Hey mamas, I can't see myself on the list this month but I did check -in briefly at the beginning. A lot has happened for me since!
This is my thrid cycle and I have been taking vitex and B6 for a really short LP the last two cycles ( only 5 days!) So, I get to this 3rd cycle and get a positive opk on CD 17 & 18 ( and BD on those days)then a temp shift on CD2. My temps stayed high all that week but I also started with a sore throat.
By CD27, 8DPO my sore throat turned into a very bad cold/flu. I was going hot and cold and had very bad sinusitis pain, headaches, migraines - just felt awful so I started lots of natural remedies. DD also decided to increase the nursing at night since she is teething. My temps were higher than i have ever seen them ( though I don't think enough to class as a fever).
On 11DPO, I still felt ill and had some very light spotting, just a few marks in my underwear ( sorry if TMI, LOL) one time and that was it. It didn't seem at all like AF but then again I was ill. I thought it might be implantation bleeding and tested. I got a very, very faint line but at 10minutes and the tests I am using have a cut off time of 5minutes. So I called it a BFN. I still felt really sick and went to the doctors and she gave me some antibiotics and decongestant because she said I had a very bad sinus infection ( I know, I know,I rarely take them but I'm feeling so ill). I tested again on 13DPO and , I got a very faint line again but RIGHT ON the 5 minute mark. I tested yesterday and the same faint line but at 4 minutes. Today , 15DPO I tested FMU with FRER and got ( I think) a BFP.
BUT, I am so nervous, I mean, I'm ill right? I'm taking antibiotics and decongestants, I still have really bad sinus pain. Is this a BFP or is it because I am sick? Should I stop the medications? Can meds/illness effect the test? Do you think this is a genuine positive?
The faintness of the line this late worries me. I had a very strong line with DD at 12DPO. The last time I had a faint line like this at 14DPO I m/c at 13 weeks., but I'm nursing now so that's maybe why right? I'm just so wary of being excited this early?
I haven't even told DH yet as he has been really stressed at work and was starting to have second thoughts about ttc - this will stress him out even further ...ugh, my stomach is flipping....
