Bassy my heart is breaking for you! You sound very strong but I hope you are doing okay. Chemicals are miscarriages too and I am very sorry your little bean didnt stick!

Some people say not to test early because chemicals are big heartbreaks. But I disagree. This could have been just one of the statistics. But it could be good info for you ob/gyn to help you have a happy healthy 9 months next time.

Best luck to you! I hope everyone else is doing still doing well.

Thank you so much KC =) You are a sweetheart!

I went back to the DR yesterday and she confirmed my HCG levels were now down to <2. So def an early miscarriage, but at least it left my system quickly, I am still bleeding a bit since Saturday so I think I am to treat this as a period (today being cycle day 3 - Its already Monday here in Oz 8) ). Dr didnt really say much, just that its too difficult to determine what actually went wrong. However she said it was good that I got pregnant in the first place! For some reason the bean just didnt stick. My darkest HPT was CD13, and then it got lighter morning of CD14.. so somewhere during that time it just started to come undone. She also mentioned that its possible to be more fertile after a miscarriage and that theres no reason why we couldn't begin trying again straight away. I'm just now hoping that my cycle stays relatively normal, i'll start OPK testing from CD10.. maybe this will make my cycles 28 days instead of 32? Fingers crossed!

I have my referral to see my gyno on February 15. I had to see here for a few years as I kept getting abnormal papsmears since i was a teen. They eventually cleared up last year - I almost had to get that surgery done where they burn the cells off. She's a lovely lady and said "when you start trying for a bub, come and see me!" So i'll see her and give her all my results, maybe she can check the thickness of my uterine lining.. its hard not to wonder!

I've since read about taking prenatals, but also a vitamin B complex too? Read somewhere that some women take more B6 and B12 after miscarriages.. I am such a nerd, i cant help myself but research absolutely everything!!

I hope all you ladies are doing well and hope you dont mind if i stay on this board with you all!

Hope you're feeling good KC!! I'd love to see a pic of your latest HPT :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I posted all my tests so far. I tested twice on 13dpo as I switched over from first response tests to the cheap strips. I also used an opk test just to see. It tested positive. Ive heard people can use those as pregnancy tests and it worked.

Yesterday was my missed period. Today I woke up with weird cramps. I would say they feel about half AF like and half gas but I hadnt eaten anything. I panicked and took my 15dpo test. It still came out darker than yesterday. Cramps have been off and on and lessened after going on a 1 mile jog. I know cramps are normal during pregnancy, Im just nervous!

I was planning on staying quiet at work. I wanted to wait for 8-10 weeks to tell them. (Longer if I could). I didnt want to get placed on light duty. But Im realizing now that I should probably say something asap.

Hola!

KC - loving those lines! Looking super good! And I think you should def say something at work, it's not easy being a PO, struggling with unruly people and caring for your lil bean.

Baby - I'm adding B complex for LH support, started yesterday.

I ordered 50 cheapies... lol - hope We can get more BD this cycle.

Sulica - I have also added B complex...

Any opinions on baby aspirin? Have read loads about it. Obviously I am not diagnosed with having a blood clotting disorder. But all the fuss about aspirin increasing blood flow and possibly helping to thicken the uteros lining gets me interested. For some reason the little bean wouldn't stick, and my Lp phase is generally 15 days.. so no problems with having a short LP..

Hi! Just started my 2nd cycle ttc #1! AF arrived Feb4 :( and I'm hoping this next cycle is the one. After being told by both my Mom and sister that they conceived their first cycles after being on the pill I am already worrying (silly, know). Would love to connect with others and provide support during that 2WW!

I used pineapple on 1-5 dpo. It works like aprin in a natural way. It thins your blood and it suppose to aid in implantation.

Sulica- I would google for more details. But pineapples are loaded with bromelain. Its a natuarl blood thinner. Most of the bromelain is in the core of the pineapple. I read to buy a pineapple when you have a confirmed ovulation. Cut into pieces and make sure there is part of the core on each piece. I ate two pieces a day several hours apart on 1-5 dpo. Some websites say to keep eating through 10dpo but some say to stop at 5dpo. On 5dpo I ate way too much by accident. My face started tingling and got super red.

Hope this helps you! My bean is doing good I hope. First doctor appointment is in 10days. Lines have gotten darker than the control line and I keep testing every other day.

Keep in touch ladies, good luck this month!

Hey! Sorry I dropped out for a bit. I've been having lots of EWCM so O should be any day now. Unfortunately DH has come down with some sort of virus so it's not looking like our chances are good this cycle. When do you usually O?

I got my pineapple ready! I usually Ovulate CD16-CD18. My opks are starting to look a little darker but they never ever get as dark at the control line even if I ovulate.

My DF is taking Fertilaid for men. He feels terribly bad that we couldn't performed last month on O day.
