Primal, so sorry for your loss. I'm sure you're devastated. *hugs*

Valarie, gratz on your BFP!

Afm: 6 dpo today... Started symptom spotting. Dull mini cramps and pulling in my abdomen, headache for three days and I'm being a huge bitch... So who knows... Could just be PMS and my dairy sensitivity throwing my off. I test on Mother's Day (wouldn't that be something?!) so I'll continue to be totally paranoid and symptom spot like a hypochondriac until then. orngbiggrin.gif

I'd like to join this thread--I used to hang out in the TTC forum all the time while conceiving my daughter and now I'm back--month two of TTC #2.

 

Valarie--YAY! I'm so happy for you! Sending sticky vibes.

 

FawnandDoe--I took a test that looked like that this morning. There is a line but I am using cheapo internet tests and I'm pretty sure it's an evap--so faint I can't tell if there's color or not, and I got a similar result last month when I was not pregnant. However, with my daughter, my BFP was that faint (I had tested two days earlier, at 7 DPO, and got absolutely nothing). So it could mean something, or it could not--hang in there till you can get a more definite answer!

 

I also suffer from a lot of anxiety, and I'm curious--did your doctor tell you you had to go off your meds? I ask because my doctor assured me that she felt it was better to keep taking them through pregnancy rather than go off them and be extremely anxious the whole time, and i think that was the right decision for me. She said there is some evidence that some SSRIs are potentially harmful, but it's mostly Paxil, and mostly in the second trimester. In other words, at least if you're taking SSRIs, it might be worth it to continue on them, at least until you know for sure you're pregnant, and then make a decison about whether to discontinue. Sorry, that probably sounds presumptive, and I'm sure you've thought it through. But TTC is such an anxiety-producing process anyway...

 

PrimalLove--I'm so very sorry.

I also notice a lot of saliva, which makes me kind of nauseous.  I just think I'm pregnant, even though it's only 3 or 7 days after sex. Could be wrong, but it is a hunch.  Anyone else have a similar story?

There used to be "I think I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread around here somewhere. I lurked on it when I got pregnant with my daughter when my BF son was only 12 months old. Had barely gotten my period back, my cycles weren't at all regular, and I wasn't even sure I was fertile, but I saw some EWCM after we DTD one day and though ... Oops! Tested @9dpo and got a negative and then again at 14 dpo and got a positive. I don't remember having early symptoms except for increased appetite. Nom nom nom! I was super-happy to be pg again cause I wanted another, just nervous about having 2 under 2! It was rough for a while but it worked out. I wouldn't have it any other way now.

I don't know when I'll be back. My husband is already talking about trying again, but I am not feeling positive about this right now. I'm going to give it some time and see how I feel in a few months.

 

I'm so sorry for your loss, Primal.

Well my doctor kept me on Lexapro, she just took me off klonopin. But it's almost as if the Lexapro isn't helping all that much without the combo of klonopin. I actually just ran out, I was taking it as needed on days when I filled with copious amounts of anxiety, but now I'm out, and I was trying to take them sparingly because of TTC. I think about last time I was pregnant and I didn't find out until after my period was due and I was drinking and smoking up until my BFP, then I stopped everything. So I guess taking meds up until my BFP would be fine. Right now I am waiting until I get pregnant to see a maternal fetal medicine doctor. Unfortunately this time I will have to be in a hospital because I'm "high risk" and I will be on Texas medicaid for pregnant women, so I really won't have a choice. But I had cancer back in 2009 when I was pregnant with DS #1 (melanoma) and I had 2 surgeries to get rid of it (no radiation or chemo, I declined), and then I got a chronic pain disorder after. So I need to be watched for cancer and then I need the specialist OB in case my chronic pain disorder flares up. I'm sure he will know something about anxiety meds too. It just sucks that I have to wait until then, because right now I have no insurance :(

 

I took another test this morning. Neg. AF should supposedly be here tomorrow, but no sign of her yet. Maybe my cycle is longer than 33 days. Argh!

post #52 of 234

Todays test. I'm getting so frustrated. I feel like I'm imagining the faintest of lines when I invert the test. :( I just want a definitive answer or AF to come so I can start over with a new cycle, but it doesn't look like either of those are happening

Hello, I am just as confused as you!  I decided to use opks this month, just to see how things were going, considering my cycle has varied a lot in the past 4 months.  I started the opks early, and i got a definate positive on CD8!  Im very confused by this, everything that i have done on the internet, states that i wont ovulate until around the 14th!  I dont believe I would have gotten such a strong positive on CD8, if i wasnt going to ovulate until approx. 2 weeks later.  My cycles, and lp, was definately off!  That is...if these strips are accurate.  I have asked on here, but no one has given me any feedback!  Good luck to you hun!  If you find out anything, please let me know, thank you!

How many dpo are you?  I know exactly how frustrated you can be.  My cycle keeps changing every month, so I get excited when AF doesn't show, then she decides to make a late entrance.  Are your cycles the same every month?  Last month, I didn't get any bleeding until about 3 days after she should have been here,  Then, I only got spotting when I wiped, and about an hour of actual blood, not even enough for a tampon, sorry tmi!  So I bought opks for this month, after reading about cycle changing and the possibility of infertility.  So I started doing them early, and I had 2 lines everyday, and at calender day 8, I had a definite positive at noon, then that evening, around 8pm, I still have 2  visible lines, but not enough to be positive. This morning, I done one as well, a lot earlier, around 7am, 2 lines, but the test line was very very faint! I've never used the opks before, so I'm not sure how accurate they are, so I don't know what to think.  Also, I'm not really sure what to think of that semi-AF I had!  I posted a picture of my positive opk, it looks very positive to me, but as I said, I have no experience with them.  What do you think?  With that being said, I hope very much, that you get your BFP!!  If not a BFP, hopefully she will show up, and you can get started again!  I really hope for you that it isn't the second option!  FX for you!

I had written you a message earlier, but my phone was acting up, and would not quote, so it just showed up as a random message!  I am so sorry for your loss!  May God be watching over you at such a time of loss!  Prayers go out to you and your family, in this time of loss!  Good luck for your future ventures, whenever that may be!  Take all the time you need, I myself, know from experience, that this is a very trying time!  I hope and pray for only good things to come your way!

So ladies...as I'm sure you have seen, I tested positive on an opk on CD 8.  We DTD CD 4, CD 6, CD 7, CD 8, AND CD 9. Yesterday, CD 9, I felt icky all day. Just wanted to lay around, had stomach cramps, well...not really cramps, i don't guess, it was more like a dull continuous aching in my abdomen.  So, my question is, do you believe that the opk was correct, and I actually ovulated this early? If so...Should I start to count DPO as of today? Please help, I am so confused by this cycle change.  Any information you can give me is desperately needed!  I really appreciate it, ahead of time!   FX to all still in the running!

 

Valerie:  Congrats!!  GREAT BFP!!

Cressy, I think you can ovulate early or late, CD14 is just an average, so it possible that CD8 is correct. I thi k the only real way to tell is the temp shift straight after, did you get an increase? Did you get EWCM that dried up afterwards? Those are the usual signs. If not, might be worth continuing you BD until you are sure it has past and you have had the clear temp shift.

Good luck. Relax and go with it!

Primaljoy - hugs and much healing love to you and dh... As Oxford and mama blue have said, we'll be here whenever you are ready.

ValerieR - congrats! Fx for you on a sticky bun mama!

Re the opk's (I know several of you have asked) some people have a higher natural level of the hormone than others - so get two lines got longer... The test really isn't positive until the test line is as dark or darker than the control... So it is really easy to get confused. To be really accurate some ladies use the cheapies for a week and throw in a clear blue opk when the cheapies are looking positive. Some people never get the 'perfect' line on the opk but do ovulate... Also you are taking them late morning? Fmu is too early for opk. For me (even though I've had a true positive) opk's are a guide to when you should be bd, the only true way to confirm o is with temping. Bbthermometers are not very expensive and if you are unsure re o I would definitely invest in one, and use with ff. it is often too hard for us to help pinpoint o without the temping data.

Naturallymo - welcome, lovely to meet you - I love the warm and caring vibe you are putting out there 😄

Oxford, how's things?😄

Serynyd - hugs mama, hoping that you are working through the pain, and fx on this month.

I don't temp. After this month, I will for sure. I definitely had a positive on cd8. The thing with checking my cervix is that, it never changes position. Even during menstruation. It's always pretty high, semi-soft, and it does open a little at times, but usually closed. I checked it everyday for a month, and it was always the same. Yesterday, cd9, I had an achy feeling in my lower abdomen and today I have been feeling fine up until about 15 minutes ago, the achy feeling came back.

13 DPO and BFN today.  Sigh.  I felt so sure about it this month.  But, my cycles are completely wacky.  I've always had irregular cycles, but they are really bad lately.  I've only O'd twice this year.  I've had super long cycles.  Not sure what is messing me up.  I might try some Vitex to see if that helps my situation.
