The sweetest sound

I had my ultrasound on Wednesday morning at my RE’s office. I really do have a tiny baby in there!!! TINY but with a little flickering heartbeat of 129! When the image first showed up on the screen I could clearly see the black circle that was the sac. My heart skipped a little beat [...]

The moment of truth approaches

Tomorrow is my first ultrasound. I’m excited, nervous, terrified, elated…I’m so anxious to see if everything is okay, if there is a tiny fluttering heartbeat in there. I feel pregnant, lots of symptoms–terrible gas (sorry!), sore breasts, exhausted, dizzy, some upset stomachs. And yet I’m so afraid that something is still not right, it will [...]

Joy

It’s finally sinking in. I really am pregnant! I had my beta level checked Friday and again today. Wednesday it was 12.7, Friday it was 53, and today it was 258! My progesterone was low on Friday (9), so they upped me to 200 mg of prometrium three times a day, but they are confidant [...]

Holding my breath

Why does this TWW seems so much longer than the others? 8 DPO today! My progesterone level is great, over 20 (they don’t count if it’s over 20 at my doctor). I took another cheapie HPT on Tuesday and it was still positive. However, since then my OPKs have started getting lighter, so I’m hoping [...]

Another Two Week Wait

I am 3 DPO, following my HCG trigger injection on Wednesday. The shot wasn’t a big deal. I was anxious about it, but in the end, I barely felt it. We followed our instructions about timed intercourse very carefully and now I’m back on prometrium to keep my progesterone level up. I will go in [...]
