After trying to conceive for 4 and a half months, I was over the moon to discover I am pregnant, and so was my partner.
I took a test and an extremely faint line appeared, I started to think maybe I could be, however the line was SO faint I disregarded it. The next morning I took another and the line was again - extremely faint, however it was darker than the day before, I literally started shaking a little, thinking to myself "omg, I actually might be pregnant". I didn't want to get my hopes too high though.
I bought two more pregnancy tests and took them the next day, I took the test and my result came back "invalid" - I was super annoyed as I couldn't take the next one for over 30 minutes till the invalid sign cleared as it was a digital test and I was literally about to leave for work. I couldn't wait till I was home to take the next test so I took it at work, and there it was, clear as day "PREGNANT". I immediately sent the picture to my other half (and my friend), I couldn't believe it. We were trying but we didn't expect it to happen so quickly as I had kind of gotten used to the negative result each month prior.
I called the early pregnancy unit the next day to book an early scan due to previous miscarriages and other complications (uterus problems), however the first scan she was able to give me was three weeks away. I was extremely disappointed as I expected one pretty much straight away due to my history and my complications.
Of course I had to take more pregnancy tests later in the week, JUST to be sure!
I returned back to the ultrasound room and lay down, the tech seemed very happy as she was able to locate a good sized yolk sac, however could not yet see a fetal pole or heartbeat. I thought I was seven weeks, however she put me back a week, however after a lot of research I really did expect to see more on a 6 week ultrasound. My partner was overjoyed at the good news, the tech didn't seem too bothered and congratulated us.
I spent the full night googling stories of others in similar situations, reading if there could be a good outcome of not seeing a fetal pole or heartbeat at 6 weeks, there were a lot of positive stories, however there were a lot of negative ones also. It was only 9 days till my scheduled ultrasound at EPAS (early pregnancy assessment suite), so I tried to remain calm, although it was very hard.
The next 9 days felt like eternity, however finally Friday 13th arrived and it was time for our scan. 13 has always been a lucky number for me so I tried not to concentrate too much on the fact Friday 13th is unlucky. My name was called and we made our way to the ultrasound room, I lay down on the bed and really was hoping and praying at this point. After a few seconds the tech was able to show me my baby on the screen, and also a good strong heartbeat. I was so overjoyed I began to cry. The only issue is she dated me at 6 weeks 6 days whereas based on date of conception I should of been 7 weeks 2 days, so I was put back again my 3 days - which is worrying me as I was already put back a week based on the date of my last period.
I am trying to remain positive as we did see a bub and a good heartbeat - Which is a huge progression from our previous ultrasound.
Needless to say - We are overjoyed, I just wish this axiety and worry would stop taking over.
