For those of you who don’t know my husband and I decided to try for baby #7 earlier this year. While we didn’t really stop and get serious about it until recently, we have been thinking about it for the better part of a year and a half.
Back in June I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. We were over the moon. The kids were home when I took the test and someone over heard so of course the whole house knew within 2 minutes. Which was fine, or at least I thought it would be fine. July 17th the day I was 6 weeks pregnant I started bleeding. Not telling anyone I laid on my bed crying. My husband came in and told me I was going to the hospital. That night we found out we had a chemical pregnancy. There was no sac, no baby, no heartbeat and my HCG had dropped to 249.
We decided after we moved in August we would start trying again. October 16th after a few days of cramping and weird pains I took a test and it was positive. After last time I took tests every few days for 2 weeks, all positive and all got darker. Again we were thrilled and I was hopeful, but still wasn’t too sure it would actually progress. I had an ultrasound and it didn’t show anything. The report stated I was 4 weeks and everything was too small to be seen. A week later, I started spotting. I went to the ER where the spotting had stopped I was told I had a SCH bleed and my HCG was over 6,400. There was an empty sac in my uterus measuring 5w6d. Even though I should have been into my 7th week according to my cycles and later ovulation.
When I got home at 5am from the hospital the bleeding got worse, and I knew it was the end. Sure enough it was, and I miscarried.
Now here we are. My husband told me we would keep trying if I wanted to when he asked me when my next time to try would be and that’s when I realized we were about a week away from my fertile period starting. So, I headed over to Heatlthsnap.ca and ordered an ovulation kit. I had previously tried a different big name brand and was very disappointed. Not only did I try 4 different boxes, but only 1 actually worked the other 3? Died before my ovulation kit turned positive.
This ovulation kit has been amazing. Not only did it get my ovulation day spot on, it also didn’t stop working. I was impressed because I needed this test within a few days so I wasn’t sure how quick Healthsnap.ca would send it, or if I would miss starting the testing on time. But it showed up within a couple of days and I was able to start testing. Thankfully dealing with longer cycles means I don’t start wen the average person would. I got my smiley face and when I ejected the test you could even see the difference in the test lines.
I have been using cheap OPK tests as well but having a digital like the ClearBlue really helped put my mind at ease and take the guess work out of questioning how dark the lines were and if I was going to miss my window. Putting your trust in a company to make sure you get what you order in time and follow the timeline mentioned on their website is so important.
If you’ve ever TTC you know what that’s like. Thankfully, Healthsnap.ca came to my rescue and got the tests to my house on time, gave me peace of mind and now my TTC journey can continue. I’m not very hopeful for this cycle as I was really doing this to make sure I ovulated this month (as well as temping, charting and all that fun stuff) and I did. So, I think we will be good to try again next cycle.
The kit I got from Healthsnap.ca had 20 tests in it so I have enough to test next cycle. Which is fabulous and I noticed the price was a bit cheaper at Healthsnap.ca than I’d seen it on other websites in Canada.
