I am shocked to find out that I am pregnant (with my 4 (very first pregnancy when I was 22 was a miscarriage, and I went on to have two beautiful, VERY healthy girls at age 25 & 26.) I'd prepared myself for a long and emotionally fraught time ttl, and my other childless career orientated friends had bought all the ovulation kits we could find to start our journey. I was diagnosed with endometriosis last year (private scan in the UK) after suffering two years with an IUD (my body HATES them).
Last month, I was overjoyed to find out I ovulated, in fact, all of our mates jokingly toasted it at the pub, the men finding it particularly hilarious that I'd mention it (think sniggering 8 year olds).
Two days after conception, according to my ovulation test, I woke from a daytime nap with this lovely, wonderful fluttering in my lower uterus. I woke up smiling, just KNOWING. It was so weird. Anyhow, I waited till 17dpo, then got a very faint positive and immediate negative test result with Predictor Uk (terrible brand!) the next day, I used two clear blue digitals and got the proof positive!
I am waiting to tell him today, as I am very nervous that he'll feel 'robbed' of his good time trying - I felt that way a tiny bit, can you believe that, as it was our very first go and this is his first pregnancy! I am also prepared for the 15 week wait to see if the pregnancy is healthy and viable - having had two from a previous marriage - I understand all the crazy hurdles and emotions and difficulties that may come.
But for now, I rejoice our fertility and am completely gobsmacked that we were a "one shot wonder". Unbelievable! I am so proud of him and his wee swimmers! Fingers crossed he will be too!
