I got a big suprise this morning...a BFP...and I wasn't expecting it but VERY excited.
Here is my story...
I got pregnant almost a year ago today, Alyssa was due November 30th, 2008. On Novermber 29th, 2009...her heart stopped beating...a knot in her cord. It was obviously devestating and is still today. Fast forward to the end of February I had pre-conception counseling with the high risk doctor. She advised me to wait 18 months until ttc again...I told her there was no way...so she said atleast 6 months. After this meeting they did a ton of different types of tests on me and they all came back normal which is wonderful.
DH and I have been really good about using protection EXCEPT on two occassions...March 18th and the 22nd (yes...I keep track!). So...On March 27th I had to have surgery and they did a pregnancy test before hand which was a BFN which I assumed it would be bc I wasn't trying. For a week after the surgery I took Vidoden for about 3 days, then Motrin for about 3 days and that was it since I was feeling fine.
Fastforward to yesterday...when I was brushing my teeth I was gagging...that only happened when I was pregnant last time...got me thinking...then I was kinda getting dizzy sometimes at work...hmmm.... so since i was curious but expecting a BFN I took a pregnancy test and got a BFP!!!
I am super excited, but also freaking out. My doc wanted me to wait 6 months!!! I only waited 3...but not intentionally! Then the whole thing about the surgery kinda scared me. I think I am around 4 weeks now. I am going to call my family doctor tomorrow and have them take a blood test just in case before I call my high risk doctor..which I am scared of what she will say since I didn't wait like she told me to!
Two reasons - #1) she wanted me to wait for both physical and emotional reasons. #2) she was concerned about blood clotting issues, but all my test results came back normal. I think the only issue now is if I am emotionally ready to do this again,a nd if my body is ready to carry another baby to term.
Congrats about the new baby.
I will say sometimes Dr's are over cautious if they are scared. My OB with the boys was terrified when I became pregnant with Jon(I had a lot of complications after Nick was born), she didn't think I could handle it we did great. She ended up being on call when I went into labor with both boys and did say "If you have another I will retire, I can't handle the stress of your pregnancies". I cross stitched a cute little thing that said "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it". Sometimes our bodies know when we are ready even if we don't.
So think of that your OB is worried about you but may also be scared of something happening again so soon.
