Well, I POAS this morning and it is much darker (though still took a good 3 minutes to show the faintest streak -- I was hoping for a blazing line of pink glory, but alas...) but it is definately there and pink. I am pleased that is has clearly doubled in intensity and that this baby is here and things are going along. I still worry about miscarriage, but can't do anything about that, huh?
I am going to get the blood test this morning. I want to have that cold, hard data in before I tell the kids. I just don't think I could wait until the risk of mc is gone. They have had to deal with death before, so if I have a miscarriage I think they will be ok.
I know a few things: I will plan a homebirth with dp catching, I will have my friend and partner midwife attend the birth. I know I gave away almost all my baby stuff, but kept some precious things like extra cute outfits, my cloth diapers that we on my other kids' butts, and some sentimental blankets.
I POAS last Friday on dpo 9 and i got the a extremly faint line...so fait it almost looked like an evap line ( had may of those a few mths ago) well today i took another test and a PINK line came up with in 3 min ...no squinting required to see lol. So hoping that this baby will stick and be healthy. I had a m/c in Feb. So i guess we will see what happens.
I am wanting a water birth at home with the midwife i had with my last child, but i dont think it is going to happen now!!!! LOL Right Carloynn!!!! ( HUGS and Contrats!!!!)
I think I'll be having an April baby too! It still feels very unreal, though. I have a 4yo and a 18 month old, and we planned on ttc at the end of this year. I obviously ovulated very late this month -- we've been pretty careful.
My period was supposed to start last Saturday. I think I ovulated July 13 or 14 (based on the only times we dtd!). I took a First Response Early test yesterday morning. To any sane person it would look like a negative. If you held it just so, though, you could see the beginnings of a second line. Then I took another test in the late afternoon. Definitely a second line on that one, though still faint. This morning I took yet another FRE test, and the line is a bit fainter than the one I took yesterday afternoon. That's freaking me out.
I called my midwife and told her to prepare a lab slip for me to get my levels tested a couple times this week. If I can ever get these kids to take a nap, we'll go when they wake up. Wish me luck!
I wish that stupid Dr. office would send in the lab paperwork for a bloodtest. The Dr. is great - he was helpful during the m/c in that he actually talked to me. I would love a mw, but insurance doesn't cover it and I don't have the $. Plus we are planning a UC so I don't have to give birth in the medical center. Plus I want a home birth, and would really like to do it with just DH and DD present.
Just lurking about from the November DDC, but wanted to drop in and say CONGRATULATIONS to all the new expecting mommas. It will go by fast... Trust Me. It seems like only yesterday I was in the latest DDC and now there are five more added since I've joined. I'm so happy for all of you....
I tested twice yesterday and got faint positives, but there was definitely a line. I was suspicious Saturday when I started feeling kind of sick. We weren't trying to get pregnant, but not 'not' trying either. We just got married two weeks ago, which was probably the date of conception. That's a big wedding present. I have 2 daughters from a previous marriage and this will be my husband's first.
I'm still in shock!!!!! (Although, it's a happy shock)
: i cannot BELIEVE i'm here...af was due tomorrow but i just had a funny feeling about things and tested today, twice and both were BFP we are so surprised, having been so careful, and will soon be so excited!!
