Look at all these BFPs!!!!! Congratulations ladies!!!!!

I’m on to CD 5 of cycle 10. 4th post MC. We haven’t been very aggressive with trying lately, maybe hitting the FW once if we’re lucky. We’re 6 months out from the wedding now and the excitement/pressure of that is kind of pushing TTC out of my mind for now. I lurk the boards, but don’t feel much need to contribute to a POAS or charters thread. We’re getting past the point of worrying about being hugely pregnant at the wedding so that’s good. At this point if it happens I’ll be thrilled but if it doesn’t happen until after the wedding that’s fine too. 🙂

Good luck to all you newly pregnant bees!!! I pray this is your rainbow baby!!!

Good morning bees! Today is a pregnancy milestone day for me (well tomorrow will be if I make it past today).

In my previous two pregnancies that ended in miscarriage I started spotting on CD 33 and CD 34 respectively. Today I’m on CD 34 of my current pregnancy and so far I don’t think I’ve had any spotting. Today feels like a big day. I’m waiting to see if I’ll start spotting on schedule with the other pregnancies (even though it’s impossible to compare them since I suspect I ovulated on different days in each cycle).

The morning started off on a “positive” note, with another positive FRER. This time the test line came out much darker than the control line, which I’m choosing to take as a promising sign. Tomorrow I’ll get my second beta test to find out of my levels are increasing properly. Please keep me in your thoughts!

@mysterybee123:  That’s great!  I was wondering how you were doing.  Congrats so far!

I just got my first blood draw yesterday (which would be approx 14 dpo) and it came in at 169.  Due to my history I have to take a folgard (high dose folic acid +B), progesterone taken vaginally, another oral medication to go along with the progesterone, baby asprin, vit d AND prenatals.  I am a walking medicine cabinet!  If that is what it takes to keep this pregnancy I’ll do it :).  I have had a bit of pinching pain that comes periodically over the last day, on my left side.  Would this be implantation at this point?  Just a bit nervous…

Is anyone else having cramping? I remember this vaguely from last time, I read that it’s just your uterus stretching out in preparation. I had a bad cramp that woke me up in the middle of the night last night. Otherwise it’s just the odd twinge here and there.

Did my 4th HCG/Progesterone draw today, at CD36 (5 weeks along?) my HCG is 3821 and Progesterone over 6000! I’m thrilled with the high numbers, way higher than last time. We’ll do an ultrasound and my first OB appt in a week on Halloween. 🙂 I know I’ll stay skeptical/nervous until we hit my milestones: 8 weeks when the baby died, and 11 weeks when my body finally caught on. Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone!!

@mtler:  Congrats a million times over and thank you for chiming in to put our worried minds at ease about cramping.

@BRbee:  Your numbers sound great! I’m going in for my 2nd draw today at CD 35 (although I think I’m a little behind schedule because I ovulated around CD 17 or 18 instead of the “standard” 14). I also have cramping, which of course worries me some but has started to seem normal for this pregnancy.

@sunshinebee:  Thanks for the support! Your first beta sounds like it’s in the normal range just like ine. When do you go back for your second one?

@mysterybee123:  thanks ladies! That really eases my mind. they do seem different than PMS cramps, at least to me. I’ll welcome any weird or uncomfortable symptom as long as it means a healthy babe at the end of the road!

I got the results of my second blood draw today, at 5 weeks exactly. My hcg levels look great! According to an online calculator they doubled every 27.4 hours in the past 3 days. My progesterone dropped slightly. It went from 20.6 to 18.43. The doctor said that is still in the normal range and that progesterone levels are not a good indicator of viability. I’m trying not to worry about the progesterone, and to just be happy that my hcg levels are rising more rapidly than they did in previous pregnancies.

I’m finally back in the game!! Just finished my rest cycle after my MC. DH and I are back to trying again. In a way its a relief to have things back to normal  In another, it’s nerve wracking. Obviously I want to get pregnant again, but that little voice in my head keeps saying but what if this happens again.  It’s a weird place to be in, but am am thankful we can try aGain.
