What a crazy week Bonita. To go from having positive tests...to negative....to positive again. You have handled everything waaaay better than I would have. I am so curious to know what is going to happen from here.
It has been crazy. I have been very sick today, so I think there has to be a decent amount of hormones in me. My sister is in town and that is helping the time to go by faster. I wish I was better able to enjoy her visit though.
Can I just vent a little bit on here? TMI alert, so if that botters you, skip this post. DH and I had not DTD since this whole thing started. He was nervous from a past experience where we had a m/c right after DTD. Fast forward, we finally DTD this AM and of course now I am spotting. I have no idea if it is normal spotting or not. I would say I always spot the first time we DTD after a period, and the bleeding I had was like a period. On the other hand, I have no idea if the rising numbers are not a healthy been, but just retained tissue. If so, then the spotting would not be a good sign. (It is a very small amount of spotting, but it is red). This whole situation is just so stressful. Because MIL put it on FB everyone knows. That means dealing with lots of questions. If I start to heavy bleed after DTD, DH is going to so blame himself.
Thanks for letting me get that out as there is no one IRL that I would want to talk to about that.
Bonita, hugs!!!! Spotting after dtd is super common during pregnancy (if your bean is still there) and usually has zero impact on the bean, so I would say it probably doesn't mean anything. I'm sure the whole thing is just one more reason to stress though. I hope you get more answers soon so your life can go back to normal. Many hugs.
Thank you. I have a weird feeling in my abdomen, that is not helping either. It is not cramps per say, but more like a feeling of "I ate too much so my stomach is uncomfortable) feeling. It is not low like cramps would be though. More around the middle.
I also am ready for this situation to either A. progress and find out it is a happy healthy been, or B. Be done already. Hopefully A. This situation has just been so draining.
Such a roller coaster. I stopped spotting. I was still nervous so I took another test. Even though it is evening, that test was significantly darker than this mornings test. I wish I had a crystal ball that I could look into the future and know what was going to happen.
So hard to wait a long time. I felt this morning's test did not look any darker than last night, perhaps a little lighter. However it was 4:30 AM and my pee was not very dark, so it might not have been true FMU. I might need to find away to go some more tests soon because I only have one left, but want one for in the morning. No spotting of any kind today.
Just took another test. I posted a picture on the DYSAL board. The picture is blurry and the line is not as dark as it is IRL. I was so pleased with that test. This AM's test must have been a dud because it was so faint (more faint than last night's test), but this evening's test is clearly a nice line.
Nauseousness has hit. As unpleasant as it is, I am excited about it. I have not gotten mourning sickness with most of my kids because I have low progesterone. The metformin that I am on now is supposed to help with that.
