So I lost my daughter almost 7 months ago. She died 6 days after birth from trisomy 18. We finally started trying again and I am so nervous.
I ovulated March 26. I have been taking pregnancy test since last week because, for the first time, I feel pregnant. I feel silly saying it, but I really feel different. I am nauseous and tired and have some breast tenderness and fatigue.
Last week I had what I thought was a slight positive. But it was only one little test, and the rest were clear negatives. Then yesterday thought I saw a slight line. Later that night, it was still there. My husband even saw it, but he refuses to see it as positive until another test can confirm it. I tried to digital clear blue thinking it would give me an easy answer, but it says not pregnant. My AF is due in two days and I am freaking out. If I am not pregnant, yes, I will be very devastated, but I have been having bad headaches and I can only take my migraine medicine if I am not pregnant. I really believe I am, but I am worried I am going nuts. Maybe those lines are evaporation lines. Why won't any other test come back positive. I feel silly asking for a blood test, but I will if I have to. I felt so sure I even starting knitting for the first time since I lost my daughter. I want a baby so bad. I did just find out my thyroid medication needs adjustment but I don't know if it needs changing because of normal stuff, or if maybe it is a sign I am pregnant. Maybe the symptoms of the thyroid are making me think I am pregnant.
I could use advice. Anyone, please. I am so emotional about all this and I have very few people I can talk to. My husband is supportive, but is very nervous about all this and we are not telling people we are trying after everything that happened to us. We don't want to get people's hopes up if I a MC or if something is wrong. It's put me in a very lonely place and I feel like I am losing it.
Awww, first of all Viperbunny. I am sorry for your loss, I can't even imagine losing a child after giving birth at full term.
First of all, you are definitely in the right place as the ladies on here are all amazing and so supportive! I 100% know what you mean about needing people to talk to, my hubby is supportive too and wants us to get pregnant again after our miscarriage as much as I do...but when it comes to talking about how sad and scared I feel sometimes I feel like he worries about me too much so it is nice to vent on here!
As to your question, your symptoms all sound very promising! Do you think you could take another test in the morning and take a picture and post it on here? Us ladies love to squint at BFP lines!
I got my BFP this morning! So excited! I just knew I felt pregnant, even if the tests didn't want to agree until today. I was joking with my husband the other day that if I were pregnant he had to go and buy me Mc Donald's breakfast, so I just woke him up and told him he owed me one. lol. He is excited. We both are. I am worried, my doctor called yesterday to tell me my thyroid medication needed adjustment but never called in the dosage. She's not in until Wednesday, so I hope one day will be okay.
And my daughter was very premature...29 weeks, so I can't take credit for going full term, just a good part of the way there.
Thank you for the support. I am just over the moon...too bad I can't tell anyone of my family yet, but the due date calculator put the due date about Christmas Eve! I'm going to go do cartwheels
hey ViperBunny!! what a lovely news!! i am so sorry for your loss and i can't imagine what you two have been through.. but what a wonderful news! when you know you know!! i hope this time it will all be perfect!
