......and this is how a pants baby happens. Although I don't think you still get your period it's just blood from something else.

Can't wait to see you at the Melisser book signing!!

I can't believe that pee sticks aren't useful for multiples. Do you know why that is? I would imagine there is 2x as much HCG, but I know nothing.

now that i am looking i can only find anecdotal stuff. my midwife told me it was common for people pregnant with multiples to get false negatives on the pee sticks. I would imagine, though, thinking about it, that I and the other folks i know who told me the same thing happened to them were actively trying- and testing as soon as possible- too early for HCG to be measured well? ? i guess?
hang in there, kick that nausea in the butt regardless, oK?

Sniffing citrus always helped my nausea. I remember bringing a half of lemon to work with me once and sniffing it all day. I must've looked insane! ha!

Can't wait to hear how this saga turns out! We're here for ya either way!

Kelly - I did the same thing with lemons. I also used ice cubes. I would have a large cup of ice and sniff it during the day. I don't know what it was but it helped.

I just got the blood test results and although we are pregnant, my progesterone levels are really low, so they don't think it is a healthy pregnancy.

I'm going in to repeat the bloodwork tomorrow, but assuming it isn't a lab error, my doctor's office says that this will be one of the many pregnancies that ends in a miscarriage (whether natural or chemically induced). They are also concerned that it may be ectopic.

Has anyone else ever dealt with this? I feel like I have a ton of questions but am having a hard time figuring things out.

Oh, Tofulish. I'm so sorry.

One of my good friends had an ectopic pregnancy her first time around. It was very sad, but she's now pregnant with her third kid and all her subsequent pregnancies have been trouble-free. I'm thinking of you and your partner. Take good care of yourself. <3

Thanks! Its mildly annoying to have gone through a month of fatigue and nausea for nothing, but hey, this is the closest we've come in 2 years, so I'm trying to remember that this is a good confirmation that at least we've managed to get to conception, and if we've done it once we can do it again.

Clearly baby tofulish is going to be a marathon not a sprint...

I'm sorry :( I had one stillbirth and I think I had a miscarriage but I'm not sure about the miscarriage. They had some concerns early on about Livi and they seemed confused about some stuff, but clearly they were wrong.

This is a good thing to hold on to.

Really sorry to hear about the blood test results and I hope it's not an ectopic!

Yes. You can do it again. And it's awesome that you know your body well enough that you knew something was different this time, that it wasn't just pms or the flu. Whatever happens with this pregnancy, now you have a sense of how your body feels during early pregnancy, and you'll be better informed and prepared in the future.

Seriously, hugs and kisses to you and your partner.

Hugs, Tofulish. I will be thinking good thoughts for you and hope things turn out for the best, eventually.
If this pregnancy does turn out to be ectopic, you are so lucky to have been so attentive, especially since your urine tests were false negatives, and to have noticed it early!
