I am 26 years old. My husband and I have not been “careful” in about 4 years trying to conceive. We have not sought the help of any physicians either(I just figured it wasn’t going to happen). I am t1 and have been for 14yrs. I am also overweight and have been my entire life. I weighed about 300lbs. Last year I decided it was time to change and lost 50lbs. I wanted to lose more but I started to get slack about my diet and exercise.
My sister told me to start using ovulation testing to get pregnant. I never thought it would work. So on a whim I picked one up around the time I was supposed to be ovulating(I was using a cycle tracking app) and what do you know it said I was. So that was that.
I didn’t really think to much about it for the next couple of weeks. I had sore breast(thought my period was coming). Actually thought I started my period, I had some spotting. Again I never thought anything about it. I have PCOS along with my diabetes so my periods have never ever,ever been regular.
A few more weeks passed and I still had sore breast. I was exhausted every day and couldn’t keep my eyes open past 7pm. My husband jokingly said you need to pee on a stick. I say joking because at this point we both have resorted to humor when get comes to ttc. So a day or so later I was at the store getting ready to pick up a bottle of wine and head to a friends house for some girl time. It also hit my to pick up a pregnancy test and just see what if?
So I got home with the few thing I had picked up at the store and had to use the bathroom. So I grabbed a test.
I really couldn’t believe it. It was two pink lines right away. No way to second guess it.
I couldn’t believe it. I looked at it for probably 5 minutes. I even threw it away and then picked it out of the trash to look at it again. S
So instead of wine I went to my bestfriends house with another test in hand. I took another one. And again positive right off!! With my friends convermation. I was so surprised and excited. I just couldn’t believe it.
I went to the store pick up a card taped the test to the card and gave it to my husband as soon as he walked through the door.
Along with all the excitement was a deep fear. I had not been strict on my diet as of late and I had some pretty high bg’s. I went to the doctor immediately to make sure everything was ok. I thought I was around 8wks but actually I was only about 6. The ultrasound showed the gestational sack. But it was too early to see the heartbeat. So I had another ultrasound scheduled for 10 days to see the hearbeat.
Well the next day I started to bleed. Very light so I thought it was irritation from the ultrasound. But it continued and got heavier and I started to really cramp. It was actually pretty painful. I knew what was happening but I just didn’t want to believe it. I called my doctor to tell them what was happening.
So the appointment I intended to be hearing the baby’s heartbeat was now to verify my miscarriage.
It has been almost a year now and I haven’t conceived again(I haven’t really wanted to try). I have gained all the weight I lost. I am trying to lose weight again and get my bg back under control.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has had anything similar happen.
