It's not secondary...

Apparently I don't know my body or my cycles or anything at all.

Monday the 5th
After waiting for two additional weeks past when AF was suppose to happen I finally had my Provera & Clomid prescriptions filled. I woke up and POAS'd and it was negative. So I finally gave in and decided to take the Provera.

Wednesday the 7th
I take the first provera pill.

Sunday the 11th
I take the last provera pill. And then when dicussing with Kevin the time line I realize that I'm suppose to be ovulating on the 29th which is right when we'll be traveling to Kev's parents house. Not great timing and Kevin is a bit upset. So we decide that we're not going to use the clomid and just skip this round. It messes up our plans at Christmas (this is an English year) but what else can we do?

Tuesday the 13th
AF was suppose to show up today but hasn't. I'm not that concerned because I know it can take up to 10 days but it never has before. It's always shown up two days after the last provera.

Wednesday the 14th
GV is actually sleeping in this morning so when I woke up I had the sudden urge to test. I see the yogurt cup that I used for last week's test still next to the sink so I grab it and move to the toilet. Kevin walks in and gives me a look for testing again. I do the needful and then test it. I see the control line quickly but nothing on the test line so I dump the pee and start cleaning up. I'm reaching for the test to throw it away when I realize that I'm looking at two lines!

I call to Kevin and make him come back into the room to confirm that I am seeing two lines and not one. Kevin and I are both amazed and kind of in shock. We talk about this one in abstract. I call new-Dr.-G's office and set up an appointment with the NP on the 20th. They won't do a blood check till then. It's not till I hang up that I realize that it's right during GV's nap. That means Kevin wouldn't be able to go with me. So I call back and all they have is Friday at 10:30. I check Kevin's calendar and he's free. Kevin decides that we need to take one more test tomorrow just to be sure. You never know...

Thursday the 15th
Yesterday Kevin brought me home a new collection cup just in case the cup somehow is what caused the BFP. Test #2 is positive. The line is even darker this time.
Now this baby is real. So going off the fact that I got a BFN last week and a BFP this week does that mean I'm only 4 weeks along? Or do I still go from my LMP start date which means that I'm 9 weeks? Also what should I expect with having taken Provera? I'm not sure what to think but I'm happy. I haven't had morning sickness. I've been hungrier but chalked that up to my new exercise workout routine once I got that first BFN. My boops were sore earlier this week but thought it was because I slept wrong (yes I still sleep on my stomach). No nausea or food aversions.

I have so many questions for my doctor and it's killing me that I have to wait till next Friday to get them answered. I need Dr. Grrrr back!

Congrats! I bet this all has happened much quicker than you expected!

I followed a blogger that got pregnant on the pill (cancelled stimulated IUI, BCPs to manage hyperstimulation) and her baby was fine. (Actually, her baby was born prematurely, but I don't think that had anything to do with the BCPs.) So imagine that some exposure to provera is probably very low risk, but I hope your dr is able to give you something more scientific to make you at ease.

I would worry about how far along you are and just wait for a dating ultrasound since those are usually very close in early pregnancy.

Congrats again!

Wow, Congrats!!! I'm hoping I get that lucky.

Don't worry about Provera, it is just a progesterone supplement I believe and can't hurt. My Dr actually had me take Prometrium (another progesterone) the first 12wks of my first pregnancy. You could ask for your progesterone level to be checked just to be sure it doesn't drop unnecessarily with the stopping of Panera Provera. We just had a surprise bfp Monday after needing IUI for our first! Cheers to baby #2!

Also, Dr prescribed progesterone again just to help support the pregnancy until the placenta takes over after approximately 12wks.

Congrats on your BFP and good luck at your appointment. I hope you get your questions answered and your mind eased.

congratulations! i hope you can keep the worrying to a minimum until you see the doctor. i took a progesterone suppository for the first 6-7 weeks of this pregnancy and it clearly said on the box not to use while pregnant, but had been prescribed by my RE. xoxo.
