** TTC 6+ Months ~ JUNE & JULY! ** - Page 6

post #101 of 355
ok, here's the deal. We're all heading to the Feb/March DDC, so if we could all please line up in an orderly fashion and head for the door that would be great. don't panic!!! Lauren, Mae, Shabbers, you go first, we'll be right behind you!

lisko, I LOVE my Germany trip timing. I will either be pregnant : or a few days into my period and able to go out to clubs and drink it up on good old richtige Deutsche beer! And maybe by the end be ready to ovulate. Either way, it's good. Although y'all know which I'd prefer: puking in the airplane bathroom from my m/s and doing this : toward my belly.

Lauren, DH's family lives in Thuringia, halfway between Berlin and Frankfurt. I guess that's a few hours away by car from where you'll be...depending on how fast you go.

Today I was scheduled for my lap and chromotubation, in which he was going to flush out my tubes with dye.

Due to some complications, I wasn't able to have the surgery.


This is what happened:
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c2...dICPositiv.jpg
(It's actually 15DPO, but I was too flustered to get the DPO right)


I had taken a very stark white, not even a slight hint of a line test at 10DPO, so I decided not to continue testing, because I could no longer bear the negatives. The next day was Friday, 11DPO, and I had to go for bloodwork as part of the pre-op work-up. Apparently, my hcg was 24 on Friday. My doctor was out of town until today, so he didn't see the results until just before the surgery.

So when I get there this morning, do you think anyone mentions that little tidbit? Nope. The nurse proceeds along with her questions, another nurse puts an IV line in, and finally she says to me, is there any possibility you might be pregnant? I said my period is due today, and I had a blood test on Friday. She said, "hmmm...your level was 24," but there can be some situations in which there are false positives. Um...HUH??? So then she says, I need to have you take a urine test, but she never gave me the results of that. Why would a false positive blood test even be her first thought??? Right after this, they take my blood pressure, which is usually 116/63. After they told me my hcg was 24, my blood pressure was 140/94. I was way stressed out about what was going on. Meanwhile, I'm talking to DH on the phone, updating him on the saga...

Anyway, she decides to get the doctor, and he comes in and immediately says "did they tell you?" I said, "tell me what?," because both me and and my friend weren't really sure what the hell they were telling me. He said, "you're pregnant, so obviously we won't be proceeding with the surgery today." We went back and forth for a bit, but he said he's absolutely sure, that the level was quite low, but he agreed that it would correspond with where I said I was at in my cycle on Friday. He assured me that the blood test is not mistaken, it's quite accurate. And no matter, he will not jeopardize my pregnancy in any way. At this point, the nurse still seems confused about why we're not proceeding with the surgery (this girl was not the brightest bulb, there were other issues with her, too. She did not instill one ounce of confidence in me or my friend). I was adamant that they draw some blood and get another beta, because I really wanted to know what was going on. They drew it, said I'd have the results in an hour, and said I could go home. I called DH to tell him there was no mistake, the doctor is sure I'm pregnant, and that I'll be getting more results in an hour.

The incompetent nurse M was however, kind enough to call me back this morning, and told me that this morning's beta came back at 169. So, I really am pregnant.

I'm just so stunned. I've never been as stunned as I was today. I really had no idea. I just walk around saying, "holy S***," and "I don't know how this happened," and "I don't understand." I'm completely in shock over the whole thing. It took us 14 cycles of active trying, with poor S/A results.

Regardless though of how it all transpired, and no matter what anyone else says or thinks, I'm absolutely sure I got the miracle I prayed for.

Mrs. Lurker-- WOW!! Crazy!!! :: I am so excited for you!!!

When it rains it pours!!!! ::: for all of you newly pregnant mamas!! This is so exciting! : for answered prayers!

AFM: 8-9 dpo, still not feeling too crazy, so . I went on a bike ride tonight, 20 miles, good for clearing my head. DH just went out to go get me some Milk Duds (while getting himself candy and rice krispies, his two necessities ). Life is pretty good. Plus, all the vicarious happiness here!

I've been lurking and am amazed at all of the BFPs!!! Mae, that is amazing if that is a BFP (and it looks like it might be) I told you, meant to be

I found out this morning that we have to cut our vacation short by a day. I am trying to contain my dissappointment because it is for DF's work. I feel like a brat. I WILL give me more time for wedding planning though. Well, off to enjoy some coffee out on the deck with my sweetie

I have been enjoying keeping up with all of you, entertaining beach reading.

: So crazy to see all the BFPs! :

I guess we are making up for the lack of them in April! I'm so excited for all of you...

Maeryn - I hope that BFP grows bright and bold! That is so amazing if you do end up PG. It will help you throughout the year DF is gone... having a little bit of him really with you.

Shabbers - Congrats! I hope that DH takes the news okay. And as for all your uncertainties (I saw your other post)... once you hold that baby, despite sometimes being exhausted and tired (parenthood is HARD)... personally, I don't think you will ever, ever think that it was the wrong decision.

Mrs_Lurker - That is the BEST story I've read on MDC in awhile. I think you should definitely post it somewhere. I'm so very, very, very happy for you. Its amazing that DH had one strong little guy that did "the job". I hope that Court lurks over to read it... she's dealing with a similar poor SA result and it would really, really encourage her. Congrats, congrats to you!

Sticky beans to ALL! Let me know if you want me to change you to BFPs on the first page.

beckyh516 - Chocolate, rum and a hug from DH... a perfect mix to help with AF's arrival. I hope you get some answers at the doctor appt.

Danielle - Each new cycle is hard. I hope you don't have to move onto #9.

Tear - I wish you are puking in the airplane bathroom! (Who would really wish for that but a long-time TTC-er? )

Jill - Funny we are cycle buddies again! I'm glad you aren't feeling PMS-y or too crazy yet!

I, however, AM. I'm getting that telltale irritated feeling with DH when he can't read my mind. And my BBs hurt. Granted, they might if I was PG... but I just can't think about it too much. I checked previous "calendar" entries and I have BBs hurting/sensitive and irritability ALWAYS 2-4 days before AFs arrival.

So... I'm thinking I'll be sticking around here until August - as conceiving in June will be very unlikely with our camping trip. Feeling pretty and : about heading into August '09.

<sigh>

but then you can do a super cute "guess what? I'm pregnant!" for DH...

get a plastic easter egg, put something in it to clue him in... then either hide it and make him find it.... or toss it to him and be like "Yeah... that's not the only egg you caught"

cuz easter babies are awesome.

Tear I really hope you are puking on the plane too! It's crazy huh, you are willing to go to a country that makes the most amazing Beer in the world and not drink it just to get pregnant. I never thought I would be that person, either, but it's amazing what mommyhood does to you!

Yay Mrs Lurker! CONGRATS!! That's quite the story. So awesome.

I hope we're next! We seem to be on a roll, don't we?? Come on baby dust!! I ordered some opk's and preg. tests from babyhopes.com and they send you a packet of "baby dust". Awesome. Lets hope it works

So I found out today that my hairdresser is expecting. It sure does seem that when you're trying, everyone else around you gets pregnant but you.
Along with my hairdresser, also pregnant are My best friend, chiropractor's wife, friend of a friend, and also a good friend of ours was pregnant but had a mc.

Come on ladies... we can do it!

OK, scratch that, now I'm crabby . At least I have a busy few days to keep my mind off the never-ending battle of AF vs. PG: working now (as you can see I'm working hard ), then bringing a meal to a new mama friend, then playing Bunco; tomorrow, getting certified in neonatal resuscitation; Sat. kids have thier first T-ball game; Sun. nephew's birthday party. Whew, I'm exhausted already!

Hi everyone...

Maeryn - I really don't think I'll get to surprise DH next month... it depends when AF arrives in the new few days. When are you going to pee on another stick for all of us?

Shabbers - How you doing lady? Tried to see your temp for today, but it wasn't up yet.

beckyh516 - It so seems like EVERYONE gets PG when you are trying. There have been so many people get PG (and some have had their babies already) since I've been trying. It can really get you down if you let it. Pretty funny coincidence... my hairdresser (who is also a good friend) is PG (due in October) as well!

jillc512 - Sorry you are feeling the grumpiness settle in. No fun at all. I feel just icky today... just waiting for AF to arrive. Slightly crampy and achy - and I so don't want to be at work - which is only making me grumpier. : I'm really having a pity party for myself today.

But I've had it with all this extra weight. I AM GOING TO EXERCISE AND DIET... starting this morning (I got up a half hour early to do my Pilates). I've easily put on almost 20, but at least 15 pounds since starting TTC last August. It's just gross and I really can't continue to gain like that. So many of my clothes don't fit. Since AF is likely to arrive, and conception in late June/early July is unlikely to happen... I have a good 1 1/2 months to get cracking.

I hope I can stick with it.

Lauren & Tear - HI and HUGS to you both!

I only have digitals. If I go to town I'll buy more.

If you know you are, that takes away the majority of the risk because now you can take all the precautions to avoid any problems (but hey if your dh is rh negative too... there's no problem!)
