Lots of big <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> to you! You have a found a good place with lots of awesome women to talk to, so welcome. My heart goes out to you for all that you have been through, both with your hormones and possible m/c and your DPs illness as well.<br><br>
Keep posting, keep us posted, and ask away. The ladies here are a wealth of knowledge.<br><br>
You will be on my mind and in my prayers.
<b>KittyKat</b> I'm sorry your having such a tough time with all of this. I know how tough it is to lose a child, and I don't think (after what I've gone thru) that it matters how far along you are. Maybe you did miscarry, and it was just so very early that the symptoms were just not there. Or since it was your first PG your body rejected the "new" cells, and started pushing it away and rejecting all the symptoms as well. So, I honestly believe that lots of women miscarry before they even know they are PG, AND that lots of women miscarry their first PG b/c it is so "new" to their body...anyother ideas ladies???<br><br>
I know it's tough, and you don't have to test, but if you're not going to test then you should treat your body as if you ARE PG and don't do anything that could harm the sticky bean. If your not then AF will show (probably) and if you are, then you can test in a month. Normally, if your not on fertility meds, an OB will not see you until like 9 weeks anyway. So you would be doing NO harm to yourself or your child...GL<br><br>
~~~Baby dust to all~~~

I've been on prenatal vitamins, off caffine, and off anti-inflamitories since I started having symptoms last time. I'm also not eating processed foods and I've started switching to nitrate free meats and bacon. I also get out of cleaning the cat boxes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
I'm also getting an anonymous blood test to see if I'm a carrier for the liver disease.<br><br>
Today I feel awful. I'm bloated, crampy, icky, sticky, and just plain yucky. I feel like I'm about to start the worstest period ever. Odd thing is, I never feel like this before a period. My periods never bother me. They come when they're supposed to, they behave themselves, and leave quietly.<br>
I started spotting yesterday, but it's really odd. Usually I spot for about 3 days and it gradually gets heavier until my period comes. This time I have one spot, then hours pass and I have another spot, then all night passed, then one more spot. My temp is still high (98.4...my baseline is 97.7) but I don't dare hope.<br><br>
I plan on testing on day 18 (Wednesday Nov 1) if my temps are still high and no period has arrived.
KittyKat, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> It sure does seem like you have a lot of hurdles to jump. I know that money is tight, but if you are worried about your fertility, after using "non-doctor approved" birth control for 12 years, you could get some testing done without the normal waiting period.<br><br>
Good luck. I hope the bloating, crampy, ickiness is a pg symptom.
<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I am really sorry at everything that you have had to go through. It sounds really rough. I do not know what it would feel like. I do know what it feels like to be told that you are having a miscarriage, and then later be told there was never a baby. I also mourned. At one point during my long ordeal, I was told that I needed to get pregnant in the next couple of months or I would never be able to have a baby.<br><br>
