Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP with Baby #3 (after 3 miscarriages)
DH and I have been ttc#3 for several months now. We m/c back in May, then again on August 31 and after so, dh made the ultimate decision. He did NOT want to TTC anymore for a while. I was heartbroken. We screamed and fought LITERALLY for the first time in our marraige. I did want to give up... not yet. We agreed (while I was still miscarrying) that we would hold off til Christmas.
Each of my pregnancies (all 6) had been products of charting, temping and my best friend and worst enemy- CLOMID. Of 6 pregnancies, I had 2 daughters- Brianna, and Gracie. So this month, I did not chart, temp, take clomid, nor test with opks.
AF usually shows up 26-28 days like clockwork, even after miscarraiges. So days before CD 26 I started testing with FMU *just in case* I wasn't really expecting much. On CD 25 (which was September 25th) I got a BFP. I was in SHOCK. I had NEVER EVER gotton pregnant without Clomid's help. I scanned my hpt and asked all of my online friends to PLEASE tell me if it was an evap line or a Bfp. Most agreed, it was a BFP. I ran out to walgreens and got a digital test. Bingo- Pregnant :-)
So early on cd26- the day AF was due I called my OB who sent me straight to the lab. I got my results back just before 6pm at night. My quant. beta was at 128 :-) I am not sure how many dpo I was, but from previous charts my Ob was thinking 12 or so. So 128 was a great number! As I write this to you, it is CD27... my first U/S will be around 7 weeks on October 11th. I will be due June 7, 2006 :-) Talk about a wonderful cycle.
