Hallmark Movie and Ovulation

Last night I watched a movie on the Hallmark channel, it was called "Expecting a Miracle". The movie was about a couple struggling with Infertilty. It wasn't the best movie I had ever seen, but it was pretty good. Has anyone else seen this?

On another note, I think I ovulated this week. We are not really "trying" this cycle, I want my body to get back to normal after the miscarriage. I decided not to use OPK's this month but decided to go ahead and chart my temps just to see if I would ovulate and my temp went up on Tuesday. I also had quite a bit EWCM on Sunday & Monday. I was not expecting to ovulate so early, it was only 20 days after the miscarriage. The doctor said to expect my next period 6-8 weeks after the bleeding started. After my first miscarriage AF came exactly 6 weeks after bleeding started. So now I am a little confused when I should expect AF, usually my lutal phase is usually 11-14 days long so if thats the case this month AF should show up like 4 1/2 weeks after the miscarriage not 6-8weeks?

Insurance Frustrations

Health insurance is really frustrating, I do not understand how nothing is ever covered. The bills have started rolling in from the early HCG tests and from the ER visit in California. The ER in California wasn't in our "network", so nothing from that visit is covered, and they are only covering a small amount of the 4 HCG tests I had. I know this is probably just their "policy", but it really annoys me! I don't even want to think about what is yet to come with testing to figure out what (if anything) is causing the miscarriages, because I am sure insurance will cover nothing to do with that.

Here I go....

I don't really know where to start, I am not much of a writer so I don't know how this blogging thing is going to work for me. I have been reading a handful of IF blogs the last couple of months and decided it was time to start one of my own. I guess I will start with a little bit about myself. I am 22 years old (will be 23 in Feb.) My husband is 26.

May 2007- we got married!!!

Oct 2007-we decided to get off of BC, we were ready for a baby

Jan 23 2008- BFP, we were so excited

Jan 30 2008 (5weeks, 3 days) started bleeding, went into the doctor, we saw nothing on the

March 12 2008- first day of cycle after miscarriage, started trying again

March 08- Nov 08- TTC again with no luck, started to get impatient was waiting until Jan 08 to go back into OB/GYN

Dec 11 2008- BFP again!!

Dec 15 2008- HCG 90

Dec 17 2008- HCG 125 (not quite doubling)

Dec 19 2008- HCG 151 (still not doubling, started to get worried)

Dec 22 2008- HCG 472 (Well it more than doubling, supposed to go in on Jan 5th for an ultrasound hopefully to see the heart beat. DH and I were going to be out of town from Dec 27th- Jan 1st so that was the soonest we could go it.)

Dec 31 2008 - started spotting

Jan 1 2009- woke up bleeding more, decided to go to the ER (we were out of town in California, and supposed to get on a plane and fly back later that day). My HCG was 2716 (not as high as it should have been), did an ultrasound and saw a gestational sac and yolk sac they said it looked about 5 weeks, 3 days (I should have been 7 weeks 4 days, but I ovulate about day 21 so maybe it is just a little behind?) After we left the ER I started cramping and bleeding much heavier.

Jan 2 2009- back at home went into my ob/gyns office did and ultrasound and didn't see anything. Miscarriage 7 weeks 5 days.

So now after having 2 miscarriages in a year we are waiting for my next cycle to start testing to try to figure out if there is something causing the miscarriages. Looks like I am back to trying to be patient...
