LMAO! Our stories have some real similarities.

I tested negative for an ovarian tumour a few weeks before becoming pregnant.

I also tested negative on a whole bunch of pregnancy tests, even after my period was late.

… and I also joke that I have a parasite, much to the disgust of some of my co-workers!

Congrats!

Congratulations! I tested at CD 86 and it was negative. I had to get tested for hyperthyroidism and thats how I found out I was pregnant. By that time I was already 8 weeks pregnant.

I thought I had depression.

I had gained like 15 pounds in the last few months. So when I was super tired, crying all day for dumb reasons (I’m not a crier), and I just kept eating, I said I have to be depressed. I had spotting instead of period, which was very normal for me. The following month I had my “period” for two whole weeks. Again, thought the weight gain was messing with it.  I had been trying to hide it from my husband, but he began to notice. I started getting a little nauseous here and there and not sleeping well. My husband asked me, “Are you okay?” I said, “Yeah. You know I just got fat and my body is screaming for help.” Finally on a Saturday night I said, “Babe, I need counseling (I was on the verge of tears). I need to go talk to the priest or find a counselor because this isn’t normal anymore.” 

following day we went to mass and I was bawling again. Afterwards we went grocery shopping and I bought all these fruits and veggies to start juicing. My husband told me to get a pregnancy test so that if I was pregnant I wouldn’t starve our baby. We were already in line and tried telling him it couldn’t be that. (I track very well) he said just get one. Fine. I run and get one. When we get home, I take the test and wait for it to be negative. We have been having unprotected sex for 10 years and we had a miscarriage very early on, but besides that, they were all false. We thought we were going to have a hard time concieving when we finally decided to. And up pops the second line! I got lightheaded and almost passed out. 

My husband said, “I knew you were I just didn’t tell you because I didn’t want you to get your hopes up.” I went to the doctor the following day and I was 7 weeks. I have a very irregular period and turns out I ovulated one day after my period and that’s when we conceived.

littlechickie:  Thank you. Yes, it makes us laugh now. Looking back all the symptoms made sense, but I kept looking at my tracking calendar and saying, NOPE! can’t be that.

First I thought I had a sinus infection (that “cold” people talk about getting around implantation, it was true for me) then I thought I had the stomach flu (ended up being morning sickness) that wasn’t getting better. My period was over a week late but I didn’t think anything of it because the cycle before was a weird one and then with me being “sick” I thought it threw it off. I actually made a post on Weddingbee asking about lingering stomach flu symptoms and a bee asked if I could be pregnant. 

 

We went out and bought a test and it was BLARING positive. I can’t believe I was so oblivious. We had been NPNT for about 6 months.

My breasts were really tender and getting larger. They aren’t normally tender around my period so this was unusual for me. I tested and it came back stronger than the control line which was weird because I was a week out from my period. Turns out we were 7 weeks not 3 weeks at that stage.

I missed my period.  I was pretty shocked because we used protection that month. Find out a few months later that I actually got pregnant the month before (one time, no protection) but my implantation bleeding was very heavy (along with cramps) so I assumed it was my period.  Had my annual pap the next week. Guess it was too early at that point for them to tell with my physical. Went in for my NT scan and she said she couldn’t do it because I was 16 weeks instead of 12.  So i found out i was pregnant at 8weeks and not 4-5. Now I believe people that don’t find out they’re pregnant right away!! I had a few random symptoms before I found out but they were only 1 or 2 days so nothing consistent enough for me to question anything.
