Anyone in the two week wait?

Are you considering having another child after preeclampsia? Trying again after preeclampsia can be an emotional challenge. You can find support with others who share your concerns here.

Well it's a bust this month. Another negative at 15 dpo. I guess all that spotting was a period? But it was waaaay early and I never had any flow whatsoever. Why oh why would my cycle pick this month- the month I start ttc- to go completely wacko?! Now I don't know what day to count as day 1 for the next cycle. I'll be calling the doctor tomorrow. :(

Hopefully Holly and Christa have better news.

aww! i'm sorry Kerisue! I'm still waiting. I will test on Tuesday, which will be 14dpo and cycle day 37. I'm not feeling very hopeful, I feel like AF is coming.

Ladies, I'll join you next cycle (am CD 18). I decided to pass this one (somehow I was not quite ready).

Kerisue, sorry to hear that you got a negative! Good luck to everybody else still in the game.

well... my AF never showed. I was on cycle day 36 and starting to get really annoyed. My temps were higher, but all over the place. My boobs hurt and I was VERY moody. So finally gave in on 13 dpo and I tested ...

It was positive!

I about peed my pants. I didn't update sooner because I was afraid that my blood test would come back low or show something bad. I decided today that I should tell you guys because even if that does happen it would be better to have all of your support than to go through all of that alone. I still don't know the results of blood work, but I just thought I would share.

Yay Christa! I'm so happy for you. That was really quick. Do you have Miracle Grow in there or something?

Keri, I hope next month will be your month. I feel very optimistic for you guys.
