I'm baaaack

*warning* - pregnancy test talk

Hello ladies. I took some time away from TB because I was wasting WAY too much time on the internet. Now I'm back to share my freak-out story as I wait for my obgyn appointment later this week.

To catch you up, I had a baby in april. I had the nexplanon implant in June, then it triggered postpartum depression and my mood took a major nosedive. After some doctor-shopping and insurance-haggling, I had the @$!#% thing removed and a paragard iud placed about a month ago.

Since then, I've had 2 episodes, about 10 days apart, of spotting. No AF. The 2nd looked a lot like implantation bleeding. I was suspicious enough to break open my last pregnancy test at home. And the stupid thing gave me an invalid result. No control line. Just a pink blurry smudge.

But in the trash the next day, there were clearly 2 pink lines. Plain as day. I immediately bought a drugstore cheapo and repeated it. Negative x2. I considered the matter done.

Except I feel pukey today and my boobs hurt to nurse. I have an obgyn appointment on Wednesday to check iud placement. In the meantime, I'm just, well, I don't know what to think.

DH and I would welcome a 3rd and we're still trying to decide on whether or not we would TTC again. But ugh. We'd have 3 under 3.

  • Lol well I'd be lying if I said I hadn't been there before. That's kinda how our third came to be. Minus the wacky birth control stuff and the blurry test. Whatever happens, I hope it works out well for you. That's an anxious wait for sure!!! I'm not going to sugar coat..3 is craziness but it's welcomed craziness.

  • Nice to see you again! And good luck today.
  • NEGATIVE!!! This was really a good trial of my real feelings about a 3rd. I've been on the fence, DH is all for it. My reaction to this scare was excited about a 3rd, terrified of how close together. Turns out it was a non-issue, but good to know for the future!

  • Phew - glad you got the result that you were looking for (for now).  I had a baby in April as well and can't imagine being pregnant again so soon!
