I am so happy that everything worked out ok! Thank you for that information. Did you ever try to regaulate your cycles with medication or just stick to charting?

I hope you have a healthy and happy 9 mths!! I was stalking the march mommies to check on you!

We are not sure what happend with those pregnacy test but i threw them all out. My new doctor is amazing and we have a clear cut plan! Will prob start clomid next cycle.

Thank you so  so so much for your prayers… I really don’t think you guys know how much that meant to me and helped me get through this.

@Mrsluckywife:  Excellent post πŸ™‚ I often wondered how I would go about this if getting a BFP as I also have long/irregular cycles. My last period was July 7th, but didn’t O until July 30 (CD26). If we were to get a BFP this cycle I wondered how the doctors would act (exactly what you went through, is what I suspect would totally happen). Is there something about charting that doctors don’t like to “believe” or accept? Do they think they know better? I can’t imagine all the stress you went through, when deep down I bet you knew everything was going okay, but they just made things worse.

Thank you for your post. I will be making sure my dr is well aware when we one day get our BFP that I want to go off of where I think we are vs where they think we would be based on LMP.

Glad you saw the little heartbeat, happy and health 9 months, and CONGRATS!

I’m glad this had a happy ending, but sorry it was so stressful! I also wonder why doctors are so distrustful of charting. When you are seeking fertility treatments, don’t they have you chart to make sure you are timing things right? Then why wouldn’t they look at your chart and believe you, or at least, go in with the assumption that you weren’t wrong, and go from there? 

This is a good post and will hopefully save other people some stress!

@StaceyA:  Yeah, so far both my doctor and the nurse in my doctor’s office have ignored me when I’ve told them that my EDD should be later than it is because I O’d on CD18 not CD14. I even showed them my chart and they totally ignored it. Please God, let me get into a midwifery practice soon!

great post, and so happy for you that it turned out okay!!

i had a similar experience….i also have very irregular periods, hadn’t had one since last fall…early May i started getting very strong PMS symptoms and just thought my period was finally going to arrive soon…2 wks past by and i still had symptoms but no period….a google search made me realize that i could be pregnant so i bought a test and it was positive…so i called my ob/gyn and had an apt with her, told her i have very irregular periods but we weren’t charting so i had no idea how far along i was….she gave me referral to get a dating u/s and when i went the tech couldn’t find anything externally….my heart dropped when she said that….so she went internally and she was able to find the sac and mentioned she saw the yolk sac too but that it seemed way to early to tell how far along i was, she estimated i was 3-4 wks….

i left there happy to know there was at least something in there but very worried that it was soooo early that i could miscarry, etc….it was def nervewrecking!

but i’m 16 wks now, n my last apt, LO had a strong heartbeat so hopefully everythings progressing along good in there lol πŸ™‚

@Mrsluckywife:  I am SO glad to hear everything IS ok and finally your medical team understands you!

I had a slightly similiar experience. My cycles were INSANE so there was no way of telling how pregnant I was by LMP. I of course knew because I was religiously OPKing and EWCM checking and BDing. SO, I knew I was about 8.5weeks during my 1st u/s. Of course they were like…”Nope you’re more like 6w based on LMP which is what we go by”. Of course when they show me baby and say “he’s only 6w!” I freeeeeakk out because I am 8+w. Well, luckily that u/s picture + bloodwork was enough for my OB to get confused and she sent me in for another at 9w…and low and behold….I am 9 w, like I told them 100 times. 

Now I am 31w exactly and he is measuring….31w exactly!

I always had irregular cycles before BCPs, so when I went off I started charting. I ended up getting pregnant on CD108 of my cycle. My doctors office (family practice) didn’t believe me when I said I was only around 4 weeks, but did the bloodwork and recommended a ob or midwife.

The practice I picked actually had me talk to a nurse, as when I told them the LMP, I would have been around 18 weeks. Once I talked to a nurse, she realized I was charting and wasn’t that far and took it all into account. If you have irregular cycles and are charting, make sure you find a doctor that is willing to listen. They waited until I would have been around 7-8 weeks based on my ovulation date to get me in for a ultrasound and I was measuring 1 day off that ovulation date. They never once questioned my charting or anything.

Now my family practice didn’t even want to think about the charting and just blew it off. When I went hunting for someone, I made sure that they were going to understand charting and not jump into conclusions that I’m 18 weeks along.
