So, I couldn't hold off any longer and tested this morning with FMU at 8DPO and got a very very faint BFP! I know it's early to be testing but I admit I'm a test-a-holic! I'm not going to get to excited yet, since there is a chance of it being an evap line. The line appeared within the time limit, but it got darker after it dried. I'll probably test again in the morning to see if it gets any darker. I'm trying to get an early result so I can get into to the doc ASAP since I've always had early MC's. with my son I was seeing a specialist and was put on progesterone suppositories. Fingers crossed!! View Thread
Well FF changed my O date so I am 13DPO today. So that would put me at 6DPO when I tested. And there was very very faint line on about half of the other tests I've taken, but they never got any darker. So I'm thinking they just were evap lines even though they showed within the time limit.View Thread
Morning update: I tested again this morning, and again I think I see the very faintest line. I'm starting to think my eyes are playing tricks on me. I think I'm going to wait a couple of days to test again. I'm having a garage sale starting tomorrow, so hopefully that will keep my mind off of it! Lol!View Thread
My update: 7DPO and wanting to test so badly, but holding out because I know it's too early. Lol! I've been really tired, I even went to bed at 8:45 on Saturday...that is way early for me! I felt nauseous the other night when I went to bed. And feel slightly constipated. I know these "signs" are way early and probably don't mean anything...View Thread
I'm so sorry for your losses! I went through the same thing when I was ttc my first. I had a loss in Feb and then again in Aug. then I got pg with my son in Sept, the very next cycle! After my second loss we were referred to a specialist, and they did a bunch of blood tests and an ultra-sound of my ovaries and uterus.
All they could really find was slight PCOS, so they prescribed me metformin, but I got pg again before it had time to "work". We are now trying for our second and I had another mc this last March.
As for finding the courage to try again, I don't know if your religious, but we pray and pray and pray some more! I know there is a reason it all happened, and it will happen in God's timing! It also gave me hope and peace to know that I have 3 children waiting to meet me one day in Heaven! That's how I found the courage!
This has been my first month TTC since my loss in February. My husband and I had decided to take a break until I was sure that I was going to have health insurance.
Today is 15DPO, I took a test this morning and it was negative. I am sure AF is going to start anytime. I was so sure that I was PG, and I had just gotten my hopes up just to be disappointed. I normally don't have a problem getting PG, it normally happens pretty quick after I start trying, but keeping the pregnancy has been my problem.
I recently just changed my OB, because I was really dissatisfied with my last one. When I got PG with my son I was seeing a specialist and was put on progesterone suppositories until I was 10 weeks. Then I was released from her and started seeing my OB. In February when I found out I was PG, at 4 weeks, I told the nurse everything over the phone, even though it was already in my file. Well, my OB didn't want to see me until I was 8 weeks. When we went in for the ultra-sound there was no heart-beat and the baby was only measuring 6 weeks. I don't know if being put on progesterone would have saved the pregnancy, but she didn't seem like she even cared.
So anyways, I met with my new OB a few weeks ago and told her everything. She told me to call as soon as I get a BFP and they will get me in right away.. She was recommended to me by 2 different people, one of which was my doula, so she see's a lot of doctors!
I have some very sad news. I went in for my first US (vaginal) on Wednesday, I was 8.5 weeks. My doctor couldn't find a heartbeat, and the baby was only measuring 6 weeks. She had me go to the radiologist who did a more powerful US, and she couldn't find a heartbeat either. So yesterday I had to have a D&C. This was my 3rd loss. I had two losses before my son, and now this one.
I am so upset with my doctor and her office, I will be switching once I become PG again. I told them when I first called in, about 4.5 weeks that I had to be put on progesterone for the first 10 weeks when I was PG with my son (I was seeing a specialist at that time because of my previous 2 losses, so I didn't start to see her until later in my pregnancy). Her office completely ignored my request to get in earlier because of this. I didn't get in to see the nurse and do blood work until 7 weeks. Then I didn't even get to see the doctor until Wednesday.
I don't know if the MC could have been prevented, but I do want a doctor that actually cares about my concerns. As soon as I have a period I will be able to try again, so I will be joining you all in the journey to get pregnant!
