Hi ladies... I'm new although I have been lurking for quite some time! I recently had a m/c that started on Oct.2, 2012. My beta was 292 at that time, and then a week later it was 105. I never went back for another blood test after that bc I figured it was going down at an average rate. I was still having pos OPK's for almost 2 weeks after the m/c and finally they went to neg. A few days later I had EWCM, took another OPK and it was positive. I'm pretty sure I ovulated (nipples were sore afterwards, as usual). My question is this: I just took a FRER (which btw was a faint positive when my beta was 9 confirmed by blood test)... and have another faint positive line, however, my wondfo tests are still negative. Do you think this could be a new pregnancy or left over from the old one? It's been 3 weeks, 2 days since I started bleeding. I did not have a D&C an miscarried naturally. I was supposedly 7 weeks but the pregnancy was actually never confirmed on US so not sure what happened exactly. All I know I that my uterus was empty at my 7 week appointment. any thoughts/opinions would be so helpful
I'm not really sure, but I hope it's a new healthy pregnancy!
Me too girl. I feel like I'm reliving the last pregnancy all over again, it's hell lol. I'm such a POAS addict. I ordered a bunch of internet cheapies but they just aren't as good as the FRER. To get a faint positive when my beta was 7 is so crazy to me. Most people dont get a blood test that early but I was bleeding so I went to the ER and that's how I found out it was a 7. I proceeded to bleed every month around the same time my period was due, so if I wasn't trying I never would've known I was even pregnant. I keep looking up online how long it takes for your beta to drop and most say 2 weeks. And mine was never high to begin with (300 3 weeks ago) so I can't imagine it would still be hanging around! Hate waiting! lol
Oh, i am an addict too! i think i tested last month at 7DPO! I got a bunch of the Internet cheapies too, from early-pregnancy-tests.com, they are pretty good, I've always got a pretty early result on them. I don't normally buy the FRER because I go through a lot of tests...DH doesn't need to know that! Hehe!
Keep testing, and I would call your OBGYN to get a blood test! Do you have a pic of the test?
I got my first faint pos (with my first pregnancy at 6 dpo!!! pscyho that i was even testing that early!) No one could see the line except me and DH thought I was crazy lol. I don't have a pic of the test :/ I can see the line without really "looking" for it but it's def not a BFP. I'm just not sure if it's a "new" positive or an "old" positive. I just don't see how it would be 3 weeks later and my beta is still above 5 (I'm assuming since i have a faint pos). I have a whole bag of wondfo's. I took THREE today! I am completely crazy. I splurged and bought a 3 pack of FRER bc I feel like it's easier to monitor the color of the lines on those lol and I've already used 2 of them. I need an intervention lol. I doesn't help that I'm having all the same symptoms. Mostly just really watery/wet CM and i keep getting shooting pains in bbs near my armpits. My left ovary/side has been constantly achy since yesterday. It seems SO early for any of this to be going on so i'm wondering if that's just normal for me since I've only been off the pill for a few months. Idk :/
I was a mess after my mc on sep 15, and I used opks after to try not to then was freaking out feeling like I was peego again. One day it felt like pms and the next like I was prego again. I was relieved finally get af, but only because I was still working with my doc on getting my thyroid meds right. Hopefully you will get a bfp.since you're trying. I know 4 women that had an early mc the first.time.then went on to have babies no probs. 2 of them I heard about after telling them what I was going through. It sucks that we have had losses but it was comforting to hear how common it can for a mc to happen but not cause any issues for having babies after one. Hope we all have good luck.
Yes I totally understand how you feel, I was so excited. I guess God spared me the grief of actually having it confirmed by seeing a sac (never did see one). I just took another wondfo and I see a faint line that I haven't seen before. Could be my mind playing tricks on me! Only time will tell. I am sorry for your loss as well. I'm def ready to move on and keep trying!
Symptom wise it's actually not too early for some, because they are caused by progesterone and estrogen. In early pregnancy as soon as the egg is fertilized the body releases progesterone and estrogen. It's just the hGC that isn't released until implantation!
