Where to start? I've got a 1ww for testing, which I just figured out a few hours ago, and I'm already going nuts. I was on the forums for both of my girls before (Oct 2006 , Jan 2009) and it was always a great source of support, so here I am. I swear I see a few familiar names (mine was different back then)!
I'm not sure if what I'm feeling is early pregnancy (I could always tell early!), or side effects of a new birth control. This would be a miracle baby, if I am pregnant, but I just can't rule it out. My best guess is that I'm 8-10 DPO right now. I'm actually scheduled to have my tubes tied in 2 weeks, so this is very unexpected, hence my complete freak-out.
Here's the breakdown...
I had the Mirena IUD for 3 years, and about 6 months ago I started having really wacky periods and lots of random ovulation pains. Enough was enough, so I decided to remove it.
2 days before removal we had unprotected sex.
Removal day shows a cyst on my right ovary consistent with ovulation occurring. IUD is removed with no problems.
5 days later I start taking tri-sprintec BCP to prepare for my procedure that's coming up...and to prevent pregnancy, in theory. I've been on the BCP for 5 days now.
Sooooooo.... The IUD prevents implanting, but that was removed ... and BCP prevents ovulation, but was started after I had already ovulated. Like I said, I total miracle, but the chance is there.
I started feeling nauseated earlier today, consistent with how I've felt in the past when I had morning sickness. I've also got some mild uterine cramps going on, and some tender boobies. It's possible it's just side effects from the BCP...or not. EEK! :confused: I'm making myself wait a few days for testing....I know from the past that I really drive myself crazy staring at lines. I don't want to go cross-eyed looking for something.
