About Me / My Trying to Conceive StoryWhen I was 19, I got pregnant with my daughter. The pregnancy was a breeze, no complications. Although when I was induced on February 10, 2009, my daughter was in distress, first the oxygen dropped low, then her heart rate dropped to only 50 bpm in utero!! The OB/GYN(male drs, bleh) decided it was time for a Cesarian Section. So, at 7:33 that evening my 6 lb. 6 oz. 18.5 in. little lady was here! Then OB/GYN was sure that she'd have some degree of mental problem because of the lack of oxygen and the heart rate drop. She's actually ahead in most development. The only things were that she didn't cut teeth until she was 11 months old, and currently is being stubborn with potty training, she tells you when she feels like telling you. She's 3 now!
I wound up leaving her biological father in May 2010, because of the emotional abuse to both my daughter and myself, not to mention the physical abuse I suffered.
I started talking to my current love in June 2010. We started dating in July 2010 and have been inseparable since! He was told that because he had to have two hernia repairs (one on each side of his groin) that he'd probably NEVER be able to have children. Well, the female he was with prior to me, had conceived TWINS, and she forced herself to abort/miscarry. She pretty much over dosed the caffeine, and wound up losing both, but of course I haven't talked to her, but I know he said BOTH of them were drinking Mt. Dew & taking caffeine pills when he drove them to Florida, which was 14 hours straight. So it could have been the stress of the long trip. I don't know though.
In November 2010, I had a knot to come up on my left ovary. Went to and from ERs because of the pain it was giving me, 3 solid weeks, each month. At first they said cyst, then it was hernia, then endometriosis, then they didn't know what it was, so I was referred to a surgeon. He did more-less an exploratory surgery(Jan 2011), and removed a pea-sized mass. He sent it for testing, and when I returned to his office, he told me it was endometriosis, and set me up and appointment with my wonderful OB/GYN(female this time!). She also happens to be a specialist, which is why he sent me to her. She talked with me about the endometriosis, and prescribed me some birth control, to control the endometriosis, and the cramping that comes because of it. I never got it filled. She did a routine check-up, with the pap & that fun stuff, also felt for endometriosis knots. She felt none!
April 2nd & 3rd, 2011, I got two positive HPTs! I was so ecstatic! I scheduled an appointment for April 6, 2011, but unfortunately just 2 hours before time to be at the appointment, the bleeding started. I went to the local ER, where the pregnancy was confirmed, HCG was 2382. I was about 6 weeks. The ER DR did a vaginal exam and scraped with a long Q-Tip. The bleeding slacked up. I came home and rested as per the DRs instructions, I stood up after a nap, and flooded, bad. Everything, the pad, underwear, shorts, down my legs..it was horrific. I started bawling. We went to a different ER, and when there, they did an abdominal ultrasound, no sac. I got up to go clean up, so the tech could do a trans-vaginal ultrasound, but when I was in the bathroom, the lil bean fell out, into the toilet. :( I was devastated. There was nothing that could be done. They sent me home, and said to follow up with my OB/GYN in about a week. I did, and thankfully my body did perfect on its own, so there was no D&C needed. So the TTC journey got more serious. Nothing was happening, but in December, AF didn't show her ugly face, and I got a positive HPT(evening pee) at about 9-15 days LATE for AF(last before that was November 16). It was Christmas Eve, we told no one. Christmas day, I re-tested with FMU, no line. Christmas night, I started bleeding. I figure it was a chemical pregnancy.
February 28, 2012, saw my OB/GYN for my yearly visit. She did the usual. No blockages were found. March 13, 2012, AF. According to FertilityFriend, AF was due April 7th. But going by my Ovulation date of either March 29, or March 30, AF was supposed to show April 11, or April 12. She hasn't. I have had 3 positive tests so far! I will be getting bloodwork on April 13! The clinic decided not to do the bloodwork. I miscarried on April 19, 2012. :(
Well, faint positive on February 9, 2013 and a dark positive on the February 11, 2013, and I see my obgyn on February 19, 2013!!
