Well, I'm scared just sitting here writing this.
I'm somewhere between 2-3 weeks pregnant. Came off of the patch Feb. 28th, had AF March 4th and am now pregnant. I know this sounds crazy, but I started taking FRE test 4 days after my AF started. What was I thinking, there's no way I could have been prego at that time. I'm estimating I ovulated the 17th or 18 of March. I got my first BFP on Sunday afternoon and just ran out of the bathroom screaming "It's positive!" to husband. He just hugged me and I cried. I couldn't believe it was actually +. I waited 2 hours and took another one, just to make sure. Again, positive. I've felt nausia the past 2 nights after eating dinner. I felt better after laying down for awhile. I have also had hot flashed-didn't know that was a sign of prego.
I made an appointment with an ob (Dr. Perales) for tomorrow at 9 am. Yesterday I had one of our nurses draw my blood, just to be sure and to check my hcg levels. I also had my pcp draw my blood today, again to check the hcg levels. That way I would have 2 test to compare. My hcg's yesterday were 121, today they were either 136 or 138. So, they are definitely going up.
I'm really scared, but am going to take it one day at a time. Back in '96 I had a m/c. I found out I was preggo, started spotting, went to the doc for an ultra sound. Found that I had one blighted ovum and a healthy sac with a good heart beat. He put me on bedrest. After a week or two I felt things were different. Went to the ER, they did another ultrasound, no heartbeat. I was sent home, where I passed a lot of blood and clots. Went back to the hospital for a D & C.
In '01 found out I was prego again, started spotting the same day I got a BFP. Went to ob's had blood drawn, hcg was up in the 800's. But then 2 days later it had dropped to the 100's. So, I knew what was happening. This was termed a chemical pregnancy.
So, needless to say, I'm VERY scared, but want to be happy at the same time. I would've had my AF yesterday, if I weren't prego..no spotting so far. Trying to keep hopes high here.
TaTa for now!
