I need an intervention

Okay I think I need a "keep your though process from going there" intervention. So RE appointment this month didn't go the way we expected and we're pretty sure I have endometriosis but are waiting on an official diagnosis because it was too late in my cycle to do any testing when I went to the doc. With that said, I'm just all confused. I didn't do OPKs or chart or anything this cycle and honestly we didn't really even try. I think we only BD like 4 times the whole month and I'm not even sure if it was around when I O'd or not or if I even O'd at all.

With that said on Sunday I appeared to have come down with a virus. They're going around everywhere right now and a kid threw up in the class I was in on Wednesday so I wasn't surprised I was sick. I never did throw up, it was more of an intestinal thing...the worst cramping I've ever felt and I got pretty sick for a few hours then it stopped. I've been running a fever off and on since then and I still feel pretty bad. I don't feel bad all the time. It's mostly at night time and if I move around a whole lot. I know the viruses that have been going around have been pretty rough on people but considering I was only really sick for a few hours it doesn't make sense to me that it'd take a good week to get over it. The only symptom I've had of any sickness is fever and it isn't high. The highest it got that I know of is 100. That's kind of high for me but overall not much of a fever.

I've had higher temps after O before that got almost that high but I never felt bad. I just feel sick, but not really sick enough to go to the doc. I'm not sure when to expect AF really...probably somewhere between Tuesday-Thursday this week. I can't be pregnant right? I mean the way the doctor talked our chances on our own were not good. I'm even on all sorts of medications that would be bad for baby and he told me not to worry about changing them yet. I thought that probably meant our chances were next to none. Someone talk me out of these thoughts going through my head! Help! (Sorry this was so long. I've become a crazy woman for sure)

Leah- I was out lurking and saw this.

There is always a chance you could be pg. A lot of women get pg when they aren't trying... even when Drs have said it is near impossible. I am thinking of you.

anything is possible! That said... this sounds alot like the virus I had a couple weeks ago. I woke up so nausious and actually threw up and then was sick all day and the next and felt like i had a fever but it was only 99. I felt like it was warmer LOL. But you could be... I guess you will have to wait and see Smile

Thanks ladies. I bet it's just a super weird virus. I'm immune compromised after all so I catch weird things all the time but they're usually more severe than this. I kind of wondered if I had a light flu or something cause I had a flu shot but honestly this doesn't feel anywhere near as bad as flu. I've had something that's felt like chills off and on but I think it's just cold in the house or something. Lol. Took a few advil and I feel better and it's back down to like 98.6. Ugh! I hate this crap! I need this 2WW to be over so I can get my testing done and find out what's really going on. It's enough to drive me insane!

Switch to Tylenol! Just incase Smile I'm hoping it's going to be a big surprise BFP!

Leah, I was just wishing today that when the 'deed' was completed, couldn't your cervix just send you a tell-tale sign? Like, turn rock hard or release a blue dye. Would that be too much to ask?? Lol. At the end of last year I could have sworn, like 100%, that I was preggo. Not once but twice. My body completely had me fooled. Right now, in the back of my mind, I'm thinking it again! But I have to keep repeating, 'you are not pregnant, you are not pregnant....' over and over until AF is really and truely late. It can seriously drive a woman mad!
That being said, of course you could be preggo. A baby can happen against all odds. Smile I'll be praying and hoping luck is on your side this month. Just remember, you aren't only one going crazy while waiting. Sorry it's taking so long for you. (((hugs)))

i know some women who were ttc for years and they gave up and stopped ttc once they stopped they came out pregnant. with my 1st dd i didn't want to have a baby i was to busy going out partying and i wasn't even think about children and i came out pregnant withoutout knowing i was i had very irregular periods she was born stillborn at 26 weeks my water broke. then 3 months later i got pregnant with dd which she came out healthy. so anything is possible just keep your hopes up.

If your immune compromised then anything is possible with that. Mine isn't what it should be due to a severe issue a few years ago. The most minor things set me off forever! I spent a week and a half feeling like death at the beginning of this month where my son felt a bit bad for two days and DH was better after 24 hours. :roll:
If you're not expecting AF till tuesday to thursday-ish of next week, I'd just wait till next Friday to test if AF is still missing. Of course with DS I had given up all hope of ever being pregnant and by the time I tested I didn't even have to wait 5 seconds to see the blaring BFP. I was at least 18dpo by then maybe even as late as 21dpo, but when you're not charting and know you have issues you sometimes want to wait until the answer is starting at you in the face. I know I didn't want to test "early" and be disappointed yet again.
((hugs))

Anything is possible. I think we all understand the two week madness, too. If you can hold out on testing until after AF is due, you can avoid the sadness that comes with a BFN. Remember that if it's a BFP now, it will still be a BFP next Fri. I never listen to my own words though. If it's a virus, I hope you're feeling better soon!

Thank you ladies for all the support! I figured out what's wrong with me...it should have been obvious but it's been a while. I have thrush but not like normal thrush that babies get. Since I'm immune compromised when I get it it usually starts somewhere in my stomach or intestines and works it's way up. My chest has been hurting all week and I just thought it was reflux but it's thrush in my esophagus. I guess it's called candida at this point and not thrush and I have no idea why mine goes backwards. I've been taking probiotics for months, but have had more antibiotics than usual lately. Stupid immune issues. Makes me so mad. So yeah I looked at my throat in the mirror and it's all in the my throat and definitely in my esophagus. Thankfully I have medicine for it and it'll be better soon, but it explains the fever and the body aches. Not sure why it causes that when it gets bad but it does. At least I have an answer as to why I'm feeling like crap with an end in sight! Smile

Thanks ladies. Beth I'm feeling a little better today. It still hurts to eat and swallow and I still have the body aches and I think a low grade fever, but I should be a whole lot better by tomorrow or later today even. I'm ready to be done with this and focus on getting these tests done and getting some answers! Smile
