Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
09/06/2016 at 15:33
im scared to get my hopes up because as you know it hurts, but I have to test earlier per docs orders due to my hasimotos disease because my thyroid needs close scrutiny so I don't have another miscarriage. So here I am at 8dpo (or I think 10 dpo but going with fertility friends app 8dpo). Got a suuuuppppppper squinter last night, and this with second morning urine. I go out of town for work tomorrow for a week so I'm thinking about heading to the blood lab today but....is there a second line? Or am I so hopeful after being told I was in meno pause after my miscarrige last year...that I'm seeing things. Thank you so much.

Thank you so very much ladies. My endo told me to tell him immediately if I have a BFP because we need to see if i need a meds increase for synthroid. lost my first and only pregnancy at 11 weeks due to thyroid issue I didn't know I had. I'm 40 years old met my DH later in life. I was told twice last year menopause due to long cycles after miscarriage (they used to be 28 days). My numbers showes bad ovarian reserve too but I didn't give up.... started traditional Chinese medicine and cycles back to 28 days next month. Did acupuncture last month so it should be possible. I needes confirmaction on that line. It came up well within limit. Thank you. Iya been a roller coaster!!

Wow sorry for typos! That was to read I needed confirmation so thank you. The test came up within two minutes but wanted to make sure I wasn't seeing things. Xoxo

Looks positive. Its probably faint cos you are testing early. Do let your doctor know asap. Wishing you happy 9months

You guys convinced me. At the lab now to get my thyroid checked! This pic is closer up and I could see it better here so ya....Still faint and light but in person I don't have to squint and can hold it out a foot and see it so.....we shall see! Fingers crossed!

Everything crossed, let us know x

I'm so delighted for you. You are giving me so much hope. I am 41, lost my first at 11 weeks too last year and haven't gotten pregnant since. have just done IUI and was also put on meds for thyroid so hoping next week I get a bfp xx

Sio I'm so sorry for your loss. Just awful to have to go through. if this gives you any indication on how bad my tyroid was (didn't know it at the time of course) my TSH was 41!!! Yes 41!!!! Now it's around 1! The meds are brilliant. Also I had scarring on my cervix from two leep procedures. My (former) docs office told me they were surprised I got pregnant so easily first time because they had such a hard time with D&C because of the scarring and almost had to give up on it (How that would work I don't know my body was not misscarrying naturally but baby was gone.) My second and now former docs office told me I was in menopause. My AMH numbers were crap (.07 I think) and FSH was elevated. Cycles were 45ish days after mc. Until two weeks of Chinese herbs about a year later. Next cycle? 28 days! Then a few sessions of acupunctuse (with only one needle!! My body didn't like it so she would do pressure or a laser instead mostly). She also put me on a fertility diet to "nourish eggs". an advocado daily, coconut oil daily, and eggs daIly. (More to it than that it you want to email me I'll download it all but I think it's unique to each person.) you got pregnant once. It will happen again. I also did guided mediation. I forgot about that. I needed to relax and chill out. So ya that was 145 a session but less than IVF which I could not do anyway because they said menoppause. Two sessions of guided meditation did the trick I felt different and calm. I also started planning on other things. I booked tickets to go to the Caribbean next month. Now not going because of ZIka and just fine with that. You have so much hope! Your body knows how to do this. It will when its ready is what I was told by my "eastern medicine team". I hated to hear that so I'm sorry to even say it. Keep us posted. Xoxo

Thank you hopingforarainbow. how did you get on at the lab xx
13/06/2016 at 23:25
Thank you. After a positive digital bloodwork came back inconclusive! I'm trying not to lose hope. It was either 8 or 10dpo so maybe it was high enough to trigger digital but not at threshold for blood positive!? I've heard of this on message boards but just feel like I'm grasping at straws. Kinda gutted. Husband says don't loose hope. I'm traveling and no where near a place to get another FRER. Ironically I brougut my second digital with me and before the results came up the baterry died! Geez I'm learning patience. Another three days until I can test again.

Hopingforarainbow, it can be frustrating. At least that leaves time for HCG to increase before you test again. Try not to stress,i know this can be impossible to do. Hope it all works out well. Enjoy your holiday

oh hopingforarainbow, keeping everything crossed for you xx

Thank you all! I'm on a work trip and can't find a place to get a teat anywhere! Wish I was with DH. Could really use a hug from him to be honest. Cramps and backache. I am thinking those are good pregnancy signs instead of AF! The good news is once I'm back it will have been a week so I will know something.
15/06/2016 at 08:31
sorry you feel that way, try and enjoy the time you have to yourself while on your work trip.

Hi ladies. Took a FRER last night but was faint. Today blank FRER with fmu and a negative digi. Very sad. Had been very happy to be pregnant by my d&c anniversary next month of my angel baby. :(. Good luck all! thank you for everything!
