This month I was supposed to hold off for an oral surgery set up on April 9th. But dh has been wishy-washy on TTC again, so with my OB's permission she said if he happened to be onboard around O forget the surgery, get pg & we'll work something out for the surgery (most likely in 2nd trimester or with a local only).
Due to the impending surgery & more appts needed to be made my OB had me go in for a blood test on Tuesday. (Normally I O & AF on Sun, but this month I felt O pains on Sat, so I'm not sure if I was 9 or 10dpo.) Wed is my OB's day in the hospital so when the results were not called in by her assistant in the AM I knew something was up. Around 4PM the OB who had confirmed my mc (my OB was out of town then) called to discuss my numbers. She did not want to call it a pg because they were so low. She then said if I didn't see AF over the weekend come back in for another blood test on Monday.
As all of you know, you're not going to sit around wondering if you're going to mc. So I bought some FRE's. Added up my #'s (I was at 6 on Tue) figuring I should be hitting 24 either on Sat or Sun.
I took a FRE this morning (Fri), 1-2 days before AF, and the faintish line is already much-much darker than the one from my last pg's test at 5 days late.
In my research I found at WebMD the average time to implant is 9.1 days. Therefore, even though I was only at a 6 on Tue it's actually a very good sign since we now know I implanted on or before 9dpo.
Therefore, I'm taking the next 2 steps. I'm sighing in relief for I am pg before my 4/22 EDD & I'm joining this group!
