Anyone Trying This Month?
0

16 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone is trying this month and/or are thinking they're pregnant?

I got my period on the 15th in March, it's a day late, but I could be a little too excited and maybe it'll show up in a day or so. I did buy a box of three tests though. I don't think it's coincidence that my period was right on the dot last month after being gluten-free for 3-4 months and now she hasn't shown herself!

Thinking about testing in the morning. Who is in the same boat?

I'm not trying at all. Hubby got the big snip. Just practice.

But good luck to you!

Some things I remember about being pregnant early was either incredibly hungry or feeling queasy. The blood vessels in my gums made them look very red. I had recently had some dental work and I thought something was wrong. I could feel my pulse in the insicion area and thought it was getting infected.

Anything's possible! Keep in mind, though, 3-4 months on schedule doesn't mean much when it comes to your cycle. I've had mine be 100% predictable for six months and then go completely sideways for no reason. Hope you get a little pink plus in a week!

AF is still a no show. :/ I wish she would either show up or I would be pregnant...none of this goofing off stuff. lol

Last month was the first month on schedule, might take a few months of on schedule for everything to be realigned. I know because of the gluten-free diet, things started to get better. I get excited when I hear encouraging stories about people being on the diet for only a month and then they get pregnant.

Still no period. Today is day 39 of my so called cycle, since my period hasn't shown. Had pin size spotting in CM this morning and then pink TP this afternoon. My breasts are tender and glands feel swollen. If period doesn't show tomorrow...not sure what I'll do. I have two tests in the bathroom. :/

upwitht21, I hope/pray that next month is better for you!

Good morning all!

I'm only slightly disappointed, but at the same time I'm very very encouraged because I got my period today. This means my cycle is about 41 days long. I don't want to become too distracted and constantly thinking about this, but I am going to start keeping a close eye on when my period comes and putting it on a calendar.

It was so chaotic before (gluten-free) that I never kept track.

I'm not sure why I feel I have to write this to you mommies to be. Maybe because my son's birthday is in a matter of weeks.

I went for my first pregnancy appointment and they draw blood and do a quick pregnancy test and start to determine what week of pregnancy you are at. That went fine or so I thought. The next appointment I was having an internal ultrasound because the HCG level was soo high. The doctor was looking for multiples or if the pregnancy was many weeks ahead. The ultrasound showed one "blastocyst" with no heartbeat. (you kinda know you are in trouble when the terms are everything but "baby".) The doctor told me it would be best to end the "pregnancy" immediately and to he was sending me to the hospital accross the street. He said a level the high for a single pregnancy would surely mean a deformity even if there was a heartbeat and it appeared that the HCG level had dropped. He pressured me forever to just get the abortion. He finally backed off when I told him I just need to talk to my husband.

By the time I did tell my husband what was going on, I started to think it was time to listen to my own body. I still felt pregnant. I checked the pregnancy information book, some information is just a guesstimate timeline. The heartbeart should show up in the five to six weeks timeline. I decided to at least wait until wait should be the 6th week. (The Dr. said it didn't really matter that a spontanious abortion would surely happen during the week.)

I waited that week. My husband went with me to the next appointment. And there it was "blinking like a star in the dark midnight sky" a heartbeat. :D Doctor ~ Fired.

I was off to find a different OBGYN.

Speculations on what happened... Lab screw up on the blood test. A twin that did not survive could have blocked the view of the living heartbeat.

He will be 13 in a few weeks and is 5' 7" 147 lbs. athelitic build. No developmental disabilities. :)

Moral of the story people will tell you horror stories. (even doctors) You body is built and designed to do this and have a lot of faith. ;)

Awwe! Mommida! Thank you so much for sharing that!

I think the labs screw up more than we know, especially when it comes to pregnancy. I read a great book on how we shouldn't believe how far along we are when they tell us. They calculate the pregnancy weeks in the wrong way, think we're not as far along as we really are and because of that, make assumptions. Because they go off the typical cycle "30 days/14 days prior to expected period" and they use that to determine our baby's birthday. Sorry, I have a thing for pregnancy and how it really works.

Good for you for not listening to the doctor. Happy birthday to your son! Life is so precious!

You too??

I had a sonogram at apx. the same time, but normal blood work. Sonogram didn't show a heartbeat and they couldn't get me in that day for a better sonogram (my OB was livid).

We saw his heartbeat 3 days later. My OB was beside himself - we were working off dates I gave him and he wanted to adjust forward a week...I let him because I wanted a later due date (less chance they'd push to induce). But hubs and I know when our son was conceived - there was only one date it could have been due to travel, schedule - September 11, 2001.

I remember thinking the same thing - I FEEL pregnant. He's not going anywhere.

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
