Note: Went anonymous for this b/c people know me on here and IRL and DH and I don’t want people to know we’re TTC
So this is our first cycle trying, and my first time charting. Unfortunately, I started charting mid-cycle because that’s when we decided to start TTC.
If you want to follow along, here is my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/447e66
So I start charting on CD 16. Since I have longer cycles (anywhere from 33 to 50 days usually) I figured I might not have missed ovulation (if I was going to ovulate), but I knew nothing was certain.
On CD 30 I felt really weird and thought – well, my temp dipped so I must be starting AF soon. Then it went up slightly on CD 31 and again on CD 32, AND I felt nauseous and my boobs were sore, so I took an HPT (FRER). A second line came up really fast and is still there. I would attach a pic but it’s faint and I can’t get my phone to get a good pic. (sucky phone)
I was ecstatic! I figured I must have O’d prior to charting. I took another test the next day to be sure (this time DT), and there was a SUPER faint line. I wasn’t sure it had color to it, but it came up in the time limit. Same thing the next day. So of course I told DH, and my personal trainer (for safety reasons, etc.).
Unfortunately, I stopped taking my temp because I didn’t want to freak out about weird temps. But I scheduled an appointment for the following Monday (yesterday/June 3rd) for a checkup and a blood test.
Well – the blood test was negative. I don’t know if it was qualitative or quantitative, they just said “negative” and didn’t know when I asked which kind of blood test. I still haven’t started bleeding/AF. And I took another test yesterday and it was BFN. Same with FMU this morning. Still boob soreness off and on, and some quesy-ness, but nothing severe. Also VERY crampy.
But I still have the original tests – and they are so positive! At least, the FRER is a positive for sure, and the DT lines are still there!
To add to the confusion, I took temp yesterday AM (for Drs) and this AM (b/c I was afraid of chemical pregnancy/anovulatory cycle/I am crazy) and it’s WAY higher both days. Like temp shift after ovulation higher.
It’s frustrating b/c it sort of looks like I might have O’d in the CD32-CD38 range (which of course I wasn’t temping b/c I believed I was pregnant), but then what were those positives about on CD 32?
Any advice/insights ladies? I feel dumb and angry for believing those tests!
