..we have miscalculated.
Apparently, I ovulated two weeks late!
The day I took my first test (weeks ago) I noticed egg white cervical mucus At the time I thought "mm thats weird..maybe just an early pregnancy sign". I was feeling a bit frisky (lol) the two days after that and again I just thought "yeah i kind of remember wanting to jump my hubby when I was pregnant..that has to be it". Clearly I didnt pay attention to the signs that were screaming OVULATION!
That next week every single pregnancy test i took was negative :( No matter how hard I squinted, hoped, prayed, or even how fast I broke that test apart to put it up the light...there was no line. not even the faintest. So i figured that it was over, and bleeding would start soon.
A week and a day later...no bleeding.
I went to my dr and had a blood test drawn on Monday. hcg was 5. I pretty much knew it was over at that point.
But the next day .my boobs felt sore, a very familiar sore. I shook it off and ignored it.
Next day. same thing.
then low and behold I pee on THREE different brands of pregnancy tests and every single one: POSITIVE
Peed on another this morning...POSITIVE and darker than yesterday.
Now im trying my best to stay in a sane mind frame I just spent the last week crying and accepting the fact that this was over. I called my midwife and spoke with her. She is the one who asked if maybe I just ovulated later . It was a very good possibility I asked her how I could have had a really faint positive test though around the time of ovulation. And wouldnt you know it! Us damn nursing moms put off Hcg levels! Pfft
So one of two things here: i am pregnant, or i am miscarrying
I go on Monday to my dr to get another HCG test. If my midwife and I's calcuations are right, then the 5 hcg test results would have been only a few days after implantation. So fingers crossed we have a higher hcg level.
Until then, Im going to keep taking a test every morning and keeping my fingers crossed. I hope to come back here with good news for you ladies.
This would be a thanksgiving miracle. It would give me even more to be thankful for next week
