Good News!!!

I haven't been able to get on and post all week because my internet at home has been broke. It has been killing me. Its been a crazy/great week!! Sunday morning we got a BFP!!!!!!! I took like 5 tests just because I love seeing it say "pregnant". So Monday I called and went in and got my first beta which was 1,900, yes 1,900 on day 29 about 16 or 17 dpo. So all of tuesday I was freaking out that this was too high. My doc said it was high and it could be more than one. I am great with having twins, and have always kind of thought I would have twins but more than twins scares me just because I want them to be healthy. So we went in Wednesday for the second beta I was worried it was going to triple or more since my first was so high but I got the call this morning and it was 4,026 which is just a little more than double, the tests were like 50 hrs apart. This is the first time my beta's have actually double like they were supposed to and it is a GREAT feeling. They are still really high but after doing ALOT of researching online and reading message boards I feel better about it, I read about tons of people that had numbers this high and had 1 or 2 babies. I will be so happy with however many we end up with and I know it is all in God's plan. So anyways we go in April 20th (6w 1d) for a ultrasound and see what is going on in there! Until then I will just have to be patient. This might be the hardest 2ww yet!

Hard day

I am having an extremly emotional/hard day. My best friend had her first baby today. I so excited for her and the little baby boy is precious and healthy! It has just brought up so many emotions, I was doing great this cycle being positive but today it really hit me that I should alreday have a baby that is 6 months old, or I should be about 20 weeks pregnant, but two miscarriages later I am still sitting here with no baby. :( My other really good friend is due any day so I will get to go through this emotional rollercoster again probably within the next week.

Also not helping the situation is the fact that I have NO idea if and when I ovulated? They gave me a trigger shot on CD 13 but my BBT is all over the place, It still hasn't really went up to my normal after ovulation range. One reason I think this could be is I started a new job on Monday morning, and I have to wake up at 5:30 instead of about 7:30. I know that temping at a different time even if it is as soon as you wake up can have an effect on the temp, so hopefully this is the case and my temps are just messed up becasue I have been taking them about 2 hours earlier than normal. We have been BDing about every other so hopefully we caught it if I did ovulate. I am going to try and stay really positive about this cycle and hope and pray for the best!!

CD 13 ultrasound

Well I just left my cd 13 ultrasound appointment. Great news it looks like clomid worked, I had 4-5 good follicles (18-21mm)! My lining also looked good it was an 8. They gave me 1/2 of a dose of the HCG trigger shot, So now we just get to BD and see what happens. They told me to wait until 36 hours after the trigger to BD but everything I have read online says to do it at 12 and 36 hours. What do you guys think?

Clomid Update

Well I took my last Clomid pill yesterday. I have had little to no side effects!!!! I was really worried about headaches, hot flashes, and moodiness all for nothing. I go in on Friday (CD 13) for an u/s to check on the follicles and maybe get a trigger shot. I am trying to stay positive and optimistic about this cycle. I will update Friday after my appointment.

I'm back!

I have been so busy lately I have not had time to post. I have been to 2 baby showers for good friends in the past 2 weeks. I made it though but hopefully by the next baby shower I will be pregnant! AF showed up yesterday, it was a 34 day cycle. I thought she was never going to show up even though I knew I wasn't pregnant I took 3 tests last week just to make sure! All of the tests (chromosome analysis and blood clotting test) came back normal. I know this is good, but part of me wished they would find something wrong so we would have an explanation for the miscarriages. On the TTC front I am starting Clomid this cycle. This will be my first experience with Clomid so all of you that have experience with it please leave me comments on what to expect. I am taking 50 mg days 5-9. I will update later this week on how that going.

HSG Normal!

Well I had my HSG this morning at 8:30. Everything was normal! I was pretty nervous and anxious about the procedure and everything I had read online. It wasn't too bad, but definantly uncomfortable and a little painful. I was cramping some for about 30 minutes but it seems to have died down a little, hopefully the worst is over. One annoying thing was the assistant that was helping with the procedure said afterward "Well it doesn't hurt as much as having a baby", and I was like Well... a baby would be great, I don't really care how much it hurts". I mean really who says that to someone who has had two miscarriages in the past year, seriously????

I am going in this afternoon for a couple of blood tests to try and figure out if anything is causing the miscarriages:
1. genetic test on DH and I
2. blood clotting disorder test on me

I am also having and HSG next Tuesday, I am really nervous about this. If anyone has had one and has any tips for me I would really appreciate them!!
