3e fausse couche

Bon, la 3e fausse couche a commencé.

Les taux de hcg étaient à 8. Jeudi, une autre prise de sang et quand ça va être à zéro, on va faire les autres tests.

Une partie de moi est découragée et l’autre est contente de passer à autre chose. Cette grossesse-ci, on a même pas parlé de prénoms, on a rien acheté, rien prévu, je n’ai même pas pris rendez-vous avec un ou une obgyn. Je m’étais dit que j’attendais de voir si je dépassais la 6e semaine. Nope.

3e grossesse

Bon, je suis de nouveau enceinte, je suis rendue à plus que 5 semaines. J’ai une écho dans 2 semaines, mais j’attends un résultat de prise de sang.

Mercredi le 5, j’ai eu un test FRER positif et j’ai passé une 1ère prise de sang chez mon gynéco. Le résultat était négatif parce que le chiffre était trop bas. Mais, depuis, pas de saignement…j’ai donc gardé mon rendez-vous en fertilité parce que 5 semaines est le moment où je fais la fausse couche d’habitude.

J’espère tellement que les chiffres vont être bons…sinon, bien, on continue les démarches en fertilité. Si les chiffres sont bons, je dois prendre du Prométrium.

NON

Le docteur que j’ai vu hier m’a recommandé d’arrêter mon fils de 2 ans que j’allaite juste une fois par jour pendant un gros max de 5 minutes (le reste du temps il tétouille juste pour se coller). Pis, automatiquement, c’est NON. Non parce que je ne veux pas et non parce que je ne pense pas que ça affecte ma fertilité à ce niveau-là. Je suis un peu en choc de m’en rendre compte à quel point mon allaitement est important. Pour mon fils aussi, en passant. Si j’essaie de juste le bercer, oublie ça.

J’avais juste besoin de le dire.

7th month of TTC

I don’t know the abbreviations in French so I’ll go ahead in English. We have been TTC for 7 months. When I got pregnant at 29 and then at 36, it happened at first try. Although I wasn’t trying at 29. This is our 7th month of TTC this time around. If I ever conceive and deliver a healthy baby, I will be past my « closed shop » time. I always thought that at 40 it would be the end for baby making.

It has been awhile since I last wrote, much has happened.

I had acupuncture which resulted in a shorter LP…7 days ! When my treatments stopped, I started taking B6+B12+folic acid and I got longer LP. I am using OPKs since August and I could see that while I had acupuncture I would O on cd17 instead of cd21. Then I started Vitex, Damiana, BBT and I got pregnant in November and in December, early miscarriages both months.

I did multiple pregnancy tests, they did not get darker. In November, AF arrived 4 days after my BFP while I was in a convention. Boy was I glad to have 2 old tampons with me. Cramps, clots, the whole shebang. But it was a fairly ordinary AF. I went to see my doctor and he saw nothing on the ultrasound and the pregnancy test came back negative. Of course, since I O on cd 21, I wouldn’t have been 5 weeks really. 5 weeks is calculated form the date of the last AF…the fetus would have been 2 weeks.

In December, I got a BFP on December 26th and I miscarried January 5th just before going back to work…it was a really tough week. I had cramping and my back was killing me. It still hurts, I don’t know why. AF was the heaviest I have ever seen, I was filling a tampon in less than 3 hours. I usually change my tampon 2 times a day, sometimes 3. Huge clots, dizzy, etc. I had to stay home some of the time or I would come in work and have to go back home. I ate steak, took Iron, I was very tired for 2 weeks. It was also a week where we had a funeral service for my aunt who dies on December 21st. I went to see the doctor January 6th and his test was negative and he saw nothing on the ultrasound. Of course…it was way too early to see anything and as I learned that day, doctors have less sensitive strip tests because a pregnancy is « real » if it can be detected at 25miu. I got home, used a FRER and got a BFP but way fainter than a few days earlier. I had done multiple tests and they were getting darker even the one I did on January 4th the day before I started spotting. This was the most heartbreaking thing, before realizing it was so early it was normal, that my doctor didn’t believe me even if I showed him pictures of my test. Because HE couldn’t see anything.

The doctor suggested I go see a fertility specialist and I was eager to accept. I have an appointment on February 10th. So this month I told myself that I would relax. No Vitex, took Damiana maybe twice, BBT and used OPKs. But I did my OPKs earlier or later in the day than usual and ended up missing my surge. I go two almost positives. FF detected O but the info is not sure. Today I thought Iwas 10DPO si I used a FRER and got a BFN. Wasn’t too surprised…then I saw FF says I’m 9dpo. My bad. Too early. So I’m waiting for AF on Monday…

I can’t rely on pregnancy symptoms because they are just like PMS and because I don’t have pregnancy symptoms anyway.

This month has been strange as you can see on the chart below. I think maybe it’s the Vitex I didn’t take, I had lots of flat temps and my thermometer works just fine. So I’m in my TWW…wouldn’t it be fun if TTC worked like in the movies or like in the stories I hear ? You stop taking meds or supplements and become pregnant or you go into the fertility clinic to find out you are indeed pregnant ?

Question fertilité !

La question fertilité du mois ! Est-ce qu’il y en a qui ont été capables de tomber enceinte même si elles allaitaient encore ? 

Pourquoi ? Je fais des tests d’ovulation et je vérifie ma glaire cervicale et les signes sont là. Mais, quand je regarde mes graphiques de température, je ne vois pas clairement les changements de température associés avec l’ovulation (faut dire que c’est mon 1er mois à faire ça alors c’est peu fiable).

Voici celui de ce mois-ci à date.

Positive OPK and not ovulating ? Breastfeeding and ovulation ?

I am still breastfeeding but only twice a day. I do OPKs usually and I get a positive and my CM is also a sign that I’m ovulating. However, according to this chart (my 1st ever so it probably isn’t accurate enough) I have not ovulated this month.

This is frustrating because all the signs were there that I was ovulating between CD 15 and 20 which is in accordance with the last months. I have been doing accupuncture treatments and it got me to ovulate on day 17 instead of 21. Before acupuncture I would get a positive OPK on CD21. 

I don’t know what to think anymore and people telling me to not think about it are getting on my nerves. If I don,t think about it…I don,t think about it so we don’t have sex during my fertile window.

This is my Ovuline chart. If anyone has any ideas and thoughts…besides not thinking about it.
