Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 17 years on Depo Provera
I have been on depo provera for seventeen years. I'm 34 DH is 36, ttc #1. I went off depo and onto the pill for two months in hopes of regulating my period, which I have only had about ten periods during those years. I have been obsessing over having a baby, and did fertility charting, but it made me so obsessed with every twinge. I was getting frustrated because I thought I would just bounce back from depo despite I've heard it takes at least a year to get pregnant. After months of obsessing I started being a grateful with DH for every little thing I wouldn't have, if we already had the baby - sleeping in, going to the beach with our two dogs at the drop of hat, going for breakfast or out for dinner so easily, and how much I enjoyed my garden, etc.
For the first time in June, I had what I would call a "regular" period, there wasn't any old blood clots, etc. It lasted the longest as well. I didn't think I even ovulated, because I didn't feel my usual side pains. I was especially amorous though and DH & I enjoyed each other and BD'd frequently, at least four times a week. I had mild cramping throughout the month which I thought was AF. I even put a tampon in CD26 morning just because I was so sure. Nothing. I've been counting my periods and they average 26 days, so when CD26 came up, and no aunt flo, I became suspicious.
Went home, tested, saw the FAINTEST line possible on internet cheapie and sat in shock and disbelief. Called DH and we both think it must have been something I ate to cause a false positive!! haha. We test with digital EPT and a definite PREGNANT! OMG I am elated to finally post this!! Best of luck and babydust to you all, hope this gives comfort to you post depo provera girls.
