The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread - Page 90

post #1781 of 1838

After a full week of spotting, now I appear to be actually bleeding.  Big mystery. 

 

I'm a little disappointed as my husband won't willingly go for a sixth, but would be fine with it if it happened accidentally.  He said, "Is it even legal to have six children??"  I think his mind is turned towards a vasectomy now.  I don't know what I think about it.  All this childbearing and baby time has gone too quickly by, and now I'm almost 37.  Bah!

It looks this tread may be a little old but I need a place to voice my fears and vent. dizzy.gifMy ex-boyfriend and I are thinking about getting back together again and we DTD twice this month. We used the withdrawal method for birth control even though I was very skeptical about it, seeing as I've gotten pregnant on birth control a multitude of times in the past that ended in early miscarriage (assisted with herbs).

 

I have a 12 year old daughter and have been toying with the idea of having another child for the last six months or so, but only if my ex and I get back together. Well, I’m 8dpo and I’m pretty sure I’m pregnant. This is going to sound crazy but I started noticing changes about 2dpo. Initially I felt ill (nausea, dizziness and headaches) for about 48 hours but told myself it was way too soon to think I was pregnant, plus he pulled out and we only had sex twice. Sheepish.gif

 

This morning I woke with an urgent need to urinate, but forced myself to wait so I could take my BBT and chart it. I was also going to inspect my cervix but my finger slid so easily into the opening of my vagina I gasped…must be pregnant, because I remember how soft it felt with my daughter and my last miscarriage (2 years ago). yeahthat.gif My finger had this white, lotion like gunk all over it and I remembered that from my pregnancy with my daughter as well.

 

To make a long story short I think I’m pregnant and didn’t have the intention to conceive. I’m 37 years old and just learned how to chart my fertility this month with the desire of knowing my fertile days to avoid another unplanned pregnancy…seems like “I’m a day late and a dollar short.” clap.gif

 

I’ve dank wheatgrass religiously for the past four years. I think this and my genetics are the reason why I’m so fertile. Taking a HPT on New Year’s Day. rant.gif

At 10 DPO a BFN showed up.

post #1784 of 1838
I hope you get the result your heart wants! 10 DPO is pretty early though so I'm sure you will test again and when you do be sure to post! smile.gif

So I literally spent all night on this thread and read all of them from the start until the last haha. I am new to this site but am very thankful to see that I am not out of my mind with symptoms. So here's my story! Im in the midst of nursing school and currently taking birth control and very consistently at that. I havent missed a single pill for about a year. Last month I had breakthrough bleeding that I am chalking up to finals stress which led me to bleed for something stupid like ten days. Now this month its seven days before my period (placebo pill week) and for just about a week I have had:

sore/swollen breasts (which I havent had since before starting the pill, about a year and a half)
cramping consistently throughout the day(never get them this early before period)
nausea in the mornings and randomly during the day
heart burn
crazy lucid dreams

Is it possible that Im pg? The crazy part is that I remember feeling a little bit crampy during the middle of last week like I used to when i would O before the pill. AH! This is not the best of timing but I could probably calm my DH nerves with time haha. Maybe finally posting will bring AF next week lol.

Also, I am on Orsythia(Alesse, Aviane equivalent). Anyone heard of someone getting pg on it?

post #1786 of 1838

So true....I am going to test again at around 15/16 DPO if AF doesn't arrive before then. I'll make sure to post my results. whistling.gif

 

You are experiencing the same symptoms as me, except for cramping all the time. Did you take a test for the heck of it to see what it said? I was once pregnant and had what I thought was a period, but must have been implementation bleeding for about 3 days around the time I should have started my cycle, had cramps with that as well. duh.gif  Good luck to you and hope you get the results you want/need!
 

post #1787 of 1838
I think I'm going to hold off testing until at least 13 DPO. I had to go ahead and make a chart based on the past few months periods to get a probable O date for this month to go by. Looks like Im super early give or take 7 days, so my BFN equate test today isn't too reliable lol. Let the week waiting begin. The more time I think about a baby, the more I feel like maybe it's supposed to happen now?

I swear as I was typing this my bbs got more sore lol. Lord help me. Will be thinking of you MeanVeggie!
post #1788 of 1838
I know I said I'd wait, but I happened to find dollar tree tests today and I never do! So here's what I got at 9dpo. Can you see anything? Evap or BFP? This aren't notorious for evaps....I don't want to get too excited. Here's the link to the pic.

post #1789 of 1838

Isn't it crazy how once you think you may be pregnant how you start getting all the symptoms. I kept asking myself "Is this really happening or am I imagining it?" happytears.gif Do you have any children? Have you been pregnant before? I thought I saw a faint line...I duno???

post #1790 of 1838
Haha I know what you mean! This isn't the first time I've freaked out over it, not surprisingly wink1.gif. I do keep questioning whether its for real. I keep poking my bbs and then I'm reminded that nope, that's definitely real. And cramps, they're definitely real and still here lol. This is the first response I've ever gotten on a test besides it being stark white, whether evap or otherwise.

Any new stuff for you MeanVeggie?

And no we have no children and no previous pregnancies. We've been married 6 months and I'm still finishing school so this would be a whoopsie baby. smile.gif
post #1791 of 1838
Hey i was just browsing here out of sentiment but i checked that photo. That is really light but I've taken those dollar store tests all my test times ( bfp and bfn) and never had evaps. I also read somewhere years ago that they actually picked up lower levels than some of the early test ones. Looks to me like something was there. Good luck!
post #1792 of 1838
Thanks for the input crazyms! I'm getting sweaty palms over here. Took another test this morning with fmu and I see something again. I think I'm going to try an frer tomorrow morning!

I took another test at 14 DPO and it was anothee BFN. I'm now 15 DPO and I expect my temperatures to start dropping and AF to arrive in a couple to a few days. I'm relieved on one hand, but I'd be happy if I was. At this point I'm just happy to know. orngbiggrin.gif

 

Will you post a link to your next results? When do you plan on telling your DH or have you already told him? Good luck!

post #1794 of 1838
What type of test did you take? Maybe you have a shy bean wink1.gif but do update if you find the time if af comes! I'll be thinking about you! And I sure will post it! Morning can't come fast enough. I'm in the same place as you as far as being relieved/ happy one way or the other.
post #1795 of 1838
Here's this morning's test. I'm 11 DPO so in reality, that positive looking test would be way early on what was it, 9 DPO but they should really start showing up soon. Of course I squinted at this for an hour but within the first 2 minutes I swear I saw a little pink and I still think I see something. I'll be testing again tomorrow lol. Fresh stock of tests today from $tree. Any news for you MeanVeggie?

I see it, MrsP.

I'm now 10 weeks along with a very, very unexpected pregnancy. I've posted on this thread at other points where I was hopeful but not avoiding. This was a much bigger shock!

I hope everyone gets the news they want!
post #1797 of 1838
Congrats HeatherB and I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months! It sounds like you're still in shock a bit so ill be thinking of you that you get your head wrapped around it smile.gif.

Unexpected is the best way to describe what this would be for us, considering I'm on the pill. If af doesn't come, I'll have to chalk it up to my pill not being a strong enough dose of hormones because I had breakthrough bleeding last month and I take my pill within the same hour everyday.
post #1798 of 1838

Congratulations HeatherB!

 

MrsPeriwinkle it still looks like there's a faint line. Hopefully the next day or two will give you the results (and sigh of relief) you need. Today I had a glob of copper tinged blood when I wiped but that's it. I'm assuming AF is on her way??

post #1799 of 1838
I was on this thread back in 2009 when I thought I might be pregnant with my now-3yo DS.... And here I am again, and hoping for a different outcome! I'm only 3 dpo now but worried because I conceive easily. DH woke me up the other night to dtd and in my half-asleep state I thought we were safe to not bother with a condom. In the morning I took my temp and was surprised with a clear temp jump, which means we had sex within hours of ovulation.
We are (were?) done having babies. We have three boys and we are at capacity financially and emotionally. I returned to school last year and am determined to get my degree. I'm planning on going on bc next month (can't swing it right now because we have crappy insurance)... I can't get pregnant now!
This is going to be a long 2 weeks.
post #1800 of 1838

I am sort of in dantesmama's shoes, at least in respect to school, but only one kiddo so far for me! This is one rollercoaster thread and i was here once before! I am not even to a point where I could have symptoms beyond being nervous! I had sex 3 or 4 and then 1 or 2 days before O, I just don't know exactly when I O'd. We dtd Sunday morning and noticed fertile CM Monday (1/29) evening (dtd but protected). I don't chart and we have used withdrawal (most of the time) successfully for 2 years.

Some questions..

Do you guys know when you typically O after noticing fertile CM? I know they say those swimmers can live for up to 7 days but that's pretty rare. Is 2 days rare..normal? I know it all depends on the internal stuff for both of us, but I just wondered if you ladies knew what was "typical". Btw, my cycles range from 25-31 days and last month was very early so on the online chart I use said Monday was O day, but I take it with a grain of salt. I believe it has me Oing on CD13 with my wonky cycles. 

I agree-- this is going to be a long two weeks. Thanks ladies!
