The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread - Page 84

post #1661 of 1838
Well, a CBE digital HPT confirmed I am pregnant. I guess the OPK didn't lie.

Off to join my DDC! Hope the rest of you ladies get the answers you were looking for.

Lurking around here... having a few preg symptoms but again... probably in my head. LMP started august 10th or 11th. Just looked at the calendar again... for some reason had it in my head that it was the 9th . Anyhow, it's been about the normal 28 day cycle for me... with no hint of AF. I usually have cramps beforehand. And i've been paranoid ever since I had the IUD removed on day 2 of my last period. We tried using condoms but it just wasn't happening for him since he couldn't stay hard with them on. We decided to try pulling out for the a few weeks since he was deploying soon anyway (he has since left for deployment). He pulled out in time every time but one time only barely pulled out... and that was a little too close for comfort for me. Just before he left we tried an erection ring with the condom with success but by then it was too late if anything did happen. So of course now i'm thinking and feeling things. I'm probably not preg but yeah.

Haven't gotten a period after my m/c. Thought I would get it yesterday or today based on temping/cervix, but haven't. Been getting mild cramping for three days, which usually indicates AF coming the next day for me, but now I'm thinking it might be pregnancy related. This isn't happy for me. I'm convinced I'll just miscarry again. Abstained 5 days before supposed ovulation, but my 2nd miscarriage (I've had 3), I conceived after 6 days of abstaining. So yeah...just waiting...feeling so depressed. I don't want to test. I don't want to know unless it's viable after at least 3 months.

Hey, Can I join you ladies?
I had a few days of being really emotional and failing to remember to use b/c during a really long cycle & of course those days ended up being right before I did finally O... We wouldto have another baby but, I'm not in the greatest health due to Candida, heavy metals and really bad allergies etc that seemed to be brought on by replacing my mercury fillings... So I was planning on doing some metal cleansing (which I did for about 3 weeks and then stopped when I realized I o'd and therefore there is a chance I might get/be pregnant....), do a family/pet parasite cleanse and then me and my hubby doing a full body cleanse and also doing a yeast free/gluten free diet throughout all the other stuff before we started trying...

I'm at 9dpo ( I think... Here is my chart) I''ve had a lot of nauseousness and hot flashes followed by being chilled and just feeling off which is what I felt like w/ my last baby which prompted me to do a test at 10dpo which was positive... But it also could just be die-off from the candida diet or side effect of the Vitex in the Estrosmart I'm taking for pelvic pain... So here I am worried that I'm might be pregnant which I really want on one hand but on the other don't think I can handle feeling any worse and I tend to get bad m/s for the first 3 months... I'd test but I just ordered 20 test and they haven't arrived yet... so I don't want to spend anymore money buying more...

Chiming in here....

Our protection failed a few weeks ago, broke (can't stand condoms!).

I don't know if it is in my head or what. Have had a lot of outside family stress, I don't have an appetite lately. My milk has been there, however, my breasts are not as full as they have been. My moon has not come back yet but my MW says with the back and pelvic pain I have had lately, maybe it is on it's way back.

Buying a test tonight.... we shall see!
post #1666 of 1838
Our test was negative this morning and we are really happy about that!

Hi all. Mind if I join you? I don't actually really think I am pregnant but there's a little question mark in my head (see my thread started yesterday for details) so I'll be waiting it out for the next week to see if/ when my period comes. The jist of it is that I have 1 symptom that I seem to only have when I'm pregnant (back pain in this particular location in my upper back) and when I went to reassure myself by checking my IUD strings I couldn't find them. But, my cervix is pretty low right now and I've never tried checking with it so low, so I'm hypothesizing that the strings are just out of reach at the moment. Anyone have any experience to reassure me on that? I can't find anything on a google search talking about strings being easier to find at certain times of the month.

The other thing I've noticed in the past few days is that DD (who is still nursing) has had a slightly different smell to her. I notice it when I'm nursing her and last night I started to wonder if it could be actually my milk that has a different smell to it. I noticed the smell thing before I notice anything else so maybe it's totally unrelated. Probably.

Hmm... well it's been 4 or 5 days since my period was supposed to start. Used up all my internet tests... but i'm doubting the accuracy of those this early. Might as well go dish out the big bucks for a "first response" and find out once and for all, lol. If it's negative... either i'm one of the 5% that don't test positive with those, or i'm not pregnant, lol.
post #1670 of 1838
Negative again... must be one of those long funky postpartum cycles or something then.
post #1671 of 1838
Yes "I might be....and I WASN'T trying" Oye!
So, short story long ()...Baby is 11mo, BFing and no PPAF, so, not sure of anything really. buuuuuut... symptoms are here! Waves of nausea/wooziness, extreme and sudden hunger (even in the middle of the night, ohnoes!), my lactating breasts seem to be getting bigger (Yikes), and somewhat sensitive. Lots of messy unclassified CM (not ewcm, not creamy, not sticky, just kind of gloppy, and wet...make sense?), & crampy! oh boy, so crampy...
ALthough I am eating a ton of pretty healthy (most of the time) food, and taking a prenatal, etc., (bases covered) I am not going to poas because then I would know for sure and then I would have to face that ...
I have mixed feelings about this as I thought I was done. I would totally embrace it, but hubby might be a little slower. I know he would come around. However, I think I will just stay in denial until there is no staying in denial. heh, heh.


anyway, just wanted to pop in and obsess with you all. Relieved to not be on this boat alone.

By the way, has anyone ever gotten symptoms like this just because PPAF is coming back? Like crazy hormones and such and not pregnant hormones? I remember when DD1 was born I had crazy hormones when PPAF was coming back.
post #1672 of 1838
Oh geez, I'm here too. I just have to talk about it somewhere, I'm going crazy!! AF is a week late, nauseated, a few cramps, stupidly exhausted (I went to bed at 8 yesterday and I'm normally a night owl). I absolutely do not want to be pregnant. My divorce was finalized two days ago, I just cannot do this right now. I'm freaking out a little bit more every day af doesn't show. Though I think at this point with my symptoms there really isn't question, I just don't want to give up hope that there's still a chance I'm not! For some reason my body does not agree with pregnancy tests. I can take them all day long and they come back negative even when I'm very much pregnant. So its waiting... which seems like forever every day. I've been trying not to think about it but I think I've just opened the flood gates a day or two ago and now its all that's on my mind!

Anyway, good luck to all. Hope its the outcome you're wanting!

I've read that drinking parsley tea can help bring on your period if it is indeed just late. Has anyone tried this with any success?
post #1673 of 1838
Im so glad I found this thread... here is what has been happening to me since the beginning of the month... I just copied and pasted everything over from another site I use.... (sorry its so long).


My periods have always been heavy and thicker and dark red for the first few days and then taper off lighter, and then spot the last day and stop... they normally last around 5-7 days. I had my first pp period last month (thanks to my BC pills I had just started), and that one was normal (just tons more painful cramping)... well this month my period started and it was just light pink spotting at night with bad cramps- light bleeding the next day ( it was bright red, super watery with only a few small clots), spotting bright red extremely watery blood the next day and then brownish pink extra watery yesterday....

??????????? That is the first time my period has EVER been that way in the history of me having my period (I have had it since I was 13 and I am 21).... is that even normal? Should I mention it to my OB when I go to get my next 3 month supply of BC pills next week? I am so confused. I'm freaking out that something is wrong lol.

Update from 4 days ago:
Im still extra exhausted, I have been going to bed all week at 8:30-9 (which is early for me) and sleeping 12 hours and still waking up exhausted like I didnt sleep all night. I have been taking naps every day at least once a day when my girls go down for a nap.... I also noticed I have (sorry if tmi) a lot more milky white creamy discharge ( I have only noticed that when Im about to O or when Im pregnant), today I was mopping the floors and the smell of the cleaning stuff I was using grossed me out so bad I complained the entire time that it was too strong and it smelled gross and my SO told me he couldnt smell a thing (he was laying on the couch and I was mopping right next to him)... and for dinner my MIL made chili and I asked her if she used any different spices because it tasted more peppery and she told me she put a DROP of cyan pepper in it and the taste was SOOOOOOOOOO overpowering.... I couldnt finish my chili... I was the ONLY person that tasted the damn pepper in it! And 4 of us ate the damn thing! Im freaking myself out even more now. lol My MIL kept telling me how weird it was that I was the only person to have noticed the pepper.... I have been cramping too down low.... ugh.

Update from Today:
New symptoms... Along with my heightened sense of smell and taste and my increase in creamy white cm, and my light on again off again cramping and my odd "period", I now have been peeing slightly more than usual (not drinking more than usual and no burning or stinging when I pee - so NOT a UTI), and my other symptom is a dull achey heavy feeling in my uterus area (down near and behind my pubic bone)... I am not sure if I should count this as a symptom or not but I also got into a coughing fit from laughing so much and so hard (my SO tickled me really bad lol) and I almost threw up from coughing (multiple times). If I go off of my last normal period then I would be 5 weeks and 5 days pregnant and due May 16th-ish... I have an appointment monday afternoon to get more bc pills, they do routine pregnancy tests (hpts) and if it comes out negative I am going to explain what happened to me with my chemical pregnancy and ask for a blood test. Im trying not to think about it but with the dull heavy achey feeling I have had all day, its kind of hard to ignore... Im nervous.

I went in and got completely ignored (I thought it might happen)... the nurse I saw told me there was no such thing as a chemical pregnancy it was just my body tricking me... (I wanted to punch her in the face).... also she told me that they will only test me if I miss more than two periods in a row (God I HATE the health department!!!!!).... she basically shoved bc pills in my hands and kicked me out the door. She ignored me when I told her I was experiencing symptoms and she ignored me when I told her about what happened with the hpts and blood test with my pregnancy back in April. She was a bitch. I just want to be safe and know. WHAT IF I am pregnant and I take bc pills for three more months? WHAT IF I am pregnant and I am having bleeding problems like placenta previa or placental abruption? Those are serious problems that could become deadly if something happens and no one knows about it... And if I am NOT pregnant then there is something else wrong that I need to get fixed. Why have I been so dead exhausted for two weeks straight? Why have I been having on again off again mild cramping every day for two weeks straight? Why in just this past week has my uterus started feeling so heavy and achey? Why why why? I would just like to know what is wrong with me and by ruling out (or in) pregnancy then I can move on to how to fix (or deal) with my symptoms.... kwim? ugh... I am frustrated with being ignored!

I took an hpt this morning (made myself not pee alllllllllll night, which was super hard and my bladder was about to burst this morning lol)... well I THOUGHT I saw a super faint faint faint line, but IDK if I was just imagining it... I tried to take a pic with my phone but my phone doesnt take good pics up close.... and I couldnt find my camera.... *shrugs*... my cervix has been high and firm and closed tight for the past 4 days and I only have about 6 more pills (including the one I take tonight) left of active bc pills before I start taking my placebo ones so yeah.... another week until I can expect AF to show up or not. Im freaking out. When I nursed Asyia this morning and last night in the middle of the night I noticed some cramping started up.... my cm is still creamy and white.... and I am still exhausted beyond belief.

breasts are uncomforatable still... had bad nausea all day yesterday and tonight... my cervix at 3AM today was medium, medium, closed, slightly posterior still and creamy white cm still.... but my temps are still climing and my window for my period to start is in 5-12 days.... wonkey or what? lol Ill be checking my cervix again when I wake up for real this morning..... still getting cramping after I nurse Asyia too.... hmmmmmmmmm.... cant wait for the next 12 days to happen so I can KNOW or test....

My cervix has gone back to posterior, high, firm, and closed....



^^^^^^^^^^^ Thats all from about the 7th on up to today..... I have about a week and a half left to wait and wonder and then I am going to get a quantitative hcg blood test done... anything above a 5 means youre pregnant.... so yeah.... should be interesting. If I do end up being pregnant then this will be my third bc baby and my SO is getting a vasectamy lol. obviously nothing works for me lol.

Here is to sitting and waiting....

Hi ladies.. I guess I better join you. I am late.. on CD 36! (which is about 1-4 days late for me). I REALLY REALLY do not want to be PG, and DH is going to be getting a V in one month (he has to wait 30 days after his initial appt).

I don't really have any symptoms.. but I did throw up last night after a coughing attack. I am cramping a lot though. My cycle was REALLY weird this time around and I had ovulation spotting for about a week (not implantation, I was ovulating for sure), which has never happened to me before.

DH and I had protected sex about 1 week before Ovu, and unprotected sex (but pulling out) one week after. So.. there really shouldn't be a way that I am PG, but I am terrified anyway!

I'm going to take a test tonight.. but here I am until I know what it says.
