I am not pregnant. However, I felt this might be the most appropriate board to post my questions on because I don't want to trigger the ladies on the TTGP board and I don't want to trigger the ladies on the TTCAL board.
So, my apologies in advance but, I've got quite the puzzle and I need some advice.
Additionally, I will try to keep this the brief cliff notes version but, I have to go into some back story for the questions to even make sense.
Okay here goes:
My husband and I struggled for 4 years to have baby #1. He was conceived naturally but, after some failed IUI attempts.
*Warning losses mentioned**
After that, I had a chemical pregnancy. After that, I had an ectopic pregnancy that resulted in the removal of my left fallopian tube.
Finally, after that I conceived my second son and carried to term.
We then started trying for baby #3.
I had another Chemical pregnancy. Then I had a blighted ovum. And then, I had another ectopic pregnancy and was told I would need IVF to get pregnant in the future.
At that point, my husband and I called it quits in the baby making department and I greived and finally accepted the fact that I could no longer have more children.
Fast forward, one year after my right (and last fallopian tube was removed) my husband and I started an open marriage.
I relied on my tubes being removed as contraception with my boyfriend. 3 months into our relationship, I got pregnant.
I misscarried again.
The problem is, I didn't get it confirmed with the doctor. I had numerous positive tests (not squinters and within the time limit of taking the test).
2 weeks late, I go to the doctor and my blood test came back at an HCG level of 1.
The following weekend, I had terrible cramps but no bleeding. A week after that, the bleeding began and I know from prior experience, I passed the sac and products of conception. The nurse told me either I was indeed pregnant or b) it was a false positive test.
2 months later, i again felt the symptoms of pregnancy. The day I expected my period, I took a test and again, within the time limit, another positive. Blaring. I still have the test.
My boyfriend chalked it up to a false positive. I started spotting the evening after I took the test and started full on bleeding the next day.
By this point, I think I've lost my mind or that perhaps he was right. Just a faulty test. So I waited a few days after bleeding, took another and it was snow white negative.
So my questions are 1) how common are false positives?
And 2) if they aren't false positives how the heck am I getting pregnant without fallopian tubes?
And 3) how on Earth do I possibly explain and ask all this to a doctor without sounding like a complete loon since I don't have fallopian tubes ???
Sorry, I know this is long. I'm just confused and truly have nowhere to turn to for advice.
