Yeah, I'm in the worried camp now too.  I had a gush of bright red blood on Thursday night, after having had cramps for several hours.  I cramped all day yesterday, and had a persistent ache in my lower back on the left side.  I thought for sure I had a chemical pregnancy and was going to start bleeding at any second, since I was only 14 DPO.  But this morning, there are no cramps and I'm just spotting a bit of really dark brown.  I took another test, and it immediately came up blaringly positive.  I'm trying to convince myself that if I really was going to start my period, my HGC would already be dropping, even though with my blighted ovum I didn't miscarry until 10 weeks and had insane nausea and symptoms right up until the 9th week.  So I'm trying to be optimistic...

Diana, if your left-side pain gets worse, please consider an urgent care visit in case it's ectopic. That possiblility has always terrified me...

 

((hugs)) and stickiness to you

I was worried about that too.  But it was just a dull ache, and it has gone away.  I did some reading, and most ectopics aren't at risk of rupturing a tube before 7 or 8 weeks, and I go in for an ultrasound at 6w5d.  But the idea is definitely on the radar, and if I start having any sharp pains I'll definitely go get checked.

I'm still here and reading, but I've been trying to recover from a pretty nasty cold so I haven't been keeping up much.  

 

Sticky baby vibes to everyone here!  dust.gifsticky.gif

 

 

 

AFM- I'm still thinking twins are a possibility especially when I read you all talk about how very early symptoms are not that common.  I've been having symptoms since before my BFP and they have only increased so far.  My dads response when we told him about the pregnancy was "You'll probably have triplets because you never to anything part way".  I was shocked when we told my FIL and the first words out of his mouth were "maybe it's triplets!"  Um, what?  I think that might be a bit much for me, :lol

As I´m in the situation to have the chance for twins, too (grandmother had twins), I had to laugh out loud when I read about your nervous triplet-thinking-about... ROTFLMAO.gif

I don´t like to be pregnant (no, I´m NOT an Alien ;) ) - during my last pregnancy I had a hyperemesis and these 10months simply were horrible for me.

 

This time I´ve NO symptoms at all, yet (except of heavy headache a few days ago). Maybe there is a chance not to get sick this time??? Too early to think about it, ehm?

 

Last night I run to CVS to take another pg-test. I was SO nervous about my situation, because I don´t feel pregnant AT ALL! But  - of course - it was positive 2whistle.gif - I sometimes am soooo stupid... *lol*

 

Have a nice day everybody!

Another thing: Some of you are thinking about visiting the farm, right? Me too!!! I want to be inspired by the vibes over there winky.gif - my last labor-time and birth went soooo wrong and until today I don´t know what really happened then (the diagnosis was "unstabled position") and why I really had to have this C-section.

 

So, I´m going to visit the Farm in a few months, hoping to get all of this what I need to make an home birth possible.

My breasts haven't hurt or really gotten swollen at all. They are a little veiny and my areolae look bigger, but they don't hurt.

 

My main thing has been nausea and I have had diarrhea for awhile. It's really gross! I honest to goodness vomited once which is what inspired me to test (wasn't TTC at ALL!) If I drink ginger ale, the nausea seems to abate for awhile -- I think that's a placebo effect, though.  I did have some awful dizziness earlier in the week, but that hasn't come back, thank goodness!

 

I still can't believe I'm starting to grow a little person inside me! So crazy!

For some of us, very early symptoms are totally normal with singletons. I start getting mine about a week before my period is due, and this baby was no exception even though I didn't realize until two weeks later what was going on!

 

For exact timing, I have no clue with DS as I didn't BBT... DD1 was 5dpo, DD2 was 7dpo (and didn't even get a positive til 12dpo and a positive FRER until 15dpo! But not for lack of trying) this little one, after a lot of sitting and going over my calendar, I likely ovulated right on time despite breastfeeding, as we did not have sex at all between cd11 and cd21... but as of cd21 I already had the nausea that clued me in.

Awesome, just noticed the Mothering.com front page (not community front page, the actual mothering.com page) towards the bottom there's an article titled "Homeopathic Remedies for Cold and Flu" and the picture they used was my DD1!!!

Oh wow! Is it the girl in the snow? If yes, you can be proud on her - she is absolutely pretty! thumb.gif

I might be delivering at the Farm - my first visit is in Dec.  I'm looking forward to it.  I hope you have a great visit there!  Maybe we'll be there around the same time :)

post #74 of 260

I think I'm still in it to win it.  I keep having waves of dizziness, and Saturday morning I was really sick until I forced myself to eat something.  (Today I've felt fine so the doubts crept in a little).  But I hate to admit that my fuse has been shorter than usual, and I'm getting "stopped up", iykwim.  So I'm thinking those are pretty sure pg symptoms.  :)

 

I read about The Farm and wish I had a community like that near me!  Someday I will start one!!!

Of course, but since this is my first I don't have anything to compare it to. Since my mom is a twin so I have a a sliver of a statistical increase for twining, which makes it  fun to speculate.  I am also fairly positive that I felt implantation, not only felt it, it hit me like a mac truck. lol.gif  So I might just be sensitive to pregnancy hormones and/or this could just be "normal" for me.

I felt mine too with DD2 (never paid attention with the others, wasn't fully expecting to get pregnant) 

I wouldn't be surprised if you feel kicks early... I tend to. Just extra sensitive down there, I suppose.

 

I also have an increased risk of twins (fraternal twins on mothers side, all bio-related to the mothers... 3 different pairs that are known) 

post #77 of 260

Just got my bfp today at 11 dpo. joy.gif I've been pretty sure since 7dpo though when my nipples started hurting a ton. I am already feeling super nauseated so there's no way I wouldn't have guessed it even if I'd waited another few days to test. I am almost wondering if I may be a bit further along that I was thinking. We kind of decided to TTC really fast and I had not really been keeping very good track of my cycles, and we got pregnant the first month we were trying. I may request an early ultrasound for dating purposes.

 

 I am so excited! We went back and forth a long time about having a third baby and I am so glad we were both on the same page long enough to make one :) 

post #78 of 260

OK, so, funny little story.

I had no clue I was pregnant. We went out and got the tests yesterday, I had my husband check it after I took it and he got to announce to me that we were pregnant, cute and all yeah...

So while he was looking at it he sort of looked confused, after we got over the initial shock and yay and calling all the important people and telling them we aren't announcing it yet because we probably aren't that far along, he mentions he was confused because the lines seemed to be backwards from what's on the paper.

This didn't click in in my head until last night while laying in bed when I realized... there's no way I was only 4 weeks along, I was already feeling sick 2 weeks ago, before I would have even gotten pregnant. The ONLY possible explanation is that our CD 11 sex got us pregnant on something like a normal CD14  despite that I'm still breastfeeding and my periods had not yet gone back to normal.

 

But then... the test was faint! Well... one line was. That just didn't make sense that I would be 5 1/2 weeks with such a faint line.

Until I get on fertilityfriend.com and start looking at tests... and it turns out that the faint line is the CONTROL line. And it's only faint because the test line took up all the dye. So yeah... 

post #79 of 260

Interesting. My test did the same thing this time, and the control line eventually disappeared. Which I heard can be normal with the "equate" test I used. Never had that happen before, usually use Dollar Tree tests. But the test line was super dark, almost black it was so burgundy, first time for that too.

post #80 of 260

And here is my test this time vs my first (negative) FRER with DD2,

haha derp. I felt sorta silly for thinking it was a faint positive.
