- Wedding: December 2015
I tested this morning and I think I see the smallest hint of a line, but then maybe I’m crazy. This is the first time I’ve ever felt the urge to squint at a stick – the rest have been obvious negatives. This is 12 DPO. Am I crazy?
So with my MMC, I got what i thought was my period on CD27, so I didn’t bother to take a test. I wasn’t tracking ovulation. But then about 10 days later, I started bleeding again, and after a bunch testing, it turned out that there was an empty sac implanted, and I had to have a D&C. So, my hypothesis is that I ovulated late and implanted after I got my period (??) so there wasn’t enough hormones, nutrients, etc in the uterine lining, so the embryo couldn’t develop. I realize that sounds slightly crazy, but the fact that I’ve had 10-11 day LPs for the past two months is what brought me to this hypothesis. So yesterday, I started my period at 11dpo (so annoying), but it was pretty light. It started getting heavier today, but I had felt cramping that could have been implantation for a few days now, so I’m worried that this same late-implantation-after-my-period could be happening again because 1. My temperature went up again today, and 2. My boobs still hurt. So, as crazy as this might sound, I might take a preganancy test tomorrow or the next day even though I think I’m on CD2 (day 2 of period). This whole thing is clearly making me insane. 🙂
NEVERMIND just got AF. I think that test was faulty – it looked a little raised on the edge. Anyway, on to September! Good luck for everyone still in it this month!!!
I was so shocked at the faint second pink line I nearly fell over. After I told Darling Husband we couldn’t believe it, we drove to the store so fast and went and got another different type of test. There were 2 in the packet and the first one came back invalid, what are the chances! I had to put in all the effort to get enough pee again to do the 2nd- sorry if Too Much Information. That came back a clear positive!
We were so excited and that weekend was amazing. We told both sets of parents on the Sunday because we couldn’t keep it in, even though I was only 4 weeks plus 4.
Sunday night I started spotting. I tried not to get too worried, spotting was normal, and Monday morning I was feeling quite positive but it got a little heavier, still spotting but more than a few dots. Darling Husband convinced me to leave work early and we got an emergency appointment with the doctor. He was clueless really, but he phoned the Early Pregnancy Unit and got their number to call if it got heavier. On Tuesday it was a bit heavier but not too bad when I called them in the morning. By lunch time it had gotten to a ‘light period’ level. My husband came to meet me and I cried in his car, I called my mom and she came to my work to get me as Darling Husband had to go back to work. Wednesday bleeding was heavy with clots- I stayed off work at home crying, I also cried in front of my boss but I just told him it’s a ‘women’s health issue’ as I didn’t want to go into details. Anyway on Thursday I went to work and Friday to yesterday was our once in a lifetime trip to NYC and I’m feeling much better. The bleeding lasted til Monday and I just did a test to make sure and it’s white as snow.
So basically I had a chemical pregnancy. I know that it was an early loss but I’m still pretty devastated. I also just did an OPK and there’s a faint line so I can get back on the TTC wagon soon. Might join September POAS board, on cycle 9 of trying.
Sorry if this wasn’t the place to post this but I got a lot of support from these boards before I kind of gave up after 6/7 or so cycles and I’m missing that a bit especially as the only people who know are my husband or parents. I might tell my friend who is also TTC but not sure yet.
