Ok I just want to know if others have had this happen ? Feel like one of the many stories that iv bern told to make me feel better that dobt work. I am a bit confused worried and most of all excited but trying not to be as still early days. any advice or similar experiences please do say I feel a bit lost to be honest.
My story il try to be as quick as possible.
Sept 2009 I missed my period at day 60 and several tests (all negative) I went to the Dr she told me the chances are I had a early miscarriage.
After a month of realisation and tears we desided to TTC.
In June 2010 I was rushed to hospital to have a large cyst removed from my right overy. My drs then got us fast tracked on to the fertility clinic.
After talking to them about September 09 they said the cyst could have made me miss my period and chances are as I had no bleed no positive and no pain I had not miscarried.
my other half was tested and told his sperm were fine so we tried several clomfine cycals resulting in my right overy doing nothing. in July 2011 I had a laparoscopy. This lead to being told my tubes Were both blocked by endometriosis and it was everywere else as well. I had only just turned 22 and needed IVF I could not have funding untill I was 23 a whole year away.
In September I developed a pain that was so bad I lost my job and my social life this was the endometriosis. I was given tablets that made me so sick and didn't work. In Feb I came off and spoke to a new dr who offered me a injection that would do a similar thing to the tablets but he also didn't recommend it due to the reaction to the tablets and this would be more intense and last 3 months. My other options were get pregnant or live with it id lasted the last 7 months why not more so with doing pretty much nothing and taking morphine I could cope.
Aug 2012 finaly went back for IVF was 233lbs and 5'10" had to get my bmi below 30 so back again in Dec id got down to 198lbs and bmi of 27 this was really hard as I couldn't exercise due to pain.
So my husband had his tests redone and they came back at 0% were the right shape. I said " I thoght he was fine" turns out his % in the first test was only 8% but they thought that would be fine. A 3rd test showed 0% again so icsi ivf was the only way to go we were told on 14/02/13 that we had no chance of conciving naturally either of us. Weirdly this made me feel better. It wasn't my fault any more we were both as broken as each other. So I had day one on my period on 15/02/13 this was a forced period with norathistarone. Due to being late and having a negative test. On mach 15th we were meant to start cycle to start injections for ivf. I did a test it was negative. Had to wait a week before doing another test to take norathistarone again. I think that day will stat with me for ever. On the 22/03/13 I got up did my test it was faintly positive id never had anything like it before so did another one different make. Again faint line by this point I had freeked out I had lost control id known what was happening this faint line had thrown me out compleatly. Went to the drs she couldn't get blood after 4 attempts she did another urine test and again it was faint but there. She sent me away and I had to do another test Mon. I did 9 tests between the Fri and Tues when I got the results from the drs that it was positive. After talking to several departments I got a scan yesterday and it looks like im 5-6 weeks not the 7 calculated. Sorry so long winded

Congrats - woooo you're having a baby!!! I can't relate to your story but think it's wonderful nonethless. A pregnancy against the odds is nothing short of a miracle!

It's an amazing feeling to know you have a life growing inside you but just to warn you don't let the woes of the frst trimester set you back - all part and parcel of pregnancy. Enjoy the next 34 weeks and a lifetime of joy thereafter. x

Congratulations, I've got endo quite bad and we never thought it was going to happen for us either so I can completely understand how you're feeling. You must be so happy!! Try not worry too much and just take everything one step at a time. You have a little miracle growing in your belly!! x

That's wonderful! Congratulations flowers

Wow congratulations! That's amazing news! I have no personal experience of infertility but have heard from many others who had been struggling to conceive until it got to the point they gave up the stress of TTC resigning themselves they'd be childless.
As soon as they stopped actively trying an came to terms with being childless they conceived unexpectedly naturally.

Congratulations.
The great thing to remember is( although you will fret and worry) that your pregnancy is from a spontaneous conception.
This means you are already more likely to have a good outcome.Unlike if you had needed assisted conception which puts you in the 'high risk' category.(smile)

Congratulations, no personal experience, but we do have 2 lots of friends this has happened too quite recently - both now have healthy DCs -

one was a cancer survivor & at 45 had given up on the idea if DCs a long while back & was shocked to find she was pregnant when she was sure it was too late smile - the other paid for 4 rounds of failed IVF as they both had fertility problems, though they did also have younger DCs, they gave up, mourned, & then fell pregnant naturally smile

So yes it happens to others too - good luck
