Congratulations mglupe! Jumping in from another TTC thread. I had horrific blinding vomit inducing migraines through puberty and they returned my first trimester (at 5weeks) with my DS, I didn’t want to take meds and acupuncture (three sessions over around 12 days) was magic for me. 70% better after the first session. But I saw a practitioner who specialises in TTC and preg- make sure you research and get someone who really knows what they’re doing before you spend the money... too many people advertise that don’t specialise. Good luck! X

Hi!
I am there too! I don’t want to tell my partner because I want it to be a surprise if I am, so I am deep in my own thoughts!!
My symptoms have been nausea. I am confused about this though. Some places say that this is a sign, but some say that it starts in week 6 and not now.

I also had some spotting about 6 days after ovulation. At the time I didn’t know about the spotting, so I dismissed it, even though I thought it was weird. I never had spotting as part of my period.

I tested the other day because my nausea was so strong that I just thought it had to be and that regardless of being a week before my period, it would say positive, but it was negative. But I have since read so many blogs that say so many things can give a false negative, being way too soon, which I was, and drinking a whole heap of water before hand, which I did.
I know this sounds crazy, but I just feel that I am. I know if I am not I will be super disappointed but I just feel like my body is telling me yes.

This wait is so hard!!!

Mglupe, have you tried soaking in a bath and putting a cold/wet wash cloth on your head? It’s so hard when you get sick or headaches and you can’t take anything strong, but the upside is you can’t take anything strong because YOURE PREGNANT!!! Woo! I hope it passes soon x

Jumping in here! I suffer from migraines and I will fill my tub up with hot water and put my feet in it and then put an ice pack on the back of my neck. It sounds funny but it has helped me a lot...It draws the migraine out! Plus, no medication needed :) ps. Congrats on the pregnancy!!

Oh ladies, shia and mglupe, I'm so so sad for you both I'm just sitting here in tears. I was behind on this thread so I read both of your positive updates and I was just sitting here with chills I was so happy and excited to be reading positive updates. Mglupe I was just so thrilled you finally got your bfp, I know you have been trying for ages, and shia for you to get a bfp from a chance visit was amazing. I wish I had just stopped there and not kept reading and I know how much you both wish you could rewrite the story. My heart goes out to both of you and I'm sending you all the strength I can to make it through this heartache. Mglupe I don't have much advice other than don't lose hope. Getting a bfp was a step in the right direction and maybe just one more tweak on meds or routine will bring a sticky bean to you. sending you baby dust!

Shia there is a bit more I can say to you since we are in such similar places. I'm also still bfing and I go a bfp at the end of february but sadly I lost that baby. I had betas done a few days after I started bleeding and my hcg was 23 and progesterone was 8. I was having short luteal phases due to breast feeding and I'm sure thats what caused the low progesterone and lead to the miscarriage. I decided to try and night wean Liam because I know the night nursing can have a big effect on fertility. I got a bfn the next cycle and had a 9 day lp which was a slight improvement over8 days like it was before. I decided to start taking vitamin b6 100mg after ovulation because I have read that it can help suppress prolactin and raise progesterone and lengthen lp. I started taking it last cycle and I got my bfp! I'm currently 4.5 weeks so I'm very early still but My hcg has been doubling and my last progesterone was at 27! I'm still taking the b6 and will continue until at least 12 weeks. I hope this story gives you hope that maybe your body just wasn't quite ready to be pregnant again but that you are very close. I have heard that time is the best solution for regulating things postpartum and hopefully you just need another couple months for your body to be ready. I would highly recommend the b6 also since it can't hurt. Sending you baby dust!
