    Default DH and I decided no more kids...but...

    So I miscarried our 18 week old daughter April 18th.
    DH and I have BD'ed once a week with no protection.

    lLast week we (hubby's urging) decided that three children were enough.

    But I think I am pregnant. I have not had a period since the miscarriage.

    So I have some really odd symptoms.
    Wake hot and sweaty,
    Waking early to pee again,
    My boobs hurt, (not normal)
    Taking naps in afternoon. (Yesterday I took a 3 hr nap).

    Now what???

    I would definitely start testing to be sure and go from there .

    After a loss it's tough because sometimes cycles go right back to normal and other times they leave us guessing for weeks or even months . After a loss I always assumed I was fertile in the weeks following and had I bd-ed (even if it was only 1x/wk) I'd take a test 6wks after the loss if my period hadn't shown by then.

    I've been pg 22 times and the biggest thing I've learned is just when you think you know your body it can throw you for a loop , so going by symptoms is tricky business...I totally recommend you take a test so you can either decide what you want to do regarding the pg or move forward with more permanent bc measures if you're both certain your family is complete so you don't have to worry the possibility of an unplanned/unexpected pg again .

    Thinking of you and praying everything works out how you hope !

    Thanks Kelly,
    Wow 22 times!
    My cycles are 30-35 days.
    DH will be calling his Dr to schedule a vasectomy.

    I have $ store tests and test every other day. So far they have been all negative. I get a BFP on dollar store tests a week before AF should appear.
    But obviously that was before this miscarriage.

    I am having AF type discomfort last night and this morning...

    I miscarried April 18, she came out April 19 (my birthday).
    I tested 3 weeks 4 days later and got a BFN.

    Then to test for a new pregnancy I tested at 5 weeks and 5.3 weeks, both BFN.

    Today would make it 5 weeks 4 days since my miscarriage.

    So try at 6 weeks?
