…a BFP! My very first ever in 19 cycles of TTC. I’m completely stunned but also very excited and happy. I’m only 10dpo, which is very early, but I’m cautiously optimistic!
My story in a nutshell goes like this: DH and I started TTC after our wedding in Sept 2012. After 6 months with no luck, we had preliminary fertility tests run and were told everything was fine and to keep trying. After a year of trying, I had an HSG done (in Nov 2013) and was told one of my tubes was completely blocked and filled with fluid (called a hydrosalpinx). The doctor recommended IVF as our next step and advised natural conception was a long shot, if even a possibility. I got a second opinion where I was recommended to have a laparascopy to remove the blocked tube and check the status of the other one before proceeding to IVF. The second doctor explained that the fluid in the blocked tube impedes pregnancy, even when the tubes are bypassed with IVF, because the fluid runs through the uterus and is toxic to pregnancy. So, I had the laparascopy to remove my bad tube on Jan 23rd, 23 days ago. DH and I BD’d one time in the window this cycle, and here at 10dpo, I got a BFP (on a wondfo, FRER and digital!). It’s still VERY early, but just knowing that we CAN conceive is an amazing relief and extremely exciting. Now, I have to wrap my mind around the fact that I’m growing a little human….
I honestly don’t think I could have made it through this last year and a half if it weren’t for the amazing women on the TTC boards of WB, especially those who have been a part of 6+ and 1+, whether currently a member or those who have moved on. Thank you to all of you who have been there through this journey – it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, and you ladies have been an amazing support and you mean the world to me. I can’t wait to see each of you (who hasn’t already crossed over) become a mama. You all were made for it. XOXOXOX
Now, for 10DPO pics:

@cinderella2: Thank you!
@lindsayandchris09: Hahahah I LOVE the rambling! 😉 He had no idea I was testing – I haven’t tested early in over a year. I had some strange symptoms and kinda had a feeling, so I took the test and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the second line. I FINALLY got to give him the onesie I bought him the first cycle we started TTC (a year and a half ago) when I thought I was KU (ahh, sweet, naive little me….). He was shocked. and then I showed him the digital test that said Pregnant and we both were and still are pretty much stunned. Thanks for the kind words, hun – I truly believe you are not far behind! Always have my fingers crossed for you.
