  • If you are still bf your ovulation could be out of whack. One month could be on CD 15 and another on CD30. Do you chart or do ovulation test to know for sure that you have ovulated? I also got ALOT of false pos on $store test. Not sure what you are using but I remember taking pictures of alot of them and putting them on the TTC board and most everyone could always see the line but in fact I would go have a beat drawn and it would be <5 which is NOt pregnant.
    I did test with a dollar store test with this pregnancy but it was a lot different than the previous test. I didnt have to tilt the test or hold it under a light a certain way, it was pink not a brownish gray color. I hope that you get answers soon. I think if you arent already, start charting. It was so helpful when I was ttc!! GL

  • When I had a chemical pregnancy I still had very dark positives after I started bleeding. That is actually how I found out that I had been pg. I took a test after the bleeding started because something didn't feel right. The hcg should stay elevated for at least a week or so (according to my doc) and I was having blood draws every few days waiting for the hcg to go down after the bleeding stopped. So, IMHO I don't think it was a chemical pg.

    It's all so confusing, I know.

    I've also had a chemical pregnancy and I got definite positive tests, so if I had to guess, I'd think it was just a crazy, wacky period and not a chemical pregnancy. When you're nursing, your periods and ovulation can be really out of sync with their "normal" schedules so it's unreliable to go just by your period to calculate your cycle. If Athemia is still getting up in the night, even occasionally, charting would be virtually impossible, too.

    I know you're trying to conceive so if it were me, I'd probably call the doc and just check in. I suspect they'll tell you that until you're finished nursing, it's kind of a crap shoot as far as your periods are concerned.

    From personal experience, even though my period returned about 6 months pp with my first two (she hasn't come knocking yet this time around--I'm 5 1/2 months pp now), we weren't able to conceive until I completely weaned. And my periods were all kinds of funky during the time I was nursing.

    I hope you get that sticky BFP soon.

  • I would tell you the same thing as Deanna!

    You can't count on anything when you are nursing.
    If your cycle continues to be out of whack, I'd call the doc. If you really want to get pg again, you may have to wait until you are done nursing.

    I hope this gets resolved soon.

  • Hey I wonder if it has anything to do with the "possible endometriosis"? Just a thought ya know?

    I'm so sorry it sucks when you have to deal with that... I remember when we started TTC for Nolan and my FIRST cycle was over 65 days long!!! It was AWFUL and I was sure I was pg - and then all I got was total negative stark white tests!
