SO excited! Now that my original shock has worn off, Im really super excited! <3 Trying to get my crazy brain to shut up. :P





HI ladies. I didnt want to post this because I feel like I might jinx it but I need to get out of my own head. lol Anyway, DH and I have been trying for several years to have a baby but have experienced several losses. Our twins were born at 18w and after their birth, we learned that I need a surgery that will give us a 70% chance of a healthy pregnancy and baby. Ive been driving myself nuts since December 2012 trying to earn and save (we opened a small home business) the almost $9k we need for the surgery. 

Long story short, I have some odd symptoms lately and I THINK I might be pregnant. I posted this anonymously in another group on CM but changed the title after I POAS and it was negative. DH SWEARS the test was faulty from the moment he saw it. Some new symptoms have been added below that DH noted. Ive also taken THREE online surveys..lol and they said I was most likely pregnant but to confirm with a HPTand blood work.  

Symptoms include:

VERY sore breasts, increase in size and veins are more pronounced.

Quite Emotional (not my norm)/Moody *cringe* (not my norm)

Uterine cramping pains. 

Teeth/Gum pain.

Having odd dreams about having conceived which I normally dont have.

Odd body aches. Primarily shoulders, back.

Headaches.

AF is now 2 days date on one calender and 1 day late on my regular calender.

My two pets are much more affectionate toward me than they normally are. Sleeping on my pillow and the other right up against my chest.

I feel like Im STARVING half the time.

I LOVE steak. I could eat it alone without any side dishes. We had steak the other night and it tasted 'funny' to me and I wasnt into it at all. Dh said there was no funny taste to him.

Much more frequent urination.

I know there's more but those are the only ones I can think of right off the top of my head. ;)

PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for us. 

Tested on the 9th. It was negative. :(


PLEASE help me with this. Im driving myself nuts going back and forth in my head about whether Im pregnant or not. Trying to hold out for a few days to test again but its proving to be very difficult. :P


This has been ETA'd for more detail. ;)

It was 3. The blood test are performed on the same test, but we spin the blood and use the serum, unless we are doing a beta hcg.


Quoting MomOf3AngelBabe:

Did you use four drops of urine exactly or more than four?

Quoting monkeymom1104:

The $1 are the same tests I used when I worked with a midwife.





Quoting MomOf3AngelBabe:

;) Funny you say that. The last test I bought was a $1 test and the same one DH thinks is faulty. lol 

I think its worth another try in the future though. :)

Quoting Ninjascreenname:

byy a bunch of $1 tests, those pick up pregnancies quickly for me.

Even if your not pregnant, these symptoms should not be ignored.

I completely agree! If we get another negative, I will be sure to follow up. I know that other issues that would cause some of these symptoms would need to be addressed immediately.

You might know on your own by then! Dont forget to ask them to call if they have a cancellation. Good luck!
