Hello, I am new to this forum and was looking for some support, guidance, and some ladies to share my ride on this crazy train that is TTC. Sorry in advance for my long winded story ;)
I am trying for my second child after an unexpected pregnancy and miscarriage. I was having symptoms and took a test October 23 when AF didnt rear her ugly head. Much to my surprise there was a very faint BFP. I tested a few days later and there was still a faint BFP but definately darker than the first I took. I called the OBGYN and made an appointment. I had all the symptyoms under the sun. At 5w4d 10/29, I began spotting, which turned into light bleeding. I went in for a blood test and got a call the next day... it was Negative :( I only bled (with small clots, no pain) for three days. On the evening of the third day (10/31) DH and I DTD. I had tested that morning to see if I was still registering a BFP and got a clear negative. I spotted very lightly for two more days then it all stopped. The symptoms, the spotting, the googling, the obsession. I am now 7 days from when the bleeding stopped and woke up with sore bbs a headache and nausea. I was feeling really fatigued last night so I took a test, mainly cause they are there and I have OCD. Wanting to make sure I had no HCG left and can sit here and obssess over when I will Ovulate. I POAS went back to it about 5 min later and it was stark white (sigh of relief, cause when I wiped this morning I had a slight pink tinge to my CM) I grabbed the test this morning to chuck in the garbage and there was a faint pink line, really faint and long past the ten minute time mark... but it was not an evap. (which is how I found out I was PG the first time) Sooooo now I am asking myself, am I getting a leftover surge of HCG from the miscarriage? Is it at all possible I could be pregnant again so soon after a MC? Surely it sounds ridiculous that I would drop an egg within a day of a MC ending and implant that soon. But why would I get a clear negative.... then, what could be a line 7 days later? Yes I am crazy, Yes it sounds impossible, Yes I am hoping and praying (and a tad worried) I could be pregnant again, but the real possibility is just left over hormonal trickery. I hope there are a few other ladies out there that want to hold my hand and skip enthusiastically into TTC land.
