Forum home Getting pregnant Long term TTC & infertility

The post I never thought I would write..........

Hi girls,

Some of you may know me, we have been ttc for 2 and a half years, diagnosed unexplained infertility. Well after losing loads of weight we finally had IUI this month and I cant believe I am typing this............BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly never thought it would happen (am sure you can all relate to this) so me and hubby are a bit in shock but sooooooooo delighted!!

Its so early days (just 4 weeks), I have an early scan 18th Oct - not sure how I am going to last till then!!

Even if it all goes wrong (fingers crossed it wont) at least I have been able to get pregnant.

Wishing you all the best in this awful journey and thanks for reading
