% chance of ever having children. I have never given up hope.

I fell pregnant again April 2010 but lost this one at 7 weeks pregnant, this time I had found out that my testosterone was far too high and my hormones needed to be leveled out for me to be able to carry a child. They also gave me Clomid (which I took once and it didn't agree with me at all.)

I then fell again in July 2010 and had a miscarriage at 10 weeks pregnant, and by this time I was devastated, I had therapy and depression tablets. In 2011 I didn't fall pregnant at all, and in 2012 I had a further 4 miscarriages all at 6-10 weeks. Needless to say I wasn't in the right frame of mind by this point and needed help by many doctors and therapists.
I am still upset by what has happened to us but I am a lot better now for having mental health help.

Christmas 2013 I thought myself and my husband may have actually done it, we were going to have a baby, I didn't know I was pregnant until 9 weeks gone, but when we went to the early scan there was no viable heartbeat.

I haven't been pregnant since that time in Dec 2013, we have been at Plymouth's Ocean Suite Fertility Clinic, and it seemed all that was offered to me was one course of IUI and IVF. I was very shocked at this as most of the women I know that have gone through fertility problems and have PCOS get offered many different tablets like higher Clomid or metformin before this.

I got very frightened and turned down the IVF and went on to Dianette pill, which helped with my weight, my PCOS, my psoriasis (which is all over my face and body) and made me feel a lot better about myself.
It also gave me time to heal which I REALLY needed. I came off the pill to try for a baby in March 2015. And last year I had no pregnancies just weird periods, they ranged to 28-42 days before they arrived.

I had a scan in November 2015 to check my ovaries and it turns out my Left Ovary is riddled with PCOS but my right only has a few cysts on, the nurse said other than that everything was good to go, it just may take me a while to conceive.

Anyway getting to today...
I was due my period 3 days ago, they have been pretty good this year at turning up at 28-32 days, which my doctor was very proud about!
I never did get my period but I did get brown and pink spotting and this is still happening today at day 6, but the spotting is so small that I knew something was different, so I went out and bought tests today.

So I tested and... I think I am pregnant???
I did two CB's and one FRER which came up with a faint line on all three, but the Clearblue Digital came up "NOT PREGNANT"

Can I have opinions please ladies, and I am so sorry for the long post, but I am one to get myself out there lol!!

Thank you all in advance <3

Faint, but there!

Congratulations! :D flowers

Pregnancy tests are not quantitative, so 'faint' or 'not faint' does not even come in to it grin - congratulations and good luck! thanks

What an emotionally draining and painful journey you have been on.

But for today's news.... CONGRATS!!! I would say they are positive and not faint in my opinion.

So wonderful!

Thank you all so much. I am so happy, but nervous!
I am going to sit down all weekend now and watch Netflix and get an appointment with my doctor next week xxx
