Hi I am new to your forum - I have a story and I cant get information anywhere else.

I had a m/c on the 5th of this month and I do believe that I ov bet CD8-CD11. I also had pain in my RS abdomen on CD 6...  I had positive opk and fertile CM and also CP was high. We BD on CD 7-8-9. And since CD 10 I have the most painful soreist BBS I have ever had, like cramping and shooting pains, and heaviness.. I am also having to urinate every 2 hours, even when I dont drink. I had pain and cramping in my abdomen-low center, for the week of CD11-CD17. CP is high again and sticky/a little thick. I am on CD19 right now (Nove 23) I dont know If I have really bad PMS since my m/c or what. But, I will add to this I started taking Vitex on CD3 and also b6 and b12, and raspberry tea. Tell me did I ovulate? MY CP was high CD 7-11. It dropped and then went back up on CD 17. I am soooooo confused. And My BBS hurt so bad.... I have never had this kinda pain before, Is this what the cycle is supposed to feel like? I only started keepin track this month, because I wanted to know when to BD... But, I am so confused.

I'm sorry that you m/ced. Your dates and everything kind of confused me.  I just wanted to say that I think you should consider BBT/CM charting.  That's going to be the best way to confirm that you O.  Also, do you know why you had the m/c?  Charting will let you know the length of your LP and whether it is long enough, and it may also show whether you have low progesterone.  Just a thought.  Hope this helps.

They did not tell me anything as to why. The doctor was very nice but he told me that there is a 25-30% chance of M/C at my age. I am just barely 36. Never had any probs before. I am going to start charting after this month... But I am so confused about this PMS thing. If I have it - it is the worst. I have never had it before. I am 24/25 day cycle and 1 day on and oneday off and one day on. Like clock work... I had bleed fo 1 full day of m/c. A little the day after. Then the nightmare month started... My BBS hurt so bad..

I haven't experienced a m/c so I don't personally know what your body goes through.  My guess is that it could just be PMS.  I've had more than one cycle when I thought I was pregnant b/c my breasts were sore and they usually are  not.  Well, here I am in my 5th month of TTC.  Sometimes my breasts are sore, sometimes they are not.  All I know is that now I don't assume every little "symptom" means my BFP is on its way.  I do hope you are able to figure out what is going  on.  Keep us posted on your situation.

all of you have a wonderul day and a wonderful thanksgiving holiday as well. i have been chuggin' along with this pregnancy, today i am 14 weeks, 1 day. i still have not felt any movement as far as the baby. i have not had any more bleeding episodes, so that's reassuring that all will be fine. anyways, when do you start feeling movement? this is my 4th child and they say that with each consecutive pregnancy that you feel movement sooner? when did all of you feel baby flutter for the first time. for some reason i cannot remember when i felt my boys for the first time. thanks ladies.

I first really started feeling this one around 17 weeks.  I had felt little flutter since 11 weeks but nothing major.  She is not as active as her brother was!

I'm glad you haven't had any more bleeding.  I was a little worried after my episode that I would have a period again at 16 weeks.  I did not.  Is this baby implanted on the same side the last one was?  They thought with me I had a period becuase this one is implanted on the other side than my first one was.

Welcome to the second Trimester!!!!!!!

I finally have a moment to get online to update everyone!  Well, doc looked again yesterday and still didn't see anything!  (This time, he only looked for 45 seconds, I counted!)  Frustrated and scared, he sent us to the hospital for a vaginal u/s.  I called my mom and she was frantic, so I had to calm her down while we were in the waiting room for an hour.  The doctor brought us in and the second he touched the equipment to my stomach, the little baby appeared!!!  Perfect, normal, and a strong heart beat!  180 bpm, is that high?  Well, the tech. said my doctor was probably looking too high and the hospital's equipment is much more sensitive and advanced than the doctor's.  Long story short, everyone's relieved and I want to thank all of you for keeping my feet grounded during this nerve-racking time.  It kinda' makes me mad that the doc doesn't have better equipment.  It would've saved me the worry and stress if he would've spent the extra money and got a better u/s machine.  Thank you all for your support and prayers.

YAY!!!!  Great news!!! I would consider getting a new OB!  

According to old wives tales on baby heart beats, you are having a girl!  

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah, I don't have internet at home, so the only time I can get on is at work.  I hope this is the most of my worries with this preg., but chances are it will be something else.  I've considered getting another OB, but I like my doc., so hopefully everything else goes fine with him.  I've heard most docs don't do the u/s themselves, they send you to a tech at the hospital or somewhere else.  We'll see how he does with the rest of this pregnancy, if he is terrible, I'll be sure to switch at least for the next one.  Thank you all again!

Great news that everything went well. I would not let your OB even attempt to perform another u/s on you as it's too much stress. It is, however, quite typical of u/s machines in a lot of docs offices.

Anna, in my opinion you're having a girl! A heart rate over 140 usually indicates girl (according to the old wive's tales) and with my DD it was always above 150- every single appointment! Are you planning on finding out?

What state do y'all live in.  I'm in Southern Californ and it is in the 80's - 90's durng the day.  The Country Musice Radio Station I listen to,  Monday starting playing only Christmas music until Christmas. They said without the music we may forget it is Christmas because it still feels like Summer.

Well, at least the stress is off.  If I were you though I wouldn't let him do the u/s next time - this is a time in your life when you don't need the added stress.  My OB always sent me to an actual u/s technician - all 3 times I've needed one - leave it to the people who do this all day every day!  

Heart rate sounds like your having a girl ;)

I started feeling this one right around 14-15 weeks. But it was just very occasional movements. It still isn't regular, but I do feel the baby much more now at 18 weeks..

BTW My U/S is in 5 days... Im getting so excited...
