UPDATE: + HPT! .....HELP Almost positive OPK- CD 7

Postby Veronica86 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 6:38 pm

Ok girls I'm officially confused. You might remember that I suspected I had a chemical pregnancy last cycle... lots of faint positives that I thought could also be evaps. Anyways, I didn't get blood tests so I didn't know for sure.

I started bleeding on 3/16 (CD 1). It was mostly like a normal period, with a little more cramping than normal. I stopped bleeding around CD 4/5 (just some spotting). Today I'm at CD 7 and decided to start using my OPK's just in case my cycle was off after the (possible) chemical pregnancy.

The pic below shows my OPK from this morning (very dark) and I just took another this evening with diluted urine. It's almost positive. Since I started using OPK's (15 cycles) my positives have come anywhere between CD 11-CD 14. NEVER EVER this early. To top it all off- I'm spotting again.. saw a little blood this morning mixed with brown CM, and now I have even more coming out and I'm having moderate lower back pain.

I have NO idea what is happening. Can anyone offer some insight?

I took a wondfo and it's positive. I am techincally 21 DPO.. not CD 7. This obviously isn't a viable pregnancy right??? The line is so faint

Hey. Are you having any pain? Ectopic pregnancies are painful. Also you can look up some other signs of it online.
Lots of women bleed while pregnant or she'd some blood near period time. I would call your Obgyn today and let them know the story so they can assist. This could all be fine and you could have a healthy baby!!

Well, I can't for sure what's going on with you if it's a miscarriage or just early pregnancy bleeding. I have a similar story but it ended in miscarriage. I had a normal period when it was expected and a negative hpt the day before, then had a positive opk on CD 9 which was super early. A week later I had horrible pain and bloating and started bleeding. I found out I was pregnant and miscarrying at the hospital. I tested at home that night and had the darkest blazing positive frer. It was devastating and I really hope you're not experiencing the same thing :(

Hi ladies..

Thanks for responding. I'm not having any sort of ectopic pain at this point (I googled symptoms and know what to look out for). I'm not spotting anymore and am having light lower back pain and bloating+ headaches. (Bloating and headaches have been happening all week.. assumed it was AF symptoms or something!)

My FMU test this morning is just as dark as last nights test which can't be good.. I was hoping for much darker :( I'm trying to get in touch with my Dr but her office isn't open yet. I plan to get blood tests done and progesterone check as soon as she will allow it.. will keep you all updated.

Top test is from last night, bottom 2 are FMU from this morning...

And exactly one week ago today I took these tests at 15 DPO on the morning my "AF" started.. wondfo dried to have an evap/shadow line.. FRER was definitely BFN.

Veronica, is it possible that you're in fact pregnant & just had some bleeding which is very common in early stages of pregnancy?? Doesn't mean its anything bad, or ectopic, could just be a little bean getting comfy in there with some pregnancy bleeding you may have thought was AF? Hoping so hard for you xxxxx

Thanks for the well wishes everyone.. I have a Dr's appointment scheduled at 2pm today (4 hours from now). The advice nurse I spoke to said there is no reason to worry about an ectopic/MC at this point because I'm not bleeding at all anymore. She said weird bleeding happens in early pregnancy.I didn't go into detail with her about my lines not being very dark, but at least I'll have a starting point with my HCG blood tests today. Nothing I can do but wait and pray no more spotting occurs!!

This is great news, stay positive. Also, I think your chart still looks pretty high on the temp side. I guess I don't know your pattern but I'm in the very low 97 range 97.0-97.3 during cd3-8. I am sending you good vibes for your little bean to stick.

That's the other issue.. my temps post-O are usually in the 98's.. so my temps are definitely low. I'll need all the prayers and positive vibes you girls are willing to send me <3

Hi ladies..

As expected, this pregnancy is not going to end well. My HCG came back at 38 and my Progesterone is only 0.2... YIKES! Should be at least 11.

I am SO annoyed by my Dr. I saw the results before hand, since they were sent to my patient portal.. so I knew it was going to be bad news.

Here's how my phone call went when the Dr's assistant called.
Her: "Hi Veronica, you're pregnant! The dr just wants you to get tested tomorrow to make sure things are doubling"
Me: "Did you not see my progesterone??"
Her: "Um no, the Dr didn't make note about your progesterone"
Me: "It's extremely low.. can I talk to her?"
Her: "She's very busy, but I'm sure if anything was wrong she would have made a note on it"
Me: "Do you not see what the normal levels should be? I'm at least 50 times lower on where I should be in order to sustain a pregnancy"
Her: "Ok I'll try to have her call you but I can't make any promises since she's so busy"
Me: "Yes, please have her call me because I'm pretty sure I'm miscarrying, or will be soon and I have questions for her"

Seriously?! Am I taking crazy pills? I'm not a progesterone expert but that is a TERRIBLE number right?! If I wasn't aware of what progesterone is I'd be happy based on that call, thinking I may have a healthy pregnancy. The worst part is, the Dr yesterday didn't even add progesterone to my blood work. I was walking out and noticed, and made them add it. How does she not realize how important that is??

I'm so sorry :( i can't imagine how emotionally draining all this is...that nurse needs to be fired seriously i HATE how unempathetic some nurses/drs are!!! Makes me SO mad!!!

A silver lining at least is that you guys can get pregnant naturally, as hard as this bit is i hope you have your sticky rainbow baby soon xxxxx

Veronica,

I am so sorry you are going through this!!! I had a similar experience with the exception of the bleeding. I would have them test the progesterone again. I don't want to get your hopes up but it is possible that maybe they entered it incorrectly or something. I once had them tell me my blood test came back negative and I made them retest it because I had seven positive home pregnancy tests.

Is it possible that you implanted when AF was supposed to start?

The wait and see is the worst thing ever. I'm so sorry you have to do it at all!
