The day before my 9th wedding anniversary, I took a pregnancy test and was shocked when it came back positive. My co-workers had been telling me for 2 weeks to test, and I was in denial. I just had bariatric surgery in July and just never thought it would happen for us, especially this soon with all my body was going through.
Our 1st ultrasound showed an empty sac, so the tech told us that something was brewing, it was probably just too soon to see anything more. A week later we had our 2nd ultrasound and by that time we knew. There was still an empty sac, nothing inside. So after talking with my OB I opted for a D&C to remove the blighted ovum because I just wanted the experience behind us, I wanted to feel normal again.
I'm not 3 weeks post d&c and am wondering when my hormone levels will return to 0. I had some of the same issues going on Friday and Saturday that I had weeks ago before realizing I was pregnant. So yesterday I bought a test, expecting at most a faint positive line because I still had hormones in my body from the D&C. Instead it was an instant, bold. positive test. I'm still 99% certain that it's left-over hormones, but how long will they stick around?? I'll wait and test again in a few days to see if the line gets lighter.
I worry because 6 days post-procedure husband and I bd'd. It wasn't past the 2 week mark as instructed, but it was something I wanted and initiated and probably the most emotionally healing thing I've done for myself since the whole experience. I was honest with my doc about it at our 2 week follow up appointment. I've read all over where people have gotten pregnant again this soon... but I doubt I'm that person. Anyhow.. just wondering what other's experiences have been.
