Anyone Trying This Month?

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.

    • Thanks so much, friends!  JMG, I'll try to get hold of that licorice, almost everything I read gives it glowing reviews.  I miss Bertie Bassets licorice (it contains wheat) so it will be nice to have some licorice again.  Thanks Whitepaw for those ideas, I must admit I'm getting rather fed up with my low fat menu but it seems the best way to keep the pain at bay so it is nice to have something else to cook.  I don't know if I have picked up another intolerance, but you could be onto something there.  And I know what you mean icelandgirl, we've been through so many tests and treatments it all becomes a blur!  My doctor isn't expecting to see me again unless things aren't better within the month, but I might bring my gastro appointment forward if needs be. Actually, in the end yesterday didn't go quite as badly as I'd envisaged it would, which makes me think that some of my pain, bloating and nausea are down to the ompremazole - it does warn that can happen on the packet.  When it says 1 in 10 people get these symptoms I always seem to be that 1 in 10!  I don't have any more burning pain or acid reflux (at least yet) but  I'm still losing weight which slightly troubles me.  That said, when I think of how I normally eat I must be down at least 500 calories a day.  JMG will know from another thread that I have a sweet tooth and at the moment the thought of eating a bar of chocolate makes me feel very sick indeed... Oh no - hope that doesn't mean I have developed a chocolate intolerance! I bought some 10g ompremazole tabs yesterday from Boots, having had nothing yesterday, and I've taken one at breakfast time.  So far so good.  I think I might take these for a few days then taper off. Thank you so much guys for accompanying me on what would otherwise be a lonely journey.  
    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
