Hey! This is my first post. I was wondering if anyone was also having the same problems as I am or able to offer some advice?
My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for about three years now. I already have two children from a previous marriage (aged 12 and 14.)
I fell pregnant (finally) last May with twins. We were absolutely over the moon but sadly a few days before my twelve week scan I started to miscarry. It was a natural miscarriage and it happened at home. I had to have a scan a few days later to make sure it was complete, and it was.
I decided to see my GP a few weeks ago, to see if there was something wrong as I still haven't fallen pregnant again. She was great and sent me for some blood tests which came back normal and an ultrasound scan, which I had done last Tuesday.
At the scan I was told that my uterine lining was quite thick (15mm) for day 18 of my cycle. I chart my cycles so I knew that I hadn't ovulated yet and she said that would explain quite a large left ovary. ( I actually got my positive OPK the next day so I think I ovulated day 20.) I was sent away and told to see my GP in a week to get the results.
I've recently got back from my doctors appointment this evening and I have been left feeling a little worried to be honest. The scan showed a 3mm growth inside my uterus. The Doctor has told me she is going to book me in for another scan at the beginning of my cycle, which is normally between 28-31 days, so I imagine that will be in the next week and a half and she has also referred me to the gynaecologist. I can't help feeling worried. I don't know what this growth is, as it cant be a pregnancy. Can anyone offer any information. It would be gratefully received! Just feeling like it's one thing after another at the moment and really didn't understand what this might mean regarding falling pregnant or my health???
Welcome to BNB.
Sorry for you loss. xx
I can't really help with your query as I don't have a clue what it might be. The only thing I will say is that if the doc thought it was something to worry about, I think she would have 'prepared' you a little before your appt with the gynie. Try not to think about things too much until you've been for your next appointment.
GL honey - keep us informed xx
Thank you so much for responding to my post and the warm welcome ) I think it helped just to have someone reply. I will definitely keep you informed as to what happens. I have often used this site for reference in the past and when going through my miscarriage. It really helped! So I thought I would finally join up ) maybe someone else will go though this and need an answer in the future. Thanks again for taking the time to reply to me! xxxx
Hi Leinzlove, thanks for your reply. Yes, it may well be. I just wish I could have it done now, it's the waiting part that does my head in! I very pleased that yours went away on it's own, that must have been a huge relief ). I hope the same happens with me too. It was reassuring to read your post. Thanks again, xxx
Yes, the waiting is terrible. I had a lot of pain on my left side. I was worried about etopic as we were TTC. But BFN and AF came. So, I scheduled appointment with Gyno. He sent me for urinysis and a scan. I then found out I had a cyst on my left ovary.
He said we'd just wait and see if it grew. Well, I was scheduled for another scan in December. And it showed that it was completely gone.
I've heard women can get pregnant with cysts. And that pregnancy and cysts even go together. My sister had one during her full term pregnancy.
I hope you don't have to wait to long! And I wish you a sticky bean FAST!
Is it common to have pain with a cyst then? I never knew that they can go away on their own, how fantastic! I don't really get pain, but I do feel like I constantly have period cramps though. It always seems to be between ovulation until arrives. Maybe this 'growth' is what's causing the cramps? Ugh, I hope they get me in quickly. Also, I'm a little worried that if I were to have conceived this cycle that it may cause problems.
Wishing you a sticky bean too!!! Keep me informed xxx
Yes, cysts can be very very painful. Mine weren't overly painful, but like AF type cramps and on my left side. It showed up out of the blue around ovulation. So, I was hopeful and very disapointed to find out it wasn't because of pregnancy.
Yes, they are common and definitley can go away on thier own. I'm thinking and praying for you. I didn't stop TTC when I found out I had one. But, I didn't fall pregnant either.
I'm hoping I O soon. I'm on CD 24, longer cycle for me. But, sadly I just MC on March 6. I'm hoping to try right away. But, my body is yet to cooperate. I've been monitoring CM, and it was looking good two days ago, OPK's nearly positive. But yesterday I still have the CM, but OPK got fainter. So, I'm like GRRRR! I'm very impatient.
Come on sticky beans! I just can't conceive fast enough.
Thanks for the advice KatM, I have read about fibroids too. I guess I'm just going to have to wait for my next ultrasound to see what they say. Sooo frustrating!! xxx
Leinzlove, I'm very sorry for your loss too, I pray that your body gets back to normal soon, so you are able to conceive a very sticky bean. I know how heart breaking it is. From what you said about your symptoms from a cyst it sounds very much like what is happening to me. I too, feel very crampy around ovulation and it continues until my period. I also find myself getting quite hopeful over my two week wait because that is exactly how I felt when I did fall pregnant, it's so cruel!! Sometimes I think back to being a teenager and being told how easy it is to fall pregnant......who knew it could be this hard??!!! I fell so easily with my other children, but that was nearly thirteen years ago. I brought them up on my own and never thought I would have any more children, life was so hard working all hours and being on my own. Now I have finally met the man of my dreams who is desperate to be a father and it feels like it's the one thing I can't give him and the one thing I now want more than anything! I know that it may well happen again but I just have this feeling deep inside that its not going to.
That's not to say I will give up though, It just gets you down sometimes doesn't it. My last miscarriage was my second in the last five years, they were the only two times we have conceived. So that makes me very nervous for the next time I get a
Sending lots and lots of hugs and fairy dust your way xxxxxxxxx
