I've been off the board since July when I found out that I had a blighted ovum. It took us a couple months to grieve and recover and starting to think about trying again. We're not 'trying' but not NOT trying either..you know that dance. I also have not been charting because I didn't want to obsess about things. Just wanted to have sex like a normal couple and if things synced up - well fabulous.
We're having a delayed honeymoon in January so we figured until then we could just have sex when we wanted without over-thinking. After that we'd actively try. However, since I'm 40 we were advised not to wait too long so we set the post honeymoon date to effectively try.
This cycle ( I think I O'd early?) when we were doing the horizontal mambo - and he pulled out. Afterwards I said babe, why did you do that? He didn't really have an answer but I think after all we went through maybe he's afraid of getting me pregnant again. ANYway...
I've had a few symptoms (my coffee has tasted funny/not great for last 4 mornings, had some nausea on what would have been 9 dpo-ish) but because I have no chart or temps to go by I really don't have concrete proof of when I ovulated. My best guess is 3 days post the pull-out bandit. I really think my chances of being pregnant are slim to none but it got me to wondering...if I'm where I think I am which is about 11 dpo - and we DID get preg this cycle, would it be a bad sign if I didn't get a bfp until late? In other words, does a late bfp always indicate poor implanting or impending doom of a miscarriage?
I took my first blue dye test by accident (thought it was a pink dye CVS test as it showed pink on the box, such sly marketing!) and it had a VERY faint second blue line within 3 minutes. But its very faint.
I went and bought an FRER pink dye test today and peed on it around noon and in my wildest imagination thought I saw a very faint line. But upon complete obliteration of the test to inspect more clearly - I realized I was seeing things. There was NADA.
So yeah...that's my story and wondering if anyone had at minimum - had a late bfp and went on to deliver happy healthy baby and also could that possibly even happen from him pulling out? The combo makes it seem unlikely.
