Pregnant after a Loss

Holy S*!# a bfp

Hi ladies!
Yesterday at 8 dpo I got a VERY faint positive. I couldn't believe it. I had a loss in June, so I am terrified right now. I want to get excited but I just am not letting myself.

I called my doctor immediately yesterday after I found out because she recommended I start progesterone. So tonight is my first night taking it. Has anyone taken it and did you experience Any of the side effects?

  • Congrats on the bfp!!  Exciting for sure!

    Wishing you all the best.

  • I definitely felt an increase in bloating but otherwise nothing really specific. I take it orally 400mg at night.

  • No side effects for me! Just some skin irritation if some leaked out and I didn't wash it off (over night). Congratulations!
  • Congratulations!!!  Deep Breaths. I took oral progesterone capsules until 14wks, I didn't have any side effects with them.

  • Congrats!!! And so sorry about your previous loss. I had a mc in June too. *BIG HUG*
  • Thanks everyone! I was thinking this morning, I got a positive hpt at 8 dpo. I am not expecting my period until November 14th, so that would be 2 weeks before my missed period. This is exactly what happened to me last time. It was so early, which makes me worry. I have a 34 day cycle. I'm so freaked. Has this happened to anyone? Having a positive way before your period?
  • I'm a dirty lurker here -- not pg at the moment.  Getting a BFP at 8dpo is fine (but I'm not a dr).  The issue is that the risk of losing a pregnancy is highest at the very early stages.  So being able to turn a test at 8dpo isn't bad, but KNOWING that early means you will be aware if you have a chemical pregnancy.  If I hadn't tested early for my second pregnancy, I would have just thought AF was a day late.

    I hope you have a very happy and healthy pregnancy.  I like to come to this board to see people like me getting happy endings.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.
