Alright, I spent part of the day queasy so I feel a bit safer posting this.
My cycle started on December 9th with a miscarriage. I had geared up to ovulate repeatedly, but we weren't really having sex this cycle. I thought on January 9th that it was another fake out ovulation. DH just happened to want sex that day, and I believe I was like, "Ugh, whatever, just hurry up." And he takes what he can get so he was happy. lol
I considered like all the other "thought it might be O" days I had that maybe I did O, so I would start looking at 9 dpo for AF signs. This last time at 9 DPO I had my typical start of "AF," a small speck of blood in a CM check. So I slapped on my panty liner(just bought 2 new boxes and a new box of tampons!), and went on about my day. The next day was the same, speck of blood in CM. I was thinking that my LP was doing better. Yay!
11 DPO: brown when I wiped.
12 DPO: some brown and some pink
13 DPO: pink on panty liner, dark red/maroon during CM check <--definitely AF! *tampon* 12 day LP woot!
14 DPO: Same as 13 DPO, only disappeared after a few hours.
Me: Huh. This MUST be what an anovulatory cycle is. My uterus lining is just all f*ck this! Made some posts on JM about it, talked to a friend about it.
Friend: You are pregnant.
Me: No, I'm not!
Friend: Girl, you need to test! Same thing happened with my third! Just do it! I'm right, I'm sooooo right about this.
Me: Fine. *pees on stick* BFP!
15 DPO: One instance of pink when I wiped. Bleeding stops.
So as of now I am 5 weeks and 4 days. Got my first bad tummy feelings. I think it was acid reflux. Puts a lot of pressure on my chest after I eat. Have that lump at the bottom of my throat. My first food aversion is sugar snaps. Kind of sucks. I am craving Twizzlers. I want so many Twizzlers right now. And freaking Tacos! Making those tonight. ♥
Thanks I hope you get your own Valentine baby next year.
February 8th gets Halloween babies(I wanted one!!!)
April 3rd will get you Christmas.
May 24th (I think) has the Valentine EDD. I conceived May 31st 2011, and they induce up to a week early. I really wanted the 14th! lol
I miscarried in January that year, twins. I conceived a baby due Christmas Day, immediately miscarried. Conceived that m/c cycle for the Valentine baby. I hope you don't go through more than this one, and your next BFP is a sticky rainbow.
I haven't started a journal in the DDC yet. With all these miscarriages under my belt I feel more comfortable here. NTNP still just in case.
I'm feeling acid reflux for sure now. I wake up feeling pretty good. Take a Pepsid, drink some juice, take my prenatals. Feel GREAT. Then I eat, and I have a burp fest for the rest of the day. lol Feels so queasy then I burp. But if this is what I deal with instead of nausea, I will take it!
This pregnancy just feels so different. My blighted ovums didn't give me much of anything. At 10 days late, I felt better than regular not pregnant. With my girls I felt like I had several rounds of chemo a day. This one is just reflux. I really don't mind, and I rejoice that this is all I'm dealing with at the moment. I'm even able to do chores, crafts, and go out to eat. It's amazing!
I wonder if I have it this good because I prayed for God's Will. With my first child I was SPECIFIC. A mother of an autistic child told me she prayed for "healthy," and her son is as healthy as a horse. So I made a list:
his black hair
my green eyes
not his swayback
mostly B's with the occasional A or C
good at a sport
What I got:
horrible at sports
talks to angels
So with my second and some humility I asked for:
Healthy body, healthy brain! Valentine's Day is a plus.
I got a girl with
is well coordinated
born February 14, 2012!
This time I wasn't trying for a baby. I did pray during the TWW that if God wanted me to be pregnant, that would be awesome, and I still love You, God, even if I'm not.
I'm curious how this child will turn out. Halfway curious if there is a child in there. lol I hope to hear the heartbeat soon. I have my first appointment and fingering session on February 20th. I'm going to ask for the doppler first.
Heartbeat in the 170's. I'm guessing it's going well because I haven't received any calls. This was about 10 days ago.
Depressing day in my DDC. I logged on today, and I immediately wanted to log off. It's at the early part so I expected the miscarriages. Three, possibly four, today. One ended with an emergency hysterectomy. Apparently the woman was only 19. So so sad. I've been weepy all day.
Acid reflux sucks. Hits me hard at night, feels like a weight on my chest. Kind of hurts!
A couple posts back, I talked about a woman having an emergency hysterectomy. All lies, she was a troll. We've been seeing our fair share of the beasties in the October DDC. I guess there's no better club for them. lol
Also found out one of the members of my last DDC was a troll. She was with us 9 months, had a birth story, had doctor questions and everything! I really liked his or her character, and it's so surprising to find out after nearly 2 YEARS of believing in this person that they weren't real. I guess from now on "I only like posting pics on facebook" should be a clue? Her account here was completely deleted. I can't even search her name.
Anyway... My last appointment was at 12 weeks. My doctor couldn't find the heartbeat so she brought out the u/s. The child was in there doing acrobats. lol Silly me, I was sucking down a cherry slushy while waiting. Going back on the 3rd to hear the heartbeat.
Acid reflux is tolerable. Vomited once from it, and I'm waiting for some meds to kick in while I write this. Going to try and make a bracelet tonight.
Trolls aren't WHO they say they are. They may be a woman that has never been pregnant or a dude. lol We found out we had a troll in my last DDC as well. She was with us for 9 months, had a back story, had pregnancy questions and problems, had a BIRTH STORY. Turns out she was just some lady with life problems. Doing a social experiment? I have no clue. Her partner, that is imaginary partner, became pregnant 3 months after she delivered, and she had a birth story for her as well. Neither existed. It felt like we lost a friend, and it was really weird.
I hope you O soon and catch that egg. My SIL tried for 8 years the first time, went through the drugs, gained 40 lbs, gave up, and randomly fell pregnant that next cycle. =P With her second child, they started trying early. Their son was only 10-12 months. Only took 3 cycles or so. lol She also has PCOS.
Well, there really are all kinds of crazy in this world hey!
Yeah, I have heard of so many stories like that too where people get pregnant shortly after they stop trying. PCOS and I have definitely not made friends yet haha
Yeah, the pregnant as soon as you relax stories always drove me nuts! We tried in the beginning by looking for the right mucus, saving up our sperm, I guess. What worked was a combination of not trying and really trying. I decided if we weren't having kids, we were having the sex life of a porn star. And it was SO fun. lol Conceived that cycle.
