My husband and I have been trying for over two years now. Most of the issue, we know, is my thyroid. I've been told I should be fine to conceive and we know he's good. I'm still not comfortable enough with his mother to explain my health issues and intricate details of attempts to conceive, so she thinks we're just putting off giving her grandchildren. ;.;
Anyway, I've been on thyroid meds again and have learned to track when I ought to be fertile (based really on mucus since my thyroid, even when I'm on meds, leads to very erratic periods)... I've also gotten my libido back, so there's been a lot of sex lately.
The fertile time, based on mucus, came and went and... no period. It's been over a week. I had a pregnancy test at the doctor on Monday and it came back negative, but my midwife/dula friend told me today that due to how early it would have been given and based on the fertility timeline... it would have been too early for there to be enough hcg anyway.
Last night I got nauseous and threw up after eating. This is exceedingly rare for me even as a single case, as I can be incredibly ill and not throw up. I figured maybe it was a medication thing (I had taken some cough medicine) and moved on... but as soon as I woke up this morning, I became extremely nauseous again and barely made it to the bathroom in time to throw up. I recovered, got dressed, downed a glass of water with my pills... I remained mildly nauseous for a while, but it peaked suddenly and I again had to rush to the bathroom where I lost the entire contents of my stomach.
I had to go to jury duty, on the bus of all things, and I threw up three times over the next hour. It ebbed off enough that I was able to avoid fleeing the court room and when we had a break, my friend advised I try to eat something light and get some protein in me. I had coffee, toast, and scrambled eggs at a diner. I took my time and mostly sipped coffee and nibbled toast for a while. I was totally fine until I ate the eggs... I barely made it to the bathroom for that trip. She said such reactions to eggs can actually be very normal in morning sickness situations.
My other indication (besides what appears to be morning sickness and a late period) is during sex this afternoon, we came to realize that my cervix has shifted and after said midwife friend asked some details of the husband of how things felt for him... she said it was more potentially good news.
She said I need to wait a few more days until testing though, so I'm very...
I'm hopeful, I'm excited, but I know I shouldn't be. We've tried for two years, I've been on thyroid medication before, we've had so many negative tests... would it really happen within a month of being back on meds?
