Hi ladies: Our old thread was getting too long! This is for all of you who are going for May/June babies. I am so wanting to track this with some friends! Mrs. P/Tracy, Mrs. Halvie, Jill and Kelly, I hope to keep in touch with you all!

 

Tracy - August 24

I'm here! Thanks for starting this. Kim- I'm running out of tests too. I want to be ready for Monday's testing so I'm going to go out tomorrow and get more! Also, they aren't getting darker--just feel sunburned at times! Weird. I'm trying not to get my hopes up for this month. I just have a feeling though...I almost won't believe it if I'm not pregnant this time. You fell asleep at your desk? Oh my gosh...either you are pregnant or you really, really need a vacation!!!

 

Kim - August 24

Tracy: Yay! I know what you mean - I will be extremely disappointed and surprised if i'm not pg. I decided yesterday that there is no harm in being excited. If I am disappointed, well, I'll just deal with it then. For now, I am going to think I'm pregnant and be happy and anxious and excited! I have a question for you. Yesterday when I took a test, I thought I saw a very faint positive. This morning I took one and nothing. Is it possible that very early you could test differently or that your hormone levels can vary at different times of the day? Or did I just think I saw a positive?

Hi Ladies, I've been reading your other thread, I've been really low lately as I lost my little boy in March and then another m/c the end of June (blighted ovum). I just finished my first af since the m/c and we are ttc again. My DH thinks we should wait longer, but as you have mentioned, you will conceive when your body is ready. We have been through so much in the past year alone and I hope you gals don't mind if I join in on this thread. I have been doing more reading on this site than posting (just getting the courage to talk about him). Sorry I'm rambling, but I have been so out of sorts. I'm a test-aholic too and then got my af and dissapointed again. I hope you gals don't get yours and you get the + on the 29th.

Just wanted to say I am excited to have found you ladies and hope to keep in touch too. Maybe I will be testing with you on the 29th...but I am definitely focusing on getting AF not on expecting to be prego as last AF lasted so long and probably interfered with ovulation. Maybe a little miracle will happen though:)

 

Kim - August 24

Hi Paulette. I am so sorry about your little boy and about your second miscarriage. There is really nothing quite as painful as losing a child is there, born or not yet born. I am very happy that you are joining our thread and are finding the courage to talk about your precious babies. It is so sad sometimes, I just have to be low. Other times I feel ready to try again and get excited. I think it is perfectly fine to bounce back and forth like that, and I hope you will give yourself the freedom to feel whatever you need to, and to grieve the way that you need to. You can CERTAINLY do that here! You should know that your chances of a third miscarriage in a row are very slim. Alison, who posts frequently on this site and who has had 3 m/c, says that only about 1% of all women have 3 or more in a row. And even if they do, a lot of times it is still considered "normal" - just very unlucky - by many doctors. I am hoping the best for you and wishing you a happy and healthy 3rd pregnancy. Do you have any other children?

 

Kim - August 24

I say AMEN to your possible little miracle MrsHalvie...you never know! Either way, I hope your finding out one way or the other comes very soon and that you will not have to wait long if it is for AF.

 

Tracy - August 24

Kim- Well I don't think there is any harm in letting ourselves be excited. If I'm going to be disappointed in a week, then I can't imagine the news will be any easier if I was negative this week prior anyway. Not to mention, I think it's better for your all around health to be optimistic rather then pessimistic. As for your question...I'll give you my opinion but I know that you know I'm not the expert. The way I view it, why would you be encouraged to test first morning urine as opposed to later in the day if there wasn't some reason for it. Therefore, I believe you can get two different readings in the same 24 hours if you test at different times. I say that the faint positive is an unbelieveablely good sign. I also know that in my case, I want to see a positive so badly that I scrutinize those test strips that you wouldn't believe looking for even a trace of a line. If I knew where I could get my hands on a good microscope today, I'd be using it to see if I can see anything through that!. In a few days you can be even more sure about the results . You have to be excited. I'm thinking about you and hope that the next few days fly by for us!

 

Paulette- - August 24

I too am sorry to hear about the past year. Sometimes though, just when you think you can't take any more, a miracle comes into your life. I hope that you can be easy on yourself and get comfort from others that truly understand what you are going through. As Kim said, it is normal to feel devastated and "out of sorts" at this point. I think the more you talk about it with people that "get it" the better you feel--at least that's what happened with me. Also, I've found comfort in reading the posts on here so I can see the successes that others have had after so much disappointment and loss. I've gained a renewed hope that allows me to be optimistic again.

 

Kim - August 24

Tracy you are so funny with your miscroscope idea. Yes! When you find one send it my way. I fear that I may have been overscrutinizing - so hopefully things will become more defined in the next few days. I will hit my 18th high temperature post ovulation on 8/30 - so if they don't go down before then, that indicates an almost 100% positive for pregnancy. 6 MORE DAYS - AHHHHHHH!!!! How will we do it?!?! Hang in there - I'm thinking about you too and can't wait til next week!

 

Tracy - August 24

Don't you just wish that there was a pregnancy test that had three possible outcomes? 1.) Pregnant 2.) Not pregnant and 3.) Too early to test? I'm sure the manufacturers of these things love the chronic testers like us! Maybe our children will have that technology.....

I have a question regarding cycle length. I started spotting on June 18th, had ultrasound on 20th showing no baby, bled all week, miscarried some on the 25th, had scan on 27th showing still more to pa__s, and on 28th I pa__sed the sac and baby. I am trying to keep track of my cycles, but am really confused about when to start counting. Can you guys tell me better when to count from? Af was July 28 which was 30 days from pa__sing baby, but should I start counting before then? I am getting really excited about the chance of conceiving and wanting to do my best to help it happen. As I said before Af was long and if I am right back on track I should get the end of this weekend or so, but am wondering if it might be longer or not. By the way, Kim, I am in NW Iowa, what part are you in?

 

Kim - August 24

MrsHalvie: Hi! Yes you should start counting from your first AF after m/c. So for you, July 28 is day 1 of cycle. That means you are on day 27 (I'm on day 26 - woo hoo!). So if your cycles are 30 days long, that means you are officially "late" if you don't get your period by Sunday. :-) I'll tell you what though - the first time I was pregnant, I kept testing and getting negatives. So I stopped testing. 10 days later when still no AF pg test was +. "Early pregnancy tests" are a total sham! But it was nice to not know until I was almost 6 weeks pregnant - makes first trimester go faster. :-) I hope you are pregnant!!!!!!! I live in Iowa City by the way. Nice town, I like it here. Family is from Central Illinois, so far enough but not too far. :-)

My little boy. Lou, was our first. If you have some time, here's my story. We had been trying for almost 4 years and when we stoped trying, aparently it happened. Actually I was still getting what I thought was AF and did not know I was preg until I ended up in hospital from the pain of contractions. I thought that maybe I was miscarrying then as I was only a few days late on af. It was such a shock that night and my DH stood by me the entire time. In an instant I was a Mom and then I lost my boy. He was still born at 22 weeks on March 1/05. All I could think was "How could I be that far along without knowing?" My dr and ob said that if I was still getting "af" then any other symptoms could be explained and I would never have thought I was preg. Still after I could not get myself over the grief and guilt of If I had known. After I found out that all tests came back normal and I was healed, we decided to try immediately. I did not think that it would have happened so fast, the first month we tried. But by the time I saw my dr the test in his office did not pick up and I went through 3 weeks of testing until the m/c was over. Now here I am, since my m/c I have taken a leave from work to heal my mind, soul and body. My dr thinks that stress was a major factor and I need to clear my head and learn to deal with stress better. And I have to say that since, I have been feeling better when I can cry if I feel like it and don't have to worry if anyone sees me. Kim - Thanks for listening. I think the early tests are a sham too, I have other friends that have tried them and found they did not pick up their preg until after expected af. Most swear by the clearblue digital tests. What do you use? Best of luck with your testing. Tracy - Thanks for listening. When I took leave from work, I started searching for support and found this site. I also got in touch with old friends and found that I was not alone. Since then we meet about once a week and we all seem to find that this support id helpful, especially if we do not find the same understanding from our familes. Best of luck on your testing.

Hi all, can I know how many dpo if you gals are going to test on 29th? I really find the waiting very long and wanted so much to test on 26th... (that will only be 11dpo)... Any signs of pregnancy? I don't have any except sore b___sts and feeling sleepy. Last mth, i also have sore b___sts and af was late for a wk. I was so happy, thot i was preg, keep testing but always -ve and in the end, af came. By the way, there's a preg test that will only show preg/not preg - it's Clearblue, with 3 test sticks inside.

 

Tracy - August 25

Paulette-that is so horrible. I am so sorry that you are dealing with all of that. I am on my 25th day of my cycle. I'm not exactly sure when I ovulated as it was difficult to read those strips from the OPK and for some reason I didn't feel like they were accurate. Frustrating! Anyway, I think I ovulated on the 15th--which would make me 10dpo. The 29th would make me 14 dpo with AF expected on the 30th--so I'm really hoping that I get something at that point. I broke down and tested again this morning because I just feel odd--very bloated, upset stomach, constipated, tired, heavy but not painful bbs (they would normally be very sore at this point if I were to get AF on Tuesday)....and really think I may be pg. HOWEVER...BFN this morning. I know it's still very early but I'm starting to feel a bit disappointed and maybe these "signs" are psychosomatic. Jill---I hear you about it taking forever for this week to pa__s. You'll be 14 dpo on the 29th...almost just like me. Our plan is to test in the morning and update this site as soon as possible thereafter. Hope you're with us! Kim- any new results?

 

Margo - August 25

hi Kim, I want to suggest to use Digital ClearBlue Easy pregnancy test. It gives you answer with the words (pregnant/ not pregnant) so there is no guess about faded lines and it could give you an answer 5-6 days before your period. Tip: it's best to use it 1st thing in the morning or after 3-4 hours of no peeing. (I personally used it multiply times 6 days before my period and it worked better than First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test) Good luck!!
