endo and ttc

oh me
I've had endo since i was 12. Been with husband for 10 years. I'm 29.
December 2010 started trying to get pregnant. Beginning of 2011 I had 2 cysts.
Middle of the year still something wasn't right. Saw a new doctor. Put on clomid, nothing. Had HSG was fine.
Had a laparoscopy- abundance of adhesion's. A little after was put on Lupron. On lupron got a cyst & a period and then got pregnant the beginning of this year.
Had a miscarriage. Put on lupron again had my period all 3 months. June started prenatal vitamins.
My period is between 37-39 between.
I was 4 days late last month - took 3 prego tests all negative.
It says I was to ovulate the wkend of the 14th. Had sex everyday. My phone app said my period would come at the 10th, I counted the days and I guess it could have been actually this week.
But I bled for 5 days starting the 22nd. And it wasn't a normal period - it was more pink and even though it wasn't spotty - it wasn't super heavy. Bc I sometimes have to take that pill to reduce the bleeding. I was crampy though.
For a week now I feel or 2 i feel nauseated, my boobs feel heavy, i have little cramps, im exhausted, I can't really tell if i pee more bc I just normally do.
My first pregnancy I had shows signs really early & I was bloated really early (i know from hormones).

And yes i have mood swings mostly grumpy though. And a lot of foods I dislike that I really liked before.

I just feel like I'm losing it.
Pregnancy test says negative.

Do you believe all home pregnancy tests work?
Anybody have any suggestions?

I did call the doctor today. Lately I think he feels I cry wolf - but with endo you do not cry wolf you just cry.

no advice, but a big warm *hug* keep us posted or feel free to friend me. we've been TTC for 4 years with varying degrees of effort.

*huge hugs* I know where you're coming from.

If you feel something is off, or you feel different then get a blood test. I think in early days sometimes home tests come back negative.

I also maybe working myself up over nothing. However, today I've been feeling like pulsating in my lower right where my ovaries are. I did read some of the same signs of pregnancy could also be a cyst. My boobs don't hurt as much as normal.
I think my hormones are super crazy though. I hope he calls soon. And I hope the doctor believes me.
Thanks <3

Keeping my fingers crossed for you, and thinking good thoughts.

I know what you're going through. 6 years ttc, fertility treatments, a miscarriage, all while suffering endo. Feels so unfair. The tests don't lie, I am guilty of holding them under lights and trying so hard to see a line-- but when you're pregnant it shows without squinting.
The happy news is after my last lap (#4 for me) and a vacation the month following I got that bfp I was certain I'd never see. I'm about 17 weeks now and grateful every moment that it finally happened. It seems relaxing in every way is what finally worked for me (I started yoga nidra too before getting pregnant).

I know how much having a miscarriage hurts. But the upside is that you and DH can make babies. I lost mine for a common reason, even with how cruel it was, but part of me found hope in knowing my body could do it. I'm praying for you. I know the hurt, I don't know if I'll ever be able to dull it, and it's hard to know what the future holds. Best wishes!

aww thank you so much for saying this. Makes me emotional. I like to hear hope.
Congratulations! I'm truly happy for you! I hope you have a healthy pregnancy & baby!

I think we all want to believe something so much we have to realize it is not true and to keep trying.

I also know I shouldn't have pregnancy tests in the house at all.

I am going to find a specialist though. And I do like hearing people that give me actual support.

For everyone else - do not go on thebumps site - they are so very nasty and made me cry for the wrong reasons. My love for support no matter what health condition will always be lj.!
