Officially start my 2ww today 🤪

Hi everyone.

First trying since my second laparoscopy which treated endometriosis.

Last time we had success but miscarried.

I ovulated May 1st quite a significant day it’s the day Greek and Romans goddess of fertility😘

Told myself I won’t get stressed haha I wonder how long that will last... 🤪

Anyone else in the 2ww? All the best to you all xoxo

Thank you Jess! I have my scan next week. Should be 9 weeks by then. But I am so scared it will be bad news. I don't feel pregnant!! My husband's asks me everyday what my symptoms are. Really hoping this is our time. Feel scared x

I think when you’ve been ttc for a long while it is difficult to actually enjoy being pregnant the worry takes over 🤦🏽‍♀️I was the same.

Remember miscarriages aren’t really that common- only 1 in 4. I read the chance of miscarriage lessens considerably after 8 weeks 😁

My mother in law had no symptoms throughout all 3 of her pregnancies. Some women don’t. Every women’s pregnancy will be different and unique to her ❤️

All the best with the scan look forward to hearing happy news from you 😍 you deserve this rainbow baby 💝💝💝 xoxo

I went to hospital for my dating scan them they found out iv got high bp too much protein and blood in urine had to go back the next day to see if the bp meds had helped and they told me I'll be under renal team as it looks like iv got renal disease and high chance of developing preeclampsia need to go for a kidney scan and hope these problems can be managed and really pray I don't get preeclampsia

💝😘

Reply

You poor thing. That sounds hideous; can renal disease be managed? I assume they are keeping a close eye on you and baby? What a nightmare for you. I’m so sorry to hear you’re having such a horrible time when it should be such a happy time for you. This journey is so relentless at times I’m so angry you’re going through this crap 😡 I’m sure your baby fighter just like his/her mummy 😘 xoxo

I guess so that's why their transferring me to the renal team, I don't know too much about it and Google scares me tbh. I'm upset because iv had blood in my urine for two years and no one has ever checked my kidneys even though they said they would. I just hope it isn't as bad and can easily be dealt with, thanks hun things will work out if their supposed too 💝😘

Reply

Step away from google; google always paints the worst possible outcome.

I don’t know anything about it but could this be caused in anyway by your endometriosis? It can do some really weird things. the blood in the urine was that just during a period? Or all the time? I get that too on my period think mine caused by endo 🙄That is bad that they didn’t investigate properly don’t know what to say to that 🤦🏽‍♀️

When is your appointment? xoxo

Reply

It's always there blood in urine is constantt 3+++, they checked my bladder before that was fine, just never got to the bottom of the blood now theres protein there. I don't know much either hun. Iv got hospital again on Friday for bp check waiting on kidney scan and appointment with renal team. 💝😘

Oh goodness that sounds very stressful poor you. Can’t believe they ignored those symptoms.

Just much the same Jess. Prolactin still causing me problems although I got to speak to the GP this week and he thinks its connected to my underactive thyroid which was my gut feeling after doing some research. Ive got another blood test in 3 weeks time and if all not ok GP says he may adjust my meds again and agreed it would be time to get an endocrinologist involved. So all in not not great news but not bad. At least I have a supportive GP. Oh and we booked a holiday to cheery ourselves up too so have something to look forward to, off in 4 weeks!:)xx

Reply

Oh no how disappointing for you. Sorry to hear that. This journey is sure full of hurdles 🙄 🤦🏽‍♀️

I’m glad you have a good GP who is doing all he can 😊 it’s not much consolation but when you do the cycle you will know it has a better chance. Fingers crossed this gets resolved soon ğŸ¤žğŸ»

Holiday sounds perfect! Just what you need!!! ğŸŒžğŸ where are you going? xoxo

Yes it is disappointing but after having so many failures with good embryos under our belt we want to ensure that everything is perfect before trying again. There is only so many knocks you can take doing transfers with BFN's. So yes I feel that its positive to feel like we are giving ourselves the best chance!

A holiday is just what I need - had to kick my hubby into it a bit as he is self employed but he's on board now. We are off to Aruba in the Caribbean, cant wait!xx

I think that is the best way to view it; I felt like that bout my endo and fertility ; I knew it had returned and I wouldn’t conceive with it ( it grows in places that affect fertility nice of it 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️) You need to have that peace of mind to know you’ve done all you can. Sounds like you are in a good positive place 😍

Have a fantastic time away in 🇦🇼; do you both the world of good and you will both be relaxed which will be hugely beneficial prior to starting a cycle 😘

Well we have to take the positives out of our crappy situations and try to look forward or we'll drive ourselves crazy....or more crazy should I maybe say! Ha ha ha

In the crazy 2ww too 👍 when do you test?

I have had sore breasts since ovulation and recently severe fatigue and bloating. I had a few drops of brown blood this morning. Been so desperate not to symptom spot 😆Last time I had no/ little symptoms and still got a positive test and I felt no different ( miscarried) Its so hard to tell!!! 🙈

Are you feeling any different or have any symptoms? xoxo

Reply

Hi sorry could not fibd this website since been googling so much stuff 🤣

I did HPT on Thursday but negative, next day the faint line appears. Then i did again another one today and a bit more clearer than the other one but not sure about it. I will do it again tomorrow 😄

I think i have all the sympthoms except from spotting but i had cramps on wed to friday ( i felt 2 tines wich was really strong but like a thunderlight passing on my lower abdomin), grrrr... Bloated, constipation and sometimes LBM, and the most one is my breast.. it hurts feels so heavy since Sunday until now. I feel tired, and my pelvic bones are like breaking apart, my legs feels heavy. And today i felt lower back pain. 😣😣😣😃😃😃 i really hope this sympthons worth having and not only because of medications.

ah this morning.. i just cried because i wanted to have breakfast at my mom in law 🤣🤣🤣 got too emotional haha. I just misses her breakfast.

btw, my husband did not know that i bought hpt 😣😣 i just can't wait on Wednesday for my blood test.

😊😋

Thank you. I don’t know how much the endo is hindering it. All the medics say no but then they also told me it wouldn’t re grow back so fast and they were wrong. Part of me wonders if there is any point in trying because I don’t think we stand a chance and I dont want to be upset. It’s very difficult xoxo

Have you thought about some sort of progesterone in the tww as you've had some spotting hun?

I did that sneakily and it didn’t stop it ! And also took low dose aspirin to try to help things. Should I ask for a progesterone blood test? xoxo

Reply

Just remember the medics are not always right hun, we sometimes have to be our own advocate if I would, have listened to my drs I'd be struggling with the ivf journey now, as for progesterone yours will be above 30 as u ovulate just like mine was I was 34.4 but to my mind I still thought that was low the progesterone they gave me didn't absorb properly, so I bought progesterone cream which helped. They go by guidelines or even sometimes not. But I found with my spotting that the progesterone did help. 💝😘💝

True. It’s awful we have to fight to get heard or take matters into our own hands 🤦🏽‍♀️

They all told me my endo couldn’t return so quickly and made me feel like I was going mad ☹️ and it was a matter of time before I’d fall again; it was back and lots more of it this time. Even my fertility specialist was shocked by it being back so much so he sent me to an endo specialist.

But my endo did improve this month not sure if it was the progesterone or low dose aspirin ; worth doing for that! 😆

Did it take a while to stop the spotting? I think the medics will blame the endo for it. Xoxo

From the moment I found out I had endo I pushed the drs even more but also but I reserched so much because I knew they'd barely scrape the surface.

It took me two cycles to get on top of the spotting I was shocked as the research suggested 3-6 month but it worked. It may take you longer as your endo is worse than mine, I definatly believe it roots back to the endo the spotting does because of the estrogen dominance, do remember that ppl with endo do get pregnant and have children. My aunties was so bad they confidently told her shell never have kids. She had three. Do what's best for you but don't give up you've got 5-7 month to wait for your op too much time to loose not trying. 💝😘💝

It is frustrating most definitely hun, plus what works for one endo patient won't work for the other, it's so complex that's why we need to be our own advocates we know our own bodies better than any one. My grandad is under the illusion that because my aunt had kids and her endo didn't bother her afterwards that I should be the same, 🤔

Have a good think do some reserach and you'll get there hun.

But remember endo causes estrogen dominance. When I went to gp I argued that because of endo causing the dominance I really feel that progesterone would, help and I wouldn't spot no more, he gave it me after a read in his book but it didn't absorb so my consultant said they'd look at giving it me another way. Which she didn't have to as I used my cream and weaned my self off it at 12-13 weeks. 💝😘💝
