I never thought I would get pregnant. I was told it would be unlikely as I had very bad endometriosis and womb cancer. My husband and I were so happy and felt so blessed when we got pregnant in August last year. Unfortunately I miscarried at 11 weeks. We decided to try again and were totally shocked when we got pregnant only two months later. I am now nearly 33 weeks pregnant and love my bump. I do have some stretchmarks on it and I do worry about how my body will look afterwards. Sometimes I get a bit depressed when I think I will probably have to work at getting in shape for the first time. But I know that my body has done something amazing. It made my baby, our little miracle. And my husband says he finds my body more beautiful than ever, because it is looking after and growing our baby. Below is my bump at 32 weeks

    How wonderful you look! Congratulations on your pregnancy, and making it past 33 weeks!! My baby was born at 33w5 days, so any day you go past that you should consider a miracle – Even if you do have stretchmarks! :-)

    I am 25 and had surgery 3.5 months ago for endometriosis…I lost one ovary but still have the other. I have the hope that I can still have children in a few years. Congratulations to you!

    I have endometriosis also. I had a laparoscopy 2 years ago. My endometriosis was in the worst stage, my bowel was attached to my left ovary. But the Dr. cleaned it all out and gave me hope of having a baby since I had a healthy uterus. We tried fertility treatments 5 months with no success. I finally turned it over to God and quit doing the fertility treatments. I got pregnant 2 months later. Our little baby boy is 5.5 months now. I look at him everyday and remember what a miracle he is. We are currently off b-control now in hopes of having another. Since my endo was so bad the Dr. said I need to try and have them close together since it will most likely return.

    Congrats on your pregnancy! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who went through this!

    I have endometriosis too…I am not sure what level though since I have never had an ultrasound. My husband and I are trying for a baby this year. Hearing your story gives me hope. Do you have any suggestions in trying to figure out an ovulation cycle. Since I am so irregular its hard to use a calander correctly. Any help or suggested websites would be greatly appreciated. Wish me luck!
