Hello, I'm Stacy. I signed up to this board in May because I was pregnant with my 5th baby that we ended up losing in June. This was my 3rd miscarriage and I just turned 42. That would have been our first baby together, (we both have children from previous marriages). I think I may be pregnant again; I have suspected this since Mon., which would have been, my guess, about 6 DPO. In retrospect, I tried on a pair of pants on Sat. night and they wouldn't button without cutting me in two, so I guess this would have been the first indication.
Mon. my breasts started to ache slightly and that would have been the third day of feeling "off". Wed., I had the "look but don't touch" feeling in my breasts and I was really cramping. Today, Thurs., I had very light spotting and much cramping, which I think was implantation. I'm not due to have my period until Oct. 5, as my cycle runs 25 days now, since I lost the baby in June. I have taken 3 PT, 2 came up VERY shadowy during the first 3 mins, then there was a VERY light line after the recommended 10 mins, after they dried for a while. My last cycle was Sept. 10-14, a very short period because I usually bleed for 8 days.
I have a lot of the symptoms, headache, backache, fatigue, mood swings, insatiably hungry, heightened smell, nausea, increased sex drive, nasal drip/congestion, diarrhea, bloating and the all over feeling of "feeling off" or "feeling pregnant". My nipples are darker and harden very quickly, they are also a more protruding shape, as if getting ready to breastfeed. Also, I thought I had a yeast infection yesterday because of the vaginal discharge. I really hope this is not TMI here.
So, I guess I just needed some advice here and support, as I'm kinda freaking out. We never thought we would get pregnant in the first place because I have an autoimmune disease called Scleroderma. I also had Type 2 Diabetes, but have beat it, due to losing 70 pounds and changing my lifestyle. We are not preventing, but we're not trying either. So many questions/unknowns, geezh, I hate the TWW!
