Tentatively Tip-Toeing In... — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Tentatively Tip-Toeing In...

I don't feel like it's real.

On Friday I had a very, very faint line on an IC. DH thought I was crazy. So I bought two digitals and got a + yesterday afternoon, and again this morning. I knew I'd be nervous - but right now I think it's also more like a numb disbelief. My last + was a very short CP in late March. I can't even allow myself to be excited yet. I haven't had a draw yet -  I'll call in on Monday. I had a huge temp. drop today, so I continue to be nervous.

My story in a nutshell: I'm nearing 37, married DH in Jan/10. Was pregnant last August and my due date is next Sunday on Mother's Day. Our son had Trisomy 18 and we lost him at 13 weeks. I began seeing an RE this month and had cycle monitoring and blood work. I guess I can cancel all my testing that I was supposed to have next week...

TTCAL has saved me these past six months. I don't know what I'd have done without the support I've received from everyone there.

Thanks for having me.

  • Yeah so happy for you! I'm iin the same boat as you. I had a very light positive a few days ago and DH didn't believe it so I took a digital and got a positive. I also had a very short pregnancy last time (February) so I'm pretty nervous too but so excited for you! Hope this is the one!

  • Congrats on your good news!  I understand how it's hard to be excited in the very beginning.  I just got my BFP last Thursday and I didn't believe it either at 1st nor did DH.  I've officially known about this pregnancy longer at this point than my last and that too is kinda scary, but a good scary!

    I wish you the best and hope you get to stay for a H & H 9 months!
