After 4 years, 9 months, 3 weeks and 2 days of ups and downs in regards to PCOS and infertility, I am pleased to announce that I am in fact PREGNANT!
Years of loss, heartache, frustration, pain.... all of that hurt vanished this week.
Some may say it is too early to announce this, but we know for certain in our hearts that God is doing wonderful things. We are blessed beyond measure and could use as many prayers as possible for a successful first tri-mester and successful pregnancy.
So... here's the "Story" ...
Last month we were told to avoid TTC because my thyroid was just ridiculous and my progesterone was low. I think we made love maybe two or three times the entire month (booo!) On the 26th of February, we found out the thyroid was much much better but the progesterone was still low.
My period was due on March 5th but it did not show. We tested and it was a big fat negative.
However, my breasts have been killing me. SO painful! ((not complaining!! :P ))
Thursday morning, at about 3:30am, I woke up and said to my husband, "My boobs hurt, I'm taking another test, come pee with me."
We stumble to the bathroom and I take the test. He looks at it and says, "Oh one line, lets go back to bed." I look over and see TWO lines. I start freaking out and screaming with joy.
We could NOT control our happiness. This is the first time we've discovered pregnancy early, before it was too late.
I called my infertility doctor and went in today for bloodwork.
At 1:30pm he called me personally to congratulate me on our pregnancy.
I needed a "beta" of "6" to be pregnant.
My beta is 515!!!
My progesterone is 10 which is "ok" but we want to be super safe so I'll be doing progesterone supplements for the first tri-mester.
I go back on Tuesday for more bloodwork.
Once my beta is over 2000, I'll have an ultrasound and then be released from infertility care.
Words can't even begin to describe how I'm feeling.
As soon as I got the news, I drove to my husbands work to tell him of our miracle.
I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life.
Of course I'm worrying, it's only natural. But there are so many factors in our favor that we will be okay!!! This is a dream come true. I'm relaxing and taking it easy and doing everything I'm told.
I'm completely blessed and so grateful for this blessing.
God has always been good and I feel he blessed me with infertility because it truly gave me the ability to spread His word to other women having struggles.
I have many "cysters" who are dreaming to be in my shoes right now and I know in time, they will be.
I refuse to believe that this pregnancy will end terribly. I trust in God and His plan. He has been so good to me.
I can't wait to meet this baby. I love them already.
