OMG...After 7 yrs...BFP!!!!! — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

OMG...After 7 yrs...BFP!!!!!

I finally get to post it here!!!! We've been TTC since 2004. We adopted our little boy in Dec of 06 and were still actively trying to conceive. I have endo and scar tissue surrounding my right tube and ovary so only my left side is functioning. My CM proved to be a hostile environment for sperm. I had 7 IUIs that all failed. The Drs told me that IVF was my only option. We just proved them wrong tonight when I got my very first BFP!! I am in complete shock and cannot stop crying!!


I never believed this would actually happen for us, so now I don't know what the next step is. Do I go to my regular Dr for tests or do I need to get an OB/GYN? Or since I have know fertility/hormone issues, should I contact my RE even though this wasn't a medicated cycle?

Re: OMG...After 7 yrs...BFP!!!!!

  • Wow, that is wonderful!  Congratulations :)  


    As far as which dr to call, I'd call either your OB/GYN or your RE (even though, as you said, this was not a medicated cycle), and either of them should tell you what to do next.

  • Congratulations!  I would think that if this is a surprise BFP and you've not seen your RE in a while, calling your OB/GYN would be most appropriate.  That is super awesome!!!So happy for you!

    Wow, that's a long time to ttc.  So much congrats!  What does your DS think?

    He saw all of the excitement last night (my parents came over and my mom cried when she saw the test) and he joined in. We told him there's a baby in mommy's tummy and he kissed my stomach. Before we went to bed he said, "Wait, kiss the baby." and pointed to HIS stomach. He's very silly. Prayerfully we will have 8-9 months to prepare him :)

    Thanks so much for the congrats ladies!!! I still can't believe it even though I just took a digital this morning and it says pregnant!
