Surprise miracle!

Hi everyone! It's been a while since my last post and I hope everyone is doing ok.

I wanted to share with you all my miracle news, to give you all hope as well. I haven't posted for some time as I have found out that I have managed to conceive and I will be 20 weeks tomorrow!

I was told that I would have difficulty conceiving naturally and potentially never would, and it wasn't until the eve of my appointment with my endometriosis specialist to discuss fertility testing and treatment and I had found out I was pregnant.

I know me and my fiancé are incredibly lucky and I want people to read this and know that it is still possible, even if small. I had begun to give up on the idea of having my own children so it was definitely a surprise to discover.

Wishing an eternity of luck to all those going through fertility issues, endometriosis is a constant battle and still worries me now. Although I'm not currently having cycles to cause me pain, occasionally the baby can kick somewhere that can be scarred and it hurts! And knowing that my endo will creep back up on me after giving birth is dreadful.

All I can do is enjoy my miracle pregnancy and know I am strong enough to tackle my endo when it returns.

that is amazing - congratulations! Also a lot of the time pregnancy can reserve endo, so fingers crossed yours will be gone once baby is here safely xx

God bless and congrats. It's a blessing to have kids ,I am a mother of 2 adult sons -so happy endo didn't prevent that. But the life of endo is hard to bare and wish we had more options to prevent it from returning.

Congratulations!!! I used to read posts like yours and think 'great, but that will never be me and that person is probably 1 in 1.000.000' BUT that happened to me too! To my huuuuge surprise I found out I was pregnant the night before our appointment at the fertility clinic (to discuss trying a 2nd round of IVF). I'm currently 14 weeks so it really can happen!

I wish you and your miracle (and of course your fiancee too) a healthy and smooth journey towards finally becoming a family! :D :D

To everyone else who is still hoping, never give up! Every pregnant woman on this forum was once in the same shoes so why couldn't it be your turn next! :)


PS I share your thoughts about the Endo returning after the birth but try not to think about it now, just enjoy the break and hope you are one of the lucky ones.


Congratulations! Wishing you all the best for your pregnancy too, thank you for your kind words. It's lovely to see people read these posts and feel inspired or hope. :-)
