The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread - Page 3

post #41 of 1838
Officially taking my seat in the peanut gallery.

DBF and I used withdrawal on what now seems to be O day. I'm waiting for AF as well, but I'm not too worried. We used withdrawal as our only birth control for two years. Good vibes to everyone hoping for an oops! I wouldn't mind one myself...

DanelleB, those strips sound fantastic! I'm going to have to order some.

Good morning ladies. Our group seems to be growing, who would have though so many of us had an oops about the same time. I am proud of myself for avoiding testing this morning. I can't wait to see what my temps do tomorrow, normally they would drop a bit. My temps are higher post o this cycle than previous cycles and they are not really fluctuating as much either. The wait continues, and so does the hunger. :

I could eat all day, this could also be due to the fact that I recently started running again. But that doesn't explain the crampiness.

I hope everyone is doing well and gets the results they hope for.

Good morning!

Good luck everyone!

Thanks. Our mail doesn't come until at least 2pm, so I'll be waiting a while. It's 9:30am now.

Yeah first morning urine.

I am SO upset now. Last night I was excited because dh said my bbs were bigger. woohoo. Then all this morning I've been having AF feelings. That bloated, AF is coming feeling. I'm reeeeeally hoping it's not. I was getting excited.

I never thought of putting FMU in a cup then testing later. That will solve my dilema for tomorrow. DH is taking a police test tomorrow and I don't want him to be stressed out if it is +, as it will distract him from the task at hand. I think I will test after he gets home from the test. If I can wait for him. Otherwise I will test after he is gone for the day and keep it to myself until he comes home. I am not a very good secret keeper though. I have already told 2 people of my issue IRL.

well i thought i might be getting some signs of morning sickness, but no I just caught the stomach flu that my kids have been sharing all week. Oh well. I order some tests yesterday, and plan to test on Sunday, mine and dh anniversery. Sunday is still 4 days before AF is due so we'll see. I'm keeping my figures crossed.

I think I am joining your ship as well. I feel ashamed after reading all your posts that I don't know all this fertility and cycle stuff that I feel I should know. I have no idea when I O, but I figure it was in those three or four days I wouldn't let DH out the door w/o DTD which is kind of unusual for me. I wish I knew all the stuff you girls know about yourselves. I really should do more research on this stuff. Anyway, seeing as AF is 4 days late, and even though I have tested 3 times now all neg, I really don't know what else could be going on. Well even if I'm not just wanted to say I've enjoyed reading your thread Good luck everyone.

If you want to know about your cycle read Taking Charge of Your Fertility (TCOYF). I learned pretty quickly. I was confidant after 2 months of charting. I am only in this situation because DH didn't want to use protection even though I told him it was definitly not a safe day.

They arrived.

I am none too happy with the results.

It says it can test 10-50 miul so I don't know.

I am either 8dpo or 10 dpo...can't tell. But more likely 8.

Shouldn't 10 be showing up by now if it implanted already...which it probably would have seeing as I'm having symptoms and had cramping.

My last baby implanted at 5dpo. Got a + on 9dpo with a test that measures 12 and up.

*sigh* I'll keep trying. It was stark white, not trace of a line.

Well I might be in this boat as well... We really want another baby, but I was supposed to wait ( & use condoms) till after my next af to start trying again b/c I had an infection in my uterus & they wanted to make sure my uterine lining was recovered & all the antibiotics were out of my system before I ttc again... This month has been really stressful & I have completely forgotten to temp pretty much every morning... So all I know is that I'm on cycle day 26.. Anyways... We had a condom leak a couple days ago when I was having a lot of fertile cm... Now for the last couple of days I've had blood tinged cm & then yesterday I had cramps & a lot of pressure on my cervix ( I usually get af minutes to a few hours after this feeling) & then today after having sex I had stronger cramps, a lot more blood in cm & was sure that I was starting my af... Put a pad on & went about my day... Next time I went pee there was nothing on the pad & just the tiniest amount of blood in cm... So as much as I want a baby, I'm a little scared as there is a higher miscarriage & tubal pg rate if you get pg right after this kind of infection...
post #56 of 1838
Gee, guys..thanks for laughing at my misfortune. *sniff* ...











So, all my pg symptoms seem to have gone away. Boobs not even really all that tender anymore...but maybe that's because I've stopped poking them every five minutes to see if they are still tender.


Still no stinkin AF!


Wait! I didn't mean to say "stinkin" ..I meant "dear, kind, lovely..and very WELCOME..AF"

Next time I get the urge to pee on a stick, I'll go out in the back yard ...same confusing results for no money.

I could have used this thread several times in my life. I am currently 29 weeks pregnant with my withdrawl oops baby. DD2 was an oops after a drunken night at a wedding, and DD1 was just a time when we took our chances with no protection. Our DS was the only baby we actually intended to conceive. Good luck to everyone waiting.

I just couldn't not respond to your post. I hope everything turns out well for you.

I have been watching this thread very closely. Although I am not in an "oops" situation. I have been in the past. When I seen your response reminded me of how my DS got here. One concert, and drunken night and nine months latter.

Haha! Thanks I needed that. New rule for me, no peeing on sticks until AF is a week late, too pricey. I guess my body is just trying to get into a new schedule after last pg cause four days late she finally showed up. I'm kinda sad, but relieved at the same time. This has however opened up a new conversation with DH. We had planned on waiting at least a two years before trying again, but I think in reality we both want more kids than we let on. Well, have to at least get out of debt before ttc, or at least pay off the medical bills from my last birth first
