Topic: Tamarra's Story
Maybe many woman feel this way, but for me I truly feel that I was meant to be a mother. My first attempt at becoming a mother was July 2007. I had made the decision to become a SMBC. I ordered the swimmers and they came, but that time my eggs didn't cooperate. I didn't get a smiley so I sent the swimmers back.
August 2009 I gave it another try, this time with my partner at the time even though she wasn't really interested in being a parent. I did conceive this time, unfortunately it did not last. I miscarried.
I tried again in October and it was a BFN.
This is my first time since then.
Now I am in a happy and healthy relationship, with a beautiful woman that I truly feel is my life partner. Together we have decided to become parents and I have never been happier.
I have a 28 day cycle and I usually get a smiley on the 14 or 15 day. Of course this month with swimmers waiting, I didn't get my smiley until day 18 at 2pm. We inseminated on 9/6 and 9/7 at 7, 15, and 28 hours after the smiley.
Today is 6 DPO and here are my symptoms thus far. I feel the same way I did the first time I tried and I was pregnant. But I had some symptoms the second time and I wasn't so I just don't know if it is real or in my head but I want to keep track anyway.
1 DPO Headache, bloated
2 DPO bloated
3 DPO Bloated
4 DPO bloated
5 DPO Bloated, slight nasal congestion, exhaustion and crampy
6 DPO Bloated, slight cramping, and exhaustion
I went to see a new doctor for a routine physical the week before we were set to try, and he noticed I had an ultrasound last month that showed a two cysts. He ordered me a repeat ultrasound to see if the cysts were gone. I had the ultrasound on 2 DPO and it showed a complex cyst on my right ovary. I have to follow-up with an ob-gyn on Sept 30th, hopefully I have a BFP by then as well!
