okay, i am typing this a bit nervously and with some hesitation, but i just got the lightest BFP ever. Seriously, i pretty much had to take the cartridge apart to see it (yep, i learned that from you lovelies)
I really hope i am not jumping the gun here. I had a doozy of a miscarriage at 14 weeks back in feb (they thought it was a molar) and went through hell and back with d&C"S (yes 2!!) so i am very frightened that i am getting my hopes up. I will test again in 2 days. I am really hoping by then i can see a blaring positive!!

Hi momma,

Congrats to you! Don't be frightened or worried. Enter this pregnancy (if you are preggo) with a big smile. I had a horrible miscarriage in january but somehow two weeks later, I was pregnant again. I was so worried, but now I'm due in October and have learned to let this be a great experience and not scary. Congrats to you and your family!

Thank you so much ladies. I was too scared to test this morning because i want to see a line that i do not need to squint for. I think i will test FMU tomorrow and hopefully that will make me feel better. I have not been cramping the last two days which i think is a good sign because when AF is coming i always have cramping and spotting for a couple days before

I had a very difficult time sleeping last night. I was up for 2 hours at 4 because of a mosquito that snuck in. so my temp is not very accurate this morning. I think after tomorrow, if its an "obvious" BFP, i will stop temping because it will just make me nervous. KWIM?

I do have very positive thoughts regarding this pregnancy. I had a strong feeling this was it around ovulation and last time i had a shaky feeling something was not quite right from the beginning. I told everyone, Dh, midwife, doctor, and they all said it was "second time jitters" : annoying but there was nothing i could have done anyway. It just really taught me to trust my instincts.

Please keep us posted on your next HPT. That faint line is annoying, isn't it!

I also had a miscarriage in February, so I'm really nervous with this pregnancy as well. I have strong symptoms so far, but I know I will become even more ancy as I reach the point where I lost the baby before.

I'm going for weekly blood draws to make sure my hormone levels are okay. My progesterone was only 2 a day before I had the m/c in Feb. When they checked it last week at 3 weeks pregnancy, it was 120! So now I'm all paranoid about that. That is good news I think, but it is WAY higher than normal progesterone numbers, even for 3rd trimester. I did some online research that says it may indicate multiples. I go for my second blood draw tomorrow, so we'll see what those results are...

After I tested on Friday - both DH and I confessed that we *thought* we'd seen a VERY faint line on the test I took earlier in the week. But neither one of us wanted to either get our hopes up or mention it to the other...

I hope yours get darked soon

Nice to meet you.

Has anyone else noticed all the Mommas on this board who had a miscarriage in Feb? so strange, eh? I really hope to see you all at the very end this time.

Happy 9 months. :

well my temp is on the way down, i had the tiniest bit of spotting last night and with FMU this morning i got a bfn. So i guess i am out. Maybe taking a part the test gave me a little too much hope there was probably nothing there in the first place.

Thanks for all the support
