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. ;)

I didn't read all the posts so if I am repeating I apologize in advance. The original post made it sound like you won't carry a normal pregnancy or healthy baby without the surgery, this leaves me wondering if you are crying with excitement or worry?

Hi! ;)

Its a little of both, wonderfully excited but insanely worried too! Our twins were born at 18w and did not survive. After that, we were told that my tubes were seriously narrowed and potentially causing a problem with my eggs. We were told I need the surgery and itll give us a 70% chance of a healthy baby. ;) I can get pregnant though with the one tube but its a crap shoot as to how the pregnancy will go. I;ve been driving myself nutty with all the 'what ifs' but I'm trying not to. ;) Im trying to relax and enjoy this, but I admit that its really hard to get my brain to shut up. lol :(

I had trouble getting pregnant too and i worried all the time i would miscarry again. I'm currently flopped out on my couch 35 weeks pregnant feeling my little girl put her toes between my ribs.
It was hard to really relax that everything would be ok until around 28 weeks.

;( Congratulations on your baby!! I have that running through my head, we have m/c, 18w and 24 w losses, but then was looking online and came across false positive test and all kinds of other crap. lol I swear, our downfall will be Webmd. lol

Hang in there mom, I hope everything goes great. Something to think about to get your mind on something else, if it's a boy consider the name Chance, Girl Miracle or Enigma, ;)
