Still thinking of you, Spiffy! Crossing my fingers that you get a clear answer soon.

So exciting about your scan, Ricschick!

This waiting is hard...

Easier knowing that we are not in this alone.

Spiffy - thinking of you!

Elmum - how are you feeling?

Karoolia - I just drove through Iowa

Rics - any pregnancy symptoms yet?

Lady - what dpo are you now?

Loves - how have you been?

Alligator - what was that again....this patience thing lol. Hang in there girl O will be here sooner or later

We did not bd yet. I don't think O is imminent anyway. Dh's back hurts and I fell asleep while putting DS down. So we just both felt too lazy. We have a weekend getaway for a friends birthday planned. It is the first time ever that DS will spend the night without me. First night with DH second with grammy (dhs mom). He'll be fine, the question is when he will go to bed as I am the only one who puts him to sleep
So while I would love to O early it would be best if I o sometime next week as it will be hard to get any bding done this weekend. maybe DH and i will sneak away into the woods haha. I'll leave you all with that image good night.

LOL mom15 - good luck! You gotta do what you gotta do to get BD in. In chatting with friends I'm realizing DH and I are BD a lot more than most ppl...even our other friends TTC. I think it's because they already have kids and it makes it a lot harder! We don't have much else going on at home ha.

Mom15- feeling okay. Thanks for checking.
I thought I O'd around 9/4. So, I was working off of that and feeling better just thinking that my body is getting back to a new normal.
It has been 4 weeks and 2 days since we lost our daughter at 17+ weeks. After 3 days of consistent negative LH tests last week, I ended up getting a positive LH surge test again this weekend, which worried me that my body was still confused. Knowing I would not be ovulating again. I looked it up and saw that the LH test can also pick up HCG. I took a pregnancy test and got a BFP. I've tested every day since and still am getting a BFP. Although, I am not confident that I am actually pregnant and worried that it's just leftover HCG from the recent pregnancy. I've read that the HCG should be gone by now, because I did deliver the baby intact and delivered the placenta. I just need to wait until the 18th to test again. But, it's hard not to know.

My goodness, elmum. What a rollercoaster for you. I'll share my story as it may be helpful to you.

I MC (d&c at 8.5 weeks) on August 2. We found out baby had no heartbeat on July 20, tried the medication option which did not entirely work, so my levels were dropping for a week and a half before the d&c was needed. A week after d&c I still tested positive on HPT and took OPKs and those were also positive, likely because of HCG. I was taking IC's at this point not wanting to waste money on expensive tests. I got a negative IC HPT on August 18 and I was happy!! A week or so later I got a positive OPK and that combined with a temp rise, looks like I ovulated on August 26. Started having weird pregnancy symptoms, my breast pain returned (it had gone away) and increased CM, same I had with my pregnancy. Took an IC and thought I saw a faint positive (I was driving myself crazy) so I took a FRER and got a vvvvvfl. The line got slightly darker but was still vvfl. It then would get lighter...it was so confusing and I wasted probably $70 on FRER, but I never got a hint of another line on an IC. I am not sure if it was residual from the MC, or a chemical, but AF arrived 5 weeks and 1 day after the d&c (truly the worst period I have ever had, so painful). It can take some women a lot of time for HCG to go to zero, and it can still fluctuate...the normal I think is 2-8 weeks (a large disparity!)

I hope for you this is a new pregnancy...fx!! xo
