I am grateful that despite endo and PCOS I am not affected by infertility, although conception was by no means fast. I am 14 weeks pregnant with my 3rd miracle. Just before conceiving this baby I had a bad flare up of endo and was in the process of getting a lap to see the extent of it. Obviously that was cancelled when I realised I was pregnant, so I don't know exactly how bad the endo is, although I have suffered with it for about 18 years undiagnosed until last year. My concern now is that I am still experiencing some of the pain I felt during the recent flare up and I'm worried about how it could be affecting my pregnancy. The Dr told me that pregnancy should take away all the symptoms, including the pain and indeed, that was the case during my last two pregnancies. Oddly it seems there is a direct link between the pain and my stress levels too - something I noticed before conception as well as now.
