Just found out! - Page 4

That's weird about the Equate test! When we ttc our 2nd, I used an Equate and it looked positive. I really can't remember how long after I peed on the stick that I looked, but it looked positive and I wasn't preggers. Maybe an evaporation line and maybe a false positive. The month that I was pregnant with ds I used en e.p.t. at 10dpo (light but positive), an Equate at 11dpo (negative) and another Equate at something like 14dpo and it was finally positive.

Now I'm 13dpo (cycle day 28, normally 26 days) and just waiting for a nice dark line I just wish I could have the old kind of e.p.t. I really do think these +/- tests are harder to read! Hmm... I was thinking of checking Family Dollar to see what tests they have. I've used a Dollar General $4 test and an e.p.t. with the +/-.

Me too! I want to claim the pregnancy (see, I've edited my siggie) and yet I want to obsess about it. I think mostly I'm stubborn because I just plain ol' don't like these +/- tests! :LOL

Congrats Ms. Michelle! Obsessing is kinda fun. I used Answer and got a pretty decent BFP line within something like 10 seconds. Talk about shocked, I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me! Then I did a and felt like . I couldn't think of a cool yet inexpensive way to tell DH so I just ended up getting him a totally not relevant to the sitution card and writing him a message at the bottom and showing him the test the next day. Quite a giddy, yet equally freaked young man I made him, yessirree...

Ok, so at the VERY start of this thread I said a congrats to Merrick and said we'd be trying in Sept (figuring it would take a few months....blah, blah, blah)

But, apparently I will be joining the ranks a bit early. I'm due May 9th. My dd is 7 mos old. Unfortunately I'm not nursing as we were unable (major breast surgery) My dd is a wild child, learning to walk, crawled out of her crib while I hosed out a diaper (we caught her that time) and then on the weekend I was feeding the dogs and put her in the pack and play--I'd only gotten to the second dog and I heard a thud, she'd crawled out, cried for about 30 seconds and then crawled off to get into more trouble.

My last pregnancy was horrible. I was sick and had a pic line placed until I think 28 weeks, then I had pre-e and Molly was taken by c-section at 37 weeks after a 10 day hospital stay.

I will be on heparin injections, progesterone suppositories and prednisone for this pregnancy as well. All through the last pregnancy I kept wondering why on earth anyone would do it more than once--as soon as I held her I could hardly remember how hard it was :LOL

While I'm due in May, I will most likely be delivered in April.

Congratulations Shannon! I hope your pg goes better this time. Sorry you had such a rough time of it before. I know what you mean about the pg amnesia though. I didn't have anywhere near as hard a time as you, but I was really sick from 9wks until halfway through the second trimester. I distinctly remember telling people it was the worst I'd ever felt and that I just wanted to die. But here I am again, happy as a clam! Talk to me again in a few weeks when the m/s hits! I'm hoping it won't be as bad this time. Maybe it won't be for you either.

Candace, I know, I remember, my hip kept dislocating and I hobbled into my OB's office (I have a FANTASTIC ob--without her, I just know Molly wouldn't be here) and she looked at me with a sympathetic look and I just said "Why in hell would anyone do this more than once????" She said "I'm not sure, I adopted my son" :LOL

Chiropractic, chiropractic, chiropractic!

I'm uninsured and I'll have to pay out of pocket, but I'll definitely be making sure I go in for an adjustment at least a couple times during the last trimester. I get that sciatic nerve thing going and an adjustment fixes me right up!
post #75 of 81
Yeah, I was being adjusted 3x a week, I have rheumatoid arthritis and my right hip is in pretty rough shape, when the hormones relaxed the joint it just sort of fell apart. Fortunately I found a way I could roll on it to get it sort of back in but it still hurt like hell when it happened

Hello to all!

Hello ladies!

I just got off the phone with the doc and my blood beta count showed positive (only 135 though). I am exited, but nervous. We lost our first son at 24 weeks due to a placental abrubtion and I am only 3 months past that loss. Anyways, I am looking forward to going through this journey with you lovely ladies. :

Hi Nydia, congratulations on your pregnancy. I am sending you many wishes for an uneventful pregnancy. I can't imagine what it must be like to stand where you are right now. Thanks for posting Mama and Welcome.
