BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after MMC

I hope this BFP story turns into a LO story in December. I'm feeling so tentatively happy and mixed up and grateful to the ladies who shared their stories on here. It helped me keep my hopes up and got my through the TTC slog!! (it is a hard slog sometimes). I had my MMC in November last year - didn't know anything was wrong until my 12 week scan, had lost it at 8 weeks. I had an ERPC and then it took ages -48 days for my cycle to return. Before this my AF's were irregular anyway - maybe about 30-35 days but had been lengthening up to 40 and I was worried about what on earth was going on. So after the first AF post MC my cycle seemed to be almost text-book about 28-29 days - which was strange but I hoped would help our chances. I still seemed to be ovulating fairly late though - so had started to think about seeing the Dr and asking if I had a luteal phase problem. Anyway this month was the month I was going to go to the Dr and pester them into giving me clomid or progesterone or something to make me feel I was doing my utmost to help things along. For the year we'd been trying (excluding the 3 months I was pg) I had been testing with OPKs. Post MC I had ordered pre-seed and instead softcups but the DH got fed up with the pre-seed and asked to go back to au naturel lol! I found the softcups handy (a little uncomfortable) for being able to get up soon after dtd and not feeling guilty for going about your normal day. I also took l-arginine, a good multi vit, omega 3, 6, and 9, and I'm not religious but I did sometimes ask the little star we lost to help us to get to this point. I also read the SMEP and tried to follow the guidelines for us at the older end of the TTC gang (37 and partner 38). Anyway - I felt much more pregnant the other months that I had BFN's so I didn't trust my symptoms at all this time. I did notice that I was bloated and my ankles were starting to swell about 7 DPO. At around the same time (warning tmi) I got a bit constipated and was laughing at being the same as another story on here who called her BM's deer pellets lol! I also had to go to bed at 20.30 because I was so tired at DPO 12. Got BFN on 9 DPO and again on 11 DPO, but still felt something was 'up', so decided to try at 14 DPO and got a faint but undeniable line. It was a fairly cheap test so the next day bought the clearblue conception indicator tests and took another cheapish test that day (as couldn't test fmu) and it was slightly darker. Then tested with the Clearblue today and got the longed for word 'Pregnant' and weeks since conception 1-2. Just hope that this is a happy and healthy 9 mths and that some of my worries and fears will go away when I get that first scan. Thank you and don't give up. I was as low as it's possible to be with my loss and I want to tell people who've felt that to not give up, believe in your strength and do whatever you have to to get through the 2ww - most of all be kind and gentle to yourself and keep hoping. xxxx
