Hope for those with no BFP! I'm Pregnant... Finally!

Postby jiggyjiggybumbum » Wed Feb 06, 2008 12:15 am

I thought I would post this on all the pregnancy sites (that I know we all read religiously) so that every woman out there looking for hope could find it. It might be a little long but If you’re in the same situation I was in. Which was not being able to get a HPT to turn out a positive but knowing in your heart that you are pregnant, than trust me it’s worth the read. I know you’ve read it time and time again but its not a load of bull no matter what anyone tells you (family, friends, doctors) “You know your body better than anyone!” Never ignore or let someone talk you out of your intuition.

It all started about 4 weeks before actual conception (Dec. 4th 2007). I was taking Yaz BC pills continually ( as in skipping the placebos) along with a painkiller and an anti inflammatory drug, daily as a combination of pills to stunt my Endometriosis until I could afford a laparoscopy to prove indefinitely that I did indeed have Endometriosis and be treated permanently. As I have done plenty times before I did not think ahead that I would be running out that month and should’ve had an scheduled an appointment ready to re-up, but I didn’t and the soonest I could get my prescription was Dec. 13th. Well generally when I stop taking BCP my period will start shortly because it so rarely has the opportunity and it did on Dec. 12th. On the 13th I got my BCP and started taking them which caused my period to stop within 3 days (the 15th). For some ungodly reason I got the feeling I should stop taking them again at that point (thinking I was Prego) call it divine intervention. So I stopped and on the 19th of Dec. I started yet another period or the first one continued IDK. Never the less I had unprotected sex at 3 am on the 29th of Dec and 1 am on the 3rd of Jan. ironically these two dates fall on opposite ends of the spectrum for ovulation based on both LMP and a 28-32 day cycle. For the next 41/2 weeks I would test relentlessly to no avail. I began to understand that before it was intuition telling me that I would become pregnant and that I hadn’t actually been pregnant when I thought there for I was testing early (if that makes sense). But on the 10th the bleeding started first spotting then nothing then heavy then nothing when I wasn’t bleeding I was cramping, but never at the same time. This went on for a day and a half then stopped and was replaced with discharge. Then one night 3 days later I had terrible cramping for about 30 mins 6 hrs after that I got up to go to the bathroom and the min I stood up blood literally poured out of me (like it had been backed up) I was sure it was early miscarriage… I was hysterical (I’m crying now thinking about it ). I went to the doc the next morning (not my regular) and he did a urine it was negative obviously I hadn’t gotten a pos yet why would he. So he told me I miscarried after making it very clear that being 22 and single I had no business being pregnant anyways he was like 80 yrs old, and prescribed me BCP (with I didn’t take, that guy was an @ss). Over the next 3 weeks I continued to test neg after neg, but my symptoms continued to get stronger! Breasts & nipples were very sore, nausea but only every once in awhile, discharge, both bulging blue and spider veins in arms breasts and legs, headaches which are very abnormal for me, the back of my left leg was really sore on and off, and slight cramping as specially in lower left abdomen, temp high, ingrown hairs and even my linea nigra (line from belly button to pubic bone showed up) very early on. I knew I was pregnant still I just did, but no one believed me! A few days ago Feb. 2nd tested neg on the 3rd evap, then another 2 evaps on the 4th . That was one too many evaps for me so I went to the doc this one was no better than the last she mocked me and judged my personal life… terrible bed side manor! I got a neg urine test so she said at 6 weeks from LMP there was no possible way I could be pregnant ( she didn’t know what HPT meant and didn’t know what a linea nigra was she said everyone has that line… no) she was a moron to say the least. But I demanded a blood test and got it! This morning the 5th (one day shy of 7 weeks past LMP) I woke up and tested another very light line appeared but a line none the less and another this afternoon and another tonight! Come back tomorrow and I will let you know my blood test results! Although I'm pretty sure they will be pos!

Keep you’re head up cause its very possible for it to take a little longer to get the result you want!
p.s. with my first pregnancy it took at least 5 weeks past LMP as I recall to get a light positive on a first response early result!!!
