A nurse from Ob's office called told me beta was great, to start lovenox today, and that and no more were needed betas were needed. I almost hyperventilated. Told her I have had brown spotting and due to history would be more comfortable if I repeated at least one more time. She said she understood and to repeat whenever I wished.

Then she transfered me to set up viability u/s and nurse intake. With scheduling conflicts it got pushed back from 7wks to 8weeks. Crazy to plan that far ahead. I am somewhere between 4w4d and 5w1d depending on when I really ovulated. As of right now just going by LMP and it makes me 5w1d. So 3 more weeks before u/s.

Spotting stopped again for the most part. If it would go away I might feel a bit more relaxed. The next week and a half are going to be the most worrisome for me. Never made it past 6 weeks. Makes my stomach flip floppy to think about. I am kind of hopeful that if the spotting keeps up (even though I really think it is nothing) that they will get me in early.

Symptoms are about the same: nausea, crampy, light amounts of brown spotting, get dizzy if I move to quickly, sore bbs and nips, extreme fatigue, increased thirst, peeing more, and I am more regular than usual (praying this stays and constipation doesnt happen LOL).

I have several girls routing for twins LOL and if that is the case then it could be the cause of the spotting because spotting is more common in multiple pregnancies. Eeeeek. What if my prayer comes true. Could I be that blessed? Ladies I am beyond myself with just wanting everything to be okay.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I'd definitely keep doing the beta's Jess. At least until they are up in the thousands and still doubling.

I'm really surprised with your history that they wouldn't try to get you in for an ultrasound next week. I really hope the spotting goes away though.

AFM, I got my beta back today, almost exactly the number I thought it would be. I told my sister on Friday I figured it was 63. It was 61. I hope that means by next week it will be gone.

Also next week on Monday I go for my HSG. Then my DH is home on Wednesday in time for me to hopefully ovulate. :)

We had a discussion this morning about bedroom activity, and I kind of made him mad, so hopefully he'll still be up for the deed when he gets back.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hi Ladies,

Lisser - Good luck for Monday. Hope it goes well.

Jess - Yey although im jealous lol I am soooooooo pleased for you. Hope your feeling ok and not stressing too much hun

AFM - well when I went for my follow up pap smear the nurse said that I was 'O'ing but that was Thursday and I was getting EWCM on the Saturday which was 5 days before. So I either 'O'ed late or im totally getting my timings wrong, which would explain why its taking so long for a baby. hmmmmmm

Melissa - I cannot believe that hcg is still holding on! I am glad though that you got the hsg scheduled this month (and before the hubby gets back too!). I hope that the hsg is all you need for a natural bfp!

Karen - How have you monitored your ovulation? If you try to shoot to have sex every two or three days you should be good. The only things we did this month were the sperm friendly lube, we didnt have sex as much as usual, and I started drinking 2% milk instead of skim, and started taking a b complex at night and in the morning.

Victoria - thanks =) How are you and the LO doing?

AFM - M woke up late for school. But it worked out bc he needed to go get a random drug sccreen today. So I am going earllier than anticipated to go get blood drawn, but it means I will have my results earlier I suppose. It will be 5 hours before I went Sunday. *shrugs* oh well.

I took another test and it was a smidge darker...idk if the 88c ones get much darker than what I've been getting. But if it changes I wil let you know :-) 5w2d...when I had the blighted ovum the sack measured 6w1d so I have over a week before I will feel much more relaxed.

My mind is going a thousand miles a minute and my heart is so anxious just to kno everything is ok. So while I bought more tests to test, I also bought 3 onesies...1 for babies first easter on clearance, and one that says "Grandpa's little fishing buddy" and another that says, "Mommy's cranky. Daddy's gone. Call 1-800-GRANDMA." I thought they were cute and could be part of how we tell James's parents.

Fingers crossed for an excellent number Jess!! Stick, baby Stick!!

Karen, I wonder if the nurse was wrong? Do you get ovulation cramping?

Maybe try some OPK's for a couple of cycles and see if your own body signs line up with what the OPKs say.

*hugs*

Jess, did you use the calculator on here? It should double every 48-72 hours and yours came pretty darn close to 48 hours. The good news is that it went in the right direction, and by a whole lot! Keep hoping! Stick baby stick!

Get another done on Thursday, and see how it looks. I think that number is pretty awesome!

Hoping, hoping, hoping!
