:) Some encouragement - We ttc my son (12 years ago), so I was paying attention. MANY negative hpt's, then bloodwork hcg level came back so low and slow to rise that I was told to expect a miscarriage. Weeks passed, waiting for that m/c, while my mom guessed I was pregnant but we didn't want to tell anyone yet. It was months before the doctor said the pregnancy seemed viable, which it was completely healthy baby boy.
.... A few years later, I had some unexpected symptoms, didn't even mess with hpt's, my doctor quickly confirmed pregnancy. Baby girl was healthy, still is.
.........I remarried 4 years ago, to Dh who had a vasectomy 13 years ago. Yet, there have been three times that I have felt pregnant, each ended with late periods. NOW, I have been feeling pregnant for 9 weeks (11 weeks since LMP). I have a new ob/gyn (thanks insurance) who thinks it's all in my head. "You don't want to be pregnant," he told me two years ago. And this time, I called his office and asked for bloodtest, but they said insurance wouldn't cover it without positive urine test. I said I'd pay for it myself. Well, it came back negative = "2." But other bloodtests ruled out PCOS, which was good to know. I had my yearly pap/exam when I thought I might be 7 weeks pregnant, and he did it in 30 seconds, told me all looked fine and the unusual cramping might be endometriosis. But my periods are very regular, 4-5 days long, no cramps. Anyway, he said, "You don't want endometriosis." @@
I am a type 1 diabetic, so had also turned to my endo for help. She all but rolled her eyes, advised me to stop eating gluten, and try yoga. :( thanks B
Today I could be 11 weeks pg - or maybe not. We can't afford to pay for ultra-sound. My drs think I'm crazy. I don't feel comfortable ruling out possibility of pregnancy. I've had only 2 days of vey mild bleeding the past two "periods," along with NUMEROUS pregnancy symptoms. My breasts/nipples ache. I don't tell anyone but my closest friend - haven't even told my Dh bc he wouldn't believe me. I will be so mad if I am, and not getting prenatal care. I just want to KNOW, without a doubt, if I am not.
I will repost if/when I find out! Hope it's soon for all of us, one way or another.
