Going anonymous for this.
I really need some help or guidance or clarity. I put this on the Preg boards and tried to edit some parts but it got marked as spam and I don’t know why. Really need an ear and if this isn’t the right board…can admin move it to Preg board please?
My partner and I have not been actively trying to get pregnant but we haven’t been using protection. We love each other and we just have a “what will be will be attitude” towards pregnancy at this moment. We’ve been together for a 1.5 years and never had any issues with our method. He has ejaculated inside of me about four times over our 1.5 years together but always during “safe times”.
Here is where I need some feedback.
My period tends to come like clockwork…every 27 days since I can remember. It came a few days early about twice in my whole life….years ago.
My last period was 10 May. We had a lot of sex that month. Pulled out mostly but he ejaculated in me a couple times.
My next period was due on 6 June. I started getting the usual cramps a week early and they were more frequent and intense than usual. I also had some slight spotting (only when I wiped though) about three or four times. I also had a bit of nausea. When the spotting did not turn into a period on 6 June I got worried….so yesterday….my period was one day late. I decided to pick up a preg test on the way home from work. The pharmacy only had FRER so I got that. My thinking what that since it’s one day after period is due…it would def be able to pick up any pregnancy tho my period was only day late since that brand can detect a preg days before period is even missed.
I came home and did the test. Waited the 3 mins. Checked it …and holy shit! I saw two lines …pregnant! I didn’t even have to squint as the line for pregnancy was very heavy and apparent. I was in disbelief. First pregnancy ever!
My partner and I were stunned and shocked and teary eyed…but also scared. We instantly went into planning mode and decided we would go to the gyno next Monday. I also put my last period date into a calculator online which said I am 4 weeks preg…and the size of a poppy seed.
This morning I woke up with some cramps…I went to urinate and I saw some light pink spotting (no clots) after I wiped. I got scared and decided to go to the doc. I had all kinds of thoughts re miscarriage and so on. I’ve never been preg before and have never associated blood with pregnancy and so on.
This is what happened at the doc:
He gave me a trans vaginal ultrasound. He found no sac. He commented that my uterine lining is thick.
He made me take a preg test (urine) and it came back negative.
He told me to come back in 2 weeks for another test / ultrasound.
I just nodded and fought back tears. I didn’t ask a lot of questions and he didn’t explain much to me. Just told me come back in the 2 weeks.
I am just so confused and bummed Though it wasn’t planned, we were so happy at the thought of being parents.
Does this mean my FRER was a false positive? The preg line was soooo vibrant and bold. I don’t get it.
Shouldn’t the tests at the doc’s office be even more advanced than FRER?
Are sacs usually seen at 4 weeks trans vaginal ultrasound?
Is the uterine lining supposed to be thick during preg?
Did I miscarry? 🙁
Could I still be pregnant?
Please help me to understand.
Just had some more pink show up on tissue after I urinated prior to starting the thread.
Please help, Bees.
