I’m incognito right now.
Well, intuition led me to take a test last night and it was BFP! Needless to say, I’m still in absolute shock. Darling Husband and I just spoke weeks ago about putting TTC on the backburner until further notice. Also, my gynecologist gave me a new prescription for BC at my annual appointment but said I could continue taking my prenatals.
Just a little background:
-Started taking prenatals March/April
-I stopped taking BC on April 18th. Cycles were mainly normal. Began to chart and we were more careful during the fertile times in my cycle.
-Got my last period on June 30th
-Went to my OB/GYN on 7/14 for annual
-Left for vacation on 7/15. Forgot my prenatals and left my basal thermometer at the hotel we stayed at Fri night. :/
-Started new pack of BC on Sunday, 7/17
-July 27th- took test and it was positive
I can’t say what exactly led me to test last night. Maybe it was the random comment made by Darling Husband when I didn’t want rum in my piña colada a few nights ago, or perhaps it was just because I had one last test sitting in my bathroom that was calling my name. I felt different but certainly not pregnant. I attributed any symptoms to my new BC.
Now my concerns/questions:
-I have discontinued my BC. I had only taken 7 pills but I feel bad about it. Should I worry about this?
-I forgot my prenatals while on vacation last week, but otherwise, I have been taking them pretty religiously since I started. Should I be concerned that I didn’t take my vitamins for 9 days?
-How far along do you think I am? I guess we conceived this month. (Sorry for the stupid question!)
-Do I need to make a doctor’s appointment right away?
-Anything I need to be avoiding right off-the-bat? (caffeine, certain over the counter medicines, etc.)
-Anything else that needs to be brought to my attention at this point?
Thank you ladies for any advice!
