Okay...so I posted this in the introduction forum (gonna fix that after I write this here lol). BUT:

WOW! I never thought this day would come. I have endometriosis and was with my ex for nearly 12 years (10 of which we never used any birth control...and 6 we actively "tried" to conceive). We split up Sept of 2009 and I've since met someone amazing this passed Dec (New Year's Eve actually). Finally feel like I've met my soul mate. Never had anyone who makes me laugh as much as he does. AND...now I just got confirmation from my blood test that I am most definitely 100% pregnant! I am SOOOO excited! I'm 30 and was seriously getting discouraged...and the timing might not be great because of our current living situation...but none of that seems to matter so much right now. I'm on cloud 9. =D

I've been on these forums for years...but I've been away for an extremely long time. Just never expected to be back on here announcing that I was pregnant! OMG! Yeah...just got the call from the doctor a few minutes ago...so I'm still VERY hyper. lol

I'm lying down with my laptop and taking it easy right now because I've got mild af type cramping and some light spotting (brownish in color). Everywhere I've read said this was fairly normal...so I'm not getting worked up about it...just going to take it easy. I'll be getting a referral to my old OBGYN later this week. Last time I seen her was almost 8 years ago when I had my surgery for my endometriosis. This is an amazing success for me.

Ahh...just soooo happy!!! Very Happy
No doubt you'll be seeing me around on here a LOT more often now. hehehehe!
Thanks for reading my little mini-novel. Razz

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Congratulations for the great news you received from your doctor. However, be incomplete rest, and avoid having further intercourse for some time since this could be a precious pregnancy for you. Watch out for bleeding/discharge becoming heavy or increasing in intensity, watch out for cramps increasing in intensity. Go ahead with serial HCG serum levels done to be sure of the rising levels and pregnancy going on smoothly. If levels are found to be low, then external supplementation would be needed to prevent chances of miscarriage. Be in regular follow-up with your OB/GYN.
Take care.
