Hi! Im back and scared!

Postby jajumommy2015 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 8:25 pm

Ive been on this site since 2007. My name used to be jajumommy2000, but I forgot my password and yahoo kicked me out of my email address so I cant even get a new password!!!

Anyway, around 2009 I was unexpectedly pg and thrilled!!!I ended up blighted ovum at 5w6d.

I am now 3w6d and scared it will happen again. Im not as young as I used to be. Ive read, and been told, that while I may be able to get pg, m/c at my age is prevalent.

DH and I had to do IUI with donor sperm since he had a V 18 years ago and a reversal wouldn't have worked, at least not in our time frame. This was our 4th month and it worked!!! We are thrilled! I took tests yesterday and today. The first CBE digi yesterday morning showed not pregnant. Then I read frer is more sensitive so I took one of those last night. It was positive!! I also took a Walmart cheapie that was negative. But, I figured frer is more sensitive than a cheapie so all was good. had a few more tests so I took a frer this morning and while it was a BFP, it was fainter than last night. I also took another cheapie and it was a BFP!!! So, while frer was fainter, cheapie was BFP I figure Im good. Ive had heartburn and nausea off and on for a few days. Ive also had pinching in my uterus area. But, this afternoon I had dull cramps for about 3 hours. They seem to be gone, but I still worry. Doc sent me for hcg and progesterone levels today. Im low on P, so I am on supplements. She will re-do the levels next week. Not sure why not in a few days, but whatever. I can also call my regular OB tomorrow if my numbers are good to make an appt.

Im kind of hoping for twins! I had 2 HUGE (23 and 24) follicles at my scan before trigger, so hopefully both released an egg! So, I am cautiously optimistic. My DH wont let me tell anyone but my sister and best friend. I told people in 3 of my groups on FB, but they are OL friends, not RL. So, I still pin lots of stuff to a secret board. We are going back home this weekend and it will be torture not to tell my mom!!!!

Anyone else have fainter tests and still be fine?

First, congrats! I managed to restrain myself and only used two tests this time around, a cheapie and a digital. The cheapie was a real squinter and that definitely had me worrying. But i worried over nothing as everything has been great this pregnancy! :)

Thanks my hcg was 31 at 13dpiui. Not as high as she wants, but she's not worried.

I am of course. I went and got more frer, line and digi, and they were both positive. The cbe weeks estimator was still not pregnant last night, but if levels double every 48-72 hours, it shouldnt show until tomorrow sometime. I have one left, so ill take it in the am. Im still cramping and had some heartburn, so its like mixed signals, lol.
