I have an IUD. I couldn't feel the string anymore. My DH hasn't felt it for a few weeks. I went in to the GYN, feeling foolish, and asked her to check. She couldn't feel it. She couldn't see it. The ultrasound showed it to be missing. My uterus showed no signs of pregnancy and I had a big black spot in my ovary that the u/s tech assumed was meaning I was ready to ovulate. I was scheduled for an abdominal X-ray to see if it had moved into my abdomen. My friend suggested that I take a pg test before I do the X-ray, just in case. BFP. Called my GYN. She orders a stat HCG test. 118. Very early. Too early to show on an u/s.
This all happened yesterday.
I was doing the responsible thing by having an IUD. I already have 4 children.
My dh is mad. Not at me, but at the situation.
So, I'm in the 4-week range, which puts me at Nov 30-Dec 1st ish. I will be early, so if this pregnancy sticks, I will stay in the Nov DDC.
It's not that I'm not happy, I'm shocked and nervous, and wondering what is going to happen. My family will not be pleased. I am not looking forward to telling them. I'm a grown woman, for goodness sake, and I'm scared to tell my parents! AAAAHHHHH! Freaking out here...
BTW, congrats to all of you - I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful brat.
