Did My Husband And I Finally Conceive

First, I apologize for this being too long! I’ve posted on this site many times with hopes of being pregnant. I think this may be finally it. I went to go visit my (now) husband in Honduras from January 9 to January 29. We got married there and we bd’d on Jan 9, 10, 11, 13, 14-21, 27, and 28. My last normal AF was on December 13 which from 6-7 days (which is normal for me). While in Honduras I got something like AF but it was lighter, shorter and mostly black and just NOT normal! I didn’t really think nothing of it but a week or so before leaving, I started to wake up in the morning feeling like I was going to throw up and just so incredibly nauseous! My husband and I told ourselves not to get our hopes up and to believe that conceiving couldn’t be THAT easy and that I was probably feeling that way because I would be leaving soon. (after all, we had been trying since July 2005 with no luck and always *thinking* we had conceived when we really hadn’t) I will tell you though, those times that I *thought* we had conceived, I never had ANY nausea. Just my period was a bit late and I was more moodier than usual and I was always thinking about it. THIS TIME though I have just put it in God's hands and I have nausea on and off, lots of gas (I am eating more vegetables and fruits now though, so maybe that is why?), I void more than usual, I have pink cheeks, my face is rounder, the glands underneath my left armpit are sore, I get motion sickness in the car (NEVER have had that!), my lower stomach is a little bit bigger, I cry at things I usually never cry at, and something even MORE weirder: I never used to be lactose intolerant in my life. We had conceived a while back in 2003 and after our pregnancy had ended I developed symptoms of being lactose intolerant! (had to buy Lactaid pills and everything!) Well, now all of a sudden I don’t need a Lactaid pill and I can eat anything dairy and have no stomach problems or bathroom problems at all! This is very weird for me so I’m *thinking* again that maybe this could possibly have something to do with pregnancy especially after talking with my friend, and she said before she conceived her son, she was lactose intolerant and after conceiving it went away! I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is going on? I’m seriously thinking of getting a test to test with on Valentine’s Day and then surprising my husband with it, but after ALL the negative tests that I have gotten, I just don’t think I have the nerve to do it! I was also thinking of waiting it out and seeing if AF shows her lovely face this month. Thanks to all who replies!

hey meg...I was wondering, how long are your cycles normally? b/c if you have a normal length cycle, and your last af started on Dec. 13th you should have ovulated somewhere before Dec. 24th and Dec. 26th....did you bd around that time? you're af should have started some time in January...did it not? a test should defintley be accurate, i'd go ahead and take one. good luck!

Hello mrose, well my cycles range from, honestly I don't really know. I used to keep track but then I stopped. The only cycles I wrote down was for Dec 13 and Jan 22 ( it was a weird one though and NOT normal). I know for sure that I don't have a normal cycle though. I think I will grab a test because the sooner I know the sooner I can get prenatal care IF by chance I am! Thanks! Any other replies are welcomed still! :o)

 

mrose - February 12

it's possible it could have been implantation bleeding...I would defintley take a test though. I hope you get a BFP! :-)

 

megdan8582 - February 12

Aww, thank you mrose I hope my husband and I get a BFP too! Baby dust to all! :o)

Why on Earth are you asking us? We can only speculate. Take a test!

 

megdan8582 - February 13

LIN, I was only asking to see what people would say. Maybe they would say "Oh I've had those kind of symptoms too." I know I am DEFINITELY not the only one in the world who has had these (or even SOME of these) symptoms, so I was just curious. And after all, isn't this a forum where people can come to ask about these things? Thanks for your reply and baby dust. : )

megan pay no attention to lin. lets talk about the possiblity of you being pregnant that is a more interesting topic. have you got up the courage to test yet or are you still trying to get up the courage

 

megdan8582 - February 13

Thanks javidsgirl. Well, I am still feeling nauseous on and off. I haven't had the courage to buy a test yet and even if I do buy a test I don't think I will have the courage to take it unless AF doesn't show this month. :o)

 

mrose - February 13

meg, when is af due this month?

 

megdan8582 - February 13

Hi msrose! Well according to mymonthlycycles.com af would be due March 5th, but I don't know if that is true because of two things: #1 I'm not even sure if the Jan 22nd thing was my AF and #2 on mymonthlycycles.com I didn't record my Aug, Sept, Oct or Nov AF. So I'm not sure if AF will be due this month or in the beginning of next month! If I am not pregnant, I am DEFINITELY going to never stop keeping track again! :o)

 

BrendaW - February 13

You should DEFINITELY test!!!! That is all so promising especially with the wierd period. You need to just dive in and do it!! If you are it is better that you find out sooner and if your not at least you will know for sure! TEST TEST TEST!!!

 

megdan8582 - February 13

Thanks for responding BrendaW! Yes that weird period REALLY threw me off. Just something was not right and I could feel it. I love your enthusiasm and I think that I just caught some of it lol because I'm going to buy a test tomorrow and test! Wouldn't that be a nice Valentine's Day present? And if I am not, then I have a bottle of hair color that I can use to cheer me up lol! (I bought some and told myself "If the test comes out positive, woohoo! But if it comes out negative I'll just color my hair!") Baby dust to all! :o)

 

megdan8582 - February 13

One more thing, any suggestions on what test would be good to buy? I know that they detect different levels. Thanks!

 

hollyg8tr - February 13

It sounds to me like you are Definitely PREGNANT!! Those are all the tell tale signs. Go head and test lady! God is on your side! Let me know.

 

megdan8582 - February 13

Gosh hollyg8tr I truly hope I am pregnant! I feel that God is on my side too. I plan on testing tomorrow! I'm nervous but it is something that I just HAVE to know! Baby dust and thank you for responding!

 

megdan8582 - February 15

Well ladies I tested...and... BFN :o( My nausea is not as bad as it was. Yesterday it was nonexistent until late, late last night it started to come on, but then went away. I will see if I get my period and if not, then just for the heck of it I will test again. I have an irregular cycle so who knows. I am leaving it in God's hands. Also back in 2005 I was diagnosed with PCOS so maybe THAT is what was going on. I went to GNC today though and bought some Vitex and will start that. Has anyone heard of it? I hope this will regulate my cycles! Thanks all! Baby dust to all! :o)
