OK ladies, so here's the run down...In February my SO and I decided that we'd like to start trying again, well March 10th I got my BFP! My son is just now 10 months old, I've only had 1 Cycle (December 21, 2009). I had my 6 month check up on January 22nd this year and my dr noted that my uterus was enlarged, and just shrugged it off that it probably was due to me having a 6 month old and it just "not going back down to normal yet". I chuckled and looked at my SO like OH CRAP, am I Pregnant...needless to say I tested the next day...Negative! I was testing like every 3 weeks just to make sure that I didn't miss me getting pregnant just to be sure as we weren't trying to prevent, but also weren't trying to get pregnant. Beginning of Feb we started talking about "when" we wanted to have our next (as the earliest) we decided 18 months would be good, as in lets try for getting pregnant in March...so I bought OPK's and just had them in the house...I was having some O type feeling down there on the 23rd of Feb so I used one, got a positive...we DTD the next night and two nights after that (24th & 26th). the next week i started taking tests like crazy, as the tests I have said it could tell up to 5 days after O...(Yeah right) I took 9 tests over a two week period, took a week off, then took another test the 10th of March and got my BFP (it was faint, but there) I called my dr two days later and the 15th went in for my bloodwork...when i called to get the results the nurse said congrats your numbers are low (but should be right on where you think you O'd)...We'll see you April 7th.
So on April 7th I went in for my first appt. I should have been like 7 weeks...well they found a HB...then the nurse says well I've found them as early as 6 weeks before...(I thought hmmm...yeah right)...so the dr comes in and starts doing the pressing on the abdomen and says you feel a solid 12-14 weeks (WHAT!), then does the internal exam and says yeah definitely at least 10 weeks but more towards the 12th...schedule her next week for an ultrasound...well I stopped him and asked him If i could really be that far along, he said its a possibility since I really don't know when I got pregnant, that maybe I'm that big cause there is more than one...that I need to go back next week for an ultrasound, but in the mean time do the full work up with more BETAS for the next appt...Well that's all fine and dandy, but my SO is in London (now he's stuck there) so I scheduled it for two weeks later so that he could be there, and now I've rescheduled it for this Wednesday (Hoping and praying he makes it home). They won't let me reschedule any longer.
I guess if you read all that, my real question is: Is it possible to get a BFN while breast feeding if your really pregnant? I must have taken a dozen tests between January and my BFP...were all those tests defective? I mean really? Why would I have felt as far along as I did? I usually measure under since I'm 6'2" and have alot of room to store little babies! Not that I'm overweight, cause I'm not...but really a good 7 weeks further along than I thought. GASP!
