My husband and I have been ttc again after our 2nd miscarriage in Jan. of this year. I waited the three months my doc asked me too after my D & C, I've started the progesterone, the baby aspirin and have been having lots of s_x. I took two FRE test yesterday, got two faint positives, one is still there, the other test line disappeared after about 10 hours? So I am thinking it's not going to happen this time. I am due for AF on Sunday. I've had a lot of symptoms of pregnancy, but not sure if it's the side effects from the progesterone...swollen bbs, sore nipples, bloating, nausea....but all of those, can be side effects. I hate it. I snuck out of the office to go buy Answer Early Preg. Test, never used them, thought for sure something might come up. At first I thought just maybe there was a line forming? And then nothing. I'm very discouraged, and do not want to be. I need words of encouragement, similar stories with POSITIVE outcomes.........something. I know I'm grasping, but come on........ Thanks for all of the posts on this website, very informative.

hey there becca. well, i'm right there with you...completely frustrated. my dh and i have also been ttc for 5 months since my m/c and d & c last dec. my dr also gave me 2 doses of progesterone to induce AF, since i have extremely long/irregular cycles. i'm on day 37 of my cycle...all neg. HPT's, no symptoms of AF or pregnancy. have you thought about a blood test? if you're PG, it would be able to detect it (if you are definitely due for AF on Sunday). I'll throw some baby dust your way!! *~*~*~*~*~

Thanks rym!! I'm sorry to hear about your loss. So your doc gave you the progesterone to induce AF? I'm so confused to all the uses of this hormone. I got my first AF 5 weeks after D&C and have had normal 28 day cycles. He has me start the progesterone on day 21 of each cycle...stop it if AF arrives, or continue up to 10 weeks if pregnant.. I called the docs office actually after I posted this, so they told me to come in on Monday for blood work, by then I should hopefully have some idea. How far along were you when you miscarried? It's so tough!! I know, I read all of the post out here, and it's amazing how common miscarriages are, although when it happens to you - it feel less common and more tragic. It's also amazing how long it takes to actually get pregnant. I remember as teenagers thinking if you even thought about s_x you'd get pregnant. Keep me posted on yours. Have your cycles regulated at all since your D & C?

i think my cycles have gotten a little "kookier" since my d&c. i was only about 3 wks when i m/c. i don't think i would have even known i was pg if it weren't for me noticing that i was extra tired and moody. i got a +HPT using Accu-clear, went to the dr, his urine test came out NEG!! i demanded a blood test 'cause i just knew i was....it turned out i was VERY early into my pregnancy. i ended up miscarrying a few days later, needed d&c. so now i'm confused too about the pills!!! i guess they can be used to either induce AF or help keep a pregnancy? my dr did have me go do bloodwork on the 21 day of my cycle this last time to make sure i was ovulating okay...and everything checked out fine. but that was on june 7th!! i think i shoulda gotten AF or BFP by now if you normally get your AF 14 days after ovulation. i think i'm gonna wait til sunday to take another test. so you have to wait til monday for a blood test!!! AAAUUUGGGHHH, the waiting.... are you still gonna try to test sunday anyway?

I am just waiting for a ht to show +++. I am late (i am never late) 32 days. so far all ---. Been trying for almost a year. I am running out of patience. I am running out of hope.

 

Becca D - June 23

Yeah, rym - I would think if you ovulated and you are late, that you would be pregnant as well. I have read so many post that people have waited 2 weeks after AF was due before they got a BFP. I am hoping yours will turn out that well. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. I am probably going to go ahead and test again - I am addicted. My first miscarriage was like yours...very early. The second I was supposed to be a little over 10 weeks and we had seen the heartbeat at 6 weeks, but the fetus died around 8 weeks they think. It was a missed miscarriage - no symptoms at all. D- How long are your cycles usually? Like I was telling rym, I've read many post where they had days and days of --- then as long as 21 dpo BPP +++ Keeping my fingers crossed for you as well.

 

d to becca - June 23

becca I have been 28 days for 10 years or more. I have been exact to the day and to almost the hour. The waiting is driving us both nuts. Funny thing is last night we went out to eat and I had to get up. I smelt the bathroom the whole time. My hubby smelt just his food. So these little things are helping keep my hopes up. But yeah 28 on the nose. Never late. always on time or early.

 

d - June 23

i range from 4-7 days no less and no longer

 

Becca D to D - June 23

Hey I know - it's the most frustrating discouraging time when forever you keep seeing the same ------ results. Have you called your doc for blood test? When was the last time you took your HPT? There is still hope that you are pregnant - many people have negatives that far a long. Maybe if your doc can do a quant_tative HCG level, that way they would have your exact number. If they ask to do a qualitative tell them you want the other. Baby dust to everyone.

 

D - June 23

I am gonna wait about another week or 2. then if nothing to the doctor i go. Since we have been trying for so long and nothing I am getting spooked. November will be a year of trying.

 

rym - June 23

thanks for the "uplifting". i feel better, and will wait it out for a bit longer. i hear you about being addicted...we should start a TA group (testers anonymous). ; ) can you maybe go to a clinic/planned parenthood to get a blood test? or do you think you can wait 'til monday? i'm so sorry to hear about your m/c's. i know how devastating it is, no matter how early along they are. but we just gotta keep the faith that we will get pregnant again and have beautiful, healthy babies!! D--don't give up!! have you seen your dr for any suggestions? bloodwork?advice? i know how frustrating it is, but it will happen. baby dust to you! *~*~*~*~*~*~*~

 

D - June 23

I went to see the doc about 3 months ago.He did tests then, He said everything is normal and that I am in good health. I just would have thought i should have a +++ on a ht already. Maybe just not enough yet, so got a few days to go i think as long as af doesn't come for the unwanted visit.

 

Becca D - June 23

I think I can wait until Monday- I figure I will definitely do another HPT, b/c I'm just that impatient, but I also figure before getting the doc's office involved, I should hold out until AF is supposed to arrive - I am having such a hard time focusing at work, I think all I've done today is search info on faint positives(reading the same things over and over, and the sames one's I read last time I was pregnant).....so unproductive - but hopefully all will be answered by Sunday (or Monday). I just have a good feeling about the two of you.....I'm thinking if you are so regular D that it has to be true......just give it more time and rym - your progesterone levels sound great - so again - keeping a positive att_tude on both of yours.

 

rym to D - June 23

have you tried tracking your ovulation with OPK's or temperatures, etc? believe me, i know the waiting and all can be nervewracking. as long as everything looks healthy with you, it will happen. since you've already been checked...how 'bout your husband? (you can tell me to shove it, if it's none of my business) : )

 

D to Rym - June 23

no never. This is why everyone is here. So we can all talk an ask ???. No have not had him checked yet. But i think we will if nothing by november. Been using a okit for the past 2 months, this past month. I took it on one day surge line was dark but not darker than the re: line. so two days later i took another one to see if i was on the money. And well the line was not darker it was lighter. So I ovulated sooner than expected. Correct me if I am wrong but that meant that i had ovulated already cause the line was lighter. we had s_x around and on the days. I have been reading up on what a womens bbt should be at everyone has all different things. If it is elavated for more than 12 days you may be pregnant, I also read, if it is below 98 you may be pregnant. any info you can give me would be great. I have been feeling sick the past few days almost to the same time. hope it is not just my mind playing tricks.. If any of this made sense that I just wrote..lol

 

D - June 23

I know the feeling. I work from home and I cannot seem to get anything done. And my hubby keeps calling while he is at work to make sure I did not get af. He is the best..

 

becca D - June 23

Yeah, I work in a fairly busy office, thank goodness no one pays attention to what others are doing at their desk ;) My husband has decided to get any glimpse of hope until I test again - we had two failed pregnancies - both miscarriages happened almost exactly a year a part. Where do you guys live? I'm in Dallas - and its hot hot hot - My due date for my last pregnancy was August 25th - wow, I could not imagine being 9 months in the hottest month of the year here.Maybe God is watching out for me, and will bring me a Spring baby :)
