Sensitive post ***

was a little apprehensive posting this and don’t want to offend anyone but ive recently found out im pregnant again it’s very very early and now the worrying starts I’m very happy But worried due to my previous misscarrige I didn’t have any treatment for my endometriosis although I recognised advice from others i came to the conclusion that things could go any way and my consultant wasn’t against me trying again and he’s one of the top surgeons in the u.k surgery could drop my egg reserve and no surgery could still cause issues so I decided to just allow nature to do what will be.

I also wanted to point out that there are a lot of posts on getting pregnant with endometriosis and that after the endless posts I see on here I really think there are lots of people who are not on health unlocked which have successfully conceived with endometriosis as health unlocked is a support group we are here for just that and when it’s not needed we move on with life.hence the lack of posts on success also their is not enough evidence to say surgery always helps it may in some people but not in others

I send baby dust to all those trying and will accept private messages as don’t want any offence to anyone all my love

That’s great news, you’ve been working hard at diet etc.

I’d have thought it would give some hope.

Thankyou I really have been trying with my diet and pain free a lot so glad my period didn’t come as I hated it every month with the excessive bleeding although I got rid of pain the bleeding was awful

Have you spoken to GP it gynae about it yet?

Do you think the lockdown has been more relaxing as well

Afrohair in reply to Moon_maiden

I wouldn’t say I’ve been totally relaxed and no I’ve only got in touch with midwife they don’t class endo as high risk which is annoying I’m going private for a early scan at 6 weeks as they don’t offer a scan till 12

Probably a good idea.

I don’t think this condition is classed as high anything for some reason.

Keep fingers crossed they take this onboard properly. It would be fantastic if they did and made life just a little bit easier for a change 😊

I know the lady on phone didn’t even know what it was but has put all the information on paper so I’m hoping someone will know

I’m sure they will, I can understand admin not knowing, the midwife/nurse will. Worth making them aware at the very least.

Congratulations, so pleased for you ❤

Really it was terrible in my 2ww as I didn’t really have any symptoms the only thing I did differently is I remember being really tired one day and went to bed in the afternoon and didn’t get up for a long time.i still had a little endo pain so thought I was out I’ve just got this feeling that for some people pregnancy isn’t always a cure!when I had my misscarrige my endo came back two fold x

Congrats!!!

Thankyou love 💓 x

Hello lovely so pleased for you, we have messaged previously. Your story is similar to mine except dont know if I have endo or adhesions due to c section prob both.

Giving us all hope. We too have decided to start trying. Await my fate next week

X

Aww good luck ❤️

This is such lovely news! I wanted to say congratulations, and also ask how you arranged the private scan?

I’m also very recently pregnant, for the first time, and I’m SO happy but so terrified 😂

Glad to see I’m not the only one! X

Thankyou and congratulations to you too🥰I’ve not arranged my scan yet but I will try and book it soon as I know if the midwife is making me wait till 12 if it gets to 5 weeks and my midwife doesn’t offer me a 6 week scan we have a private scanning clinic in my area it’s £79 just google baby scan clinic in your area. im worried with me having a previous misscarrige and endo so don’t want to wait till 12 week I’ve always been high risk so don’t know why they made me wait last time I can only put it down to the terrible midwife I had she was ready to go on maternity so wouldn’t have cared she was gone by time I misscarried and kept telling us she’s leaving and we were passed from one person to another and they forgot to even scan us at 12 week it was almost 13 by then I won’t be waiting for nhs again usually quite good but gone down hill lately wish I could afford it all private tbh buts it’s thousands of pounds to have a baby privately I’ve got to have another c section.congratulations to you too I’m going to try relax as much as I can

Wow sounds like you had a really horrible time previously, really hoping this is a smoother ride for you.

Relaxing is easier said than done though right 😅

I will google the baby scan clinic - thank you! X

Oh yeah right I’m trying to force myself lol but I get bored easy and just eat the whole house out lol

Sounds awful. I know from my first pregnancy though that when I had some spotting and pain i just took myself to the early pregnancy unit at the hospital and they did a scan for me. That may be an option too.

Yes never thought of that I always waited for my appointments so that’s an idea x

Yes they cant turn you away and I was 7 weeks by that point and felt so reassured.

That’s good .and I don’t know about that cause I begged for one after my misscarrige and they wouldn’t offer me one told me just to wait till test turned negative got sent home and still had placenta inside me had to push it out at home while my mum pulled so thinking about it ,it might just be my area and I heard your not supposed to pull placenta but we had no choice as they sent me home

Oh it’s all come flooding back now I almost forgot guess I’ve been trying to forget till now wouldn’t like to go through that again

Oh love sorry to trigger those memories. It's such a postcode lottery. I really hope it's a different experience this time. Keep me posted x

I will thankyou x

Out of interest did either of you get that intense ovulation type pain a week before your period was due?

Hi love I only just noticed this I used to get pain before my period and ovulation pain when I first found out I had endo but since I changed my diet I don’t and my pain has got a lot better almost pain free since being a year on
