I wanted to let you all know I got a bfp...it's crazy how it happened. I was spotting, assuming my af was on it's way...figured I had a cyst again...which causes lots of spotting.
I had a mammogram scheduled and last minute decided to do a pregnancy test just be sure, since you can't have a mammogram when you're pregnant...so I went out late that night got three tests, came home and did the first test....
I thought my af had started with the spotting so in no way was I expecting the test to be positive...I was so shocked...did two more tests and all came up positive. Then searched on line for reasons for a false positive, since I was convinced my af was starting and I wasn't pregnant...but by the time I went to bed that night concluded the bfp was right. SHOCKED.
I cancelled my mammogram and had an already scheduled dr appointment the next day...we were going to discuss infertility, etc. In May I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, so I was just given the green light to start ttc again. The diabetes was a shock too since I'm a former professional athlete and have always been a healthy eater...I also had a problem with cysts this past year, one rupturing, and a chemical pregnancy last October....so this BFP was a shock!!
I had my u/s yesterday and so far everything looks perfect. I'm 8 weeks and my due date is May 3rd. Of course I'm very nervous and just taking it day by day...I know anything can happen this early.
I dealt with the tragic loss of my sister in my 20's...and ever since that experience I take nothing in life for granted...have a hard time believing tragedy won't strike again....so I'm being very cautious at this point. I have a 2 1/2 year old dd and had her at almost 40. I'm now 42.
I've wanted to post for a few weeks now....just wanted to wait for the u/s yesterday. Will keep you all posted.
I also hold all of you in my heart....and really want bfp's for all of you...and am so sad when I read all your heartbreaking stories, kind of made me hesitant to even post this...since I know so many of you are dealing with such awful situations right now. But I saw that other bfp post and thought maybe now I should share this news with you...that it may help some of you.
You're all in my thoughts and prayers. Want this for each of you so much.
