The Weirdness Continues...

So, this cycle has been pretty weird. I had a solid week + of EWCM starting around 9-10 days after my (presumed) anovulatory "period" (so light I'm not sure you can call it that). I finally got fed up and bought OPKs for the first time ever. I test on the afternoon that I bought them and got a near positive. Tested the next morning and got a solid positive. DH and I BDed that afternoon when DD went down for her nap. :) Fingers crossed!

If the OPK is to be believed, I'm about 8 DPO right now. Last night I had some cramping and

Boo :( I was very hopeful that this would be a sticky BFP for you....Sorry that it seems not to be this time round - I know you must feel disappointed and sad, but good for you for keeping up the good outlook on it. I do believe that another BFP is just around the corner for you and it is encouraging that your body is trying to make it happen - this one wasn't quite right - prayers for you that the next one is.

Well, after having such a dark BFP yesterday afternoon I was feeling pretty positive. Combine that with the fact that the bleeding stopped later that evening, I really started to think it was going to be okay. This morning I woke up and tested immediately. Still positive but not dark. Then the bleeding started again and I just knew that was it. When

Oy! Waiting is difficult no matter what... the waiting you're doing with all these mixed signals... I can't even imagine!

Keep us posted, I'll continue to keep my crossables crossed!

Ugh. This is such torture! I talked to the nurse at my midwives' office and she said what I pretty much expected her to say... we'll have to wait and see. She said to monitor the bleeding and let them know if I started having pain or large clots but other than that just lay low and see if the HPT is still positive in a week.

So, I'm trying to take it easy (with a toddler, yeah right) but it's impossible to keep my mind off it. I'm sure I'll be helping to keep the Dollar Store in business by buying even MORE tests. I just took another test at noon and the line popped up even darker than the line I got this morning with FMU. If I were having an early miscarriage, would the line be getting darker?

I'm praying and crossing all my crossables. I know better than to let myself get my hopes up but it sure is hard to reign myself in. So far it's just been bleeding, no clots or tissue. That combined with the temp spike and increasing dark test lines gives me reason to believe that maybe I'll get my Christmas miracle after all. Oh please, oh please...

Even more mixed signals this morning...

I've been temping the last couple of weeks and the last two days my temp dipped to 97.8 and 97.7, respectively. This morning my temp was back up to 98.4.

Yesterday evening I went to Dollar Tree and picked up five HPTs (poor kid at the register must wonder what the heck my problem is, LOL). Tested this morning and the line was definitely there. Still faint, but darker than yesterday.

BUT... I'm still bleeding bright red and a fair amount. I think I'm going to call my midwives' office today and talk to a nurse. I have my mind set that it's probably a chemical pregnancy, but it's hard not to hold out hope. I just want to KNOW. If I'm having an early miscarriage, let's just get on with it. This emotional roller coaster of having a BFP but having a "period" at the same time is nuts.

I'll keep you ladies posted.

it could be a chemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage) but also it could just be a light bleed in early pregnancy.

i had a light bleed with #1 lasted about a week, it was red blood when i wiped. had an early scan and baby was ok and eventually it stopped. i

suppose its an only time will tell situation. keep testing to see if the lines get darker. be kind to yourself. the time might not just be right, but i am wishing you all the best and positive sticky vibes xxxx
