I’m sorry if this is upsetting for people who are ttc - I know how much it hurts to get a period when you’re trying and how jealous you feel when you see others who have managed to get pregnant. But I’m desperate and I don’t know where else to ask.
I’m currently 19 weeks pregnant with my first baby. The pregnancy has been horrendous from day 1, with spotting in the first trimester and severe pain constantly. Every time my womb stretches it feels like I’m having a period but 10 times worse and I’m in agony for days after as everything feels wrenched and sore. No ultrasound can find anything wrong so some consultants are assuming it’s endometriosis on my bladder and in my womb stretching and tearing, but others say pregnancy should ease the symptoms.
Is anyone else struggling at all, or has anyone else struggled with severe pain linked to endometriosis in pregnancy? I feel really alone and I’m mostly on bed rest, unable to work etc. I just don’t know if things will get better, or if I should resign myself to another 20 weeks of horrendous pain.
Any experiences would be greatly appreciated!
