(Sorry its long, buuuuut having some outside views would be nice.)
I updated a post earlier, but figured I'd post an actual thread with extra details and more explaining. Maybe someone else is dealing with a similar situation? :s Part of this is a copy and paste to a reply earlier so I didn't have to retype a bunch, but I did more in depth explaining here.... buuuut then again I'm sure its smurf I've told some of you before. :s Ugh my mind is going a million miles an hour.
Okay, so I went to my OB earlier to figure out why my period is 6 days late but negative at home tests. He drew my blood and went over some options and possibilities. .If the blood test comes back negative hes gonna restart my cycle. (Because I probably didn't ovulate last month.) I'll take a hormone pill for 10 days. Then I'll bleed and my cycle will restart, day 1 being the day I start bleeding. So I'll know in a few days when the results come back. He says he thinks its weird too for me to be so late. So either my period will show up before the test comes back negative and itll be whatever, or it'll come back negative and well do a 10 day hormone replacement to restart my cycle since its all smurfed up if it is negative, or it'll come back positive and I'm pregnant. Just gotta wait and see.
I know I shouldn't be wigging out too much considering with both my girls I was right around two weeks late before I took positive hpts. Then, with my second little girl, I took TWELVE at home tests, all positive and a negative in the office. The blood tests came back positive but my hormones were lower than average and weren't doubling like they should and they actually had the audacity to tell me I was miscarrying with no proof except my quant hCG (I switched doctors). Everything obviously turned out fine.
To bring you up to date on me and why I'm so flustered with just being 6 days late and negative tests, I had surgery in September for having such crazy periods... I bleed for weeks on end. I always ovulate on time though, so not ovulating seems weird and missing a period is REALLY weird. That and, I'm epileptic and take medication for that, PTSD, and sleep. So I really do need to know immediately to cater to that.
Anyways... just updating. I'm crossing my fingers it comes back positive. I don't want to do 10 days of hormones replacement to just try again. With my second I got pregnant on my first cycle of trying and this is the first time in my life I've been introduced to reproductive problems. I'm only on my second cycle of really actively trying, but I haven't been preventing pregnancy either since May.... Before my surgery in September I did the 10 days of hormone therapy to stop bleeding because I had been bleeding for WEEKS, and now he's going to do the same thing to make me bleed. IF the test is negative. Which, come on... 6 days late. And I don't know if I'm having early pregnancy symptoms or PMS symptoms... they're the same to me, lol. Sore boobs, lower back pain, headache, moody.
ANYWAYS. Results back between Wednesday and Friday. They'd be in sooner but my doctor's gone for a few days.
