Did just get some worrisome news this afternoon. My progesterone is low (don't know how low they didn't say) and I have started on Prometrium (progesterone) 100mg once a day. Hopefully everything will be okay... I know you can't maitain early pregnancy without enough progesterone..View Thread
I just wanted to send my last update. We had a sonogram today, and we heard the little heartbeat, very strong. My EDD is august 7th. I'm nine weeks right now. We took our daughter to the sonogram and she was so thrilled to hear the heartbeat and see her "friend", as she calls him/her. We are beyond excited. I have wanted this for over three years, even though we were only trying for 16 months since I was finishing school. I am very very sick and can't keep much down and am losing weight, but the doctor said the nausea is a very good sign. I send all the baby dust in the world to all of you. Hang in there!! my adivce is to try and RELAX. We never had any success until I quit charting, obessing and just had sex when we felt like it and when the CM looked good. Good luck to all of you and you will be in my prayers!!View Thread
I just happen to look in on here and saw your post and I wanted to make you feel better. I have O'd on CD 23 before, but not on clomid. So yes, it is possible to O that late. If you have PCOS, I'd say that it could be false (the OPK), but it seems like with the EWCM that you probably did O that late. I would just talk to the nurse or Dr on Monday if they are open and let them know. Maybe you still have a chance this round. Good luck!View Thread
I could always feel the follicles growing. I would get an ache or a dull pain in my rt side, around my ovary. Also, I used to monitor cervical mucuos - when it gets more abundant and slippery like egg whites, you are very fertile. I conceived and am now almost 8 weeks pregnant simply by monitoring CM. Also, you can start using OPK's (Ovulation predictor kits) to pinpoint when your LH surge is, telling you when you will be ovulating in the next 24-48 hrs. Good luck!View Thread
I didn't. I don't think it is twins, though. I found a beta HCG calculator, and my levels are more like one healthy baby, instead of two. That is totally fine with me, as the thought of being pregnant with twins honestly just freaks me out. I've heard so many stories of complications and its just an increased risk in my opinion. If it is twins, I will be delighted, but I will be more stressed and worried through the whole pregnancy than if it's just one. I'm doing really good. I'm assuming my levels are still climbing.. but the symptoms aren't very severe yet. Maybe they just won't be. With my first baby, I puked everything up and lost 15 lbs the first trimester! With my second, I threw up once. This time, I've been feeling somewhat nauseated, but nothing crippling. My main problem is that my back just hurts all the time.
I still think about you guys a lot and do my "lurking". I know how all of you feel. I thought once I was pregnant, my life would somehow be completely different. I told my mom the other day that it's odd that life goes on just the same. I've told my family after I found out the levels look really good, she also said my progesterone is really high. I just feel peaceful, like this is finally our baby. I can't even explain the peace I felt the month we conceived. It's like I just knew everything was going to work out the way it was suppose to.
We haven't told my daughter yet that she's going to be a sister. We want to wait until I'm farther along (I will be 6 weeks wednesday). But I've bought a shirt for her to wear - it says "This little sweetie is going to be a big sister!" I'm going to have her wear it to church when I'm 12 weeks, and see who notices first.
Hang in there everyone. Your day will come. It's not really sunk in for me yet I don't think. Maybe it will feel more real with I hear the heartbeat. They are doing a vaginal u/s on January 3rd. I'm so hoping and praying that everything will be normal and that they will be able to find a good solid heartbeat. I feel peace like I said, so whatever happens, is suppose to happen. Good luck all of you, you will be in my prayers.View Thread
I got some good news today. Last week, a day before AF was suppose to show, my level was HCG level was 26. Anything over 25 is pregnant, so I was just barely pregnant. They drew my level again today exactly one week later and it was 626! They said this was pretty high, and higher than normal. Your HCG level doubles every 48-72 hours - if it doubled every 48 hours from 26 over a week, it should have been around 300. But it was twice that! I'm wondering if this means twins?? We have ALOT of twins in our family, my side and my husbands side. So I guess I have to wait until Jan 3rd to find out!! They are doing a vaginal u/s. Keep us in your prayers! My boobs have started hurting, my back hurts and I feel sick when I don't have food on my stomach! Good luck everyone!!View Thread
