Hey everyone! Glad to see this thread revived

Spiffy, I have to say, not sure if it's a weird post mc thing, shoddy tests, or something else, but I had tests like these every dang month after my last loss. I wasn't pregnant. Once even got a pink frer and idk if it was a chemical or what but I think my hcg was doing weird crap! I see little smudge lines on your tests but they look so odd! Not evap-y enough but not bfp either! I'm sorry you're in the stupid testing limbo right now! Keep us updated!

As for me, I'm trucking along. C section is scheduled for Halloween SO not what I wanted. But it's 39 weeks exactly. Didn't have much choice. But I do hope maybe I'll go into labor on my own before that. If I do, I think I'd try a vbac. But I wouldn't want to be induced and they want him out at 39 weeks. So it's scheduled. I might be trying to bring on labor myself by 38 weeks though.

Gosh Spiffy, it's hard to tell. What brand are they? The Walmart cheapies did that to me almost every month.

AFM, no really even trying right now. (Dh's choice) but that's okay. We need to both be ready and honestly I don't know that I am ready either. My body is still being weird post mc. I spotted for almost 2 weeks, had a week break, then my normal period last week and out of nowhere I'm not spotting again. I guess my body isn't quite ready yet either.

Super exciting for everyone in the third trimester! It won't be long now!

TTC, sorry your c-section is scheduled on Halloween! Hopefully you can get him moving a little sooner.

Luvy, I'm sorry you're in a hard place right now with your cycle being messed up and not feeling sure about TTC. I still have my moments where in not sure I want to keep trying, but at the same time not feeling sure that my family is complete uet, either.

I think if it were just these tests, I'd write it off as bad luck with evaps and crap like that, but I've been getting early pregnancy symptoms, too, and that's what's really been messing with my head. But AF is due Wednesday or Thursday, so I'll know soon enough, I guess.

Okay, so a bit has changed since I last posted. I wasn't pregnant last month, but apparently I am this month!

Aww spiffy!!!!! This makes my heart sooooo happy! I started crying I am so glad for you! I will keep you and baby in my prayers!

How is everyone? Luvy? Dano?

So my update is that I was diagnosed with cholestasis of pregnancy last week. I had been itching badly (like not sleeping anymore) for over a month and asked my OB to run the blood tests needed to diagnose when I was 33 weeks. They take 7-11 days to get results and last Monday, to my disbelief, the tests were positive. So I was sent to the MFM for that and my placenta prematurely calcifying and they put me on meds to control the bile acids and protect baby and since cholestasis has a high risk of stillbirth Iím delivering next Tuesday at 36+0. I have to get the steroids for his lungs...one shot tomorrow, one Friday, and Iíll be monitored with biophysical profiles Friday and Monday. Canít believe he will be here so soon!

Wow, TTC! What a whirlwind. I'm sure he'll be just fine at 36 weeks, but I know with your NICU history, it's probably hard not to worry. Did they say if the placental calcification was related to the choleostasis, or were they just two unrelated complications? I ask, because my daughter placenta was calcified when she was born, but I never had choleostasis. Anyway, I bet your nervous and and excited to be meeting him soon! Do you have a name picked out?

They donít know about the placenta for sure! Itís often caused by cholestasis but can also be caused by anemia or diabetes or even just randomly happen. And yes!!!! His name will be Ford Thomas!!!! I really hope with the shots he will be just fine but Iím awfully nervous about getting them lol!

Congrats Spiffy! Can't wait to see progress pictures!

TTC that is so exciting he will be here so soon! But I'm sure a little nerve wracking at the same time.

AFM, still spotting but still having regular periods. I don't know what the deal is. Maybe my hormones are off but I feel fine, good mood, good energy, so I don't know what's going on. I'm getting my blood drawn Monday to see if there's a possibility chance of tissue left behind. But would I still get my period if there was? Anyway, I don't know and I'm just to the point of "whatever". It's been a rough while. We sent the fetus in for testing and they said there wasn't enough dna to tell us anything. Even the gender! What?!!! I don't fully believe that but again, I'm just to the point of "whatever". I'm done over thinking everything. Time to just find joy in the journey. But I would really like to stop the spotting.

Iím so sorry Luvy. Thatís awful. So frustrating about them not testing. Thatís exactly what happened with my last miscarriage. It was ridiculous. The whole reason I had a d&c was because they could test....yeah right. Iím sorry youíre still dealing with so much.
