Here's the flip side for you ladies..I am 5 weeks along..confirmed pregnancy with several HPTs and 2 digital ones..I have absolutely no symptoms..no cramping, no nausea nothing...this is BB4 for me so I'm used to having some symptoms..has anyone ever had that and have everything turn out fine??View Thread
Hi anon57849..first congrats on the BFP!! The spotting was probably implantation bleeding and the sensation while peeing could have been a urinary infection..I also am 5 weeks along and I also had the spotting for 1 and a half days and I think I remember an itchy sensation for a few days afterwards..then I found out I was pregnant.. I also have to wait til April 2nd for my 1st OB appt..where abouts do you live..I am in Canada so the appt. being that far is normal around here.. I would not worry too much (as if we ever could do that!!) if you are not experiencing any pain or discomfort and also if you have no spotting then things should be progressing good.. As for symptoms I am also at a lack for some and I also have been wondering if it meant that there might be a problem..all the nurses I have spoken to at my OBs office say to stay calm and not to worry too much..some women are just lucky and have no symptoms and some women will start getting the symptoms just later on..around week 6-8 is when it might start.. I hope I was able to help you a little and please keep me posted on your situation..good luck View Thread
Hi there and so sorry for what you are going through..this is just a thought but since you m/c on January 1st '12 and tested positive on February 4th '12 is it not possible that the positive was not from a new pregnancy but from the old one? Drs usually recommend waiting a cycle before conceiving again so to be safe you should of had your cycle in February..after my m/c last summer it took 5 weeks to get my cycle back..pregnancy hormones tend to take a while sometimes to go back to 0 so maybe the test just picked up the old hormones which would explain why they cannot see anything on a scan.. This is just a thought and I do hope for the best for you..let us know how it turns out View Thread
March 27th is a long wait Zaysmama..I am in the same situation my 1st appt. is April 2nd and I will be about 12 weeks by then (am now 5 weeks).. For me though it is the norm in the province where I live in Canada..View Thread

Hope..Im so sorry to read this now..after the last post I had just left you..Im so sorry I didnt know..at least as you say your health is ok after this and now you know what the problem was so the next time will be the right time.. Take some time as you said to regroup and spend time with family and close ones but when you are ready to conceive again, look me up on the Trying to conceive after loss board..there you will find the best group of women to help you and support you when you will feel ready to embark on the TTC journey again..til then take care of yourself and drop by to visit me sometimes..I will think of you xoxoView Thread
Hi Hope, Im happy to read that your levels went up nicely this time..Im also wondering if your Dr. did the u/s they said they would do when you reached 1000..I think all will be fine now though and am very happy for you..congrats View Thread
I so dont know what to tell you Hope..on the one hand I feel optimistic, your levels are rising as you've said but on the other hand, since its not doubling the way it usually does and since the spotting has come back and gotten darker in color this worries me..if your OB isnt worried then do keep thinking positive.. Once that HCG will be at 1000 you will at least be able to have an u/s done so they can see whats happening..keeping my fingers crossed for you and sending out positive vibes..good luck and keep me posted as always View Thread
