Well, after 11 months of TTC, and a chemical in Feb. it has finally happened....I got my BFP. This hasn't been an easy journey, and I know it isn't over yet until I'm holding this baby...but I'm feeling pretty lucky so far. I stressed over my 11 day luteal phase until I read one lucky BFP's story on here and when she said that our bodies will compensate....and they do. For anyone with a thyroid problem and who is stressing about their levels I'm going to tell you this, and post my levels the week of conception....when I had my chemical in Feb my TSH was a 4.01. That is wayyyyy to high to conceive, and I truly believe that is the reason I lost the baby. My conception levels were:
FREE T3 5.0
TOTAL T4 8.4
Also, what I did different was I took B6, and prenatals, and Preseed with the applicator, did female on top, and legs up with the pillow underneath for an hour each time.
When I had my chemical I had tons of pregnancy symptoms, so this month I thought I was out because I had a lot less than before, but all that matters is the BFP. Not the symptoms.
3DPO-crampy, terrible gas,pinching in uterus,bloated
4DPO-pinching,gassy,bad bachache,vivid dream about a clown(which I hate),itchy skin,bloated
6DPO-wet cm,bachache, it was my best friend's wedding and I had a few drinks, and didn't get buzzed at all, and I mean nothing...which is unusual because I'm usually a 1 beer drunk type of chick.
7DPO-cramps, sharp right bb pain lasted a minute, sharp pain shooting down my left leg for about a minute, right ear ache, and severe short cramp in am. I think this was implantation day, and I never get implantation bleeding so who knows. Also, my friend told me that she never took baby aspirin to thin her blood for implantation, she just had a drink on 5-9 DPO and she has 3 kids so I'm up for anything after 11 months, and I got my BFP. Plus big fight with DH and I cried as I slammed the door on my way out which I never do. The crying, not the slamming....lol.
8DPO-same symptoms-BFN not a shadow
9DPO-daughters 2nd birthday so too busy to notice anything different BFN.
10DPO-endocrinology appointment and all I do is bitch about being not pregnant... haha my poor endo. BFN in am. Poas in pm and fall asleep before I look at it because I'm out....af is due tmrw so why look, right?
11DPO-wake up and groggily look at poas from last night....faint line...internet cheapie, so I tear out the cabinets in all bathrooms because I KNOW I have a dollar store test somewhere...meanwhile I dig 10DPO am poas out of the trash(oh, yes I did) and I see a line....veryyyyy faint, but there. Can't find the dollar store one so I run and get a CBE digital....comes up in 1 min PREGNANT. Called my ob, and ordered a beta for today. Then because the lines were faint, and I'm crazy I run to the dollar store... CBE in pocketbook....and buy 2 test to see how dark one is and save one for tmrw, or the next day.(yeah,right)
So, it can happen!
Good luck to everyone and if you don't get a bfp on 9dpo it doesn't mean anything......
